Step out of fear and learn the language of the noble heart, heal conflict and spread peace. Receive guidance to resolve problems, find inspiration and celebrate the deep soul wisdom that is already yours. Virtue means power, strength, integrity—inner qualities that we all have. Virtues are the content of our character, the elements of the human spirit. They grow stronger whenever we use them. Each of us has both Strength Virtues we can rely on, and Growth Virtues that are the challenges of our character. A lifelong learner never gives up hope that at any moment, we can awaken a virtue by choosing to live it. The Virtues Project™ is all about bringing virtues to life.

Non-Violent Communication (NVC) is a technique created by Marshall Rosenberg for communicating in a way that encourages genuine connection and authentic expression. It’s a way of speaking that allows one to share even their most uncomfortable feelings, while involving no judgements, blame, or accusations and thus increasing the chances of the communication being received in a productive way.
There is a language which predates all the known historical languages, a language composed not of words but of pure Sound-Vibrations. The power of this language is in the sounds of its letters or syllables, which form the basis of all the later ancient tongues, the Sacred Languages, and all the many modern tongues. Knowing this language, the Ancient Warriors of the Dawn of Time understood all Nature and acquired many powers.
Saturday, September 30 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Join us for a powerful practice of chanting the sacred mantra Om (Aum). This is an ancient technique re-introduced to the world through the Guru Lineage of Mahavatar Kriya Babaji and Paramahamsa Vishwananda for the healing of humanity and Mother Earth. The practice comes from ancient times when mankind was more connected to higher wisdom and living in harmony with the universe. The Rishis, the ancient sages and the source of the Vedic scriptures, utilized this powerful, primordial vibration to bring about healing to people and nature. We are all important agents of change to bring balance to our world — whether it be in ourselves, our families, our society or our environment.
