Dear Katie and Sundance,
I want to let the two of you know what a profound and lingering affect you had on me. As a long time student of Papaji as his assistant in India and the many teachers that have come to Boulder, please accept my deepest pranams for one of the most memorable teachings I have personally received in the last 18 years. You and Sundance make a great team. Your humor, love and deep caring were expressed so easily. The meditation was amazing. Your quiet and gentle approach awakened in a simple way the wonder of the non-dual presence. I look forward to be invited into this timeless embrace with you again. Safe travels …
~ Love, Chandra, Shankar Gallery, Boulder, Colorado
"Words cannot begin to express the depth of my appreciation and love for our time together at the Magnificence! Maui Retreat ... truly transformational. Magnificence was the perfect name for this retreat. It was truly of Divine essence in every moment. Thank you for allowing the space for it to unfold ... and for all you are. I love you so much ... through your example and sharings ... I awaken rapidly from the dream. Much love, big hugs, mahalo ...
~ Donna, Boulder, Colorado, USA
I am amazed that what you said is really coming back again and again to let me know it is true!!
It is permanent!!! Something has settled in me since meeting you that is indescribable. It is without words, is in the Silence, and has always been here!!!! Bless you my friend, I think this time 'it' really is here to stay. Hugs and Love ~ Peter, Vancouver BC, Canada
Wow. Since the Magnificence! Maui Retreat, I feel like my whole life has changed. In the days since leaving Maui, I have been experiencing unspeakable calm and serenity. I know I am not a different person it's just that I could not feel the stillness before. Now the silent spaces are everywhere. I pray I have the wisdom and dedication to meet the truth of who I am in the weeks ahead and that my choices support this intention. It's a little scary. Monday I go back to work, etc.......But that's future thinking........It will be what it is. I have my tools. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for your love and acceptance. The space you both created on Maui was truly sacred, like a gateway to myself, a bridge to other beings, and a soul reflection.
~ M. G., Seattle, Washington, USA
I just wanted to drop you a note regarding the Satsang Friday night. I have been to many Satsangs and have seen some of the most famous-- Gangaji, Adyashanti, Neelam, Pamela Wilson, Nirmala, etc---but I must say this was perhaps one of the best if not best Satsangs I have been in. The transmission was such a high frequency, I could "hear" it. The words were gentle pointers that somehow got me into the total awareness state easily. And I was in that flow for an extended time. Such peace. I hope you come back.
~ Attila, Boulder, Colorado
"Very nice to receive your Friends of the Heart Newsletter. We almost decided to come to Hawaii for the retreat. We were invited by a friend. We would have been there to see you, but we will stay in California this time. I hope we will meet again. It was great to meet an open heart and true reflection of Truth, pure and simple, with so much love. We came to your satsang in London, with my friend Maria, who now has left the body, but was ever grateful to be in the presence of free beings!! May your light shine and brighten the heavens of the earth, so much in thirst for it. May you be well, and safe, travelling and sharing your Light, beloved friend, in Peace" ~ Jaya and Krishna
Mahalo nui loa for the incredible Magnificence! Maui Retreat. The reverberations are still showing up as increased impeturbability. Like there is an open space for things to move through. Things in the past that I would have gripped against just flow by and I am not sure about this but it seems the welcoming has lessened the attraction of those old annoying things. It flows through instead of getting stuck. When a pinch does arise it easily moves to opening to it. Very little thoughts of past and future. This rich moment where I live is more than enough. Who knew, huh? I love basking in the beauty of you both. ~ C. S., Berry Creek, CA, USA
"Thank you Katie and Sundance for the opportunity to meet and share time with you. I feel a deepening within me and I seem to have the availablity of access to the beautiful space of consciousness, beyond the mind, more readily now. You both are true Masters , and the world is blessed by that. I will observe, notice and rest more now, allowing grace to do its work."
~ Peter, Vancouver BC, Canada
"Watching you on TV, has been deeply theraputic thru the most difficult time in my life. Wish there were more videos available -- but am grateful for the few I saw. It is a very special experience to listen to you." ~ S.
"Although Divine Consciousness has blessed this life many times, previously the clouds of personality have returned to obscured the view. But on awakening this morning, the day after you left, this awareness remains. There is now a permanent, unchanging recognition of my identity as Divine Self. Personality continues to function but now is seen from silent awareness. Peaceful joy is knocking on the door and this Heart opens in devotion and endless gratitude. As you know, this is the greatest of all blessings, a gift completely beyond price - and one that words cannot even begin to adequately express. So I thank you again for your loving devotion to sharing the joy and freedom of the Beloved.
~ Leo Hawkins, Bristol, England, author: Break Out of Your Mind!
Your book, Awake Joy is "right on" from my perspective and I am in tune with your approach and the Truth of Eternal bliss, joy, the Love of God as described in your book. Precious! Your writings help clarify and simplify the path to experience this blissful joy!
