Transformation ought to be playful and profound and in service to communities beyond just your own. That is the Hero’s Journey, after all.”

“I was struggling with my body image and doing things for other people before consulting with my own needs. Mary’s workshops helped me realize what I really wanted and needed by accessing my subconscious needs.It is easy to hate on ourselves, but it’s harder to work through our problems.

Now, I am excited to use my newfound beliefs, my self-love promise, and to set intentions daily, monthly, and for my life. I know that I am deserving of the self-love and respect that I so freely give to others.”

Master’s in Psychology student, Sedona Self-Love Retreat Sister

Maria

I was struggling with my body image and doing things for other people before consulting with my own needs. 

“I’ve been told I am some pretty appalling things… “fat.” “disgusting,” not worthy of love, etc… BUT being in Bali amongst some of the strongest and most resilient women I’ve ever met has taught me that other people’s beliefs don’t define who I am. I will forever be grateful to Mary for organizing this self-love retreat to help the 16 of us collectively heal and eventually overcome our traumas, whatever they may be. This has been the most emotional, yet joyful week of my life!

Esthetician, Mom, Bali Self-Love Retreat Sister

Kirstin

This has been the most emotional, yet joyful week of my life!

“Before the self-love retreat Mary hosted in Sedona, there’s been a lot of negative talk in my life the past 3 years as I’ve gone through my divorce. The constant messages of “I am enough”, reminders to love myself and have compassion on myself have helped me so much. Now, I feel more grounded. I respect myself more. I won’t give of myself to anyone who doesn’t deserve me.”

Physical Therapist, Mom, Sedona Self-Love Retreat Sister

Sharon

I feel more grounded. I respect myself more.

“Mary’s self-love retreat showed me how much I was struggling with hanging onto the past…heartbreaks, family struggles, inner battles, etc. What helped me the most was doing group activities where we all contributed and we finally felt that none of us were alone in our struggles. Now, I’m happy to say that I am setting myself free!”

Business student, Sedona Self-Love Retreat Sister

Justina

I’m happy to say that I am setting myself free!

“I am so thankful for this week of experiences that gave me the space, strength, and support to truly let go of some shit that was buried so deep, but yet still affecting my daily thoughts and actions. I cried so many tears that I genuinely thought I was done with, but this time instead of crying from sadness and pain, the tears brought me cleansing, peace, and clarity. Self-love is magic!!”

Social Worker, Mom, Bali Self-Love Retreat Sister

Iliana

instead of crying from sadness and pain, the tears brought me cleansing, peace, and clarity.

“I was struggling with my family, work, life, and how “me” fits into all of that. The entire self-love retreat process helped me because each activity was intentionally geared towards transforming inner struggles into inner peace and learning how to deal with daily issues that we all go through.”

Nurse Practitioner, Mom, Sedona Self-Love Retreat Sister

Alice

I was struggling with my family, work, life, and how “me” fits into all of that.

“If someone is thinking about joining the retreat, I would tell them to take the leap of faith. I’m glad that I did. Investing in yourself is important, even though it might feel scary… If there’s something that’s making you think you want to come, listen to that voice because I’m definitely glad that I did.”

Actor, Mom, San Diego Self-Love Retreat Sister

Leslie-Anne

If someone is thinking about joining the retreat, I would tell them to take the leap of faith.

After healing my body, mind, and spirit, I started traveling to breathtaking places to host my worldwide women’s self-love retreats (San Diego, California; Bali, Indonesia; Sedona, Arizona; Costa Rica, you name it!) so that you too can cultivate true self-love and create the life you’ve always dreamed of. I love sharing my heart with you through my writings, videos, and social media platforms - connect with me via @maryscupofteaa on Instagram! 

Today, I am the creator of Mary’s Cup of Tea, author of The Gift of Self-Love, inspirational speaker, podcaster and worldwide retreat leader. 

But it wasn’t so long ago that I was where you are. I had no confidence in myself, I hated my body and was caught in an endless cycle of shame and obsession with food and exercise. I had no idea what self-love was and the thought of loving myself scared the shit out of me.

welcome,

I’m your guiding force on this journey!

During the Costa Rica Self-Love Retreat, I’ll be hosting daily workshops for you and your retreat sisters on healing body-image struggles, building self-confidence, creating the life you’ve always dreamed of, and most importantly, loving yourself, deeply, fully, unconditionally. We’ll also go on adventures around Costa Rica together, connect deeply with one another and share a transformational experience of a lifetime.

MUCH love,

What is the refund policy?

If you choose to cancel your retreat attendance, then $900 is non-refundable under any circumstances. If the cancellation is made at least 60 days before the start of the retreat, then you may receive the difference between the amount you paid and $900. If cancellation is made less than 60 days before the start of the retreat, then we will retain the entire amount.

Please carefully review the retreat terms and conditions found here.

Let’s cover a few FAQ’s

Is traveling to Costa Rica safe?

Costa Rica is incredibly safe. We will also be staying a bit off the grid in a private retreat center in a beach-front town called Dominical. Our retreat center has a 24/7 staff and all the excursions we’re doing are suitable for all levels. You are in good hands!

How does the payment plan work?

We use a secure payment processor called Stripe that will reserve your spot and deduct the first payment once you press the ‘Register Now’ button. From there, the second payment will be automatically deducted 30 days after your first payment and the final payment will be deducted 30 days after that.

Note: your application fee is automatically applied to the total retreat cost upon registration.

If I have an eating disorder, can I come to the self-love retreat?

The retreat is not intended for anyone with an eating disorder or actively in recovery from an eating disorder. With that being said, your retreat sisters may have past struggles with food and body-image and thus, the retreat will hold sacred space for healing around those topics. All attendees must be emotionally aware of where they’re at in their journeys and be certain that they can maintain a safe, non-triggering space for others.

Apply for The Costa Rica Self-Love Retreat

Do I need a visa or vaccines to travel to Costa Rica?

Americans do not need a visa to travel to Costa Rica. However, you must have a valid passport and a return ticket from Costa Rica. This goes for Canadian passport holders and most European countries too. Please consult your government’s website to confirm the visa requirements.

Travelers should have all routine vaccinations. Please visit cdc.gov, or your local government's website, and consult your physician to see which vaccines you need. Given the pandemic, we highly encourage ALL retreat attendees to get the COVID-19 vaccine at least 3 weeks before traveling, too.
