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.

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 also.be 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.

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.
