full self emergence
27-week Work Study Program

down arrow

Come join us in a thriving spiritual community
in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains!

Within every person is a creative spirit, passionate to emerge—with unbounded creativity,
vitality and joy, and compassion for other people—it is in every one of us.

So what stops that spirit from coming forth? All too often, people believe the negative messages they receive from the world around them. They come to believe the limiting stories told by the people in their lives and by the surrounding culture. They believe that it is too risky to be who they really are. And they lose faith in the power of their creative spirit.

Full Self Emergence is a 27-week residential program at Sunrise Ranch. It is for people who have awakened to the creative spirit within them and who are ready to let it out. The program is designed to share the enlightened knowledge of the transformational process that frees people to be fully themselves. It allows the participant to shed any limiting patterns of thought and belief they have absorbed from the world around them.

The Sunrise Ranch community forms the compassionate crucible in which
full self emergence takes place.

 We live in a time when people are awakening and the very heart and soul of Planet Earth is experiencing a rebirth. Fresh ideas and new technology abound. The heart of humanity is deepening. And a new vision of our future is inspiring people across the globe. In culture and society—and individually for each person—for something new to be born, something else has to fall away.

Rebirth happens in the midst of disintegration. This is the way of the phoenix. Virtually everyone finds themselves surrounded by this phenomenon. But it is not only happening outside of us. As human beings, it is transpiring in our own personal experience. For some, struggle pervades their lives. And for others, the spirit of rebirth brings new adventure and fulfillment. What do you want to birth into your life?

Sunrise Ranch is a teaching and demonstration site
for primal spirituality and conscious living. 

It is a place for learning, personal development and thriving community. A place for
the implementation of enlightened thinking and enlightened technology.
And a place to pioneer a new relationship with Planet Earth and the natural world.
Sunrise Ranch teaches primal spirituality—the spirituality that human beings are born with, and that ideally blossoms and grows as a person matures.

At Sunrise Ranch, people offer their own contribution to what is being born in the world 
and in themselves. It is a place where the fullness of who they are on the
inside is expressed on the outside. A place for 
Full Self Emergence.

David KarchereSpiritual Director
The Full Self Emergence Program is this amazing opportunity for people from all walks of life who are awakening to what their life is really about.

We have people coming from many different countries—people young and old and in between. People in their twenties, who have a passionate vision for themselves and the world. And people who have had successful professional careers, who are now ready to enter the next chapter of their lives.

Community 2009
People who complete the program find a clearer vision for themselves and a deeper understanding of their personal mission. They see the value of the contribution they have to make with people. They feel a deeper attunement with the spiritual wellspring within them. And being immersed in a joyful community experience, they feel a deep connection with others.

Most of all, they feel the joy of being more fully,
and more confidently, themselves.
