Lots of people are travelling but a lot is happening in our little world city.

A quick glance at the calendar illustrates the growing local popularity of mindfulnessmeditation and spirit. Traditional practices from the east imported by the west are finding their place in daily life everywhere.

However it is packaged — stress-management, performance skills, tarot, channels, psychics, angels, saints, ancestors, guides, masters — these tools help us develop the intuition we are born with. This is a welcome change from recent times when personal growth and economic growth were at odds.

More businesses making the connection between health of humans and a healthy bottom line are hiring in-house wellness professionals, yoga teachers and life coaches to care for their most valuable assets.

Whether we are working in a corporation, running our own business, nurturing a family, teaching tomorrow’s leaders, studying or freelance contracting, we can learn to pay closer attention to what’s going on around us and what’s going on within us to begin making more conscious choices every day.

What do you do to stay awake in your world?

As an extension of spirit, the true nature of the human potential is joy of being.

Facilitated and channeled by spiritual teacher Amara Tia Ann, Rising of The Phoenix – Awakening Your Golden Light Body of Joy is a roadmap to becoming joy. Amara Tia began serving as a professional energy healer and channel in 2004. Her work is recommended by world renowned spiritual teacher Judy Satori.
