Looking for enlightenment?
A series of workshops came to my attention through one of my favorite yoga teachers. She has started a new company with Dr. Nithila Peter, a speaker, writer, and life coach. You can read more about her and the company at http://www.enknowledge.com/ You might look at the website and wonder if this is for you or if it sounds a little too "new-agey". That is what I always think when something piques my interest regarding spirituality, enlightenment, etc. You might wonder if it goes against spiritual beliefs that you have. In fact, Dr. Nithila told us that no one religion has a monopoly on this and has a very all encompassing approach as she speaks of the dark ages, the age of reason, and the differences between Western enlightenment and Eastern enlightenment. The company is offering a spring series with three different themes and they offer a $25 "orientation" workshop that is only 2 and a half hours for each one. If you wish to learn more, they offer complete workshops that take place over a Saturday and Sunday for a total of 8 hours. These are held in a meeting room at the Sheraton Hotel at Keystone at the Crossing. If you feel like you'd like to reach your highest potential, I would encourage you to consider these workshops. Last night's workshop was in lecture form and Dr. Peter even showed a couple of short clips from contemporary movies to help illustrate her ideas. You can set aside any trepidation that you might have that you will have to join hands, reveal your innermost thoughts, and sing kum-ba-ya with total strangers.
