Sunday, the 13th of October, marks the 5-year anniversary of the day that everything fell away for me, the day that awareness became aware of itself within the context of ‘me’.  In conjunction, I’ll be launching a new Campaign of Consciousness; a special 9-week series of on-line group and private sessions – all offered freely from the heart…

A Campaign of Consciousness

14 October – 8 December 2019


This online event series includes seven free group sessions and three free private one-on-one sessions, all hosted via Zoom and FacebookLive.

If you are interested in participating, please just send me a quick e-mail at bradley@awakeningintolife.com.   You’ll receive a detailed e-mail response with all of the information needed to schedule your private sessions and attend the group sessions.  Everything is optional though.  You can come and go as you please, participating only in those sessions which resonate with you.

Did you miss a session?  That’s okay!  You can join at any time…  just send me an e-mail as described above and we’ll get you squared away. 

Note: While primarily presented in a nondual spiritual context, the themes and methods that we’ll be discussing are also represented within psychological theories and therapeutic models such as Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Internal Family Systems Theory, Dialectic Behavior Theory, Jungian Theory, Existential Theory, Transpersonal Theory, and more…  The entire series is FREE – with no hidden catches, will be hosted on-line, and includes both private and group sessions that are ultimately designed to instill a greater sense of peace, joy, and connection within ourselves and the world of our experience.  We hope to see you there.


***First Private Session***

  • Your Journey So Far (Should be scheduled to take place between 14 and 20 October):  In this session we’ll discuss what your life and spiritual journey have looked like so far, where you feel confused or challenged, and what you hope to get out of this series as we work together in the spirit of mutual curiosity. 

First Group Session

  • Tilting in the Direction of Awakening (Sunday, 20 October, 8 pm – 9:30 pm EST):  In this session, we’ll talk about the nature of an authentic spiritual awakening as a ‘seeing through’ of conceptual reality, into the infinite space of our Being which ultimately leads to a completely embodied expression of wisdom, compassion, joy, and virtue. 

Second Group Session

  • Loving, Trusting, and Honoring Yourself (Sunday, 27 October, 8 pm – 9:30 pm EST):  In this session, we’ll explore the sense of unworthiness that so many of us experience in our daily lives, and how to begin loving ourselves, trusting ourselves, and honoring the journey that is unfolding before us until we arrive at a state of greater peace and harmony within ourselves. 

Third Group Session

  • Practicing Mindfulness and Meditation (Sunday, 3 November, 8 pm – 9:30 pm EST):  In this session, we’ll discuss the purpose and foundations of mindfulness, and explore a variety of meditation and self-inquiry techniques that can serve as practical tools throughout the awakening process and help us move through whatever is arising in the present moment. 

Fourth Group Session

  • Facing and Letting Go of Your Pain (Sunday, 10 November, 8 pm – 9:30 pm EST):  In this session, we’ll discuss the challenging topic of psychological suffering and what it’s inviting us to investigate, address, or let go of; revealing deep insights about how our attachments are exposed in the light of awareness and present us with an opportunity for true healing.

***Second Private Session***

  • How Are You Doing? (Should be scheduled to take place between 11 and 17 November):  In this session, which takes place after the group session on “Facing and Letting Go of Your Pain”, we’ll discuss any difficult issues or challenges that may have come up for you while working within yourself to process the content.

Fifth Group Session

  • Paying Attention to Synchronicity (Sunday, 17 November, 8 pm – 9:30 pm EST):  In this session, we’ll discuss the phenomena of synchronicity as the language of the universe that is teaching us, guiding us, and revealing our true essential nature, the timeless perfection of being, and the intelligent aliveness of life that is ever-present and unerring in its wisdom.

Sixth Group Session

  • Being Wary of Your Traps (Sunday, 24 November, 8 pm – 9:30 pm EST):  In this session, we’ll talk about the appearance of ‘traps’; what they are, how they ensnare us and what they have to teach us as we fall down, get up, and fall down again, over and over until we’ve learned how to walk the infinite last mile in complete acceptance of life’s great mystery.  

Seventh Group Session

  • The Dance of Fear and Surrender (Sunday, 1 December, 8 pm – 9:30 pm EST):  In our final group session, we’ll revisit the major themes that have been addressed during this series and discuss the appearance of fear, uncertainty, and doubt that will present itself at each stage of the awakening journey – how to be with it, move beyond it, and learn from it.

***Third Private Session***

  • Your Journey Forward (Should be scheduled to take place between 2 and 8 December):  In this session, which takes place the week following the end of the series, we’ll discuss your experiences with the course, any comments or feedback that you may have, and how you plan to integrate the materials into your life. 

Getting Signed Up:  If you are interested in participating, please just send me a quick e-mail at bradley@awakeningintolife.com.   You’ll receive a detailed e-mail response with all of the information needed to schedule your private sessions and attend the group sessions.

Satsang…  a spiritual discourse or sacred gathering that explores the nature of Truth.

An Introduction to Nonduality: The Sacred Heart of All Traditions

Many people are unfamiliar with this word ‘nonduality’.  If it does have a ring of familiarity, it’s usually associated with eastern traditions like Buddhism and Hinduism, and yet a quick review of works like ‘Intimacy with God’, by Father Thomas Keating, or ‘Everything Belongs’ by Father Richard Rohr, we see that nonduality is indeed essential to Christianity.  The book ‘Everything is God: The Radical Path of Nondual Judiasm’, by Jay Michaelson, makes it easily accessible to those of the Jewish faith.  Nonduality is at the core of Sufi mysticism in Islam, and written about extensively in the poetry of Rumi, Hafiz, and many more.  There is also nondual Shamanism as presented by Jason Schulman in his book ‘The Nondual Shaman’, or the sacred ways of the Lakota people as spoken of by Black Elk.  It is of course central to Taoism, to all contemplative Yoga’s, and to all other mystical or esoteric paths that turn one inside – toward the dissolving of all illusions.  In his seminal work ‘The Perennial Philosophy’, famed author Aldus Huxley explained that the same basic themes are repeated over and over again throughout every spiritual and philosophical tradition.  If we look for ourselves and do our own research, it becomes clear that nonduality has something very powerful and important to say about who we truly are and what life is really all about. That’s why it keeps showing up as a common theme, as an underlying principle – and that’s why you’re being invited into it right now…  

Come join us on Sunday, 20 January, for an open discourse on nonduality and its presence in all of the various places that we might look, sincerely, for truth.  We will be meeting in the park, at Winter Park from 3pm to 5pm, near the Harp fountain.  All are welcome to attend.  No familiarity with nonduality is required.  Please feel free to bring a blanket or chair to sit on, since we will be meeting in the park.  If it is raining, we will be meeting at the Winter Park Starbucks instead that’s just down Park Ave.   If you need any further guidance or directions, or have any questions, please feel free to text of call Bradley at 425-233-2571.
