Jan 27 – Feb 1, 2020

The Event

Achieve your goals through an intimate life-changing retreat experience aligning your mind, body and spirit

.
Exclusively for CEOs and Entrepreneurs who are seeking to reinvent, reflect and relax. You will leave challenged and catalyzed.

Get Unstuck // Get Clarity // Get Scaling

WHAT YOU WILL GAIN

On the Scaling Your Mindset retreat, you will have space and time to reflect, recenter, and renew your vision, strategy, and purpose in business and in life. You will leave in peace, with a plan, knowing your next steps. You will also have a new home where you can return and a new network of like-minded business leaders.

Begin each day with mindful yoga and meditation, along with a plant-based breakfast prepared by Imiloa’s chefs. Each day of our retreat centers around a crucial area for business leadership: Mind, Body, and Spirit. Learn through transformative coaching sessions and intentional time for self work the tools and habits essential to lead and scale your business in each of these areas. Connect with yourself, your peers, and your coaches by closing each day with commitments and an action plan for the future. Then, discover all that Costa Rica has to offer with special group surprises in the evening: beaches at sunset, hidden paths and waterfalls, and life-affirming indigenous traditions and music. Take one day of rest to surf, book a massage, and play on the pristine beaches of nearby towns as you soak in the experience of a lifetime. As our week draws to a close, you will create a blueprint for your next steps in business and in life, so you can carry this life changing experience with you long after the five days are over.

Investment for transportation to and from San Jose airport, 5 days lodging and chef-prepared, plant-driven meals, three days transformative coaching and one day to play and explore = $3500 for single occupancy, $2500 per person for double lodging, and $2000 per person for triple lodging. Airfare to and from Costa Rica is not included.

As a strategic business coach and advisor, Glen has all the skill and acumen you could ask for, and more. What sets him apart from most in the field is that he’s ‘been there, done that’ as a public company CEO and entrepreneur. If you are looking to ‘cross the chasm’ to high growth for your company, you would be lucky to have Glen as your coach..”

~ Tom Kippola, Co-Founder & Managing Partner The Chasm Group

“I attended an extraordinary two day retreat created by Oswaldo. It was an amazing and transformative experience postivitely impacting both my emotional and physical states. As a result I fundamentally changed some daily practices and am much better off for it. I cannot wait for the next retreat. Thank you, Oswaldo.”

~ Partner, BAST AMRON LLP

“Oswaldo organized an amazing retreat for our EO Forum. Everything was planned out perfectly and the event was perfect for our group. Highly recommend.”

~ Ben McCrery, President, One Park Financial

“My business had been plateaued for the past five years. With Glen’s expert coaching and guidance, I am finally working on my business rather than just in my business. I highly recommend Glen’s coaching to every business owner who is open to pushing themselves to achieve their potential.”

~ Sara Commers, Commers Custom Jewlery

“One of the greatest experiences of my life, it truly exceeded my expectations. Covered a lot of important topics. I like that a variety of activities were used, from restorative yoga techniques, facilitated small group sessions to breath work. I appreciated how safe the environment felt, no pressure to share or feeling of judgement allowing me to get out of my comfort zone. Good balance between activities, teaching, conversation, etc. For me the retreat was much more experimental than I anticipated. I appreciate your wisdom in that most of my hang-ups are emotional rather than intellectual.”

~ Raymond Mobayed, CEO, 4IT

“Working with Sandra was magical. Throughout the course of working together and beyond I saw the topics we were working on create noticeable shifts in my life, sometimes within days. It was an embodied experience of how our personal consciousness, mind and emotions influence our external world and reality. When life served some tough transitions Sandra held space for me with deep love and compassion – my heart will never be the same. I would even go so far as to say working with her and some of the alternative methodology she uses made some of the shadow processes that were coming up fun…I repeat, some! Working with Sandra felt like speaking with a friend who really cares for you, wants the best, and has your back through helping you have your own as you’re navigating the diverse and often unexpected terrain of personal growth..”

