Awaken as Love Stage 1

Buy Tickets Here:

The Awaken as Love Initiation is a journey open to everyone – it begins with a choice to go on an adventure that will expand you beyond the boundaries of your current existence. What will it bring to you? More awareness, more love, more inclusion, more juice to your life and more depth if you allow it.

This first stage is called “Initiation” because if you choose this then all your experiences up til now have led you to this point and you are obviously ready to step into a wider reality – in doing so you enter fresh and new, open to discovering more.

As you step into this journey you will encounter maps that help you understand the larger world and your place in it (this is beyond your imagination), tools which help you to play more fully in this world, embodied experiences which help you to anchor a new reality and finally ongoing resources which help to integrate and incorporate this into your life.


Tantra Techniques

How can the energy of the raw animal self be raised into higher consciousness, and how can this consciousness descend into the body and manifest world? Really this is a deep intimacy with yourself, with a partner and even throughout a group.

Embodiment practices

It’s one thing to understand with the mind, and something completely different to have a knowing that comes from a deep experiencing of wisdom through the body. Being able to manifest inate creativity into the reality is a skill.

System Reboot

We will be resetting the experiences and patterns in the nervous system of the body. These have framed your experience of this world since birth. Imagine how your life could be filled with more ease, clarity and pleasure!

Shamanic Initiations

We will be performing ceremonies that take you outside of the normal sequence of time and anchor in soul pieces that have been waiting for this moment.

Integral Maps

As we learn these maps – the whole picture is revealed and we suddenly start to understand where pieces that you were partially aware of fit inside a larger picture of reality.

Wisdom Transmission

Through transmission we will be awakening our higher centres of knowing, expanding into a new operating system and accessing novelty from the cosmos.
