Staying Hopeful & Positive During the Coming Transitions
with author and Oasis owner Robert Roskind

What did these “teachers of love” remember that we can also – and by doing so, change the world? Buddha (Buddhist), Jesus (Jewish), Gandhi (Hindu), MLK (Baptist), Bob Marley(Rasta), Mandela (Methodist), Mother Teresa (Catholic), Tutu (Anglican), Muhammed Ali (Muslim), Mister Rogers (ordained Presbyterian minister), and the Dalai lama (Tibet Buddhist). They remembered that a Loving Creator had sent them here to transform all the circumstances into which they were sent through love. And without political, economic or military power, they did. They demonstrated that the power of love, when expressed through us, can overcome great obstacles. They are the way showers and now we manifesting hundreds of thousands of us, and soon millions, that are remembering and transforming the situations into which we are sent. This is how the world will be awakened. It was our Creator’s design all along that after a long and painful “detour into fear,” His/Her children would once again remember their own Divinity. All is on perfect Divine schedule – no matter how it may 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.

Movies-That-Matter/Spiritual Cinema
AWAKE
AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda is an unconventional biography about the Hindu Swami who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s. Paramahansa Yogananda authored the spiritual classic “Autobiography of a Yogi,” which has sold millions of copies worldwide and is a go-to book for seekers, philosophers and yoga enthusiasts today. (Apparently, it was the only book that Steve Jobs had on his iPad.) By personalizing his own quest for enlightenment and sharing his struggles along the path, Yogananda made ancient Vedic teachings accessible to a modern audience, attracting many followers and inspiring the millions who practice yoga today.

Filmed over three years with the participation of 30 countries around the world, the documentary examines the world of yoga, modern and ancient, east and west and explores why millions today have turned their attention inwards, bucking the limitations of the material world in pursuit of self-realization.

Archival material from the life of Yogananda (who died in 1952) creates a spine for the narrative, but the film stretches the dimensions of a standard biography. The footage includes stylized interviews, metaphoric imagery and recreations, taking us from holy pilgrimages in India to Harvard’s Divinity School and its cutting-edge physics labs, from the Center for Science and Spirituality at the University of Pennsylvania to the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, California. By evoking the journey of the soul as it pushes its way through the oppression of the human ego and delusion of the material world, the film creates an experiential immersion into the unseen realms. AWAKE is ultimately the story of humanity itself: the universal struggle of all beings to free themselves from suffering and to seek lasting happiness.

Memoirs of an Ex-Hippie: Seven Years in the Counterculture

A one-man play by author and Oasis founder Robert Roskind, set to photos and the music of the era!

The counterculture of the 60s and 70s has been viewed as everything from naive to hedonistic. However, most of these views were formed by observing the movement from the outside. “Memoirs of an Ex-Hippie” offers a vastly different perspective, one developed from within. After graduating college in 1968, Robert Roskind hit the road for seven years. Roskind’s travels lead him into the heart of the counterculture–to Esalen Institute, Tassajara Hot Springs, Big Sur, Vancouver Island, the communes of Oregon and North Carolina, Altamont Pop Festival, Mt. Shasta, the Haight-Ashbury and the “motherland”–Northern California. His personal odyssey, sometimes profane and funny, sometimes profound and serious, reveals this tumultuous era as a cultural and spiritual renaissance that birthed many of the solutions to problems humanity now faces.

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.

Surviving (and Thriving) Amidst the Suicide Mission of Life on Earth
with Michelle Sauber

Have you or your loved ones ever experienced anxiety, depression, and/or suicidal thoughts? Have you lost someone to suicide? What about alcoholism, addiction and/or overdose? Yeah…me too. In a very big way. Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Well then let’s come together on what would have been my mother’s 55th birthday to share some legit experience, strength and hope. She never had a public memorial and it has taken me 5+ years to speak out as openly, fully and honestly about her (as well as my own) countless dark nights of the soul.

Michelle Sauber is a Game Changing Lighthouse, Ambassador of Hope and Transformation Strategist. She hails from Chicago with a BS in Learning and Organizational Change from Northwestern University. She is a 31 year old INFJ still trying to pinpoint her authentic life’s calling. Since December 2017 she has been committed to a yearlong Pilgrimage of Grace which includes trips to Austin TX, Topsail Island NC, Washington DC, Chicago and California.

