Welcome To SimplyAwake.com

HomeIf you’re visiting my website, I know that you’re looking for answers to your suffering.  Perhaps you even aspire to experience Enlightenment.  You want the promised end to all unnecessary suffering talked about by the Buddha and others.

I created Simply Awake, both as a place for therapy and as group and online courses that are: A Direct Path to Enlightenment.  My promise to you is that through the introduction of simple practices that can be done in the course of your normal day, and an introduction of certain simple principles or concepts about being human, in a year’s time you’ll drastically reduce your suffering and have a clear understanding of what Enlightenment is, and how to discover it.

By the end of our work, you will be well on your way to spiritual Enlightenment or already recognizing this as the fundamental condition that defines you.  Your center of gravity will be moving from the Dreamstate (composed of thoughts and feelings based on falsehoods) to an encounter of your internal Awareness with the rest of Reality.  You will enjoy an increasing daily experience of the peace that passes understanding, and a decreasing experience of unnecessary suffering.
