Awakening to the New Year

Self-Paced Course

Available Now!

How many New Year’s resolutions have you made?

And more importantly, did they connect you to your deepest heart’s desire?

Joining a gym, quitting smoking, eating healthier, getting out of debt, being less stressed, volunteering, drinking less…all these intentions can be good, but do they lead to deep happiness and peace?

This new year, learn how to create conscious intentions rather than just one more self-improvement plan. Learn what stands in the way of finding true happiness and peace. Awaken to your true calling. Recognize yourself as the love and awareness that you are. Know the happiness and peace that you seek.

We have the power to create the life we want. What is your deepest heart’s desire?

Caverly Morgan will serve as your wise guide for this course. In this four-week series you’ll learn how to:

  • Create conscious intentions
  • Drop resistance and fear
  • Access effortless, awakened presence
  • Live from a place of unconditional love

Module 1: Course Foundations

In this first module, Caverly provides orientation to the course. She touches on what students will explore in the course, including:

  • Grounding in the present moment.
  • Investigating what gets in the way of our happiness and peace.
  • Exploring what disappointments we’re carrying from last year, as well as what we’ve learned.
  • Learning how to shift our attention away from limiting stories and beliefs.
  • Creating conscious intentions instead of resolutions or self-improvement plans.
  • Moving from fear to possibility.
  • Falling in love with life.

Module 2: Moving from Fear to Possibility

In this module, Caverly opens with a short, guided meditation. She then leads a journaling exercise, based on questions designed to help us deeply explore our experience—in the past year, as well as in the present moment. You’ll want to have your journal handy for these sessions. The module also includes a supplementary half-hour meditation with Caverly.

Some of the themes we’ll explore in this module include:

  • Learning to pay attention to self-talk.
  • Noticing how self-talk often keeps us trapped in fear.
  • Recognizing when we’ve moved into an experience of fear and isolation.
  • Practicing opening our heart and connecting to possibility.
  • Moving from trying to control life to having a sense of openness.
  • Creating space for play and delight.
  • Resting in our own adequacy.

Module 3: Setting Conscious Intentions

In this module, Caverly leads an exploration into the difference between New Year’s resolutions and conscious intentions. Instead of creating another “self improvement plan,” you’ll investigate how to move towards your deepest heart’s desire from a place of openness rather than fear. The module includes guided meditations, inquiry questions, journaling, and partner exercises. The module also includes a special teaching on reflective listening, and a guided imagery meditation.

Some of the themes we’ll explore in this module include:

  • Deepening our understanding of our personal values, and what is most meaningful in our lives.
  • Exploring how we limit ourselves, and what unconscious paradigms we may have in place that contribute to that.
  • Creating personal reminders that reflect our deepest heart’s desire.
  • Honoring the learning that’s been part of our path in the last year.
  • Cultivating a universal “yes” to what is.

Module 4: Creating a New Paradigm

In this module, you’ll reflect on what you’ve learned so far. Caverly will lead you in creating a new paradigm and conscious intentions from the awareness you’ve developed throughout the course. The module also includes guided meditations, journaling, and partner exercises. You’ll want to have your journal on hand so you can look back through your notes.

Some of the themes we’ll explore in this module include:

  • Reflecting on what you’ve learned throughout the course.
  • Re-connecting with the reminders you came up with to support you in living from your deepest heart’s desire.
  • Developing conscious intentions that you would be inspired to live from in the coming year.
  • Creating accountability for your intentions, without judgment or a sense of deprivation.
  • Bringing your conscious intentions into the new year.
