Join us for three days of soul-nourishing self-discovery, connection, and intention-setting.

We invite you on a journey toward discovering your authentic self — your inner core — and learning to stay anchored in it through all of life’s moments by cultivating your 5 core energies:

  • Purpose: What is the purpose of my life, and how do I create the space to pursue it among life’s daily demands?
  • Wisdom: How do I regulate my emotions and thoughts so I can see the truth in all situations by cultivating a perfect mental lens?
  • Growth: What is my highest potential, and what daily practice will help me arrive there?
  • Love: What is unconditional love, and how do I open my heart and flow with this energy in everything I do?
  • Self-realization: Who am I, at my core, and how can I anchor myself more and more in this very center of my being?

You will also explore the mystic quest for transcendence — a deep-felt connection with the universe that manifests as inner guidance and reassurance to direct your life path in a fast-changing world.
