Rev. Alan L. Pritz, Meditation Teacher & Spiritual Coach

What makes Awake–In–Life unique?

Let’s face it, what I do is unique: Meditation training, spiritual guidance, corporate meditation programs – all of it. A better question to ask is, “Why choose me?” The simplest answer is time-in-the-trenches, commitment, passion, dedication, and extensive experience delivering personal-growth and organizational trainings. Clients are guaranteed:

  • Individual Attention
  • Breadth of Experience
  • Interfaith / Holistic / Spiritual Perspective

For 38+ years I’ve studied and practiced the things I teach. I use a non-secular approach to teaching spiritual living and how to do meditation so clients attain goals and enrich their lives.
