Saturday Morning Healing Circle

“Thank you for offering the Healing Circle. I was hesitant to attend yet so glad that I did. It opened me in ways I had been seeking for a long time” – MaryAnn H.

If you…

– are experiencing an unresolved mental, emotional or physical condition
– are seeking to initiate, sustain and support your deeper healing
– are willing to consider that the presence of your condition is actually in service to a healing beyond symptom removal

Then our Healing Circle is for you!

Sacred Touch shared from the Heart Center with its attributes of Compassion, Healing Presence, Innate Harmony and Unconditional Love. This is a bodyful experience which does not require any knowledge or experience with energy healing.

Our gathering offers experiences of giving and receiving healing energies inducted through intentionality and the art of sacred touch. Group members will be guided to engage the Healing Presence by shifting from their ordinary states of consciousness to those resourced by the Divine. Those currently facing any health or emotional challenge, family members and friends are also welcome to attend. No experience necessary!

Currently there is a maximum of 9 participants for the Healing Circle so that each person has time receiving from the group. Participants come from my Meetup group (Consciousness, Dreamwork & Healing), Eventbrite as well as individual clients and client referrals so the “total ticket” quantity shown herein is not reflective of the total number of participants for the event. If this event is sold out here at Eventbrite, please contact me at jon@jonmcintosh.com and I will make adjustments if I am able.

No prerequisite is required. Comfortable clothing and an open heart recommended. Please refrain from the use of perfumes or colognes as they may be distracting for other circle attendees

Tranquil Wellness Center is located on the second floor of the Crystal Gardens Office Building which is just west (behind) the Red Lobster Restaurant. Enter the easternmost entrance of office building via the outside staircase by Nails 2000 and the bookstore. Follow the hallway to the right to the conference room. There will be signs to guide you.

Relationships and Healing – Integrating Mind/Body/Soul/Spirit

Relationships and their challenges are grounded in the internal relationship between male and female aspects of psyche and soul and play out in waking state reality. Understanding how the male basic self, female basic self, animus and anima relate to one another and expanding our awareness of these aspects through shifting states of consciousness is essential to healing. This internal harmony is then reflected in our external relationships as we experience a more natural balance, compatibility and attractiveness that powerfully transcends the outer physical form.

You will learn…

• Aspects of Psyche (archetype) of the internal masculine (animus) and the internal feminine (anima) and how they inform our relationships with friends, co-workers, lovers, spouse
• Aspects of Soul in the form of Male Basic Self, Female Basic Self and Mental Judge Self and how they inform our relationships with friends, co-workers, lovers, spouse
• The levels of growth and development, expression and integration of these aspects
• How projection of our own unconscious material onto the “other” sets the stage for discontent, conflict and pain yet also provides opportunity for resolution and expanded awareness
• How we treat our inner selves is reflected in how we experience relationship
• How to expand and shift your states of consciousness to move past wounding, reactivity, victim consciousness
• How dreams provide us relationship guidance
• How binary thinking (right and wrong, good, and bad, should and shouldn’t) can be a relationship killer
• How Unconditional Love and an initiated Heart Center can engage, embrace and harmonize the most challenging aspects of any relationship
• How the ego’s agents of comparison, criticism and judgment reflect unconscious and unresolved material within
• How image management veils unconscious fears
• How to know when a relationship no longer serves
• How knowing yourself more fully makes you a better partner

You will also experience…
• Real life examples of relationship transformation
• A guided meditation which initiates and expands awareness and integration of your internal masculine and feminine energies
• A question and answer period to address individual concerns and circumstances

– No prerequisite necessary
– This workshop does not represent, require or endorse or exclude any particular religious affiliation

Healing Circle – Special Edition

This Special Edition of the Healing Circle is being offered exclusively for those who have not previously attended our Healing Circle AND who are facing a significant health (physical or emotional) challenge.

Only 5 spaces are being made available as we focus our intention on both initiating a change of state of consciousness (essential to healing) and experiencing hands-on energy healing in the form of Sacred Touch.

Our last regular Healing Circle had several more participants than RSVP’s so please RSVP soon if you want to reserve your space.

Our bodies often carry unconscious energies in the form of disease and other challenges to our well-being. We can treat the symptoms all we want (like trying to turn off an uncooperative smoke alarm) but until we address the deeper material (the fire) we miss the opportunity for authentic healing.

