Immersion 2017

Are you seeking to take your Sacred Centers learning to a deeper level?

Would you like to experience small, intimate workshops in a beautiful setting?

Do you enjoy gathering with others of like mind and heart, who are on a similar journey?

I recently had the chance to sit down with my long-time friend and colleague, Lion Goodman, P.C.C., to talk about his effective, life-changing techniques for Changing Belief Patterns and in turn, greatly healing and enhancing your life journey! 

Hearing this interview is a MUST for anyone wishing to

take complete control of their life and live on their own terms. Finally!


Every year, during California’s glorious month of May, Sacred Centers holds a very special event for students who want to come together in community and take their personal chakra studies to a deeper, more profound level.

We jokingly coin our Annual Immersions as advances rather than retreats. This is because it is intended not only for students enrolled in our Sacred Centers Certification Program, but also for everyday trainees of this journey we call life! Our Immersions are designed as a way to advance your personal growth, wisdom, and expertise from any level, presenting the chance to lift you upward and onward toward greater gifts and finer explorations of Self.

Our theme this year is on clearing and energizing both the upward and downward current through the chakras. The current of liberation that gets you out of stuck places and limitations, and the current of manifestation that teaches you how to tap into highest consciousness and transform your beliefs to create the reality of your dreams.

The 2017 Immersion will be held on 200 beautiful acres at the Earthrise Retreat Center located on the Institute of Noetic Sciences campus in Petaluma, CA (about 90 minutes north of the San Francisco airport).

This year we are offering 4 workshops, which are only offered at Immersions due to our intent to keep them intimate with limited enrollment. We will also have fresh, morning yoga sessions, special evening entertainment events (TBA), and will join together for delicious gourmet meals!

There will be 2 workshops happening simultaneously, so you’ll have to choose one from each pair. Be sure to register soon as enrollment is limited for each course!

May 22-26: Monday to Friday: Guiding the Journey with Selene Vega or Chakra Therapy 2 with Anodea Judith.

May 27-28: Saturday and Sunday: Change Your Beliefs with Lion Goodman, or Energy Awareness I with Dr. Jacqueline Chan.

This class teaches you how to open or deepen your ability to read and work with the energies of the human system. If you sense energies and want to sharpen and tune your skills for working with them, this workshop is for you. If you have always wanted to experience energies directly, this workshop can open the door to a new world.

Learn how to contact the energies of the human being directly and effectively, and how to improve your accuracy in reading these energies. You will learn how to move directly into your own core so that you unleash your capacities for finding, feeling and moving subtle energies. The course will also show you how to connect deeply while maintaining healthy personal boundaries so you do not “pick up” energies from others. This is must-have self-care for energy healers.

You will learn simple techniques to accomplish the following:

  • Quiet the mind and open your access to subtle energies
  • Create a clear, focused state of mind for working with energies
  • Practice “energy hygiene” by cultivating healthy personal boundaries with others
  • Bring in healing energy for yourself or others in a clean, clear way
  • Take care of yourself in the energy world

Skills are more useful when they come with ideas that help you to think in new ways. You will learn the following concepts:

  • What the body-mind connection is really like
  • How to understand energy anatomy
  • Specific details of chakra anatomy
  • Why we need a new kind of psychology to support healing and transformation

During the workshop, you will participate in group and partner exercises designed to lead you to direct, tangible experiences of the skills that are presented. This is the first workshop in a series of self-development courses that also leads to professional certification in energy healing techniques. This workshop fulfills the Energy Awareness course requirement for the Sacred Centers Certification Program. This class grounds the principle of Energy Healing and the chakras with potent and advanced techniques of clearing, opening, and balancing chakras, as well as energy hygiene for selfprotection and more.

