Few people actually understand what it takes to manifest quality relationships under adverse conditions. This is why we have so many relationship breakdowns that end up in divorce. Instead of collapsing and losing our focus, what if we had the ability to confidently address our needs and make the relationships we are in flourish. Growth, Autonomy, Intimacy and Co-Creativity are the core skills that empower us to make any relationship work. Until we know who we are on these levels, our ability to make promises to partners is always questionable. This course is particularly for romantic partners, business partners and family members who want to make relationships work, but are not sure they can under adverse circumstances, like stress, infidelity, lack of communication, inability to make decisions together, etc. It provides conflict resolution skills that are not easily manifested in our current relationships.
Every creative modality is either a strength or a weakness, depending on how we deal with each. Sensations, Feelings, Emotions and Thoughts are the foundation for our Defensive frameworks and experiential distortions. The more we get off-balance in any, the more easily we become blindsided and conned. The more we reduce any imbalances by engaging and developing facility in each area, the easier it is to integrate our experiences and be less reactive with others.
Recognize the hidden beliefs and assumptions that get us in trouble when others do not understand us. This course introduces us to all the creative options available so we can start placing individuals in effective frameworks for real connection. Explore the differences between our parental imprinting and who we really are. This class clarifies our Creative Nature so we can be more authentic in our interactions with others.
When we deny our ability to be present or accept the repression of others, it minimizes our experience. We end up denying our ability to affirm what we want. These imbalances, where we over or underdo our Sensations, Feelings, Emotions and Thought limit our experience of Pleasure, Power and Passion. The more we identify with these limitations, the more unconsciously we need others to protect our image though contraction, control and caretaking. Fitting in means more to us than the possibility of enhanced creativity, accepting our nature and freedom of choice. This is the nature of conditioning. The source of our discomfort of not being accepted as children, can become an opportunity to rebalance ourselves. This is the purpose and value of this class. We want to remake our experiential frameworks and create new neural pathways. We fall into patterns of restriction when we attempt to reinforce our value to others at the cost of our Self-expression. A sign of these imbalances is the degree to which we act out our repressions because of built up resentments and anger. These dissonances and disconnections amplify our defensiveness. We see indications of this by how much we under or over do the four modalities. It is our out-of-balance expressions that create our sense of isolation, judgment and misunderstanding with others. When we are aligned with ourselves, Thoughts, Emotions, Feelings and Sensations integrate as one and help us express ourselves easily and accurately. Intuition is also discussed and explored as a result of consciously bringing together our Feelings and Emotions. What would it be like to step into the possibility of expressing our Self and being honored for doing so? This course will help you assess where you hold yourself back or act out, to push others away. It reveals how we sabotage ourselves by denying our Beauty, Truth and Goodness. It clarifies those opportunities where we can step out and be accepted. It teaches us about our self-imposed constraints where, because we are not present in a creative way, we limit our experience of Pleasure, Power and Passion. To fully experience Pleasure, we need to be present physically and integrate our Sensations and Feelings. To empower our inner and outer understanding, we need to integrate our Emotions and Thoughts. Without Pleasure and Power, Enthusiasm and Passion (Feelings and Emotions) are greatly diminished. Who would we be if we could speak our Truth and not be reactive or self-deprecating? What if there was no need to apologize for, limit or deny our Creative greatness? What if we did not need to define ourselves based on what others expect? Can you imagine giving yourself permission to explore the full range of Pleasure, Power and Passion? The benefit of exploring this possibility is that we can discover what holds us back and then heal ourselves of self-imposed limitations. For many of us, this opens a pathway to greater Self love and full expression. What if we could engage and heal the inner tensions that keep us from deepening our well-being and from expressing our Truth? We need to establish a sense of balance within which reflects our natural and uncompromised boundaries. This inner integration of outer reactions allows us to accept that our evolving Creative Nature is in our own hands. We then learn that no one can impose their version of the truth upon us. Our ability to interpret our experience in a way that empowers us is the first step in reclaiming our Truth. We will also discover the value of having a self-created vocabulary for talking about our inner experiences. This allows us to open up, and to be more flexible and fluid in different ways of being with our experiences. The more we expose ourselves to the patterns of entanglement, which limit our understanding of Self, the more compassionate we will be with others and ourselves. We will discover that our patterns of protection do not succeed in protecting us, but merely reinforce how denying ourselves only pushes others away. We invite you to explore and unpack the limiting patterns of the past so you can experience a rebirth in your ability to be present in the world. This is how we embrace our greatness!
