Only something extremely attractive, and particularly irresistible can move people from sleepwalking to being awakened.  

This course is a pathway to know about the greatness, aliveness, fresh feeling that awakening brings, the sense of everything being so brilliant, alive, fresh, and new, the sense of wonder and awe.  

I know many are looking for that feeling without knowing where to look.

I am NOT speaking about enlightenment or liberation, I am talking about WAKING UP.


When one’s shift from being a sleepwalker to being awake, the trees are greener, the air is cleaner, and the colors are sharper. Everything glows. It is this extraordinary feeling we all have after a big storm: the sun breaks through and everything feels so fresh and free and alive. 

That is our natural state, and it is time to remember.

Extraordinary Times

  • Why?

    We are going through a shift from Homo Sapiens to Homo Spiritus. We are awakening to the fact that we are in this world but not FROM this world.

  • How?

    It is possible to use the privilege of our five senses AND access authentic power, guidance and intuition from the spiritual.

  • What?

    We are participating in the most exciting, awe inspiring, extraordinary times of our human history. We are going through a systemic crisis indeed, but what if it was much more monumental than that?

  • It is time

    We are transforming, like a caterpillar in its cocoon that dissolves to become a butterfly. I do not think that the caterpillar, which dissolves completely into a sticky mass of various cells, is very comfortable either. Accepting this transformation can give birth to a butterfly. The alternative is to remain a caterpillar!

The Course is a work that's deep and like nothing else you will ever encounter on the planet. Disentangling your ego is the ultimate access to awareness. The opportunity to do this unique and important work with Sophie is intimate and deliciously confronting. I highly recommend it if you want to unearth and gain access moment by moment to being in your soul's essence rather than being run by your ego. Love you, Sophie!

Sophie … you stood next to me on the edge and showed me how to open my eyes. Then you inspired me to embrace life, not fear the fall, and jump. I did – and I flew. I thank you for awakening me so I could create a place where I understand the difference between being alive and living.



It has been my privilege to have known and worked with Sophie for many years and to have benefited from her vast experience as a leader, counsellor and inspirational speaker. Sophie excels at empowering people to be the leaders that they want to be and to underpin leadership with a set of invaluable skills and strategies.


Please know that when I see you, I am reminded of my complete appreciation of you: one wonderful, vibrant and truly beyond belief people and I am constantly looking at having to readjust my beliefs to provide the extra space to expand, as you do.

The Elegance of Simplicity

A Wisdom Teacher's Epic Journey to Consciousness

This is the story of an encounter between two women: one in search of answers, the other having already completed her spiritual journey. Guìa, the profound, whimsical character in the story, takes us through her passage into consciousness from pre-birth to enlightenment. As the riveting adventure of Guìa’s life unfolds, you will become one with the knowledge-seeking narrator and find yourself on a voyage of discovery into the nature of human beings that will lead you to the source of all we know and perceive. In this compelling book, the ancient art of storytelling is used to communicate life-altering concepts that challenge our tranquilized obviousness and propose a simple and effortless pathway to awareness.​​
