The Enlightenment Experience groups (now called Living Awake Groups) offer the direct experience of the awakened state of consciousness. Through simple group practices we open to an energy and state of consciousness that is beyond our sense of separation and limitation. We realize our intrinsic freedom, love, peace and bliss. The longer we remain in this wonderful experience the more it permeates the rest of our life and transforms us. It is a coming Home to our True Original Self. You can find out more about the Enlightenment Experience here What Is The Enlightenment Experience?
The Enlightenment Experience groups meet each Wednesday at 7:00 pm and each Saturday at noon Pacific Time at the Sedona Zendo of the Awakened Heart in West Sedona, Arizona and on-line.

What people are saying:
They say “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”
I had started to discover the benefits of noticing awareness, and then the Enlightenment Experience groups “appeared”. I have found myself getting up every week at 2.30am to sit in a wonderful group in peace, love and bliss.
Words cannot express my gratitude.

I really appreciate your groups and what you have to offer. I agree that most people are confused or triggered when they see the title of your group, because there are so many teachers throwing around the word enlightenment as though their workshop is going to produce the experience. Your background and traditions are such that you are using simple and powerful techniques that bring a person into Presence very quickly. Although it is in a sense an individual experience, and enlightenment is not necessarily permanent or guaranteed, students have an opportunity to sit with an awakened being who can help them unravel the knots and gameplaying mechanisms of the ego. Students have always known for thousands of years that being in the presence of an awakened one also facilitates their own awakening. You have helped me end the struggle, and the waffling back and forth between techniques which bore some fruit but continued to produce a lot of the same unhealthy mental/emotional patterns. I prayed for a long time to find an awakened teacher. I’m so glad that it happens to be in my town just a few streets away.

I woke up this morning elated. I’ve just been bouncing around happily. Reaching a solid state of peace/bliss that seems very persistent. Yay!
Thanks for the wonderful session last night.

I have had a more clear direct experience of spacious awareness with the separate self falling away in Peter’s Enlightenment Experience group. With his guidance and my willingness, it was effortless and joyful. I am also accessing this spacious boundary-less oneness more easily as I experience that it is always here.
IT cannot not be here.
I am very grateful.
Thank you Peter

I was deeply moved by the meditation class last week. I felt my heart expanding and connecting to my mom in a deep way. My mom appreciated being part of the group awareness when I told her about it. She understands completely.
I have come to see and feel the process of her passing as receiving more and more of her energy as the places her mortal self occupied leave. I just keep filling up those spaces with her essence.
Your meditations with me have helped so much.
Tonight I’ll miss the class because I have a friend visiting from out of town. I look forward to seeing you and the group next week. Here’s a picture of us.
Having the privilege to share this sense of expanding into the observer or “zooming out” with others really solidifies the experience and makes it somehow more “real” than just doing it alone. Really grateful for you all for that.

I loved our session last night. It is magical.
– Edith Scripps
That was really great this afternoon, Peter. I still feel reverberations, though not so strong as when we were exploring together. That felt like freedom.
– Carolyn Marsden
Again, I had an amazing experience this last Monday. And it is still inside of me and dwelling! After the self-inquiry I developed this wonderful feeling of love and joy bubbling in me and soothing me. Rather than worrying about stuff i felt more trust. And the feeling is still here even 4 days after. It is truly amazing and I am so grateful to learn from this group. Thank you Peter.
