The A L I V E elements

The ALIVE Experience is designed to fulfill on the 5 elements that are:

A - Adventure 

L - Learning

I - Inspiration

V - Vitality 

E - Elevation

Adventure -  When was the last time you tried something new for the first time? Do you find yourself wondering what happened to the fun and adventure in life?

If you’re bored of the same trips with the same experiences, this is your opportunity to try something new where you can push your physical and mental limits and possibly even conquer a fear that’s been holding you back.

We believe in self-growth through adventure, exploration and play. The itinerary we’ve created is designed to push your boundaries and have you discover an excitement that’s been missing. 

During our experiences we offer activities like; surfing, kayaking, zip lining, ATVing, mountain biking and hiking.

Through sharing adrenaline inducing activities you develop a deep connection with others as you enjoy exhilarating and triumphant moments together. 

“It is only in adventure that people succeed in knowing themselves”

Learning - To live is to learn! We have brought together a panel of highly trained coaches and professional speakers who will share their genius with you. The workshops we offer provide knowledge on various topics and important aspects of life, such as:

  • Discovering your Purpose -  In this talk we explore the concept of purpose and meaning, integrating research on meaningfulness, longevity and positive psychology. Inspired by Viktor Frankl’s work on Logo Therapy, based on his research in the concentration camps of the Holocaust, we explore the importance of having a clear sense of purpose as the key ingredient to living longer, healthier, happier and more productive lives. Participants will leave with a clear life purpose statement and a new appreciation for the potential for aliveness that exists in each day.
  • Pursuing your Passion -  As much as research shows that having a clear sense of purpose and practicing servant-leadership helps people to thrive, there is always a risk of burnout, particularly when leaders are so mission-driven. In this talk we integrate research on positive psychology, flow, and practices of ancient wisdom traditions to help participants reconnect with the things that fill them up, so they may use this never-ending source of energy to fuel them in their work. We explore the principles of tapping into stillness and contemplation in order to tap into inner wisdom, and then using intuition to inform which people, places, things and experiences will bring greatest joy and, therefore, vitality to each person’s life. Participants will leave this session with an accounting of their core values and passions, and, through the partner coaching session, they will leave with concrete accountability to immediately integrate more of their passions into their daily lives.
  • How to train while traveling - Using the TRX suspension system and rubber bands you will learn how to do a full body workout anytime you’re traveling anywhere
  • Benefits of breath work - Chris Hawk will be leading a workshop on altering your mental and physiological state through breath work as well sharing information on mindfulness and elevating consciousness.
  • Contribution; Give to fully live - It is in our human nature to want to help others. True fulfilment comes from making a difference. Zark Fatah will share how contribution has changed his life for the better and how you can contribute to and make a difference for others. 

Inspiration - Do you feel stuck in life? Would clarity and focus help? Take a break from your busy life and immerse yourself in nature and re-discover the joy from the simple things in life. Re-connect with what truly matters to you and makes you feel happy and fulfilled. Stop wasting your time doing what you don’t love. It’s an incredible feeling to know that you can design your life and choose to be happy.

Vitality - Start each day with a new morning routine that has you on a path to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. You’ve heard about the benefits of yoga and meditation for years but haven’t quite found the time to start. Or maybe you’ve been skipping the gym more often than you go lately. This will be your opportunity to finally start a new routine that will benefit you in so many ways. Daily yoga and meditation sessions as well as group workout classes are an essential part of our program. During your week you will also enjoy delicious meals made with locally sourced, organic, fresh from farm produce.

Elevation - The intention of the ALIVE Experience is to bring together like-minded individuals who share the desire to live their best lives possible. You can look forward to creating new friendships while sharing life-changing moments together. Elevating your relationships, wellness, focus and aliveness is what we promise you will experience.

Eye opening, Awakening experience. Well-planned adventure activities and speakers. Great accommodation and food. Accommodating and attentive host. Thank you to Zark Fatah for a memorable experience. Forever grateful.
The Alive Experience was such a unique, transformative and unforgettable travel experience. I met the most amazing group of people who I now call friends. I never thought a group of strangers would impact my life the way they did. Every activity we did each day fulfilled a part of my life that was missing. I got to not only face my fears but also overcome them. The food we had was so delicious and healthy! The Alive team always made sure we had snacks for our adventures and we were satisfied with everything. I could sit here and type forever about how amazing this was and if I could give it more stars I would. They make you feel comfortable and safe. I learned so much from the workshops we had and from the group of people I was with. Things that I've now implemented in my life and already has helped me get on track to achieve what I want in life. Thanks to this trip I found guidance and a purpose in my life, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
