Awaken Your Spirit in Leadership – February 13-19, 2021

IMILOA PRESENTS

Awaken Your Spirit in Leadership

A women’s retreat on purpose, presence and magic.

 

February 13-19, 2021

THE EVENT

A 7-day immersive retreat for women leaders, to rejuvenate your body, re-ignite your passion for work, and develop a deep, nourishing relationship between your leadership and your spirit.

Imagine yourself in the second half of 2021: you’re a powerhouse female leader and a transformational change agent in your community. But rather than being the one who “keeps it all together” for everyone around you, you now hold keys that enable you to replenish your own energy at will, while uplifting those same people by changing the energy dynamics in your work and family systems.

Perhaps you’ve been feeling like you’re running on empty. Or simply not as fulfilled as you imagined being at this point in your career. Perhaps you’re yearning for community. Or you just need a break from the day-to-day.

You are invited to join embodied leadership coaches LeeAnn Mallorie and Lise Melvin for an intimate gathering of women leaders. Together, we’ll explore parallel paths of rejuvenating your body, re-aligning you to your purpose (hint: there’s an awakening that has to occur), and re-establishing the deep relationship between leadership and spirit. Simultaneously, we’ll explore the rich coast of Costa Rica: deep in the jungles, up on the mountain, and on the beaches that surround Imiloa Institute.

We Offer a New Paradigm of Feminine Leadership If you’ve been feeling burned out, it can be easy to blame the never-ending to-do list on your desk, the piles of papers in your office, or the incessant demands of your boss, staff, colleagues and kids. But what if there were something deeper at work? What if the rules you’ve been following in your leadership were part of an old paradigm that simply doesn’t work anymore – a paradigm designed to keep you at arms-length from both your greatest joys and your greatest possible impact. What if we told you that transformation can happen in an “instant,” as opposed to change that spans years of “adding” and “subtracting,” but essentially leaves you in the same old paradigm? Would you want to learn how?

Whether you’re already a mission-driven leader who feels deeply connected to passion and purpose in your work… but exhausted – or you’re currently lacking clarity about how best to use your energy and skills in service to the world – it’s time to stop doubting yourself and start doing things differently.

What happens when a group of powerful, conscious women leaders take time out of their busy lives to vision, express, design, shift paradigms, rebuild, play, re-juice, and ask powerful questions about the next steps in their life, work and leadership? We say – it’s nothing short of magic.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

Awaken Your Spirit in Leadership is an intimate gathering of like-minded women designed to:

  • revive your leadership and connect you with a deeper layer of professional purpose
  • deeply nourish your body, mind and spirit with healthy food, guided movement mindfulness practices, and unexpected adventure
  • help you name and unravel the unconscious, self-sabotaging habits that drain your energy when the stakes get high in life back at work
  • reconnect with or deepen your intimacy with the earth leave you with new holistic, body-based practices that will change the way you approach self-care and energy management for good

Besides the curriculum, exploration, coaching and discovery, your week at Imiloa in Costa Rica will be filled with new-found possibility, an explosion of flavors with one of the most sought-after chefs in Costa Rica, and unpredictable new friendships that may last a lifetime.

“What happens when your soul begins to awaken in this world to our deep need to love and to serve… O the Beloved will send you wonderful and wild companions!” – Hafiz

Body, Heart, Soul, Spirit Immersion – March 13-24, 2021

IMILOA PRESENTS

Nourish into wholeness

A body, soul, heart and spirit immersive retreat

March 13-24, 2021 | Imiloa Institute | Dominical, Costa Rica

with Muneeza Ahmed

You’ve worked so hard to heal your body. 

But now you know there’s something more…

You started your healing journey to work through the symptoms of chronic illness, and you’ve made big progress in your physical healing and cleansing. AMAZING.

Yet, you’re still yearning for something more.

As you’ve worked through the protocols, taken the supplements, and started to regain your health, you may have noticed a shift.

Your energy is rising, the brain fog is lifting, and with those things, you’ve realized that you’re searching for something deeper and more meaningful for yourself and your life.

Healing for you has become more than “just” living symptom-free, being able to take a vacation, and getting back to “normal” routines. You’re ready for the next level that lies beyond the first phase of physical healing.

It’s time to go further and deeper into your healing journey, connect to your intuition, and access the greater purpose you’re feeling called to.

It’s time to come back to wholeness and experience the restoration of your soul, heart, and spirit.

TAKE YOUR HEALING
TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL

You know what happens when you experience next level healing?

You access your next level life.

ENHANCED INTUITION

Understand where you’re blocked and enhance the connections among your soul, heart, and spirit. Then use this intuition to claim your freedom, take action from your truth daily, and clearly see the path to your purpose.

