Body Current® Basics: Attuning the Innate Intelligence

Attend LIVE in Denver, CO or LIVE STREAM to your home from anywhere around the globe. 

Date and Time: Wednesday December 10, 2014 7pm-9pm MST

What would it feel like to move throughout our day entraining and attuning with the “current of the moment” through the flowing current of abiding mind/body intelligence? Join us to experience simple and applicable practices to ignite the innate wisdom cultivating and navigating each moment through a heightened sense of awareness, acceptance and allowing. All are welcome. No experience necessary.

Learn applicable and empirically-proven foundation Body Current® practices to attune to your vagal tone (10th cranial nerve) self-directing your nervous system and choosing to regulate your response to stress and distress through simple choice. What if it was that simple? What if all it took was a true choice to step into the moment fully embodying our innate intelligence and experiencing life happening through us rather than done to us?

Join us as we playfully explore the terrain of our brain linking and syncing with the waves of our mind. Experience embodying the current moment through yoga therapy-based mindfulness and somatic practices layered on top of a current of sacred sound designed to empower a self-directed shift in our neurobiology. It takes just a moment to lay down a new neural groove and begin the journey into reprograming our very own mind/body map. Are you ready to make the choice?

Disclosure: These practices have been known to mitigate stress and stimulate self-directed neuroplasticity.

Investment: Pick your price option to fit your budget:  $20, $25, $35

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 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.


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.
