1.26.15 Meditation: Europa Baker, Yoga Intern at Kripalu

Some types of meditation are referred to as “fearlessness” training. In these meditative approaches, we allow negative feelings to emerge and observe them without becoming overwhelmed or engulfed by the feeling.  This approach fosters fearlessness within us, because through the experience we learn there is a portion of our spirit that is much bigger than what scares us.

In this interview, Europa Baker and I discuss how meditative practices raise self awareness which enables us to observe daily interactions from the broader perspective of a fearless observer.  From this witness perspective, we become more empowered to choose how to respond to life.

We are more aware of the possibilities each opportunity gives us.  Do we want to disassociate from our experience? Or can we observe and stay engaged with what is unfolding?

As we learn to cultivate a witness perspective through meditation, we develop a much stronger muscle to stay present and choose from a wider range of responses,  even during times of intense stress.

It could be said that one of the goals of spirituality is to unplug our identity from an earthly perspective, and plug into an eternal identity.    The witness perspective accelerates our ability to grasp our larger nature.

Europa eloquently discusses how the retreat lifestyle has given her a rare opportunity to cultivate the witness within her which has made her more cognizant of what is arising within her at each moment.

The New NUMINOUS schedule is now posted.  More classes to be posted soon.

June: Something for EVERYONE!

It is with amazing gratitude that I write this post…As I look at each of these events, I recognize how blessed we are because I have met so many wonderful people of such wisdom and depth.  You will see below that we are collaborating with amazing individuals.  There is an event for almost everyone here this month, and two events will be held in beautiful outdoor places.      Please scroll all the way down…all of these events support our efforts to encourage intentions for peace research.
Living The Discipline of Conscious Intentionality
Bethany Gonyea, NUMINOUS founder
Wednesday June 1, at 7:00 PM
Unity Church of Albany

More and more research is documenting that our mental intentions have real world impact.  As we come to grasp the enormous implications of this research, we learn how important it becomes that we create through conscious intention rather than unconscious default.  With Intention…everything counts…so we  need to be brutally honest with ourselves about what intentions we are emitting at all times.  We also need be aware when we are going “unconscious.”  Conscious Intention only works when we are inputting the same signal into the field repeatedly, and we don’t fall asleep at the wheel.

To skillfully sculpt our lives through intention, we need to learn the discipline of keeping our desires alive while facing life’s inevitable challenges.  We will discuss the concept that maintaining conscious intentions is similar to living from the peaceful eye of a storm. We may see all softs of things flying in the wind but learn not to attach to them and fly away ourselves.   We will also discuss what is our role in creating our lives and how to interface skillfully with the Loving Intelligence that connects us all, to sculpt a lives of the deepest meaning and engagement.

The Jaguar Path: the Benefits of  Shamanic Skills in Every Day Life – Part 1
Ray Crist, Shaman and Founder of The Jaguar Path Yoga School
Wednesday June 8, at 7:00 PM
Unity Church in Albany

Shamans are men and women who heal themselves an train others to cultivate their power and abilities to heal by learning to shift into “second attention”  First attention includes all of the ordinary information we experience through our five senses every day.  However, Shamans also access information form “Second Attention”, which means they sense the additional energy and information flowing around the filters of our five senses. A power innate to all of us. “Listen to your heart” ” Trust your gut feeling” etc.

When we train to widen our perceptual fields we can access this wealth of information along with a quite confidence and inner peace. Through the tools you will learn you will accelerate your healing and find both courage and the capacity to make the changes your heart and higher self wants you to make!

By training our minds to sense and become aware of this subtle information the way shamans do, we gain access to a whole new breadth of information that can be highly advantageous to our path.  We can even start to make changes without  “white knuckling” them, because we have accelerated accessing the crisp clarity required for sudden change.   As we learn how to access this occluded information we gain great wisdom and discernment, and our steps become more sure.

In this class, we are happy to invite back by popular demand, Ray Crist, founder of the Jaguar Path School of Yoga and Shamanism.  Ray will be offering us some practical Shamanic tools and understandings He will share with us how Shamanic training can help westerners to:
–    Learn tools that will help heal past traumas
–    develop an abiding sense of personal power, integrity and authenticity
–    understand your place and purpose in life
–    develop innate psychic impressions (second attention)  and understand them as a spiritual resource
–    deepen creative inspiration and expression
–    strengthen established regular spiritual practices
–    deepen your understanding of your personal relationships with nature, people, and living environments
–   experience deep mystical states that can elevate and stabilize you morally, spiritually and emotionally

This fall, Ray will be opening a chapter of his Jaguar Path Yoga School through NUMINOUS this fall, so we will be offering similar classes so that people can get a good experience of his work, and learn whether they would like to expand their training through the comprehensive 9 month program .  Ray is a grounded teacher, who loves to combine contemporary life with established primordial wisdom practices to help us live lives of greater meaning, purpose, ease and majestic wonder.

