By Edward Zaydelman

I’m quite passionate in working with top teachers, practitioners, healers and leaders to help share their Wisdom and Transform people’s lives through retreats and events.

I’ve noticed how empowering it is for them to earn a great living while traveling to incredible places – reaching communities worldwide and enjoying the ride!

I’ve also seen how hard it is, after working with countless healers and teachers, for them to handle logistics, budgeting, marketing and other event related intricacies. I love taking those headaches away. I share with you all of my systems, learnings, spreadsheets and other tools to help make your event worry free.

When they get to focus on teaching and not have to worry about how to plan a retreat or how to fill it, the magic really happens and they actually enjoy the process.

I’ve learned from a lot of successes as well as mistakes over the past 15 years and I love sharing that wisdom and seeing teachers I work with thrive. Whether a 20 person retreat or a 120 person conference or even a 7000 person festival – there’s a lot of fundamentals that once you know them make it a lot easier!

Come Study with us in a beautiful Costa Rican Retreat Center, that I designed as a perfect laboratory to teach this subject! We’ve been doing amazing retreats at VIDA for years! It is one of the unique reasons why we are so good at teaching this subject – because we’ve owned our own location and got to know the ins and outs.

About Edward Zaydelman

I grew up in New York and had a background in organizing unique Events and Experiences ranging from 7000 person gatherings to boutique events for celebrities. But after some years in the fast paced Event Industry of New York City, I realized that a shift was needed because it was taking a toll on my body. It was at that point that I turned to integrative medicine for wellness.

So I decided to follow my passion in events and newly discovered interest in Wellness and in 2007 moved Costa Rica to build a Wellness Center & Community. That’s when Puerta a la Vida was born! Out of deep desire to prototype better, more abundant ways to live – with a focus on true wellness and longevity and quality of life.

I spent the next few years meeting top doctors, healers, and practitioners of various wellness modalities while visiting the top wellness centers around the world. Here I was surrounded by the best of the best and they had such a profound impact on my life. I wanted nothing more than to share their knowledge and wisdom with everyone I knew, through the lense of experiential events & retreats.

So in 2015, I launched Experience Vida – a boutique Event & Retreat company – focused on producing one-of-a-kind experiences and curated educational content ranging from wellness to social impact, innovation, and beyond.
