Welcome to the journey of your life!

The Power of Awareness and Yoga Retreat at Elohee in North Georgia,  TBD for 2020 due to Covid-19 

“You’ve been called here to expand the awareness of your Soul, and to be all that you can be in this incarnation. It is time for your Truth to be remembered, experienced and integrated—now.” Laina

 

The Power of Awareness (POA) and Yoga Retreat is designed to offer seekers of Truth a comprehensive roadmap of the spiritual journey everyone must travel, from conception to enlightenment. Whether you are at the beginning of your journey, or you’ve been an avid participant for years, or even decades, during the POA Retreat everything you know about life and spirituality will finally come together. Once this happens, your entire life’s journey will finally begin to make perfect sense, empowering you with the profound ability to make the most important choice of your life: Awaken your Magnificence!

The POA Retreat is intuitively formatted as it invites each participant on an individual journey within, where information will lead you to transformation and ultimately to the liberation of the magnificence that lies in waiting within our very core.  The Power of Awareness will gradually reveal the natural process through which we come to remember our innate alignment with Source, by offering a simple to understand yet in-depth overview of the distinct differences between our humanity and our divinity: between our head and our heart, our ego and our Soul. Simply put, the POA program will make it very clear not only how, but why, your entire life is always a choice between Love and fear, whether you are conscious of it or not.

 

“What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.” Abraham Maslow

The Power of Awareness Retreat is designed to offer all participants, regardless of cultural, religious or spiritual backgrounds, an in-depth overview of the process by which all humans became conditioned, programmed if you will, to forget our innate and natural connection with our Divine Creative Source, which goes by many names. This conditioning solidifies our egoic identity, which has us believe, and act as if, we are separate from each other. The human ego is the source of all fears and all human suffering. During The POA Retreat you will also become intimately Aware of your Divine Essence, as we take an in-depth journey into our Soul, or Spirit, which is the Source of all Love, Compassion and Infinite Bliss. 

Upon completion of this workshop you will become aware of:

G

Infinite wisdom that is available to those who choose to Awaken

G

Creative energy that will activate a deeper sense of aliveness and wellbeing

G

The profoundly different, and opposing belief systems, of your head/fear and your heart/love

G

How, and why, you have come to believe what you believe, and how it limits or frees you

G

That your birthright is to experience never-ending love, joy and inner peace

G

How your beliefs have limited your access to greater abundance, wellness, and deeply connected relationships

G

Discern between your heart’s desires and your perceived responsibilities

G

The distinction between Divine Unconditional Love and Human egoic love

G

Awakening requires that you become intimately aware of the distinctions between your ego and your Soul/Spirit

POA will assist you in recognizing that all you are asked to give up, in order to Awaken your Magnificence, are your old stories, limiting & dis-empowering beliefs and habitual patterns that no longer serve you and only sabotage your bliss. In return, you will experience more energy, more creativity, more love, joy, and indescribable inner peace…because life is meant to be FUN and EASY!

During this profoundly deep and simple to follow POA journey, not only will you discover that there is nothing wrong with you, but you will actually become aware that who you truly are is whole, perfect and exquisitely magnificent!

 

The POA weekend workshop hours are as follows:

Thursday: Check in between 9:00 and 10:00 am.

Workshop times are 10:30 am to 10:00 pm

Friday: 10:00 am to 9:00 pm

Pre-register to reserve your spot with a $250 deposit. For any additional questions, please email Laina@Lainaorlando.com

 

Attending with a curious mind and an open heart, is crucial in order to expand your self-awareness. Believing that there is a loving and intelligent Source, greater than us, is necessary for anyone to fully benefit from their POA experience. The wisdom within POA is layered, and for this reason we encourage all POA participants to return, as often as they can to assist in future workshops, for a minimal registration cost, to experience the full depth of the message contained within the entire POA experience. Please keep in mind that although Laina received this workshop to teach in 2007, through Divine Inspiration, the material is consistent with the teachings of A Course In Miracles and will be often mentioned during The Power of Awareness Retreat.

