Approximate Time Commitment
The process and journey of awakening can be seen as uncrumpling a crumpled piece of paper (read this blog post for further insight). While there certainly can be transformative moments of deep shifts along the way, it really is a process and a journey. As such, the quality of “ongoingness” is a mandatory one, where we integrate the inquiry, practice, and self-awareness as a way of being. It takes a certain focus and attention that one brings into their daily life, and this is what the Awakened Living Program is built on.
Each of the 4 modules of the program is 3 months long and structured in the following manner:
[table id=1 /]
We are blending diverse models of delivery, connection, and practice. There will be monthly webinars for the whole cohort. There will be individual connection times, whether with each of the program facilitators, or among yourselves with your awakening buddy. There will be weeks of integration with no scheduled tasks or activities. There will be weeks with topics to explore together in online dialogues. There will also be weeks where there will be no tasks and you will be invited to take as much time as you can to be in silence and solitude.
Focused individual support by your program facilitators is an integral part of this process. You will receive two 1-hour coaching sessions (one with each facilitator) during each of the 4 program modules (8 sessions in total). These will be scheduled once the program starts. They are of dual purpose – to further support you in your learning with whatever is emerging for you at any point, and also for us to get a deeper sense of where you are on the journey.
Additionally, when we start the program, you will get partnered with another program participant. These peer relationships – an awakening buddy – will continue for the duration of the program. We expect you to connect on a regular basis (we recommend weekly or bi-weekly), check-in, explore what we are learning, and support each other on your awakening journey.
Upon successful completion of the program, you will receive a program Completion Certificate, of about 500 total hours of individual and group learning, training, and development.
