Wake Up San Francisco:
One Extraordinary Day of Transformation

March 28, 2015
10:00 am–10:30 pm


How can we stay sane, resourceful, and connected to the limitless depths of our being right in the midst of our busy lives? Is such a thing possible? Is spiritual awakening reserved for people who travel to retreats and monasteries, or is it possible that we can touch spiritual awakening and the depths of the human heart right in the midst of the chaos of our lives? Wake Up San Francisco is a one-day event on Saturday, March 28th that immerses participants in the awakening of the human heart. Bringing together spiritual teachers, poets, musicians, yogis, psychological researchers, healers, and lovers of life, Wake Up San Francisco promises to be a day of reflection, new insight, and transformation.

You are warmly invited to join pioneering spiritual teacher Adyashanti and music sensation Alanis Morissette for a one-of-a-kind dialogue about waking up in the midst of everyday life. The author of books including Emptiness Dancing and Falling into Grace, Adyashanti is one of today's most sought-after teachers, especially when it comes to his rare public appearances. Alanis is most recognized for her album Jagged Little Pill (which still ranks as the number one top-selling debut album for a female artist). The dialogue will be hosted by Sounds True founder, Tami Simon, and will be followed by an intimate concert with Alanis Morissette.

In addition to Adyashanti and Alanis Morissette, presenters at Wake Up San Francisco include:

  • Caroline Myss, New York Times bestselling author and leading voice in the field of energy medicine
  • Mario Martinez, clinical neuropsychologist lecturing worldwide on how cultural beliefs affect health and longevity
  • Sally Kempton, author of Awakening Shakti and Meditation for the Love of It, on the transformative power of kundalini
  • Roger Housden, author of Ten Poems to Change Your Life and Keeping the Faith Without a Religion, on beauty as a portal to awakening
  • Sera Beak, Harvard-trained scholar of comparative world religions and author of Red Hot and Holy: A Heretic's Love Story

When we touch a limitless sense of being—vast, open, undivided—and do so in an embodied way, we paradoxically become more uniquely ourselves, more empowered, and on fire to bring forward our unique gifts. We wake up to our courage, to our authenticity, and to contributing to the well-being of others in fresh and meaningful ways. We welcome you to join us at Wake Up San Francisco!

Note: we will break for lunch from 12:00–1:30 pm and for dinner from 5:30–7:30 pm. Please make plans for meals in the area on your own.

I am so excited that there is a different option this year. I have wanted to attend the past three years, and now here is my chance! I am looking forward to an experience of positivity, soulversations, and insight. Cheers!

I have loved the last 3 Wake Up events I have attended. Adya and Caroline are both amazing, and I can't believe I'll get to see Alanis in an intimate acoustic concert! Can't wait!

Just a piggyback on part of Tracy's complaint. I picked up a promotional flyer for Mark Nepo's audio companion set Reduced to Joy. It was promoted at a whopping 35% off for Wake-Up Festival attendees. When I actually placed the order, it was listed at 33% off for everyone. I actually got 2% off as a Wake-Up Festival attendee. I don't begrudge the general public their nice discount, but I do feel manipulated.

Tracy - Sorry to hear you feel so negatively about a shorter, more affordable WakeUp Festival. The discounted price that was offered at the WakeUp Festival 2014 was for premier seating. Tickets range from $95 -$295, where for balcony seats are sold at $95, regular seating at $195, and premier seating for $295 (Prices go up after Sept. 15th).

As Tami explained at the end of this year's WakeUp Festival, Sounds True would like to be able to reach out to more individuals, on a more global scale, when it comes to offering an experience of reflection, new insight, and transformation. This is accomplished by expanding our festivals to new locations, as well as shortening the time frame (Not everyone is able to take a whole week off to attend).

Breaks for lunch and dinner are actually a whole hour and half, Lunch from 12:00–1:30 pm and dinner from 5:30–7:30 pm. Because this is a single day event, and not held at an all inclusive retreat center, participant will have to plan their meals on their own, however, there are plenty of restaurants and other food options available near the Nourse Theater - https://www.google.com/maps/search/food+near+Nourse+Theater,+Hayes+Street,+San+Francisco,+CA/@37.7770135,-122.420844,17z/data=!3m1!4b1

All of us here at Sounds True really hope you give this new and updated version a try. We welcome you to join us at Wake Up San Francisco!
