In this experiential presentation we will learn how to soothe the body, calm the heart, quiet the mind and, discover a blissful feeling of quantum coherence in our consciousness. Participants will be invited to discover the somatic art/science of shifting the assemblage point of their autonomic nervous system, awakening a new consciousness of their bodily being and the world they perceive. It is a shift from neural-mental analytical perception, to a ‘noiseless’ whole-body felt sense - intuitive flow-state of original knowing and playfulness. There will be a discussion about the adaptive wisdom of the body, oxytocin-the “love molecule” or “affiliative neuropeptide, the ventral vagal (smart) nerve and, the keys to their optimal self-regulation.Date/TimeLocationTown Hall Meeting Room

Unconditional Love is what most of us have been searching for all of our lives. For most, woefully lacking in our childhood when we needed it the most, we carry that hunger with us. It manifests itself in judgment of others and ourselves, frustration, anger, running from commitments or adventures, trying to please others to get their love, and a myriad of other not-so-happy behaviors. Learn about how to fill the void that keeps us in the cycle of unproductive behaviors that stand in the way of fulfilling relationship, peace, and happiness.Date/TimeLocationTown Hall Meeting Room

Cacao awakens and stills the mind and stimulates the energetic channels of the light body, while generating a sense of integrated presence and well-being. It activates the cardiovascular system, opening the heart center, and increasing the flow of blood and nourishment to the brain and throughout the entire body, oxygenating every cell.
The Primordial Breath-work is a cathartic practice that works up and down the energy centers of the subtle body, releasing imprints of dis-ease and clearing blockages of stagnant energy at every level. This reprograms and unfurls the conditioned imprints and accumulated patterns of tension from our difficult life-experience at the level of cellular memory.
