2017 Albany Peace Project Kickoff Program Concert –12/30
Participate in the Albany Peace Project This January and Awaken the Hero Within with the Albany Peace Project This January!
Friday Evening, December 30,
Unity Church of Albany
with amazing musicians, Mark Shepard, Joy Adler, and Roger Mock!!
As the testimonials say below, amazing things happen when people participate in the Albany Peace Project. The theme of this year is “Awakening the Hero Within,” because after three years of offering APP, we have heard some powerful stories of how when we advocate for the dignity and honor of others, we enlargen ourselves. As we participate with the Albany Peace Project, we feel greater dignity, self respect and deep purpose with our lives. In these times of great global turmoil, we can find a place in ourselves through these meditations, where we know we are connected to a Loving Intelligence that connects us all, and “vote with our heart” to accelerate the presence of peace on this planet. Taking a stand in our own hearts for peace, instead of feeling victimized by media accounts, makes our head go up and our shoulders go back. Meditation peace research has been demonstrated, however we need your help to get local measurable results. We can’t just talk about peace…we must “be it”
Come join us for a catalyzing uplifting evening on Friday Evening December 30 with exhilarating group of musicians, singers and and also inspiring speakers!!! The program concert will help you to start 2017 off right and set you on a trajectory to make 2017 your best year yet!
- After participating int the Albany Peace Project for two years, it is still hard to describe what participaing in the Albany Peace Project does…but it just changes you…for the better.
- I asked my husband to join me meditating Jan 1 as part of the Peace Project, not something he would choose to do. We selected 5:00 pm as our time. Yesterday at 4:50, he asked if we were going to be meditating. Thank you for creating this project. Peace starts at home. It has descended here!
- I was very moved by today’s meditation, and I’m very moved by your work. Thank you.
- First, your guided meditations this year are beyond wonderful. I am loving them all.
- You’ve got some interesting people you’ve interviewed.

The Art of Feminine Presence
1/8/17 at 2;00
Spirit Tree Connections
987 New Loudon Road,Latham NY
If you are a woman who has been on a personal and spiritual growth path for quite some time and wanting to stop pushing to make things happen, come and experience an informational session and demonstration on the Art of Feminine Presence. It is a series of unique and tangible practices that increases a woman’s presence, feminine energy and vocal power so she can be heard, be seen and inspire change. These are practical tools that create massive results. You will see the change in yourself and other women immediately. It is undeniable. It is not where we intellectually discuss whether the feminine needs to be more present in our society. We already know that. It is not that we dance on a beach with hip scarves in the hope it will change our lives. We can do that on our own. Imagine walking into any room or any situation with a magnetic presence and attract the attention you want in your career and in your relationships. Your life will be transformed.
Jill Boyd is a certified teacher in the Art of Feminine Presence. She is an iconic image stylist. She is licensed in New York as a registered nurse and aesthetician. She received a masters degree from Long Island University in Community Mental Health Counseling.

Special Opportunity for people meditation for the Albany Peace Project!
Individuals who meditate for each of the 15 days in January during the Albany Peace Project this year, are able to get 30% off of a float….which makes any meditation better!
What is Floating?Floatation therapy provides a unique experience where you can relax the mind and body simultaneously. You enter a float tank with about 1,200 lbs of epsom salt dissolved in 10 inches of water that is warmed to skin temperature. The dense solution lets you float effortlessly, regardless of your body type, and allows your body fully relax without gravity pulling you down. There are a lot of physical benefits to soaking in epsom salt – muscle recovery, soothing aches & pains, sunburn relief, skin exfoliating, healing dry skin.
Float tanks are often called sensory deprivation tanks because they provide an environment that reduces sensory input, for the first time since birth your brain no longer has to process all the sights, sounds and smells around you. Without gravity, temperature or sensory input to process the brain slows down and begins to produce theta waves which kind of act as a bridge between the conscious and subconscious mind.
Theta wave state promotes creativity, relaxation, learning ability and focus, floating can encourage and even propel you into a state of meditation, allowing you to reorganize your thoughts, reduce stress and even make positive suggestions and reprogram the subconscious mind for positive change in your life.
So, Why Float?
Some people float to relieve pain or just to unwind and keep their stress levels in check, some float for mental clarity or introspection. The restricted environment of an isolation tank allows just about anyone to reach deep meditative states after a few sessions making everybody’s experience a unique and personal journey.
Research on floating and Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy (R.E.S.T.) has been conducted since the early 1960’s after it’s invention by Dr. John C. Lilly. A lot of claims can be made about it’s benefits but it’s often best to keep it simple, so here are a few of the primary benefits of floating in an isolation tank.
The first and best reason everyone should try it out, think about it, when was the last time your brain got a chance to rest? Inside a float tank there are no sounds or smells, nothing to see, no pop-up ads or distractions, heck, there’s barely any gravity dragging you down. It’s the ultimate stress free environment, in fact just 1 hour in the tank is comparable to 4 hours of deep sleep, it’s the perfect reset.
Immediately after laying down in the tank you begin to feel every muscle in your body unwind and loosen up, your blood pressure starts to drop as you begin to hear your heart rate (can’t turn that sound off) and blood circulation increases throughout the body. This relaxed state combined with a 1,000 lbs of epsom salt is an excellent way to boost recovery in athletes and to reduce chronic pain and inflammation. Recent studies have shown that floating may be the best therapy to mitigate the effects of fibromyalgia and other neurological pain disorders. We are participating in a massive world wide case study on the effects of floating on fibromyalgia, if you’d like to learn about how you could try it for less than half-price, check out the Fibromyalgia Flotation Project.
Think about the last time you sat down to reflect upon an issue without immediately getting distracted by a phone, facebook or a crooked picture frame on the wall. Meditation is a means to mental clarity but it requires a great deal of discipline and practice, floatation therapy provides a shortcut to these deep introspective states which can enhance creativity, clear the mind and allow one to overcome previously daunting life challenges. Floating allows your brain to fall into a slower brainwave known as theta which is often described as a bridge between the conscious and the incredibly powerful subconscious mind.
