Welcome to the Awakening Souls Peer Group page! We are a group of ET Contact Experiencers who have learned to move beyond fear to a deeper understanding of the true meaning of contact. Our purpose is to reach out to one another with compassion and support. Our minimum requirement is for our members to be ET contact experiencers with memory of our events and what we have learned from our ET visitors. Please read "Our Vision" and our facilitators' biographical profiles. 

Our Vision

     We are living at a unique time on our beautiful planet. For many of us who have experienced contact with ETs and non-human entities we can feel an intense calling  inviting us to be free, to be part of the answer, and to assist others who are just beginning to wake up to their interactions with what we believe are extraterrestrial visitors. 

     This group, "Awakening Souls," emerged from a great desire to be of service to other experiencers who are letting go of the old paradigm of fear and separation and are courageously beginning to accept a world based on love and oneness. A great shift in humanity is presently taking place on our planet. Experiencers of contact with non-human intelligence are coming together in greater understanding and compassion. Our vision is that we can help one another move toward positive transformation.  

     If you resonate to what has been shared, find yourself wanting to discover your unique purpose, and discover how you can be of service to others, then you might want to explore these questions with us. 

     There are millions of experiencers around the world, each is living his or her life on our beautiful planet. We share a common thread that is not widespread among our fellow humans. We have psychic awareness, altruistic feelings, and increased spirituality. We sense that we have a greater purpose in life but may not be certain of what it is. Together we can find the answers as we move toward the expansion of consciousness in our journey toward transformation. 

     Will you join us on this journey of discovery at our monthly Zoom meeting?  

Awakening Souls Facilitators

We have a uniquely personal perspective on our lives as experiencers of contact. We do not share a common history. But we have come together for a collective purpose. Won’t you join us at our monthly meeting on our mutual journey toward understanding?

Denise Stoner

     Until Denise began to work directly with Kathleen Marden she was suffering from disconnected memories and unreasonable fear of the dark, places with large pipes and dim lights to name just a few. Clowns with what she calls “False Faces” haunted her dreams and waking hours. Denise had no idea who she could safely talk to so kept everything locked inside her.

     Denise has always had a strong desire to help others. Seeking ways to give this support, she searched various avenues to find the correct way to comfort others feeling the fearfulness and uncertainty she once had regarding her many experiences with the Greys. She became certified in hypnosis with the intent of helping some of those she spoke with to bring some of their disconnected memories together. She discovered that just listening to an individual’s story made a huge difference in their lives.

     As the fear left Denise, a better understanding of the “experiencer” phenomena took the place of fear and uncertainty. Denise facilitates private meetings for experiencers, twice per year, allowing guests to share and speak to each other. She is now doing research in Past Lives with those who are interested in whether they had experiences with UFOs and ETs while living other lives. She supports other experiencers in their need to overcome the fear living inside them every day.  Working with Kathleen Marden, has brought healing and great comfort that now allows Denise to give back to those who suffer needlessly. She believes, that there needs to be a giant combined effort made to have others join in on this exciting path.

Kathleen Marden

     There was a time when Kathleen was entombed in a fearful shell, terrified of being taken by the Grey non-human entities who inserted themselves into her and her family’s lives. Rising during the night required an act of courage to overcome her trepidation. Like so many other experiencers she suffered from anxiety and trauma causally related to her contact experiences. She could not find the help she was seeking even though she met with major researchers. It seemed that they were only interested in her story, not in reassuring her that she would be okay. She had promised herself that her abduction experiences would never see the light of day. They would forever remain locked inside her frightful shell.

     Later in life, hypnosis by a kind, compassionate practitioner (Denise Stoner) unearthed memories of a pleasant tingling sensation and an intense sense of love and appreciation directed toward her by the non-humans of whom she was terrified. She began to overcome her disquieting emotions and move beyond a researcher's admonition, earlier in life, that E.T.s cannot be trusted. "They lie." 

     This launched her in a whole new direction, one of moving beyond fear. She conditioned herself by employing self-hypnosis for rapid induction and learned to project love toward her ET visitors despite her initial fight or flight response. This conditioned approach enabled her to grow spiritually,  psychically, and emotionally. It carried her to a deeper understanding, beyond fear and loathing. She no longer views herself as a victim. but as a survivor and carrier of information. This new perspective has changed everything. 

     For 32+ years, she has been an advocate for experiencers through research studies, writing, education, peer support, and hypnosis. Now she is excited to join others on a journey to discovery, to take the next step into understanding the true meaning of ET contact.
