1.9.16 Meditation; Ray Crist, Founder of Jaguar Path Yoga School

Candace Pert PhD, an American neuroscientist and pharmacologist who discovered the opiate receptor, the cellular binding site for endorphins in the brain, writes in her book Molecules of Emotion, that our emotions influence everything we do….even where we point our eyes!   Pert often told her audience that we were designed to feel “Go(o)d.
“God presumably did not put an opiate receptor in our brains so that we could eventually discover how to get high with opium,” Smithsonian magazine quoted Dr. Pert as saying.

We have talked a lot this year how we all have access to this place within us where we can feel good. But feeling good isn’t just good for our emotional health, it has a profound influence on our physical health as well.

In today’s meditation, it is a pleasure to introduce you to Ray Crist, avid traveler, and Founder of the Jaguar Path Yoga School.   After being diagnosed with cancer with only months to live, Ray traveled the world looking for the best healers he could find.  What he learned was how he needed to do a life “makeover” which meant he not only needed to heal himself physically, but also change his emotional landscape as well.

In this talk, he mentions how important it is that we start living from a center of operation within ourselves that calms down the alarm center of the brain (the amygdala), so that we can maintain the seat of our consciousness in the neocortex.

Ray now travels to Peru twice a year to learn from healers in the jungle, and brings others there as well.  He will be bringing one of these healers to Kripalu, in Massachussetts in May.

NUMINOUS LECTURE SERIES FOR JANUARY
Programs are held weekly, on Wednesday evenings,  at Unity Church of Albany, 21 King Ave, Albany, NY.

How Do We Love…Well?????    (It may not be what you think)
James Peterson, LCSW-R, Founder True Heart Path
Wednesday January 13 at 7:00 PM
Unity Church of Albany

Have you ever regretted how you ended a relationship wishing you had not taken certain things for granted?
Has someone who means a lot to you ever hurt you deeply by an offhanded comment?
If you were to die tomorrow, would you you be remembered by your deep love for those around you…or something else?

We would be well advised to keep these questions fresh in our mind.  At the end of our lives, we will review our choices, and how well we loved will be the most important questions we ask ourselves.    Unfortunately, these questions are often forgotten as we strive to meet the urgency of life’s daily demands.  But, in this class, James Peterson, LMSW-C, will remind us how important it is that we not only love…. but love well. 

What does it mean to love ourselves and others well?

Even more importantly, what keeps us from loving?

James created the True Heart Path Program to help people come back into alignment with what he calls, their “true heart.”  The True Heart is what resides underneath so many of our actions, however it’s expression gets obscured through life’s demands and challenges.  James reminds people of their deepest wisdom as he adeptly guides them back to their greatest teacher, the teacher within of the True Heart.

James guides people to see all of our circumstances as opportunities to release from what no longer serves us and discover true peace within.

See how you can learn to add more power and beauty into your moment to moment existence to help make your life and our world a better place for peace and love to prosper.

Mindfulness For Busy People
Anne-Marie Serre, IT Specialist/Corporate Meditation Leader
Wednesday January 20 at 7:00 PM, Unity Church of Albany

This session will help you apply the transformative power of mindfulness to your busy life, helping you find the coherent calm space within you, as you focus yourself for whatever challenges you face.

Mindfulness is not mystical or magical, it is actually somewhat methodical.  There are basic techniques you can use to broaden your perceptions at any moment, which enables you to resource a much broader palette of elevated feelings, including greater joy, clarity and sustained well-being.

As an IT consultant, Anne-Marie Serre, has had to hone her ability to stay calm under pressure.  In this talk, she will share the best mindfulness techniques she has cherry picked to help us work gracefully under periods of intense stress.  She will discuss how mindfulness techniques do not actually take any “time” at all, because brief periods of mindfulness actually improves focus, energy, efficiency and creativity all which yield greater results in less time.

