A renaissance in cellular biology has recently revealed the molecular mechanisms bridging the mind-body connection. These newly identified mechanisms include molecular master switches through which our thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs create the conditions of our body and of our place in the world.

Brian Weiss, M.D.

The Spirituality of Weight Loss: Cracking the Code of Compulsive Behavior
For so many people, whether your addiction is to a substance or merely to a certain way of thinking or acting, a profound humbling occurs when you realize that your problem is bigger than you are. The terror of realizing, even dimly, that you have no control over a self-destructive pattern of behavior—that as much as you would want to, you simply cannot stop—can mark a crucial turning point in your life. At that point, you go in one of two directions: either way, way down; or way, way up. . . . This workshop is for you if you know in your heart that you are an addict and that you are powerless before your addictive behavior. As the title promises, Marianne Williamson looks at weight loss from a spiritual perspective, bringing you 30 lessons that can be done separately or in conjunction with any other serious spiritual path. These 30 lessons are completely separate from anything related to diet or exercise—they will retrain your consciousness in the area of weight in order to break the cycle of overeating, dieting, and shame that rules so many lives. Finally, Marianne has brought you what you’ve been waiting for: help to heal your addiction once and for all!

SPECIAL GUEST APPEARANCE BY LOUISE L. HAY
SATURDAY – November 21, 2009
9:00 am – 10:30 am Morning Welcome: Louise Hay
Best-selling author and self-help pioneer Louise L. Hay welcomes you to this extraordinary weekend conference with her simple messages about affirmations and how to use the power of your thoughts to heal your life.
We’ve all heard stories of people who’ve experienced seemingly miraculous recoveries from illness, but can the same thing happen for our world? According to pioneering biologist Bruce H. Lipton, it’s not only possible, it’s already occurring. In this keynote, this world-renowned expert in the emerging science of epigenetics reveals how our changing understanding of biology will help us navigate this turbulent period in our planet’s history and how each of us can participate in this global shift. Dr. Lipton invites us to reconsider the following:
• The “unquestionable” pillars of biology, including random evolution, survival of the fittest, and the role of DNA
• The relationship between mind and matter
• How our beliefs about Nature and human nature shape our politics, culture, and individual lives
• How each of us can become planetary “stem cells” supporting the health and growth of our world
By questioning the old beliefs that got us to where we are today and keep us stuck in the status quo, we can trigger the spontaneous evolution of our species that will usher in a brighter future not only for us, but for our world!

In this workshop, you will learn exactly what you can do to free yourself from all of your problems and enter a whole new paradigm of peace and joy. You can’t let go of your thoughts; that’s not possible. But when you question your thoughts, they let go of you.

Take a deep breath, relax, and JUMP! with Byron Katie into a new world, a happy life, and the end of suffering.
Visions, Trips, and Crowded Rooms: Revealing Life’s Final Mysteries
David Kessler, renowned expert on death and grief, co-author of two bestselling books with Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, was honored to be with her during her passing. His first book, often the #1 best selling hospice book, received praise from Mother Teresa. Today, David takes on three experiences that challenge our ability to fully understand the mystery of our final days. The first is “visions,” when the dying appear to look into the world to come. The second is preparing for a “trip.” The third is “seeing crowds.” In truth, we never die alone. Just as loving hands greeted us when we were born, loving arms will embrace us when we transition. In the tapestry of life and death, we may see connections to the past that we missed in life. In fact, the last hours of a dying person may be filled not with emptiness, but rather with fullness. David Kessler has been on Oprah and Friends and written for Anderson Cooper 360. His services have been used by Elizabeth Taylor, Jamie Lee Curtis and Marianne Williamson when their loved ones faced life challenging illnesses. He also worked with Anthony Perkins and Michael Landon when they faced their deaths. In this talk, he brings us stunning stories from the bedsides of the dying that will educate, enlighten, and comfort. For more information on David visit www.grief.com
The Core Balance Diet: Hormones, Metabolism, and Weight Loss
From the cofounder of Women to Women, one of the first clinics in the country devoted to providing health care for women by women, comes a whole new way to look at weight loss: The Core Balance Diet. Marcelle Pick draws upon decades of patient and personal experience to solve the mystery of stubborn, frustrating weight gain in women, whether you’ve just gained it or have been struggling with it for years. This breakthrough program, which has benefited many of the thousands of women who visit the clinic each year, is rooted in cutting-edge nutritional science that explores the weblike relationship between women’s hormones, adrenals, thyroid, neurotransmitters, metabolism, and weight gain. In clear terms, Marcelle connects the dots between self-knowledge, self-care, and the ability to lose weight, extending the concept of body-mind-spirit to demonstrate why and how a woman’s biography becomes her biology.
Brian Weiss, M.D.

