Awakenings Institute realizes its mission one person at a time with the dream of creating a growing network of heart-centered individuals who have the skills they need to activate their full potential and do something meaningful with their lives,

Awakenings Institute's Mission and Dream

As an integral part Awakenings Institute, IAHP shares this dream:

Imagine a world where love is the guiding force,
where the unique gifts 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 Awakenings' 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 brings us closer to making this dream a reality. We have an inherent connection with something that’s greater than ourselves. As we evolve, 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.

then they seem improbable, and then when we summon the will, 
they soon become inevitable.”