POWERFUL EMBODIMENT

Clear the toxins, trauma, and fear from your being. Heal the pain in your heart and clear blockages in your body to experience and embody true empowerment.

CLEAR PURPOSE

Discover the roadmap to find your purpose. Strip away the external noise to find your true self, access your power, and discover why you’re here on Earth.

NOURISHING SUPPORT & COMMUNITY AS MEDICINE

Be enveloped in a fully supportive, nourishing environment where you’re completely held and cared for. From your delicious gourmet meals, prepared by our private 5-star chef, to a beautiful jungle landscape to supportive staff and transformational leaders – in this space, the only thing you have to focus on is exploring yourself and experiencing deep transformation.

Sound like just what you’re yearning for?

It will all be waiting and ready for you.

You are invited to the

NOURISH INTO
WHOLENESS RETREAT

A body, soul, heart, and spirit 7-day immersive experience

For 6 nights and 7 days, you’ll only have to focus on one thing: claiming the life you want.

I will guide you to navigate your journey beyond the physical body alone. You’ll learn how to live your life as your WHOLE self through mastery over your body, soul, heart, and spirit.

I know the pain of yearning for something and not being clear on the next steps to get it. At the Nourish Into Wholeness Retreat, you will not only access what you’re looking for – but unleash it.

You already have everything on the inside to live a purposeful, healthy, and free life. We will help you tap into it all. Because when you transform from the inside, you won’t be reliant on the external guidance of others.

Instead, you’ll become your own compass. And begin to experience TRUE autonomy.

Are you ready for your next level of healing?

WHAT WE’LL
EXPERIENCE TOGETHER

Nourishing into wholeness means healing BEYOND physical symptoms in the body.

During our time together, we’ll go deep into all of the essential elements of healing your WHOLE BEING, with each day focused on a different aspect of that journey.

You’ll tap into your senses and intuition through daily movement practices, music and other modalities to connect with your body to access your Soul, Heart, and Spirit.

Nourish Into Wholeness isn’t just about learning concepts, it’s about fully experiencing and assimilating healing through immersion in movement, music, creativity, mindfulness, community, and nature.

DAY ONE: BODY

You’ll connect and ground deeper into your body while learning about adrenal addiction, discerning between intuition and fear, and further clearing toxins from your body and physical environment. You’ll discover how the body communicates with the soul, heart, and spirit to create wholeness. We’ll explore how healing soul, heart, and spirit brings MORE LIGHT into your body and connects you to your DIVINE spiritual purpose.

DAY TWO: SOUL

The Soul is connected to your purpose. You’ll learn how to nourish your soul, align with miracles, and finally discover your divine role in the world. You’ll learn which toxins to avoid and foods to eat for an open, healthy connection to your soul and to support the health of your brain and nervous system – the place where your soul resides. This day will be focused on creating true soul autonomy so you can shine with the light of your true purpose.

DAY THREE: HEART

The Heart is the seat of compassion. You’ll begin to understand your heart, see the emotional walls you’re holding up, and bring compassion to your relationships with others and yourself. We’ll focus on the healing powers of compassion and recognizing what our hearts need in order to let go of suffering with grace, ease, and joy. We’ll also explore using intuition and empathic abilities to enhance the light in your being.

DAY FOUR: SPIRIT

The Spirit is your will and physical strength. You’ll learn about the connection between your gut and liver and how to create peace from the inside by transforming your gut health. You’ll tap into what your spirit needs in order to fearlessly receive messages from your heart and soul and learn to allow for grace in your daily life.

DAY FIVE: INTEGRATION & EMBODIMENT

You’ll spend this final full day integrating and embodying every aspect of healing you’ve experienced throughout the retreat. Integration and embodiment are about learning how to take your experience during the retreat into the rest of your life. You’ll learn how to work through any roadblocks that may arise and discover the next steps to continue healing beyond this sacred space.

(VIP ONLY) TWO ADDITIONAL DAYS FOR HEALING & EMBODIMENT

For our VIP guests, you will arrive one day early for an even deeper healing experience. On your first full day, you’ll have a private session with Muneeza & our facilitators – to access our gifts, insights, and intuition on an individual level. This gives you the opportunity to have your specific needs addressed by powerful practitioners.

You’ll also stay an extra day at the end to experience additional integration and embodiment so you can continue to feel totally nourished and transformed when you go back to “regular life.”

ABOUT THE IMILOA INSTITUE

We are proud to host the Nourish Into Wholeness Retreat at the Imiloa Institute in Costa Rica.