Sacred Sex for the Twenty-first Century
Can you be both sexual and spiritual? Barbara Carrellas has spent her career encouraging people to discover their sensual natures while helping them to understand that there is no separation between sexual and spiritual energy. Barbara developed Urban Tantra® as an approach to sacred sexuality for the contemporary spiritual sensualist. On the Tantric path, pleasure, vision and ecstasy are celebrated rather than repressed. Tantra is not only a sexual practice, it also is a sensuous way of life and path to spiritual growth. In this workshop you’ll learn practical techniques for moving beyond guilt and shame into infinite erotic possibilities. You’ll take home easy-to-practice Tantric techniques for intense full-bodied orgasms, amazingly deep, heart-centered connections (with a partner or with yourself), and the bliss that comes when your spiritual and sexual paths are one.

Self-Esteem from your Soul – Unlocking your Intuition, Grace, and Destiny through a New Power of Human Potential
Developing self-esteem begins at birth and is based on what this world mirrors back to us about our worth. Yet are the ways we psychologically build our self-esteem via our environment enough to empower us to fulfill our highest potential in life—especially when most of us are taught by our environment and the media that we must aspire to be better to be worthy of our Destiny? Renowned intuitive Robert Ohotto has discovered that as human beings a new level of empowerment is awakening within us that is reshaping the purpose of our lives. However, to develop this new authenticity self-esteem must now come from our Soul. Join Robert for this ground breaking session and as he explores the difference between self-esteem and this new Mystical-Esteem. Learn how developing Mystical-Esteem can awaken your intuition, compassion, soul’s grace, and capacity to serve and transform the world. Discover how you can unleash the power of your soul and live the most potent Destiny your life was divinely designed for!

Marilyn Kagan & Neil Einbund
Defenders of the Heart: Managing the Habits and Attitudes That Block You from a Richer, More Satisfying Life
Your heart deserves the best protection possible, but you can’t lock it away for safekeeping. You must keep your heart in touch with the world: giving and receiving love and reaching out to embrace the people, activities, and causes that create a deeply rewarding life. In this truly transformative workshop, Marilyn Kagan, LCSW, and Neil Einbund, Ph.D., well-known therapists in the Los Angeles area, help you discover the common defense mechanisms we all use to guard our hearts against being hurt. Over time, these mechanisms, which the authors have coined “defenders of the heart,” can become habitual and overly entrenched. In one way or another, they are at the base of nearly all of our bouts with dissatisfaction. Defenders of the Heart delivers a strong basic understanding of these 10 strategies, shows how to recognize which of them are sabotaging your life, and offers a comprehensive tool to break free of their life-limiting powers. If you want to change your life, yet are too guarded to see the very obvious paths that are open before you, this workshop will guide you toward the glorious, awe-inspiring, and utterly fulfilled existence you’re striving for!
4:30 pm – 6:00 pm Afternoon Keynote:
Traveling at the Speed of Love
When we travel at the speed of love, we choose to live in a frequency of unconditional love. Today, most of us travel at the frequency of fear and live with a victim consciousness. When we’re traveling at the fear frequency, no matter how fast we go, we can never get to our destination. The victim consciousness is based on the premise: “I have no choice.” Traveling at the speed of love means taking our power back. We’re actually in a different universe when we travel at the speed of love. Our world is not a menacing, threatening race geared to cheat death. It becomes, at any moment, so satisfying that if this were our last moment on Earth, it would be okay. This is not to say that change is easy. To travel at the speed of love might require a complete paradigm shift in the way you look at your everyday existence. In this fascinating keynote, Sonia Choquette provides a practical, in-the-trenches guide that will reveal how you can reprogram your brain and change your life for the better. Ask yourself this question: What frequency are you traveling on right now?
8:00 pm – 9:30 pm Evening Keynote: Loretta LaRoche
LIGHTEN UP! The Authentic and Fun Way to Lose Your Weight and Your Worries
Loretta LaRoche is sick to death of diets and diet books. Not a day goes by without an article appearing in the media that reveals some food that could be harmful or helpful to our health.

