Home-Away-from-Home for the World’s Leading Masters and Educators Who Want to Share Their Gifts with the World


Imiloa was named by a Hawaiian elder, and it means:

“Creativity expressed through wonder and imagination”


Imiloa is a home and an experience where all living beings are welcomed to awaken their consciousness in service and harmony to ourselves and the planet

We are an intercontinental institute for the education and advancement of humanity. Our world embracing vision is cataylzed with the expansion of six additional institutes. Costa Rica is our flagship location.  

We believe that through a spirit of service and a posture of learning, inviting retreat leaders and educators to hold workshops and events in parallel with profound, meaningful, sustained community involvement with our team, their families in the communities that both Imiloa and them call home, that we can contribute to the individual and social transformation of the planet.  

Costa Rica is the cradle of the North and South, the Incas and the Aztecs, and it was the perfect first intercontinental location for us. 

As a global community eco-system focusing on education, mentorship and service, Imiloa is the intersection of discovery, creativity, imagination and transformation. 

Imiloa is a place where you can reconnect with the childlike wonder inside of you. Think about your favorite book when you were 7 or 8 years old… the hero of that book is who you get to become at Imiloa. Transformation ought to be playful and profound, and in service to communities beyond just your own. That is the Hero’s Journey, after all. 

Let the sounds, smells and power of nature awaken your six senses. Let it wash away all the noise and congestion of modern life, leaving behind only the authentic you. Maybe it’s been buried. No worry. It’s there and will be powerfully re-ignited at Imiloa.

Discover the stillness—the peace—the transformation. All of this and more awaits you at Imiloa Institute in the mystical Costa Rica jungle.

Welcome Home


Our team was selected for their emotional intelligence, heart and humility. They align with our core values of causing a Joyful and Fun environment, our Eco-Aware approach to building and sharing, transparency and that “I can only win, if the entire team wins.”

Our team mostly consists of Ticos (Costa Rican locals) and the Indigenous who have come together in a spirit of service and discovery. They are dedicated to the process of creating our shared vision (and yours!).

Come to Imiloa in Costa Rica. You’ll be gotten in the experience. And once Imiloa gets you, you’ll never be the same.

Jake was the youngest host and executive producer in late night television on ABC after Jimmy Kimmel. But when he moved to Maui, he discovered the powerful relationships created in the intimacy of home environments. This led to him developing the vision of Imiloa as an intercontinental institute and educational center headquartered on every continent, with the intent of serving local communities around the planet.
