MAKE SHIFT HAPPEN

Empowering Retreats for Extraordinary Women

If you’re a dynamic woman who can’t seem to breakthrough the troubling effects of past experiences, but you’re ready to stand in your light, in your purpose, and in your power–then join us in the exotic rainforest of Costa Rica for this unforgettable opportunity to make that shift. Imagine waking up refreshed, hearing the nearby river, birds and maybe even monkeys! An uplifting energy fills your whole being as it soaks in the high vibrations of the mountains and magnificent trees around you. It’s the start of a new day, you are feeling ease within your body, and your mind is clear as you excitedly share with your new friends about a future possibility you now have clarity on. As the morning yoga begins, you slowly exhale and you realize, at last, you’re free.

You won’t believe the difference our individualized approach based on intensive one-on-one sessions with the most highly trained, solution-focused and heart-centered mind and body professionals. Due to past events or many events you may have put an incredible amount of energy and effort into countless counseling sessions, books or programs that haven’t brought you to where you know you can be. The emotional intensity continues and often can’t stop thinking about that troubling thing, it may have begun to show itself in physical symptoms such as fatigue, trouble sleeping, digestive issues, and aches and pains. This retreat was created to provide a complete shift in mind and body, from the root cause on a neurophysiological level. You will instantaneously experience a shift in how you are feeling in thinking during your time in Costa Rica, and the freedom, joy and peace that is created will last long after you get home.

This unmissable retreat experience is specially designed for you to wake up and restore you to being YOU, and alleviate the emotional weight so that your true self can expand. Let the world see it and feel it, while you elevate others in the process. As the most highly trained Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT) professionals, we come with the RRT mindset and do not believe on going into the pain of the past, the solution is not in the past, we are intending to cause immediate shifts forward. Please join only if you are open-minded to the creation of new possibilities. If you are not interested in outdoor adventures, new and different mind and body alternatives, want to stay in “the story” of what happened, or would like to just spend the week hanging out on the beach, this retreat IS NOT for you.

There is something about the magical energy in Costa Rica that will provide you with complete mind and body transformations while building life-long friendships. We intend that you have a powerful experience not only in Costa Rica, but that the transformational effects last long-after getting back home. Each aspect of the retreat is precisely created to alleviate and clear automatic responses within the mind and body and restore it to its natural and optimal state.

Rapid Resolution Therapy

Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT) is a pragmatic and experiential approach derived from science and philosophy. RRT shifts the way the mind processes information so that improvements in thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are natural and automatic. During experiences that causes a huge emotional impact, the brain and body isn’t biologically wired to process information immediately and fully. It gets stuck on the subconscious level, or within the limbic system, where emotions are generated. The emotional response continues to show up even though those experiences are no longer happening. RRT gently and painlessly reaches that deeper level so there is no longer an emotional or physiological responds to events that are no longer happening. It is a fast and effective treatment for many of life’s challenges, instantaneously creating clarity, freedom, power, and illumination of you to shine.

We have the top RRT practitioners out of the Institute for Rapid Resolution Therapy at this retreat.

Walking the Spiral with your chosen horse to release what is no longer of value to you, meditate together in the middle, and walk out with new intentions. Your horse will provide feedback and raise your vibrations. It may also include an Emotional Challenge Course with your horse, getting through emotional obstacles to connect with your true self.

Equine Therapist Horses – The True Connectors and Teachers

How We Are Different

Make Shift Happen specifically treats the underlying issues that cause emotional disturbance and negative thought patterns. We believe that these issues are rooted within the physiology of the body and from neurological wiring. We strongly believe that each woman is not wounded but is whole, indivisible, unbreakable and that they have everything they need already within them. As we understand how troubling experiences affect the mind and body on a deeper biological level, it is our top priority to regulate the body and create rewiring of emotional states so that inner power can be accessed. Those who join us receive one-on-one holistic treatments that cannot be found at any other retreats. It’s not about understanding at an intellectual level, it’s about shifting on an emotional level and releasing stored responses in the body.

The Venue

Hotel Villas Lapas is tucked down into a valley within the rainforest. It is known worldwide for bird-watching as much of the exotic Costa Rican wildlife flourishes in the area. We will stay in our own private retreat area across the river walkway, where we will have our own private area for personal expansion. You will have your own spacious room with one comfortable king sized bed and walk-in shower. Accommodations are not luxury, but comfortable and perfect to have your personal space for renewal. Free WiFi is available, but we invite you to do a digital detox to optimize your time here. We will dine in an open-air area over looking the river. Foods will be local Costa Rican flare, expect lots of local fruits, beans and rice, salad, meats and eggs, but we will also have vegetarian options. We intend on making this the best, most life-changing and raw experience as possible. With that being our main focus and not luxuries we may be accustomed to outside of Costa Rica, please know we may not be able to accommodate all special requests.

Flights:

Arrive into the San Jose Airport (SJO) on Sunday July 21st before 4pm, if possible, so we can pick you up and you can get settled in before dinner. We Recommend you depart July 28th,  after breakfast, but you may only be able to find an early morning flight (please fly only in and out of SJO). We’ll have two airport pick-ups on July 21st, and if you are not arriving in time to be on those transports, we can help you arrange your own taxi to the hotel (at your cost). The same applies to going home. We will let you know your pickup time from the airport and departure time going home once we have everyone’s flight information. Our local guide and driver, Hanzel, will be outside the airport waiting for you. After you pick up your baggage and walk through the doors from the rental cars, he will be standing there with a sign that will have your name. If you would like to stay later for some exploring on your own – we can give some suggestions to help you design something fabulous as well as make sure that you actually end up in Costa Rica at the right time and in the right place!

What’s Included:

  • Your own private spacious room.
  • 2 – 2 hour Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT) sessions with one of the top rated RRT practitioners in the U.S.

It’s important to give back to the local communities and environments that we visit, so there will be a day of volunteer work at the local wildlife rescue.

Set Intentions, Not Resolutions. A resolution is a set point of view that restricts you to what’s within that. An intention puts you in forward motion for other possibilities to show up. Just intending on it, you’re already on the way. Where ever the mind goes, the energy flows…. One of my favorite meditations on creating intentions, so you are on the way to what’s intended in 2019!
