We invite you to journey with AwakeningSoul into the virtual world of spiritual community. Since 2011, it has been our intention to offer Sanctuary – Sustenance – Inspiration at all of our four-day gatherings. In this time of uncertainty and national turmoil we know that these are needed now more than ever.

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

We are designing a virtual event that we believe will have all of the components that have always made AwakeningSoul special – compelling presentations, creative worship, live spontaneous music, the opportunity for informal conversations, and both silent and facilitated reflection … all forming a container where deep soul work can be done.

AwakeningSoul 2020 - A Virtual Gathering will be experienced through Zoom. Recordings of the presentations, worship, meditations, and concert will be available to participants via direct link and the AwakeningSoul 2020 Facebook Group.

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.
