Cancelled Workshop: The Art of Crystal Healing

Kirby Seid, BA, MIM
July 25  10am–5pm

Kirby Seid, BA MIMOur earth is alive and evolving in parallel with our own human species and personal evolution. She holds the very blueprint of Life within our planet. Crystals are recording transmission and transformational tools. They are memory chips from which we can awaken and harness latent abilities. Co-creating with the crystal/mineral kingdom clarifies, amplifies, and elegantly quickens the evolutionary spark of our human potential.

The primary focus will be conscious connection and co-creation with the crystal kingdom, and to further enhance the tools being practiced in your AIM repertoire.

SHOW MORE

We will be discussing and exploring the synergy of crystals through:

  • Mechanics and metaphysics of crystal and colored light
  • Five attributes of crystal consciousness
  • Ancient crystal skull consciousness
  • Crystal meditation with the Light Labyrinth™ technology

You are encouraged to bring a few personal crystals/minerals or power objects to this workshop. Crystals will also be available for purchase during the event.


Kirby Seid, BA, MIM has traveled the world for crystals, fossils, and minerals.
He designs visionary tools for healing practices, spiritual teachers, and shamans. Kirby has a degree in psychology and teaches Crystal and Light Labyrinth™ workshops at institutes and conferences around the world. For more info: ancient-tech.com

Living in Flow: The Science of Synchronicity and How Your Choices Shape Your World

Sky Nelson-Isaacs MS
Friday, October 2  7pm

Fee: $20 cash at the door

Sky Nelson-Isaacs MC photoExplaining synchronicity and flow using an easy-to-understand scientific model, physicist Sky Nelson-Isaacs describes how you can have more synchronous events and a greater state of flow in your everyday life. Referring to a cutting-edge scientific theory of synchronicity, Sky Nelson-Isaacs presents a model for living “in the flow” — whether at home or at work — which allows for a more flexible relationship with daily experiences. The world wraps itself around our choices, and working with synchronicity gives us an idea of what to do next. When we align with circumstance, circumstance aligns with us. Living in Flow weaves wisdom about the nature of meaning, purpose, and the peak experience of flow with personal narratives of meaningful coincidence.

SHOW MORE

Nelson-Isaacs defines the current state of theoretical physics and quantum mechanics using illustrations and metaphors and explains the idea of Meaningful History Selection. Meaningful History Selection can help us explain why and how synchronicity happens and help us fit it into a rational worldview. By turns encouraging and empowering, Nelson-Isaacs tells us how our choices create meaning. If we understand how the responsivity of the cosmos works, then we can develop an informed relationship to meaning-making and purposefulness in our lives. From this we can align ourselves more effectively within our personal, professional, and community relationships and live more in flow. Book signing at end of event.

Sky is a theoretical physicist, speaker, author, and musician. He has a masters degree in physics from San Francisco State University, with a thesis in String Theory, and a BS in physics from UC Berkeley. Nelson-Isaacs has dedicated his life to finding his own sense of purpose, beginning as a student of the yogic master Sri Swami Satchidananda when he was less than five years old. His writing on topics like flow comes from integrating this experience into his life. He brings together the connection between synchronicity, physics, and real life using research and original ideas. An educator with nine years of classroom experience, Nelson-Isaacs is also a multi-instrumentalist and professional performer of award-winning original musical compositions.

What drives all of your life’s priorities, values, and decisions? In the sequel to “An End to Upside Down Thinking,” Mark builds a science-based worldview from which we can create a compass for living. In stark contrast to his prior belief system, Gober explains why life is actually full of meaning. From this perspective, he lays out how we might approach life accordingly, along with the well-traveled “awakening” path that we're likely to encounter. At this pivotal juncture in human history, approaching life in a new way is the antidote that our civilization desperately needs. Book signing: An End to Upside Down Living: Reorienting Our Consciousness to Live Better and Save the Human Species.

Mark is a senior member of Sherpa Technology Group in Silicon Valley, a firm that advises technology companies on mergers & acquisitions and strategy. He previously worked as an investment banking analyst in New York. He graduated magna cum laude from Princeton University. Book signing at the event.
