BEV UPSHUR is the latest addition to my Enlightenment Life List. BEV has also gone onto the separate list I maintain for people from this community who have moved into that higher state of consciousness. In her honor, today’s article explores how my Enlightenment Coaching DOES and DOESN’T work.
Whether you call it Householder Enlightenment, spiritual awakening (as an established state of consciousness), Self-Realization, or psychological self-actualization…