This 22-acre jungle and ocean oasis is connected to sacred indigenous land and built alongside the indigenous Costa Rican people. It’s like an extended treehouse for healing, nourishing, and transforming yourself.

In order to heal, you have to feel safe – in yourself and your environment. At the Nourish Into Wholeness Retreat, we’ve created a cocoon of safety where you’ll be fully held, supported and cared for by us as your leaders and by your restorative surroundings, so you can feel free to let go.

Imagine…

lounging by the saltwater pool, soaking in the hot tub, or meditating in a treehouse, surrounded by complete tranquility

being served 5-star meals and gourmet adrenal snacks served to you, with no prep or clean up required

and having the time and space to focus 100% on YOU – with a group of amazing people who fully “get” where you’ve been and the transformation you’re going through.

You start your journey to wholeness the moment that you step onto the land.
Will we see you there?

Is Nourish Into Wholeness
Right for YOU?

I’ve said yes to my intuition in a bold, brave way to create the Nourish Into Wholeness Retreat.

If you feel the pull in your heart to join this experience, I ask that you do the same and join me and our guest facilitators in April.

We’re intentionally creating this space for people who:

  • Are ready for next level healing to create a next level life
  • Have some experience with body healing and Medical Medium®
  • Yearn to dive deep into their work, connect with their purpose, and discover their true self
  • Are open to being in a jungle environment and deeply connect with nature (beauty, bugs, and all)
  • Understand the gravity and transformational power of this work
  • Are willing to implement radical change in their life as a result of this work
  • Are ready to say YES to themselves and their true calling
  • Are open-minded, open-hearted and willing to be supported

We know that this space IS NOT for people who:

  • Are totally new to spiritual healing, body healing, and Medical Medium®
  • Aren’t open to changing themselves or their lives
  • Can’t handle nature or being in the outdoors

If you feel the pull from your heart and a yes from your body, you’re meant to join us in April 2020.
Are you ready to say YES to that pull?

Frequently Asked Questions

Does my ticket include flights to Costa Rica?
No, it does not. You will be responsible for booking your own flights from your home city to San Jose airport (SJO). Twenty-minute charter flights between SJO and Quepos airport in Dominical (20 minutes from Imiloa) are included in your ticket.
How do I get from the airport to the Imiloa Institute (and back again)? How far away is it?
Once you’ve arrived at the airport in Costa Rica, we will take care of the rest. You and your luggage will be transported from San Jose airport (SJO) to Quepos airport in Dominical (and back again) via a private charter plane. You’ll make the 20-minute trip from the airport in Dominical to the retreat center in Imiloa Institute’s comfortable, air-conditioned SUVs. There will be only one charter flight on your arrival day, so depending on what time you arrive in San Juan, you may need to wait inside the airport for the charter flight to Dominical.
Do I need travel insurance? Is there a company you recommend?

It is recommended to purchase travel insurance for trips to foreign countries. We recommend purchasing travel insurance through the credit card company used to book your ticket. Many credit card companies offer travel insurance as part of their credit card offering. So read the fine print of your credit card company.

Will we be outside in the jungle during the entire retreat?

The Imiloa Institute is surrounded by Costa Rican jungle, and many of the structures are open-air so you will be “outdoors” a lot. There will be time to lounge by the pool, visit the onsite waterfall, and go to the beach. Your rooms are air-conditioned, but you will be in a warm, humid environment. Be sure that you are capable and willing for this before purchasing your ticket.

Can I bring my partner, spouse, child, or friend?

This retreat is ONLY for people who are on a healing journey with the Medical Medium® protocols, and everyone who attends must pay for and participate in the retreat. It will not be appropriate to bring family or friends who would not be participating.

If I buy my ticket and then can’t come for some reason will I get a refund?

If you cancel your participation ninety (90) days or more prior to the Retreat, you will receive a 90% refund of your deposit. 

If you cancel participation less than 90 days prior to the Retreat, you will receive a 50% refund of the amount you’ve paid.

Tickets are non-transferrable, so if you decide not to attend for any reason, you will not be able to give your ticket to someone else.

Is there a payment plan?

Absolutely! You can choose a payment plan for any package when you checkout. You will be asked to put down a 25% deposit, and then split the remaining balance into 3 payments through March 2020. Your entire ticket must be paid in full by March 10th, 2020.

I would love to attend, but I still have questions! Can you help?

Yes! If you still have questions, please email us at [email protected]. Please make sure you have completed the Retreat Application here. You can then talk to Muneeza on an exploratory call to discuss your questions further.

I’m ready to buy my ticket. What happens next?

