Unlock Your Natural Ability To Heal And Revitalize Your Health

Do you know that the power to heal is within YOU?

While traditional western medicine focuses on diagnosing symptoms and treating you from the outside, energy medicine unlocks your life force to heal you from the inside — and addresses the root causes of illness.

You can tap into this inner resource to treat ailments, increase vitality and prevent disease — through clearing and balancing meridians, applying Indigenous medicine practices, utilizing healing touch and so many more modalities.

In fact, western medicine and energy medicine pair beautifully to revitalize your overall health physically, emotionally, mentally… even spiritually!

With a few simple techniques, daily practices and powerful treatments from skilled practitioners — the power to heal is at your fingertips.

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.

This fascinating workshop will give you greater insight into yogic meditation traditions, which differ from the more well-known Buddhist traditions.

In this one-hour free event with Richard, you’ll:
• Receive the latest neuroscience research on what works and why

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.

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.

You’ll need to RSVP for your space here.

Important herbs and essential oils that support deep sleep and peaceful rest
Simple culinary herbs that provide high levels of natural antioxidants and strong immune support

David unifies wisdom from many streams of healing practices into a coherent understanding that will show you how to relate more deeply with the botanical world for rejuvenation, awakening and health.

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



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

The Self Reliance Summit 2016 Day 8th

This is final day of The Self Reliance Summit 2016. Jason Matyasis first person to be interviewed by John Crane.

He is the founder of a family business with his children called Seeds for Generations that provides heirloom garden seeds and inspiration for gardening as a family.


Jason discussion includes Understanding the Modern Grid and the how to Reduce Dependence on it. The modern system – economy, government, and culture – has developed into a massive control grid that seeks to dominate almost every aspect of your life. It does this first and foremost through capturing your mind – teaching you how to think – so that you are unable to contemplate a life outside of the constraints that the system has set for you. This is the ultimate form of slavery – slavery over the mind. But it is one that is agreed to by its subjects, even if out of ignorance. To seek true freedom requires opening your eyes and seeing reality for what it truly is, breaking out of the boxes that have developed in your mind, and evaluating how you can work around the constraints that have been set for the progress and prosperity of you and your family. It is essential that you understand how our current system works so you can properly assess your own situation and make wise decisions about how to prepare for the future. Join us for a challenging and eye-opening presentation that is sure to make you re-think your paradigm.

Rachel Morrison is the last interviewee. Rachel specializes in Internal and Global Strategies with an emphasis in spirituality, wellness and sustainability education. She studied International Business and Marketing, and has practiced Integrated Wellness Principles most of her life. Rachel is a speaker,trainer and developer of “programs of change” with Sunrise Ranch and where thought leaders from around the world, who are dedicated to the awareness and evolution of consciousness by focusing on global development through the Self, Thriving Community and Unified Efforts go.
