"I had been following Amber/Epic Self online for several months, and was intrigued by Epic Self retreats. They almost looked too good to be true! I chose to sign up for the Epic Awakening because I felt a calling to experience plant medicine, and I appreciated that Epic Self highlighted the safe space they hold in ceremony. I sensed that their involvement with the medicine came from pure intentions.
As soon as I connected with Amber on the phone, I felt comfortable and very well taken care of. The whole experience was beyond my expectations. One of my favorite aspects of the retreat was how accessible Amber was. She spent plenty of time with the retreat guests just hanging out, available for questions and deep discussions.
The whole Epic Self team was phenomenal. It was evident that every member of the team does this work as a calling, not just a job. The schedule was a perfect blend of yoga, meditation, clean eating, adventures, and relaxation. What more could you ask for?! I never felt bored or overloaded. It was just enough of everything. I was really blown away by the entire experience. I can't wait to go back!
I am set on retreating with Amber and Epic Self again in whatever capacity I can, because I know it's going to be a top-notch transformational time!"- Madeline Charles, Colorado
“So often we see people living a life on social media that they are not actually living in their everyday lives. It’s rare to find people who are authentically themselves in both worlds. When I was offered a fellowship position by Amber, I was nervous about accepting for fear that what I seeing portrayed was not actually going to be what was offered. What I quickly learned once I arrived at EpicSelf, is that Amber is one of the most authentic people you will ever meet. Every image Amber portrays on social media, she also embodies in real life. Every message and quote she posts, she lives by everyday. To be able to live, work and learn from the both of them for a month was the most profound experience of my life. They radiate love, support and guidance, every single day.
Looking back on this experience, I cannot believe how much my life has changed in such profound ways and in only one month. I learned nutritional information and raw recipes that will change my health and the health of others, who I can now share this information with. I built a business and website thanks to Amber’s social media, blogging, and SEO expertise.
My yoga, pilates and meditation practice evolved tenfold thanks to Amber, who I’m also convinced is the best instructor on this planet. But what sticks with me the most about my experience is that I found a completely awesome new tribe of friends and mentors who live their lives the way I want to live mine and who truly and deeply care about my personal and professional growth. I’m so grateful to have had such a life changing month. Thanks you two, for bringing me to Costa Rica and not only accepting me into your tribe but embracing me with such supportive and loving arms.”- Courtney Thorn, Vermont
