Elevate Consciousness and Communications

On our first initiation of the Hero’s Journey, “The Road of Trials,” we are taught to question our thoughts, be proactive, and focus on what we want to become, rather than overcome. Through quiet reflection, personal and ancient stories, visual images and affirmations, you can learn to:

  • Break your identifications with mind
  • Know rather than believe
  • Understand your unconscious patterns
  • Reprogram the inner saboteurs and mental habits
  • Empower the Creators
  • See others as brand new
  • Ignite the Watcher and mindfulness
  • Listen receptively and empathically
  • Communicate benevolently, non-violently, and effectively
Read the Book


Awaken From Mind is about breaking our identification with the mind and its habitual patterns. We’ll be guided to be proactive and focus on what we want, rather than on what we don’t want. In other word, we use mindful techniques so we can use the mind as a tool and not let it be our master. This is both are our greatest learning and our biggest trial.
We deal with the First initiation of the Hero’s Journey, where we encounter the Road of Trials. Through our many tests and ordeals, we learn to strengthen our thought processes, expand our sense of reality, and learn to communicate effectively and nonviolently with our relationships.

    Susan Campbell, Ph.D. Author of Getting Real, Saying What’s Real, and Five-Minute Relationship Repair

    “Awaken From Mind boils the spiritual hero’s journey down to its essence. Filled with inspiring teaching stories, real-life vignettes, and quotes from master teachers, author Karen LaPuma has put together a self-help program that guides the reader to transcend habitual mental patterns and identifications in order to embrace our true essence. She offers tools and practices for all phases of the journey—from admitting the need for change to learning to cultivate presence to co-creating our desired reality. It is such a comprehensive book—something I will refer back to again and again whenever Life’s challenges remind me that there is always more to learn.”

    “This book is a beautiful gift to the world! The presentation is quite unique and powerful. The many quote/photos create a visual image that go deeply in the mind and soul..

    “Brilliant! Delivers an appreciation and understanding of how to awaken! Karen’s creative eyes and colorful words bring a beautifully seasoned intelligence into wisdom, and the love of life into true passion and purpose. Like a magical bridge of generous, easily digestible teaching, it inspires and empowers us in a loving and caring way. And most importantly it “unleashes,” refreshes, and revives our soulful parts.”

    Deanna Nagle, Yoga Trainer, Leader of Woman’s Circle

    “Eye opening! I love the format of Karen’s books, plenty of food for thought without being overwhelming, Each of her books in the “Toolkit for Awakening” series helps us wake up from the trance we all tend to live in, so that we can live to our fullest potential. As a yoga teacher, I find her books really resonate with many of the teachings of yoga as well.”

    The author hopes to still our monkey minds, keep us consciously present and have us live as Goddess, Warrior, Hero. She tells great personal stories to back up her philosophies which makes the book both a fun and inspirational read.

Road Map

We are all heroes of our own life. If we depart from the known and say yes to the spiritual life, we will find support, despite the obstacles and unknowns we face. We are to convert the ego, heal our emotional past, break our misidentifications, and intentionally create.

Part I. Separating from the Past
1. Answering the Call to Adventure
2. Dealing with the Refusal to the Call (Ego, Beliefs and Judgments)
3. Opening to Supernatural Aids
4. Healing Emotional Wounds
5. Manifesting with Magnetic Creation

Part II Six Initiations whose directives tell us to:
1. Be proactive and focus on what you want.
2. Love and allow.
3. Beware of struggle and control.
4. Be responsible for our time, attention, and intention.
5. Make life sacred.
6. Be the change you want to manifest.

Part III The Return or Giving Back

The journey not only transforms us, but also gives us great rewards. We are to express ourselves and give back what we have learned to our community and our world.
