During this experience we will be facilitating a series of playshops designed to maximize your aliveness by practicing radical authenticity and self-acceptance through self-expression.   These group activities create an expansive container for collaboration and creativity while giving us new tools for cultivating genuine REAL-ationships, expressing our genius, & living with elevated levels of vitality, confidence and excitement.

tap the spring of your conciseness & unleash your creative self-expression. 

you are already PREPAREd

The Breaking Normal Academy gives you an opportunity to build a foundation that supports YOU reaching your goals and living your dreams by becoming unapologetically you. We encourage you to come as you are, and be prepared to get fun-comfortable as you unleash your genius, speak your truth, move your body, and connect with your new family by stepping up your vulnerability and authenticity.

That said, we still recommend you go ahead and read Breaking Normal beforehand as it's a great guide to make sure you get the most out of your experience.





If you want to embrace all parts of yourself, fully embody your unique gifts, activate tour inner genius and discover a new way of living and relating, THIS IS FOR YOU. Join a group of like hearted individuals that dissolves the idea of societal conditioning and cultural norms. Take your lifestyle to the next level and turn your relationships into REAL-ationships.


Digging for GOLD can be a messy journey! Get ready and be open to explore the nooks and crannies of the roads less traveled. Sometimes it takes being fun-comfortable and expressing what's really behind the perceived emotions to reveal the wonders and invaluable gifts that are hiding in the shadows. A willingness to risk being seen and being fully you is crucial.


 This time we are blessed with the fertile grounds and climate of Costa Rica and our facility will be preparing 3 farm-to-table meals daily to keep your body nourished. We value quality and always do our very best to source our food from local organic farmers whenever possible.




We've recognized patterns within the human mind; one being that planning often gets in the way of unlimited thinking. If we go cliff jumping one day, some find themselves thinking about bungee jumping or whatever may be on the agenda the next day and no longer live in the moment but instead in the future. So here's the deal. You don't get an itinerary because we want you to experience the precent moment FULLY. We want you to stay open to the flow of life and learn to expect anything and experience everything. That said, to satisfy the left brain and the internal planner and organizer in you, here's a little sneak peak into some of the awesomeness and things you will most likely experience.

We'll be exploring the depths of our shadows, mind, and heart, outside of the cultural norm so be prepared for all things Breaking Normal.
