To love yourself, you must know yourself. To love one another, you must know one another. Assumptions, distractions, fears, expectations, and a personal sense of unworthiness obscure these kernels of truth. You yearn for connection with others but your mind gets in the way, constantly spinning judgments about how you are fundamentally alienated from one another. As William James wisely explained, “Our view of the world is truly shaped by what we decide to hear.”
You can train yourself to change, to hear more of what is out there—and to listen less to limiting and often self-condemning thoughts along the way. Deepen your love in a profound yet personal and meaningful way that brings you happiness, joy, contentment, and peace.
Love is ordinarily defined as “intense affection,” “romance,” “adoration,” “strong attachment,” and “personal attraction.” Through talks, guided meditations, and question and answer sessions, Salzberg, bestselling author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness leads you with humor and gentleness into states that open these limited definitions of love at their seams. Redefine and explore a world of greater possibility. Experience love in a more essential way without the stale narratives perpetuated by popular culture.
Discover what holds you back from connecting to yourself, to your core emotional needs—as well as to one another and to your individual and shared experiences alike. Find out what keeps you from realizing your essential need for real love.
Commonly, love is thought of only as the pursuit of pleasure. It is certainly portrayed that way in movies, television shows, glossy magazines, and pop music. But love can be appreciated and experienced as a more sustaining and sustainable kind of happiness.
Distinguish your skillful habits toward awareness and a sense of deep connection with yourself and others from your unskillful habits that reinforce a sense of separation. Mindfulness allows you to reach into your heart, open it, and take risks by breaking free of the limits and expectations of love. Create a spacious balance of mind that allows you a more direct, experiential relationship with love.
With core mindfulness and lovingkindness techniques, and other meditation exercises, Salzberg will guide you through the process of seeing through layers of habit—whether rooted in fear, self-condemnation, or other mental conditioning—to find a truer meaning of love for yourself, loved ones, and for those you don’t know but with whom you share this planet; for all beings everywhere. Suitable for both new and experienced meditators.
The Saturday night optional program is not workshop material and Salzberg will do a Q & A session.
Increase your personal effectiveness at healing. Adopt empowering ideas that can help you create those true, leap-frogging, quantum-jumping, heart-popping wonders called miracles. Awaken four life changing pathways, called the elemental, power, mystical, and divine pathways, an entirely fresh design for holistic healing. This approach moves away from fixing parts to assuring wholeness; from working hard at healing to making simple changes that deliver healing. In the four pathways, there are four layers, planes, or realities of human existence. These different realities add up to a greater reality, while independently offering equally valid ways to make and create change. While each pathway has its own set of rules, principles, and systems, all of them can create the so-called miraculous.
The beauty of the four pathways is that they all interact. If you make a modification on one pathway, you will see exponential change in that and all other pathways, simultaneously. For instance, you might work one of the four pathways to forgive your parents for cruelties they did to you when you were young. As soon as you alter your energy on this pathway, all other three pathways shift and modulate. Suddenly, other areas of your life miraculously change. Your arthritis clears up. Your boss gives you a raise. You start sleeping better at night. You hear from a long-lost friend. Your spiritual gifts open up; you begin to receive visions at night that inform you of things to come the next day.
Join Dale, bestselling author, who has spent 25 years collecting, applying, and teaching the keys to these powerful pathways. This highly interactive, experiential retreat includes demonstrations, guided meditations, and most importantly—easy-to-use, simple hands-on techniques and exchanges, to assure you bring your powers to life on the four pathways. Dale’s delightfully engaging teaching style will ensure you experience these beautiful and bold four pathways to:
- Use Light and sound to transform your emotions, microbes, and physical issues.
- Spot spiritual forces within you and shift them. There are authoritative energetic forces that can create or destroy; sometimes you can not clear a problem or open to a desire because you are attached to the wrong force.
- Set seals, special lens which are on your chakras or energy centers that enable instant guidance and power if they are set correctly. Experience this for yourself and others.
- Connect to three forms of kundalini or vital energy. Use each and be assured of safe access to spiritual, mental, and physical support.
- Access spiritual gifts within you using the celestial wishing tree which once activated properly, unbolts the door to your manifesting abilities.
- Obtain guidance and grasp healing energy from various realms shadow walking like shamans who use this secret skill.
- Channel the Divine as an instrument for the highest good with divine prayers that enable you to stream the powers of grace and uplift you to your spiritual purpose.
The current holistic model would divide you into subcategories to solve a problem. You have not forgiven your parents for mistreating you. That is an emotional issue. Sure, emotions impact the physical body, but you need to work on this issue solely as an emotional one or it won’t go away. You have a broken feeling and it needs to be fixed. In the four pathways approach, you are already considered whole. There is a solid, viable reason that you are holding onto unforgiveness. The emotions involved are expressed throughout all four pathways of the Greater Reality and total your current reality. Shift your experience of any issue on any of the four pathways and your entire reality will shift. Then you can make exponential change. Be ready to create your own miracles.
For the Saturday night optional program, that is not workshop material, Dale will lead Angelic Beings Standing By. There are a dozen different angelic groups, each standing ready to provide assistance in creating joy, financial abundance, ease, healing, relational connection, and more. Dale will share about the specialities of these special groups and conduct guided meditations to link you to those best suited to help you.
