Meet Your Guide

Hi, I’m Erik, a certified mindfulness teacher, storyteller, and creator of Listen To Sleep, a top-rated sleep & meditation podcast with over 6 million downloads.

For almost 40 years, I’ve been approaching life as a hero’s journey.

What I found is that this timeless tale of self-realization can be used as a map to weave together our journeys through our inner and outer worlds.

It’s showed me that inner peace and worldly success both come from the same place—the most authentic expression of who we are.

Every Hero's Journey Starts In The Ordinary World

Awaken Your Myth's guiding principles are rooted in the power of the ancient wisdom of the hero's journey to lead you to a life of authenticity and meaning by awakening your personal myth.

Everyone has the potential to transform their life into a hero’s journey, but it can be challenging, especially on your own.

Together, we can overcome these challenges by cultivating mindfulness, yielding to the flow of life, embracing deep transformation, healing with the support of community, and crafting a meaningful personal myth through the art of storytelling.

These are the pillars of the MYTHS MindReset™ and the skills you’ll develop in the Awaken Your Myth™ Coaching Journey & Community.

The MYTHS MindReset

Untether your authentic self with this unique approach to community-supported personal growth that combines the ancient wisdom of the hero's journey with the power of mindfulness, yielding, transformation, healing, and storytelling.


Discover the power of mindfulness and its scientifically supported benefits. Foster a profound connection with your inner self and the world around you, bringing heightened clarity and equanimity. This research-backed approach serves as a cornerstone for promoting personal development and enhancing your overall sense of well-being.


Practicing the art of yielding, you'll learn to release illusions of control and venture into the unknown. This enables you to dissolve resistance, making you more receptive to new opportunities and experiences. Although it might appear intimidating at first, adopting this mindset ultimately paves the way for a liberating and fulfilling approach to life.


As you journey through life, change is inevitable. To truly transform, you need support to release negative patterns and nurture positive ones. With the MYTHS MindReset™, you'll gain the skills to enthusiastically embrace change, fostering lasting transformation that reveals your most authentic self and moves you closer to your dreams.


Being part of an intentional community offers profound emotional healing. Within this supportive space, you can integrate transformation and make peace with your shadow. This connection fosters deep compassion and understanding for both yourself and others, empowering you to navigate the world with increased freedom and confidence.


While crafting a new personal myth based on self-acceptance and curiosity, you'll also be deepening your knowledge that your story does not define you. With the power of storytelling, you'll be able to better understand the stories you tell and create a compelling narrative of your personal transformation to inspire yourself and others.

Discover the power of the MYTHS MindReset™

The hero’s journey is your map through the unknown to a life of authenticity and self-realization.
Your awakened myth is the compass.

Is Awaken Your Myth For You?

The Awaken Your Myth Coaching Journey is designed for finding the living truth of who you are so that you can create a life with more purpose, wellbeing, and authenticity.

It will give you the skills & support you need to...

  • stop settling for a life that doesn’t feel right and start living the life that’s authentically yours

  • embrace your individuality and authenticity

  • reach meaningful, challenging goals

  • learn how to cultivate mindfulness and yield to the flow of life

  • embrace change and integrate your shadow

  • inspire yourself and others with a powerful story of self-discovery and empowerment

Find Out Who You Really Are


Your personal myth is the story you tell yourself about who you are, where you come from, and where you're going in life.

It’s the narrative that shapes your sense of self and influences your thoughts, feelings, and actions.

Your personal myth is the foundation of who you are in the world. It can either limit you or empower you to be more resilient in the face of challenges, letting you pursue your dreams with clarity and determination.

By intentionally crafting your personal myth, you can unlock the power to live a life of greater connection, authenticity, and joy.


In the Awaken Your Myth™ Community, mentorship helps you achieve your goals and awaken your personal myth.

Instructors and community members provide guidance, feedback, and support to help members overcome obstacles and achieve their full potential.

Our community members are committed to helping each other grow and achieve their dreams, making the Awaken Your Myth™ Community a powerful tool for personal growth and transformation.

If you want more support and meaningful connection in your life, come join us.


Meaning gives your life a sense of purpose and direction, and allows you to connect your most authentic self with the world around you.

Without meaning, we can experience life as empty and directionless, leaving us feeling lost and anxious. 

By identifying and pursuing the things that bring us joy, purpose, and fulfillment, we can create a life that is rich with meaning.

Understanding the importance of meaning is essential, as it allows us to awaken to our full potential and lead a life that is authentic, purposeful, and connected.

This Changes People

It’s Not For Everyone

While the Awaken Your Myth Coaching Journey is designed to help anyone who is seeking personal growth, there are some who may not be ready for this journey.

Awaken Your Myth may not be for you…

  • If you are not open to discovering new ideas and perspectives

  • If you are unwilling to explore and let go of any of your attachment to beliefs and identities

  • If you are looking for a quick fix or an easy solution to your challenges

  • If you are currently experiencing significant emotional or psychological distress, it may be best to focus on getting the support and care you need before diving into this intensive program.

A Word From Erik

Play Video

Dear friend,

I wanted to share with you the journey of discovering my personal myth. For many years, I was putting in lots of effort but still felt lost and disconnected from my purpose in life. I couldn’t escape the feeling that something was missing.

It wasn’t until I started to explore the lessons of the hero’s journey and the power of my own personal myth that I began to uncover how the story I was telling myself was what was holding me back. I had been treating life like a problem to be solved. By awakening my myth with mindfulness and acceptance, I could finally see life for the gift it is.

Through this process, I was able to identify my unique strengths and challenges, and see how they could be used to make a positive impact on my life and the world. I also learned to embrace my vulnerabilities and shadow aspects, and use them to move closer to the life I’d always dreamed of.

There were plenty of times when I doubted myself or felt overwhelmed by the process. But with the support of my community and mentors, I was able to awaken my personal myth, stay committed to the journey, and come out the other side with a clearer sense of who I am and what I’m meant to do.

I hope that my experience can be an inspiration to you, and that you too can awaken your myth and live a life that’s true to your authentic self and makes a positive impact on the world.




PS If you’d like to start connecting more deeply to your own personal myth, I’ve put some free resources below to support your journey.
