Aubrey Degnan holds a
Ph.D. in humanistic psychology and is a spiritual teacher credentialed by both
Eastern and Western traditions. She is a minister performing wedding and
assisting in the process of death and dying. She teaches self-healing for cancer
clients and other chronic pain conditions. Her primary purpose is to help souls
open into expanded states of consciousness while simultaneously being grounded
in daily life.
In her book, "Luminous, the
Soul's Journey to Enlightenment" she shares personal experiences of
enlightenment, emptiness, bliss, third eye vision, medical intuitive seeing,
kundalini openings, as well as the struggles that accompany the spiritual path.
She shares the inspirational training and the hard lessons learned while
studying and often apprenticing under powerful international teachers: Tarthang
Tulku Rinpoche (Tibetan, Vajrayana tradition), Dr. Claudio Naranjo (Chilean,
Enneagram transmission), Dr. Zhi Gang Sha (Chinese, Body Space Medicine), Dr.
Fritz Perls (German, Founder of Gestalt Therapy), Dr. Joseph Busey (American,
Reichian therapist), Bob Hoffman and Dr. Ernie Pecci (American, Founders of
Fisher Hoffman Therapy). She is the Founder and Director of Healing Our Future,
CA 501c3 dedicated to education.
Currently Aubrey teaches
classes in "The Enneagram" in Sebastopol, sees couples and individuals, and has
a free weekly national teleclass "Listen With Your Heart". She offers
transmissions for the path to Enlightenment, guiding students into the
emptiness, the luminous, and bliss.
Her teachings present the
development of consciousness from ego into the explosion and power of infinite
light leading to connection with the Divine. Our innate human potential expands
as our neural pathways open to higher frequencies of energy, electricity and
light, into the greater journey of the soul...opening of the chakras, merging
with golden liquid light as it gently moves up the spine to greet the
magnificence of Divine Presence. In this progressive development, the
accompanying spiritual powers or abilities (“seductive siddhis”) are mere
indicators that one is on the path towards enlightenment. “I am but in
kindergarten,” says Dr. Degnan, describing the humility in her heart.
Marcelle Kardush, Ph.D.
integrates brain research, quantum physics, and timeless energy practices into
her work. Working with her provides you with the foundation which helps you
have a fuller, richer, experience of your life. She uses various modalities to
heal, to transform, and to create new possibilities. Her work centers on
transforming our beliefs concerning healing, disease and the structure of
reality within which we live. Dr. Kardush received her Ph.D. from the
University of California in Berkeley in 1968 and is a Professor Emeritus of
Psychology at San Francisco State University. She is currently working in the
San Luis Obispo area in California with Medical Doctors to bring about a true
integration of mind, body, spirit.
Tom McConnell, Ph.D.
has a wide academic background with degrees in
Religion, Sociology, Computer Science, and Paleontology. He has taught graduate
and undergraduate level courses at the University of Washington and South Dakota
School of Mines. Having traveled widely in diverse disciplines and cultures, he
uses these experience to help others better understand the human condition. His
first voyage into "the nothingness" occurred when he was 11 years old. His
first formal lessons in meditation were from a Laotian Buddhist monk across the
river from where Tom was stationed pursuing US intelligence interests. Tom is a
Master of Tai Chi and has taught emphasizing the internal aspects of this
discipline. For those who ask, he
helps them reach that inner condition of communion.
He also has earned a Black Belt in Judo. His real love is comparative religions
and the spiritual paths humans traverse to reach their spiritual goals. He
believes his greatest contribution for students is an introduction to Critical
Thinking and the perspective shift of "take one step back and look again". "We
take ourselves too seriously," he quips, adding" Base your spirituality on
knowledge, NOT belief; and never, NEVER, think you have it 'locked in'. When you
stop questioning, you stop growing."
