Your Hosts

Megan McCormick

Megan McCormick, a multipotentialite entrepreneur and native Texan, is currently based in San Diego, California. A lifelong artist, Megan finds immense joy through self-expression and empowering others to do the same. As a founder of three businesses, she has always been a leader in her community and family. Beginning in early adulthood, Yoga and meditation became steady practices in her life. She has always had an innate sense of knowing that there is MORE; more to love, more to feel, more to be, more to experience. During her very first retreat experience at Liberty Arising in Boulevard, California she was awakened to the understanding that she is infinite and limitless, and that everything she could ever want and or need was already inside of her. With this awareness, and her inner knowing of oneness with the universe and humanity, she realized she had the power to manifest her reality. Her effervescent passion for creating and bringing souls together has birthed Rising Soul Retreats. As someone who has experienced so much healing and support throughout her own spiritual awakening, it is her mission to facilitate that for others through Rising Soul Retreats.

Ashlee McRae

Ashlee McRae, a Self-Love coach and Manifestation Guide, loves creating meaningful connections in beautiful event spaces, usually under a disco ball. After diving deep into her own spiritual healing and personal development over the last three years, her entire reality has shifted. A long time wanderer, Ashlee spent much of her 20s “looking for herself” all over the globe. It wasn’t until she discovered meditation, manifestation, and tapping into her own intuition that everything changed. Although still a seeker, she now turns inward for guidance. By knowing, loving, and accepting who she truly is, she has manifested her dream job working with The Royal Shaman, and lives unapologetically according to her own desires. She lives in a dreamy cliff side home in San Diego with the most supportive partner, and it’s her life mission to empower her clients to manifest the life of their dreams.

Testimonials

This experience was personal and curated to exactly what I needed! The group dinners are a great way to get to know everyone, and the meals were the perfect amount of filling without feeling overstuffed. Lounging by the pool was so relaxing, and the deep house yoga and meditation were a perfect way to start each day. My favorite part was the night we all huddled around outside to watch the stars. It was such a moving experience to be surrounded by people who are aligned with love and purpose.
- Cali Geyer

The creators of Rising Soul Retreats are the most bright, energetic, and strong creators you can ask for. Both sisters went above and beyond to co-create the most supportive and exciting retreat. They organized all the perfect touches and nourished our bodies, minds and spirits! As a facilitator I was able to share my gifts AND enjoy relaxation and play. I felt so much community support, group energy, and love on this retreat! We shared beautiful experiences together in an amazing space. We truly had the opportunity to choose our own adventure and flow like the goddesses we are. Megan and Ashlee held such a strong container for us to be radically authentic and open up even deeper to our true selves. I truly encourage everyone to attend a RSR!
- Saraswati Dragon (Rachel Wojcicki)

Rising Soul made a mark on my transformational journey. I connected with like minded women from the moment I stepped foot onto the beautiful property. I learned more about myself than I could have imagined. Our food selection was light, healthy and super delicious. We woke up with meditations at sunrise and went to bed with sound healing in the evenings. There’s not much more I could have asked for in an experience. My favorite part was definitely the deep house yoga. We worked our bodies, released tension while grooving to beautiful sounds of music. I would highly recommend Rising Soul retreats for anyone looking to expand their consciousness, build bonds with individuals and detox their minds and bodies.
- Rachael Vinas

The Rising Soul Retreat that I embarked on, brought women together all with a purpose to build a higher spiritual connection. It was a moment I won’t forget. The retreat offered seminars to better your health, and information I have never heard before. It was a one of a kind experience! I felt refreshed and more connected with myself after the retreat. I would go again and really appreciate all the hard work these women put into it together. They have the best intentions and it made an unforgettable impression on me!
- Leela Lebastchi

Megan is a shining light that leads you to find the truth in yourself. Every event I’ve ever attended of hers has been uplifting, joyous, and heart filled. She provides a safe space for you to open up and dive deep into yourself. She pours her heart and soul into giving each person a special experience that lasts a lifetime.
- Tristen Campanella

Since I started working with Ashlee, my reality has changed positively with no hustle even after just a short time. So much stress and emotional heaviness is being relieved. I feel energetic changes happening at a fast pace! I have had so many unexpected breakthroughs. I see life as a way for my soul to evolve, no longer a place to defend or protect myself. I see whatever is happening as a gift. She has an incredible feminine energy, I feel so much loved and cared for in her container. She is really changing my life!
- Alicia Lizarraga

Megan McCormick is truly one of the most thoughtful and organized people I’ve ever met. When it comes to getting things done, she is my (and so many others’) go-to girl! There is never a project too big or complicated for her to tackle and execute beautifully. The details in anything Megan has a hand in are so obviously curated and executed by her and she seems to have a signature style of doing things that only she can pull off. She is not only easy to work with, but she also makes it fun to undertake what can seem like a daunting task to most. It is a genuine pleasure to know and love this woman!
- Christi Carlin

Ashlee McRae has been nothing short of a blessing to have as a friend, mentor, and spiritual guide. At any given time, Ashlee has always been there to help me work through major and minor decisions in all aspects of my life with mindfulness and intention. She truly is a gifted soul that I feel lucky to have in my life and who never ceases to inspire me to reach my highest potential. If you have the opportunity to work with Ashlee, in any way, I am confident you will leave with your heart full and excited for your next experience with her.
