Journal Like God – Workshop/Lecture
with Maryann Patalano

This workshop is based upon the new thought book “Journal Like God: Harness the Creative Power of the Universe Through Journal Writing.” Do you believe your personal journal is private? It is not – the Universe is reading it! Learn how to use spiritual principles to turn your personal journal into a powerful life-changing tool.  Often, we write in our journals without giving thought or consideration to our state of consciousness at the time. Using the 10 core attributes of Spirit, you can learn to align your thoughts and energy to Spirit’s and write from that perspective.

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.

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.

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.

Kezia Renee Lechner moved to this area from Philadelphia. She offers private sessions and hosts a monthly, sliding scale Healing Clinic in Chapel Hill. Formerly a professional artist, she was a member of a National Artist’s Coaching Community for over a decade. 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.

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.”

Steve & Pamela Moore are a real couple who love to share their expertise and their own relationship journey (bumps and all). Steve Moore, LCSW has been a psychotherapist for 30 years. He is a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist and his wife, Pamela is a Certified Imago Relationship Educator. Together they will present a couple’s seminar called “Creating a Conscious Relationship Experiential Seminar” on Saturday, November 11, 2017.

This will be their last Oasis presentation for this year.

Inner Worlds/Outer Worlds

This is a beautiful, peace-inducing video journey into remembering we are all much more than just a physical body encapsulating our egos and that a Divine intelligent pattern is designed into both our inner and outer worlds.

There is one vibratory source that connects all things. It has been called Akasha, the primordial OM, the music of the sphere, Indra’s net of jewels, and a thousand other names throughout history. The ancient teachers taught Nada Brahma; the universe is vibration. The vibratory field is at the root of all true spiritual experience and scientific investigation.

It is the same field of energy that yogis, mystics, saints, Buddhas, shamans and seers has observed by looking within themselves. Many of history’s monumental thinkers such as Pythagoras, Tesla, Einstein, Kepler, and Leonardo DaVinci, have come to the threshold of this mystery. In today’s society most of humanity has lost this ancient wisdom. We have strayed too far into the realm of thinking, and lost our connection to our inner worlds.

This balance- what the Buddha called the middle way, what the Taoists called the balance of Yin and Yang, is the birthright of every human being. It is the common root of all sciences and all religions, and the link between our inner and outer worlds. International version includes narration in English, French, Spanish, German, and Hindi. Subtitles in English, French, Spanish, German, Hindi, Polish and Swedish.

Sing-along with Songs of the 70s
with PJ Kula

Join PJ Kula’s Songs of the 70s Sing! at Oasis for an evening of community and celebration. Music is healing. It connects us with each other. Joining together in song lifts the spirit of all.

In these days the headlines remind us that civil rights remains illusive even decades after the heroes of the 1960s made it cool to say “make peace not war”. The music that was the soundtrack for gatherings of peace are as relevant now as they were then. This time to sing is not a lament that we are worse off politically than even in pre-civil rights America. We do not sing protest songs to complain, but to inspire.

More than a concert, the Sing! at Oasis encourages everyone to come together as one voice to sing the words that defined the 1970s. The evening is more than a happy recollection of earlier days. It goes beyond the celebration of music. It is a time to reflect about how heartfelt lyrics and passionate picking and strumming can catalyze and inspire a generation. OK, the generation may have gracefully, more or less, grayed and forgotten where the damn glasses are, but the children of the 70s are joining with Gen X and every other post-everything to lift up our voice and sing.

It’s a good sing, a happy sing, a worthwhile sing. It’s Led Zeppelin musicianship. It’s deep river poetry. It’s a good time singing CSN&Y, Beatles, Rolling Stones, and other excellent expressions of vinyl. Come join PJ Kula, Philip & Jennifer, for an evening of fun on a global day of celebrating the simple joy of singing!

Philip Pennington: Philip teaches voice, piano, guitar, and ukulele in Carrboro. He has produced albums at Northstar on the Screen Gems movie lot, including the first Source album that won ‘Video of the Year.’ Philip received his doctorate with research in music hermeneutics and a statistical analysis of music performance styles.

Dr. Pennington is a session player on guitar, piano, and other keyboards. His stage management and design clients include Grammy winners and Platinum Artists (Olivia Newton John, Phil Collins, Heart, Kenny Loggins, Lionel Ritchie, and Hall & Oates). Philip has led song sessions on 3 continents and around a couple hundred campfires. He has been the pipe organist/pianist/guitarist for the Duke Chapel Children’s Christmas Eve Service for a couple of decades, and is very happy to be a part of PJ Kula’s Songs of the 70s Sing! at Oasis.

Jennifer Robancho specializes in teaching Beginner, Gentle and Restorative Yoga through her online yoga studio, Island Girl Wellness. She is a singer/songwriter that floats from the healing vibrations of sacred chant to the grooving beats of indie rock. From teaching herself to play John Denver’s “Annie’s Song” on the recorder at 8 years old, to playing the French Horn throughout junior high and high school, to that timely phone call when Jennifer called Philip to ask about receiving lessons for guitar, music has and will always hold a place in Jennifer’s heart and her life.

When Jennifer sings her voice tells the backstory behind the song. You will feel like you are inside the lyrics with her as she spins a tale that is both whimsical and substantial. She breathes joy and contemplation into sung poetry that in the moment becomes your story too. Journeying together with Philip, Jennifer desires to reach the hearts of the world through sharing the gift of breath, movement and song.

PJ Kula: Philip and Jennifer have woven their diverse renaissance of experience together in the creation of PJ Kula. Rock & Roll merges with Peaceful & Soulful with influences including the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and Bob Marley. Complementing and acknowledging what they both love, and celebrating what makes each one different, PJ Kula is a blend of rock, reggae, and global music that transforms and unites. https://www.facebook.com/pjkulamusic/