We will experience Sacred Touch shared from the Heart Center with its attributes of Compassion, Healing Presence, Innate Harmony and Unconditional Love. This is a bodyful experience which does not require any knowledge or experience with energy healing. Group members will be guided to engage the Healing Presence by shifting from their ordinary states of consciousness to those resourced by the Divine. No experience necessary.

No prerequisite is required. Comfortable clothing and an open heart recommended. Please refrain from the use of perfumes or colognes as they may be distracting for other circle attendees.

The Healing Circle is not intended to be a substitute for the diagnosis or treatment any medical or psychological condition whatsoever.


Healing from the Heart Center – Body, Mind, Soul and Spirit

“I’ve been searching to find a way through the pain and suffering, the disappointments and the losses. Your Heart Center workshop gave me a new way to see my life and how each and every experience offers an opportunity for healing.” – Tricia K.

“Thank you for sharing this work. It truly is life renovating once we get past, as you say, our “filters of surface consciousness”. I am so grateful I met you.” – Vanessa N.

An awakened Heart Center is an essential component of authentic healing of body, mind, soul and spirit. The Heart Center is inclusive and integrative. It makes no comparisons, no judgments and requires no performance or competency. It is the ultimate expression of Unconditional Love and allows us to occupy our Soul in extraordinary ways. An awakened Heart Center is the doorway to our true Self.

The Heart Center is the Ultimate Healer…
•Learn how to more fully open your Heart Center and enter Presence, the real Power of Now

This approach to the Heart Center was originated by W. Brugh Joy MD, Mystic, Healer, Teacher and Author in the mid-1970’s. In my 20 years of work wth Brugh, we included an awakened Heart Center and Heart Center Meditation as a portal through the personal ego to direct connection with the Divine. From this place we are resourced to engage, navigate, redeem and celebrate Life’s most difficult challenges.

In this workshop we will also learn and practice the Heart Center Meditation and commune with the feeling state experiences of each of the four attributes of the Heart Center…Compassion, Healing Presence, Innate Harmony and Unconditional Love and their individual meaning and expression in our lives.

We will have time to address individual health challenges, conflicts, blockages, etc. and how to engage and redeem them with a Heart Centered approach.

This workshop has been the initiation for many on the path of authentic healing of body, mind, sound and spirit. Come join us for this special opportunity to connect deeply with your Self and Soul!

Mindfulness Meditation (and More!) Workshop

By giving your full attention to this moment, an intelligence far greater than the egoic mind enters your Life – Eckhart Tolle

No prerequisite necessary. Beginning meditators encouraged to attend!

Mindfulness meditation offers the opportunity of bringing attention to present experience, wondrously deepening those experiences and moving through the mind’s entanglements with past and future. A mindful approach, as initiated by mindfulness meditation practice, renovates and renews our day-to-day experiences and provides benefits which include stress and anxiety reduction and profound en-joy-ment.

Mindlessness meditation offers the opportunity of moving through all of the mind’s entanglements, of letting go of all that is noticed in order to connect with the deeper Self and Soul. Mindlessness meditation practice inducts us into a peace beyond all understanding, of the experience of essential Being.

We will explore both mindfulness and mindlessness meditation with both instruction and meditative experiences. We will also learn about Transcendental Meditation®, guided meditation, Vipassana Meditation, Sum Faht Meditation and Heart Center Meditation as originated by W. Brugh Joy, MD.

PAUSE – CENTER – SHIFT

The practice of entering any type of meditation supports changing states of consciousness, an essential skill in learning to disidentify from our problems and  accompanying anxiety in order to connect more deeply.

OPEN AND ALLOW

Meditation helps us learn how to be profoundly receptive and in accord with all that is, to be set free from the control, criticism and judgment attributes of ego.

Self Healing II – Soul & Spirit

This two-hour workshop focuses on soul and spirit for self-healing.

Our embodied life on this earth is how our soul, as messenger of spirit, is provided the opportunity to evolve through experiences which include conflict and crises, accidents, disease, relationship struggles and pain and suffering. We may hear and even agree that “it’s not what happens to us, it’s how we respond to what happens” yet often it is not clear how to respond in an expanded or new way, a way in which things really change, really get better.

Distilled from more than 30 years of exploration a breadth of approaches and experiences which help to initiate and support healing of mind, body and soul will be presented. This workshop is intended for those who…

• Are willing to challenge conventional beliefs about health and healing
• Are seeking alternative/complementary approaches to conflict, health challenges, illness, disease
• Wish to expand their consciousness and augment their journey of Self-Discovery
• Wish to explore deeper meaning in their lives and find an answer to questions such as…

• Why am I here? What is my purpose?
• Why is there so much pain and suffering in the world?
• How do I find meaning in Life?

