Sound Therapy
with

Himalayan Singing Bowls

 Sandee Moreta 

Sound therapy helps us to shift away from the vibrational frequencies of stress, anger, fear, and negativity. The vibrations of the Himalayan Singing Bowls help to tune us at the cellular level, creating harmony that radiates through our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual layers. Benefits can include deep relaxation, stress reduction, lower blood pressure, improved concentration, increased creativity and heightened intuition. The peace and healing that you look for will be received via the vibration, and positive energy emitted through the bowls.   “It is all in the intention” is Sandee’s reply when asked how the singing bowls work.

Please bring a blanket, favorite pillow, and yoga mat if possible.

About Sandee Moreta

Sandee’s commitment to compassionate healing on an individual level led her to the singing bowls. She has been practicing sound healing since 2007, and in April 2015 completed the “International Sound Healing with Himalayan Chakra Singing Bowls Teacher Training Course” with Suren Shrestha, Master Teacher at the Atma Buti Sound and Vibrational School in Boulder Colorado. Sandee is also a Certified Iyengar Yoga Instructor (RYT 500) and certified Reiki II practitioner.

Workshop for AHA

This workshop has been put together especially for AHA to inspire and experience the healing vibrations from Himalayan Singing Bowls. The following topics will be discussed:

– History of the bowls

– How to select a bowl

– Techniques used to play bowls

– Healing with one bowl

– Group Healing Meditation

We Learned how with one singing bowl, we could find peace within ourself and shift away frequencies of stress, anger, fear, and negativity.  We brought our own bowls and learned how to use it, or used bowls that will be provided during the workshop.  Please note that no experience is necessary and some bowls will be available for purchase.

The AHA truly cares about and are deeply committed to the spiritual development of those who attend, looking to broaden their spiritual experiences and thought processes.  Our speakers and workshops are intended to inspire you on your journey towards higher awareness.

New Thoughts, New Lives

The Healing Power of the Mind

How to Transform Your Life with Intuition, Affirmation, and Gratitude

Is your life taking you in the direction of your dreams or do you feel like someone else is holding the wheel? Is the world “out there” running your life? Do you often feel anxious or depressed? Critical or resentful? Are you experiencing an illness or lack of energy and you can’t seem to shake it? Perhaps someone has told you it’s all in your mind…

This workshop provided us a look at how our thoughts are simultaneously both physical and etheric. By understanding the connections between emotion, thought and belief, we were able to view life through a new lens, allowing us to clearly focus in the present moment, the only place of real power and creativity. We experienced the transformative effect mindful thought has on us personally, as well as the world around us.

The Art and Science of Chinese Face Reading

 with

Peggy Neligan 

 Do you want to live a happier life?

In this presentation about Chinese Face Reading, we learned how to use the skill of Face Reading in our everyday life. Reveal our true nature.  Learn to love and have compassion for yourself and others.

What is Chinese Face Reading?

Ancient Chinese medicine, which is over 3,000 years old, is based on patterns in nature, in the environment, and in the body.  Chinese Face Reading is one branch of this ancient medicine.  Your face is like a map of your life’s journey: physically, mentally, and emotionally.  It can tell you where you’ve been and where you’re going. Face Reading teaches you how to read the story of someone’s life by years and decades in the features, wrinkles, and markings on the face.

Robert Wood’s “No Loss Relationship” 

Robert Wood

 What is a “Holy Relationship” and what does it means to have one?  AHA is fortunate to have Robert Wood explore, examine, and explain these many concepts with us the first Tuesday in May. We delved into creating spiritual involvements with others and learn to maintain this involvement correctly. We found out the differences between a “holy relationship” and a “special involvement”.  We also discovered why Love seems to disappoint 72% of married couples. We came to understand the true power of a spiritual partnership pertaining to “forgiveness”. Finally, we discovered how and why fear damages our relationships.

Based on his new book “No Loss Relationship” Robert lead us through many practical exercises, as well as a meditation that will prove the nature of our true selves.
We brought questions and experienced your holy encounter of LOVE. 

This was a wonderful, new way to get to know yourself even better and you were be enabled to transform your partnership to the greatest real love possible between two souls.

Robert Wood is an intuitive, channel and spiritual counselor. He has been working with the aura and higher-spirit-self since 1978.  Robert lives in Boulder, Colorado and participates in many spiritual expos throughout the country, giving lectures on meditation, spiritual development and prosperity.  He was the director of the Miracle Center in Boulder, CO focusing on “A Course in Miracles”.   He utilizes palmistry, aura and gemstone readings to help his clients understand their higher self with the help of their guides.

“THEIR WAR CAME HOME”,

A 50 minute documentary film made to inform and raise public awareness of issues faced by some returning veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan, their families and their loved ones.

The veterans appearing in the film recount some of their hurdles adjusting to home life after their various deployments — problems which severely impact their reentry into civilian life. Experts in the fields of Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, addiction, and loss of a meaningful identity offer valuable insight concerning these issues, which are referred to as the invisible wounds of war.  Those experts also describe compassion fatigue and living grief, which can affect family members and loved ones.  Suggestions and sources for information and help are included.

