Empowerment:
The Mystery of the White Lotus and the Sky-Dakinis

This event will be a potent inner journey into the depths of our own luminous natures. And in the course of this passage, we shall receive Empowerments from three Tibetan Buddhist meditational deities. The result of an encounter with such luminous energy-beings is to invite a metamorphosis of our own being, empowering us to live from a deeper level of ourselves.

Through Ritual, Mantra and Catalytic Sound, we will enter into a realm of consciousness known as the Sambhogakaya in Tibetan Buddhism (or the realm of pure light and sound).

To enter the Sambhogakaya is to enter into a deeply healing and transformational state of body and mind. And through the restorative nature of this inner realm we can make contact with our innate enlightened nature (bodhicitta).

We shall undertake this journey by entering into the White Lotus, a meditative form of our own Sahasrara (crown chakra). Through this transcendent and transpersonal portal we will experience three potent transformers of consciousness – White Tara, Black Tara and the Sky-Dakinis.

White Tara is known to Tibetan Buddhists as The Swift Protectress due to her ability to act quickly in order to protect the mind from the snares of samsara (the delusion of duality). She is sattvic in nature, meaning that her vibrational field is calming, gently transformative and nurturing. Her nature is luminous white light. She exists in the Sambhogakaya, the realm of pure sound and light. Interaction with White Tara is believed by Tibetan Buddhist Practitioners to protect and extend life span. The purpose of such protection is so that we can attain liberation from our own delusions of duality and reach enlightened-realization (direct awareness of our own Buddha-nature or bodhicitta).

Black Tara is a primordial expression of transformative potency. Like White Tara, she resides in the Sambhogakaya (realm of pure sound and light). But unlike White Tara, Black Tara is neither calming nor nurturing in the usual sense of these words.
As an emanation of dark luminosity, she can enter into deeply unconscious realms of our consciousness and transform them through the potent radical transformation that is her very nature. Interaction with Black Tara during meditative states is to invite the death of our deepest set negativities (obscurations and defilements).

The Sky-Dakinis are tantric protectors that are lightning-like, in that they can illuminate the sky of our inner Mind. And it is here, in the Great Space of our being, that liberation from our delusion of duality is attained.

As with all of Tom Kenyon’s workshops, sound will play an important role in the transformational process, and much of the day will be spent in sound meditations. Through his nearly four-octave range voice, Tom will open an energetic doorway to the realms of pure light and sound (the Sambhogakaya) through which you will be able to experience these potent transformers of consciousness for yourself.

One does not need to be a Buddhist to take this Intensive. But one should be comfortable with deeply altered states of consciousness and be prepared for rapid transformation.

Sound Healing Training

Seattle, Washington
September 1-5, 2011

This is Tom’s most comprehensive training for those interested in intuitive Sound Healing.

During this five-day sound intensive, participants will learn the basic neurophysiology and science underlying sound healing, side-by-side with ancient esoteric and mystical understandings of sound. Tom is well known for his ability to present complex scientific concepts in an engaging and easy-to-understand manner. And this union of the scientific basis for sound healing with the esoteric makes this a powerfully engaging transformational experience.

This is a hands-on experience, in that participants will have ample opportunities to explore the methods and techniques of toning for themselves. This is not an intellectually dry or theoretical training, but rather a rich experiential journey into the healing and transformational powers of sound. As part of this five-day Intensive Tom will not only teach the methods of vocal sound healing, he will take participants into direct experiences through group sessions and explorations. Participants will leave with a theoretical understanding and a practical mastery of sound healing allowing you to work as sound healers.

Absolutely no experience with sound healing or music is required. Each participant will receive a Sound Healing Training Certificate upon completion of the course.

Along with learning the brain science involved in the art of sound healing, you will learn the psychological aspects of using sound when working with emotions and what is sometimes referred to as the “emotional body.” Additionally, you will spend much of the five-day Training immersed in a sound field created by Tom’s catalytic sound meditations that activate the right brain, so you are not only learning about how to work as a sound healer, but you are in a sound healing environment yourself.

