The Oneness Awakening Course
is a very special and powerful 3 day course held by Oneness Trainers around the planet to help a participant learn about the nature of the mind and how it creates conflict internally and externally in our lives.  It then prepares you through various teachings and meditations to then move into a state of awakening where a person moves outside of the conflicted mind into a state of deep awareness and internal peace.  Everyone attending this entire course will then become a Deeksha Blessing Giver if they so desire.
Once you commit to take this course, your process will begin.  You may notice over the next couple of weeks some things coming up for you that are out of the ordinary.  Some of you may or may not experience anger, frustration, anxiety, joy, happiness, bliss, irritability and some may even experience some physical discomfort.  Just notice this is what is coming up for you & be with it.  Don’t judge it or try to stop it.  It is all normal & to be expected.  If any of you need to discuss anything that you may be going through please feel free to call either one of us.

Fundrasing for an Important Cause, Domestic Violence

Greetings,

Marketing for Gurus has the opportunity to serve many causes with tools such as blogging, event coordination and assisting with fundraising.  I have whole heartedly and enthusiastically joined a foundation of great importance;  The National Advocacy & Training Network,  founded by MonaLou Callery.

Below you will find the areas of support MonaLou has created to help women  in recovery of domestic violence.  I believe you will be impressed by the services provided and, at the same time, will want to lend a hand in making a difference for these women. 

Agency History:

National Advocacy & Training Network

Through grassroots efforts, the National Advocacy & Training Network (NATN) was
incorporated as a non-profit agency in January 2002 by a group of survivors, volunteers,
advocates, and professionals. Our mission is to address the health, safety, economic and
social justice issues related to domestic violence, sexual assault, and substance abuse through
education, public awareness, and direct services. In order to achieve our mission, we operate
three main projects: Training and Technical Assistance; Support, Education, Empowerment &
DirectionS (SEEDs); and Cup O’ Karma: Community Cafe for a Cause.

Programs and Services Overview:

Training and Technical Assistance – NATN provides training and technical assistance
through its’ local and international network of survivors, advocates, and professionals. Last
year, NATN trained 930 individuals about the dynamics of domestic violence.

SEEDs (Support, Education, Empowerment & DirectionS) -“A place to sow, nurture and
grow your heart, mind, body and soul”. The Diane House and the Marilyn House offer
transitional safe homes to address the unmet needs of battered and sexually abused women in
recovery for up to two years, assisting women and their families to achieve self-sufficiency and
live safe, healthy and meaningful lives. SEEDs cultivate the initiative and strength of women
recovering from abuse and addiction through empowerment based advocacy, housing,
healthcare, life skills, education, and job training.

 Cup O’ Karma: Community Cafe for a Cause – NATN provides on the-job-training (OJT)
opportunities for women participating in the SEEDs program through the Job Training Cafe.
Located at 1710 W. Southern Ave., this coffee shop was donated by a local business owner in
June, 2008.

Goals of Cup O’ Karma include:

– Provide quality products and services – offers coffees, teas, smoothies, snacks and
free Wi-Fi; showcase artwork from local artists; Live music and entertainment
Monday, Wed, Friday and Saturdays.
– Provide OJT opportunities for residents of the SEEDs program – two to four
women receive OJT, working 20-hours a week for three (3) months while learning
food service, customer service, marketing, purchasing, and other related skills.
NATN assists the women in locating permanent employment.
– Generate revenue for the agency – All proceeds are used to advance the mission of
NATN. Cup O’ Karma is operated by community volunteers and women
participating in the OJT program; no personnel expenses are accumulated.
 

Project Evaluation:

Evaluation is based on the short, mid and long-term objectives developed for each program.
Services are closely monitored and adjusted as needed based on the results of the objectives.
Feedback is derived from program participants who play a key role in ensuring that NATN is
an efficient and effective community based, grassroots program.

