This retreat has been designed to enable the reciprocal healing relationship with nature to unfold (you heal nature while nature heals you).
During our 7 days together, you will give yourself a break from the demands and distractions of home. We’ll work one-on-one to understand what blocks you, specifically, from achieving your goals and/or prioritizing your self care, and then work through releasing those blocks. And as a group we’ll explore how you can take the lessons you have learned home with you to apply to your everyday, so that you can live a more fulfilled and elated life without sacrificing your relationships or lifestyle.
Join us at Healing & Hatching: Costa Rica 2019, where you will experience your own personal healing while also healing our planet!
June 4 – 10, 2019
Set in a remote tropical rainforest on a Caribbean beach, this is an opportunity to return home to yourself…to the gratitude, peace and wisdom that lives beneath the layers of culture, consumption and (self-) criticism. As a participant, you will collect eggs to be kept safe at the hatchery, release hatchling sea turtles back to the ocean, and assist conservationists in returning the population of Leatherbacks back to a thriving species.
Join Certified Life Coach, Jennifer Bauer, and environmental researchers for a transformative vacation adventure of self-and-nature-conservation.

The location of the retreat is at a research station, which is fairly remote and isolated. The rooms are basic and you will be expected to participate in cleaning up dishes after meals. The station has limited electricity, no hot water, and no internet. Bathrooms are basic and semi-private (shared between two rooms). Meals are simple and often include a meat (such as chicken or beef) along with rice and beans, cabbage salad, and plantains. The station is in the rainforest, which is exposed to insects that may venture into the rooms (mosquito nets are provided).
Often it takes disconnection from our everyday luxuries and distractions combined with service to a greater good in order to reconnect to ourselves, our priorities and find the joy and fulfillment we’ve been seeking. I know from personal experience that my gratitude grows exponentially when I am given opportunities to see what I take for granted (yes, hot showers and king sized beds are distant dreams for many people on this planet). Distance from distractions also gives space for healing and insights. That is my hope and intention for those who join me on this retreat to experience as well.