As a result, we’re fatter than ever and more stressed out about being fat! In this humorous and informative lecture, Loretta cuts through the nonsense, disclosing the wisdom she has accumulated from “having gained and lost a tribe of people.” She also shares her expertise as an international stress consultant, former aerobics instructor, and owner of a wellness center. Her eight surprising secrets for reducing weight and stress might surprise you as she leads you down the path of learning to eat well, move with joy, and live a more balanced life.

Our Date with 2012: The Secret of Fractal Time and a New World Age

Fact: World Age endings in the past have triggered cataclysmic shifts that changed the face of the Earth and altered entire civilizations. Fact: The predictions for 2012 and what follows range from an era of chaos and destruction to a thousand years of peace and cooperation. What does 2012 mean for us today?

The Wisdom of Your Face: See Chinese Face Reading in Action!
Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to find out how the meaning of every feature of your face can help you live a more fulfilling, joyful and compassionate life. Chinese face reading considers your face to be a reflection of your inner blueprint – your true nature. By rediscovering your unique inner design, you can find the work that is your true calling, relationships that nurture you, and create your most happy and authentic life.

The Soul of Medicine
Through stories from Thomas Moore’s patients, doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers, Thomas speaks to the importance of healing a whole person—body, soul, and spirit, a person with emotions, history, family, and work rather than simply treating a body. He gives advice to both healthcare providers and patients for maintaining dignity and humanity during illness and treatment. Providing spiritual guidance for dealing with feelings of mortality and depression, Thomas encourages patients to not only take an active part in the healing process, but also to view illness as a positive passage to new awareness and possibilities for life. While we don’t fully understand the extent to which healing depends on attitude; a sense of meaning; a healing atmosphere; spirituality; and the support of family, friends, and community, it has been shown time after time that healing needs to focus on more than the body. The future of medicine is more than new technical developments and research discoveries; it lies also in appreciating the state of soul and spirit in illness!
Sandra Anne Taylor
The Truth About Attraction: Sorting Out the Lies from the Laws
Are you wondering why the Laws of Attraction don’t seem to be working for you? Are you tired of blaming yourself for everything that goes wrong? Well, it’s not your fault! There are many factors that influence the creation of your destiny, including: • natural life cycles; • shared consciousness; • environment; • karma; • soul’s intention. And you can learn how to deal with each one! In this truly unique workshop, Sandra Anne Taylor examines many of the influences affecting destiny creation, and separates the reliable facts from the confusing fiction that has built up around the Laws of Attraction. Offering a comprehensive understanding of why things really happen, this workshop will empower you to break through difficult cycles without self-recrimination, fear, or guilt. Your consciousness can change adversity! No matter what obstacles you may encounter, you can still achieve your financial, professional, and romantic goals—that is, as soon as you finally learn the truth about attraction. (It’s not what you think!)
The Art of Extreme Self-Care: Developing the Gift of Sensitivity
Do you sometimes wish that you were more thick-skinned? Were you taught to “suck it up” or to hide your sensitive side? If you’ve spent your life attempting to disown your sensitivity, you may be robbing yourself of the very thing that will allow you to live a rich and meaningful life. During this workshop, Cheryl Richardson, author of the new book, The Art of Extreme Self Care, will demonstrate the power of using our sensitivity in service to others. See for yourself the gifts that being sensitive has to offer and learn practical skills you can use today to begin protecting yours.
The Proof: A 40-Day Program for Embodying Oneness
The saints and mystics are unanimous in their belief that we are not the separate beings we believe ourselves to be, but that we are in reality—One. Best-selling author, filmmaker, and musician James Twyman tested this in a dramatic experiment that has inspired hundreds of thousands of people. A volunteer hid a book somewhere in the Continental U.S., and while that person focused on the location, James boarded a flight and found the actual hiding spot in Seattle, proving that thoughts can be shared and that we are not as isolated as we once thought. The Proof teaches how anyone can accomplish the same task, proving to themselves that separation really is an illusion. Through step-by-step instructions in this workshop, you’ll be able to tap into your own hidden power to achieve the miracles you only dreamed of before. James will also discuss the 40-day program for embodying Oneness in your life. This workshop is the doorway into a new world!
Initiation: The Shaman’s Way of Healing
Alberto Villoldo explores the shamanic art of transforming negative emotions such as anger and despair. Transformation is the most direct way we can heal the emotional wounds that would otherwise keep us locked in a cycle of self-inflicted suffering and personal crisis. Once initiated, we recover the passion and life force that we once squandered in anger, lust, or greed. We then invest this life force in our well-being, which enables us to discover our power instead of continuing to feel stuck or overwhelmed by life.

