Board Chair's Message

Greetings Members and Spiritual Communities,

The Board of Directors have been really busy with coordinating so many new upcoming events, classes and our exciting virtual conference/retreat for 2021. Next week, we will be sending out a “Save The Date” announcement and more information about our conference/retreat. Everyone will be invited to register and attend this very special and experiential event.

I want to extend a heartfelt gratitude to all our members of World AWAKE, Reciprocal partners and Business Affiliates who attended our “Members Celebration” on Thursday, February 25th. It was a delightful time to connect and celebrate one another. A gentle reminder to our members about the event for NAMI, March 23rd, 2021 beginning at 6:30 PM ET.

World AWAKE is so delighted to welcome “Morning Star Centers for Spiritual Living” as our reciprocal partners. Thank you for all you do.
Rhonda Schienle

Blessings and Gratitude
