The 2016 Transformational Shift Conference was an absolute adventure of the merging multidimensions & an experience of true expansion in truth, transparency & the joy of bridging heaven to Earth.   Tara, Jamaica.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart Tolec for... putting  together a spectacular conference… for this newly awakening soul.  As a result, a lot of us are going back to our homes enlightened & more knowledgeable.  I go home with a great deal of joy in my heart and resolve to do my part in this great awakening & transformation of humanity.  ~ Annette, Oregon
The Transformational Shift Conference was an experience that was unforgettable.  The speakers were amazing, informative and the event was very interpersonal.  The information provided was fantastic & I would definitely recommend this conference to anyone that wants to 
improve their personal life.
~  Dan & Cherie, New South Wales, Australia.
I felt an extraordinary level of family recognition and love, the energetic glow of sacred space, the reverent respect for our unseen star being family that was there with us and a deep thirst for what was being revealed.   I felt the truth that each attendee made a contribution to the collective Transformational Shift experience.

I experienced lasting hope for the times we are in now and to come, a deep calm that I can relax into, an acceptance of my being as I am and the added gift of conference friendships that continue on now that I am home. 
 ~ Rosemary, Montana.
The Transformational Shift Conference was a profound experience for me.  I was able to get confirmations for experiences I personally was having.  The speakers and the people attending the conference were beautiful souls and very helpful.  I would attend another conference just to learn more information.
 Dawn, Pennsylvania.
Excellent Conference with a wonderful diversity of presenters and topics related to humanity’s ‘Transformational Shift.’ Additionally, I really enjoyed the venue and attendees!  It felt like coming home to family!  Thank you Tolec, for putting together a wonderful experience! I’m looking forward to your next event!

The 2016 Transformational Shift Conference truly lived up to it's name. I am forever changed and for the better! The connections I made with people are lifelong and the experiences I had are forever treasures. There were so many great moments it's hard to put in a couple of sentences. The heart connections, the information, the lessons, the content..... the immediate sense of 'belonging' in a room full of strangers..... the respect for one another from varied backgrounds and histories, WOW!  And the unexpected sense of community and camaraderie.... I'm sooo grateful!   One attendee from Italy via Seattle via LA asked me if I talked about this stuff with my family and I just laughed... yeah right, I said, but here, here was my family, star family relations and kindred spirits.  Tolec, thank you sooo much!  It was an adventure that is still continuing to shift me into new realities and heart spaces.  Bless you! ~  Chrissie, California

What is true, and what is most important, is that we are here for our own awakening, and the rediscovery of our own greater cosmic role, and in quantum consciousness, existent on this planet, part of the overall multi vibrational, multi dimensional life force permeating throughout the cosmos, throughout ALL space, dimensions of life and time, which in space is virtually non existent.  What is also true is that we are here to rediscover our individual soul fractal's greatestmost uniqueindividuated gifts... so that we can be completely empowered, authentically empowered, to live the best version of our most true, authentic selves.   Consistent with this awakening, continued evolution, growth and greater consciousness... is our ability to choose to be most kind & loving with whomever we come in contact.  For it is in these moments that we can share the ease and grace, and sacred moments, that are achievable on this planet, today.

Further, we're at a very interesting, very dynamic and challenging moment, almost at the intersection, in the evolution of "modern [hu]man", of humanity, affecting all people, on this beautiful planet Earth, which bears close examination.

We are on the precipice of incrediblepositivesweeping changes in the evolution of this great Nation, and around the globe. There are so many facets of this global change...  which will continue to come to light, unlike ever before in the modern history, in this epoch, of this world.

Therefore, ultimately, the goal of this 2020 Wopila conferenceof this special Native American focused & inspired eventwill be to provide an intimate forum so that people can discuss in great depth the many above topics, and more relevant ones about who we are, who we want to be, become more informed & enlightened...  so that we can make the best possible, personal choices and decisions for ourselves, and our children, to decide where we want to go, and how we want to do it, as a diversified race of humans on this planet, especially during this time of incredible change, into our future.  Will we do it with internal strength and fortitude, and surety, that we can become better than who we are today?  Will we reach out and help each other... when our 'footing' is not always sure?  Will we be at our best?  Will we make the difficult decisions to be better... as we face future challenges.

