We Need Your Help! IMAGINE…..

Help Us Reach Our goal of $2700 to purchase 10,000 Complaint-Free Bracelets to encourage Albany to go Complaint-Free in 2015!

Hear the inspiration for this Complaint- Free Program from Will Bowen, Founder, in this inspiring Video:

After we place this order for bracelets, we can book Will Bowen to come to Albany and present a live presentation of his Complaint-Free World Program at the State University of Albany in November!!   Over 10 million of these bracelets have been distributed world wide and have inspired people to  become more focused, effective and “certifiably happier” after taking the Complaint-Free Challenge.

Please help us raise the remaining $1,975 needed to purchase the bracelets that we intend to distribute around Albany through various retailers.  We can’t book Will to speak until after we order the bracelets.   We already have $725 in donations, but we need the remaining $1,975.

To encourage people to participate, for donations over $175, Bethany is donating a free gift of a combination coherence and subtle energy biofeedback session with a customized meditation CD for you to invoke a healing state specifically focused on your challenge based the latest intentional research.

Let’s raise this funding quick…so that we can book Will Bowen for November.   Imagine…A Happier Albany…

Imagine if your family stopped complaining…

 Imagine if your office stopped complaining…

Imagine if Albany stopped complaining…

“If you don’t like something, change it, if you can’t change it, change your attitude-don’t complain.”      Maya Angelou

Imagine If we could positively impact the lives of everyone in our community.

Imagine If we could do this in a fun way that pulls our whole city together.

As outlandish as it sounds, that’s exactly the powerful opportunity that the Albany Peace Project team is working to provide.

To encourage people to participate in the Albany Peace Project, we are embracing Will Bowen’s wildly successful Complaint-Free World bracelet campaign.  Will explains the complete Complaint-Free program in his book, A Complaint Free World—How to Stop Complaining and Start Enjoying the Life You Always Wanted.    Bowen’s idea has been featured on Oprah, The Today Show on NBC, The ABC Evening News, CBS Sunday Morning, People Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek and more.

This program inspires people to go  21 consecutive days without complaining (which takes the average person 4-8 months).   The program will be accompanied by a bracelet that we are distributing throughout Albany.  The bracelets will be an outer representation of inner transformation.  For more information please visit: http://www.acomplaintfreeworld.org and http://www.willbowen.com.

The impetus for distributing the bracelets is to inspire people to make positive changes in their inner life.  These inner efforts strongly magnify the power of a meditation practice to promote inner peace and happiness.

These bracelets are NOT fashion statements, they are tools.  

They are used to help us become more aware of our complaining patterns as we switch the bracelet from arm to arm each time we complain.  The goal is to keep the bracelet on the same arm for 21 days. (See a brief summary of the program below)

We expect to start with approximately 1500 bracelets, and utilize some of them to inspire businesses to offer additional funding support.  Please consider approaching your organization to see if they are interested in being a sponsor.  This is actually a lot of fun when it is approached as a group.  Listen to this endorsement already:

“By the way, I have started complain free Wednesdays at work.  For every complaint, we put a quarter in a cup!  It has been a blast today!!!”  Ann Becker

Our hope is to get 10,000 bracelets circulated in Albany within the next 6 months. Imagine Albany, NY a Happier City!   Please consider helping us start the wave of happiness by contributing to our first goal.

APP Meeting – Tuesday 4.26 at 6:00 Off Wolf Rd & MUCH MORE!

APP Meeting – Tuesday 4.26 at 6:00 Off Wolf Rd & MUCH MORE!

Hey Everyone….
Wow!  Great stuff happening for the Albany Peace Project 2016.  Please check out all four program below:

1) This Tuesday, (5.26)  we are holding the meeting off of Wolf Rd, at 4 Computer Drive West, Albany, at 6:00 PM.  We will be teleconferencing the meeting with Teri Suda, of Wauconda, Illinois who was responsible for inspiring the entire town of Wauconda to go “Complaint-Free” based on the program created by Will Bowen, author of the “Complaint-Free” world.

