Tending the garden

Apr 1 – 6, 2020

THE EVENT

Retreat
Overview

Created and curated by Trauma Specialist Jimanekia Eborn, this retreat is for femmes of color who have experienced – and survived – sexual assault.

This retreat honors a group of femmes who are constantly pushed to the side, overlooked, and over-sexualized by supporting them in their healing.

Jimanekia Eborn

Founder of Trauma Queen

she/her

 

Jimanekia Eborn is a Comprehensive Sex Educator and Sexual Assault & Trauma Expert. She is the host of Trauma Queen – a podcast mini-series for survivors of assault and their allies.

As an expert in her field and as a survivor herself, she also knows firsthand the importance of finding healing and community when it comes time to process your trauma.

Femmes of color are disproportionately impacted by sexual violence – and the few that do report their assault or seek help are often ignored, invalidated, or dismissed. There is a lack of resources in support of femmes of color and the systems that do exist leave their patients further emotionally exhausted & wounded.

We need effective & compassionate care from teachers who understand our experiences & our needs

We need Tending the Garden.

Body, Heart, Soul, Spirit Immersion – Apr 13 – 19, 2020

IMILOA PRESENTS

Nourish into wholeness

A body, soul, heart and spirit immersive retreat

Apr 13, 2020 – April 19, 2020 | 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.”

Carol Ritchie

Carol Ritchie, MA, CPC, earned her Masters degree in Spiritual Psychology and Counseling in 2010, and has also been a Certified Wellness Coach for the past 10 years.

As a Holistic Counselor, Carol’s ability to “hold-space” and listen deeply to what each person’s heart and soul is revealing, helps her to attune to the areas in one’s life in need of healing. At the core of painful experiences and difficult life challenges lies the “Authentic” and Healthy Self, which we seek to uncover and express more fully. Through this process we are able to “re-frame” and see these hardships as blessings and opportunities for growth. Through a shift in perception and empowered “choice,” we are able to “use” these blessings in service to our upliftment and healing.

Carol holds Group sessions as well as individual, enabling each participant to express themselves, open their hearts, and practice new tools and skills, in a safe and supportive space. Carol assists her clients in applying the Medical Medium® information, and has been embracing and incorporating the practices in her own life for the past ten years.

While attending graduate school, she developed Interstitial Cystitis leading her down the path to holistic health and healing for herself after an exhaustion of efforts and limited progress with conventional medicine. After enduring and healing painful physical symptoms, she felt compelled to help other women suffering with the same or similar conditions. She worked for 3 years specializing in Women’s Health, specifically Pregnancy, Pre and Post-Partum Conditions, and Pelvic Floor Pain & Dysfunction for both men and women. She has a deep understanding for what her patients go through and has been able to truly connect with them. In 2015, Alexis fell seriously ill again. It was at this time that she stumbled across Medical Medium® information and has been applying these protocols ever since with much success.

With her own personal experience in suffering with and healing from mystery chronic illness, Alexis combines her medical training with the full truth and knowledge of Medical Medium® to tap into her intuition to help others heal. In addition to coaching people to better health, Alexis loves to get creative in the kitchen and runs a plant-based monthly meal plan subscription service offering meal plan packages with Medical Medium® compliant recipes.

And working exclusively with our VIP guests, we have…

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?

The Historic Rainforest Summit – April 22- 29, 2020

IMILOA PRESENTS

The Historic Rainforest Summit

April 22-24, 2020

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.

YOUR VENUE

TESTIMONIALS

“I have participated in a number of plant medicine ceremonies that cleared emotional and energetic blockages leaving me feeling lighter and more centered. My time with Anke and Marie Lou at Imiloa took me to the next level. Their medicine, their individual attention, and their insights and guidance were instrumental in helping me have an incredibly transformative experience. What more can I say? I am eternally grateful to them for their love and for providing such a safe place to go deep. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

~ Lisa R

“I would like to thank you! Three years ago you brought me in contact with the medicine for the first time. And that changed my life completely. My attitude towards life, the world around me and above all towards my own self has changed fundamentally.

Sometimes, when I pause and look back, I cannot quite believe that this person of that time was actually me. Not only have I taken some steps to see who I truly am and what I can be – with your help it was possible to discard many of the patterns that have destroyed, inhibited, restrained, constrained me – drugs and those shackles that have plagued my spirit itself, to name just a few of them.

Thank you for your work and your patience – especially when I sometimes tried to escape and ran into the opposite direction. Thank you for your perseverance, even when I was overcome by self satisfaction and excessive comfort:) Thank you for always sharing your knowledge and insights and helping me gain a better understanding of the larger and smaller contexts.
Briefly put: thank you for guiding me on a journey that makes my life richer, deeper and much more fulfilling. And above it all, thank you for giving me tools that allow me to continue this work also by myself.”

~ Gerhard M

“Anke and Marie Lou are undoubtedly two of the most extraordinary instances of humanity I have ever had the joy to encounter. Their loving presence in this world is a great blessing to all. When I first had the honor of sitting in ceremony with them, I remember experiencing the following revelation: “Wow, this is what is possible for humanity. It is within our potential to become ascended beings while still on Earth.” The two of them possessed such a grace, groundedness, centeredness, and lucidity that they struck me as existing at a level of consciousness not far from that of bodhisattva masters. They exhibited a profound intrinsic authority—the sort that can arise only as a result of venturing deep into the caverns of oneself and one’s reality to confront whatever dragons and unicorns one might find there. “We’ve been to Hell and back together,” Anke once told me.

