Love, Passion and Enlightenment: An Inner Quest

About This Event

On our journey into self-discovery and wholeness, inevitably there arise obstacles that impede our progress and prevent us from living the life we know we are meant to. Whether at home or the workplace, our interactions with others and life can at times bring pain and struggle to the surface, making our lives seem unbearable.  Confronted with mounting negative thoughts and emotions, our ability to effectively deal with our problems is impacted as our inner resources become depleted and we become frustrated and discouraged by our inability to cope. Reaching the limits of what we can handle, most people become increasingly anxious resulting in a downward spiral of hopelessness and confusion, placing further excess strain on our body and mind.  Cut off from ourselves and unable to easily connect to others in meaningful and fulfilling ways, we feel more and more alone and isolated, struggling to maintain a sense of optimism and hope.  Feeling both powerless and desperate to make a change, our judgment becomes clouded and we revert back to old, ineffective, and sometimes destructive ways to resolve problems.  Taking ownership of the need to break the cycle of these old patterns and establish healthy and lasing new patterns is a vital step towards an awakening to Who we truly are.

In this workshop, you will be provided the tools to help remove the impediments preventing your arrival at the next stage of your personal and spiritual journey.  Within a group structure, you will be supported in releasing the mental, emotional, and physical blockages that have prevented from experiencing the sense of freedom and peace that we crave.  By rooting out deep-seated fear, angry, and feelings of inadequacy. participants will experience newfound freedom and insight.  We will explore new ways to live with more focus and direction that is aligned with who we are and brings more meaning to our lives.   We will work to cultivate fearlessness and passion necessary for developing the strength and determination to take on the challenges before us.  And we will seek to remove the barriers to effectively expressing and receiving love in our lives and rekindle the sense of aliveness and joy and fulfill the purpose for which we were born.

We will utilize a variety of methods and techniques including:

-Yoga and Bioenergetics to open the body and release blockages and dramatically increase energy flow and mental concentration.

-Guided Visualization/Meditation to reconnect to the inner child to identify and root out patterns of thought and behavior that have shaped our outlook and held us back in life.

-Holotropic/Transformational Breathwork to remove mental, emotional, and energetic blocks helping ignite and accelerate the healing process.

-Group/Partner Exercises (Dyads) to create a safe sanctuary to dispel the hurtful past and/as well as deepen contact with others to reveal inner truths we tend to hide or avoid when isolated by ourselves.

      Harvest Celebration 2018

    As always, a delightful evening!. Thoughts: 1. May want to publish an agenda in future. Not wise to be fashionably late. Reports were that the event was in full swing at 6:30 PM and 6:45 arrival felt like we were catching up. 2. Would be wise to provide the wifi information so everyone could connect for the text fundraiser. Verizon worked but several people near me said that they could not connect using ATT. The wifi would allow everyone to connect See you next year!!

      A Magical Place

    The Copper Beech Institute offers a wide variety of courses, meditations, workshops and is housed on a beautiful peace of property. I enjoy the Wednesday Candlelight Meditation as a group or 30-40 of us meet to share this mindful experience and are led by the incredible Miranda who always gives a talk that seems to hit home. This place is filled with such love and kindness. Go check it out!

Thank you!
