"I absolutely loved the Shine retreat I attended!! The environment was so supportive of the work I was there to do. The generosity and grace of the leadership and support and the camaraderie of the participants created exactly what I needed to grow. I'm still feeling the effects of being there. I notice a shift in the way I see myself and the way I see the world. I feel more peaceful and more grounded and solid. I'm getting more clarity about my vision and what is calling to me. I'm full of gratitude!"


Plant Based Meals by Chef Pedro Pradhu

Pedro speaks about creating “magic” in the food he and the team prepare. At 31, Pedro was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He began healing the tumor with ayurvedic medicine and plant-based nutrition, the same food he now serves at Imiloa. Throughout his journey, Chef Pedro started to witness how powerful and healing ‘alive foods’ are, allowing him a better quality, healthier life.
At Imiloa, meals are prepared with love, imagination and the belief that eating high-vibration, nutritionally-balanced food allows one to connect deeper with nature and to the world around us in a more conscious way, and is a pathway to caring about yourself, others and the land around you.

More About Jaime &
The Shine Retreat Leaders

Jaime Myers:

My greatest joy is engaging in expansive experiences and inquiry that free the spirit and give new life to the soul.  My super power and art form is creating safe spaces that bring together necessary ingredients for magic and deep transformation.

For the last 27 years, I've been a student and leader of transformational work and continue to learn what I teach. I believe in sharing from the heart, having a good laugh and leading through the art of storytelling.   

At age 21 I was introduced to the world of transformation and have been fully immersed ever since.  I've had the honor of being a staff member and coach for Landmark Education Corporation and was a Senior Workshop Leader, Trainer and Program Designer for PAX Programs/Alison Armstrong for 11 years.  

With a vision to empower women to honor themselves, discover and align with their personal truth and lead joyful, soul-fueled lives, I founded Shine Life Design in 2006 and offer retreats, coaching, tele-classes and a community membership.  

Most recently, I've added Byron Katie's, The Work, a powerful process for transforming stressful and painful beliefs, to my tool kit and am beginning Equus training in the fall.

Having led over 150 live weekend courses and worked with thousands of people in various structures for personal growth, I've gained a tremendous love and understanding for what it is to be human and the shifts in perspective that set us free.  


"My favorite part of the retreat was um, ALL of it. Our dear gentle leader, Jaime, wove each session together in a way that wasn't preachy, just perfect. I highly recommend this retreat!"

Igniting Play and Creative Expression through Art

I am a champion for creativity on every level. I founded Mining the Magic with the strong belief that we, as human beings, are wired to create. I am intrigued by the creative spirit within each of us, that unfettered joy of making something…anything. 

Embracing our creativity challenges us, puts us in a place of the unknown, expands our understanding, opens our hearts, asks us to be courageous and to trust in the process. Every piece of creative endeavor is a new beginning, a new possibility. 

I began my art journey by creating black and white photos that I hand tinted, printed, framed and sold in the wholesale market, including Restoration Hardware and Eddie Bauer Homestore. It became a very successful business which I loved until I didn’t. It became familiar and known, the opposite of what creativity offers, the magic in the unknown! After 12 years, I left the business and began my search to understand and embrace the creative process. 

During the creative sessions, I encourage trusting the process and embracing mystery over mastery.  Like a metaphor for life; we practice playing and engaging with the art from a place of curiosity, courage and compassion.
