Awakening of Love

A Revolutionary New Way of Living through Meditation,
Inspiration & Discovery

In-person Weekend Retreats

A Revolutionary Meditation Weekend Retreat

Discover the truth of who you are, and uncover the keys to living passionately, loving deeply, and being real.

The Awakening of Love weekend has been specifically designed to take you on a safe, supportive journey to discover your path and meet the REAL YOU. While shorter in duration than Path of Love, it is a powerful opportunity for self-discovery, and to connect deeply to your body, feelings, and aliveness.


Most of us long for intimacy, happiness, the confidence to live authentically, and to find freedom from our fears and self-limiting beliefs. But for all sorts of reasons, we feel disconnected from who we are and live smaller lives than we want.  We long for something more, but struggle to create change and break free from old, frustrating patterns.


During this weekend you can process past and current issues in a caring environment and discover your love for life…yet again! We work with a unique blend of psychology and spirituality, involving; group exercises, meditations which have been specially designed, the power of authentic sharing, embodiment practices including breathwork, and individual guidance and support from highly trained and qualified facilitators. You will get closer to knowing your authentic self – igniting your passion to realize your true potential and to live with an honest, open heart.


The real question is not whether life exists after death, the real question is whether you are alive before death.” – Osho

Are you ready for a taste of profound inner

Find yourself…and experience deeper meaning, connection and greater happiness at this transformational weekend retreat.

Healing can be a long, steep and winding path. Shadow work can be particularly treacherous and terrifying without proper support. My experience was the support provided by our facilitators and the love shown in everyone’s eyes was one of the most transformative, healing and integrating experiences on my long journey of healing. To see how much humans love each other in the messy, hidden parts of ourselves felt like liberation and Truth. I believe every human should have the opportunity to experience this.


Tina Olsen, Organizational
Culture Consultant & Coach, USA

This retreat held me for two days in a unique and powerful way. As a mindfulness practitioner I had no exposure to the work or the tradition previously and was really impressed with how deep it went. I feel stronger in my inner voice and my authentic self. Wonderful facilitators and life-affirming opportunity that I’m so grateful to have experienced.


Courtney Zenner Campbell, Grant Writer
and Non-Profit consultant, USA

I really enjoyed the experience and feel so blessed and grateful that I was doing the retreat at that exact point in time in my life. I knew I was going to learn and grow from the weekend but I truly came away recalibrated and with a greater sense of my life’s purpose & back into ‘myself’.


Elisha Hillier, Facility Support Coordinator, Australia

I signed up to the weekend retreat spontaneously and am so glad I did. In just two days I unlocked a big, old relationship dynamic issue I hadn’t been able to quite access, so I could bring it up to heal. I also had a big breakthrough in my career direction. Additionally, I have seen an area of my life where my fears have been holding me back tremendously, in self-expression, relationships and work, and since becoming aware am able to address this with self-compassion and courage. I will be doing the 7 day retreat to work on this in particular, as well as the other two issues I mentioned, which permeate everything in my life, primarily around putting myself out there socially and in my work.

Awakening of Love Patti Smith


Dig Below the ‘Fine, Thanks’ Façade & Awaken to Love

By Leonie Orton / Rebelle Society

Every second of every day there is someone somewhere in the world asking:


“How are you today.”
And someone answering:
“Fine thanks.”


Deep down underneath those well-rehearsed lines are two humans. Two living, feeling hearts reciting a mantra…


Here… Now… Here… Now…


What is Awakening of Love?

Awakening of Love is a weekend transformational workshop that gives a taste of the Path of Love process. It also serves as a great refresher for Path of Love graduates. During the weekend you can process long standing and current issues in a safe and caring environment and fall in love with life again. This process creates trust, joy and a deep sense of belonging and connection with others, yourself, and the world around you.

What happens during the group?

We work with unique exercises, individual attention from the facilitators, breathwork, and special meditations to help you discover ways to connect with your true essence and authentic self. While the approach is flexible to meet you where you are, the process is structured to provide a strong and safe container.

Are there any prerequisites for participating?

No – in fact this group is ideal for those who are interested in exploring personal growth work but are new to doing so in a group setting. At the same time the group also has something to offer for those who do have experience in group work and are looking for a deep dive into themselves.

Is this a therapy group or a spiritually oriented group?

Generally speaking, it is a spiritually oriented group but we also use several therapy methods and techniques which we have developed over the years.

Is Awakening of Love a confidential process? Will what I share or talk about be private?

The process is 100% confidential. Participants are contained in completely safe and confidential surroundings to share and expose their deep feelings and intimate aspects of their history. A commitment to confidentiality is taken by all participants at the beginning of the process.

What types of people do Awakening of Love and from where?

Since our first Awakening of Love weekend in 2002, we have welcomed participants from approximately 40 countries and in four languages, ranging in age from 20 to 84.

Can I attend with my partner or family member or friend?

Yes, you can attend the AOL weekend with partners, family members or friends, we just ask that you inform us during the online registration process.

Why do people choose to do Awakening of Love?

People choose to do Awakening of Love for many reasons. In general, people that choose to do Awakening of Love want to expand their inner selves, in the sense that they feel they are not living their lives to the fullest potential. Often in life we find ourselves shut down or closed off from our heart and in a state of hurt and protection. This can show up as heartache, blame, isolation, or resignation. People also come when they are happy, full of well-being and with a desire to deepen. The word and mystery of love also calls people to come.


This weekend will open you to work through internal barriers and awaken your heart. From this place of clarity, connection, and trust – anything is possible.
