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.

Infusing Native American Wisdom in Our Daily Lives
with Oasis founder Roberrt Roskind author of The Beauty Path, A Native American Journey Into One Love

Until they were invaded by European conquerors, all Native American societies were based on three truths – we are all One with our Creator, one with our brothers and sisters, and one with the Earth. From this mindset they created societies that brought out the best in humanity. They were co-operative and love-based. The mindset of the conquerors – a mindset that now dominates the planet – is the opposite and based on three lies – we are separate from our Creator, from all our brothers and sisters and from the Earth. This world perspective brings out the worst in us as leads to the fractured world we have been sent here to heal through our love. As we heal this misconception within our own minds and hearts, our lives enter a mystical stream of energy that is the inheritance of every human – lovingly given to us by the Great Spirit.

ME REDWOODSRobert Roskind is the author of twelve books including Rasta Heart: A Journey into One Love, The Beauty Path: A Native American Journey into One Love, The Gathering of the Healers, In the Spirit of Marriage and In the Spirit of Business. He is also the producer of a record-breaking PBS series and the organizer of over 200 One Love Events in the U.S. and Jamaica. He has worked closely with Hopi, Havasupai and Mayan Elders.

MANIFESTING YOUR HEART’S DESIRE
with Kezia Renee Lechner
Reiki Master and Intuitive Life Coach

In this time of planetary change, many of us are going through our own time of change and transformation . We are letting go of places we live, careers, relationships, letting go of habitual patterns and ingrained beliefs that no longer serve us.But sometimes we feel unclear and fearful about moving forward. We’re not sure of what it is we want, what to envision and how best to bring it forth into this physical reality. We simply know we want more. Join me for an experiential evening of hands-on Intuitive Life Coaching and Energy Healing work.

If the group is small, I will provide short individual sessions for each person. If the group is large, I will work with as many people as I’m able. Fulfilling external change always involves making internal shifts and spring is an opportune time for doing this. Our time together will help you gain clarity about where you are now, where you would like to go, and action steps you might take to create more of what you desire.

Kezia Renee Lechner recently moved to this area from Philadelphia. She offers private sessions and hosts a monthly, sliding scale Healing Clinic in Chapel Hill.

Drawn to the Healing Arts, she became a Reiki Master in 1999, explored a number of other healing modalities and soon after established her own practice. Over the years, as her sensitivity to energy and her intuitive abilities grew, she began to combine Intuitive Life Coaching with Reiki/Energy Healing, a blend she finds highly powerful and effective in helping clients move forward in their lives.

Pleasure as a pathway to feminine radiance 

with Nadia Setzer

Where does pleasure rank on your to-do list? Are you really good at taking care of everyone else, but tend to put your own desires and needs last? Do you often feel exhausted, turned-off, and depleted at the end of the day? If so, then I hope you’ll join me for this mini-workshop on the importance of pleasure in a woman’s life! Together, we will: Discover why pleasure is such an essential ingredient to a woman’s radiance and magnetism. Begin to honor and prioritize your relationship to your own pleasure. Come up with specific ways (individualized to you!) to bring pleasure into your daily life. When a woman is turned on to her pleasure, she glows. She becomes magnetic. She radiates joy, love, and confidence. A woman like that can change the world. I want us all to become that woman. Please bring a pen and your favorite journal!

Nadia Setzer is passionate about reconnecting women to their pleasure, body wisdom, and sensuality as pathways to their feminine radiance. She believes that every woman deserves to live a life bursting with pleasure, joy, and abundance. Through specific practices and daily rituals, she helps women reignite their inner-strength, spiciness, and feminine wisdom so that they can live a more nourishing and turned-on life.

Reinventing Ourselves: The Next Blessed Chapter
with Robert Roskind

In today’s fast changing environments we are being called on to constantly learn and grow and to often go through life-changing events that cause us to have to reinvent ourselves. Sometimes these events are pleasurable like a spiritual awakening, the birth of a child, meeting a mate, beginning your life work. Other times they are painful involving a physical, financial, spiritual, or relationship “crisis.” In either case, these are the milestone markers on our path – in fact they are our path – and they are all for our highest good. As a veteran of countless, reinventions, Robert will discuss how to navigate these life changes with calm and clarity – no matter how intense they might appear.

Robert Roskind is the author of twelve books including Rasta Heart: A Journey into One Love, The Beauty Path: A Native American Journey into One Love, The Gathering of the Healers, In the Spirit of Marriage and In the Spirit of Business. He is also the producer of a record-breaking PBS series and the organizer of over 200 One Love Events in the U.S. and Jamaica. He lives in Carrboro and operates the Oasis.

Living an Inspired & Mystical Life


with Oasis founder Robert Roskind, author of A Guide for an Awakening Planet


It so easy to lapse into leading a mundane life full of all the details modern life seems to demand of us. However, living an ispired life is simple (but simple is not always easy). Just use unconditional love for all as your homing beacon. In essence, just claim your Divinely-given, and pre-incarnated acceptance of, your assignment as a teacher of love. Then determine your greatest gifts (music, writing, child-rearing, counseling, painting, caring for the elderly, etc.) and use these to most effectively undertake your assignment.

Sound, Breath and Meditation Workshop
With Dante Baker, 200 Hour RYT

Experience sounds from the Tibetan and modern crystal bowl during the breathing exercises and meditation to re-harmonize the entire body. Allow the sound vibrations to soothe the mind, clear any blockages within the body and guide you into the present moment.

All levels of practitioners are welcome to deepen their understanding, heighten their awareness and strengthen application of meditation and breathing exercises while using Tibetan Singing and Modern Singing Bowls. Discover how controlled breathing not only keeps the mind and body functioning optimally, but it will also lower blood pressure, promote a calm and relaxing mind-set and help students de-stress.

Different Meditation techniques can relax the body while keeping the mind singularly focused. When this is done regularly, a deep sense of inner peace, mental clarity and tranquility is cultivated with the practitioner.

Throughout history many ancient civilizations and cultures have used crystals and stones for a numerous purposes such as healing, meditating, activating and strengthening psychic abilities. Within the last century, modern society has discovered, and continues to discover, the powerful and healing effects the singing bowls can produce with the backing of science. The quality of the materials and the structure of these bowls are highly important as these two foundations are what produce the harmonic sounds; while Tibetan bowls are made of brass and copper, crystal bowls are formed from mostly pure crushed quartz and heated in high boiling temperature in a centrifugal shape. The sounds that are created when the bowls are struck with a mallet, release a powerful and potent sound vibration, with the larger bowls creating a deeper and longer reverberation due to the size and amount of crystal used. Each bowl is tested with digital technology to identify its unique sound, with each sound corresponding to a particular note, similar to notes of a piano.

Dante Baker has been a native to the Washington DC area his entire life, growing up in Reston, VA. Since his childhood years, Dante has always had a fascination with the human anatomy and all of its abilities to heal, move, and process. This interest led Dante to studying and receiving certifications through AFAA and NASM in 2007. As he pursued personal training he worked with wide a range of clients such as over-weight clients, young athletes and elderly adults. As he gained more experience and confidence in his teaching he extended his expertise to larger classes such as boot camp, athletic conditioning, kids physical education, kickboxing and body pump.

Dante personally trains and sees private clients for massage, physical exercise and Reiki, teaches meditation, yoga, qi gong classes, performs crystal and Tibetan Sound Concerts. His personal philosophy is that the body has an innate wisdom within itself and the tools and services he provides, allows the body to perform the healing that it knows how to do.
