Authentic Freedom Academy isn’t any old academic institution. We don’t teach history or ‘rithmetic; instead, we offer programs and services in support of your journey of self-actualization. The roots of our work are in education, psychology and spirituality and the pillars are mindfulness, creativity and active imagination. The end result is transformation and empowerment. No, this work isn’t for everyone….but it is for the strong and courageous, the brave and insane, and those who believe there is more to life than Kanye and Kim and what might be reported on Fox News. In short, Authentic Freedom Academy is a lot like Hogwarts. Let me show you how:
1) Here there be MAGIC!
Life is a miracle and fantastically magical. Our desire is to help you see that magic!
2) We solemnly swear we are up to ALL GOOD!
To those attached to status quo, things as they are, a fearful, materialistic world, then it might look like we are entirely up to no good…….but for those with magic in their hearts and who can see past the illusion…..it’s all good!
3) Mischief Managed! Every day.
Giving you the tools you need to overcome the inner and perceived external obstacles to your own magical magnificence!
4) Platform 9 ¾:
The only way to get here is to close your eyes, point your luggage cart in the direction of that brick wall in front of you, run and TRUST.
5) Defense Against the Dark Arts:
Yes, there is darkness in our world. Fear too. We help you name those fears and give you tools for transcending them.
6) Lord Voldemort:
We all have an inner adversary – that voice of fear that keeps us small and seeks to keep us from the magical purpose for which we were born. We help you distinguish this voice from the voice of your Truth and give you tools for quieting “He who must not be named” so that you can hear the still, quiet, voice of your own SOUL.
Through mindfulness, creativity and active imagination practices, we help you remember and retrieve the forgotten pieces of your Soul.
8) Fantastical Creatures:
Why can’t there be dragons, pixies, mermaids, talking pictures, griffins, giants and shapeshifters? In the world of magic….all things are possible….and everything we can imagine is here to teach us about ourselves. Here, we embrace them.
9) Professors McGonagall and Dumbledore:
Each and every person is uniquely gifted and called to be a source of love and transformation in the world. Our teachers and guides are here to help you find yours.
10) Harry Potter of course!
We all need our heroes – those who have gone before us in search of their inner treasure and who have found it. We look to the great spiritual teachers of our human (and non-human) past to learn how to get there!
