Healing From the Past, Knowing Your Place in the Present 

Brings A Mindful & Conscious Future.


Mindful Workshops for Parents & Professionals

Moving into the 21st century, our pace of life has changed dramatically. The rate-of-living increase has led to dysregulation and fragmentation within our children, showing up as ADD, ADHA, behavioral issues, depression, and anxiety. As parents and professionals, we can feel depleted in resources as we attempt to guide our children through overwhelming moments.

In this workshop series, we gain deeper awareness around how our pace of life effects the growing child, while receiving practical tools for holding mindful space so the child can be present with his or her experience. This conscious approach not only empowers you as the parent or professional, but the child as well!

The opening night lays the foundation for understanding 21st-century findings through epigenetics, neurosciences, pre & perinatal birth psychology, attachment theory, and cultural myths. The following mindful workshops deliver critical education in understanding the child’s social nervous system: What it means for the system to be dysregulated or fragmented, and how to assist the system to move into a functional range through mindfulness practices. Also, we have added a day just for the fathers and partners, to give support and understanding for what it means to be a dad in the 21st-century.

Dates & Times: TBD (Fall series coming soon!)

Fee: $35.00 per workshop & opening night

The Awakened Teen Circle​

The Awakened Teen Circle is a place that holds safe space for teens to explore what it means to be whole in the 21st century.  Gain insight, confidence, and peace with the tools and resources to navigate these often-murky waters.

The Awakened Teen class series holds safe space for teens to explore and identify with what it means to be a whole teen in the 21st century. Modern life moves quickly; between social media and pressures to succeed many teens feel stressed and fearful, perhaps struggling with self-esteem, anxiety, depression, or performance. The Awakened Method gives teens the tools and resources to navigate self-development with powerful awareness as culture creatives. Gain insight, confidence, and peace. Grounded in pre-& perinatal birth psychology, somatic therapy, mindfulness, and experiential learning, this dynamic class changes lives from the inside out.

The Awakened Teen Method works with 7 mindful principles:

  • Grounding
  • Flowing
  • Empowerment
  • Loving
  • Communication

Awakened Method Certification Program™

Expand Your Practice with East Meets West Somatic Experiential Learning, 

With A Foundation In Pre & Perinatal Birth Psychology.

The Importance of Mindfulness

For Birth Practitioners, Yoga Teachers, Medical Practitioners, School Teachers, Holistic Health Practitioners and Self-Explorers

Your journey to this point in life has been filled with joy and trauma. Awakening happens when we allow ourselves to integrate the trauma. All of our journeys start the same: with birth. From there, however, our stories become very different. 

    Imprinting from the womb environment through the first years of life lays a foundation for all future relationships: interpersonal, family dynamics, and worldview.  The Awakened Method holds space from the birth story, allowing dysregulated and fragmented aspects to come into coherence. When this happens, we are able to live and experience life to the fullest.

Join our foundation I in July & foundation II in August to deepen your practice and rediscover your story. (Both foundations I & II are a continuation of the whole, with ongoing monthly support).
