What is Ávakas?

Ávakas is a place of empowerment where visions are developed and dreams come true. 


We believe life is not just a journey but a mindset, a practice, and a process. Our mission is simple, find the genius in each member at any age and develop their gifts (skill sets) to their fullest potential.

Five Ecosystems

Using an ecosystem of ideas we aim to recognize value sets and develop parallel skill sets that are unique and individual. Below are five words used as pillars to each development.* 

1. Self-actualization

2. Innovation

3. Edification

4. Compassion

5. Sustainability 

Whether a child, adult or sentinel, we believe your full potential is attainable if your uniqueness is identified and developed. This type of understanding is accomplished through deep introspection and guidance from of a vibrant community of families, friends, colleagues, mentors, and machines.

Live your genius, everyday.

*Ávakas is the Greek spelling of "abacus" and is pronounced similarly ("v" replacing the "b") with an accent on the first vowel. We often use the non-accented "A" in writing but use the accented "Á" in pronunciation. Vision concepts, 1. Self-actualization (your why and how) 2. Innovation (creativity and originality) 3. Edification (development of ethics and values) 4. Compassion (kindness, family, community-minded) 5. Sustainability (environmental protection, physical and mental health).




Ávakas Symposium
On various Sundays, members of the community contribute their artistry and research towards a collective learning environment called the "Ávakas Symposium."  Each Symposium is an opportunity for members to present their work as a final product or in-process performance. Here are a few Conservatory videos from the last symposium.
