The Awakening The Illuminated Heart Workshop
The new teachings of Drunvalo Melchizedek
Many people are familiar with Drunvalo Melchizedek's book The Ancient Secret of The Flower of Life which introduced many of us to sacred geometry, the Mer-Ka-Ba and the human energy field. Also the bestselling book, Living in The Heart.
This entirely new workshop, first introduced by Drunvalo in July 2011, “Awakening the Illuminated Heart” is the result of Drunvalo’s 40 plus years of research and understanding of the nature of human consciousness. His entire life’s work is represented here in this workshop. The teachings are ancient knowledge now translated into modern expressions and understandings. This is the simplest, easiest, most direct teaching on the subject of Ascension that Drunvalo has ever presented and provides the inner tools needed to truly enter the Ascension process and to learn to truly live in your Heart.
Viola Rose has received certification and encouragement from Drunvalo to share this profound work and is offering the 4 day workshop regularly in Portland and will also be travelling to other cities in the NW as well.

Pacific Northwest Film Premiere
Saturday, August 18, 11:30 am
Kiggins Theatre in downtown Vancouver
1011 Main St. in Vancouver, WA
After the screening the Writer-Director of Dreams Awake Jerry Alden Deal will conduct a question and answer session with the audience. The film has the distinction of being the only film written, shot and edited in the Mt. Shasta area, and is getting recognition for its stunning locations in that area. The film stars Erin Gray, Gary Graham and Tim O’Connor.
The film story’s logline reads: “While on vacation a disconnected family gets stranded near mystical Mt. Shasta and amazing possibilities open up. A glimpse into the subtle but intense possibilities of the human spirit, this mystical drama delves into that magical lore between reality and illusions, dreams and awake, and life and immortality.”

Your life is a reflection of your preprogrammed subconscious beliefs that create perception of how you view yourself and others and what you are able or unable to achieve in life.
PSYCH® can shift your limiting subconscious beliefs to those of empowerment, quickly and easily. Dr. Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., author of the bestselling book, The Biology of Belief, recommends this process highly as it has helped him “undo his limiting beliefs.”