Transitioning from military to civilian life can mean searching for a new identity. Who am I now? Developed to help veterans and their families recognize and understand the invisible wounds of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI), this 50 minute documentary produced by Korean and Vietnam veterans Norm Seider, Carl Ohlson, and John Drinkard features the voices of veterans who have returned home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“I was angry, distant, and didn’t want to be around people.”

“I turned to booze and violence. I was a warrior.”

“Losing my brothers was something I can never describe.”

“My whole life changed at the tip of the bullet that day.”

“I was just lost in my own mind.”

Brutally honest interviews show how the use of alcohol, illegal drugs and prescription meds to numb and calm the anxiety, hypervigilance and flashbacks that are symptoms ofPTSD can lead to downward spirals of depression, isolation, homelessness and suicide. Often coupled with traumatic brain injuries resulting in memory loss, changed thinking and explosive anger, their combined effects are “the perfect storm” making it difficult to navigate daily life. Asking for help and seeking treatment can be hard because, “No one wants to admit they have a problem.” Various choices for treatment and methods of healing are described by veterans, social workers, and counselors – all searching for a “new normal” after the devastation of war.

The impact of war spreads to the family. The effects of secondary traumatic stress or compassion fatigue can directly affect the physical and emotional health of caregivers. A spouse reveals, “We walked on eggshells 24/7. There we times we did not feel safe.” The emotional pain of what is unfolding on the home front can lead spouses to ask, “What’s happening to me? Am I going crazy?”  Those who love and live with someone who has been traumatized can’t help but be affected by it. The process of getting to know this “new person” who has come home from war while saying goodbye to the old person is what is called “living grief” and can be confusing because there is no end to it.

No matter how or where you served as a veteran, no matter how long ago or recently you came home… this documentary is for you, your family and those who care about you.

Mutual Healing Between Trees and People
Jim Conroy, PhD. & Basia Alexander

Jim Conroy, PhD & Basia Alexander

 Experience a reciprocal act of healing as we give and receive rejuvenating bio-energies with wise trees.  Weather permitting, we will go outside during this workshop to engage directly with the trees.  We STRONGLY request that people be ON TIME so that we can use the remaining daylight.

Jim Conroy, PhD., and Basia Alexander—co-creators of the Tree Whispering®, Cooperative BioBalance®, and EcoPeace Treaty® systems—serve as our guides for a shaman’s journey into the dynamically balanced world of all ecosystem members—even “invasives.”

  • Enjoy a profound intuitive encounter with trees’ consciousness. Take a shaman’s journey inside their world in a guided visualization exercise. Move from “me” to “we” by coming from the plant’s point of view.
  • Learn about new ways to interact with “invasives.”  People can stop fighting diseases, insects, and unwanted plants. New thinking is needed: mindful collaboration with Nature.
  • See how people and deer can get along and where “invasives” fit in without killing. Be inspired by results of EcoPeace Treaties: hands-on, intentional, intuitive processes mediated with insects, disease organisms, and mammals.
  • Move beyond “it can’t be done” into leading edge thinking about restoring health in local and planetary environments.  Find out what bees need to flourish.
  • Learn simple easy “Whispers” you can use in your own backyard to improve tree, plant, garden, and ecosystem health. Even a small balanced ecosystem is a powerful generator of environmental stability.

Participants will see their path clear toward forging a conscious and collaborative partnership with Nature to reverse environmental damage, gain sacred wisdom, accomplish cultural transformation, and enjoy personal restoration.

In case of bad weather, please bring a small houseplant or two.

Photographing the Fifth Dimension

Christina Lynn Whited

Christina Lynn Whited

Several times each year Christina takes a group of students to a New Jersey portal and introduces them to inter-dimensional photography. As a group initiation, the experience attunes each participant to the process of photographing the fifth dimension, that level of being that is all around us, yet remains largely unseen.

The photos of the students, both of the portal and of other places, tell an amazing story of inter-dimensional as well as intergalactic love and support for the people of the earth and for the earth itself. Christina’s gift of channeling, awakened through dowsing, enables her to be able to describe the images in detail – in otherworldly terms.

With approximately 100 photos in the presentation, a broad overview of recorded phenomena is both enlightening and challenging. These are not photos of graveyards or amorphous misty shapes of the fourth dimension. These are glimpses of the other side and realities beyond our own.
During this 2 hour presentation there will be time for questions and answers.

About Christina:

Christina Lynn Whited has been channeling for over twenty years. She first came to national attention when People Magazine discovered that she was receiving advice from the late James Beard for cookbook based upon an intuitive diet she channeled. Now, with a clientele around the world, she is best known for her work channeling Mother Mary and for Spiritual Detox, including Soul Path Clearance, the work she performs which clears long-held past life pains for her clients.

A popular speaker on such far ranging topics as Inter-dimensional Photography, Animal Mysticism, Past Lives, Ghosts, Energy Healing, and Dowsing, Whited has spoken at national conventions, at libraries and to community groups, and taught in Adult Education venues. She recently became the first recipient of the Explore Life in 5D Grant from Growing Consciousness.

She lives in Western New Jersey where she heads The Circle of Intention School of Intuitive Sciences as well as The Church of All Creation. She can be reached via her website at www.CircleOfIntention.com.

