Deeksha Blessing and Meditation   

Thursday, June 7 & 20 @ 6:00 – 7:30pm with Jane Hale

Jane Hale traveled to India in 2006 to receive training and initiation from Sri Amma-Bhagavan, the founders of the Oneness Blessing, also known as “Deeksha”. Deeksha is a transmission of divine energy which begins a process of neuro-biological shifts within the brain. When linear information in the parietal lobes is reduced, the recipient can feel a sense of boundless awareness and connection. Each transmission helps recipients learn to embody the great silence and peace, linking each of us to a more universal experience. Jane has been facilitating Deeksha in various settings, including the Higher Self Bookstore, for more than 13 years. In addition, she offers classes and sessions in T’aiji Gong, Movement Therapy and other healing arts.

Cost: $15 Minimum Donation

  • Saturday 10am-5pm: Unlocking Your Personal Power
  • Sunday 10am-4pm: Using Power Properly


In this weekend workshop, we will take a deep look at using and reclaiming personal power and the proper use of power in an empowering and new way using shamanic concepts and methodologies. This workshop will introduce you to the technique of Guided Journeying and we will use this technique to understand what power is, how it is taken away from us, how we give it away, how we can reclaim it and the misuse of power.  Within this context we will look at FEAR and it’s affect on power.  We will explore dignity and worthiness and how this steals our power, we will look take a deep look at who we are, not to change ourselves but to accept who we are in this moment.  When we accept ourselves, we can then learn how to become spiritually ground and begin to control our mind.  We will learn classic techniques of power retrievals and we will explore the misuse of the divine feminine and divine masculine power in our daily lives and the world around us.  A more detailed description is available on our website.  Investment: $200
