This workshop is a combination of interactive talks and exercises exploring the power of human connection and sexual energy. In order for us to live a fulfilling life, it is of most importance for us to have a healthy way of relating to this powerful energy, also known as our Life Force Energy.
In a world where repression and suppression have become the norm, this has been a challenge for many. Although, energetic lovemaking may be the most powerful tool for bringing the body back into balance for ultimate physical, emotional and mental health, there are other modalities that offer similar energetic exchanges. In this workshop, we will be focusing on the human embrace a hug , for nourishing and re-balancing the nervous system, allowing us to come back to our essential nature of love, compassion and harmony.
How does this work? By being conscious of our bodies and our breath, we create a certain level of "aliveness" within our energy system, making it easier to "consciously" connect to others' energetic fields. When two fields come together in an embrace, they begin to interact with one another, growing and generating more energy. The movement of energy between these two fields starts to detoxify the physical, mental and emotional body, allowing for individuals to let go of chronic tension, negative thought patterns and unprocessed feelings sadness, anger, unworthiness, etc.
The energetic connection produces oxytocin the "love" hormone , reducing stress and social anxiety, while rebuilding confidence, self-assurance and self-love. This embrace, especially when held for an extended period of time, increases one's heart coherence, creating a stronger connection to intuition through the heart intelligence. It reinforces feelings of gratitude, compassion, love and appreciation, bringing more peace and joy to one's life and the world.
Dying well is not a matter of enlightened self-interest or personal preference. Dying well must become an obligation that living people and dying people owe to each other and to those to come. Die Wise teaches the skills of dying, skills that have to be learned in the course of living deeply and well. Not a seven step coping strategy, not an out-clause for trauma or sorrow, Die Wise is for everyone who is not going to pull off eternity after all. Die Wise does not offer seven steps for coping with death.
It does not suggest ways to make dying easier. It pours no honey to make the medicine go down. Instead, with lyrical prose, deep wisdom, and stories from his two decades of working with dying people and their families, Stephen Jenkinson places death at the centre of the page and asks us to behold it in all its painful beauty.
Dying well is a right and responsibility of everyone. It is a moral, political, and spiritual obligation each person owes their ancestors and their heirs. It is not a lifestyle option. It is a birthright and a debt. How we die, how we care for dying people, and how we carry our dead: this work makes our village life, or breaks it.
Hayes Ballroom. Monterey Room. San Juan Bautista. Silver Creek Dining Room. Water, and the fact that the body composition is mostly of water, is considered of great importance. All fluids of the body - the circulating blood, the tides of cerebrospinal fluid, the pump of the lymph system, the net of membranes or the swirl of viscera and brain - function as ONE stream of intelligence.
Continuum's movements are designed to enhance the undulating spirals and circularity of this fluid system. A full range of non-patterned movement, from dynamic full-bodied expression to subtle micro-movements, stimulates neurological growth and vibrancy. Through breath, sound, movement, sensation, and pleasure, experience the interconnection of your origins with the larger currents of all organisms, beginning with the first cell and ultimately layered into the intricacies of human life.
Central goals of Continuum are the creation of health and wellness and how to free oneself from cultural and mechanistic constraints of modern society. Continuum maintains movement is the message and the way. Guadalupe Charles Eisenstein Emissaries from the Future. Is it possible to enter into two-way communication with people in the distant future? In this highly experiential workshop, we explore this possibility through a technique that straddles the blurry boundary between improvisational role-playing and telepathic channeling.
Each participant will get a chance to ask questions of a being from the future, as well as to actually connect such a being and channel the answers. Charles will use a powerful guided meditation to forge a link with people years from now. You need not actually believe in this premise for this "technology" of communicating across time to work. It is equally effective if you don't believe in any of that channeling crap, and instead see the process as a role-playing game. However you interpret it, the experience of speaking from the future is uncanny, and a tremendous sense of clarity opens up, a kind of direct, authentic knowledge that despite the gravity of the present crisis, a more beautiful world is indeed possible.
Of the many possible futures, this process connects us with the most beautiful one that you can realistically imagine, by invoking experiences that showed us directly what is possible for life and earth. As framing, Charles discusses the superposition of timelines, multiple pasts and futures, and the social dynamics and psychodynamics of transition, laying out a metaphysical basis for the time-bridging technology we will employ. In this workshop, Isa Gucciardi, creator of Depth Hypnosis, a spiritual counseling model that combines shamanic and Buddhist principles of healing, and renowned scholar and thought leader, Robert Thurman, will review the historic encounters between the two traditions in the Himalayan region.
We will learn how the two traditions have informed one another from time immemorial, examining the ways in which they have engaged and defined spiritual inquiry and how they have translated that inquiry into the social contexts in which they have arisen. We will also contrast and compare the two traditions, identifying the ways in which their practices are similar and demonstrating where their paths diverge.
We will explore the role of ritual and ceremony in both contexts and learn what role ritual and ceremony provide in bringing forward the insights of deep inner exploration. We will also look at the role of spiritual initiation in the two contexts and show how this process highlights the path toward development of skill sets for both shamans and siddhas. We will also spend time discussing the relevance of both traditions in the modern context — and demonstrate how the wisdom of these two traditions can support current spiritual inquiry.