About the Immersion Teachers


Anodea Judith, Ph.D

Anodea Judith, Ph.D has been called “a prophet for our time.” A groundbreaking thought leader who is the founder and director of Sacred Centers, and a writer, therapist, and spiritual teacher. Her passion for the realization of human potential matches her concern for humanity’s impending crises — her fervent wish is that we “wake up in time.” She holds Masters and Doctoral degrees in Psychology and Human Health, is a 500 hour registered yoga teacher (E-RYT), with lifelong studies of psychology, mythology, sociology, history, systems theory, and mystic spirituality. She is considered one of the country’s foremost experts on the combination of chakras and therapeutic issues and on the interpretation of the Chakra System for the Western lifestyle. She teaches across the U.S., as well as in Canada, Europe, Ireland, Asia, and South and Central America.

She is best known for the chakra classic, Wheels of Life: A User’s Guide to the Chakra System, (Llewellyn, 1987, revised 1999), considered the definitive work on the subject, with over 200,000 copies sold in English and additional printings in 15 languages. A second book, co-authored with Selene Vega: The Sevenfold Journey: Reclaiming Mind, Body, and Spirit through the Chakras(Crossing Press, 1993) arose out of the popular Psychology of the Chakras Intensive, taught by Judith and Vega for nearly three decades. Eastern Body, Western Mind: Psychology and the Chakra System as a Path to the Self, released in February 1997, charts childhood development, bioenergetic character structures and Jungian individuation, all within the chakra model. This book is used as a text in universities and healing schools across the country. In March of 2000, she released a six-tape audio course called: The Chakra System: A Complete Course in Self-Diagnosis and Healing followed by the popular boxed multi-media kit: Chakra Balancing, both through Sounds True. Her artistic expression combines with her mystic passion in her award winning DVD, The Illuminated Chakras, a co-creation with her son, artist and animator, Alex Wayne. The Illuminated Chakras, won the best-animation award at the New York Film Festival in 2004.

The Global Heart Awakens, (The Shift Network, July 2013) is a rewrite of the 2007 edition, Waking the Global Heart, which won two literary awards, including a Nautilus Gold. This book charts the history of human development into our present crisis and necessary transformation, with an inspiring message of hope for our future. Released in 2012 and coauthored with Lion Goodman, is Creating on Purpose: The Spiritual Technology of Manifesting Through the Chakras (Sounds True, 2012) teaches people how to bring heaven down to earth through the manifestation process of making change in our lives and our world. The much-anticipated release of Anodea Judith’s Chakra Yoga (Llewellyn, September 2015) replaces her ever-popular and useful Chakra Yoga Teacher Training Manual.

Anodea conducted a private practice for over 20 years, but traveling has taken her healing efforts into the workshop mode, training other therapists in somatic techniques, and conducting healing sessions within the workshop setting.

On the more personal level, Anodea Judith is a dynamic individual with many talents: teacher, healer, writer, priestess, musician, artist, yogini, and co-heart. She is well-loved for her integration of mind, body, and spirit, shoring up the inequalities between masculine and feminine, and her dream of co-creating Heaven on Earth. She feels deeply concerned about the state of our world, in terms of ecology, ethics, politics, and religion. Feeling that individual and cultural transformation are intrinsically related, Anodea supports a path to empowerment and balance through teaching of life-affirming paths of wisdom. This is achieved through reclaiming our bodies, the environment, and our connection to both Heaven and Earth.

She is a dynamic and experienced keynote speaker, workshop presenter, and visionary, dedicated to healing our world and evolving human consciousness.

In 2013, she graduated from the Academy of Intuition Medicine® trained as a Medical Intuitive and remote healer. In 2014 she completed a Transformative Leadership Training; and created a Chakra Doctor Series and Energetic Boundaries Course within a yoga teacher-training program.

