Costa Rica Self-Love Retreat

The Costa Rica Self Love Retreat

January 3-7, 2021 is for you if…

You’re DONE struggling with body-image.

You want to learn how to love yourself unconditionally. 

You yearn to bond with like-minded women on the same journey.

First, watch this video:

Video was taken at the Bali Women’s Self-Love Retreat in June 2019.

Imagine This…

 You wake up in the morning to the sound of lush Costa Rican jungle to the sounds of birds chirping and water falling from our waterfall.

You come outside to have a nourishing breakfast with your retreat sisters, a community of like-minded women who are also on a self-love journey.

You meet Mary in our sacred space for a transformational self-love workshops, focusing on healing body-image struggles and building self-confidence.

You have a delicious, plant-based lunch made by a world-renowned chef while R&Ring by the pool with your new close friends.

We explore the gems of Costa Rica- waterfalls, jungles, beaches- all with a group of women who love, value, and cherish you.

 We have a moonlit beach dinner (and dessert!) while sharing stories and laughs with our retreat sisters.

 We come together in a sacred bonding space where we share stories, have deep belly laughs, and connect with one another.

 We go for a relaxing night swim in the private pool before parting for beauty sleep.

The Costa Rica Self-Love Retreat Intention:

 

The intention behind the Costa Rica Self Love Retreat is that you see the power of community and connection when cultivating self-love and creating confidence in your life.

And what better way to do that than to form a sisterhood in a sacred, welcoming, and accepting environment…  

You’ll wake up in the lush Costa Rican jungle to the sounds of birds chirping and water falling from our waterfall. Then, you’ll spend the mornings doing workshops with Mary on healing body-image struggles, building confidence and transforming your self-worth.

In the afternoons, you’ll explore the gems of Costa Rica- waterfalls, jungles, beaches- all with a group of women who love, value, and cherish you.

You’ll have the option to pamper yourself with a spa treatment by the best masseuses in the country or go on a zip-lining adventure with the most reputable zip-lining company in the world.

Lastly, the evenings will be in a sacred sharing circle with your fellow retreat sisters where we will talk, bond, laugh, cry, connect, and love.

Join me, sister, on the Costa Rica Self Love Retreat, a magical 5-day journey where you will fall in love with yourself…over and over and over again.

What past self-love retreat sisters are saying…

“I was struggling with my body image and doing things for other people before consulting with my own needs. As a result, I was bumbling around with no explicit purpose and feeling overwhelmed with my daily life. Mary’s workshops helped me realize what I really wanted and needed because it accessed my subconscious needs.

I learned that this problem I have with poor body image is highly influenced by the extent to which I allow it to be a problem. It is a thought process I depend on when I feel out of control and unable to pinpoint something I don’t like about my life. 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.”

~Maria; 22, Master’s Psychology student, Sedona Self-Love Retreat Sister

“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.”

~Sharon; 55, mom, Physical Therapist, Sedona Self-Love Retreat Sister

“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!”

~Justina; 21, Business student, Sedona Self-Love Retreat Sister

“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.”

~Alice;  29, mom, Nurse Practitioner, Sedona Self-Love Retreat Sister

Retreat FAQs

If you choose the 3-part payment plan, the first deposit that reserves your spot is non-refundable. The other 2 payments are refundable as long as Mary is notified of the cancellation via email at least 60 days before the start of the retreat.

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 about a 3-hour drive away from the center of San Jose. Imiloa 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.

 

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

 

Americans do not need neither visa to travel to Costa Rica. However, you must have a valid passport and a return ticket from Costa Rica. The goes for Canadian passport holders and most European countries. If you are traveling from elsewhere, please consult your government’s website to confirm the visa requirements.

The CDC requires all travelers to have measles and routine vaccinations. They also recommend Hepatitis A and Typhoid vaccines although those are not required. Please visit cdc.gov and consult your physician to see if/ which vaccines you need.  

 

Hi, I’m Mary

I’m your guiding force on this journey.

I’m a former bikini fitness model turned self-love advocate, TEDx speaker, and women’s self-love retreat host. It’s my mission to help you be confident in your body and love yourself unconditionally!

My story about recovering from an eating disorder, competing in bikini fitness competitions, and learning to love myself in a world telling me not to has been featured in magazines like TeenVogue, Self Magazine, Health Magazine, and Honey9.

After healing my body, mind, and spirit, I started traveling to beautiful, exotic places to host my worldwide women’s self-love retreats (Zanzibar, Tanzania; 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! 

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.
