Homework Week 1
Chakra 1 / Physical Life Purpose Point / Creative Idealist
SECOND YEAR INFORMATION
Welcome to your 2nd year in the Life Mastery Training Program! Take a moment to acknowledge and appreciate the work you've done in Year 1 - your new amazing friends and the depths you've reached within. In the 2nd year, you will be supported in going even deeper. As a result, you will stand more fully in your Life Purpose and be empowered to create the life you truly want and deserve. Congratulations for making the choice to continue your deep dive into your greatness.
One of the goals in the Life Mastery Training Program is to support you in cultivating deeper self-awareness through homework and sharing in class. Be candid in your homework - what you write is always held in confidence with your teachers. Extraordinary growth can come from your willingness to self-disclose with both teachers and classmates. If you're new to this type of work, this may take time. The toughest leaps we take have to do with our willingness to be seen and to see ourselves as unique and amazing. Comments from teachers will be direct and be designed to show you either your highest potential or how you are blocking it, not get into a discussion on the validity of any points you made in your homework.
Below you will see the reading and listening assignments. This material will support you in the energy of each chakra and support you as you prepare for class and do your required homework. Getting your homework answers submitted 2 weeks before class ensures that teachers will be able to review it, provide feedback and allow plenty of time for you to fully integrate the ideas in preparation for class. Late homework may not get feedback. Your full commitment to this process will yield the greatest transformation.
IMPORTANT: In order to receive a certificate at the end of this year’s program, you must have attended class and completed the 3 homework questions for 4 of the 5 classes.
If you are struggling with the books or need clarity on the homework or anything, please reach out to your team of Teachers/TAs for help at any time. The Teacher/TA assigned to review your homework will email and call you to connect in the period between classes and you can email them directly, too. If you need any technical assistance using the RTI Online Membership website, please send an email to our support staff ([email protected]).

Optional Guidance Practices and Supportive Energetic Exercises:
- Keep a journal.
- Pull Divination Cards: Medicine (Animal) deck by J. Sams / Rider-Waite Tarot deck / Archetype deck by C. Myss.
Draw one card from each deck every day for the entire school year. Tarot = lower self (emotional world), Animal = Heart (relationship world), Archetype = higher self (higher purpose); note them in your journal. At the end of each day, reflect back at what happened and on how those cards were guiding you to prepare for the day. Each week assess how accurate the cards were at predicting your day. Divination is not some secret science; rather, it is becoming conscious that you are constantly being guided. The cards just force you to pay attention in some small way. Each one is a metaphor for your life that can act as a lens for you to see events transpiring. "Throw" the cards before each healing or class to see what energies are asking to be attended to.
- Do at least one energetic ritual each day.
- Listen to the Chakra One and Physical Life Purpose crystal bowl tones, then journal about your experience each time you listen to them so that you begin to build your awareness of how they like to talk to you. (Crystal Bowl Tones available in RTI Online Membership website.)
- Meditate daily with any of the meditations from the RTI Online Membership website.
- Instructions about “Goals to Balance the Chakra”: Identify a ritual, activity or goal that helps you maintain your Center of Gravity in this Chakra. This could include running, yoga, journaling, public speaking, contemplating animal medicine cards, affirmations, bio-energetics, listening to music or even a specific song. Be creative - choose something that captures the essence of this Chakra and supports you in expressing it fully in your profile. Different activities will support different profiles, so choose which one(s) will support you in your core profile best at this time. Please be creative - if you do not see something on this list that would support you, pick something else.