What People are Saying About Anodea Judith…

Testimonials_Seane-Corn (1)Huge Influence on Me Personally

Anodea, you have had a huge influence on me personally as a student and the impact it has had on me as a teacher. Your work was instrumental in helping me connect the mind-body in a theoretical way and then apply it to a yoga practice that I had been deeply committed to for years. It dropped in such an embodied way that suddenly for the first time it made sense, and I could do deeper transformational work and get clues and insights into my own psychology just by doing the same asana practice that I do every single day, but tuning in to my body in a different way and using the language of the chakras via your lens, it was very impactful to me. When I first discovered Wheels of Life and Eastern Body Western Mind, it provided me a very safe place and a specific tool to be able to gain the necessary insights to do some very serious healing work [which] allowed me the self confidence and allowed me to trust my intuition that created space for a lot of the service work I do in the world today. I couldn’t have done it without the self-confidence and the tools from Eastern Body Western Mind allowed me to tap in! I want to thank you publicly for being such an influence and a brilliant mentor in my own person life.

—Seane Corn

Gentle, Powerful, and Whole

From Anodea’s training, I feel like I am connecting to myself in a way that is gentle, powerful and whole. Her style is dynamic and enlivening. All the courses are on purpose and leave you feeling complete and compassionate.

—Paula W.


Studying with Anodea Judith

I have always been drawn to the Chakra Model and over my years of teaching I keep coming back to how useful and powerful these centers are for understanding our true selves. Studying with Anodea this summer awoke something in me that has been sleeping for a while. I feel like I have found a teacher and community to help me move forward on my journey and in doing so, I will be better able to help others to become more aware, empowered, and as we all heal, we can bring more love and healing to the world. I plan to use what I learn in my teachings and to share it with others.



Chakra Therapy is Life Changing!

I have found “grounding” and am embarking on furthering “stillness.” The class I took “Chakra Therapy – 5 Day Professional Training” was life changing for me. It is the result of a search for meaning and purpose and the beginning of my true path/journey. I could also give upward of 20 testimonials given what I received from the Sacred Centers Immersion.

—Francesca G.


Anodea is a Master!

Anodea Judith delivers!  She is a Master. If you want to learn how to manage your energy system, to honor your body and your life, sign up! You will get out of this course what you put into to it, so ultimately it’s up to you; however, if you can’t give it your all for whatever life reason, don’t hesitate. The information, meditations and processes go beyond the time frame of the program, so the journey continues beyond the end date. This course is highly recommended.



Invaluable course.

This course was no less than amazing. And so is Anodea Judith. She taught me that much more is possible in this lifetime – more love, more money, more time, more fulfillment in work – despite what your mind tells you. Invaluable course.

—Melissa W.


Utterly transformational!

I have taken several workshops with Anodea over the years, and each of them were utterly transformational, both personally and professionally. Of all of the workshops I have attended over the years from a variety of healers, teachers and shamans, Anodea’s were by far the most impactful. I can’t wait to go again!!

—Theresa Rose


What People are Saying About Selene Vega…

“Guiding the Journey had great impact for me both in terms of personal healing and professional development. Thank you again Selene, I feel truly blessed to have you as my teacher.”
M. Garcia

“I truly enjoyed your openness, your humanness and humbleness, while showing an enormous amount of experience with the material and expressing truth.”

“I learned the tools to deconstruct the powerful trances I’ve experienced and witnessed as led by Selene, and then how to rebuild a trance experience that addresses different themes and intentions. Guiding the Journey leads you into your own journey as metaphor and structure for learning how to create that experience for others. Selene is a master, weaving words, experiences, psychology and movement together as a map for transformation, filling your well as you learn how to guide others.” –Carla McAdams

“The workshop was much more than I had expected. The content was remarkable. It opened up a whole new world for me. I enjoyed the leader, Dr. Selene. She was inspirational. Her depth of knowledge and caring was evident throughout the workshop. Everything about the workshop was engaging and will provide lifelong learning and healing opportunities.” –Geny Hyland

“I have a deeper understanding of the ingredients of a successful workshop. Selene models the very work she is teaching through her skill in creating and developing a sacred space in which personal transformation can gracefully occur.”

