Welcome to the front line of human evolution.
Founded in 2011, Human Being Training is a registered nonprofit and the road show of Amanda Parker Lambert, author of the forthcoming 4-book series Human Being Training.
What I like to do most is remind people that each of has the answers to the key questions Who Am I? and Why Am I Here? My mission is to provide you with the space, inspiration, courage, and energy to remember that.
What we really are and what we're being told we are, are two different things. We've given away our natural power. We've forgotten the confidence in us that so many superb Human Beings have expressed: "All these things I can do, you can do also, and more." --Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, Allah, Moses, Yoda, The Flying Spaghetti Monster, etc.
Together, we're redefining "normal."
MORE ABOUT AMANDA
I love racing cars, strategic swearing, wild music, moving in a vigorous fashion, judicious drinking, observing the many faces of God, laughing, seeing light bulbs come on over peoples' heads (and mine), hanging out with my kid, staring at trees and birds in flight, and about a million other things. I love living.
I have a strong streak of spirituality in my personal yoga practice that comes through in my teaching. I'm devoutly nondenominational, but if you try to pin me down, I'll probably mention something about the Tao or Zen.
Click here for an up-close look at my teaching style and some of the main ideas I discuss. (My friend dropped the camera at the end, but oh well.)
My classical yoga training from the Santa Barbara Yoga Center (mainly through Erich Schiffmann) is based on Iyengar's teachings, which emphasize strength, precision, and healing. My other main yogic influence is Ashtanga, based on constant movement, powerful breath, and personal transformation through wringing out the body/mind/spirit. I've also studied with Paul Grilley, Sarah Powers, Lisa Walford, and Cherie Clampett.
You could choose to come to Human Being Training events for the great yoga-based workout alone, or open your heart and mind to experiences and information that might take you into unknown and wonderful new territories. It's a Rabbit Hole for sure. You should probably come.
And introducing Frank, the latest guy to come onboard at HBT! He's the official mascot, and his main job is to remind everyone (including me) how not-serious everything really is. Frank talks to people without words, which can bog us down. He says, "Hey, be yourself! We love weird around here. You totally belong." :)
