Bring peace to your heart, your relationships & the world

When you hear the word “peace,” what comes to mind? Do you think of another era marked by flowers and peace signs? Or war-torn areas of the world that repeatedly make and break peace treaties with their neighbors?

The good news is that there’s a new (revolutionary even!) definition of peace emerging. One that’s not just about ending wars, but actually making your daily life better. It’s about starting in your heart and relationships and creating a positive ripple through your community and far beyond.


This new peace movement embraces deep spiritual practices as well as grounded, practical actions… and it’s spreading!

Innovative peace building solutions are taking hold across the world — thanks to visionaries who are engaging in global social and political movements and everyday citizens performing great acts of compassion in their homes and communities.

Some of the wisest, most inspiring leaders and passionate activists from all over the world are not only part of it, but guiding the way forward — from The Dalai Lama to Archbishop Desmond Tutu to Jody Williams to Jane Goodall… and more.

Now, you can join these esteemed thought leaders and trailblazing agents for change during Summer of Peace. During this one-of-a-kind gathering, you’ll discover the latest knowledge, science, insights and practices for peace as well as the inspiration and guidance you need to meet conflict with compassion.

This series features 50+ of the world’s leading peacebuilders — including Jane Goodall, Neale Donald Walsch, Sharon Salzberg, Ocean Robbins, Audri Scott Williams, Azim Khamisa and so many more — sharing wisdom for co-creating a new peace narrative and effective methods for putting this vision into inspired action.

PLUS — this year’s Summer of Peace will include recorded peace teachings from 5 Nobel Peace Laureates, including The Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Shirin Ebadi, Rigoberta Menchú Tum and Jody Williams.

I hope you’ll participate in this extraordinary FREE online event presented by The Shift Network.

Embracing the Bliss & Blessings of Two Brothers in Light

The Buddha and Jesus began their journeys on Earth at vastly different times, and came out of vastly different circumstances and cultural challenges.

The Secrets To A Deeper Meditation Practice

Science has unequivocally confirmed it: a consistent daily meditation practice leads to better results for body, mind and soul.
Meditation can lower your stress, enhance your can-do capacity, improve your sleep, make you mentally sharper, ease negative emotions and enhance positive ones… it can even optimize your work performance!

So the question isn’t IF you should meditate, but rather HOW. There are so many choices when it comes to choosing a practice. How are you to know which is the best one for you?

Good news! On Saturday, July 16, at 10:00am Pacific, yogic scholar and spiritual teacher Richard Miller will present a free online workshop, Deepening Your Journey of Yogic Meditation: Practices for Realizing Your True Health, Wholeness & Optimal Wellbeing.
You don’t want to miss this opportunity for Richard to support you in fine-tuning your meditation practice based on the latest brain science as well as the instructions left to us by ancient seers.

YogicMeditation_intro_rectangle

You can register for this FREE virtual workshop, here.
This fascinating workshop will give you greater insight into yogic meditation traditions, which differ from the more well-known Buddhist traditions. For example, yogic meditation is particularly effective for accessing higher states of consciousness, including the joy and wellbeing that great yogis say is our birthright.

In this one-hour free event with Richard, you’ll:
• Receive the latest neuroscience research on what works and why
• Understand why short practices done consistently can outweigh longer practices (and why doing very short practices throughout the day can be even better)
• See how to extend your meditation beyond sitting practice into something that is incorporated throughout your day
• Harvest the best from more advanced meditation practices from Mahayana, Dzogchen and Zen without having to learn highly complex protocols

It’s free to attend, but you must RSVP here.

The Shakti Summit 2016

In short Shakti Summit is about heart, sensuality & spirit
As a woman, you have access to a wellspring of boundless love, spiritual wisdom and sensual vitality.

When we draw from from this deep source, we are powerful and passionate, and our lives are filled with possibility…

However, our cultural messages, life circumstances and internal limitations can separate us from our feminine essence.

We disconnect from ourselves and those around us — even those who matter most.

During these isolating times, you might feel a significant drop in energy — losing touch with what animates and enlivens you… your vibrant light dims. You might also experience a dip in your creative self-expression, feeling depleted and uninspired.

The good news is, there’s a way to reconnect with the gifts of your natural feminine essence— a path back to a life of open-heartedness, abundant joy and ecstatic sensuality.

In a world increasingly dependent on pharmaceutical drugs for a variety of ailments and illnesses, this is a wonderful opportunity to share natural, complementary therapies in the plant kingdom. (Something indigenous cultures have been doing for centuries!)

David has spent more than 30 years researching and applying medicinal plants for healing, vitality and spiritual evolution and is one of THE world’s experts in this field.

Yoga From The Himalayas

Do you love your yoga practice, yet also feel a call to go “deeper”? Western yoga tends to put an emphasis on the poses (asanas), and many think of yoga as what happens in class. But that 90 minutes is only the start!

The physical practice of yoga is a gateway to its true purpose — “union” of all aspects of yourself so that you can live in full communion with the divine Self that is your truest nature.

On Wednesday, June 29, you can begin to tap more of the full potential of yoga when you join Anand Mehrotra for Seven Foundational Teachings of Yoga from the Himalayas: Full-spectrum Practices for a Life of Harmony, Peace & Freedom.

You can register for this FREE virtual event, here

 

AnandMehrotra_intro_rectangle

Anand was recognized as a spiritual teacher at a young age. He built an ashram on the Ganges River at the meeting point of mountain and the plain, and has dedicated his life to helping others integrate “unity consciousness” into their daily life through yoga. He is deeply rooted in the ancient tradition, yet refreshingly non-traditional in his approach, which is simple, accessible and, ultimately, transformative.

In this one-hour free event with Anand, you’ll explore key teachings such as:

Uplevel your practice from asana, which benefits only the physical, to an evolutionary process that touches every aspect of your life
Expanding your understanding of Self and the nature of Reality
Balancing between time-bound expressions and ego and the timeless state of God Consciousness

It’s free to attend, but you must RSVP here

Please join us! I can assure you that your practice on the mat will deepen as you open more and more deeply to the promise of true yoga — full union of body, mind and

But I can’t think of another one that more accurately describes my experience…”

I feel that it helped me reach a new level of spiritual development, of embodying and living Essence more fully… Thank you for a truly wonderful workshop! I am inspired by your role model of Being Essence. I want to be that too!”

“Jessica, I just want to express my complete and utter gratitude for your presence. I was teaching a class today, and just over and over again, the gift of the work that I’ve done with you was shining forth… So, thank you so much for who you are and your presence. I can only speak for it as it’s shown up in my life, but I know you’ve touched hundreds, if not thousands, in this way.”
