“The week at Sugar Beach in Costa Rica was so fulfilling and amazing. The people in our group were insightful in a variety of ways: spiritual, physical and intuitively. We learned so much from each other. The week was filled with encouragement, support and love from our leaders and ourselves.

Costa Rica and its people are beautiful and soulful. We received so much care and inspiration from those we came into contact with. Sugar Beach is as perfect a resort as there is in the world. Beautiful beach, breezes, and wildlife…not to mention the food and service. My heart is full!”

“Susann holds a beautiful, loving space. Her playful nature allows for gentle transformation to unfold in each of us. The Costa Rica setting at Sugar Beach is spectacular and very beautiful. The beach is swimmable and we had lots of fun in the waves.

The staff at Sugar Beach Resort take care of the details of a trip which is so important. They are helpful and loving. The food that we received was delicious and plentiful. Dietary concerns were handled without hesitation. Thank You!”

“A table of light and love… a sense of community in a special place on earth. We were embraced, accepted and taken care of so we could improvise and be what we felt right in each moment. Susann has a unique ability that gives you back your sense of self in its fullest form. With the support and enticing company of Franco and Kay, this was a week that has created great shifts. The land, the people, the food and the wildlife, especially the white-faced monkeys! “
