"Getting Into The Vortex: FREE Guided Meditations Group”

"Getting Into The Vortex: Guided Meditations Group”

BOULDER PUBLIC LIBRARY
1001 Arapahoe Ave
Boulder, CO 80302

Boulder Creek Room
10:30-12:00 1st Saturday of each month
FREE Meditation Group
Boulder Abraham-Hicks Meetup Group http://www.meetup.com/Boulder-Abraham-Hicks-Meetup-Group/

Please come and join the "Getting Into The Vortex" Guided Meditations through Abraham-Hicks! We'll gather, at the Boulder Creek Room, and listen to the introduction by Esther & Abraham and then listen to one or two of the meditations. We can then take a break to chat and enjoy any snacks that people may have brought. Depending on the remaining time available we could complete the gathering by listening to an additional meditation or continue any discussion as a group. We can also chat and discuss any thoughts about the meditations or about Abraham-Hicks in general!

"Living a better-feeling life really comes down to one thing only: coming into alignment with the Energy of our Source. Abraham reminds us that we are truly Source Energy focused into our physical bodies, and that a conscious Connection to that Broader Non-Physical part of us is necessary if we are to be the joyful Beings that we were born to be. Abraham calls that wonderful alignment Getting into the Vortex.
Through a series of Leading Edge books (New York Times bestsellers), Abraham has emphasized the importance of our conscious alignment with the Source within us. They have let us know that our natural state of Being is inside our Vortex of Creation in complete alignment with Source Energy—and that every aspect of our physical experience reflects our alignment with, or resistance to, that Connection. Everything—from the physical well-being of our bodies, the clarity of our minds, and the abundance we allow to flow, to the satisfaction in every relationship we experience—is impacted by our all-important relationship with our Vortex.

Abraham has helped us to understand that our dominant intent in every day is to get into the Vortex! And now, they have lovingly and specifically guided Jerry and Esther Hicks in the creation of an innovative and valuable tool that promises to get us into the Vortex right now .

This unique recording contains four powerfully guided daily meditations that have been designed to get you into the Vortex of Creation in four basic areas of your life: General Well-Being, Financial Well-Being, Physical Well-Being, and Relationships.

Jerry and Esther are thrilled to offer this powerful, first-of-its kind, musically scored, breath-enhancing, user-friendly tool from Abraham that will get you into the Vortex.

Getting Into the Vortex was inspired by the Teachings of Abraham-Hicks

www.Abraham-Hicks.com

“Nothing is more important than I feel good!”

Our desire is to attract like minded thinkers who are dedicated to experiencing joy, well-being and abundance.

The purpose of our Meetup Group is to enhance our vibration around what it is that we want in any aspect of our lives: personally, professionally, spiritually; as well as related to our health, relationships, happiness, etc."

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Skills Training

Finding Your True North for Creating a Life Worth Living

Deep down inside, what do you really want? What’s important to you? What’s your hearts deepest desire? People often answer with such things, as “I just want to be happy.” “I want to be rich.” “I want to be successful.” “I want respect.” “I want a great job. “I want to be thinner.”

Now these are truthful answers, but they are not helpful in pointing to a direction for how to live nor keeping you motivated. To find direction and motivation you can ask questions like “How would I behave differently in relationships if I were rich, successful or thin?” “What sort of relationships do I want to build with myself and others if I were living my idea self?” These questions point to the underlying values connected to your heart and soul’s deepest desire.

Connecting with your values can give you a sense of meaning and purpose. Living and creating a life guided by values allows you to gain a sense of vitality and joyfulness. Life becomes rich, full, and meaningful, even when bad things happen. Values are about ongoing action, a way of being in the world. They are about what you want to do in your life while you are here. Like a compass, values point us in a direction to live our life.

Life involves hard work. All meaningful projects require effort, whether you’re raising kids, renovating your house, learning a new healthy life style, or starting your own business. Often we think, “It’s too hard,” and we give up or avoid trying. Values motivate us to stick with it. They help us to engage in the process of achieving our goals.

It’s importance to recognize that values are not the same as goals. As mentioned earlier, values are a life direction like going west. You never reach the end of west. For example, let’s say you value being a loving parent, you can continue to be loving indefinitely. It’s more than a to do list where you put a check mark next to the item as complete. Let’s say you want to lose ten pounds. That is a goal. However, the value underneath the goal is what speaks to your heart. Ask yourself, “How does this goal serve my purpose?”

