DALIEN, aka 13 HANDS - Special Presenter

"Slow Down, Chill Out and Get Some Sleep... NOW!"

Closing our conference will be a very special offering by DALIEN, aka 13 HANDS!

This Grammy nominee, Professor of Yoga has a special gift of being able to play 30 instruments, has 15 albums, brings 25 years of yoga practice and an inspiring journey of curing Crohns, Colitis and a host of endocrine system challenges that nearly killed him; all cured with natural, holistic approaches and a vegan, plant, living foods based lifestyle... and lots of wheatgrass!

This experiential presentation will begin with a deeply meditative sound healing to center the breath and nervous system allowing for space...

space in between the inhale and exhale cycle as to start the re-balancing and re-patterning of our understanding of para-sympathetic nervous system response.  When under stress or a health adversity, many times one's sleep cycle is compromised.  The circadian rhythms, relaxed body breathing, integrated Delta brain wave sleep experiences become challenged, and for some, 7 hours of peaceful, undisturbed sleep is just not possible.

"All health, mental, physical, emotional and spiritual begins with the breath"... that's what the yoga teaches us.

Dalien will provide a few very thorough "connecting of the dots" with various sound, yoga and breath experiences to strengthen your understanding between organ function, the chakras, emotional stress and the links to their physical manifestations.  And by the end of the evening, you'll be completely chilled out for this sort of spiritual, "Pink Floyd-esque" state of relaxation. It's Yoga Nidra, Nada Yoga, Shamanic Journey and Samadhi all wrapped up in one; designed to help you feel this inter-connectedness to everything.  You will have a great nights sleep and with your conference registration, you'll receive a clinically proven music download gift for relaxation and sleep!  Dalien and his "13 HANDS" of health is one of those fun, authentic and inspiring presenters as he teaches from direct experience and is "living proof" having been on his own wellness path for over two decades.  

His offering ends with a tribal processing circle and interactive music finale to integrate and unify all the positive energy and healing intentions of the conference!

DALIEN, aka 13 HANDS is a 2 time Grammy nominee, Professor of Yoga at Montclair State University and Sacred, Sound Shamanic Therapist, Kirtan Wallah, Bhakti/Nada yogi paying it forward in yoga centers, retreats, corporate, education and other arenas.  He has 15 albums, plays 30 instruments and shares inspiring wisdom/insights into the mind, body, spirit and wellness relationships that come from a humbling and powerful journey in how he cured himself of a near death journey of  Crohns, colitis and other severe endocrine issues via various holistic methods and raw/living food lifestyle.  He's had the honor to share/teach alongside Shiva Rea to Seane Corn to Krishna Das to Snatam Kaur to Sean Johnson to Jack Kornfield, Anne Lamott, Dr. Emoto, Gary Null and The Dalai Lama.  He brings a lot of good vibes, fun, REAL authentic life experience/wisdom and love where ever he goes.

Beloff is working on her second documentary film about hypnosis, which is currently in post production. Beloff is in the process of designing a self-empowerment leadership course for women. The goal of the course is to teach and coach women to discover their voice and feminine power to find fulfillment in their personal and professional lives.

"Consciousness and Ecological Economy"

Although it has been shown that we live in an interconnected world and we are part of something bigger than ourselves, still prevails in most economies, education systems, academia and society, a vision of separation and individuality, which often resulted in dire consequences for humanity and nature. Therefore, the subject of this paper emerges from these concerns, the deterioration of the social and ecological conscience and that widespread disconnect between humans and nature.

Ivonne holds a Ph.D. in Environmental Economics and Natural Resources at Ohio State University, has a Master's Degree in Economics (M.A.) from Ohio State University and a Master's in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras Campus. For the last 15 years, as a professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez Campus, she has been teaching courses in microeconomics, environmental economics, economics of natural resources and ecological economics, which she incorporated as a new course in the curriculum of her department. Dr. Diaz was the manager and president of the organizing committee of the First International Congress of Ecological Economics in Puerto Rico (CONECEC 2015) held in 2015 and is also the coordinator of the organizing committee of the Third Congress of the Mesoamerican Society for Ecological Economics (COSMEE 2016) to be held in the RUM from 15 to 19 November 2016. She has also taught Latin America economics courses, behavioral economics and agricultural economics, at sub-graduate and graduate levels. Dr. Diaz has also taken courses and trainings in Hypnotherapy, Holographic Alignment and Therapeutic Writing, which allowed her to continue expanding her consciousness and supporting the transformation towards sustainable economies in harmony with nature.

"The Dancing Fool: Consciousness Awareness Thorugh Movement"

The imprints of all our past, present and future experiences are stored in our bodies. Additionally, the entire map of consciousness is stored there as well, deeply held in our spine. By consciously moving our bodies with awareness and purpose we can clear any no-longer useful emotional resonance and memory, create new and more empowering pathways and access higher truths of consciousness.

Scott is a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Certified Holographic Alignment Specialist and serves as the Vice President to the Board of Directors of Art of Embracing Life, a global non-profit organization who’s mission is to assist in the awareness of consciousness throughout the globe. Scott has been studying contemplation, self-examination and meditation since 1996, yoga since 2007, vibrational medicine since 2011 and free-form expression dancing since 2014.

Scott's aim is to assist others in finding their own power within and their own way in healing themselves as he also continues his own work of self-healing. Scott uses his years of studying awareness to assist himself and others in removing densities, blockages and unsupportive energies in order to live a more authentic life.