You will learn…
• How health challenges, disease, illness present the opportunity to authentically heal mind, body and soul
• How our state of consciousness informs our health and the depth and breadth of our life experience
• How our bodies often carry our unconscious material in the form of disease, conflict, crises, accidents, etc.
• How to connect and commune with soul as messenger of spirit
• How to evaluate the approaches which will aid your individual journey of Self-Discovery and authentic health

Self-healing topics and approaches presented include…

• Soul Contracts (a template was made before we were born!)
• Dream Translation/Interpretation (to unveil messages from the soul)
• Entheogens (substances that induce spiritual experience)
• Soul work and shifting/expanding states of consciousness (the hows and whys)
• Channeled guidance / Psychic material (and the importance of grounding this guidance)

Please join us for this depression dive into soul and spirit.

Birthing the Life You Are Meant to Live in 2018!

(photo used by permission)

Open to 2018 as the year of reconnection to your larger Self and Soul!

No matter our age, many of us live our lives in containers which were shaped before we had much opportunity for conscious awareness. We defined ourselves by who and what were not like, not by who and what we are. We conformed to the expectations of others…parents, siblings, teachers, bosses, friends, lovers, spouses. We learned to never upset the apple cart too much or there was a price to pay. We made “deals” to be loved and sometimes, just to survive.

The earlier training which helped form our sense of self swims deep within and informs our lives in both subtle and spectacular ways. For us to break free from this containment requires that we learn to shift our state of consciousness and leave behind that which may no longer serve us.

You Will Learn…

-how to identify Self-limiting thought forms, beliefs, feelings and stories
-how to transform thought forms, beliefs, feelings and stories
-how to set yourself free to become more of who and what you are
-how to value and redeem everything that has happened to you in your life (and I mean everything)
-what you soul seeks from you in this lifetime
-simple rituals to call forth energies to initiate, support and sustain your expanded Self.
-why affirmations and resolutions often fail
-how change through deprivation of parts of self rarely succeeds and why
-how to enter 2018 with a sense of renewed joy and re-birth!

Come join us for some end of year fun as we explore your Life 2.0!

No prerequisite is required.


Sex and Power – When (Good) People Do Bad Things

The recent news events uncovering conduct labelled from “inappropriate behavior” to “sexual predation” sets the stage for a profound opportunity for healing (wholeness) of the individual and the collective…yet there is no guarantee of this healing.  Unless we are also able to acknowledge and understand that the perpetrator/victim state of consciousness is but one step on the journey we often become distracted by the public outing of the accused while missing the teachings made available by the processes which underlie these revelations.

Over recent decades we have witnessed many events which continue to collapse domains where masculine power is often inflated and sometimes misused…especially law and medicine.  There appears to be a collective intention stirring which seeks a more natural balance of Masculine and Feminine energies.  Consistent with this intention we will explore approaches which support and enhance the expansion of our individual and collective awareness.

Topics include…
-when power serves as a compensation for inadequacy
-sex and power and how they are overtly and subtly conflated
-projection as unconscious identification with disowned aspects of Self
-how these woundings serve both wound deliverer and wound receiver
-how these woundings provide opportunities for healing

This workshop will include a discussion of how use of power has manifest in our own experiences.

This workshop is not offered as an academic or psychologically sophisticated approach to this material.  Rather we are looking to explore our own individual consciousness and the relationship of the collective consciousness to this matter in the context of the ultimate healer, Unconditional Love.

Mindlessness meditation practice inducts us into a peace beyond all understanding, of the experience of essential Being.

The Healing Power of Illness (and How Our Bodies Carry Our Shadow)

“I understand and appreciate that you were expertly trained in mopping but let’s find someone who knows how to turn the faucet off!”

Disease and illness, crises, injury and emotional trauma represent much more than just their medical, physiological and psychological components.  Yet almost all of our attention and resources are poured into treatment (removal of symptoms) with little or no exploration of how illness and other crises serve the unfoldment of our Soul.

Back in the 80’s, Bernie Siegel MD wrote about patients who said that cancer was the best thing to ever happen to them.  They learned to engage cancer as a message, not something to fight.  It is in our unconscious nature to seek ego empowerment in the face of profound powerlessness and vulnerability yet that is one of the profound lessons offered by the Soul when we are faced with such a challenge.

