Heart Teachings with Ray Reitze
TEACHINGS FROM THE HEART with RAY REITZE "OLD TURTLE" Join Ray for a spiritual based teaching. Sharpen your ability to see the world and to hear your heart so that these skills may guide you through life. We use meditations to quiet the mind and awaken awareness. We spend time investigating questions such as what the roots of our emotions are, how we can act from love instead of fear, and what stops us from living our dreams. Through meditation, observation, discussion and Ray’s humorous stories we come to understand the source of our troubles and why people act as they do. This understanding and awareness helps us to strip away judgment and fear so we may follow our hearts with confidence and peace. Throughout this session we draw upon the wisdom and stillness of nature. Time is spent in quiet contemplation as well as in active pursuits. You will leave this experience with a new found stillness of mind, appreciation for the earth, and clarity of purpose. You are invited to stay for lunch, please bring a potluck dish to share! Donations are accepted in any amount, no one will be turned away for lack of funds. http://teachinglodge.com
