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

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 Eben Alexander & Karen Newell

"Re-Uniting with Primordial Mind" ($70)

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

We are each an integral part of the creative force ­underlying the structure of the ­universe. It is our birthright as humans to develop awareness of that connection.

Through your ever-present inner observer, ­merge with this ­collective force that joins us ­together, where one is all and all is one.

Workshop with Kelvin Chin

“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 continue his discussion about “Turning Within” Meditation and how it experientially sets the stage for opening up ourselves to greater “self-knowing” and “virtue” in the ancient Greek sense. He will show how that dovetails with greater understanding of the structure of life on this side and the other side in a way that can create a fear-free living experience. Kelvin will discuss NDE’s and the Structure of the Afterlife based on his personal experiences that he includes in his book, “Overcoming the Fear of Death: Through Each of the 4 Main Belief Systems” — a nonreligious approach to freeing up our minds to enjoy life in the present. The 4 Beliefs underlie all religious and cultural beliefs.
Kelvin has found that combining both the Experiential component of “turning within” along with the Understanding of the Afterlife in these workshops gives participants a more complete and visceral educational experience personally.
This will be a practical workshop accompanied by deep experientially-based knowledge. It will be transformational and skillset expanding. You will learn tips on how to more easily and effectively discuss death and dying with others who may not share the same beliefs as you — whether they be family members or workplace colleagues or patients.

Workshop with Lindsey Morgan Scott

"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.
Lindsey Morgan Scott has worked in medicine and spirituality. She has twenty five years of experience as an Intuitive, a Spiritual Counselor, a Reverend and a Medical Intuitive. She is author of the forthcoming book, presently titled ‘Soul to Keep’, which details her experience of extensive contact with her adult, deceased sister at the age of eight & her own NDE at the age of nine.

Workshop with Bill McDonald BA

"Miracles in the Foxhole: How STEs, NDEs, ND-Like Experiences, Moral and Spiritual Injuries Effect the Lives of Combat Veterans and their Families" - FREE

Saturday August 31, 4:00-6:00 PM

How to handle it all by finding understanding and acceptance of what happened. Veterans, Military families and friends of veterans are most welcome to attend. Interactive group setting where facilitators will guide and direct participants in their own healing process. Everyone who wishes to share their experience will be allowed some time to do so in breakout groups. Those attending will be not be just passive listeners, as they will also be there to support their brothers/sisters in arms to deal with making sense of what has happened to each of them. We will discuss how and even, if you reported anything to your unit leadership, or ever shared with fellow veterans. What was the reaction – and did it make it worse for you? Did anyone actually understand you, or what happen? Did their reactions exasperate your anxiety and emotional state? Did you have a moral injury? We will deal with these issues and more.
We will provide some limited resources and reference materials for your need to follow-up on issues like PTSD and Moral/Spiritual Injuries. We will be tackling these issues as related to how STEs and NDEs may have not been understood by the military, or the VA. It is the goal and intention of this workshop to help veterans begin to come to grips with what they experienced. Understanding is just the beginning of the healing process and there will need to be personal follow-up for most people attending this workshop. This is just a beginning step forward on the journey of better spiritual, mental and moral health.

Workshop with Peter Panagore

Beginners Kundalini Yoga Workshop—Open Your Inner Door ($40)

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

In the autumn following my first NDE while ice climbing in 1980, as I continued my study of pantomime at UMASS, I became a student of a student of a student of the yogi and mime, Marcel Marceau, who practiced and taught Hatha Yoga. In the first weeks of class as we warmed up with yoga our teacher told us how to use our breath, body, and mind to find prana in our second chakra and send it through our out stretched arm and into our palm, and to my surprise I felt the heat of prana in as a ball in my chakra and moved it to my fiery palm. After forty years of practice, I am finally ready to teach what I have learned of how to breath, body, and mind, in use yoga to find, and then connect our chakras, and mulas, in order to reduce the false self, to make room for the radiant Divine, illuminate the self with the Self, and fire prana into radiance, or as Christians call it, glory. I swore to myself that I would not teach until people began to tell me that I radiate the Light. Radiating the Light was always my goal. The less of me then the more Light comes through. The more Light comes through, the more the Message of Love touches and changes lives. Inner yoga yokes oneself to the Divine within. This is a no mats beginners’ class. Experienced yogis and yoginis welcome. This practice is more about what happens inside than how well you bend.

1. Open your inner door.
2. Learn to radiate that others may see/feel the light more fully in you so that you may give the light away that others may seek the light itself give it away so others can learn to see/feel it too.
3. Students will learn the fundamentals and depth of the practice.
4. The students will leave knowing that with practice they too will find, and feel, their chakras, learn basics unleash their kundalini, find their subtle/energetic body, learn to raise their prana/inner fire, and grasp the power of Self-realization yoga.
