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 unit.
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, which launched in 2011. He has No-thing to offer you, which turns out to be a pretty big deal.

Fred is the author of six books, which are all available in paperback, Kindle, and audio editions; you’ll find links to them HERE. His 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 so-called “seeker-become-finder.”

Fred has been teaching since 2010 and has worked with people from all the major traditions: Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jews, Muslims; loads of Transcendentalists and Zen practitioners, as well as hundreds of people with no allegiance to any religion, sect, or belief system at all. Well over a thousand people on six continents have found the door to freedom using this Living Method, which has roots in both Eastern spirituality and Western philosophy. His presentation, however, is completely original.

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 Columbia, South Carolina.


“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