It’s Not the End of the World: Developing Resilience in Times of Change
The world is in crisis, but you don’t have to be. We all know resilient people who bounce back from hardship and create their best lives. That’s the promise of change. Other people stress out and melt down, losing hope and health. That’s the danger in times of change. The good news is that resilience isn’t a genetic gift for the lucky few. It’s an easily understood skill that anyone can practice and master. Resilient people face reality head-on, take action, find deeper meaning in life, laugh often, and are masters of improvisation. A new kind of natural selection is already having its way with us. Hopeful, stress-hardy people will rule the world. And as change and uncertainty escalate, those prone to stress will be less able to compete. In this workshop, Joan Borysenko, a world-renowned expert on stress, health, and human potential, offers you the tools you need to step into a bold new future that works for us all.
The Spark: The Secret Formula for Losing Weight, Getting Fit, and Transforming Your Life
In his upcoming book, The Spark, and in this session, Chris Downie condenses the best of a medically accepted, common sense nutrition and fitness program and infuses it with the SparkPeople magic in order to make it accessible, profound, and far-reaching in its scope and effectiveness. The core of the workshop and the underlying philosophy of the SparkPeople lifestyle is an innovative program of personal empowerment. It includes 4 cornerstones that make up the building blocks of living a “sparked” life:
• Focus is the ability to set priorities, live a life according to your values, and become clear about your vision and goals.
• Fitness is a physical and mental springboard that provides you the energy to reach your goals and trains you to think on your feet.
• Fire is the passion that is created by your actions and momentum. When you live with Fire, you see possibilities, not problems.
• Positive Force is what happens when you share your energy and success with others. The more you give, the more you get in return.
The second component, the 4-stage Spark Diet, is a customizable, step-by-step journey that offers the tools, confidence, and motivation to jump from simple dieting to a healthy way of life that allows you to reach not only your weight loss goals but much more. Sparkpeople.com was created by Chris Downie and currently receives over 4 million visitors per month.

The Won Thing: The “One” Secret to a Totally Fulfilling Life
What is the “one” secret to a successful, fulfilling life? Don’t we all want to know just that? Best-selling author and goal-achievement expert Peggy McColl spent many years pondering that question and searching for the answer. Her driving curiosity took her from inspirational books to self-help workshops and lectures, as she absorbed the best advice from dozens of highly successful people, each of whom had their own ideas about the “one” secret. Like many people who are searching for a sense of purpose, Peggy looked outside herself for guidance. She learned a great deal, creating a better life for herself as she applied the wise teachings of others, yet true happiness eluded her until she finally realized what the “one” thing actually was: everything she needed to know was within her already! In this fascinating workshop, Peggy shares the lessons she learned during her journey of self-discovery, and also shows you how to discover and realize your own dreams. Her intention is to awaken you to your innate ability to create and enjoy the secret recipe for fulfillment: your Won Thing!

Defy Gravity: Healing Beyond the Bounds of Reason
In this keynote, visionary author and intuitive Caroline Myss introduces the subject of her new book, Defy Gravity, which explores the mystical qualities involved in the experience of healing, instructing readers to move beyond the dilemma of needing to find logical reasons for why an illness has developed and instead get on with the task of personal transformation. Healing any illness or personal crisis is a complex undertaking, as will be discussed in this keynote, but as attendees will discover, many of the methods that are part of the holistic model remain inadequate in terms of assisting a person on complete recovery of health. The missing factor involves understanding the nature of mystical consciousness and how to transcend the limitations of ordinary thinking. Profound and lasting healings are, ultimately, mystical experiences that cannot be generated by the power of reason or the mind as the intellect is incapable of igniting a mystical experience. Mystical experiences are spontaneous occurrences of a highly Divine nature that originate within the soul and it is that source that also contains the capacity to heal illness. How to get beyond one’s power of reason and cross the threshold into the domain of one’s soul is a central theme of this keynote. Healing exercises and learning how to channel grace play a vital role.
