Crystal Wisdom Grids and Instruments 

Dee Purcell

This is a practical workshop exploring Earth elements, minerals, and crystals as tools for enhancing physical energy and space energy through the use of grids and intention setting.

Participants will receive a brief review of crystal properties, points, facets, and windows and then instructions on creating grids.  It is important to know how to place crystals in particular directions to facilitate the movement of energy as well as learning which are the best crystals to invoke specific properties, and you will come away with a greater knowledge of this process.

Participants will learn when to create a grid and how to prime and nourish it, and finally, participants will have the opportunity to create their own grids with a partner or very small group.  You will discover and understand how to set intention and focus, thus allowing the crystals to enhance manifestation.

This workshop explores Earth energy and how to connect with it.  It includes a foray into the energetic centers of the Earth, including the corresponding Earth Chakras and other notable vortices and their properties.  It provides a discussion of the use of dowsing to receive information from the geomagnetic earth energy.

Weather permitting, participants will have the opportunity to practice connecting with the leyline that runs through Camp Chesterfield, and using tree branches to practice dowsing.  In case of inclement weather, practice will occur in the classroom with a variety of branches and dowsing rods that will be provided by the presenter.

Reflection and journaling will be encouraged to solidify connection with the Earth energy.

Rev. Carol Hoeve

Auras By Any Name 

Rev. Carol Hoeve

What do electromagnetic field, soul energy, bio-electric field, human energy field, etheric field, astral energy field and Spiritual energy field have in common?

Perhaps they are all words to describe the same thing.  Auras By Any Name is an experiential workshop dedicated to teaching you to perceive the human aura by seeing, sensing and feeling it.

>  What is an aura and how does it serve you?

>  Do their colors or density hold answers to health issues or even past lives?

>  What affects your aura and how does it affect you?

Carol will be helping you discover the answers to these questions and more.  A volunteer will be selected by drawing an attendee’s name from the hat to assist in the visual demonstrations, and this volunteer will receive a chalk pastel sketch of their aura ($75 value) free.

From Connection to Communion 

Rev. Julie MacDonald

In this workshop, participants will learn how to go beyond just “connecting” with spirit to spirit communion.  It is common for us to spend our time looking for messages, whether we are trying to develop our mediumship skills or just wanting to feel supported.

Spirit may bring us information that is translated into our language, but what if you learned how to speak the language of spirit?

Through exercises, examples and practice you will learn and experience the power of communion, ritual and expression that translates into the poetry of the other realms.

Participants will learn to cultivate a greater connection, deeper understanding and access to many more worlds and realms of existence as well as enhance your compassion, bring clarity and much more joy into your everyday life.

This workshop offers you the opportunity to truly walk the walk of spirit.

Mid-Life Re-Creation

Rev. Julie MacDonald and Anne Magdalene

As we reach the midpoint of our lives, we often reflect on what we once wanted, what may have stopped us from getting what we wanted and may even have some regrets that we didn’t take risks, or that we created a safe life rather than the life we had imagined for ourselves.

Do you feel something is missing from your life?

Do you feel stuck or frustrated with the direction of your career, marriage or life overall?

If you can relate to any of these, then you need a mid-life reboot! Mid-Life Re-Creation is a workshop designed to assist you in manifesting more of what you desire.  Utilizing guided meditations, vision boarding and theta healing, participants will identify what obstacles are in the way and what may be preventing them from achieving their goals.  Assisting in beginning the clearing of the obstacles identified and learning steps of putting manifestation into motion through designing a persona contract solidifying your commitment to yourself and your Mid-Life Re-Creation.

The Anunnaki – Creator Gods of the Bible

Martyn Richey

Have you ever wondered why the creation story in the Bible says, “then God said, let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness”.    An odd plural statement: “let us”? Certainly a conflicting statement in a religious text describing the nature and worship of a single god. And what is image and likeness?

