Awakenings Institute was founded by Drs. Phillip and Jane Mountrose, who currently co-direct the Institute. We invite you to join us, wherever you are, in whatever way you feel called to participate. Together, we can create a new path that others can follow and play a role in making the world a more loving, peaceful, and joyful place. By joining together, each of us has greater impact. We can create an appropriate form for the realization of our dreams.

Awakenings Institute was born with this dream:

Imagine a world where love is the guiding force,
where the unique gifts that each individual brings receive honor and respect,
where all are nurtured in allowing their gifts to blossom,
to manifest the joy of living in each moment…

Imagine a world where all of nature is also honored,
so all may live in harmony and share an increasingly vibrant
and beautiful environment…

What we imagine we can create, starting in this moment.
This vibrant world will come into being as each of us empowers ourselves
to live the dream now and share it with others.
Playing a part in the creation of this dream is the mission of Awakenings.

In this dream, there is no poverty, because everyone is nurtured and loved. This love also eliminates the focus on fear and separation as we bridge the divisions created by race, creed, and national borders to co-exist together in harmony. The environment synchronously benefits everyone, as people all over the world shift their focus to a more holistic approach that creates balance rather than congesting our home planet with chemicals and toxic fumes.

Increasing our connections with our wholeness, which we may experience as God, the Creator, Source or simply Oneness, brings us closer to making this dream a reality. We have an inherent connection with divine order. As we evolve spiritually, we unite more with our inner wisdom, which, in turn, strengthens our connection with all-that-is. This evolutionary quest is an upward spiral, taking us to higher levels of consciousness and wholeness.

How You Can Participate

With the creation of a new path and a place of belonging, we can collectively make positive changes in the world. Awakenings invites you to join us by participating in any of our programs. Each of us can participate in the invention of a new spiritual presence within our society, and make the dream a reality.

“So many of our dreams at first seem impossible,
then they seem improbable,
and then when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.”

A Glimpse of the Future of Awakenings Institute

Awakenings is currently seeking to obtain facilities along the central California coast to create a Holistic Healing Center. It is envisioned as a peaceful, loving environment where all are welcome to come for rejuvenation, or to attend a variety of classes and retreats, along with housing Awakenings’ administrative facilities.

A tax-deductible donation of suitable land or facilities would be most welcome and would contribute positively to the support of many people on their evolutionary journeys.

“Make this your time. Awakenings Institute can support you in realizing your purpose and helping to create a more loving and joyful world.”
