The Five Pillars of Awakening

April 12, 2010 By: Matsya Siosal Category: Living with Intention, Teachers, Teachings


I see them as the pillars of a temple. A temple of pure, infinite being.

In the same way that a pillar actually holds the structure of the temple up, these are the poles that we need to plant and cultivate within ourself to enable everything to open up.

Spiritual teacher, counselor and author Miranda Macpherson says that your soul knows the way, and when we learn to work with it, instead of interfering or judging our own process we begin to encounter an inherent intelligence deep within – our inner teacher. When we awaken these Five Pillars we can inquire and be taught directly by life, by our own experience.

Click here to view the 11 minute video (#9 in the list) titled The Five Pillars of Awakening, where Miranda tells us what these five pillars are and ways we can approach their cultivation.

Miranda Macpherson is a spiritual teacher, counselor and author of the spiritual guidebook Boundless Love. She began her spiritual path at the age of thirteen after a powerful initial awakening. Miranda has been teaching internationally since 1995 and is known for her depth of presence, clarity, and refined capacity to guide people into direct experience of the sacred.

Miranda’s spiritual training began in her teen years and she has written and taught extensively on these areas of study internationally. In her twenties, Miranda completed seminary training in which she studied the world’s spiritual traditions, their distinctions and the universal thread than runs through them all. She was ordained an interfaith minister in 1995 in New York. A year later, she founded the ground breaking educational organization The Interfaith Seminary in London, where she was spiritual director for a decade.

In her thirties, Miranda was graced by a profound nondual awakening in the cave of Ramana Maharshi in India. This silent transmission of pure being beyond mind had a lasting impact on her awareness and changed the orientation of her life and teaching. She is currently launching The Feminine Wisdom School a new one-year program with Lama Palden and Sherry Anderson.

Miranda is based in the San Fransisco bay area, and is writing a book on embodied awakening.
