I’ve been a therapist for 25-years. This course is different than anything I’ve come across. Most therapy is done at a certain level of consciousness—I call that “safety consciousness.” The work at that level is valuable and helpful . . . but only takes us so far. And, working at that level can be exhausting.

This is entirely different.

Instead of focusing on troubled childhoods, past traumas, or lack of self-esteem, this course shows you how you can be thrilled to be alive, and free yourself from unnecessary suffering. During the course you receive support from me, your buddy, and group members. After the course, there will be ongoing support in the form of monthly online reunions for those who are interested. The course includes:

  • Four video conference sessions.
  • Having a “buddy” for the entire course.
  • Daily emails with your buddy.
  • Short daily meditations.

You can join with a buddy of your own (however, not your romantic partner), or you will be able to select a partner during the first session.

  • This course has a limit as to how many students can join. And it's necessary that we end up with an even number because everyone is paired up with a "buddy."
    So if any person doesn't show up, it messes up the experience for their buddy. That's why I ask you to make a 100% commitment if you're going to join this 22-day course.
    The commitment includes a weekly Zoom video conference, a brief daily email with your buddy, and a short daily meditation. Can you do that?
    You're welcome to join with a friend, your own "buddy," as long as that person is not your romantic partner. But if you don't come with a "buddy," you'll be able to select your "buddy" during the first session.
    Are you able to make a 100% commitment?
  • If someone referred you to this course, please let me know who that was. If not, how did you find out about this course?
  • If you participate in the course, you can go through the entire thing without paying any money upfront.
    At the end of the course, if you found it was valuable, I ask you to make a donation. I'm setting it up this way because I want this to feel like a heartfelt invitation. That's what this course is mostly about, learning to live with an open heart.
    At the same time, given the amount of time I spend on each course, I need to make some money. In the past, some people have felt uneasy not knowing how much to donate, so now I offer the following guidelines:
    $199 for most people.
    $299 for those who have a fatter wallet.
    $99 for students, or those who can't afford more.
    Given that the course includes four 90-minute sessions, along with personalized attention for three weeks—these amounts feel fair to me.
    Are you comfortable with this arrangement?
If you want to hear what some previous participants have to say:

Jake, thank you for this wonderful heart offering. When I began this course I was really struggling to accept my new role as mother, feeling lost and disconnected, struggling in my relationship. Never in a million years did I imagine it was possible for me to be this “thrilled to be alive”. And yet here I am just a few weeks later with so much more space and energy to give to my son and partner. I feel like I’ve finally let go of the need to “acheive” and “reach goals” and I can now settle into the heart based rhythm of family life.


This is a 22-day online and offline course that can change your life. It will get you focused on all that you can appreciate rather than what’s not perfect in your life, and celebrate the simple, beautiful fact that we are blessed with this life. The course will get you off of autopilot, help you become more aware of where your consciousness resides most of the time, which is in safety mode. Once aware of that, you can make the choice to open up to a new heart-based level of consciousness where there’s a choice in how you perceive the “problems” you face in life. Our level of consciousness can change problems into adventures.


This course radically shifted my perspective. I’ve always thought of myself as somewhat self-aware, but this lifts that awareness even more than I thought possible. It’s amazing how much choice we have in our lives to exist and allow others to exist… this course kind of just melts the importance of any “problems” we have away to nothingness. Do it!


Would you like to expand your heart and truly Love your life? Try this “Thrilled to be Alive” inspiring, interactive, online group for 22 days. I believe you will amaze yourself with your capacity for ease, grace and satisfaction with life!


Jake’s course took me to another level, one that I hadn’t known was available to me. It helped me shift from a life focused on problems – which I was very good at navigating after years of skill-building- to experiencing more joy in my life. I’m really grateful!
