Who’s This NOT For?

»Those who are unwilling to admit that they’ve been pouring their time, money, and dreams into a land project that’s going nowhere

» Those who believe they don’t have the time or money to invest into saving themselves time & money

» Non-business-savvy business owners who are committed to perpetuating that perception of themselves

» Project organizers who are content with where they’re at, and aren’t interested in reaching more people and making more impact




Join us for this connected and engaging weekend, where you’ll develop strategic plans and relationships with other landowners ready to make a deep, lasting impact through their programs.

Wake up from the All-Too-Common “Build It And They Will Come” Fantasy
and its Accompanying Disappointments

During the precious time we have together, you’ll be able to set clear, strategic goals aimed at guiding your actions toward effective impact and financial regeneration. You can gain clarity and confidence in your offering, learn how best to get them in front of your ideal clients, and meet experts who’ll teach you how to save time, money, and the heartache of wasted effort in your next season of growth!

You may even discover how to bring revenue into your project independent of tourism cycles!

Enhance Your Impact Potential While Reducing the Ongoing Work To Provide It

In this weekend of education and discovery, learn how to attract more paying guests, improve relationships between members, guests, and your local workforce, and more. If the “build it and they will come” romance has faded for you, you might want to join us to explore what’s next.

We’ll even show you how to improve your guest’s experiences while reducing the demand on your time and attention!

The Regenerative Business Incubator isn’t going to leave you hanging!

This weekend intensive is only the beginning!

Bonus #1


9 Follow-Up Calls with your Incubator Cohort

We’ve designed this weekend to focus on several pivotal topics, interwoven with insight-inducing activities to take what’s learned and apply it directly to each individual’s project. However, we know that one weekend, alone, really isn’t enough to make the lasting change we’re aiming for.

To make sure you don’t walk away from this event with nothing more than a head full of information, we’ll be calling the collective back for 4 months of additional video calls, every other week, to further cultivate the sense of community that we’re creating at the event. We’ll go deeper into each of our projects and support each other in our continued growth.

Bonus #2


Invitation to our private member’s group

First, we’re pleased to announce that we aren’t meeting on Facebook.  We’re moving on.

Regeneravida.com is a new social media site that’s been built for the regenerative movements of Costa Rica to connect, free of industry-influenced algorithms. It’s impressively functional and free of the noise that comes with other, more popular sites.

We have a private group where we’ll share resources, ideas, questions, and support. It’s a place where you can post a question to a group of people who know you, build relationships, and carry on with conversation threads that are relevant to you. If you haven’t checked out RegeneraVida, yet, as soon as you register, make sure to drop in, create an account, and contribute to a more regenerative online society.

Bonus #3


Lifetime Access to recordings of the presentations

Throughout the Incubator process, we’ll be encouraging you to take notes and will be guiding you through a number of writing exercises to help anchor in and relate what you’re learning to your unique project’s needs.  At the same time, we understand the value of being able to revisit information once you’ve left the cohort bubble and you’re back on the land trying to remember that great idea that someone shared that you forgot to write down.  You might even want to review the presentations with other members of your project.

To support you in making the most out of your investment, we’ll be recording all of the presentations and will provide you with a link where you’ll be able to review them whenever and however many times you like.

Bonus #4
(This is available as an add-on for Live Stream Attendees)


4 Months Access to the Regeneration Nation
Mastermind for Landowners

Napoleon Hill used the word “Mastermind” to identify the group mind that’s formed when two or more individuals come together, in a state of harmony, for a common purpose.  The potentiality of the resulting mind is greater than the sum of its parts.

The Regenerative Business Incubator can be seen as a mastermind intensive. Still, there’s additional strength that can be tapped into over a prolonged period of time.

The Regeneration Nation Mastermind is soon to be launched, uniting landowners around Costa Rica, with the common purpose of growing better businesses and collaborating on cross-pollinating initiatives.  As an extension of ongoing education, we invite you to enjoy the Mastermind community for 4 months, as part of your admission to the Incubator program.

In this mastermind, you’ll have access to our twice a month 90-minute group calls, weekly emails illustrating a new tool or tactic you might find useful in refining your operating strategies, and a quarterly multi-day challenge, walking you through the implementation of some game-changing practices.

Bonus #5

(This is available as an add-on for Live Stream Attendees)



Join us for our upcoming “Community Living Agreements”
14-day Challange

At the Regenerative Business Incubator, we’ll spend an entire morning dedicated to the topic of communication, community, and creating healthy agreements as a tactic for establishing resilience. There are some aspects of that, however, that we just can’t get through in a few hours.  

In February, we kick off our first quarterly multi-day challenge for Mastermind members – and we’re hoping that’ll include YOU!  During this 2-week program, you’ll be taken step-by-step through the process of revolutionizing the way you communicate your project’s best space-sharing practices to your guests, students, and members.

