Create a Life of Peace and Prosperity by Combining the Modern Science of Mindfulness with the Ancient Wisdom of the Hero’s Journey

What if your life up to now has just been the beginning of the most compelling story you've ever heard?

The Awaken Your Myth™ Community & Coaching Journey equips you with the essential tools and support you need to successfully navigate life’s challenges as you rewrite your story and discover who you truly are.

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 7 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 deep peace and meaningful success both come from the same place—knowing and sharing the living truth 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 peace and prosperity by awakening your personal myth.

Everyone has the potential to transform the story of their life—their personal myth. But it can be very challenging, especially on your own.

Together, we can overcome these challenges by applying the proven science of mindfulness, learning to yield to the flow of life, embracing deep transformation, healing with the support of community, and crafting a meaningful personal myth through the primal art of storytelling.

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

The MYTHS MindReset

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.

In your personal myth lies the key to inner peace.

At Awaken Your Myth, we help you explore and understand your life’s narrative, leading to a deeper sense of calm. This journey isn’t just about finding quiet moments; it’s about discovering tranquility in your everyday life.

You’ll learn to identify and change the patterns in your story that cause stress and restlessness. This rewrites your narrative into one of lasting peace, equipping you to face life’s challenges with a calm and focused mind.


Your purpose is a vital part of your personal myth.

We guide you in discovering and embracing this aspect of your story. This process is about finding meaning and aligning your actions and beliefs with this deeper understanding.

Prosperity is much more than material wealth.

It’s about reshaping your story so you can thrive in all areas of your life, moving beyond limitations and into a space of growth and opportunity.

By re-authoring your personal myth with an emphasis on gratitude, you’ll learn to see and create opportunities for prosperity in health, relationships, creativity, and joy. Enrich yourself and those around you with a life where prosperity is both recognized and cherished.

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 begin to see life for the gift it is.

Through this process, I was able to identify my unique strengths and challenges, and see how realizing my deepest dreams could make a positive impact on not just my life, but also on the world around me. I began to embrace my vulnerabilities and shadow aspects, and use them to guide me toward the life I’d always hoped was possible.

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 to bring you peace and prosperity as you make 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.
