Shades of Awakening is an online community platform that provides a compassionate container to explore contexts for extreme mental, emotional, and spiritual states.
Shades provides greater exposure and visibility to people and projects looking to transform how we perceive and treat non-ordinary states of consciousness.
Join Shades of Awakening as we expand to create:
- Regular Online Roundtable Discussions to bring these crucial discussions to center stage.
- A Learning Lab chock full of educational resources.
- Events like Shades Story Share to experience the healing power of telling our stories to peers with lived experience.
- Shades News an online newsletter to inform us of available tools that heal as we empower the voice of the movement and create greater awareness of these states of consciousness.
Together we can harness the power of our grassroots community to provide programming and safe spaces to connect and serve those integrating from their experiences.
Thank you for being a part of our unique and much needed Community!
Shades grew out of an online Summit in 2015 that brought together twelve speakers to discuss healthy responses to non ordinary states of consciousness. From this series, a large international online community was born that today reaches over 4500 members and growing.
We continue to bring visibility to current initiatives and projects happening around the world, strengthening our network and bringing greater awareness to the need for compassionate, transpersonal approaches to extreme states.
Shades exists to help you open up to an integrated life in alignment with your highest Self as you develop your gifts, find purpose and mission in life, awaken to unconditional love and acceptance, and build your connection with Spirit.
Today, Shades provides an active forum on Facebook that has been described as a safe haven, a quiet within the storm, a space of inspiration, and a community for all shades of awakening.
Whether you are in the midst of a spiritual emergence(y), dark night of the soul, hidden or anonymous, integration, service, and/or leadership, you have a place here.
We need each other to know what’s possible.
