About Us

Meet Gigi Azmy and Jeremy Richardson, Co-Founders of Awakened Living Academy

Gigi Azmy is a world class coach that has also run a tech consulting company for the past 6 years.  After getting her MBA, she joined the global consulting company Accenture until she decided to go independent. She went on to found Azmy Consulting, where for the past six years she’s been designing, managing, and implementing technology solutions for Fortune 500 companies.

What people in the tech and consulting world did not know about Gigi was that she studied personal development and advanced spiritual teachings on her own since she was 16 years old.  Outside of her consulting business, she began to step into her role as a mentor as people naturally began coming to her seeking guidance and eventually she was asked to start leading mindfulness trainings and coaching. In stepping into this role, she was able to understand and refine her innate ability to guide others. She uses this gift to help her clients unlock their next stage of advancement helping them access the power and truth latent within themselves.

She is co-founder of Urban Awakening where she has facilitated monthly and weekly mindfulness circles for the past 3 years in San Francisco. 


Jeremy Richardson is a successful entrepreneur, engineer, artist, and coach. He spent the first half of his career as Co-Founder of a technology startup, where he grew the company from two people to over 100 employees and $20 Million raised in venture funding over the course of 5 years.

In mid 2015, although the company was growing more than ever, Jeremy was being deeply called to explore life outside of the office. For the next year and a half he focused solely on bringing his deepest passions into the world. This path led him to creating Ascension - a 20 foot tall, two-ton steel sculpture that created a space for us to reimagine what it means to love others by first loving ourselves.

In seeing the profound positive impact Ascension had on thousands of people’s lives, Jeremy began to see the deeper role he is here to play: in helping people regain their own sense of power and self worth as sovereign conscious beings. Today, Jeremy fulfills this purpose through Awakened Living Academy, where he designs and facilitates powerful experiences that are aimed at helping people master themselves, their relationships, and their purpose in the world.

Our Values

We believe it’s important to clearly define WHO we will be as we strive to achieve our vision for the future. Every decision we make is rooted in our core values, as we grow and understand more about ourselves and how we want to show up in the world, our core values will change accordingly.

Be of Service

We always strive to be of our highest service in every interaction we have, no matter who it's with, what the context may be, or whether we will receive anything in return. Being of service is core to who we are.

Take Responsibility

We take 100% responsibility for creating the reality we live in. We know we have the power to choose how we experience everything life throws at us, and that there’s a positive lesson in every experience.

Embody Your Genius

We choose to fully embody our soul-level gifts and shine our light onto the world. Everyone is a divine being with something special and unique to offer.

No Limits

We practice self-awareness to identify and shed limiting beliefs so we can hold with clarity the vibration of the future we aim to manifest.


We set a direction, then let go. We trust our intuition and *feel* into the right next step. No matter what happens, we hold deep trust that all is happening exactly as it should.

Meet Fear with Love

When fear arises, it’s usually a sign that we’ve hit a self-imposed unconscious limitation about what’s possible in the world. When we meet these moments with love and compassion, they become our biggest opportunities for growth and expansion.


We understand the importance of maintaining balance across the mind, body, heart, and spirit. It’s through balance that we’re able to reach true alignment and answer our highest calling.


We have full trust that, no matter what happens, we are being divinely guided to live a life aligned with our highest potential. When challenges arise, all we have to do is let go and trust that ALL IS WELL.


We’re brutally honest with ourselves. When we recognize a misalignment on any level of our being, we’re not afraid to confront that truth and change what's necessary. We know we must have integrity in our inner world before our outer world reflects it.

Real, Open Communication

We practice open, raw communication. No sugar coating or passive aggressive words. Open, honest discussion creates real feedback, transparency and the ability to drive forward and create progress.