Click one of the purchase buttons on this page, choose your ticket type and payment option, and complete the payment information. You’ll be redirected to a short form to share your personal information, and then you’ll receive a welcome email with all of the specifics about the retreat, how to book flights, what to pack, and everything else you need to know. We can’t wait to see you there!

Say YES to nourishing your body, soul, heart, and spirit

The Nourish Into Wholeness Retreat isn’t just about getting pampered and shifting out of your day-to-day. Although it DOES include those things.

Most importantly, this experience is about claiming ownership of you, your power, and your life. So you can discover what’s in store for you beyond that first phase of healing.

We are working with Truth to help you reconnect with the parts of you that you can’t tangibly access – in a deeply connected way that NO other practitioners offer.

You can only access this method of transformation with me in Costa Rica in April.

Remember when you first started your healing journey? When you first said yes to learning more about healing naturally, feeling drawn to the work of a medical intuitive, and connecting to your body?

You know that no one enters this work logically. That wasn’t a decision from the brain. No, it was an answer to a call from within.

It was because something deep within you desired this path, this work, and this life.

The biggest breakthroughs happen when we invest in ourselves – especially the scariest leaps.

We know that so much is waiting for you on the other side. The choice is yours – once again.

 

Will you say yes to the calling of your soul and nourish yourself into wholeness?

IMILOA PRESENTS

Madre Tierra Eco Art & Yoga Retreat

March 24-29, 2021

THE EVENT

Are you a mental health professional, or just someone interested in utilizing creativity to bring new dimensions in your way of seeing and thinking?

If you are in a transitional phasefeeling stuck in your personal life, business or practice then this retreat is for you!

Join us for a wildly liberating and relaxing retreat in the sacred land of Costa Rica. Let us teach you how to utilize creativity to examine fears and insecurities that are preventing you from living your best life!

When there is awareness, change may occur.

Practitioners in the field of mental health, creative art therapies and spiritual counseling will greatly benefit from this experience. However, this retreat is presented in a unique format that allows practitioners and non-practitioners to gain hands on experience using therapeutic art making and yoga in their own lives or practice.

The art guided sessions will focus on your creative process with the support and guidance of a trained mental health professionalemphasizing the use of art as ritual, interconnection, interaction, and relationships. The art making process will evolve around the unconscious and the conscious; on metaphor and symbol. 

With the hustle and bustle of daily life, we oftentimes find ourselves alienated from our natural environment, which is why Madre Tierra Retreat focuses on our innate primal bond with nature, with an emphasis on grounding, creativity development, mindfulness and impermanence, making it effective for building coping skills, reducing stress and anxiety, and preventing burn-out.

We invite you to slow things down on this exotic tropical retreat, take your shoes off, feel the temperature of the ground, the texture of the earth. Breath in the evergreen air and feel the exhilaration of renewed energy after a challenging yet rewarding hike in the sacred mountains of Costa Rica. Let the tides of Costa Rica’s Pacific coast tickle your toes as we take you on a journey of all the senses.

No artistic skills or yoga experience necessary! 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  1. How to receive advice and guidance from the natural world on a current problem, question, or challenge in your life.
  2. Rekindling a natural spark for awe, wonder, and playful spontaneity in your life through creative self-expression and nature emersion.
  3. How to rediscover, reconcile, and/or embrace the creative mastermind within you and use it as a tool for examining negative beliefsfears, or insecurities that that are preventing you from living your best life.

ELLA DUFRENE

ELLA RAPHAELLE DUFRENE, MPS, ATR, RYT200 VISUAL ARTIST, ART THERAPIST, YOGA INSTRUCTOR & FOUNDER

Ella believes that art is our most primitive style of communication and expression, dating back to our earliest forms of art making in prehistoric cave paintings. Driven by the instinctual knowledge of the innate and powerful healing powers of art, Ella received her Masters in Art Therapy & Creativity Development from the Pratt Institute in 2015.

Deeply connected to the restorative flow and wisdom fostered by Mother Earth, Ella began exploring eco-art therapy techniques, and moving toward an ecological artistic context that emphasizes collaboration and interconnection. This lead her to facilitate her first Eco-Art Therapy Retreat in 2016 in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia. Currently, Ella is based out of Miami, FL, where she works as an art therapist in hospice, as well as in her private practice, Lila Art Therapy Services, LLC.

She has experience working with people on the autism spectrum, children and adults with special needs and developmental delays, drug/alcohol addiction, eating disorders, as well as adults and children in both individual and group settings. Ella recently joined Guitars Over Guns non-profit organization with the intention to inspire and empower at risk youth through the arts.

