On Campus Program

Awakening Magic


Do we have the right to awaken our dreams? What drives our hunger to dream big? Are you prepared to follow the voice that only you can hear? Asking these questions, and honoring their answers, is a sacred process that ignites our power and heals what silences us.

Join scholar and humanitarian, Dr. Tererai Trent, and critically acclaimed author and storyteller, Elizabeth Gilbert, as they guide you to find your own place of creative and regenerative freedom. Drawing from indigenous wisdom rooted in lived experience, modern research, and daily rituals—and through the inspirational stories of their own daring and adventurous lives as well as the exercises that have helped them find their own internal guiding voices—Tererai and Elizabeth offer participants a powerful lens through which you can awaken the magic of who you are. You will 

  • Explore and embrace fresh ideas
  • Discover or reawaken your dreams
  • Identify the greater meaning of your life
  • Learn from the collective feminine and share your unique gifts
  • Find the resources necessary to make your magic dream a reality.   

Creativity happens when we drown out all outside opinions, noise, and influences, and follow our own inner guidance system—even if it leads us to make choices that our family, friends, and culture might not understand. Healing requires the same fierce energy and a willingness to access a deep inner “knowing” that can best be reached through mystical avenues and spiritual courage. Together, we can dream our way free.
