Awaken your life 

200-hour Coach-Teacher Training

Seek + Learn + Serve

The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.
— David W. Orr, Ecological Literacy

Awaken Your Life Pilgrimage is the only program that serves as an intensive and a certification. AYL is a 200-hour training for people ready to serve in a deep and impactful way. This pilgrimage is a year dedicated to walking your path and learning how to teach the path to others. 

The most powerful way to effect change in the world is not by collecting students but by creating masters. This is a master's program. Upon completion of Awaken Your Life, you will have mastered the art of creating your best life, and you will also be fully prepared to teach and facilitate the AYL curriculum in your own work.

You will experience & learn how to facilitate:

A total life transformation from the inside out. Radically heal old stories and open new possibilities for yourself and those you work with.
Powerful communication through coaching and the art of intuitive listening, a skill that can be used in any relationship.
How to translate your entire pilgrimage into a teaching and leave your own mark on the world.
And so much a crazy amount more.


  • You're a coach, healer, yogi, fitness pro, consultant, artist, CEO, entrepreneur, or anyone who feels called to serve at a deep level and live authentically.

  • You're interested in more than knowledge: you're interested in a hands-on exploration of self-mastery.

  • You're ready to spend a powerful and intimate year on pilgrimage with a small cohort of like-minded people.

  • You've wanted to become a Certified Coach but haven't found a program that slows the pace for certification.

  • You're intrigued by the challenge of introspective work at this level.

Registration for 2017-18 is closed

There is no one that I would rather learn from this year and I am so damn proud of myself for trusting myself and saying YES to this experience in the face of the fear and doubt and unknown.

I absolutely LOVE this work, talking about transformation, how to change and improve our lives and help others do the same. Thank you for believing in yourself enough to say YES to creating this and making it a reality. If anyone is considering joining for next year and wants to talk to someone who is currently going through it - I am more than happy to do that for you. I learned so much this week and I also had an amazing time with a community of inspiring humans.

You teach the way I learn and that is also huge for me. Sitting in hotel conference rooms and online courses I am realizing are not my jam. Sitting in a beautiful retreat house with a view of the ocean, eating amazing food, having inspired conversations, getting to dive in and ask all the questions - THAT is how I learn and I am so grateful to have a teacher who gets how people learn AND knows how to teach, guide, inspire and integrate the learning. You are so freaking good at what you do and I just wanted to say THANK YOU.

This is a 200-hour life training and is applicable no matter your industry. As a Certified Awaken Your Life Coach & Teacher you can host retreats and workshops, coach AYL programs and groups, work with private clients, or add the curriculum into your knowledge base and expand on the results you currently get with your clients and within your industry.

I learned that to spend an entire year on self-development and exploration is the biggest gift I can give to myself AND others. I learned that my desire and courage for knowing myself more deeply, having compassion for myself, and loving myself more is not only my personal work but it’s ALSO my teaching. It’s what I desire for everybody else too.

I wanted the opportunity to go into all these topics at a much deeper level, to do the inner work for myself, to get the support I need through it, and to be able to do this same kind of work with other people. I didn’t think I could have both the personal transformation exploration AND come away with the teachings to be able to do it with others until now. I feel like this is the best form of education anyone could ask for!