Since childhood, Barbara has been able to perceive the inner world of animals through her telepathic, intuitive and clairsentient abilities. Using the principles of unconditional love and compassion, Barbara    facilitates a healing process, which allows an animal to freely bring her a detailed understanding of the animal’s present and past circumstances.  By communing with your animal’s spirit, she will deepen the bond you have with your beloved pet by bringing insights and practical resolutions to behavioral issues, health concerns, end of life transitions and messages from other states of consciousness.  Barbara assists the animal kingdom in collectively reawakening humanity to our innate and heart-centered language of telepathic communication.

It is Barbara’s core belief that animal communication can open a doorway to our highest human potential.

According to Dr. O, an alchemist writes, “The Ens manifests the highest initiatic virtue of the plant it is made from”, meaning that skillful use of essences from the plant kingdom can serve as powerful tools for our evolutionary growth. We looked at how we can empower ourselves drawing from the Western mystery tradition, shamanic wisdom, Daoism, and esoteric Buddhism. Now is the time to regain our birth right as agents of Spiritual change and thus assist in the planetary quickening.

Dr. Orest V. Pelechaty, L. Ac., is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Medical Herbalist. He is a pioneering expert in Oriental Medicine, one of first licensed practitioners in the United States. You will find his presentation both fascinating and humorous. People walk away smiling and empowered from his talks. Dr. Pelechaty has 27 years of experience in the health and wellness field and has healed thousands of patients, ranging from age 2 months to 92 years old. Tap into his amazing depth of knowledge for your life’s challenges. Dr. Pelechaty says “My goal is for you to get well fast and stay that way.”

Five Mediums

We joined accomplished mediums Natalie Grace, Sherry Hough, Elena Pagan, June Ponte and Frank Steyh for an evening of reunion and communication with Messages from Loved Ones in Spirit. This evening was filled with warmth, love, understanding and humor which warmed the hearts of those present with the knowledge that love never dies and that our loved ones are just a breath away. While many, but not all present, received a message from their loved one, everyone in attendance was touched by the closeness of the Spirit World and amazed by the evidence of their existence, their shared memories and their knowledge of life here and now.

Love is the strongest and most healing energy in the universe. Join us for a loving and healing evening of Messages from Spirit.

Energy Tools for the 21st Century

EFT, The Emotion Code

and Matrix Energetics

Join me in an evening of exploring these powerful energy tools in playful heartspace!

In my personal journey and in working with clients for many years, I have witnessed beneficial shifts in emotional and physical health when we are able to clear energetic blockages and restore the natural flow to the body. Both the body and psyche have incredible powers of self-healing, especially when we are able to remove blocks and dense energies such as trapped emotions.

Over the past several years, two techniques have emerged which are extremely effective for releasing these emotional blockages, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and The Emotion Code, both of which contain elements of Chinese medicine. 

EFT utilizes gentle finger tapping on acupuncture meridian points in conjunction with verbal articulation of specific phrases in order to target the specific issue. This procedure has shown to be stunningly effective in dissolving emotional “short circuits” and blockages. EFT founder, Gary Craig, says that in essence, EFT is a needle- free, emotional version of acupuncture. More info at: www.emofree.com 

The Emotion Code accesses information on trapped emotions about which we often have no conscious awareness. Bradley Nelson, DC, founder of the Emotion Code, has composed a chart (derived from Chinese medicine) which lists 60 emotions. Through a gentle process of muscle testing, we can determine which of those 60 emotions apply to the person being tested. The trapped emotions are then released in a graceful, non-invasive procedure passing magnets over the governing vessel acupuncture meridian. The Emotion code has been shown to be extremely beneficial for a wide range of applications. More info at www.healerslibrary.com 

Matrix Energetics: ME founder, Richard Bartlett, DC, ND, refrains from defining Matrix Energetics, stating that when we define something, we limit it’s potential. He prefers calling ME a “consciousness technology” which constantly upgrades itself.When people ask me what ME is, my usual answer is that it’s, sort of where Quantum Physics meets Shamanism. Modern physicists and shamans tend to agree that although we perceive ourselves and our world as solid, we are truly only light and consciousness. Dr Bartlett says that we actually live in a sea of Infinite Potential and that we can access that unlimited reservoir easily through the “Field of the Heart”. When we try on the idea that our world is really quite fluid, it becomes easier to stretch into the notion that instantaneous shift can and does happen – which is the premise of Matrix Energetics. Let’s have some fun accessing that ambrosial stuff together!

All About Soul /On the Wings of Love

Let your Spirit soar! On the wings of Love, the strongest vibration, you will bring your awareness more fully to who you are…a beautiful, Spiritual Being, born Blessed and Holy.

With led meditation exercises using sound, color and visualization and the integration of all three, we learned to move into the energy of the heart chakra and truly experience the Oneness of Spirit.

As a medium, Karen brought us into a place of Love where we had a healing meeting with members of our soul group, resolved issues and came to greater understandings.

With vibrations raised, we became aware of our soul’s purpose here on earth.

We used affirmations of self worth and competence; of being loved and loveable and intentions using the powerful I AM statements.

Using the soul cards, Karen gave everyone a mini reading. To tie up the evening, we experienced the Love of Spirit with a group healing.

