Stage 1 in Sweden
August 2021. Skeppsudden, Bråviken, Sweden
Stage 1 – the Initiation
The Awaken as Love Initiation is a journey open to everyone – it begins with a choice to go on an adventure that will expand you beyond the boundaries of your current existence. What will it bring to you? More awareness, more love, more inclusion, more juice to your life and more depth if you allow it.
This first stage is called “Initiation” because if you choose this then all your experiences up til now have led you to this point and you are obviously ready to step into a wider reality – in doing so you enter fresh and new, open to discovering more.
As you step into this journey you will encounter maps that help you understand the larger world and your place in it (this is beyond your imagination), tools which help you to play more fully in this world, embodied experiences which help you to anchor a new reality and finally ongoing resources which help to integrate and incorporate this into your life.
What is this Training?
During this course you will be held by 3 of the Awaken as Love faculty (and a full team of assistants) – they each come from different backgrounds but all are inspired to facilitate the evolution of humanity.
Riya is an artist. Known as a singer, activist but also awakening & sex coach, tantrica, vision quest guide. Trained by Amazonian Medicines, she is very connected to earth medicines and ceremonial spaces as well as to Tantra in the integrated version- initiated by Kaula Heart of All, and influenced by the Baul Mystics but mostly her Beloved James and their relationship.
She travels around the world, using her voice for singing and speaking, sharing her gifts with groups. She is dedicated to spirituality as much as she is to her “down to earth” life, contributing to the evolution that is happening now and as part of it she wants to bring balance and harmony in all the aspects of hers and others lives. www.riyasokol.com

Lin Holmquist is yogatherapist, yoga teacher, tantric body and energyworker and dakini. She started her journey on the shamanic path in the forrest with the stones and the lakes as guides. Later she dived in to the magic of the physical realms trough the body and the movement of life in it.
Lin is a proud mother of two children and she travels the world arranging workshops and festivals (including one of the largest Tantra Festival in Angsbacka) and to give private sessions. Her dharma in life is to open consciousness and awareness and to spread love in the world trough her work.

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 will I get from this training?
This certificated course will give you practical tools, maps and experiences to be able to embody a deeper understanding. These will include:
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.
It’s one thing to understand with the mind, and something completely different to have a knowing that comes from a deep experiencing of wisdom through the body. Being able to manifest inate creativity into the reality is a skill.
We will be resetting the experiences and patterns in the nervous system of the body. These have framed your experience of this world since birth. Imagine how your life could be filled with more ease, clarity and pleasure!
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.
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.
Through transmission we will be awakening our higher centres of knowing, expanding into a new operating system and accessing novelty from the cosmos.
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 also be eligible to attend the next levels – Deepening & Radicalization to eventually become an Awaken as Love Facilitator.
In addition 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 meeting a larger international network of practitioners and teachers to create and stay in on-going connection. We routinely give opportunities to Awaken as Love graduates to be part of the festivals we create.
