Linda Wojcik - The Chakra Personalities Workshop

The chakras are a spiritual guidance system with a language all their own. Linda learned the language of the chakras while clearly defining the personality inherent in each one. These personalities function as our spiritual barometers and are directly aligned to our life challenges, helping to steer us toward inner peace.

The Chakra Personalities Workshop is designed to open our hearts to the possibility that we, as human beings, have the innate ability to heal our 'self' through vibrational energies patiently waiting to be recognized, accepted and honored. It is in this moment of recognition that we begin the co-creative process to health and well being.

Linda will teach you the language of the chakras and the many ways we can begin to heal our self using vibrational medicines such as flower essences and homeopathic remedies that are connected to the individual chakras. She will also show you the foods that can help our bodies heal and those that keep us in our unhealthy patterns of behaviors.

The Chakra Personalities Workshop has the potential to change the way you think about healing and puts the responsibility of healing where it belongs.. with you.

Linda Wojcik is a Nutritional Kinesiologist, Spiritual Intuitive and Flower Practitioner. She sees clients in Danielson & North Stonington CT, by Skype, FaceTime or Phone (860) 779-7555. Visit her on the web at: She is author of two books: "Joshua's Lessons - Raising a Healthy Child in a Toxic World" and "A Taste of Sunflowers - The Natural Way to Healing Cookbook."

Adam Latin - Communication & Being Cherished

Just a few decades ago we had a much more limited amount of information. We had communities which largely all held similar belief systems. We now have more freedom to love and communicate in our own unique way. This has created an unintended distance because we no longer experience love in the same way.

Adam believes learning to more effectively communicate what makes us feel cherished bridges that distance. He offers practical ideas and concepts on how to identify and communicate the unique way each individual feels cherished.

Adam Latin's business name is The Clearest "U". He has been studying holistic healing and diverse philosophies since 1999. His focus is on helping people engage more joyfully with their present unique incarnation. For more information visit his website at

Pat Peabody - Love In The Zodiac

Love makes the world go round, so the song says. Understanding our relationships is an important part of what makes it all work. Our relationships form the cornerstone of our society and are an expression of who we are as mother, father, sister, brother, lover and friend. As we approach Valentine's Day, Love is in the air and on our mind. How do we love? We will look at celebrity pairs to determine their astrological attractiveness. We will also look at the dark side and the charts of a few individuals in the news currently charged with sexual abuse. As time allows, we will look at the charts of those in attendance. If you want a copy of your birth chart, please call or email Pat at least 24 hours prior to the meeting.

Pat Peabody has had a lifelong interest in astrology and feels it is an amazing tool for self-understanding and self-empowerment.

Erin Owens - The John F. Barnes Approach
to Myofascial Release (JFBMFR) And Tissue Memory

Every single cell in our body is a universe unto itself. Each cell is capable of storing and sharing information with all of the other billions of cells which make us who we are. When we experience trauma, whether it be physical or emotional, an energy cyst enters our body. Our fascial system is like a multidimensional web that traps this energy in our tissues. This stuck energy creates restrictions that cause inflammation and dysfunction. When we look at the body like a smooth flowing river that is always cleaning away toxins; then we can see the trauma as a dam that stops or diverts this flowing river. When the appropriate JFBMFR techniques are applied to the body (bodies) the tissues soften and release the trauma. This allows the flow of bioenergy to resume, initiating the healing process.

Erin Owens is a licensed massage therapist from the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy. She trained in the John Barnes method in 2010 and has trained with John Barnes directly since then. Erin suffered through her own pain from an auto accident and it was John's therapy which returned her to a pain free and active life and ultimately the journey as a master JFBMFR therapist. Erin can be reached by phone at (860) 790-0521.

Jen Fields - Where Are You Hiding Your Super Powers?

Using your Myers-Briggs Personality Type to claim your reason for getting up in the morning.

We are all on this earth walk for many reasons: some are specific to providing for or contributing to others, some are for the simple reason of "just being here." The Japanese have a term called "Ikigai" (sounds like "eeky guy") that translates to "a reason to get up in the morning." Our personalities, the lenses through which we see and then operate in the world, give us a map for realizing our Ikigai.

