Explore the wild side of screenwriting in at the Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort in Nosara, Costa Rica where award-winning screenwriter Bill Boyle will guide a small group of screenwriters in a week-long immersion into the craft of screenwriting. You'll have lots of time to write in this idyllic place. Work on rewriting a screenplay (feature or TV pilot) or start a new one.

 

Award-winning screenwriter Bill Boyle has become one of the most popular script consultants in the industry. He will guide writers from screenplay concept to draft with daily screenwriting classes and one-on-one coaching. Classes will be tailored to students' writing abilities and needs. Evening chats with Bill about the business of screenwriting are always a highlight at our retreats.

 

ACCOMMODATIONS 

You're in for a treat! Your home for the week will be in an exquisite Balinese-furnished bungalow at the Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort, set amid the splendor and lush beauty of the Costa Rica jungle. You'll feel pampered in your modern accommodations, with all the conveniences you need. All rooms are double shared with shared bath. Please let us know if you'll be traveling with a partner or friend and want to room with that person. Otherwise, we'll match you with a same-gender roommate.

 

Meals are included and are served buffet style next to the pool in the open air pavilion with breathtaking jungle views. Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort strives to use natural, fresh ingredients to promote good health.

 

The Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort is set on over 8 acres of stunning grounds landscaped with flowers, large Guanacaste and Pochote trees, waterfalls and gentle streams that run throughout the property. The resort features a 25 meter salt water lap pool, juice bar, and spa, all with jungle and ocean views. The resort is designed to blend seamlessly into the natural landscape and inspire a feeling of home in harmony with nature. This idyllic environment is the perfect place for quiet contemplation, meditation and writing.

 

Wake with the howler monkeys, write beside gentle streams, and be serenaded by the symphony of the jungle. Wherever you wander through the grounds, the sounds of the waterfalls will follow you. Quaint sculptures and statues will surprise you at every turn. Follow gentle paths over stone bridges to your bungalow and be embraced by the calming, hand-placed rocks and waterfalls throughout the resort.

 

The pristine Playa Guiones Beach, world famous for surfing, is just a short walk down a jungle path. You can sit on the beach and write, enjoy spectacular sunsets and swim in the waves of the Pacific Ocean.

 

When you need a break from writing, you can take yoga classes, surfing lessons, get a massage or ask the resort to arrange any number of activities and tours* in the area, including horseback riding, stand up paddle board tours, waterfall hikes, ATV adventures, wildlife explorations such as visiting the ocean turtles at a nearby black sand beach, and bike riding (bikes available for rent), to name a few.

 

*Note: The retreat will include a tour (TBD).