What our Student’s say about The Power of Awareness!

“This adventure was life changing for me! I discovered more about myself in 4 days than I thought I knew all of my life. The Power of Awareness truly set me free of limiting behavior so that I can live my life to the fullest from now on! I can't thank you enough!” ~AD

9

“Having experienced and led many seminars I would highly recommend POA to everyone! It provided a peaceful transformation from the pain of the past to an intoxicating, delightful adventure into knowing my truest potential! From this place of awareness has come a love affair with my truest self. Brilliant!” ~SL

9

“First, through The Power of Awareness workshop and then through coaching, Laina has helped me work through some incredibly challenging things in a surprisingly short period of time. I'm tempted to call her magical. But the truth is, she is highly skilled and deeply anointed to do the self-awareness coaching work she does. She uses spiritual intuition to ask powerful questions that go directly to the heart of the things that matter. And she fearlessly guides you to years of fear-based thinking until you discover the truth. I am grateful for her wisdom and compassion. I wish I found her 10 years ago.” ~TH

9

“WOW! What a wakeup call to everything I already knew but just wasn’t conscious of! I was able to delve deep inside and feel emotions that my ego had suppressed for me for so long. It scared me to revisit those emotions but once I did, with Laina’s gentle guidance, I was able to release them. Now I see the absurdity of holding on to them and have taken my power back! Hell yeah! POA was a transformational experience!” ~MM

9

“The Power of Awareness was very powerful and exactly what I needed, to take the steps to make my life magnificent and fun for me and my boys. I was living life as a victim and not using the power that God has given me to be a strong woman. I learned to quit telling my story, because whatever “story” I was telling was the past, and the past only exists as a memory. I learned to move on with my life. Thank you, Laina, for taking the time and making the choice to make this your life work. Thank you.” ~BB

9

“Laina is my spiritual chiropractor! In The Power of Awareness workshop I confronted my ego! This workshop was life changing because I learned how my mind works, the purpose of emotions and why I have resisted change my whole life. I discovered that although I have been blaming others for all the things I don’t like about my life; I had actually been creating my entire reality all along. This workshop was magnificent. Now I want to live in a conscious state so that I can be the embodiment of the perfect radiance that was awakened within me.” ~MF

“Laina, I want to thank you for the POA weekend – what a powerful experience! I have done other workshops, yet I found a big difference in this one. The POA course offers a visceral connection to the source of transformation. It is simple, yet profound. To take in and apply the principles is truly life-changing. One unexpected result I have had is weight loss. I have struggled for years with extra pounds and found that after the POA the weight is melting away easily. Also, I have more peace in my life. I am able to identify and release judgments of myself and others more quickly. I think the key to the effectiveness of the training is the experiential nature of the instruction. I learned so much, not only from participating, but also from watching others in the group go through their experiences. Thanks again and keep doing what you are doing! The world needs your light.” ~PS

“Laina, you are brilliant and masterful at leading the Power of Awareness workshop! It is a tremendously powerful program...lots of experiential exercises. I enjoyed countless breakthroughs myself, as was also apparent by the bright eyes of transformation of all the other participants. POA was so well-worth it!” ~MA, Author of "The Power of Inner Choice

9

“Through my many career and life successes, I’ve never experienced as many AHA’s, nor with the intensity I did, as during my POA experience. To address my fears and grow is a life altering experience……POA was as divine as I am meant to be!” ~LC

9

“Laina, thank you so much! I want to learn as much as I can so I can help you spread this amazing message to EVERYONE! POA has given me the chance to do what I really want to do and make my life what I want it to be. I now know that I can learn from every experience, even a negative one, and turn it into something positive in my life. I learned that I can love myself and love my life. POA was an awakening, eye-opening, life-altering change of mindset to lift my spirit. It’s a new way of living that will let me have inner peace. The power and the awareness you allow yourself to receive will transform you and your entire world!” ~JS 21 years old

