Keynote: Conscious Evolution: The Journey from self to Self
Monday, March 31 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm
Within each of us there are three fundamental levels of soul power. Most of us use only two, even when we have achieved the highest diplomas through conventional secular and religious education. The third, which is essential to true wisdom, remains more or less dormant. This is a discussion of how that third potential awakens, the power it bestows, and the wisdom path we can then begin to live.
Goal: To gain inspiration and practical tools for living in greater peace.
• Embody presence by understanding how we pollute our own energy,
• Realize the nature of the investigative mind and how it can be strengthened, and
• Make your mind an ally in freeing you from needless suffering.
Workshop: The Mandala Approach: A Powerful Tool for Healing and Self-Knowledge and Healing
Monday, March 31 - 3:30pm to 5:00pm
Mandalas are symbolic tools for understanding and reconciling the dualistic nature of mind. In this experiential workshop, with demonstrations using audience volunteers, Richard teaches his Mandala of Being. He shows how we lose connection to our true selves by constantly fleeing the Now into thoughts that create our psychological world of past, future, subject (me), object (you). This lack of presence results in predictable emotional suffering: fearfulness, anger, guilt, depressiveness, and grandiosity. Learning to return to the Now invites our higher emotional functions, such as gratitude, compassion, forgiveness and humility to arise spontaneously.
Goal: To effectively adapt to change and challenges in daily life.
• Acquire a highly effective practice for deconstructing the mechanisms of repeated emotional suffering,
• Learn to face very difficult feelings through the power of focused, gentle attention, and
• Adapt more easefully to the stress of change by cultivating focused yet spacious awareness and a relaxed yet poised quality of embodiment.