Pardon My Vernacular: Wordsmith At Large with
Normia Vázquez Scales (Mia)

Feeling stuck? Become fluid via acquired “balance.”

Are you seeking a keen sense of direction? Perhaps, you’re a stagnant student in limbo. A professional seeking your true “predestined” calling? Are you at a crossroads or someone merely aspiring for a passion-filled life to, name a few?
My mission is to implore synchronized thinkers to acquire optimal fulfillment utilizing my crafted leap of faith (carpe diem ideology) and three-dimensional perspective/philosophy to yield and sustain relative balance. A plethora of thought provoking tasks and topics spanning from common to avant-garde subjects are meticulously woven into each radio segment, to stretch listeners’ thinking from linear to 3D thought processes over time. As a result, a self overhaul will gracefully unfold by virtue of sustaining one’s equilibrium and becoming unstuck per se. Embrace the journey to short circuit limiting beliefs and practices and ignite the evolution which will take precedence. I’ll be at your disposal amid the expedition.

If you enjoy my show, I humbly implore to make donations via Patreon via: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=7241511

LEARN A SIMPLE WAY TO RAISE YOUR VIBRATION AND DEAL WITH EVERYDAY LIFE
Rose Gonzales- Mugaburu

Someone cuts you off on the highway, you find your significant other with someone else, you
get passed over for a promotion, you don’t get your promised raise. These are rather drastic
examples of someone or a situation knocking you off your grounding. Simply put grounding is
everyone’s connection to the center of the earth.

I like to tell my clients “don’t forget to make like a tree”. The tree is used as a metaphor and a teaching tool to activate your imagination to attain grounding. If you are grounded, little things or big things in life won’t bother you as much and you can make a conscious decision from a place of neutrality. Join me as I teach a simple, powerful and fun way to ground , stay grounded and keep your energy channels open and flowing . Everyone can do this, no experience is necessary. This is an ancient mystery school teaching I learned during one my spiritual trainings with the Intuitive Mind Program.

About Rose Gonzales- Mugaburu

A practicing general dentist since 1989 , I began my spiritual journey in 2007 . I have experience, training and certifications in a variety of energy modalities. All these different tools provide me the guidance to choose the best method of healing for the person or animal at the healing session ; for their best and highest good. I am blessed and grateful for all the Divine healing energies that run through my energy channels . They allow me to assist people with their healing process and personal journey. I feel blessed to have the guidance and help from Archangels (Michael, Raphael, Uriel, Ariel and Gabriel ), Angels, Spirit Animals, Ancestors, Ascended Masters and Dimensional Beings. Some people call this a gift, I am grateful for having the intuitive ability to listen to guidance and be open to all possibilities.

I use the following healing energies: Reiki, Tibetan, Bali & Philippine healing energies, multi-dimensional transformation energies from healing masters, Mother Earth and Spirit Animal s .  The healing energy flows through my hands as much as the individual person or animal needs.  I am the vehicle that the Divine Source uses to help the person or animal heal. I also use essential oils, crystals and incense as aids in each session.
I connect with my clients on a deeper level because I have also experienced readings & healings first hand as a major part of my teachings. This has been part of my personal healing journey, having become a clear channel by allowing more of my spirit to come into my body. We owe the people and animals we are working with the gift of a clear and centered healer. My purpose is to help people and animals raise their vibration and frequency resulting in enlightenment and freedom.
We are all part of Oneness in spirit, therefore we are all connected in this realm. Lack of respect for anything living or elemental, is lack of respect for ourselves and Mother Earth. When there is lack of respect there is a disconnect that occurs in Oneness and the chain is broken. If we all strive to bring more of our spirit into our human experience we become more connected to Oneness and can spread the love that the Divine has and is inherently within us. God created us in his/her image therefore we are all God/Goddess.
Part of our soul’s journey is to remember who we are as spirit and to live in that light, grace and love; no matter whether you are from here, 4th or 5th dimension or beyond. By becoming and bringing in more love and light into our hearts and embodying it, we become that love and light and can spread it just by being.  It is part of our journey as human experiences here on Earth to remember who we are as spirit and that we are all connected.

