Testimonial: In the Illumination Training, I learned practical tools to process in my daily life so that I don’t carry the wounds from the painful challenges with me. I learned how to get in touch with my emotions that were holding me back and release the bonds of my mind that caused the pain to form. I have recommitted and deepened my devotion to my chosen spiritual path. It has been six weeks since the training, and I have more momentum and passion to continue on my new journey than ever before. I feel lighter and happier since I learned how to step into my True Self!” anonymous

Source Seminar Summer 2017 Dates

All Source Seminar trainings are held at our Idyllwild Private Inshallah Retreat Center

Illumination: November 12th-18th 2017

Source Journey:  December 3rd-9th 2017


Testimonial:   “By going thru this seminar, I feel as if I have come across the answers to all my prayers…..My journey ends where this line of study begins. And its not really a study, a religion, or even a ‘spiritual practice’, as I am used to these being times set apart to do something like a ritual, or meditation, or exercises. No this is beyond all that. It is a doable method of disciplining my mind to stop torturing me!  So if you too are beset with your own thoughts which take up all your attention, and then would like to make them STOP so you can enjoy life, …. have I caught your attention??  I hope so…. Thank you Michael Singer, author of the book ‘The Untethered Soul”  and thank you so much to the ones who expanded on that book to create a course that sings of freedom and joy, Kanta and Dennis. Again, just amazing cutting edge info and methods presented to anyone who wishes to feel real change, without doing anything really but read the book and practice its wisdom. It is something you won’t want to overlook. Happiness is so much easier to achieve now. So thank you to all my compadres, my teachers, my God, who made this leg of the journey thru life so much the richer.” Michelle Mann

Testimonial:  “Since Illumination, I have made a real commitment to deepen my spiritual life and to engage in daily spiritual practices that allow me to meet this goal. I have experienced the beginnings of a transformation of my Self and recognize that it is only the beginning. I am experiencing a deeper understanding of things that I “knew” or became aware of in the past that is allowing me to begin to move past the “beliefs” that I allowed to limit me in the past. I have such a greater awareness of the presence of God in my life and who I truly am – my Soul and not my PS. I can feel an opening of my heart to where I am experiencing the Joy that is my destiny. Weekly I am recognizing seemingly little beliefs or conditions that my PS had constructed to limit my ability to experience Joy and Love. I am awake to those false beliefs and conditions and am choosing to not give them energy. Instead I am giving energy to the awakening Joy and Love that is filling my soul. This is something that I could not have achieved alone. The experience of Source, with Kanta and Dennis as guides and with my compadres as witnesses, teachers, and cohorts has catapulted my awakening and my spiritual life. I feel such gratitude for the week that I spent in Illumination and for the continued support and work of my buddy and compadres. It has been the best gift that I have given myself and my family.” Deborah Tweit

Testimonial:  “When the November session of Source Illumination was offered, I felt it would be a good assist to achieve a little more balance in my life and provide a boost in strengthening my spiritual practice.  Not only did it deliver as hoped on both fronts – it was off the charts in terms of concrete results. It is customary for grads of each Source program to follow up with buddies, communicate with all the participants regularly, and keep themselves accountable for commitments they individually have made. Illumination takes it a step further with daily tangible techniques to get us through the rough spots. There is a strong peace of mind that accompanies me as I proceed through my day, directly attributable to things I learned at this training. When I slip a little as we humans are apt to do….there is no “beating myself up”. There is acknowledgement of what transpired, any emotional responses are processed, we observe the situation and move on, with the comfort of knowing we are doing the best we can with our egos. Staying in our “Higher Self” as much as possible we cultivate the seeds for a life that is much more aligned with God than ever before.” Bobbi Lona
