Do you feel stuck? Need time to get away?
Space to take steps to improve your confidence, happiness and finally lead the life you desire?
In the past 8 years alone I’ve helped almost 7000 people find happiness through mindful meditation, ‘thought management’ and taking positive action, on my 5 to 12 week courses, over a 1000 of those being teens and adults in schools and businesses. In addition, I’ve worked 1:1 with clients to help them make transformational changes to their lives.
But for some, an 8 week MBCT course, or a significant investment in 1:1 coaching isn’t feasible timewise or financially.
So, if you want to learn to love yourself, live in the present moment non-judgmentally, and lead the life you desire, a 3 to 7 day retreat could be just what you need to boost your journey. These retreats in amazing locations are designed to help you take brave but manageable steps in order to turn your dreams into reality. You can escape your busy daily life, and immerse yourself in order to gain calmness and clarity. One retreat participant said:
“It has ignited a light in me, a desire to change and grow my positive pathways”
While staying at these carefully chosen, wonderful, seaside locations, you will experience stress reduction and life transformation via learning to love yourself, live in the moment and lead the life you desire. Over the 3 or 5 days you will take part in workshops and guided meditations to develop greater self-compassion, awareness and presence, and drive to pursue your dreams. Each of the retreat touches on the three areas – Love, Live, Lead – but focuses on one area more than the others, according to where you are and what you want to develop.
Mindful Montezuma, Costa Rica Pura Vida Retreat
21st – 28th October 2023
Montezuma is a boho village on the Nicoya Peninsula, just a few hours drive from San Jose or Liberia, where the jungle touches beautiful Pacific beaches. You are never far from the warm ocean nor the sound of Howler Monkeys.
The owners of Aves Hotel and Resort – Mike and Jennifer – have created a luxury Bali-inspired oasis of tranquility, perfect to learn or practice Mindfulness, in order to remember that ‘it’s the simple things in life that are extraordinary’.
During the 6 days/7 nights, you are invited to (re)discover how to ‘pay attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally’ so that you can (re)learn how to Love Yourself, Live in the Moment and Lead the Life you Desire, or as Costa Ricans call it, lead a Pura Vida.
This special retreat offer includes 7 nights luxury accommodation in the middle of the tropical forest with:
- Delicious poolside breakfast & lunch or dinner included every day
- 6 sessions of yoga at the stunning Shala with uninterrupted views of the forest canopy all the way to the ocean

If we constantly sweat the small stuff and incessantly rush around without taking time to relax, we will not only be stressed, but also miss the best moments of our lives. These 6 days of yoga, workshops, meditations and nature will remind you of your values and help you re-align with what sets your heart on fire.

Casa Fuzetta is an exceptional venue in the town of Olhao in the Algarve – one of the few areas in Europe to enjoy 300 days of sunshine per year! The owners – Jonathan and Tara – have created a sanctuary perfect for our retreat; a place to reconnect with a slower, seasonal way of life, and with a genuine community of creative, like-minded souls, while you re-affirm your self-worth, expand your presence and revive your life dreams.
During the 4 days you are invited to share and contribute to this ‘everyday magic’, while enjoying the journey of your Love Live Lead retreat at this high-end, yet relaxed, private and intimate location, which offers you style and comfort just fifteen minutes from Faro airport.
Without self-compassion there is self-judgment and striving to be ‘someone else’, which blocks us from achieving our dreams.

Mindful Zanzibar – Love Live Lead Retreat
Following the success of the first Mindful Zanzibar retreat in 2017, we are pleased to make this the icing on the cake of the Love, Live, Lead retreats. The HODI HODI Beach Houses, on the beach in Kilima Juu village, near Matemwe, on the Northeastern side of the Tanzanian island, are a unique and perfect venue for you to embrace leading the life you desire.
During this 5 day retreat you can let the warm Indian Ocean breeze be the wind beneath your wings, as you treat your mind and body to a truly magical event, while staying at this stunning seafront location, steps from the ocean. 5 days of mindfulness-based workshops will help you embrace the seven pillars of happiness, in order to cement the foundations for you to lead the life you desire, namely: non-judgment, non-striving, patience, curiosity, acceptance, trust and letting go. These mindsets, along with gratitude and compassion, will ensure you can love yourself, live in the moment and have the tools you need to lead the life you desire.
The owner, Julia Bishop, a powerhouse of vision, stamina and community spirit, has a contagious energy and a philosophy of responsible tourism, providing an authentic and sustainable experience … as well as some amazing stories of her hotel-building adventures. In line with Julia’s huge community efforts, the retreat raises resources for the small village primary school, which also welcomes learning gifts from guests.
Without exploring and listening to our (not others’) values, needs and goals, we can feel lost in this chaotic world. We can forget that our only duty to is to follow our heart and be kind to others on the way. These 5 days will help you have a clear picture of what you want to do, where and with whom … knowing that the only ‘why’ is because that is
THE LIFE YOU WANT TO lead.

“Anna is confident, warm and full of energy. She emits a positivity and I feel like anything is possible when I talk to her. She is non-judgmental and accepting of other people’s personalities.”
“It’s been really important to take time out for myself and to think about my values, needs, strengths and to reflect on my satisfaction points without the distractions of life at home. It was also useful to learn how other people feel and think. I have gained a lot from the retreat and feel happier and more willing to be flexible, embrace uncertainty and not be so judgmental”
“Anna was fantastic, a very understanding host and the retreat was amazing, all in all an unforgettable experience, which I hope to repeat in the near future. I thank Anna for all her help and support.”
