THIS SPECIAL TIME
We are in a time of unique opportunity to crystallize a new way of being, a new reality for All Humanity.  In this practice, we shall transform those imprints of understanding that we have allowed to misinform, entangle, obscure and misdirect us, from our life purpose and true destiny.  And we shall enhance those imprints which more fully empower us to seek that in harmony with our true nature and purpose.  

We shall work directly with the wheel of manifestation of our own, unique Reality, and the imprint of our consciousness upon our Destiny.

TURNING THE WHEEL
                                                                            
(Description of program is incomplete, and will be more fully defined in the near future.)
   
In Eastern wisdom, realized beings such as Kwan Yin are seen riding a 'dragon.'  In Eastern understanding, this symbolizes someone who has surrendered to, and yet mastered, pure states of consciousness, allowing one to come into complete collaboration with the elemental forces of nature, realizing the two are as one.

It also represents someone who has mastered their wheel of destiny, by choosing a path free of suffering, or 'samsara.'

In this time, as we learn the cycles of this wheel, and how it turns, we, also, learn how to direct our imprints upon the wheel of manifestation, and how to liberate ourselves from the continuing cycles of distress and chaos that appear as the cause our suffering and unhappiness.

We, also, learn the alignment with the greater wheel of time, through entering the dimensional doorways of "all time and space,", and learn how to more appropriately interact with it, in harmony with the greater wheels of life.
We are but a cog within this wheel, yet as we learn to act harmoniously, and for the benefit of all life, we enter greater relations with the greater wheel.

The Blue Medicine Buddha practice focuses upon attuning to the consciousness of that one whom not only liberates us from suffering, but from the cause of suffering.  It is a time to enter greater illumination of how to end our suffering, and enter the luminous aspects of self, as our primary motivator and manifestor, from which harmonious manifestation evolves.

Very Special Ceremonies, Monday, Feb 4; an optional program, open to participants of the entire weekend:

 

BLUE MEDICINE BUDDHA EMPOWERMENT
  • Based on Traditional Tibetan Ceremony and Transmissions
To assist us during these most special and precious times, Zacciah will administer his first public Medicine Buddha Empowerment, during an optional Monday practice.

The ancient teachings tell us that even seeing an image of the Medicine Buddha can confer inconceivable benefits;;  they, also, reveal that just hearing the name of the Medicine Buddha brings the same benefits.
Simply chanting his name is said to bring, also, inconceivable merit (good benefit, karma.)


"If one meditates on the Medicine Buddha, one will eventually attain enlightenment, but in the meantime one will experience an increase in healing powers both for oneself and others and a decrease in physical and mental illness and suffering."
                           —Lama Tashi Namgyal
 
We shall continue our World Sound Healing Ceremonies, learning to become a vessel for pure intentions and healing prayers for the World, for the benefit of others, and sounding them into manifestation.  Each of our primary practices here, in Vermont, we offer some form of special world healing service.   

This time, we ask you each to bring your prayers, your drums, your rattles, your voice, to collectively create a matrix of real, healing affirmations, for the planet, to sing them into existence.  We have the power of creation within us.  We shall speak about this.  We each carry a matrix of healing within us.  We each have the ability to collaborate with Creation to bring real Light into the world.  And, we ask you to bring yours, to collectively create a vision, and sound it into the world, for the benefit of all.  
We, also, have been invited to join with world - wide Hathor meditations as well.

For those not familiar with these practices, Zacciah pulls from the wisdom of numerous traditions he has been initiated in, from the Indigenous Americas (North, South, and Central, with blood lines in two North American cultures,) to Hinduism, Qabbalism, Tibetan Buddhism, Mystical Christianity, Taoism, and Egyptian Mysticism (with blood lines in Druidic and Celtic cultures, as well.)  The Holy Beings of the subtle realms, the 'Pure Realms of Light and Sound "(Tibetan description of these other realities,) where the realized beings of these lineages of spiritual traditions, come to join with us, and bless us with their presence.  It is those which arise from each of these traditions who bring such great richness to the practice.  And, in the practices, Zacciah shall bring through, in his Sacred Sound Transmissions, the voices, the power, the empowerments, and, the initiations of any or each of these: among them are Tara, Quan Yin, Mary, Mary Magdalene, Innana, Shekinah, Isis, Hat'or, Sekhmet, and many other streams of the Divine Feminine, which manifest through the many cultural lineages.  From the Divine Masculine streams, it might be Yeshua, Horus, Thoth, those of the Elohim, the Seraphim, the Melchizedek lineages, Buddhist and Hindu lineages, Native Ancestral beings, and those of the StarNations, the Hathors, and others, who come through him, and guide him in his work.  In his own personal evolution, it is, especially, through the Egyptian Lineages of Hat'or, Isis, and Sekhmet, the voices, and powers of the Sacred Feminine have touched, and taught him.  Though, the teachers are many, of both sides, this world and the next.  

The majority of participants report, after these practices, to, also, be deeply touched.
Often sharing with us, these are the most important, powerful, life transforming, evolutionary practices they have engaged in.
We welcome you to join us.

In this overall body of work, we are fundamentally 
Co-Creating the Template of Heaven on Earth
 Re-invigorating the original matrix, or Original Instructions,
for harmony with all life
embedded in each of us, at a soul level, and at a level of cellular memory,
as well as the often unused portions of our DNA matrix.

This page may continue to be updated.
Please check back for further information, or join our newsletter for updates!
See our recent newsletter with an in depth article relating to this work.

 
The foundation of these programs is constantly updated from information arising from the Star Elders. Living Wisdom Keepers, & others guiding this work.  Though constantly evolving, practical exercises to enter awakened lucid states of consciousness (what is also refered to as enlightenment, or ascended states of consciousness,) will be offered, utilizing Sacred Sound, which will enhance the participants experience significantly.
These are being offered, also, at a time in deep correspondence to the Maya Calendar days of great Transformation, Awakening, and Renewal.
We are in a time when a new window of opportunity has opened for human consciousness to more readily access understanding and experience of the Unity of Creation.  This is fundamental understanding to this entire period of time, and will be specific to our practice.
Join with us, in these sacred programs, humbly offered.
It is Time.
   
We wish you, all, many blessings in the Journey .

  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.
