https---cdn.evbuc.com-images-51053105-180962154575-1-original.jpg

Awakening Consciousness Presents

Art as a Mirror in the Process of Healing - A Guided Visit to LACMA

$25 (Price includes admission to the LACMA)

Join us for an inspirational, social and fulfilling afternoon of personal development through art. After a brief introduction, the tour will begin in the gallery that houses the collection of European Art and focuses on the symbolism of Christian art to explore how those symbols can be a mirror of our own psychological state and assist in the process of healing. 

Sabine will guide you on how to experience these art pieces with your heart and connect with beauty in a way that might surprise you. This art talk introduces you to techniques that help you resonate with that which is divine in the art. The historical, religious, and artistic significance of each piece is woven into the talk, but not its main focus. This gallery tour is about how you can use a philosophers lens to bring healing and other universal truths be relevant to your daily life.

After the gallery talk, you are invited to join for a continuation of the discussion and/or to ask questions at the dining tables outside the concession areas.

$25 (Price includes admission to the LACMA)

We will meet at the outside tables between galleries behind lampost installation 15 min before we begin.

Members, Students, and Seniors, please contact awakeningconsciousnessnow@gmail.com for payment information.

An audience with Sri Jayanthi Kumaraswami

eventbriteDIALOGUE6.jpg

Her Divine Grace Sri Jayanthi Kumaraswami is love and divinity personified. Sri Jayanthi, lovingly called Swamiji, is a modern day Guru (spiritual guide), seer, humanitarian, philosopher and healer. Swamiji is the Founder and President of the Sri Jai Sathya Mission (based in Chennai); an international charitable Trust which assist less privileged families, youth in education, women counseling, animal welfare and much more. Her Divine Grace is also the Founder and Spiritual Leader of a Hindu religious movement namely Om Namo Narayana Seva Samiti.

What we think is the Truth, is not. What is the Truth? We do not know. Swamiji’s knowledge is an ocean of Divine secrets. God knows everything. God can lecture on any topic without preparation. Like this, Swamiji knows everything; both divine and about this worldly life. She can spontaneously answer any question. Swamiji took birth to teach us the reality of human life and spirituality. Her teachings are ideal for people of different religions. Seekers of Truth from around the World come to Swamiji for answers. Swamiji’s teachings have brought peace to the minds of individuals in every corner of the World. She is here to teach Mankind the true way of living. Her teachings guide every human being onto their respective path in life. Swamiji will explain, with great detail, the duty of man; the agriculturalist, the housewife, the son, the Government minister etc.

Swamiji’s teachings will bring peace of mind to the individual and give purpose for living in this material World. Swamiji says, “Sometimes the questions are complicated but the answers are simple.” Swamiji approaches Her audience at their level of understanding. In this way, they can easily absorb the nectar of Her philosophy. Swamiji enjoys teaching children, young adults as well as elders. Swamiji says, “Understanding, acceptance and adjustment are the need of this hour.” These three words are the answers to any chaotic situation. One pillar of Swamiji’s philosophy is simply laughter. “Laughter is one tool to attain God,” says Swamiji.

Swamiji urges Man to carefully observe every moment of life, focus on everlasting happiness- therefore rediscovering the God within each and every one of us. She proves, with Her words and advice, that God is omnipresent, Omniscient and omnipotent. Swamiji’s philosophy encourages a clean and fertile environment. She shares the directives to reverse Global Warming by boosting the agricultural system, keeping our drainage and roads clean and being vegetarian. Swamiji reiterates to Mankind that, “Your stomach is not a burial ground.” Swamiji preaches the importance of maintaining a vegetarian diet for the survival of the animals around us, as well as the cleansing of our own karma. Swamiji is here to declare what is Truth. Therefore, She explains that every living creature has a purpose, including the earthworms, the dog, the cow and the human being. All in creation must live in harmony; hence we must take heed in Swamiji’s teachings.

As mentioned before, Swamiji has no gurus. No one taught Her the philosophy of life and Divinity. Therefore, you cannot find this philosophy of life anywhere but at the feet of Sri Jayanthi Kumaraswami. No literature in the past can match Swamiji’s words. Swamiji’s teachings are suitable for living life in the present, in this fast developing concrete jungle. Swamiji guides Her followers through this age of technology. Her Holiness frequently gives lectures on different topics. In addition, Swamiji allows Her audience to ask questions during Q&A sessions. Swamiji’s unique approach to spirituality also attracts children. She lectures children of different ages separately. Swamiji expects that every member of Her audience is attentive while She lectures so that they can benefit from Her words. If Mankind accepts and follow Swamiji’s simple guidelines, then everything in this universe will be in harmony.

A DIALOGUE WITH HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS

  • 35 Park Road London, England, NW1 6XT United Kingdom (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
eventbriteDIALOGUE1.jpg

Tonight you have a unique opportunity to be immersed in the divine wisdom and love which emanates from a consciousness beyond separate identity and have a dialogue with that higher consciousness. Whether you require insight on any subject or just want to sit in silence the inner transformation is palpable.

Most times in life it is our thoughts and emotions which prevent us from experiencing joy and love in any situation. With so many different thoughts it becomes difficult to identify exactly what it is you are doing or thinking that is at the root cause of your unhappiness, confusion or it just may be that you are looking for something but you don't know what until you find it. This is your opportunity to attain clarity and guidance from a consciousness of profound clarity and wisdom - you will be left in no doubt that transformation is not only possible but is happening within the dialogue.

Leave feeling renewed, re-energized, and experience the personal enrichment and freedom you seek.

Alison Murtough is an expert in her field facilitating transformation in peoples’ lives. She has been a channel of 'Master' (the teacher of Lao Tzu) since March 2008 and has self-published two books of simple yet profound content. 

For more information please visit www.voicesofthesoul.com

One of Master’s quotes: “The voices of the soul belong to you, they are the part of you that did not forget love. They are eternal wisdom and show you the way back to your heart.”

About Time: An introduction to shamanism and its relevance to the present day.

About Time.jpg

Currently there is a shift as to where we are looking to bring meaning, enjoyment and significance into our lives. There is a looking back to the traditions of our ancestors. A deep, present outward gaze towards intact indigenous cultures, as well as a peering into an unknown future. In this we are endeavouring to bring ourselves to a point of balance with an understanding of the present moment. 

Within the Shamanic Way of Being, this bending of time occurs in order to bring healing and eventually wisdom. To those individuals in need, to the land and for the world as a whole. 

Natalie Vickers invites you to step into a small piece of this liminal space, through story telling, sound and a shamanic experience. She offers you a door, into which you can experience why shamanism is still pertinent in our modern lives.

Natalie has been listening to stories of what it is to be human for nearly 30 years. As a shamanic healer, homeopath and body worker, she has also trained with a number of shamans in different parts of the world from differing traditions. 

She works in the UK and Germany, offering direct experiential workshops,  trainings and initiations into the shamanic way. Her work takes her onto the land where she encourages others to foster connections with nature, through medicine walks, ceremony and ritual. She is passionate about the necessity for adult initiations and conscious choosing, as the way to living a good life. She is also a wilderness guide offering vision quests both in the UK and other parts of the world.
