Sermon on the Mount
July 28 – August 1, 2021

Many feel that it would be a great privilege to visit the scenes of Christ’s life on earth, to walk where He trod, to look upon the lake beside which He loved to teach, and the hills and valleys on which His eyes so often rested. But we need not go to Nazareth, to Capernaum, or to Bethany, in order to walk in the steps of Jesus. We shall find His footprints beside the sickbed, in the hovels of poverty, in the crowded alleys of the great city, and in every place where there are human hearts in need of consolation. In doing as Jesus did when on earth, we shall walk in His steps.”—Ellen G. White, The Desire of Ages, p. 640

We will be covering (The Sermon on the Mount). Our goal is bring to the surface lessons that could be applied to our lives. Our focus is to present Gods words expressing his message He wants us to experience. We will have 6 speakers who will bring their life experience into the lessons expressed by our Lord.

Anne Nowell & El Larson | Therapeutic Yoga and Sound Healing
August 4-8, 2021

Therapeutic Yoga incorporates gentle but strengthening yoga movements, synchronized breathing, and focused attention. It is a work-in more than a workout. Those with limited mobility could practice seated in chairs. This approach facilitates healing and advances well-being for the whole person: body, mind, and spirit. It is a beautiful way to prepare for one’s meditation practice.

Sound Healing creates a space where the participants can reach a state of deep relaxation and access deeper levels of the mind. The vibrations and harmonics of the Sound Bath can help reduce stress and facilitate clearing of emotional energetic blockages.

Catherine Ann Jones | Heal Your Self with Writing
August 18 – 22, 2021

Catherine Ann JonesWe all know the value of psychology in uncovering our deepest feelings and the importance of catharsis in temporarily releasing our pain. Yet while psychological techniques may help prepare us for the journey of healing, they often are not enough to lead us through the deeper way of transformation. Healing without transformation risks re-living negative patterns over and over -sometimes even reinforcing them by repetition, rather than truly putting them behind us.

Disappointed by the lack of good roles for women, she wrote a play about Virginia Woolf (On the Edge) which won a National Endowment for the Arts Award for her first of twelve produced plays. Her films include UNLIKELY ANGEL, THE CHRISTMAS WIFE, and the popular television series, TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL.

Sue Prescott | The Path to Self Realization
August. 18-22, 2021

Susan JohnsonWe engage with the world around us using our everyday, personal self. This consists of our
physical bodies, our emotions and our minds. However, the essence of who we are is the inner, spiritual Self. This encompasses more than the physical experience of living and includes our intuition and our awareness of the Oneness of all of life. To “realize” this spiritual Self means to rise above the limits of our everyday thinking to truly know this deeper part of ourselves and to live in accordance with it. This is the “Spiritual Path.”

The first day of this 4-day workshop will focus on individual; personal transformation. We will explore the Levels of Consciousness within a human being and why we get stuck in patterns of behavior that are problematic for us. We will look at “Filling the Hole in the Soul” and how spiritual teachings and therapeutic practices help people with feelings of emptiness or a lack of purpose in their lives. Because Sue Prescott is a therapist, she weaves into her presentations positive coping mechanisms for good mental health that align with the spiritual practices for Self Realization.

Day 2 is “Improving Relationships as a Path to Self Realization.” This will include ways to access the higher reasoning of the spiritual Self and its intuition to better understand ourselves and others. Specific skills for relationship enhancement will be taught, including a powerful technique from Paramahansa Yogananda on healing tension between 2 people. Forgiveness techniques and adrenalin/anger management skills will included. To top it off, the comforting experience of the Angel Wash ceremony will nourish the participants with support and encouragement.

Day 3 and 4 will cover, “7 Proven Ways to Become Your Higher Self.” This presentation and discussion will look at the top 7 practical steps that spiritual traditions from around the world teach to purify and tune our levels of consciousness-the mind, heart and body-to become one with the consciousness of the Divine Self. Examples of exercises that will be covered are pranayama or breath control techniques, witnessing, along with various ways to meditate, including a walking meditation, and chanting or toning exercises that utilize the power of sound. A number of teaching stories will also be used that offer valuable lessons applicable to daily life.

Come join us and enhance your progress on your own Path to Self Realization.


