About the sweet awake

Nikki Pruss

This is how the sweet awake came to be.

In November of 2012, I quit my highly coveted job as a medical equipment sales representative. I hung up my undergraduate degree and my MBA, sublet my beautiful apartment and moved to a small town in the Dominican Republic. Here I started learning Spanish, became a Dive Master and began to unweave the web of my life that no longer served me.

I was secretly in a dark place for a lot of my life because I was resisting the part of me that I am embracing now. That resistance caused me a lot of stress, anxiety and anger. Unfortunately, I took it out on myself and those I loved the most and the harder I fought the truth the worse the impact was.

Unknowingly I began a journey that was bringing me back to my truest self, unmasking all the faces I put on over my lifetime. Over the subsequent years, a knowing, true unconditional love and a fire were ignited in me empowering me to finally follow my heart and remember the truth of who I am.

In January of 2017, I left my home in the U.S. on a pilgrimage where I have journeyed deep into myself, often through the hearts of others.  The sweet awake was envisioned from the desire to hold space for others. This desire stems from my personal experience with the struggles and beauty of awakening into my truth. I have used each and every one of the methods I offer and have worked with other healers and by myself to heal and transform my own life. I have embraced my role as a catalyst to guide you back to your own truths. I created the sweet awake not to heal you, rather to reflect your own brilliance back to you when you have forgotten.

Testimonials

“My holiday to Thailand would not have been the same had I not have come across Nikki and her amazing talents.

Our sessions and talks inspired me to follow what I truly feel and to stop overthinking and over-planning.

I am definitely more content since meeting Nikki, she is a truly inspirational and talented soul and I can’t wait for our paths to cross again.” Jodie

“Learning yoga from Nikki was an amazing experience. I have practiced yoga a little bit in my hometown but Nikki opened my eyes so much wider after my week with her. I have some injuries from playing volleyball and she was so good at adjusting the sessions so I would be able do every session with full effort. Nikki will always be my favorite yoga teacher.” Ragnar

“Nikki was amazing. She was professional, kind and really easy to connect with. I had a Chi Nei Tsang abdominal massage which was really incredible. It let out a lot of pent up emotions which have been stuck for a long time. It made me feel light and really calm. I would never have tried it if Nikki did not recommend it to me, and I’m so glad she did.” Hannah
