Infinity Foundation Named Best Place for Lifelong Learning Classes and Best Place for Meditation.
There are 360 degrees of possibilities surrounding you. This point—this now—is your potential. To move forward in any direction is to make a choice; you say yes to something and no to all else. This is true regardless of whether or not you are aware of the infinite possibilities present in each moment.
The more attached you are to something, the more your vision is obscured and narrowed, sometimes to the point where you are convinced that there is only one way to proceed. Your attachment to a belief cuts off your ability to see beyond that one possibility. So, as you make choices to let go of attachments that no longer work for you, your options grow and expand. Increase your perspective, as all possibilities are there all along. Blossom into the awareness that you are the constant in every relationship you are in; you are either the constant opportunity for conditional love or unconditional love. The choices you make impact your possibilities because you are alive to love with the complete freedom of life.
Join don Miguel Ruiz Jr., author of The Five Levels of Attachment: Toltec Wisdom for the Modern World and Living a Life of Awreness, as he guides you with experientials and insights into how you developed your belief structures and how to go about re-evaluating—or even severing—these attachments. Open yourself to the blessing and meditation you will receive from Don Miguel, bestselling author of The Four Agreements via Skype, to begin an incredible exploration into a new personal freedom without the hindrances of attachments.
Miguel Jr. draws on the Toltec wisdom passed on from his father, don Miguel Ruiz, and his grandmother, so you can explore how your attachments create your reality and how your beliefs become intimately connected to your identity or who you think you are. Reflect onhow these identities also are based on the opinions and judgments of others.
Utilizing the principles found in Living a Life of Awareness awaken your intent to:
- Become aware of how you confuse who you are with what you know.
- Gain awareness of how your attachments have created your reality.
- Stop creating your identity based on the opinions and judgments of others around you.
- Let go of the fear of what you are without your beliefs.
- Make new agreements that are more in line with your true authentic self.
The whole point of all this work is to be happy to enjoy life and the relationships with the people you love the most, starting with yourself. Tap into the only motivator that brings lasting change, which is self-love. When you love and accept yourself, you want to treat yourself well and be as healthy as you can be. Only then do you have freedom.
“When we believe in something so strongly that we lose awareness of our authentic self within the stories and comments of our internal narrators, we are allowing our preconceptions to make decisions for us. Therefore, it is important to be aware of where we are on the scale of attachment with any particular belief. With awareness, we can regain the power to make our own decisions.”
- don Miguel Ruiz, Jr .

World Peace through Inner Peace
If we are to find world peace in a world where violence and hate exists, we must find inner peace. The world is in upheaval across the globe. Many times, you feel hopeless to positively impact a global crisis such as war, poverty, disease, or catastrophic climate change disasters. If we realize our oneness with the universe, we would reach inner peace automatically. This is the peace that reflects around us within our families, friends, coworkers, neighborhoods, communities, and nations. As individuals, we can help find peace when we have inner peace. Peace begins with each of us, one person at a time.
Meditate til’ late and cultivate a shared awareness of our common humanity and solidarity with the world. The cause of a truly comprehensive and lasting peace can most effectively be furthered by ceaselessly expanding circles of friendship and understanding through dialogue, exchange, and cooperation. Join in this joyous experience that contributes to your own sense of peace and help further world peace.

To a great extent your life mirrors what and how you think. The beliefs and thoughts you have shape your reality. You have tremendous power and unlimited capacity to live a life overflowing with peace, happiness, and love. Take an incredible step into transcending your consciousness and be part of an evolutionary shift in humanity by understanding new discoveries in cell biology, epigenetics, and physics. Find out how love feeds your cells and changes your biology. The blueprint for a brighter, a more vital future is literally inside you—encoded into each of your trillions of cells. Bridge the interaction between your mind and body and influence how your cells receive and process information.
Join Bruce H. Lipton, cell biologist and bestselling author of The Biology of Belief, The Honeymoon Effect, and Spontaneous Evolution, as he uses simple language, illustrations, humor, and everyday examples about the way the new science of epigenetics is revolutionizing the link between mind and matter. Become informed about the mechanics of the mind-body interaction that reveal how your learned perceptions control your behavior, regulate your gene expression, and even contribute to the rewriting of your genetic code. Realize how the mind and Spirit can have a profound impact on your personal life.
The next great advance in biology will change more than science textbooks—it will revolutionize the way you live your life. In the past, you’ve been taught that living beings are like machines run by biochemicals and DNA. What is now known is that your entire biology is shaped by the intelligence of each of your 50 trillion cells. The single most important way to influence them is through transcending your beliefs.
Become informed about:
- Creating your own biology to nurture and feed your cells.
- Seeing how to positively shape your brain to influence your health and well-being.
- Knowing your cells listen and react to the energy of your thoughts.
- Recognizing how love brings bliss and harmony into your body.

Your thoughts are power. What you believe you can become. Acquire self-empowerment and become the master of your fate rather than the victim of your programs. Inspire your spirit, engage your mind, and challenge your creativity as you comprehend the enormous potential for applying this information in your life.
