Imagine waking up to the sound of ocean waves outside the window of your beautifully appointed guest suite and wandering outside to sip on a cup of coffee or tea with the early morning sunlight.

Release your busy mind and raise your energy through meditation, chanting and breath work.
Envision your taste buds dancing as you indulge in delicious, organic meals featuring the freshest fruits and vegetables and local fare.
Uplift your spirit through the power of the ocean and nature; paddle board, surf in the warm waters of the Pacific, swim in the pool, hike, journal, read or choose to do a sweat lodge.
Connect with men and women who are dedicated to Raising Their State.
How Will You Unwind & Rejuvenate You in 7 Days?
Morning and Evening Meditation with Doug will still your mind and connect you to the vast inner planes of consciousness.

Meet Your Raise Your State Guides
“As we strive to recognize the light of Spirit through each others hearts, we annihilate the veils of ego that surround the heart. This, in short, is the spiritual path of relationship. This is the opening to love.” ~ Doug Allen
As a couple and co-creators at Raise Your State, we are committed to our individual evolution and to growing love, respect and trust in our relationship. We believe that love grows and deepens by knowing how to nurture it.
As we stay committed to Raising Our State, we invite you to join us.