The class is highly experiential in nature. We will explore the various methods of going inward drawn from both traditions including the shamanic journey and Tibetan Deity Meditation. The material in this workshop is based on the 4-day retreats Drs. Representing many spiritual traditions, participants in this workshop have likely experienced the non-dual realm as a result of their varied practice.
Being spiritually awake during the day is a challenge for us all, regardless of our attainment. Why is this so difficult? From the very beginning of life, before imprinting occurs, our infant brain resembled a field of virgin snow that is purely receptive. Early imprinting creates first tracks in the snow which become the underpinnings of adult identity. All higher brain functions are informed by these early tracks rooted in instinctual needs.
This is the framework upon which our complex personality structure is built. As we mature, we function in the external world through familiar neurological tracks that background our original receptivity. Our receptive state of mind is underused as we continue to build a structure of cognitive, emotional and sensory neuropathways. Eventually our conditioned type structure obscures receptivity to reality as it actually is. The Enneagram provides an elegant map that names nine type structures congruent with current neuroscience and psychological understanding.
During the past few centuries, the map has guided contemplatives to discover their inner obstacle sin to a praying state of mind. In this workshop we will demonstrate a method for joining contemplative practice with habitual type resistance to change. Witnessing our patterns as they unfold instead of reacting automatically allows a more conscious response to emerge. This workshop includes teaching, inner practice and live panel interviews with experienced self-observers who can describe their movement to a receptive state of mind.
We know that the mind influences the body, but what seems to be ignored in the life sciences is what influences the mind. I will explain why culture is what influences the mind. Rather than being genetically sentenced with family illnesses, we have the capacity to change how our genes express disease as well as the causes of health, based on how our brain learns to culturally perceive the world. My theory and practice of mind-body science is based on research that investigates the healthy brains, the exalted emotions compassion, empathy, love , and the elevated cognitions honor, admiration, cooperation.
As Homo sapiens, our immune system has , years of accumulated wisdom that has allowed it to evolve from a protector against pathogens to an intelligent interpreter that confirms the cultural beliefs that we choose to engage. Philosopher Tim Freke invites you experience for yourself the deep awake state.
This is a profound shift in consciousness, which is completely natural and available to all of us. It is characterized by the profound recognition of the oneness of being that underlies the separateness of appearances. This is accompanied by an expansive feeling of universal love and an unshakeable confidence that, despite all the horrors, life is essentially good. With his trademark lucidity and humour, Tim will share his revolutionary new approach to awakening, which urges us to both wake up to oneness and celebrate our individuality.
These are meditations we practise with a partner that quickly bring us into a deep state of oneness in a safe and simple way. Unresolved trauma casts a powerful spell that disrupts our life and our relationships. We have an innate capacity to heal trauma within our body and psyche. The workshop employs dialogue and experiential tools for you to understand and heal your trauma, resulting in more vibrant life and relationships. We will work to resolve symptoms such as anxiety, insomnia, depression, feelings of disconnection, lethargy and loneliness.
When trauma is healed, you will feel more alive and joyous, more connected to yourself, others and the world around you. A natural outcome, for those who like to venture deeper, is the transformation of trauma into embodied wisdom and higher levels of spiritual knowing. Participant will learn how to Define the characteristics of trauma, while developing a deeper understand of its dual nature, especially the aspect of renewal. How to work directly with the brain, the nervous system, and the body to self-regulate emotional states to enhance your capacity for presence. Develop the body as a container to hold higher states of consciousness.
Cravings for addictive substances and activities are merely the symptomology, the outward surface layer concealing underlying issues that truly drive the momentum of addiction. Shame and trauma are common underlying drivers. Shame is more than a conscious story we tell ourselves about being ashamed of who we are. Shame is a programmed conditioning deeply hidden and embedded into the fabric of our consciousness, our reality and therefore our behavior.
Trauma is often linked to shame. Trauma is highly subjective — what is traumatic for one person is benign to another. As long as trauma remains unresolved, addiction and other behaviors continue to manifest as a way of coping with the emotional overwhelm associated with post-traumatic responses. In this workshop, Scott Kiloby will provide insights and experiential tools from the Kiloby Center for Recovery regarding awakening out of shame and trauma. As we resolve and dissolve this programming through skillful somatic means within a non-dual foundation, we begin to live more transparent lives, free from the shackles of shame and trauma and the addictions that often accompany them.
Conference Registration Opens. Silver Creek Dining Room Dinner. Hayes Ballroom Opening. John Chrysostom famously characterized it. My talk will explore this profound Christian intuition that contemplation is indeed a way of knowing—in fact, arguably the closest equivalent to what we now call Nondual perception. Whether we conceive the cosmos as emerging from consciousness or consciousness emerging from the cosmos, one of the greatest miracles to arise within human experience is the dawning of self consciousness.
For all of its tremendous benefits the dawning of self consciousness, which develops very early in childhood, also brings with it a degree of separation and alienation from the world, others, and even our true being. Our yearning for intimacy, God, awakening, enlightenment, and even truth is driven by the incredible potential and painful pitfalls of self consciousness.
The paradox of the quest for self realization, is that in order to realize the Self we must transcend the very self consciousness that gives rise to the yearning for self realization without regressing to the pre-self conscious condition of infancy. The kaon, or riddle of enlightenment is how do we transcend self, while retaining and even enhancing, our individual autonomy?