Will has been on Oprah and traveled the world teaching people how to go 21 days without complaining (which takes the average person 4-8 months).  The program will be accompanied by a bracelet that we are distributing throughout Albany.  The bracelets will be an outer representation of inner transformation.  The impetus for distributing the bracelets is to inspire people to make positive changes in their inner life.  These inner efforts strongly magnify the power of a meditation practice to promote inner peace and happiness.     If you want to help support the Albany Peace Project by inspiring your office or family to go “Complaint-Free” please attend this meeting and you can learn how you can obtain the bracelets.

We will be beginning a “GoFundMe” campaign to raise the $2000 needed to start our bracelet campaign.  Bracelets will have both the imprint of the “Complaint-Free World” and actual colored print of  “AlbanyPeaceProject.com.   Discover The Peace & Happiness Within Starting 1.1.16”   These bracelets are NOT fashion statements, they are tools.  They are used to help us become more aware of our complaining patterns as we switch the bracelet from arm to arm each time we complain.  The goal is to keep the bracelet on the same arm for 21 days.

We expect to start with approximately 1500 bracelets.  Please consider approaching your organization to see if they are interested in being a sponsor.   This is actually a lot of fun when it is approached as a group.  Listen to this endorsement already:

“By the way, I have started complain free Wednesdays at work.  For every complaint, we put a quarter in a cup!  It has been a blast today!!!”  

Our hope is to get 10,000 bracelets circulated in Albany within the next 6 months.  Imagine Albany a Happier City!   Please consider helping us start the wave of happiness by contributing to our first goal.    If you are interested in helping us gather the seed money to start the wave of happiness,  please use the donate button located at the bottom right of this page.

2)  We will soon be starting our Albany Peace Project Certification Program to help people feel confident stepping out to teach meditation at organizations throughout Albany.

It still amazes me that meditation is such a profoundly simple and powerful tool that has the startling potential to positively transform society in so many impressive ways. Meditation offers the solution to so many of society’s ills, including lowering violence, reducing stress related disorders and burnout, and improving academics.   This powerful tool is literally “under our noses”, and we have not even yet begun to tap it’s potential.  And what makes it even more amazing…it has all this power…and it is FREE!!!   I have already been observing how just talking about Albany Peace Project Certification Program is already changing perspectives and paradigms through Albany.    If you want to help spread the wave of peace and happiness throughout Albany by becoming a Certified Albany Peace Project leader…please attend the next APP meeting, tentatively scheduled for June 9…location to be determined.

Also, you can probably see that we are creating a new website, which should be finished within a few weeks.   My heartfelt appreciation for Sara McCauley for donating her time and talent for the website.

3) Next Numinous Talk:  Erasing the Neural Networks Responsible for Negative Thought Patterns – Tuesday 6.2 at 7:00 PM.  Shenendehowa Adult Community Center, 6 Clifton Common Blvd, Clifton Park, NY 

Have you ever felt you changed a bad habit permanently, only to find it re-emerge at a later time?  Do you still feel anxious when you are not meditating?  Do you try to think positive uplifting thoughts but still find your self rapidly slipping into negative thought patterns?

Although we may change  outward behavior, it is common for our old negative emotional reaction patterns to still be consolidated — stored in the brain’s long-term, “implicit memory” circuits.  If we don’t work to skillfully change these circuits, they remain indelible and permanent for the lifetime of individuals.   Although we can build different neural networks with new patterns of behavior, we often build these new neural networks in our brain “over” the old programming.

Old behavior often emerges because the brain is an energy hog, and when we have low energy, we can quickly revert back to outdated thinking patterns because the neural pathways for the old behavior still exist.   These old programs have often only been “written over” with the new behavioral programming.

This is a powerful understanding to have for those of us who are dedicated to a spiritual path.  The spiritual life is one of reprogramming and redefining past experiences while developing greater intimacy and communication with the Infinite.  This Divine intimacy requires a mind that is available, not stuck  in the past.

So….How do we actually ERASE the brain of old programming?

In this NUMINOUS talk we will apply what current neuroplasticity research has revealed, that the only way to to actually erase old mental patterns is through skilled  memory reconsolidation.     We stop trying to abandon the lower self, and finally start integrating it with our higher nature, which facilitates more stable and sustained elevated consciousness.