9

“POA gave me the opportunity to admit that I was living in a self-made drama. I clearly saw how I was blaming others for my current life situation and that if I want to have a great life with fulfilled dreams, I must believe, without opposition, that I can have it. I got that it is not only acceptable to believe in yourself, it is MANDATORY.” ~CH

9

“One word - amazing! As a fellow trainer of this same type of teaching, I took Laina's workshop as a "peer review"; however, I got so much more than I expected! The Power of Awareness 4-Day workshop was truly enlightening - particularly, the exercises...they were very revealing and helped deepen my understanding of my true self. I'd recommend anyone looking to drastically shift their life from ordinary to EXTRAordinary take the POA workshop - RIGHT NOW!” ~AT

9

“I now understand how I could have attended all of the self-empowerment seminars that I have and was still not living my authentic life. Laina, thanks for helping me get out of my head! POA is an intense 4-day seminar with various people in various stages of growth and development, but Laina met each of us exactly where we were. Her main course of action was to reunite us with your authentic spirit. I’m eternally grateful!” ~Amber C

9

“I am feeling free and empowered. A lot of “A HA” moments and the reinforcement to make simple decisions as I become more aware. I was pushed to a higher level of consciousness and was amazed at my own level of understanding and willingness to find truth and connect with others on a deeper level. I love you Laina. POA is a great exercise for the mind and body and soul. UNBELEIVABLE!!!” ~YY

9

“Thank you Laina! How do you put into words an experience that happens so deep in your heart? The power of Awareness opened my mind and heart. Thank you!” ~JJ

9

“The visualizations were fabulous….you taught the course with a loving spirit and you were gentle with the TRUTH. Laina, I can tell you love what you do. I cannot thank you enough for the valuable tools you’ve shared with me.” — FF

9

“As a therapist, Life Coach, and longtime Spiritual Teacher and Seeker, I respected the POA work, but wasn’t expecting to gain much from my course experience. However, I DID! I faced some of my deepest held fears in a safe and inviting way that resulted in a breakthrough, which has given me a freedom beyond anything that I expect and actually gave birth to my next project!” ~MC

9

“Because The Power of Awareness 4-Day workshop was so engaging, provocative and designed to stimulate me into recognizing my fears and limitations, I learned to step away from them and start creating the life I was born for. I have been able to fully strip away the lingering fears and doubts that kept me straddling the fence. I now have the courage to move full speed ahead and know that God is with me every step of the way waiting to crown me with my glory. POA provided the insight and support I needed to clearly and consciously step into sometimes scary unknown, and to do so with expectancy of greatness and with confidence. WOW, Laina!” ~KW

“So, what did I get out of the Power of Awareness 4-Day workshop? Experiential exercises, insights, and transformation way beyond my high expectations… I got who I am. I am powerful! I am spirit in human form. Spirit is in me. I am spirit and spirit is I. I am Light and I bring light to the world. I love beauty. I am beauty. I see the beauty in others. I am connected to each and every one on this planet and to nature. I am love, and I am loved. I am a precious child. Powerful. Compassionate, even for the smallest living thing. I am possibility… pure possibility…the possibility of possibility. I am passion! I live my life with passion and adventure. Doing what I love. Living my purpose and living it with childlike eyes of wonder. I got my purpose. My purpose is to be happy. When I am happy, my mission to travel the world making a difference is magnified to a whole new level! I got that I choose whether I will come from my head or from my heart. I replaced anger with compassion. Before the seminar, I was coming from my head and finding everything that was wrong with my fiancé. After the seminar, I choose to come from my heart. From that place I see a different man, an amazing man with a wonderful heart. I now experience love and gratitude, and so does he. Our relationship is transformed. I am alive. I am awake. I am present to my dreams. I will do great things. The world will not be the same. Wow! Thank you, Laina!” ~WL