Living a 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.

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.

SELF LOVE – EMBRACING YOUR TRUE SELF

Self love is such a key factor in determining the quality of one’s life. But how many of us got to feel as children that we weren’t good enough, smart enough, that we were essentially flawed and lacking in some way? How many of us still carry vestiges of shame and self blame for things which were never our fault? How many of us still view ourselves through the narrow lens of how we were seen as children, blind to the truth of our own uniqueness, the truth of our own magnificence?

Come enjoy an experiential evening of Intuitive Life Coaching and hands on Energy 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 feeling lighter, less burdened and more connected to your own true nature, your own true beauty, to your own true essential self.

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.

Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy with Elizabeth Desrochers, certified QHHT Practitioner, Shaman and Spiritual Teacher

Elizabeth is a Teacher of Healers; a gifted Visionary with a unique ability to create Wellness and Joy with each person she works with. Elizabeth will be talking about her journey from Welder to Healer with her most respected work in QHHT Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy, a Hypnosis technique that takes the client through a guided meditation into the somnambulistic state of consciousness.  The Subconscious has the ability to identify any physical problem it detects within the body to a QHHT Practitioner and explain the causes for its presence, be it from the current life or a past life.  QHHT was developed by Dolores Cannon, a hypnotherapist specializing in past life regression.

In a somnambulistic state, we have access to that part of ourselves often called the Higher Self/the Soul where we dialogue with it to find answers to solve our issues.  Supplementing the vast body of work Dolores had produced, the results experienced by QHHT Practitioners, students of Dolores who have learned her technique and practice it with their own clients, conclusively support the finding that we have all lived multiple Other Lives and we all have a Subconscious which contains the answers to any question we may have about ourselves or the life we are living.

During this introduction at Oasis Elizabeth she will bring us into a guided meditation to sample her work. There is nothing difficult about it.  We all access this state twice a day, once when we’re waking up and again just before sleep.

Elizabeth will be available to answer your questions and is offering private QHHT sessions in Chapel Hill March 16-19 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday). Call Kathleen Paul  919-624-0258  or email at kathleen.metta@gmail.com to schedule your session.

Poetry of the Soul: Using Creative Writing & the Moon for Emotional Healing
with Katy Ibur

While most of us know our basic sign in astrology (the sun sign), many of us do not realize that there is more to our personality and astrological make-up than just one sign. The astrological moon sign governs our emotions–how we react and process emotions, in addition to how we feel most creatively satisfied and a sense of inner fulfillment. Creative writing pulls emotions to the surface–we connect more readily to themes that ring true to us on an emotional, soul level and express this connection through written word. This is why writing is an excellent tool for shedding light on emotional tendencies ready to be released, and for cultivating new emotional patterns that set us up for success.

In this workshop, we will spend the first part of the session learning about the moon sign. What is your moon sign and what does that mean for your emotions? What are some detrimental and beneficial expressions of the moon sign in relation to your emotions? We will then spend some time writing with prompts to explore and bring about more emotional awareness. Everyone will have the opportunity to share what was written and/or learned from the experience. We will end with intention setting and a sense of renewed emotional clarity.

Katy Ibur is an astrologer, dream coach and metaphysical advisor. She is passionate about using astrology and dream work to enhance Self understanding and Self healing (especially the emotions). She is originally from St. Louis and just moved to the Carrboro area this past summer! In St. Louis, she was involved for 7 years in the Gifted Writer’s Project, where she blossomed her passion for creative writing.

Tuning Your BioField

 

“It’s your amazing journey and I am a cooperative component in service to your Highest Self and Highest Good.”

~Vibrance

Born Doncella, my spiritual community calls me Vibrance Heartfelt. As a self-actualized spiritual healer (20+ years), I am so happy to offer information, demonstrations and personal stories about BioField Tuning.

Audible frequencies are beneficial for balancing the nervous system, relaxing the muscles and soft tissues. With the use of tuning forks, I also tune into my clairaudient (clear hearing) and my clairsentience (clear feeling) to work directly with you and your BioField (energetic field) to help clear energetic blocks, patterns of limiting beliefs, and other energetic disharmonies and imbalances, within your BioField.

