HAVE FUN! HEAL! TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE!
Imagine being in a nurturing paradise with this all-inclusive package deal:
*Private guided tours and eco-adventures-You will explore breathtaking waterfalls, play on beautiful beaches, tour awesome organic farms, including tasting wild fruits, flowers, plants, and other natural delights, bathe and drink from pristine springs, fly through the jungle down zip-lines, relax in cool caves, hike and observe wild monkeys, toucans, and other exotic creatures in the jungle terrain, as well as experience other cool eco-adventures.
*Health-empowering lectures and classes- You will leave the retreat inspired and motivated to take better care of your health after hearing Dr. SAM speak about: raw food nutrition, exercise and fitness, optimizing the healing response, injury prevention, anti-aging, breathing, meditation and vibrational health, and spiritual enlightenment. Dr. SAM will share his RAW-habilitationTM system of health and healing that has been used to help thousands of people transform their health. You will experience a fun and relaxed learning atmosphere. Health and healing concepts from his books and products will be adequately addressed. If you don’t already own some of these resources, you will be provided at least one free during the retreat.
*Private one-on-one therapeutic bodywork and/or exercise sessions- As a retreat participant, you will receive at least 1 hr of private ‘raw-habilitation time’ with Dr. SAM to meet your personal health and healing needs. Say goodbye to chronic aches and pains; and hello to a new vibrant body, mind, and spirit. Dr. SAM’s unique hands-on approach utilizes the body’s inherent wisdom to guide itself back into a balanced state of function. Customizing exercise to fit your body, mind, and spirit will be utilized in these private sessions as well.
*Focused group fitness sessions- You will join others in group exercise sessions that will be aimed at improving movement, restoring flexibility and posture, toning muscle (especially your glutes and abs), and fixing body imbalances that can help you prevent common injuries. These sessions will not only help you feel much better, they will also help to prepare you for some of the more challenging eco-adventures and other fun activities you may choose to participate in.
*Amazing raw and living foods- YES, we WILL eat, and we will eat well! Delicious and nutritious whole, natural, vegetarian raw and living foods will be served to you daily by our master chefs and kitchen staff. Your palate will be tantalized as you indulge in healthy meals that nourish every part of your being. You don’t have to be a 100% Raw Foodist to attend this event to be happy. Please let us know how we may fulfill your special dietary needs.
*Fun,laughter, and entertainment-Dancing, doing yoga, chanting and singing, creating music and art, watching movies, playing games, taking time to relax, reflect, and meditate, and sharing your thoughts and feelings as desired are just some of the fun ways that will help you and others enjoy their stay. Who knows? You might even learn how to fly!

Or, you can personally fill your spot by sending a replacement participant on your behalf.) If you cancel yet your spot is not filled, then you will lose your entire payment, unless you choose to apply this payment towards the following year’s retreat tuition.

Dr. SAM is certain this event will deliver an awesome and transformational health and healing experience! If you are not satisfied after Day 2 of the retreat, he has agreed to refund your money back! (Refunds include retreat expenses only. Travel fees will not be refunded.) For the record: To date, NO ONE has asked for their money back!
All activities are optional, but are included in the price of the retreat. Some activities may be physically strenuous. It is the responsibility of each participant to use good judgment as to which activities they can safely participate in. Neither “Farm of Life,” nor Dr. Samuel A. Mielcarski, is liable should you injure yourself while attending this retreat. You will need to sign a liability waiver prior to attending the retreat. The event hosts and facilitators are not responsible for any travel delays or inconveniences either. Please let us know if you have any type of allergies. Our rooms are not currently handicap accessible (we are working on it).
Travel / Getting to & from the Retreat
We recommend highly flying direct into San Jose Int’l airport in Costa Rica if possible to avoid any potential travel delays or problems.
*Important- Please Read!
The retreat dates as advertised have travel days included. (For example, the March 22nd-29th Retreat will have March 22nd and March 29th being travel days to and from the retreat). Once in San Jose, you will then need to travel to the retreat site by shuttle, bus, or rental car. We are approximately 3 hours from the San Jose airport.
Remember, your reservation will include FREE transportation to and from the airport to the retreat site (Finca de Vida), if you choose to use it. Once you arrive on Day 1 at the airport (March 22nd for this Retreat), the shuttle from the airport to the farm will leave by 2-3pm, so you will need to arrive at the airport by late morning or around 12 noon if possible on that day. We recommend that you arrive this early as it may take you an hour or longer to get through customs and the airport, but it can go quicker than that. You may also wish to arrive a day or more early (before March 22nd). If you choose to do this and need help in finding a place to stay in San Jose, we can help recommend a place to stay. If you do decide to come early, then you would still meet the rest of the group at the San Jose Int’l Airport (or other designated location that will be provided to you prior to the retreat) on March 22nd for your complimentary shuttle ride to the retreat location (Finca de Vida.)
When returning on March 29thth from the farm back to the airport, the shuttle will be leaving early morning and arriving back to the airport by 10am. To give yourself enough time, I would recommend booking return flights home from 1pm or later.
If NOT using the complimentary transportation that will be provided during the specific scheduled window of time we have arranged, YOU will be responsible (including expenses) for getting yourself to the retreat location. Options include: taxis, shuttles, buses, or rental cars. We would recommend taking a bus, shuttle, or taxi, as driving in Costa Rica can be difficult, especially getting out of San Jose. You will want to head to “San Isidro” (a.k.a. Perez Zeledon), or to “Playa Dominical.” Once, there we can arrange a pick-up for you.
What to Bring?
Once registered for a retreat, you will be sent an email with a detailed list of things to bring with you. If you don’t live in Costa Rica, you will need a passport. Please visit www.farmoflifecr.com for more traveler information and to view pictures of the retreat location.