Retreat Into Snow Mountain:
A Buddhist Tantric Meditation Retreat

Orcas Island, Washington
October 7-9, 2011

We will commune with, and receive empowerments from four potent meditation deities during the course of this Retreat. Through interaction with these archetypal forces of intelligence we will refine and elevate our awareness. We will release the Great Light of Luminosity into the dark places of our heart/minds in order to transform personal negativity into liberation. And we shall enter the hidden cave that resides in Snow Mountain to purify and elevate our life force.

One does not need to be a Buddhist (nor have taken Buddhist Refuge) to enter into this work. However, one should be comfortable with deeply altered states of awareness for extended periods of time. This Retreat is not for the faint of heart, nor for curiosity seekers. The meditation deities we shall commune with are potent transformers of consciousness, and one should enter into this work prepared for nothing less than profound and rapid transformation, therefore this retreat is not recommended for beginners.

The Primary Meditation Deities for this Retreat

White Tara
White Tara is known to Tibetan Buddhists as The Swift Protectress due to her ability to act quickly in order to protect the minds of Practitioners (tantric meditators) from the snares of samsara (the delusion of duality). She is sattvic in nature, meaning that her vibrational field is calming, gently transformative and nurturing. Her nature is luminous white light. She exists in the Sambhogakaya, the realm of pure sound and light. Interaction with White Tara is believed to protect and extend life span. The purpose of such protection is so that we can complete The Dharma of Great Perfection during this lifetime. In this instance, the Great Perfection refers to liberation from our own delusions of duality and the attainment of enlightened-realization (direct awareness of our own Buddha-nature or bodhicitta).

Black Tara
Black Tara is a primordial expression of feminine transformative potency. Like White Tara, she resides in the Sambhogakaya (realm of pure sound and light). But unlike White Tara, Black Tara is neither calming nor nurturing, in the usual senses of these words. As an emanation of dark luminosity, she can enter into deeply unconscious realms of our consciousness and transform them through the potent radical transformation that is her very nature. Interaction with Black Tara during meditative states is to invite the death of our deepest set negativities (obscurations and defilements) and any personal identity/identities that may be associated with those delusions.

Amitaba
Amitaba, the Buddha of Infinite Light, is associated with the Pure Lands. Interaction with this meditative deity imparts an increase of enlightened luminosity.

Amitayus
Amitayus is the Buddha of Infinite Life and is the “brother” of Amitaba. Amitayus embodies the tantric mystery of how spiritual light (symbolized by Amitaba) becomes biological life (symbolized by Amitayus). Interaction with Amitayus in meditative states allows us to partake of a highly refined life-enhancing substance known as the nectar of immortality. While communing with this tantric deity is believed to increase life-force, the primary reason we will engage this Buddha is to refine our life-force and transform it into higher vibratory realms.

The first phase of this Retreat will center upon ever-deepening interactions with White and Black Tara for the purpose of purifying our personal consciousness and life-force as well as transforming our inner demons (i.e., sub-personalities) that contaminate and constrict us. This is potent, powerful and demanding work.

The second phase of the work will be to enter into Snow Mountain (known as the Ming Ma by Taoists), which is an energy center located along the spine, behind the navel, sometimes called the Seat of Life. It is from this inner vortex that life-force flows throughout the body. It is through meditation focused within Snow Mountain that we receive the transformative life-enhancing nectar from Amitayus.

As stated previously, this tantric Retreat is not for casual participants. Interaction with these particular meditative deities releases a potent and formidable force that dismantles personal delusions.

As with all Tom Kenyon workshops and retreats, thorough information is given so that you understand the process, while Tom’s sounds are the catalytic vehicle for transformation. In other words, there will be a significant amount of toning in this retreat, to take you deeper into receptive states of consciousness.

Additionally, workshops held on Orcas Island are distinctly enhanced by the vibration and heightened energy of this amazing island. This is particularly true of this event, as it will be held in the Discovery House of Rosario Resort, a waterfront destination resort, where Orca Whales ply the waters surrounding the island and Eagles frequent the skies.