Without transcending self we remain trapped within an illusion of separation. However, to reject personal autonomy is to regress to a merged, conditioned, and essentially powerless condition. What is called for is what I call spiritual autonomy. A total embrace of radical unity, as well as individual spiritual autonomy. Peia has gathered songs from living and ancient traditions that span across the globe. She carries melodies wrinkled and wise with time, laboring faithfully to revive their language, stories and original essence. Accompanying herself with charangon, harmonium and guitar, her eclectic ensemble offers enchanting renditions of timeless treasures.
Hayes Terrace. Lower Level Lobby. Morgan Hill. On the Patio. San Martin. The enlightened vision of the universe is that it is not really happening. It is ultimately, actually in reality, uncreated. It is deepest peace, luminous transparency, and non-proliferating deathless bliss. It only seems to be there as a vale of suffering due to our active mis-knowledge, our ignorance.
Our wisdom intuition first discovers it to be a "zeroverse," sheer emptiness, and then further finds out that that emptiness is empty of itself and so does not destroy the ignorance-created, relative universes of mis-knowing individuals. Today, materialist scientists have analyzed their way up to the anthropic constants, the strange facts of matter balance our lives on a mathematical tightrope, as a little more of this and a little less of that and we would not exist. For them it has to be an accident, since they are terrified of a theistic creator entity, and are rightly worried about being re-captured by some horrendous, fanatic Inquisition.
But recently, we can see such post materialist movements as biocentrism and spiritual psychology, which build on the quantum discovery of material uncertainty and ultimate non-objectivity, to open up to the mind as being participant in nature. In this plenary, we will praise scientific wisdom as experiential intuition, evaluate the post-materialist movements, and share the vision of the Shakyamuni Buddha's Buddhaverse we have been enjoying all these centuries, as it emerges in our experience of the infinite individual universes.
A 21st century scientific revolution is about to not only transform our understanding of our Universe at the minute Planck scale and the furthest reaches of space, but at each and every level between, and crucially, at the scale of our everyday lives. The latest evidence and insights across all fields and scales of scientific research are discovering that our Universe is finite, innately in-formed and holographically real-ized literally a cosmic hologram; existing and evolving as a coherent and unified thought in the mind of the infinite and eternal Cosmos.
Edenvale Cynthia Bourgeault C1. The Contemplative Way of Knowing. Join Michaela Boehm and Steve James in this experiential session for an exploration of the play of the masculine and feminine in erotic friction, emerging from a radical intimacy with life itself. We will explore the deep principles of embodiment, uncover and work with personal blocks to expansion and contraction, engage in practical exercises, dialogue, and learning to widen both heart space and the ability to embody as energy or thrust.
Learn about the principles of creating and deepening erotic passion and intimacy in a fun and practical way. When we learn how to enter contemplative states with another person, we open the door to the emergence of a powerful source of wisdom and engagement. In these shared inquiry processes, you discover how consciousness naturally expands when two or more people enter meditative space together. You find out what happens when you let yourself move beyond ordinary social discourse into awareness of your shared consciousness.
Mutual meditative awareness is both a cutting edge skill for individuals, and a key to creating non-dual states in a partnership or a group. In this practical workshop, Sally Kempton offers a series of heart-based non-dual processes for dialoguing with another person from a place of shared Awareness. Based on the insights of Kashmir Shaivism, these processes can literally transform your way of being with yourself and others. Reality of the Heart. From this, a universal path of divine love emerges that can be called nondual bhakti, or devotional nonduality. This session will include an introductory guided experiential meditation, and conclude with a period of questions and responses.
Monterey Room Mario Martinez C2. Embracing rather than hiding your weird qualities allows them to be a powerful force of support for your inner fulfillment and growth. Learn why people tend to reactively treat their weirdness as a dangerous liability. How to take action on finding the courage to say YES! On the Patio Emergent Connections. Join Ellen in an exploration of our essential experience, bringing a gentle focus on the body in the tradition of non-duality and Kashmir Shaivism.
This ancient approach is an invitation to simply welcome and experience our body as it truly is: a flow of sensation, energy and vibration arising out of and unfolding within the open field vibrating field of Awareness. In our daily lives, the body is seldom tasted as it is. We rarely listen to its language or allow it to simply unfold and blossom in its natural original intelligence. In fact we have deeply disconnected from this level of experience and even when we turn back towards the body, we come with agendas and ideas that we project upon it, forcing the body into a new mode, only to perpetuate a felt identification with a body, that may seem improved, but in fact remains a mere projections for the separate self that seems to live in its center.
Using guided meditation, simple postures, free movements, breathing, and visualizations we will reestablish our true identity as ever-present and unlocated Awareness and reacquaint ourselves with our body directly, as free of concepts or images as possible. In this contemplation, resistances and chains of bodily contractions, the habits that create the illusion that our identity is limited, located and separate are revealed for what they are: feelings and sensations that come and go in Awareness.
We come feel that our true identity is an open field of tactile openness,limitless, vibrating and and ever-present. Gently and effortlessly, the body is slowly realigned with this felt understanding. It flows as a living substance with more and more ease and transparency and reflects and expresses the ever-present freedom and silence that is its invisible source. Now, a human is part of that world, so the world model must also contain a self-model of the human. This presentation will show that we are self-models living in and experiencing our model of the world that we are not humans experiencing the world directly.
