About The Retreat

The SoulFULL Living Retreat is THE PLACE where women like you are seen, celebrated, and supported to develop more authentic connection to self and others, inspiring deep and lasting personal growth and relational change.

As working mothers and certified leadership, life and wellness coaches, we are passionate about equipping women with what they need to live their very best life. Especially when SoulFULL Living feels hard or out of reach.

So, what does it mean to live a SoulFULL Life?

A SoulFULL Human balances doing and being, masculine and feminine, giving and receiving, and work, rest and play.

A SoulFULL Woman empowers herself to live her truth, embraces imperfection, relishes passion, and invites serenity.

A SoulFULL Leader owns her purpose & strengths with confidence and inspires others to do the same.

A SoulFULL Mother nurtures herself unapologetically and raises her children securely.

A SoulFULL Daughter speaks her truth, knows her needs, and accepts her mom’s imperfections.

A SoulFULL Partner gives and receives freely while honoring herself and others.

A SoulFULL Friend finds her people and dares to be known for who she is.

A SoulFULL Changemaker believes in her purpose and pursues her goals and aspirations with confidence, influence and service.

Would you like to know this woman? You already do!

Even if, in this moment, you might resonate more with some of these statements:

  • I am on the verge of burnout.
  • I feel guilty no matter what role I am playing.
  • I say yes when I mean no.
  • I resist help and assistance from others.
  • I have to be perfect.
  • I suffer from self-doubt and comparison.
  • I have lost touch with my body and what it needs.
  • I struggle to identify my purpose.
  • I am uninspired and unfulfilled at work.
  • I worry I am failing my children.
  • I lack passion for my partner.
  • I long to establish relationships that are genuine, secure, and satisfying.

We see you! We too are women who have navigated the same types of things you are. Who have felt many of the things you have and at times, still do. The challenges, drama, and suffering are real! We get it which is what inspired us to create this experience. For women like us. For women like you!

Our Carefully Crafted Journey

In community, here is the journey that awaits you!

Day 1 – July 27


After your private flight transfer from SJO to Imiloa’s landing strip, your journey begins. Take this time to immerse yourself in the space and all that Imiloa has to offer. Exhale, meet your new community, get settled into your luxury accommodations and begin to set your intentions for the week. We will gather for refreshing mocktails, enjoy a beautiful ocean sunset and eat our first of many, delicious 5-star vegan meals. Relax and connect with this newfound community as details about the week ahead are revealed.

Day 2 – July 28


Begin the journey by taking stock of all that has brought you to the retreat and set soul-sourced intentions for the week ahead. You will enter the SoulFULL Living journey by gaining more awareness about yourself and your relationships. Guided in gentle curiosity, you will be invited to get to know your acquired beliefs and patterns of behavior and how these connect to your deepest personal and relational needs. You will begin to reclaim your power and influence in the important roles and relationships that define your being and create meaning in your life.

Day 3 – July 29


Using the awareness awakened on day one and two, on day three you will learn how to begin healing those aspects of your lives that create suffering and seem to require ill-directed effort and energy. This is courageous work that helps reduce frustrating, repetitive and burdening patterns that show up in our relationships to ourselves and others. We’ll cleanse our spirits and bodies through a sacred Blue Clay experience at our private waterfall. Your soul’s desires will come into greater clarity with renewed commitment to follow their call. You will explore and nurture your unique sense of purpose, significance, and belonging and leave this day with greater clarity, acceptance, and compassion.

Day 4 – July 30


Empowered by the transformative work of the past few days, today we head on an Adventure Excursion where we are reminded of how freeing it is to simply be present to the moment that most wants to capture our hearts and souls. We will also be reminded of the power of play and its role in accessing true and sustainable joy and connection. Re-envision a version of yourself that is powerful, connected, authentic, and increasingly free from the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that do not serve the roles you play or your relationships to cherish. Speak with strength, clarity, and honesty as you define a new way of showing up for yourself and others. In the late afternoon you can attend a yoga session, get a massage or enjoy unstructured personal time to explore and reflect poolside.

Day 5 – July 31


You’ll spend this final day completely attuned to your authentic self, relishing in your unique gifts of body, mind and spirit. A beach outing is our backdrop for a refreshed focus on self-care and self-acceptance. An afternoon activity helps you discover new ways to love and be loved. By now, you will have noticed that the slight shifts in how you show up for yourself and others are more congruent with your intentions and your needs. A soul-fueled evening gathering with your newfound community celebrates the incredible journey made in the course of just five days.

