Who Are Revs. Drs. Bil and Cher Holton?
Combine a flair for the dramatic, a deep understanding of MetaSpiritual teachings, an ability to think outside the box, and a knack for bringing scientific research and spiritual practices to life in practical ways, and you have defined the dynamic duo who are at the heart of The Global Center for Spiritual Awakening.
Revs. Drs. Bil and Cher Holton bring quite a background of experience and depth of knowledge to this special ministry. It all began back in 1984, when together they founded The Holton Consulting Group, Inc., which is still alive and well today! They have worked with clients in the U.S., Canada, Germany, England, and South America, with a mission of leading, guiding, and inspiring people and organizations to live productively and joyfully at the speed of life … one choice at a time. Their impressive client list includes Fortune 100 companies, healthcare facilities, universities, associations and government agencies.
As a subsidiary of their consulting firm, the Holtons created two publishing enterprises: Liberty Publishing Group (focusing on professional and personal development publications) and Prosperity Publishing House (focusing on books for spiritual enrichment and education). They have published over 50 titles, including The Manager’s Short Course to a Long Career (ISBN1-893095-00-2) which was selected by SoundView Executive Summaries as one of their Top 30 Business Books, and New Metaphysical Versions of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John — the first ever verse-by-verse metaphysical interpretation of the four Gospels.
In 2005, the Holtons made the decision to follow their hearts, and entered into a spiritual training program that led them to become ordained Unity ministers. After eight years serving in the pulpit ministry, they are now committed to a more global ministry through The Global Center for Spiritual Awakening. Their spiritual mission is to lead, guide, and inspire people all over the world to awaken to their Divine Nature so they can live faithfully, lovingly, and wisely at the speed of their Enlightenment.

More About Rev. Dr. Cher
Rev. Dr. Cher Holton claims her name is an acronym for her personal mission: Creating Hope, Enthusiasm, and Results … and she brings her zest for living and her practical applications of Truth principles to everything she does. Her background includes being a “Preacher’s Kid,” a Certified Speaking Professional, and a Certified Management Consultant, which make her a much-sought-after facilitator, speaker, and coach. When she isn’t involved in spiritual work and study, Cher enjoys a good mystery novel, crossword & logic puzzles, the theatre, travel, and design work.
Behind the Scenes with Bil & Cher
On a personal note, the Holtons like to push the envelope and maintain their zest for life by taking what they call “Indiana Jones Adventures,” such as white-water rafting, sky diving, and fire walking. American-style ballroom dancing is also in their DNA. Although they have retired their competitive dance shoes, Bil and Cher love to perform ballroom showcases and exhibitions. Their two sons, beautiful daughters-in-law, and six incredible grandchildren all live nearby. Their visits are always joyful.
Spirituality and practice are the two places where all the world’s religions and spiritual paths come together. While respecting the differences among traditions, we celebrate what they share in common. We affirm interconnectedness and oneness as the true nature of reality. We acknowledge the active presence of Spirit in all aspects of everyday life.
We believe in the power and potential of an Internet Cyber Home to create, support, and sustain individual and group spiritual awakening.
We believe in open-mindedness and curiosity, and are committed to challenging all unquestioned answers.
We focus upon personal and cultural resources that are expressive of the quest for meaning and purpose, wholeness and healing, commitment and community, contemplation and enrichment.
We envision a global circle of Self-Realized people vitally engaged with the wisdom and practices of the spiritual traditions, who are thereby equipped to live deeper and fuller lives and to serve their communities and the wider world.
Simply put, our Mission is to help people master the art of living, as they walk the spiritual path on practical feet.
More specifically, The Global Center for Spiritual Awakening serves people who are more spiritual than religious, by providing a Spiritual Cyber Home where our goals are:
- to sustain and expand a content-rich website that creates, compiles, and curates a multi-faith and MetaSpiritual wisdom archive;
- to demonstrate spiritual literacy, the ability to recognize the spiritual dimensions of life written in the texts of our experiences;
- to provide authenticated and thoroughly researched and sourced resources for spiritual journeys;
- to offer a positive and spiritually progressive perspective on contemporary media, particularly books and films;
- to encourage everyday spiritual practice as an integral part of individual and community life;
- to promote the use of spiritual practices to enhance the quality of life for individuals during times of challenge and transition;
- to facilitate new types of spiritual communities and conversations using the technology and worldwide reach of the Internet;
- to develop new lifelong learning opportunities around spiritual practices, character qualities, and civic virtues, including e-courses, online retreats, and practice circles;
- to partner with and support spiritual teachers and organizations to reach learners outside the current models of local congregations, weekend workshops, conferences, and university programs.
- to foster multi-faith understanding in our increasingly pluralistic world.
Please support our mission. Be part of our global circle of people vitally engaged with the wisdom and practices of the spiritual traditions, living deeper and fuller lives, and serving our communities and the wider world.
