IMILOA PRESENTS

A 5-day immersive retreat designed to help women rediscover their wholeness, reconnect with their feminine roots, and deepen their sense of self-love and radical self-acceptance.

November 6-10, 2022

About The Retreat

Over the course of 5 immersive days, this women-only experience will lay the foundation for you to explore and discover who you really are, while connecting with your inner power.

With daily practices, exciting workshops, nourishing food, and the beautiful energy of the Costa Rican jungle, this retreat is designed to facilitate deep transformation, while paving the way for your journey towards energy, radiance, freedom, empowerment and wholeness.

Throughout our lives we have found ourselves dealing with many challenges. Most of you probably can relate to that.

In those challenging times we felt anxious, deeply unhappy, depressed, disconnected from ourselves and everyone around, incredibly stressed, and unfulfilled. We felt something trivial was missing in our lives.

Those life obstacles brought us on an incredible journey of self-discovery. Luckily, we were there to witness each other’s journey, offer support and guide one another through the tunnel of transformation.

Those times also pushed us to expand our knowledge, implement the tools we knew before and discover the new ones. We learned to get to the level of self love and self acceptance that brought harmony in our lives. We worked extensively with the creative force of sexual energy and mastered a tantric way of living that brought so much joy and happiness.

Now, we can’t wait to share our collection of tools that helped us to get through challenges and learn to live life to the fullest and be the best expression of ourselves.

Wholeness is encoded deep within our cells– it is our natural state of being. Love, abundance, worthiness, care, protection, value, and freedom are readily available inside each and every one of us. By diving deep within ourselves, we will release blockages and uncover and access this beautiful energy we all carry within.

In sacred community, we will engage in yoga, meditation, shamanic breathwork workshops, DNA activation, tantric workshops to explore and enhance your sexuality, art therapy, and radical transparency talks. You will also receive one complimentary private theta healing session and an integration zoom call after the retreat for all participants.

Wholeness is your divine birth right. Claim it now.

I cannot say enough great things about this retreat. I can honestly say it changed my life. I left feeling happier, more connected and more peaceful. I would do it all again in a heartbeat. I am definitely not the same person after the retreat as before – which was the goal! Transformational it truly was. The food was amazing, the activities and participants were amazing and the facilitator Lucy was truly amazing. I witnessed her wisdom, passion and desire to truly help people, which opened my heart and inspired me beyond my wildest dreams!
