On Tuesday nights ITC is offering a study group called “The Explorers.”

May’s Topic is Spiritual Tools

Week One – Comprehending Spiritual Tools

Week Two – The Twelve Powers

Week Three – Meditation

Week Four – Gifts of Spirit

 

The group will be examining a new subject each month.  This is an interactive group in that those attending will be both teachers and students.  We started in January by studying the metaphysical meaning of the Bible.  In February and March we explored symbols and energy.  In April we will be examining body energies, which will include eating for your body type, sugar in the body, herbs that work for better health, and stopping aging.  In May the topic will be Spiritual tools and in June it will be Natal Charts. If you would like to join us, classes start at 7:00pm on Tuesday and are on a love offering basis.  Come and Explore.

Due to a conflict in the schedule of the facilitator for the Expansion Group, the last meeting on May 16th will be postponed to the second Monday of June (June 13). Since February we have been studying Spiritual Laws and how to apply them in our lives.  In the last class we’ll cover the last 3 chapters of the book “Twelve Spiritual Laws: The Truth that Will Transform Your Life”.  Join us at 7:15 even if you haven’t been able to do the reading.

The Third Thursday of each month we will hold a healing class with John from Peak Potential for a FREE Healing class and demonstration of an INSTANT Healing Technique called the Midas Touch Instant Healing Technique.  Whether you are just curious, or you have physical pain, phobias, trauma, or just want to get “unstuck” so that you can LIVE your highest potential, you will GAIN from thus class.
Interested in developing your own intuition? Considering regularly scheduled group class and Pendulum Workshop?  We are currently determining interest level for a monthly intuitive development group where you can learn about developing intuition, practice in a safe space, and begin accessing your own inner guidance.  If interested, please send an email to ITC using the Contact Us page, note that it us to thee attention of Bernette Sherman.  The group will likely begin in August or September.  A one time workshop on using the Pendulum for guidance is also being considered. If interested in this workshop please contact Bernette Sherman as well.


Throw In the Anchor (A Message from ITC)

An anchor consists of many parts – the ring, stock, shank, flukes, arms, and crown. Every part is necessary for it to give dependable service. As we move into new magnetic energy created by the sun, it will require each of us to be anchored in our knowingness and use every part of our knowingness. Just like the anchor, we need to give dependable service. That is what is needed at this time. This month will give everyone the opportunity to throw in the anchor, in some or many aspects of their lives. By staying anchored, growth will be possible.

September News and Announcements

A Message from ITC – From Norma Osman

Fall is that time of year when our thoughts turn to harvest and the abundance that Mother Earth provides for us. She gives us that very same abundance daily, in every breath and every step on her we take. We just have to take the time to become aware of the abundance around us. Life gives us the opportunity for more awareness, by the people we have in our lives. I was given that opportunity with my friendship with Betty, she always made the very most of every thing and every one in her life. Her understanding of abundance was excellent; she made the most of every thing in her life. I will miss her.

Betty’s Memorial Service is scheduled for 2:00pm on Sunday, September 11, 2016 at ITC.

August News and Updates

ITC News, Updates, and Events for August

A Message from ITC – From Norma Osman

ChallengesEvents and challenges
When life hands us unexpected events and new challenges, we have the opportunity to choose if we are the teacher or the student. In most cases being the teacher is the harder road to travel. The next time you have the chance to experience a new challenge or an event, take time to step back and ask yourself” what is life teaching?”. Am I the teacher or the student? This will smooth the path and let the energy flow. Remember a challenge is only energy unable to flow. Keep flowing, growing and learning.

July at Interfaith Truth Center

 A Message from ITC – From Norma Osman

July is here and it’s a time for vacations, grilling out, and family fun.  It’s also when we as a nation celebrate our independence. In addition, we have the opportunity to look at our own personal freedom. Freedom comes in many different forms. Why not  take this time to see how freedom is working in your life?  You can make the choice to let go of all the reasons why you can’t do whatever you want. Just let freedom ring!!!

July 9 at 7pmA Night of Sacred Sound will be performed by Michael Burke and Cathleen Malkus.
During this beautiful evening Cathleen’s vocals will be supported by Michael’s wide array of sound. They will incorporate Tibetan singing bowls, chimes, gongs, rain stick and Native American flutes. There may even be some spoken word or guided meditation.

This is a sonic massage on a cellular level that awakens the Divine within. These sounds can balance the brain by inducing a binaural atmosphere where inner peace is achieved and deep relaxation is felt throughout the body. By engaging sacred sound in simple, conscious ways you develop a powerful self-help tool to expand positive energy around you.

June News and Updates

A Message from ITC – From Norma Osman

A Message from ITC – From Norma’s Desk
Each of us is call to social involvement, to act toward the betterment of society. I think it’s an intrinsic behavior. Some people would say that being socially involved is one particular path and that other people have other paths. We all have different ways, different styles, different gifts, but whoever we are and whatever our calling is, all of us are called to act and to make a more just world. You can act, take a stand for something that you care about, and not know that you have any impact at all. But then you don’t know who is listening, and somebody, in fact has been listening, is being influenced, and somewhere down the line somebody changes his or her life as the results of what you do or say. That really does happen.

