Integrity as Awakening: The Magic of Personal and Collective Emergence

Blue Spirit Costa Rica - October 29-November 5

By bringing each domain of our lives into deep integrity, balance, and wholeness, higher states of consciousness such as flow states, mystical experiences, and non-dual awareness emerge. 

In this sense, integrity is awakening. 

Using Brooke Sprowl’s pioneering psychospiritual model, Emergence Theory, we will chart a course to bring every area of your life––individual, relational, missional, and behavioral––into integrity, unlocking the latent spiritual, creative, and transformative energy that naturally awakens when we are living out our deepest values, highest purpose, and unique gifts.


"The art of pilgrimage
is setting off to a place
far away that you find
is already inside you
when you arrive."

David Whyte


Through sessions designed to activate your creativity, somatic intelligence, and intuitive wisdom, we invite you to deepen your connection to the divine, invisible reality within and beyond all things as a source of inner guidance as you commune with the living, breathing nature of the lush Costa Rican coastline.

Experience the magic of personal and collective emergence.

After the launch, she plans to begin working on her next book, which will outline the theory, principles, and practices of her psychospiritual model, Emergence Theory.

Far from a problem to be solved,
our pain is the messenger
of our soul’s great lessons,
offering us endless invitations
to deepen and expand.
