Are you following your heart?

Did you know that the heart’s magnetic component is about 5,000 times stronger than the brain’s magnetic field and can be detected several feet away from the body?

One difference between the brain and the heart is that the brain has a section called the amygdala, it is one of the oldest parts of the brain and serves to help us survive. It was very useful in the past to keep us alert and alive from threats like animals, invading armies and harsh weather.

These days it usually keeps us from venturing into the unknown and living our lives as an adventurous dream.

That’s why I recommend following your heart. This is what we did with Imiloa Institute. We jumped into the unknown with our hearts. 

We didn’t know about how to do business in Costa Rica. 

We had never had a hospitality company. 

We’d never done a construction project.

I’d never even held my own retreat.

We simply listened to our hearts and trusted that all would unfold as it should. 

We knew we wanted to create a beautiful space for people to feel at home in their transformation and be able to take that feeling at home feeling with themselves with them anywhere they went when they left.

The Imiloa Institute came from a feeling of finally being at home in my own transformation after years of personal development courses. I realized the power of vulnerable sharing in groups which leads to freedom and feeling at home with ourselves and results in us being a space for others to feel at home.

It’s an energetic chain reaction that is spreading across the globe and all of consciousness.

Heart centered, adventurous courage to love ourselves enough to live our dreams. 

I invite you to follow your heart and come experience feeling at home within yourself at Imiloa. 

I invite you to follow your heart towards adventuring towards your dreams, whatever they may be. 

Much love,

As we enter into a season known for the sniffles, taking extra care of what you put into your body is key. One of the healthiest choices you can make is to fuel your body with as much live, high-vibrational food as possible. 

Everything that comes out of Imiloa’s kitchen is designed to not only feed your body, but also to help you become more connected to nature.
