  • The Strength to be Oneself

    Center For Inner Initiative

    How often do we find ourselves wavering in indecision, not sure of what it is we really want? What prevents us from taking a stand, regardless of the opinions of others? Finding an inner strength, to help us take that leap of faith in ourself is possible. It is possible by finding the Fool in ourself—a true inner confidence regardless of what might appear as foolishness to others. The Open Talk is free and runs for 45 minutes, followed by coffee and informal questions and discussion.

  • Transforming Our Experience

    Center For Inner Initiative

    Living means experiencing. . .but there are two levels to every experience: one is the sensory input of the moment, and the other is our definitions, the narratives that are made about the experience. Join us for Talk about how we might consciously transform our experiences into real experiments that are open to new meanings and understandings. The Open Talk is free and runs about 45 minutes. Informal conversation, questions and refreshments to follow. (This Talk had originally been scheduled for Febraury 13, but was moved to Monday Feb 17th because of incoming weather.)

  • The Power of our Emotions

    Center For Inner Initiative

    We do not realize the power our emotions have on determining our inner states. Like wild, untrained horses, they take off in directions we seem to have little choice in. However, with greater knowledge and understanding, it is possible to transform our unconscious emotional reactions to conscious ones. With increased consciousness comes freedom: a liberation from being “stuck” in our same old, mechanical emotional states. The Open Talk runs from 8:00 – 8:45 followed by coffee and informal questions and discussion.

  • Symbols Towards Self-Knowledge

    Center For Inner Initiative

    Tonight’s talk will discuss how an ancient symbol can act as mirror to guide us on the path towards self-knowledge and our higher aspirations. The Open Talk is free and runs about 45 minutes. Informal conversation, questions and refreshments to follow.

  • Seeing the Whole of My Self

    Center For Inner Initiative

    The movements of our thoughts, feelings and sensations constitute a large part of our life. But are we conscious of these three “motors?” By observing, acknowledging and re-defining these three motors in us—and as us—our perception of the world can change, and we begin to see why we think, feel and act as we do. Then the possibility of harmonizing these movements can begin to bring true rationality (“ratios”) in our lives: a true sense of inner and outer balance. The Open Talk is free and open to all who are interested and runs about 45 minutes. Information, conversation and questions are welcome with refreshments that follow.

  • Navigating the Influences that Surround Us

    Center For Inner Initiative

    We are constantly influenced and constantly influencing . . . but how aware are we of this fact? Can we see the influences that surround us that might run contrary to our possible inner growth, as well as influences from a higher source that could have a beneficial or transformative effect upon us? Join us for talk that will present some key ideas from the Western Initiatic teaching about distinguishing among the influences that we are subject to daily: those we might wish to try to insulate ourselves from, and those we might wish to consciously open to. The Open Talk is free and runs about 45 minutes. Informal conversation, questions and refreshments to follow.

  • Finding Our Inner Life

    Center For Inner Initiative

    If we can begin to awaken to our inner life, a door can open that allows our potential inner Self to be felt, seen and heard. An infinite world of possibilities lies within us, just waiting to be discovered. Please join us as we explore ways in which this inner world can be revealed in order that we might enjoy a more meaningful and purposeful life. The Open Talk runs for 45 minutes, followed by refreshments and informal discussion. The class is free and open to all who are interested.
