Living Alive Phase I focuses on participants becoming aware of their patterns of behaviour and energy. Insights and skills are developed to help participants transform the patterns they wish to, and release blockages in their energy.


During this program, you will have opportunities to:

  • Know yourself and your patterns of behaviour more fully
  • Discover your own personal resources
  • Improve your communication skills
  • Explore your fantasies and imagination to make them work for you
  • Embrace the hidden aspects of who you are
  • Work in a group environment to learn new information about yourself
  • Incorporate increased self-awareness, interpersonal skills and insights into your daily life


Living Alive Phase I has been a life-changing program for people over the years. However, for some it is not easy to take 26 days away from home and work in order to have this opportunity.


So for the first time, in 2015, we are offering two ways to take Living Alive Phase I:


Living Alive Phase I Intensive


This 26-day program offers a wide range of experiences, in addition to presentations and discussion, in a safe and respectful environment. Participants work in large group and in smaller groups, and also have the opportunity for individual appointments with the program leaders.

Living Alive Phase I Integrative


The new Integrative format is designed to maintain a high level of integrity to the core components of the Living Alive Phase I program while bringing in new ways of delivering the experience through virtual learning and community.


Living Alive Phase I Integrative provides and supports unique opportunities to apply, challenge and integrate the program content. It allows for a sustained learning period while minimizing the time away from home.


The eight-month Integrative format combines three on-site modules, 4 to 8 days in length, with directed, intentional at-home work both individually and in virtual groups, supported by regular teaching and processing via video conference.


The format will include an online community; this web-based location includes all program materials, schedule, and online materials, as well as a private discussion forum where you can interact with one another and with your instructors.


In order to help you, and us, determine if you are a good fit for this type of program, there will be a short screening form which we ask you to submit no later than 30 days prior to the program start date. The program leaders will review your responses and you will then be advised whether the integrative format is a format that will work for you.


The first ever Living Alive Phase I Integrative will run from February to September 2015 and will be led by Susan Clarke and Toby Macklin. The dates for the onsite modules are: February 27 to March 7; May 18 to 22; September 7 to 11.


The tuition cost for Living Alive Phase I Integrative will be the same as for Living Alive Phase I Intensive. There will be an option to make monthly payments for the Integrative program.


Registration will open for Living Alive Phase I Integrative in November. If you are interested in the program and would like to be contacted when registration opens, please email:

My life has been completely changed by this program, for I have learned to live with Presence and Joy as I truly am.

RC, June 2013


I am far more self aware and curious about who I am, why I feel what I feel and do what I do, and what I want. I am living these questions rather than searching for the answers … Thank you for the most meaningful experience in my life. It truly prompted me, inspired me, and provided me the tools I need to transform my life.

GK, June 2013


… I also learned how comforting I find it to be in such an environment of communication and sharing - how much I love this.
