Beyond Gender: a Sacred Exploration of Divine Flow

Dr. Kevin Ross Emery

Beyond Gender RetreatMen are not from Mars and women are not from Venus!  We are all expressions of humanity, rooted here on Earth.

There are those of us who identify as men or women and others who identify with neither label, but traverse the spaces of mystery in between.

There are also Sacred Twins that meet in joyous union within us, reuniting in the energy of Divine flow that moves beyond all polarity.

Yoga and Meditation Retreat

Lino Laure and Maxwell Starkhouse

Meditation Waterfall ImageThe tradition of practicing yoga and meditation (dhyana) are two complimentary systems. They have been around for thousands of years. Because of their universal and beneficial effects, they have both withstood the test of time. Many people from all walks of life enjoy the practice of yoga and meditation today in our modern world. Yet, their roots come from the rich traditions of the Vedic sciences of India.

About the Facilitator(s)

Lino LaureLino Laure has been practicing meditation for over twenty-five years.  A year after learning meditation, he had a spontaneous spiritual awakening, as the surge of kundalini energy awakened within him prompting a whole new level of life, self-awareness and direction. For over 16 years he has received guidance by his teacher, a Dhanur Vedic master healer from Kerala, India, learning aspects of yoga, meditation and healing arts. Lino enjoys sharing what he has learned, and helping individuals gain a better understanding as they practice the art of meditation and yoga.

Maxwell StarkhouseMaxwell Starkhouse is a yoga instructor, massage therapist, dancer, poet, musician and artist.

A quote from Gary Renard:

About the Facilitator(s)

Gary Renard

Gary R. Renard

Gary Renard, the best-selling author of The Disappearance of the Universe and Your Immortal Reality, was born on the historic North Shore of Massachusetts. He became a successful professional guitar player, but during the harmonic convergence of 1987, he heard a Calling and began to take his life in a different direction. At the beginning of the 1990’s, he moved to Maine, where he underwent a powerful spiritual awakening. As instructed, he slowly and carefully wrote Disappearance over a period of nine years. In the fall of 2003, after much encouragement from other speakers and students, Gary began to present talks and workshops in public. His speaking career took off remarkably fast, and today he lectures internationally. Combining a disarming sense of humor with radical, cutting-edge metaphysical information and experiential exercises, this acclaimed teacher of A Course in Miracles has been described as one of the most interesting and courageous spiritual speakers in the world. Over the past seven years, he has spoken in 43 states, 23 countries, and was the keynote speaker at the International A Course in Miracles Conferences in Salt Lake City and San Francisco. Gary is also the most recent recipient of the Infinity Foundation Spirit Award. The award is given to a person who has made a meaningful contribution to personal and spiritual growth. Past recipients include Dan Millman, Ram Dass, Gary Zukav, James Redfield, Byron Katie, and Neale Donald Walsch.

Dennis Dehler

Dennis agrees with Pattabhi Jois' statement in the movie Enlighten Up that the main goal of yoga is to discipline the mind. Dennis feels that Kundalini Yoga is one of the most effective, fun and quickest methods to practice the art of disciplining the mind.  His approach is gentle and focuses on opening up the energy centers in the body with Kundalini Yoga exercises. He has studied with Kundalini master Gurmukh and completed Yogi Bhajan's Kundalini Teacher Training. His classes are invigorating, grounding, intuitive, fun and leave you feeling centered, calm and smiling.