Constituency Served:

Training and Technical Assistance – Offered to any agency, group or citizen interested in
learning more about domestic violence, sexual assault and/or substance abuse.

SEEDs – Homeless, battered and/or sexually assaulted women in recovery.

Cup O’ Karma – Customers are local community members. Baristas are community
volunteers and SEEDs residents participating in the agency’s job-training program.
Community and Volunteer Involvement:

NATN collaborates with government and existing community based services, utilizing all the
necessary resources to assist the women in accomplishing their goals, staying safe and
maintaining their sobriety. Ninety percent (75%) of the women who reside in the SEEDs
program for 6-months or longer become volunteers for NATN or in their community. Our
programs have an active volunteer base of more than 50 individuals who mentor, deliver life
skills, training, provide outreach, and fundraise.

TAO Metaversity, Proposal for land located in Sugar House, Utah

Greetings,

As promised and delivered, the pdf containing the submission for the land in Salt Lake City. This is for the second home of the TAO Metaversity, located in the heart of Sugar House, behind Bed Bath and Beyond off of 1100 East and Wilmington Avenue.  TAO Metaversity

                                                                                                             Sugarhouse_Proposal

The TAO Metaversity submitted the above proposal in mid January 2010.  It gives voice to the possibility of what can be created as a community, in a community that supports community.  This proposal for development of real estate more importantly reflects the development of the human being. This proposal opens up the choice before each one of us to bring the piece we hold to impact the development of such communities.  It is time to be a part of a creative community swarm.Take time to read the goals and vision of the TAO Metaversity.  See where there is a fit for you as an administrator, teacher, awareness and fund raiser, grant writer, artist, alternative health provider – we are listening.

Please contact us and stay involved.  We ask for you to place your heart-intentions for the approval of  this Metaverstiy to be a part of the core in Sugar House.  Our Staff have heard from many of you the desire to teach at our Kayenta location as well as having a location in  Salt Lake City.  The TAO staff believes this is a great fit, enhancing both communities.
 
Your feedback is always welcome.  Our staff is available to answer any questions you might have for what is next and how we can co-create this.
Blessings,
Cam Williams

I invite you to email me if you have an interest in being added to our Guest list for the Meet and Greet Celebraion.

 Announcing and Introducing

 Our

 Kayenta Campus of the TAO Metaversity

In Kayenta, Utah 

 April 2010

 

Shelly’s Experience,

I applaud you Wendy for accepting Cam’s challenge and look forward to what unfolds during the next few weeks!

I would like to take the opportunity afforded me by the posting of this article, Help Wanted.. to express a thought or two.

I am very pleased by the entire Help Wanted  article; I have felt for quite some time, that is  imperative for any who would speak Metaversity in round table, that they be thoroughly familiar with it from what I consider the source. It is good and necessary that we each bring our calling, our craft, modality, understanding, to the Metaversal Table. We invite you to apply for a staff position, as well, becoming part of our Round Table of creation. Contact Support

Being a chef, I am going to prepare my thoughts, using cooking terms. If I am to make a Sauce Bourguignonne, I must first, in my opinion and by my experience, understand a reduction of red wine and that shallots are used. As well, I had better know what a bouquet garni is. If I know these things, and a few other tidbits then I can make the sauce – perfectly. As well I can enhance the recipe my own way understanding the method and ingredients; I can also choose to use the product to my advantage without the product itself being diminished. But if I know not these things, then I have no understanding of what it takes to bring the creation together, let alone all the endless possibilities it offers. That being said…

 I teach at The Metaversity, speak about the Metaversity, teach about the Metaversity, Minister for and in the name of The TAO Metaversity; It is my responsibility to know what the heart of it is, whether or not it is: a red wine reduction or something with reduced red wine in it. There is a big difference! I am here to support you on your journey to get to know the value the TAO holds for you. Our Vision Statement

It is not my dream to re-create it but to co-create with you, and any who are truly willing. I cannot do this without understanding the vision from the visionary who brought it to me. I have claimed my place, defined my role and plan a life that is inclusive of The Metaversity.

