“The Deeksha Oneness Blessing is a very powerful transfer of energy for awakening into higher states of consciousness, and over time is designed to bring about a state of Oneness in yourself and with all life! This happens through a neuro-biological rewire change in the brain, that when complete enables the senses to be free from the interference of the ego-mind. A natural clarity then occurs with spontaneous feelings of joy, inner calm and connection to the Oneness in everything. You experience life as it actually is. ‘Deeksha’ in Sanskrit means ‘benediction’. The Deeksha Oneness Blessing has been brought to the world at this time of transformation as a catalyst for the awakening of human consciousness.” Much scientific research is being done regarding its effects on the physiology of the brain, and its impact on well-being and consciousness.”

Through lecture, discussion, meditation, exercises and other deepening processes, you will:
* Learn how to move into higher states of consciousness, and awaken and experience the Divinity within
* Connect and relate more deeply to your experience of the Divine, and make that a real and living relationship for you
* Release old emotional charges, heal relationships, and resolve negative emotional and mental patterning
* Move beyond the habitual, limiting patterns of the mind into states of greater Oneness, joy, peace and silence
This will help open the way to deeper love with others and yourself, and support the fulfillment of your life goals.
You will also receive many Oneness Blessings throughout the weekend.
The workshop culminates with you being initiated as a Oneness Blessing Giver.

* The Oneness University teaches that each Awakened person impacts 100,000 people. Thus, the gift of moving into an Awakened state is not only that you become more peaceful and present, but that your state of consciousness contributes to the expansion and well-being of the Whole. It is imperative at this crucial and challenging time in our collective history that we become as clear, awake, peaceful and of service as possible.

So . . . If not now, when? If not you, who?

“I awoke this morning to silence. A silence so welcomed. A silence so long-sought.
Gone is the incessant chatter, the constant droning of irrelevant talk and programmed criticisms.
My brain/head is silent and my being is calm, content and comfortable.”

INFORM… It is often said that if you take one step towards God, God will take a hundred steps towards you . . .  Johanna will share with us a simple, profound transference of Divine Energy, called Deeksha, the Oneness Blessing. The purpose of this blessing is to Awaken in us the experience of Oneness. Sourced in Divine Intelligence, and completely non-denominational, it allows each of us to deepen our relationships with ourselves, those we love, humanity, and our own personal experience of the Divine.

INSPIRE… The Oneness Blessing initiates a neurobiological change in the brain that, when complete, enables the senses to be free from the interference of the thinking mind and its interpretations. When this occurs, you experience a natural clarity of perception, with accompanying spontaneous feelings of joy, inner calmness, connection, and an expanding and deepening sense of inner peace.

ENTERTAIN… Come experience the beauty of this energy!  And enjoy fabulous music by Doug Fulton—singer, songwriter, sound healer.
