Embody your power.  Know your own 

value, beauty and worthiness, without question. 


…you touch down in Costa Rica. The moist air brushes your skin and you tingle with anticipation.

Meet the other women, and laugh! You are giddy to be together in person!  Look into their eyes, touch their shoulders and smile. 

How lucky you feel to be here, away from it all in this community of unfailingly kind and amazing women.  

Dive deeper in the work with Elena and the others.  Learn about yourself as you listen to their stories and share your own.     

Linger over luscious meals and conversation in the elevated dining hall.  

Feel deeply grateful you took this time for yourself.

Surrender your mind, muscles and senses to a divine spa experience.   Let the expert practitioners at Pura Vida guide you to a new terrain.    

Relish breakthroughs and new insights as your write in your journal or swing in a hammock.   

Walk the grounds chatting with another woman.  Gaze at the stars or laugh by the fire pit.   

The work you do here liberates you to take bold, powerful action, out there.  

Our playground is the beautiful Pura Vida Resort and Spa. 

Spanning eight acres high above sea level, this personal development haven provides the ideal backdrop for us to dive into themes of self-worth, money, compassion & trust.  So you emerge reconnected, centered and ready to expand. 

Enjoy daily yoga classes.  Participate in the group excursion – a waterfall hike! 

Or stay back at the spa, indulge in a sound bath or rain forest massage.  The choice is yours.  

Pura Vida provides the nurturing environment for your inner exploration, release and transformation.  

You are thriving in this WILL community.  

Embody Your Power provides intimate group work + spaciousness so you can relax, integrate, and go further!

Return home energized, transformed and ready to fulfill your vision.

If you long to…

  • Stop letting what other people “might think”  
  • Pledge a deeper commitment to your dreams
  • Shed fear, doubts and limiting beliefs

So you can…

  • Solidify relationships with WILL members who have your back and hold you lovingly accountable
  • Expand what you think is possible and
  • Play a bigger game

The Kripalu 2019 WILL retreat was a nexus of WILL in general. 

To have this group of women who all are seeking and reaching and inspiring, and still struggling and supporting each other, it’s next level.

Driving home, I was flying. Not speeding but floating. I felt so good. I felt, How lucky am I to have experienced that, and to be able to bring this back into my life?!?

I would recommend Elena to every woman lawyer who is open to it, to any woman in the world who would want to be part of this.

    The 2019 WILL Retreat gave me space to reflect on how I view myself.

    I looked back at my journey into law, how I got there, why it didn’t serve me.

    I came away with a sense of joyfulness that I’ve pushed down for so long in my legal career….

    I left with joy and wonder and spaciousness, with all of that, and it was pretty fabulous.

    Magic, free, filled, calming. I released things. I cried, I shared, I heard, I held. Excited, brimming over.

    I got a piece of myself back that had always been there and had been beaten up on a lot in this job.

    I am smiling at people, and being more kind to myself and others.

    I felt welcomed and supported throughout and was able to open up and really dig into the work.

    I loved spending time with everybody and getting to know each person’s story.

    It was a good balance of challenging work and time to rest and restore.

    I feel better equipped to do the work I need to do for my future, and I feel more connected to my WILL sisters.

    I absolutely recommend a retreat with Elena. She put together a carefully considered agenda with time for both work and play. I felt taken care of during the entire retreat.

    Why another retreat? Why Costa Rica?

    After the first WILL Retreat in May, 2019 I was blown away by the depth of the experience. 

    The love, support and transformation continue to nourish me and I believe, the other women who attended.   

    I heard you wanted more. 

    More time together in person, more spaciousness in the agenda, and an up-level retreat experience.  

    I chose an environment away from it all, in a space dedicated to personal development…  

    a haven where we play, cry and laugh, and

    …undergo a transformation to take us to the next level.

    My wife and I went to Costa Rica for our honeymoon and I loved the people, the pace and the “pura vida – pure life” greeting and lifestyle. 

    For years, I’ve been tempted by yoga retreats at Pura Vida.  Then, my retreat coach recommended it highly.    

    Pura Vida ticks ALL the boxes…

    …Away from it all but not hard to get to

    …Similar travel time from East and West coasts,

    …Personal development environment…

    …Yummy meals included, fun excursions and PRIVATE, en-suite single rooms, your upgrade is included! 

    Plus… a fire pit so we can hang out under the stars.  

    Put your dreams, desires and soul first.  Join us on the mountain top.

    Your retreat co-facilitator, Jenni Ingram, MSW and WILL Coach 

    I loved participating in the first WILL Retreat at Kripalu. It was an honor to support the women and Elena in that amazing gathering.   

    Since then, I’ve had the privilege of coaching some WILL individually and participating in the group calls and Master Mind.  I’m excited to support you during this retreat through a StrengthsFinder session, taking your picture and on a hike. Can’t wait to see you there! 

    I absolutely loved the WILL Retreat at Kripalu. It was helpful to let go of what was holding me back and to start the process of moving forward.

    Elena said at the retreat about how all motivation is either born out of love or fear.

    Now I find myself thinking about that with every decision I make. I see decisions I’ve made that got me into an unhappy place out of fear, and it’s time to go the other way and make decisions out of love.
