WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS:

photo of Neal HarrisWhat Is Reiki & Upcoming Trainings
Reiki is an energy-balancing technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing on all levels (mental, emotional, physical and spiritual). It's administered by placing the hands on or around another person, animal, plant or oneself. It's based on the idea that we can easily learn to harness, enhance and direct life force energy (which is always around and flowing through us) for the highest benefit of others and ourself.  If your life force energy is low, then you're more likely to get sick or feel stress.  If it's high, you're more capable of being happy and healthy.  Reiki promotes this higher level of life force energy, which greatly improves the chances for healing to occur on any and all levels.

In times of stress and sickness, we often emit spontaneous sounds that help to soothe and heal us. The crying of sadness, the laughter of joy and the moaning of sickness are three examples. The therapeutic effect of these primordial sounds has become buried in modern times with our excessive use of producing sounds through speech and singing. Practice of the Six Healing Sounds promotes optimal organ health, emotional balance, and helps prevent illness.

Chinese Health Balls is an exercise system that's been in use for over 2,000 years. They can improve strength, flexibility, dexterity and circulation in the fingers, hands and wrists. In addition, they can relieve joint stiffness and soreness while relaxing muscles and joints, reducing the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, repetitive strain injury, rheumatism and arthritis. They are deeply relaxing, can help reduce stress, improve overall health, stimulate the mind and reduce your risk of cognitive decline, dementia and Alzheimer’s. Each participant will receive a free set of Health Balls.

Both of these practices, led by John Robertson, are easy to learn and perform and have a wide range of applications for both health professionals and the general public.

This workshop, led by Gary Boelhower and Gary Anderson, will focus on accessing your inner wisdom to bring about the change you deeply desire in your life. The Mountain 10 Journey is a proven process for deep reflection on human change. It is based on the conviction that every person has the most important answers about direction, purpose and calling within them. This directed reflection process leads us through four terrains of exploration, stopping at waypoints to consider key questions about awareness, letting go, vision and realization. The terrains of our journey will take us into deeper observation of our feelings, thoughts and images. We will explore what we need to let go of as we truly seek what we really want. We will open a space for new vision and consider the practical steps to actualize that vision. We will share and deepen our insights in small circles of trust. We will identify key steps to integrate our Mountain 10 journey into our everyday reality. Throughout the process, gentle movement and journaling will be used to connect with body, mind and spirit wisdom. Includes the presenter's book, Mountain 10.

EFT is a remarkable self-healing technique that uses your body’s natural stress reduction points to produce rapid change.  Stimulation of these points by touching or tapping has been scientifically demonstrated to quickly reduce anxiety, depression, and phobias often leading to the reduction of physical symptoms like headaches, muscle stiffness etc.  EFT also has the potential to improve your mood, boost your vitality, and dramatically improve your performance at work, school, sports, losing weight, stopping smoking or other habits, and managing anger.   EFT has been written about in national magazines, the Wall Street Journal, and on national TV.

With this fun, exciting and highly meaningful workshop, Dr. Tim Hayes will teach you a variety of simple and advanced techniques to release unwanted emotions (fear, anger, anxiety, frustration, sadness etc.), addictive cravings, as well as trouble losing weight and/or keeping it off, physical tension/pain, relationship problems and more.  Learn to release these stresses in minutes or hours.

You will walk away from this class with information about the science behind EFT, how it works (a basic, simple recipe), how to apply it to your specific situations, and how to help your family members, friends, co-workers and clients apply it to their lives.

Unhealthy and toxic energies can easily be transferred during a therapy session from client to practitioner and vice-versa. Many massage therapists, social workers, counselors, occupational therapists and others report feeling drained or fatigued after working with certain clients. Some professionals experience the same effect while simply being in the presence of co-workers, friends and family; noting that other's thoughts, emotions and words can also have a profound impact on their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Why do we find it exhausting to be around stressed people?

