Andrea Smith

Andrea Smith

A Coloring Book Based on A Course in Miracles

Andrea Smith’s paintings are colorful journeys through life. Her art, like her words, expresses the endless process of humankind in search of purpose and harmony. Andrea has often referred to her work as an observational meditation for the viewer.

For Andrea Smith, art is not only a thing created, it is also a thing that creates. Art is meant to challenge the mind, to summon new insights, and to pose new ideas. Art is a force that dares us to look within. This is what Andrea’s art inspires us to do, to look within.

Her work has been called surreal, abstract, expressionistic, sensual and mystic. Surely it is all of these and perhaps a good deal more. Freedom, love and gladness can be felt in every sweep of her brush. Most of all there is intuition in Andrea’s art, as if some greater awareness were using her talents to present its special wisdom. She paints with her “inner eye” allowing her art to flow without restraint. Andrea Smith was drawn to art by its widely instructive and creative potential. A former teacher, her paintings have been used by Prentice Hall for creative writing classes in public school systems throughout the U.S. She has brought her knowledge of people into the very shapes and themes of her work, achieving an emotional relationship with her viewers. Indeed, she is able to reach and kindle our deepest and finest instincts.

The Most Powerful Manifestation Tool In History


Thirty-five hundred years ago humanity was given the key to unlocking the riches of the Soul, but as the centuries passed the secret was lost and was nearly forgotten. The story of Moses offers certain clues about the secret of Soul Manifestation, all focused on attracting goodness rather than just goods. James Twyman's New York Times bestselling book and movie The Moses Code was the first to reveal this ancient technology, but now there is a new way of understanding this Divine Gift which he will share in this talk.

The Joy Frequency: Remembering Who You Are and Why You’re Here


We are energy beings—each with our own unique frequency—swimming in a sea of constantly fluctuating vibrations. We tend to “frequency-match” the vibrations of the people or places around us, just like tuning forks. Thus we might feel suddenly worse—or depressed—if the vibrations we match are lower than our own. Penney will help you identify and attune yourself to your own “home frequency,” or your “preferred state”—the vibration of your soul in your body.

As you make a habit of choosing your home frequency over any other vibration, and stabilize your life at that vibration, you easily remember who you are spiritually and that you don’t really need love because you ARE love, you come from love, and all you want to do is play joyfully in the love, create with love, and share love. We’ll go into that home frequency state to reconnect with what your inner spark—the real you—wants to do next.

Your intuition is trying to help your life flow easier, find your best spiritual companions, and re-create and re-invent yourself and your life situations until you are living as "the most elegant version of you." This lively workshop will help you name and claim the type of intuition that you have, and kick it up a notch!

We will cover:

  • The five types of intuition
  • The four blocks people have with intuition
  • The steps to developing, recognizing, discerning, and trusting intuition
  • Intuition and your life purpose

"The intuitive mind needs to be re-instated on the throne next to the rational mind, where together they can work in harmony to create a fulfilling and effective life."
—from The New Kitchen Mystic by Mary Hayes Grieco

Concurrent Workshop
With Penney Peirce

8:30 AM-10:00 AM
Conference Room D

The Power of Attention and Empathy:
Feeling into the Moment for the Joy of Kinship


We’re becoming ultrasensitive these days as the vibration of the planet steadily increases. We are able to discern preverbal data—energy information—coming to us directly via our personal field and body. This can make us feel overwhelmed and agitated if we don’t have a way to translate the information and make it conscious. Our growing empathic ability is one of our greatest gifts, and it leads us into a state of communion and unity that unfailingly produces joy.

Join Penney to work with focused attention to shift from left to right brain, from observation to direct knowing. Learn to “feel into” and merge with things that seem separate from you, so you can know the world from other points of view through “conscious communion.” Each moment is filled with another form of YOU, appearing for a good reason. Dive in and you find awe, off-the-charts gratitude, and the amazing, joyful varieties-of-oneness of the divine.

