Learn the secrets to living long & living well

Sometimes life starts to feel way too predictable, perhaps even monotonous. Things are good, but not great. Maybe you’re wondering if there’s more to life than this? … like there’s more you want to experience but you just haven’t had the time to think about it.  Every once in a while, we all need to hit pause on the remote control of life and ask ourselves, “Am I living the kind of life that I really want?” So if you want to get that question answered, The Ikigai Retreat will help you re-analyze your life. It was designed to provide the necessary space and time needed to intentionally create your life, instead of living it by default. So join us for a unique blend of specifically curated experiences, wellbeing education, and body/soul nourishment. We’ve done all the leg work for you. All you need to do is book your flight.

Why Ikigai?

Ikigai is a Japanese word whose meaning translates roughly to a reason for being, encompassing joy, a sense of purpose and meaning and a feeling of well-being. The word derives from iki, meaning life and kai, meaning the realization of hopes and expectations. And this is exactly what the retreat is all about.

What are the secrets of the world’s blue zones? What does the research say about living a long and happy life? How do you find more purpose in your life? How can you use money to literally “buy happiness?” What do Costa Rica, Denmark, and Japan all have figured out? Why do people live long and healthy lives there? The answers are fascinating. Scroll down to find out what you’ll learn each day of the retreat.


In order to make this as easy as possible, we’ve made this experience ALL-inclusive. All you have to do is book your flight!


Transportation is arranged to bring you to and from the airport in a coach bus along the scenic roads through the lush country.


All 7 nights are included in your package. 6 of those nights will be in the beautiful villas at the Pranamar Eco-Resort.
