1.17.15 Meditation: Michael Wayne, Author, Quantum-Integral Medicine

Welcome to the weekend!
I get fired up when I think about what Dr. Michael Wayne is discussing in this interview.  He talks about starting a revolution!!

Not the blood, guts, and gore kind of revolution, but the kind of revolution that inspires people to access the highest and best within themselves.

Can you imagine the amazing results of that kind of revolution?

I believe that one of the worst of human tragedies is not fostering human potential, because within all of us is massive power to uplift and positively transform the world around us.

Dr. Wayne is a revolutionary, someone who dares to dream of a better world, and he interviews fellow revolutionary travelers through his interview series, Interviews From The Leading Edge.

Just participating in the Albany Peace Project makes you a quantum revolutionary, because you are willing to contemplate the outcome of how society would gracefully transform itself if meditation and peaceful intentions were accepted as daily ordinary practice in the city of Albany, through the school systems, law enforcement and business communities…so you already are a revolutionary!  Can you feel your energy revving?

The Albany Peace Project team is working diligently toward those efforts.   A peaceful revolution is already underway..and you are a big part of it!  THANK YOU!!

Michael Wayne, Ph.D., L.Ac., is the author of the groundbreaking book, Quantum-Integral Medicine: Towards a New Science of Healing and Human Potential, and The Low Density Lifestyle. He also has written a novel, The Knuckleball From Hell. His new book, The Quantum Revolution, is coming out in later 2013.

He is the Founder and Director of The  Center for Quantum Revolution. Dr. Wayne has over 25 years experience in the field of Chinese Medicine, and has a private practice as a practitioner of Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, and Integrative Medicine. His Ph.D. is in the field of Quantum-Integral Medicine—a field he has pioneered—which is about the science of emerging properties, and how it relates to the innate healing system and human potential.

Dr. Wayne’s work has been publicly praised by Marianne Williamson and Dr. Larry Dossey; Marianne Williamson said of him, “Michael Wayne has brought us closer to the understanding we need in order to heal ourselves, each other and the world.”  And Larry Dossey said, “A revolution in medicine is taking place, and no one sees this more clearly than Dr. Michael Wayne.”

His work has received national media attention by the likes of Alternative Medicine, the New York Post, Hay House Radio, Positive Health, Wellbeing Journal, Martha Stewart’s Whole Living and Acupuncture Today.

In addition to his writing, Dr. Wayne is the Director of the Center for Quantum-Integral Medicine, and in that capacity gives workshops and speaks to groups around the country.  He is also the founder of the IdeaLab, a thinktank aimed at developing creative solutions to issues in medicine, science and technology, business and the arts.

You can also visit Dr. Wayne’s affiliate website, The Low Density Lifestyle, where you will find various articles on health and well-being, along with interviews and radio broadcasts with Dr. Wayne.

Come on…You know you want to sing it!

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.

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.”

We invite you to share sacred space, clear and recharge your energy field, strengthen your balance and love in these challenging times, and offer your heartfelt gratitude for the abundance you have, or would like to have, in your life.  Through ceremony we will cultivate gratitude for our provision and offer a thank you and remind our selves what is most important in life by honoring and appreciating our abundance, intimate relationships, jobs, home, family, health, dreams and plans. The Aini despachio ceremony brings balance to our relationship because as we connect with mother earth we regain perspective of what is real and important in life which helps us to swiftly gain focus which automatically enables us to repriorities and make choices that uphold what is most important to us!

Wednesday June 22 at 7:00 PM
Cultural Center at the Hindu Temple – NEW VENUE
450 Albany Shaker Rd, Albany, NY 12211

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!

1.17.16 Meditation: Michael Wayne, Author of the Quantum Revolution

Today you get to meet, acupuncturist, author and change agent, Michael Wayne, Phd, author of Lo-Density Lifestyle, Knuckleball From Hell, Quantum-Integral Medicine, and his latest book, Quantum Revolution: The Power to Transform.
Michael is a transformative thinker who inspires others to dream a little bigger, especially with his groundbreaking series Interviews From the Leading Edge, which offers great hope for the future in these uncertain times. Interviews from the Leading Edge is an exclusive series of discussions with people who are on the leading edge of transformational change, doing work to further the consciousness revolution, and shape the way it manifests in culture, politics and spirituality, in order to help nurture a more enlightened society.

In this interview, we talk about how we all have a version of imaginal cells within us.  Michael mentions how the transformative process within all of us seems to start similar to imaginal cells. These are the cells that actually make a butterfly from the ”cellular chaos” inside the caterpillar.

Michael will be talking about this transformative process, and what he has learned from transformational leaders, at an upcoming Numinous event to be held at the Unitarian Church in Albany, 405 Washington Avenue, on February 6 at 7:00 PM.  Unity Church Musical Director Roger Mock will also be performing at this special event, offering uplifting music.

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

Challenging Our Agreements, and How They Shape Us
Bryce Pullano, IT Specialist
Wednesday January 27 at 7:00 PM

One of the four agreements in the wildly successful book “The Four Agreements” by Don Miquel Ruiz, is “Don’t make assumptions.”

If we all took a moment to pause and consider how many assumptions we make in life, and how much these assumptions shape our destiny, we may become awestruck by their significance.   These realizations have the potential to be so profound, they may inspire us to make lasting change in our behavior, changes that can effect the entire trajectory of our lives.

In this talk, Bryce Pullano will ask us to challenge our most basic social contracts, and examine how much we assume things that simply are not be true at all.  He will help us expose these flimsy mirages for what they are, which can help us find the truth that we need to experience real-world growth. These non-truths are best eliminated, so that we can proceed confidently in life with clear unwavering vision that sustains us in times of darkness.  Come to this talk ready to challenge all areas of your life, and to mine new insights for positive change.

Spiritual Conversations For Men
Facilitated by Glenn Hogue & Tim Moon, MA – CASAC
Wednesday February 3 at 7:00 PM

Most spiritual programs are predominantly attended by women, which often causes women’s issues to be the focus of such programming.  However, at NUMINOUS, we wanted to provide new programs that would specifically support Men’s spiritual discoveries as they do the significant work of pioneering how to blend ancient spiritual teachings with contemporary culture’s expectations of masculinity.

This is critically important work, as we seem to be in a time in history when all sorts of established paradigms are falling.   The rugged individualism of the late 20th century is being challenged on all levels, especially in relationships. The traditional roles between male and female are also being blurred as well.

How do we maintain the integrity of our yang (masculine) energy while assimilating the gentler aspects of spirituality and still be effective in this world?   How do we learn how to connect, while maintaining our individual authenticity and truth?   Many of us have learned that we don’t need to do life alone, but we are unsure of how to skillfully include input from Spirit, women, and other men, without loosing connection with ourselves.

Learning how to skillfully partner, listen, and still assert our truth seems to be a huge piece of the mission of our generation of men. These Spiritual Conversations For Men will give us an opportunity to gain answers to the some of the most distracting questions of our lives.  In a quiet environment, we can safely discuss what matters to us most, and obtain invaluable insights from other men who have grappled with the same questions.  Through this exchange, we learn that we don’t have to do “life alone.”  Also, we learn how good it feels to be supported and to provide the same meaningful support for others.   These discussions offer us clarity and direction as we learn to connect, and yet still hold individual balance.

We are extremely fortunate to have Tim Moon, Counselor, and Fo Castle Owner/Operator Glenn Hogue facilitate these discussions.  These two have over 55 years of combined spiritual understandings to chart this prosperous territory.
