Remember Who You are and Who You Want to Be
When was the last time you slowed down enough?
When was the last time you STOPPED?
Your inner voice has wisdom to share with you.
Let me invite you to unplug, slow down, and tune into your inner voice by letting NATURE take the lead.
You just may discover the magic available in Nature – and in YOU.
Discover and Remember Who You Are
EMERGE is a rustic luxury experience with campfires, forest bathing, learning, conversation, and enough downtime that you EMERGE exhilarated and rejuvenated instead of exhausted.
The Retreat investment of $1,597 includes two nights lodging in your own private room + bath, five meals throughout the weekend, guided forest bathing sessions, group + individual coaching/wayfinding, evening campfires, and other activities.
I gained the ability to look at the problems I faced through a fresh, informed perspective. In addition to offering new insight into challenges in my life, Angie helped me zero-in on lifelong negative patterns that stood in the way of my personal & professional success. By offering an outside, non-judgmental perspective on my life, Angie helped me bridge the gap between my circumstances and the (mis)perception of myself, and the life I wanted to lead. She helped guide me to new viewpoints and solutions that I never considered or imagined possible.

EMERGE: A Quiet Retreat
Everybody who contemplates going on retreat is hoping to find that place within her that gets lost in the grocery store, at work, and in the hustle and “go” of everyday life.
The truth is, all of us have that this place inside us … a core of peace, a place of stillness, where our inner knowing lives. It’s from THAT place that we make the most powerful, aligned DECISIONS for OURSELVES.
You’re a professional woman who wants to be supported, heard, and helped. You want gentle guidance without any of the “go big or go home” bro goals. You want community and expertly facilitated exercises and conversation. Also, abundant quiet time if and when you need it. With all that, you want to EMERGE clear, calm, and thriving!
Angie has a gift for listening, sensing and interpreting. Being with Angie is like being in a soft, cozy judgment-free zone and I was able to share everything I was thinking and feeling. She took what I said and often saw and heard way beyond it, probing with such insightful questions that kept us excavating and exploring.

My takeaways from the trip are centered around being able to bring myself back to a calm and peaceful state when work and life get a bit stressful or just too ‘loud’. To be able to redirect my thoughts and to intentionally slow down down my pace. To seek out opportunities to slow down and find peace.

Earthshine Lodge and Retreat Center
What the heck is forest bathing? Forest bathing is the Japanese art of thoughtfully spending time in nature. It’s official name is Shinrin-Yoku. It is literally taking in or immersing yourself in the forest using your six senses. I like to say, “Shoes are optional but clothing is mandatory when you forest bath with me.”
What should I bring for the weekend? Even though we’re gathering in June, we’ll be spending ample time outdoors. Bring layers, sturdy shoes, and a good rain jacket or umbrella. Don’t forget your favorite journal and pen. And bring any special snacks you might want, especially if you regularly eat between standard meal times. You will need a cooler and ice if anything is perishable because Earthshine has a commercial kitchen and no outside food is allowed in that area.
What is the cancellation policy? All sales for events are final. There are no refunds. If you’re IN, you’re IN.