 I have not defined what The Metaversity is, that has been done, is being done through you. I may enhance, add, bring, whatever, but I may not define it, speak it and call it the TAO Metaversity, until and unless I am thoroughly versed in everything. I am a student of the TAO Metaversity as well as one of its teachers and am the Minister of Support. I feel a great responsibility to maintain the intent of it, the unfettered simplicity and purity of it.  About Wendy Mendenhall

I am a part of something, a whole conception, a college that resonates deeply within me and feel it to be pure in its intent. If I do not understand it as it stands, I cannot make changes to it, claim it, even contribute to it – I can only take, because honestly without the effort put forth to know the blue print, my intent is half hearted.  I invite you to know us as well The TAO Metaversity

I feel The TAO Metaversity is a gift to most of whom it has been brought, as it stands. The College belongs to everyone who claims it as theirs and who is taking the time to understand what they are claiming. I invite you home.

Looking forward to helping you know us,

Sincerely and Gratefully,

Reverend Shelly Williams,
Minister of Support-TAO Metaversity

The Heart of the TAO Metaversity’s Curriculum – Help Wanted

 February 16, 2010 written by, Wendy Mendenhall, Founder of the TAO Metaversity,

 I have talked to numbers of teachers about teaching at the TAO Metaversity. I have told them, “You need to write a curriculum of what you teach. The curriculum needs to be in a universal language that can be taught in any culture, any religion, any location. The curriculum needs to be a global curriculum – a curriculum that connects us as beings – not a curriculum that connects us into our fears, beliefs, genders, religions, ages, countries, educational level and so many other ways we continue to live in two worlds.

The curriculum needs to be about where we connected before we began all of our individual learning. It needs to unlearn our programming, the many places and ways we seperate ourselves from each other using the education we have been immersed in.”

Well, this week a very dear friend asked some important questions. It got me to thinking about what has been written and what needs to be shared to educate anyone who is called to the TAO Metaversity. Where can the essence of the TAO Metaversity be studied so we are on a universal page concerning this global environment? I realized I must do what I am telling others to do – write the curriculum, or in business terminology, the corporate soul of the TAO Metaversity in order to educate anyone called to teach, learn, raise awareness and funds, elevate and hold vision of the TAO Metaversity.

 The TAO Metaversity must be understood before anyone can say, “How can I help” and really be helpful. So over the next few days and weeks, I am committing to write the heart of the curriculum of the TAO Metaversity. When you understand the heart of the curriculum is in each one of you, then you bring your piece, you understand why you are called. It is about supporting a vision because it makes sense and has the potential to create opportunities for everyone to be sustainable – including the TAO Metaversity. This is sustainability in its purest form.

 The TAO Metaversity’s Want Ad: HELP WANTED:

 The TAO Metaversity is looking for those who understand that for the same reason they educated themselves about all things important in their lives, that they do the same concerning the vision of the TAO Metaversity. Know what you are working towards and how it dovetails with the TAO Metaversity before you come to interview. Know what the TAO Metaversity is about, the history, the intent, the goals, the practices, the essence – the heart. That’s all on the blog. www.taometaversity.wordpress.com. Know why you want to work with the TAO Metaversity, what you can bring, what you want to ask, what you want to know that has not been answered in all the information available. Then – come, being educated as throughly as possible, and tell why the TAO Metaversity would be crazy not to include you. Tell why the TAO Metaversity will be receiving the greatest gift – you.

Tell what you are about and your value and what is necessary for you to be sustained and how All are sustained by including you, your ideas, your classes, your insights, your dreams. Share why all of what you are fits perfectly with what the TAO Metaversity is – because there is no difference. Take your breath away because you have understood the heart of the vision. Leave the TAO Metaversity inspired because you connected into your soul and your passion by recognizing -wholeness. This is the TAO Metaversity.

