Michele Laub, RScP Our Keynote Speaker
Toltec Master of the Four Agreements
 

Over 25 years ago, I founded Human Potential Unlimited, Inc. an organization dedicated to supporting individuals in their quest for personal freedom and happiness. As a licensed mental health counselor in private practice and high school counselor, I discovered many fundamental tools for supporting clients to live the life of their dreams.

After about 5 years, I shifted focus from traditional psychotherapy to a more eclectic approach as a certified life coach. My coach sent me a copy of The Four Agreements, by don Miguel Ruiz. In this ancient wisdom, I found what I had been looking for--a simple method for uncovering the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy, and a blueprint to follow a well.

This led me to a group of seekers known as Toltec Dreamers, in the Toltec Mystery School. Under the guidance of an original apprentice of don Miguel Ruiz, my personal transformation took place. Using The Four Agreements and The Fifth Agreement as a template for living, my life and the lives of my clients kept improving.

In 2010 I found the Science of Mind; it became clear to me that Ruiz and Holmes were saying the same thing. The wisdom of these visionaries is at the core of my teaching, coaching, and practitioner work. Together, they truly present a roadmap for living our best lives.

My life’s purpose is to share these tools, practices and wisdom as I guide people to uncover their limiting beliefs, make new agreements, and live as the divine expression of who they were meant to be. I am honored and grateful to present this wisdom with Religious Science Practitioners at this gathering of Joy in Connection.

David Washington, the Director of Music at CSL Asheville since 2014, is a composer/singer/ keyboardist dedicated to providing music that describes the experience of people aspiring to spiritual wholeness.  He emphasizes the potency of showing up in true identity in everyday practical living.

David has played in churches, centers and bands since his early teens and sang in choirs and groups since adolescence.  He organized and led a gospel choir in the early 70’s, and provided music for Unity in Huntington (NY) in the 80’s while touring with a New Thought trio, The Light Touch.  David continued to develop his craft while becoming ordained as a minister with Emissaries of Divine Light and led the music program at several of their Centers.

David continues to write and perform regularly.  His primary style is contemporary with a spiritually creative message.  Elements of rock, pop, gospel, R&B and reggae show up in his songs.  In late 2014, he released the Glory Road CD.  Early in 2015, he released the Let’s Get Real CD.  His newest creation of New Thought sing-alongs, in partnership with OneVoice titled Happiness is My Choice, was released in the summer of 2015.

SOAK IN THE PEACEFUL TRANQUILITY OF MARINA RAYE

Marina Raye was born in the Congo where she spent her first ten years.  The uniqueness of Marina’s original flute compositions has earned her the description, “The Feminine Voice of the Native Flute.”  She draws inspiration from her deep love for the Earth as she shares her vision of the awakening of peace in every heart. She has 20 CD’s and is working on number 21.  Her music is used by many in the healing professions to invoke a state of peace and closeness to nature. Marina’s flutes are made by her husband, Charlie Sheppard. 

 
  JOIN US FOR AN AMAZING
LABYRINTH EXPERIENTIAL

"The labyrinth is a tool for transformation. By following the labyrinthine path we encounter metaphors for our path through life. There is something mysterious, soothing and healing about walking these concentric circles. Time for walks in the labyrinth at CSL Asheville is included in our Gathering Schedule.

We'll also share the super fun Appleton Dance on our labyrinth at CSLA. This is an opportunity to walk the same path as your partner while holding hands. The mystery appears when you realize that you are both walking in opposite directions while walking together. (I know. It doesn't make sense. The magic appears when you do it).
