About this trip

The Art of Self-Inquiry

Pagosa Springs, CO



Join Jacq and Cole for four days of powerful exploration in building and nurturing a personal toolbox for all of life's journeys. We'll learn approachable and personalized techniques to care deeply for ourselves physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We hope our time together will leave you feeling inspired and empowered, and that you'll call upon these tools for years, or maybe even lifetimes ;)


We'll meet daily at a beautiful local studio in Pagosa Springs. If you're flying, we suggest coming into Durango-La Plata County Airport (DRO).

Our schedule will include a morning session, a lunch break, and an afternoon session. Food and lodging is not included in your registration, but there are plenty of nearby options. The studio is also walking distance to a grocery store and several restaurants and a short drive from the super cute downtown area.  Feel free to bring your special snacks too. If you're interested in pairing up with someone to find an airbnb or other accommodation, let us know and we're happy to create a group thread to chat in.


Please bring your yoga mat, pen/paper/journal, water bottle, snacks, sunglasses, shoes/clothes for light hiking, and bathing suit if you’re hot springing! We will have access to studio props - cushions, bolsters, blankets - for cozy seating arrangements. However, please let us know if you would like a chair instead.  

Average temps are high 63 + low 23 so bring appropriate clothes to stay cozy.


Additionally, and optionally, you’ll have the opportunity to dip in the magical local hot springs. We’ll see if they have group discounts (admission not included). We are also hoping to take a hike one morning to explore some of the natural local beauty (weather permitting)

Let us know any questions you have. We can't wait to see you soon!

One of the best present I could give to myself! Not only my patterns are shifting but also, a wonderful community has been created during the Emerge which is around and always ready to connect. Cole and all the contributors to this program are highly skilled and approachable throughout the duration of the program and after it. I could not recommend it enough! Thank you

Wonderful time. Beautiful setting, delicious food, and fun to meet new people. Really relaxing and rejuvenating. Only thing is I would have liked a little more yoga.

A Sicilian Summer Yoga and Creative Writing was a wonderful experience for me. The location was divine, and both Cole Chance and Victoria Erickson were phenomenal instructors - excellent at teaching, but also connecting with all attendees and intuitively adapting and bringing what was needed to each class and helping every attendee grow. In addition, the overall schedule of the retreat was perfect with plenty of good yoga and writing content, but also free time to mingle and explore. I felt comfort and familiarity, but also challenged and successful at finding the personal growth I was seeking. Yoga and writing together provide a unique retreat experience and feed off of each other to expand and enrich all of the classes and content, as well as help find flow and ease, something I greatly needed. I also loved the diversity of the group of attendees and what each person brought to the experience. My heart is full, from each person that was part of the retreat to the depth of the teaching and overall experience. This is truly one of the best and most memorable things I've ever done for myself! I will be better for it for the rest of my life. Cheers to Victoria and Cole!

If you feel stuck, if you are running, if you are numb, if you are choosing all the things that you know you don't want to choose but you aren't sure what else to do - then join Emerge. This is an amazing 8 week journey that you will share with other humans struggling just like you. Cole Chance guides you through structured content including self-inquiry, journaling, yoga, meditation/mindfulness (with Jacq St. Pierre), Buddhist philosophy, and even neuroscience. The way it's all tied in really helped it make sense to my brain. There is so much information and available resources that it's hard to get through everything, but that's some of the point. You pick and choose what works for you, leave the rest (or set it aside for later). There are guest workshops that give additional viewpoints and provide other resources to help you. But the biggest help for me were all the check-ins. We met several times a week, and each Sunday was a Satsang specifically built community interaction to talk about wins, challenges, and anything else about the topics covered for the week. The support, connection, compassion, inspiration, courage, openness, and vulnerability that each of us showed to one another and shared with ourselves was beautiful. I'm not fixed or healed, and recovery may be a long forever journey - but I was provided tools, I made friends, I connected with ideas and philosophies that helped me. I was able to challenge the inner voices that always tear me down and start to look at myself as worthy of being in this life again. Reaching out and waiting for this program to start was the hardest part, and once it started showing up each time became easier because we all grew to love one another. If you are struggling or just looking for something more, you deserve this connection too.

Loved it! This was a really incredible experience! Taos is an incredible place, and just the right venue to channel one's creative energy. The vibe was relaxing yet stimulating. Very well organized, with a good balance of organized activities and free time. Thank you for everything!!!
