Welcome from our Founder, Reverend Nancy Ballinger

Welcome, to AWAKENING, a divine idea that is unfolding on the Central Coast of California.

As we enter our 14th year of ministry, AWAKENING Interfaith Spiritual Community continues to be a place of healing, growing, and actively experiencing the truth of the Divine within.

Through the teachings of Kriya Yoga we come to be more fully awakened to the essential truth of who and what we are as manifestations of the One Truth known by many names.

Like waves on the ocean are the same as the sea, so is all life.  We are one with each other, our earth and our Source - coming and going like the waves yet,  always and ultimately, returning to wholeness and union. This is the mystery at the heart of the spiritual quest, that which calls us to become knowers of the truth of God and of ourselves.

If you are in seeking inclusive, interfaith teachings leading to religious harmony and peaceful right action in the world I invite you to check out our website now and come back often. If you are local come to a class, meditation, or community event. We are always adding new ways to experience the teachings and a path to spiritually conscious, fulfilled living in the world.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you stay for a while, and come back often.

Namaste, Reverence to the Divine within you,
Rev. Ballinger Signature
