Published in 1899, The Awakening remains an important title in  feminist literature. Kate Chopin's work is a book I will revisit again and again--each time with a different perspective. I first read the story of Edna Pontellier when I was 21 years old.

At the time I was swept up by her independence and freedom. Reading her story again at 28, I was the same age as Edna is in the novel. But she is a young wife and mother, and I wonder at her lack of responsibility.

Kate Chopin, the author of The Awakening , had strong, independent women as role models in her youth so it is not surprising that these same attributes would blossom, not only in her personal life but in her characters' lives as well. Chopin was 39 years old when she began to write  fiction , her earlier life being consumed with education, marriage, and children.

" The Awakening " is the first episode of Book Three: Fire of Avatar: The Last Airbender and the 41st of the overall series. It debuted on September 21, 2007.

Aang awakens to find himself gravely wounded on board a stolen Fire Nation ship with his friends. He is shocked and dismayed to discover that the world believes him to be dead. Zuko and Azula are welcomed home as heroes, where Fire Lord Ozai congratulates his son, having been told by Azula that Zuko struck Aang down. Zuko, however, secretly believes the Avatar had survived. After a great deal of persuasion, Aang agrees to keep his existence a secret.

Meanwhile, the storm becomes even more intense, with Aang ultimately losing his glider. Aang feels like a failure, thinking that he will not make it out of the storm, but Avatar Roku appears to him in a vision, apologizing for not doing anything to stop the War before it began and encouraging Aang not to give up. Princess Yue also appears in a beam of moonlight, calming the ocean, offering her encouragement as well. With Yue's help, Aang stands on the driftwood, makes a huge tidal wave and heads off by using waterbending to power himself forward, eventually washing up on Crescent Island , where the Fire Temple once stood.

For the past 35 years, John Kehoe has been conducting a very private workshop called The Awakening. It is offered exclusively to John’s advanced students, those who have completed the Mind Power training. The Awakening is held in three different locations around the world: Vancouver (Canada), South Africa and New Zealand. This workshop is limited to 35 people, allowing John to work with the group on a deep and intimate level, giving personal attention to the group dynamics. No two Awakenings are alike, as no two Awakenings include the same participants. The workshop is designed to take you to a profound level of your being; to your true essence.

Using powerful techniques, John leads participants gently and securely into the depths of the four parts of self: the body, mind, subconscious and soul. When these four parts are awakened and functioning effectively with one another, we experience an awareness and clarity that is unmistakable. It is in this state that we are “awakened”. Each individual can then live life with clarity and understanding, focusing their energies on what is most important to them.

For 5 days participants give up all contact with the outside world to explore parts of themselves that have long been neglected and undeveloped. The Awakening is, for most people, the single most important experience of their lives.

Travel to the latest destination in Riviera Maya on the border of an amazing biosphere reserve. Our fresh water lagoon will mesmerize you with the amazing colors of Caribbean water. Our jungle canopy will caress your inner sanctuary. The Mayan culture and spirit will open new perspectives and horizons. And your cocoon will spoil you with comfort, incredible views and extraordinary “barefoot luxury” while making you feel one with nature.

Re-connecting to this moment – this is what Awakening essentially is all about. Once you connect to nature, you connect to everything. Living this present moment with all of your attention will create a deeper connection with your loved ones, with new friends and especially with yourself. Awakening lives this reality, and we express it in the design of physical spaces, experiences, the service and the concept as a whole.

We create and spread happiness – for our guests, our employees, our surroundings and also for ourselves. Beyond a great time away from everyday life, we provide the opportunity to engage in Awakening experiences that promote physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Our guests choose the level and depth of their experience,  which can reach from “just a fun and relaxing vacation” to personalized well-being programs, designed by our personal development and happiness coaches, so everybody can take a piece of sustained happiness back home.

The novel opens with the Pontellier family—Léonce, a New Orleans businessman of Louisiana Creole heritage; his wife Edna; and their two sons, Etienne and Raoul—vacationing on Grand Isle at a resort on the Gulf of Mexico managed by Madame Lebrun and her two sons, Robert and Victor.

Edna spends most of her time with her close friend Adèle Ratignolle, who cheerily and boisterously reminds Edna of her duties as a wife and mother. At Grand Isle, Edna eventually forms a connection with Robert Lebrun, a charming, earnest young man who actively seeks Edna's attention and affections. When they fall in love, Robert senses the doomed nature of such a relationship and flees to Mexico under the guise of pursuing a nameless business venture. The narrative focus moves to Edna's shifting emotions as she reconciles her maternal duties with her desire for social freedom and to be with Robert.

When summer vacation ends, the Pontelliers return to New Orleans. Edna gradually reassesses her priorities and takes a more active role in her own happiness. She starts to isolate herself from New Orleans society and to withdraw from some of the duties traditionally associated with motherhood. Léonce eventually talks to a doctor about diagnosing his wife, fearing she is losing her mental faculties. The doctor advises Léonce to let her be and assures him that things will return to normal.