Ella emphasizes a holistic approach to wellness and utilizes a playful ‘person first’ approach to therapy. All of those that know and work with Ella can feel her passion for the healing properties of nature, art and movement. Ella approaches her day to day and work life with a zest for life, a youthful spirit and a contagiously open mind.

“I use my social media to focus in on and reinforce the idea of self-care, physically and mentally. I do not do this for others but as a consistent reminder to myself.

I’ve been actively working for the last year towards acknowledging and confronting my demons such as anger, irrationality, self-pity, resentment, immaturity, etc…

A few months ago at the Madre Tierra Retreat, I moved from acknowledgement to acceptance. Since then i have felt freed from the burden of these traits.

I discovered that I am fully empowered and in control and I was taught some strategies to work on. It’s not easy for me to say I’m no angel, but at least now I no longer feel helpless towards self-improvement.”

~ Ana Xochitl

I have now been to two different Madre Tierra retreats and that’s just the beginning. These experiences have been transformative for me, and I will continue to attend as many retreats as I can.

I’ve benefitted immensely from the varied workshops and especially meeting from the fellow attendees. What a beautiful way to connect with like-minded people. Madre Tierra retreats combine nature and art with a focus on personal growth. It’s spiritual summer camp!

Personally, I was so inspired by the last retreat that I’ve continued to pursue art, painting, collage, and try all kinds forms of self-expression. I cannot thank Ella enough for creating these magical retreats and I feel lucky to have been a part of them. Can’t wait for the next time I can reconnect with myself and Mother Earth!

~ Faye Ibars

Words can’t even begin to describe the beautiful experience I had at Madre Tierra retreat. During my time I had the chance to experience so many different things… I got to spend time with my friends on a deeper level, and also got to meet some extraordinary people that were new and amazing.

The environment that was created was so unique and special that people including myself were able to release their inhibitions and truly be themselves. The tears, laughter, openness and appreciation that joined us all as one is something I’ll never forget. The Madre Tierra retreat came together in such a harmonious way that it left all of us who started as strangers – feeling connected, peaceful and as if we had known each other forever. I truly believe everyone found a little piece of themselves that they didn’t know they were searching for.

Regardless of any insecurities that I’ve had, I felt a sense comfort even in my own discomfort, and found myself being able to let go. The energy and support that was provided was the trigger to releasing known and unknown stressors and in return inspiring new thoughts, clarity and intentions.

The Madre Tierra team and facilitators worked tirelessly to bring together a truly exceptional and affirming experience. Throughout the retreat they did an amazing job striking the perfect balance between yoga, self development, creating positive affirmations through artistic influences and delicious vegan dishes. The Hostel in the forest also provided and taught me the respect and consideration nature deserves, shifting the mindset and whole being

TESTIMONIALS

“Activated brings together an incredible group of entrepreneurs and professionals who want to leave a legacy throughout the world. In two trips, I’ve made countless new allies I can reach out to on numerous topics and 6-7 exceptionally close friends.Entrepreneurship can be isolating, but the activated tribe bridges that gap!”

~ Krish Chopra

“It was my first time attending the retreat , it was such a highly curated community, you will think that all of these strangers would not gel so well, but we did , we were all like minded, super passionate , motivated, focused, wanted to give back to the community and we were able to hangout and disconnect for a couple of days. We went boating, we volunteered for an afternoon, we meditated every day, did yoga and fitness classes in the morning on the beach, it was such an incredible experience, so if you are looking to reset, unwind, mastermind with others like minded individuals, this is a retreat for you. Hope to see you next year”

The Historic Rainforest Summit – April 22-26, 2021

IMILOA PRESENTS

The Historic Rainforest Summit

April 22-26, 2021

THE EVENT

IT’S TIME to Change the Course of Humankind

Join global leaders in government, conservation, entertainment and business as we deliver a historic and unprecedented framework to create swift and massive change in order to save Earth’s Rainforests. This immersive Rainforest Summit will be held on the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day near Dominical, Costa Rica in a world-class estate nestled within primary rainforest overlooking jungle canopies and the Pacific Ocean.

THIS IS OUR CHALLENGE

In the last 40 years, our planet has lost rainforest the size of Europe. In the next 40, we may not have rainforests at all. And yet it is rainforests that provide the oxygen we need to survive, the flora that cures disease and animal life that maintains a balance in this ecosystem we call Earth. But they are dying. Being cleared. Burned. Destroyed.

OUR MISSION

This intimate, diverse and powerful group will create and sign a historic accord for consumer action, for impact effectiveness, for indigenous people, for responsible business and government stewardship. Our work will lead not just for rainforests but for all impact. The world is waiting for us. And we are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