Rewire Your Brain and Rewrite Your Life – Feb 12-17, 2020

IMILOA PRESENTS

Rewire Your Brain and Rewrite Your Life:

Taking the Bold Step Out of Old Thinking and Into New Possibilities

Feb 12 – 17, 2020

THE EVENT

This is not your typical retreat. This isn’t a soft reset or a quick fix. This is about building a new foundation upon which the new you will be built, and remain standing through anything.

The brain and nervous system are remarkably adaptive. Neurons and the connections between them are continually changing in response to new information. Not only are thoughts and feelings the product of the brain, they are the shaper of it. In this 6 day/ 5 night retreat you will learn how to use this adaptivity to rewire your brain for new possibilities.

Through a carefully designed and expertly guided program that integrates the latest research in neurobiology with ancient yogic practices (pranayama, mantra, chanting, and asana) you will learn how to overwrite the old stories that no longer serve you and connect with a new vision of who you are and how you want to live. You will take that first bold step out of old ways of thinking and into new possibilities. ​
 

The first two full days of the retreat are spent in deep practice and one-on-one work with your teacher, Jenny Arrington. The last two full days include time for exploration, processing, and integration. Sound healing technology (in the form of crystal singing bowls and gong baths) will be used to help integrate the lessons of each day while calming the nervous system.

Included in the retreat pricing are two preparatory calls in the week prior to the retreat where you will learn about the science of neuroplasticity and the neurobiologial effects of meditation, mantra, and sound from Jenny and Tait Medina, Ph.D. 

The retreat is limited to 15 women. This small-group setting allows us to cultivate a culture where we feel safe and supported to connect and share. It also allows for personalized attention and one-on-one time with your teachers, Jenny and Tait.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

WE INTEND FOR YOU TO:

  • Learn about the science of neuroplasticity, meditation, mantra, and sound healing
  • Learn about your patterns of thinking and the neurology behind them
  • Learn about and/or dig deeper into Kundalini Yoga practices
  • Identify and connect with a new vision of who you are and how you want to live
  • Learn tools that you can use to hack your nervous system, “code over” limiting fear thoughts, and rewire your brain for new possibilities
  • Create a plan for integrating the tools and insights you gain on the retreat into your everyday life so that you can maintain and continue to develop your new mindset and way of being.

ABOUT YOUR MASTERS

Jenny Arrington

Co-Founder of Rebel Human and Wellness Advisor at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, Jenny Arrington believes that obstacles aren’t in our way, they are the way. After a decades long struggle with clinical depression and an eating disorder, it was a combination of somatic therapy, asana, meditation, and Kundalini Yoga that finally gave her the ability to process past trauma, forgive, and heal. It was through these challenges and healing that Jenny found her calling as a teacher.

Trained under Harvard neuroscientist, Dr. Srini Pillay, Jenny integrates the ancient tools of yoga, meditation, and ritual with the modern science of neurocoaching to help her students unlock their inner wisdom, connect with their instincts, and overcome their limiting fears.

Jenny works with all populations and ages, including private executive coaching. She has been featured in publications including US News & World Report, Chicago Tribune, Shape, and Chicago Magazine to name a few. And her first book, The Kundalini Yoga Posture Manual: A Comprehensive Guide to Teaching and Practicing the Postures, is launching this Winter. 

Jenny is a master at making connections between the wisdom in ancient practices and recent findings within the fields of neuroscience and acoustical physics. Her students like to say that she teaches only those things that either have been proven through thousands of years of practice or have been peer-reviewed. She is also known for her ability to explain esoteric concepts such as the infinite, the spirit, and energy in ways that make sense in our real life.

When Jenny is not teaching and developing educational programming you might find her on the high-wire or the flying trapeze at a circus and performing arts school whose board she chairs because as she likes to say, “I try to do something that scares me at least once every day.”

Tait Medina

Tait Medina received her Ph.D. in sociology with an emphasis in medical sociology and social psychology from Indiana University. Her research has focused primarily on cross-cultural and cross-temporal conceptualizations of health, illness, and healing and the impact these have on subjective and objective experiences of distress. At the core of her research is the principal insight that health, illness, and healing cannot be simply regarded as biological or medical phenomena.

