"Bringing us Together"

President’s Comments  – October 1, 2020

Spiritual Awakenings International (SAI) Presents is a great success! Since the launch of SAI in June we’ve had 3 amazing SAI Presents events, each that sold out!  Registrations exceeded our maximum capacity, which exceeded our wildest expectations.  Thank you everyone for your enthusiasm and support!  Unfortunately Diane Willis became ill and could not make her scheduled presentation on September 19, but we will reschedule her for another date.
Sept. 19, 2020 presentation on Kundalini and Near-Death Experiences: A Yogic Perspective, by Dr. Yvonne Kason. Due to Diane’s last minute cancellation, in order not to disappoint all the registrants arriving at our scheduled SAI Zoom event, I became the back-up speaker and presented my talk on Kundalini and Near-Death Experiences on September 19. I was delighted and amazed that nobody left the event, even though this was a last minute change in speaker and topic. Thank you everyone!  The video of this talk is posted on the events “videos” page on our SAI website for those of you who would like to see it.

Upcoming Spiritual Awakenings International Presents events expand our STE focus. We are planning to bring speakers focused on new and different STE related topics to our upcoming SAI Presents events.  We have confirmed future speakers on such topics as: Spiritual Emergencies; “seeing” or mediumship; Deathbed dreams and visions; Spiritist Healers; Kundalini Awakenings; After-Death Communications; and trans-dimensional STEs including UFO encounters (on the recommendation of Dr. Kenneth Ring). We hope that you will all enjoy these fascinating  speakers.

Veterans/Remembrance Day Event – Launch of the Veterans, Military, and First Responders Program.  Please join us on Veteran’s Day/Remembrance Day, November 11, 2020 for our very first event of our Veterans, Military and First Responders Program.  We plan to make Veterans Day/ Remembrance Day an annual special event hosted by SAI, to explore the special issues faced by military STE Experiencers, and to express support and our gratitude to our veterans for their service..

Enhancing our international focus to “Bring Us Together”.  To enhance our international status we are looking forward to going “down under” to Australia, with Dr. Nicole Gruel’s October 17 presentation, co-sponsored by Sydney IANDS, and Agents of Awesome.  Then on November 21, we will be going “across the pond” to England with Raymond O’Brien’s presentation, co-sponsored by the Past Life Podcast (both based in the UK).

Thank you to our new subscribers and new affiliated groups worldwide.  We are delighted that in just two months we have grown to have 500 subscribers in 22 countries around the world, on 6 continents – on  every continent except Antarctica!  We wish to say thank-you and acknowledge the new groups and networks who have affiliated with SAI in the last month.

President’s Comments

Spiritual Awakenings International (SAI) would like to thank all those individuals and groups who have affiliated with our organization.  Thank you!  Since our launch on June 15, 2020, SAI has welcomed affiliated groups from 5 countries spanning 4 continents, and we currently have 417 subscribers living in 20 different countries on 6 continents, every continent except Antarctica!  We are truly emerging as a global community. How wonderful and exciting!

By Experiencers, for Experiencers.  SAI is determined to keep up with the rapid growth of our organization, and we want to thank all those individuals and groups who have chosen to be part of the SAI global family.

“Spiritual Awakenings International Presents”. We hope that you will all enjoy the fascinating online speakers we have scheduled for our “Spiritual Awakenings International Presents” online events.  On July 18, 2020 we had our inaugural event, when I as President and Co-Founder of SAI was the first speaker, on “Discovering STEs: My inner and outer Journey”.  We were amazed at the large number of you who signed up for this event.  This far exceeded our expectations and we are grateful for it.  It brought up a good problem, the need to expand our teleconferencing abilities to accommodate such a large audience!  For those of you who missed this event or couldn’t get in to it, the video is now posted on our SAI website, on the video page (in the Events pop-down menu).  More information can be found in my book: Touched by the Light

Upcoming SAI Presents speakers.  We will strive to schedule both international and North American speakers, to reflect our diverse global community.  We will also strive to invite diverse speakers, Experiencers as well as counselors and researchers, to present on a wide range of STE types, their after-effects, the blessings, and the challenges. If you would like to be a speaker at one of our upcoming SAI Presents events, or if you have a request for a future speaker, please let us know at .

First SAI International Conference.  SAI is currently thinking about scheduling its first conference which would include an induction ceremony for our SAI Circle of Honor honorees.  Due to the covid 19 pandemic, we cannot yet finalize our conference dates and plans until things become safe for such a face-to-face gathering.

Help us spread the word. Thank you everyone for your support, and please help us at this time of growth by spreading the word about Spiritual Awakenings International, and by encouraging others to subscribe!

Thank you. On behalf of the SAI Board of Directors and Advisory Board, I thank each and every one of you for making Spiritual Awakenings International a successful worldwide emerging organization, raising awareness globally about STEs and our true spiritual nature.

With gratitude to you all,

Yvonne Kason MD
