Technically, an awakening experience is a brief increase of CQ resulting from a temporary removal of Bodily Ego defences, either spontaneously, by engaging in Connection Practice, or using Connection Supplements. An awakening experience leads to significant, insight, realization -- a notable expansion of awareness and understanding.

For an awakening experience to be productive, it must be accompanied by acceptance, Accountability, and Atonement.

Awakening experiences are isolated and discrete events. Awakening experiences may be distinguished from the Awakening process, which is a process that occurs as the consequence of maturation, education, and the accumulation of discrete Connection Experiences.

Martin Bidney [1] recounts an awakening experience of Tolstoy, whose experience with a talented peasant boy radically changed his perception of meaning and life.
