Evolutionary Education Embracing Spirit, Ecology, Community & Health
We are pleased that you are interested in learning more about our new educational intensive at the Awakened Life Project. We have developed this intensive as a response to the many people who are interested in joining the Awakened Life Project for a substantial period of time and who want to fully experience all the dimensions of what we have to offer.
We tried something new last year and it was a success so we will do it again this year. This intensive will begin a few days before our annual 10 day Evolutionary Awakening retreat. The retreat will be included in the Intensive. Once you read the information about the retreat you will see that we will go deeply into the fundamentals of what the Intensive is about. During the 4 weeks after the retreat we wil go deeper into each topic and continue the process that will have already begun druing the retreat.
See at the bottom of this page for prices and details.
So many people these days want to know how to live successfully in community, how to respond authentically and effectively to their personal relationships and the converging crisis in today’s society and how to actualize the inner calling that so many people are experiencing to reach for something higher. We ran this intensive in the Fall of 2012 for the first time and because of its remarkable success we have decided to offer two opportunities each year.
During this 6 week residential Transformation Intensive you will experience a high frequency field of spiritual awakening, creativity and evolutionary education in the context of community life. This Intensive is an immersion in an integral context of higher development in which important dimensions of what it means to be a human being are embraced. So if you are interested in a dynamic, rich and positively challenging communal experience which includes daily meditation, evolutionary spirituality, awakened communication, yoga, nature mysticism and permaculture then we hope you will consider joining us.
We feel that the best way for you to discover what this opportunity is all about is to hear directly from participants whose lives and been deeply impacted by their participation in a past Intensive here at the Awakened Life Project...
