New Year's Greeting to all of our AwakeningSoul friends -

Fran McKendree and I would like to invite you to watch this short video to get a feel for the AwakeningSoul experience.

If you have been with us in the past, we hope the video brings back fond memories. If you haven't yet attended an AwakeningSoul gathering, we hope this glimpse into what we are about helps encourage you to say "yes, I want to be a part of this."
