The Gateway, Solstice 2012Solstice Celebration, 12.21.12
 2012 is here.  It Is Time.  The Doorway is before us.
 Shall we pass through this threshold of consciousness with conscious choice and evolutionary awareness for the benefit of all?
The Choice is upon us.
This evening, we collectively enter the Gateway of "The End of Time as We Know It,"  a prophesied time of Grand Alignment in a 26,000 year cycle of the Sun, Earth, and the Center of Our Galaxy, which indigenous cultures view as the "Mother of Creation."

The Maya tell us it is up to us, as to what occurs next:  what we choose to create, what dream we dream into reality;
this will now be the foundation of our New Reality.  
What is your Dream?  What is the Earth's New Dream?
Have you made the choice?  Do you realize that She has?
Is your dream in alignment with the New Dream of the New Earth?
By making right choices, in alignment with, in harmony with all creation, we create our individual, and our collective, new reality.
Come and Dream the New Dream with us,
as it emerges into the New Earth.
We are calling all planetary healers and lay persons to assist in this task at hand.
Dream the New Dream.  Create the New Reality.

Much additional information is in our new articles and newsletters online, along with
 preparatory meditative practices to enter alignment with these new energies emerging.
See latest articles listed here.
or newsletters here and here.
Listen to the MP3 just below.

This will be an in depth practice to gain direct illumination and manifestation of our chosen realities, open to experienced and novice practitioners.  
Come prepared to co-vision the New World into existence, as you wish it to be, 
Know it to Be, Imagine it To Be.

and, Aligning with, and Receiving the Gifts of Heaven    

Zacciah Blackburn, PhD Those of you who have worked with Zacciah in the past know you this will be an ecstatic practice.  Those who have not worked with Zacciah, come prepared to enter elevated states of well being, through our own awareness, coupled with the refined gifts of awareness that his specialized Sacred Sound Practices bring to the work.

We welcome you to join us in this celebratory, participatory practice.
Location, Accommodations, and Registration Information is just below.

  This program is facilitated by, Zacciah Blackburn, PhD, a highly skilled intuiive teacher and guide in sound healing and esoteric awareness practices for true awakening of consciousness.  He has worked in the field for over 3 decades, offers a 3 year program in therapeutic sound healing practices, and teaches internationally a variety of esoteric trainings in consciousness and earth healing practices.
He is Director of Education for the International Sound Healing Network.

Zacciah's work has long focused on the emerging transformation of human consciousness.

This work, 
The Great Awakening, continues a series of programs explicit to this new era of awakening which humanity is entering, with explicit steps to assist in this personal and collective awakening, long prophecied by many cultures of the world.

The Great Awakening
will offer keen insight into the nature of this incredible threshold of awakening, upon which humanity stands poised, as well as offer each participant a vehicle which can transport us into other worlds of understanding, experience, and self knowledge.  These experiences are especially heightened via the art of Sacred Sound Transmissions, through which Zacciah brings the sounds and voices of Holy Beings from other realms of consciousness, into our present environ,  which can heighten our sense of Living Reality.  The vast majority of participants find these experiences extraordinarily enriching, life altering, and deeply transformative.  At the same time, participants are left with practical exercises to carry into their every day lives.
