Mastering Your Mental Experience Retreat

Many people in the world have a belief in a Supreme Deity. The desire for the divine and the promises it holds for many involves a large divergence in neurological processes and behaviors from ones upbringing or surrounding environment. Many people will adhere to particular doctrines, prayers, supplications and other religious practices; others have a strong sense that they are part of a greater universal experience. However, no matter what the experience; all religious and spiritual paths are mediated by the brain. This one day retreat was created to help enhance your thoughts through the understanding of how the mind works and how you can master it; your mentality can create your reality.

7AM — Breakfast

* Fruits and juices made to awaken/brighten spirit and energize the mind, along with a serving of banana, dates & nuts smoothie. Coconut water at leasure throughout the day.

* BANANA – The vitamins, minerals and amino acids in bananas play a role in keeping your brain functioning at its optimal level. Bananas help overcome depression due to high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin — the happy-mood brain neurotransmitter. Bananas supply potassium to the brain, helping to keep oxygen levels normalized and also promoting strong signals between cells.

* NUTS – Any type of nut or seed you can think of, are good for your brain. Nuts and seeds are full of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, as well as folate, vitamin E, and vitamin B6. All of these nutrients allow you to think more clearly. They also help you think more positively, because Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids work as natural antidepressants. Some seeds and nuts are also full of thiamine and magnesium, which are great for memory, cognitive function, and brain nourishment.

* DATES – Dates contain a brain booster. Each little date contains over two milligrams of choline, a B vitamin that’s a component in acetylcholine, the memory neurotransmitter. Higher choline intake is associated with better memory and learning, making it a key nutrient for children and older adults at risk for Alzheimer’s.

* PURE COCONUT WATER – Helps Keep You Hydrated . Coconut supports immune system function by helping the body to defend itself against a slew of viruses and bacteria. Its greatest role supports brain function, keeping it healthy and thriving into our golden years. The coconut tree, coconut palm is the Tree of Life. and with good reason. The best water to drink is pure coconut water never processed. It is an excellent, super hydrating alternative to water because of its high electrolyte content, the minerals vital for bodily functions such as muscle movement, brain operation and nerve transmission.

8AM — Guided Meditation – Morning Salutation

Guided meditations help you to achieve a state of deep inner stillness, so that your mind can be cleared of clutter and unwanted thoughts, and then filled with vivid visualization experiences that effect positive personal changes.

8:30AM — Morning Yoga by Fabienne Claude
A certified and insured yoga instructor; Goal is to guide people in a powerful stress relief practice using graceful flows and attention to breath; the release of mind clutter through guided intention settings. Will lead individuals towards a degree level of physical endurance while implying mind and stress healing techniques through the connection of the mind, body, and spirit.

9:30AM — Energy Exchange (meet and interact with all the participants)

10AM — Demonstration and sampling of herbs and roots

by Neuropsychologist Dr. Jeheudi Mes Onyemachi Vuai

This will explore issues that will address the following: What is the brain? What is the mind? What is spirituality? Is there a “God spot in the brain? What is meant by “spiritual” experiences? What is the soul? These and other questions will be addressed to help individuals find answers that will promote their own personal experiences. The lecture will be composed of two distinct components as follows: Part I will cover the basics of neuroanatomy that will lay the foundation of the topic. . Part II will discuss the seven circuits of the brain and how spiritual experiences are produced by a complex network of brain networks. It will also discuss how the “mind” is produced by the brain.

Jeheudi Mes Onyemachi Vuai is adjunct professor of Counseling and School Psychology at Barry University. He works in the Division of Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injury, Department of Psychological Services for the Miami-Dade Public Schools. He is both a neuropsychologist and school psychologist and holds the Diplomate in School Neuropsychology from the American Board of School Neuropsychology. He is current President of the Dade Association of School Psychologists. He is author of books “Gray Matter Matters: Reflections on Child Brain Injury and Erroneous Educational Practices” (2012); and “Misbehaving Brains: Essays on Good Children who do Bad Things in School” (in press, 2014). He has trained approximately 60 psychology students, many of whom pursued degrees in medicine and neuropsychology.

12PM — Full meal nutritional food served

12:45PM — Chi Gong – By Jonathan Moore of Lotus In Hand Therapy

Rewire your brain with Qigong. Qi Gong gives the student an inner awareness of their mental nervous system with simple, natural, and easy-to-learn exercises that have a profound effect on mental health. Breath control combined with our movements increase the sensation, and ultimately give the student control over their bodies in ways they never thought.

by Neuropsychologist Dr. Jeheudi Mes Onyemachi Vuai

2:30PM — Chakra Healing – Mantra/Meditation/Mind Over Matter Affirmations

Meditation is a workout for your mind and spirit. Chakra healing from meditation can result in greater self-compassion and self-love, which will then allow you to push forward in the mind healing process. The ultimate goal is to raise the kundalini energy from the base of your spine out through the crown of your head. It is an amazing blast of pure white energy that channels up from the earth, shoots along your spine and connects you to the universal heavens.

3PM — Breakthrough Group Discussion

4PM — Leave with sponsored nutritional items, alkaline water, and gifts
Go Green Fashionista and Mother Earths Healing

Naturally alkaline water contains the alkaline minerals the body needs to combat acidity. Alkaline water contributes to an alkaline body which is as it should be. The consumption of alkaline water improves the immunity of the person and prevents a person from chronic cellular dehydration.

Celebrate Cultural Diversity On St. Patrick’s Day With El Portal Community Festival
Miami is all about cultural diversity. So it is fitting that on St. Patrick’s Day, a day to celebrate cultural heritage, the Village of El Portal will celebrate multiculturalism with a free community festival. On March 17, 2012, the Village welcomes St. Patrick’s Day with an all-ages, free community festival featuring music, food and entertainment, including Japanese Taiko drumming, Afro-Cuban, gospel and Irish music, local talent in marching bands, and learning about native flora and fauna, taking a buggy or canoe ride among many other activities. To keep in the spirit of community, it will be free for patrons, vendors, and exhibitors.

Presented by Community Arts and Culture (‘CAC”) the festival “Elements of Culture: Inheritants” is focused on the cultural, historical and artistic legacy of El Portal residents and surrounding community, as well as creating an appreciation and care for the stunning surrounding natural environment. “We chose a variety of professional artists of different cultural backgrounds to celebrate the diverse community that resides in El Portal,” said Renee Chavez, CAC project coordinator. “We chose this Village for the native history and heritage, and to honor this special urban location.”

The festival kicks off March 17, 2012 with the debut of the Miami Collective Marching Ensemble, featuring a parade with the kids from Horace Mann middle school and the Barnyard Afterschool program. The parade will commence at N.E. 86th Street and NE 2nd Avenue and will include a Japanese Lion Dancer, a New Orleans Mardi Gras style Second Line, and dancers from Horace Mann Middle School. The fun continues at the Horace Middle School Athletic Field (8950 NW 2nd Avenue) where performances will include traditional Japanese Taiko drumming by Fushu Daiko, a collaborative performance between adults and children led by Afro Cuban Dancer Marisol Blanco with the support of Cuban Son Duo Cortadito, Hoops So Fly performers, Steven English Gospel, McLanzon Fiddlers and the Breffni Academy of Irish Dance.

The festival is made possible by the generous support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, the Cultural Affairs Council, and the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners, the Office of Commissioner Audrey Edmonson, the Urban Paradise Guild, the Village of El Portal and the El Portal Architecture Landscape and Environment Committee.
