This two day Oneness Deeksha Training is being offered at our Center to certify you as a Oneness Deeksha Giver. You may take this course for your own personal awareness and spiritual development or give and share this blessing at our twice monthly Wednesday Deeksha Meditations or other Oneness events.
This course is being facilitated by Carol Walker and Lida Martin, two individuals passionate about energy and the awakening process. Both are active in energy healing and consciousness studies and each have been in private practice for over thirty years. They bring their love and expertise to be your loving guides on this journey back into wholeness and Oneness.
Deeksha is an ancient word derived from the Sanskrit language that refers to a "benediction" or a "gift" from the Divine, God, your Higher Self, which fuels the awakening process. It is a Blessing from the Divine that works to activate the kundalini, balance the chakras, and serves to intelligently guide you on an individual and unique journey into higher states of consciousness and ultimately into the state of Oneness itself. Deeksha is the transfer of a physical energy which affects a neurobiological shift, initiating a process where the Divine guides the recipient on an individual journey into awakening into Oneness. This shift deactivates the energy in certain areas of the brain while increasing energy in others which results in diminishing of the feeling we all have of separation. A whole new world opens to you when you are in direct contact with reality, as it is, without being carried away by the never-ending chatter of the mind, its evaluations and interpretations.
Please bring a sack lunch so we can remain in the sacred energy we are building through the day. There will be breaks to walk and be outside. We are creating an altar together so please bring
photographs of loved ones, family and pets, sacred or devotional images of God, angels, ascended masters, nature in all her glory, and things that inspire you.
