Hawaii Summer Retreat and Teacher Training Module 2

In Pono  – Turning the Wheel of Time

[rev_slider hawaii]


Families Welcome

July 18 – 22, 2014

Join us on the Big Island in a gorgeous setting at Kalani Oceanside Retreat to connect with sacred knowledge and revitalize your heart and mind.

The fire of an active volcano, the ever-changing waters of the blue Pacific and the lush gentle greenness of the island will capture our hearts and minds and provide an unparalleled setting for this five-day retreat and teacher training.

Immersed in the beauty of nature enfolding us, we will reflect on key experiences of our lives learning and practicing an ancient technique from the seers of ancient Mexico called recapitulation. In this process of remembering and integrating, of burning up outdated assumptions about ourselves, we unleash wisdom buried at the core of our life experiences, deepening our knowledge and connection to all around us.

With the practice of The Code of the Seers, energetic movement and breath sequences, we have access to a state of inner freedom that Carlos Castaneda called Turning the Wheel of Time, which means access to new views and perceptions about ourselves and the world around us. The Code is one of the oldest and most surprising practices of the seers of Ancient Mexico that fosters inner strength and carries an inherent purpose to release restrictions and limitations, specifically, in our breathing patterns and in areas of the back, chest and throat.

Regular practice of The Code, as Castaneda told us, leads to a change at the level of what we now call our DNA, and modulates the expression of our genetic information.

The workshop integrates The Code with a deep recapitulation of meaningful life experiences.  Engaging in the practice of a deep recapitulation process, the workshop fosters a profound review and understanding of our assumptions and behaviors, releasing us from restrictive thoughts and attitudes, and cultivating a more fluid body-mind. In this new inner state, you experience Pono, unlimited love and harmony with all of your relationships.  We will return home in alignment with our spirits and with the world, with purpose and daring.

We are currently offering a 15% discount on the workshop to the Being Energy community of practitioners who have attended one previous workshop or online class, if you sign up before April 15, 2014.  The discount is valid even if your payment is only a non-refundable deposit.

The retreat and Teacher Training will be conducted by Dr. Miles Reid, Aerin Alexander, M.S., and Robert Savery, direct apprentices of Carlos Castaneda.

For those interested in the Teacher Training program, there will be a follow up online program for full credit. There is an extra cost of $290 for the teacher training online and graduation. Please contact us

The retreat starts on Friday July 18 at 5:00 pm and ends on Tuesday July 22 at 12:00 noon.

Location: Kalani

The setting features ocean views, balmy breezes, pool, hot tub, sauna, delicious organic meals and more. Kalani is located in a tropical jungle overlooking the spectacular coast, surrounded by diverse flora and fauna (see map).

Being Energy Teacher Training

Join our worldwide community of teachers. The Being Energy® Teacher Training Program is available to anyone interested in learning about health and perception for personal and/or professional use. It is especially well suited to those in the education and healthcare fields, including allopathic medicine, alternative medicine, preventive healthcare, movement and bodywork disciplines, somatic education and counseling.

An educational program aimed at facilitating freedom of movement and perception, Being Energy® builds a bridge between modern science and the tradition of the seers of ancient Mexico. Students learn how to discover and actualize their full potential. This is accomplished through self-knowledge, physical and emotional healing and establishing direct communication with your own energetic being and essence.

A Comprehensive Format

Being Energy’s certified Teacher Training Program is a comprehensive three-year program. It is comprised of three modules, each a year in length, that can be completed in any order. They are:

  • Module 1: The Physical and Energy Body—Learning about your energy resources
  • Module 2: Resetting the Clock: Turning the Wheel of Time – Learning about your life’s experiences through a thorough Recapitulation
  • Module 3: Being in Breath, Being in Dreaming—Learning from your dreams and about your nervous system

Each module begins with a two-day workshop followed by a special three-hour training session and then five monthly online study and practice sessions. The monthly classes consist of weekly online practices and written assignments. Class attendance and completion of assignments is required for certification.

The program also includes post-graduation support. Once you’ve completed one of the modules and graduated from the program, you’ll be able to participate in an internship program wherein you’ll guide daily practices for a minimum of two months. Students find this internship program to be very helpful, enabling them to present their work to their communities and gain direct experience in leading classes.

Module 2 Teacher Training


In Module 2, we embark on a systematic review of our behavior to identify what works for us and what doesn’t. We learn how to discard patterns of movement and thought that block our own realizations and limit our empowerment. We “turn the wheel” of our interpretations, allowing new directions to unfold.

In Carlos Castaneda’s terminology, we learn and understand how to recapitulate our lives. It is through a deep recapitulation that we can make real changes in our behavior and forgive and release anything that binds us.

Specialized movement series will help you enter into a quiet space of self-acknowledgment, and written exercises open the gateway to let unheard parts of yourself speak. You discover how to loosen your grip on the wheel of who you’ve been and turn it to who you can become, which may be much, much greater than what you can imagine!

Module 2 movements and practices include:

  • Sword Form
  • The Code of the Seers of Ancient Mexico
  • Meditation and Visualization of the Heart and Brain
  • Specialized Writing Practices
  • Five Keys of Wellbeing Layer 2 Standing:
    • Purpose
    • Confidence
    • Humbleness
    • Affection
    • Awareness of Death

Please note: It is not necessary to have taken Module 1 before taking Module 2. You may take the modules in any order. Those interested in obtaining a teaching certification have one year after finishing any given module to begin the next, until all three modules are completed.

Origin of Being Energy

The Being Energy Teacher Training Program is based on what Aerin Alexander and Dr. Miles Reid learned and experienced as direct apprentices of Dr. Carlos Castaneda. The training focuses on the following core principles:

  • The Body as Perceiver. We experience the world through our bodies, and our organs and tissues have feelings and store memories.
  • Following a Path with Heart. We can choose to live our lives with our hearts as the driving force.
  • Perceiving Energy. We explore seeing energy as it flows in the universe, and observing and sensing life directly as it happens.

Death as Our Advisor. Death is a great teacher, and we can learn from death to live life more fully, without hesitation, and not take things for granted in our lives.
