The spiritual awakening journey is a wild rollercoaster ride to peace, clarity, happiness and joy!

When I began the Spiritual Awakening Journey, I had no idea what I was in for. I didn't understand what was happening to me or why I was becoming so discouraged with my current way of life. I knew very little about Human Behavior or spirituality, and as a consequence, I lived in an illusional prison of my own creation. This prison was a byproduct of following the ego's desires instead of my spiritual inner compass.

For thirty years I didn't want to see the truth. I simply wasn't ready. During those years if I looked at my life for real, I would have likely run for the hills to escape the nightmare my life had become. So to handle the insanity in my life, I kept my head buried in the sand and pretended things were different until my spiritual awakening journey began. It required becoming conscious to make actual sense of it all, which is what the spiritual awakening journey is all about. As my consciousness increased, I slowly began to see reality. Then I learned how to deal with that reality. The trick was not making a bigger mess of things with more unconscious choices. Seeing reality is very difficult at first and it can cause you to do some pretty crazy things, but eventually emerging clarity and understanding will help you process this new reality in a healthier, grounded way. I talk a lot about this in Our Book, "Manifesting Consciousness". In it I share my personal story about how the awakening process drastically changed my life and how those changes affected the way I perceived the world around me.

I won't kid you, the Awakening Process has been the most challenging thing I have ever experienced! However, it has also been the most rewarding, and I feel very blessed to be going through it with a
spiritual partner who is on a similar path. We hope that by sharing our story it will help validate and support anyone who is consciously going through the spiritual awakening journey.

Sharing this experience with my wife, has accelerated the process for both of us and it has helped us feel sane throughout some of the more challenging aspects the awakening process will put you through. As we studied material on the subject, we discovered many others who were going through the process and realized we were far from alone on this journey. We eventually came across some amazing teachers who were very conscious and/or Enlightened that offered us some very helpful information and validation. Some of the most profound teachers we dicovered are Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, and David R Hawkins. Of course there are many teachers in the world, and we have studied many, but these three in particular had the most profound affect on us.

Through their insights and experiences, we soon found validation in the stories they shared. The Spiritual Awakening Journey is still a rather rare experience on our planet, but those numbers are starting to rise, and I believe that it won't be long before awakening is considered main stream or even common place.

As I mentioned in the Spiritual Awakening page, it can be difficult to see your way clear in a world that still largely operates through the desires of the Ego, but try to be patient because a new path will unfold for you as your spiritual awakening journey begins. This will happen automatically when your are ready. So take comfort in knowing that if you are interested in this material your spiritual awakening journey has already begun, and now you are consciously participating and contributing to it's manifestation.

Our Awakening to Spirituality Workshop covers some of the struggles that accompany your emerging spirituality and we share our own personal experiences with the transition.

"It is not the world that is a trap, but one's attachment to it, along with one's observations that cloud the search for Truth."
David R Hawkins

"The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself."
Alan Alda

"The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death."
Thomas Paine

"Gloria in excelsis Deo"

"Sometimes people get the mistaken notion that spirituality is a separate department of life, the penthouse of existence. But rightly understood, it is a vital awareness that pervades all realms of our being."
David Steindl-Rast

"Yet it is in our idleness, in our dreams, that the submerged truth sometimes comes to the top."
Virginia Woolf


Once the
Spiritual Awakening Journey
has begun, you may start to discover that everything you thought you knew, is different than the reality you are now becoming aware of.
This can be shocking at first but try to be patient because the explanations are on their way.
As you venture further through the Spiritual Awakening Journey you will discover answers to questions you may have had your entire life.

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.