Dual process theory DPT in psychology gives evidence that the human agent can be divided into two systems that I rename as the Thinker and Doer agents. The Experiencer can be seen to either not contain a self-model at all, or that its self-model is equal to the world model. Thus, the Experiencer is the non-dual agent, and a human experiencing non-duality must be identified with the Experiencer.
Animals have essentially no Thinker at all since they lack the complete language world model that modern humans have. The development of the Thinker in humans caused living problems, and spirituality was invented to fix those problems. I will describe the living problems caused by the Thinker and the spiritual solution to those problems. Spacelessness cannot be felt with the finite body. Yet it may be that underlying our theories of relativity and quantum mechanics exists an informational realm that gives rise to both space and time and all of physics as we know it.
The information realm is a timeless and spaceless realm that is nevertheless fully consistent with physics and can be described using concrete mathematics. We can engage the creative faculties of the mind to imagine timelessness and spacelessness, although all efforts inevitably fall short since we are inertial beings immersed in space and time themselves. Light from other galaxies may take a million years to arrive on earth and be seen by your eye, yet the mathematics tells us that light registers no time between being emitted from the far away galaxy and collapsing at your eye.
Similarly, there is no spatial separation to cross. Boundlessness Mind. For a moment, if we leave behind our name, age, gender, nationality, history—everything we have learned about ourselves and the world—all our stories, beliefs, worries, expectations, plans and regrets, what remains? What cannot be left? What is the same in every different experience? We could say that consciousness is the common factor in every experience—the knowingness of being here now, the bare sense of presence. Consciousness is also the dividing up of unicity into apparent multiplicity, the dream-like creation of apparently substantial forms out of what is actually vast emptiness.
It seems to be the nature of consciousness to be fascinated and hypnotized by its own creations and identified with the characters it is dreaming up. Consciousness becomes easily entranced in the dramas and storylines of the personal self and the apparent outside world—the whole movie of waking life. Consciousness is the emerging and evolving universe of ever-greater complexity, the dance of emptiness. Awareness is simplicity itself, that which cannot be further reduced, the no-thing-ness at the core of our being, the emptiness of form, that which beholds the play of consciousness without being caught by it.
Awareness is the boundless wholeness of being—infinite intelligence, unconditional love. Awareness is nondual. It has no beginning, no end, no inside, no outside, no opposite. It is what remains when consciousness is finished. Of course, these are all words. These words simply point out different aspects of the seamless living reality that has no actual boundaries or limits.
How do we awaken to that which is beyond our thoughts and mental projections? For many of us, it's natural to start on the intellectual plane and to use the power of the scientific, rational mind to surmise the reality of those dimensions. But at some point we move beyond the mind and hear a call from the heart. Dogen talked about "the intimacy with the ten thousand things. What does one mean by a transformation at the level of the heart, at the level of the gut? Where is that place, in which there are no questions and answers?
Imagine that we undertake double slit experiment with water molecules. When the experiment is done in 'vacuum', the water molecules obviously produce two bands i. But when the same experiment is undertaken underwater, the water molecules would produce a wave pattern of impacts on the detector screen.
Its because of the water environment. Each water particle that gets fired initiates a wave in the water pool and which travels towards the first screen. While most of the wave gets reflected back by the screen, a portion of the wave passes through each slit and emerges on the other side as a daughter wave. Because there are two slits, there are going to be two such daughter waves or wavelets.
These two wavelets spread and interfere with each other and result in the interference pattern observed on the detector screen. So when we observe water molecules producing wave like interference in DSE, we must infer that the experiment was carried out in a space filled with water molecules i. Similarly when we observe photon particles producing wave like interference, we must infer that as proof that our space is filled with photons.
I propose that what we called as Ether is nothing but this cosmic ocean of photons. The above photon Ether model provides a very simple and logical explanation for the DSE and thus dispenses with the absurd propositions of the quantum physics and resurrects logic and commonsense into Science. I have explained how the same Ether model provides a physical explanation for the wave like interference pattern produced by electrons and all other particles. If you browse on-line, you'll see a lot of concepts about nonduality.
There are also teachers who have awoken and speak in terms of nonduality, yet describe the world as a separate illusion. If we explore the origins of Advaita in Vedanta, we discover that nonduality is not a concept. It is a lived reality that unfolds in stages. Oneness dawns when we recognize the world as the Self too.
It further matures when we go beyond the subtle dualities of consciousness and existence into Brahman. In this talk, we'll explore the stages of enlightenment and their relationship to unfolding nonduality. Everything in nature is made of two aspects: one visible and one invisible. Conversing with invisibles is an ability which awakens following a deprogramming of the conditioning created within us by a kind of collective hypnosis which separates the visible from the invisible creating duality. This deprogramming and awakening key is transmitted in the Mother Mantra tradition with the simplicity of primitive and natural teaching, through healing exercises and spiritual practices.
It has effect on all aspects of life: from dreams to diet, health, from work to relationships. In the presentation I will focus on the theme of eating, describing the rituals that heal our relationship with our food and with our body. The loss of non-dual vision produces suffering, because it leads to a relationship of conflict and fear with the invisible.
