Good Morning. Everyone should have a friend like my friend, Kirk. He would often care deeply enough to ask me tough questions about the vision and goals for both the Albany Peace Project and Numinous. Those conversations brought greater clarity and a realization. We realized that if Kirk had those questions… others probably did as well. So we decided to do these four videos, and they will be played each Sunday in January to “connect the dots” of this work.
My goal for these videos is to provide greater resilience education over all. As Scott Peck wrote as the first line in his NY Times best selling book The Road Less Traveled , “life is difficult” but these skills enable us to encounter demands with greater confidence. After 20 years, I still don’t live the work perfectly. But during challenging times, these skills have offer ed me great comfort and courage. I am confident they will offer you the same.
Today will be an audio meditation only.
BETHANY ANN GONYEA, MS is the Founder and Director of NUMINOUS, sponsor for the Albany Peace Project. For 20 years, Bethany Gonyea, MS has watched people invoke the power of focused healing intention to facilitate health and well being during hundreds of private and public biofeedback sessions. Biofeedback is essentially the art and science of intention, and it continually demonstrates through objective instrumentation that our minds have immediate and profound impact inside our bodies. But what if we harnessed the same intention outside our bodies? Could we positively impact the world around us? She founded the Albany Peace Project to help answer that question.
Ms.Gonyea’s life dramatically changed 23 years ago when she read her first prayer research study performed at San Francisco General Hospital by lead researcher Cardiologist, Randolph Byrd. This study demonstrated that when a group of patients in the cardiac unit had been the object of healing prayer, they showed significant improvement over the control group. Later, Ms. Gonyea learned about Transcendental Meditation Research that suggests when a relatively small group of people meditate, it correlates to a calming effect the entire population. For the past 20 years, she has been wanting to disseminate these powerful prayer and meditation research findings and add to this body of provocative research. When Ms. Gonyea learned of the intentional research performed by Lynn Mctaggert, author of The Intention Experiment and her team of prominent researchers who have performed over twenty studies of intention, that have demonstrated significant findings, she knew it was finally time to organize The Albany Peace Project.
She is the former Director of Biofeedback of the Albany TMJ & Facial, Biofeedback Specialist and longtime student of the ancient internal healing arts. Ms Gonyea was certified by three independent professional organizations as a Biofeedback Specialist.
She is currently Director of NUMINOUS, an inter-faith spiritual organization that specializes in teaching members reliable methods that heighten consciousness to strengthen and inspire lives of service. Her highest hope for this the Albany Peace Project is that as people create a peaceful space within themselves each day during the months of January 2013-2023 and invite others to do the same, they will be inspired by the still small voice within each of them to follow their own genius and change the world for the better in their own unique ways.