What will happen... in the moment... when we actually come face-to-face, on this planet, out in the open... with no more questions about whether we are alone, or not.  How will we treat benevolent, sentient, intelligent extraterrestrial life, who may or may not look like us.  Of any height, skin, eye or hair color.  Ones that our Native brothers & sisters have always known about in their mythologies & legends, their ancestors, the star people.  That these people will likely be far more emotionally & spiritually evolved and advanced than we [our global society] are... at this near future moment.   How will we act?  How will we treat them?  Will we be fearful and/or arrogant?  Will we ignorantly make demands?   Or, will we extend a hand of warmth, kindness and friendship?  How will we be evaluated by them, in that moment.  So many incredible moments ahead of us and so many important choices we will need to make. 

And, all throughout this conference, you the attendees will have many, multiple opportunities to explore these topics, with each Speaker & among each other, each of, all three (3) days, while developing new connections and friendships...  in a sense of intimacy, community and family.

That this event can provide the kind of stimulus for people to explore these and discuss all the future potentials, possibilities; and, evolve, expand, transform and grow from them.  And, leave this specific conference... with a sense of greater joy with the potential for many new beginnings.  We all have the ability to affect others... in a positive way.  You never know.

It's also about the ultimate healing, expansion and transformational growth of the Earth human.  I believe the topics to be discussed, and goals of this conference, in the setting described, especially in this year of 2020, are definitely a worthwhile endeavor.   note:  the photos below are actual photos of this beautiful, southwest red rock country.

we progress into becoming a more awake, aware and enlightened species.   But first, we must rediscover the core of who each one of us truly

"Wopila".    A  Lakota word generally meaning:  to give thanks, to have gratitude, appreciation and gratefulness
for all we are given, and for all of those who mean so much to us within our immediate Community.  note: this year's conference will be a much smaller happening, a far more intimate event, likely set for a maximum 
of about 44-64 people.  I am purposefully doing this so that people attending will have far more
many, intimate, and multiple, occasions to speak at length with the Speakers
and each other ~ all throughout this special event.

Medicine Man,
Life on this planet is not about the alleged global pandemic,'Corona virus/aka/"COVID-19".  What's really going on... is the beginning of the end of many failing & broken systems in this country [USA], and clean-up, all across this incredible,very special planet.  There is so much more...
And, I believe we will achieve an equally similar deep connection with each other, and even more so, with this very unique, intimate special event for this year's 2020 gathering.   More to come.....

south from Flagstaff, and take the exit for Cottonwood/Camp Verde [AZ State Road 260].  At the exit, head toward Cottonwood on AZ State Road 260. Drive about 24-25 minutes and you will come upon the intersection of 260 -and- AZ State Road 89A.  Take a right onto 89A and drive about one half hour up the hill into west Sedona.   And, then travel to your overnight accommodations. 
 The easiest way to get to Sedona, Arizona  ~ is to take I-17 north from Phoenix, or I-17
ls being held at a private location in Sedona.  As you see below in photos ~  it has a sweat  lodge, a tipee, and a dome building on site.  The address will be forth-coming and sent via e-mail directly  to  all  the conference attendees.

RV Parks, Campgrounds
I'm going to provide two (2) great choices in terms of RV Parks that are busy, open and offering great amenities.  One place has more of an old school, personalized service, upgraded sites & services (I've stayed here before, a great spot, really nice people)... and has lots of greenery, shade trees, shaded sites...  and is right next to the Verde River:  Rio Verde RV Park.   It's located on the west side of the street of 89A, just before you enter Cottonwood.  It has a total of 65 RV spots/campsites with full hook-ups.  From here, it is a quick 24 minute drive north on 89A to Sedona.

The other is a brand new, modern, contemporary, award winning facility, it won the Top Arizona RV Park Award in 2019.  This place is called:  VERDE RANCH RV RESORT.  It has  399 full hookup RV sites/campsites with 50 amp service and 16 furnished vacation rental cottages, including studio, one- and two- bedroom options.   As a conference attendee you will receive a 20% off discount from the normal high season price. (RV Sites ONLY).   The quickest way to Sedona from this spot... is a short drive to I-17 north. 

Both RV parks have limited remaining capacity, as both September & October are considered "high season" as the temperature start to cool down in the high desert area of Sedona, Cottonwood, Camp Verde , Arizona areas.     

When you call either place make sure to provide the information that you are an attendee of my conference, and give them this code:   "2020 Wopila Conference".   As with the above hotels, these RV Parks are recommendations & suggestions.
