Workshop Objectives

Work on your relationship to yourself and explore relating to others in radically alive ways. You will have the opportunity to find what stands in the way of your full potential for life. And the best part is, you will experience the goodness and essence that lives beyond your most destructive patterns and expand your ability to meet the complex and multifaceted world in ways that benefit all.

Return to your life refreshed, wildly expanded, and fully expressive of all your gifts!


There is a state in which you are fully alive, authentic, and spontaneous. You are open to all of your feelings and connected to your strength and your truth. You are not afraid to know anything about yourself or about others. You seek out and value the diverse perspectives we all bring, and you actualize your creativity and meet life in all its possibilities. In this state you are a force of nature, a presence that helps life’s greatest potential to emerge. This is Radical Aliveness.

When we can be present with ourselves, not from a defended place but from a deeply healed and whole place, we can live the life we long for and be in the world in ways that create healing. To be able to stay with ourselves, we must experience all that we are – our pleasure and our pain, our love and our rage – all the messy contradictions that make us human.

The Radical Aliveness group process is unlike any work you have done before, demanding courage, committed engagement with others, and a strong desire to discover and develop yourself within an accelerated and intense timeframe and setting. In this container the patterns that keep you from living fully can come into the light and be transformed.
