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.

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

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.

1.28.15 Meditation: Karin Reinhold, PhD, Albany Peace Project Researcher

Today’s Meditation:

As many of you know, I started the Albany Peace Project with SUNY professor, Dr. John Foldy.  We worked behind the scenes a few years trying to figure out the best ways to approach this landmark project.  Right before we were ready to go public and finally launch the first phase last year, Dr. Foldy was diagnosed with colon cancer and passed relatively rapidly the following spring.  It was a totally unexpected turn of events.  Not only did we experience the loss of Dr. John’s sense of humor in our lives, we needed to figure out how to proceed.

As usual, I was back to the Creative Source requesting guidance on this most unusual project.  And, as usual, the Creative Source was already preparing for the needs of the project.  I kept hearing about Dr. Karin Reinhold, a SUNY Mathematics Professor who was interested in working with the Albany Peace Project.

As I have gotten to know Karin, I have marveled at her presence in this project.  She is an amazing pioneer and who has such a strong spirit. I have chuckled  many times how I give her only basic details about about opportunities to promote the Albany Peace Project and she willingly shows up with such an open and “can do” spirit that makes me smile!   This work is her heart’s deepest desire, as she would like to bring it to Buenos Aires, Argentina, her home country.    I am hoping that Albany will come together in such a way that will inspire other cities to organize in a similar manner.

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!

If you are interested in making the 2016 Albany Peace Project even better, please pay attention to future calls for volunteers in the following areas:

Priority: website support  – Priority: Fundraising    – Social Media Marketing   – Media Support, press releases           – Photography – pictures of Albany      – Video Tech Support         – Database management & Mailing   – Data Collection   – Special Projects     –  College internships     – Community Outreach

1.30.15 Meditation; Heather Loucks, Quantum Communities

Today’s Meditation

Well….Today is the last new meditation leader we are introducing…but I can see why her interview was saved for last.  It is because her interview does not suggest a closing of this work…but a continuation of it.

I always knew that as good as the opportunity of participating in the Albany Peace Project in January was going to be for many people, I also knew that February had the potential to be even better!  Because the “side effect” of this work is massive creativity.  After cultivating this level of self mastery for a month, people automatically feel more empowered start looking for new ways to express their broader understanding that is revealed through this work.

Through this work people often find dreams inside of them that they never new they had.  They also may feel too shy or stuck in life’s responsibilities to pursue them.   If you find yourself in that position, please meet Heather Loucks, a visionary, and founder of Quantum Communities.  Heather has some land west of Albany that she is inviting people to come look at as incubator space to start pursuing their own dreams.  It is her dream to help you with yours.

I am looking forward to checking in with her next year to see what creativity unfolds!

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.
