Why Imiloa is the Perfect Place for a Digital Detox

Why Imiloa is the Perfect Place for a Digital Detox

When we think of a digital detox we assume, “What am I going to miss?” when in fact we ought to ask “What can we gain?”

It’s reported that the time we consume on our phones consists of 30-second bursts. This suggests that what we are doing is an automatic, habitual type of behavior. If we stopped to examine how much of our lives are truly spent on mindless scrolling, the reality can be quite alarming. 

There’s no denying that technology is only going to advance with time. But as we find ourselves at a critical moment in time, we’re beginning to witness some of the negative side effects that come with hours of screen time. Think: increased anxiety and stress, insomnia, depression, wasted time and overall, missed opportunities to truly connect with others. 

It’s almost as if we are stuck in a catch-22; a conundrum of some sort. In a way, we are more connected than ever, yet why do so many of us feel so disconnected? 

This need for space and time spent away from our screens is dire. With our “smartphone addictions” forming at an all-time high, health experts are deeming this the year of the “tech diet.” This trend of digital detox experiences is on the rise as more modern travelers are seeking opportunities to go offline. 

Pioneering this innovative concept to “disconnect to reconnect” is at the center of Imiloa. It’s at the “Heart” (where we dine, chill and create) of this 5-star Institute where zero internet is available. It encourages guests to interact, connect, and engage in their present surroundings (which are extraordinary, pre-historic jungle trees and animals). 

The space is designed to honor the indigenous Costa Ricans that came before us while incorporating Balinese culture. It’s a multi-use, dining, lounge, and relaxation area, ideal for group and individual meditation and rejuvenation. It’s not a particularly challenging space but it’s design challenges guests to be intimate with themselves, and each other. It causes some discomfort, but once a few nights have passed, the real reward and connection is from the very art of the disconnect.

Disconnection with ourselves means we can’t listen to our inner guidance system. We hand over our personal power, including to our technology. We divert from real human connection, from the healing powers of nature, and most importantly, from ourselves. Imiloa has dedicated itself to being a pathway for people to find their way back home to themselves. The property is a catalyst for this very simple appeal. 

One of the Founding Family members from Imiloa Institute, Eric Grotefeld, a wildly successful investor, entrepreneur and activist in the area of reducing our interaction with technology, shares that he checks his phone only once a week. It was this concept of limiting screen time that inspired Eric and the Imiloa team to create the environment in “Heart.”  

Eric says that “Imiloa is a unique place that presents guests a gift of newfound freedom: time and space spent in nature.” It is this belief that as humans, our first true love is mother earth. It’s why the aesthetics at Imiloa are characterized by the surrounding Costa Rican Savegre Mountains. We chose intentionally. 

There’s an ambiance throughout Imiloa that makes room for guests to experience an immediate connection to nature, without the itch to check-in online. Imiloa provides a safe place to open up, dig deep, and self reflect while practicing intention setting, engaging more, and learning to be fully present. 

The result is not only a renewed sense of awe and freedom in life, but it is also that many of our guests come back and see us two and three times a year for various retreats. It’s as much about the co-attendees, the masters themselves and the nature and structure of Imiloa that make people want to come back again and again. 

Giving yourself a break from digital communication is proven to bring significant benefits, both mentally and emotionally. Our goal is to provide a space where guests can free themselves from the noise and “clutter” of the digital world and return to a more mindful and balanced lifestyle, recharged.

A NOTE FROM OUR CO-FOUNDER

 

“Jake, this is it, this is where I was when I had the vision, it was never Indonesia, it was here in Costa Rica.” 

I can remember that day so clearly: I was in the pool with Jake at the Bali Master house, one of our 200 year old homes imported from Bali on the Imiloa Institute Campus,  and it hit me.

The rainy season of 2018 was heavier than usual, and it just so happened to be when we decided to start construction at Imiloa. Six bungalows down to our waterfall, six Geodesic Domes imported from Warsaw, Poland. A social space, a remodel and a dream that human beings would come here and hang their hat for a while.

Imiloa was being birthed in front of our eyes and nothing and no one seemed to be able to stop it.

Fast forward 14 months later, an impossible construction project built, and a dream well on it’s way to being realized. It was spoken and it was now beyond our hands. The Hawaiian word “Imiloa”, Jake has told me, translates to: “creativity expressed through the sense of wonder and imagination.” More than a name, it’s a way of life, and it was truly taking place in this magical land of Costa Rica.

My personal journey has been of growth at Imiloa. What I thought would be a place to heal others and provide them with a transformative journey has turned into a healing sanctuary for me, for every team member I hire and for all those who visit.

Imiloa has taught me about removing my mental and spiritual limitations. It has reminded me, as it has for so many, the power we have as creators. I’m understanding and learning about the perfect in everything as it is.

The land is so magical and the power we have as humans in it is incomprehensible, indescribable. Waking up to the sounds of nature, connecting to the animal kingdom and walking barefoot in this land has brought my inner awareness to another level. It truly shows you what needs to be addressed within, it challenges you in ways I never imagined, very subtle yet profound.

