Changing seasons greetings, !!!name!!!,

Board Chair's Message

As we turn the corner toward the Fall season, the days are becoming cooler and our leaves here in the Midwest are already changing colors.

We are in hopes that you all are navigating your way through these changing times and know we are here to connect. From all of us here at World AWAKE, we continue to send forth comforting prayers to you and your beloveds.

Our schedule, education, resources and leadership council are expanding.

We have expanded our education page that offers CE to obtain recognition as a “Practitioner” via ACPE, facilitated by Dr. P.T. Wilson. This program is offered online with an excellent discount for World AWAKE members.