Why do we find it exhausting to be around negative people?

Why do we find it exhausting just to be around certain people?

In this class you will discover why and how energy can negatively affect both you and your clients, as well as practice a number of different energy protection techniques and strategies to help stop you from picking up unhealthy energy from your clients or transferring unhealthy energy to them.

"Shamanism is a path of knowledge, not of faith, and that knowledge cannot come from me or anyone else in this reality. To acquire that knowledge, including the knowledge of the reality of the spirits, it is necessary to step through the shaman's doorway and acquire empirical evidence." Michael Harner, Ph.D., FSS Founder and President

During the Basic experiential workshop, Tim Cope introduces you to core shamanism, the universal and near-universal basic methods of the shaman to enter nonordinary reality for problem solving and healing. Particular emphasis is on the classic shamanic journey, one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myth and dream. You are initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by drumming and other techniques for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness and for awakening dormant spiritual abilities, including connections with Nature.

Practice includes comparisons by participants of their discoveries in shamanic journeys as well as being introduced to shamanic divination and healing. You are also provided with methods for journeying to meet and study with your own individual spirit helpers in nonordinary reality, a classic step in shamanic practice. You will learn how the journey is utilized to restore spiritual power and health, and how shamanism can be applied in contemporary daily life to help heal oneself, others, and the Planet. 

Please bring a rattle and a drum if you have them. Wear comfortable clothing, comfortable socks, and bring a bandanna, a blanket, a rough-surfaced rock approximately the size of a grapefruit, and a pen and notebook to record your journeys.

From ancient times, shamans have worked with the spirits of nature for healing, survival, and knowledge. By learning from the plants and animals, from the rocks and mountains, from the winds and waters, and from the sun, moon, and stars, shamans helped their peoples live in harmony with the universe. In a world now out of balance, the mind of the shaman can once again teach us all how to respect nature, our Planet, and its inhabitants at a deep spiritual level. As our ancestors everywhere once knew, our survival depends on the survival of the other species. By working together intensively through shamanic journeys and other spiritual experiences, you will learn to work in both nonordinary and ordinary reality to restore and maintain a living Planet. Depending on the weather, we will be outdoors for parts of this training which is led by Tim Cope.

You will be introduced to the essentials on how to get in touch with animals telepathically. Discover your blocks to communicating with animals and the levels of communication possible. Learn how to experience animals' perspectives, how you may have already communicated telepathically with animals, and how to expand on that.

Carol SchultzAdvanced Animal Communication Training

TBD

This course, led by Carol Schultz, is for those who have practiced telepathic communication with animals after the “Communicating with Animals” course, and want more knowledge, direction, and inspiration to broaden and deepen their experience.

Continue along the ever fascinating path of communicating with animals, and open yourself to receive the vast information that is held in the complete messages from the animals. In this advanced course, learn to synchronize more completely with animal teachers, so that you may understand the depth and full meaning of their communications with you. Learn techniques to further assist in understanding animal experiences physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually — connecting with them as complete beings.

Journey through exercises to let go of blocks to your communications with animals, and move past old patterns that may be hindering your complete connection. Practices will include extended time with the animals and nature, refining your ability to receive telepathic communication clearly and accurately, and to be deeply present.

Learn, directly from the animals, how to understand your presence as a unique human within the realms of Nature, while learning about life's greatest lessons from these masterful beings who share our world. Enrich yourself with new patterns, ideas, and tools to assist you in the exploration and advancement of your human-animal-nature-earth connection.


Please bring photographs of your animal companions for this workshop, both living and passed. Also, you'll be asked to bring your own lunch so you can remain on site during the mid-day break.

Feeling closer to a divine source and receiving clearer messages calling you to sacred service are a few of the spiritual benefits.

Quantum-Touch is easy to do, yet powerful enough to astound physicians, chiropractors, social workers, psychotherapists, massage therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and a host of other health professionals.
