Chögyam Trungpa was a person of outrageous energy, wisdom, and creativity. He is considered by many to be the single most influential force in bringing Tibetan Buddhism to the West. While 2012 marks the 25th anniversary of Trungpa Rinpoche's death, in When Lightning Strikes Dr. Ray shows us that Trungpa's dharma is as alive and accessible as ever. "Trungpa himself had been struck by the lightning bolt of the awakened state," explains Dr. Ray, "and he taught us many ways to experience the awakened state within our everyday lives, bringing that fresh explosion of life force right into each precious moment." Through anecdotes, stories, dharma teachings, guided meditations, and interactive discussions, Dr. Ray invites us to see and experience the world as his great tantric master did.

Myths and Stories of the Wise Woman Archetype
with Clarissa Pinkola Estés, PhD

Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés’ international bestseller Women Who Run with the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype empowered millions with its “saga of the gifted soul.” But that was only the beginning. Three decades in the making, The Dangerous Old Woman: Myths and Stories about the Wise Woman Archetype promises to rate even higher on the Richter scale!

Dr. Estés, esteemed psychoanalyst and renowned storyteller, presents part 1 of her masterwork in a series of six online sessions filled with her signature stories, myths, and poetry—many told for the first time. Meet the Dangerous Old Woman from across world history and cultures, including La Anciana, the Ancient One; the Midwife Exemplar; La Tejadora, the Weavers of Fate; The Juggler Women; and many others.

Dr. Estés on this landmark event: “Though I myself find perils and challenges of age to be true, we must disavow the old prejudices about women and age. The true vision of the wise woman is one of bounty of love and age and wisdom. As she gathers years, like an ancient tree, she grows even more arms, even more flowers and fruits. She is more rooted, more vast, more sheltering—developing her callings to be throughout life, maiden mother, medium, crone, elder, healer, teacher, artist, knowing woman.”

Myths and Stories of the Wise Woman Archetype
with Clarissa Pinkola Estés, PhD

“Dear brave souls, I warmly invite you to come be at the fireside with me and the Dangerous Old Woman and the Power of the Crone. Who is the crone? She is the most dangerous, the most radical, the most revolutionary woman in existence. Whether in fairy tales or in consensual reality, the old one goes where she wants to and she acts as she wishes; she lives as she chooses. And this is all as it should be. And no one can stop her. Nor ought they try.”
—Clarissa Pinkola Estés, PhD

Entering the terrain of wisdom occurs at any age. We sometimes step, sometimes stumble, and are other times pulled into the territory of the Crone when the need for a deeper, larger understanding of our most meaningful path can no longer be denied—when the gifts hidden in our challenges must be brought forth. In The Power of the Crone on-demand online event, part 2 of the Dangerous Old Woman series, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés shares six sessions of original stories, poems, blessings, and healing insights for the creative soul. For the ways of the crone have been set down in stories, stories that our hearts and souls long to hear in order that we might fully flower in our own way.

The Breakthrough Manifestation Workshop
Generating Freedom, Creativity, and Power
with Rick Jarow, PhD

Why do some projects succeed while others never get off the ground? Is there a greater purpose behind our work in the world? How can you skillfully navigate the intricacies of money, health, relationship, and spirituality in a clear and integral way? These are the questions we will explore in the The Breakthrough Manifestation Course Workshop with Rick Jarow, PhD, creator of the renowned “anti-career” vocational practice. In this on-demand online event, Jarow invites us to consider the art of manifestation not in the simplistic sense of “thinking of what you want and getting it,” but in the deeper “alchemical” possibilities of simultaneously loving what is while moving toward where one wants to be. In four 90-minute online on-demand event sessions, which include Q&A with Jarow, you’ll learn values clarification processes, visioning techniques and other guided practices to help you incarnate your highest dreams, and untapped potential for a life in balance with Divine will.

Program Highlights
  • How do you define the good life?
  • Visualizations to take you deeper into your own being—allowing you to uncover and examine the profound forces operating in your life
  • To act or to sit still, that is the question
  • The “unhooking” process for increasing your energy and focus
  • What it means to open up to the preciousness of every moment
  • How the practice of sadhana can help you align your will with the will of the universe

Centering Prayer
Centering Prayer
A Training Course for Opening to the Presence of God
Father Thomas Keating, Gail Fitzpatrick-Hopler, and Father Carl Arico

Answering a life calling, Father Thomas Keating sought to renew a prayer practice that goes beyond asking for aid or offering praise—one that invites you to enter into a deeper relationship with God. Based on the wisdom sayings of Jesus and inspired by teachings from the classic 14th-century text The Cloud of Unknowing, Saint John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila, Thomas Merton, and others, Centering Prayer is a method that has sparked the modern renewal of contemplative Christianity. “Centering Prayer does not replace other types of prayer,” teaches Keating. “Rather, the practice gives a new depth of meaning to all forms of prayer.” An interactive eight-session intensive learning and practice program highlighted by two recorded teaching sessions with Gail Fitzpatrick-Hopler and Father Carl Arico, the course also includes private journaling, along with online discussions and more than nine hours of audio and video instruction, plus a rich selection of written exercises and information.

Peter Levine
Healing Trauma
A Step-by-Step Program for Restoring the Wisdom of the Body
with Peter A. Levine

Evolution has provided us with a way to deal with trauma the moment it happens—yet our cultural training overrides our body’s natural instinct about what to do. The result is that we often store the energy trauma in the body, leading to unexplained physical problems, emotional issues, and psychological blockages. Dr. Peter A. Levine’s breakthrough techniques have helped many thousands of trauma survivors tap into our innate ability to heal—creating profound results where “talking” cures so frequently come up short.

With The Healing Trauma Online Course, this respected therapist and teacher presents an on-demand online training course in his revolutionary system for releasing the energy of traumatic events and restoring a harmonious balance to the body and mind. Drawing on his clinical research and his study of how animals release trauma, Dr. Levine teaches you each of the essential principles of his four-phase process. You will learn how and where you are storing unresolved distress, how to become more aware of your body’s physiological responses to danger, and specific methods to free yourself from trauma. Now you can address unexplained symptoms at their source—your body—and return to the natural state you were meant to live in.

Gifts of a Dark Night
Dealing Effectively with Times of Loss and Trial
with Thomas Moore

The phrase “dark night of the soul” comes mainly from the mystical poems of John of the Cross. But his basic insights apply to the difficult passages we all go through in our ordinary lives. They are rites of passage that involve pain and disorientation but also clear the way for a new vision. The way we deal with them is crucial. It isn’t enough just to endure them and hope they pass. In our ordinary experience a “dark night of the soul” may be any challenging period of loss or failure that may disrupt life and make us sad and perhaps depressed. Rather than see these unhappy times as completely negative, we could understand them as opportunities to create a better life and become a more mature person.

Gifts of a Dark Night presents a series of talks and exchanges meant to provide specific ways to deal effectively with dark nights of all kinds: loss of a job, death of a loved one, illness, divorce, aging, and other transitions. In this three-session on-demand event, we join Thomas Moore, bestselling author of Care of the Soul, to discover fresh, positive ways to navigate our inevitable times of trial with grace, dignity, and trust in the wisdom of our experience.
