This Sunday, Also Rogue Mystics concert

Todd Cunningham, author of Energy Work 101 Sunday 11/13  at 2:00 PM
Spirit Tree Connections
987 New Loudon Road,Latham NY

Cultivating higher consciousness goes far beyond the meditation cushion.  As we cultivate higher states within ourselves, we begin feeling more comfortable in our every day interactions in this world. We begin to feel more personal meaning, and deep connection to people in our lives.  Unfortunately, many people have not learned skills to communicate with these more elusive aspect of themselves,  so they don’t feel a connection between ther spiritual lives and their daily lives.

In this Discussion, Todd Cunningham, author of Energy Work 101, (a personal manual with 10 exercises to help you become more conscious, aware and able to communicate with your higher source), will offer guided meditations and exercises geared to help you become more conscious and aware of your unique connection with Source, your higher consciousness.  We all have our own unique connection to the Divine, and Todd will be helping us reveal our own personal connection through skilled exercises.    By becoming more conscious of this connection, we are able to reliably access our higher nature and live happier and healthier lives with greater ease and joy.  We will find, there is no standard answer to these life questions and the answers are uniquely ours.  As we learn to skillfully pause and polish our connection to the Divine, it deepens and enhances our entire existence.

 Mark Shepard and The Amazing Rogue Mystics

November 19th, 2016 at Overit Studios, new Scotland Ave., Albany NY. 7-9:30 pm.  Get tickets here: Mark Shepard and The Amazing Rogue Mystics ( Get yours Now! Before they’re sold out!)

Mark Shepard, composer of the theme song of the Albany Peace Project, “Be The Change” is putting together an amazing lineup of his favorite talented musicians and calling this one time band the “The Rogue Mystics.” As part of his own personal 90 day challenge last summer he fantasized about what a cool and wonderful thing it would be to gather all of his favorite and beloved musicians together for a spontaneous and improvisational spiritual but not religious evening of his positive genre music sung by multiple voices and instruments… and a small, intimate audience that was every bit a part of the “band” as the band…Come join us on

Here’s Mark’s lineup so far:

1 Joe Mennonna –  Joe Mennonna is one of the most incredible musicians of our time. You name it, he can either sight read it or play it by ear. And on about 20 different instruments. Flute, piano, tuba, trumpet,  saxophone, guitar, drums, bass, pipe organ, accordion… whatever. He plays everything. He has played with everyone from Don McClean to Deep Purple, Vanessa Williams, Tom Rush, David Bromberg and currently touring with The Bacon Brothers (as in Kevin Bacon the famous actor guy).

2 Gene Moore – Gene Moore is an amazing electric guitarist. Mark thinks he’s one of the best in the world.

3 Rilee O’Neill – Rilee O’Neill is the golden voice that really nailed my Posi award for “Together We Can Change The World.”  She sang it back when she was only 11 years old. And she’s sung a few things recently like “Oh My Beloved” that Mark can’t wait to play for you. She loves to improvise and she will get a chance to do just that for your ears.

4 Joy Adler – Joy is one of Mark’s most recent musical collaborators. She sang awesomely on four of his most recent productions and added so much spark and fire, silk and soul to those tunes that HE HAD to have her join us. She, like Mark and pretty much every other player in Mark’s “dream band” is not just a musician. She is a masterful energy healer and it is so fitting to make music AND healing with her.

5 Brian Mellick – Mark has known Brian for probably 20 years. He kept bumping into him in various places and felt so moved and inspired by his percussion genius and personal authenticity that he just envisioned playing with him.

6 Roger Mock – The man who got Mark to learn other people’s songs! While Mark Shepard has known some of the dream band longer, Roger is the one he has played with the most. For 5 and a half years they essentially did 3 gigs a week and Mark  wrote  30 new songs in his general direction.  He will be joining us on Mandolin, guitar and vocals.

7 Pete Furlong – Mark and Pete enjoy singing harmonies together.  Pete’s fine clear tenor is simply the perfect blend for Mark’s voice. AND he’s an awesome percussionist and multi-instrumentalist and songwriter.

8 Sarah Puig – Sings some of the most unusual and cool harmonies I’ve ever had the pleasure of hearing. She is also an endless source of sweet quirkyness and wicked good puns as well as a fine multi-instrumentalist and songwriter.

9 Mike Covey – After Mark jammed with Mike, he quite literally caused him to create an entirely new way of playing that has increased his enjoyment of playing music with other people 10 fold. He is totally self taught but he’s one of the best teachers Mark knows.

10 Gary Goldberg  –“Master of Ceremonies”.

11 The Mystery Guest Singer.  You may recognize her immediately!….

Intention: Connection and Examples of Validation
J Kelly Reed
12/5 at 2:00 PM
Spirit Tree Connections
987 New Loudon Road,Latham NY

Living a life of intention can be baffling at first, but over the years, patterns emerge.  After working with intention for long periods of time, people develop a confidence that comes only through commitment to the discipline.

