The Awakening

S1:Ep113 Minutes

Something deep within calls us to grow, awaken, and evolve. Paul Muller-Ortega Ph.D explains that Awakening is distinct from Enlightenment, because it represents the initial glimpse or acknowledgment that sparks the individual to know themself more deeply. Paul Muller-Ortega shares that awakening is often accompanied by periods of deep self-inquiry as we begin to question everything that was previously unexamined. Questions such as “Who am I? Why do I do this work? What is my life’s purpose?” take on new significance. An intelligently designed set of practices, or sadhana, can serve as a tool to bolster and engage with this initial awakening. This support enables us to feel internally guided, encouraging us towards a lifelong journey of profound self-discovery.
