Waking Up with Everyone Around Us

by Tej Steiner

A step-by-step guide, a book of poetry, a memoir, a life's work all blended together to form an alive manuscript for how we can support one another in Heart Awakening and co-creating a Culture of Connection. 

Heart Awakening is about a radical change of perception. Instead of feeling separated in life, we awaken into feeling connected to everything and everyone. It’s an evolutionary leap that gives us amplified access to reciprocal love and collaborative wisdom. 

In the past, only a handful of people awakened during any given era. Today, there are millions of people awakening all at once. This is new. Something else is new. You and I are included in the millions of people awakening. 

The timing for our collective bloom couldn’t be better. More than anything else, our planet has a rising fever and requires unprecedented cooperation to bring her temperature down. Our survival depends upon our awakening together. 

This book is about Heart Awakening, but not in the way you might expect. Instead of presenting some new or old way to awaken individually, I'm sharing specific, reliable ways we can change our existing friendships, families and organizations so that they support us in Heart Awakening rather than hinder us. This book is a guide or blueprint showing one way in which we can do this. 

This is a new kind of book. I’ll think you’ll like what’s in here.

Let me know!

Just finished the book... feeling a lot. Inspired by your willingness to still do this...sit in circle...offer the possibility of others sitting in circle. I feel the part of me that feels a hopelessness. I am not afraid to look at that..to explore the 5 ways of being around that feeling. Immensely grateful for the read...touched so many parts of me...so many experiences, and the longing for new ones. I am an explorer...a wanderer...a lover of truth, and this is a lovely guide to have on that journey.

I have been a part of a Men’s Heart Circle for over 3 years. This books explains the reason we continue to do it and why we will continue to participate for the rest of our lives. It’s written by the man that helped us start our group. It’s ideas and “ways of being” are extremely relevant and useful in today’s society. It can be used in everyone’s life and I guarantee you will gain immense perspective from it’s contents. If you only listen or read one thing ever, this is it! Thank you so much for your 6 years of hard work Tej Steiner!

No wonder this book took so long to write and rewrite. Now, I can really feel your heart as I read its words. It should be required reading for all on a journey of discovery!

Wow.....I am in awe, and feeling great admiration for what you have expressed in these pages of your book.

I really loved it. I liked its clear expression, simplicity of its telling, it’s setting out and matter of factness plus its functionality. I think it’s a great book, and a wonderful tool to have and keep for self reflection as well as a guide book to begin and run circles. The feeling for me throughout reading was light and actually being able to set up circles seemed very achievable to do.

I think that in a way with some people I have been doing one-on-one circles for a while in its essence without realizing it! Now I just need to put it consciously into agreement with them.

Thank you for writing it and putting it out there!

I just finished your book. VERY, very good all the way. Thank you so much for the countless hours you spent creating it in order to let us hear “your voice” in the clearest way you are capable of. I expect to be reading it again soon as I move to create several heart circles.

Tej Steiner has written an amazing book about his life’s work in facilitating community, business, family circles. His book is a beautiful sharing of his journey into presence - it is a book filled with poetry (his) and shared distillations of his simple guidelines for achieving authenticity and presence while in the presence of others.

I want to support your incredible work!

I took time, writing poetry myself, to read through all your incredible poems! Awe inspiring! Powerful! Beautiful. My favorites are the hawks and looking up at drunk birds flying! Communicating with nature and animals for 20 years, I was laughing with joy and giggling all over! I will now laugh more too, as I see them fly in and out of my yard or in front of my car with such incredibly joy! I never thought of referring to them in this way! Drunk on love! The second was Getting Free. Having raised and loved goats, the image was even more meaningful for me. They certainly would eat whatever you fed them, as some people tend to do at times as well!

I so hope this book ends up in the hands of millions of readers whose gifts they are hungry and thirsty for!

Much love and infinite abundance in all areas of your life where you seek what you desire.

I have a client who was traumatized in her job as a maternity nurse by abusive medical practices and bullying by doctors and head nurses. I read her “The Maternity Ward” just now and it opened up a whole new level of releasing for her. Tears and coughing for 20-30 minutes, and I cried too. Amazing poem.
