Welcome to Waking Down in Mutuality®

Thank you for your interest in exploring this remarkable opportunity – to Wake Down in Mutuality! However you’ve arrived, welcome. People are visiting us here at this site from all over the world, and we’re delighted to introduce you to what we’re offering.

The evidence has been consistently showing up for nearly 20 years: time and again, this life-path or Way works amazingly well for people who seriously desire embodied spiritual Awakening.

The great majority of people who engage it steadily do in fact enter stable, permanent, non-separate, deeply grounded Oneness with the great Mystery of life.

Not only that, most of them do that within several months to several years.

What about you? What brings you here?

It may be a passionate yearning for your own embodied spiritual Awakening. It could just be curiosity – but it could also be a hunger at your core for something fundamental. For a new, confident depth of integrity. An unshakable connection with your essence that also puts you in touch with all of life in a deeper way. It could be all of the above.

And you might also have a desire to be in contact with other people who feel similarly, people who – like you – are looking for real, authentic, live and enlivening connections and communication among the mountains of deadening information we all get barraged with every day.

Whatever has attracted you, we’re confident that our growing worldwide community of Waking Down teachers, mentors, and practitioners can be of help to you. Click to find out more about...

Ten Reasons Why Waking Down Works So Well

for people who want to Awaken whole-bodily
and live an authentic conscious life

  1. Waking Down “greenlights” every part of who you have been, are, and are becoming ... The whole spirit of the Waking Down work continually says “YES!” to your whole being. [Click on any reason for more info.]

  2. Waking Down is democratic, warmly humane, pragmatic, experiential, and “sticky” ... There is no pecking order in terms of personal worthiness or having your voice heard.

  3. Waking Down is ego-friendly and ego-transcending ... Yes, that’s right: both or “both/and.” Your fundamental, individual sense of “I” or “me” gets included in this approach.

  4. Waking Down is generated from the very root-source of your life and awareness. ... In this work, you soon recognize that the state-of-the-art evolutionary force of transformation you’re plugged into is self-activating from your own source.

  5. Waking Down is transmission-activated ... This work relies most in the early phases on your receiving and metabolizing the transmission of the Awakened condition, principally from awakened Waking Down teachers.

  6. Waking Down is NOT cookie-cutter, regimented, hierarchical, or dissociative ... It’s not one-size-fits-all, so that everyone does the same practices. It’s uniquely tailored to each individual.

  7. Waking Down is Matter-positive, body-positive, and Earthly life-positive as well as Spirit-positive ... We see Matter as being equally real, divine, and important as Spirit.

  8. Waking Down is a welcoming melting pot from the global living lineage of spirituality – where something new is always cooking! ... People have come into Waking Down, and continue to, from many different schools, traditions, lineages and teachings.

  9. Waking Down is you-centric and us-centric, not tradition-centric, doctrine-centric, or teacher-centric ... Waking Down is aspirant-centric.

  10. Waking Down is an unstoppable, bio-spiritually natural evolutionary event ... Once the Sun in your heart is activated, not even your most broken zones can prevent it from rising.

One way you can do that is by listening to one or more of the 1-hour discussions of why this Way can work for you in our free seminar series, “Why Waking Down Can Work for YOU.” Each discussion features a brief presentation by one or both of us on how Waking Down works so well, as well as more on why, and includes practical information on what learning and practicing this work entails.

There are questions from participants and we occasionally give information about Waking Down events and offerings online and in our regional communities.