It truly was an honor for me to assist Lynn, Larry and Bernette as they took a stand for what they care about and believe in. They choose to act upon their calling, to reconnect with all of us and with the core of their being. Congratulations to all of you!!!!!

Unearthed (Inspirational Words and Thoughts)

Unearthed by Bernette:
http://bernette.net/unearthed/

It is my charge to go deep

To unearth the shallows of the soul

Where men’s hearts await uncovering

Hidden in the great unknown

 

With darkened eyes and shuttered ears

The senses do not judge the truth

For in the trappings of vanity

There is blindness to the illusion of life

 

Yet as the breaking of the ground

As the rain that washes down

As the sun that speeds the soil

The seed gives birth to life

 

From perfect roots, within, it hides

Yielding itself to nature’s law

Stretching ever to break through

Reaching always to the light


A Message from Norma’s Desk – May

Our theme for the Month of May is Karma, or cause and effect, which is a blending with the law of compensation.  That is, events are set up in previous times and are brought to you in an orderly sequence to be worked out.  And, in turn, set up fresh causes.  The important point to understand is that Karma is neither a reward or a punishment; it is a way of bringing you to just the right lesson at the right time, so you can take the next step in your life.  Karma is a subject that influences all of our lives.

Join us at 11am Sundays to have a better understanding of this complicated subject.


Breathwork and Chanting at ITC

Beginning Saturday May 7th and continuing through June, ITC will host Saturday Breathwork and Chanting.

The dates for BreathWork will be May 7 and 21, June 11 and 25 from 7-9pm.
We will also do “Community Kirtan” on Saturdays from 7-9pm on May 14 and 21, June 4 and 18. This will be Satsang hosted by Larry and Tracey. Satsang in Indian religions is being in the company of the truth or the good, by sitting together with a guru or a group of spiritual students. (Emphasis on group of spiritual students – not gurus – smile.)

About Breathwork:

“The Transformational Power of Rebirthing Breathwork” Immersions will be facilitated by

Ananda and Hampton. During each session we will discuss and process the spiritual and psychological aspects of our Being which either free us into our true nature or inhibit our natural bliss.  We will learn about keeping our energy bodies cleansed as taught directly to Ananda and Hampton from Leonard Orr the father and founder of ReBirthing BreathWork.  Some topics of  conversations will be Self Love, Relationships – which are the big inhibitors to our Divine Nature. We will also discuss  physical and emotional healing, living a high frequency lifestyle and healing addiction.  A safe, supportive, sacred space will be created for us to share our insights and feelings.  Love, and the love created by the group will be the healing force, as love brings up anything unlike itself for the purpose of healing.

Rebirthing Breathwork teaches that through working with the breath consciously that we are innocent, pure love and light and that our thoughts are creative!

BreathWork seminars like this have been known to take people light years ahead on their journey home to your innermost self. People who reconnect with their self through BreathWork find serenity, forgiveness, as well as unconditional love for themselves and all of creation.

Come learn this loving practice. Come and open your hearts. In this day and age we must create the sacred space of healing and listening for our souls.

Ananda is a Certified Rebirthing Breathwork Coach. Certified since 2006, she studies directly with Leonard Orr and organizes the One Year BreathWork Seminar in Atlanta for Leonard. Leonard Orr is the founder of ReBirthing BreathWork. Ananda has studied with Leonard for many years. She also received initiation from Babaji in India at his Ashram after completing her final studies with Sondra Ray, who is the Mother of Rebirthing BreathWork.  Ananda began her career as a licensed massage therapist and energy worker in 2000.  When she met her guru, the beloved Divine Mother Ammachi, in 1998 it was the moment she awakened to her own healing journey.  She is dedicated to holding sacred, safe and loving space for others to heal their minds, bodies and souls, and remember their Divinity.

 

Hampton’s spiritual awakening is always happening. Five years ago he took a spiritual leap of faith as his life metaphorically hit rock bottom. As he processed the death of his father his physical, mental and emotional well being declined. Suffering from low self esteem and poor eating habits his weight went to over 250 pounds. Not knowing how to communicate his feelings in a healthy way Hampton generally felt out of touch. His awakening started when he got motivated to change his physical health. He switched to a mostly vegetarian lifestyle focusing primarily on eating fresh, organic whole foods and eating at least 50% of it in its raw form. Several incredible teachers motivated Hampton to start cleansing with fresh, organic raw juice and move to an almost exclusive raw food lifestyle. This choice allowed him to cleanse his body deeply on a cellular level and helped remove of all the waste and toxins. As he began to love himself and his body Hampton’s mental and emotional health began to come back into balance. He then poured more and more love and care into all aspects of his life.His passion for health and wellness led him to work at an organic juice bar where he met his love and divine partner Ananda.

This divine relationship and connection with Ananda brought Hampton’s spiritual journey to the next level – being initiated into breathwork by Leonard Orr, who is the founder of breathwork. Together, Ananda and Hampton, have cultivated a divine relationship by being mirrors for each other. Through breath work they find themselves digging deep into their souls, thereby healing years of suppressed trauma and negative thought patterns. It is by divine plan, that they have been brought together to teach others this transformational technique of conscious breathing.
