Speaking With Nature: Sandra Ingerman

02-27-17    Speaking With Nature: Sandra Ingerman

Nature and the Earth are conscious. They speak to us through our dreams, intuition, and deep longings. By opening our minds, hearts, and senses we can consciously awaken to the magic of the wild, the rhythms of nature, and the profound feminine wisdom of the Earth. We can connect with nature spirits who have deep compassion and love for us, offering their guidance and support as we each make our journey through life.

Sandra Ingerman, MA, is an award winning author of ten books, including Soul Retrieval: Mending the Fragmented Self, Medicine for the Earth: How to Heal Personal and Environmental Toxins, Walking in Light: The Everyday Empowerment of Shamanic Life and Speaking with Nature (co-authored with Llyn Roberts). She is the presenter of seven audio programs produced by Sounds True, and she is the creator of the Transmutation App. Sandra is a world renowned teacher of shamanism and has been teaching for more than 30 years. She has taught workshops internationally on shamanic journeying, healing, and reversing environmental pollution using spiritual methods. Sandra is recognized for bridging ancient cross-cultural healing methods into our modern culture addressing the needs of our times. www.sandraingerman.com

The Stress Solution: Dr. Arthur Ciaramicoli

02-20-17    The Stress Solution: Dr. Arthur Ciaramicoli

Contemporary life has come to include 1. working too much, 2. sleeping too little, and 3. feeling disconnected from partners and family (largely because of 1 and 2.) Our health and relationships suffer (as does our work.) As author Ciaramicoli shows, this state of affairs can be changed — while maintaining high performance success. His simple and realistic, yet powerful and profound techniques show readers how to use empathy to perceive accurately, use CBT to correct distorted thinking, and trigger our own neurochemistry to produce calm, focused energy. He developed this unique, three-pronged approach over 35 years working with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, and addictions. Over and over again, he has helped sufferers overcome old hurts and combat performance anxiety, fears, and hypervigiliance. Ciaramicoli’s is a truly pioneering approach, and one that offers new promise to readers facing a variety of stress-based concerns.

Arthur P. Ciaramicoli, Ed.D., Ph.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist who has been treating clients for more than 30 years. He is a member of the American Psychological Association and the Massachusetts Psycho­logical Association. Dr. Ciaramicoli is the author of The Curse of the Capable: The Hidden Challenges to a Balanced, Healthy, High Achieving Life (Wiley, 2010), Per­formance Addiction: The Dangerous New Syndrome and How to Stop It from Ruining Your Life (Wiley 2004) and The Power of Empathy: A Practical Guide to Creating Intimacy, Self-Understanding, and Lasting Love (Dutton 2000), which is now published in 7 languages. His first book, Treatment of Abuse and Addiction, A Holistic Approach (Jason Aronson, 1997) was selected as Book of the Month by The Psychotherapy Book News. He is also the coauthor of Beyond the Influence: Understanding and Defeating Alcoholism (Bantam 2000).

02-13-17    JP Sears: Being Ultra-Spiritual

Perhaps our ability to laugh at ourselves and not take ourselves too seriously is what increases our spiritual growth. JP Sears is going to show you how to be Ultra Spiritual but first you have to know that being Ultra Spiritual has nothing to do with actually being spiritual.

JP is an emotional healing coach, international teacher, world traveler, and curious student of life. His work is intended to empower people to empower themselves to live more meaningful lives. JP leads retreats around the world on different healing and personal empowerment themes for like minded and like hearted people to come together and learn, grow, and heal. JP also makes videos, very active on my YouTube channel, to help people help themselves. www.awakenwithjp.com

Sister Giant – Marianne Williamson

02-06-17    Sister Giant – Marianne Williamson

In the words of Mahatma Gandhi, “Politics should be sacred.” Sacred doesn’t necessarily mean religious – it means stemming from the deepest part of ourselves. The search for authenticity, for our deep humanity, should not stop at the door to politics. If anything, it should extend deeply into realms that affect so powerfully the existence of earth’s billions of inhabitants. From how we treat the environment to how we treat each other, our political choices are significant indicators of our moral values and spiritual convictions. At this year’s SISTER GIANT, Bernie Sanders will give the keynote address. Marianne Williamson partners with Derrick Harkins, Senior Vice-President at Union Theological Seminary to SISTER GIANT in Washington DC, at the Marriott Hotel in Arlington, Va. From Feb. 2-4, 2017. The Conference will bring together an illuminating mix of thinkers, gathering to consider the state of our country on both spiritual and political levels. www.sistergiant.com

Marianne Williamson is an internationally acclaimed spiritual author and lecturer. Marianne has been a popular guest on television programs such as Oprah, Larry King Live, Good Morning America, Charlie Rose & Bill Maher. Seven of her twelve published books have been New York Times Best Sellers. Four of these have been #1. The mega best seller A Return to Love is considered a must-read of The New Spirituality. A paragraph from that book, beginning “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure…” is considered an anthem for a contemporary generation of seekers. www.marianne.com
