Retreat Description

The Awakened Warrior Retreat is three days of awakening the hidden warrior within! We linkup together at Camp Zen Commando in the wild jungles of Costa Rica and spend three days detoxing, reequipping, and renewing ourselves to be warriors of strength and integrity.

Each day will begin with sessions of meditation, deep breathing, and fitness (suited for all) followed by an action-packed afternoon where we discover our true inner warrior. Our training modules will equip us with the soft warrior skills necessary to overcome the asymmetric challenges we face today. We will immerse ourselves in a natural and cohesive environment focused on learning battle techniques proven by ancient and modern era awakened warriors.

Todd Opalski, Guide | Navigator | Pointman

I served in U.S. special operations for over 20 years, five of those in direct line of combat. After military service, I spent time in the corporate and private trenches of Silicon Valley, California, where I learned how to operate in a new, technology-driven battlefield. Now, based in the serene jungles of Costa Rica, I guide transformative and life-changing experiences at Camp Zen Commando, a total mind-body adventure camp.

"My purpose in life is to help you succeed in any battle you may encounter in today’s world, whether at home, in public, or in the workplace."

I’m a distinguished combat veteran, successful entrepreneur, writer, high-ranking endurance athlete, long-distance thru-hiker, survivalist, and problem solver. All curriculum and courses taught are created by me and unlike any other, you’ll ever see or experience. Let me take you to the next level!!!  More Here
