The Retreat

Do you remember the feeling you had as you stepped into your role as a leader?

Saying yes to that purpose was a risk, a leap, and an investment in your future. But look at yourself now.

You’re standing at the peak, you’ve worked hard for your success and now you’re probably wondering, “what’s next?”

Being your business’s most important asset requires you to invest in yourself.

And now, to go higher, you have to dig deeper. Reconnect to your purpose, your authenticity, and the powerful leader within.

The best and most successful leaders are not those who mold themselves into the leaders they think they should be, but the ones know themselves deeply and use their authentic strengths every day.

The Scaling Your Mindset to Scale Your Business Leadership Summit is more than a business retreat.

It is a holistic and transformative experience designed with a sole purpose: granting you time and space to invest in yourself, allowing you to reconnect with the powerful, authentic leader you are born to be. The coaches will use self-discovery and visioning as  tools for business growth – digging deep to scale higher.

You are being called to join a cohort of like-minded business leaders and spend five days in the jungle of Costa Rica – disconnecting from your ‘normal’ to rediscover your “why” and access true freedom.

Will you allow yourself to access your most authentic self, and lead from that place?

You Will Gain


Shed the patterns that block you and achieve powerful clarity of your unique purpose and the steps to return to that purpose. Lay claim to your authentic vision and voice. Communicate from this place: calm, centered, and powerfully aligned with the future you truly desire and deserve.


Unplug yourself from the constant barrage of emails, texts, tasks, and expectations. Reconnect to a rhythm long forgotten: breathe, eat, swim, stretch, and play free from inhibitions. Grant yourself the space and time to shed the masks worn at work and in life, and reveal yourself in a space specifically held for you.


We’ll use yoga, breathwork, chef-prepared vegan cuisine, bodywork and play to lay the foundation for a week of growth and discovery. With these in place, you will be prepared for deep, transformative coaching sessions alongside a support system of peers designed to unlock barriers professionally, psychologically, and emotionally. Discover a holistic vision of success and stand tall as a lithe, authentic warrior of a leader.


Be enveloped in a fully supportive, inspiring community where you’re completely seen and cared for. Connect on a deeper level with other leaders who have experienced the same pains and yearn for the same fulfillment as you. Step into the oasis and uncover the true meaning of co-elevation alongside the abundance of nature.

Freedom, Clarity and life-changing growth. Sound like just what you’re yearning for?

We are proud to host the Scaling Your Mindset Leadership Summit for a second year at the Imiloa Institute in Costa Rica.

Arrive at Imiloa via a chartered flight landing in the heart of the jungle. Discover the barefoot luxury of your accommodations and settle in with chef-prepared snacks and a dinner with your new cohort. Begin the journey by taking stock of all that has brought you to this summit, who is standing here with you, and set intentions for the week ahead. End the night by mingling fireside together or retire to your cozy bed in the jungle.


Begin to learn the tools of transformation with a facilitator-led yoga session each morning. Stretch, breathe, and meditate as you shed the armor of daily life. You will enter the journey to authentic leadership by gaining full awareness of yourself: the habits, patterns, and self-created obstacles that impede your progress, and how to accept and work through them. Connect with the group, with nature, and with yourself in an indigenous Costa Rican cacao ceremony at sunset.


Using the awareness awakened on Day Two, on Day Three you will learn how to break free from frustrating, repetitive, and burdening patterns. In business, relationships, and daily life, re-envision a version of yourself that is powerful, connected, and authentic. Then, commit wholeheartedly to that self.


Visualize your future, empowered by the transformative work of the past several days. Erase boundaries constructed between business and authentic selves, and learn to bring your whole self to your work: in vision, purpose, path, and relationships. Speak with strength, clarity, and honesty as you chart a path to your vision, and a plan for the coming year. You will leave this day with clarity around your own vision of what it is you truly “want to do”in your life and business.


You’ll spend this final full day completely attuned as your authentic self, discovering your untethered inner strength in your choice of yoga sessions, surfing excursions, massages or body treatments, or simply unstructured personal time to explore and reflect poolside on the exquisite retreat grounds. In the evening, our whole group will journey to a nearby beach town for dinner. As the sun sets, connect with your newfound community and celebrate the incredible journey made in the course of just one week.


This part of your journey to authentic leadership ends by honoring the connections you’ve made and the commitments you’ve created. Stand at your personal summit as the authentic leader you are born to be, and look across to see those standing with you. Recognize the hard work and life-changing growth of each and every leader present, and commit to yourself and each other to embark on a new beginning as these effective and fully-conscious leaders upon returning home.

Are you ready to invest in your business’ most valuable asset, yourself?

Each room is equipped with 850 thread count bedding for maximum comfort, high-speed internet, and clean drinking water derived from our artesian well.

Disconnect for five days in barefoot luxury, and discover the changes that will ripple into your life and business for years to come.

Are you ready to scale the summit?


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 – read the fine print of your credit card company to find out more. 

We also highly recommend that the travel insurance include health/medical. Keep in mind that the Imiloa Institute is in a remote location. 

From the U.S. State Department website:

Medical Evacuation Insurance

  • Pays for medical care and emergency transportation.
  • If you are traveling to a remote destination or to a place where care is not likely to be up to U.S. standards, consider buying medical evacuation insurance. 
  • It can be purchased separately or as part of your travel health insurance policy.


Travel Health Insurance

  • Pays for emergency and/or routine medical services overseas.
  • If you have health insurance in the United States, find out if it covers emergencies that happen abroad. More information is available on our page about your health abroad.
  • If your health insurance coverage is not adequate, consider buying a short-term supplemental policy. Look for a policy that will make payments to hospitals directly.

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 of and willing for this before purchasing your ticket.

Can I bring my partner, spouse, friend? Can I bring my co-founder or team?

The summit is specifically designed for individuals seeking to deepen their purpose and leadership qualities in business and life. We have hosted couples and close friends before; we recommend both those considering it review all information about the summit individually and ensure the desire to attend is mutual and conscious of the deep personal nature of the work. This means fully participating as an individual business leader during Summit programming.

If you have questions or would like to know more, the coaches would love to connect. Please reach out here.

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

If you cancel your participation on or before September 15th, 2020, you will receive a 90% refund of your deposit to date. 

After September 15th, 2020, tickets are non-refundable, unless the retreat is cancelled for reasons beyond the organizers’ control. It is recommended to purchase travel insurance.

Tickets may be transferred, provided the potential attendee is qualified and approved by the organizing coaches to attend.

Is there a payment plan?

Absolutely! You can choose a payment plan for any ticket when you checkout. You will be asked to put down a 20% deposit, and then split the remaining balance into payments through December 2020. Your entire ticket must be paid in full by December 31, 2020. Note there is a 4% fee for credit card transactions.

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

We would love to talk with you more about the summit. You may contact [email protected] to be connected with all three Summit coaches. Please make sure you have filled out the Summit Application before reaching out.

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

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!

Imiloa October Update


Every month we will be bringing you updates on how the Imiloa Institute is thriving. To get our monthly newsletter, sign up at the bottom of the page.


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,
