Workshop with Sarina Baptista

Accessing Higher Consciousness Using Sacred Geometry ($40)

Thursday, August 29, 4:15-6:15 PM

The term Sacred Geometry refers to proportions, shapes and patterns that reoccur in nature. It is in every part of the Universe and symbolizes Creation. Ancient cultures used the shapes and patterns, understanding the energy within and around them. Using these shapes and symbols gives us access to creation and the highest vibrations in the Universe. In this workshop, you will learn about six of these powerful shapes, experience their energy, and use them to access the higher realms through meditation and visualization. Accessing these realms can give us answers to many of life’s questions, taking us to higher levels of consciousness where we experience Universal Love. It is a great tool for clarity and understanding why we are here and what we need to do to change our lives for the better.

Workshop with Ellyn Dye, B.A.

Creating Heaven on Earth: The Great Shift of the Ages (aka What is Going On Out There???) and What’s Love Got to Do With It? ($40)

Thursday, August 29, 4:15-6:15 PM

We live in pivotal times, as humanity moves through the Great Shift of the Ages, from the Piscean Age to the Aquarian Age, the first time humanity has collectively decided to make this Shift while incarnated (as opposed to undergoing a giant cataclysm, dying en masse, and coming back in the new Age at a higher vibration). What is the Great Shift of the Ages? What does astrology tell us about the Shift and how the planets are supporting us? And, most of all, what can each of us do to help usher in the Golden Age in our own lives and in the world? Many NDE visions of the future provide a glimpse of a Golden Age, but how can we get there from the seeming chaos, fear, and hatred we see in the outer world? How do NDEs–with their emphasis on Love–point the way toward successfully bringing this about?

Workshop with Kelvin Chin, J.D.

“A Deeper Dive Into How Meditation Along with Knowledge about the Afterlife Can Eliminate the Fear of Death” ($40)

Friday, August 30, 4:00-6:00 PM

Kelvin will discuss how “Turning Within” sets the stage for opening ourselves to greater “self-knowing” and how combining that with greater understanding of the Structure of Life on this side and the other side can create a fear-free life. He will discuss NDE’s, STE’s and the Structure of the Afterlife based on personal experiences included in his book, Overcoming the Fear of Death: Through Each of the 4 Main Belief Systems — non-religious explanations minimizing fears about heaven, reincarnation and the science-based “No Afterlife” belief. You will leave the workshop with a deeper understanding of the Afterlife, and will learn tips on how to more easily and effectively discuss death and dying with others who don’t share your beliefs — whether they be family members, work colleagues or patients. You will also learn a relaxation technique that has immediate effects. The workshop will be practical and transformational.

Workshop with Lindsey Morgan Scott, B.A.

“The Gift of Medical Intuition” ($40)

Friday, August 30, 4:00-6:00 PM

Medical intuition has a long history, with figures such as Edgar Cayce using it to help others. Near-death experiencers can develop this skill spontaneously or are natural students for the subject. Medical intuitive readings include examining a client’s history, scanning the energy field and body of the client, identifying current disease and potential future ones and the possibility of recommending treatment, particularly holistic. Medical intuition also reveals emotional and energetic blocks and conflicts. It is especially helpful in cases in which western medicine cannot diagnose the cause of an illness. Medical intuition can be used as a tool in preventative medicine, to address chronic illness and to maintain robust health. This technique demonstrates the relationship between emotional blocks and illness.

Workshop with Peter Panagore, M.Div.

Kriya Yoga Workshop Leader: Learn to Radiate ($40)

Sunday, September 1, 1:45-3:45 PM

Following my first NDE in 1980, I discovered Kriya, Kundalini and Hatha Yogas. I found how to find my ‘chi’ or my ‘prana’ in my second chakra and move it in to my palm. I decided to pursue Kriya Yoga practice and found that if I could find one chakra I could find all eight of them, while finding the mulas in my hands, feet, and my subtle body making even more room for the light within. I am now able to radiate the energy of illumination. After decades of practice I am finally ready to teach this practice. My goal is to show others the light in ways that they can feel it, then they may choose to pursue the Light with all of their heart mind and soul. I practiced alone for thirty-five years and now train others some of whom state that I radiate when I practice. This workshop is for experienced yoginis and yogis who want to supercharge their spiritual practice. This yoga yokes one to the Divine within. Wear your yoga clothes. We will practice on a carpeted floor so we will not need yoga mats.