This is what I will explain clearly in my presentation. Natural Mind is immeasurable and already free, ie. This ordinary mind that we listen to everyday, that we follow or not, based on if it is practical and creative is the One Mind, one intelligence that animates and holds everything. So how did this one intelligence contract and make itself small and restless? Consider that it requires an immense strength to condense or contract formless vast intelligence into a small worried object. It's quite impressive! Under pressure, mind can experience limitation, an altered less clear point of view, and experience of separation and isolation, ie.
Ahh, how satisfying for a unified field to temporarily from its timeless view experience its opposite. This is why sages show ordinary mind its immensity, inviting it to look behind perceived limitation and not knowing into the heart of intelligence, the heart of the one mind. There, there is rest and wisdom's own relaxed potentiality. Joey Chang, aka CelloJoe, is an anomaly in the world of cellists. By combining cello with beatboxing, he has created a unique genre: Classical Hip Hop. CelloJoe records live on stage with a loop pedal and produces intricate tapestries of harmony, melody, and rhythm.
His beatboxing vocal percussion and funky cello grooves form a rich soundscape for intelligent lyrics and his music spreads love, joy, laughter and conscious vibrations. Those of us proclaiming to believe in non-duality, often have little evidence of such in the daily trafficking of our lives, especially in matters of interpersonal relationships. As human beings we have the extraordinary capacity to think, speak, feel, behave, and believe in ways that contradict one another.
This capacity for incongruence puts us at cross-purposes in ways that ultimately result in unrequited goals, dis-ease, and inharmonious relationships. Although we know, from a non-dualistic scientific and spiritual perspective, that everyone and everything is connected and interdependent sourced by the same energetic field, we balk at its implications when it undermines conflicting polarities in our minds. Even when we do not question our theoretical Oneness, we sometimes, consciously or unconsciously, choose to operate as though it is not so.
Our thoughts, feelings, and actions can reflect a more Newtonian model in which we perceive people, places, and things as immutable impenetrable masses of matter needing to controlled or destroyed as opposed to transformed or redeemed. This enables us to perceive ourselves as victims instead of co-creators of our reality. In the face of our judgments and sense of self-righteousness, non-duality is an inconvenient truth demanding connection instead of distancing.
Practicing non-duality challenges us at the deepest level. Its radical inclusiveness creates a moral dilemma for divisiveness; the heart is often reluctant to concede to what we understand cognitively. How do we act like we know what we know? In our polarized political culture, no conversation is possible because the two sides don't even agree on a common fund of facts from which to argue.
It is as each has entered a separate reality. Each thinks, if only the other side would accept the facts, if only the other side would trust the science, then things would be fine. The climate movement in particular names anti-scientific attitudes as a threat to civilization itself. Yet science, ultimately, is the study of the quantifiable. When we make decisions based on the numbers, something is always left out: that which we cannot measure, choose not to measure, or it inherently unmeasurable. These blind spots project a shadow onto the world. When I think of "nonduality" what comes to mind is the deconstruction of the modern divide between matter and spirit, between self and other, between human and nature, between the divine and the mundane.
Dualistic thinking creates divisions in the human psyche that preserve ecocidal, inhumane social structures, and facilitate personal participation in those structures. They allow us to maintain a human world that violates natural law, and a material society that ignores spiritual wisdom. As it turns out mystical traditions agree with his revelation and have venerated both secretly and openly forms of the Dark Feminine for millenia. The Dark Mother is the Great Mystery in its dark, deep, unknowable totality. It is said that any contact with her transfigures the soul.
She might make us uneasy because she is so full, so primal. She is everything that our culture does not allow- rage, terror, wildness, sorrow. Yet, she is also the tenderhearted mother, offering unconditional refuge and miraculous healing, and holding relentless vigil for all her children. The awakening process asks us to accept the fullness of reality, and the dark goddesses invite our fearless heart to dance with the beauty and the terror of life as it is.
Contrary to spiritual myths that insist on positive thinking, studies tell us that embracing our dark emotions- anger, fear, despair- is vital for psychological wellbeing. Similarly, dark mothers model radical hospitality towards all of experience from the most painful to the most blissful, teaching us to use it all as coal for the fires of awakening. The presentation will dive into teachings of holy darkness via the trope of the Dark Feminine. The Dark Mother invites us to turn toward that which is difficult for us and feel it fully and deeply. She is the great initiation into spiritual maturation, she is the devi of disillusionment Arising in difficult times of transition, it is said every contact with Her transfigures the soul.
She knows no spiritual bypass. There is no experience, no part of our imperfect human lives that has no place in her adoration, the Dark Mother has no orphans. The dark feminine reminds us that life is continuously arising out of deep mystery and surrender is the only true path. Our planet is in crisis, our spiritual narratives full of shiny fluff. Holy darkness might just be the medicine we need. Buddaverse and Karma. Born into different bodies, our identification with both the feminine and masculine archetypal energies can be potent and transformative.
Leaning too heavy into one side or the other, however, can lead us to relegate vital aspects of our being to the shadows of our unconscious. Together, we will embark on an embodied exploration of our gendered shadows and our inherent, indivisible wholeness. Using the tools of somatic inquiry and creative reflection, we will slow down and drop into the deep well of wisdom that resides just beneath the surface of our everyday awareness.
