The Biology of Bliss: Oxytocin, Self-Health
Presented by Dr. Norm Shealy
Suppose there was an elixir of health? Not one you would drink, but one that you could apply to specific points on your body in just 30 seconds. Suppose you could use specific elixirs to increase DHEA, the most important hormone in your body? Or perhaps you would prefer to activate calcitonin, essential for bone strength and pain control? Or perhaps you just want to reduce the scavenging effects of free radicals that essentially “rust” your body? In this workshop, Dr. Shealy will present fascinating information about how to stimulate the production of Oxytocin. Discover how increasing your body’s production of this powerful hormone can motivate better self-care and altruism, all of which are keys to feeling happy and at peace with yourself and the world. Participants will practice and experience the techniques for themselves. For more details and a 9-minute video, click here.

The New Brain Science: 2-part series
Presented by J. David Forbes, M.D.
Part 1: Practical Applications for Personal, Professional and Planetary Evolution
Human beings are wired for connection. Our brains actually grow and are shaped by the loving connections and deep safety that we experience and encounter in life. Join us as we explore how the latest neuroscience is showing us how flexible and fantastic our brains are, and how the roots of our finest development lie in our deep, loving connection with the universe and our fellow beings.

Einstein’s Greatest Question: “Is the Universe a Friendly Place?”
A reporter once asked Albert Einstein, “What is the greatest question facing humanity?” The unusual and unexpected answer he gave was, “The most important question facing humanity is, ‘Is the universe a friendly place?’” He went on to expound on how each person’s own answer to this question determines everything that follows.
Einstein knew that the most important thing in life is whether we feel safe… or not. If we regard the universe as malignant, or even neutral, we will structure our world in such a way that we are constantly perceiving – and defending ourselves from – danger. If we feel and believe that the Universe is benevolent and loving, we will work in accordance with that support. Our thoughts, words, behaviors – and therefore our lives – then proceed in a completely different direction.
In this time of accelerating and conscious evolution, our most essential task is to become aware of our own automatic answer to this question and begin to change it. In this workshop, we will explore our own individual answers to this question as well as the clinical and healing aspects of real safety.

Ten “Incurables” that Heal with Integrative Medicine
Presented by Dr. Robban Sica
Many of the conditions and diseases commonly considered “incurable” are only so within the limitations of allopathic medical practices. However, a whole world of possibilities exists when natural and integrative approaches are considered.
In this seminar, we will explore ten diseases and conditions that have baffled modern medicine, and the variety of alternative and complementary approaches that work wonders. You may find it surprising how easily certain so-called incurables can be resolved by discovering their typical underlying causes and bringing the body, mind and spirit back into balance.

EcoTherapy; Nature as Nurturer and Supportive Ally
Facilitated by Lois Grasso
Most cultures view Mother Nature as a threatening force to be feared or conquered. Even environmentalists who love and appreciate the trees, flowers, rivers, oceans and the delicate balance maintained by the ecosystem, are often surprised to find that conditioning, deep within the human psyche, blinds us from amazing possibilities. With the right attitude, we find that Nature is willing to nurture us and waiting to support us far beyond the typical “uses” we find for her bounty and beauty. The level of intimacy we can have with elements of nature, may well dwarf anything experienced in human relationships. And it’s consistently reliable!
This program consists of two parts:
1) Open Session: On board the ship, we will explore ideas and principles put forth by a variety of leaders in the burgeoning new field of EcoTherapy (aka Nature Therapy or EcoPsychology). Participants will share iconic experiences we’ve had with Nature and explore how they shaped our emotional health, perceptions of ourselves and sense of safety in relationship to the Earth and Sea. There is no extra fee for this session.
All group members are welcome | 90-minutes | 1.5 CNEs available
2) Inside Track: Those who choose to go deeper will embark together on a “field trip” into Mangrove Lagoon in St. Thomas, for a deeply intimate experience with Mother Nature. Participants will learn and practice a simple, yet potentially ego-challenging, process for instantly establishing a mutually-supportive and intimate relationship with tropical fish while snorkeling among them, and with exotic birds, coral blue water, sky and tropical trees while kayaking.
Limited to 35 participants | Attendance at Part 1 required | Tuition supplement: $125 includes program, transportation and equipment | 4 CNEs available
Expressing Your Passion
Feeds Your Immune System
Presented by Dr. Dorothy Martin-Neville, Ph.D.
The newest field in healthcare, Epigenetics now offers scientific evidence that confirms what those of us in the field of energy medicine have known for some time: Your DNA is not a static reality. Your predispositions – or resistance – to particular diseases, , can change throughout the course of your life. . The environment within which your DNA lives and transforms itself has an immense impact.
Your greatest physical support system is your immune system. It can be weakened or strengthened by the stress you live under, the energetic patterns you develop and, most importantly, the spiritual beliefs which govern your live. These factors create the inner physical environment.
If you allow yourself to express and live your passion, the constant flow of energy, the near constant stimulation of creative thought, and the flow (rather than stagnant energy) which that occurs, supports your immune system right down to the level of your DNA. Come learn how your passion changes every element of your life on a physical level.

The I Ching: How Ancient Chinese Symbols Can Change the Present Moment
Presented by Mary Miller, MSW
Virtually every human being has the potential for a happy and satisfying life. However past hurts and wounds often prevent us from manifesting the best of ourselves. A balanced person is free to express his or natural gifts and resources. Nothing is more fulfilling and satisfying than doing what you are here to do.
Western medicine offers limited solutions to emotional imbalance and distress. If you are looking for some real answers, join us for a look at how Eastern approaches to mental health and well-being can provide you with a genuine sense of inner balance.
The Ancient Chinese Book of Changes, The I Ching, might just be the best psychological diagnostic manual on Earth. It tells each of us about our greatest gifts and resources, along with our vulnerabilities. The 64 six-line Hexagrams are the binary math code keys to the universe. They contain the solutions to energetic balance.
In this workshop, we will explore the meaning of these codes and how to apply this knowledge in our lives. A balanced person has the potential to fulfill his or her natural destiny.
