And here are some holiday events and programs you don’t want to miss:
1. Turning the Holidays into Holy Days through the Sacred Power of Prayer by mystical scholar and sacred activist Andrew Harvey. Harvey also offers courses on Rumi and the Divine Human.
In addition to the joy of giving and receiving, the “holy”-days are opportunities for transformation, healing and rebirth. We invite you to participate in this powerful, free tele-seminar Wednesday December 3rd with renowned scholar-mystic Andrew Harvey.
Andrew will share his insights into harnessing the sacred power of prayer for all faith traditions: how to weave practices of contemplation, adoration and silence into the holiday season.

2. The Rites of Passage. An extraordinary 12 week program of soul initiation into multidimensional consciousness and the experience of oneness. (Could make a great gift!)
The program was designed to assist the modern day initiate on the accelerated path of Self Realization. It is also being offered in a very generous and affordable way: When you sign up, you get access to the first two audio meditations, and all 12 videos and PDFs, for no charge, and with no credit card information required. In this way, you can experience the program for yourself and decide whether it is for you. The other 10 audio meditations are offered for $55.
The Rites deliver understanding and direct experience of some of the most crucial divine principles involved in our transition into integrated, multidimensional beings.

3. Tsunami: Images of Resilience. I was swimming with wild dolphins on December 26th 2004 in the Indian Ocean off Pert, Australia when the tsunami hit the west coast of Indonesia – nearly ten years ago. The dolphin behavior was unusual as they seemed to know something significant had happened, even though we didn’t. When we got back to our hotel and saw the news, we understood the behavior of the dolphins, and what a horrible tragedy had just occurred. By the end of the day more than 150,000 people were dead or missing and millions more were homeless in 11 countries, making it perhaps the most destructive tsunami in history.
How do you survive a tragedy such as this? How do you survive any sort of natural disaster, or manmade one for that matter? Extreme circumstances call for extraordinary resilience, but we all have it within us. Three months after the massive tsunami that devastated communities in 11 Asian countries, my friend and colleague Birgitte Rasine sent photographer Dan Root, who shoots for Nike, Adidas, and Manchester United, to the region to capture the stories of survival, strength and resilience. He brought back stunning images of men, women and children whose will to survive continues to amaze me to this day.
Today, they are publishing a hardcover book and a series of fine prints of these images, and we’re inviting you to be a part of this wonderful campaign on Indiegogo. Net proceeds from book and fine print sales will support disaster preparedness and trauma survival programs.

Have happy days giving thanks during this holiday season!
