Friday, April 28, 7 p.m./Saturday, April 29, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.:No Time for Ordinary contemplative concert and workshop with visionary thought leader Jan Phillips. This will be a multi-media, multi-sensory experience in evolutionary creativity, spiritual awakening and bridge-building.PLEASE REGISTER ONLINE FOR THE WORKSHOP BY TUESDAY, APRIL 25.

    These times and our own interior voices are calling for a shift from ordinary to extraordinary. Our global mind is undergoing an evolutionary leap and we are feeling its push and pull. We know it is time to step up, to step out and be the force we came here to be. Time to shed our fear and express our potential. Time to remove the bushel that’s been hiding our light and become conscious creators of our lives, our families, our communities. In order to do this, we need to reconnect our heart and brain, re-examine our cultural and spiritual myths, and release our attachment to the past. The future is waiting to enter into us.

    ​This program prepares you for that event. Using music, poetry, images and stories, we dissolve the obstacles to our originality, find our authentic voice, and discover what bliss arrives when we express it.
    *  expand the boundaries of your spiritual intelligence
    *  experience the flow of your creative energy and the impact of its power
    *  feel the vitality that emerges when your brain and heart are linked
    *  identify your heart’s true desire and discover the bliss of responding to it.
