Join Ingrid Honkala, Ph.D. & Heather Driscoll

 on a journey in re-connecting with beings of divinity and forging a path towards a brightly guided life

August 14 & August 15, 2021

In-Person Workshop | Woodstock, Connecticut


Why you may be searching for a Bright Awakening: 

  • You want to become wiser, calmer, and more self-empowered
  • You want to know who you truly are
  • You have a need to know your purpose and your mission
  • You want to know why you are here
  • You are afraid of death and what comes after it 
  • You've lost a loved one and want to connect to them
  • You feel lost, lonely, and like no one understands you
  • You don't know how to handle your emotions surrounding life or death

During this Sacred Journey we will explore how to:

  • Reconnect with your inner wisdom and regain your inner-power
  • Turn constant negative thoughts into positive beliefs
  • Take back emotional control and become a more self-aware being
  • Activate your internal divinity
  • Understand and embrace your uniqueness
  • Become more gentle, loving, and compassionate with yourself and others
  • Dissolve anxiety and fear by learning to calm your mind during chaotic times & daily stress
  • See the goodness behind your challenges & turn them into opportunities instead of sufferings
  • Transform your insight on death and the afterlife 

Together we will ignite the courage, trust, and confidence that it takes to live a life full of depth and truth.


The Result?


A happier, lighter you. One filled with the confidence to move forward and stay dedicated to the purpose you serve. 


Meet Ingrid Honkala, Ph.D.

She is an author, scientist, lightworker, meditation teacher, and international speaker. From the moment of her near-death experience at the age of two, Ingrid was aware of other dimensions of life than those most of us normally experience. 

She was also gifted with the wise input of Beings of Light who gave her invaluable insights and assistance as she faced the challenges of growing up and finding her professional destiny as a research scientist and oceanographer, and now as a giver of light. Throughout her life journey from her native Colombia to Europe and her eventual home in the USA — and from a deadly war zone to underwater explorations and a NASA research center — Ingrid shares how any human experience can be illumined from within. 

If we are willing to pay attention to subtle signals, take our intuition seriously, & forgive our most challenging difficulties, anyone can experience a brightly guided life. In her autobiography, “A Brightly Guided Life: How a Scientist Learned to Hear her Inner Wisdom,” Ingrid details her amazing journey with the Beings of Light.

Meet Heather Driscoll

“In essence, I’m a healer. But I’m also a teacher of empowerment and leadership. That means that as much as I can help you directly, my mission is to also teach you how to continue to lift yourself up higher and higher because you’re always your own best healer.”

Heather is an entrepreneur at heart. She has always felt drawn, even when she was young, to helping people find themselves. Heather believes in the power of creative visualization and has seen her life unfold in exciting ways as a result. She believes in herSelf, as well as in others, and yearns to encourage and empower them. She co-founded Back to Eden, a Spiritual Learning Center, located in Woodstock, CT with her mother Rebecca Ellert. 

Heather is a certified Personal Life Empowerment Coach And Certified HeartMath Coach. She is married to her amazing, supportive soul-mate of a husband, Dan, and together they have three children, Megan, Riley, and Gavin. They live on their farm in Connecticut with their 3 horses, goats, dogs, and chickens.

"Dr. Ingrid Honkala's journey has not been easy, but as she is here to share with us the hardships of her journey, she is also here to show us the wonders that every challenge brings with it.  

All of us can relate to her life story, the only difference is most of us don't FEEL or HEAR the support and guidance from the unseen. I believe it has always been there and all we need to do is ask for help from the unseen, be it angels, God, Jesus, or Beings of Light."

Mary Marlow

"Heather’s coaching has helped me transform my life in so many ways. She has guided me to create a dream life & trust that things are working out for me, despite my tendency to fall into worry! Heather is the most exceptional coach I have encountered!

She listens deeply & her sense of humor will make coaching fun! She is truly the most phenomenal and inspirational coach and I can’t say enough good things about her!"

Dr. Ellen Morello

"The moment I meet Ingrid Honkala I sensed an undeniable surge of positive energy as it radiated outward from her inner core through a set of clear eyes and a wide smile.   

Ingrid’s journey is one that many of us can relate to on a very real spiritual level – especially when we take the time to seek answers from within, using compassion, forgiveness, and truth as our “Light.”
