RADIANCE ~ Writing & Renewal in Costa Rica : January 18-24, 2017

Under the Same Moon presents …


Writing & Renewal

at Sunflower Retreats in Costa Rica

with Janet Lucy and Sarah Clark

January 18 ~ 24, 2017

As the new year begins, Costa Rica calls us to the jungle and the sea, where we will settle into Sunflower Retreats, a luscious eco-resort on the southern tip of the Nicoya Península. A mosaic of rainforest, rolling hills, mountains and creeks surround the resort with lookout points to the Pacific Ocean and beaches of Mal Pais. The eco-friendly lodge, used exclusively by Sunflower Retreats guests, offers four spacious double rooms with a front sitting porch slung with hammocks and rocking chairs facing the butterfly and hummingbird gardens. A waterfall jacuzzi and swimming pool are steps away. Here we will write, relax, and re-source ourselves together as we discover and celebrate our connections with the cycles of nature–the sun and moon, oceans and tides, and our inner ebbs and flows. Under the Balsamic Moon we’ll look inward and gaze out into the starry sky, dreaming our seeds and visions for the new year.

We invite you to join us in an intimate circle of like-spirited women for six spacious days and nights with a menu of creative inspiration and delicious delights, remembering that we are our most radiant beings when we are true to our selves, and honor our divine feminine rhythms. Our focus will be on the essential renewal and re-sourcing of our intrinsic radiance.
