Is something or someone in your life “driving you crazy”? Are you feeling overwhelmed or stressed by something that is going on around you? Are you constantly second guessing your actions because you’re afraid of what others might think or say? Do you get frustrated easily?  Or frequently lose your patience?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then please keep reading! We have a very special invitation, just for you! So many people feel stressed, tired, overwhelmed and even depressed.  Given the number of problems and challenges life regularly throws our way and how busy our lives are, it’s not surprising that many of us feel like we are on an emotional roller coaster ride.

But it really does not have to be this way.  It is possible to Calm the Chaos and feel peacefulconfident and energized. For the last 10 years, Cindy Powers Prosor has specialized in helping hundreds of people all over the world, discover how to stay calm, feel more confident and centered, and tap into their full potential, so that they can create and live the life of their dreams.

You are invited to join her, for a 90-minute experience entitled, “Calm the Chaos Within”.  In this 90-minute experience you will learn new information and tools you can take with you that will help you feel more centred, connected, relaxed and balanced no matter what is happening around you. Remember, nothing changes until you do!

About Cindy:
Cindy Powers Prosor, The Intuitive Heart Mentor and the Founder of Opening Doors Within has been professionally helping people drop out of their heads and into their hearts - transforming fear, doubt and struggle into confidence, trust and love - for over 10 years.

Cindy has been intuitively creating her own love-filled life from a young age.  As the “black sheep” in her family, at age 17 Cindy followed her dreams and moved to Truckee where she created the life and community she dreamt about as a child.  Cindy’s personal story of conscious transformation began when she was introduced to Deepak Chopra’s book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success in the early 80s where she gained clarity around what she had been intuitively doing for years. 
   
Eventually Cindy’s path led her to train with both the prestigious Coaches Training Institute and China Studies where she became certified as a Life Coach and Feng Shui Consultant.  Shortly thereafter, Cindy left Truckee her community of 34 years and dropped her collage bound daughter to Bozeman, MT and moved to rural New Zealand with her husband and son.  That’s when the “floor fell from under her.”  Loosing her foundation of community, family and friends in a difficult transition, for the first time in her life Cindy spiralled down a tunnel of darkness into loneliness and despair.  With the support of her coach, Cindy was able to use this chapter to awaken to her inner word and discovered how to create lasting happiness, love and connection from an even deeper place than ever before.

Those who have worked with Cindy say her work is revolutionary.  She opens their minds to new ways of understanding while giving them tools to heal and create a life filled with passion, hope, connection and love.
Cindy’s energy and enthusiasm for her work is inspiring.  Happily married to Larry, her Soul mate of 33 years, Cindy runs programs and retreats between her lakeside cottage in Northern California and her seaside home on the east coast of the north island of New Zealand.  Cindy’s own happiness and life is a reflection of her work and her most potent credential.

Women Empowering Women Presents Christine Karnofsky: Life, Death, Bellydancing and Godzilla

Date: Monday, August 4, 2014
Time: 10:00 AM – Noon
Location: For Goodness Sake



Christine will be speaking on the cycles of life and death, joy, passion, the connection of our bodies to our spirits, the illusion of the power of fear and loss, and our true nature.

What happens when we think about dying? Are we living our life or just repeating our daily routine? What keeps us from doing the things that give us joy? How can we honor the cycles of our lives and be enriched? How can fear actually help us move on? These are some questions we may want to ask ourselves if we feel we are ready to be
fully alive.

Christine has been a Tahoe resident since 1987 after beginning her career as a landscape designer in the Bay Area in 1985. She received her education in art and landscape architecture from the College of San Mateo and UNR in Reno. She apprenticed with the internationally known landscape architect and published author,
James Chadwick, who resides in San Jose and is now retired. A professional Belly Dance performer and
instructor for the past 40 years, Christine has performed and taught both nationally and internationally.Her teaching encourages the connection to one’s self through the dance experience and supports the expression of the individual student. She teaches in Lakeforest at the Lakeforest Arts Center and Dance Studio on Tuesday
nights. Christine is a Reiki Practitioner, Hospice volunteer, student of Buddhism, meditation and yoga. She is married to Glenn Karnofsky and has three sons. Their home is in Kings Beach.

The Soul of the Innermost Life
with DIANA LORENCE

Date: Friday August 29th
Time: 6-8pm
Location: For Goodness Sake

 

house
diana
house

Join us for an evening of stories, pictures and conversation. For seven years Diana Lorence and her husband lived in an unelectrified, twelve-by-twelve-foot house they built themselves, hidden in the woods of Northern California, in a world lit only by fire. Ms. Lorence will speak about her simple, contemplative life in the woods recreating her years of simple, mindful living at the heart of what she calls “the innermost life"

Two years ago Diana Lorence emerged from her seclusion with her first essay that has been read in over one hundred nations of the world. That essay begins, "Innermost House is the latest of many very small houses my husband and I have occupied over twenty-five years, all for the same reason–to make possible a simple life of reflection and conversation.”

She reflects, “The currents of the world flow against those who love and long for a truly simple life. Before we came to the woods I moved with my husband more than twenty times, always in search of the Innermost Life that finally grew out of our need. The simple life is a luxury few feel they can afford today. Yet its price is little more than to surrender what you do not love and do not need. I have lived a lover’s life, suffering for and rejoicing in the things I truly love.”

“I have learned that simplicity for me lies in loving with all my heart and all my soul and all my mind. I have made my way to a simple life by loving the one thing that matters most to me as if nothing else mattered at all. It is living for love that led me to the heart of what I call the Innermost Life.”

Space is limited, please call to register.

Prajna Paramita Teaching with Polly Ryan

Date: Sunday, September 7th
Time: 12-5:00pm
Location: For Goodness Sake, and via the internet

prajna

During this afternoon teaching participants will learn the Prajna Paramita practice of Lama Tsultrim Allione and receive the transmission for this nature-of-mind practice from authorized teacher Polly Ryan, MA. The teaching includes the history of Prajna Paramita and a detailed explanation of the practice itself. Lama Tsultrim has condensed her 40 years of Vajrayana practice into a simple and complete Sadhana for cultivating the ultimate state of realization. This practice is accessible and straightforward, with each component leading naturally towards effortless resting in the Nature of Mind. Prajna Paramita is a core practice within the Truckee Tara Mandala Sangha.

Prajna Paramita is the Great Mother; she is luminous clarity that is full of compassion. She is a deity, a symbol, and a sutra. Above all, she is the teaching that guides us to the experience of prajna, or transcendent wisdom. She is a Wisdom Mother, rather than an Earth Mother, and is most closely related to Sophia in Western Tradition. She comes from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, and is the principle of the foundation of reality and our own true nature.

The “jna” of Prajna is the same root as “gno” of gnosis, which indicates the possibility of a deep inner knowing, a knowing of the heart. Therefore, she is the teaching that guides us to the experience of prajna, or transcendent wisdom. Meditation slows down the confused grasping aspect of the mind (the ego) which perpetuates our ineffectual patterns of behavior and thinking. The cultivation of a quiet mind allows the natural luminous clarity of the mind, or “prajna”, to come forth. Prajna Paramita is the quality of sharp perception which comes with relaxation of the ego. The quality of compassion arises naturally and effortlessly out of this transcendent wisdom.

Prerequisite: Lama Tsultrim asks that participants have at least two years of consistent meditation or other internal arts such as yoga, chi gung, tai chi, etc., highly recommended, or permission from the teacher (530.587.1978 or pollyryanmft@yahoo.com).

Suggested Dana: $40-65 (no one will be turned away due to lack of funds) Please call to register.
