Dear Viriditas Community,

Last week, I shared with you that David and I have begun a training at the Visionary Business School for socially conscious entrepreneurs. In addition to that, I also will be embarking upon a study of the highest level of Yogic Mystery School™ and School of Mantra with Russill Paul, a beloved teacher I’ve had in the past. The course is called The Sacred Mystery of Ganesha and we will begin with a powerful mantra from the Upanishads linked to the Atharva Veda.

We’ll be working at the deepest level of obstacles that we can remove at this time in our lives. This will support moving into the highest level of consciousness that we’re able to attain at this time. As a result, our lives and relationships will be deeply enriched. We will experience not only the sounds and words of the mantra, but the forms of energy that are able to transform us, our relationships, and the world. Then we can be the best we can be in our world!

Russill’s passion is helping others live an abundant spiritual life energized by love and graced with inner peace. He has worked towards this end for the past 30 years, bringing his gifts of healing music and knowledge of spiritual empowerment to the lives of thousands.

He’s been teaching spirituality in the west for 26 years at some of the most respected institutions, centers and conferences in the US and Canada. His formation was that of a Benedictine monk and yogi in India. Apart from teaching his online programs and live events around the US and other parts of the world, he’s been a professional musician for 35 years, a music producer for 25 years, and a published author for 11 years.

I first met Russill Paul twenty years ago when he was my professor at the University of Creation Spirituality. I vividly remember the day I first experienced him chanting. I was profoundly moved by the power of his voice and spirit and knew that I wanted what he had. When I found out that (like Hildegard!) his formation was that of a Benedictine I was even more drawn to the man. To find out more about him and his programs I invite you to go to russillpaul.com.

I will be sharing the highlights of this program with you in the months ahead. For now, I can tell you that in one of the beginning meditations as we chant: “Om Lum Namaste Garnapatayai” we hear Russill’s words saying: “Feel you can accomplish anything. Feel all powerful. The power of the Universe flows through you. The power of the stars resides in you. Unimaginable power courses through your being…. Feel the power growing inside you. All obstacles in your life are being removed now…Feel the living power of Ganesha swelling inside you, expanding inside you….you see your way clearly and you are able to blast through any obstacle that stands in your way. You are unstoppable.”

When I heard this meditation for the first time, I smiled. One of the keys to success in the Visionary Business School is to be unstoppable, knowing that there is a solution to every problem. Yes, synergy! I sense that the Divine is giving me a strong message that major transformation lies ahead for me this year. OK Jeannine, take a deep breath.

I look forward to the year ahead and will keep you all posted!

Sending so much love…

In Viriditas,

PS I was unstoppable as I reorganized my office last week.

Chanting the Wisdom Traditions, July 23 – July 27, 2018, Fox Institute

Dear Viriditas Community,

Ahhh jet lag…. I always marvel at how long it takes for me to adjust my biological clock when I return from Europe. I have been home for a week now and am still wanting to take a nap every day after lunch. Many of the things that I had hoped to get done this week have had to wait. Ahhh patience!

Here is a reading on patience from one of my favorite daily meditation books, Courage To Change:

“How often I still find myself impatient with the pace of life. But today, when things don’t happen according to my schedule, I can accept that there may be a reason, and I can learn to adjust to what is. I may be experiencing great change on the inside even though I see little evidence on the outside. I can keep in mind that waiting time doesn’t have to mean wasted time. (I love that line!) Even times of stillness have lessons to teach me.”

How to Bring Life to Your Chakras: 7 Healing Mantras

There is great change happening on the inside of the guidebook, I assure you! I am still in the midst of the editing process. And yes, this phase takes great patience! Some of the questions that David asked are requiring some discernment on my part before I can answer. With this project I am once again learning that times of stillness have lessons to teach me. I am also finding that much of the material in the guidebook is proving to be very useful as David and I prepare to teach Chanting Wisdom at the Fox Institute from July 23rd through July 27th.

The Fox Institute For Creation Spirituality

In fact, David and I spent this morning working on getting ready for our Chanting Wisdom class. One of the most exciting parts of this class is that David and I are creating movements to go along with all the chants we will be teaching. You will get to move like an elephant and do a hypnotizing circle dance to accompany a Sufi Zikr. Yes, the 5th Wisdom Tradition that David and I will be tapping into is the Islam! One of the chants we will be teaching is La Ilaha Illa Allah (There is no reality, but the One). Learn more about it in my blog post on Chanting the Wisdom Traditions – Islam: La Ilaha Illa Allah. 

Also FICS is expanding! The Fox Institute for Creation Spirituality introduces Extended Studies, a non-degree, continuing education program designed specifically for the Front Range community.

This is a whole other modality in which we can get deeper into what specifically may be holding you back in your life. One little shift could make all the difference in pivoting your soul’s energies so that they flow differently. I am aware that you don’t know what you are getting into, which is why I am giving you 100% satisfaction guaranteed or your money back. I want you to have the satisfaction of knowing that your session is really serving you at your deepest level. Contact me at 720 308 6782 or jeanninegoodeallen@gmail.com to set up an initial free fifteen minute phone consulation to see if a private session would be helpful for you

Speaking of feeling joyous! The Swiss soccer team beat Serbia 2-1 in their recent game, and YES, I was waving my Swiss flag and hooting and hollering…. Yo-do-lei-hi-hoo! Today they will be playing against Costa Rica….oh wow….such FUN! 

All right dear ones, may we be patient and trust the blessing that it is to be human….

So much love…