Day 6 – August 1


This final morning of your SoulFULL Living journey is an exciting moment to pay tribute to the deeper connections you’ve made to both self and others. Recognize the life-changing growth you witnessed and appreciate the evolution of your soul-centered connections that will continue to serve you long after our retreat concludes. This is the first day of the rest of your life. You can’t wait to return home and let your soul truly shine!

Your SoulFULL Life is ready to welcome you, and so are we!

Renée M. Dineen

Renée Dineen is an entrepreneur, organizational psychologist, ICF certified professional coach, best-selling author, TEDx and motivational speaker, seasoned retreat host, and founder of the Deep Tissue Living Institute, a coaching and consulting platform dedicated to doing the deepest work with those who never thought they could. What drives her above all is the opportunity to reduce human and organizational suffering and equip people to live with more purpose, grace, and joy.

Renée’s coaching practice places an important focus on women and leadership. She believes that the new era of women’s leadership calls us to step more fully into our role as changemakers—requiring greater attention to self-care, a willingness to heal what calls to be healed, and the courage to name and pursue our truest aspirations. Only then can women achieve the freedom, discernment and choiceful balance needed to fully step into their unique purpose and work in this world.

Prior to launching her own coaching & consulting practice, Renée spent over 20 years in global senior leader-ship roles in the high tech and biotech industries, including five years working and living oversees in Switzerland.

As an author, she has published dozens of self-help and leadership articles which have been featured in publications such as Fortune, Financial Times & Elephant Journal. Her new book titled The Art and Truth of Trans-formation for Women was released in 2021 and is a #1 international best seller on Amazon.

In February 2020, Renée took her own story to the TEDx stage. Her talk titled Authentic Inaction: Undoing the Doing in a Do Crazy World is an account of her own trials and tribulations as a “doing addict” and workaholic. Her talk has reached over 600K views and supports her mission to revolutionize the way we work, play & relate to one another and our purpose.

Renée has a Masters in Industrial/Organizational Psychology and is part of the coaching faculty at two highly renowned universities—Stanford in the US and IMD in Lausanne, Switzerland. She is also a Hoffman Institute Graduate and seasoned teacher of the Enneagram.

Renée has been married for 20 years and has two blossoming teenagers. Together as a family, they have turned their passion for travel, 50 countries and counting, into a true family ritual!

Aleia Amend

Aleia has dedicated her adult life to working with women. She has been an executive in the beauty industry for over 25 years using that platform to holistically guide women to seeing and believing their truth with acceptance of self through the lens of their soul.

Along with helping women disrupt their relationship to contrived standards of beauty, she has a tremendous passion for empowering women to choose themselves through the art of self care. Whether it’s a yoga class, dancing, journal practice, meditation, creating a nourishing meal or natural healing through essential oils, Aleia’s empathic connection and support for women is felt before you even meet her!

As an entrepreneur, the creator of Soul Truth Wellness, a Certified Health and Life Coach and the founder of Sol Sisters Nutritious Kitchen, Aleia brings internal knowing through self discovery and care full circle with her wellness clients. She walks them gently down the path of mindful awareness around patterns and behaviors that are not in service of their soul’s journey. This facilitates truth and courage that nourishes their bodies and inspires true joy.

As a Certified Health and Life Coach, trained professional dancer, certified essential oil consultant and certified yoga and Pilates teacher, Aleia brings her intuitive and unique gifts to the retreat. Through specially de-signed sessions to unearth what is no longer serving your souls journey to intuitive and distinctive wellness practices created to strengthen our soul’s truth and empower a courageous and truthful journey in this life.


This retreat inspires a metamorphosis from the inside out, no matter where you are on that journey. If you are in a stage of forming a cocoon, this retreat allows you to build a safe and nourishing time to grow and heal. If you are emerging from your cocoon, this retreat gives you courage to un-limit yourself and break free little by little or at once. And finally, when you are ready to spread your wings to discover the beauty of the unknown, the connections you make with these women give you the courage and friendship you need to manifest what your heart most desires!

I found a new tribe — one free of judgment and disapproval because I think differently. I also discovered that perhaps God has a plan to use me in other’s lives for good, and that was one of many other, unexpected gifts!

This retreat is a beautiful way to check in with yourself and courageously explore all the different areas of your life and relationships that you want to deepen and make even better. Aleia and Renee both do a fabulous job with guiding conversations and asking those questions that really make you think. And the destination is like no other! The staff go above and beyond to truly care for you while you do this work.

