Penny Rosenwasser is the author of Visionary Voices, Women on Power: Conversations with shamans, activists, teachers, artists and healers, and Voices from a ‘Promised Land:’ Palestinian & Israeli peace activists speak their hearts. A life-long heartfelt rabble-rouser for justice, she earned her Ph.D. at the California Institute of Integral Studies (San Francisco) in Transformational Learning & Change.

Elle Collier Re

program date: 
Mon, 07/30/2012

Host Sutree talks with Eller Collier Re about her work, her insights and the divinely inspired wisdom that comes through her.

Elle awakened into Unity consciousness in her early 20's. For the next two decades, her life revolved around prayer, meditation, zen practice, and independent spiritual inquiry until her mind became fully accessible to the Emanating Spirit of Divine Counsel.

What People Gain from this Teaching

Elle is fully awake to the Divine Word, and has become a bridge to the Godmind within. She is a midwife to the Soul, assisting all in bringing forth their prime Design and Path. Elle resonates to the quality of Light of each person, responding empathically and telepathically to the nature of both human and soul, and inspiring us to True Awareness.

In this Gatework, we are immersed in the divine theme of Being, and taught to live in a way that is Divinity reliant and at-one with the Core Self ... the God-Essence within. The awakened individual is freed of negative concepts and able to live in interactive communion to the Whole.

These experiences of unity consciousness merge the Sublime Truth into the logic and point the way from separation into Unity.

The purpose of INEI ~ RE is to assist all who seek transcendence. This is an extraordinary, powerful training. It provides the path through the many veils of partial truth, and enables those who are delvers into the mysteries of existence to consciously discover the miracle of the divine Soul of All, and their own sacred Core.

Laurie Ogle has spent the last two years working and studying with Lori Lorenz of the EFT Training Center for Trauma and Abuse in Southern Oregon. She has also spent the last twenty years involved with AA on her own path to recovery. After relapsing four times Laurie came across EFT, also known as Meridian Tapping, and it changed her life forever. Laurie states that while AA is very good in many ways for recovery, it does not address childhood trauma and abuse, which can sometimes be at the root of addictions. EFT facilitated her own recovery in incredble and transformative ways. As Laurie says, "It saved my life".
