About Fred

This is from our wedding day, July 14, 2007. Conscious Awakeness had been functioning through the Fred unit for 11 months. Betsy, who had always exhibited a high level of inherent wakefulness, would find freedom three years after this photo was taken.


~Biographical Sketch

Fred Davis is a sage, not a saint.
If you’re looking for a saint, keep on looking.
If you’re looking for freedom, you’re in the right place.
There is no object for veneration here, only a communications tool.
The messenger here is human, and therefore deeply flawed.
This Liberation message flows through him anyway.

FRED DAVIS is a spiritual unteacher. He studied and practiced Eastern wisdom for twenty-five years prior to 2006, when seeking ended, and his true awakening commenced. He is the creator and editor of Awakening Clarity He has Nothing to offer you, which turns out to be a pretty big deal.

Fred is also the author of five books, including the nondual bestsellers Awaken Now: The Living Method of Spiritual Awakening, The Book of Undoing: Direct Pointing to Nondual Awareness, and Beyond Recovery: Nonduality and the Twelve Steps.

Fred’s The Living Method of Spiritual Awakening is a very successful, field-proven process of nondual inquiry, investigation, and direct pointing that encourages immediate recognition and acceptance of our shared true nature, Oneness/Awakeness. Following recognition, The Living Method then helps to orient and clear the seeker-become-finder.

Fred has been teaching since 2010, and has worked with people from all the major traditions: Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jews, Muslims, Transcendental Meditators, and Zen practitioners, as well as hundreds of people with no allegiance to any religion or sect at all. Well over a thousand people on six continents have found the door to freedom using The Living Method, which has roots in both Eastern spirituality and Western philosophy.

Fred is very happily married, is deeply devoted to this teaching, his beautiful wife, and his extraordinary canine companions, Willy and Jack. He lives quietly as a chiefly ignored, urban hermit in the very heart of progressive America, which as everyone knows, is Columbia, South Carolina.


Dr. Jenny Wade

“Forget serious teachers and even crazy wisdom teachers!
Fred Davis is enlightenment’s court jester, reformed rake, televangelist,
and grits-talking magus all in one. He’s the real deal–and I should know,
after a career researching consciousness, seeking,
and having my own satori and nondual experiences.
After years of headbanging to recapture the awakening I’d lost through
a severe drug reaction, 
stumbled across him–and I awakened.”

“Fred Davis is imbued with the knowledge of nonduality. He can take you home.” ~James Braha


“[Sages at this level of awakening] excel at one-to-one coaching. Fred Davis, for example, is a master at it. He is exceptionally skilled at initiating people into non-duality. That is his specialty.” ~Ramaji

Columbia, SC
I noticed a pattern long ago, back when Betsy and I were first dating.
I went to her home. I visited her office. I saw what she was doing with my little apartment.
Wherever Betsy goes, Beauty follows.
In fact, I can find no separation.

Dear Fred and Betsy,
Just looking at the photos of your beautiful new home, it looks so cosy and also
seeing the satsang room made me cry tears of Joy.
Radiating in heavenly light!
Clarity House looks absolutely stunning
inside and outside and it feels like a
sanctuary of peace & harmony.
Infinite blessings and love,







I listen to Rupert Spira to get the knowledge.
I listen to Eckhart Tolle to enjoy his awake presence. 
I listen to Fred Davis to wake up (especially when he shouts in my ears).


My general views are offered free on my YouTube channel, and in these posts.
I do not teach via email, nor do I assess other people’s websites, writings, videos, or clarity.
