IMILOA PRESENTS

A 5 night retreat where we will gather in sisterhood to embody the essence of our true nature through our sovereign expression and divine individuality.

August 25-30, 2022

About The Retreat

The Woman Be Retreat is a five night experience of this collective we have built together. A collective of sisterhood, safe space and acceptance. One where we do not stop at the outer layer of identity/ego but rather take the invitation to shed whatever stands in the way of embodying and being our true divine essence while in feminine form, so we can begin to manifest and create from our most true and natural state as we reclaim our full sovereign power.

Together we will co-create this experience inviting each woman to bring her own magic in the form of a workshop, class or offering. We will also provide guidance and tools so you will leave the retreat feeling empowered to share your gifts. You will also receive a collection of beautiful photos to share this sovereign expression.

Women are the embodiment of the original elemental forces of nature. We move in harmony and flow with the laws of eternal life and are bound by no thing. Our purpose is to direct this power through form, female form. Come and experience, to share tools and anchor into your being in a beautiful paradise.

Our unique personal perspectives are a representation of the feminine collective. When we shed the layers that are not our truth and step into our divine individuality, we begin to heal not just ourselves but the collect feminine. We magnify this powerful alchemy by gathering and being witnessed in our sovereign expression.

You are welcome. Exactly as you are.

This is an invitation to embrace your expression and the power of your feminine sovereignty, will you answer the call?