Using a Myers-Briggs personality type format, (introverts and extroverts) we'll understand our type preferences and how they can become our Super Powers. We'll discuss how to work with our non-preferred functions…and oddly enough, why we tend to have family or partners who hold those opposite preferences. If there is time, we'll review some "balancing techniques" for improving our agility in our non-preferred functions.

Jen Fields is a career and life counselor whose Ikaigi is to be present with those who have lost the awareness of their super power, and use her wealth of behavioral health and spiritual knowledge to guide them back to their true selves, their divine essence. She incorporates stories of energy work, co-creating reality, and healing to help people young and old see themselves in the truth of their gifts. She is the owner of Spark Coaching and Consulting, and can be reached at, or (860) 212-1590 for individual or group services.

Pearle Lake - Simple Ways to Connect With and Trust Your Intuition

Each of us has the intuitive "gene", meaning that intuition is accessible to all. Why is it that some people appear to be more intuitive than others? Why do some feel that it's a struggle to tap into intuition and feel confident about the outcome?

Join us for a fun informative evening as we look at the intuitive process, learn what helps us easily connect to intuition, along with simple exercises designed to trust it. We'll also look at and dispel common myths.

Time permitting Pearle will end the class with mini intuitive readings.

Pearle Lake is an Intuitive Consultant whose main focus is empowerment of the individual. A compelling interest in change led her to investigate metaphysics, affirmations and change strategies with NLP.

Randy Ouellette - Old Fashioned Fortune Telling
Remembering How It Was Done

This talk is about fortune telling long before the internet, new age shops and new age magazines. No business cards existed back then to pass out--it was all word of mouth. Tarot Reader Randy Ouellette will discuss what readings were like when his grandmother read back in the 70's. Also, he'll use some of the same tools that his grandmother passed down to him. Some audience members will have the opportunity to receive a mini-reading. Just seeing how these 'old fashioned' tools worked are useful even now!

Randy Ouellette is a third generation reader. He was given his first deck by this grandmother when he was just 14. Randy reads at psychic fairs around Connecticut and has also read in Massachusetts. You can check out his website: for more information or you can reach him at (203) 679-2485 or

Susan Cooper - Psychic Energy and Palmistry - Your Life is In Your Hands

Hear about the development of psychic energy, which Susan will demonstrate by answering questions with five playing cards and will share anecdotes from her readings. Learn how you can access energy and tap into the spirit world. Susan will also show us how to read palms and provide pointers to those in attendance. If time permits she will do some Tai Chi to demonstrate the energy in one's hands as well as talk about developing your psychic energy.

Susan Cooper learned the basics of Palmistry from her mother, the late Tracie Chappell. Her mother had many talents - besides being psychic, reading palms and cards for friends she was also an astrologer. After learning the basics and reading extensively on these subjects, Susan started reading palms and was a hit at parties. At the age of 15, she had a near-death experience which influenced her readings, which became more intense. Susan became an astrologer too and discovered more about ESP. She studied yoga, meditation, and Kung Fu which led to a better understanding of psychic energy. In the 90's she became part of the 'Psychic Friends Network'(created by Dionne Warwick).

Lisa Morrison - The Horse, the Wheel and Celtic Goddess Epona
Why are they relevant today?

For more than 7,000 years, horses have lived among humans. Revered as creatures of earth and wind, they were viewed as free and generous spirits who willingly formed an alliance with human beings. Linked to the sun and the wheel, they magically transported the Proto Indo-European peoples in wagons across the Asian Steppes into the lands of the Mediterranean Basin. Eventually, they went even further west across the sea to North America. Around the globe, horses became the magical creatures to carry shaman on their journeys through the center of the world down through the roots of the earth or up and out the branches of the great tree into space. A story survives to this day of a first horse and a young woman who merged into one being. The Celtic people remember her as Epona. She is at once wild ancestress, horse whisperer and enduringly faithful Horse Goddess who helps guard the wheel of time.

