Overcoming Trauma with Itzhak Beery

An amazing shamanic workshop led by Mr. Itzhak Beery for the weekend of April 26 to 28 in one of the most relaxing and beautiful Tuscany resorts.

"Overcoming trauma"

We cross the time-space dimension to contact trauma, and through the shamanic method we dissolve the emotional tie that holds us from being free and happy. Our soul is called back inside us, and our energy can implement to its peak!

Mr. Itzhak Beery is a Hebrew Shaman who stays in New York and twice a year goes living with the most outstanding and powerful Native Shamans in Ecuador, learning healing techniques dating back thousands years. This Tradition is being handed to us to remind us the power of the natural forces and the greatness of the mind to resolve body-mind problems.

Itzhak is Professor of Shamanism at the New York University.  He is followed by New York Times and many other top Media. He performs in many educational  programs that are being forecast all over America. He is the Author of 3 bestsellers.

The Last Days of Leonardo da Vinci : Looking Again at Amboise

The Last Days of Leonardo da Vinci : Looking Again at Amboise

Talk given by Ross King, author of Brunelleschi's Dome.

Was Leonardo da Vinci ill and unproductive during the final three years of his life? Or was he at work, almost till the end, on what would have been his greatest achievement?

Leonardo spent the last two and a half years of his life living in Amboise, adorning the court of the brilliant young French monarch, Francis I. Conventional wisdom has it that Leonardo was ill and unproductive during these years, at the end of his creative tether and leading the life of a disappointed recluse. This lecture, based on recent research and discoveries, will overturn that myth by showing that Leonardo was active and inventive until almost the very end, hard at work on what, had he lived, may have been his greatest achievement.

 

This talk is free for CSF & British Institute Members, CSF patrons.

€10 for non-members.

How to Use A Pendulum with Ali Bogner & Marina Calamai

How to Use A Pendulum with Ali Bogner & Marina Calamai

One of the most commonly used tools for divination and dowsing is a pendulum. Scientists and sages have used it for centuries! Come learn their secrets with Ali Bogner & Marina Calamai!.

This talk is free for Cultural Salon Members & Patrons.

Pendulums have been used for centuries all over the world by both governments and individuals. In fact, it is known that users of the pendulum include the Vatican, the ancient Egyptians/Romans/Chinese, Leonardo da Vinci, the English during WWII and many others. Albert Einstein even stated, “I know very well that many scientists consider dowsing as they do astrology, as a type of ancient superstition.  According to my conviction this is, however unjustified.  The dowsing rod is a simple instrument which shows the reaction of the human nervous system to certain factors which are unknown to us at this time”

A pendulum works by tapping into your intuition and sixth sense. As the pendulum moves, you gain answers in response to questions – it is best suited to use to answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions. Many feel it works through activating certain nerve impulses as it sends messages from the subconscious to the conscious mind. Dowsing assumes that EVERYTHING without exception, constantly radiates energy. The pendulum merely allows you to physically see what the intuition already knows. As an extension of the intuition, the pendulum can give you information from the same two sources as the intuition: from your own subconscious mind; and from your higher guidance, spirit, or guardian angel.

While the art of using a pendulum is something that anyone can learn and master, it is important to learn the proper method of asking questions and using the pendulum.

 

Pendulum dowsing can be used in a variety of different ways, such as:

·       Healing purposes and identifying allergies.

·       To help make all types of decisions

·       To help find various earth energies affecting a home (dowsing rods are often used for this too, which work in a similar way to a pendulum).

·       As a Feng Shui aid to help with placement in the home.

·       As a vehicle to self awareness.
