ECHO 2017: ECHO is that I needed to connect with myself.
What is ECHO?
A 72-hr experience purposefully designed to take its participants far out their comfort zones in order to expand their emotional intelligence through a series of revolutionary workshops, passionately curated talks by some of the world’s most influential doers, mindfulness practices and live performances. In diversity, we choose to embrace vulnerability.
ECHO is based on Diversity and shared ethos focused on empathy, communal action, contribution and knowledge sharing. As a community, we venture together into unknown corners of ourselves to find clarity and inspiration. Our Tribe is an ever-growing network of entrepreneurs, artists, executives, pragmatists and enthusiasts of all kind.
How does it work?
At ECHO, speakers, practitioners and attendees sit, eat, live and dream side by side, no hierarchies. Surrounded by nature, the days flow around stories, groundbreaking content, music and of course, celebration of life. We provide you with the tools and the canvas to revamp your life's story.
When & Where?
June 22-25. 2017. The ECHO Tribe gathers yearly at Puerta a la Vida, a 65 acre sustainable organic farm located in the hills nearby the town of Miramar, in the Puntarenas region, Costa Rica. Where the mountains meet the ocean, a magical place you will soon start calling “home”.
The ECHO Village is a pop-up camp composed of 3 person luxury safari style tents laying under an “higuerón” tropical forest, with all amenities included. Technology used is discouraged..but don’t worry, the howler monkeys re a great alarm clock.
What do I get?
Whether you came as a speaker, scholar, attendee or sponsor; your ticket includes accommodation, all food and drinks (alcohol excluded), transportation (optional) from San Jose city and airport. And most importantly, you'll get to have your mind and heart more stimulated than ever before.
ECHO 2016 took place from 14 to 17 July. Once again, the event sold out and created a massive ripple impact on all who attended. In its second edition, ECHO became a more intimate, vulnerable and transformative experience. 2016 represented a turning point for the consolidation and growth of the ECHO Tribe, represented by 15 nationalities from 4 different continents.
Looking back on it, feels like a “before and after” effect. We took the biggest risk of our lives, and it paid off more than we ever dreamed off. We stuck to the idea that, it is out of our comfort zone where personal growth and inspiration truly take off. On our first year, we gathered 110 individuals from 17 different countries. A tribe was born. We've never felt so free.
