Buddhist prayer beads or 'malas' are a knotted tool used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra. The 108 beads are used often in combination with a charm and mother bead. The beads serve to remind practitioners that it is possible to break the cycle of birth and death. In this class, you will create your own personalized prayer mala to enhance your meditation practice by selecting the stone beads according to the purpose of the mantra.

Science honors the rational over the intuitive mind and discounts the value of anything that cannot be proven. In the face of this overwhelming dogma how do we reconcile the hubris of science and what we know to be spiritually true for us? Explore the frontiers of consciousness not yet accepted by science, like faith/belief/hope/trust/surrender, the non-local field, and spirit guides. Discover how we relate spiritually to the elements, especially of wind (breath) and water, and how we assimilate the benefits of transcendent experiences, indigenous knowledge, imagery, sacred sound, and the miraculous.

The sleep state is a deep reservoir of self-renewal and spiritual awakening. Every night we process the thoughts, feelings and actions of the day. At night, we also make a connection to the higher nature of our spirit self, the source of our love, wisdom, strength and joy. Dr. Kwako will discuss the purposes of the sleep state, how we process the day, and how to commune with spirit while asleep. .

Headline-making psychologist, researcher and author  Dr. Jean Twenge discuss why today's super-connected kids are growing up less rebellious, more tolerant, less happy and completely unprepared for adulthood... and what that means for the rest of us. Today's teens and young adults (born after 1995) are part of iGen, the first generation to spend its entire adolescence with smartphones. iGen adolescents spend more time communicating electronically and consume information online at a rapid pace. They also spend less time with their friends in person and are more likely to experience unhappiness, anxiety, and depression. iGen is also taking longer to assume both the responsibilities and pleasures of adulthood, is physically safer than any previous generation and has more realistic expectations for the workplace. Why? Join internationally renowned researcher and author Dr Jean Twenge to explore iGen psychology and to consider what can be done to help iGen reach their potential.

Einstein said  'The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind a faithful servant.' How do we reconcile the balance between intellect/intuition, control/compassion, ego/the Higher Self, sun/moon, yang/ying, and curing/healing? With advances in science and technology we are losing essential primal truths. For spiritual transformation we have to live in two worlds but our conditioning focuses on the outward not the inward journey. Find out how to address these conflicts and how to balance them.
