Your Own Retreat


Your Own Retreat is based on a totally personal experience of meditation (or for couples or small groups), ideal for the development of much more precise objectives, in a deep, private and calm way.

With this program I invite you to join me in my daily routine here where I live, a place surrounded by nature and spaces to meditate.

In the program I share breathing meditation and ancient yoga techniques adapted to your own motivations, which can be emotional, or for stress relief, or simply experience the benefits of meditation to apply them in your usual routine.

Depending on the length of your stay, there are the following two programs:

"Walk as if you were kissing the ground with your feet. Be aware of your surroundings"
– Thich Nhat Hanh –


Minimum 2 days / 2 nights.

Practical sessions every day you stay here.  You'll have three daily sessions of 1 hr. each, with support and guidance available in each part of the process (we arrange the schedule of the sessions once you come)

You will also receive additional instructions to practice the exercises in the assigned space within your room. This will be key to making your retreat a highly introspective experience.

– Currently, reservations must be made 1 month in advance for retreats on weekends, and 2 weeks in advance for retreats on weekdays.

– The space is reserved via bank transfer, PayPal or SINPE-Costa Rican-mobile by paying the entire chosen fee. Tell me to send you the payment information only if you have already decided that you will come, please.

– Check-in / check-out time is 2:00PM.

– Participants must indicate their motivation to come, in order to adapt the practice to their personal goals.

– Dates are scheduled so that there are no more than two bubbles at the same time, thus guaranteeing personalised work.

– Modo Elefante closes at 9:00PM every day (flexible hours for long stays)

– People are free to go out at any moment and distributing their free time as they wish.

– The programs are only for people over 21 years old.

– Modo Elefante is a meditation center, not a therapy one. People suffering from depression, psychiatric/mental pathologies or addictions of any kind, please consider other options since the place lacks the human, medical and technological resources to treat such situations.

– We offer an infrastructure for people to spend moments of introspection. Part of the concept is to disconnect a bit from the usual routine, so we do not offer wifi, internet or television service.

– The meditative health proposal at Modo Elefante includes cold water baths; the rooms do not have hot water.

– Cancellation policy: people who cancel their stay will have the opportunity to make a replacement during the 10 calendar days after the original date.