Recharge Your Brain For Lasting Love, Happiness and Health


We need more than new communication skills and an understanding of our differences to have healthy relationships these days. We also need the nutritional support necessary for positive moods, sustained energy and most importantly, focus.

Without focus, communication breaks down in all relationships and frustration increases. Without focus in romantic relationships, passion is lost and there is an increase in breakups and divorces. Without focus at work, people are increasingly dissatisfied and bored, often feeling unappreciated, distracted, exhausted or overwhelmed. Without focus, our lives lose purpose, we are easily distracted, forgetting what we are here for or never realizing what is most important in life.

In the midst of our accelerated progress, our modern society has lost our way. We have a greater consciousness of new possibilities but we feel less connected in our relationships due to our loss of focus.

Dr. Sue Morter

Beyond All Obstacles: Creator Consciousness



In this mind stretching, heart-deepening presentation, Dr. Sue Morter will map out a way of thinking, being and perceiving that transcends the familiar use of our senses and our faculties and clear the path to a greater understanding of the truth of who we are as creators of our life experience.

In addition to introducing new ideas about the limitations of ALL thoughts and beliefs, Dr. Sue will bring you to a level of understanding of your most expanded and highest potential: Creatorship rather than Survivorship. “What would you do with your mind if you weren’t creating problems to solve, or busily solving them?” Dr. Sue leads the way to answering those and many more questions about the merging of science, spirit and human possibility though Quantum science, Bioenergetics and user-friendly neuroscience.

You are more brilliant than you think. In fact, you are more brilliant than you CAN think! But you can activate your brilliance without thinking. She will not only demonstrate where in the brain and body we need to land our conscious concentration to enliven this brilliance, she will also show you how! Beyond healing and beyond winning, there is an energy field of creative essence. This is where we are destined to live; this is what we are made of. Learn techniques to live without obstacles and become a Quantum Creator.

For additional information, please visit: www.cellularatsea.com

How much cash should I bring?

Cash may be needed for special sessions with some presenters, practitioners, and to purchase from the conference gift store. An ATM machine is located onboard. There is a transaction fee plus any other fees your financial institution would charge.

When do we embark and disembark?

(Note the following carefully when making your flight reservations) The ship departs Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades) at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 12, 2017. You must arrive at the pier at least 90 minutes prior to departure in order to board.

We highly recommend you arrive into Fort Lauderdale on Saturday, February 11, one day prior to sailing so you will be assured to arrive at the ship on time on Sunday, February 12. Boarding begins on Sunday, February 12, about noon (as soon as Customs clears the ship).

The Royal Caribbean Freedom will return to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, early in the morning of February 18 and disembarkation will begin about 8:30 a.m. Everyone is generally off the ship by approximately 10 a.m. RCL recommends that you schedule a return flight from Fort Lauderdale International Airport at 11:30 a.m. or later. International guests should allow an extra 60-90 minutes.


What clothing should I pack?

Light, casual clothing is suggested. Remember your swimwear, and if you plan to participate in yoga or other exercise classes, we suggest loose cotton clothing or other comfortable attire. You'll also want low-heeled, rubbersoled shoes for strolling on deck, as well as comfortable walking shoes or sandals to wear.

Bring a sweater, a jacket or an all-weather coat for cool evenings, and for shore excursions, depending on your destination. After 6:00 pm, jeans, t-shirts, shorts, and bare feet are discouraged in the ships' public areas. The ship has two gala nights for optional evening attire at dinner. Typically, on these two nights at dinner there is a range from “smart casual” or business attire to formal wear. The weather is generally warm at this time of year, but it can be cool and breezy in the mornings and evenings out on the deck. Also, although all cabins are air conditioned and individually controlled, we are not able to control the temperature in the public spaces such as the dining room and lecture rooms, which may be cool, so a sweater or light jacket is recommended.

This can be (1) A valid US Passport Book (preferred) or Passport Card or (2) Birth Certificate (original or Certified Copy) PLUS Government issued Photo ID card (names on these documents MUST match).
