This week at Omega Costa Rica, you can sample from a variety of programs with Omega’s top teachers, choosing a new workshop each day to create your own experience. Explore relationship as a spiritual practice, integrate the power of purpose in your life, or tap into your unconscious to free the writer within. You can also rediscover your wholeness through spiritual inquiry, practice rejuvenating yoga or qigong, or practice living fully in the moment.

Explore workshops in the morning and afternoon, stroll the three-mile-long sandy beach, and then relax and enjoy the exciting evening activities offered at Blue Spirit. Or, you can leave the schedule behind and try an excursion.

Sample from any or all of the following workshops during Week 2.

Getting the Love You Want
Harville Hendrix, PhD, and Helen LaKelly Hunt, PhD
This workshop gives couples the concepts and tools they need to achieve safety, sustain deep connection, and experience joyful aliveness. Learning a new way to talk, removing negativity, and expressing caring behaviors transforms any relationship into an instrument of healing and spiritual growth. Based on Imago Relationship Therapy, this program has helped thousands of couples worldwide move from an unconscious to a conscious and thriving relationship. Couples new and old, in crisis or in love, married or unmarried, are invited to join this transformative workshop.

Unlock Your Purpose
Richard Leider
Are you ready to explore your real potential? To get a life, you need a purpose in life. Fundamental to health, healing, and happiness, having a purpose can give you the will to not just live, but to live long and well. Discover your primary drive and learn to integrate purpose into everything you do. Led by Richard Leider, coauthor of Repacking Your Bags and The Power of Purpose, you gain the tools you need to live your life with purpose. 

Relax & Write
Tapping Your Unconscious for Life & Art
Maia Danziger
Are you a new or established writer struggling to tap into your creative well? The Relax & Write method shows you that the blank page is nothing to fear. Created by Maia Danziger, the Relax & Write method unlocks the unconscious to develop your passion for writing and living. In a safe and nonjudgmental setting, you practice deep relaxation, guided meditation, sensory awareness, and tapping into the "observer self." This process teaches you to awaken the inner voice you’ve always wanted to hear and to put that voice to paper.

The Free Heart™
Annette Knopp
We all long for a life full of meaning, fulfillment, love, and connection, yet we might be confused on how to truly actualize that intention in our day-to-day reality. Through meditation, experiential inquiries, and shamanic medicine tools, Annette Knopp guides you to rely on your innermost being and awakened heart-intelligence to reveal and implement the necessary course directions in your life.

Yoga for Rejuvenation
Marianela Ortiz
In this rejuvenating week of hatha yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Gaia Yoga, and chanting, you transform old patterns stored in the body, recover your deepest inner wisdom, and rejuvenate your body, mind, and spirit. Learn to activate Kundalini energy through asanas and other dynamic movements. Use yogic sounds and sacred chants to elevate and accelerate cellular vibration, all while stimulating physical, mental, and emotional detoxification and renewal

The Path to Longevity
Create More Time for Life
Stephan Rechtschaffen, MD
Physician, author, and cofounder of Omega, Stephan Rechtschaffen, teaches integrative approaches to longevity, time, stress reduction, and well-being. Learn the fundamental basis to attain and maintain greater vitality and long life. Through inspiring lectures, guided visualizations, and meditation practices, the author of Timeshifting and coauthor of Vitality and Wellness, shows you how to lead a more balanced and integrative life while coming deeper into the present moment.

Cultivate Your Life Force
Waterfall Qigong Style

Steven Michael Pague
Delve into the mysteries of qigong through a blend of easy-to-learn, yet profound movements designed to increase vitality, strengthen immune function, enhance creativity, and achieve harmony and balance, and much more. Join in and kindle the fire of your inner smile, align yourself between heaven and earth and find the extraordinary in the ordinary. While enjoying practices of movement and stillness, we also learn about the history, philosophy, and healing principals of qigong. As streams gather to form a river or waterfall, Waterfall Qigong is a joining of several lineages and teaching styles. Garner and take home what you will need to develop, or add to, a practice of your own.