In this NUMINOUS talk we are fortunate to learn from J. Kelly Reed, who has spent a life time developing how to skillfully live on a moment to moment basis with intention.  Kelly will teach us to stand in our presence of the I AM while we face any challenge and cultivate a peace heart for those around us; as standing in our presence creates dynamic change.

Carving a homestead from a raw piece of land, living from the gifts of the earth over the years has kept me grounded, and centered. I received a certification from Cornell University for Home processing and a Certification from the Department of Agriculture; thus began a career involving Farmers Markets and Organic Baking. I became a member with the American Red Cross and held a NYS Ombudsman certification and a volunteer with Hospice. Recently I did a tour in Iraq as a civilian on military bases where I began the understanding in earnest of energies and their affect thus returning home to find exactly how healing energy works; I studied and received certifications in both Past Life Regression, BioEnergy Therapy, Medical Intuition and am an Ordained Minister.

SAVE THE DATE!!!  2017 Albany Peace Project Kickoff Program Concert –

Participate in the Albany Peace Project This January and Awaken the Hero Within with the Albany Peace Project This January!

Friday Evening, December 30,
Unity Church of Albany
7:00 PM

As the testimonials say below, amazing things happen when people participate in the Albany Peace Project.   The theme of this year is “Awakening the Hero Within,” because after three years of offering APP, we have heard some powerful stories of how when we advocate for the dignity and honor of others, we enlargen ourselves.  We feel greater dignity, self respect and deep purpose with our lives.  In these times of great global turmoil, we can find a place in ourselves through these meditations, where we know we are connected to a Loving Intelligence that connects us all, and “vote with our heart” to accelerate the presence of peace on this planet.   Taking a stand in our own hearts for peace, instead of feeling victimized by media accounts, makes our head go up and our shoulders go back.  Meditation Peace research has been demonstrated, however we need your help to get the local measurable results.  We can’t just talk about peace…we must “be it”

Come join us for a catalyzing uplifting evening on Friday Evening December 30 with exhilarating group of musicians,  singers and and also inspiring speakers!!!   The program concert will help you to start 2017 off right and set you on a trajectory to make 2017 your best year yet!

After participating int the Albany Peace Projet for two years, it is still hard to describe what participaing in the Albany Peace Project does…but it just changes you…for the better.

I asked my husband to join me meditating Jan 1 as part of the Peace Project, not something he would choose to do.  We selected 5:00 pm as our time. Yesterday at 4:50, he asked if we were going to be meditating. Thank you for creating this project. Peace starts at home. It has descended here!

I was very moved by today’s meditation, and I’m very moved by your work.  Thank you.

 First, your guided meditations this year are beyond wonderful.  I am loving them all.  

You’ve got some interesting people you’ve interviewed. 

Great interview & meditation today. Thanks

 Wow! I LOVE your guided meditation. You are so sweet and gentle.  Having us envision Albany residents in scenarios is brilliant! You are a gem; APP is fortunate to have you on the team. 

The Art of Feminine Presence
Jill Boyd

(was scheduled for 11/20  at 2:00 PM)
Spirit Tree Connections
987 New Loudon Road,Latham NY

If you are a woman who has been on a personal and spiritual growth path for quite some time and wanting to stop pushing to make things happen, come and experience an informational session and demonstration on the Art of Feminine Presence. It is a series of unique and tangible practices that increases a woman’s presence, feminine energy and vocal power so she can be heard, be seen and inspire change. These are practical tools that create massive results. You will see the change in yourself and other women immediately. It is undeniable. It is not where we intellectually discuss whether the feminine needs to be more present in our society. We already know that. It is not that we dance on a beach with hip scarves in the hope it will change our lives. We can do that on our own. Imagine walking into any room or any situation with a magnetic presence and attract the attention you want in your career and in your relationships. Your life will be transformed.

Jill Boyd is a certified teacher in the Art of Feminine Presence. She is an iconic image stylist. She is licensed in New York as a registered nurse and aesthetician. She received a masters degree from Long Island University in Community Mental Health Counseling. She graduated from Austin’s School of Spa Technology and afterwards received training from the Stoltz Image Institute in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas; Gabriel Productions in Miami, Florida; The Universal Style System in San Moreno, California; and the Conselle Institute of Image Management in Provo, Utah.

Special event!
Violence Interrupters:  Film Screening and Panel Discussion
Meet Everyday Heroes that Protect Albany Streets! 

