Really Helpful Organizations

We've recently redesigned and updated our AwakeningSoul website.  You'll find information about the 'who, why and what' of this progressive collaboration. This is the place to go to find out more about the events and gatherings that AwakeningSoul will host in 2013 and in the coming years.  This November we'll be joined by author and teacher Lauren Winner, and Jungian analyst Jerry Wright, with music hosted by a wonderful ensemble; Fran will be joined by Lindsey Blount [vocals] River Guerguerian [percussion], Charles Milling [bass and vocals] and Duncan Wickel [violin uilleann pipes]. Brian Prior, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of MN will be weaving our liturgy. Ann Holtz and Diana McKendree will be facilitating our evening conversations.  Join us for what will be a soulful and enriching four days in the mountains of western NC.   www.awakeningsoulpresents.orggeese_sunrise_resized.JPG