Programs are held weekly at Unity Church of Albany, 21 King Ave, Albany

1.13.16 Meditation: John Welshon’s, Author

Good Morning,An interesting thing can happen to us in midlife. We can get lost in the drudgery of life and forget that our lives are the miracle they actually are….We can start to look at all of life as “Been there, done that.”  We narrow the breadth of our experiences to relatively few things, hang out with a decreasing circle of people, listen to the same music, all while a creeping depression starts to move in on us as we wonder “is this is all there is?”    The good news is?   What I have witnessed time and again is that when people start asking this question, that’s when they really start living.In this talk, John Welshons and I talk about the concept of “beginning again”, looking at life with fresh eyes so that we can allow our natural wonder to emerge, and how meditation facilitates our natural awe.  For instance, instead of getting bored with meditating on his breath for 47 years of meditation practice, I remember John once saying that the simple act of becoming aware of his breath has become exquisite!Meditators develop an acute sense of experiencing the world that enables them to engage in life with gusto!  That is why you will see such enthusiastic meditators, and why people start to pursue creative projects after taking up a meditation practice.    During meditation we “metabolize” our lives so that we have greater energy and attention to engage with life off the meditation cushion, which generates amazing creativity and energy to fuel passion in life.  While we cultivate the discipline of this delicate attention, we learn to become more present to appreciate the subtler experiences of life, both the good and the bad, which makes life sweeter overall.John has been practicing meditation for 47 years and has so much wisdom to show for it.  He shares his honed wisdom in three books that address life’s most challenging questions, Awakening From Grief, When Prayers Aren’t Answered, One Soul, One Love, One Heart.To learn more about how John answers tough questions through his books, visit his website:   onesoulonelove.comInterview.

Exciting Fall Events: Something For Everyone

Shamanism and Law of Attraction
Tuesday September 20 at 6:30-8:30 PM
Shenendehowa Adult Community Center
6 Clifton Common Court
Clifton Park, NY 12065

Current research is demonstrating intentions and prayers have measurable effects, however, shamans have understood this phenomenon for millennia and developed technologies to transmit intentions.

Shamans view the world as a matrix of energy and tell us that we all have a magnetic field around us called the luminous field.   As we walk in life, our luminous field is constantly radiating out information to the world and the electromagnetic field of the planet.   We are on one hand pulsing all our hopes and dreams and on the other emanating all our fears and worries. The law of attraction says what we put out is what we draw in. In this workshop Ray, founder of the Yoga Shamanic school, The Jaguar Path, will teach shamanic techniques to clear out the energy body and allow for each one of the participants to glow out in the world with confidence and ease so what they project in the world and attract in their life’s are only their hopes and dreams.

This is a dynamic, video based 10 week program that starts Monday 3/28.  It teaches a new way of living centered on spiritual practices for an abundant life. The program focuses on 10 universal laws that govern an abundant life and encouraging participants to put these laws into daily practice.

To learn more, please visit this link: http://prosperitypluscourse.com/

The strength for participating in a group like this one is to have the support of a mastermind group that helps you with your goals, that helps you keep motivation up and installs and maintains new thought systems and behaviors.

TESTIMONIALS

– Amazing.  Growth enhancing.  Be aware that your prosperity may come in avenues you do not expect.  Welcome it.

– The Prosperity Plus class has changed my way of relating to my own thoughts and feelings, and to the world around me.  Gratitude is more common in my life, and my reaction is down; I am acting upon my life now.  The best gift:  a group of like minded people I am blessed to be able to call my friends.  I am so grateful for being given this opportunity.   I’m also in for the next class! 

Here are 10 key principles that we will address:

Key 1: Honor your discontent. It holds the gift of your dream.
Key 2: 5 questions to test whether your dream deserves you, your time and your life energy.
Key 3:  Powerfully Rebut your story: “up until now it might have been true, but now I am partnering with a higher power. I and God can do anything.”
Key 4: Recognize fear for what it is: the border between the known and the unknown new you. In the unknown your answers lie.  We have the solution to the problems we face.
Key 5: Raise your vibration: bless what you have & be an agent of increase to others.  Intentioning requires an elevating emotions.
Key 6: Forgiveness work of self and others. It cleans your energy, removes blocks and leaks in your energy field, which creates a vacuum in your energy field for more positive things to come through.
Key 7: Get in touch with the voice of inspired insight, divine wisdom. Then act. (ALWAYS go to the edge of the light you see).
Key 8: Partner with someone to support each other in your dream. All things are possible to the ones that believe….others belief in ourselves helps us when we doubt
Key 9: Failure is just feedback. It allows you to know more of who you are. Choose to be better over bitter. Don’t let failure have you.
Key 10: Celebrate. It is about the process, and during it you discover who you are. That is what it is all about.