4) One more big event..Numinous is a sponsor for an event with author, Michael Wayne on June 20.  If you are interested in how prominent new thought leaders are using the understandings promoted through Numinous and the Albany Peace Project to positively transform society, you will be definitely be interested in this free event.    I am excited that I have been asked to interview Michael Wayne.  Not only is he a pioneer in consciousness, but  his “Interviews With The Leading Edge Series”  has been helping to spread the ideas of how new thought-systems that promote the dignity and creativity of all people is being utilized to help solve our complex societal problems.

The event will be Sat. evening June 20 at 7:30pm, the Saratoga Integrative Medicine Education Network/SIMEN, in it is being offered in conjunction with the Healing Springs Journal.

The event is called Interviews with the Leading Edge: A Live and Free Event!  It will take place at the Dee Sarno Theater at the Saratoga Arts Center, 320 Broadway in Saratoga Springs.

1.14.17 – Bethany Gonyea – Collective Emotion and “Global Coherence”

1.14.17 – Bethany Gonyea – Collective Emotion and “Global Coherence”

Please consider donating if these meditations are helpful to you.  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 otherwise they don’t recognize the PO box) at PO Box 1322, Clifton Park, NY 12065.

Interestingly, I am finding myself having trouble finding words to write, because  I am overwhelmed with unspeakable gratitude.

Thanks to everyone for participating in Albany Peace Project 2017.  We asked for people to step up and become “heroes” this year, and definitely more people responded!!   Whether or not we reached the tipping point is yet to be evaluated, however, approximately 125-150 more people participated each day this year!    Thank you so much for hearing the call to lift the world and doing your part to facilitate Global Coherence.

As you can learn from the Institute of Heartmath’s video,  gobal coherence is a very real possibility and phenomenon, and you have all heard your Hero’s call to catalyze a quickening of it.  Please inspire your friends and family to do the same.  I want to acknowledge you for taking personal responsibility to better your own life and others.  As you continue to ‘vote with your heart’ I can tell you from personal experience, you will only continue to reap more benefits of of this historic work.  I can also vouch that the benefits you reap get better as well!

The Albany Peace Project is evolving into the Resonant Peaceful Cities Project, and I am working toward having the peaceful cities “cross pollinate.”  Our initial peaceful cities are Schenectady, Boston, Phoenix, Mexico City and possibly Dallas and Chicago.  These cities have spontaneously emerged with only a brief one minute video tagged on at the end of a webinar last August with Dr. Joe,  and we are still working hard to catch up with demand.  I am confident that when we do officially launch the Resonant Peaceful Cities Project and “open for business” we will be flooded with inquiries.

At least initially, we are not charging any fees to these cities, and we are funding meeting these additional demands  through Numinous.  I am starting my sixth year of still working only as a volunteer for Numinous.    I strongly urge you to attend Numinous events or offer a small monthly donation to help us fund this rapid expansion. You can make a small recurring donation at this link: albanypeaceproject.com/donate/

This is a unique opportunity where common ordinary citizens can “vote” with their heart and have their intentions recorded and documented!!  This documentation of coherence research is going to be what is required to mitigate the current tide of relentless meaningless human suffering.  We need your help to provide the  documentation that this work works!  Evidence based” tools are what is required to garner support, so lets continue to raise awareness and add to the current research as an independent organization to duplicate other research and give the world something to talk about….or should I say, something positive to talk about!

You have great power to positively influence history.  I hope you start with participating in the Phoenix Peach Project launching this summer.

Volunteers are desperately needed.  We will have our first volunteer meeting in mid March to begin planning for Albany Peace Project 2018.  Please look for more information on that soon.

Thanks to Kirk Harbinger again for introducing us to the term, common coherence!  Let’s make coherence a household word.

We hope to have a grand opening for the Resonant Peaceful Cities Project that will be streamed among the cities, but until then check out our new website( still under construction) at:  www.PeacefulCities.org

PLEASE NOTE: Albany Peace Project 2017 will be ending this Sunday.

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.

If you were to undergo a metamorphosis in 10 months, who would you want to become?

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 13, 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!

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.

Quaker Friends Meeting House
727 Madison Ave, Albany, NY 12208
June 11 – 9:00 AM-12:00 PM

Are you interested in working with helping to reduce youth violence?  