Goals become part of the ongoing action connected to values. Hence, you may decide you have a goal of spending time playing with your kids, planning and going on outings with them or reading with them. These specific activities can be crossed off a list. Hence, they are the goals connected to your value of being a loving parent.

Goal setting is quite a skill and it does require a bit of practice to get the hang of it. After you have reflected on your values write them down so you can refer back to them as you develop your action plan.

Next, you want to set a SMART goal. Here is what the acronym means:
S = specific (Be as clear as possible when describing the action you are will to take towards your goal.).
M = meaningful (Make sure your goal is connected to your value).
A = adaptive (Is the goal likely to improve your life in some way?)
R = realistic (Are the resources available to you to accomplish the goal?)
T = time bound (Put a specific time frame with date or even hour you will take proposed action.)

Now that you set a goal take some time to identify the benefits. Clarify to yourself the positive outcomes to achieving your goal. Finally, be willing to identify obstacles that may present difficulties in achieving your goal and possible ways to deal with the obstacles. Obstacles can be external such as lack of money, transportation or lack of skills. Other obstacles can be internal difficulties such as thoughts of insecurity, low self-esteem, and self-doubt. If the goal seems too big break it down into smaller parts. The important thing is to start to take action toward your goals and value based living.

Tell other people about your intention to achieve the goal. Research shows that if you make a public commitment you are more likely to follow through. Values clarification and goal setting (committed action) are part of the process in Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT).

I use ACT in helping people create a life they love living by helping them get clear on what’s importance. The aim of ACT is to help people reduce their struggle with pain and suffering and choose behaviors that work. It does not mean you will not experience difficult feelings, it means you can have a sense of life being fulfilling and with purpose based your unique set of values.

If you would like learn more about how to set goals based on your unique set of values attend one of my workshops.

Erotic Intelligence: A Sexuality Supervision & Mentoring Group for Therapists

The energy we call our “sexuality” plays a part in nearly everything we feel and do as human animals; it is the energy responsible for how we - and everything else - got here.

Our sexual energy is our generative capacity and our creative life force. It is our impulse, thrust and drive to not merely survive but to create meaning and impact in the world. And, it is an essential element in all processes and practices whose goals include our health and wholeness. In order to be truly effective therapists/healers, we must invite our clients’ sexual selves shamelessly and fully into the room.

Yet, we are no less human than our clients. Just because we are credentialed therapists, does not mean we are immune from our culture’s (and families’) shaming and ignorance of human sexuality. Our ability to be conscious, curious and normalizing takes intention and practice. As professionals, many of us are on our own in this terrain, wanting to attend to our own and our clients‘ processes but lacking a safe, intelligent and compassionate container. This group is designed to be just that.

What You Will Gain From This Group:
• An understanding of sexuality in its many expressions
• An understanding of the concepts and realities of Gender, Orientation, Identity and relationship practices
• An in depth understanding of the phrase Erotic Intelligence; what it means and how we can support it in ourselves & our clients
• The opportunity to explore our own stories, habits and behaviors around sexuality and understand how this impacts, informs
and supports our work with our clients
• A comprehensive list of practices and exercises to offer your clients that will help you gain more information and understand-
ing and inspire deeper trust and self-awareness in your clients
• The opportunity to debunk commonly held assumptions and identify common blind spots
• A current comprehensive reading list on basic human sexuality, research and practices
• More ease, comfort and instinct acknowledging and working with our clients’ sexual selves
• In-depth case consultation

Methods of Learning:
• experiential forms
• small and large group work
• journaling
• viewing media content (some may be explicit in nature,
used for learning and exploration)
• role playing and psychodrama
• case consultation
• guided process

Format - Each 3 hour Group Will Contain:
1 hour for case consultation
1 hour for experiential learning about ourselves
1 hour for learning about human sexuality and all its wildness

Details:
We will gather the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 3-6pm (with a few exceptions, noted below):
Session 1: 9/9
Session 2: 10/14
Session 3: 11/4 Session 4: 12/9 Session 5: 1/13 Session 6: 2/10

Limited to 8 participants

Cost is $90 per session per participant
(total of $540) - or - $70 per session if paid in advance ($420 total)

This Group Is Offered by Christiane Pelmas, MSW, CSB
Christiane has been in private practice, as an underworld guide, for more than 20 years, working with individuals and couples doing work she calls ReWilding: restoring our primary relationship with The World, creating meaning and fostering profound intimate engagement with all life around us. She works with clients both in the office, in the wilds of nature and in the wilds of the bedroom, guiding our intimate practices in a multi-modality approach including one-way touch and bodywork.

