Falling Awake

Falling Awake

What could your life look like a few months from now or a year from now?

Falling Awake is a life-changing process of awakening to what a wonderful life you have, to what else you want in every area of life for the rest of your life and beyond (your legacy), and to the many practical ways in which you can create the future you want. This process is designed to move you closer to your definition of success even if you don’t yet know what you want.

Please play the video above where Dave overviews our program.

The Falling Awake programs are for anyone or any organization that has the goal of producing breakthrough results while leading a balanced, enjoyable, and wonderful life.  Dave Ellis presents ways to do so in concrete, achievable steps.

The Purpose

The Falling Awake Workshop is a time away from your normal activities to ask and create answers to the life-altering question: “What do I really want?”

We know how challenging it can be to figure out what you really want. This workshop supports you to answer this question.

You will see more clearly what is next for you in your professional and personal life.

Overview

The Falling Awake Workshops are each unique and are available to everyone. They are also part of our 6 to 9-month Intensive course.

This 2 ½ day retreat creates a fun and safe environment for your growth. We provide information and exercises to engage your imagination and to assist you in improving your life by your definition and by your design.

During this interactive experience, you will go through a series of activities where you will uncover your deepest wisdom.

This workshop revived me, and allowed me to let go of a lot of deep-seated grieving I had for human suffering that I had seen through my work. That was an incredible experience that I had never anticipated.