We will cover the main Compatibility Factors spoken about in Creative Uniqueness. The goal of this course is to take your personal understanding and apply it to others so you know what to do with everyone you meet. Learn to quickly identify those who would be the best for you to maximize the number of people who “get” and support you for who you are. We will focus on the 7 Creative Archetypes and Communication Process, Decision Making Style, Pacing, WorldView, Defense Style and Façade. There are three primary applications for this: Identifying the best friends, business partners and romantic relationships. Imagine being able to identify the people whom would most resonate with you in your community and predict how they might respond because they are similar to you. Each class presents a tutorial on how we recognize a particular style, then provides many examples for attendees to learn how to see these patterns. This course in an introduction to the Inner Seeing series where we teach potential Coaches and Facilitators how to best perform a creative assessment. For those who want to be selective, this course will also be offered on a per-night basis, by registering in advance.
Experiencing higher Attractions is not something many of us are comfortable about. While we may have a slight appreciation of Aliveness, Wisdom and Awareness, we do not recognize its true magnificence because we were not introduced to these creative options. This course makes real how powerful creative Attractions can be in moving us forward in our lives. It helps us choose our lessons rather than being at their effect. Find out what you have been missing!
Humans are energetic beings. The more conscious we become, the more we discover how to use Life, Light and Love energy to facilitate our connections. We possess sensory tools, which allow us to not only organize our own experience, but to organize how the experience of others could impact us. Most individuals are unaware of these tools. However, with these tools, we can identify the source of upsets, understand the limits of our partners and create new opportunities to work together as partners. Common Neutral Ground is the unifying framework for Higher Alignment and the implementation of ‘right’ relationships. While many therapists have developed version of the Common Neutral Ground to do their work, Higher Alignment developed this model for conscious individuals to quickly be able to manage many different types of relationships. It is likely that this approach will increasingly be adopted in the Aquarian Age because it is based on equal, peer-to-peer connections. As consciousness becomes more prevalent in organizations, this energetic technology will be adopted to remediate conflicts and promote greater harmony and coordinate individuals with a singular purpose. It is also a process that promotes greater self-reflection as we learn to create a Common Neutral Ground.
What we are seeking are partners we can trust, unify with and operate in a process of conscious communion. By becoming the kind of partner we want, others interested in conscious relationships, will gravitate to us. The most revolutionary thing about Common Neutral Ground is that it allows us to establish boundaries between our experience and others’ so we always know where we stand. The Common Neutral Ground (CNG) allows us to have a personal experience while simultaneously have a shared, transpersonal experience with others. Whenever we need to personally affirm ourselves, we can do so and whenever we need to affirm the relationship, we can do that as well. This means we never need to compromise ourselves to be in a relationship.
Having a Common Neutral Ground facilitates us to organize our experiences so we can focus on what we want to focus on, rather than falsely believing we need to accept others’ experience in its most difficult forms. We do not have to be at the effect of others to understand them, nor, do we need to be hurt just because they are hurting. What Common Neutral Ground does is to allow us to see and hold a larger perspective, so we are not consumed by the experience. We can separate or combine experiences at choice by organizing them energetically in the Common Neutral Ground. The effect of this is to give us more ways to configure the optimum experience to learn the lessons we want to learn. As a result, we can be more responsive to opportunities, rather than fall into reactive, painful patterns.
Most individuals vacillate between disengagement and enmeshment because they cannot find a way to balance their needs with the needs of others. More importantly, we do not know how to shift out of defensive patterns, where we believe we have to impose our perspective on others. Instead, we learn how to hold space for our partners to creatively connect with us so that new possibilities between us can emerge. It is these creative possibilities that make relationships worth having. Otherwise, the relationship is mainly a ‘needs fulfillment program’.
When we learn how to create and hold steady our Common Neutral Ground in all situations, it empowers us to operate from our Wisdom and Truth. We do this through practicing Stillness, Solitude and Silence within ourselves so our conditioning and Defenses do not drive us to act out our fears and desires. We know how to be of service to others, which greatly facilitates our ability to do our Authentic Life Expression. Most importantly, we can recreate the experiences of others, allowing us to unify with them, as we would like. Toward the end of the class, we will be focusing on the three tools of a great Common Neutral Ground, which are: Spacious Presence, Pregnant Duration and Skillful Means.
Spacious Presence is the capacity for us to create space for our selves and others so our experiences are not unconsciously merged and lost. We learn how Thought follows Energy and, how, by creating an open field, new experiences can be generated. Pregnant Duration is the capacity to use concentration skills to alter the experience of Time so that we can create solutions on demand. When we own our purpose, it allows us to draw to us exactly what we need to make a difference in our personal world and the world around us. Skillful Means is the primary way we synthetically integrate our experience so we are naturally guided to do the next best thing.

Come for a discussion about the Compatibility Factors of Hillary and Donald, their families, and running mates. Find out why certain demographics or constituencies support each of these candidates.
Find out why certain demographics or constituencies support each of these candidates. We promise to be objective and stick to the assessments rather than making this a personal or political discussion.Continuing the election update tradition in Higher Alignment, we will answer people's questions about what they like and don't like about all the candidates. We will also talk about their families and running mates and why these individuals were placed on the ticket. To put this in context, we will review how they differ from previous candidates and what will the strengths and weaknesses as they move into the final campaign process.