Bird Medicine

The Spiritual Life of Birds 

EvanPritchard

In this workshop / lecture, Evan Pritchard, an author of Mi’kmaq and Celtic descent, shared what he has learned about the significance of each of the major bird species in reading signs (Kee-gay-no-lay-woagun) in Algonquin and other First Nations cultures. Foremost are the four “Gatekeepers,” or “strong birds;” The eagle, hawk, crow, and owl, who work as messengers for Kitchi Manitou or “Great Spirit.”  Then there are the cranes, the gulls, and the songbirds, and several other groups. Each individual bird species has its own special area of strength or “power.”

Then Evan led us on a shamanic dream journey where we connected with the bird whose strength matches our weaknesses, or current areas of greatest challenge. As we became one with the spirit of that bird, we experienced a natural healing and balancing for our own spirit.

Evan Pritchard started learning about Native teachings about birds at 13 from his Great Aunt, a Mi’kmaq woman with remarkable rapport with birds. This planted a seed that led him to write the book Bird Medicine, for which he conducted over a hundred interviews with respected Native elders, and consulted with over 200 sources overall. He has written over 22 critically acclaimed books on Native American culture, history and spirituality, including No Word for Time, Native New Yorkers, Native American Stories of the Sacred, The Sacred Ways of Manitou, Henry Hudson and the Algonquins of New York, and many others.

Eve Kerwin aka White Buffalo Woman
 “Doctor of the Soul”


Eve Kerwin, also known as White Buffalo Woman, is a trance channeler and Shamanic healer.  She demonstrated an Energetic Shamanic Healing on a volunteer during the evening. She started by explaining her personal background and the history of White Buffalo Woman. There was a question and answer session when audience participants may ask personal questions and receive channeled answers. Eve was also available during the evening for a book signing.
How the process works…

  • White Buffalo Woman will greet the person she will be healing by first speaking in a “universal telepathic core language” that is pure vibrational energy. White Buffalo Woman is sharing the core issue that needs to be addressed in a language unfamiliar to us, but is part of the healing process.
  • After a few moments of silence, White Buffalo Woman will go over the physical body with light touches to energetically rewire, clear and properly reroute the energy.
  • Once the energetic rewiring is completed she will speak again in the telepathic language and give an update of what was accomplished. This message will later be interpreted through the exalted being.
  • Eve’s breathing will become more rapid as she prepares for another exalted being to connect through her physical body. She will channel the Archangels, The Ascended Masters, deceased loved ones, personal guides, and/or the Higher Self; whichever aspect needs to relay information will come through.
  • After Eve returns into her physical body she will have total recall to further clarify any questions.

Internationally known as an accomplished Shamanic Healer and Channel, Eve Kerwin brings through profound messages, inspiration, and guidance, working with each individual’s spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical bodies. Eve’s spiritual gifts allow her to offer the opportunity for growth and transformation to her clients. Divinely guided, Eve can help invoke a higher understanding of a person’s soul destiny as it relates to his/her past lives, family, friends, mate, and departed loved ones.
Eve maintains a private practice in Connecticut. She is available for the balancing and clearing of businesses, residential properties and dwellings, in addition to group work, private and phone sessions.

She can be reached at 203-322-3689.

To learn more about her, read her book, The Awakening: The life and work of Eve Kerwin, White Buffalo Woman.

Fifth Dimensional Relationships

with

Ilona Hress

Ilona Hress

Fifth Dimensional Relationships

 Ilona Hress started the evening by introducing participants to their own masculine and feminine energies. We were taught to understand which energy we primarily run in our lives and how it impacts our relationships with every kingdom of nature. We discovered the concept of gender unity in 5D soul-embodiment and were taken through an activation that will allow us to experience what our 5D masculine and feminine feels like. We focused on the development of internal harmony through gender unity so that creativity may flourish.

Our Earth is welcoming us to love as our Soul loves. Our Planet offers us respectful, honorable, and joyful relationships in which to participate with all the kingdoms of nature. From the rocks to the clouds, all life on Earth is falling in love with being at peace and experiencing graceful abundance!

As humanity embraces its soul-embodiment, our ability to unconditionally love creates new realities of harmony and promotes the development of innovative fifth dimensional lifestyles. We will discover the beauty and power of fifth dimensional relationships!

5D relationships are drama-free experiences of respectful and creative collaboration. Struggle is replaced by support in an environment of unconditional loving that responds to whatever we require to become joyously soul-embodied. The spiraling energies of soul-embodiment unify the masculine and feminine energies inside us so that we can create peace and harmony around us. Profoundly safe, fifth dimensional relationships offer us the freedom to make enlightened decisions that lift us beyond fear and into grace. And, they are fun!  Soul-embodied people embrace the beauty of living on this evolving planet and the adventure of developing fifth dimensional lifestyles that honor all life on her. Your Soul is inviting you to experience your own capacity to love fifth dimensionally!

Ilona Anne Hress, L.C.S.W., L.M.T., Rev. is a licensed clinical social worker, connective tissue massage therapist, celestial channel, crystal healer, and metaphysical teacher who maintains a spiritual psychotherapy practice in Madison NJ. Ilona facilitates environments of unconditional loving by providing guidance, understanding, and application of higher dimensional experiences to reach beyond human suffering. She approaches the challenges of personal and planetary healing with a practical joy that promotes self-transcendence. In her presence, celestial lines of communication open to reveal energy as a language of transformation, and through her awareness, integrated healing occurs. Through her monthly newsletter, The Evolutionary Call, she outlines the evolutionary planetary developments that are assisting individuals to become soul-embodied human beings.