Join us in reclaiming and re-membering that which is essential to our ongoing personal evolution-- our feminine-masculine nature, our wholeness. Why do we still perceive in linear time when there exist two time dimensions in F-Theory and four Levels in the Holographic Multiverse?

Collins and Smith are immediately interested. They urge her to keep digging. Collins and Smith say Keen belonged to the Philadelphia School, consisting of talented architects who designed on the Main Line, creating houses that fit comfortably into the landscape.
At Reynolda, landscaper Thomas Sears of Philadelphia, who frequently collaborated with Keen, designed the grounds. She adds that the McAlister house is also more formal than Reynolda. When he came to Winston-Salem, Keen already had 20 years of design work for the rich behind him in Philadelphia and other Northeast cities. Keen built him a Tudor Revival house, with grounds by Sears, on a downtown thoroughfare once known as Millionaires Row. Keen eventually had so much work in WinstonSalem and vicinity he moved to the Twin Cities.

This year brings the promise of great beginnings and happy endings — in your new home. So enjoy your life. For more information,. A little colder and it could snow. Linda, my bride, was at the beach visiting with some of her girlfriends and I was on my own for the day. I had planned to dewinterize the little Airstream to get her ready for our early spring trip to Everglades City in Florida; but with weather like this, I probably needed to pour in some more antifreeze.
The heck with it. I arranged all the photos and journals I wanted to look at and kicked back in my old leather chair. It was going to be a good day. She had gone through a lot of photos, family as well as sporting, and had organized them in several albums. There were still quite a few more pictures that were randomly stacked in boxes, and I started with those first. The first photograph I pulled from the nearest box was a stopper. There were five of us standing around a pickup truck that had a dog box in the bed. A field trial, I thought. Paddle was my first yellow Lab and she was just a puppy.
It had to be in the early. The five of us in the photo were a lot younger, just like our dogs, but in some cases not as well behaved. At the time I considered it as a random occurrence, the five of us from varied backgrounds with retriever dogs all about the same age. Dick Coleman was sitting on the tailgate, I was leaning on the side of the truck, arms crossed, deep in a conversation that long ago disappeared from memory. Jim Lasley was on the other side of the vehicle laughing at something Edwin had said, and Tom Pate looked as if he was just taking it all in.
It happens sometimes. The stars align, the moon happens to be in the right quarter and good luck abounds. Dick won more than his share of field trials and made game retrieves that we still talk about. There was one goose-hunting trip we made to Easton, Maryland, when Sandy rode in the center of the rear bench seat between Jim and me and was more civilized than the rest of us on that adventure.
Somewhere, maybe in one of these boxes, I have a photo of Sandy sleeping so close to the giant fireplace in the Tidewater Inn he almost could have been one of the logs. Honcho had a mind of his own. The Sporting Life his bride, Lida. A petite Boykin spaniel, she more than made up with heart for her lack of size.
She could compete with the bigger dogs and actually show some of them how it should be done. Unfortunately, she was not allowed to participate in the Tar Heel Trials because, at that time, the AKC did not recognize Boykins as a registered breed. Later, Tom got a long-legged, rangy black Lab that made retrieves that did the Labrador breed proud, but Tom never forgot that Princess set the standard. Last but not least in this canine quintuplet was my yellow Lab, Paddle.
Not just occasionally but all the time. I was lucky; Paddle fit the description from the very beginning. She was so smart in her special dog way that I was constantly amazed. In field trials, she placed second in her first puppy stake, and won her first derby contest. In actual hunting situations, she made some retrieves that seemed next to impossible. She loved my old Bronco because when she was in it, we were on the way to something fun. Coleman even thought I should let Paddle drive after we had a hard day afield.
All these dogs have gone on to that great duck hunting marsh in the sky, just waiting for us to join them. As a matter of fact, one of the five men who were standing around that old pickup in those early dog-training days has already made the trip. Help your loved one make a safe return home.

We are a family owned and operated business which gives us a unique perspective in providing exceptional customer service. Yet, most of our rooms had been occupied, in as private a way, by dozens of others before. In twelve years, I moved into and out of eight apartments in New York City. Each time, a new space was just that: new. Mine, immediately, exclusively.
This is a strange defense mechanism we intuitively employ, or rather, selectively employ, because, of course, there are countless spaces in which we exclusively imagine past ghosts. See where Thomas Jefferson once slept. Wander stone-walled rooms where Incan priests sacrificed animals.
This must be why, before we move into a previously occupied space, all clues have been removed. The ring became a talisman. Then it would shift again, now filling with the posters, hair ties and lip glosses of a teenage girl who might have procured the token from a gumball machine, with friends who have similar ones in different colors. But each to her own. Some people feel panic when they look at the stars and fathom their smallness in the universe, while others feel peace. Joseph M. Bryan, better known as Joe, has been dead for more than thirteen years.
People in their early 20s or older people new to Greensboro probably have no concept of Bryan except as a municipal park with two golf courses, an expressway to the airport and a business school at UNCG. Money he left continues to do an awful lot of good. The Joseph M. Oh, Bryan Foundation money helped create the park. NewBridge Bank Park downtown? That was a Bryan Foundation initiative with Action Greensboro. Bryan never attended a college. He had to quit a boarding school he was.
