FROM BREAKDOWN TO BREAKTHROUGH
exonerate, embolden, embody
lay claim on the ultimate freedom and lasting fulfillment that is your birthright as a human being
Beginning January 2022
Endeavor on a 6-month journey of transformation from breakdown to breakthrough.
With Tantra and yoga as our guides, we will traverse the trials and tribulations of the mind in search of the secret of the Yoga Sutra: everlasting joy awaiting you in the cave of your heart.
EMERGE is taught in three stages
- Stage I : Exonerate the Mind restore the mind's inherent pristine nature through Sutra 1:33.
- Stage II : Embolden the Heart through trustful surrender, remember the joy inherent to your heart, and delight in the experience of life.
- Stage III : Embody your Soul's Purpose guided by ancient Tantric wisdom, identify your soul's desires and let them unlock your unique purpose - that which propels you to truly thrive.
This transition is the calling of our time. Yoga, in its infinite wisdom, provides the path. As yoga teachers, we humbly attempt to honor this path and share it powerfully and authentically with you.
FREEDOM AND FULFILLMENT
Are you ready to move away from fear and limitation - toward freedom and fulfillment?
Are you ready to let go of your victimhood and become the hero of your story, instead?
Are you ready to claim your birthright: a peaceful mind, joyful heart, and unique purpose in life?
Okay then, let's get to it.
We are looking for twenty brave souls ready to step into the fullest expression of themselves. The journey will be intense, transformative, and deeply nourishing. The teachings and practices are directly inspired by the Yoga Sutra as shared through the teachers in the Himalayan Tradition.
Look into your heart. Do you KNOW there is more for you in this life? Are you ready to shake off the inertia and step boldly into it? The process won’t be easy, but it WILL be worth it.
It's time to EMERGE
EMERGE is open to aspirants anywhere in the world. I am seeking twenty participants ready to make a devoted commitment to themselves through this process.
We will meet via Zoom. All group sessions will be recorded, and private sessions can be scheduled to your convenience.
Session will include asana, pranayama, meditation, yoga nidra, study of the Yoga Sutras and a massive amount of self-inquiry. There will likely be laughter, tears, and everything between. Be prepared for a bumpy ride, and know that every struggle is more than worth the pure joy waiting on the other side.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long do I have access to the course?
Eight Months. Once you've enrolled and paid, you'll have access to the course material to process at your own pace over the course of our time together + two additional months. Ideally this will encourage commitment, while allowing for extra time to process and digest, if needed. Each module, along with the support materials, will post to CourseCraft within 24 hours of our live session.
Do I need to register for all three stages?
Yes, this is a complete process. Commitment is very important for genuine transformation.
Is there any other way for us to stay connected over the six months, outside of the live sessions?
Yes, there will be a closed social network we can utilize to stay in contact with one another. There will be one scheduled 'office hours,' in which you can join to check in, ask questions, and reconnect with the group. You will also receive one private session with me during Stage III.
Please explain about the scholarship opportunities.
If you feel called and compelled to participate in this course, but do not have the financial investment available, please let me know. If the desire and the commitment are there, the means will be there, as well. Together we will find a way.
