8.24.18 Karin Reinhold, PhD – Lead Researcher for Resonant Peaceful Cities Project

It has been a delightful pleasure to work with Dr. Reinhold for the past several years.  As a professor of mathematics and statistics, she is aptly suited for this work.  Karin often quips that she is deeply committed to this work because it combines her two passionates Heart and Math…which is why she loves that we collaborate with the Institute of Heartmath.   Karin is a woman of many facets, including courageously exploring her own heart, acquiring the subtle nuances of Tango from her native country Argentina, and caring deeply that her university students obtain the mathematical understandings they need for success in their endeavors.

I have found that the more I live my mission, the more solutions appear before the problems.  Years ago, I started this project with Dr. John Foldy, PhD.  We had worked behind the scenes setting up our first peace project for a couple years.   Right before we launched he was diagnosed with cancer and unfortunately passed quickly and unexpectedly.  I never expected him to really pass, so I never worried about the future of the project.  Not for a second.  Simultaneously, people around town kept telling me about this math professor who liked the work of the Institute of Heartmath.  Eventually,  I reached out to Karin…and we have been having fun on this journey together ever since.  I am incredibly grateful to Dr. Foldy for his contribution to begin this project, and also, I have had so much fun taking this journey with Karin during the recent years.  She is a wise woman with a beautiful heart that shines through in all her endeavors.  She is looking forward to analyzing some data.  Let’s be sure we give her some good participation numbers!

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 that what Cindy shares speaks the truth.”

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.

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

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 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.

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

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 Cure Violence Interrupters and others who work heroically to reduce violence in Albany.

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.

TESTIMONIALS

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

The Inspiration For The Research

Summary of the Albany Peace Project

5157607_s

 Do you ever want to make a difference in the world,
but feel too tired and overwhelmed? 

Do you ever watch the news and feel discouraged that you can’t change it?

Do you often feel stressed and trapped with life’s challenges?

Then learn how to overcome all these challenges by participating in the third annual Albany Peace Project!  The Albany Peace Project is a 10 year research study designed to determine if an organized group of trained meditators creating a peaceful “coherent state” in their bodies and then focusing these peaceful intentions outwardly can measurably reduce local violence.  Our hypothesis is that focused peaceful intention has a real world impact, and dozens of other research studies suggest it as well.  We are gathering data to determine if this approach can positively impact the city of Albany, NY.

Not only does achieving a coherent state dramatically enhance the lives of individuals, but it has remarkable applications for the workplace.  As individuals achieve a coherent state, they are much more likely to work better in groups.

The Albany Peace Project (APP) team is currently working toward gathering 2,500 participants to meditate/pray/focus to achieve coherence together for 15 minutes a day for the month of January 2016 while sending peaceful intentions to the City of Albany.  Simultaneously, research will be conducted to record any favorable changes in the Albany, NY crime rates.

Research Protocol

Albany Peace Project team, lead by founder, Bethany Gonyea, MS and State University of Albany Mathematics professor, Karin Reinhold, PhD,  are drawing inspiration for their research protocol from the Maharishi University and from the impressive research team of Lynn Mctaggert, author of  The Intention Experiment.   To  date, dozens of studies have been performed, many published in peer reviewed journals, that suggests when a relatively small amount of people meditate there appears to be a corresponding calming of the entire population.  (See a brief summary is listed below)

For the past two years, we have been fortunate to be collaborating with the Institute of HeartMath which has graciously approved use of their evidence-based Heart Lock-In Technique.®   This state of the art mind-body tool leads the body-mind into a state known as Coherence, which facilitates synchronization between the heart and brain.  Coherence is a “sweet spot” in your nervous system, and Institute of Heartmath’s emWave instrument provides reliable feedback to individuals to help them achieve and sustain a coherent state.   The coherent pattern is characterized by its regular, sine-wave-like waveform, as contrasted to the irregular, jagged wave form of frustration.


HR Changing

When this state of coherence is maintained, it allows individuals to distinguish between the voice in the head, often the critical voice, and the one in the heart, where positive feelings of love, caring, and appreciation originate.  Learning how to “think” from the heart quickly transforms individuals in ways they may never have dreamed possible. Learn the steps of the Heart Lock-In technique in the powerful book The HeartMath Solution, by Doc Childre and Howard Martin or purchase an emWave device to be sure you are in coherence by clicking here

How The Albany Peace Project Will Add To This Inspiring Research…

The Albany Peace Project is a landmark historic effort.  It is the first time that a city has organized from grass roots to invite people of all different  religion, political and socioeconomic backgrounds to come together and simply contemplate and intend the common goal of peace.

Not just talk about peace…but become peace.

The Albany Peace Project has been created with the acknowledgement that not all faiths or political parties can agree on doctrine or political strategies,  but they can certainly agree to employ focused healing intentions to reduce human suffering.

Political pundits can talk about peace, but how well are they actually doing?   As hard as governing officials may work for the peace, they still need our support to help change the hearts and minds of people.  Because until we shift as individuals, we will not shift as a whole.   Establishing peace is work that needs to be done “by the people for the people,” which means we need participation from caring citizens such as yourself to do this incredibly empowering and promising research.  

We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.  Albert Einstein

  Research demonstrates that when people become coherent, they become more empathetic, which enables them to more easily make wise and compassionate choices not only for themselves, but for the people around them.

We need to become the peace before we can beckon peace.    How  else will peace be accomplished unless we ourselves become peaceful, and from that peaceful state allow a greater compassionate wisdom to emerge?

Can this actually work? There is a growing amount of evidence to suggest it will and time is of the essence.  Have you seen the news lately?   Your participation is incredibly important both for ourselves and the next generation.  How grateful our children will be when we leave them this research?   This project will literally “make history” by empowering people to realize that how we focus our intentions influences what we experience.

But, We can’t do this research without your help.  

Research suggests there is a “dosage effect”…which means we need a large enough “dose” of people participating before we will see a corresponding calming result.  What is that percentage?  We are not sure, we think at least 1%, but only time will tell.  That is why this is a 10 year research study.  We need to teach and train many many people.

Please tell your friends and family about taking advantage of this unique opportunity.  If you think of any other tools we can offer, please send your suggestions to info@numinousonline.com, and LIKE AlbanyPeaceProject on Facebook and let us know you are there.

Help us encourage 2500 participants to take charge of their own health, by teaching people how to lead their own nervous system into states of much greater health and well-being, while simultaneously reducing the suffering of complete strangers…it is a Win-Win!

Thank you for your interest and support!

Sampling of Studies Suggesting that Collective Meditation Corresponds With a Calming Effect On The Entire Population

One Example: Transcendental Meditation Research Organization

Washington D.C.:    June 7th – July 30th in 1993

For two months during the summer of 1993, up to 4000 people meditated twice a day.     The maximum decrease in violent crime was 23.3% and it occurred when the the meditation group size was largest during the final week of the project.

As the number of meditators increased throughout the 8 weeks, violent crimes decreased