They had taken over his care after his mother entered an insane asylum. So the board of the foundation feels responsible to do what he would want us to do. Those who do remember him recall a robust man with a baritone voice and white mustache who often wore a Greater Greensboro Open now Wyndham Championship green blazer and similar coat from Augusta National Golf Club, where he was the oldest living member for years. People also remember a man who was gruff. He fooled you, Melvin says. According to Melvin, people thought they could fool Bryan with their knowledge of a cause.
But Bryan never entered a venture without knowing a great deal about it in advance. He had a technique of asking just the right questions from those requesting or proposing. Bryan has given away more money in death than life. Some family members showed surprise and anger. When they sued to see the contents of the will, they found no surprises. It has amassed that much even while giving away an equal amount since Melvin remembers as mayor in the s and early s a newspaper story broke that federal cutbacks would force the city to end its annual teenage summer employment program.
Some teens would be without jobs. Melvin received a call from Bryan. He wanted to know if what he was reading was true. Assured it was, he asked how much the program cost. Bryan Park is named for Bryan though he contributed no money to its initial creation. It offered a Bryan Burger, but he always ordered a ham and cheese. Fine, build it, Bryan said.
The park held important meaning to Bryan, who loved the outdoors. Melvin drove Bryan there often so he could watch people play golf, picnic and enjoy themselves.

To make sure the park was kept top notch, the foundation leased it from the city and hired a private management firm to operate it. The Champions course, where holes border Lake Townsend is considered a design gem, and work of art. And the soccer facilities are unsurpassed. The foundation pays for the giant balloons in the revived Christmas parade. The crowds now lining the curbs along the downtown route approach , Some people were surprised the foundation would put money into a ball park, but Melvin saw it as economic development, a foundation goal. And it has, as the new apartments along Smith Street near the park demonstrate.
For decades after his retirement as a Jefferson executive, Bryan kept his panel office on the eleventh floor of the seventeen-story Jefferson Building, which Price built in The carpeted floor in the middle of the room had a hole from where many had stood asking for money. Melvin says the Bryans never commingled their assets. At age 19, after serving as an ambulance driver during World War I in France, Bryan made money fast in New York as a cotton broker dealing with a company in Haiti.
A photo shows a rakish-looking Bryan in boots, carrying a pistol on his hip in Haiti. He borrowed the needed money from an uncle who was a doctor. Melvin says Bryan paid back every cent. Bryan later would make millions investing in oil. On Christmas Eve, Bryan would let his no-nonsense guard down to dress up as Santa Claus and open the home to neighborhood children. The couple had no beach or mountain home. It had a modest farmhouse. He willed the land and house to his longtime secretary. Snead had just won, in , the first Greater Greensboro Open.
Bryan had underwritten the event in case it failed financially. Despite his wealth, Melvin says, Bryan remained frugal. He wore the same suits, well-tailored, for twenty or thirty years. Bryan always wore a coat and tie to the office, a tradition Melvin continues. Melvin wants the public to know the good Bryan did alive and in death. His tentacles are all around this community. About the only thing he failed to achieve was living to and seeing Bryan Boulevard completed.
While the 6. He lived to see it completed to New Garden Road. OH February Several years ago, a woodworker and Navy veteran named Don Ames arrived in Greensboro from Michigan hoping to find a job in the local furniture industry.
SAND17 US - SAND
On his first night in town, however, while staying at a downtown motel, Ames was robbed of all his money. The next day he hit the streets, taking up a position at the corner of Lee Street and Murrow Boulevard, collecting enough spare change from strangers to buy a tarp and begin setting up a place for himself in the woods off Freeman Mill Road. On any given night, according to the National Alliance to End Homelessness, as many as two million people sleep in public and private shelters, on streets or in makeshift camps like the one Don Ames soon called home on the southern flank of the city.
Don Ames was fortunate to have fallen between the cracks in Greensboro, not only because few cities anywhere can match the Gate City for the number of churches, private organizations and local and state governmental entities that serve the diverse needs of the homeless and others in crisis, but also because of a heightened attitude of compassion that seems to prevail here among all economic classes — the desire of one neighbor to help another, even if that neighbor happens to be hungry, homeless and a complete stranger.
Others cite our rich cultural diversity as a natural means of breaking down barriers and outreaching to others in need. In June of , the United Way of Greater Greensboro launched an ambitious campaign aimed at ending homelessness in Guilford county — which, entering its sixth year, seems to be generously bearing fruit. Unlike most conventional shelters, the center offers storage lockers, access to telephones with personal voice mail , resource counseling, job and life skills training and replacement IDs — all vital elements for someone aiming to rebuild a life.
Chanelle James matched homeless folks with an entrepreneur spark with her business students, the goal being to create a viable small business. Piece by piece lives are being restored and put back together by compassionate people who support the goal to end homelessness in this county. Henry offers five stories of how lives have been transformed by a city with a heart. One tells of a Master of the Universe who fell from grace in order to find it. In another, an addicted mother is saved by a real-life angel.
Then comes a cook who was once in the grip of addiction but now dishes up love from behind the counter. Finally, two ladies from a start-up church began feeding people out of the trunk of their cars and created a remarkable Sunday morning outreach and unexpected street fellowship.

Stoned or drunk — he was often both — Margulies came up with clever ads for Fortune companies. I was very creative. He used LSD, opium, cocaine — you name it. I never considered it a drug. Even so, Margulies stayed with drugs, while building up to a fifth of vodka a day. If anything I thought it would enhance my creativity.