Your BioField stores information related to different emotions, relationships, and events located in various time periods. The chronology of the field is like the rings in a tree that reflect the history of the individual, with birth starting on the outer edge of the field and moving in to the current age.

This simple and non-invasive method of BioField Tuning can produce profound and powerful outcomes, relieving physical trauma or injury and emotional effects of stress and  emotional imbalance. It promotes relaxation and reducing anxiety, improving sleep, reduces brain fog, giving the recipient a great sense of well-being. People of all ages can benefit from these with every session.

The Boy Who Became A Scientist: The Clock with Kevin Morgan

 

It was raining the day the boy was born. Raining incendiary bombs, dropped by nazi planes during World War II. He became one of the many boys playing on the bomb-sites of Britain. There was a clock. It was sitting on a high mantelpiece, jutting out into space, four floors above the remains of a stricken row house. The bomb-site was like a missing tooth, in an otherwise healthy smile. The adjacent houses appeared unimpressed by the complete destruction of their neighbor.

Boys would try to knock that old time-piece down, by throwing stones. Even when they used homemade catapults, it remained steadfast. The boy thought, “I expect it’s still showing the time when the building fell down.” He never did consider it wise to hurl rocks up there. Being unable to climb up to see the time on that mysterious memento of times long past, he would dream of flying there instead.

He’d always wanted to fly. Not with a machine. Just by using mind control. He still tries to think his body off the ground, from time-to-time. Even yesterday he attempted it for several minutes, and he’s well beyond his allotted three score years and ten. Having spent many years studying physics, the boy is well aware that unaided flight isn’t possible. He’s old enough to know better. Fortunately, the boy refuses to know better.

You can laugh at an old man’s folly, but one day you might see him skimming across the treetops. Then you’ll wish you’d tried to master flight, before it was too late. In his boyhood dreams, he would float up to that high ledge. Placing his ear close to the clock face, he would note that the time never changed. Twenty-two minutes passed four. Morning or afternoon he had no idea. On each visit, the boy would hear a faint tick, tock, tick, tock. The clock was waiting for it’s owners to return, and wind it up with that rusty brass key. From time-to-time, the boy would search for that key amongst the rubble.

Dr. Kevin Morgan is a veterinarian, research scientist, triathlete and storyteller. He is in his mid-70s, and wants to keep you moving into your Golden Years. He lives life to the full, on a diet of exercise, meditation, plant-based foods (not for everyone, he knows!), reading, writing, enjoying family, friends, and a number of animal companions (two dogs, Willbe and Scooter, a cat, Cat, nine zebra fish, there were only two, and two snails, to clean the tank). He also finds peace of mind and good food in his organic vegetable garden. Dr. Morgan encourages you to enjoy your later years, by adapting to the inevitable changes of aging.

His background in veterinary medicine, extensive research on the Biochemistry of the body’s energy systems, combined with a wide range of sports and body-movement training, from water polo to Jeet Kune Do (Bruce Lee Martial Arts Style), and Yoga to Feldenkrais, respectively, allows him to continue to enjoy grueling endurance races, with aortic disease. As of this writing, he is the only person in the world to complete a full Ironman with an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) stent graft. Furthermore, his studies of the mechanics of running led to his overcoming three knee surgeries to qualify for the Boston Marathon, in his late 60s. This experience, and a love of life, resulted in Dr. Morgan leaving a successful scientific research career to start a business, Old Dogs in Training, LLC. He says, “Forty years in research is surely enough.” The mission of Old Dogs in Training, LLC., is to encourage active healthy aging through body-awareness. Such training will help you to avoid, or repair, exercise-induced strains, sprains and injuries. He wants older people to improve their movement skills, by bringing them into the light of consciousness. For an enjoyable retirement. You will find over 1,000 articles about his journey on his blog, AthleteWithStent.Com. Dr. Morgan provides you with tools you will need to prepare for the interesting challenges of aging.

Has your spiritual journey just begun? Are you years, perhaps decades, down the path?
