Erica introduces a methodology of combining storytelling, emotionally connected yoga classes, visionary art and framed nature to inspire inner knowing, interconnectedness and spiritual care. Since 2008, she has gathered over 300 women and men from over 36 countries for week long retreats to study one chakra at a time.
In 2017, her Kickstarter family raised over $50,000 in less than 30 days to print, produce and distribute her second book, ANGELUS : an experiential chakra workbook due out Spring 2019. As an accomplished graphic designer, her first book, Art of Attention, was ranked #1 for book design on Amazon.com and is now translated into 6 languages.
Design is as a vital tool for transforming instructional concepts into artful and meaningful class experiences. As only the human body can generate love, the richness of these week long transformational experiences come from loving and knowing people in more than one place. What will the next retreat bring?

Jade is on a mission to shed light on the fundamental principal of Oneness. With heart and earth infused medicine, she hosts tea ceremonies with the intention to soothe minds, bodies and souls. Through the art of sipping tea, Jade cultivating stillness and mindful presence from the sacred tea leaves. The practice of Ceremonial Tea Meditation, like all rituals and ceremonies, is a time-honored container held to recognize the preciousness of life, in a conscious act of reverence, and to give thanks. To sit down in community, to settle here and now, to open ourself to receive tea consciously curated and graciously brewed, is a mindful way to engage in the present moment. Tea meditation is a beautiful and nourishing practice that brings a greater sense of peace and gratitude.
