I Am the Word: The Energetics of Consciousness


Paul Selig


In his breakthrough work of channeled litera- ture, I Am the Word, author and medium Paul Selig recorded a program for personal and plane- tary evolution as humankind awakens to its own divine nature. Through a series of lectures, attunements, and energy activations, you will be introduced to the frequency of the Word, which can be described as the energy of “God in action.”


You will be shown exercises for healing the self and others, along with practical techniques for developing and sustaining higher levels of con- sciousness. You will also receive individual instruction to support you in moving through the physical and emotional blocks that may be


keeping you from manifesting your own higher nature. You can discover how realizing your own true potential is inexorably linked to the wellbeing of others and our planet.


Paul’s workshops can be deeply transformative. The energy he works with is palpable and lov- ing, and those attending will be supported in moving to the next level of their own spiritual development. This five-day intensive will offer the opportunity for more individual work, advanced teachings, and a deeper immersion in the higher energies.

The Joy of an Open Heart: Love, Awareness and Intimacy


Karishma Darby


There is a natural desire in all of us to fully be ourselves, to live and love from our deepest essential nature. We feel this desire most keenly in our longing for authentic human intimacy.


Unfortunately, painful and frightening experi- ences often lead us to withdraw from the gift of our own luminous beauty. Instead of cultivating our capacity for intimacy, we hide from our- selves and others, too anxious, depressed, or numb to honor and embody our true radiance.


In this workshop we will embark on an odyssey of self-discovery, exploring how the barriers and blocks that keep us from fully being ourselves can simply melt away in the light of our own welcoming consciousness. Through listening, awareness, and movement, we will gain an expe- riential understanding of our patterns of reach- ing and withdrawing, opening and closing, con- tracting and expanding, and pausing and mov- ing in the immediate play of relating to others.


Through dance and movement, silent and dynamic meditations, psychotherapeutic prac- tices, and interpersonal processes, we can come alive to our inner topography, moving from our inner awareness to the experience of open and transparent relating. We will discover how to live our joy and share that joy with others.


Join us for an opportunity to nourish your own deep aliveness and experience the essential radi-
