Workshop Objectives

Find what stands in the way of your full potential for life. Learn what it is to be “radically alive” and return to your life refreshed, wildly expanded, and fully expressive of all your gifts!


The 5 Radical Aliveness principles are: Cultivating a non‐shaming heart, Knowing you don’t know, Honoring multiple perspectives, Saying yes to everything, Be willing to be changed by your encounters.

There is a state in which you are fully alive, authentic, and spontaneous. You are open to all 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.

The Radical Aliveness approach to personal growth, spiritual development, and social awareness is a unique group process that welcomes powerful feelings and dynamic group interactions. We work with the personal, interpersonal, and systemic to invite profound healing on every level.

Participants will work with blocks to life, facing conflict head-on, and opening to the unpredictable energy of life. Everyone will be encouraged bring their voice, their energy, take risks, be emotionally honest to help build a dynamic group process where every member is an essential part of the whole. This process is unlike group work you’ve done before, demanding courage, committed engagement with others, and a strong desire to discover and develop your potential within an accelerated, intense time frame and setting.
