Are you an entrepreneur, community leader, coach or someone always serving others and under-serving yourself? Then the Live Life Activated retreat is calling your name! Experience a 6 day immersive, transformational week of life-changing activities aligning your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual practices while activating connection and purpose with like-minded entrepreneurs, creators, and leaders who are impacting lives across the world.

AUGUST 16 – 21, 2024

About The Retreat

As leaders and creators, we often put so much burden on ourselves.  The pressure of building a business, creating our own brand, leading others and managing employees while driving impact can lead us to fall out of practice or forget about recharging ourselves.  We often are so focused on supporting others that we overlook our own health which can lead to burnout,  mindless escapes (social media takeovers, Netflix overloads, etc.) or even self-destructive activities leaving us mentally, emotionally and even physically drained and unhealthy.  If this sounds like you then the Live Life Activated retreat is calling.

You will be challenged to connect with yourself at a deeper level while also building lifelong connections.  Lead by world renown facilitators guiding us through a journey that will push you to become more aligned with yourself, allow you to deepen connection to others and leave you with tools to integrate into your life when you return to your daily routine. We do this by focusing all activities and workshops on aligning our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual practice with our mission and goals in life.

What You Will Learn

  • How to fine tune your mind and body to be the healthiest version of yourself
  • The Power of Faith and Intention Setting through non- religious Prayer
  • The power of giving back
  • How to rewire negative emotions and your nervous system to increase clarity, focus and productivity
  • Using your sexual energy to stand more in your power and expression and how that translates into higher fulfillment and productivity in your life and business
  • Communication practices to release your emotions in a healthy manner while reducing stress and anxiety in tense situations
  • Radical authenticity and communication
  • Opening up our emotional aquity and leveraging our emotions to uplevel our life
  • The Power of Curiosity in reaching exponential growth

What You Will Gain

Connection, community, clarity and renewed activation.

Your spirituality will be deepened and emotionally you will feel more connected to your soul which will propel all aspects of life.

You will gain new practices to live a healthier, more fulfilled purpose where you are more motivated to make a positive impact more than ever before.

You will develop life long friendships and lives will be changed forever (Just ask previous participants!)

You will step into your future self.

I'm very honored because this retreat is next level. I'm grateful enough to share that I have been teaching and moving from event to event for so many years now, I've been to 60 of these types of retreats and I can say this one is by far one of the best I have ever been to. The quality of the people, the quality of the workshops, the flow between the program and surrendering to what the group feels like doing is super profound and very beautiful.  Michael is an amazing host and facilitator holding the group together with integrity and a healed masculine energy and here at Imiloa, the service, the food at Imiloa it's all just next level and I'm very grateful to be here. 

- Gregorio Avanzani, Life Architect at Prestine Movement

I was super nervous to come, having it been my first retreat and really had no idea what to expect in coming here but coming here has been one of the most life changing experiences I've ever had. I've learned so much about myself and the things I need to overcome and some of the bullshit stories I've been telling myself over the years that I need to recreate. But I've had so many amazing connections that have been made here. I never could have imagined I would have met so many beautiful spirited entrepreneurial people that are making huge impacts on this earth and to know I will be forever connected to them is one of the most beautiful things I could ever ask for.
