There is no pre-requisite to attend any of the "Great Awakening" series of programs.

 The New Earth
You will Learn:
The nature of what is occurring during this Time of Planetary Awakening, utilizing the Gifts, Wisdom, and Practices of Living Indigenous Elders, Prophecy Keepers, and Spiritual Luminaries, who speak directly to what is occurring at this Time, to what their prophesies hold, and are fulfilling, and how we can best engage in Personal Transformation in relation to the Living Energies, and the process that we are currently experiencing.
  • For instance, those who experience the 'compression of time' as stress or chaos in their lives, may be given a fundamental practice, as directed by the Living Elders, to engage in the fundamental, undulating rhythm of life which underrides all life as we know it.  By so doing, we enter into, and directly experience, this undulating rythm, and witness the universe supporting us within our life and work, rather than experiencing chaos, stress, or disharmony in our life around us.
  • Zacciah is an incredibly well knowledged teacher on the nature of the personal and planetary transformation, which is occurring at this time.  He will guide us in an enriching dialogue on what is and shall be occurring in relation to this new era on the Earth, as well as how to engage in the Living Energies of the Earth and Cosmos, and how to create our own reality, to enhance our wellness, and restore balance and integrity to our inherent states of being, to activate what the Elders call 'our Original Instructions.'  Zacciah utilizes teachings of Living Wisdom Keepers of this world, as well as, the next world, to bring forward the information, and practices, which will best serve those participating in the practice.

Authentic Practices & Empowerments in Self Discovery, Awakening, and Self-Realization, appropriate to These Times, Collaborating with the Fundamental Essence of Planetary Awakening and Ascension, and the Wisdom of the Living Elders who guide this work.
  • Zacciah is a Sacred Sound Channel, who offers authentic empowerments through Sacred Sound Transmissions from the Living Wisdom traditions of the 'other worlds.'  The Living Beings who come forward during this work bring incredible potency, and life changing experiences, as reported by the vast majority of participants in the work.

The New Leap of Humankind

We are in a time of catalytic change.
If you are experiencing an increase of frequencies, which is most profound, or evident?  An increase in light frequencies throughout the spectrum of your life, or an increase in stress and chaos?
These are signs of how well you are resolving the increase in your own vital energies, as the Earth and cosmos introduce a variant in our reality.

Are you able and ready to embrace this new reality?
Are you able and ready to contribute to the catalyst of transformation, or are you resistant to it?
Either way, you will find methodology to enhance your awareness of what is occurring during this time, and how to trigger greater cathartic release and resolution of the past, and embrace for the new destiny of humanity.

We are in an unprecedented time of change and growth.
Real transformation is occurring.
Step into your power of change,
and autonomy of self.

Realize your part in the whole,
and in the Whole configuration of humanity,
as we step over this precipice into a new World,
a new Reality, the New Earth.

It is time to make the leap.
It is time to ground ourselves in this New Earth,
to be fully a part of it, and in its new emergence.

We are collaborators, and co-creators in this journey.
She awaits and aligns with us, as do we with Her.

There are few ways to express the depth, breadth, and quality of focus these programs are bringing to participants.  It is transformative, extraordinarily expansive, yet, grounded, meaningful, and able to bring realization of how to integrate these new ways of being into our lives, through harmonious integration and living.  Thriving, versus surviving.

We are in a time of unique opportunity to crystallize a new way of being, a new reality for All Humanity.
We are each integral to this process.
Please, join with us in creating a new Reality for our precious Earth and humankind.
Join with us, in these sacred programs, humbly offered.
It is Time.
We wish you, all, many blessings in the Journey .

The World Healing Ceremonies

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.

 2012 & Beyond:

The Great Awakening

Preparing the Body, Mind, and Soul, for the Great Transformation in Human Consciousness;
Living, Learning, and Building Harmonious Relationships
With All Aspects of Creation

Co-Creating the Template of Heaven on Earth

and the New Earth &
Illumination of Consciousness
series of Classes

Ancient Peoples, and Indigenous cultures worldwide, knew a time was coming of great transformation in human consciousness.  Some believed it would be a time of great tribulation.  Some understood something different.
Some Say it is An Apocalypse?

