Thanksgiving retreat

A 7-Day Yoga and Recovery Journey

November 20 - 27, 2021

Nosara, Costa Rica

Space is limited.

After having to pause our decade-long Thanksgiving tradition in 2020, we cannot be more grateful in this moment for the gift of gathering.

This experience is an invitation for remembrance, a recommitment to the path, and an opportunity to be fully present with a group of people on the path of recovery. Come join us for a week of dedicated practice, Universal 12 Step Meetings, transformational processes, music, meditation, amazing food, and lots of laughter. 

We look forward to seeing you where the jungle meets the sea at the Blue Spirit Retreat Center

“The Costa Rica retreat to Blue Spirit with Kia and Tommy was one of the best experiences of any kind I've ever been on.”
- Retreat Participant

WHAT TO EXPECT

Renewal. Return to balance. Practice. Music. Nature. Community. This retreat will focus on yoga, meditation and other activities that create transformation and lead us into harmony.

It is more important than ever to come together to heal, release, and connect. This is an immersive transformational experience of a life time.

EXPERIENCE

Our greatest joy is to share in the bounty of life in community. This retreat is the centerpiece of that experience. We go deep into practice together immersed in nature and support each other in the joy of living life more fully.
"The trip was nourishing at all levels from the physical layer through to the blissful core. Costa Rica, the monkeys, the food, the ocean, the energy and community all lovingly interwoven by Kia and Tommy, and the amazing music of Aykanna.”
- Brenda E.
