Finding the Gift in Shift 2011: Transcendence

By Corinne L. Casazza


The Fifth Annual Finding the Gift in Shift Conference is being held at the Poco Diablo Resort and Spa in Sedona, AZ, January 21-23. This year’s theme is Transcendence: going beyond our boundaries, limiting beliefs, and unconscious thoughts to find the peace that is always within us.

During these turbulent times, it may feel as if the entire sands of our existence are shifting beneath our feet. It’s not always comfortable, but it is manageable. The peace that we truly are is always available to us no matter what external circumstances look like.

Stellar Productions has put together a line-up of outstanding metaphysical speakers, teachers, authors and film makers to give you the techniques to transcend transitions and challenges, and navigate new paradigms and opportunities. We would like to extend great gratitude to our generous sponsors, Stone Nation, the Sanctuary at Sedona and Awareness Magazine.

This year’s opening address will be given by Sarah McLean. A recognized expert in meditation and stress relief, she will discuss transcendence through meditation: exploring the space within. Transcendence leads to an expanded awareness in every aspect of life. Sarah will teach you a profound, timeless practice that helps you transcend the experience of time, space and local reality.

You’ll begin to uncover the ways you depend on transitory experiences to define your identity. Discover how to shift your reference point through transcendence to actualize the qualities of the unchanging aspect that underlies creation and your soul or self. Learn ways to infuse these qualities of bliss, creativity, and wholeness into your everyday experience.

Gregg Braden’s Friday evening keynote will address Deep Truth: Igniting the Memory of Our Origin, History, Destiny and Fate. He’ll reveal four new discoveries that forever change the way we’ve thought of ourselves in the past. It’s these truths that must be considered as we address the great crises of our time.

Saturday, the dynamic Cynthia James is our keynote. Rev. James is admired and respected for her passion to empower and transform people’s lives. Her life-changing ministries at Mile High Church in Denver have touched and transformed her congregation and have gathered diverse peoples to make the world a better place on a global scale.

A survivor of childhood abuse, Rev. James has developed effective tools that have assisted thousands of individuals, families and couples in transcending and healing from the wounds of abuse and trauma in their lives. She will speak about what will set you free in this time of accelerated living.

Dr. Rocco Errico is the Sunday keynote speaker. He is an ordained minister, author, spiritual counselor, international lecturer and one of the nation’s leading Biblical scholars.

Dr. Errico is proficient in Aramaic and Hebrew exegesis, helping thousands of readers and seminar participants understand how the Semitic context of culture, language, idioms, symbolism, mystical style, psychology, and literary amplification — the Seven Keys that unlock the Bible — are essential to understanding this ancient spiritual document.

Dean Taraborelli is founder of The Sanctuary at Sedona, an alternative healing retreat center focusing on addiction and other self-defeating behaviors. Dean is dedicated to offering individuals a unique environment to heal and make sustainable life shifts to reconnect with their authentic selves and soul’s journey.

Sparked by his second near-death experience, Dean left a lucrative career to study the energy medicine practices and wisdom teachings of the indigenous Americans. He was initiated into the Native American shamanic lineage of the Peruvian Q’ero in 2003, stepping into his true vocation as a healer, wisdom teacher and intuitive. Dean is discussing how to integrate, activate and co-create with new energies coming in.

Other life-changing speakers include: Rod Bearcloud, Sunny Dawn Johnston, Paul Perry, Dr. Raymond Moody, Bert Janssen, Ronna Prince, Dr. Donald Backstrom, Dr. Patricia Cota-Robles, David Sereda, Jane Elizabeth Smith, Randall Libero, Dr. Chet Snow and Tom Zender.

A number of pre-conference workshops will be conducted on Friday, January 21. New York Times best-selling author Paul Perry and Corinne Casazza, author of Walk Like an Egyptian, will teach Making Mind Matter: Automatic Writing. Sunny Dawn Johnston will lead Healing the Heart and Moving Forward.

Bert Janssen and Heather Clewett-Jachowski are offering Meet the Circle Maker: Unlocking the Deeply Buried Treasure Within You. Michael James presents The Irony of Forgiveness, and Sharon Hooper brings Vision Mapping Strategies that Make Your Heart Sing.

This year’s conference will include Transcendent Cinema: the premieres of two new metaphysical films. Sacred Journey of the Heart premieres Thursday, January 20. Producers Ronna Prince and Dr. Donald Backstrom will be on hand to answer questions.

Join New York Times best-selling author turned film maker Paul Perry and Dr. Raymond Moody, the father of near-death experiences (NDEs), on Saturday night from 8-10 for the premiere of Afterlife. This new film includes the NDEs of both men and poignant, moving interviews with those who have seen the other side. Paul and Dr. Raymond will speak and answer your questions.
