It guides and empowers you through a unique combination of processes, concepts, and excercises to go beyond self limiting patterns and discover your power, your expression, and fullfillment.


Beauty, Transformation, And Death


Autumn always reminds me of the necessity of death for the sake of renewal. Have you noticed that just before the leaves die and drop to the ground, the trees are covered by striking colors of gold and red shimmering in the light? I call this the moment of their enlightenment, it is as if the leaves know that they are dying and are bursting with the last drop of life, celebrating their life and their death, both at once. I imagine that they feel they will join the earth and live in another form. It seems like nature knows that "death" is necessary to renewal. What we see as death is a just a transformation from one state of existence to another. Maybe that is why autumn feels to me like a celebration of letting go, all with glorious colors and amazing beauty. We can all learn from nature to trust the little or big "deaths" in our lives, the shedding of the old. If we can let go, we can renew and heal.

Fall is the perfect time for transformation!  All the components for change are in the air!  Our bodies are invigorated by the cooler air and change in seasons.  Time is shifting and so is our awareness.

As I walk through the woods feeling the cool crisp air against my cheeks, the smell of freshly fallen leaves and the comfort of a warm sweater against my skin awakens my senses and reminds me of what it feels like to be alive!  It is in these moments I am truly experiencing life!

All these wonderful sensations lead me to experience the moment wholly throughout my body.  I become fully present and aware of all that I am and all that is around me.  I am in the moment.  It is in this stillness that I can be grateful for who I am and where I am headed.  It is in this moment of utter gratitude I have the opportunity to let it guide me in creating the life I want.  It is in this moment I remember I am not alone, but closest to all opportunities and things.

In this moment I am in a state of alignment, free, peaceful, and trusting.

- Nomi

The Healing Power of Meditation

Lead by Nomi Bachar



This workshop is appropriate for all levels of meditation practitioners. In the workshop we will explore:


v What is true meditation?


v What are the three levels of the mind and how do we move from the obsessive mind to the Zen Mind?


v What are the benefits of meditation?


Our daily thinking mind tends to be obsessive and compulsive, affectionately called The Monkey Mind. It keeps us agitated, restless, in a state of mild anxiety, ungrounded, and unable to be and enjoy the moment. In this workshop we will explore the three levels of the mind, The Monkey Mind, The Creative Mind, and The Zen Mind. You will learn to identify them, move through them, and abide in the stillness of the Zen Mind. We will discuss the benefits of meditation and participants will get guidelines to create or deepen their meditation practice.

Level 1, Two Day* Workshop

Stepping Into The Gates of Power®




This experiential workshop uses a host of exercises and processes to help participants begin their journey through the Gates of Power®. During this workshop, participants will choose and explore a central theme of life that presents a challenge to them (for example, low self esteem, deep rooted fears, lack of motivation, fear of intimacy, etc.). The workshop will assist participants to focus and understand the root cause of the problem and will demonstrate how they can begin to shift this theme.


In this workshop you will learn

  • To identify the three aspects of the self: Emotional Self, Defensive Self, and Expanded Self.
  • How to use internal dialog between the three aspects to create inner unity and inner power.
  • How the difficult theme in your life expresses itself in the Seven Gates (the seven facets of your being).
  • How to formulate an empowering daily practice to liberate, heal, and energize the self.

*This workshop only includes the first day of Level 1


When: Sunday, November 24, 10am - 6pm