An Introduction to the Avatar Material – Living Deliberately
Anna Witt. Avatar Master
Wednesday June 15, at 7:00 PM
Unity Church of Albany

In this class we are fortunate to have Anna Witt, master of the extremely profound Avatar materials synthesized and collected by Harry Palmer.  The Avatar® Course is a set of practical, effective tools that allows people, in a very short time, to identify and change the conclusions, decisions, and agreements that are shaping their lives.  Participants set new goals or revive old ones, and use their rediscovered powers, create opportunities,motivation, and the courage to pursue dreams.

“Avatar is a non – religious practice that allows a person to reconnect with their true spiritual self. And along the way, students discover the source of issues, problems and concerns, learn ways to resolve and eliminate those issues, problems and concerns, and as a consequence gain the  ability to create the life they want. This is known as living deliberately.”

So, Avatar doesn’t really discuss what is consciousness per se, but it provides you with fundamentals tools on how your consciousness works.

“Allow yourself the gift of universal perspective. Wisdom will appear and your actions will be motivated by an intuitive, spontaneous, benevolent intent. There is no regret. Do useful things. Help others for the delight of helping others. Concentrate on adding value to the world rather than consuming the world.”
– Harry Palmer, author of the Avatar materials

I know from my experience as a surgeon that there are many treatments, from emotional to physical, which can heal the cause and relieve the resulting pain. This book is a wonderful resource for those in need of relief from pain. I have also personally experienced energy healing and the effectiveness of hypnosis in my life and work. I know from my experience that what Cindy shares speaks the truth.”

1.27.15 Meditation: Tim Moon, MA, CASAC

Today’s Meditation:

Today I interview, my good friend and staunch Albany Peace Project supporter, Tim Moon.  Who is such a good friend that he does not even mind when I call him the name “Steve” for no good reason!!!

As Tim immediately quips back, “I have been called worse!”

Tim encourages us to keep the camera rolling because it demonstrates his passion for “loving life on life’s terms” and practicing radical acceptance of all that transpires.  Tim says, “Acceptance is the answer to all my problems.”

If you would like to hear Tim talk more about how radical acceptance can transform our lives, please attend the Numinous program on Sunday, February 8 at 2:00.   Tim has a great sense of humor, and always has a way of getting us to laugh at any topic.   More information can be found below.

1.29.15 Meditation: Derek Healey, Spiritual Activist

Today’s Meditation:

I felt a real kindred spirit in Derek Healey.  A 27 year old anthropology student at SUNY whose long term goal is to become Naturopathic doctor.  Derek has been meditating since the age of 8, and has spent the last several years studying anything he can about healing.  He was learning so much and feeling so encouraged from his endeavors he too wanted to share these understandings with more people.

Derek has been creating opportunities for people to be ‘love in action’ inviting people to participate in a wide range of  service projects from a wild life sanctuary to a senior home.  My favorite initiative of his is the “love letter project” which he will tell you more about in the video, and I hope to incorporate into the 2016 Albany Peace Project.

If Derek is an example of what the Dali Lama meant when he said, “Teach every child to meditate at the age of eight, and violence will end in one generation”.  I believe it!!  Derek is a stellar example of how meditation in young children can help foster open hearts of service and prolific creativity.  To learn of Derek’s other projects, please visit:  CompleteHealthCircle.com.

1.25.15 Meditation: Bethany Gonyea, Albany Peace Project Founder

Do you ever watch the news and feel powerless?  Have you noticed those feelings of powerlessness subsiding this month?

I would not be surprised, because confidence and empowerment are positive benefits of doing this kind of work.  As we are willing to be accountable to our meditation practice and have our efforts measured, we no longer feel so much like depressed bystanders as we watch the news.  We know we are becoming part of a solution, which renews, restores and reinvigorates our zest for  life.

What is so elegant about this work is that people from all walks of life are able to side step religious differences, financial limitations, and political orientations and allow their minds to merge on a common result, peace.   Through this common contemplation, we pave the way for greater creativity and intelligence to emerge.  How else will peace happen, unless we are willing to make space in our minds to contemplate it?

I would like to thank Kirk Harbinger again for his passion to be sure the larger vision of the Albany Peace Project and Numinous were expressed.    His insight and foresight were invaluable.

Please look below for Albany Peace Project volunteer opportunities that will help keep the good “vibes” going all year long.

I am extremely happy to say, that since this video was recorded (11.30.14)  thanks to Beth Sutor, we have made amazing strides toward getting meditation into area school districts.   Thank you Beth!