And what about my realization in the 200 year old home from Bali? Well, you see, a year prior, I thought I was moving to Bali. I was living in Toronto at the time, with strong visions of a cliffside retreat center, with old homes and pools and people from around the world coming to visit. I impulsively bought a ticket to Bali and stayed for two weeks. I didn’t find what I envisioned. It’s because it wasn’t meant to be.

A few months later, Jake and Nadav’s assistant found me in Toronto. And the cliffside views over the ocean and the world showing up at our front door, complete with the 200 year old Indonesian homes, found me, too.

Imiloa has been a place for my own personal transformation. The seed is well planted so that this place can show up as a beacon of light in the lives of so many. So that, just maybe, they can go out and touch families, communities, and cultures they return to after their time at Imiloa has come to a close.

Aho.

UNA CARTA DE NUESTRO COFUNDADOR EN ESPANOL

Puedo recordar el día tan claramente: estaba en la piscina con Jake en la casa principal de Bali (una de nuestras casas de 200 años de Bali en el campus de Imiloa) y me golpeó,

“Jake, esto es, aquí es donde estaba cuando tuve la visión, nunca fue Indonesia, fue aquí en Costa Rica”.

La temporada de lluvias de 2018 fue más intensa de lo habitual, y resultó ser cuando decidimos comenzar la construcción en Imiloa. Seis bungalows hasta nuestra cascada, seis cúpulas geodésicas importadas de Varsovia, Polonia.

Imiloa estaba naciendo frente a nuestros ojos y nada ni nadie parecía ser capaz de detenerlo. Avance rápido 14 meses después, se construyó un proyecto de construcción imposible, y un sueño bien en camino de hacerse realidad. Se habló y ahora estaba más allá de nuestras manos. La palabra hawaiana “Imiloa”, me ha dicho Jake, se traduce como: “creatividad expresada a través del sentido de la maravilla y la imaginación”. Más que un nombre, es una forma de vida, y realmente estaba teniendo lugar en esta tierra mágica de Costa Rica

Mi viaje personal ha sido de crecimiento en Imiloa. Lo que pensé que sería un lugar para sanar a otros y proporcionarles un viaje transformador se ha convertido en un santuario de curación para mí, para cada miembro del equipo que contrato y para todos los que visitan.

Imiloa me ha enseñado a eliminar mis limitaciones mentales y espirituales. Me ha recordado, como lo ha hecho para muchos, el poder que tenemos como creadores. Estoy entendiendo y aprendiendo sobre lo perfecto en todo como es.

La tierra es tan mágica y el poder que tenemos como humanos en él es incomprensible, indescriptible. Despertar con los sonidos de la naturaleza, conectarme con el reino animal y caminar descalzo en esta tierra ha llevado mi conciencia interior a otro nivel. Realmente te muestra lo que hay que abordar, te desafía de formas que nunca imaginé, muy sutiles pero profundas.

¿Y qué hay de mi realización en la casa de 200 años de Bali? Bueno, ya ves, un año antes, pensé que me mudaría a Bali. En ese momento vivía en Toronto, con fuertes visiones de un centro de retiro junto al acantilado, con casas y piscinas antiguas y personas de todo el mundo que venían a visitarme. Impulsivamente compré un boleto a Bali y me quedé por dos semanas. No encontré lo que imaginé. Es porque no estaba destinado a ser.

Unos meses después, el asistente de Jake y Nadav me encontró en Toronto. Y las vistas del acantilado sobre el océano y el mundo que aparecen en nuestra puerta principal, completa con las casas indonesias de 200 años, también me encontraron.

Imiloa ha sido un lugar para mi propia transformación personal. La semilla está bien plantada para que este lugar pueda aparecer como un faro de luz en la vida de muchos. Para que, tal vez, puedan salir y tocar familias, comunidades y culturas a las que regresan después de que su tiempo en Imiloa haya llegado a su fin.

Aho.

ISTA Level 2 – Nov 26-Dec 02, 2019

THE EVENT

SSSEx begins its work once the decision is made that this is the way we actually want to live and not just a peak experience on a workshop. Level 2 guides the participant through a series of self – initiations that say goodbye to old patterns of relating and anchor the identity in the deep self that is already free, inherently loving and dynamically creative in the world.

This week provides the teachings and experiences we should have had around our spirituality, our relationship with the transpersonal and its integration with the personal and universal. This provides us with the opportunity to take initiation – to shift our identity into the soul and become the source of our own life, love and empowered expression in the world. Its symbol is the offering up of the heart. Once the life is ‘given up’ or ‘taken over’ by this deeper part of ourselves then we are ready for the greater mysteries – the identification with the universal life of our cosmos and planet. The self becomes a source of inflowing current to our surroundings enabling others to awaken, initiate and transform. We become a creative force in our environment.

The Level 2 training deepens the experience of level 1, allows for more hands on practice with some of the tools and techniques taught and provides an alchemical container for transformation through group practice, ritual and meditation.

