Experience deep healing and inner transformation via sacred plant ceremonies, rainforest immersion, and Shamanic adventures on this 5 night retreat in tropical paradise.

April 20-25, 2023

About The Retreat

By diving deeply into the mystical methods and traditions of shamanic healing,
we will rekindle our connection to Mother Earth, each other, and ourselves. Using ancient healing methods including sacred plant ceremonies, forest bathing, meditation, breathwork, and fun-filled adventures, we will reignite the inner fire that fuels passion and gives deep meaning to our lives. If you are a seeker of deep mystical experiences and reconnection this is the retreat for you!

Sacred Path’s mission is to revive ancient mystical and shamanic traditions in order to achieve profound inner healing and deep reconnection with ourselves, each other, and Mother Earth. On this 5 night retreat immersed in the beauty and vibrancy of the Imiloa Institute, we will dive deeply into ancient practices to experience mystical states and deep inner healing. You will be elevated, transformed, and renewed.

Join us in tropical paradise as we reconnect deeply with ourselves and Mother Earth through experiential adventures including blue clay ceremony at the base of a sacred jungle waterfall, grounding cacao ceremony, rainforest immersion hikes, sunset celebration ceremonies, and immersing ourselves fully into the intense beauty and healing energies of The Imiloa Institute. We will explore and experience multiple shamanic practices to activate and sustain elevated states of being.

By diving deeply into our consciousness with the aid of sacred medicine we will identify and remove blocks that keep us from realizing our dreams and highest potentials. This Sacred Path Retreat will include two sacred plant ceremonies (introductory & advanced) and group integration sessions to “lock in” the benefits leading to true reconnection, life elevation, and transformation.

The Sacred Path beckons. Will you answer the call and join us to break through barriers and limiting beliefs to elevate your life to levels beyond your wildest imagination? We look forward to you joining us on The Sacred Path.

I experienced rebirth during The Sacred Path retreat due to the magic of the medicine and Andy and his crew’s expert guidance. They created a safe cocoon for healing and self discovery within the beauty of the rainforest. My journey continues and I’m so grateful for my time with Andy at Imiloa!

- Samantha D.

Andy was my guide during this magical experience and I am beyond humbled and grateful for his expertise, kindness, and humble nature.

- Zoila

I have never had such a profound and transformational experience as I did with Andy leading and guiding me through a medicine journey. He truly embodies empathy, reconnection, wisdom, patience, and above all, love. From the first phone call with Andy, to our Sacred Path Retreat, he gently guided me through my transformation  with such wisdom about the medicine as well as a listening ear for integrative experiences. I would consider Andy in the top 5 most important people in my life for the experiences he guided me through. Truly thankful and forever inspired. 

- Allyson B.

Andy is phenomenal at what he does. I just spent 5 days in the jungle of Costa Rica with him and 15 strangers and 2 other facilitators on the Sacred Path Retreat in September of 2022. It was by far the best 5 days of my life.  It was a dopamine orgasm of everything wonderful!
The people, the connections, the sites, the journeys, the place… and THE FOOD! And Andy facilitated it all. He picked the place, the people, and he made Magic happen. Andy has a way about him that leaves you at peace just by his presence. And if you’re an empath you know you can see and feel energies and Andy’s energy is one that will stop you in your tracks. he’s the real deal. I plan to continue journeying and only will I in a safe, secure, and real setting with real and trustworthy guides. Therefore Andy is the man and Sacred Path is the retreat experience for me. Until the next time!

Imiloa has gotten clear on its core client – it is educators and impact catalysts. I am so proud of Andy Sudbrock and his Sacred Path Retreat. There are men and women working with medicine in the world (most) who are charlatans and full of spiritual bypass. Then there is Andy – full of integrity, commitment, care, and proactive in his assessment of each participant. I may not be involved with the day to day “every little detail” of each one of our upcoming 80 educators and impact catalysts, but I know enough about each to assess their integrity and commitment. Andy is among the best. I am proud of our Imiloa team and of the Sacred Path Retreat team who made a magical six day retreat happen.
