The Healing Medicine Retreat

For healthcare leaders who are feeling called to step into their highest potential on the trip of a lifetime.

A transformational week in paradise, designed to help you create sustainable, healthy shifts in your life and business in an intimate gathering of like-minded entrepreneurs.

February 3-10, 2024

Playa Buena Vista, Samara, Costa Rica

This experience gives you the chance to have uninterrupted discussions about past, present and future choices.

It provides a space for rejuvenation and invites gentle soul-searching.

We are committed to helping attendees break through barriers to wellness for themselves, their families, and their clients.

This thoughtfully crafted interprofessional well-being retreat is perfect for healthcare leaders who want to integrate methods of healing into their modern practice.

Imagine becoming totally present in the moment as you notice yourself enjoying a relaxing sunset with your new soul sisters in one of our newly designed, eco-inspired gathering spaces, with the sounds of howler monkeys gathering their own families for a night of rest in the towering canopy of the sacred Guanacaste tree above…

…as your first day in Costa Rica, spent exploring the verdant labyrinth and magical spaces of Con Smania CR, comes to a close.

You reflect on a day spent connecting deeply with new friends and old, recounting your intention to travel down to the Central American rainforest to join the Healing Medicine Retreat — excited about the new tools you can’t wait to use in your transformational vision for your own clients!

You feel a sense of inner peace and deep knowing that comes with feeling empowered, committed, and supported to do your very best Work…

Releasing your blocks and overwhelm and feeling the happy-tired excitement of self-reinvention…

As you let it all go, feed your soul by dining at a jungle-side restaurant with your new Retreat family at the highly anticipated Chef’s Delight Welcome Dinner.

Yes…your transformation process can start today!

Our exclusive, small group event gives attendees the opportunity to gain valuable insights from leading professionals on topics such as:

  • Stress management strategies
  • Impact of self-care practices 
  • Creative approaches to reducing burnout
  • Mindfulness and the role of collaboration in modern healthcare

In addition to our expert-led sessions, attendees will enjoy daily movement, culinary medicine, and team-building experiences to create a foundation for living your best life.


From cooking classes with local vegan chefs to unique outdoor adventures, this is a vacation you won’t need a vacation from.  You’re guaranteed to leave feeling relaxed, energized, and with the tools to step into your highest potential.

We invite you to intentionally set aside the week of February 3rd – 10th, 2024 to give yourself space to deepen your relationship with Self to create the most authentic expression of your fullest potential.

Explore new possibilities by granting yourself time and space in the magical retreat space of Con Smania Costa Rica.

Deepen your connection to your own nature and connect with other women in medicine. Integrate this newfound ease and confidence organically by learning techniques you can use long after you return home.

Spend one week in paradise next February to light your successful career path by joining a collective of professionals who are healing medicine by aligning their beliefs and their practice of healthcare.

When we take time away from routines and expectations to intentionally surround ourselves with a group committed to self-development and growth, extraordinary things happen quickly.

Retreats allow precious TIME for big breakthroughs and new perspectives.

Retreats are reenergizing check-ins that allow you to reassess your goals and values.

Retreats help us redirect our frenetic externally-focused energy and re-focus it internally to amplify our self-care needs.

Like an enzyme, retreats CATALYZE the growth process by stripping away the old stories and habits by making space to create new ones that serve us better.

A good retreat helps you assess where you are today, show gratitude for how far you have come, and take your next steps in manifesting the life and career of your dreams.

Does this sound like you?

You are burnt out from the traditional healthcare model.

You are still dedicated to providing the very best care for your patients, but not at the expense of your own health.

You dream of serving those who are grateful for your help.

You love exploring the world, new cultures, and ideas.

…and you are excited by the idea of traveling to the rainforests and jungles of Costa Rica.

You connect with the energy of special places that spark the imagination.

You understand the power of seeking the support of others who lift you up and encourage you to be your best self.

You are ready to prioritize time for yourself to focus on creating the Business of Your Dreams.

If this resonates, we invite you to take part…

A week to tap into the business savvy of coaches and consultants with decades of experience and thousands of clients between them.  These facilitators will guide your group’s journey, pulling back the curtain on what it takes to reinvent your career in healthcare, with the support you have been craving.

Connect with the group and meet potential collaborators, friends, and possibly even a business partner! Work with Blair to tap into a bigger vision for your Life’s Work. 

Experience how we facilitate an experience for establishing safe and sacred spaces and get ideas for hosting your own groups.

Join us to explore the area, participate in group experiences, enjoy locally grown and prepared meals, and give yourself space to grow into the fullest expression of your healing gifts.

We Hold Space, Within A Sacred Space, To Allow You Space to Grow.

What you are going to walk away with

So what can you expect if you spend 7 inspiring days and nights focused on reinventing your health and healing career in medicine?

→ The EXACT support you need to create a career you don’t want to escape from.

→ Connection with skilled mentors and collaborators to produce a movement that is far more than the sum of its parts.

The Venue…

Tantalize your senses and transform into your best self in one of Earth’s most restorative destinations… the beautiful and lush Blue Zone of Costa Rica. The air is cleaner and fresher, the sun is brighter, and the energy is more vibrant. It’s the ideal place to activate your greatest potential and honor your deepest purpose.

You’ll join us at a property experiencing its own transformation… from hotel to retreat center:

Con Smania CR. The physical manifestation of the life’s work of our managing partner in supporting others so they can share their mission with the world. Each structure is unique and positively invites exploration through winding paths and gorgeous landscaping.

Bordered by our own landing strip and very few neighbors, this safe and sacred space is also just a 10-minute stroll to the Pacific Ocean.

Guanacaste trees shade the property and provide a home to a variety of wildlife, including howler monkeys, parrots, iguanas and so much more.

From hidden meditation spots to the grand and magnificent main building of Haven, there is so much to explore on the property.

We’ll also explore the local culture in the nearby town of Nosara for some fun and shopping.

Enjoy the local beach, wander through the rainforest, enjoy a body-work massage, or simply lounge at our unique and fun pool for the rest you deserve.

The Food and Meals…

Inspired by the ingredients that make this one of the world’s five Blue Zones, our Costa Rican chef designs plant-based meals that burst with flavor and texture. Get a chance to taste your way through the possibilities on offer. We believe in honoring the land through connecting closer to source in all ways. Buffet style, we encourage you to take what you need knowing you can always return for more.

Enjoy community lunches in our front jungle-side restaurant and private dinners in the main building.

In the morning or for a refreshing snack, blend our favorite detoxifying coconut water smoothie using locally grown fruits and greens at the poolside smoothie station.

Let us surprise and inspire you by our Pura Vida approach to treating food as medicine!
