Kind words from our Retreat Leader Community

" When I began to search for the perfect location for a Goddess Retreat in Costa Rica, I kept coming up just short... until I connected with HappE and Successful Retreats! HappE not only answered all of the logical questions I had, she went above and beyond in what Successful Retreats would be able to offer me as a retreat leader, from marketing support to on-location support, and everything in between. Her energy was exactly what I needed: enthusiastic, bright, all while grounded and nurturing! She helped me determine which activities were going to be best suited for my group and coordinated all of the local logistics with clear and timely communication. Even when we had a couple attendees with flight delays, HappE and her team kept me calm and coordinated everything so that we retreat could continue to run as smoothly as possible and helped all of our attendees have a wonderful experience. I truly can't imagine hosting a retreat in Costa Rica with anyone else!!"
- Marie Kueny from Goddess of Light
"HappE was an absolute dream to work with! From start to finish, everything was very organized and she was so supportive. Of course as a retreat leader, we go through stressful times, and she worked with me to the best of her ability to ensure the process was as stress-free as possible. I cannot say enough great things! She suggested the perfect sound healer and masseuses and basically handled everything for me, which made my job a lot easier! When I met her in person, I cried because I was so happy and appreciative of all of the support she gave me throughout it all. I would highly suggest working with Successful Retreats, they will not let you down!”
- Alexis Amato from VIBE
Working with HappE and her team was a dream come true. Before the retreat, communication was easy and I never felt like my inquiries and questions were inconvenient. Once we arrived at Synergy, everyone was personable and professional and so well suited for their particular role. I felt that my group participants were in great hands from the moment they arrived. The food was amazing and filled with love. Our chef went above and beyond to not only make amazing plant-based meals, but to also align them with our elemental themes for the day which made meals even more exciting. The excursions were seamlessly woven into the flow of each day and the retreat team arranged our transportation and communicated with the drivers so we stayed on track and cared for. Overall, I felt like my dream of leading a retreat in Costa Rica was not only realized but elevated. Thank you so much! ”
- Hannah Levin from Heartfelt Wellbeing
I could not have done this without HappE's support. From the very beginning when trying to figure out what we wanted and needed a retreat and location. Providing location options and helping us find the most perfect place was so important. I had no idea what I was doing or what to expect and everything exceeded our expectations. I can't imagine trying to do this on my own. Knowing we had local contact support and guide us was vital to our success. Thank you for connecting us with Community Carbon Trees and Tree Jenny!
- Gina Galli from Better Bones
"The team from Successful Retreats lived up to their name and beyond! We felt so supported by their communication, collaboration and care. They truly accompanied us every step of the way and showed us incredible patience and kindness on the journey toward realizing our vision. Once we arrived, our guests were given impeccable service and an experience they are still talking about to this day. Would highly recommend Successful Retreats to other teachers and retreat producers!"
- Ben Caron from Ben Caron Creates
“I recently hosted a retreat with Upward Spirals and I was blown away with the love, support, teamwork and ease of the entire process. My whole team felt 100% supported. I’m so happy to work with a team who has integrity in everything they do; from the local organic food they source, to their relationships w/the farmers and the community at large. Every detail was perfect. Thank you U.S. team for helping our retreat go so smoothly! Everyone had a blast! Eternally grateful!”
- Rita Jean
"Working with Successful retreats made planning our Costa Rica Retreat a very pleasant experience. HappE is extremely knowledgeable and was able to coordinate everything from airport transfers to sourcing local products for us to use once we were at the centre. She was able to take care of all the minor details so my co-facilitator and I could focus on our guests. Once we arrived at the retreat Center it was amazing to have an on-site helper with us the entire week along with the chef and support staff. They were able to accommodate our guests needs, allergies and preferences. We loved the centre and experience so much that we are coming back for a second time this fall. Thank you HappE and everyone else who made our retreat a reality. xoxo"
