Occidental Papagayo, COSTA RICA



 The schedule below outlines the various activities and offerings that are included on this retreat. The sequence of these events will be created to support the flow and delivery of the offerings.

Most of you will arrive at Occidental Papagayo  on the first day of the retreat. You’ll have a chance to settle in, swim in the pool, play in the ocean and soak up the beauty of your environment before you indulge in a delectable dinner. Before dinner, we’ll have a general introduction to the retreat and an opportunity for participants to begin to get acquainted with each other.

Each morning you may choose to join a Meditation and Yoga session and/or you may take an early morning walk on the beach before having a delicious breakfast.


The sun-rises in this area are vibrant and as the ocean and land critters awaken you can feel the energy of life all around you.

Here is the general schedule for the entire week. You will have lots of time to learn amazing and practical information from Gregg that you can use to empower and enrich your life as well as ample time for exciting adventures, playful activities, sharing time with others and time to relax and absorb the beauty of this splendid tropical paradise.

The world around us is nothing more and nothing less than a mirror of what we have become from within. We are never more than a belief away from our greatest love, deepest healing, and most profound miracles. When we form heart-centered beliefs within our bodies, in the language of physics we’re creating the electrical and magnetic expression of them as waves of energy, which aren’t confined to our hearts or limited by the physical barrier of our skin and bones. So clearly we’re speaking to the world around us in each moment of every day through a language that has no words: the belief-waves of our hearts.

You can manifest the life you truly want with clear intention, emotional intelligence and imagination…like it or not, your life is what you have chosen.
