Event description
Awaken 2022 is where you can find hope, inspiration and insights for your post-Evangelical journey.

About this event

Is there life after religion? Where do you turn for truth after you've doubted your faith?After you've deconstructed Christianity, what's next?

Let's gather together to find common ground and practical resources for reconstructing our faith in God, Christ, Spirituality, and everything else.

Our guides for this journey are:

JIM PALMER is the Founder of the Center for Non-Religious Spirituality. He is an acclaimed author, Certified Spiritual Director, Religious Trauma Counselor, and Chaplain with the American Humanist Association. Jim believes in the universal relevance of spirituality for cultivating a life of meaning, and building a world of compassion, harmony, and flourishing.

KEITH GILES is a former pastor who left the pulpit to follow Jesus and started a church in SoCal where all the offerings were given away to the poor in the community. Today he is the best-selling author of the "Jesus Un" book series and leads the Square 1 deconstruction/reconstruction community and online course, helping dozens of people to process their deconversion and exodus from the Evangelical faith.

DEREK WEBB is a 20+ year music industry veteran, who sold millions of albums as a founding member of Texas-based folk/rock band Caedmon’s Call and ruffled political & spiritual feathers alike during his nearly 20-year solo career. He is also founder of the revolutionary tribe-building platform NoiseTrade (acquired by Paste Magazine in 2019), MiddleClassMusician.com, an online course crafted to teach artists how to make both music & money, and The Airing of Grief podcast, discussing stories of spiritual de & reconstruction.

His album TARGETS, a defiantly joyous rock n roll album about love and unbelief, was released into the world in February of 2020. The record is an intimate ode to freedom, weaving through Webb’s personal stories, questions, fears, and experiences.

In 2021, Webb embarked on a journey to conceptualize, write, and record his new album, The Jesus Hypothesis, live and in real-time through the membership platform, Patreon. Here, patrons get a unique insider’s look at the process of making an album and exploring belief through livestreamed writing sessions, demos of the songs, and behind-the-scenes commentary in a bi-weekly podcast

MICHELLE COLLINS served in the US Marine Corps and is currently pursuing a Doctorate in Psychology as well as additional degrees in Biblical Studies and Christian Counseling. She is the host of the "Book-Ish" podcast and the author of Into the Gray: The Mental and Emotional Aftermath of Spiritual Deconstruction.

BRANDON DRAGAN is the author of The Wages of Grace. He grew up in northeastern New Jersey and attended Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. He is currently a 2L Juris Doctor candidate at Belmont University College of Law. Brandon enjoys road cycling, cigars, Irish whisky, and is an avid supporter of the Arsenal Football Club. He and his wife Jami live in the Nashville area with their two daughters.

more speakers/artists to be announced soon.