Ilona also facilitates monthly New Moon Planetary Activations at the Madison Masonic Lodge where she explains the current evolutionary energies affecting humanity and provides guidance in how to utilize these multi-dimensional frequencies. During these sacred evenings collaboration with the celestial forces propel our evolution from within our universe and co-create an environment that not only encourages the development of a new civilization of peace, but supports and upholds it from the inside out. We humanly contribute to how the incoming frequencies can best be utilized in our personal lives and humanity’s evolution. Being supported and energized to effectively utilize the increasing electrical and crystalline energies now available to us, we enter into conscious connection with the multi-dimensional Light Beings working collaboratively to birth a new civilization of peace.

The Enlighten Game

Bill Hungerford & Nancy Bragin

Bill Hungerford

For those of you courageous enough, bold enough, curious enough…joined us in this great adventure…. the journey to enlightenment. We asked simply that you suspend all judgment, and similar natterings of the lower mind, until you have had the Moment…the one breath of “ah ha” to fully comprehend what this “game” is able to do for you.

The game itself is simple…. but the effects are profound…. in ways you might not fully understand for quite some time…but it matters not…the results will be the same even if your physical brain is not able to grasp it in its entirety. Play on…. anyway.

The Enlighten Game is a quick and easy guided meditation to raise your level of consciousness (LOC). A few minutes every day will calm your mind/body, give you more clarity, improve your decision-making abilities and create more harmony in your relationships. As your LOC increases, your life gets easier….. there is more flow…. less effort in co-creating your abundant reality. The bonus is that you will also have an impact on the collective global consciousness…. you will help to uplift humanity.

Our speaker, Bill Hungerford holds a business degree from the University of Washington and a MA degree in Human Development from Farley Dickinson University. He is a retired Commander in the US Navy and is also a retired business manager with 31 years in the Telecommunication industry. As a former long time co-president of AHA and a former president of a NJ branch of the Theosophical Society, he has been an ardent student of metaphysics for 35 years. He says his personal crowning achievement is the development of the “Enlighten Game”. Visit his co-partners web site: nancybragin.com/the-enlighten-game for information on available “apps” and the Enlighten Game board or contact bungerford@optimum.net.

The world is changing and I’m on the transition team.

 I’m working with those who wish to go beyond human 3-D boundaries and limitations for humanity’s rise to 5-D and higher levels of consciousness, energetics, dimensionality and advanced human evolution.

You won’t find any new age mumbo-jumbo here.  No healing modalities, no fortune-telling, no channelings, no bringing in light or energy from outside sources, no connecting to Ascended Masters, no teachings or road to enlightenment.  There is no light greater than yours.  I’m clairvoyant, clairaudient and an empath.  I’ll use these gifts to help you go within, bring out and shine your gorgeous light.

Jason Wood       Jason Wood, M. ED., RMT is an Energy Medicine Therapist who incorporates spiritual guidance, reiki, magical awakening, sound and nature based traditions in his private practice. He started the evening by giving a brief introduction to his work and describe how he stumbled onto the path of energy medicine and sound therapy. He talked about how and why sound has the potential to heal emotional wounds and help an individual live from a space of unity. For the second part of his presentation he performed a sound healing ceremony, where he called in the grandfathers and grandmothers to assist with healing. Jason blended the use of rattles, drums, three planetary gongs and 13 bowls to help produce a state of relaxation and healing.

Jason Wood is the founder and owner of Pandora Healing in Hawthorne, NJ. Pandora Healing is a Counseling and Integrative Wellness that offers counseling, alternative healing, yoga, tai chi, qi gong, community events and workshops. The vision of Pandora Healing is to create a safe space to help community members heal their relationships to themselves, others, and nature. We believe that our current crisis on the planet is due to the illusion of separation, and as each individual begins to experience the unity found in all things, healing will occur.

Jason Wood graduated with his master’s degree in counseling in May of 2010 and was hired at a private practice to begin the process of becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). Prior to graduating from graduate school, Jason began practicing yoga and receiving acupuncture. The combination of these two practices caused a major shift, allowing him to interact with the world with greater ease and peace. As he began to explore the path of becoming a LPC he quickly realized that this was not his path. Leaving the secure path of a private practice he decided to begin his training in energy medicine and nature based traditions.

In January of 2011 he developed Pandora Healing leaving the path of psychotherapy. Jason’s work is not counseling or psychotherapy but spiritual healing. His practice has evolved into creating a space where individuals can develop insight into their own suffering and begin the process of trusting themselves and their own inner wisdom. Jason achieves this through the spiritual practice of understanding one’s story and learning to create a new one. He also uses energy medicine to help release the stories that are held in the body.

He has been trained by Brett Bevell, who has appeared on NPR and is the author of several acclaimed books including Reiki Magic and Reiki for Spiritual Healing, SomaEnergitics and Grammy nominated Dalien (aka 13 Hands). Jason is also the fire keeper and Peace Chief of the Fourwinds Clan, a Lakota sweat lodge community.

Lo Anne Mayer

LoAnne

Celestial Conversations

 

Author, Lo Anne Mayer, Shared her personal process of prayer, meditation, and journaling with us, showing how to reach beyond the veil to communicate with our loved ones who have passed.  She is committed to helping others discover that love between two people can be shared and relationships healed even after one of them dies.

