"I WAS ABLE TO LET GO OF ALL THE LIES AND CONDITIONING AND DISCOVER WHO I REALLY WAS, AND THE FREEDOM IN THAT IS PRICELESS.

HILARY DELIVERS! I'VE NEVER EXPERIENCED THE LEVEL OF TRANSFORMATION IN SUCH A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME; THE COMING BACK TO WHO I WAS CREATED TO BE.

I FEEL YEARS YOUNGER AND MY SPIRIT IS RENEWED! DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND COME TO ONE OF HILARY'S RETREATS."

- TS, PAST RETREAT PARTICIPANT

HERE'S WHAT RETREAT CO-HOST LEIGH-ANN SAYS ABOUT HILARY:

"What truly sets this retreat apart is Hilary’s intuitive understanding of the unique journey each participant is on. As a CEO, I often find myself compartmentalizing emotions and experiences, prioritizing productivity over personal well-being. However, Hilary's compassionate presence and unwavering support created a safe space for vulnerability and authenticity. Through heartfelt conversations and individualized guidance, I felt seen, heard, and deeply understood.

Moreover, Hilary's intuitive and holistic approach to transformation ensured that every aspect of our being was nurtured. From nourishing meals that honored the body to nature excursions that rejuvenated the spirit, every element of the retreat was thoughtfully curated to facilitate growth. As a result, I left feeling not only spiritually enriched but also physically revitalized and emotionally empowered. 

Thanks Hilary! I am so excited to be on this journey with you! You just never know where the adventure will take you."

"I had never been on a retreat before so I had no idea what to expect. The weekend was truly amazing.

It was filled with meditations, journaling, breath work, reiki, and creative opportunities such as coloring and dancing.

It was a peaceful time of quiet reflection. But it was so much more. It was a time to have human connections with wonderful women!

We laughed, we cried, we shared our experiences. Leigh-Ann made us all feel so comfortable. She is an excellent facilitator. When she guides a meditation her voice is so soothing and encouraging. She is light and love!

This retreat changed my life. I met my inner child and Spirit guide and I will never be the same. Thank you Leigh-Ann."

HERE'S WHAT RETREAT CO-HOST Hilary SAYS ABOUT leigh-ann:

"I had the distinct honor and privilege of sharing a sacred space with Leigh-Ann at my CEO Retreat in Cape Cod. Right from the gate I was drawn to her for a whole host of reasons.

Leigh-Ann has the unique ability to light up a room with her authenticity and zest for life. Leigh-Ann is truly a Maverick, a Powerhouse and has accomplished what most wouldn't be courageous enough to attempt---yet all with grace and love. Astute, tenacious, compassionate, a true connector and holder of space, Leigh-Ann is one of the most beautiful humans I've encountered. I became an instant fan and wanted to Velcro on!

The connection was magical and when an opportunity presented itself for us to collaborate on a retreat, I wholeheartedly jumped at the chance! For me, this is just the beginning...."

High-speed Wi-Fi is available across most of the campus, ensuring you stay connected when needed. Safety boxes are provided in all accommodations to secure your personal belongings. We’ll be in the jungle, so we recommend keeping the valuables at home.

I have dietary restrictions. How will these be managed?

Imiloa is a vegan campus, dedicated to providing high-quality, plant-based meals. If you have specific dietary needs or allergies, please inform us at least 30 days before your arrival. Upon arrival, you’ll receive a special wristband to highlight your dietary restrictions, ensuring that Imiloa’s team can serve you appropriately at every meal.

Is the venue accessible?

We’re happy to talk with you to learn more about your specific needs. Please keep in mind that to travel around the campus you will need to navigate well-maintained gravel paths and trails. You will also need to be able to climb some stairs, so unfortunately we cannot recommend the Homecoming Retreat for people with mobility challenges. If you have specific questions or want more details, we’re happy to help. You can send us an email at hilary@hporta.com so we can learn more about your specific needs.

What type of accommodations can I expect?

Daily cleaning is included in the package rate. Every space is crafted to enhance your connection with nature while providing comfort and privacy.

What’s the weather like? Will there be bugs?

Generally in October you can expect sunny mornings with a shower in the late afternoon. We’ll be in the jungle, but the accommodations and gathering spaces are well-maintained and cleaned every day. You will have direct access to the Imiloa Front Desk Team if you require their assistance at any point during your stay. We didn’t notice any mosquitos when we did our site visit in February, and Imiloa provides natural insect repellent, sunscreen, and umbrellas if needed.
