SOUL is a fiercely feminine word. It speaks to the magical power we have within us, to lovingly and intentionally enhance our lives. When we speak of SOUL, we are connecting to the deeper aspects of who we are. Living a Soul FULL Life therefore becomes, a journey of both acceptance and growth. It is being vulnerable enough with ourselves to honor these intentions with great care.
If this kind of journey speaks to you, if the universe is whispering, “Hey you! Yes, YOU. There is a different way to live your ONE PRECIOUS LIFE”, your path towards a life of purpose, significance, belonging, freedom, balance, and joy is waiting for you here!
JULY 27 – AUGUST 1, 2024
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 a working mother and leadership and lifestyle coach, I am passionate about equipping women with what they need to live their very best lives. Especially when SoulFULL Living feels hard or out of reach.
So, what does it mean to live a SoulFULL Life?
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.
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.
I see you! I am also a woman who has navigated the same types of things you are. Who has felt many of the things you have and at times, still do. I get it which is what inspired me to create this experience. For women like us. For women like you!

Our Carefully Crafted Journey
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
From KNOW, we will wander with compassion and grace into HEAL. We will begin to explore and nurture our unique sense of purpose, significance, and belonging and leave this day with clarity, acceptance, and self-compassion. We will start with a divine waterfall experience that will further illuminate your SoulFULL desires. Using the awareness awakened so far, we will also learn how to begin healing our pain points; courageous work that helps reduces frustrating, repetitive, and burdening patterns that show up in our relationships to ourselves and others.
Day 4 – July 30
From HEAL, our eyes will become more open to SEE. Empowered by the transformative work of the first few days, we will experience a new way of showing up for ourself and others and begin mastering mindsets, tools, and self-care habits that invite greater ease and serenity internally and with all the roles we play and relationships that matter to us. We will also take an excursion to the beach and experience walking a beautiful labyrinth created just for us. We will celebrate our journey so far by playing without abandon in the magical Pacific Ocean!
Day 5 – July 31
From SEE, we will end in the place we all desire—LOVE. We will spend this final full day completely attuned to our authentic selves, relishing in our unique gifts of body, mind and spirit. 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 our newfound community will celebrate the incredible journey we have made in the course of these precious 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. It will be easy to celebrate the life-changing growth you witnessed in yourself and others and the soul-centered connections that will follow you home. This is the first day of the rest of your life. You can’t wait to return home and let your SOUL shine!
Your SoulFULL Life is ready to welcome you, and so are we!
Renée M. Dineen
Renée is an ICF PCC accredited leadership and team 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. To advance her mission, Renée has been the guest on over 20 podcasts and published dozens of articles that have been featured in publications such as Fortune, Financial Times & Elephant Journal. Her anthology 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 designed The SoulFULL Living Retreat for Women which is hosted at the famous Imiloa Institute in Costa Rica.
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 comes into this work from a transformational journey of her own. She is supported by a Masters in Industrial/Organizational Psychology and seasoned coach 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.
She has been married for over 20 years and has a young adult son who just started college and a blossoming teenage daughter. Together as a family, they have turned their passion for travel, 50 countries and counting, into a true family ritual!
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. Renee does 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 life changing…after experiencing a cancer diagnosis and treatment, it was time for me to really look inward and renew the love i have for myself, figure out the type of life I want to live and start taking steps to LIVE IT. This retreat did just that for me. I now look at situations differently, I take time for true self care and I am taking steps to make sure i live a SoulFULL life.
The retreat was a perfect combination of right brain and left brain healing. On left-brain side, it was like a year of therapy in just a few days. On the right-brain side, it was a slow, peaceful time surrounded by the jungle, the animals, the ocean, the waterfall, lovely nourishing food, embodiment, and the more spiritual side of healing.
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 has made it so easy to stay on my transformation journey.
This retreat could not have come at a more perfect time for me after a battle with cancer. I left this retreat feeling a sense of renewal. I have been able to really identify what I truly want out of this life free of judgement from myself and from others. I am realizing that my dreams can become a reality and that I can life a SoulFULL life and can be a better mother, wife, daughter, business owner, community leader and most importantly I can love myself..including the flaws. I can't wait to attend this retreat again and to continue to build upon all I have learned.
Renee is 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 brings to this experience is awe-inspiring.
I truly did not know what to expect when I signed up to attend the SoulFULL Living Retreat. I had trusted in someone that attended previously that described it as life changing. It takes a lot for me to call anything life changing but that is exactly what this was. The setting of Costa Rica is already a great backdrop for this experience, but it was so much more than that. The program was paced appropriately which allowed me patience in my self-exploration during the journey. I left the retreat wanting more and also with friendships from amazing women from all over the world.
