Spirituality & Consciousness
Buddhist Psychology is an ancient way of being in relationship to suffering which allows you to be an observer of yourself from the macro perspective of your spiritual being. With this understanding and practice, you will enable yourself and others to detach from the pain that comes with grasping desires and the inability to let go as changes occur. From this perspective, you will feel yourself connected to something greater than yourself and more aligned with the natural cycles of existence. This will bring you greater peace and balance.
Distant Healing and Active Prayer will be explored in different applications. Learn the power of conscious visualization, thought forms and intention setting.
Group Healing Techniques are exponentially powerful with the collaboration of people and their ancestors working collectively with intention to heal. Powerful healing is channeled through sound-song, drum, rattle, laying-on of hands and other energy healing practices, and movement-dance.
Meditation engages your mind in a way that is centering and deepening, allowing you to enter into a place of stillness and expansive consciousness which allows you to feel the spaciousness of time and presence, and to see clearly the myriad opportunities to manifest expression that you are able to choose from.

Modern Hypnotic Methods are useful for facilitating a deepening of the client-therapist relationship to support a healing process of awakening and re-aligning the client with the healing power that lives within. In understanding how hypnosis works we also deepen our understanding of how layers of "hypnotic" conditioning of belief systems has interfered with how they function in the world and the actions and choices that are made as a result of these beliefs. These gentle nurturing techniques will enable you to help yourself and others rewire and transmute negative conditioning in a ways that do not prompt defensive self-protective responses. A relaxed nervous system is a more fertile seed bed for healing and growth.
Shamanic Journeying enters us into alternate realities, using drumming, rattling, and power objects, in order to obtain information, find guides, and meet power animals. Intuitive and Psychic States as a mode of relating to the web of connectedness is a vital, though often unexplored aspect, of our being which ancient and still living cultures have raised their kids with but which we in the west have lost our connection with over many many generations. It is both ordinary and sacred — ordinary magic — that opens the way to guidance, supports resourcefulness and in its skillful practice awakens an awareness that nourishes wisdom. Intuition informs us about our inner dynamics: relationship issues, health, work and, at the deepest level may provide us with a connection to our soul's pattern. It is a skill that can be taught so that its natural presence evolves.
