The Renaissance of Spirit Weekends
Event Details

One of the most provocative and evocative processes that Dr. Houston has evolved is the capacity to move back in time to influence significant events in your life, and move forward in your life, bringing with you a pattern for what you vision creating. 

So much of our lives retain the echoes of stories from childhood, adolescence and adulthood.  These stories are repeated over and over on a subconscious level affecting our decisions, responses and actions.  You’ll learn how to plant a version of personal “termas”, or in the Tibetan definition, “hidden treasures”, in your mind for access when needed.  The version developed by Dr. Houston has a powerful impact by clarifying intention and its manifestation.

In this powerful weekend, you will discover how your past threads into your present and learn how to move back into your early experiences to unknot what holds you in limiting patterns.

Then, employing some of the latest mind-brain science, you’ll discover how to work with your mind to continue to release restrictive patterns and grow new capacities that empower your visions for a more fulfilling, meaningful life.

The final part of this transformative weekend will be to advance in time to visit your future self and extend your imagination into the values, experiences and visions that shape your destiny.

When Albert Einstein’s friend, Besso died Einstein wrote a letter to Besso’s family, saying, “…for us physicists believe the separation between past, present, and future is only an illusion, although a convincing one.”

Come and discover what the 4-dimensional space-time world, can offer you as time emerges as simultaneous and relative rather than absolute. 

What would you be able to do if your ordinary assumptions about time were expanded into the concept of timelessness?  Find out at this extraordinary weekend program.

A Different Kind of Learning Experience.

Unlike traditional learning experiences, our weekend programs are filled with activities.  You learn through movement, personal processes, dancing, visioning, writing, and the integration of new ideas in expansive, creative ways.  Dr. Houston’s lectures include not only the latest in science, but new areas of brain research, depth psychology, philosophy, universal spiritual possibilities and new patterns of thinking.  Taken together, you’ll learn remarkable processes that you can do as daily practices to help you integrate and personalize the information. In this way, it swiftly moves from concept to practical application in your life.

A New, More Natural Way to Learn

Whoever said that learning must be somber and a function of the left-braine alone?  At this highly engaging weekend, we will create a learning culture that values multi-sensorial learning and awakens the joy of discovery. 

Available on both coasts

For your convenience, this course is available on both East and West coasts.

On the West Coast, we’ll gather at the Earthrise Retreat Center at the Institute of Noetic Sciences in the beautiful rolling hills of Petaluma, in Northern California.

On the East Coast, the program will be held at the United Palace Cathedral, now expanded into the newest Community Arts Center in New York city.

You’re still in time for the Early Bird Special!

There are great savings for both alumni of earlier courses and for those new to our programs.  Space at both locations is limited, so you may want to take advantage of the Early Bird pricing in effect for California until August 10, 2013 and for New York until October 14, 2013. 

Bring your Personal Experiences to the Program.

“With her vast knowledge of everything from Blake to brain science, disarming humor, and seemingly inexhaustible spirit and good will, Jean (Houston) created a high-energy, co-creative zone in which the unique gift of every person in the room were recognized, honored, and ignited.  I came out of it with renewed passion and focus about the next steps on my creative path and inspired vision of how it can both enrich my life and make a difference in the world”

If you have personal experiences, blocks, inhibitions or unmet goals that you want to change, bring them to our time together.  This is the ideal time to break out and break through to an empowering new life.
