Awakened Living Master Class

It's time to find stillness and space

We live a hurried, jam-packed life. The days and months fly by in a flurry of routines and commitments. We're constantly in motion with a never-ending onslaught of distractions to occupy our minds and hearts. Tuning into ourselves has become nearly impossible.  


"If we're caught up in a constant buzz of activity, how will we ever connect with ourselves?" 

- Pico Iyer, The Art of Stillness


We all need stillness. It's in the white spaces of our lives that we find perspective and truth. IT'S WHERE WE FIND OURSELVES. 


The only way to live an awakened, authentic life is to find space for reflection and time to tune in. It's in these moments of solitude that we can, as Socrates prescribed, live an examined life.  It's in these moments that we pull back the frame of our lives and ask:


  • What's important to me?
  • Am I living in alignment with my true self?
  • Am I happy? Fulfilled? 
  • Do I really know who I am? 

It's in these moments that we SLOW... WAY... DOWN and become the witness of our lives. 


We need to come home to ourselves. It's time to take ourselves off autopilot. With love, compassion and zero judgement, it's time to wake ourselves up.

What's stopping you?

I don't have time

We make time for what's important. See this course not as one more thing to do but as the beginning of a total shift in priorities and the chance to put yourself first.  

I'm afraid of what I will see

I get it. This is uncomfortable work. This is like spring cleaning for your soul. It won't always be easy. But on the other side of our honesty is our authenticity. And when we are living authentically, we finally access true joy.

I'm not sure I can keep up

You may have read through the course structure with a sense of alarm. Yes, this is a rigorous experience designed to disrupt your life. It will take up space in your schedule and your mind. But on the other side of this work is my promise that if you do the work, you will be forever changed by this course. 

Feedback from Past Participants

Life changing!

 This has truly been life changing. Though I know I still have so much more work to do, I can already see changes happening in my every day life. This work has given me a new perspective in so many areas of my life, but mainly with how I treat myself and how that will flow over into how I am as a wife, mother, friend, etc. You have helped me to be awake and to just notice. 

 

That alone has created such an impact for me. I have so appreciated the group of amazing, strong and brave women that are apart of this group. I love the support and space that is held for each of us to share our thoughts and feelings. Thank you for what you have created. I look forward to continuing this work within myself as I dig and push myself to really look inside.

Exactly what I needed!

The Master Class is exactly what I needed to start focusing on myself again. The weekly readings and journal prompts provide our group with a common platform where we can share our experiences, learn from one another and grow together inch by inch. I am so grateful for the wonderful community of like-minded mamas we have created and I look forward to our call every week. 


I’ve already taken action on a few things as a result of this journey so I am very grateful for this class and the catalyst it has become for me to put more energy into self-care and self-love.

So many aha moments!

I am still in awe at the impact the master class has had on me and the changes I am seeing on my life already.  I had been on this journey of trying to be better, be happier, find myself and I feel like I was all over the place sometimes.  The master class has brought up all these ideas, intentions, and emotions together and provided a path for all of them to flow forward with focus and complete dedication.  The books, the discussions, the journal assignments, they have all taught me so much and have given me so many aha moments. 


I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity the class has provided to bring such meaningful connections to my life. So much of my learning comes from hearing the amazing women in the class share their stories.  The class has given me new perspectives that make so much sense and that are helping me take better care of myself and be a better mom.  I know this is work I am going to be doing my entire life but I feel the path to do so is so much more clear and solid because of this experience.

A Note from Kristen

As the leader of this Master Class, I have seen countless moments of clarity and new awareness. As each participants comes to know and understand the experience of being awake in her life, to actually seeing that they have waaaay more control over how they feel, what they think and how they respond to the people and circumstances in her life, a lightbulb goes off that can never be turned off. 


It's an absolute privilege to see this growth and evolution right before my eyes on our group calls together and during one-on-one sessions. 

- Kristen
