Are you ready to  Lead the Change
you wish to see in the world?

Powder Mountain, Utah
AUGUST 21-25, 2019

“Important changes that change the entire trend of civilization… begin in the form of a definite decision in the minds of a relatively small number of people.


What will be possible in our society because 100 of us came together at Embody U to become more empowered, effective, joyful agents of change in our world?

If you’re a high-achieving, emotionally intelligent professional, you need more than “self-care” to perform at the highest level.

It’s time for you to unleash your full potential and Embody YOU.

The challenges we face in society and our world are symptoms of a larger epidemic: the chronic and collective impact of disconnection – from ourselves, from each other, and from the world.

We’re drowning in information overload, we’re losing the “care” in “healthcare,” we’re horrified at the way our species is polluting our planet, we’re overwhelmed, bombarded with negative news, & swimming in a sea of fear and anxiety.

And.. we’re addicted to playing the “too busy” card as a socially-acceptable excuse to avoid harnessing our own power to create the world we wish to see.

Now is not the time to wonder “who am I to think I can change anything?  It’s all too big.”

Now is not the time to let “the system” limit the contribution you’re here to make.

And now is definitely not the time to hide beneath feeling alone, hopeless, overwhelmed, or exhausted.


People are suffering, sick, hurting, and dying — and some part of you wants to scream, “it doesn’t have to be this way!”

Deep in your soul, y0u know exactly the deeper issues that aren’t being addressed, and you want to do something about it.

But before the “doing”, comes the BEING.


To create the impact you’re here to be during this pivotal time in human history, you’ve got to BE the vessel that healing, truth, and love can flow through, in a greater capacity than you’ve experienced before.



Are you willing to Embody You?


“I’m so blown away by this retreat.  So many good tears.  One of my big learnings from this experience, was how powerfully life supports us.  I am utterly awe-struck by how that unfolded for me here. I have no words.  The transformation and the support I had, was just incredible.  Huge ground-shattering, awesomely ground-shattering transformation.  So much is moving that’s never been moving before.  I don’t know how to express my gratitude to you for creating this event.”

– Barbara

Throughout history, we’ve had pivotal moments in which people have come together to change the world.   


And now, it’s our time. 


We’re here to restore trust, compassion, connection, and creativity to our fragmented world… starting with ourselves.


We’ve been preparing our whole lives for this moment in human history.


It’s our time to come together for a transformational experience, with a shared intention to exponentially accelerate our impact as we hardwire the heart of humanity.

“There is almost a sensual longing for communion with others who have a large vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendship between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality impossible to describe.”


Who It’s For:

Embody U attracts social innovators, high performers, speakers, holistic business owners, coaches, psychologists & therapists, healers, healthcare professionals, somatically-inspired messengers, and evolutionary thought leaders who:

  • Want to uplevel your impact, influence, and effectiveness

  • Value mind-body practices and somatic awareness as a pathway to authentic expression, creative problem-solving, personal power, and purposeful action

  • Are ready to deepen your skills and mastery of navigating the fears, emotions, and challenges of embodying your purpose

What will be possible in our communities, our healthcare systems, our education systems, our politics, and our environment  because 100 of us came together at Embody U to become more empowered, energized, effective agents of change in our world?



How many countless lives will be impacted because you prioritized your own tranformation?

“Have you introduced me to magic?  This is AMAZING, BRILLIANT, INSIGHTFUL, LIFE ALTERING, and LIGHT!
I am blown away by the power of this practice.
I encourage anyone to spend time laughing and coaching with Anne
and expect a sea of wonderful changes to follow.”

– Laurel Pumphrey, Founder, The Pumphrey Method(R) of Music Therapy and Amusia Training

What’s Required:

At Embody U the four core elements of your Mind, Body, Voice, and Purpose are transformed through the skillful use of self-compassion and creativity within a curated community of powerful, self-aware, emotionally intelligent professionals.

You’ll move through the developmental stages from
“life happens TO me” to “life happens THROUGH me” in 3 key areas: time, money, and your unique purpose, message and calling.

And in discovering the power of play, group flow experiences, and creative movement, you will rewire your nervous system into greater flow, open your mind to miraculous new possibilities, and uplevel your thinking so that you BE the change you wish to lead in the world.

    Mindset & Mindfulness

    Cultivate greater resilience, ease, and flow by deepening mindfulness and self-compassion practices.  Develop mindsets that create crystal clarity of focus and self-efficacy, and protect from fear-based reaction, overwhelm, distraction.

    Body Intelligence & Play

    Master the art of understanding your body as antenna, receiver, receptacle, and messenger, interpreting your body’s subtle cues and symptoms as powerful clues and guides, leading you to embody your most empowered and vibrant self. 

    Voice & Messaging

    Skillfully adapt your words to create the impact you desire — speak up for your truth, call out injustice with compassion, set clear boundaries, and ask for the support you need to get what you really desire.

    Purpose & Potential

    Deepen your embodiment of your soul’s purpose, amplify your personal power, and clarify the next steps and stages of your mission with a clear action plan.

