How AwakenUp events are different

Cutting-edge success tools + Shamanism +  Ancient plant medicine 

  • Success Tools – Learn how your mind blocks you from achieving your Dream Life, and how to re-program it.  Transform through experiential learning – games, connection, being witnessed, sharing, relaxing.
  • Shamanism – Reclaim your power to trust and surrender in rituals, guided journeys, soul retrieval, and initiations.
  • Plant Medicine – This visionary teacher from the Amazon opens pathways through your deepest blocks – awakening your intuition, hidden capabilities and joyful self expression

Octavia Brooks, Shamanic practitioner and Awaken Up facilitator, is a master in personal development and Shamanic healing during plant medicine ceremony.  Octavia’s playful, experiential teaching style is proven to help you transform and learn success tools faster.  Plant medicines help you in a thousand ways to overcome limitations and fill your emptiness so you can operate life from wholeness.  In just a few days, re-program yourself for success by shedding baggage, fears and blocks that would normally take years.  As your vision quest unfolds you will fully reclaim the New You who can create your Dream Life.


Head-Heart-Soul Experiential Learning Flow
(CLICK HERE for detailed itinerary and list of classes)


In this phase of the week, find out how our minds are programmed from childhood to limit our success in life, and how we can re-program ourselves to enjoy the freedom we desire.  Freedom from limitation = creating a bigger positive impact on the world. In ceremony, accelerate your learning and heal your mind.

Heart and Body

Emotional and physical well-being are the foundation for a happy life.  Release difficult emotions and reclaim your empowerment from life’s traumas.  Trust again.  Engage with the sacred beauty of your body temple.  Connect.  In ceremony, open your heart wider and heal your body.


Unwrap your innocence and invoke your playful and powerful inner child, who knows how to create and manifest your Dream Life.  You are a Divine Creator – learn to live from this knowing to create your Dream Life.  In a daytime ceremony, explore the ecstatic states of creating your Dream Life.
