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 – June 9

COMMUNITY

Arrive at Imiloa via a chartered flight landing in the heart of the jungle. Discover the luxury of your accommodations and settle in with chef-prepared snacks and a dinner. Mingle with your community of open-hearted women who also desire connection and authenticity in their relationships. Relax and connect fireside together as details about the week ahead are revealed. Retire to your cozy bed in the jungle.

Day 2 – June 10

KNOW

Begin the journey by taking stock of all that has brought you to this retreat and set 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 relationships.

Day 3 – June 11

HEAL

Using the awareness awakened on Day Two, on Day Three you will learn how to begin healing your pain points; courageous work that helps reduce frustrating, repetitive, and burdening patterns that show up in our relationships to ourselves and others. You will explore and nurture your unique sense of purpose, significance, and belonging. You will leave this day with clarity, acceptance, and self-compassion.

Day 4 – June 12

SEE

Empowered by the transformative work of the past few days, a beach outing is your backdrop for a playful focus on self-care and self-acceptance. Re-envision a version of yourself that is powerful, connected, authentic, and increasingly free from the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that do not serve you or your relationships. Practice bringing your whole self to your relationships. Speak with strength, clarity, and honesty as you define a new way of showing up for yourself and others. You will begin mastering mindsets, tools, and self-care habits that invite ease and serenity.

Day 5 – June 13

LOVE

You’ll spend this final full day completely attuned as your authentic self, relishing in your unique gifts of body, mind and spirit. A morning excursion honors your playful side with a fun-filled adventure. 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. An evening gathering with your newfound community celebrates the incredible journey made in the course of just five days.

Day 6 – June 14

CONNECTION

This part of your SoulFULL Living journey ends by paying tribute to the deeper connections you’ve made to both self and others. Recognize the life-changing growth of each and everyone present, and appreciate the evolution of your heart-centered connections that will continue to serve you long after our retreat concludes.

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

Your Hosts

Renée Dineen

Renée is an ICF PCC accredited executive and life coach, seasoned group facilitator and leadership consultant. Today she runs her own global practice out of California with 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.

Renée is a woman on a mission for healing. 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. 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 Transformation for Women was released in 2021 and is a #1 best seller on Amazon.

In 2015, she founded the Modern Goddess Retreat: An Intimate Experience for Mothers & Daughters. The retreat is hosted multiple times a year in the California wine country. Taking all they have learned and experienced personally, Renée and her team have designed this new retreat to be hosted for the first time at Imiloa for women of all ages who share a desire to live a SoulFULL life!

Renée earned her 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 TedX Speaker, a Hoffman Institute Graduate and seasoned teacher of the Enneagram.

Renée has been married for almost 20 years and has two 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 entire adult life to working with women. She has been an executive in the beauty industry for 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, ballroom dancing, a journal practice, 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 the creator of Soul Truth Wellness, an entrepreneur and the founder of Sol Sisters Nutritious Kitchen, Aleia brings self care full circle with her wellness clients walking them gently down the path of mindful awareness around patterns and behaviors that are not in service of our soul’s journey and help to facilitate truth and courage that nourish our bodies and bring our lives the greatest sense of joy.

As a trained professional dancer, certified essential oil consultant and certified yoga and Pilates teacher, Aleia brings her integral and unique gifts to the retreat through holistic wellness activities and a distinctive session created to unearth our soul’s truth to empower a courageous and truthful journey in this life.

Testimonials

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.
