    Chief Langley Genealogy Lecture on ''Historical Barriers and Beliefs''

    in History

    Persuasion at work always takes place within a network of relationships. A relationship with someone, somewhere will be the starting point for putting your idea “in play,” and relationships with and between people you may not even know will often be the end point for getting it adopted. You need a circle of influence, a network of people who know people who know people. And it may be too late to form such a circle when you are ready to make your sale. The relationships must already be in place. The biggest barriers, of course, arise when you face negative or hostile relationships in the pathway of your idea.  1.

    The New Essenes: Genealogy & Generativity Part I

    in Spirituality

    On your mark, set? Go! We have this great vehicle – the Path of XPR, equipped with SIX Wheels of Power. We checked the pressure of the TWIN Mission last episode, in its connection to Sentience. Now we are checking the Wheel of the TWIN QKode. That’s a major endeavor, as it secures two complimentary possibilities: to no longer be victim of our genealogy, and thus to be able to generate harmony. Join us for more...

    The New Essenes is a gathering of ordinary people practicing deep introspection as a way to solve everyday problems. Our inquiry is based on the idea that language is alive and that the Word is where our Power lives: since speech is an act, communication is not what is said and done, but the result of what is said and done. By joining in and coming back, we increasingly benefit from the distilled essence of an ultimate method of inquiry, based on Sacred Geometry and known as the Path of XPR.

    Our meetings last one-hour & are structured as follows:

    1.       The first 5 minutes: Welcoming, Checking In. taking a moment of silence.

    2.       The next 10 minutes:  Ritual readings.

    3.       The last 45 minutes: Introduction of a topic. Group Sharing & Inquiry, Summary / Ritual Closing.
