From Mirabai of Woodstock, mirabai@tunedinweb.com

Dear Friends,

Welcome to another magical season of wonder this summer here at Mirabai.  We’ll be featuring a host of new teachers this season along with our venerable continuing faculty.   A special focus this season will be on self examination as we delve into the writings of Byron Katie (The Work), A.H. Almaas (the Diamond Approach), Derek O’Neill (More Truth Will Set You Free) and Jason Shulman (Kabbalistic Healing).  

We’ll also be exploring our astrological charts in relation to our family relationships, our body’s subconscious language, our sprit and animal guides, our souls, our living spaces – even our facial characteristics.  So what are you waiting for?  Come to Mirabai this summer and walk away with a new consciousness and sense of purpose.  Full descriptions for all of these happenings can be found at www.mirabai.com and click on the Workshops tab to find out more.

Attached is the schedule in the form of a Word document you can save and print out, but you can also visit us online at www.mirabai.com to access information about our workshops and instructors, or stop by the information center in our store.  When you find a workshop that interests you, simply give us a call at (845) 679-2100 to pre-register and reserve a place – we’re there from 11 to 7 each day to take your payment information and register you.  Keep in mind that many of our workshops have sold out in past seasons, so remember to register early!


Thanks again to all of you for your continued support and enthusiasm for this special place called Mirabai.

Warmest wishes and blessings,

Jeff and Audrey

The Work of Byron Katie

A workshop with facilitator Jeanette Stephens


"My partner doesn't appreciate me." "The world is a dangerous place." "I need more money" "I'm too fat."  Thoughts like these may run through our minds many times a day, fostering fear, anger, stress, and depression. How different would your life be if these thoughts never bothered you again? The Work of Byron Katie is a process that clears the mind. It is a way to identify and question the thoughts that cause all suffering within us and violence in the world. The Work is simply four questions and a turnaround, which is a way of experiencing the opposite of what you believe. It is so simple and anyone can do it. This process works. It is radical and life-changing. Come experience the power of The Work.


Cost: $15 if registered and prepaid by June 4th; $20 if registering after the 4th.

The Journey of Remembrance:  An Exploration of Prayer & Meditation

A workshop with Sister Kala Iyengar of Peace Village


'Remembrance' is probably the most basic and natural skill of the human mind. It is also the most powerful key to getting in touch with anyone, especially when separated by physical distance. It is no wonder that the practice of remembering God is ageless and eternal. Most of us have remembered God in different forms at different times in our life. How can we make this remembrance more relevant and rewarding for our times? With some practice, remembrance of God can be experienced as a journey we

undertake with a guided path and a clear destination.  This retreat will throw light on the intricacies of the intention, the awareness, and the attainments of remembrance as experienced through non-denominational prayer and meditation. Participants do not need to be regular practitioners of prayer or meditation, but should be inclined to deepen their relationship with God.  Please come prepared for experiencing the 'Presence' in silence, writing with a focus, and sharing with like-minded seekers.

Cost:  $15 if registered and prepaid by June 7th; $20 if registering after the 7th.

Clairvoyant counseling with Rev. Betsy Stang


In this special evening of clairvoyant channeling, we will meet to explore how we can manifest our dreams in this new and challenging time.  Sometimes we come to a place where we need to listen to our higher selves, but alone, we cannot often silence our doubts enough to hear.  If you carry a dream for transformation and healing deep within your heart, now is the time to listen to your inner wisdom. Bring your questions, your dreams and your sense of humor.  Betsy acts as a facilitator for that process. Her deep listening and validation of the voices our true spirit knows can give us the strength and affirmations to move ahead in alignment with our souls unfolding.   This is a letter in a bottle.  If you are called to come, this time will serve you