As I spent more time with Marie Lou and Anke in and out of ceremony, my Love for them continued to expand. They approach their work with a joy, lightness, inner strength, and humility that is akin to fresh water from a mountain stream. They possess a remarkable awareness of their oh-so-human foibles and are able to view their own shadows with tenderness and humor. Someone once told me, “Never trust a shaman who cannot laugh in ceremony.” I came to understand the wisdom in these words via my experiences of Anke and Marie Lou’s pristine balance of reverence and levity. When it is time to focus and ground, they focus and ground. When it is time to laugh, they laugh. When it is time to be radically honest, they are radically honest.

When I think of Anke and Marie Lou, the image that comes to mind is that of two mysterious trickster sorceresses bearing magical healing potions from otherworldly realms. The two of them seem to be manifesting an archetypal Yin-and-Yang-esque partnership, as each of their energies complements and contrasts the other’s in a Sacred Dance of Duality. Anke’s energy is like a compassionate yet sharp-taloned eagle, a red-hot katana ready to slice through vast layers of delusion at a moment’s notice. Marie Lou’s eyes are like windows to the abyss; her energy is that of a shadowy yet playful serpent destined to transcend all cages. Their unforgettable smiles give you the feeling that they see and understand realities you cannot presently imagine. It is no exaggeration to say that my life has been enriched immeasurably as a result of being divinely guided to these powerful enchantresses. I am tremendously grateful to call them my friends, collaborators, teachers, and fellow human beings”

Mindful Family Retreat

Jun 15 – 20 2020

THE EVENT

This unforgettable 5-night retreat gives your family the opportunity to connect, play, learn, and deepen your experience with mindfulness together and in community with other like-minded families.

Please join Elisha and Stefanie Goldstein, renowned clinical psychologists, mindfulness teachers and parents to three boys, for an all-inclusive fun, meaningful and adventure-filled mindfulness and yoga retreat for all kinds of families with children ages 8+ at Imiloa Institute in the stunning Savegre Mountains just outside Dominical, Costa Rica.

This unforgettable 5-night retreat gives your family the opportunity to connect, play, learn and deepen your experience with mindfulness together and in community with other like-minded families. Upon arrival, everything has been taken care of from planning excursions, meals, tending to dietary needs, and curating the most epic mindful family experience. All you need to do is show up with open mind and open heart – we will do the rest.

Today, families are under more pressure and experiencing more stress than ever before. Between the increasing demands of work, academic life, extracurricular activities, peer relationships, family relationships, and the constant growing demands of technology, everyone can be left feeling stressed, anxious, irritable, and disconnected.

This is a unique opportunity to get away from all of those stressors, unplug from the daily busy-ness and connect as a family in an intentional, mindful way while being supported deeply by Stefanie and Elisha Goldstein – parents, psychologists and mindfulness educators and the unparalleled beauty of Costa Rica.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

In this retreat, you and your family will practice gentle yoga and learn age-appropriate mindfulness and meditation practices all coupled with fun activities such as zip lining, stand-up paddle boarding, trips to the beach, and optional surfing.

There will be opportunities to practice as a family and for parents and children to practice separately. Also, it is important to us that we always give back to places we visit so we have arranged a community service project.

During this retreat, you and your family will learn ways to slow down, get connected with yourself and each other in the present moment with greater calm, contentment and peace – planting seeds of mindfulness and compassion together that will grow for years to come. We are here to help make this an experience of a lifetime!

TESTIMONIALS

This retreat was one of the best shared experiences we have ever had as a family. It was the perfect combination of fun, learning, and family bonding time. All of our kids loved it and our 10 year old said that this retreat tied for his favorite vacation with our week at Disneyland/Legoland.

We have been home a few weeks and can already see how much it has helped our family enjoy life more and communicate better about our feelings. Thank you so much Elisha & Stefanie. You have given us an invaluable gift.

Melissa McKay

My husband and I brought all five of our children to Costa Rica just to attend the Mindful Family Retreat. It was an unforgettable week. Not only did we enjoy the type of adventures we love, including playing in the ocean, ziplining, surfing, and paddleboarding, but we had a nurturing and unifying experience as a family.

We took home with us more than just fun memories; we learned things together that will help us to be stronger people and a healthier family. We need help with our kids, and we were provided with valuable help in the form of mindfulness instruction.

The mindfulness was taught through games and play, along with journaling, discussion, and guided meditations. I appreciated that some of the instruction included the whole family, and that sometimes the kids were separated to learn their own experiences while we adults could talk more specifically about the help we needed. I loved the entire thing. And the food . . . !

Laurel Arnold

Our family had a fantastic experience at the retreat. Stefanie and Elisha are wonderful teachers and facilitators – kind, approachable, and down to earth. They share their wisdom from a place of understanding that we’re all parents doing the best we can. The mindfulness teaching felt more like conversations with an incredibly supportive friend than lessons from the experts. We look forward to using the practices and tools from the retreat to continue to grow as a family.

Awaken Your Spirit in Leadership – June 21-27, 2020

IMILOA PRESENTS

Awaken Your Spirit in Leadership

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

 

June 21-27, 2020

THE EVENT

A 5-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 2020: 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