YOUR MASTERS

Carmina & Quddus

Carmina and Quddus share 32 years of combined TV experience interviewing some of the most influential stars in the world. Their experiences led them to a sobering realization: most people—no matter their background, age, or status—struggle with some degree of anxiety and perfectionism when it’s time to hit the “record” button.

This led Carmina and Quddus on a 10-year exploration of human potential—a journey that included falling in love with each other. They’ve worked with self-development leaders to make Camera Ready a sustainable solution for more change-makers to find peace and freedom to be themselves on camera.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

✨ The Shamanic Initiation

 

Its core is death and rebirth. This overcomes the fear of death in the base chakra and also sets the shaman apart from the tribe in order to serve the tribe in a special way. It is an essential component to the integration of sexual and spiritual worlds because it results in the transcendence of ego and the dedication of ones awakened powers to the collective. The result is Power.

✨ The Sexual Initiation 

 

The rituals in Level 1 awaken a deeper relationship with our sexual energies. In Level 2 we explore the unification of our masculine and feminine, conscious penetration and sacred union. The result is Love.

✨ The Spiritual Initiation 

 

Meditation training and essential identity inquiry open us into our primordial awareness and provide a taste of sunyata or the void experience. An invocatory temple combined with a personal vision quest where each individual has an opportunity for deeper levels of their being to be contacted, honoured and integrated. The result is Presence.

This is an individual process that happens in a group environment and a level of ability to be self responsible is needed to navigate the spiritual sexual shamanic space. ISTA is a mystery school and approaches trauma from the shamanic perspective of connecting with the body and soul. We recommend that if there is known deep seated trauma, individuals seek one on one sessions and get the ok from their therapist before entering the group process. 

Three highly skilled ISTA Lead faculty will teach, share, inspire, guide and bring light to the darkness in a serene and private retreat location:

Level 2 SSSin is not so much a training that provides tools and techniques but an experience that transforms the self working with those tools and techniques. It is a calling forth of the love, power and presence in the essential divinity of each person. This is the source of the healing power of the spiritual, sexual shaman and it is what forms the core of the unique gift each of us has to offer the world.

All the retreats include 3 delicious, healthy meals per day. Vegetarian and vegan options are included. Please let us know if you have special needs.

YOUR VENUE

We offer a variety of accommodations totalling 17 double occupancy suites (sleeps 34), and a Staff and Master’s Executive Suite (sleeps 5).

“The Real You. For years I would listen to this video and cry. I couldn’t really put my finger on as to why. -I meditated every day hoping to calm my “monkey mind” To be able to think more clearly and detach from that voice in your head which is not the real you. (reptilian brain) However, no matter how much you calm your mind…you are STILL in your head (just a calmer more quite head!!!) and disconnected from your heart/soul/true-self. Sounds hippie woo-woo, but it’s fucking true.

♥️You decide from the mind and choose from the heart♥️ This is how I have decided to live my life from now on. Connecting with my true self for every single decision I make. My true-self had been pushed down from years of abuse, trauma, toxic thought patterns, and living in my head. I choose to live my life with ease, grace, and flow. No more hustle. No more should’s, have to’s, or struggle. Surrendered manifestation.

✨Depression is simply a lack of self-love. Anger turned inward. When your soul calls, and you don’t answer…When your heart is cut off, and you live in your head. When you do not live your authentic true self. I am not a puppet that life pushes around.

Wild Leadership Training has changed my life forever. Thank you Juan Pablo Barahona, Regan Anne Hillyer. I see you. I love you. I am eternally greatful.🦋”

…and ready to experience an expanded sense of possibility, freedom and empowerment, both in your personal and professional life, we invite you to imagine a new possibility with us:

Imagine you’ve just stepped into a luxurious, five-star, barefoot resort in the jungles of Costa Rica. You’re greeted by a warm and welcoming host who takes your heavy bags for you, and you immediately feel relaxed and present. You hear the soothing sound of a private waterfall in the distance… or is it the wild river running beneath your geodesic dome home in the forest… or the Infinity Pool overlooking the ocean?

Everywhere you turn, amongst the astounding architecture and vibrant views, you see a fellow badass adventurer greeting you with a bright smile and a big hug (or a high five if you prefer, this is your imagination after all)…
So many new faces… streams of enlivening conversation fill the space.
Voices of inspired leaders fired up to share their gifts.

Perhaps you feel shy, but everyone seems familiar and friendly, like kindred spirits or long lost friends. Somehow you feel a surreal sense of belonging, though no idea what’s coming next.

Sumptuous smells of organic gourmet cuisine waft through the air… the feast is nearly ready. The energy of excitement is palpable. The tribe is gathering.

You’ve arrived. Are you ready to step into a new possibility?

My primary focus is to be of service. Aside from music part of my life’s work is to support individuals, organizations and causes that are in service to awakening planetary consciousness and aligning with what I call the “True Earth” narrative.

I support high achievers, leaders, artists, visionaries, change makers, & entrepreneurs in creating lasting shifts in their personal and professional development so they can make a greater impact in the world, while staying balanced; in integrity with spirit and the earth honoring narrative. I have over 10+ years guiding others in their healing journey, production experience, consulting on projects and building movements.
