World-Renowned Global Leader and Orator to be Featured at Santa Barbara Consciousness Network’s™ Upcoming Event“>

To Take Place Friday, September 9, 2016 at 6:30 PM - 10:00 PM
at Unity of Santa Barbara, 227 E. Arrellaga Street, Santa Barbara, CA.
(Santa Barbara, CA)— People from all over the Santa Barbara area are rushing to attend what has become an integral part of the Santa Barbara culture — Santa Barbara Consciousness Network’s “Conscious Networking” events. What began as 23 year-old Forrest Leichtberg’s dream has grown into one of the most successful, most anticipated series of events in the conscious space in Santa Barbara. With a mission to network the world’s change agents and nurture their collaboration, SBCN is pioneering a new movement in the fields of personal, professional, business, and social development with its transformational Conscious Networking Experience.

On Friday, September 9, 2016, from 6:30 PM to 10:00 PM, The Santa Barbara Consciousness Network™ will be presenting an extraordinary lineup at Unity of Santa Barbara (227 East Arrellaga Street) — including Santa Barbara’s own world-renowned leader in consciousness, acclaimed international speaker, author and life coach, Rikka Zimmerman, who will speak on the subject: “Activating Your Highest Destiny.” Attendees will be able to meet Zimmerman and participate in a Q&A with her after the presentation.

This is a rare opportunity in Santa Barbara to hear and experience this world-renowned global leader and orator who has impacted the lives of over 150,000 people all over the world.

Propelled by her unbounded love for humanity, Zimmerman travels the world and works with thousands of people through her organization, Adventure in Oneness, radiating joy, peace and limitless possibility in all she does. She is a beacon of inspiration, inviting each person on the planet to remember, embrace, and be the magnificent, unique most brilliant and highest version of themselves that they were born to be. In addition to her classes all over the world and appearances on various TV and radio shows, she has collaborated with internationally recognized spiritual teacher Panache Desai, and appeared alongside many renowned speakers and authors, including: Dr. Wayne Dyer, Michael Beckwith, Lynn McTaggert, Gregg Braden, Marci Shimoff, Neale Donald Walsch, Marianne Williamson, John Assaraf and other conscious leaders.

One of Rikka’s most dramatic experiences — a story she will share in the forthcoming Conscious Networking Event — relates to her healing of cancer, which she accomplished within one year despite having been told by doctors that she had just a few weeks to live. In spite of her recent circumstances, Rikka exudes love and appreciation of life and is the quintessential example of someone who embraces it, each and every day.

Entertainment at the September 9 Networking Event will be provided by Santa Barbara’s beloved musical team of singer/songwriter Bent Myggen and Magi Myggen. The duo’s combination of music and voice inspires countless listeners. Bent Myggen has had approximately 300 musical works published and released around the world (35 countries), with many used in both television and film. His original songs are full of melody, meaning and heart — and the blend of this couple’s voices makes them soar.

Included in the September 9 event will be a wide array of vendors, on-site healers and intuitive readers, offering their products and services to all attendees. In this way, SBCN connects the area’s most beloved conscious organizations and skilled practitioners with the community they serve, strengthening the bonds between them and creating relationships through which true healing and transformation can take place.


Each SBCN event has a different talent lineup and speakers, with themes ranging from general consciousness, to health and wellness, personal/emotional empowerment, business mastery, and thriving in today’s world.

SBCN provides a unique networking platform with many opportunities for conscious businesses and the general public to connect and share their needs and services. Every event includes many local vendors and representatives from the area’s leading conscious businesses and organizations, offering a variety of special products, unique services, on-site healers and scrumptious organic food and drink.

SB Consciousness Network is the only platform of its kind in the greater Santa Barbara area. Its success is attributable to the vision and dedication of its founder, Forrest Leichtberg, who expresses much gratitude and devotion to the Santa Barbara community. A few years go, Forrest experienced a life-threatening health event which led him to delve into the self-help field and, after a long and extensive healing process, ultimately helped him find his purpose, heading The Santa Barbara Consciousness Network™ — now the area’s fastest-growing networking and event organization for the conscious community.

SBCN’s mission: help people share their knowledge and power and growth potential for the betterment of humanity. Goals include:
Supporting and promoting responsible and conscious businesses and organizations in the community;
Raising the community’s awareness about what is available in Santa Barbara to promote healing and positivity of any kind;
Uniting Santa Barbara’s conscious community;
Strengthening the connectedness of the community to assist agents of change in making a true impact on the planet;
Assisting personal and collective transformation via education, inspirational and entertaining lectures, forums and Q&A’s;
Nurturing and providing professional healing opportunities for all attendees;
Networking the world’s change agents and nurture their collaboration.

Within just a few months, Forrest Leichtberg’s Santa Barbara Consciousness Network has become known and beloved to people all over Santa Barbara. They’ve already built a conscious community of hundreds of people, and garnered the support of many of the area’s leading organizations.

Says Ellen Glazer, who has attended each Santa Barbara Consciousness Network events, “To me these events are more of an experience than an event. They are totally engaging, and I get so much out of them. Not only do I meet new friends and contacts, I walk away with valuable information that I can apply to my life immediately.”

Founder Forrest Leichtberg says:
“What the community is witnessing right now is the creation of a real movement, one that can impact the lives of countless people. And it’s working. This community’s response to our events has been astonishing!
I attribute our success to the amount of heart that’s been poured into all of this, and to the fact that this is something that the community has been looking for. People want this. People have waited for this. And now, it’s here for them.
They know that it is the conscious community that can truly make a difference on this planet. They understand that working together for the greater good can heal our world.
Through our Consciousness Network, we are doing everything we can to add real value to the lives of people in this community. And we envision Conscious Networking Events spreading to cities across America, even around the world. Imagine the impact that could make! Santa Barbara’s Conscious Networking Events are only the beginning of what’s possible, which is something truly impactful and beautiful.”
