Dear RA Community. To be on the safe side we decided to cancel community night this coming Saturday. Sorry for the late notice and see you next month!



What would your life be like if you had said yes to that invitation, request, risk, leap that you rejected?  Many times, we say “no” to opportunities based on our historical experiences. What if we practice saying “YES” to everything, even to your own “No”. Come learn how to feel and engage with everything in yourself to be able to make powerful choices in the here and now. 


Radical Aliveness Institute practitioners and alumni lead Radical Aliveness Community Nights giving everyone the opportunity to jump in and get their feet wet. If you’re familiar with Radical Aliveness, here’s a chance to jump back in with new people.

We work with the body, deep feelings and awareness to support empowerment for self- responsibility and a radically alive life. 

Embodying the RA aliveness principles is foundational to our work. In 2020 the community nights will support you in knowing more about yourself and our work.

Each month you will have a chance to explore a principle in radically alive ways. The following month we will work with a topic that supports embodying that principle. 

 We create a safe space to explore, take risks, make mistakes, and connect to yourself and others in the community.  Feel your feelings, have fun, play, explore. Find out more about yourself and others. 

Come to one, come to all, tell your friends and experience the joy and aliveness of this amazing process. 

No prior experience is necessary – everyone is welcome.
