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, and relating to others in Mutuality with honor and authenticity. These are the insights of Saniel Bonder, founder of the Waking Down teaching.

Waking Down is really is a sacred integration of consciousness and body; and a transforming engagement with others in mutually conscious relationship. We offer compassionate listening to each other in mutuality as we explore embodied awakening, and practice acceptance in Being with whatever is happening in the moment, without pressure to redirect it. Transformation happens readily and organically through the wisdom of Being, in each person’s right timing. We see awakening as a platform for further evolution.

Our gatherings, called sittings, will include silent meditation, mutual gazing, and conscious sharing in a setting that facilitates embodied trust.

Come to a Waking Down Meetup and give yourself the chance to steep in a sacred space dedicated entirely to the deepening recognition of all that we are. 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.

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