Who We Are

We’re a group of healers helping each other discover the self-control, contentment and peace that can be obtained by connecting your mind, body and heart.


Casa Cerro Verde was built by our father as a vacation home that ultimately became his permanent residence in 1997. The location was chosen for its breathtaking panoramic views; close proximity to San José and major attractions including volcanoes, waterfalls and coffee plantations; and a desire to co-exist with la verdadera Costa Rica (the real Costa Rica).

Friends and family have spent many days enjoying all the magic that is la verdadera Costa Rica while visiting Cerro Verde. Over the years, we’ve often contemplated allowing others to share this special place as a retreat location. Now that intention is our reality and we want to share it with you.

What We Do 

We often develop facades, the faces we show the world, as a coping mechanism in order to survive. These facades are complex and deeply embedded into our way of being. Identifying and unraveling elements that lead to the creation of these facades allows for the discovery of one's true self.

The discovery of your true self is one of the most challenging, yet paramount and meaningful transformations that can occur during your life journey. Doing so with a trusted guide can lead to an emotional freedom from fear and pain; granting relief from the past and confidence in the present and future.

Our process goes beyond just discovery. At Cerro Verde, we believe in the inherent value of connection. True kinship with the world around us is established through three key points of connection. These points of connection include:  

  • Connection with oneself. Creating an honest relationship with yourself, examining your strengths and weaknesses and lovingly accepting all that you are.

  • Connection with others. Being truly authentic and vulnerable with another person. This connection withstands the human condition. You accept and appreciate someone exactly as they are, and they do the same for you.

  • Connection with something outside of ourselves. When we are aware of the grandeur, infinite wonder and implications of a connection on this universal level, we’re left with a sense of gratitude and humility that inspires happier and healthier decision making.

We dedicate our retreats to helping you create these three connections through our healing expertise and compassion.
