Begin Again Retreat

Friends, we are so excited to return to this lovely country and to beautiful Finca Mia to offer another Begin Again retreat in 2015.

Our retreat will be held January 8th-14th.

Our whole winter was made SO much more enjoyable by this lovely trip to Costa Rican summertime. Truly, best January ever.
The food!?! Locally grown, organic, delicious – felt like SUCH a boost to our health just to eat the amazing food! The green everywhere you turn! The beauty of nature!!! The time to just be! Just what the doctor ordered, especially in January! We spent a few extra days at the beach before heading to the mountain retreat center, and highly recommend it if you can take the time.
