Leading with purpose is more challenging now than ever.
Our rapidly changing world adds stress and anxiety to our lives at every turn.
How will you respond to this moment?
Join our coaching community and leadership adventures (aka retreats), that challenges today’s modern leader to be the best version of themselves.
CLQ takes a holistic approach to mind, body and business. Leaders then discover the best in themselves and cultivate the best in others.
Our formula is simple but the multiplier effect of one leader’s impact will ripple through the world as they embody leadership as a way of being, and not a role.
Become the Conscious Leader that your team – your family – and the world – needs now.
A quest is a long or arduous search within the journey of a lifetime. Our ability to lead ourselves in a way that creates positive influence on others may well be our life’s work. The Conscious Leaders Quest is for those that want to be better tomorrow than they are today.
Is your leadership quest to find equanimity (mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation)?
Is it to understand how to use stress as a resource?
Could it be to master your inner leadership skills to create the space for those around you to achieve their full potential?
If we had you at equanimity, then apply here to see if you may be ready to join a purpose-driven group of 12 leaders on a 5 day quest to strengthen your impact as a human & leader.
Leadership is not a role – it’s a way of being! We cannot not have influence – the question is are we having positive or negative influence, appreciation or depreciation? We are all leaders, but you have to “awaken” to the true leader inside.
Your Quest will take place in the jungles and beaches of Nosara, Costa Rica.
This is a town where people come for enlightenment – there is a heart energy and healing quality that abounds. Nosara is home to yoga retreats, surfers, lovers of nature and a slower pace of life. All this creates a special community, and you will be supported along your journey by fellow travelers, the jungle, the beach and even the dusty roads.
Attendees will stay at the Costa Rican boutique beach hotel Olas Verdes which is a short walk from our retreat base at Casa Verano Eterno. Other excursions will take place throughout the Nosara community.

Melissa is a hospitality specialist who uses her innate understanding of personal needs, sense of duty and creativity to amplify opportunities and solve problems as a liaison for visitors to Costa Rica.
A true world ambassador at heart, Melissa moved to Costa Rica in 2005. She fell in love with the Costa Rican nature and lifestyle which gave her the right platform to dive deeper into her practices. She has traveled to India where she joined a Kundalini yoga training located in the foothills of the Himalayas. For Melissa this training was an experience of a lifetime. More than yoga the experience provided a deep connection within that allowed the inner voice of wisdom to come forth.

The April Nosara retreat includes 6 nights of luxury accommodations, concierge services, most meals, and airport transportation to and from Nosara. Cost does not include airfare. Please see The Quester Experience page to understand everything that is included within The Conscious Leadership Quest experience.
We will follow all CDC and Costa Rican guidelines for COVID. Masks are not required at this point, but we will follow local guidelines in case that changes. We will be mostly open air during the retreat. Anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID will be required to test and follow current guidelines.
While yoga and surfing abounds in Costa Rica, this is not a yoga or surf retreat. Both will play a role in understanding the neuroscience of energy & stress, and how we are all wired for reactivity. These methodologies are part of many practices that will be shared during CLQ Nosara allowing the creation of space to make better choices.
Once you commit to attending the April 2024 retreat in Nosara, we will send you a payment link to pay the balance or find a monthly payment option. Payment options cover all credit cards, and ACH bank drafts. We will allow you to make payments up until February 15th, 2024 when all seats need to be paid in full. If you need other options, just reach out to us.
