Board Chair's Message

We are in hopes that Spring has brought you abundant, radiant joy and happiness.

World AWAKE is so grateful to our members that have facilitated several online classes and workshops to expand our spiritual learning and development. From Clinical Pastoral Education, Sacred Wisdom to The Lord's Prayer in Aramaic; we are offering our members and communities around the world a wonderful spiritual platform.

We want to encourage everyone in our extended communities to sign up for any of the classes they feel called upon on our Education Page. Also, we want to remind our members that one of their benefits is they can teach online classes, workshops and we will promote them, all proceeds go to them as it is their class and teaching platform. If they feel called to donate back to World AWAKE, we have a button on our Education Page.

We have streamlined the process for our members to send in requests for the following: Online Class submission, Spiritual Store submission, Calendar submissions for promoting your events and Newsletter submissions for stories or member highlights.