Tait taught for a number of years at the University of Michigan and later worked as a senior research scientist at the Institute for Health Research and Policy at the University of Illinois Chicago. Her research has been published in leading peer-reviewed journals such as American Journal of Psychiatry, American Journal of Public Health, and American Journal of Sociology. 

Prior to attending graduate school, Tait enjoyed a successful career as a professional ballet dancer. At fifteen she was hired by the First National Touring Company of The Phantom of The Opera as one of its original members and then later performed with the Broadway company. She retired at 26 to pursue a career in academia.

Throughout her time as a ballet dancer, student, professor, researcher, and mom, Tait turned to the practice of meditation (in all its many forms) to remain emotionally balanced, physically resilient, and mentally focused and in 2016 left academia to found two wellbeing companies: Oto Float, a floatation therapy studio; and Rebel Human (with Jenny Arrington), a hands-on educational organization offering classes, immersive retreats, workshops, and one-on-one development sessions that integrate ancient yogic practices (meditation, mantra, breathwork), neuroscientific research, and creative expression. 

TESTIMONIALS

“Jenny has supported and guided me through a time of significant growth and transition. I came to her lost to myself. Through her carefully crafted classes and simple yet powerful messages, I’ve reconnected with my true self, which has empowered me to approach the changing facets of my life with strength, peace, courage, and grace. 
 
Tait is visionary. She is deeply committed to and connected with us, her clients. Keeping our desires for personal growth and care at the heart of her offerings, she seeks to bring us practices grounded in science, spirituality, and ancient wisdom. Her conscious attention to detail creates an environment of peace and beauty that envelops us as we practice. 
 
Jenny and Tait together are light, and I’m so grateful they’ve sparked the same in me” ~ Sarah McGoohan

What I love about Jenny’s teaching style is the contradiction it sustains. She recognizes the thinking skeptical mind as the most susceptible entry point. She begins by engaging your ever-rationalizing Cartesian brain explaining the scientific and medical value of the practice. It all makes terrific sense and you’re in. 
 
​But then the magic. Once knee deep in the asana or the breathing, when you are sweating and reevaluating previously held notions that you’re in pretty decent shape for your age and since when was breathing such a workout; you realize you’ve been tricked. And the whole thing is a ruse to open the heart space, the sweet gooey center where unlimited potential is unleashed as an accidental byproduct of the whole stinking ordeal. 
 
Jenny is a master and anyone lucky enough to add themselves to the ranks of her dynamic student body is fortunate beyond measure and should be hungry and prepared for interior and exterior transformation of the most profound order. ~ Elizabeth

I discovered Tait Medina one day while rushing around town, multitasking as usual, trying to juggle bottomless coffee cups, endless errands, traffic, weather,  etc. The moment I entered her peaceful oasis I felt a serenity and clarity that threw the chaos of my daily routine into stark relief. I knew I wanted more of “this” in my life! Tait Medina proved an immediate “kindred spirit” who’s intelligence, compassion and humor made her an instant friend, a guide and a fellow seeker. Rebel Human is a curated circle of powerful, knowledgeable and joyous educators including Jenny Arrington, who’s beautiful Kundalini Yoga teachings have become an integral part of my personal journey towards self-care, self-acceptance and self-love. Whether participating in intensely focused group classes, luxurious and intentional retreats, sumptuous meals or stirring sound baths I have come to expect and depend upon the vibrant Rebel Human community for spiritual growth and nourishment of the soul. ~ Kristen

Experience

THE GROUNDS TEAM

FACILITATORS

Andrew Sealy is a connection catalyst, a yoga artist, and a movement creator. He is an internationally recognized yoga teacher whose teachings of compassionate touch inspire people worldwide.

His days are spent traveling to find adventure, practicing to cultivate growth, and constantly absorbing wisdom to create new experiences that he shares with love, to friends around the world.

Through the unique practice of Yoga and mindful living, Andrew embodies progressive knowledge while positively influencing and empowering his students. Andrew’s teachings aim to answer the question:

How can we adapt to create and evolve to sustain?

