Bethany Ann Gonyea is the Founder Director of NUMINOUS, sponsor of the Resonant Peaceful Cities Project. For almost 30 years, Ms. Gonyea has invited people to invoke the power of focused healing intention to facilitate health and wellbeing during hundreds of private and public biofeedback sessions. After watching the power of intention inside the body, she started studying the prayer and intentional research for sending intentions outside of the body. Her research pursuits inspired her to start The Resonant Peaceful Cities Project.
Bethany has been pioneering the states of consciousness and internal processes required for what she refers to as the Consciousness Athlete Lifestyle, a method for confidently using the body as a biofeedback instrument of consciousness and grace. Her audiobooks, Women, Food, Sex, and Power – A Step By Step Program for Rekindling Your Fire, and Gaining Traction with Law of Attraction: A 30-Day Bootcamp To Totally Transform Your Life can be found in the store of this website.
When Bethany was a young college student attending music school, she experienced a severe pain disorder that caused her to lose control over her physical body. Even though the medical professionals told her that there was nothing she could do about it, she refused to give up and & set an intention to heal.
Over the course of seven years, Bethany was able to heal herself utilizing biofeedback and the power of intention. Ultimately, she was able to open to a power greater than herself. Now she helps empower others by teaching them to take control over their locus of consciousness and intention so that it works for them, instead of just running rampant. She says: “I’m always aware where my consciousness is parked.”
For Bethany, illness always starts in the energy field until it finally makes its way into the body. Healing is the unraveling of that field. She says: “Your body is really just a place to let people know where your spirit is.”
She talks about the evolution of her Resonant Peaceful Cities Project, a collection of research projects designed to determine how many trained meditators creating a coherent state in their bodies and then focusing peaceful intention outwardly can measurably reduce local violence. Bethany wants to show people that they are far more powerful than they’ve been raised to believe.
In the end, Bethany explains that these meditations can not only reduce violence and change the world for the better, but they also have been shown to increase happiness by 84% for participants in the peace project. She says that when you start lightening the heart, you get happy as a wonderful side effect!