Seven years of Celestial Conversations has given birth to a book, which Lo Anne feels will help other grieving hearts. This transpersonal process, which focuses on the spirit of human beings, convinced Lo Anne that forgiveness and unconditional love may be found with loved ones beyond the veil.

You will be given the opportunity to share your personal journey with others who want to heal relationships interrupted by death. This gentle healing therapy has been shared in many presentations here in New Jersey and Texas.

All you need is an open mind and a pen.

A New Jersey based mother of six, grandmother of thirteen, Lo Anne’s healing journey began in 1975. Starting with nutrition and ‘Marian Healing’, she became a student of metaphysics as a member of the Association of Research and Enlightenment, Charismatic Healing, and Meditation when she enrolled in Caldwell College.

Following her discovery of the power of the mind, Lo Anne became a certified teacher of Louise Hayes “Healing Your Life” course, which she taught for twelve years. This experience led to one-on-one counseling and frequent talks on “Positive Tools for Healing” on radio and to local organizations in NJ. Later she taught  “Angel Meditation” under the direction of Alma Daniel, author of  “Ask Your Angel” which led to a cable television show she produced and hosted for two years, entitled “Angels at Work”.

She is a Reiki Master and has studied many forms of hands-on healing, including Therapeutic Touch, Magnetic Healing, and Jin Shin Jyutsu. Her training as a hospice volunteer inspired her to begin journaling transpersonally with her mother after she died in 2004. The successful healing of her adversarial human relationship with her mother prepared her to use the same process after her adult daughter died suddenly in 2005.

MUTUAL AWAKENING:

Opening to a New Paradigm for Human Relatedness 

This was an evening of a Shared Mystical Awakening through experiential exercises with Patricia Albere. The edge of consciousness is evolving and it is beginning to awaken through many of us.  As it does, we feel new urgings, new attractions, restlessness, discontent and even pain.  This longing can show up as a kind of existential loneliness.  It’s not that we don’t have wonderful people in our lives but we want deeper, more intimate, more substantial, transparent, intense levels of connection with others.  We intuitively know that something can happen, something beyond what is available to us on our solo journeys, something that can only happen if we are together in the right way.  There is a desire to give ourselves more completely to life through a kind of love and creativity that is shared.  We have an itch in our souls we can’t quite scratch alone.

Patricia Albere, founder of the Evolutionary Collective, created this practice out of her awakening and masterful attunement to this dimension of consciousness.  Patricia brings decades of experience and mastery as a spiritual teacher who has worked with thousands of people. Join with us to learn about this new dimension of consciousness created through the space between people, the ‘we space’ and experience it directly.

For years I kept asking, “How do I give people access to this powerful and catalytic dimension of consciousness?” Eventually I began to discover how to do it. I found myself able to use simple exercises that would consistently give people access to true mutuality. Gradually I came to understand how to come together and initiate the miraculous unfolding of dual awakening. This was the birth of the Mutual Awakening Practice. Excerpt from MUTUAL AWAKENING free ebook at http://www.ecdownload.com

Jerem Egan Presented ~

Emotional Freedom Techniques 

The Emotion Code and Matrix Energetics

Energy Tools for the 21st Century 

EFT, The Emotion Code and Matrix Energetics

Maybe the All-Consciousness (AKA the Unified Field or Source or God/Goddess), which breathes life through everyone and everything is eternally anticipating our invitation to breathe more deeply, lovingly, wisely, playfully and powerfully through all of us! Jerem shared an experiential evening of exploring these concepts!

 EFT utilizes gentle finger tapping on acupuncture meridian points in conjunction with verbal articulation of specific phrases in order to target the specific issue. This procedure has shown to be stunningly effective in dissolving emotional “short circuits” and blockages. EFT founder, Gary Craig, says that in essence, EFT is a needle-free, emotional version of acupuncture. More information www.emofree.com

The Emotion Code accesses information on trapped emotions about which we often have no conscious awareness. Bradley Nelson, DC, founder of the Emotion Code, has composed a chart (derived from Chinese medicine), which lists 60 emotions. Through a gentle process of muscle testing, we can determine which of those 60 emotions apply to the person being tested. The trapped emotions are then released in a graceful, non-invasive procedure passing magnets over the governing vessel acupuncture meridian. The Emotion code has been shown to be extremely beneficial for a wide range of applications. More information www.healerslibrary.com

Matrix Energetics: ME founder, Richard Bartlett, DC, ND, refrains from defining Matrix Energetics, stating that when we define something, we limit it’s potential. He prefers calling ME a “consciousness technology” which constantly upgrades itself. ME is, best described as Quantum Physics meets Shamanism. Modern physicists and shamans tend to agree that although we perceive ourselves and our world as solid, we are truly only light and consciousness. Dr. Bartlett says that we actually live in a sea of Infinite Potential and that we can access that unlimited reservoir easily through the “Field of the Heart”. When we try on the idea that our world is really quite fluid, it becomes easier to stretch into the notion that instantaneous shift can and does happen – which is the premise of Matrix Energetics. Let’s have some fun accessing that ambrosial stuff together! More info: www.matrixenergetics.com