Visit Andrews instagram

To support his desired lifestyle, Jonathan began focusing his martial arts training on Systema (Russian Martial Art), which is a
wholistic way of life. Systema teaches principles (as opposed to
techniques) pertaining to breathing, posture, movement and
relaxation. 

Body Cultivation sessions, will provide participants with an opportunity to embody lasting awareness of their breath, posture, movement and where they hold tension in their bodies. This allows one to remain present and relaxed, in order to get the most from their Envision experience.
Participants will learn Systema breathing principles that can be applied in every waking moment. Principles that, when applied, create a calm and centred psyche, no matter what challenges may arise. 
This will allow individuals to get the most from their entire Human experience and to move through shifts as they occur. These shifts will inevitably occur since nearly everyone attending this retreat will be coming from outside of Costa Rica and into very high vibrational conscious containers. When coming into such containers, individuals will be naturally entrained into a higher vibration frequency. This shift in vibrational frequency can be intense as lower vibration feeling and emotions attached to limiting beliefs, trauma’s (this life and past life), and shadow aspects of ourselves, will rise to the surface to be looked at.  By maintaining a calm and centred psyche, individuals will have an opportunity to look at what arises, without judgement, love that and let it go (like every breath;). We are talking about expansion and transformation…

Chef Pedro is native to Costa Rica. He’s been cooking since the age of 7, and has owned his own cooking school and restaurant. Before Imiloa, he was one of the most sought after plant based chefs in the country, often traveling by plane for a week or two of retreats in one part of the country, and then moving to the next.

At age 31, Pedro was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Over the course of six years, and through Ayurvedic medicine and moving his diet to an exclusively plant based diet, Pedro shrank the tumor. It has however left him deaf and blind in one eye.

At Imiloa, Pedro creates mouth watering cuisine that both satisfies and satiates, and is an explosion of flavor and delight. With his mother as his sous chef (she knows all his recipes) and an amazing kitchen team, Pedro has never received less than a 5.0 in our customer rating from thousands of guests who fill out surveys at the completion of their retreat.

TESTIMONIALS

“I have been a client of Rebecca Hendrickson since 2009. During the years we have worked together I have moved from wanting relief from PTSD symptoms and reconnection with family members, to requesting help with new business ventures and pursuing my passion. I regularly and openly recommend her services to my closest friends and colleagues because I know the value of the wonderful results I enjoy from sessions with her. I don’t know how I could have had as much success as I’ve had without her help, talents, and gifts. Through Becky, Energy Healing has blessed my life. I often wonder how so many go without a great energy practitioner? ”

~ David H

“I’ve had a few treatments by Becky Hendrickson. I honestly don’t know where I would be without her. There are so many issues she has helped me with. First, I experienced an ancestral healing that changed my life. She is an incredible woman with an incredible gift. Many of my family and friends have had healing sessions with her and I have seen amazing changes for the good. I would recommend her to anyone who wishes to be cleared of negative, stuck energies that keep them from having a higher quality of life. I now have more hope and a greater love for life. She is a gift from God. With Love and Light.”

~ Susan Callahan

“I have always gone straight to Becky for my energy healing. Her professionalism and intuitive nature always put me at ease. She always goes the extra mile in making sure that our sessions end with me feeling better. She always taps right into the heart of what is troubling me. Working with Becky has been a pleasure. With every session she understands my unique energy better and better and it is so nice to work with someone who is so caring and personable. I would recommend her to anyone, especially for phone sessions. Even from far away, her guidance and intuition has helped me overcome depression and other debilitating emotional trauma.””

~ Vanessa Gulley

“I would first & foremost say, Becky Hendrickson is a compassionate, loving, authentic healer! I was at a point in my life where I felt so “stuck,” confused, and mostly unhappy. My life was going nowhere. My physical body started suffering, primarily with pain and dizziness. I was shutting down from life. On the advice of a beloved relative I scheduled a healing session with Becky. It was life changing! She very gently applied her gift to assist me in recovering mySELF! Remarkable! Members of my family have also greatly benefited from Becky’s healing work. She uses her gifts to assist her clients in finding their inner peace. I am looking forward to an ongoing relationship with this wonderful healer!”

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.

“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~ Stephany Blanco

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”
