like 10 years of growth
DEEP SELF WORK.
Class of 2020
Class of 2021
If you’ve made it here, then you must be ready.
Ready to talk Truth.
To see through pop health knowledge and sales pitches.
To realize the distraction of “precision medicine” and remember that your body can heal itself.
This is a different world than those you’ve walked before.
We don’t play by the rules of Capitalism, constipation or corruption.
We don’t invest in marketing or make a pretty-packaged outside.
We are real.
Welcome to the orbit.
THE INSTITUTE FOR ALIVENESS
"In the world of the future... a measure of aliveness will be our currency... the only inspiration to set us free. Thus? All that's worth investing in is thee."
THE INSTITUTE FOR ALIVENESS was born out of moral imperative. When our Founder tried to leave her career in health, she realized that no one was doing what she was: full spectrum Applied Epigenetics. From sexual health to self-conversation, lifestyle design to integrative relationship rebirthing, discussion on the power of psychedelic therapeutics to global impact… and of course keeping open commentary on all things Political Economy, food systems, capital incentive structures, the modern health system and more. Lest we not forget about hydration and pooping too. Oh - and the most important part of all? Our own ability to quell our nervous system, find calm and quiet the incessant anxiety that plagues our disconnected species. That. That’s what TIFA is here to bring forth.
Parsed into three monumental semesters and one 6-month practicum, this 18-month course is lightyears ahead of anything currently on the market. The container for growth, the (at times over-)stimulating curriculum, and the giant mirror held up to keep you real in your transition. This level of accountability is second to none.
Would you want to see a coach who paid $300 for a 20-day online course? Neither would we. This dual life coach - health coach certification program is here to fill the gap in full-spectrum healing/embodiment (two sides of the same coin). We are birthing the Docteurs of the Future. Part think-tank, part certification body and part research Institute, we build a better future: today.
Our WHY? Because our species has never been at such a trivial point in time. From climate destruction and impending natural disaster to political shenanigans and nationalized polarization. In late stage Capitalism, the minute our health and food became commodities, the human species lost.
So, no, this is not The Institute For Integrative Nutrition. This is much more. In fact, we tend to think nutritional science is bullsh*t.
Come inside to find out more.
We guarantee to blow your mind with new ways to look at the world, the human body, oh, and of course… yourself.
Enrollment opens JULY 1, 2021 for Jan 2, 2022 intake.

“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”
- Jiddhu Krishnamurti
To birth the next generation of health revolutionaries and applied epigeneticists. Empowering people to take their life back
into their own hands. Will you join us?
We envision a world where humans thrive, not just survive. No more depression or anxiety, broken relationships and childhood trauma. No more sniffles or cancer. People re-connect to their bodies, learn practices of right living, and collectively we reverse the oncoming skyrocket in lifestyle-related disease and the decline of our species.
WILL YOU BE THE NEXT
We only welcome incredible people into our fold. TIFA is a community who will hold you in your growth… and witness your development in becoming more than you ever dreamed you could be. Crusading forward, we spread this message of human potential worldwide.
This is a mission woven in empowerment. We remember the practices of right living, modernizing Natural Hygiene. In acknowledging how our body needs to be cared for, how we can use our mind for our expansion, and how we can reconnect to “Spirit,” the universal energy available to all of us.
The course itself IS the learning AND the lesson. The 500+ hours of content from incredible people walking their own paths of enlightenment and re-membering, is here to serve you in your own quest for inquiry and Truth. Have you seen the curriculum?
YOU WILL OWN THE INSTITUTE
If you haven’t yet heard... The business structure of The Institute For Aliveness is a cooperative.... meaning that when you successfully complete all requirements for graduation - most notably, showing up more fully / doing your own deep self-work (aka - coming out of the program a different person than who you were when you came in...) then you will receive co-ownership of a percentage of the Institute.
This is not a business where the founder makes a profit. This is a decentralized, community mission, where we can come forth, inclusively, gathering the tools, techniques and Presence for what it means for humanity to BE more. To live not from desperation, destruction and fear, but rather from re-connection, community and unconditional love. To get the most out of ourselves and our own growth - so we can share that with others.

She empowers her students to be the researchers and doctors of their own bodies, and she nurtures their curiosity and fascination along the way. She is truly an open vessel of fierce magic and wisdom, teaching us to embody the world that is our body; to appreciate that what appears to live outside of us may actually already be vibrantly alive within us."
