How, in face of modern challenges, do we reconnect with our vitality, with our innate joy, passion and wonder and keep faith with the promise of living the unique and authentic lives we were born to live – lives in which we remember that “we,” as the poet June Ford once said, “are the ones we have been waiting for?”
 
These are not simple or easy questions nor are they easy times – periods of major transitions and the evolution of consciousness never are.  They reverberate from the clash between the departing values and practices of the old stories struggling and new and remarkable stories – those of greater hope and promise – that are being birthed.
 
As you will learn in this Wisdom Keeper Special from some of the leading voices of our time:
 
You are never too old or too young to live your dreams, inherit your authentic power, and meet the challenges and opportunities that life presents.

About the Conference:  Why This?  Why Now?

 

This is a time in which each of us is being called to answer some fundamental questions…

How, in the face of confusion and turmoil, do we live lives of genuine meaning and purpose?  

How do we honor the core values that issue our hearts and celebrate the unique gifts that each of us has come here to manifest?

How, at a time when some seem so clearly committed to dividing us, do we stay in touch with our humanity, our compassion and gratitude and with the truth that lies within us and is both our right and responsibility to share?
 
August 4th through 6th of this year on 80-acres of the beautiful, expansive, and magical Galisteo Basin in New Mexico, these are just a few of the questions some leading Wisdom Keepers of our time will help us answer more fully for ourselves. 

How, in face of modern challenges, do we reconnect with our vitality, with our innate joy, passion and wonder and keep faith with the promise of living the unique and authentic lives we were born to live – lives in which we remember that “we,” as the poet June Ford once said, “are the ones we have been waiting for?”

These are not simple or easy times – periods of major transitions and the evolution of consciousness are occurring never are.  They reverberate from the clash between the departing values and practices of the old stories struggling tenaciously to retain their grip on us and new and remarkable stories – those of greater hope and promise – that are being birthed.

You are never too old or too young to live your dreams, inherit the power and resources that are always available to you, and meet the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead of you.

Come celebrate your life, your gifts and your commitment to creating a more conscious, compassionate, empowering world.  

Come explore the insights, recommendations, strategies and practical wisdom of some of the leading wisdom keepers of our time.

Come share your heart, your enthusiasm and your hope as together we give voice and support to the birth of the news stories that will determine our future here in this land of ancient wonders and deep and sacred traditions.

Come explore the insights, strategies and practical wisdom of some of the leading wisdom keepers of our time and learn exquisite and priceless AgeNation life strategies to support and complement Qigong.

Yes, join the global leaders on conscious living, be inspired and inspire those around you.

Renew, refresh, and reconnect with the spirit, the hope, and the promise we will all need as we make our way forward on this journey of evolution and consciousness.
 

What If Your Whole LIFE Could Be A Celebration Of Consciousness, Wellness, Wisdom, and Community? 

We have planned three days of inspiration, wisdom and information, of celebration and genuine community.  Three days of music and joy, of connection and of the practice and integration of valuable life enhancing strategies that can help each of us go more deeply into this truth and wisdom that lies in our hearts.

Supporting you to live a life of conscious aging, alleviating suffering to focus on your true purpose, from this day forward, is our highest goal for this event, emphasing the insights, wisdoms, and guidance to:

Be truly present and share your heart, your enthusiasm and your hope as we give voice and support to the birth of the new stories that will determine your individual – and our collective future – at The Center for Wisdom Healing Qigong, a land of ancient wonders and deep and sacred traditions.

Imagine living every moment yet to come in your life with conscious life force, transformation and vitality.

Heal what is not resolved from the past (often in the subconscious or unconscious mind).

Rekindle your creativity at every age. Live fully every day with happiness and joy.

No matter what your age or challenges,
your genius and viewpoint is essential!
