Hey, I'm Richard, the Founder of Awakened Man

 

THIS IS MY STORY...


I'm 35

.

From England.

.

When I was 11 my parents divorced and life got VERY dark.

.

With no father around, my brother got into drugs and lost his mind.

.

I was afraid, alone and lived in fear of what he’d do next. I was frozen in terror.

.

I turned to weed, porn, booze; anything that could take me away from the fear and violence at home.

.

I rejected the world, but deep down I just craved a father figure, someone to guide me, but all the time I looked in the wrong places.

.

I wore a mask to pretend I was okay, yet my tortured soul kept breaking through.

.

One day, I couldn’t hold it back any longer and my whole being exploded into the most insane panic attack – I honestly thought I was going mad like my brother.

.

The only thing that could keep me calm after that was alcohol, so I drank to excess.

.

This allowed me to be social and meet girls, but deep down I was very broken.

.

I lived like this for many years and faced a lot of darkness; I got cheated on by a woman I ‘loved’, I hurt myself, I hurt others…

.

Then my brother took his own life.

.

I knew this was it, I HAD to change. I changed my life and read all the self-help books I could, I got into running, I learnt to talk to women, I got an MA.

.

And do you know what? On the surface, it worked!

.

I got a good job in London working as an editor in a publishing house, I got a hot new GF, I got a nice flat…

.

Yet within, I was still trapped, still wounded by the past. I just felt if I could hold onto the relationship that was becoming co-dependent and toxic, and the job that was becoming soul destroying and INSANELY stressful, I’d be okay.

.

I was a ticking timebomb, I was afraid I’d die this way, and one day, I went BANG.

.

I woke up in a rehab in the middle of nowhere, as lost and confused as I was as a boy all those years ago.

.

Yet bizarrely, I also started to feel free.

.

I realised I had – through sheer pain - relinquished my personal narrative and found that having lost everything, I’d finally found the one thing I was always searching for – my self (or more accurately, my Self).

.

With the help of many great men in the recovery world, men’s coaches and spiritual practitioners, I rebuilt my life on pure, free foundations.

.

I learnt the meaning of words such as discipline, service, and love.

.

I had found myself. I was home. This was the foundation for me to build a deeply authentic spiritually rooted life working on Awakened Man, in a relationship that’s balanced with a woman I can truly connect with and living a life of meaning.

.

It’s become my mission to spread this message, and this is why I'm launching a Free 5 Day Challenge; Heal Your Wounds & Get Your Life Together.

.

So anyone, finding themselves struggling with inner demons, held back by their wounds, you must see that a completely different life is awaiting you.

.

You don’t have to run away any longer, you don’t have to hide behind a mask. You can access vital tools that can free you from pain and set you on a path of meaning and greatness.
