Metaphors for Spiritual Awakening

In this talk Doug and Catherine discuss the question ‘What is Awakening?’ Known by many terms in various traditions, spiritual awakening or enlightenment is about waking up to our true nature. Doug and Catherine explore several metaphors to help explain what spiritual awakening is and why the ego tends to ignore it in favour of getting caught up in the world of objects.
