How has your month been? Mine has been a whirlwind of change and upward movement. Upward movement as in an increased ability to push through challenges and rise to any occasion, in spite of my chattering monkey-mind (aka the egoic-mind) and my 66 year-old body's increasing rise of 'issues'. Processing grief and loss (a friend's mom passed this September 4th, our mom passed on September 10th in 2004, and 9/11 always requires deep thought and clearing) and negative thoughts of destruction and fears of powerlessness in the face illness or -for-instance mother nature's wrath has become easier over the years. I attribute it to developing mastery over my thoughts,
will, and emotions with the consciousness-raising techniques I practice and teach. I have developed an ability to move through challenges with more perseverance than I had in my twenties. There is nothing more important to me than sharing what I learn and learning what you have to share. This is why I am very excited to be hosting a monthly meet-up type gathering.
At my new sweet suite, The Sanctuary for Celestial Empowerment, we will get together to share and gather gratitude and to experience GRACE first hand. I
n common~unity we will work towards the glorious future of our Golden Age.
oin me and my celestial colleagues, and my entourage of angels, saints, and ascended masters for our second evening of Gratitude & GRACE-Gathering. Meditate, have a discussion, express gratitude, network, and have some refreshments. This Sunday September 17th will be the second monthly, every-third Sunday afternoon Spiritual Meetup group, now being called a Gratitude & Grace Gathering.
The Relapse Prevention Psychotherapy Group is starting up this Wednesday at 7 pm. Be sure to cal for details.
On Sunday October 22nd Dr. Nancy Mazur and I are hosting an open house in the afternoon. We will be sending out announcements with details soon.

Working With the Rising Spiritually-Emergent Population
7.5 CECs for Practitioners
Over the past century the helping professions including Psychiatry, Psychology, Social Work, and Psychotherapy have been sorely devoid of Spiritual knowledge and application. This remains the case, in spite of an explosive interest and need by individuals and cultures world-wide. This upsurge in interest is evidenced by the rising popularity of Yoga, meditation, Shamanism, Energy Medicine, Higher Consciousness, medium-ship, paranormal and anomalous experiences, UFO-logy, and the resurgence of psychotropic use for mental health. In this workshop we provide an in-depth review of the meaning of Spiritual Emergence and the application of Spiritual practices as identified by the Integrative, Multi-Dimensional, Transpersonal, Humanistic, and Psychedelic trends for Practitioners. We will provide experiential exercises, practical suggestions, concrete examples and case studies for determining diagnosis.