Saturday October 22 at
Hubbard Interfaith Sanctuary
College of Saint Rose
959 Madison Ave, Albany
6:00-9:00 PM

The Interrupters documentary presents unforgettable profiles in courage, as three former street criminals in Chicago place themselves in the line of fire to protect their communities. The two-hour film follows the lives of these “Violence Interrupters,” who include the charismatic daughter of one of the city’s most notorious former gang leaders, the son of a murdered father, and a man haunted by a killing he committed as a teenager. As they intervene in disputes to prevent violence, they reveal their own inspired journeys of struggle and redemption.  This work is the inspiration for our local Cure Violence chapter (formerly SNUG) funded through Trinity Alliance of the Capital Region.

After the documentary, we will have a panel discussion featuring real life Cure Violence Interrupters who work heroically to reduce violence in Albany.

Donations will be collected to support local organizations that support peace in Albany.

Gaining Traction with Law of Attraction: Making Decisions With Great Amplitude
Bethany Gonyea
Sunday 11/13  at 2:00 PM
Spirit Tree Connections
987 New Loudon Road,Latham NY

“You are far too tolerant of mind wandering”   A Course in Miracles

People often yearn for change, and yet perpetuate mental habits that keep them stuck.  So many times, we find ourselves in mental loops, and have no idea that we have been through the loop hundreds of times.  These mental cul de sacs are often the reason why our intentional efforts to not take effect.  We spend far too much of our time in dead end thinking.

I heard someone say recently that he wanted to take some time off to heal, however, I had heard the person say this during many other situations.  I suggested it was no longer a time for him to heal, as it is a time to make a decision to be healed and stick with it.  Healing any aspect of our lives often comes down to us making a decision, and the decision must be made with a great amplitude for it to hold enough power for change.

In this talk we will discuss law of attraction and the areas where we feel stuck and trapped.   We will help you to review your thinking, and see where you can make a decision to move forward, whether outwardly or not.  You will be able to examine your thoughts and get off the hamster wheel you may find yourself on, and make a decision with such amplitude and power that you will finally be able to move forward in creating the life you want.  You will feel like a door has been opened, and you will need to decide if you want to walk through it.

1.4.17 – Mark Shepard – “Compulsive Singer/Songwriter” & NLP Master Trainer

If these meditations are helpful for you, please consider donating.  We are rapidly expanding and could really use more financial support to keep up with growth.  You can donate here at:  https://peacefulcities.org/donate/, or send a check made to Numinous, and mailed to PO Box 1322, Clifton Park, NY 12065 c/o Bethany Gonyea (this is important otherwise the PO Box won’t recognize it).

It was because of Mark that I was able to officially launch the Albany Peace Project in 2012.    He had the technical skills, the music, and I had the vision.  We always laughed a lot when we worked together, and you can see why in our interview.

Mark is incredibly insightful. He always brings a creative angle to whatever is being discussed and offers great value and content.  He calls himself a “compulsive song writer” because songs come to him all the time, while he is grocery shopping, exercising, or having thought provoking conversations.  It is common to talk to Mark and have him later tell you he wrote a song about the conversation you had with him!

Mark won a Positive Music Genre award for his song, Together We Can Change The World, which can be heard at this link: http://markshepard.bandcamp.com/track/375-together-we-can-change-the-world

As you can see, he is a ready made musician for the positive music genre.

He also wrote our theme song for the Albany Peace Project, Be The Change, which can be heard at this link:  http://markshepard.bandcamp.com/track/472-be-the-change

If you would like to receive a free positive genre music song that would inspire you each day to be your highest and best  (music is one of the greatest accelerants to boost our moods into a state of coherence) just enter your email at this link:  http://markshepardsongs.com/2017/01/03/359-dare-to-be-ltd-cd/

Mark is also a master Hypnotist and Neurolinguistic Trainer Facilitator.  He helps people overcome anxiety so they can bring their skills out to the world.

Mark also travels the United States offering his completely unique Bullying Prevention Now program in schools.  Mark’s program offers an dual message that not only encourages students to stop bullying each other (promote peace), but also empowers those that are bullied reminding them that one one has the power to define themselves other than themselves.  This two pronged approach is incredibly valuable, because University of Texas at Arlington criminologist Seokjin Jeong analyzed data collected from 7,000 students from all 50 states and found that anti-bullying programs do not work, they only make more clever bullies who learn how to more skillfully harass without getting caught.

Mark offers a message of great empowerment for those suffering being the target of covert bullies, so students are able to honor and recognize their inherent worth, even if they are suffering social ridicule.

To learn more about his amazing anti-bullying program that uses some of the most powerful Neurolinquistic programming tools please visit: https://markshepard.com/bullying-prevention-now/

People struggle with change for decades because they often do not understand that enduring transformation occurs at the level of the nervous system, not at the level of thought.  Without mastery of basic nervous system, energetic, and interpersonal and intentional skills we are set up to fail when it comes to change.  This will be an introduction to the curriculum of a ten month master class with only ten slots open.

