Immersion Program...Alive. Wild. Free: Nothing Can Stop You Now w/ Mark Walstrom

  • Invenire 949 Wealthy Street Southeast Grand Rapids, MI, 49506 United States (map)

Dear reader,

This program is based on the following premise: The only real purpose of having this experience as a human being is to be a unique expression of the inextinguishable vital life-force in the world that animates all living things. Another way of saying this is...the only offering you can make to God or the world is your life...every breath, every word, every action, every gesture.

Our promise: We'll help prepare you to become a clear and open channel for this vital life-force that is known and described by many names. It will be an initiation into a new way of living that is profoundly simple, original, fearless, soulful and alive.

Alive. Wild.Free is about nourishment for the soul, spiritual awakening, expanding consciousness, the Heroes Journey,  a return to wholeness, metamorphosis, a personal pilgrimage to God. And it's NOT.

There aren't adequate words to describe what happens when a person learns how to let go and become a clear and open channel for life-force to move through them into the world. Call it love. Call it grace. Call it Christ-Consciousness, Call it the Force. Call it whatever you call it. But naming it only defines and limits it. It's more. 

If you're longing for the more...if you aspire to be the change you wish to see in the world... if you desire to discover your unique gifts and embody them daily, this is your tribe.

Each of us is a distinct being by nature. If we are open channels for the expression of vital life-force, we bring forth into the world fresh ideas, creative inspirations and generative actions that have never before been expressed and never will again. We'll have contentment knowing we lived a life of originality, held nothing back and left the world a better place. 

If there are internal blocks and barriers to being a clear channel for the life-force to move through us, then the world will never have the unique gifts that are only ours to give and we'll live life feeling incomplete, having been in the world but not fully engaged in all that was possible. 

Alive. Wild. Free: Nothing Can Stop You Now will be an incubator for individuals who want to emerge from the dormant state of auto-pilot living into the full expression of a life well lived. Participants will identify their personal blocks and barriers, unlearn conditioned ways of being, learn the art of discernment, and understand how to engage in fearless action that will be a generative force for positive change at a personal level and societal level.

While many personal growth and self-help programs are focused on how to find and improve your self, Alive. Wild. Free is about consciously and skillfully losing your self, and in doing so, gaining a clear sense of purpose as well as the experience of true freedom. This way of living is difficult to describe in can only be experienced directly.

Alive. Wild. Free: Nothing Can Stop You Now will meet as a group once a month (the 2nd Tuesday) from 6:30-8:30 PM. Each participant will also have ten individual sessions during the immersion time period. The group will be limited to 10 participants (some have already registered). The fee is $1,500.00. There is an application process, including an interview, to determine if the program is a good fit at this time.

In closing I leave you with a quote from the late Martha Graham, American modern dancer and choreographer:

You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you.

Keep the channel open. There is no satisfaction whatever, at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than others.

In the spirit of life,
