The Shine Retreat Costa Rica

An intimate retreat for women, The Shine Retreat Costa Rica is a magical, transformational experience that will leave you rejuvenated, inspired and with a deeper experience of freedom, connection, expansion and clarity.

June 21-25, 2023


The Shine Retreat Costa Rica is an intimate, deeply transformational, experiential retreat to re-connect with your soul, the wonder of nature, the fulfillment of community and the inspiration of being part of something bigger than ourselves.  

Bring your whole life in and come out with a deeper experience of connection, peace, joy, gratitude and velocity in the areas of life that matter most to you.

Through nature, cultivating stillness, meditation, community, inquiry, creative expression, spiritual guidance, yoga and nourishing meals infused with love, you'll have the opportunity to transform limiting perceptions and social pressures, strengthen your powerful intuition, see the perfection of your life, trust the unfolding and tap into a new, unforeseen and limitless future.

The Shine Retreat Costa Rica is for those designing a life of true freedom, aliveness, expansion and contribution.

"The Shine Costa Rica retreat was hands down, the best retreat I’ve ever experienced in my life. So what made it so great? Jaime’s gentle guidance along with an abundance of peace, space, beauty, connection to nature and the sisterhood were all I needed for a total reset. I arrived distressed and hopeless. I left feeling powerful with the ability to create newness in my business and personal life. And when I got home, before my bags were even unpacked, I signed up for 2023. I plan to use this retreat as a reset every year going forward, so I hope to see you there! "

"I absolutely loved the Shine retreat I attended!! The environment was so supportive of the work I was there to do. The generosity and grace of the leadership and support and the camaraderie of the participants created exactly what I needed to grow. I'm still feeling the effects of being there. I notice a shift in the way I see myself and the way I see the world. I feel more peaceful and more grounded and solid. I'm getting more clarity about my vision and what is calling to me. I'm full of gratitude!"

More About Jaime & Laurie

Jaime Myers:

My greatest joy is engaging in experiences and inquiry that free the spirit and give new life to the soul.  My passion and art form is creating inspiring spaces that bring together essential ingredients for magic and deep transformation. 

At age 21 I was introduced to the world of personal growth and transformation and over the past 28 years I've had the absolute privilege of being a staff member, coach, leadership trainer, workshop leader and program designer for organizations committed to a better world.

With a vision of people being empowered to honor themselves, discover and align with their personal truth and lead joyful, soul-fueled lives, I founded Shine Life Design, LLC and offer retreats, coaching and online programs.  

Having led over 200 live weekend courses as well as working with thousands of people in various structures for personal growth, I've gained a tremendous love and understanding for what it is to be human and the shifts in perspective that set us free!  

I live in the mountains of Utah with my husband, Seth, and our two teenage sons who've provided my greatest transformational opportunity yet. 

"My favorite part of the retreat was um, ALL of it. Our dear gentle leader, Jaime, wove each session together in a way that wasn't preachy, just perfect. I highly recommend this retreat! Just do it! "


Laurie Eastwoord

Igniting Play and Creative Expression through Art

I am a champion for creativity on every level. I founded Mining the Magic with the strong belief that we, as human beings, are wired to create. I am intrigued by the creative spirit within each of us, that unfettered joy of making something…anything. 

Embracing our creativity challenges us, puts us in a place of the unknown, expands our understanding, opens our hearts, asks us to be courageous and to trust in the process. Every piece of creative endeavor is a new beginning, a new possibility. 

I began my art journey by creating black and white photos that I hand tinted, printed, framed and sold in the wholesale market, including Restoration Hardware and Eddie Bauer Homestore. It became a very successful business which I loved until I didn’t. It became familiar and known, the opposite of what creativity offers, the magic in the unknown! After 12 years, I left the business and began my search to understand and embrace the creative process. 

During the creative sessions, I encourage trusting the process and embracing mystery over mastery.  Like a metaphor for life; we practice playing and engaging with the art from a place of curiosity, courage and compassion.
