About This Event


Transformation takes time and commitment. I offer a unique opportunity for you to step out of your world and join me here at our beautiful retreat centre in the mountain of Chirripo in Costa Rica. 

Giving you the opportunity to unwind and drop into the harmony of the land and then delve deep into you. In this supported environment you will feel the layers peel away as you clear away emotional blockages and stagnated energy. With five hours a day of personal one to one coaching your transformational process will take on a quantum leap. There will be plenty of time to absorb and integrate your learning as well as enjoying the land and stunning views, epic waterfall and join in with a wonderful array of local events and attraction.

We are nestled amongst mountain rivers, waterfalls and flowing natural abundance.

I am offering 3 - 5 day coaching residency packages. Please feel free to contact me if you have other requirements. There are many accommodation options please see the Finca Mia website. 

Arrangements  can also be made for larger groups, please contact me to discus  your needs.

"My stay with Vanessa has been really life-changing for me. I felt so comfortable to explore and understand my voice. Vanessa is gifted, with a wholesome knowledge. She guided me with the flow of me voice giving me skills and techniques that will last my lifetime. She has helped me find my confidence and after just two sessions I will continue to sing which I never thought I would of been capable to do. All down to her incredible support. Her space is magical - In the depths of the Costa Rican jungle (although a pretty easy route there from San José) you are surrounded by pure nature. A perfect place to chill and relax but also with an vast amount of things to do. I was fortunate to experience the Tinamaste Feria; where the community come together to sell what they grow, create and love. Plus yoga classes too. I would recommend coming to stay with Vanessa if you’ve ever wanted to explore your voice and need help to let go of fear that surrounds it.  She offers a unique way to spread the joy of singing and you will see results." HANNAH NEVILLE BRISTOL UK -Voice Yoga Residencial

Sometimes the Costa Rican roads are a little out of
touch with what your map might say, follow our directions to find us

From San Isidro (known locally as Pereze Zeledon) take road 242 up to Rivas.
Keep following it through the small town of Rivas and at the end of the main town take a right turn to continue on the 242.
Follow the road up the mountain going past the villages of Guadalupe, Chimirol and finally Canaán.
Once in Canaán you will see a chocolate shop Samaritan Xocalata and by all means stop and buy some delicious organic chocolate. After the chocolate shop take the next right turning over a small bridge and onto a dirt road, there is also a sign labeled to Los Angeles here.
Follow this road round and over the bridge and you will arrive at a fork in the road, stick to the left and keep driving up.
You're going the right way if you pass another bridge over the river, a small blue fortress on the right and the Los Angeles soccer field on the right.
About 50 meters after the soccer field there will be a stone wall on the right. Keep driving up past the end of the stone wall and past a black and white gate with hearts and on the right again about another 20 meters you will see a black gate with dried palm leaves weaved in, this is the entrance to Finca Mia. You made it! Welcome!

      Earth Angel <3 Find your voice with Vanessa!

    I had the pleasure of sitting with Vanessa in 2017 for a Kambo Ceremony in Panama. Her energy was so calm and grounding. She allowed us plenty of space to have our own journey while making us feel safe and supported. She knew the exact amount we all needed for the healing journey we were seeking. Her musical medicine songs were really the best part of sitting with her. Her use of voice, and empowerment teachings to help others find their voice are such powerful healing tools. She taught me the most powerful sounds for healing are often not the prettiest sounding, and sparked a curiosity in me to explore different parts of my voice. I can't wait to see when our paths will cross next, and what medicine she now has to share as an ever evolving Light Worker.
