55th Annual Spring Palestine Retreat: Ignite the Spirit Within

Ignite the Spirit Within with Patrick Belisle and Judith Stevens
The Transformative Spiritual Power of the Edgar Cayce Readings
A true retreat for the soul. Enjoy a weekend of practice principles from the “A Search for God” materials, experience guided reveries, small group work, and activities that will boost your soul development.
Reunite with Old Friends and Connect with New Ones as You Refresh Your Spirit at this Special A.R.E. Retreat.

The Edgar Cayce readings tell us many times that we are co-creators with God and that “Mind is the Builder.” The readings also give us guidance and tools to put those concepts into practice. This workshop will empower YOU to remove spiritual and physical roadblocks to create the life you really want and the confidence to know you are on the right path.

At this beautiful, peaceful retreat center, Judith and Pat will use principles from the Universal Laws and the Cayce readings to empower you to create the life you want in every aspect: relationships, livelihood, prosperity, and more. They have created a joyful, energetic experience that will give you practical tools to use in your daily life—taking Cayce’s esoteric ideas and putting them to real-life, tangible use. As Mr. Cayce says, it’s all about applying what we know!

You will:

  • Determine your spiritual ideal—which Cayce said is THE most important thing we can do in our lifetime—and express it as a beautiful mandala to inspire you and keep you centered.
  • Do a visualization of your future ideal-focused life and discover where you get spiritual energy and what is blocking you.
  • Learn gentle exercises to boost your immune/lymphatic system—cleansing the seven chakras/endocrine glands as Mr. Cayce suggested.
  • Explore and experience the deeper meaning of the reading, “Spirit is the life; mind is the builder, the physical is the result.”
  • Gain tools to unblock that energy and let it flow to balance spirit, mind, and body.
  • Create a plan to take your first steps toward that new life.
  • Leave empowered, knowing you are a capable creator!

You’ll also practice principles from the A Search for God materials, and experience guided reveries, small group work, and activities that will boost your soul development and help you overcome physical, mental, and even spiritual challenges in positive ways. AND you’ll try a unique meditation enhancement technique pioneered by Hugh Lynn Cayce using a lapis gemstone.

Great Value! For around $100 a day you get an all-inclusive, three-night retreat with meals, social activities, lodging, AND a transformative program with two dynamic speakers!

The Key with Echo Bodine in San Diego, CA

Unlocking Your Psychic Abilities for Everyday Living
The time is NOW to learn from renowned psychic teacher Echo Bodine. She will help guide you to new levels of awareness and give you tools and exercises to prompt a new breakthrough experience.
The Edgar Cayce readings tell us that we are intuitive by nature, and that we can develop our psychic abilities to a high level. But it isn’t enough to just become more psychic for its own sake—we need to put our abilities into practical use in our daily lives before these gifts take on real meaning.
  • Understand the difference between psychic abilities and intuition 
  • Learn problem-solving, or healing to a current situation, and find your natural way to fully integrate your spiritualgifts into your daily life 
  • Experience the process of reading an individual by using psychometry and other techniques for “tuning in.” 
  • Tap into your psi abilities by giving a reading on a photo for another person, providing insights 
  • Learn to use psychic protection and clearing to protect yourself from becoming a “psychic sponge” 
  • Discover ways to avoid burnout, stay grounded, and respect ethics and boundaries

By fully developing your gifts, you can improve the way you live your life. With warmth, humor, and down-to-earth guidance, Echo, a favorite presenter at A.R.E. Headquarters in Virginia Beach, will help make your journey to psychic awareness fun, inspired, meaningful, and applicable to your daily life. This course’s activities will help you to interpret what you see and coach you to better define, understand and practice your own unique gifts.

For this experiential training, you must bring, two photos of someone close to you (one could be of yourself) each in an envelope so the picture is not visible AND 1 piece of jewelry of someone close to you or your own jewelry.

Past-Life Regression Hypnotherapy: Level 2 Certificate Course

Featuring Peter Woodbury, MSW
Experience next-level training that will help you master the art and science of past-life regression hypnotherapy with one of today’s best, most-experienced instructors!

NEW advanced-level, in-depth training in hypnotherapy for past-life regression and deep soul healing.

