Our definition of consciousness is an explanation, description, and meaning of
"Emerging Consciousness" as it is used in this website.

Our best Definition of Consciousness is Awakening to reality. That "reality" is the understanding that we are more than this physical being which is influenced by the deceptions of the ego in our unconscious state.

The definition of consciousness, is the awareness of life, relationships, struggle, death, and spirituality along with the conscious understanding of our divine purpose and spiritual essence. In short, it means becoming self-aware or self-realized.

Many people wake up from a good nights sleep and think they are conscious, and in a way they are. However, this state of consciousness has little to do with the consciousness I'm defining.

When I look at all the people walking around, I don't see people who are aware of reality. I see unconscious beings who are sleepwalking through life, oblivious to the effect they have on others. They seem to behave purely from a standpoint of what can be personally gained at any given moment. I even recognize unconscious behavior in myself when I'm angry or depressed, and I watch as clarity recedes and the illusion takes over.

There are many different levels of consciousness but until the awakening process begins you are essentially asleep. Consequently, the only thing that will have value for you will reside in the physical realm which is finite and therefore ultimately not real.

So the definition of consciousness refers to an awakened state which transcends the illusional life of the physical that the ego has created.

David R Hawkins is the leading authority on consciousness work. His work includes the creation of the "scale and map of consciousness", the explanation of kundalini energy, the use and reference to 12 step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous that deal with issues like alcoholism and drug abuse, "A Course In Miracles", and many other helpful topics.

"New insights fail to get put into practice because they conflict with deeply held internal images of how the world works ... images that limit us to familiar ways of thinking and acting. That is why the discipline of managing mental models -- surfacing, testing, and improving our internal pictures of how the world works -- promises to be a major breakthrough for learning organizations."
Peter Senge (Author and Faculty Member at MIT)

Re-defining our
Definition of Consciousness
is important to understanding a new context that Consciousness encapsulates.
We must try to remain open minded as our definition of consciousness changes due to divine intervention and inspiration.

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.

The teachings of:

David R Hawkins
Byron Katie
Eckhart Tolle
Taylor Hartman
have been fundamental in guiding us on the path towards enlightenment.

The culmination of everything we have experienced and learned
has led us to write our own book titled:
Manifesting Consciousness

A Personal Journey Through The Awakening Process

we can eliminate fear and darkness by shining the light of truth upon it.


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.