Open your perspective

to unrealized potentials!

Uplevel your project’s

revenue streams!

Connect with other landowners

ready for the same!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register?

Simply scroll down to the bottom of this page and fill out the form.  There’s space for you to request private accommodations if you prefer.

After that, you’re in! We’ll be in touch by email to fill you in on everything you’ll need to prepare.

When and where will this event take place?

Cascade Elysiana is located in San Juan de Dios, near Platanillo de Barú, a short drive up the mountain from Dominical. We’ll send you detailed instructions once you register.

Orientation will start promptly at 5pm on Thursday, November 24th, 2022.
You can check in as early as 3pm.

We’ll have you ready to check out and head home, filled with renewed purpose & direction, by 3pm on Sunday, November 27th.

Is there parking or other transportation options to arrive onsite?

Cascade Elysiana is located approximately 4.5 km, or 10 minutes, down a dirt road from Platanillo de Barú. Parking is limited, so we’ll be providing shuttle service at 3pm and 4pm, from the bus stop located where the road cuts off from the Dominical-San Isidro road.  To request transportation, send an email to jason@regenerationnationcr.com

What if I can't make it and want to attend online?

Thanks to popular requests, we’ve added a live-stream option.  The presentations will be hosted on Zoom. You’ll receive your links, workbook, and other supplementary materials by email once you register.

We’ll kick off on Friday, November 23th, 2022, at 9am CST.

Be prepared for 3 very full days, dedicated to the mission!

The presentations will continue until Sunday afternoon, but we’ll invite you to stay on for a midday roundtable discussion on cultural bridging.

Why doesn't the online option include the Mastermind membership?

The requests for a live stream option came from two types of people.  Those who are out of the country or with their families that weekend. And those who simply can’t find it in their budget to attend.  Those are the people who need this the most.  

While we’re sure those people are likely to join the mastermind as soon as they understand its value, we wanted to make the admission to the cohort as low as we could to make it as accessible as possible. For that reason, we kept the Mastermind as an add-on for live-stream registrants.

How interactive will the Live-Stream option be?

As this is our first time doing this, and it’s a last-minute add-on to the event, we aren’t going to be able to facilitate much interaction during the live-stream.  There may be times when we can take questions, live in the chat, but no promises. Coming to the event is going to be the place for rich interaction.

We will, however, be taking record of any questions you drop in the chat, and the presenters will be able to answer them in our private RBI Cohort group. In that group, we’ll be sharing resources and expanded perspectives of what we learn as the days go by. Online participants will be welcome to keep those conversations going through the weekend and beyond.

What topics will be covered?

Here’s a brief overview:
We’ll start out the journey with a series of exercises helping you to get clear about where you are with your project, where you’d like to take it, why, with whom, and how to understand what those people’s wants and needs are with respect to how you can help meet them.

Next, we’ll begin to explore a range of revenue options, determine which ones might be in best alignment with your project’s vision, and how to take confident steps in those directions.

We’ll dive into methods for creating better agreements, refining our communication of them, and harnessing the power of relationship and community to maximize the potency of what we’re doing.

We have an afternoon dedicated to land stewardship models, navigating CR bureaucracy, cultural differences & integration. We’ll also be discussing ways to experiment with and establish adaptable products, services, and organizations.

On Saturday night, after dinner, we’ll spend a couple of hours in mastermind sessions as we collaboratively help each other work out the kinks in our respective programs.

Before you leave on Sunday, we’ll discuss project management skills, ways to cultivate a healthy workforce culture, and how to build resilience in your digital infrastructure and workspace with some free tools and time-saving methodologies that you won’t know how you got along this far without.  We’ll also discuss ways that you can fine-tune your administrative practices to keep them from becoming burdensome.

We’ll close our weekend with a group discussion on ways that we can create cultural bridges.


What accommodation options are available?

To keep the cost down and maximize the number of people we can invite in, while creating an intimate environment, we’ve priced admission, anticipating the majority of our attendees will be staying in shared rooms. For those who prefer, however, we do have a few private rooms available for an extra fee.

A few of the shared rooms are for two or three people, while 6 of us will be staying in a very comfortable bunk room.

What if I want to commute, rather than stay onsite?

This is a perfectly viable option for anyone who lives in the area.  We have a special price of $555, which includes food throughout the weekend, and access to all presentations, including the evening mastermind breakout sessions. You’ll also get all of the included bonuses to support you in your ongoing education.

To choose this option, please send an email to jason@regenerationnationcr.com, and we’ll send you a special coupon code.

Will the event be recorded?

Yes! We’ll have someone on our team recording all of the sessions so that you can review them after the event.  We’ll need a week or two to get them all edited and packaged up, but once we do we’ll let you know and you’ll have lifetime access to them!

What if I still have questions?

No problem, we’d love to hear from you!
