Cindy will discuss the dangers of most conventional pain treatments and how to develop a safe, effective treatment plan that incorporates body-based, mind-based and spirituality-based approaches to maximize your healing potential.
“Doctors are trained to treat the result and not the cause. Cindy Perlin’s book reveals important and significant information about the many effective treatments for pain other than a pill prescribed by your doctor. I know from my experience as a surgeon that there are many treatments, from emotional to physical, which can heal the cause and relieve the resulting pain. This book is a wonderful resource for those in need of relief from pain. I have also personally experienced energy healing and the effectiveness of hypnosis in my life and work. I know from my experience that what Cindy shares speaks the truth.”
– Bernie Siegel, MD, Author of The Art of Healing and Love, Medicine & Miracles

The Jaguar Path: the Benefits of Shamanic Skills in Every Day Life – Part 2
For this event, we are so blessed to be able to learn shamanic skills outdoors through the invitation of Val Feldman, owner operator of Stable Gate Winery, only 15 minutes from Albany.
Shamans are men and women who heal themselves an train others to cultivate their power and abilities to heal by learning to shift into “second attention” First attention includes all of the ordinary information we experience through our five senses every day. However, Shamans also access information form “Second Attention”, which means they sense the additional energy and information flowing around the filters of our five senses. A power innate to all of us. “Listen to your heart” ” Trust your gut feeling” etc.
When we train to widen our perceptual fields we can access this wealth of information along with a quite confidence and inner peace. Through the tools you will learn you will accelerate your healing and find both courage and the capacity to make the changes your heart and higher self wants you to make!
By training our minds to sense and become aware of this subtle information the way shamans do, we gain access to a whole new breadth of information that can be highly advantageous to our path. We can even start to make changes without “white knuckling” them, because we have accelerated accessing the crisp clarity required for sudden change. As we learn how to access this occluded information we gain great wisdom and discernment, and our steps become more sure.
In this class, we are happy to invite back by popular demand, Ray Crist, founder of the Jaguar Path School of Yoga and Shamanism. Ray will be offering us some practical Shamanic tools and understandings He will share with us how Shamanic training can help westerners to:
– Learn tools that will help heal past traumas
– develop an abiding sense of personal power, integrity and authenticity
– understand your place and purpose in life
– develop innate psychic impressions (second attention) and understand them as a spiritual resource
– deepen creative inspiration and expression
– strengthen established regular spiritual practices
– deepen your understanding of your personal relationships with nature, people, and living environments
– experience deep mystical states that can elevate and stabilize you morally, spiritually and emotionally
This fall, Ray will be opening a chapter of his Jaguar Path Yoga School through NUMINOUS this fall, so we will be offering similar classes so that people can get a good experience of his work, and learn whether they would like to expand their training through the comprehensive 9 month program . Ray is a grounded teacher, who loves to combine contemporary life with established primordial wisdom practices to help us live lives of greater meaning, purpose, ease and majestic wonder.
In case of rain, we will be working in a large space indoors…bring your curiosity and a healthy desire to perceive things in your life differently!
