Learn the Secrets to Allowing your Nighttime Dreams to do the Heavy Lifting of Making your Wildest Waking Dreams Come True

June 6-11, 2023

About The Retreat

Dream-a-Festing explores a proven formula to support you in creating your dream life. Most self-help-style manifestation techniques instruct you to focus on the outer game, take the physical steps, and lean on your logical, conscious mind to strategize, push, and will your way there. Some of those techniques give a nod to the inner game, but completely overlook the power of dreams to do the lion’s share of the work to three-dimensionalize your heart’s desires.

Dream-a-Festing picks up where other techniques leave off, drawing upon your dreaming mind, aka your subconscious secret superpower to create and sustain what you truly want in life…and then some.

When you Dream-a-fest, you create a bridge from the conscious to the unconscious, human to the spiritual, visible to the invisible for a whole brained and whole-souled experience. As you learn the Dream-a-festing process (and make it a habitual part of your daily routine), you’ll discover that yes, there is footwork, but it’s graceful and joyous compared to trudging through mud with ankle weights, one heavy, messy step at a time.

In other words, Dream-a-festing’s 5-step formula helps you access your vast inner resource of infinite wisdom, guidance, and power, so that instead of having to move mountains, you’ll wake up in the morning to realize while you were sleeping, the mountains moved around you.

Discover the Dream-a-festing 5-step Formula to allow your nocturnal dreams to be rocket fuel for more joy, abundance, and flow in every area of your life. They are:

  1. You are at One with the One
  2. Come to Peace with Duality
  3. Triangulate your Dream Outcome
  4. Fortune Favors Fullness
  5. Five times More Consciousness to access the 5th Dimension of your Dream

Jungle paths connect the 20+ acres at Imiloa, with hand-made stairs and lighting, creating an immersive, easy experience for you and guests.
