“Imiloa is a sacred and beautiful place, a place that provided rest for my soul and nourishment for my body unlike any I’ve ever experienced. I want to gather up all my friends and family and bring them with me to Imiloa the next time I go so that they can experience the love and grace that I experienced during my time there. I can’t thank the Imiloa team enough for what they’ve created. My soul is forever grateful.”