Jerem Egan, EFT-ADV, LMT, CHT, is a Holistic Practitioner who has endeavored to integrate a wide variety of techniques to benefit his clients over the past 30+ years.  He states. “In my personal journey and in working with clients for many years, I have witnessed beneficial shifts in emotional and physical health when we are able to clear energetic blockages and restore the natural flow to the body. Both the body and psyche have incredible powers of self-healing, especially when we are able to remove blocks and dense energies such as trapped emotions. Jerem has been trained in Hypnotherapy (1977), Bioenergetics (1986), Biofeedback (1990) Bio-Magnetics (1990), and Cranio Sacral Therapy (1992) and has integrated these into his practice. Currently, the centerpieces of Jerem’s work are Matrix Energetics, the Emotion Code and Emotional Freedom Techniques. He holds Certifications in the Emotion Code, and EFT and is a Matrix Energetics Certified Practitioner/Study Group Leader.

Jerem has also completed a four-year course of study in 1996 to become a Pathwork Helper (counselor). The Pathwork is a body of practical spiritual wisdom, which lays out a step-by-step journey into personal transformation and wholeness via assessment, and processing of the layers of our defenses, fears and denial.  Through the Pathwork organization, Jerem has facilitated Men’s Workshops, Relationship retreats and Pathwork Studies Classes. Jerem maintains a Holistic practice in Southern Oregon and is co-Director of Rogue Valley Healing Arts with his wife, Nell LeFebvre, LCSW.

T Love presented

Healing Through the Frequencies of Sound

This was an experiential workshop where participants relaxed, went within, and allowed themselves to fully experience the benefits of healing through the sounds and vibrations of quartz crystal singing bowls.

The workshop equated to three sound therapy sessions.

Participants were taught:

  • Why sound vibrations work
  • How sound vibrations heal all aspects of our being
  • The effects of sound vibrations in obtaining peace and calm

There are many benefits of sound therapy. It accelerates the natural healing process and provides pain relief. Listening to sound vibrations reduces stress and insomnia, relieves anxiety and depression, and imparts a deep sense of peace and well being by releasing toxins from the system. Concentration is also improved, as is mental clarity.

Sound therapy provides limitless benefits towards spiritual growth including increased awareness and creativity. It also aids in meditation, and encourages positive thinking.

Importantly, sound therapy does not interfere with, but rather complements, all other medical treatments. It may be combined with other healing methods, allopathic or holistic. Finally, it is effective for all ages and is safe for both humans and animals.

T Love is the 14th Sound Therapist in the world to be certified to play Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls specifically for healing purposes and incorporates sound therapy into all of her energy therapy treatments.

Having studied Reiki since 1993, T Love has achieved the highest level possible: LightarianTM Reiki Master. T is also a Labyrinth Facilitator and is certified in Meditation, Breath Work and Applied Positive Psychology.

T Love is a student of Quantum Physics, Cymatics and Applied Positive Psychology, and a member of the AHHA (American Holistic Health Association) and the IARP (International Association of Reiki Professionals).

She is a contributing editor for various spiritual and holistic health magazines and hosts the globally-rated, number two, weekly spiritual radio talk show: Energy Awareness on blogtalkradio.com

Reverend Diana Flanagan shared the Enneagram

Enneagram

Diana Flanagan led us through an exploration of the Enneagram. The Enneagram is an ancient geometric symbol that maps out the nine fundamental personality types of human nature and their complex interrelationships.  (Ennea means 9 in Greek).  There are nine points of view, nine value systems, nine ways of being in the world.  Each manifests its own set of attitudes and behaviors, reactions and defenses, and motivations and habits.

During the evening presentation, there was an overview of each type and assistance in determining your own type, as follows:

  • Type One: The Reformer
  • Type Two: The Helper
  • Type Three: The Achiever
  • Type Four: The Individualist
  • Type Five: The Investigator
  • Type Six: The Loyalist
  • Type Seven: The Enthusiast
  • Type Eight: The Challenger
  • Type Nine: The Peacemaker

Real self-knowledge is an invaluable guardian against self-deception.  The Enneagram takes us places (and makes real progress possible) because it starts working from where we actually are.  As much as it reveals the spiritual heights that we are capable of attaining, it also sheds light clearly and nonjudgmentally on the aspects of our lives that are dark and unfree.  If we are going to live as spiritual beings in the material world, then these are the areas we most need to explore.

Rev. Diana Flanagan is the Director of the Institute for Spiritual Development (ISD) a metaphysical church in Madison, NJ.  She is also a minister in the sister church in Sparta, NJ.  She has been involved with energy work for over 35 years in such areas as energy clearings, past life regressions, the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and Matrix Energetic, as well as reading the Tarot.

She has taught many workshops and classes on the Enneagram and the Superego incorporating several modalities for individual growth, and in the work environment, as a management consultant.  For 40 years, Diana has worked in the field of developmental disabilities, and serves currently as a Senior Coordinator at NIPD-NJ (National Institute for People with Disabilities of New Jersey), an affiliate of YAI.  Her commitment to transformational growth in herself and the world around her is evident in her willingness to serve others.

 Peter Rogen and  Rumi and the Sufi Poets:  Gambling Everything for Love

 The title of the presentation Gamble Everything for Love was the first line of one of Rumi’s four-line poems known as quatrains:

Gamble everything for love

                             if you’re a true Human Being.

