Meditation Workshop with Tom Spector, PhD

Tom’s Meditation Workshop is for everyone, even people who believe they could never meditate.  Learn techniques to calm your busy mind and experience your precious Inner Being.  Some healing techniques will also be presented.  Tom is internationally regarded as a refreshingly effective meditation teacher.  His teachings are clear and easy to follow.  They combine profound meaning with light humor.  Participants regularly enjoy the benefits of meditation.  Many have life-transforming experiences.


Tom began meditating in 1968 while enrolled in a highly selective, intense graduate program at Yale University.  He was struggling not only with the curriculum, but also with anger and a battered down self-esteem.  Meditation clarified issues and elucidated the paths forward.  Tom then completed the full PhD Program in record time.  He has been teaching meditation and healing since 1976. Tom’s book, Our Two Gardens: How to Cultivate Healing and CD, Meditation and Healing, will be available at a discount.


Tom lives in North Carolina with his wife, Joanna, who teaches yoga at their studio. Learn more about meditation and yoga at www.hathahouse.com.

“You Are Psychic”
FREE mini-workshop with Jeannie S. Whyte

What would you say if you could experience your own psychic and intuitive insights at-will? That’s exactly what you will do at this exciting presentation by Jeannie S. Whyte. She has taken 40 years of experience and created proven and safe techniques that jump-start your psychic skills. Through this interactive demonstration, you will learn from this amazingly talented psychic and spiritual teacher. What you will learn are experiential practices to jump-start your intuitive and psychic abilities. Intuition is your wise teacher and inner GPS. Once you switch it on naturally, you know the truth in any situation. So come out discover how your intuitive insights show up for you.

Jeannie is also a successful businesswoman and entrepreneur with over 20 years experience. She has been on her spiritual journey for 40 years. Her spiritual journey began at the age of 28 when she began hearing an insistent message, which kept asking her to find out what she came here to do. This message also propelled her into studying a diversity of religions and reading thousands of books. Her endless curiosity led her to topics ranging from metaphysics to science, to self-help and consciousness. Jeannie’s first experience with sensing other presences happened in 1979 – after many months of dedicated meditation and inner work.

She found that she could not only communicate with those in spirit but also with the realms of the Ascended Masters and other Light beings. Since that time, Jeannie has dedicated herself to building a coherent system that includes classes in intuitive development and mediumship, channeling messages from the Ascended Masters and empowering others to access their intuitive gifts. Today’s Jeannie’s classes, workshops and services offer definitive proof that she’s figured out what she came here to do! Messages form the Other Side and Q&A: For a full description of Jeannie’s workshops, classes, and other services, visit her website at: http://WhyteLightCenter.com/Services Classes, etc. are held in Raleigh and may also be accessed on-line.

Introducing Holotropic Breathwork :Safe extraordinary states work with
the potential for healing

Bob has been facilitating Holotropic Breathwork sessions since 1993 and is certified by the founding group GTT. Holotropic Breathwork is a natural, safe technique to expand awareness and access extraordinary states of consciousness. Indigenous cultures have used extraordinary states for healing throughout the ages. Reports of healing, self-discovery, inner peace, and transformation often occur with this process.

Developed by Dr. Stanislav Grof, this highly experiential process combines deep relaxation, enhanced breathing, evocative music, expressive/integrative bodywork, art, and group process. We will talk about the process and how the psyche seems to “select” the experience which evolves to teach us. We will discuss the myriad of experiences, the unlimited nature, and the benefits.

Bob graduated from UNC-CH 1971, worked in business and began to explore spirituality and consciousness in 1991. He has taught meditation, yoga, stress management and massage therapy.

His global travels provided him insights and openings to himself which he willingly shares with others. He is a licensed massage therapist, an approved provider for continuing education for massage therapists, and a certified consultant/instructor of Touch for Health. His love of nature is displayed at his retreat in Mebane, North Carolina where he lives and hosts workshops in Holotropic Breathwork. www.holoquest.org (the search for wholeness)

Movies-That-Matter/Spiritual Cinema
The Unmistaken Child

In 2001, Master Lama Konchog, one of the greatest Tibetan meditators of our times, passed away. UNMISTAKEN CHILD follows the four-year spellbinding journey of Tibetan Buddhist monk Tenzin Zopa as he travels far and wide to identify the child who is the reincarnation of his deceased master.
Assisted by astrology, signs in dreams and the whispers of villagers, Tenzin travels by helicopter, mule and foot to look for the “unmistaken child”, knowing that if he succeeds, he must also convince the boy’s parents to release their child into his care.
Visually stunning and emotionally gripping, UNMISTAKEN CHILD is the first real time documentation of the search for a reincarnated master, revealed to us through the eyes of a sincere and passionate Buddhist disciple.
