"The Radical Aliveness work that David Sutcliffe facilitates has changed my life irrevocably and it continues to do so in a proactive and life-affirming way." - Jimi
"Frankly, I was blown away by David’s level of skill. His in-the-moment inventiveness was astonishing and powerful. I highly recommend him." - Heather M
"His workshop was beautiful and unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before. It was challenging and inspiring. I left feeling blessed and alive. I can’t wait until the next one!"
"I am a changed individual… I stepped into the fear and emerged with an open heart, a desire to live authentically and a greater understanding of myself, others, and the complicated, yet beautiful, human condition. - Diana P
I used to feel nervous around people and afraid of saying or doing the "wrong" thing. I also felt kind of numb emotionally, and stiff. Sometimes I didn't even know what I was feeling or how to express it. Doing this work feels like coming back to life, or waking up from a long cryogenic freeze. As stuff began to move for me, I came unfrozen. I feel! I'm human! I can cry and laugh and want. I'm alive. -Rebekah B
Are you holding back?
Do you keep yourself small and in control? Do you feel shame about your desires? Are you afraid to go after what you want? Do you numb yourself to suppress your longing?
When we refuse to answer the call of our highest self, we suffer. Instead of expressing our passion, creativity, and love, we turn that energy against ourselves. This resistance creates frustration, resentment, and pain. Disconnected from the truth of who we are, we live a shadow life, empty and unfulfilled.
Are you afraid of your power?
Stepping into our power takes us out of control. It disrupts the order of our internal map of reality and challenges our identity. It does not feel safe. It requires that we let go of the need to understand and surrender to the intelligence of the life force inside us, trusting that there is something divine waiting for us on the other side.
This intention of this workshop is to give you a space, supported by a group of people, to feel and express all that you hold back; to unapologetically go after what you want and ask for what you need; to reclaim the lost parts of yourself, and take ownership of the goodness and value of what you long to contribute.
My hope is that you’ll experience the freedom of surrender, develop a deep trust in life, and set yourself on the path to fully committing to being all of who you are.

"To say that weekend 'cracked me open' is an understatement. I walked out of our two short days together feeling more love and peace than I think I have ever felt." - Jennifer
"After a weekend workshop, I felt like how a person must feel after confessing to a crime years later: proud to have told the ugly truth, free from the dirty weight of a secret and full of newly liberated energy to use however I want." - Mary A.
"Dave's workshop provides a safe surrounding where I practiced self-exploration by being the most me possible, honouring my vulnerability without making any effort to be perfect, nice, or special".
I couldn't help but be affected by Dave's intense passion for this work. He embodies what he teaches, brings all of himself, and the energy that radiates from him empowers and heals. I want to bring all of myself to life. Although I'm not perfect and parts of me may be "broken" and in need of healing, I'm experiencing that it's from these "broken" parts that my essence shines blindingly bright and beautiful. - Julie S
Within the Radical Aliveness room, the safe shared space we worked in, I found my voice, I showed my feelings.
