Awaken as Love - Initiation Training

23rd – 29th Aug 2019, Meeuwenveen, Holland

More than a Personal Growth retreat

Awaken as Love 7-day retreats are some of the most powerful ways to move out of just surviving life and begin to really thrive in it.  Not only will you embrace your authentic nature and passion but also how to bring this to life in an ever more complex and overwhelming world.

It reveals the “Master Map of Existence” – the full landscape of how reality fits together, that you might not have realised until now.

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” Albert Einstein

In fact it is not the next level of consciousness but the one after that which integrates the previous ones which will facilitate real change.

What is the purpose of this?

Awaken as Love retreats offer maps, tools and experiences from Tantra, Shamanism, Embodiment and Integral practices to take your life to the next level. It has been said that a quantum leap occurs in humans when they realise and embody the most recent unfolding edge of our consciousness named “Integral Consciousness”, and that it takes just 10% of the world population to steady themselves at this level to form a critical mass that will help bring the rest with them. And that the solutions to most of the world’s problems today reveal themselves.

These initiations are designed to jump-start your expansion into this level with the mission of helping that 10% emerge.

So, do you feel some truth in this – is there some part of your body that says yes even if your mind doesn’t understand?  If so then you are aligning to a mission of being an ambassador of planetary change – perhaps as an already existing teacher, guide or practitioner wanting to expand their influence or just one who hears the call.

Is this for me?

Regardless of your background, social status, profession or cultural beliefs – this is for you, a human being, alive in this existence. You can participate as an individual or also as part of a couple.

Who is holding it?

These retreats in Holland are lead by James Stevenson with Puja Love and Riya Sokol – international facilitators from Awaken as Love with a team of assistants who are there to help support you through the process – click here to learn more.

Where is it?

The retreat is held at Meeuwenveen – a beautiful retreat centre set in the countryside of Holland with incredible forests on the doorstep, quality workshop spaces, sauna and healthy vegetarian food. The same venue as the Tantra Festival preceeding it.

What will I get from these retreats?

These certificated courses will give you practical tools, maps and experiences to be able to embody a deeper understanding. These will include:

Tantra Techniques

How can the energy of the raw animal self be raised into higher consciousness, and how can this consciousness descend into the body and manifest world? Really this is a deep intimacy with yourself, with a partner and even throughout a group.

Embodiment practices

It’s one thing to understand with the mind and something completely different to have a knowing that comes from deeply experiencing and manifesting the reality of wisdom through the body

System Reboot

We will be resetting the experiences and patterns in the nervous system of the body that have framed your experience of this world since birth. Imagine how your life can be filled with ease, clarity and pleasure!


Shamanic Initiations

We will be perfoming ceremonies that take you outside of the normal sequence of time and anchor in soul peices that have been waiting for this moment.

Integral Maps

As we learn these maps –  the whole picture is revealed and we suddenly start to understand where peices that you were partially aware of fit inside a larger picture of reality.

Wisdom Transmission

Through transmission we will be awakening our higher centres of knowing, expanding into a new operating system.

How can this advance me working in these areas?

There are a few ways in which this training will support you in your journey as a guide, teacher or practitioner. It is an accredited course from Awaken As Love – you will recieve a certificate on completion and you can state that you have completed this training on your personal biographies. You will be listed on the Awaken as Love training website and also be eligible to attend the following stages – either Deepening & Radicalization to eventually become an Awaken as Love Facilitator.

You will be gaining direct tools that you can then use in your own workshops and practices as well as a deeper understanding about how to work with groups – and you will be meeting a larger international network of practitioners and teachers to create and stay in on-going connection.

Most importantly you will be connecting with some of the most prolific organizers of Spiritual Events on the planet. You can view more of the events organized by Awaken as Love on the main website We routinely invite teachers and practitioners to be a part of these festivals and will now be giving priority to those who have completed these processes.
