Living In Full Union Through Sacred SoundExperience Heaven On Earth
Pravada Sound Healing ~ Living In Full Union Through Sacred Sound~ Healing through sacred sound is a traditional shamanic medicine path that has been widely used by every indigenous culture in the world since the beginning of time to maintain wellness, balance, a clear connection with the nature and the spirit realms, and a full union with all of life. Pravada Sound Healing weaves the heart of this ancient practice into a new method of self-healing and empowerment that supports mindfulness, spiritual awakening, full connection with the human, nature, and spirit realms, and tremendous personal transformation in daily life. In this experiential workshop, Nina Umai Spiro, ( founder of Pravada ), teaches us to re-connect with the innate wisdom and power of our own sacred vocal sound, as it is a natural vehicle for becoming present in each moment, awakening our most authentic selves, and living in full union with all beings. While honoring every group member as a sacred teacher, we will experience the awakening and complete transformation that " full spectrum vision " ( tm ) brings, as the unique ability of our own voices leads us deeply into shamanic sound altered states. In these natural states, we are easily able to arrive fully in our bodies, learn to hear, trust and follow our own wisdom and guidance,... heal fully,...receive guidance from other realms, ...and live in complete partnership with the earth, spirits, and all our relations. When we are more fully present, we automatically return to a healthy balance with all of life, rejoin our original state of oneness, ( where we are held lovingly in balance by all beings ), and re-awaken to the beauty and guidance that always exists within and around us. In our circle, we will each learn follow the natural wisdom that calls us home to be the radiant beings we are here to be in this lifetime,...as we learn about our unique individual gifts, and receive precious healing blessings from our many relations in all forms. " Prepare to be moved when Nina Umai's fluting enters you. She gives sweet voice to the earth, the plants, your bones, sticks, and stones. Delicious and deeply nourishing." ~ Susan Weed, Wise Woman Tradition, author and herbalist. ~ "In the hands of Nina Umai Spiro the Native American flute becomes a powerful instrument of healing and contemplation.....When she plays the flute, she goes deep within, and draws the listener in with her." ~ Daniel Jarvis - flute maker, teacher, and concert performer ~

Therapeutic Guided Imagery with Jeanne Zuzel
June 7 - 12, 2015 *CE credit available $25 Great men are those who see that sprituality is stronger than any material force, that thoughts rule the world. Whatever we give our attention to, we attract. "Where thoughts go, energy flows." Therefore, the more deliberate we are in choosing our thoughts, the more we are able to focus our experiences in desired directions. Like attracts like. What preoccupies our thoughts tends to become our reality. Goal oriented creative imagery is a way of focusing one's mind to get what one wants out of life, be it health, happiness or prosprity. Most people live, whether physically, intellectually or morally, in a very small protion of their potential being. They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness, and of their soul's resources in general, much like a man who, out of his whole bodily organism, should get into a habit of using and moving only his little finger. Great emergencies and crises show us how much greater our vital resources are than we had supposed. *Healing touch is an interationally accredited program endorsed by the Holistic Nures's Association, offering continuing education contact hours for each workshop. Program Overview This course is an Introduction to Therapeutic Guided Imagery for use in the clinical setting. It offers the participant the opportunity to become familiar with and practice Imagery for: Client Relaxation Restoration Overall Well being Self care Through hands on, interactive learning, participants will be able to assist clients to gain insight, direction, and empowerment, and to take an active role in their healing and growth process.

First Steps Into Storytelling Workshop

Speak Up co-founder and 16-time Moth StorySLAM and GrandSLAM champion Matthew Dicks returns to The Mount to teach a day-long workshop on the art of storytelling. This is a workshop designed for people with little or not any previous storytelling experience and seeks to meet the goals of a wide range of participants. While many of Matthews workshop graduates have gone on to tell stories on stage for Speak Up, The Moth, and other storytelling organizations, most students take this beginner-level workshop with no desire to ever take the stage. People want to learn about storytelling for personal and professional development, to meet new people, to improve communication skills, to develop their writing ability, to challenge themselves, to finally get the attention of grandchildren and colleagues, and to try something new.

Included in this workshop will be:

  • Methods for generating ideas for stories from your life experiences (you have more stories than you realize!)
  • Games designed to generate new story ideas, develop the ability to speak extemporaneously, and apply the skills taught in the class
  • Structure and arc of an effective story
  • The manipulation of the forces of gravity in a story
  • Development of humor and suspense
  • The three lies of truthful storytelling
  • Performance techniques
  • The 17 Most Important Rules of Storytelling

In addition to the modeling of stories, direct instruction, and interactive components, participants will be invited to (but not required to) develop a story of their own that will be presented to the class for critique.
