Midlife Awakening

Do you have the courage to revitalize your life, work, relationships from the ashes of a midlife crisis?


Are you suffering from:

  • feelings of emptiness or lack of meaning and purpose
  • failing health, joylessness
  • boredom in your intimate relationships
  • lack of ambition or vital life energy
  • overload and overwhelm
  • self-doubts & career disenchantment
  • unfulfilling relationships

Do you find yourself dreaming of a full life that is, at once, richly purpose-driven, abundant in prosperity, joy and passionate relationships?

Are you searching for a means to re-establish what modern science has confirmed to be the “interconnectedness” of all life?

And … a lifestyle and career that directly or indirectly involves giving back to humanity?

Perhaps you are stressed out, feel stuck and have lost the dream of your life: meaningful work and success with purpose attached to it – a joyful life of passion and no regrets.

Perhaps you are not spending enough time with your family.  You may feel that you are not having enough fun. You may be lacking quality leisure time or you might have problems sleeping or eating. Maybe you feel dissatisfied and disgruntled with life and you are at a loss as to what to do about it.

Maybe you are disillusioned with your career or your relationships seem like they are falling apart. You may be starting to have health issues or have a chronic and nagging condition that won’t go away. You may be completely overloaded. Or it may seem that every time you turn around, there is something else to do.

Perhaps you are one of the lucky ones that are earning a good income. But, you are paying the high price for that income by working too many hours in a high stress job. On the other hand, you may be someone who is struggling to make ends meet. You maybe asking yourself if this is all there is to life.

Maybe you are feeling guilty because you are not contributing – in some meaningful way – to something larger than yourself. Maybe you have been blessed with a good family, health and financial success but have yet to find a noble project that could truly benefit others in a meaningful way.

Or because you are in midlife, you realize that time is precious and you want to make the most of life but fear there is no time to follow your dream.

“I was living my life for everyone else – trying to create the perfect family.  Life has its way of turning you upside down and making you look ridiculous for searching for something so impossible to achieve.  Nothing was “real”.  MTK helped to clarify for all of us what the REAL was and how best to achieve it.  Life has become much sweeter and more manageable.  Each of us can now focus on achieving personal goals that are totally within reach.  Wholeness and mindfulness are my mantras.   My life is an ongoing challenge and full of unexpected rewards. Thank you MTK for helping tounravel the mystery of it all.”

But what if all the above symptoms were actually the Dream of your life knocking on your door?

In other words, what if these symptoms are purpose driven and are actually inviting you back to your destiny, back to your dream of a full life that is, at once, richly purpose-driven, joyful, and passionate; one that is also genuinely grounded in making a meaningful contribution to humanity.

“Michael expertly coached me through a transition time in my life.
After a car accident, I fell into depression, feeling my body was broken and my career was finished.
Michael guided me to be compassionate to my aching body and emotions as I healed. He helped me to transform my experience from a bad event to a positive unfolding of awareness of myself and my body.
We explored my new life options to see how the event was actually a wonderful opportunity to re-design my work and clarify my truest calling. While being supportive and positive, Michael opened up possibilities for me to find my own answers and nurture my own healing. He helped me to focus on my strengths and gifts, and to be brave enough to follow my heart.
With Micheal’s gentle counsel, I looked into emotions that arose during this time, and discovered where my deepest core values stand.
I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Michael and experience the process of inner awareness and destiny fulfillment that he inspires.”

If you look deeply within your symptoms, you will discover what they are trying to tell you about the direction of your life.

It is never too late to transform your challenges into the “life of your dreams.”

“Working with Michael is adding a guiding light to your journey. Your path is illuminated and the purpose of your soul becomes clearer with each step.”

Just imagine:

  • You can have a passionate, balanced and healthy life and be making a meaningful contribution to the world
  • Your life can be purpose-driven and on track
  • You can live from a place of joy and depth
  • Your career can be meaningful and abundant
  • Your relationships can be passionate, authentic and satisfying
  • You can have a rich soulful life that is also financially successful

You can have all of these things and more.

“I was feeling like my ‘compass was spinning’….and something about MTK and his coaching methods really gave me a sense of the ‘real me’ that is there…things started to gel…and I started to feel more alive, less despairing and fearful, more ‘at home’ in myself than I have in a  very long time. Thank you…thank you!”

You don’t need to be hoodwinked into believing that:

  • the dream of your life comes at the expense of financial success;
  • relationships need to be compromised because of your compelling and ambitious dream;
  • time and energy are preventing you from achieving the dream that has been with you since childhood.
  • sacrificing self-care practices is the only means to a richly abundant and passionate life
  • that it’s impossible to live a fulfilling life yourself while making a contribution to others?

Coaching can help you create a passionate and full life that is, at once, richly prosperous and purpose-driven, joyful, and genuinely grounded in making a meaningful contribution to humanity while still honoring the responsibilities and choices that you have made in your life so far.

I have done it, and so can you…

10 years ago I was a single dad living in a one-room apartment, squeezing my kids in with me on weekends.

I was only working 22 hours a week. My social life was minimal and I felt as though life had failed me. Hopelessness was pushing me around. Self-doubt, relationship disillusionment, and ambition were at an all time low.

I felt like a failure.

Today I have my feet firmly planted in the Dream of my life.

I am thriving professionally and my contribution to humanity – empowering people to stand and live in the authentic dream of their life – provides a deep and ongoing experience of giving back to humanity.

But most importantly my life is prosperous, passionate, and “real” while being challenging in all the right places.

Now that I have my dream, isn’t it time you had yours?

Just as I have turned my own life around – by transforming my symptoms at midlife into the life of my dreams – I can help empower, train and coach you to fulfill the dream of your life. As a Midlife Awakening Specialist, I have worked with creative and successful people from all walks of life for the past 25 years.

“At 40, I was trying to make decisions.  Where was my life going?  What do I want?  What will I be doing when my children grow up and move on with their lives? I was feeling good about my relationship with my husband, my children and my choice of friends, but something was missing. My confidence was low, I was used to being alone, and I often questioned what my purpose was.

Michael sat with me and guided me through my thoughts, my excitement, and whatever I was tripping over.  We laughed along the way and he encouraged me to organize my dreams and focus on the direction I want for my life. The discussions I had with Michael were all about me.  Not the kids, not my husband, but me!  Who knew? I was still there, alive and well.

Michael has a way of drawing out all the stuff (?!), good and bad and helping you sort it out.  He has a kind and gentle nature and allows you to express yourself and dig deep.  He reminded me I am validated to express myself, live my life, have my own opinion and stand up for what I believe is the best life possible.

Now I know I definitely have something to “bring to the village.” Michael, you’re fabulous!  Thank you.”

“A year after graduating from university, I found myself at a personal and professional impasse. A teacher of mine referred me to Michael who helped me come to peace with the things that were pushing me around. I was able to articulate my desires and re-focus my attention on what’s most important to me; drawing from many different schools of thought and the wisdom of his own teachers, Michael helped me design a personal fraework that makes me more successful in my day to day life and lets me follow my dreams.”
