Nichola Johnson

Wednesday January 11
12:00pm – 1:30pm EST

Accessing Conscious Intelligence or Wisdom

Nichola will be sharing the journey of Wisdom through Divine Source. Cultivating one’s relationship with Divine Source is a portal for accessing Conscious Intelligence or Wisdom, the intersection of intellect and intuition.  When in relationship with Source we make decisions from our truest nature thereby answering the universal desire to live a highly intuitive, inclusive and Joyful life. Access to Divine Source and Conscious Intelligence is available to everyone.

As a deepening practice for connecting with Divine Source, Nichola will incorporate an experience of mantra or sacred utterance as part of our time together. Mantra utilizes sound and repetition to open the channel to deeper concentration, tranquility and connectedness to the full resonance of life.

The Embodied Path of Personal Power, Purpose and Peace

What is required to fully embrace life, in its cycle of birth, death and rebirth? How do we revere one another’s human spirit, bounteous with courage, tenacity and strength? What is required to fully embrace freedom regardless of any restriction or constriction? How might hearts and minds hold states of joy amidst and despite all sorrow, suffering and challenge?

Time has come for the enlightened knowing and greater understanding of what true humanity is, and how living and being that empowers aliveness. This is a compassionate look at how to love… how to be loved… and what is required to gently embrace a world that has been dealt great trauma, tragedy and turmoil. Hold the heart and soul of our world with tenderness, kindness and a spirit of generosity. One person can change the world.