These challenges are symbols of unconscious processes which seek our attention, acknowledgement and integration.  Karol Truman describes feelings buried alive which never die.  To appreciate these opportunities, with their accompanying pain and suffering, we must open the aperture of our consciousness and look deeply into our lives.  Join me as we journey into our authentic selves and explore the healing power of illness.

This meeting will include a confidential sharing of the challenges we are facing, a consideration of their deeper meaning, and an understanding of how they serve each of us.  I will share my own journey concerning prostate cancer.

For those who RSVP, in the week before this event please ask for a dream which addresses your deeper healing and bring that with you.  We also use dreams as a language of the soul and if there is time, we will explore the guidance they offer.

Adventures in Consciousness – Living Your Soul’s Purpose

Let’s journey together into a deeper understanding of Life and how our personal challenges and woundings provide opportunities for profound transformation and living your soul’s purpose.

We will learn how aspects of personal defenses, acute and chronic illness, accidents, instinctual energies, job challenges and loss, personal problems and relationship challenges serve the unfoldment of our souls and provide opportunities for authentic healing.

We will explore Heart Center meditation, biofeedback, intuitive guidance, oracles (Tarot, I Ching) and shifting states of consciousness to gain perspective and understanding.

We will introduce the four attributes of the Heart Center as an essential gateway into engaging deeper material, dreamwork as a privileged unveiling of the psyche, shadow work as necessary for the path to wholeness and humor as a way to enjoy all of it!

Calm in the Midst of Chaos-A Heart Centered Approach to Life and Living

Living from The Heart Center is the Ultimate Healer… 

•Learn how to more fully open your Heart Center and enter Presence, the real Power of Now
•Learn how an awakened Heart Center is essential for authentic healing to wholeness
•Learn about and experience Heart Center Meditation and its attributes of Compassion, Healing Presence, Innate Harmony and Unconditional Love
•Learn and experience how to engage, navigate, redeem and celebrate Life’s most difficult challenges from the Heart Center

…and Heart Center Meditation is your passport!

An awakened Heart Center an essential component of authentic healing of body, mind, soul and spirit.  The Heart Center is inclusive and integrative.  It makes no comparisons, no judgments and requires no performance or competency.  It is the ultimate expression of Unconditional Love and allows us to occupy our Soul in extraordinary ways.  Heart Center Meditation is a doorway to our true Self.

The Heart Center Meditation was originated by W. Brugh Joy MD, Mystic, Healer, Teacher and Author in the mid-1970’s. In my 20 years of work wth Brugh, we practiced Heart Center Meditation as a portal through the personal ego to direct connection with the Divine. From this place we are resourced to engage, navigate, redeem and celebrate Life’s most difficult challenges…and I mean every challenge, conflict and crisis.

In this workshop we will learn and practice the Heart Center Meditation and commune with the feeling state experiences of each of the four attributes of the Heart Center…Compassion, Healing Presence, Innate Harmony and Unconditional Love and their individual meaning and expression in our lives.

We will have time to work with the Heart Centered approach to individual life challenges (health, relationship, etc.) to provide participants with practical guidance and consideration of how our lives serve the unfoldment of our souls. What we discuss at this Meetup stays at this Meetup.  Honoring confidentiality is essential to this sacred container for healing.

Come join us for this special opportunity to connect deeply!

When:  No sessions currently scheduled.


Dreamwork: The Healing Laboratory

Expanding upon my November 10th presentation to this Loveland Meetup Group on “Dreamwork: Its Relationship to Healing and Wellness” after a brief review we’re going to dive into actual dream interpretation as a doorway to the opportunity for profound healing.

Let’s consider/remember that our wondrous body is actually a “speaker system” for our Soul, a living movie screen which collects and reflects our Soul’s expression. Accidents, crises, illnesses…all those things which the ego believes should not have happened or should not be happening are actually profound opportunities for much deeper healing if we can engage, honor and redeem the transpersonal forces which they reflect. Only a privileged few of us ever learn how these life challenges serve our Soul’s unfoldment.

Dreams give us both valuable clues and provide healing. As our psyches seek a healing balance they present patterns of energy using symbol. To the extent we develop the relationship to our deeper selves through dreamwork we come to know more of who and what we are, an essential step in healing to wholeness.

Between now and our meetup on February 9th, each night before bed, set the intention for a healing dream to be remembered in the morning. Have pen and paper or your phone (to record) ready and waiting. Bring that dream or those dreams to our Meetup session and consider sharing. Jon will call upon the dream interpreter within and offer whatever guidance may be available along with offerings from participants.

When:  No sessions currently scheduled.