This meeting will introduce people to a new program that Numinous is starting called, Mindfulness As A Solution to Violence.  A large component of this program will be Alternatives to Violence practices.  This class will be taught by Bernard Shuman who  holds a Gold Certificate for teaching and facilitating Alternatives to Violence, the highest certification possible and has spent thousands over 8,000 hours volunteering his time to support others in turning away from crime, hatred, helplessness, and hopelessness, while urging them to turn toward faith, emotional healing, and offering assistance to others.  During his 24 year tenure in the NYS Department of Corrections, Mr. Shuman’s contributions were invaluable in creating the environment in  Otisville Correctional Facility as the “Otisville Peace Academy.”

AVP Workshops are intensive learning experience which teaches interpersonal conflict resolution skills through a series of step-by-step processes.  These experiences in small groups and one-to-one interactions build a sense of community and trust through exercises focusing on:  The Advance AVP workshop focuses on the underlying causes of violence, both in ourselves and in the world we live in.  It is designed to give participants opportunities to rebuild community, review in depth the concept of Transforming Power and proceed to set individual and group goals for the focus of the remainder of the workshop

This meeting will be offer some practical Alternatives To Violence Skills, and will facilitate a group discussion for expanding efforts in Albany, NY.  If you have any interest in this subject, please attend.  The goal of Mindfulness As A Solution To Violence is that we start a wave of peace within young people in the Albany area…As Bernard says, possibly starting the Albany Peace Academy.

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

Overcoming Chronic Pain by Tending to Mind, Body and Spirit
Cindly Perlin, LMSW, Author, The Truth About Chronic Pain Treatments: The Best and Worst Strategies for Becoming Pain Free
Wednesday June 22 at 7:00 PM
Unity Church of Albany

The presenter, Cindy Perlin, is a licensed clinical social worker, certified biofeedback practitioner, chronic pain survivor and author of The Truth About Chronic Pain Treatments: The Best and Worst Strategies for Becoming Pain Free. Cindy will discuss the dangers of most conventional pain treatments and how to develop a safe, effective treatment plan that incorporates body-based, mind-based and spirituality-based approaches to maximize your healing potential.

“Doctors are trained to treat the result and not the cause. Cindy Perlin’s book reveals important and significant information about the many effective treatments for pain other than a pill prescribed by your doctor. 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.”
– Bernie Siegel, MD, Author of The Art of Healing and Love, Medicine & Miracles

The Jaguar Path: the Benefits of  Shamanic Skills in Every Day Life – Part 2
Stable Gate Winery
Sunday June 26 from 10-12:30
10 Linda Way
Castleton-on-Hudson, NY
info@stablegatewinery.com
www.stablegatewinery.com

For this event, we are so blessed to be able to learn shamanic skills outdoors through the invitation of Val Feldman, owner operator of Stable Gate Winery, only 15 minutes from 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.

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!

Kirk Harbinger has been an incredible gift to the Albany Peace Project.  A few years ago he cared enough to ask me hard questions about the project.  After he finished questioning me, he suggested that I be interviewed for the second annual peace project, because I had not been interviewed that first year.   He made me realize that the broader brush strokes of the research of the Albany Peace Project were not being discussed because I was only interviewing other leaders  about their work.

In this interview, I completely appreciate his willingness to dive into this work with such sincerity, that he asks me more tough questions.  Thanks, Kirk!

Coherence for a Cause: A Midwinter’s Night Benefit:
Saturday Evening February 4.  Doors open from 6-10
To celebrate the 4th Year of the Albany Peace Project, our Peace Project Team has been working diligently for months to bring to you some of the best food and entertainment in the Capital Region! With every ticket purchased, a meal will be donated to a family in need, which is true to not only our mission, but to the larger cause of the evening: Peace. How are we to expect people that suffer from stress, hunger, poverty, and malnourishment to meditate? At the end of the day we must get off our meditation cushions, carry that frequency forward, and help those in need. We at the Albany Peace Project are invested in all of our neighborhoods, and it is our pleasure to showcase several different causes that are imperative to creating a more coherent community!

Saturday February 11 2:00-4:30 PM
Spirit Tree Connections

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.

If you were to undergo a metamorphosis in 10 months, who would you want to become?

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.