“Content was richer than what the class description online offered. Quality of Selene holding space was exceptionally professional, present, grounded—a deep safety to explore, learn and be real was established within the first hours of day 1, and maintained throughout the course. I feel deepened and more present.” –Geffen Rothe

“Many misconceptions about trance were replaced with real information.” –Brad Cassidy

“I appreciated the balance between covering the ‘content’ of the coursework and the ‘content’ of our emotional expression. Both were satisfied by your ability to bring out whatever shows up for us as a result of the trances. The handout will be a valuable takeaway as well as my opened heart.”

“Get ready to relax and go deeper into inner space and return with jewels of self awareness that provide insight and guidance about unconscious parts of you that may be running the show that is your life!”

“The depth of the information is going to be oh, so useful! I recommend this workshop to any practitioner of trance as an anchor in scholarship and experienced application.” –Kathy McKeever

“Selene is a wealth of information and application. I am very glad I came.”

“Every way possible, Selene is a great teacher. I love her style. Selene’s work is special in her gentle approach as a MASTER teacher!”

“Every way possible, Selene is a great teacher. I love her style. Selene’s work is special in her gentle approach as a MASTER teacher!”

“I feel led, mentored, and prepared to engage in my own deepening of practices in preparation for including this form of trance in my meaning-making. Selene is organized yet open and flexible and this holding of paradox creates a blending of ways in which to hear/feel/be in the CONTENT she presents.”

What People are Saying About Jacqueline Susanna Chan, D.O., M.I.M…

A rare doctor

Time with Dr. Chan is worth more than anything you can take home in a bottle.She is a rare doctor who takes you to the Sanctuary of your Soul, where the truth and diagnosis reside. And then the medicine in the bottle has a chance of doing a thorough job! Many Thanks to my favorite Doc.”
—Caroline Muir Author: Tantra Goddess and Tantra, The Art of Conscious Loving and Founder, Divine Feminine Institute for Men and Women

Tremendous amount of knowledge & compassion

Dr. Chan is an extraordinary provider with a tremendous amount of knowledge and compassion. She was the first provider who I felt was really approachable and attentive to all of me: mental, emotional and physical. She was able to tease apart my complicated symptoms, make sense, and deal with them head on. She does not shy away from anything. She was the first provider to recognize that my upbringing had an adverse effect on my health and mental well being. I feel safe, comfortable and cared for by Dr. Chan. Her knowledge and application of conventional and complementary medicine have significantly improved my quality of life. Our work together has been a collaborative effort. She welcomes my input so that we can fine-tune medical plan to maximize my wellbeing. I believe it is our team approach that has made the difference in my life.

Achieving wholeness in our mind, body & spirit

“We are very lucky “privileged” to have Dr. Chan move into our Bay Area Region. For anyone seeking wellness, Dr. Chan uitlizes her expertice in all aspects of achieving wholeness thru her hands on approach of natural gentle manipulation, her knowledge of orthopedic medicine, the albility to spiritually connect with her patients and the ability to prescribe inidividualized homeopathic medicines. Integrative medicine is the perfect summarization of Dr. Chan’s practice. She treats the whole person (mind, body and spirit).

Personally, I was astonished to find out answers to aches and pains that had gone unanswered by traditional medical doctors for over 30 years. I’ve only seen Dr. Chan twice and already she has made a a life changing impact in my life. I would emphatically recommend her to anyone and everyone Who among us could not use direction in achieving wholeness in our mind, body and spirit.”

