What we're about

May 2021 COVID-19 UPDATE: In 2020 an email was sent out to Awakening Asheville advising all in-person meetups should be postponed or moved to virtual attendance only. As of May 2021, event hosts can have in person gatherings at their own safety preparations and discretion. Please direct question/concerns to the contact listed on the event if you need need more information. Thank you, and be well! Courtney

We are an LGBTQ+ BIPOC safe spiritual group that enjoys the coming together of community lightworkers sharing our journeys. We offer meditations, healing energy, and many different workshops. Come join us!

We welcome everyone and encourage all to share their expertise and offerings. If you have an event or gathering you wish to share, please contact the group organizer for postings. There is no charge to post, but in exchange for being able to promote for free, we encourage event hosts to offer something at no cost at some point, so the knowledge and spiritual expansion of this group can be available to all regardless of their finances.