This retreat was an unexpected gift in reconnecting with my inner child and healing wounds I had ignored for years. I was surrounded by women willing to be vulnerable and raw and in turn, we found the strength to lift ourselves and each other up, like a mirror reflecting light. It was a retreat that put me in a place of wonder and awe, enriched by the magic of the environment and the chance to marvel and celebrate our power.

The SoulFULL Living retreat was meant as a gift for my daughter’s high school graduation. Little did I know that it was a gift for myself as well. In a short period, I was able to find corners of my soul I have ignored and left undusted for decades. Finding them, confronting the void, and filling in the cracks allowed me to start the healing process. I came back from the trip feeling uplifted and supported, buoyed by an unexpected sisterhood and the enriched relationship I have with my daughter. There are still spaces in my soul that need attention, and the work will be ongoing, but I found the light switch and it’s not as scary to look at what’s there without being scared of what I might find. This retreat was the light I needed to live my very best life.

I came into the retreat without any concrete expectations, I just knew that I would come home with something valuable. I knew that something special was going to be there just waiting to be discovered. I found that and so much more! I felt profound healing of my mother-wound. I did a thorough check-in with myself around how I give and receive love, with whom do I withhold it from and with whom do I give it generously. Most importantly, why. Lastly I found what it feels to be truly safe, protected and loved. Those are just some of the initial gifts I took with me. I know as I continue to do the work, more gifts will follow and with the post-retreat support offered, Renée and Aleia have made it so easy to stay on my transformation journey.

This retreat gave me an opportunity to allow things to bubble up to the surface that I was not necessarily expecting. It felt like I was experiencing true magic. I started the retreat with one mindset and came away with so much more. Be ready to be OPEN to receiving the information that your inner self wants you to focus on! It truly is life-changing!

Renée and Aleia are gifted at creating a safe space to be vulnerable and allow your authentic self to step into the light. This retreat was the most peaceful, safe, spiritual and freeing experience I’ve ever had. I was able to shut out all the noise of the real world and take an intimate look inwards. This is the best gift any woman can give to herself. Say YES to this retreat! You simply won’t regret it.

The depth of heart and mastery that Renee and Aleia bring to this experience is awe-inspiring.

My relationships will not be the same afterwards. This experience has the potential to shift and make more peaceful, joyous and mutually enriching, every relationship I have with the women in my circle of life.

Thanks to Renee’s outstanding ability, the outcome for me is that she cracked my life as an adult. I will be grateful to her for my entire life.

There was a perfect amount of intensity and levity. I came away with stronger relationships, a sense of relief, a better understanding of my pathway forward, fond memories, new friends and new intentions. I think all women should do this work. It would do wonders for our families as society in large.

I still feel the very positive vibes of the week we spent together. The impact it has had on me, both in my private and my professional life, is tremendous. I feel much more ‘in balance’ (heart, body & mind), to live life again to the fullest. I am more grateful for the life I have lived and the people I have loved so far. Many thanks for all your valuable insights and feedback.

Bali Village is perched 1200 feet about the Pacific Ocean, on a ridge line of flora, fauna and wildlife every direction you look. These 5 accommodations are 160-200 year old homes imported from Bali. Each with their own en suite bathrooms, the homes bring you back and create a self space for rejuvenation and transformation.


200 Year Old Homes from Bali. Imported from the Java Islands, these homes boast outdoor showers, full kitchen access, surreal vista views to the Pacific, their own salt water plunge pools and hand-carved art that is as old as the houses.


Perched on the edge of the cliff, at the furthest end of the property, sits a 170 year old home from the Java Islands we call Jogolo. Complete with a writer’s desk, outdoor Balinese shower, hand-carved architecture that will transport you to another land and time, Jogolo is teeming with history and comfort. Your cold plunge pool is adjacent to a warm bath, both outdoor. Full kitchen, too.

Six Buckminster Fuller inspired Geodesic River Domes, among the best made in the world and partially powered by solar energy, sit perched on the edge of our private river with the fresh, flowing water feeding up to the domes. Experience the soothing sounds of relaxing and sleeping next to flowing water. Amazing!


The House of Masters, located in the center of the property, is a 2,000 square foot Balinese structure hanging 100 feet in the Jungle canopy. Adjacent are restrooms and a yoga storage room for mats, blocks and more. The space can be converted for any type of retreat, workshop or dance party.


A sprawling 3,000 square foot space that is the “Heart of Imiloa,” our social space features loungy, multicultural inspired furnishings, couches, and 5 imported tables from Bali, all under a Polynesian style roof.


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