Self Health Care RETREAT
April 6 - 13, 2019
Mystica Hotel and Retreats,
LAKE ARENAL, Costa Rica.
Self-care is a full time job, yet many health care professionals are too busy navigating the needs of others, to attend to their own health. For one enriching week the tables will turn. Medical practitioners will retreat to the beautiful Pura Vida landscape of Costa Rica to experience first-hand the unique gift and opportunity of enhancing health through self-care. We hope you return home refreshed, carrying with you a new set of low-tech high-yield tools for health.
The retreat is designed to be experiential and educational, to empower each of us to be better examples and teachers of self-care. We will delve into the powerful and restorative practices of yoga, meditation, nutrition, and energy medicine, meeting each person where they are. We will explore eight fundamental and prevalent obstacles to optimal health today and learn how to turn each of them into opportunities for healing.
In order to be sustainable, modern medicine must embrace the wisdom of the past, acknowledge the profound complexity and individuality of the human body, and work with (not against) its innate
intelligence. We look forward to joining together with other health care professionals to share our collective wisdom and talents and to nourish and refresh our minds, bodies, and spirits in an incredible natural setting with tropical plants and the sounds of nature. Mystica www.mysticacostarica.com [create links] is nestled on the edge of the forest amongst rolling hills that overlook lake Arenal and its majestic Volcano.
