The Come Alive Course Offering

Get ready to embark on a transformational journey with the Come Alive course – the ultimate guide to unleashing your inner potential! We’ve all heard the age-old advice to “look within” to discover ourselves, but let’s face it, it’s not as easy as closing your eyes and taking a few deep breaths. When you try to peer into your inner world, it often resembles a tangled jungle of thoughts and emotions, right?

In today’s fast-paced world of “bigger, faster, more,” we’re all seeking quick fixes. If you’re looking for a course promising instant productivity, organization, confidence, or a personal rebrand, you’re barking up the wrong tree. There are plenty of courses out there for those needs, but here’s the catch: most of us have deeper desires that can’t be solved by simply tidying up our external lives. It’s like renovating your house when the foundation is crumbling beneath you.

Now, let’s get real. Have you ever felt like you’ve followed society’s checklist for success – the right schools, the right degrees, the right career, the right home, the right social status – and yet, something profound is still missing? Do you sense that you’re destined for more than your current existence? Are you trapped in a never-ending cycle of exhausting, stress-inducing work in the hope that someday you’ll attain your dream life? Do you feel like there’s a gaping chasm between how the world perceives you and how you perceive yourself?

If you’ve nodded in agreement to any of these questions, you’ve landed in the right place. And if you’ve emphatically said yes to all of them, well, don’t even think twice – enroll in this course immediately! Why, you ask? Because our marvelous minds are wired to handle a lot, but they’re also experts at self-sabotage, doubt, and yes, mind games that hold us back from reaching our full potential. Still skeptical? Google it. Numerous studies reveal that a whopping 80% of our thoughts are negative, and 90% of them are on an endless loop. In simpler terms, our minds are like washing machines churning out negativity, causing us to distrust and question everything.

Our brains are wired to protect us from danger, whether it’s real or imagined. While this is fantastic when you’re about to be run over by a car or plummet off a cliff (real danger), it’s not so great when you’re on the verge of trying something new or letting someone in (perceived danger). So, here’s my fervent recommendation: shake up that ever-doubting mind of yours and take a fearless leap into this course!

In the first half of our six-week Come Alive course, you’ll learn how to rise above the weight of life’s burdens and reconnect with your inner star – that inner flame extinguished long ago (for most of us, before age seven). In the second half, we’ll guide you on a journey to live, love, and create from your truest core – paving the way for lasting contentment, genuine freedom, and boundless inner strength. You, my friend, deserve nothing less! It’s time to Come Alive! 🌟

Weekly Focus

Week 1: Mind Detox

We’ll kick off the course with a week of detoxifying our minds because the mind, as resourceful as it is, is also our biggest saboteur. Understanding the difference between our thoughts and awareness can lead to tremendous inner power and freedom. You will be given the tools you need to optimize your hardest working organ while not letting it get in your way.

Week 2: Heart Detox

Our hearts, also often referred to as our inner child, needs our love, attention, acknowledgement, and care. We often task our hearts with what our souls should manage and lead, therefore leaving it feeling confused, overwhelmed, lonely, and unseen. This week you’ll learn how to take care of your beautiful heart, create much needed boundaries for it, and teach it how to welcome all feelings.

Week 3: Body Detox

We all know we need to eat well, sleep well, and exercise but many continue to ignore and abuse their bodies by dragging it through whatever we may be going through – stress, overworking, insomnia, etc. In order to become truly aligned with our bodies, we need to shift our relationship with our only (sacred) vessel through this life. This week is all about accepting and loving your body regardless of your health, size, and age.

Week 4: Play

Multiple studies have shown the benefits of playing as adults. We stop playing as early as age nine and the lack of play leads to much of the mental health challenges we face as adults. Playing literally changes the neural pathways of our minds leading to much joy and contentment. This week you will learn how to identify your play personality type and play like your life depends on it – because it does!

Week 5: Finding Your True North

Now that we have learned how to take care of our minds, hearts, and bodies, we need to align them with our souls and let it lead the way. Our souls are our unique signatures in this universe but we’re also very connected and interlinked with everything else within our universe. This week you will gain a clear understanding about the difference between soul and spirit and how the two need to dance together for us to realize our greatest potential.

Week 6: (Re)Writing Your Story

The beauty of doing the work of the past five weeks is that you have cleared your slate, so to speak, to (re)write your life’s story as you wish. We often hear “follow your dreams” but we’re rarely shown how to do so. This week, you will be guided through a proven method to discovering your raison d’etre (reason for being) in order to live a powerful and rich life of your own design.

Course Testimonials

Praise For FREE TO BE

A Course For The Ultra Busy

Many people believe that in order to work on ourselves, we have to dedicate large amounts of time and go elsewhere (retreat, therapist’s office, monastery, ashram, etc) in order to do so. That belief hinders many to do the work of the work. The Come Alive course is intentionally designed with the time-starved person in mind so you can integrate it easily into your daily life whether you are a busy parent, an entrepreneur, an executive, and/or have to work on-site. This self-guided course can be completed at your pace whenever and wherever you are. Our recommendation is to complete the course in the six week period but you can move as fast or slow as you need to.
