What we're about

This group blends games, exercises and questions from modalities such as authentic relating, improv, team building, dream building, and mindfulness and breathwork to nurture creativity, self-expression, clarity, spontaneity, authenticity and fun.

This meetup is great for anyone looking to reach higher in their life. Anyone who has a yearning to connect with their inner child, to break free from limiting beliefs, and create fun and authentic connection with others.   
This group supports clarity, self exploration, awakening, and living the life you truly desire.

We will use strategies for acceptance of offers from ourselves and others. We will play some games which are part of improvisation, but also can be applied in real life. We will also explore meditation, breathing, visualization, stretching and other strategies to change our thoughts towards what we truly want in life.
No experience is required to join this group, only a willingness to follow the rules, be respectful of other's experience, and openness to accept, elevate and encourage others' offers.

This group is for real, in-person conversations, accepting offers with open and honest intentions. It is always safe and respectful to share your thoughts and spontaneity, and to explore your thoughts.

Come alone, bring a friend, or ten. I look forward to growing with you.

ONLINE. YOU MUST REGISTER AT https://awakken.as.me/workshops TO RECEIVE THE EVENT LINK.

WHO THIS IS FOR
Anyone who wants to practice and explore authentic relating techniques in a healthy, safe, open and supportive environment.

WHAT WE DO
We will go through a few questions to explore our uniqueness with curiosity and compassion. We will explore the feeling patterns, physiology, and emotions associated with our beliefs, biases, and the meaning we assign to words, situations and events in our lives.

HOW WE DO THIS
We play a variety of warm-up improvisation games to bring out clarity, spontaneity, a sense of joy and well being in the creative process. We use techniques from a variety of different modalities such as authentic relating, team building, dream building, meditation and tapping. The goal is to allow ourselves to simply be ourselves, as we are, in the present, without judgement. This allows us to explore the bigger truth, beyond the limits we set for ourselves. Discover who we truly are underneath who we think we are supposed to be. We can then learn to take concrete steps towards our deeper truth. The games and exercises are geared to help us shed our inhibitions, bring in more fun, spontaneity and creativity in our day to day life so we can reach higher to our full potential; being and feeling fully alive.

WHAT TO BRING
o Please bring the utmost respect to other people's ideas. An ability to accept all offers, and to go with the flow of any idea presented, whether or not it makes sense to you, and no matter how silly or pointless it appears.
o Willingness to practice spontaneity. To question assumptions. To allow yourself to not have the right answers, or have answers that don't make any sense to anyone else, and be ok with all of it.
o Willingness to create and honour this safe space where exploration, presence, and connection is valued.
o Please bring a readiness to support other people's ideas and dreams.
o Please also bring a bottle of water.
o Wear comfortable clothing.
o Bring your inner playful child. And why not bring a friend or two as well?

IMPORTANT TO KNOW
o Every member should feel safe, respected, and valued at all times.
o RSVP early to guarantee a spot. If you cannot make it, be sure to change your RSVP early to allow other members to join in.
o Please be sure to check back 12 hours prior to the event for cancellations.

1:1 Transformational Coaching

Link visible for attendees

ONLINE. REGISTER HERE: https://awakken.as.me/transformational-coaching

These coaching sessions are for people looking to break through an area where they feel stuck, reach higher, create an impact in the world, and let go of the fear that is holding them back.

I ask questions to help remove perceived obstacles and open up to possibilities that exist.

Each participant brings in and defines the help they need in the area they feel stuck, held back or unable to break free.

Let's face it, we all have blind spots. We all have fears that hold us back and there are places we dare not look. But what if I told you that your greatest fear is the key that unlocks your greatest desire? It can be difficult to see where we limit ourselves and that's where a coach comes in.

In improv fashion, dare to be heard and seen so that you can break free. Answer the call you feel deep in your heart, lean in to increase your clarity and take the necessary action.

You must apply to receive coaching. Only those that fill out the application form completely will be accepted.

• IMPORTANT
These sessions are a safe place to be seen and heard so that we can let go of what holds us back. Just as in improv sessions, we do not judge or criticize, but rather we open ourselves up to possibilities which exist and embrace all that is, just as it is.
