Learn How to Release All Your Anxieties and Fears By Unlocking the Doors to Your Past

Dr. Brian Weiss astonished the world of psychiatry with the theories of past-life regression therapy detailed in his best-selling book, Many Lives, Many Masters. Brian is the nation’s foremost expert in this field. This highly experiential intensive workshop explores the latest in hypnotic regression therapy. When we discuss what happens before we are born and after we die—and our possible future lives—we awaken from the constrictions of our past conditioning to release anxieties and fears. 

In a series of large and small group past life regression exercises, healing visualizations and right brain training, this exciting experiential workshop takes you on an incredible psychospiritual journey as you explore the limitless boundaries of the mind and soul. 

During the 12 hours, you will have an opportunity to: 
• Discover extraordinary details about your past
• Release old phobias and fears from prior lifetimes
• Practice revolutionary healing visualizations and meditations
• Harness the power of love and understanding to transform your life
• Understand about your soul mates and soul companions
• Discover new tools for developing your intuition and psychic abilities

Ports of Call & Cruising Highlights
Seattle, Washington – The Emerald City of the Pacific Northwest, this city’s stately skyline sparkles against a backdrop of inland seas and snowcapped mountains. Shop glittering downtown, the bustling Farmers’ Market, historic Pioneer Square, or see it all from the top of the Space Needle. 

Scenic Cruising Tracy Arm, Alaska – This narrow, 26-mile-long fjord is another of Alaska’s most dramatic glacier settings. The lush rain forest recedes to reveal a stunning canyon of bare rock. The panorama of 7,000-foot mountain peaks and nearly vertical rock cliffs is astounding. Waterfalls appear at every turn. Icebergs make their way to the sea in all sorts of wondrous shapes. And tucked away at the end of this remarkable waterway are two very active reminders of the Ice Age - the twin Sawyer Glaciers, calving icebergs into the jade-colored inland sea. Kittiwakes, mountain goats and seals are a common sight. Whales and bears may even make an appearance in this magical place.

Juneau, Alaska – When a drifter named Joe Juneau picked up the first Alaska gold nugget out of Gold Creek in 1880, he could hardly imagine that his name would be affixed to a state capital. Fronting on the blue waters of the Gastineau Channel and surrounded by the stunning backdrop of Mt. Juneau and the Tongass National Forest wilderness, its visual drama never fails to stir visitors. Visit the stately Governor’s Mansion, saunter through the swinging doors of the Red Dog Saloon, or sightsee the mighty Mendenhall Glacier, just outside town. 

Sitka, Alaska – For 100 years, this charming port city reigned as the capital of Russian America. Today the influence of the Czars is still very present in the majestic St. Michael’s Cathedral and the Sheldon Jackson Museum, housing prized Russian and Indian artifacts.Ketchikan, Alaska – This waterfront town built on trestles, docks and pilings looks like it has been plucked from a storybook about frontier life. Explore historic Creek Street, now a covey of contemporary art galleries and quaint boutiques. Meet the spirits of the raven, whale and eagle as you view the largest collection of totems in the world at Totem Bight Park. 

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada – Victoria is known as “The City of Gardens” and is the most English city outside of England, featuring a beautiful harbor, historic museums, and the world-famous Butchart Gardens. The city’s British colonial heritage is still very much in evidence, but contemporary Victoria has a distinctly Pacific Northwest flavor. Victoria’s unique character is deeply rooted in its 150-year history — a history full of colorful people and fascinating tales. 

Join Brian Weiss as he opens unexpected doors into the astonishing realm of past-life regression, while he guides participants through the process, step by step!

Holland America Line

My sister-in-law Heather sent me an email last year from the Volendam while cruising with Holland America.  She enjoyed a cruise to Alaska and loved every minute sailing and enjoying all the wonderful excursions.  She witnessed about 60 dolphins all racing towards the ship, leaping in and out of the swells, from the comfort of her balcony.

Brother-in-law Stanley sent me this update once they had disembarked so I’m sharing it with you. 

We are on our way home from an incredible trip, a must for those interested in scenery, relaxation & adventure. The ship was the Volendam with 1200 passengers and about 500 crew±   Superb food, perfect accommodation and wonderful shore excursions, there was so much to do on board, huge gym and spa, 5 or six lounges ; classical, piano, disco, shows every night, karaoke, a library, casino, internet cafe, card room and scrabble table. We cruised the inside passage,  so often close to shore, spectacular scenery and perfect weather; Food was plentiful and of a very high caliber, we enjoyed the buffet,  along with upscale dining venues for a slight up charge:

The shore excursions were fun, a helicopter ride to a glacier and a walk on the glacier with spiked boots, a bus ride into the Yukon for a canoe paddle and a 1 hour horse ride, the last one was a float plane to a salmon hatchery to see black bears feeding on salmon a bit scary ( we were very close) but great:   The international crew were efficient and extremely pleasant.

All in all a trip I would recommend to every one. BTW  everyday there was a yoga class, pilates and a classes on cooking, correct eating and a computer course, so plenty to do;

Just a footnote the embarkation and disembarkation was so organized that it was quicker than going to the airport!

This got me thinking… where’s the deals so we can cruise too…

Imagine standing on your private verandah and watching whales breach and eagles soar. Imagine being among the lucky few to spend a whole day in Glacier Bay National Park.
