A Relaxed Schedule with 12-Step Recovery
Experience a “happy, joyous and free” retreat in beautiful Nosara, Costa, Rica. Janel and Horace are your guides. We offer an authentic group experience designed to enrich your relationship with your “Higher Power” but with plenty of time to explore the many activities in our wonderful community.
About Your Week
Every morning you will have the option to rise early to explore the many activities available here in Nosara. Typically we go for a short walk to the beach to either surf, enjoy the tide pools or go for a nice morning walk. Surf lessons are available from any of the several local surf schools if you want to improve your surfing or to learn to surf for the first time. Playa Guiones is an excellent beach to learn to surf. At 9:30 am there is a 75 minute yoga practice relating yoga to 12-Step Recovery with focus on using yoga, mediation and breathing exercises to deepen your relationship with your Higher Power. There is free time from 10:45 to Noon to eat, explore or rest and relax. There is a 12-Step Meeting everyday at Noon. Monday, Wednesday and Friday we will attend the local Sober Surfers 12_Step meeting a short walk from our retreat. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday we will have our own 12-Step Meeting among the retreat participants. The focus of these meetings will be strengthening our relationships with each of our own personal Higher Power. One to four PM is free time to do what ever your heart desires. We will have a group meditation everyday from 4:00 to 4:30 PM.
Janel and Horace will lead you through the daily yoga, meditation and 12-Step Meetings. You are free to choose from any of the myriad of additional activities. You are on your own for all meals.