But the prophecies and elders of most cultures worldwide say something far different.  That we are, literally, upon the precipice of a great transformation.
In part, it is, quite literally, up to us.  We must learn and understand who we are, and do our part in the creative plan in order for it to unfold.   Even for those who portray the worst possibilities, prophecy is only a tool of understanding a potential, a potential of signs of what may come if we do not change our path. 
It is time to make those changes.

We are entering, we are now in, that time of great transformation.
Whether speaking of the Maya prophecies of 2012, and the end of their calendar of days, what they call, "The End of Time as We Know It," the great Biblical prophecies of "The Lifting of the Veils,"  (which is the literal meaning for Revelations, and the Apocalypse,) or the Q'ero (Incan) prophecies of Taripay Pacha, the Time of Meeting Ourselves Again, we have entered the Age of Enlightenment, of Golden Illumination. 
We, as descendants of the Divine Plan, must take part, to re-establish order, harmony, and integrity in this realm of Creation, this place where we dwell.  Collaborators, guides, and teachers of this world, and of other dimensions, have always been with us, guiding and illuminating the way, sharing very common themes of how to come to enlightened awakening.  But, they have, especially now, come forward, sharing their teachings and wisdom through many great and respected teachers of this world.  Those, of 'the other realms,' the ascended masters of our world, and those of the StarNations, Elders from other worlds, have been guiding the Elders of many Indigenous and 'Wisdom' Cultures of the world throughout time. 
We view them as our Ancestors. 

They All speak a similar Truth. 

We must do our part, as co-creators of this reality.  We must take responsibility for our own lives and creation, and for the well being of this place of Refuge, this Sacred Earth.  It is time we learn our true nature as Holy Beings.  It is time we learn our place, and purpose here.  It is time we learn methods of awakening and embodying these higher, purer states of consciousness, which are our Divine BirthRight, and our inherent true nature.  It has been hidden from us.  But the Veils are lifting, they are thinning, and we can see more distinctly these hidden truths.  Who We Are, and, Why We Are Here. 

It is time we take our place.

It is time we establish our role as Inheritors of that Divine nature, as collaborators in this Great Creation.  The Way is clear.

We, simply, must do our part.

We each must learn our way, assume our role, and do our part. 
The Ancient Ones left roadmaps and clues for our work, for our transition, our ascension, into higher states of consciousness.  The Great Teachers of the Great Spiritual Traditions of the World have taught us the principals and methods throughout time.  We have not been listening.
They have embedded those messages in our collective memory; it is in the template of our Cells, our Dna, in the fabric of our souls, and in the stones of many ancient Temples.

The Time is Now.

The Ancient Ones have spoken.  The Elders have spoken.
The time to awaken, to listen, to cherish, to claim and embody our full nature, is now.
We have put it off too long.
We must each do our part, individually, and then collectively, to enter these great states of transformation and Illumination, to embody our own Divinity.
The time is now; we cannot wait until 2012 and imagine some miraculous force shall intervene or save us.  It is up to each of us to embody and assist in seeding the true template of Conscious Creation, contained within our cells, within our own true knowing.
We are powerful and Holy Beings.  We have been led to believe otherwise.
We have the power, the knowledge, the skills, to do this.

It is time we do our part.

Join with us in this Great Work.
Learn your part, through your own Divine Nature.
We are offering programs worldwide, to assist us in coming into greater understanding of what is occurring, and to enter a collective awakening, this time of Great Awakening, this Time of Meeting Ourselves Again!  These programs are planned, with the assistance of great teachers of this and other worlds, of ancient and contemporary knowledge, to learn how we may enter, sustain, and thrive in these heightened states of consciousness; what is, in essence, our true nature of Divine Origin, and Being.

Join with us, as we learn, individually, then collectively, how to engage this great template of sacred union, of Unity of Consciousness, of Oneness with the All, the Great One Word, the Universe, of all being.

Join with us, in your own way, or in these sacred programs, humbly offered.
It is Time.

We wish you, all, many blessings in the Journey.

These programs are facilitated by, Zacciah Blackburn, PhD, Director of the Center of
Light Institute of Sound Healing and Shamanic Studies. 
Zacciah is 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.
