Food & Spirituality: Eating for Color and Vibration

This colorful and creative workshop will allow you to experience how your food choices and eating behaviors impact your 7-part chakra (psychoneuroendocrine) system. With a variety of activities, we will journey through the many facets of food, from physical to energetic, moving through the subtle connections food has with emotions, thoughts, love, truth, intuition, and spirituality.

Healer, Heal Thyself

Nedra Blietz,
West Salem, WI.
Session 4.

The belief systems of a healer are very important. In this workshop, we will check subconscious beliefs around instant healings, belief blocks for healers, programs around giving and receiving love, seeing truth, and feeling protected. We will also look at programs of taking on other peoples’ energies and sacrificing yourself for others. If you are a healer of any type or someone who is affected by other peoples’ energies, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to clear out some of these programs. It is possible to live without being affected by other peoples’ energies. Join ThetaHealing® Certificate of Science and Purpose Coach Nedra Blietz, to learn more!

After 20 years in office and hotel management, working paycheck to paycheck, feeling stressed out and often angry, I was ready for change. When my youngest child headed off to college, I devoted my time to becoming a trained yoga instructor and meditation facilitator. I was fascinated with the chakras and soon began to study healing crystals and other forms of healing energy. The more courses I took, the more I realized how to use these tools to change how I was feeling, my perception of the world and make big changes in my life. Of all the healing modalities I studied, I found that ThetaHealing® created the most powerful and significant shifts in my life. Through the ThetaHealing technique, I no longer need to “control” things, it has helped me eliminate anger and many limiting belief patterns from my life. Now, I am blessed to travel around the country and the world doing what I love which is teaching others how to bring healing into their lives and create a life that aligns with their true self and divine purpose.

Feeling, Seeing, & Psychically Reading Auras

Paula Kramer,

Session 4.

The first step in developing psychic skills is to pay attention, and auras are an easy and fun way to begin paying attention. Auras are colorful electromagnetic energy fields that surround us as individuals and as groups. Paying attention to your aura can get you started on identifying your psychic skills and help you take advantage of everything the psychic realm has to offer. Individual experiences during the workshop will vary.

Setting Your Internal GPS, Your I-GPS

Dorothea Hrossowyc,
Northfield, MN.
Session 4.

Neuroscience now shows us we all have our own internal GPS system, a part of the brain whose job is to see to it that we accomplish our goals and intentions for our lives. Unfortunately it typically sends you toward those goals and intentions that were set for you by someone else, or that you fell into through painful conditioning, i.e. things like “I am never going to be successful; I can’t have a close and lasting relationship; I am never good enough; I have to work really really hard to be successful; no one ever likes me; I can’t have what I want; there is something wrong with me, I always get rejected; I don’t get my needs met, I am supposed to take care of everyone else. If these sound familiar, or these kinds of things run your life, come and learn how to release these old unconscious limiting beliefs from your unconscious mind, through emotional mindfulness in the embodied self, and learn how to set the destinations you really want. And the great thing is you do not have to know how, Your I-GPS will show you the way, like it always does!

If Not You, then Who? Becoming the Sage the World Needs

Rita Simon, MD,
Chippewa Falls, WI.
Session 4.

“Ageism” is alive and well in our culture! It starts early in life, especially for women. Women become more and more invisible as they age, and their voices are taken less seriously or not heard at all. Other cultures value older people as sages, and as holders of experience, wisdom, spirituality, and hope. Our world is in desperate need for women to resume this role. “Who will speak as sages to a world that needs their voice if not you or I?” Let’s explore this together.

The purpose of this workshop is to help women of all ages begin to look deeply within themselves to discern and become aware of the innate wisdom that is already present in their deepest nature, no matter what age they are. We will explore ways in which this wisdom presents itself and how we can listen to what comes bubbling up, trust what we experience, act upon it in our own lives and situations, and extend it to the whole world. 

There will be time for silent reflection on these experiences, for small group discussion and sharing, and for developing a personal action plan. We will end with a brief ritual to empower the women to embrace their role as wisdom-holders and sages.

Rita Simon is a retired family practice physician who strongly believes that an essential task of each person’s life journey is to integrate one’s body, mind, and spirit, and to connect the beauty and awe of one’s inner life to that of the outer world. She embraces her role of helping people explore awareness of their personal body/mind/spirit beings and develop the insights to learn and practice whatever is needed for their own integration and balance. Rita has a particular love for, and connection with, the amazing spiritual women of the past and present who serve as her guides. She practices embodied spirituality through vocal and instrumental music, yoga and dance, and enjoying the beauty of nature.