 This is an opportunity for teachers, students, entrepreneurs, artists, gardeners, administrators, grant writers, marketers, healers, fund raisers, sacred environmentalists, practitioners, to come to a canvas that is still being created. In business language this is the ground floor of rewriting what we feel has been written without us. Bring your brushes, your colors, your music, your ideas, your talents, your heart and connect into a vision that is open and sustainable in many ways. But first – you must educate yourself completely to understand how you can add to the painting being created – how to bring your gift into the TAO Metaversity; to add to the masterpiece that you recognize from a deep inner knowing. You bring yourself, sacrifice nothing by naturally connecting to what makes sense. This is where you can help – by being clear about why you are involved. This is where you can help because you realize why you are born. This is where you can help author education for the 21st century. Then you become an ambassador for the TAO Metaversity as well as an ambassador for what makes sense, what is sustainable, what is supportive and what supports – All.

 This is a vision we have inside of ourselves – that is why we come to the TAO Metaversity. Yes, Wendy is holding the vision. She is committed to write the curriculum to give the foundation to the TAO Metaversity. After that, it is important for all of those who want to help carry this vision to educate themselves about the TAO Metaversity and to ask questions. Exhaust all possible questions that haven’t been answered by the blog, emails, facebook – like a child does.

 This TAO Metaversity is not a university, it is not a college, it is not redressing an old mindset and reselling it as a new idea. Each facet from the curriculum, tuition, accreditation, sustainability, teachings, student body, environment are addressed to usher in a world we are all screaming for.

 So hold on cause Wendy said yes to this invitation from Cam Williams, the Voice for the TAO Metaversity: “I am asking you if you would be willing for your vision to risk becoming a complete and utter idiot in front of the universe. Perhaps to fail miserably? Now that is courage for manifesting of a dream and I say so what if you did, I will love you forever my friend. Hell people will write books about you after you’re dead and gone and we both know we don’t die, so what in the world do we have to lose here except our egos! What we can create is God in movement.”

 Help build this TAO Metaversity that offers many opportunities; the support to help manifest a dream and even the opportunity to be an utter idiot in front of the universe and still be loved by wonderful friends. Participate in rewriting of a system that isn’t working and hasn’t been for a long time.

Living the Miracle,

Wendy Mendenhall

What Matters to Me

 Choosing a Life that Matters

Some day the things we have collected our wealth, our fame, our power Will not matter. Some day what we owe or what we are owed Will not matter. Some day our wins, our losses, and our to-do lists Will not matter. Our grudges and our resentments our frustrations and our jealousies Will not matter.

Whether we are beautiful or brilliant, our gender and our skin color Will not matter.

 So what will matter? What will matter Is not what we have, but what we gave. What will matter Is not what we bought, but what we built. What will matter Is not what we learned, but what we taught. What will matter is not our competence, but our character. What will matter is not our success, but the success of those we helped. What will matter Is our integrity and our compassion, that encouraged and enabled others To have integrity and to be compassionate.

Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident. It’s not a matter of circumstance. It’s a matter of choice. May we choose – each day – to live a Life that Matters ~ Author Unknown ~

 Sent to me from Kelly Russell, as always food for thought and thoughts to share, Thank you, Kelly

What matters to me today is that I look at my life as a cup full.

What matters to me today is that it doesn’t matter where I live but that I love where I am living.

What matters to me today is that I am a best friend to myself and all those I touch today.

What matters to me today is that I pray for direction and follow.

What matters to me today is that when my friends and family think of me they smile.

What matters to me today is that I am peaceful as I make my way through taxes, jobs and tasks.

What matters to me today is that I focus on the good in everyone and believe in global wellness.

Take a moment and think about what matters to you today, take action and be aligned with the wisdom that follows.

You matter to me, share with me what matters for you,

Blessings, Cam
