A Premier 3 Day Retreat
In Advanced Consciousness Work
July 21-23, 2017

Heaven and Earth:
Entering The Temple

A Special
3 Day Retreat
For Advanced Work In The Nature Of Consciousness and Healing

Working with the Classic Principles of Healing and Self-Realization

Claiming our Divinity

Drawing from Wisdom Schools and Indigenous Earth Mystery traditions of the world, the mythic carriers of wisdom in the subtle worlds, and the inherent wisdom that arises from the realized states, Zacciah will skillfully guide us through preliminary and advanced understanding of the nature of healing and self-realization. 

Inquiry into the nature of Self and its relationship with the living Cosmos, is inherent to the nature of embodied human existence, and is tempered in all traditional wisdom schools on this planet.   We shall enter heightened states of awareness to draw from our own innate nature and wisdom, through guided meditations and sacred sound transmissions. 

Self-knowing, Self-empowerment, and the claiming of our Divine Nature are integral to the process of Healing and Self Realization. 
We will be offered gateways to rich understanding and experiential awareness of the vastness of our Self and its integral connection to the Whole. 

The Temple of the Self is one with the Temple of the Cosmos.
We need only understand it, experience it, and accept it as an integral, living companion within our daily lives.  The hardships and suffering which we tend to persist in identifying with, in our daily lives, is dissolved through these states of realization.  But, direct intervention for dissolution of these states, is also offered within this practice.

A note on our
Therapeutic Sound Healing Training from our Teacher: 

"I so grateful to have the opportunity help broaden your awareness in the field of sound healing, and explore deep and rewarding comprehension of the use of sound as a therapeutic tool, for wellness and self realization, as a connector to the divine realm, a vehicle for channeling light energies into the earth, our bodies, spirit, and mind.  Novice and practitioners will both gain from our sound healers training.  Please let us know your level of interest.  Though my work is always based on intuitive guidance, the more aware I am of the level of abilities and interests of participants in class, the easier and more potent the work becomes.  Moreso, we are all creators in the classroom.  What we are open to, what we are ready for, what we ask for, and what we bring to each other, all opens doorways we might not have otherwise perceived.  I am also working with those seeking assistance in their own path, in private & professional studies, for personal healing, spiritual evolution, counseling, and therapies.  Please speak with us by e-mail, mail or phone, if we can be of greater assistance."
                                                         Many Blessings,
                                                            Zacciah Blackburn, PhD.
