You have been called here…

As we work to assimilate and conform to the demands of the overarching culture, we lose touch with the deep wellspring of our personal creative power. Exhaustion and overwhelm take over.
These five incredible days were built just for you. To bring you back to your intuit, your purpose and the pure ecstatic joy of being alive.


6 incredible days at Sunrise Mountain, The Sacred Geometry retreat center Emily co-founded with her husband Manex, in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica.
You will wake in a stunning Balinese Villa designed in the golden ratio, to inspire harmony and well-being.
Overlooking the sparkling Costa Rican ocean, you will surf the warm waves, feast on hand picked fruit and fresh coconut smoothies, do yoga to the sound of howler monkeys and engage in a journey of personal myth-making with a tribe of supportive new sisters.
Here you will also be healed and your energy centers opened through a master channeler from the Akashic realm.
