Access your Dreams Retreat: Assisi, Italy
Nov 15–21st, 2013
Did you ever wish you could step outside your day to day life and focus on restoring your emotional, physical and/or spiritual balance? Do you ever feel frustrated, stuck or overwhelmed in life?
Or feel the urge to stop settling for less than living the dream you know in your heart you could have? You know action is needed to make your life’s desires come true, yet your thoughts constantly keep running around in circles sabotaging your progress. Thoughts about insecurity, anger, regrets, guilt, shame and sorrow…
The only way to embody the power to change your circumstances is to learn how to become stronger, emotionally and physically, and more creative. Learning to overcome obstacles and find the emotional power to go from dreaming to action and finally make things happen in your life is the key!
If this sounds like your situation you must join Life Strategist Mami Veza’s – Access your Dreams Retreat to help you reach the state of mind you need to be in to effectively give birth to your deepest and most sacred dreams.

Are you living YOUR passion?
I wanted to share with you something that Rev. David Ault wrote regarding something he is very passionate about in life. I find that when people are truly and fully engaged in life they are happier, healthier, and they tend to feel more fulfilled. So I ask you the question – are you living your passion?
Behold my passion. My life purpose gained greater clarity when I arrived in Siem Reap, Cambodia in the latter part of January 2004. What started out as a routine sacred site journey turned into a significant part of my life’s calling.
The people who were a part of my tour that year experienced the unforgettable privilege of feeding some of the most destitute souls along the banks of the Tonle Sap Lake in this part of SE Asia.
After careful instruction on what to expect when feeding hundreds of impoverished children, we went to local merchants to purchase appropriate, nourishing food. After clearing out three local street markets of everything they had, the total cost came to a whopping $86 US dollars.
It was there alongside an empty vendor stand that one of life’s defining moments occurred. I realized that even I could do something to create ongoing support for these children who had nothing – a vow that would transform my life.
It has taken many years, many mistakes and set-backs including Communist interrogation, but the ultimate dream came true when I was approved in 2009 to open up a non-government regulated school within the Siem Reap area.
Since then, donor participation has allowed me the privilege to build two outdoor pavilions, a bathroom, and fresh water well facilities. Serving well over 200 students annually, we teach English, mathematics, native Cambodian music and dance.
We also emphasize life skills and agriculture training along with providing hygiene and medical assistance to the orphaned and disenfranchised children throughout the Siem Reap region. To date we have constructed 23 fresh water wells throughout the neighboring villages with a goal to provide at least a dozen more every year.
I started Khmer Child Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit organization stateside, that aligns with Future Khmer Child – a non-government regulated organization (NGO) in Cambodia, to facilitate the funding of these ongoing programs.
Every year, we outline a goal that will benefit the growing demands of our school. The project for early 2012 is aimed at constructing a sewing center to provide vocational training for young girls as a preventative to the ongoing threats of a growing slave trade market.
Future projects include housing for those who are orphaned as well as meeting our yearly budget which covers school administration, teacher salaries, medical support, food and utilities. Our success is because of your ongoing support in providing these resilient kids a chance for a better now and a brighter future.
Blessings & Love, David Ault
Director, Khmer Child Foundation
If you want to experience something deeply heartfelt and visit the stunning sacred ruins of Angkor Wat – I highly recommend signing up for David’s upcoming Voluntour Journey to Cambodia Jan 22-Feb 1st, 2014.
For 30 years David has traveled the world as a New Thought musician, keynote speaker and workshop/retreat facilitator. He is currently the Senior Minister of Spiritual Living Center of Atlanta, located in Atlanta, GA.
David has more than ten years traveling back and forth to the country of Cambodia. Through the years he established Khmer Child Foundation – a stateside 501c3 that helped fund and build a non-government regulated school right in the heart of Siem Reap. Gaining full approval from the Cambodian government in 2009, KCF has raised the funds and built outdoor classroom pavilions, providing free education year round to over 200 regular attending children and over 31 fresh water wells.
