Deep Ecology of the Mind

February 1, 2015 - February 8, 2015

Class Description:

Mainstream philosophy and psychology is based almost exclusively on ordinary states of consciousness. In reality however, influential patterns come from the womb, previous incarnations, and from beyond individual human existence. In accordance with this idea is to understand that as long as we systematically avoid contact with the deeper dimensions of mind, we will not be able to understand where we came from or why our lives have the shape they do. Via refined knowledge and practices it is possible to access the portals of awareness which illuminate the larger patterns that structure our existence and are essential to truly knowing ourselves. Each life is an opportunity to rethink our identity and by doing so, explode our conventional reference point which has become our identity. The ability to do so, lies within every single one of us, but often does not emerge spontaneously or by accident. That is why we have crafted a highly-specialized event in an ideal environment for this deeper understanding to emerge and evolve. An environment free from over-stimulation and distraction where you are expertly guided and unequivocally supported in the navigation of the Self; so that you can go beyond those illusory boundaries into Deep Ecology of the Mind.

Jay Schumacher, CHt 

Jay Schumacher, CHt is a Master Hypnotist, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Transformational Life Coach, intuitive, and professor of subjects relative to the nature of personal reality and consciousness.

Often regarded as a “contemporary shaman” and master of transformation, he has assisted people around the world and from all walks of life on the path to personal freedom. Jay sees each client as a unique expression of divine consciousness and limitless creative potential. His guiding philosophy is to follow the mind of the client or group and comprehensively deal with what emerges.

Jay draws inspiration from a diverse educational background, profound life experiences, and his own personal transformation. His past includes a successful career as an automotive designer and corporate executive, parent, and Olympic style athlete, as well as a life-altering, debilitating illness from which it was predicted he would never heal, but did!

Via his own transformational journey of “awakening” which included deep explorations of his own mind and some truly enlightening metaphysical experiences, Jay has emerged as a most unique facilitator of what might best be referred to as “Legacy Consciousness”.

His knowledge ranges from the human mind and global consciousness to contemporary science, the environment, spirituality, universal law and the nature of personal reality. Per this knowledge, combined with mastery of an extensive array of therapeutic techniques, Jay has achieved great success as a re-educator of the mind and transformational therapist. His goal is always to amplify our potential for freedom and optimal wellness as well as to create a more sustainable, harmonious planetary experience for all. Jay has an innate ability to see deeply into an individual’s mind-set and life situations and endeavors to teach his clients to see just as deeply within themselves. Complimentary to his practice, he also provides consultation in the areas of Environmental Illness (EI) and awareness, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS) and optimal wellness practices.

Jay currently lives with his partner Caroline on sacred land deep in the Andes Mountains of southern Ecuador where he is involved in his practice as well as projects relative to sustainable earth stewardship and the creation of a very special sanctuary dedicated to consciousness education and the evolution of mankind in harmonious relationship with nature.
