We did it!

A huge thank you to the 170 or so souls - staff and participants - who joined us for AwakeningSoul 2020. Together we experienced a community of sanctuary, sustenance, and inspiration.


We initially thought that we would restrict the viewing of the AwakeningSoul 2020 content to those who had paid the registration fee. After the weekend many participants asked how they could share the recorded presentations with friends and colleagues.   

We have decided that it is important for any and every interested person to have access to the content.

Links to all sessions can be found here.

If you were not part of the AwakeningSoul 2020 gathering and after viewing the recordings feel moved to support our work

We will be prepared to share our plans for 2021 by February 1st


AwakeningSoul - offering sanctuary, sustenance, and inspiration since 2011
a sacred space of hospitality where we can find rest, respite, and renewal
abundant food for hungry souls; intellectual and spiritual nourishment that both challenges and nurtures
deep conversation, uplifting music, evocative art and spirit-filled worship, encouraging us to look deeply into our lives and choices, energizing us as we return to our communities

A Taste of the AwakeningSoul Experience -



We believe ...

that we all need a place, set apart from the busy-ness of our everyday world, to reflect on our journeys. We need to set aside time when we can examine our lives and ask ‘what do I believe and how are these beliefs being lived out in my life? Who does my life and work serve?’ Our hope is that our AwakeningSoul gatherings create a sacred space where this work of the soul can be done, and that in our coming together we will all be affirmed that we do not journey alone.