As a hypnotist and regression practitioner, you have witnessed the dramatic effect past-life regression can have on a client—healing and improving relationships, health, career, and quality of life.

This unique, experiential course will help you continue to refine your skills with a variety of techniques designed to give you the tools to break through the most challenging scenarios and clients—even those who don’t really believe in past lives.

Edgar Cayce himself recommended hypnosis as a tool for healing and transformation. He advised that “the study of self…may best be done by suggestive forces to the body through hypnosis.”

This course will focus on both the spiritual and physical aspects of past-life regression therapy.
Taught by psychotherapist, hypnotherapist, and Harvard University graduate Peter Woodbury, MSW, who was trained by Dr. Brian Weiss, Dr. Allen Chips, and Dan Brown, PhD, you will go beyond the basics of regression and past-life recall, exploring and practicing with more advanced techniques, such as:

  • Working with difficult-to-hypnotize clients
  • Using energy work, sound, aromatherapy, and gems and stones to enhance the regression experience
  • Initial interview techniques to get a deeper understanding of what client is seeking/needing
  • Exit interview techniques to assist clients in integrating the experiences that unfolded during their session
  • Learning and applying a regression hypnosis coaching model
  • Other advanced techniques including age regression, affect bridge, post-hypnotic suggestion, and pre-sleep suggestion
  • Hypnotherapeutic directive experiences such as the light cleanse, desired future enhancement, and seeding positive habits

Techniques also demonstrated and practiced will include forgiveness, spirit releasement, future-life progression, life between lives experiences, accessing the Akashic Records, communicating with the higher self and with guides.

The course will follow the immersion model and you will have ample opportunity to practice as both client and therapist. Peter will also be available for optional group meals, allowing for informal sharing, learning, discussion, and networking.

Requirements: Candidates must have previous basic hypnosis training and experience practicing regressions. 

You will receive an A.R.E. Certificate of Completion, certifying that you have successfully completed this training through the A.R.E.

Regression Hypnosis Experiential Intensive

Featuring Expert Trainer and Psychotherapist Peter Woodbury, MSW
This advanced-level course, limited to 10 students, provides intensive individualized training in a group setting. The goal of the course is for students to experience, first hand, the healing and transformative power of regression hypnosis.

Peter, having conducted over 5,000 regressions, will bring his unique experience to the table to facilitate this intensive experiential program, guiding students through the variety of challenging regression hypnosis scenarios and clients.

The course is limited to 10 to create a close knit and intimate environment.  It is structured in a “round robin” format, with each student moving from client to regressionist. All regressions will be conducted in the group. Each student is allotted four direct hours: two hours as a regressionist and two as a client. After each of the 10 regressions, there will be discussion and processing of the experience. Peter will offer his feedback and insights to the regressionist regarding the experiences witnessed. Students will also be introduced to “co-regression,” where Peter will be available to co-regress with any of the student regressionists who would like to experience that modality.

Led by expert trainer and psychotherapist Peter Woodbury, MSW, the small class size will allow for more individualized experience and personal interaction with both the instructor and fellow students. In this safe, supportive environment, the deep healing potential of regression hypnotherapy can be explored and experienced.

Peter will also be available for optional group meals for additional interaction and sharing.

COURSE PREREQUISITE: You must have prior certification in hypnosis and have experienced multiple past life regressions as both client and therapist. Please note: Hearing assist devices and sound amplification are available, but the nature of this class may make it difficult for those who have trouble hearing whispered voices.

Certificate of completion awarded. 

Registration: Friday, March 15 at 1:00 p.m.
Program Ends: Sunday, March 17 at 6:00 p.m.
(End time determined by class size and progress)

The Enlightened Empath: The Pathway to Balance for Highly Sensitive People

Featuring Echo Bodine, Cindy Griffith, MA, Carol Ann Liaros, Peter Woodbury, MSW and M.E. Hart, JD

Gain simple, effective strategies to stop absorbing stress and physical symptoms from others and to protect yourself from narcissists and other energy vampires.

Are you someone who seems to absorb the physical or emotional energy of those around you? 
Do you know what’s happening to other people before they tell you?  
Are you quickly overwhelmed by noise and confusion? 
Do others tell you that you are too sensitive? 
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, this is the program you’ve been searching for.

