Antesa is the founder and visionary behind Adventure Awake, and recently left a 12 year career working in the investment banking industry to scale and expand this soul project of hers as a full time entrepreneur. Skilled in financial/money management, process and mindset disruption, talent recognition, communication & language, idea development, thought leadership, and coaching, she brings her vast and instinctive understanding of human behavior and relating and her architectural mindset with a sharp attention to detail with her everywhere she goes, whether it's on the road with a backpack and small groups of clients seeking tailor-made transformational travel experiences, through one-on-one coaching and mentorship programs with individual clients, or on the front lines in corporate environments where she is best known for swiftly dissecting cultural entropy - from financial processes to HR standards - so that the underlying value can be tapped under all circumstances. Antesa has been traveling the far reaches of the world for 17 years and feels most at peace sitting on edges of cliffs and scaling extremely steep mountain ridges.
Summer co-founded and leads operations and creative direction for Adventure Awake. Having been a coach since 2012, Summer has established her reputation as a trusted voice for authentic, purposeful self-actualization. She has dedicated her life to inspiring the deepest personal power out of everyone she meets as well as the 2M+ readers of her writing on desire based living, self-worth, intuition, purpose, sexuality, masculine/feminine dynamics, and victim consciousness. Her clients know her for her unwavering approval of all parts of them, and her willingness to cut through niceties and find out what's really there so that it can be loved, healed, and integrated. Summer is a world-traveler who has been living and traveling abroad full-time in Europe, Asia and the Middle East since 2015. Her passion is heartily experiencing and exploring the shiny exterior as well as the rugged underbelly of every place she visits, person she meets, food she tastes, art she enjoys, and culture she enters.
A trip with us is a fully-opted-in immersion into our surroundings and our collective experience. It's a transformational travel adventure that we co-create together rather than a tour where we herd you from landmark to landmark, checking off entries on your bucket list and taking the obligatory posed photo.
We aim for off-the-beaten-path and authentic experiences that will contribute to our expanded view of the world, and that will provoke us to dig deeper into ourselves and our understanding of who we are.
With Antesa's sharp sight and Summer's playful provocation, we smoothly pull out desires, offer opportunities for self-reflection, and swiftly rewire patterns that may be getting in the way of you showing up as your most exalted self.
Part of what we offer is the experience of being pulled away from the typical structures that confine us and limit our perspective. We design our trips to make space for you to lead by desire and truth, unbound and untamed by plans and rules.
We travel so that we can crack open wide enough for awe and wonder to take over, to make room for synchronicity and intuition to guide us, and so that, ultimately, we can Adventure Awake everywhere, and under all conditions.
