"Awakening is waking up from the daytime dream and realizing that who you thought you were is not limited to thought, emotion or form. Beyond the imaginary seeker; beyond concepts and beliefs, there is a field of innocence and purity. We are this deep peace and sacredness, which is absolute and beyond all intellectual understanding. I invite you to recognize this Essence of Being and to directly realize the illusion of all psychological suffering due to misidentification, misperception of separation, and attachment to conditioned thought." ~ Katie Davis, Author, Awake Joy
Katie Davis, Author of "Awake Joy," Biography and Spontaneous Awakening
KATIE DAVIS is a spiritual teacher and author who offers satsang worldwide. She is a graduate of the University of Washington, a former secondary school educator, a former owner of aerobics studios in the Pacific Northwest and mother of two.
She is author of Awake Joy: The Essence of Enlightenment and since 1999, she has been traveling to share with people the radical possibility of Self-realization that is the end of all suffering, separation and the key to world transformation.
Katie Davis was a Keynote Presenter at the Vancouver BC Convention Centre in Canada. She offers spiritual talks at church services or spiritual gatherings, corporations, hospitals, professional communities and organizations, schools, television and radio shows, as well as for community organizers worldwide that are offering talks in the form of satsang in public meetings, intensives and silent retreats.
In 1986, Katie Davis radically and spontaneously awakened to the ultimate reality of who we really are without practices or teachers. She had never meditated or even heard of enlightenment or Self-realization. Katie had no intellectual reference whatsoever for what had occurred.
In 1988, Katie met her future husband, Sundance Burke, author of Free Spirit: A Guide to Enlightened Being, who had similarly awakened in 1982 with Satoshi (Osho/Nisargadatta influence) and Shunyata, named the Rare Born Mystic by his friend, Ramana Maharshi, one of the most cherished sages of modern day India.
Sundance and Katie are world satsang teachers and current residents of Seattle, Washington, USA.
“Just as you wake up from a nightmare and then feel relieved to discover that you have only been dreaming, you can wake up from this daytime dream of the mind to realize that who you actually are is completely beyond the mind, its emotions and body. Self-realization is complete and utter fulfillment. It is the end of all suffering and separation. It is also the conscious beginning of perfect peace. However, this is far more than a personal affair. As the consciousness transforms, that is as the false states fall away, so does the world transform. So, Self-realization is not a trivial matter. With enlightenment, a genuine and enduring world peace is a true possibility.” ~ Katie Davis
AWAKE TEACHINGS have helped many people throughout the world to find inner peace, radiant love and utter fulfillment. At the heart of the teachings is a spiritual awakening that transcends the ego-based state of consciousness into the harmony of pure consciousness to realize the Heart of all being. These teachings are not conceptually based, but rather based upon Self-realization, and therefore they are profoundly energetic, powerful and still.