He moved South for warmer climes and to work for the now-defunct ad firm, Long, Haymes and Carr. The money was good. He was a master of the universe. People saw him as a serious, hardworking guy. Although others in the business had addiction problems, for them he felt no compassion. He sought help and was told he needed to enter treatment.
On October 1, , he checked into Fellowship Hall, a highly respected treatment center off Hicone Road. He hated it at first. It was with a sense of relief to know I was an addict. I was I had spent most of my life on drugs and alcohol. His Fellowship Hall experience, however, pointed him in a new direction.
He moved to Smith Mountain Lake for two years and decided to go back to school to study chemical dependency. He did occasional ad consultancy work. He worked with a mental health clinic in Martinsville and then in Florida. He liked helping people. He had money from selling his share of his partnership at Trone.

He also sold his Summerfield and Smith Mountain places. He and his wife now live in Old Irving Park. He eventually returned to Fellowship Hall, but this time as a counselor. I have never seen any kind of facility that comes close to it in compassion, authenticity and just understanding chemical dependency. It was a light at the end of a long tunnel. Born to a year-old mother who became pregnant after she was molested, Monica became a mother herself at A year later, she was living on the streets of Winston-Salem, trading her body for crack or the money to buy it.
She stayed out there for seventeen years, high most of the time and often pregnant. She had six children. Her family absorbed five of the kids; Monica abandoned most of them in the hospital. She tried a few rehabs. They worked for a while. Then it was back to the street, where she gathered a string of criminal charges. When she was pregnant with her sixth child, a judge ordered her to attend a day program for expectant moms.
Before Monica knew whether she was accepted, she had the baby. She took him home. Things were OK for a while, but within months — about the time her son started eating solid food — Monica was back on the street. With her son. And her demons. She fed her son French fries and soda with the money left over from buying drugs. Her family was done with her. She seemed incurable. One morning, Monica was walking in the back door of a crack house when there was a knock on the front door.
Monica met her at the front door. Monica handed over her son. The lady and the baby waited for three hours. Monica peeked out the window. She saw her son in a car seat. They made eye contact. He looked so sad. Her face was sunken. Her wig was cockeyed and shabby. Her clothes were dirty. Later, when Monica was alone with her son, she broke down. The next day was his first birthday. She had nothing to give him, so she promised him a gift for later: a good mother. Monica entered the program at age 34, but she had the maturity of a teenager. She was street-wise and sassy. And they stood by her.
They hugged her and told her everything would be OK. They taught her how to parent, cook, clean, bathe herself properly. They showed her how to make a plan for each day, how to speak respectfully, how to dress with self respect. Even then, Monica was scared.
They let her in, loved her, and nudged her back into the world. She drives them to appointments, movies and other outings. They have a house. He wants to marry her. Her other children still live with family members, but on holidays and special occasions, they come to her house and sleep all over the place. They want to be with her. And she wants to be with them. He talks slowly, avoiding superfluous words, and when he gives speeches, he always opens with the same line.

Although Josh depends on his parents and nurses for the majority of his needs, he was able to design the entire website through a single microswitch controlled by his left thumb, which so happens to be the strongest muscle in his body. The opportunity allows him to give back to the same program that gave him and his family hope despite all odds. Josh was a healthy-looking baby. At birth, he weighed nearly seven pounds.
And then, suddenly, it did not. Two months later, Josh was diagnosed with WerdnigHoffmann disease, the most severe type of spinal muscular atrophy. Most likely, though, pneumonia would take his life. If I had four months to spend with my son, I was going to enjoy every moment with him. Then, Josh turned 2. It was OK for me to have a child who was different. We could get through it. The Cranfills could stop grieving and start living. Josh received intensive therapy five days a week.
He learned to drive an electric wheelchair and started talking — all before his third birthday. Each day is a new string of obstacles and triumphs. Generally, his peers accepted him. Teachers were another story. He made the honor roll through high school, even when his disease killed most of the muscle cells in his dominant hand. Notice the gold ring on his right hand. And the sliver of a tattoo left uncovered by his shirtsleeve. A sports fanatic, he is also the assistant varsity football coach at Western Alamance High School, the place where he made all those good grades and crossed the stage over a decade ago.
He operates his wheelchair by using a microchip that fits over his thumb. You bet the players can hear him. Add his microphone and amplifier and Josh is unstoppable. But at the end of the day, there are more important things to life. Some of them are just down on their luck. Others are habitually homeless.
All of them are hungry. Campbell should know. He was standing in that very line eight years ago. The Ministry is an ecumenical nonprofit that provides food, shelter and emergency intervention to anyone who needs it. Campbell, 52, recalls how decades of substance abuse had made him cynical and distrustful. These people loved me until I was able to love myself. Pop was a functioning alcoholic. Momma was always looking for something else in life and ended up finding it in a bottle.
His parents, he says, regarded his stealing as a game. He started drinking at Acid and cocaine came next. By 16, he was shooting heroin. The judge sentenced him to twelve years. He was It was in prison that Campbell got his culinary degree. When he got out, he had good intentions. But he did manage to stay out of prison for seventeen years until a federal check-forging charge caught up with him.
Campbell credits his AA sponsor, Larry Barnhardt, with helping him stay with the program.
