I am deeply grateful for this weeklong journey I just completed with you.  This is the first time I’ve committed to taking 30 minutes daily for me and it changed my life.  I felt a strong connection to the other women in the circle, but was able to listen in to the daily practices from my home at a time of day that worked for me.  This format and sisterhood gave me the gift of getting to know myself on a deeper level while empowering myself with a daily practice and personal journey into the sacred. Thank you, Shanti!” –  Karen

VERYDAY WARRIOR TRAINING

Healing and transformation doesn’t come from wishing, it comes from doing. Many of us have been told what we SHOULD do but not HOW to do it. In this hands-on immersion into practical Neurosculpting® we’ll dive deep into HOW to transform old limiting patterns, heal emotional wounds, and rewrite better mental programs. This is the direct curriculum which is outlined in NEW BELIEFS, NEW BRAIN: Free Yourself from Stress and Fear. This immersion serves as a transformational platform for life-long healing and qualifies as the first pre-req towards the Neurosculpting® Facilitator Certification Training for those who continue onward.

In this program you will learn to:

*Identify your personal limiting beliefs

*Learn basic neurotransmitter manipulation (dopamine, norepinephrine, and acetylcholine)

*Create a mind-body map for neurological associations

*Navigate and use six reprogramming/meditation techniques

*Grounding, neutrality, boundaries/auric space, recalibration/gold sun, programming, right-brain/left-brain communication

*Apply a neurological overlay to existing limitations

*Create a new and limitless belief system

BODY CURRENT® CONDITIONING

Body Current® conditioning combines the latest research in neuroscience with evidence-based teachings of the ancients to turn on our innate body intelligence.  By laying down new neuromuscular grooves (or pathways) in present moment time through the communication of sensation in the body, we unwind old conditioning resetting our nervous system and shifting our neurobiology.  This leads to synergy and alignment of  body, mind and spirit in current time releasing old constructs and even chronic pain while restoring health and vitality.  The highly accessible and effective Body Current® tools include shamanic journeying, yoga therapy practices, physical fitness exercises, somatic and physical therapy, embodied movement and mindfulness techniques.

In this program you will learn to:

*Experience you innate body intelligence

*Release old constructs and conditioning that no longer serve you through the wisdom of mind, body, spirit mapping

*Learn specific and unique Body Current® techniques designed by Shanti rooted in yoga and somatic therapy, pranic healing and neuromuscular conditioning.

*Rejuvenate and radically restore your body with intention and clarity.

*Discover radical embodied present moment awareness techniques to lay down new neural grooves (or pathways) to shift your neurobiology and reboot and restore your nervous system.

SACRED ART FROM THE HEART

Art is an expression of the body, mind and heart. Using kindergarten art techniques, Sacred Art from the Heart allows individuals to tap into their creativity without being intimidated by skill or craft. When we are given the freedom to express in color, shape, and form, without an expectation of the final outcome, creation becomes a meditation. This creation meditation opens channel to the subconscious and emotional realms where you can dive into the depths of your heart.

This retreat is open to all levels and experience.
