My last Waking up Weekend was a totally awesome weekend. As always, the atmosphere in the room was electric, heated, calming and loving. I had the opportunity to focus on what I had to change in my life so I can lead a healthy happy life. I also got the opportunity to reconnect with my brother, on a social level.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from the weekend, but decided to approach it with an open mind and give it 100%. Waking up Weekend changed everything for me – all aspects of my life. I didn’t believe this would be possible from just one weekend. If you want to change your life, you should try it.

My life totally changed following the weekend. My relationship with my parents was fraught before and it improved afterwards, my marriage became re-energised. My job offered me new opportunities. I took charge of my life and I’ve now created a life that I love! All thanks to the Waking up Weekend!
Ursula (50), Project Manager
Before I did the Waking up Weekend I was estranged from my parents. The first result I created after the weekend was a beautiful reconciliation with them. In just a few days I had moved from blame to love.
Ann, Designer and Author
I changed my career, found happiness within me, had adventures and learned to develop my creative self. I discovered all of this through the Waking up Weekend. A key concept I learned was that I had to stay true to the person I am.
Jenny, Art Historian
I’d reached a point in my life where I wanted to understand more about why I made certain decisions and mistakes. I went along to the Waking up Weekend on the recommendation of a trusted friend and my world opened up. The work I did over the next two and a half days enabled me to make sense of how I worked and to take control of my future.
Simon, Social Work Manager
Doing the Waking up Weekend was by far the most profound and transformative weekend of my life. To describe the benefits and impact of the weekend it has had, on all aspects of my life, would fill a whole book! In essence, I discovered and created for myself life peace, clarity, love and a wonderful and renewed connection to my family.
Deuan, Charity Manager
When I did the Waking up Weekend I realised that I wasn’t the only person who felt the way I did and at some level we are all the same. Because of this I stopped trying to be someone else and instead learned to be authentic.
Jonathan, Chartered Surveyor
I was born in 1981 and yet I only started living after 2012 when I attended Waking up Weekend. I’ve now awoken to the real world before me. Of course, I was in this world before the Waking up Weekend, yet I was fast asleep because I was unaware of my true self.
After attending the Waking up Weekend, I started to see that I’m the person who makes the choices. I’m the person who wakes up each day and decides if I’m going to be happy or not. I could finally see that blaming others for the reality of my life was an easy cop-out. Now I feel wide awake. I’m creating wonderful things in my life. It’s all about setting my mind to it.
The most invaluable lesson I’ve learnt from the Waking up Weekend is to love myself. I’m reminding my daughter Laila of the importance of this every day. The most important thing in life is to always love yourself.