~ Jeanette, Sacramento. California
I just want to say that you had a great impact on me when I watched you on Conscious TV. You were so calm and said some great things that I felt in my body. I was immediately calm and listened to your words on Advaita Vedanta teachings. Thank you so much for the inspiration you have given me both on Conscious TV and on your website. ~ Pyriel
I really enjoyed the Satsang that took place in Bristol, England. At the time it was a wonderful experience and I got so much from it, but as time passed that evening and what I felt became even more profound. Amazing! I am really looking forward to future events and once again ...
Thank you very much for coming to Bristol and creating a special moment and heart felt memory. ~ Simon, Bristol, England
Dear Katie and Sundance, coming to your Satsang in Boulder was very special to me. The sitting in quietness with you in the beginning was so profoundly peaceful and connected; it brought warmth and joy to my heart, which stayed with me through your beautiful words afterwards in a dialogue full of humor and smiles between you two. After leaving the Satsang the peace and heartfeltness stayed with me. What a blessing to have met you both. In deep gratitude… ~ Antje, Boulder, Colorado
"I VERY-STRONGLY suggest you see the following video: Katie Davis ~ "Never Not Here" Chicago Television Show 26 at www.KatieDavis.org/FreeAwakeningVideosII.html. Here's my experience in a nutshell: I became very mentally quiet. I laid down on the floor and listened (rather than sitting up and watching) with my eyes closed and my attention on full.
I zoomed out from my little mind-made-sense-of-identity-as-scotty, a person. My identity shifted to being awareness, fully awake awareness, full of joy, with no need for more of anything.
Hope you have a similar experience with this video. It can be a real "Dream Crusher!" I first watched all of the videos on page 1 and this Show 26 is the last video on page 2. I have not yet watched the videos on her page III, etc.
Yes I cried, yes I wept tears as I heard these words of wisdom. They resonated with me and I recognized the truth in a deep dimension within, beyond my mental constructs, my neuro networks, my mental conditioning."

Dear Ones, [and I mean it :-)]
I want to express my gratitude for the (literally) mind-blowing few days spent in your blessed company. I've experienced the deepest peace and, to quote Rachel, 'I'm still flying'. Thank you!
I've sent the link to the pictures from Niagara. It was so beautiful.
~You're in my heart, Dorin, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Thank you again for providing clarity over the past few days and especially our private session. Spending time with you and Sundance was a blessing and I am more than thankful for it. Your joy pours over and it opened my heart. Thank you for being. One heart ...
Katie, We met in Dallas. I had a private talk with you. I am loving your book. I recently had an awakening to the heart. I was able to let go of my mind and experience God's love in my heart. I had an emotional release which was so freeing. You have contributed to this awareness. Love from my Heart to yours, ~ N., Dallas, Texas
Katie and Sundance,
I am so grateful for the gift of Peace that the two of you brought. Michael expressed delight with the clarity with which Awakened Joy was presented by the two of you this morning. This Satsang was beautiful and Powerful, truly Satsang. ~ R., Flagstaff, Arizona
Hi Katie & Sundance,
Thank you for a wonderful experience at the satsang last Sat. in the beautiful chapel of the Creative Life Center in Sedona. I enjoyed your message so much. I am a great fan of Eckhart Tolle, and I find your message to be right in line with Eckhart’s. Thx! Looking forward to this weekend. Love & blessings, ~ L., Sedona, Arizona
It was a huge pleasure to have you and Sundance ... still, inner silence that continues. The satsangs were beautiful and anyone I have spoken with who was there was deeply touched. Thank you both for all that you gave to us all. ~ L., Vancouver BC, Canada
Now I am living in Santa Cruz. You have suddenly been on my mind ... so I looked to see if by some chance you might be comming anywhere in California....So much seems to have transpired ... there is great Joy and appreciation so much more consistently ... and I have thought about you with such gratitude. Gratitude to life - that I had the opportunity to -be- with you so much while you were on Maui ... even when the sense of self arises it's experienced so much less as a problem ... just part of the scenery ... like thoughts ... like trees ... like a leaf blowing in the breeze ... it seems to come and go ... I find myself often spending hours in the woods in such a profound silent bliss ... just so grateful! I really feel the time with you was pivotal ... with you as no one else ... just pure love ... being ...always ... and (especially) always with you. There may not ever be the outer chance to spend time with you as I did on Maui ... still the Grace of the essence of those 'moments' lives on so abundantly ... tears of Absolute Joy ... what a radiantly alive Mystery! In Love with Love! I know you are so busy now ... still - if you are able - please let me know if you plan to be in California at all ... I would love to celebrate this Grace with you again ... even as one of many in an audience. ~ Always ... in Deep Appreciation. Aloha ... ~ B. Santa Cruz, California
I would like to thank you and Sundance for visiting CSL Carlsbad. The introduction you did on Wednesday night allowed the community to spend time with both of you and take a deeper look at how present they are in everyday activities. You then followed up with an all day intensive which took us deeper. You are both joyfilled and loving. Your presence alone encourages sharing and discussion. Thank you for doing the wonderful work you are doing. We would be honored to host you again. ~ Reverend Debby O'Donnell Carlsbad Center for Positive Living To be in the presence of these two awakened individuals, Katie Davis and Sundance Burke, is a treasure for the soul and the spirit. Although they spoke softly and deliberately, I was completely focused on what they had to say; my mind never wandered. Their gentle words and loving essence spoke directly to my inner soul. Their words spoke loudly of a Truth we don't often hear and it was delivered in ways that were understandable. I felt like I was receiving a personal blessing in the intimate setting of satsang. The spiritual Truth, the loving presence and the complete acceptance they provide are gifts that few teachers can offer. Both Katie and Sundance are very approachable and very real. For them, it is about the message and not about the money. If you get the opportunity to host or attend satsang with Katie and Sundance, I would not hesitate for a moment. ~ Reverend Janet Kingsley Church of Religious Science
Dear Katie and Sundance,
What an inspiring experience it was to have you here. Just to set aside the time to sit in sacred space with you helped me so much!
