Episode 4: Emory Hall


‘The saturn return is a necessary transitional rite of passage, it is an initiation, and holding on to that knowledge helps you walk in strength and surrender.. Life is all about evolution and growth and learning…

“Mantra is an amazing meditation, a peeling back of layers of self..” 

Emory Hall is a photographer, writer, world traveler and truth seeker. Her work documents the complex realities, vibrant cultures and ancient wisdom of communities from the farthest reaches of the Himalayas to the Mesopotamic borders of the Middle East. Using her photographs and writing as creative outlets, Emory has attempted with her work to bring awareness to important global issues, to inspire others, and to offer a voice to those whose circumstances inhibit that. She has worked as creative director for her husband, musician Trevor Hall, for the past 5 years, and is currently working on curating retreats in Nepal as well as publishing her first book.
