UPCOMING COURSES & TELECONFERENCE EVENTS

NEW WORKSHOP!

Walking the Path With Heart

with Rachel Naomi Remen MD and Mark Montijo PhD

Course Dates: Thurs. Oct. 1st – Sat. Oct 3rd

Rachel Naomi Remen

Does Your Purpose Guide Your Life?
What if you are here for a unique reason? What if the criticism and approval of others has covered this over and encouraged you to make yourself into the person you are rewarded for being rather than the person you were born to be? Do you know how to come home to yourself and live closer to your reason for being? What if you could find ways to follow the hidden threads of genuine purpose that run through your life and let them lead you to back to the person you most essentially are?

Indigenous wisdom tells us Life is an opportunity to walk the Path with Heart. This workshop will help free you from beliefs about who you should be, so you can become the person you authentically are. Rachel and Mark (who are cousins) will draw on their personal experience of spiritual and tribal practices and traditions to help you recognize and reclaim your own birthright.

PAST COURSES & EVENTS

Stories About Grandpa and Grandma

with Rachel Naomi Remen MD

6th Teleconference in the Story Time for Grownups Series

June 4, 2015

The relationship between children and their grandparents is often one of the most special relationships in a lifetime. Grandparents love us and see us differently than parents do. Our parents set goals and standards for us. They teach us table manners, and take us to school. They help with homework. They cheer at our games and go to our plays. They discipline us and get us to places on time. Our grandparents have already done these things for our parents. What they do for us is different. They listen to us. They play with us. They celebrate our lives and love us exactly as we are. Because they knew them personally, they recognize in us the continuity of our family. They see in our faces the eyes of our great grandmother or the nose of our great, great grandfather. And for them we are not just the immortality of the past but also the hope of the future. They love us unconditionally. There is also a Q & A and a wonderful song from singer songwriter Karen Drucker.

Stories About The Power of Love

 

with Rachel Naomi Remen MD

 

5th Teleconference in the Story Time for Grownups Series

  Feb. 12, 2015  

he heart is usually  thought of as a sort of Valentine, a soft and even “touchy feely” place.. But the heart is an organ of vision, a way of seeing that offers us great strength and shows us the direction of wise action. When you see through the heart and not just the mind, you discover your true power to make a difference in the lives of others and in the world. The heart offers us a richer and better life often without changing the life we are already leading. The perspective of  the heart enables us to find the deep meaning in ordinary life, the joy often hidden  in our daily routine. Only the heart has the power to heal lifelong relationships that have caused us much pain and teach us to value ourselves for who we are. And only the heart can heal the illusion of loneliness.

Rachel will share stories that offer us a new perspective on the power of the heart and uncover one of the best kept secrets in our culture; the compass that can lead us to a sustainable and better world lies in the heart and not the mind.

There is also a lively Q & A and a wonderful song from singer songwriter Karen Drucker.

Stories About The Will To Live

with Rachel Naomi Remen MD

4th Teleconference in the Story Time for Grownups Series

Dec. 16, 2014

Winter is the time when the Will to Live in many living things is tested. A time of cold and darkness when all appears dead.  A time when we need to trust something that we cannot see, the life force hidden deep in the heart of all living things. The Will to Live is the part of our birthright. It is present in even the smallest of us and is undiminished even in great age. In Celebration of the Winter Solstice, Rachel shares some of her favorite stories from Kitchen Table Wisdom and My Grandfather’s Blessings about the Will to Live, the tenacity towards life woven into every one of our cells that responds to the challenge of Winter and enables us not only to survive but to blossom. There is also a lively Q & A and a wonderful song from singer songwriter Karen Drucker.

Stories About Death And Mystery

 

with Rachel Naomi Remen MD

 

3rd Teleconference in the Story Time for Grownups Series

Oct. 30, 2014

Death is the Mystery at the heart of life, the great Unknown. Often the end of life is the place where we discover life’s deepest meaning and the true value of our love.

The Day of the Dead is one of the oldest of holiday celebrations dating back to Pre-Columbian times. It is a time when family and friends who have died are recognized as a vital and powerful part of life and the line between the dead and the living grows thinner. People gather in homes and in cemeteries with the souls of their beloved dead to feast and pray and appreciate the blessings of friends and family. I will be reading some favorite stories from my bestselling books (KITCEN TABLE WISDOM & MY GRANDFATHER’S BLESSINGS) about the mystery and the meanings of death and of family.

STORIES about FINDING MEANING in YOUR WORK

2nd Teleconference in the Story Time for Grownups Series

  DATE: Sept. 3rd, 2014 Work can be a burden or a blessing. Your work can be a Job, the way you make money. Or a Career that advances your personal power. Or a Calling that enables you to make a difference and change the world. The same work can become any of these things. In celebration of Labor Day, Rachel reads some of her favorite stories from her bestselling books (KITCHEN TABLE WISDOM & MY GRANDFATHER’S BLESSINGS) about the ways work can wound you or heal you, diminish you or reveal your true nature, become your love made visible or even your unique spiritual path.