The power of this class is that of having a group that comes together each week to share their successes, which enhances everyone’s success.  We will have lots of fun and sharing as we learn how to create a mindset that fosters abundance in all areas of life.

The cost is $50 for the video materials plus tithing to Numinous as advised by Marry Morrisey as part of the course

Guest Speaker: Kelsie Kenefick, Official Guide for John of God

Friday September 30 at 7:00 PM
Shenendehowa Adult Community Center
6 Clifton Commons Court, Clifton Park, NY 12065

Internationally renowned healer, John of God, will be at Omega Institute in October 2016.  John of God has been healing people for over 55 years.  He is most famous for his  ability to perform physical surgeries without anesthesia or sterilization.

John of God has been on multiple television shows throughout the world, and Oprah went to visit him personally.  Wayne Dyer described in his book Wishes Fulfilled, how John of God healed him of leukemia…at a distance.

Kelsie Kenefick, author of Journey to the Spirit World, and official Casa Guide of John of God’s working residence in Brazil will be at Omega in Rhinebeck to help support the work of John of God where he sees approximately 1000 people a day.

I asked Kelsie if she would come lead us to into deep transformative meditation similar to the meditations that occur at the Casa where John of God sees thousands of people a day at no cost to participants.

It is this type of meditation, referred to as “current” that provides the powerful energetic charge through which John of God performed his healings.  In fact, when the “current” gets too low,(especially when he is performing a more intricate surgery, for example a heart surgery)  he will ask for more meditators to come sit in current.    This is a special opportunity to experience sitting in the “current” of energy of the world’s most revered spiritual healers and Kelsie is highly skilled at leading such currents.

Kelsie will talk briefly about meditative current to help explain how miracles can occur when saints and doctors from the spirit world come through to heal. This brief introduction will be followed by a powerful healing meditation.

Kelsie is an amazing person who has been traveling between the US and Brazil for the last several years, and who outlined how she personally experienced the miracles of John of God in her book “Journey To The Spirit World.”  It is her greatest joy to encourage others to have the experience.   She will lead us in a deep cleansing current.

This is a special opportunity to experience sitting in the “current” of energy of one of the world’s most revered spiritual healers.  Kelsie is skilled at leading such currents.

Please wear white, if possible. Feel free to bring photos of others for healing.

Using Meditation To Eliminate Emotional and Physical Pain

Tuesday, October 13 at 7:00 PM- Date change to Thursday 10/6
Shenendehowa Adult Community Center
6 Clifton Commons Court
Clifton Park, NY 12065

Often when people start to learn meditation, they may start with a formal process and formal instruction.  This cookie cutter approach of course has it’s incredibly valuable benefits, however, it often doesn’t meet the needs of people going through incredible pain, either emotional or physical.  People often attend these gatherings in crises and leave saying, “I tried meditation, it did not work for me.”  That is unfortunate, because meditation offers amazing tools to reduce human suffering.

As former Director of the Albany TMJ & Facial Pain Center, Bethany Gonyea worked with car accident patients teaching them how to use their pain as a biofeedback instrument to accelerate consciousness.  She uses these same skills to apply to emotional pain as well.  Bethany will share with you techniques and understandings that she has been cultivating for 25 years to accelerate well being.  It all begins with developing an “intolerance for feeling miserable.”    She will be offering her basic techniques for personalizing meditation from her new audio book, “Using Meditation To Eliminate Emotional and Physical Pain”  scheduled to be available by Christmas.

To accelerate manifestation, Shamans have been developing ceremonial technologies for millennia that externalize internal intentional processes.  Through ceremony, we accelerate manifesting by moving intentions from the internal world to the external world.     In this talk, Shaman Ray Crist and founder of the Jaguar Path  Yoga and Shamanic school  will be sharing a truly magical way on how to manifest something we want in the future. This can be a change in life, in relationships or even a goal we want to set for our work through the ceremony of Sand Painting.

