14.  THE POWER OF POSITIVE SINGING: HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS IN MUSICAL THEATER                       
                                               By CARY BAYER

Great sages, for thousands of years, have shown mankind how to live the higher life.  For thousands of months
, so, too, have Rodgers & Hammerstein, Lerner & Loewe, Sondheim, Bernstein and Porter, among others.
In this class, Cary Bayer, author of ‘The Yoga of Entertainment: Higher Consciousness in Pop Culture’, and th
e mini-book ‘The Power of Positive Singing: Higher Consciousness in Musical Theater’, acts as a kind of lif
e coach/meditation/teacher/disc jockey to present the musical teachings of Tin Pan Alley composers to us.
Lyrics: “Accentuate the Positive,” “Spread sunshine All over the Place.” “Hearing the Call,” “My way on Broadway.”
And “Dream a Big Dream,” offer insights into the transformation of consciousness expressed in the songs of so
many musicals
.



21.  MEDITATION APPS by BEN BRESSER

More and more mobile apps are now available for meditation.  We’ll be looking at what’s out there, why you
might be interested in them, and how to use them.




28.  DIMENSIONS OF CONSCIOUSNESS by SHARON MEYER (SAM)

This physical world is one dimension of many but we are multi-dimensional beings.  Our interactive time will
assist us in deciding what dimension(s) of consciousness we choose to believe and participate in while in
human form.  Come with an open mind and be prepared to participate in this timely discussion of varied states
of consciousness.

5.  THE HORARY 24 HOURS BODY CLOCK by ZIBO GAO, DC

In Traditional Chinese Medicine it is believed that each organ has its point of highest energy and lowest energy.  
As the Qi makes its way through the meridians, each meridian in turn, with its associated organ, has a two-hour
period during which it is at maximum energy.  The Horary Effect is recognizable by measurable increases of Qi
within an organ system and meridian during its time of maximum energy.



12.    WHITE LOTUS DAY – REMEMBERING HPB
Followed by:  TALES OF THE BODHISATTVAS by BRIAN BURNS


They are the divine angels/saints of Buddhism.  Are they Human?  Angels?  Gods?  Or—all of the above?
Hear the amazing stories of the incredible Beings who are the embodiment of compassion.  Kwan Yin, Jizo,
Shantideva, Sarasvati and Manushri are some of the characters you will meet.




19.  NON-DUALITY: TEACHINGS & PRACTICES by TONY SPATARELLA


Join Tony as he discusses non-duality from the Buddhist and Vedanta perspectives, both philosophically and
experientially.  Are we truly separate from our environment, or are we engulfed in an individual and collective
ignorance regarding ourselves and our world?  These, and many other questions will be answered as Tony
presents knowledge shared in the great Wisdom teachings, that we are so fortunate to have access to in these
very challenging times.




26.  SAMADHI – A DANIEL J. SCHMIDT DVD – DOCUMENTARY

The award-winning film maker, who gifted humanity with ‘INNER WORLDS OUTER WORLDS’, has again
created the long-awaited sequel ‘SAMADHI’.  Fractal and musical compositions are woven through this
comprehensive documentary, which beautifully explores the perennial wisdom and unfathomable truth that is
Samadhi; the awakening from the illusion of Maya or identification with the individual “I”.  It is a journey beyond
the world of the limited self to the realization of our true nature; beyond name and form.

2.    WALT WHITMAN… AN AMERICAN BUDDHA by BRIAN BURNS AND CARY BAYER


Please join us for a special celebration of Walt Whitman’s 200th birthday!  Walt is not only America’s greatest
poet, today he is also acknowledged as a profound spiritual Master who worked to bring us all to liberation.  
Hosts, author and teacher Cary Bayer and poet Brian Burns will perform readings from Walt’s most powerful
works and will tell stories from the life of this amazing human being.  Walt was once described by Ralph Waldo
Emerson as…”an American Buddha.”




9.  CRISIS MANAGEMENT by JANANI CLEARY


A true test of a person’s perspective on life becomes most evident when faced with a crisis.  This where the
proverbial “rubber hits the road!”  In order to prepare for such unexpected situations it helps to have a certain
understanding and mindfulness that is already woven into one’s mental make-up.  This talk will suggest certain
attitudes and ideas that when adopted, provide a fundamental orientation that can be deployed as and when
such a crisis arises.



16.   SHINTO AND BUDDHISM IN JAPAN by MARION DOLAN PhD

Two religious traditions are dominant in Japan—Shinto and Buddhism.  This talk will discuss spiritual
structures and artworks of both traditions.  The Royal Shinto Shrine at Ise holds the country’s most sacred relics
associated with the sun Goddess Amaterasu Omikami, the mystical ancestor of the royal family; the Shrine
buildings are rebuilt every twenty years.  Their numerous Buddhist temples date to ancient times.  We will visit
sacred sites of Kyoto, the early capital city: Shino Shrine, Phoenix Hall, Kiyomizu Temple, and also the Katsura
Imperial Villa and Teahouse.



23.  THE REFOUNDING OF AMERICA by PHILLIP COLLINS AND JOEL ANASTASI


Phillip and Joel will talk to us about their new book of the same title.  This is the powerful story of a divine
experiment to create a world based on love, called Earth, designed to be a reflection of creation itself.  A key
focus of this experiment was to create a nation with a government of the people, by the people and for the
people.  The United States of America.
The story of that experiment is told through the lives of three proxies
serving creation.  Two of the proxies are human; the third became an Ascended Master, St Germain, humanity’s
guide during this new 2000-year spiritual age of Aquarius.




30.     ‘MAYA’ by ENRIQUE RENARD


MAYA is a Sanskrit word for “illusion”, and the concept occupies an essential meaning in Oriental Philosophy and in our lives as well.
That which we call “reality”, is only what our senses perceive.  Someone has called them “the windows of the
Soul.”  But these are in fact small windows that show us things quite incomplete, or which don’t show 90% of the
reality that surrounds us.  This restriction and limitation imposed on us by our senses is, we are told, required
for the unfolding of Consciousness lying dormant in us.  This presentation will explain the process in detail.
