The Peephole Effect: Perception is Everything!
with MARYANN PATALANO

New thought, metaphysical author, Maryann Patalano delivers a powerful lecture on the power of our perceptions. This lecture is based upon her book “The Peephole Effect: Perception is Everything.” Are you stuck on a merry-go-round of unwanted experiences? The Peephole Effect explores and explains the complex connection between human perception, consciousness and our co-creation with the Universe. Our subconscious, through our perception, often rules our experience in unwanted, repeating ways by collapsing infinite potential into a finite situation, thing or experience. Maryann will discuss the spiritual principles responsible for this phenomenon and will explore ways we can change any circumstance by altering our perception. Attendees will be encouraged to perceive the infinite potential that surrounds them. Maryann delivers the positive, life-affirming message that we are co-creators with Spirit (the Universe) and can live a life of choice – now!

MARYANN PATALANO is a district president at the International New Thought Alliance, an inspirational speaker, writer and a Licensed Prayer Practitioner (RScP). She is the author of “Journal Like God” and “The Peephole Effect – Perception is Everything.” Maryann is also the host of the Facebook Live show, Power, Perception & You! She will be appearing in the new thought film “As A Man Thinketh” directed by award-winning filmmaker Jon Miller, which also features Rev. Michael Beckwith, Edwene Gaines, Rev. Sheila McKeithen and other new thought leaders.

Maryann spent most of her career in corporate America (IBM) prior to establishing her career in spirituality. She helps others who wish to make positive changes in their lives through spiritual principles. She shares her breadth of compassion, knowledge and inspiration through her writing, workshops, lectures, and sermons. Her work has appeared in Science of Mind Magazine, New Thought Magazine, Natural Awakenings and on websites throughout the country. In July 2015, she was named an Inspirational Luminary by Inspire Me Today. Through her sermons, workshops and one-on-one Spiritual Strategy Sessions she focuses on the power of affirmative prayer and helping others to realize that they are beloved co-creators with the Universe.

Master steel drummer Wilton Dubois! LIVE! FREE!!

“Where in the world can you go and have the opportunities you have here in the United States?” asks musician Wilton Dubois. From Trinidad, a country smaller than Delaware, Wilton came here looking for a better life. Dubois later played steel drums with Trinidad Tripoli, a band brought to the states by Liberace. The band opened for Liberace, played on their own under contract with Warner Brothers, and once played on The Ed Sullivan Show.

Wilton is now passionate about teaching children to make and play steel drums. He enjoys helping kids find direction in life, especially kids from single parent homes. He founded Resounding Steel with the help of Durham’s Haytai Heritage Club. Part of the band’s proceeds went to help member families with groceries and rent. Dubois is driven by his passions and notes, “You don’t get this time again. Once it’s gone, it’s gone.”

His goal is to get his program into the schools  http://resoundingsteel.org

Healing Ourselves ~ Healing the Planet meditation.
with Barbara-Lynn Freed

Before we heal the Planet we need to first heal ourselves. Come join us in creating Sacred Space with the Guardians of the Directions, (Divine Beings that all ancient and indigenous peoples worked with), to receive healing energies and messages that will enliven your spirit and help you embrace your own heart’s wisdom. After briefly sharing of our experiences we will sit in meditation bringing Light and Love to Mother Earth and All Our Relations.

Her 30-year eclectic background includes a four-year apprenticeship in Native American spirituality and healing, and independent studies in Women’s Mysteries, Archeo-Astronomy, the Mystical Branches of the World’s Major Religions, plus a cross-cultural study of ancient and indigenous people’s perception of the land, space, and time.

In 1992 she founded “Awakening the Heart!” spiritual healing practice, was ordained as an Alliance of Divine Love, interfaith Minister in 1993, and has practiced as a professional astrologer since 1980.

LIVING YOUR PURPOSE AND YOUR PASSION
with Kezia Renee Lechner

We all are unique, exceptional beings who came into this world carrying certain frequencies, embodying wonderful gifts. Yet, many of us weren’t fully supported as children and encountered the intense challenges of life in the third dimension. It takes courage and determination to move past the fear, programming and the self imposed patterns which limit us and keep us from living more authentically, living as our true selves.

Come enjoy an experiential evening of Intuitive Life Coaching and hands on healing. 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. You will leave with more clarity and knowledge about your true Soul Essence and how you might share your gifts with the world.

