Enter into this magical Blue Zone© in the midst of the lush nature of Nosara, Costa Rica. 

Blue Spirit Retreat Center overlooks the great Pacific Mother. The Pranic life force of this sacred land of Nosara is a nourishing experience that can rejuvenate one deeply at a cellular level.

It is a healing land that calls you into the Inner sanctuary of your Being.

Join Sukhdev for a magical adventure as we explore the origins and Creative power of The Invincible Woman: The Adi Shakti. The Primal power that you are as a woman.

This teachings were given to us to vibrate peace and sacredness in our lives, even in turbulent times.

We will gather under the sun, the moon and stars, by the Ocean and find our way home to ourselves. Gently nourishing the parts of us that want to be tended to but may get overlooked in our busy everyday lives. 

The stillness you can find, the local foods that nourish, the land, the ocean waves and the bounty of starry nights are quite exquisite.  We will be together for 7 nights and seven days and re-member…together.

 

Hearts and minds open, we travel into ancient kundalini yoga teachings on a women’s grace and Power. Sacred songs, ancient mantras and practices that will guide us into a deeper experience of the center of our Being

I look forward to gathering with you!

In Joy & Laughter

The Invincible Woman:

Adi Shakti

You know there is a great power in you. You can no longer deny it. It calls you with great force.

Especially when those challenging cycles in your life surface.

What if you could radically change the way you view your suffering, your self sabotage moments, even your addictions. Learn to soften into them with acceptance and appreciation? It’s all based on having a relationship with your Soul.

Learn the tools to understand the hidden agendas, shadows and teachers which are ready to show you the way to your embodiment as the Adi Shakti.

What is Adi Shakti?

The Adi Shakti symbol was used for over 10,000 years before it was adopted and popularized by the Gurus of the Sikh tradition. It is a universal symbol that projects your mind into a state of expanded knowledge and ecstasy.

In some of the earliest spiritual traditions, a woman would stand on a hill dressed all in white with her arms raised upward in two 60 degree arcs. Her arms, head and spine formed the Adi Shakti symbol. They would meditate on that form and on the sacredness of the primal creative force of the Universe.

This is the Invincible Power Of A Woman


Learn the foundations of a lifestyle-based practice that supports healing, thriving and excelling in daily life. Come out of stress patterns and gain vitality to meet the demands of your life.

This is a level two retreat. If you are new you can start with one of our online programs to learn the Women’s foundational teachings before you join us.

This powerful weeklong retreat has its roots in Kundalini Yoga, in which you will dive heart-first into these ancient teachings of Kundalini Yoga, Meditation, Mantra, focusing on the Vitality & Stress level 2 teachings. As well as neuroscience, dance, daily Women’s circle and healing practices.

Together, we will strengthen the radiance of our presence which will prepare us to meet the challenges of our life and step boldly into our Destiny path.

You will leave with the tools to be a radiant light and a force to nurture and uplift.

FAQ

Q: Is yoga experience necessary?

A: Yes, you will want to have at least begun a practice of yoga. However, the yoga we teach, while challenging to each individual, will be accessible to practitioners at every level.

Q: Can I bring a partner or friend?

A: Absolutely! If you have a partner is a woman or you have a friend who wants to join, please ask them to apply and include your name in their application. Sharing this transformational week with someone close to you is such a gift.

Q: What is included in the price?

A: Prices start at $2,000 US, with various lodging options available. Your accommodations at Blue Spirit, all of your meals (with ample vegan and GF options), all lectures, yoga, and retreat activities are included. You should not need to spend more than a few dollars in addition to this cost while staying at Blue Spirit. 

Q: What is not included in this price?

A: Your transportation to and from Blue Spirit (air and ground), spa or excursion services, surf lessons, additional snacks, gift shop purchases and incidentals. We do like to venture into town as a group one night and dine out – you could easily find a lovely meal with tax and tip for less than $20 US.

Q: What about travel, vaccines, and money?

A: You will need a valid passport to travel to Costa Rica, but you will not need a Visa if you are coming from the US, Canada, or the European Union. The drinking water is good at Blue Spirit and in the nearby town of Playa Guiones, as it is in most of Costa Rica, and no additional vaccines are recommended. If you’re planning to spend time off site, you may want to get some Costa Rican Colones, although US dollars are widely accepted both at Blue Spirit and in the surrounding community.

Q: Will I need air conditioning?

A: Blue Spirit offers lodging options with and without A/C, and the common areas are primarily open air, no A/C. Fans are provided in the rooms without A/C, but only you know yourself. If you’re quite accustomed to a cool sleeping environment, you may prefer a lodging option that includes A/C. We have never felt overburdened by heat in any of the lodging options.

Q: What should I bring?

A: Beach clothing, yoga clothing (shorts), slip on shoes and your camera! You can leave your shampoo and soap at home, because luxurious and eco-friendly options are provided (and required) to help protect the turtle sanctuary at Blue Spirit. Yoga mats and props are also provided, as are bath towels. Beach towels are available for purchase in the gift shop. There are no laundry facilities, so we recommend packing accordingly. You can always walk or arrange for a car to go into Playa Guiones (about an hour walk on the beach, or about a 12-minute car ride) if you need incidentals that are not available in the beautiful gift shop.

Q: Are there places to stay before and after?

A: Playa Guiones has many wonderful places to stay at all price points. Blue Spirit may have a room available for you before and after, although the property is only open to those attending retreats. There are budget-friendly hostels, luxury hotels, and yoga retreat properties all within a 30 minute drive of Blue Spirit.

Q: Where do I fly into? What is the best way to get to Blue Spirit?

A: – Liberia (LIR) is a 2.5 hour ride away from the retreat center. You can arrange round-trip shuttle transportation with Blue Spirit, which is very comfortable.
– San Jose (SJO), about a one-hour charter flight away.
