Ongoing Awakening

An Study Group to Live More Deeply from Your Spiritual Nature

A Program of:

Thrive and Awaken   horizontal reg


This Group is Ongoing and Meeting Regularly


Deepening Presence® explores the infinite expressions of our spiritual nature.  This in-depth study group integrates practices of mindfulness, meditation, breath work, movement, and inquiry while using tools from Energy Medicine, Energy Psychology, and the wisdom of the Enneagram.  We explore the steps and tools needed to move from our reactive survival mode into thriving mode.   These practices help to shift the habitual aspects of our personalities to reveal our most radiant and loving nature.

There are three Levels to Deepening Presence®.  They guide you through the steps we take in moving from our normal survival mode into thriving and awakening modes.  We all have automatic habitual reactions to life that are formed because of influences from our family history, culture, and biology.  Level I of Deepening Presence® prepares you for awakening by walking you through 6 steps required to shift from the reactive Survival Mode into Thriving Mode.  Level II takes you through 6 additional steps in moving from Thriving Mode to Awakening Mode.  Level III focuses on our continued awakening.

Level III:  Ongoing Awakening          

  • Exploring in more depth the Steps from Surviving to Thriving to Awakening
  • Awakening as an Infinite Unfolding
  • Integrating Presence into Daily Life
  • Discovering the Qualities of True Nature Within
  • Living as True Nature

A New Series Starting on 9/14/22

Deepening Presence® Level III is for those who have finished Level I & II of Deepening Presence®, or who have done significant personal transformation and spiritual work through other paths. 

Level III explores in more depth the 6 steps from Surviving to Thriving and the 6 steps from Thriving to Awakening.  We will experience awakening as a constant unfolding into the mystery of the unknown.  Sessions will also focus on how to integrate such presence into our daily lives.  We are shifting from Doing as our primary focus into Being as primary regardless of what we are doing.  All activity becomes an opportunity to experience Presence in the moment.  As we do that, different qualities of deepest nature emerge such as compassion, unconditional love, and radical acceptance.  Level III supports the emergence of these qualities and learning how to live as them.

Much of this coursework evolved from years of collaboration with Kathleen B. Corcoran, Ph.D.and the Surviving to Thriving model we developed. I also collaborated with Jane L. Eckert, Ph.D. in developing Enneagram Dynamics.  I’m grateful for these partnerships that have enhanced and inspired the work.  


Total cost is $700 and may be divided into 4 payments of $175 due on 8/5/22, 10/26/22, 12/21/22, & 2/15/22.  Please consider this series like a class, you pay for the entire class whether you miss or withdraw.  If you have to miss a particular session, it will be taped and made available on the website.

If you are currently coping with significant emotional issues, this may not be the right time to be in such a group.  If in therapy, discuss with your therapist if this group is in your best interest.  All you need is a stableness & readiness to let go of old habitual ways of being and a desire to deepen into your Spiritual Nature.

It is helpful to be familiar with the following books from Levels I & II: The Wisdom of the Enneagram by Riso and Hudson.  Personality Types by Riso & Hudson & Spiritual Dimensions of the Enneagram by Sandra Maitri.
