Board Chair's Message

Greetings Members and extended Spiritual Community,

To all our members and extended spiritual community, we are in gratitude for your presence and sharing time with us here at World AWAKE. Many are excited about entering into a new year filled with hope and a desire to gather more often virtually via Zoom, much like our amazing conference we had this past November. We have many new events to share in this newsletter.

This loving testimonial is just one of so many we received from the conference that encourages us further to share more time together, and we would like to share it with you from Rev. Dr. Katherine O’Connell, Founder of East-West Seminary.

“Since the pandemic I have had the privilege of attending literally hundreds of workshops and presentations from around the world. This has been very exciting and informative. However, the World AWAKE virtual conference was like nothing else I have ever experienced virtually. The feeling of head and heart and body connection amongst the audience was palpable and moving. The heart and mind connection that each presenter facilitated for that conference is something I will never forget and always treasure.

I am blessed to be a member of such an organization!"

~ Rev. Dr. Katherine O’Connell

Let’s connect, gather, share, learn and grow in 2022!
