Presentation of the First Section of the Children's Cloth of Many Colors, "Love of Nature"

St. James Episcopal Church


We were pleased to hear from our young quilters at St. James Episcopal Church about their experience in designing and completing the first section of our new Childrens' Cloth. Our new theme is Love of Nature, and focuses on the key issue of climate change.  Based on our history with this project, we believe that it can make a real difference to the protection of our environment. Each section will illustrate the children's love of nature and their desire to protect it, and this section does just that! Here's a short video that depicts Nature's beauty, from the seas to the sun's brilliant rays...and the smiles on the faces of the children who made it!

First Degree Reiki Course from 10am - 5pm


​Taking this First Degree Reiki class may be one of the most important decisions that you ever make for yourself. Reiki has proven to help reduce stress, provide an inner peace, and help you retain a sense of calmness in your every day life. You'll receive four attunements that will enhance the connection between you and the "Universal Life Energy" and a fifth attunement that helps to open your heart. You'll practice using this connection on yourself and on others, and you will learn to discern when the Reiki energy is activated (when the person needs it in some way).  (Cost: $150)

Synergy Circle - Lifting Up the Soul of America

05 November 2016

Airlie Conservation House 


This Special Event was a "synergy circle," which created an opportunity for a large group of spiritual leaders to gather together for one day in our nation's capital - the very heart center of our country. Our dedicated group of respected authors, politicians, activists, and spiritual leaders explored how to raise the frequency of a divided America, planting the seeds in it collective consciousness of the deep healing that is so needed. The outcome of our exploration is a commitment to begin to co-create a template for a future that is not based on our current trajectory, but on the mission of the nation grounded in its founding principles and expressing its limitless potential for evolutionary leadership.

Developing Your Christ Consciousness - a special small group 3-month exploration with Gerry Eitner


"Everything I do you will do, and even more” --- these were the words of Jesus to his followers. If we believe these words, then we want to live into that promise. Would you like to explore this possibility for you? We are pleased to offer a special three-month experience designed specifically to help you explore this intention through the power of virtual small groups (typically sized to six people). As your group facilitator, Gerry will guide you with specific questions, which you will answer by exploring Nature in special ways. These questions are designed to evoke deeper understandings, connection, healing, and Self-expression for you. As you share your experiences, you’ll receive kind and thoughtful feedback from the group members. (This is a great model for larger societal interactions!)


As you may know, Gerry has been a spiritual coach for 35 years, and focusing on helping others develop their Christ consciousness for the past few years. In addition to the guided group discussions, you will also receive an hour each month of personal consultation with her, by phone or Skype.  Each time a session like this one is held, there are positive and introspective conversations that open up deeper levels of consciousness. We hope you’ll consider joining us.


Please contact Gerry7253@gmail.com if you’re interested in the class, along with your group choice (we can match you up or you’re welcome to form your own; group size is best at six people.)  (Cost: $300)

Unified Series - Study for a year with Gerry Eitner

Invest in yourself with this unique opportunity to study the Unified Series and work personally with Gerry each month.


This is a One on One study in moving from duality consciousness into one of Unity.  The world we've known has been one of duality.  We're now seeing extreme examples of this duality in the us versus them/victim-blame games as this system reaches its end time. Why is this happening?  A new level, or dimension, is ready to be born now  - one of Unity.  How will you play your own part in this new birth?   It's about expressing your own God Presence. These monthly perspectives and exercises will help you to relate to and express your own God nature - one of Unity and Love. Along with the monthly lessons, you'll receive an hour of individual time with Gerry -  either in person if you're in this geographical area, or on the phone/skype if there's a distance.  In each case, we'll focus on your personal life, your challenges and your breakthroughs as you relate to this material. Your commitment will last for one year.  (Cost: $100/month)
