It’s time to DREAM BIG—for yourself and for the world. On this momentous New Year discover the synergy between what the world needs and what you are here to give. This journey from scattered desires to focused vision culminates in a 2012 New Year’s Eve ceremony of passage. 

Dana has distilled a simple yet profound process to widen the aperture of inspiration and revelation. Using “right brain” modalities—visual, kinesthetic, symbolic, and intuitive—she helps us activate capacities that reach beyond the parameters of ordinary awareness. She teaches us to access—and transform—our future.

UPDATE: We are thrilled to add something very special to the New Year’s Retreat! On Saturday evening we will experience a unique inner journey with the transportive music of international singer/songwriter Angelika.

Angelika travels the world with her interfaith music ministry- touching all who long to hear the forgotten music of their own souls. The vibration of deep peace and joy in this music cuts through the constructs of the mind to the essence of being and flows softly into the heart without effort. Angelika sings ancient Sanskrit healing chants, mantras, prayers in different languages and her own original songs in English, German and Sanskrit. She plays many instruments including guitar, keyboard, harp and newly invented instruments such as the sound column. Her healing music is a transportive experience that heals the psyche and uplifts the soul.

Saturday night will feature a special concert after dinner, and later in the evening Angelika’s celestial music will accompany our experiential Ceremony of Passage as we bring in 2012 with powerful intention.

Excerpt from Envisioning a New World:

In the heart of the longest night, we know the light is born.

Whether Christmas, Chanuka or Kwaanza, we are called to the light. Not of reason nor of sense does the light burn through the night, but as a miracle of hope. At the darkest time of the year; when the day is shortest, and the night the longest, a seed of light is planted. Against the testimony of the senses, which still see only darkness, the light increases. Read more...

This course is a profound inner journey of personal transformation and participants will gain simple and tangible tools to be applied in daily life and work: 

  • Quickly access peak states of creative flow
  • Cultivate steady and accurate intuition applicable to life’s challenges
  • Discern subconscious from ‘super-conscious’ insights
  • Activate multiple modes of intelligence
  • Increase the coherency and magnetism of your vision and intention
  • Use imaginative intelligence to expand your perception