TLC for the Therapists Soul

TLC for the Therapists Soul

Humans are highly interactive beings, constantly exchanging energy with one another. We also accumulate stress and strain from the environment around us and each other. Those who care for the health and well-being of others are particularly susceptible. Without an effective means to release the stress we’ve accumulated, we have less protection against fatigue, disease, injury and the inevitable professional burnout. In this entertaining and hands-on class, you will learn how to use the elements of nature and your own inherent healing capacity to care for yourself. The tools and techniques you will receive come from the ancient science of Ayurved and the most up-to-date scientific information on disease prevention, nutrition and self-care.
You will learn:
• How to identify symptoms that you have absorbed stress from others.
• How to use elements of nature to immediately release what you have taken on.
• How to easily recharge and restore balance and equilibrium to your life.
• How to set an optimal schedule for your own health and happiness.

Instructor: Máiréad Kerr is a certified nutritional therapist and detox counselor. Mairead
is originally from Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland, and earned her degree in Peace and Conflict
Studies at the University of Ulster. She has postgraduate training from extensive studies in India where she learned advanced Ayurvedic techniques for health and healing. Her training in this area is equal to a Ph.D.

People House Teams Up with Community Holistic Health Center, and Aspen Roots Counseling to Provide F

Experiencing a natural disaster event can result in physical, mental, emotional, and/or spiritual shifts, some of which can be disconcerting and unsettling. Such events create a sense of being out-of-control of the environment, disrupting the ability to meet basic needs such as shelter, food, and water; and facing potential or actual loss of home or loved ones. Even once physically safe, the experience may create turmoil in our inner and outer world that lasts beyond the end of the event itself.
Those touched by such events may experience depression, anxiety, despair, isolation, uncertainty, insecurity, anger, fear of or actual injury or death, and/or spiritual searching. These events may also have positive side effects, such as fostering a sense of community support, heightening one's sense of appreciation for loved ones, or bolstering one's trust in higher power.
Sometimes the challenging after-effects of such experiences can be overwhelming and you may wish to speak with a mental health professional either individually or with your spouse/partner or family members. In addition to those issues listed above, such after-effects may include:

difficulty concentrating
irritability
intrusive thoughts or dreams of the event
being very watchful for signs of threat to physical safety when no threat is currently present
emotional or mental numbing/detachment
inability to remember important aspects of the event
feeling like the external world is unreal
sense of being separated from your physical body, thoughts, actions, and/or feelings
Some ways children may indicate distress or attempts to make sense of their experience that are different from the above include the following:

nightmares related to the event
drawing pictures of the event
reenacting the event through play
increased fear about being separated from parents
If you or someone you know is experiencing these symptoms and would like support from a mental health professional, Counseling Interns and Private Practitioners from People House will be available for up to 3 free crisis-recovery counseling sessions. If after 3 sessions you wish to have continued counseling, the counselor will provide a referral list for counseling services in the Denver, Aurora, Lafayette, or Boulder area.
People House is a 501(c)(3) a non-denominational, non-sectarian spiritual organization of promoting personal growth. Our mission is to enrich and enhance lives through educational programs, counseling, facilitation, fellowship, leadership training and support. People House is located at 3035 West 25th Ave in Denver (a half block west of Federal Blvd) and 13693 East Iliff in Aurora (1-225 and Iliff). Aspen Roots Counseling has also graciously agreed to provide space for People House interns and practitioners to see crisis counseling clients at their facility located at 2945 Center Green Court, Suite G211 in Boulder.
People House is pleased to announce a recent partnership with Community Holistic Health Center, which will enable flood counseling services to also be provided in Lafayette. Located at 409 S. Public Road, Community Holistic Health Center is also a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to enhancing conscious awareness of body, mind and spirit through individual healing sessions, support groups, classes, and educational training. Like People House, the Community Holistic Health Center provides individuals and groups a place to receive holistic services in a supportive environment. And for persons stranded by road closures or loss of transportation services can also be done by phone or Skype sessions from any location.
Any one in need of counseling services is asked to call the People House administrative offices at 303-480-5130 to set an appointment visit our website at www.peoplehouse.org for a listing of interns or practitioners in your area.
We respectfully seek your help in publicizing news of this valuable resource.