Mindfulness and Mindlessness Meditation Workshop

By giving your full attention to this moment, an intelligence far greater than the egoic mind enters your Life – Eckhart Tolle

No prerequisite necessary. Beginning meditators encouraged to attend!

Mindfulness meditation offers the opportunity of bringing attention to present experience, wondrously deepening those experiences and moving through the mind’s entanglements with past and future. A mindful approach, as initiated by mindfulness meditation practice, renovates and renews our day-to-day experiences and provides benefits which include stress and anxiety reduction and profound en-joy-ment.

Mindlessness meditation offers the opportunity of moving through all of the mind’s entanglements, of letting go of all that is noticed in order to connect with the deeper Self and Soul. Mindlessness meditation practice inducts us into a peace beyond all understanding, of the experience of essential Being.

We will explore both mindfulness and mindlessness meditation with both instruction and meditative experiences. We will also touch upon guided meditation, Vipassana mediation and Heart-Centered meditation as originated by W. Brugh Joy, MD.

PAUSE – CENTER – SHIFT
The practice of entering any type of meditation supports changing states of consciousness, an essential skill in learning to disidentify from our problems and worries and to connect more deeply.

OPEN AND ALLOW
Meditation helps us learn how to be profoundly receptive and in accord with all that is, to be set free. No resistance.

When:  No sessions currently scheduled.


Adventures in Consciousness – Living Your Soul’s Purpose

Let’s journey together into a deeper understanding of Life and how our personal challenges and woundings provide opportunities for profound transformation and living your soul’s purpose.

We will learn how aspects of personal defenses, acute and chronic illness, accidents, instinctual energies, job challenges and loss, personal problems and relationship challenges serve the unfoldment of our souls and provide opportunities for authentic healing.

We will explore meditation, biofeedback, intuitive guidance, oracles and shifting states of consciousness to gain perspective and understanding.

We will introduce the four attributes of the Heart Center as an essential gateway into engaging deeper material, dreamwork as a privileged unveiling of the psyche, shadow work as necessary for the path to wholeness and humor as a way to enjoy all of it!

When:  No sessions currently scheduled.


Harnessing the Power of Placebo (or How to Heal Yourself from the Inside Out)

Depression, knee pain, cancer and many other conditions have been healed by placebos.  What is going on here?  How can this be true?

A key to the “effectiveness” of placebos is understanding the beliefs and state of consciousness of the placebo recipients.  Join me as we discuss how we can use the power of the placebo effect for our own healing and the healing of others.

When:  No sessions currently scheduled.


Open Heart Night (an Open House for Our Hearts)

Bring your pains, sufferings, losses, sins, difficult behaviors and other burdens as I guide a journey of understanding of their service to our soul’s growth.  Through acknowledgement and validation, understanding and meaning of our diverse and oftentimes difficult paths we will induct the resources of the Heart Center – compassion, healing presence, innate harmony, unconditional love – in support of our transformative processes.

Everyone carries a Shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. At all counts, it forms an unconscious snag, thwarting our most well-meant intentions.” – Carl Jung

When:  No sessions currently scheduled.


The Meaning of Illness (or Why is This Happening to Me?)

Disease and illness, crises, injury and emotional trauma represent much more than just their medical and psychological components.  Yet almost all of our attention and resources are poured into treatment with little or no exploration of how illness and other crises serve our development.

These challenges are symbols of unconscious processes which seek our attention, acknowledgement and integration.  To appreciate these opportunities, with their accompanying pain and suffering, we must open the aperture of our consciousness and look deeply into our lives.  Join me as we journey into our authentic selves.

This meeting will be a confidential sharing of the challenges we are facing, a consideration of their deeper meaning, and an understanding of how they serve each of us.  You will come away with an appreciation that Life is providing exactly what you need! (though likely not what you want)

When:  No sessions currently scheduled.


Healing Chronic Disease – A One-Night Free Class

“With manifestation of disease the body is reflecting to us that which we are not carrying consciously” – W. Brugh Joy, MD, Teacher, Healer and Author

Those of us with chronic health challenges do our best to cope with taking care of ourselves while attending to our relationship and work responsibilities.  Often we have little energy remaining at the end of the day to consider the underlying meaning of our disease or illness and that there may be an opportunity for profound healing beyond traditional medical and alternative/complementary treatment.

Yet some of us are learning that authentic healing comes from looking deeply inside through consciousness work, dreamwork and body/disease symbology and that there is hope to heal ourselves to wholeness.

When:  No sessions currently scheduled.