ENANA: Living from the I Am 

When Yeshua (Jesus) made statements such as “I Am the Way, and the Truth and the Life” or “I Am the Light of the world”, was He speaking about Himself as the only path to salvation or was He actually referring to a Presence which rests quietly within each and every one of us? Yeshua’s universal teachings come alive when understood within the cultural context in which He spoke them as we awaken to the realization that many of our modern interpretations of His teachings are often 100 percent perfectly opposite of their meaning in His native ancient Aramaic tongue.

Dale will draw together numerous written sources of Yeshua’s ancient teachings and share startling insights and profound experiential practices to help us rekindle our conscious awareness of the Presence of God within our own heart. Phrases such as “I Am the Gate” and “I Am the Bread of Life” take on an entirely fresh and awakened meaning as Dale offers us the opportunity to intimately experience what St. Francis of Assisi was referring to when he said “What you are looking for, is what is what is looking.”

Dale Allen Hoffman is a “civilian scholar”, mystic and energetic healer – ancient insight for the present moment. His work awakens the profound transformational qualities of consciously intoned ancient and indigenous sounds, tones and languages on activating states of deep Presence and sound healing. His focus is not simply on words and languages but rather on the visceral experiential core of how to consciously live a richly mystical life from the inside out.

Dale is the only soul on earth sharing a living, breathing vision of the original Aramaic Yeshua [Jesus] and Mary Magdalene teachings from the Biblical, Gnostic and Ancient Mystery School philosophies as one unified whole. Dale shows us how to open the deepest spaces of our heart, transforming our consciousness right down to the deepest elements of energetic alchemy. Dale has published numerous audio and video programs and is author of the book Echoes of an Ancient Dream: Aramaic Toning on the Path of Light.

Psychedelics with David Nichols

A review of psychedelics. Their history, natural sources, present state of research, and future outlook. The last few lines of the bio I sent have it: In this presentation, he will briefly discuss the history of psychedelics, how they act in the brain, and some of the more recent studies that have shown that psychedelics appear to have remarkable therapeutic efficacy in treating anxiety, depression, and certain addictions. This talk will be for the nonscientist. (Sorry. Due to the prevailing laws, no samples will be available!)

David E. Nichols, PhD is currently an Adjunct Professor in the Eshelman School of Pharmacy at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC. He is a Distinguished Professor Emeritus at the Purdue University College of Pharmacy, where he carried out teaching and research for 38 years prior to his retirement in 2012. The focus of his graduate training, beginning in 1969, and of most of his research subsequent to receiving his doctorate in 1973 was the investigation of the relationship between molecular structure and the action of various substances that modify behavioral states.

A major focus of his research was on substances known as hallucinogens, known more popularly as psychedelics. Widely published in the scientific literature and internationally recognized for his research on centrally active drugs, he has studied all of the major classes of psychedelic agents, including LSD and other lysergic acid derivatives, psilocybin and the tryptamines, and phenethylamines related to mescaline. Among scientists, he is recognized as one of the foremost international experts on the medicinal chemistry of psychedelics.

Creating a Conscious Relationship with Steve & Pamela Moore


Join Steve and Pamela Moore for a fascinating evening that will change the way you look at your relationship. None of us went to “Relationship School” before selecting our partners. It is very easy to get lost in the moments of disconnection and recurring conflicts that never seem to get resolved. No one taught us what to do when our relationship gets uninspiring. Come to this dynamic presentation and learn where conflict really comes from and how to deepen connection to your partner. This work is as much about enhancing an already great relationship as it is about repairing problems.

This talk is based on bestselling author and psychologist, Dr. Harville Hendrix’s work called Imago Relationship Therapy. He states “This is a revolutionary view of relationships: rather than leaving the relationship to find yourself, you find yourself through it.

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.

Sound Healing  with Dante Baker
(no food service during healing 8:00-8:45pm)

Sound healing improves and transforms a range of physical and emotional states. It has been clinically shown to support people suffering from stress related disorders and chronic pain. At a cellular level, all cells emit sounds frequencies in the course of enacting their metabolic processes. The most important principles of sound healing may be considered “resonances,” term with several implications. In the context of human physiology, resonance can be described as the frequency of vibration that is natural to a specific organ or body system. In sound healing, resonance principles are employed to re-harmonize cells that have been imprinted with disruptive frequencies. There is an interaction between the cells’ own sounds and those imposed by the environment, including sound healing devices.
