Welcome to your family....

It’s a special family of those who understand you like no other... those of use who are the facilitators, the teachers, the guides, the inspirers, the producers, the leaders...

the Space Holders.

We have a unique perspective of holding the “container” .... whether it’s for an hour long workshop or a multi-day festival... many of the themes and complexities are familiar to all of us; venues, promotion, helpers, structure, conflict, finances, inclusion, feedback, and much much more.

Allow yourself to relax among peers and connect to shared experience. Whether your just starting out, looking to improve, or a seasoned expert... these gatherings are a great way to learn new tools of the trade, share your knowledge, grow your resource network, and just plain recharge in wonderful places with great friends!

Feel good nourishing both the personal and professional sides of your being.

❖❖❖❖❖ LOCATION ❖❖❖❖❖

Morgan's Rock Eco Reserve - San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua
Located on a 4000-acre expanse of Nicaraguan jungle, nearly half of Morgan’s Rock’s vast property is a private protected reserve. Its concept and operation reflects this whimsical feeling of privacy and seclusion.


Bungalows constructed of natural materials are tucked away into the lush jungle. A king size bed and an exterior hanging daybed suspended by thick marine rope highlight the casual luxury you will experience in our Ecolodge. The refreshing plunge pools and stunning ocean views set the relaxed pace for the duration of your stay.

Accommodations Include:
~ Quad Occupancy (pairs & singles)
~ Triple Occupancy (pairs & singles)
~ Double Occupancy (partners & singles)

❖❖❖❖❖ MEALS ❖❖❖❖❖

Thanks to a large working farm with cows, chickens, fruit and vegetable gardens, and even a sustainable shrimp farm, Morgan’s Rock sources roughly 60% of its food products from farming activities that take place right on the premises including an ocean to table concept . Guests are welcome to visit our farm, where they can lend a hand collecting eggs or milking the cows, or simply kick back and enjoy a rustic breakfast cooked on the hearth by the lovely Denia.
