For a Taste of the AwakeningSoul Experience -


Come for ...
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
AwakeningSoul banners and stage


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.
