September:  Exploring the Big Picture

People are on the streets demonstrating… yet they don’t know what they’re demonstrating for. They don’t see the Big Picture.

People are living lives of desperation… yet they don’t know what is causing their desperation. They don’t see the Big Picture.

People are living lives of depression and despair… yet they don’t know what is causing their despair. They don’t see the Big Picture.

It’s time to get a grip.  It’s time for you to focus on the Big Picture.

October/ November:  Releasing the Shadows; Embracing the Light (Shadow to Light)

Why is ‘Shadow to Light’ Important:

  • ‘Racism’ is alive and well in our dysfunctional society… yet it is only one part of the dysfunctionality, the ‘Shadows’ that envelop us.  
  • ‘Police Violence’ is but one type, one “flavor” of the violence that lies at the root of our society.  
  • People are getting richer… and poorer… faster and faster.
  • Depression, despair and suicide are at all-time highs

We have a choice: address one of the Shadow symptoms, put out the fire in one room, while the rest of the house burns to the ground.  

OR…  We can eliminate all of the Shadows, by turning on the Lights.   

What You Will Learn in “Releasing the Shadow; Embracing the Light:

  • Learn why the challenges in our society persist, despite decades, or even centuries, of attempts to eradicate them.
  •  Understand the four fundamental “Shadows” that hold us back as individuals and as a society.
  • Analyze the four “Lights”, the visions that can empower a profound change in our society.
  • Discover the practical steps to root out the Shadows from your own life.
  • Acquire useful tools to spread the Light in our society. 
  • Learn how to work with others to effectively transform