SAVE THE DATE:  Funny You Should Say That  – Spiritual Comedy Night – with medium, Brandon Russ
Saturday evening March 11, at 6:00.
Shenendehowa Adult Community Center, 6 Clifton Common Court, Clifton Park, NY

Did you ever find spirituality funny?  
Have you ever snickered at the ironic situations that emerge as we attempt to skillfully walk between the worlds of Maya and Mystery?  
Have you ever stepped back from the latest spiritual book you were reading and say to your self, “What the heck and I reading?”   
Or better yet, put a book cover over it?

NUMINOUS invites you to sit back, relax and laugh at the spiritual life with medium and comedian, Brandon Russ.  Brandon will give us an entirely different perspective on the latest spiritual book we are reading so that we smile the next time we pick it up to read.

It is well known in shamanic traditions of indigenous healers that only when we can laugh and take ourselves lightly are we capable of any spiritual mastery.  It is common for shamans to be “tricksters” and set up clever situations to challenge people to lull themselves out of their dull day dreams and remind themselves of the adventure everyday life really is.  So come on out this Saturday evening, and laugh yourself to heightened consciousness…all for the greater good, of course!

More information coming soon….

SAVE THE DATE:  Yoga Comedy Night –   “I’d rather be in Samadhi”
Saturday evening May 6, at 6:00.
Shenendehowa Adult Community Center, 6 Clifton Common Court, Clifton Park, NY 

Have you ever had a yoga wardrobe malfunction exposing a little too much?
Or pretend you don’t see that happening to someone else?

Have you ever felt impossibly inflexible as you see others in what would be considered anywhere else, a “compromising’ pose.  
Have you ever gone to a hot yoga class and forgotten the clothes to change into after your shower?

When people start to attend yoga classes, they often want to spontaneously break out in laughter.  It is natural.   Then, we tend to get used to the language, the ambiance, and the poses, and unfortunately, it is tempting to take it  a little too seriously!  At this first annual yoga comedy night, we are going to remember why yoga is so funny!  We will be inviting several yoga studios to participate!  Please reach out if you are interested!

If these meditations are helpful for you, please consider donating.  We are rapidly expanding and could really use more financial support to keep up with growth.  You can donate here at:  https://peacefulcities.org/donate/, or send a check made to Numinous, c/o Bethany Gonyea (this is important) at PO Box 1322, Clifton Park, NY 12065.

This Friday: Special Guest Speaker from Brazil…and New events

Best Meditation in town on Friday night!
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.

$35 Donation Appreciated

Please wear white, if possible.

Feel free to bring photos of others for healing to be brought to the Casa in Brazil to receive prayer for a year.

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 FROM NUMINOUS PARTICIPANTS

– Prosperity Plus allows you to become a person of increase.  During the 10 week course, I became wealthy in every aspect of my life.  I reconnected with family and friends, became more financially solvent, and enjoyed every day as a brand new opportunity to allow all that I want into my life.

– 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

Changing Your Destiny Lines – Shamanic Ceremony for Accelerating Manifesting

(Tuesday, October 6 at 7:00 PM) CHANGED TO SUNDAY OCTOBER 9 AT 4;00
Shenedehowa Adult Center CHANGED SPIRIT TREE CONNECTIONS, 987 NEW LOUDON ROAD LATHAM

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.

The Jaguar Path Yoga and Shamanic school is accepting applications for the 2016-17 year.  You can learn more at:  www.JaguarPath.com

Using Meditation To Eliminate Emotional and Physical Pain

Tuesday, October 13 at 7:00 PM CHANGED TO THURSDAY OCTOBER 6 AT 7:00 PM
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.

Leave with a digital download of a mediation that will reiniforce skills.

Violence Interrupters:  Film Screening and Panel Discussion
Meet Everyday Heroes that Protect Albany Streets! 

Saturday October 22 at
Hubbard Interfaith Sanctuary
College of Saint Rose
959 Madison Ave, Albany
6:00-9:00 PM

The Interrupters documentary presents unforgettable profiles in courage, as three former street criminals in Chicago place themselves in the line of fire to protect their communities. The two-hour film follows the lives of these “Violence Interrupters,” who include the charismatic daughter of one of the city’s most notorious former gang leaders, the son of a murdered father, and a man haunted by a killing he committed as a teenager. As they intervene in disputes to prevent violence, they reveal their own inspired journeys of struggle and redemption.  This work is the inspiration for our local Cure Violence chapter (formerly SNUG) funded through Trinity Alliance of the Capital Region.

After the documentary, we will have a panel discussion featuring real life Cure Violence Interrupters who work heroically to reduce violence in Albany.

Donations will be collected to support local organizations that support peace in Albany.
