Connect, reflect at Conscious Transformation

Conscious Transformation instructor Mandy Benedict

EDWARDS — Conscious Transformation Groups are free monthly gatherings designed to help people connect with like-minded individuals who are focused on personal and professional fulfillment. Each meeting consists of a Conscious Transformation teaching — a tool or meditation — and an opportunity to create a simple, practical plan for daily life. This supportive environment is a space for people to connect, reflect and transform.

The next group is Wednesday at 7:15 p.m. at Align Vail, located at 210 Edwards Village Blvd., B202 in Edwards.

This gathering will be taught by Mandy Benedict, a teacher of Conscious Transformation. After years of personal development, focused meditation and a formal, extensive training program led by Joey Klein, founder of Conscious Transformation, Benedict leads these transformative classes regularly throughout the Vail Valley. Having grown up in the valley, she has a deep passion for supporting people in our community with the tools provided by this work. She also manages her family’s business, Ruggs Benedict, where she helps the business thrive by creating a strong network of relationships.

The focus of this month’s Conscious Transformation Group will be freedom. The group will explore what it means to feel a sense of freedom in our minds, in our bodies and with our emotions. The topic aligns well with the Transformation Series, which includes mental mastery, emotional mastery, physical mastery and spiritual mastery. Each course is a six-part series that includes teachings, meditations and a daily action plan. The classes come with a CD series to support the work done in class between meetings. The current focus is on emotions.

“Each emotion we feel creates a lens through which we view the world. Reality will appear one way if we see the situation through a lens of anger and completely different when viewed through a lens of joy. The Emotional Mastery Course teaches us that it is within our power to choose a new lens,” said Benedict.

“Emotions are present in every aspect of our lives and have an impact on each decision we make throughout the day,” she said. “Research now shows that emotional intelligence is the key to healthy relationships, career success and overall satisfaction in life. Thankfully, emotional intelligence is something that can be learned and continually improved throughout life.”


Benedict also hosts a downvalley free meditation group each month. The May event will be held on Tuesday, May 19 at 7:15 p.m. at the Shakti Center, located at 200 Capital St. in Eagle.

“The Transformation Series helps individuals change their core emotional, mental and physical patterns to enhance their daily lives and deepen their connection to their spirit. Participants in the program have reported reduced stress, increased focus, improved sleep, more energy throughout the day and a greater sense of peace and purpose,” said Benedict.

ABOUT The Program

Conscious Transformation involves the purposeful examination and shifting of the subconscious workings of the innermost self — the essence of mental, emotional, physical and spiritual patterns — which Klein calls “the inner matrix.”

Conscious Transformation is an internal development system that allows people to get inside of those fundamental internal patterns, creating the lens through which people experience their lives. Once an awareness of these foundational patterns is developed, profound shifts can be made on a deep level by using the tools Klein provides to produce permanent change.
