How do we awaken here and now as everyday people?

Awakening is not just about Waking Up –- to realize the Mystery of our Infinite Nature. It’s also about Waking DOWN -- into life, our bodies, our issues, and relating to others in Mutuality with honor and authenticity. These are the insights of Saniel Bonder, founder of the Waking Down in Mutuality teaching.

Our gatherings include silent meditation, mutual gazing meditation, and conscious sharing in a safe container that facilitates deep trust.

We offer compassionate listening to each other as we explore embodied awakening in mutually conscious relationship, and we practice acceptance in Being with whatever is happening in the moment, without pressure to redirect things or "fix" ourselves. Transformation happens readily and organically through the wisdom of Being, in each person’s right timing.

Come to a Waking Down in Mutuality Meetup and give yourself the chance to steep in a sacred space dedicated entirely to the deepening recognition of all that we are, as a platform for individual and collective evolution.

You may have an extensive spiritual history, or little, or none. You may feel hunger, dissatisfaction, pain, or futility, and that's OK -- we'll meet you wherever you are at.

We welcome you to join this collaborative exploration of Embodied Awakening!



We encourage you to read a little about Waking Down in Mutuality before attending one of our gatherings so you have some context and can optimize your experience. In particular, we recommend these essays:

"Saniel Bonder is one in whom the Conscious Principle is awakened, and he is attempting to forge a new path of mutuality in the midst of ordinary, messy, everyday realities and Linda Groves-Bonder is a brilliant teacher in her own right."    

—Ken Wilber, author of Integral Spirituality, founder of Integral Institute
