Don Oakley

Don's talks point the listener to the fact that awakening is not something you attain but a recognition of what you already are: “Awakening always exists right here and now, and is just waiting with utmost patience for you to notice.”

Don and his wife, Patty, are the founders of the Well Being Retreat Center in Tazewell, Tennessee. Through group and personal retreats and other events, the center promotes harmony with nature, wellness of body, and peace of mind. Learn more at http://www.wellbeingretreatcenter.org./
