The Power of Your Perceptions

7:30pm • Free, but call to reserve a seat
Our perceptions control us, for better or worse. They have been forged in the fire of our life experiences and they can seem indomitable as they detract from our inner peace and fulfillment. They do, however, have an Achilles heel, and that is the feeling we create during a meditative practice. This talk not only covers how to use your meditative practice to change your perceptions, but will demonstrate this power with an example from your own life and a guided meditation. Paul Miller is the author of The Power of Your Perceptions. www.ThePowerOfYourPerceptions.com

Shamanic Journey

7:30pm • Free, but call to reserve a seat
The shamanic world is a mystical realm where the nature spirits (rocks, trees, elements) and guardian spirits (power animals, spirit guides, ancestors) are alive and communicate with us for healing, self-discovery, support and guidance. One of the gateways to the shamanic world is through the practice of journeying. This can be done by listening to rhythmic drumming which takes you into an altered state of consciousness. Patricia White Buffalo will introduce this ancient technique and give you an experience of the healing powers of journeying. Her latest CD is Call to Awaken Shamanic Sound Healing Journeys. www.BeHeavenOnEarth.com See workshop, Aug 7

Finding Calmness in a Chaotic World

7:30pm • Free, but call to reserve a seat
When we find ourselves blindsided by life, we may wonder whether we brought it on ourselves, whether our name has been plucked out of the phone book, or even whether we were born under a bad astrological sign. No matter what the cause, we can find a way to come back to our place of calmness within, to what Paramhansa Yogananda called our “portable paradise.” This is not a way of avoiding our responsibilities. It is, in fact, the most beneficial response we can learn, to enable us to discover solutions within and find joy in riding the inevitable waves of life. Presented by Steven Manus, a long time student of Yogananda’s teachings.

Your Enneagram Personality Type: Waking Up to Your Higher Potential

7:30pm • Free, but call to reserve a seat
According to the ancient dictum to “Know Thyself,” self-awareness and self-understanding are the keys to personal growth. The Enneagram map of personality is one of the most effective tools available for developing greater self-knowledge and emotional intelligence because its personality type descriptions provide such an accurate and powerful guide for self-observation. Based on ancient wisdom traditions, it provides an amazingly clear picture of how the specific defensive patterns of the personality types help us to survive, but, if unexamined, also prevent us from growing to our full potential. Beatrice Chestnut, author of The Complete Enneagram, will provide a thorough introduction to this remarkable method of self-discovery.

Removing Vaastu Defects through
Vibrational Meditation

Vaastu, a supportive science of Ayurveda and Yoga, is the precursor to Feng-Shui and has a wide effect on human health.

The vibrations created during the course of this meditation, using “determination power,” help eliminate the ill-effects arising out of Vaastu defects.
