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.

We explore different styles of meditation and mindfulness practices to raise awareness, including breathwork, body scanning, drumming, dancing, and guided visualization.

This group is for people yearning to reach their highest potential, reclaim all the parts they have disowned, connect with their inner child, break free from limiting beliefs, and create fun and authentic connection with others.

We support clarity, self-responsibility, self exploration, awakening, and living the life you truly desire.

We 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 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.

Guided Morning Meditations

Link visible for attendees

ONLINE. REGISTER HERE: https://www.awakken.com/opt-in-morning-meditation

We meet every Tuesday & Thursday morning to feel refreshed and renewed, with a new topic to practice over the course of the week ahead. Every week we focus on a different topic, approach, style or technique to continue our exploration of meditation as a practice.

Each session starts with a brief introduction, followed by 15-20 minutes in silent, music, breathwork, mantra or guided meditation. We then spend a few minutes writing any thoughts or insights that might have come up during the meditation or our intention for the day ahead. We end with a brief sharing of our intention, thoughts or insights to inject more energy into our circle and our day ahead.

There is a level of energy to meditation which is elevated as a group and which we tap into to strengthen our connection.

When I am asked what is the best meditation technique, my answer is "The one that you will practice every day".

I am not here to tell you what you are supposed to do or how to practice. I am, rather, sharing, as a friend, my own journey, to encourage you to explore and find yours. The topics are meant to help you explore different areas you might not have given yourself time, pause or space to explore.

We are each on our own quest to come home to ourselves. We can check in on each other for guidance, but ultimately, we will only find our way when we give ourselves permission to experiment with different paths.

Give yourself permission and the space to create your own unique style - what I call your unique signature, or soul print.

Give yourself permission to explore and find the technique that speaks to you, or multiple techniques to keep you interested in practicing every day. Sometimes changing things up is all that we need to keep up and instill a new habit.

Incredible Insight

Link visible for attendees

Are you ready to let go of fear, remove perceived obstacles, expand possibility and create a bigger impact in the world?

It starts by defining where you feel stuck and what you truly want instead. Then, assume responsibility for the life you claim you want.

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

These sessions are a guided group discussion to help access greater insights, creativity and self-expression.

I ask you questions to help remove perceived obstacles, increase clarity 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 included in the conversation.
https://awakken.as.me/transformational-coaching

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.

I have you covered! You can receive the answer you need to break through your perceived limitation by email!

Exploring Emotions - PWYC

Link visible for attendees

ONLINE. YOU MUST REGISTER AT https://www.awakken.com/improv#nextevent TO RECEIVE THE EVENT LINK. Pay what you can.

WHAT WE DO
o Each session starts with a mindfulness practice, including visualization, noticing thoughts and feelings, breathing and stretching.
o 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. 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.
o We give ourselves space to explore various emotions through writing, exercises and games. No previous writing or improv experience is required, only a willingness to participate fully.

In a world where we often are told to suppress emotions, this group is where we hold the space for everyone to feel and express their emotions, using improvised creative writing as a tool.

WHAT TO BRING
o Please bring 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 If you cannot make it, be sure to change your RSVP early so we know not to expect you. It's polite.
o Please do not RSVP if you do not plan to be there. We are real people looking to participate with other real people.
o Pay what you can.