*Note: Tom’s Retreats on Orcas Island tend to fill quickly as seating is more limited. Thus, early registration is strongly suggested to secure a place. Furthermore, due to its remote location on the island, you will most likely need to fly into either Seattle Sea/Tac Airport or Vancouver, BC and then either rent or share a car to drive to Orcas. Be aware of travel requirements before you send your deposit.

When: October 7th – 9th 2011 (Begins at 10 AM Friday. Ends Sunday at 4 PM)
Where: Orcas Island, Washington
Cost: $595* for deposits received by September 7, 2011.
*($645. after September 7th.)
Pre-registration: Send a $300 deposit made payable to Tom Kenyon, PO Box 98, Orcas, WA 98280 in order to hold a place in this Retreat. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable for any and all reasons. In other words, be sure you are able to attend this Retreat before you sign up. Your deposit is a contract to attend.

Transmissions of Light

Seattle, Washington
November 11-13, 2011

The KA was known to the ancient Egyptians as a second “energy body,” which was sometimes referred to as the etheric double or spiritual twin.

When your KA body rises up in vibration and this increase in vibratory rate is consciously embraced (as opposed to being resisted), your consciousness is raised up as well. Practical intuition improves, incidences of serendipity increase, and insights into spiritual truths (as well as spiritual lies) become self-evident.

The Hathors will be transmitting etheric light during this event to raise the vibratory rates of our KA bodies to encourage a specific type of ascension. This form of ascension is not about escape from physical Earth-reality or from your life.

It is, rather, about living your life more fully, empowering you to shape your own destiny with the abilities of an enlivened consciousness.

Eventually, the ascension process may lead one to the creation of an immortal light body (what the ancient Egyptians called the Sahu, or Golden Raiment). But this higher-level attainment is not reached by avoiding life. Rather it is attained by bringing into your life the attributes of an elevated consciousness. This is the path of ascension as held by the Hathors.

During the course of this Intensive, we will access what the Hathors call the fifth dimensional light body, an energetic body that still possesses form, much like the physical body (and the KA), but resides in a higher vibrational realm of consciousness.

When changes occur in this higher dimensional body (i.e. the 5th), they directly affect the KA body (our etheric double or spiritual twin). Thus, at a practical level, this work is, first and foremost, about raising the vibratory rate of our KA bodies.

In order to accomplish this extraordinary feat, the Hathors will transmit etheric light—via the use of catalytic sound—to our fifth dimensional bodies. Furthermore, in order to accelerate the raising of our KA bodies, they will be transmitting this etheric light from their own multidimensional bodies (including dimensions from the fifth through the twelfth).

A note from Tom
Advanced practitioners may find it interesting that the Hathors (according to their own self-description) reside in the fifth through the thirteenth dimensions of consciousness. Hathors who reside in the higher dimensions (i.e. 9 -13) are the ancient masters of their culture. In past Hathor events, Hathors from the 5th through the 9th dimensions have participated, with occasional visitations by Hathors from the 10th and 11th dimensions, but this will be the first event where we will be assisted by Hathors from the twelfth dimension. What this means exactly is anybody’s guess, but I suspect that their participation is due to the critical nature of current events. And I also suspect that being in the presence of twelfth dimensional energies will be an extremely potent and transformational catalyst.

Transmissions of Light of this caliber tend to produce powerful energetic phenomena, and they are not advised for beginners or idle curiosity seekers.

Note: On Friday evening, November 11th, 2011 (11/11/11) during our first session of this Intensive, we will join our world ˆ (spiritual community) in a Hathor World Meditation. Information about this World Meditation Event will be posted in the Hathor section of the website—www.tomkenyon.com. If you receive Hathor Planetary Messages, you will automatically receive this information as soon as it is given. If you wish to receive future Hathor Planetary Messages, you can sign up for this free service by going to the Contact section of the Home Page.

Due to the anticipated large response to this event, pre-registration is required.

Please note: The wait list for this event is full. We are no longer accepting deposits or names for the wait list.
