What is Courageous Awakenings™ ?

Discover Courageous Awakenings™, a facilitated group experience designed to address the growing need for connection.

In an era marked by an accelerating pace of change and an overwhelming flood of information, our connections to one another often suffer—becoming more superficial and increasingly polarized. At the heart of human experience, however, lies a fundamental truth: we flourish most profoundly when physically present with one another, in environments that foster genuine curiosity, self-exploration, and meaningful dialogue.

Courageous Awakenings is designed to counteract the noise of our times, creating a sanctuary where individuals can come together to rediscover the art of conscious interaction.

Courageous Awakenings is for anyone looking to truly connect with themselves and others. I designed this Circle of Trust® experience for those who’ve had life-changing realizations. This might be from a crisis, near-death experiences (NDEs), psychedelics, or sudden insights. It’s for people whose new understanding has shifted how they see reality and the world.

Participation in circles of trust meets participants’ needs for authentic connection, deep understanding, and personal growth by providing:

  • A stronger sense of purpose and integrity
  • Expanded capacity to be fully present to others in ways that affirm and heal
  • Increased skill in asking the honest, open questions that help others uncover their own inner wisdom
  • Greater confidence to seek or create communities of support
  • Increased understanding, appreciation, and respect for human differences, based in deeper awareness of of the identity and integrity of ourselves and others
  • Greater capacity to build the relational trust vital to healthy relationships, workplaces, and communities
  • More courage to live authentically
  • Renewed passion for their work or vocation
  • A deeper commitment to leadership and service to others

Join me on the second Wednesday of every month at the Carpenter-Carse Library in Hinesburg from 7:30 – 9:30PM.

Each month there will be a different theme. This first gathering on May 8th has the theme of “Listening Deeply.”
