2015 Karma and Reincarnation Workshop (S)!

Karma and Reincarnation Workshop

With Jacqueline Valdez

Saturday, Febraury 28th, 10:00am-4:00pm $80.

That’s your karma! You’ll get yours! He seems straight from the animal kingdom!

This workshop is designed to create an understanding of the way karma and reincarnation are traditionally taught by the Yogi’s. This may differ from what you may have thought of before. Karma has nothing to do with reward and punishment, it feels like it though, right? Reincarnation isn’t something that happens randomly, it is forever synchronized with karma.

We will laugh, as well as do deep work looking into your past to discover where you may have inherited your love of the piano, while the rest of your relatives have no interest in music. We will learn through the teachings of the Vedas or the Yogic tradition that reincarnation is not about choosing our next life or choosing what we want to learn or even choosing who we want to learn it with. The great Yogi’s who brought us these teaching, say that our lives are the result of all the choices we have made throughout time, whether consciously or unconsciously. This creates a whole new way of looking at these ideas.

The great laws of karma and reincarnation are forever synchronized. Light vegetarian snacks and water are provided.

Lunch is up to you. You may brown bag it or you may want to try one of the wonderful local restaurants.


I look forward to being with you.
Peace be with you, Namaste.

The Beautiful Science of Silence

Save the Date! Saturday, June 21st, 2014


Are you frustrated by too much mind pounding and heart chattering?

Are you surrounded by cars screaming, animals talking, bosses hissing and children barking?

Is your world a little crazy with noise?

Well then… Jacqueline Valdez cordially invites you to a mini spa day for your heart and mind. We will indulge in slices of decadent silence topped with cooling waves of peace. We’ll dip our hearts in refreshing moments of renewal. We’ll slough off the old memories and scrub your intuition sparkling clean. You’ll even take home a goodie bag filled with techniques to continue your spa experience upon re-entry to the world of noise. Kindly join us for a couple of hours of sweet company, quiet healing moments and practical methods to continue your experience in the comfort of your own world. You know you want it. Come and celebrate the silence of your heart this summer.

Word of the Month: Purity



Virtue is Purity

Saboteur is Contamination

A pure heart is strong and kind.


Purity of heart reflects purity in character, much like the source of water determines the quality of life. If water is polluted, all who drink the water are prone to contamination. It is difficult to know if water is contaminated merely by looking at it, so we have developed research to test the water. Likewise, it can be difficult to know the quality of the results of our actions without self inquiry. Self inquiry is a deep investigation of our motives in life. The Yogi’s teach us that our emotions determine our intentions, and our intentions can be unknown to us, just like the microbes that are unseen in our drinking water. It seems that our thoughts and actions are only as pure as the emotional intentions behind them.

Whenever we’re in a disagreement it is normal to feel that the other person doesn’t have clear motives. It’s normal to feel we do, of course. Normal and natural aren’t always the same thing. Normal just means that “most people do it this way.” Normalcy can be bad for us. It’s normal to be stressed out, but it isn’t natural. What’s natural is good for us, what’s normal doesn’t have to be good for us. It may be normal to have bad drinking water, but it certainly isn’t natural. Natural spring water is clear and good tasting. It nourishes us and keeps us clean from the inside out. Normal city water with all its runoff from daily life isn’t good for us. Therefore, we have to treat it, to make it as good as natural water.

Word of the Month: Love


Virtue is  Love

Saboteur is Desire

Love is the answer to everything.


Love is the reason for everything, and so, we wonder why we have pain in the world. We say, there can’t be a God, because the evidence of pain makes that true. But pain is the source of compassion. It is the reason we are able to experience healing. Love is healing, it is also the process. Love comforts pain, it laughs when the lost is found. Love weeps for those who seem forgotten, it awakens and renews. Love’s life partner is pain. The two are entwined throughout eternity. Pain knows love and teaches us to never let go of love. Pain reminds us that we have taken one step too far away from the warmth of the light of love, and stepped into the shadow, where pain resides.

Love is always hidden in plain sight. It’s always there. When your heart is taut and hard because of someone’s words, love is present and well hidden. When you feel you must teach them how it feels, and you hurt those who have hurt you, your heart will remind you that love was always present, but you forgot to choose it. Choosing love saves, choosing pain delays. The pleasure of love is always a choice away.