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

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.

In case of rain, we will be working in a large space indoors…bring your curiosity and  a healthy desire to perceive things in your life differently!

NUMINOUS LECTURE SERIES FOR JANUARY

How Do We Love…Well?????    (It may not be what you think)
James Peterson, LCSW-R, Founder True Heart Path
Wednesday January 13 at 7:00 PM
Unity Church of Albany

Have you ever regretted how you ended a relationship wishing you had not taken certain things for granted?
Has someone who means a lot to you ever hurt you deeply by an offhanded comment?
If you were to die tomorrow, would you you be remembered by your deep love for those around you…or something else?

We would be well advised to keep these questions fresh in our mind.  At the end of our lives, we will review our choices, and how well we loved will be the most important questions we ask ourselves.    Unfortunately, these questions are often forgotten as we strive to meet the urgency of life’s daily demands.  But, in this class, James Peterson, LMSW-C, will remind us how important it is that we not only love…. but love well. 

What does it mean to love ourselves and others well?

Even more importantly, what keeps us from loving?

James created the True Heart Path Program to help people come back into alignment with what he calls, their “true heart.”  The True Heart is what resides underneath so many of our actions, however it’s expression gets obscured through life’s demands and challenges.  James reminds people of their deepest wisdom as he adeptly guides them back to their greatest teacher, the teacher within of the True Heart.

James guides people to see all of our circumstances as opportunities to release from what no longer serves us and discover true peace within.

See how you can learn to add more power and beauty into your moment to moment existence to help make your life and our world a better place for peace and love to prosper.

Mindfulness For Busy People
Anne-Marie Serre, IT Specialist/Corporate Meditation Leader
Wednesday January 20 at 7:00 PM, Unity Church of Albany

This session will help you apply the transformative power of mindfulness to your busy life, helping you find the coherent calm space within you, as you focus yourself for whatever challenges you face.

Mindfulness is not mystical or magical, it is actually somewhat methodical.  There are basic techniques you can use to broaden your perceptions at any moment, which enables you to resource a much broader palette of elevated feelings, including greater joy, clarity and sustained well-being.

As an IT consultant, Anne-Marie Serre, has had to hone her ability to stay calm under pressure.  In this talk, she will share the best mindfulness techniques she has cherry picked to help us work gracefully under periods of intense stress.  She will discuss how mindfulness techniques do not actually take any “time” at all, because brief periods of mindfulness actually improves focus, energy, efficiency and creativity all which yield greater results in less time.

Programs are held weekly at Unity Church of Albany, 21 King Ave, Albany

1.7.16 Meditation; James Peterson, LCSW-R, CIC

I am pretty passionate about James Peterson’s topic today….How do we love…well?
It has always seemed tragic to me that so many of us spend time with people we love the most when our energy is at it’s lowest.  

We see our family at the end of the day after stress hormones have accumulated in our body.  In the evening, these stress hormones cloud all of our interactions with the ones we love.  It seems to me that the cause of so many relationship challenges are merely mismanaged nervous systems.

Mindfulness and meditation enable us to press the reset button in our bodies at the end of a long day, so the people that mean the most to us, get the better part of us.  By practicing mindfulness, we can remember that each of us are not the same people at the end of the day compared to when we said good-bye to each other in the morning.  Life impacts us through the day, and it behooves all of us to reunite at the end of the day by looking at each other with what I often refer to as “fresh eyes“.  Mindfulness trains us to do that.

James specializes in this ability to see people with “fresh” eyes.  He has honed the art of loving well, and has inspired hundreds of clients to do the same over his 27 years of professional counseling.  Currently, he teaches people who have lost everything due to brain trauma (their health, job, and spouses) to find a genuine exquisite loving place within themselves that enables them to fall in love with themselves and life on a much deeper level.

Ironically, love is the subject of movies, the theme of songs, and eloquently described on greeting cards, but daily demonstrations of love do not get much press.

James will be offering a discussion about loving well and all of it’s challenges,  at Numinous on Wednesday, January 13 at 7:00 PM.
