All of this is possible right now! The technologies, tools, education and people already exist to make this a reality and that is what we are working to do! This website was created to bring you along on the journey of the creation of Awaken Wholeness Center here in South Kingstown, Rhode Island.

President and Operator of Flo De-Stressing Center LLC, Wakefield, Rhode Island
As a whole, society is in desperate need of change. For a long time the majority of humanity has been asleep. People have become increasingly unhappy and unsatisfied with their lives. The average person is spending a lot of money to feel better and to get healthy, yet the opposite has occurred. Their health has diminished, they have huge medical bills, and they are not being healthfully sustained by the traditional healthcare system.
The good news is there is an awakening occuring within society and people have become hungry for change. People know they want something different, they just don't know what that is.
Awaken is here to meet that need by providing the necessary tools and support that will create the positive change people are looking for. Picture a wholeness center focused entirely on empowering people by teaching and showing them how to unlock their amazing self-healing abilities, intuitive and perceptive abilities. Imagine people that can heal themselves! This is huge!
When people are free from disease and depression and their health has been restored, they are better able to express and access their innate abilities and live out more of their passion and purpose. People that turn on their innate abilities quickly become aware of how interconnected we all are. They begin treating themselves and others more like the precious beings they are. People become conscious of not only what they put in or on their bodies, but also their own inner and outer dialogue. Treating themselves and others with kindness and respect, this is how the world changes.
None of this is out of grasp. It is all very real. It just takes the right tools and support structure to bring these ideas and concepts together to make it a reality. This is why we are creating this center. We are here to tie all the pieces together to make practical sense of how to live an awake, healthy, empowered, and purposeful life.
We have the combined knowledge, cutting edge technologies, tools, drive, and purity of heart to make this center a reality. Just since the early incubation of the idea behind Awaken, we have had many people step forward saying how they would love to be part of the Awaken team. Many people have specifically stated to us how they would be willing to relocate to be a part of the center. This shows the growing support and movement we are already receiving. We want to help people discover how truly amazing they are and move out of the mode of survival to one of thriving!
This proposed layout gives us the greatest flexibility for the space and maximizes the potential both indoors and outdoors.
The perfect property we found and would like to purchase for Awaken is a 54,000 square foot building
on 35 acres in the heart of South Kingstown, Rhode Island.
Education is the thread that ties together everything we do at our center. By participating in our various classes, retreats, and lectures, as well as exploring our various technologies, modalities, and practitioners, our clients will begin to grasp and start to connect their own pieces of the puzzle to see how everything around us is all interconnected and how those various connections affect one another. Education is key to inspiring change from within.
We will offer weekend classes and lectures to the general public, as well as 1-3 week retreat programs for guests, in order to allow our clients to find their way to complete health, peace, and well-being.
We plan to include a Lightfield™ unit, a Harmonic Egg, and a Flo unit in our offerings. The Lightfield™ currently operating in Chester, MA has seen over 17,000 sessions in the last nine years, with no advertising - only word of mouth. Imagine its popularity and affect on raising consciousness at a center where on average 80,000 people drive by a day!
Lightfield was designed to help empower humanity by assisting people in connecting with their higher levels of consciousness. Lightfield technology uses information fields and sacred geometries to project a harmonious field into a space in which a client reclines for approximately a 30 minute session. The client emerges feeling a sense of revitalization and greater well-being and often reports feeling a greater connection with their higher levels of awareness.

Harmonic Egg Technology
The technology combines photostimulation, music and the vibratory sensory perception of music for optimal relaxation and autonomic balance. The technology works to turn off the activity of the genes that cause disease / trauma and turn on the activity of the genes that fight disease and release trauma. Once this happens, the rest can be done by the body. The technology simply triggers the bodies mechanisms to do the job of fighting disease / trauma on its own. It influencing the body to do what it is innately born to do!
Flo De-stressing Technology
A highly-efficient technology has been created for alleviating stress in people, based upon fundamental Russian discoveries in physics and related technology representing two decades of scientific research. An individual session averages 35 minutes, during which time the client reclines within the Flo unit surrounded by a harmonious field of information that is projected within it. The client emerges feeling renewed and energized.

