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