Awake In Love
What is the Awake in Love Project?
The Awake in Love project is fueled by love.
We are a "needs-responsive" organization and use our interconnection to meet the requests of teens and young adults who come to us for help. From filling out a job application to problem solving a social situation, we embrace the opportunities that arise. We encourage youth to take on a role of mentorship eventually, so that they can give back in the way that they received.
We believe in MENTORSHIP.
We believe in giving and receiving.
We believe in community and creating hānai family.
We believe in safe spaces to connect, heal and empower.
We believe that love is the most powerful force in the world.
About The Awake in Love family:
The Awake In Love project was born in 2020 while Anita and her family were living in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. There they found their soul-family, which included Fernanda and Juan Pablo. Awake in Love, Mexico was brought to life by Fernanda and she has raised the vibration with yoga, meditations, kirtans and other spiritual offerings that are derived from ancestral wisdom. Fernanda and Juan Pablo are currently also growing a beautiful, eco-friendly community outside of the city where they hold spiritual gatherings to "awaken in love". Please check out https://www.instagram.com/awakeinlove.om/ for the radiant energy of our sister project in Mexico.
The USA counterpart of Awake in Love was born shortly afterwards in Kailua-Kona, Hawai'i on Febuary 14th, 2021. Its focus is also to spread the vibration of awakening in love, with a focus on intention-setting and empowering youth. Anita's inspiration came from heart-opening experiences in her classroom at Abraxas Continuation High School (Poway, CA) where the stories of her students moved her to a deeper opening of the heart. Many of her Abraxas family members are members of the Awake in Love Project family. They support youth wellness in a variety of ways:
