Are you longing to BE your authentic self and feel all of this on a cellular level?

Join us in the land of Pura Vida for the Resounding Woman Retreat, Costa Rica.

It's an awakening.
It's a reclamation of self.
It's a home-coming. 

It's more than a retreat.

It's a transformational experience that will remind you who you really are.



“Working with Elise has been transformative in more ways than I ever imagined. She has helped me understand and access the ancient wisdom that exists within my own body, allowing me to move through my days more ease-fully and navigate challenging relationships and conversations with compassion and calm. If you're stuck in "fight, flight, or freeze" and you're ready for a more serene and sustainable approach to life, then I highly recommend Elise as your gentle, insightful, and compassionate guide.”

Emily Reiner ~ Health Coach and Entrepreneur 

Ready for an inspirational reset, a place to explore more than
"busy-ness" as usual. 

this retreat is for the ambitious and motivated
woman who is ...

You're made of magic, Dear Woman, and you're ready to feel aliveness in your body once again.

You're ready to pause and hear your thoughts for once ~ to stop the cycles of over-giving, people pleasing and neglecting your own needs. You're ready to express your WHOLE truth.

You're ready to be seen and heard, to let your aura glow beyond your edges, past that which tries to hold you back.

You're ready for some deeply restorative, healing time in paradise
with ~ YOU. 

This retreat will change everything...

How you see yourself.

How you treat yourself.

How you speak to yourself.

Be held in deep connection in a sacred circle of sisterhood through adventure, soulful healing circles and life-changing conversations.

Soulful spiritual inquiry. Life changing and affirming ceremonies, all held in a trauma informed space. 

Feel supported unlike anything you've ever experienced before in extraordinary coaching circles with a master Voice Activation and Visibility Coach

Speak your truth. What makes your heart sing? What are you ready to step away from? What truths are you ready to share with the world?

YIELD into deep rest, so your body can rejuvenate and heal. 

Deeply honour  a fearless exploration of self, so you can remember WHO YOU ARE on a cellular level.

Tap into the wisdom of your body, so you can come out of survival mode and BE in whole-ness and move past just going through the motions

it's time to RECLAIM yourself...

"After The Resounding Woman Retreat, my creativity came back online! Now, with a regulated nervous system, anything feels possible!"

I received the kind of love, support and tools I can bring home with me and really, anywhere I am. I have a sense of peace in my mind, heart and body in a way I haven't felt before. IT FEELS LASTING!"

~ Tamara Freeman, Transformational Life Coach, Sound Healer and
Singer Songwriter

Deeply supportive and healing ...

Our daily schedule is grounded, spacious and mindful of one thing, first and foremost... your nervous system. We will allow time and space for everything to unfold exactly how it should be.

This is a deep invitation to a type of self connection that will help you see the parts of you that have been begging for attention.

We'll commune in Synergy's spacious yet cozy common area for delicious hand-made-with-love meals and snacks.

We'll have connection and coaching circles in the open air yoga loft or in one of the many comfy nooks around the retreat property.

We'll have a delicious sound healing journey while floating in the pool. Yes. I said while-floating-in-the-pool. 

We'll frolic at the ocean beach, paint our bodies with healing clay on the river's edge and sip healing, heart opening cacao.

While your RW experience will sometimes feel otherworldly, it will also leave you feeling alive, embodying a sense of peace, and like you can move forward from moments of stress with a spaciousness inside of you.

  • somatic (body based) ceremonies, to help you feel safe in your body.
  • soulful self-inquiry coaching circles (always trauma informed).
  • joyful movement (think belly dance class!) so you can break up the stuck-ness and OWN your truth.
  • voice and expression workshops to help you be the well-boundaried-woman that is your birthright. 

Soul affirming retreat programming ...

Be held in a loving cocoon of change and leave behind the identities that diminish your enough-ness.

Emerge on the other side more deeply connected to what makes you feel alive.

The Itinerary...

This is the day we arrive at the beautiful Synergy Retreat Centre in Uvita. We will have ground transportation arranged from a meeting point in San Jose at 11:00am. Once everyone has arrived and settled in, we will share a delicious supper and have an informal intro circle before a luxe slumber in your cozy bed, for the week.

This is the reclamation! Workshops, body based practices, sacred ceremonies and healing journeys all centred around this year's theme: "I AM ENOUGH". There will be plenty of play, rest, and soulful connection sprinkled into retreat week. Think: beach play, cultural visits, and adventure in the land of Pura Vida! 

It's not "goodbye", it's "be seeing you". Today, you will pack up your new found confidence, healed parts and knowledge and start the journey home (or on to more travel!) To make your exit from Resounding Woman Land as painless as possible, we will have pre-arranged transportation back to the airport. Check out time is 11:00am.

What if I don't want to do the extra activities?


Elise and team are trauma informed and sure to be inclusive in all activities and options. Elise's work is about finding a sense belonging without fitting in.

It's time to reclaim yourself.

"My friend encouraged me to join the most recent Resounding Woman Retreat, and even though I didn't know what it was about, I felt very welcome. 

I was able to workshop my current challenges and learn how to protect myself and believe in myself down my road ahead".

~ Kathryn Anne 2024 Attendee

~ Robyn 2024 Attendee

I feel grateful to have been a part of this experience."

~ Jenna 2024 Attendee