When you came I personally was going through a challenging time. This satsang was the best cure for that and I want to thank you for your clear, pure spiritual presence. By the time we finished on Saturday, I was so energized and anchored in Spirit that my sermon on Sunday was one of the best ever!
We all got deep answers as to who we really are - children of God - because of your presence. You are truly enlightened teachers. Peace and blessings, ~ Reverend Annette Drake, Pastor
First Church of Religious Science
It was so wonderful meeting you and Sundance. I can't imagine what life would be like to meet my divine counterpart. If I'm already happy, then I guess I would be doubly happy! I wanted to say congratulations and thank you on writing such a lovely and informative book for all of us progressing into ourselves. I can say now that I've read your book, that you are my Gangaji. You were my first encounter of unconditional love shining back at me. Your words of wisdom were perfect. Watching myself become emotional when talking with you in satsang was so great. It gave me the opportunity to see what that was about. Thank you! Reading your story was like reading mine. I can't imagine what it was like for you to go through this experience during that time.
I just loved how you explained the "reference points" in your book. It was so great to learn where I stand in this stage of the journey. Deep down, I had a good idea and you and your book reconfirmed it. The bliss you must be in to see shifts towards heaven happening in others in your presence. It was a blessing for me to have met you. ~ Christine, Portland, Oregon
Since the Rainier Retreat, I do not feel so many miles from you! I didn't even feel as though I was travelling very far coming home. My mind was relieved to take up the 'story' where it left off, or so it seems! It all feels different. So much pain arose at the retreat, shame and the deep sadness you speak of, I cried so much. This question 'is there anyone really here?' I am asking all the time and it takes me to a much lighter space. And it makes me laugh! The truth is quite funny. I feel a huge change within my 'self' and I welcome the gaps in between perception. Words cannot express my awe and gratitude. Thank you for your beautiful expression of Love. ~ E.C., Hong Kong
That setting, with all of you on that wonderful mountain, brought about a heightened attention to silence, to spaciousness. The heart opened in a manner that words cannot describe. Now, nearly a week later, the gift of that retreat is revealed in the greater tendency to be open to presence in daily activity. Again, many thanks for this opportunity.
~ F.C., Seattle, Washington
It amazes me, how life plays with me, with us, plays with Love...yes, the holy Mountain's presence is like a stronghold in my heart...it feels today. The retreat on that holy Mountain, your love and gentle kindness is a constant reminder of who I really am, pure consciousness, love and joy. Thank you, sweet angel Katie! It was perfection.
~ L.R., Tacoma, Washington
I am so grateful for you bringing us together for the Rainier Retreat. It was wonderful for me and I still feel it. What a wonderful structure to deepen my connection to the silence. Thank you again so much. ~ R.S., Orcas Island, Washington
I found that Monday after the retreat, as I worked alone for an 8-9 hour day, I was almost giddy, and enjoyed my work. Mistakes made me giggle. Tuesday, I began to tell stories again and became my old talkative self; but I noticed that now, I hesitate before I speak. I find myself not needing to talk as much, or at the least, I recognize that I am "self referencing" and that it is really unimportant. I am more tolerant and more at peace.
~ J.K., Kirkland, Washington
I have had the pleasure of being spiritually counseled by Katie Davis, both on the telephone and over the Internet. Katie holds a pure, loving energy which is very palpable and very present, in both her spoken and written words. Through her spiritual wisdom and knowing, Katie has clearly guided in resolving challenging issues in my life.
