A New Era of Raising Awareness


Connections with Meaning & Purpose in a Digital World
An Exploration of Options for Healthy Living
By S.A. Wiatrolik, New Living Expo Associate Producer
Do you frequently find yourself with an impulse to withdraw from connections and conversations you once enjoyed? Do people whose actions or views differ from yours trigger indignation or even anger? What can our divisiveness teach us about ourselves?

Our reluctance to face our differences can hold us back from deep connectivity in our community and our personal relationships. Here is a method to begin to cultivate meaningful connections.

We know tech-free time is a health reboot. Once you've unplugged for a day, or even an hour, and re-discovered the 'white space' in your mind, it's time to evaluate and prioritize.

Eckhart Tolle says "You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself.”

How do you apply this to your every-day-is-busy life? The great thinkers are right; putting our precious energies into trying to change or improve those around us is futile. If this approach is what neuroscientists call your ‘default mode’ of thinking, it's time to let go. Pay attention to your inner dialogue while meditating, driving or drifting off to sleep, as a few examples. Cultivate trust in your most fundamental identity by paying attention to the language of that inner dialogue. Are you trying too hard to fulfill the roles that society, cultural standards and those closest to you are imposing on you? Transforming your thoughts, speech and actions takes work! Once you find enough TRUST to be in full agreement of the idea of your universal connectedness, and YES, with every person, flowering plant, flying bird and so on, it is possible to catch glimpses of this connectedness. With practice, you can ultimately open your heart - like a lotus flower - to deep wisdom, joy and love. 

Awakening from the Illusion of Separateness: Spiritual Truths to Help Heal a Divided World, is a free online event happening on September 20th, hosted by Deepak Chopra and Eckhart Tolle.

New Living Expo 2018 ~ Presentation by Andrew Collins 
Andrew Collins ~ Special Event Speaker
New Living Expo 2018 April 27th - 29th

Andrew Collins is a science and history writer, and the author of over fifteen books that challenge the way we think about the past. Among those books are From the Ashes of Angels (1996), The Cygnus Mystery (2006), Gobekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods (2014). In 2008 Andrew and Egyptological researcher Nigel Skinner Simpson discovered a previously unrecorded cave system beneath the shadow of the Great Pyramid at Giza. It is a story that has brought Andrew acclaim across the world, the caverns even becoming known as Collins' Cave. The story is told in his book Beneath the Pyramids (2009). His new book, The Cygnus Key: The Denisovan Legacy, Gobekli Tepe and the Birth of Egypt, will be published by Inner Traditions in May of 2018. 

Built at the end of the last ice age around 9600 BCE, Göbekli Tepe, located in southeast Turkey, was designed to align with the constellation of the celestial swan, Cygnus. In his new book, The Cygnus Key, Collins traces the origins of Göbekli Tepe and explains how the Giza pyramids are aligned with the constellation of Cygnus and show evidence of enhanced sound-acoustic technology.

We know you will be enthralled by Andrew Collins as one of our Special Event speakers appearing at New Living Expo during April 27-29 of 2018. Stay tuned to this newsletter for further updates and exciting announcements!

The Passing of Louise Hay
Louise HayLouise Hay, who died at age 90 on August 30, was one of the founders of the modern self-help movement, and claimed to have cured herself of cancer in the 1970s through the power of positive thinking. In 1976, Hay wrote her first book, Heal Your Body, which began as a small pamphlet containing a list of different bodily ailments and their probable metaphysical causes (inspired by works from John Frederick DeMartini). This pamphlet was later extended into her book, You Can Heal Your Life, which became a New York Times best-seller and affectionately known as 'the little blue book'. Hay House, her publishing company, is an international giant of publishing. Her daily affirmations, such as "All that I seek is already within me" are legendary.