As a part of helping our clients to select the best practices that work for their own personal growth and Mind, Body, Spirit development, we will offer specific services that will be offered on a regular basis. We have selected these services based on the success of each one to specifically address clearing old patterns, beliefs, and emotions at a cellular level (TRE and Body & Emotion Code), moving energy through the body to form new patterns (Reiki and Reflexology), and allowing the body to maintain a relaxed state (Massage and Aromatherapy). When combined, each of these services addresses the whole man/woman on many different levels and layers.
"Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy."
"Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet, hands, or ears. Reflexologists believe that these reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, and that pressing them creates real benefits for the person's health."
"Tension & Trauma Release Exercises (or TRE®) is a simple yet innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. Created by Dr. David Berceli, PhD, TRE safely activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/ vibrating mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance."
Body & Emotion Code
"Put simply the secret is this: The human body holds all of the answers that we need to help it function at its absolute peak. But then the question remains...how can we access this limitless healing database? The answer is simple: Combine the proven techniques of Muscle Testing with a groundbreaking new system...to unlock the hidden healing power of the subconscious mind...It is called The Body Code System...and it is the most advanced self-study energy balancing and healing system in the world."
"Aromatherapy is a type of alternative medicine practice utilizing fragrant/aromatic essential oils that are derived from a wide variety of healing plants. When inhaled or applied to the skin, therapeutic-grade essential oils (also sometimes called volatile oils) have been shown to help people overcome various health problems without the need for medications."
"Massage therapy consists primarily of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health."
We will be the ONLY Organic, Plant Based Restaurant in the area!
We will be the FIRST Green Fitness Gym in Rhode Island!
When you prepare and make food with Love - it tastes better!
An important aspect of our center will be organic, plant-based food that nourishes the body because it has the least amount of processing - just the way nature intended! Our restaurant will feature cafe-style seating for breakfast and lunch in our large, inspired-by-nature dining room. We will serve a more traditional sit down style dinner in the evening.
Our juice bar will offer freshly-squeezed juices all made with organic fruits and vegetables, with optional sweeteners such as honey and maple sugar. We will also offer pre-packaged juices and an assortment of homemade bakery and snack items for people who need a quick pick-me-up after their yoga class or wellness session!
Our Green Gym will synergistically benefit the personal fitness goals of our clients and the electrical requirements of the center. When in use, the cardio equipment that we will be using actually generates electricity for the facility rather than consumes it! That's right! People's workouts will actually produce green energy for our center creating a greener environment with every step made!
Our Yoga Studio will be one large room that can be divided into two smaller rooms if needed. It has large windows that allow for ample natural light from the sun. Our Yoga classes will be offered as part of our retreat packages, as well as to the general public.
We will have sauna rooms on each floor of our classic accommodations building. These two floors are directly above the fitness center and yoga studio. Clients and members will be able to relax and detox after their workouts.
Nature is at the heart of everything we do. We have plans to create several hiking trails throughout the perimeter of the property. We will be adding a labyrinth, "earthing paths", and a fire pit. The interior courtyard will be home to a new waterscape with a waterfall and a meandering stream. Our visitors will have ample opportunities to connect to all of the elements of nature both outdoors and inside. Our interior decor will be nature-inspired to create a calm and peaceful atmosphere for all who visit.
Near the front lobby of our center will be a store with items that have been specifically selected to support a person's personal journey. We will offer everything from basic toiletries for our travelers to juicers for our juice enthusiasts to products to recreate a peaceful environment at home. We will also carry a selection of yoga mats, gemstones and crystals, books, and essential oils, as well as unique gifts.
In a location just off our living room, there is a sun-filled room with built-in shelves that overlooks the interior courtyard. It is the perfect room for an in-house library. Our library will be a quiet place to read a large selection of cutting-edge and informative books that help explain many of the concepts that we will be teaching at our center. Because many of these books are hard to come by, we ask that our clients and guest enjoy reading them onsite.
Awaken Wholeness Center can accommodate up to 100 Guests at full capacity.
The Next Piece...
The World needs to change and that begins by awakening and empowering people! The final piece we are now working on now, is the funding to making this center come to life. It will take an estimated eight million dollars to do so. As soon as this piece of the puzzle is complete, we will let you know. Sign up below to be on our mailing list for center updates!

With the combination of unique leading-edge technologies, along with the education, support, and love from the practitioners, this will be a place of empowerment for people from all walks of life.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
In order to address the growing interest about Awaken Wholeness Center, we created these Q&A's and shared them on our Facebook page as well.
What will the focus of the Center be?
Our focus will be on empowering people! We will provide our clients with new lifestyle options that will take them from survival mode to a mode in which they can thrive. We will help our clients to transition away from the Standard American Diet (SAD), release deep-rooted emotional issues and traumas, provide empowering perspectives and offer the tools to create and maintain a lifestyle that enables a person to feel fulfilled, joyful and a sense of overall well-being. The unique, and in some cases one-of-a-kind, modalities that we plan to offer will aid in cultivating new abilities that many people have never experienced before, such as self-healing abilities, perceptive abilities and intuitive abilities. Fears, traumas, anger, depression, and physical hindrances will be free to fade away, and our clients will transition to the best version of themselves so that they can feel strong, healthy, alert and awake.
What kind of scale are we talking about?
The Center will employ around 30+ people. It will cost eight million dollars to acquire and fully set up the 54,000 square foot facility and its surrounding 35 acres. This includes some renovations and installations, purchasing various modalities and technologies, and setting up the restaurant, kitchen, juice bar, fitness center, store, in-house library, overnight accommodations, handicap accommodations, as well as interior paint, marketing budget, and all outdoor renovations including landscaping, adding hiking trails, resurfacing the parking lot, redoing the main entrance road, and adding stone work at the front entrance that is a wider and more visually appealing. It also allows for startup reserve capital. When we look at all of the various aspects of the Center once it is up and running, we will realistically be able to serve and empower tens of thousands of people each year.
Where will the Center be located?
We have found a wonderful location that is set on 35 beautiful acres located in South Kingstown, RI. The facility is set back from a major highway which provides tranquility, yet offers perfect exposure where 80,000+ people drive by its entrance daily.
Are people ready for a Center like this?
Absolutely! People are awakening and ready for change. Many have been struggling and desperately seeking a lifestyle that will lead them away from the downward spiral that they have been experiencing and toward the light. Many feel totally overwhelmed with health issues and life in general. The good news is that the majority of these struggles can be overcome. Given the proper tools and support, one can transition to a life full of freedom and new opportunities.