Katie is on the cutting edge of the spiritual transformation currently taking place on Planet Earth. She is a Catalyst for Change and a True Blessing to all who encounter her.
~ With blessings and love, David, Hollywood, Florida I have been working on an individual basis with Katie for a few weeks now and it’s been a revelation. My process has been accelerated and my freedom now seems immanent. Katie has shown me that what I am is already perfect. I just needed a wakeup call, which she is providing through weekly phone satsangs. I have been on the path for the last 30 years studying various forms of Advaita Vedanta and Tibetan Buddhism. ~ Jim, San Francisco, California After working with Katie for about six months, I can say that the generosity and the immediacy of her loving presence and the clarity of her wisdom has been a powerful help in my recognition of the presence and wisdom as my own true Self. For me, awakening SEEMS to come and go. Katie has persistently pointed my attention to that which has never come and gone. I am eternally grateful. ~Paul, Taos, New Mexico
Katie holds a space for the stillness and peace to come through for those who are ready to let the mind go and experience it. Her private sessions go right to the heart of the issues that need to be released. I have experienced and worked with many spiritual facilitators and can say in all sincerity that Katie’s facilitation is amazing. I always walk away with a sense of peace and joy that is attainable in these times of transformation. I have been on the pathway to enlightenment all my life…but consciously on it since 1987. ~Patricia, Washington
I don’t know that I’ve ever felt such powerful presence in a group setting as with Katie and Sundance. I’m amazed and encouraged by the growing interest in this work. My process of discovery started in the early 70’s, especially around some of the new psychotherapy treatments of the time, e.g. Primal Therapy, Gestault, etc. Various spiritual paths, e.g. Zen, Hindu, and others, opened up over time. I spent many years with Siddha Yoga (Baba Muctinanda). I started participating in a Krishnamurti dialogue group seven or eight years ago. A member of that group introduced me to Maharaj (I am That), Jean Klein (Ease of Being) and Eckhart Tolle. I am also a member of the Bellevue Institute for Noetic Science, where we dialogue on science/consciousness. In one form or another, I have been doing this for at least 25 years. ~ Fred, Seattle, Washington
Satsang with Katie and Sundance and working with Katie privately at her home have been exceptional. I gently shift from the outside noisy world to the peacefulness inside. I am fortunate that I live so close to this wealth of joy and am able to access it frequently.
~Gladys, Renton, Washington
Katie, thank you very much for your guidance and advice yesterday. It transformed my whole approach and attitude toward the person with whom I was having the conflict. I was able to meet her in the Now and so deal with the situation effectively. We both came to a workable, kind solution to the problem. I am grateful for your Presence and Love. Best wishes to you.
Katie Davis is the real thing. To sit with her is to sit with the Truth.
~Chris McCombs, Orcas Island, Washington
I have been on my pathway to enlightenment since the universe was created and ever since it was divided. My first soul memory was in Lemeuria utilizing crystals during healing. I have returned to continue these gifts and share with others along our path to enlightenment. Katie, that was a wonderful meditation session Wednesday. My senses noticed the wonderful energy upon arriving. Beautiful Feng Shui…the fresh flowers, chimes, lighting, etc. I was also feeling much loving angel energy that evening and felt blue and white radiating from your aura. The Stillness was profound……. Although we are all “one” with the universe, “me” really enjoyed listening to the “stories” and I will be back in two weeks to experience whatever and/or participate in what next unfolds. Thank you for providing the loving space. Peace and Love.
~ Karma, Redmond, Washington “I have been pursuing spiritual modalities my whole life. Non-dual teachers come through Seattle fairly regularly and I don’t miss many of them. I found Eckhart very well suited to me with his incredible clarity and hilarious humor. I have come to depend on visiting Katie and Sundance for my “retreats.” One feels so comfortable; so welcome; and best of all, so peaceful at their house. I love the growing crowds of wonderful people who show up, and the opportunity to raise (or is that lower) my consciousness, as we all sit in silence and then exchange dialogue. I find that I receive the same benefit being with Katie and Sundance, as I do with any satsang teacher. Katie and Sundance keep me reminded of what it’s all about. I am fortunate to be able to interact with them on such a regular basis. I’m honored.” ~ Jan, Kirkland, Washington I have basically been on the pathway to enlightenment my whole life. In your and Sundance’s presence, I am more aware, awakened to who I really am, or who I am not…I am not my body. I feel connected with you both on the heart level. ~Ludvig, Tacoma, Washington
I would like very much to spend more time around you and Sundance, and if there are ever any times where you need help doing just about anything, please call on me. I would love to help and to spend time with you both as well. There is a hungry part of me that wants more and more nourishment, and I just love the Katie and Sundance Bistro! As far as I am concerned, you could call the Sunday Satsangs, "Gourmet Satsang."
~ S.S., Seattle, Washington
