Why to NOT enroll in Awaken program.

If you’ve got questions about the Awaken program then read on! I’ve got some answers for you. ☺

Sometimes when making a decision to commit to something, it can be really helpful to have a sense of who would NOT make the commitment. IN service to this, I’ve compiled a list that can help you assess if this program is NOT for you.

You should NOT enroll in Awaken if you are someone who:

Wants to hide in old patterns of sedation, control, and/or addiction. If this is you, that’s okay. I’ve been there in the past, and still have days when I fall into this space. It can be super-tough to take the first step into change. Stepping into our best Self asks us to bring light to all that is dark and unconscious in a safe and steady manner. This is the single most powerful way to step into your authentic power. If you’re not ready and willing to take an honest look at your patterns and create new ones, then Awaken is NOT for you.

Would rather feel better quick, than get better at feeling. We aren’t always guaranteed total radiant health and perfection. Life just doesn’t work that way. In Awaken, healing has happened not necessarily when we feel better, but when we become willing to feel and sit with all that arises with presence and love. This is the deepest root medicine. As one of my teachers told me: “Natural healing is slow healing—and sustainable healing.” Awaken is a journey that will increase your self-awareness and empower you to take charge of your life—it’s not a quick fix.

Doesn’t want vulnerability in their life. Being part of a group of supportive people going through the process of personal growth and transformation together is a powerful force. We saw it last year. It can be really scary—and tough to be seen. In the long run though, it is incredibly healing to have community. Are you strong/brave enough to be seen in all your amazing and unique imperfections? Are you willing to step into vulnerability? If not—then Awaken is not for you.

Doesn’t want more (physical health, relational, spiritual, financial,) abundance in their life. Awaken isn’t just for people who want to make Ayurveda a part of their lifestyle, but it will help anyone willing to do the work get clearer on their worth and value. And it can be scary to actually ADMIT WHAT YOUR HEART LONGS FOR. But, I have to ask: what’s the point of life you don’t follow your joy and calling? If you’re not ready to step into abundance and radiance in your life, then Awaken is NOT for you.

Isn’t ready to take RADICAL RESPONSIBILITY for their current life situation. Victim consciousness is one of the easiest patterns to turn towards. It’s truly easier (however less fruitful) to continue blaming our partner, parents, kids, community, the government, etc. And while it is so important to acknowledge, correct, and heal from our painful past, it can easily become a block if we let ourselves stay there for too long. If you’re not ready to take ownership of your life, then Awaken is NOT for you.

Wants to hide their voice. When you enroll in Awaken, you may be called to speak up in a new way in your life. This will take courage - a word with Latin roots meaning “to live from the heart.” Living from your heart isn’t airy-fairy, or some kind of woo-woo-hippie stuff. It can be tough—AND the earned rewards from embracing this challenge are immense. If you want to hide, that’s okay. If you want to remain silent, that’s okay too. If you are not ready to be heard and to really speak your truth—at least to your Self—then Awaken is NOT for you. If you are ready to discover your voice—then Awaken is your place!

Doesn’t want to be STRETCHED. Awaken WILL ask you to stretch and extend yourself intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. You will be more expansive and empowered then you when you started. You will be more confident, clear, and in control of your life. Sometimes it’s easier and more comfortable to stay small. If you are in a place in your life where you want to remain small and are not ready to step into you power, then Awaken is NOT for you. :-)

Isn’t interested in changing and evolving the paradigm of wellness, yoga, and Ayurveda on the planet away from outdated and harmful models of health, healing, and being in relationship with our bodies, environment, and nature. If you’re not ready to be part of shifting our current cultural paradigm of celebrating burnout, fatigue, disconnection, and disempowerment, then Awaken is definitely not for you. In Awaken, you will be empowered to take control of your life—your health, and become a beacon of influence for those in your life. You will become part of a culture of health, vitality, and a role model for living a life of purpose, vitality, and meaning.

Awaken is notget-healed-quick scheme or program. Awaken is journey of self-discovery that takes dedication and time. It requires intentionality and commitment; it requires effort and patience. I know in my heart, from personal experience and from witnessing others go through this process, that if you stay open-minded, willing, and truly commit to the call to adventure—the call to Awaken—you will get so much from this program.

So, the question now stands: Are you willing to step in to YOUR best Self in 2020?

Are you ready and willing to commit to beginning the next decade by becoming the person that you WANT to be—feeling how you WANT to feel?

Frequently Asked Questions What if I don’t have a health issue? You don't have to be sick or worried about your health or weight to enroll in Awaken to reap all the benefits from this program. This is for anyone who wants to dive deep into themselves with guidance and deeply heal while learning the habits that support their whole being in optimal functioning. It's why we go through the habits 3 times over the span of a year. This program is an amalgamation of all I've learned about health and wellness from the realms of psychology, ayurveda, and yoga. YOU are the primary benefactor of this collection of healing practices. It's a mentorship program that invites YOU to ultimately be mentored BY YOU and YOUR BODY. This is a program about investigating and healing our DNA and lineage. It’s about coming home to you and your inner wisdom.

What if I hate being on the computer and don’t like using technology or the internet? Yay for you! I don’t like being online too much either. Unfortunately, being able to watch lectures and participate in group calls requires access to a reliable internet connection and a computer that can handle streaming. One of the perks of this program is that it is ACCESSIBLE to most anyone willing to put in the time and show up. You don’t have to travel or drive anywhere, which is awesome. You can learn and grow from the comfort of your home. It’s like home schooling but better (and cooler) because your network of peers are people from all over the world ready to rise up and claim their health and Awaken into living a life of intentionality, purpose, and abundance.

I've never even read a book about Ayurveda, can I still join? Yes! You don’t need to be a yogi, or have any background in Ayurveda. We start with the basics and build from there. The goal of Awaken is not to become an expert in Ayurveda or yoga, but rather use simple practices grounded in this healing tradition to support you in living your best life.

How many hours a week should I plan to dedicate to this? It depends on you and how deep you want to go. Generally the minimum is 3hrs per week. All the live classes are recorded and stored in our virtual classroom so you can watch and re-watch as much as you like.  Remember, Awaken is a year-long program - you have plenty of time. Make space for and commit to the weekly lectures just like you would for any education or personal development program. Slow & steady wins the race every time!