                             If not, leave this gathering:

                             half-heartedness never reaches into                                                                              majesty.

 Rumi believed we live in a fragmented life, in only a small part of ourselves.  He thought Love was the strongest unifying force in the universe, and was needed by all people.

Peter Rogen’s presentation ‘whirled around’ Rumi’s teachings with commentaries, and an array of sparkling verses, poems, and stories that illustrated the narrative line: Gamble everything for love.

Peter also talked with us about Rumi’s world-views, his life and times, as well as Rumi’s first meeting with his teacher-friend, Shams of Tabriz. We discovered Sham’s influence regarding intellect vs. heart; knowing thyself and attaining truth; Love, lover, and beloved; and exoteric vs. esoteric.

Peter Rogen is a well-known presenter of Sufi Mystical Poets,

especially the work of Jalaluddin Rumi, the 13th century Sufi mystical love poet, and America’s best-selling poet. Peter has performed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (NY), the National Cathedral in Washington DC, and many top colleges. Having toured with the Mevlevi Sufis (“Whirling Dervishes”) from Turkey in 2008, Peter is a preferred presenter (in English) for the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism, and for the Iranian Cultural Society in Miami, FL. In 2012, Peter presented a series of six lectures on Mystical Love Poetry, Rumi, Rabia, and Hafiz at the University of Miami/Osher Lifelong Learning Division.

Sarah Davis – May 7, 2013  Presented THE CHILD WITHIN: A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY

 In developing our fullest potential, according to Sarah Davis, it is vital to become acquainted with our Inner Children, heal the wounds from the past, and rediscover the purity, innocence, and joyousness of our childlike energy, which is one of our deepest connections to spirit. In this workshop, we called on Spirit to guide us as we explored our Inner Children and discovered which aspects of our souls were being called for healing or rebirth. Participants became acquainted with at least one Inner Child, through guided imagery and other exercises, and began to identify the issues that this particular Inner Child was bringing to the surface.

True resolution of Inner Child issues requires in-depth work, and this workshop was only intended to give participants a taste of this process. However, possibilities for further healing and growth were offered, as well as self-care techniques for nurturing the Inner Child on a daily basis. At the end of the workshop, participants were ready to continue their spiritual journeys with a heightened consciousness of the Inner Child and the potential treasures that this kind of exploration can bring into their lives.

Sarah Davis is a psychotherapist in private practice who assists her clients in healing the wounds that prevent them from realizing their fullest potential. She sees the healing process as part of an ongoing spiritual journey and helps each client to create a closer and deeper relationship with the divine.

She has studied numerous therapeutic techniques and takes an eclectic approach to psychotherapy. Regardless of the techniques used, however, Sarah believes the most important aspects of this healing journey are the relationship between client and therapist and their willingness to invite divine guidance into the process. Sarah Davis is a licensed mental health counselor and credentialed alcohol and substance abuse counselor, MS, LMHC, CASAC.

April 2, 2013 AHA presented Karen Rose Slember “Fire Up the Light Within”

 We worked with the concept of “I AM Spirit” and “Spirit IS Love”.  During this time of Venus we had an increased yearning to not only find our passion, but to live it and become more fully who we are… Spirit.

This interactive evening began with a presentation and then “hands on work,” including a meditation and positive affirmations as a group, and individually.  We participated in exercises that enabled us to become more aware of ourselves and in tune with each other… Spirit incarnate to Spirit incarnate.

Karen Rose, an Evidential Spiritual Medium, combines over 30 years of experience working for Spirit with her professional teaching background to share her passion of Mediumship.  Her client list is international and includes celebrities, physicians, clergy, among others.  She maintains a reading office in NJ and Manhattan and teaches Evidential Mediumship, Psychic Awareness, and Metaphysical Concepts and is an ordained Minister at The Institute for Spiritual Development, Sparta, NJ.

Shaman

The Way of the Shaman ~ Reverend John Drinkard’s  “Shamanic Drumming and Journey Circle”

We rode our drums into the Spirit World in search of healing, knowledge and power.  To the Shaman’s eyes, the world around us is alive with Spirit. We learned to see with those eyes, to explore hidden worlds and to access the timeless wisdom known to our ancestors.

Shamanism is the oldest spiritual tradition known to humanity.  Over tens of thousands of years, the ancient ones all over the world knew how connect mind, body and Spirit for healing, knowledge and power. The practices they developed are known today as “Shamanism,” a term that comes from a Siberian tribal word for its practitioners: “Shaman.”  Shamans journey to hidden worlds otherwise mainly known through myth, dream, and near-death experiences.

Reverend John Drinkard’s work is rooted in the ancient ways of indigenous peoples, yet it reaches into the modern day world of quantum physics.  His Shamanic healing experience includes soul retrieval, depossession, psychopomp, divination, and extraction. John has studied extensively with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies and with prominent Celtic shamans. He also calls upon his psychic and mediumship abilities in his work.

John is an ordained minister at the Institute for Spiritual Development, an interfaith church for metaphysical living, and Vice President of their Board of Directors. He is a Vietnam Veteran who is active in healing Veterans with PTSD, a hospice volunteer who works with Veterans at the end of life and a bereavement facilitator.

John can be contacted at jvdrinkard3@verizon.net
