Friday Free Talk at Prajna Center for Yoga & Healing Arts, Belmont – “Receiving The Love That You Are”, Friday, February 13, 2015, 7:30pm to 8:15pm

Imagine the possibility that the extent to which you are currently receiving IS the fuel for your current ability to carry out your greater mission in life. Imagine an inflow and outflow that are inextricably connected. Wondering what your purpose is in life? Start by allowing yourself to fully receive your feelings about the life you have now. We will explore the world created by our consciousness, and consciously apply our awareness to the upgrading of our level of consciousness. Like taking the “red pill” in The Matrix, your current reality will never be the same if you choose tonight’s adventure.

An opportunity to deepen your study of these principles will be offered in a 3-hour workshop on Saturday, March 14, 2015, at Prajna.

WorkshopListening and the Language of Love, Saturday, March 14, 2015, 1:00pm to 4:00pm, Prajna Center for Yoga & Healing Arts, Belmont. Fee: $60 ($45 in advance)

In this experiential workshop, we will explore the words we use in our everyday speech as a window into our consciousness, and listening as our primary vehicle for cultivating receptivity. We will discover the power of language to activate the vibration from which we create our inner and outer reality. By practicing listening as an act of love, and speech as a form of sound healing – via the act of bringing spirit (breath) into form (words), you will open the doorway to a new awareness and a set of practical tools to upgrade your current reality in any area of your life your heart desires.

Activities include the following:

- whole body listening – feeling sounds as you make them

- awakening to the actual meanings of word patterns you currently (and perhaps unconsciously) use in your daily speech

- learning specific ways to upgrade your current reality through the combination of conscious choice of words and whole body listening to these words

No prior experience is expected. Attendance at the February 13th free talk is helpful but not required.
