Happiness is our God given right as human beings!

True happiness is achieved and experienced by turning your search inward. Self-awareness is the key to your salvation and the avenue for creating a higher quality of life. By facing your inner demons, which are stressful thoughts created by the deceptions of the ego and social conditioning, you will eventually transcend your fears and insecurities that are standing in the way of true peace, joy and love.

Facing your inner demons and becoming self-aware is the toughest and most important step towards inner peace. Our book "Manifesting Consciousness" in addition to our "Workshops", will provide you the tools and information to assist you on this transformational journey by providing you real life examples that demonstrate the challenges and pitfalls you may encounter on your journey.

Finding Happiness Workshop

I just want to be HAPPY! Or, I just want to experience happiness. Has there ever been a more universal statement? I've never met a single person who did not possess this desire. So how do we go about finding the ever elusive happiness we seek? And if it's true that everyone wants to be happy, why do so few of us actually achieve true and lasting happiness?

The ego often confuses happiness with pleasure or the absence of pain, resulting in most of us at some point becoming pleasure seekers. Avoidance of pain is strong in people that we will do almost anything to escape it! We frequently lie to ourselves, use superficial distractions, drink alcohol, take drugs, thrill seek or even delve into a project, hobby, study group or noble cause to dull our awareness and avoid taking responsibility for the state of our lives.

One of the most beloved ways of distraction is through acquisition. We set our sights on something we think we want and set about trying to acquire it because we believe that once we have it we will finally be happy. We think that when we get the new car or the new house it will bring us the security and social status we so desperately want. But for those of us who have achieved the luxuries in life; a bigger house, an impressive car, a better job, more money, we realize that the acquisition can be exciting for a time but the feeling never lasts. Eventually the new car becomes an old one, your neighbor builds a bigger house and there is always someone with a better job, making much more money.

So we learn from our mistake and get smarter a fooling ourselves. We realize that our goals were just physical pleasures that can't possibly bring true meaning to our lives so we say, maybe I don't need a new job but I certainly need to be respected in my current one. After all, everyone needs respect in order to feel appreciated and valued right? And as long as I'm improving my life, I could stand to loose twenty pounds; I know I'd like myself more if I lost weight. We justify this new direction by the guise of becoming a better person and think these new goals are much less shallow.

And here is the most prized achievement in the search for happiness, that sits at the top of the heap for almost everyone on the planet. We believe with every fiber of our being that if we just could find the right partner; the person who will love us unconditionally, someone who will care about what we think and support us through every endeavor. We think if only we had that special person, life would be complete and blissful.

Ironically, unconditional love may indeed be the key to finding lasting joy and fulfilment, but the journey is never what we expect and the result is likely to be better than we can imagine. In our video workshops we share personal stories of our own road to joy and expose the fallacies and pre-conceived ideas we have about love and relationships.

Join us for an in-depth look at why our striving for happiness is so often a failed attempt.

In our "Finding Happiness Workshop" we will discuss:

The true source of Love
The meaning of Forgiveness
Radical Kindness and Compassion
Gratitude vs. Depression
Eliminating food for the Ego

This workshop will be available soon!

"Gloria in excelsis Deo"

"We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same."
Anne Frank

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.