—Joyce Takeda

Virtually symptom-free

Dr. Chan has a rare ability to combine the hard science of medicine with intuitive, osteopathic cranial manipulation which has resulted in incredible results. She has listened, accurately assessed symptoms, and through working with her I have been virtually symptom-free from dizziness and migraines just for a start! She has diagnosed and corrected health issues which were previously unidentified by other doctors that I had seen for years. She is a fantastic doctor and I would highly recommend working with her!
—Elise Falcone Rankin

Feminine Wisdom

When you first meet Dr. Jacqueline Chan, D.O., you find a genuine kindness and concern. Her smile warms you, like the sun coming out from behind the clouds. You are about to discover she is one of a kind, in the longest human lineage: Women who practice the Healing Arts. Resonant in the Feminine Wisdom traditions of Isis and Cleopatra, Artemisia and Aspasia, to Elizabeth and Emily Blackwell, and Elizabeth Garrett Anderson; Dr. Chan brings a deeply developed and radical intuition of the Mother with the keen yet open intellect of the Scientist, to the practice of Osteopathy. You come to know that few delve deeper, with greater attention to detail in her mastery of innovation in Women’s (and men’s) Health, than Dr. Chan.
—Rev. Anthony S. Wright, MA, CCHT

Trusting this process

I am in awe of what transpired during our session, and why this session happened in the first place! I’m so glad I recorded it so I can use it as a meditation to reinforce the medicine. What you tapped into is so right on. I am so moved that you were guided to offer this session in the way that you did and that I have an opportunity to put into practice receiving in a much deeper way. Thank you so much for your deep generosity, for trusting this process and such astute and acute perception. This was an amazing session, a profound gift. I look forward to reporting some really great unfoldings!”

What People are Saying About Lion Goodman…

You are one of the people I deeply appreciate and honor as great supporters of my evolution. You were the turning point for me. You helped me awaken, and you saw me and believed in me when I was showing up as a shy, confused and sad young woman.  You stuck by me – even when I didn’t treat you with the respect and love you deserved. I honestly don’t know where I’d be without you. I so appreciate your love, knowledge and mentorship. 

~ Sally Hope, Wildheart Revolution, Bozeman, Montana

The last 40 years of my life were tough – a lot of difficulties and very little joy.  I came to the same painful places too often, which left me feeling immense grief, or uncomfortable numbness at best. During the Course, my zest for life began to come back. I am beginning to experience joy and excitement, and to create my life, rather than letting it pass me by.  I look forward to the new bright day that is dawning. I am very grateful to you.

I was amazed at the revelations that followed each class, the power of the group, validation from all the sharing, and my very positive experiences. Your generosity was incredible.  I recommend this class as a great step for making inner shifts to freedom from the chains of old beliefs.  I will continue to use this process as I discover new hidden belief clusters that remain.

~ Kathy D., San Diego, California

The benefits from this course did not stop when the course ended. I use the BCP for myself almost weekly, and I use it with clients regularly. My whole life is shifting. I used to be miserable because of my inner critic. I am much more generous and forgiving of myself. I now live without the constant judgment and feeling bad about everything. I am cheerful more often, including at home. My family has noticed the difference. I am taking steps that I just couldn’t before and now it seems natural. My heart swells instead of hides and shrivels. That is the best outcome for me because it allows me to move forward. This work is real. It creates positive change. It’s beautiful. Thank you, Lion.

There’s something about this process that has made it much easier to let underlying beliefs float to the surface where I can see them for what they are. They seem like separate entities that I can address respectfully, rather than shameful things to avoid.

~  B.L., Paducah, Kentucky

This belief course was exactly what I’ve been searching for but couldn’t quite find. It’s been liberating and enlightening to be able to finally uncover and discover the blocks and beliefs that have been problematic, worrisome, stressful and hindering in many aspects and areas of my life. I appreciate that this is something I can continue to practice on my own, and get excellent results! Thank you!  

~ Janna Ekstrom, Bend, Oregon

One of my favorite aspects of the course was witnessing people releasing negative beliefs about themselves. You can actually hear changes in their voice – they sound lighter, and laugh and giggle like little kids! It’s been amazing and inspirational to hold that sacred space for each other, and to listen to Lion work. In one call we helped the person create a new belief that he is joyful and it’s safe for his little boy self to come out and play. I have LOVED this class, and have gotten so much out of it.
