Diamond Heart Meditation Retreat, July 20-26.

Dear Friend,

Our much-anticipated IIT Living Love Meditation Retreat took place last week. It was a great experience for this happy group (see photos at right). Many thanks to Jenny Lou Linley for organizing this wonderful event. Thanks also to Jonathan Beals for giving healing sessions to each participant, to Laura Harris for leading spiritual yoga and to Alice Charland for teaching Yogananda’s energization exercises every day.

We've been keeping very busy this summer updating our website and our Facebook page, as well as producing a new CD. And there's more to come this fall, so read on!


Our problems and answers lie within us.
Unfortunately they don't come in matched sets.



The Body Elemental: Healing with your Body Elemental

Body Elemental CD cover2

The Body Elemental is a new CD recorded by Tanis Helliwell at Diamond Heart Retreat Centre. It includes two tracks: one with information about your body elemental (everybody has one), and the second is a guided visualization which will help you get in touch with your body elemental to heal yourself.

For a short excerpt from the CD, click on the button below:

new website

If you've been on the International Institute for Transformation website lately, you'll have noticed that it's been through a major overhaul. We wanted to keep up with you, our readers, with a friendlier look and a more intuitively-based organization of the site - all to serve you better.

A big thank you to Carol Sill, who has been working hard on the new look for the last few weeks. What a super job!
