Write wild. Jungle walks ending at the untamed ocean. The sounds of parrots, iguanas and howler monkeys. You, barefoot and writing, writing, writing…
Join us for our return to Peace Retreat in Playa Negra, Guanacaste, a short 20-min walk to the Pacific Ocean, for an immersive experience of discovery, creation, inspiration and building community. You will gain perspective, respite, focus, time, camaraderie and the gift of prioritizing yourself and your art.
This 7-day 6-night retreat will feature generative classes, workshops, craft talks, and one-on-one mentoring sessions as well as plenty of inspired individual writing time. All activities/classes are optional and participants can create a schedule that is supportive and nurturing to their process while finding just the right amount of motivation, guidance, and camaraderie.
Our fees are all-inclusive and provide you with:
- Double occupancy accommodations (limited upgrades to private spaces available on a first come basis) in a variety of choices, from the main house to the darling jungle cabinas!
- All instruction and classes with Kathy and Nancy
- Two 30-minute private mentoring sessions
- Transportation to and from Liberia Airport (some coordination required)
- Three lovingly prepared meals a day
- Bonus: Yoga every morning! (for an additional drop-in donation!)

Note: Peace Retreat is NOT a tourist resort or spa. It is a beautiful, inspiring, wild, and rustic retreat space. Nancy describes it best in her wrap-up of the 2019 retreat: “Eco-friendly Peace Retreat is the perfect blend of authentic Costa Rica with just enough creature comforts to make it relaxing without sacrificing the true experience for the sanitized resort version. Simple, loving, comfortable, perfect.”
