ABOUT US: The Awakening Workshop - Travis and Deniece Dumont
Travis and Deniece Dumont An Awakening Spiritual Partnership!
About Us; From the very first day of our union, Deniece and I have been on an accelerated journey towards self-awareness, the discovery of truth, and higher consciousness.
We quickly found that, "Two heads are better than one" and "Where two or more are gathered in His name" expresses the dynamic of our union and the accelerated rate in which we have progressed throughout the awakening process.
My wife and I each bring a unique perspective, and our own personal experiences to the union, that combined with increasing consciousness, have provided a wealth of understanding about Human Behavior and the Ego's role in our lives.
At times our marriage has been difficult, even more than turbulent relationships in the past, yet it has also been by far the most rewarding because of the personal growth we have gained. The best thing about us is that nothing remains unspoken and we always continue to engage in discussion until we see eye to eye on the particular subject matter. After having many failed relationships we realize what a rare gift this partnership is.
Embarking on the journey towards Awakening with a person whom you love, respect, and appreciate creates a conducive environment in which to recognize the ego at work as it mirrors its insanity back to you from the other. If you remain present in each moment, the ego becomes evident through the judgments you project on all those around you. Once the judgment is seen as a proclamation of the ego, you have empowered yourself to change the false perception.
Our lives were interrupted, and our previous direction dramatically altered, just as we found one another. Our union, or Spiritual Partnership, started us down a road toward inner peace and happiness. Filled to the brim with self-induced isolation, misery, pain, suffering and disappointment, we were finally ready to be open to another way and took the leap into the great unknown. Desiring only to be together at first, fear immediately surfaced over whether I was doing the right thing by leaving my previous family considering the harsh consequences I was suffering. However, in my darkest hour during our first week together, I was shown waking visions of our future. Those visions changed the course of my life forever. Not only did I find a loving relationship, more importantly, my life became a search for truth. We were driven to discover the truth about relationships, the meaning of life, and primarily, the truth about our shadow selves.
The deceptions of the mind and the Ego has affected our species for thousands of years, and as a consequence, our world's operating system is structured on Fear Based ideals such as Wealth, Fame, Greed and Power. Fortunately, within my new union, we began to see beyond those deceptions, and beyond a life that was limited to them. We had a powerful desire to find happiness, at any cost. We weren't concerned about worldly success but found ways to provide for our minimum needs (or maybe I should say that our needs were provided for) and our search for a different way of life commenced.
The Ego has a way of convincing us that the pursuit of financial security, power over others, or being better is justified and that if we are successful in those acquisitions, we will find the elusive happiness we all seek. Unfortunately, when we arrive at any worldly success, we find that it is hollow, and devoid of meaning or any semblance of joy. But the ego is relentless THAT'S ITS JOB!! The only question that remains is "What master will you serve?"
As we begin to awaken, Consciousness pours in and exposes the lies the Ego has told, in turn illuminating a new perception of the world and it's construct. This awareness helps us see ourselves and the world at large much differently, and can significantly change the way we conduct and experience our lives.
The best thing About Us, is that our union is based on love, honesty, integrity, and the desire to become ever more self-aware. I have come to see through personal experience that this kind of spiritual partnership can be elusive; that this type of Relationship, while it is available to everyone, is not a desire we all share. Most of us want the fantasy of love, not the reality of it. I chased the fantasy of love my entire life only to discover that love can't be experienced by receiving it from another, it can only be experienced once you love yourself and when you love others. We have discovered that marriage and spiritual partnerships, are actually for the purpose of self-discovery and learning to love rather than being loved, leading us to wholeness and joy!
Our lives are dedicated to personal growth, along with sharing what we have come to understand while on this journey. It is our sincere wish that everyone can experience life beyond fear and misery, and to understand what true meaning and authenticity looks like.

The Goal of this Website:
The Awakening Workshop's primary purpose is to help others transform their experience of life into one that is authentic and joyous by providing resources and personal examples to assist in becoming self-realized and conscious of reality.
Our workshops provide the "tools" and support to help you create a happy, peaceful life!
In sharing our experiences, along with the challenges and pitfalls that accompanied them, we hope to bridge the gap between the message of great spiritual masters throughout history by showing how their teachings play out in everyday life.
Facing one's fears, insecurities, and suppressed pain, is a monumental undertaking, but with help and guidance, you will discover that no challenge is to difficult to handle and no obstacle is to high to climb.
