Living With Intention:  Erasing the Neural Networks Responsible for Negative Thought Patterns, Using Memory Reconsolidation, A Neuroplasticity Tool – Tuesday June 2 at 7:00

Shenendehowa Adult Community Center, 6 Clifton Common Ct, Clifton Park, NY

Have you ever felt you changed a bad habit permanently, only to find it re-emerge at a later time?  Do you still feel anxious when you are not meditating?  Do you try to think positive uplifting thoughts but still find yourself rapidly slipping into negative thought patterns?

Although we may change  outward behavior, it is common for our old negative emotional reaction patterns to still be consolidated — stored in the brain’s long-term, “implicit memory” circuits.  If we don’t work to skillfully change these circuits, they remain indelible and permanent for our lifetime.   Although we can build different neural networks with new patterns of behavior, we often build these new networks in our brain “over” the old programming.

Because the brain is an energy hog, when we have low energy, we quickly revert back to outdated thinking patterns because the neural pathways for the old behavior still exist.   They have only been “written over” with the new behavioral programming.

This is a powerful understanding to have for those of us who are dedicated to a spiritual path.

The spiritual life is one of reprogramming and redefining past experiences while developing greater intimacy and communication with the Infinite.  This Divine intimacy requires a mind that is available, not stuck  in the past, especially if were are going to be cultivating the art of intention to create something new in our lives.

So….How do we actually ERASE the brain of old programming?

In this NUMINOUS talk we will apply what current neuroplasticity research has revealed, that the only way to to actually erase old mental patterns is through skilled  memory reconsolidation.     We stop trying to abandon the lower self, and finally start integrating it with our higher nature.   This facilitates  the more stable and sustained elevated consciousness required for successful intention.

Spiritual Conversations For Men, Tuesday June 2 at 7:00 PM

Glenn Hogue & Tim Moon, Fo’Castle Farms, 166 Kingsley Road, Burnt HillsTuesday

The conversation started on April 7 and it was spirited!  Participants learned that there are many topics to explore regarding men’s spirituality, and they were grateful for the opportunity.

Most spiritual programs are predominantly attended by women, which often causes women’s issues to be the focus of such programming.  However, at NUMINOUS, we wanted to provide new programs that would specifically support Men’s spiritual discoveries as they do the significant work of pioneering how to blend ancient spiritual teachings with contemporary culture’s expectations of masculinity.

This is critically important work, as we seem to be in a time in history when all sorts of established paradigms are falling.   The rugged individualism of the late 20th century is being challenged on all levels, especially in relationships. The traditional roles between male and female are also being blurred as well.

How do we maintain the integrity of our yang (masculine) energy while assimilating the gentler aspects of spirituality and still be effective in this world?  How do we manage the competitiveness of the business environment and not loose our soul?  How do we learn how to manage ourselves and others in a way that honors each of us?     How do we learn how to connect in relationships but still stand firm in understanding our own needs.   Many of us have felt the burden of doing life “alone” and would prefer to find a way to collaborate with others, but find ourselves exhausted  as we try to partner as well.  In these discussions we will learn how to integrate input from Spirit, women, and other men, without loosing our vital connection with ourselves.

Learning how to skillfully partner, listen, and still assert our truth seems to be a huge piece of the mission of our generation of men. These Spiritual Conversations For Men will give us an opportunity to gain answers to the some of the most challenging questions of our lives.  In a quiet environment, we can safely discuss the biggest puzzles of our lives,  and obtain invaluable insights from others who have grappled with the same questions.  Through this exchange, we learn that we don’t have to do “life alone.”  Also, we learn how good it feels to be supported and to provide the same meaningful support for others.   These discussions will offer us clarity and direction as we learn to connect, and yet still hold individual balance.

Numinous will be offering Spiritual Conversations For Men on a bi-weekly basis starting at Fo Castle Farms.  We are extremely fortunate to have Tim Moon, MA, CASAC and Fo Castle Owner/Operator Glenn Hogue.  These two have over 55 years of combined spiritual understandings to chart this prosperous territory.

Approaching Agony – Tuesday June 23 at 7:00

Shenendehowa Adult Community Center, 6 Clifton Common Court, Clifton Park, NY 12065

There are many times in life where we know we need to confront something BIG, like a death, divorce, bankruptcy, or a serious illness.   No one gets out of this life unscathed, as the longer we live, the more difficulties we face.

Thinking about our indomitable challenge often causes pits in our stomach, and feelings of unfairness, resentment, wastefulness, and loss as we come to begrudgingly acknowledge the only way out of our challenge is through it.  Facing these huge shakedowns with only corporeal skills can feel daunting.

When our worlds are getting rocked, is it possible to face these shattering life challenges with dignity and hope?       Absolutely!

That is the blessing and the promise of the spiritual path.

In this Numinous talk, we will discuss how to face life’s shakedowns with dignity.  Because the truth is is that these difficult times have the perfect alchemy to convert our base natures into pure gold.  It has been asked,  where else is there room for the sorrows of the world except in a broken heart? During these times we come to rely on our skills of presence, self-compassion, and deep honoring to sweeten the bitter soup we are asked to swallow.  This approach to challenge enables us to be abundantly nourished by our spiritual path during difficult times so that we emerge from the other side of the challenge more whole and integrated, as the challenge taught us to abide and trust in a greater peace.  We delight in the fact that we have become enlarged by the experience, instead of diminished, with a wider more resolute perspective to face future challenges.
