The key to making this work truly impactful and sustainable is to make it intensely personal and relevant for each individual, group and organization.
We’re steadfastly committed to developing and offering educational retreats, leadership development and consulting to individuals and organizations that seek to translate greater self-development into positive change in all areas of life.

The Warrior Monk Retreat
Now in its 25th year, this four-day integrative retreat has served as the foundational body of work that informs all of our work at Awakening Life. The core elements of heightened self-acceptance and awareness, mindfulness, transforming self-limiting beliefs and increasing passion and purpose have been brought to life in a sustained way for more than two thousand participants.
Warrior Monk II: The Art of Staying Awake
The work continues. A well-crafted intensive program staffed with highly experienced staff that holds participants where Warrior Monk left off. It focuses on the question “Do the choices I make and the path I’m on consistently enlarge my soul and this life, or conspire to make it smaller?”, and allows for more individualized and small group work. A six-day retreat that spans three months with rests between pre-work and the follow-up coaching.
Dan McKee and other key Awakening Life leaders have many years of experience facilitating unique and effective leadership development for individuals, groups and organizations. We only provide values-based leadership development services, utilizing the whole self approach.
All of our leadership work is created and facilitated around the core themes of: Authenticity, Courage, Practical Mindfulness, and Service to Others.
If interested, talk to us about your intentions and commitment to grow deeper leadership. We’re committed to making a difference through our own leadership. Our families, organizations and communities need all the whole-hearted and courageous leadership we can collectively bring forward.

Awakening Life’s Board of Directors, Advisory Board, and close circle of colleagues and friends have many decades of combined experience starting, leading and serving in critically needed non-profit work; past and current.
We’ve come to realize that our greatest contribution and impact is to occasionally offer the experience and tools we’ve developed in support of other not-for-profit service organizations. We work with their front-line leaders and care-givers to more deeply strengthen their gifts and support their ability to give without sacrificing their own lives and relationships.
From our own individual mission-based experiences and Awakening Life’s retreats and programs of personal growth and mindfulness-based purpose, we have tools and training to offer select organizations and groups.
Our areas of interest include:
- Those providing work and training for youth at risk
- Prison projects
- Social programs and leaders serving marginalized members of society
- Equity and multicultural awareness organizations
Please inquire if you’d like us to consider a project; we love to support those who so powerfully and compassionately serve others.
