Lotus BlossomThe GREAT AWAKENING:  The Illumination of Consciousness
  Let us all come into remembrance of the Beauty and Purpose of our existence.
The more we are able to touch into the vastness, richness, and Beauty of Creation, the more we are able to feel the deserving nature of our Presence here.  The more we realize this, the more we are able to connect with the very essence and nature of Life, with the breadth of the Cosmos, and through this, the nature, the identity and the purpose of our Being.

These programs are constantly evolving due to nature of Celestial Guidance and Allies, and the Changing Times.  There is no pre-requisite to attend any of the "Great Awakening" series of programs.

Preparing the Body, Mind, and Soul, for the Great Transformation in Human Consciousness;
Living, Learning, and Building Harmonious Relationships
 With All Aspects of Creation
The Doorway to the Ancestors
In this practice, we will be exploring and working with specific passageways of healing, especially those related to ancestral pathways which often hold key encodings and beliefs which may limit our realities and perceptions, of ourselves, and the world around us, and how we interact with them.
We carry many 'wrappings', 'sheaths,' or veils of limiting beliefs and perceptions which are, often, handed down to us generationally, and which we may, also, carry with us through lifetimes without realization or resolution.  Many of us, also, carry, trauma and abuse from this and other lives which have not been fully healed or resolved, and which, both, dampen our emotional and mental fields, and limit our abilities to stretch into the greater truth of who we are as spiritual beings.
These can be encoded at a physiological level, within our genes, or DNA encodings.  It is here, when we enter the subtle and (subatomic) level of our being, entering the realms and spheres of light, that we can both dissolve these ancient encodings, and re-orient our awareness and existence around the original instructions of our most ancient lineages, which are pure, light, and filled with the essence and heart of Creation.
We have forgotten.

Here, we discover the true threads of our ancestral wisdom, our deepest origins, and carry these forward into the present and future times to meet our Destiny, our Divinity, and our True Nature and Being.
We, also, meet our true or pure ancestral heritage, as it was originally intended.
The true nature, or origin, of the word 'healing,' itself, arises from, first 'wholeness,', and then 'holiness.'
As we purify our ancestral streams and encodings, we liberate our potential, and enter more readily the realms of birthing our true nature, and Meeting our Divinity.
We are living in these times of profound and prophecied transformation as a human and spiritual species.  It is known by many names.  One of them, of the Western mystical traditions, is, 'the Apocalypse.'  This, literally, means, The Lifting of the Veils, as well as, the drawing out of the potential that resides, within the stone (like the sculptor drawing the perfection out of stone in his/her art.)
We are in that time, and the Universal flows of energy and consciousness are now fully supporting those who wish to do the work.  The classic 'Great Work,' known among cultures as that which we are here to do; to recognize, then realize the true nature of our soul, our spirit, our essence, our True Being. 
It is time.
Zacciah will masterfully escort us through the Veils of illusion, and suffering, which no longer need to plague us, if we, simply, and authentically come forward to witness the healing and wholeness, the truth and the Holiness, or Divine nature, of our Being.
In a sacred way, for the benefit of all, he brings forward these healings and teachings.
Please, join us.

See our last two newsletters with more information on this work:
This practice will include a SoulStar, or "Ba", Initiation on Sunday, as well as a world sound healing service.

Some additional points of our Focus in this work:
Who are the ancestors?   Spiritual and biological images
-Guardians of the Earth   -Wisdom keepers
Wisdom keepers of the cosmos
Individual   -  One who precedes our history
What is their meaning in our life
How have they affected us?
How do they intertwine in our intertwine & in our spiritual background
Generations>  Genetic Imprints
'Sins of your fathers'  ~  belief codes, energetic miasms, DNA imprints
Previous incarnations, karmic associations
emotional trauma - storing, imprinting, carrying from past lineages
Family-genetic roots-society- culture- race- species

How to resolve
Pathways to Resolution

Archetypal- energies- medicines- allies- animal- elemental- angelic- starseed- source
Family- genetic- social- cultural
How they have affected you
How they have disempowered you
How they have held you back
What have they given you

What is precious in your deeper inheritance
What is origin of genetic seed
Where is your seed of potential, seed of perfection http://www.thecenteroflight.net/DoorwayToAncestors.html
What is essence of being
    Original Instructions
We hold these key codes of essence and being within us.
Where is it carried
How can it better be cultivated

It is beneficial to understand that these, like all life, function, fundamentally, at a vibrational level.
In this work, we are fundamentally 
Co-Creating the Template of Heaven on Earth
 Re-invigorating the original matrix, or instructions for harmony with all life.

For additional information on the background of this entire series of programs  see The Great Awakening,
as well as our many Articles.
The foundation of these programs is constantly updated from information arising from the Elders and Wisdom Keepers guiding this work.  Though constantly evolving, practical exercises to enter awakened lucid states of consciousness (what is also refered to as enlightenment, or ascended states of consciousness,) will be offered, utilizing Sacred Sound, which will enhance the participants experience significantly.
These are being offered, also, at a time in deep correspondence to the Maya Calendar days of great Transformation, Awakening, and Renewal.
We are in a time when a new window of opportunity is opening for human consciousness to more readily access understanding and experience of the Unity of Creation.  This is fundamental understanding to this entire period of time, and will be specific to our practice. 
Join with us, in these sacred programs, humbly offered.
It is Time.

We wish you, all, many blessings in the Journey

  This program is facilitated by, Zacciah Blackburn, PhD, a highly skilled intuiive teacher and guide in sound healing and esoteric awareness practices for true awakening of consciousness.  He has worked in the field for over 3 decades, offers a 3 year program in therapeutic sound healing practices, and teaches internationally a variety of esoteric trainings in consciousness and earth healing practices.
He is Director of Education for the International Sound Healing Network.

Zacciah's work has long focused on the emerging transformation of human consciousness.

This work, 
The Great Awakening, continues a series of programs explicit to this new era of awakening which humanity is entering, with explicit steps to assist in this personal and collective awakening, long prophecied by many cultures of the world.

The Great Awakening
will offer keen insight into the nature of this incredible threshold of awakening, upon which humanity stands poised, as well as offer each participant a vehicle which can transport us into other worlds of understanding, experience, and self knowledge.  These experiences are especially heightened via the art of Sacred Sound Transmissions, through which Zacciah brings the sounds and voices of Holy Beings from other realms of consciousness, into our present environ,  which can heighten our sense of Living Reality.  The vast majority of participants find these experiences extraordinarily enriching, life altering, and deeply transformative.  At the same time, participants are left with practical exercises to carry into their every day lives.
