KATIE DAVIS is a spiritual teacher and author who offers satsang worldwide. She is a graduate of the University of Washington, a former secondary school educator, a former owner of aerobics studios in the Pacific Northwest and mother of two.
She is author of Awake Joy: The Essence of Enlightenment and since 1999, she has been traveling to share with people the radical possibility of Self-realization that is the end of all suffering, separation and the key to world transformation.
Katie Davis was a Keynote Presenter at the Vancouver BC Convention Centre in Canada. She offers spiritual talks at church services or spiritual gatherings, corporations, hospitals, professional communities and organizations, schools, television and radio shows, as well as for community organizers worldwide that are offering talks in the form of satsang in public meetings, intensives and silent retreats.
In 1986, Katie Davis radically and spontaneously awakened to the ultimate reality of who we really are without practices or teachers. She had never meditated or even heard of enlightenment, Advaita Vedanta, Non-duality or Self-realization. Katie had no intellectual reference whatsoever for what had occurred.
In 1988, Katie met her future husband, Sundance Burke, author of Free Spirit: A Guide to Enlightened Being, who had similarly awakened in 1982 with Satoshi (Osho) and Shunyata, named the Rare Born Mystic by his friend, Ramana Maharshi, one of the most cherished sages of modern day India.
Katie Davis is a world spiritual teacher and a current resident of Seattle, Washington, USA.
“Just as you wake up from a nightmare and then feel relieved to discover that you have only been dreaming, you can wake up from this daytime dream of the mind to realize that who you actually are is completely beyond the mind, its emotions and body. Self-realization is complete and utter fulfillment. It is the end of all suffering and separation. It is also the conscious beginning of perfect peace. However, this is far more than a personal affair. As the consciousness transforms, that is as the false states fall away, so does the world transform. So, Self-realization is not a trivial matter. With enlightenment, a genuine and enduring world peace is a true possibility.” ~ Katie Davis, Spiritual Teacher and Author, Awake Joy
AWAKE TEACHINGS have helped many people throughout the world to find inner peace, wise love and greater fulfillment in their lives. At the heart of the teachings is a spiritual awakening that transcends the ego-based state of consciousness into the harmony and unity of pure consciousness and then realizes a field of infinite possibility that is the Heart of all being. These teachings are not conceptually based, but rather based upon direct Self-realization, and therefore they are profoundly energetic, powerful and still.