This practical, empowering, and supportive weekend is designed to guide empaths and highly sensitive people through their unique challenges and help loved ones better understand their needs and gifts. You will gain valuable resources for nurturing your empathy and developing coping skills in our high-stimulus world, while fully embracing your gifts of intuition, compassion, creativity, and spiritual connection. 

You’ll also explore Edgar Cayce’s own experiences as a highly sensitive person and his recommendations for managing thoughts and feelings that are beyond your own personal realm of experience.

With gentle guidance and genuine compassion from our experienced instructors, you will learn to develop physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual balance on every level. Gain simple, effective strategies to stop absorbing stress and physical symptoms from others and to protect yourself from narcissists and other energy vampires. 

You will experience:

  • Exercises to help you identify your empath type and where you are on the empathy and sensitivity spectrum
  • Self-care tools for protecting yourself from sensory overload, exhaustion, addictions, and compassion fatigue while replenishing your vital energy
  • Ways to raise your energetic vibration and create boundaries and safe spaces to protect yourself from being influenced by other people’s energies
  • How to find the right work that feeds you and best matches your special gifts
  • Ways to navigate intimate relationships without feeling overwhelmed
  • Guidance for parenting and raising empathic children, including the empathic inner child within
  • Awakening the empath’s gift of intuition and deepening your spiritual connection to all living beings

“For being a ‘sensitive’ and capable of the interpretations of the emotions of others is not easy…” 
Edgar Cayce reading 1406-1

Restore your balance and find your center!

For any sensitive person who’s been told to “grow a thick skin,” here is a lifelong guide for staying fully open while building resilience, exploring your gifts of depth and compassion, and feeling welcome and valued by a world that desperately needs what you have to offer.

What is the difference between having empathy and being an empath?  Having empathy it means feeling compassion for another person’s joy or pain. But for empaths it’s much deeper. You actually feel other’ emotions, energy, and physical symptoms in your own body, without the usual personal boundaries that most people have.

Dreaming Your Future

 

Using the Wisdom of Your Higher Self for Guidance in 2019 and Beyond

 

This workshop, featuring Cayce teacher Cheryl Baer-Bernath CHt, goes beyond the more commonly understood symbolic dreams and will also explore the more esoteric side of the dream world. You’ll learn how some dreams are actually real experiences in the spirit world, traversing the illusions of time and space to explore glimpses into our future or allowing us to travel to distant lands or even attend spiritual classes in our sleep!

 

Your Higher Self has answers and guidance for you—if you only stop to listen!

 

Nothing of significance ever happens to us without it being first previewed in our dreams! Dreams are an integral part of our physical, mental, and spiritual development, and they are a natural way of knowing God and our true nature. We receive dream guidance on every aspect of our being—health, vocation, relationships, spirituality, daily life, and more. We are given insights into our decisions, our spiritual path, and our future, and can even receive insights into past lives or messages from our departed loved ones.

Our dreams most certainly do have meaning and we often have real spiritual experiences and flashes of psychic insights in our dreamtime! According to the Edgar Cayce readings, psychic simply means “of the soul,” and our soul—our higher self—can speak to us in dreams, where it communicates directly with our subconscious mind. This workshop goes beyond the more commonly understood symbolic dreams and will also explore the more esoteric side of the dream world.

Your dreams are your doorway to your higher self!

You’ll learn how some dreams are actually real experiences in the spirit world, traversing the illusions of time and space to explore glimpses into our future or allowing us to travel to distant lands or even attend spiritual classes in our sleep!

During this interactive, enlightening, and fun workshop, you will:

  • Explore the more esoteric side of the dream world, where the Soul communes with Spirit
  • Work with signs, symbols, and themes and their personal meaning to you
  • Unearth signs to your past lives through your dreams
  • Discover clues to your Soul’s plan
  • Learn to recognize your own private glimpses into the future
  • Identify a real visit from a departed loved one
  • Take home some simple tricks and tips to help you remember and record your dreams

Edgar Cayce gave hundreds of readings on the meaning and purpose of our dreams as an important part of our soul development!