Largely based on the research and writings of Zecharia Stichen, along with others, this presentation takes us on a journey back in the history of this planet to a time be-fore the creation of humankind. Using clay tablets, statuary and art-work from ancient Sumer, we learn the story as told by their gods, the Anunnaki. We find Sumerians, in what is now Iraq, 4000 years before the birth of Jesus. Considered to be the cradle of civilization, their texts reveal modern commerce, highly technical and scientific understanding, and a society based on serving gods who physically lived with them and directed their daily affairs.

We will discuss biblical Watchers, and the Fallen Angels, also called the Nephilim, who found human females attractive and took them as wives thus creating giants who later were killed in a flood by God. Finally, we learn of the rivalry between two Anunnaki princes and their families: Enlil the supreme leader of the earth project and his brother Enki, a gifted scientist and geneticist who after many attempts created the first modern human to serve the Anunnaki.

Inspired or Automatic: Developing Your
Connection to Spirit Through Writing

Alexander Zielinski

Is there a difference between Automatic Writing and Inspired Writing? Does the pen really move? Can you use a keyboard? Where do these messages come from?

Connecting to Spirit and your own guides through writing is a unique tool that can provide immediately tangible evidence – some-thing you can see and hold. We will discuss the differences between Automatic Writing and Inspired Writing, how to develop clarity in each practice, and how to do the work of connecting through each form of this communication method. A foundation of each practice will be discussed and opportunities to practice both forms of writing will be given.

Pen and paper are necessary for this workshop. It is helpful to use a flat, small or standard legal pad as the paper does not need to be held in place nor does it attempt to close itself such as a journal. Also helpful is a pen with easy or fast-flowing ink such as Pilot G-2 07 or any full gel pen. These tools will make the writing easier to accomplish.

Developing Our Psychic Connection
with Oracle Cards

Alexander Zielinski

Are you feeling called to use a deck of oracle cards for yourself or others? Maybe you have questions about how they relate to tarot and what it means if they’re upside down.

The process can be simple – we ask a question, we shuffle, and then we pull a card – but there’s so much more! While the simplicity of most decks can give us inspiring information for any question or situation, these cards can also be used to trigger conversations with our guides and other Spirit people. We can reach the point where we are no longer simply reading the card face but we are sharing information that our Higher Self, or our guides, wish us to share.

In this workshop we will connect with the energy and spirit of the deck we have chosen. We will establish a ritual or routine for our card selection and use. We will see that a deck may have a limited number of cards, but each one can have a thousand meanings as your intuition and your guides help navigate the message associated with the card. We will discuss, meditate, connect, and use oracle cards in this fun and interactive workshop!

The main deck of use will be the Archangel Oracle deck by Doreen Virtue valued for its simplicity, imagery, and statements. It would be helpful to bring this deck to the workshop, but if you have one that you are particularly fond of, you may bring that as well.

Amiee Boswinkle

Elevated Health for the Conscious Being

Amiee Boswinkle

So many people get caught up in the current food fads: Keto, Paleo, Mediterranean, Blood Type, Intermittent Fasting. All the different diets out there can make one’s head spin. For the past 13 years, I have studied health and the human body and have found that it isn’t necessarily knowing what to eat so much as what your body is asking you to nourish it with. Does that intrigue you? Confuse you? Are you done trying to figure this whole food thing out and want to know what works and what doesn’t so that you can feel healthy, alive and vibrant in your own skin?

Join Amiee Boswinkle for this enlightening workshop to learn about your body’s personal signals related to what it really needs from food, comfort, mental, emotional stress and more. You will leave understanding on every level – body, mind and soul – what to eat, how to eat, who you are being when you eat, and how we sabotage our own success by reverting back to old habits and ways of being when life’s stressors and experiences cross our path.

This workshop will demonstrate how to tap into your body’s wisdom and choose high vibrational foods that serve your highest purpose. It will provide worksheets and applicable tools to keep you moving forward and discover more personal freedom, health and happiness as a result.
