from the You, Awake Team!

We Invite You to a Two-Part Offering:


Hosted by 7-time Emmy award-winning composer, Gary Malkin, with featured guests: singer/songwriter, David Wilcox, Aditi Sethi, and Hope Fitzgerald. This special evening will touch, inspire, and empower you in a community of kindred spirits sponsored by Asheville’s Center for Conscious Living and Dying.


The following day that will restore your vitality as you awaken to your capacity to navigate Change, Growth, Life, and Death. By blending music, contemplative practices and interactive exercises, this workshop encourages emotional resilience, empathy, and spiritual depth through an experiential Four-Step Process to:

A Journey of Resilience

A journey of healing and self-exploration as you bravely confront past wounds and sorrows with compassion. Through introspection and resilience, uncover the comfort and personal growth that come from facing your emotions, guiding you towards inner peace and renewed strength.

Acceptance & Forgiveness

an empowering journey of self-discovery as you embrace acceptance and forgiveness, guided by the warmth of compassion. With each step, releasing resentment ignites a newfound sense of inner peace, paving the way for genuine self-appreciation and a journey filled with hope and passion.


Embracing Life’s Uncertainties

Confront the uncertainties of the future and the reality of mortality with courage and introspection, acknowledging life’s fragility. Reflect on the existential questions that arise, seeking solace and finding meaning amidst life’s impermanence.


Embracing Life’s Marvels

Reconnect with gratitude and joy as you appreciate the marvel of life. Delve into the richness of existence, finding wonder in its simple yet profound moments. Let the beauty of life’s intricacies bring a sense of warmth and contentment to your heart.