    What You’ll Receive:

    TRUST:  Restored trust in yourself and in life, so you can bring trust, compassion, and healing to our fragmented world.

    FLOW: A suite of tools and practices to help you live in the flow of your greatest impact and highest possibilities each day.

    JOY:  Reconnection with your authentic joy to magnetize the resources you need to thrive.

    PLAYBOOK:  your action plan and personalized practices 
    CLARITY: your soul-aligned personal mission, vision, and next steps 
    COMMUNITY: your soul family tribe of new friends, colleagues, and collaborative partners

    “Joy is our goal, our destiny.  We cannot know who we are except in Joy.  Not knowing Joy, we do not know ourselves..”

Her years of experimenting with intentional laughter, play, and flow states in the context of self-actualization, energy healing, and consciousness studies led to the emergence of QUANTUM PLAYTM , a somatic and holistic practice for unleashing power and potential and living in flow.

    With clients & students in 15 countries and counting, Anne draws from her diverse background as a biplane wing-walker, skydiving instructor, triathlete, jazz pianist, scuba diver, barrel racer, historian, web developer, leader of global joy retreats, laughter yogi, occasional raw foodist, and human potential junkie to inspire leaders to challenge the status quo, dare to do the impossible, and rise above “ordinary” to co-create a more compassionate, inclusive, and sustainable world.

    How is this different from other embodiment conferences or personal development events?

    Often, conferences are oriented around the transmission of information, with little or no time to embody, integrate, and apply the learning in a way that creates sustainable transformation.   We believe that you’ve got all the information you need; what’s required now is for you to live what you already know.  Embody U is designed to support you in sourcing your own wisdom and creativity, and to eliminate the compensatory pattern of looking outside yourself for answers and solutions.

    Plus, this is a co-creative experiment — you’ll have the opportunity to play in small groups throughout the event, to create group flow states, exchange ideas, and tap into “group mind” collaborative genius, where what emerges is greater than anything that could happen individually.

    You’ll also enjoy spaciousness of time to integrate your transformation, with ample opportunities to explore the natural beauty of the Powder Mountain campus.

    And because play accelerates transformation (neurological networks are formed 10x-20x more quickly when you infuse learning with play), you’ll be creating new synapses in your brain more quickly because play is infused throughout the event.   (Our intention is to make this the most fun and powerful event you attend all year!)

    Also, most conferences happen in hotel ballrooms under fluorescent lights.   We believe that nature, wilderness, fresh air, sustainably-designed buildings created with the intention of building community, and gorgeous mountain landscapes enhance transformation, simply as a result of reconnecting with our beautiful earth.

    Is everyone welcome at this event? I notice that the faculty is all white women!

    Yes! While we do tend to attract mostly women and our language often focuses on women, Embody U is open to everyone.

    While we may occasionally use the language of the “divine feminine” energy or leadership, this energy is not restricted to one gender, or even defined by anything gender- related.  We may also use the language of “allowing” instead of “achieving,” or “aligning” instead of “accomplishing”. 

    Regardless of semantics, the energy of Embody U is that of embodying your full potential, living your divine purpose, and harnessing the spiritual energy that is your deepest truth, to create a life of joyful contribution, ease, and flow and accelerate the impact that you’re here to make in the world. 

    Anyone who resonates with this mission is very welcome at Embody U.

    We were also struck by the homogeneity of the faces on our website and would love for Embody U to include honest conversations about how we all may use our leadership effectively to expand into a more diverse community of change-makers, paradigm-shifters, and revolutionaries.

    Will I need to have my own car?

    There are two factors to consider:

    1) Powder Mountain is about an hour and twenty minute-drive north of Salt Lake City International airport.  You may rent a car or take a shuttle to get to the Powder Mountain campus.

    2) Once you have arrived at Powder Mountain, we will be moving back and forth each day between the lower campus and the mountain top.   If you have your own vehicle, you’ll be free to move about at your discretion, giving you maximum freedom to choose your own adventure.  

    However, if you do not have your own vehicle at Powder Mountain, we will have transportation arrangements so that you may move with the group between locations each day.

    Will I need bottled oxygen at this altitude?

    The Powder Mountain campus spans two elevations:  the condominiums where you’ll sleep are at 5,400 feet above sea level, as are some of the gathering spaces;  some of the experiences will be held in the Sky Lodge facility, which is at 8,400 feet elevation.   Most people hardly notice the elevation; however, if you should experience any discomfort, bottled oxygen will be available upon request.  If you have a medical condition that would create potential challenges for you to participate, please contact us so we may discuss accessibility options.

    Can I get CEUs from attending Embody U?

    CEUs may be available; please email us with your licensing requirements and credentials.  

    What's the difference between Private Master Suite and Private Room?

    A private Master Suite has a king-sized bed and its own bathroom.  A private Master Suite is perfect for someone wanting total privacy or for couples.

    A Private Room has (usually) a queen bed and will share a bathroom with other bedrooms in the condo.