Sue Prescott, MSW, is a therapist, life-long theosophist and frequent lecturer at the Seattle lodge and surrounding area. She is author of Realizing the Self Within-an overview of the concepts of spirituality that can be applied to relationships and self-improvement. In her talks, Sue melds the principles of therapeutic change with spiritual growth.

Kay Mouradian EdD

Many years ago Dr. Kay Mouradian first introduced her meridian stretches at Far Horizons, where participants also have the opportunity to enjoy the clean air, the energy, the beauty of Sequoia National Park, and marvel over the oldest and largest trees on planet earth!

Kay’s meridian stretches along the12 major acupuncture meridian channels help maintain fitness for the highly skilled as well as those who can do little more than stretch their fingers. The acupuncture meridian energy is weakest at the points in the fingers and toes, so Kay concentrates on triggering that latent chi to help balance the yin/ yang in the body.


KAY MOURADIAN, professor emerita from the Los Angeles Community Colleges, spent several months in India researching yoga for her dissertation. She holds a doctorate in education from Nova Southeastern University and has degrees from Boston University and UCLA.

She has just completed a book proposal for her latest work, Yoga and the Power of Thought. Her other publications include Reflective Meditation: a Mind Calming Technique published by Quest Books, and A Guide for Those Teaching Yoga in the Community Colleges. She also has contributed articles in several magazines and newspapers.

Susan Johnson | Finding Happiness & Joy Through Patience and Tolerance
Sept. 1 – 5, 2021

Sue PrescottLoosely based on Shantideva’s: A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, this workshop will explore the possibilities of living one’s life in a state of grace, accepting all that comes to one with patience and tolerance. When we recognize that everything that presents itself in our life is directly related to how we have responded in the past and that our future is entirely dependent on how we are responding now, we may find ourselves in a state of freedom, freedom from desire, freedom from resistance, from judgment and disappointment, thus lending us the opportunity to live from an inner peace and happiness with all that is, as it is. This is what we mean by radical forgiveness or radical compassion. Suffering is everybody’s spiritual teacher, but it depends on the complete identification with form. Can we live a life that is free of suffering no matter what happens?

Susan will help us to navigate our way to joy and happiness through patience and understanding with the help of Shantideva’s brilliant arguments, group discussions, short guided meditations, and gentle qi-gong exercises for quieting, focusing and harmonizing body and spirit.


Susan Johnson has been a member of the Theosophical Society since 1986 and facilitates the Santa Cruz Theosophical Study Center, in California. She is a licensed acupuncturist who teaches a Taoist form of Traditional Chinese Medicine, worldwide. Susan is most at home in nature and loves music, plants, animals, Japanese brush-painting, Feng-Shui and the study of comparative religion, especially from a Non-Dual perspective.

Peggy Heubel | Thoughts on the Immanence of God
September 1 – 5, 2021

DESCRIPTION: How might we recognize, here and now, the divinity all around us? As human beings, we seem to be separate from all other beings and all things. This feeling of detachment is natural in the early course of evolutionary progress but must, as we strive for spiritual maturity, be overcome. Recognition of the oneness of the indivisible nature of all things must become a reality in thought, word, and deed – a change in mind-set. How do we reconcile the differences between a transcendent deity who, by definition, is separate from ourselves and that which is said to be the very core of all existence—the immanence of diety?
This 4-day workshop intends to provide a variety aids for the development of individual understanding of the one-ness—the fundamental unity–of an apparently undeniably heterogeneous (diverse) universe.

                     GENERAL AIDS:

  •  lecture, slide-presentations (PowerPoint)
  •  direct participant involvement
    •  presenter-question & participant-answer segments (dry-erase board)
    •  mindfulness and meditative exercises
    •  brief nature walk
    •  journaling w/participant discussion of individual results on last day


Peggy A. Heubel retired nine years ago from a thirty-year career in law enforcement. She was already an active theosophist during this time, having joined the Society in 1977 with a keen interest in human potential. She is currently president of the Theosophical Society of the East Bay in northern California, a member of the theosophical camp, Far Horizons, a mentor for the Society’s Prisoner Correspondence Program, and is the vice-president of the Theosophical Order of Service, USA.
