Holotropic Breathwork™ offers an opportunity to touch the deep well of your own inner healing wisdom. Each session is unique, offering a range of experiences that can include aspects of your personal history, psychological death and rebirth, transpersonal interconnections, and the greater reality to which we all belong. Deeper and faster breathing, a specially designed musical journey, and a safe and supportive setting with trained facilitators are the doorway to a non-ordinary state of consciousness with the potential for deep self-exploration, personal transformation, and healing. Mandala drawing and group processing of the experiences are tools for initial steps toward integration of the journey.
Please note that this work is not indicated for persons dealing with significant high blood pressure or other cardiovascular conditions; glaucoma or recent retinal detachment; surgeries or recent injuries, and serious psychiatric conditions. If you have questions about these contraindications, please call Pam at 713-416-4678.

“Sage-ing”: Zalman Schachter-Shalomi on Conscious Aging
Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomi, celebrated for his work in ecumenical dialogue and Jewish Renewal, was an originator of the movement for conscious aging, at the forefront in defining its aims and means. After a brief account of his extraordinary life, this presentation will review his vision of “spiritual eldering,” with its potential role in personal and social transformation and its promise of a more creative and fulfilling elderhood. Tracking his application of insights from contemplative traditions and transpersonal psychology to issues of aging, it will explore his notions of the value of elderhood in mentoring, healing, and the “art of life completion.”

Waking Up to What We Do: Buddhist Ethics as a Practice of Liberation
Buddhist precepts originated as rules to govern monastic communities and broadened to guide lay people to cultivate wisdom and compassion in thoughts, words, and deeds. This lecture will discuss the central precepts and describe the liberating effects of practicing them in our daily interactions. Drawing on Diane Eshin Rizzetto's book, "Waking Up to What You Do," we will explore the precepts not as commandments by which we judge ourselves but as basic human values. The precepts can help us to discern the reality of each situation and to take appropriate action accordingly. The more we choose not to act from self-interest at the expense of others, the more we find inner peace and ease.