Lisa Morrison offers Past Life, Tarot, Runes, Goddess and Oracle Card Readings. She believes that readings should be a balance of humor, healing and inspiration. Lisa is an intuitive reader, a Reiki practitioner and interactive teacher in CT. Her interdisciplinary teaching is inspired by years of leading tours in Italy and journeying around the Mediterranean Sea. She teaches on-going classes at shops in CT on the Tarot and their Astrology, Numerology and Alchemical meanings. Lisa also offers Runes workshops involving natural, fairy and tree associations, as well as classes on ancient Mediterranean Goddesses, Sacred Sites, Psychometry, Intuitive Development, Female Shamanism, Medieval History, Renaissance Art, the Grail and Past Life Facilitation. Lisa can be reached at (203) 248-8767 or

Lynne Hartwell - It's Crystal Clear

Bring Balance, Harmony and Healing for body, mind and soul through the use of Crystals and Gemstones.

Crystals and Gemstones have become increasingly popular in our culture for their beauty and general healing properties. These healing tools have been in use since ancient times, however information about understanding their true healing ability was lost and is still misunderstood despite the wealth of data available about them currently.

Working with Crystals & Gemstones can be a highly Personal connection, one which can help you access a deeper level of Healing through releasing the blocks that hold you back physically, emotionally or spiritually.

During this discussion Lynne will be sharing knowledge and information that she has used for decades both personally and professionally.

• Connect at a deeper level within yourself, and unlock a deeper ability to Heal - emotionally, physically and spiritually.
• Establish a deeper connection at the heart-body-soul level through the activation of crystal and gemstone energy.

Marion Porter - Tuning Fork Therapy

Each of us is a living symphony of frequencies! Science has proven that everything in the universe is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies, or notes. Each of the organs, glands, and cells in our bodies vibrate at their own specific frequency. Sound frequencies affect everything about us. The correct vibrational frequencies can be used to heal and balance our bodies.

When your body is in perfect health and all the parts are vibrating to the correct notes, your body is like an orchestra playing beautiful music. Think of the different body parts as musical instruments all playing the right note at the correct tempo, and vibrating in harmony.

Energy flows through a healthy body through a network of meridians and chakras. Stress, negative emotions and thoughts, even the foods we eat affect the flow of energy, and can cause energy blocks. When the energy gets blocked, the body part where the blockage is can no longer play the right note at the right tempo. We can't hear our body playing wrong notes, but we will feel symptoms to let us know!

The powerful sound vibrations of tuning forks can be used to clear the energy blockages. When the correct tuning fork is placed on the organ or chakra that is out of harmony, that area will raise its vibration or pitch to that of the fork by the process of entrainment.

A tuning fork treatment is non-intrusive, there is no pain or manipulation involved. The practitioner places the tip of a tuning fork on your body, and the sound will flow through your body. This will tune up the organ system, nervous system, muscles, and bones. Every cell will pulsate, resonate, and interact with the powerful vibration. This will awaken the life energy of the cells and return you to health and harmony!

Marion is the owner of Starwinds. Her services include Tuning Fork Therapy, Reiki, Sound Healing, Access Consciousness Bars®, and Access Consciousness® Body Processes. Marion also has a show on Simsbury Community TV called 'Time for Healing.' For more information, and to watch her show, visit her website at

Bradford Tilden - Crystal Music Healing

Bradford has been studying and practicing sound healing since 2006. He has a background in classical piano performance and music composition. He graduated from Amherst College in 2002 with a BA in music composition, and UMass Amherst in 2014 with an MA in Music Composition. He has also been practicing massage therapy since 2004 after receiving certification from the StillPoint School in Greenfield, MA.

Bradford learned many things at school about himself, sound healing, and his spiritual path. His discovery of crystal singing bowls become central to his performance and sound healing practices. He learned that when singing with the crystal bowls, streams of divine energy flow down to inspire and heal the listeners, and began to perform with them allowing people to journey within. He believes everyone can create such a connection with their souls like this and so began offering private sessions and workshops to help people open up their voice to their divine essence and personal power and healing potential.

Bradford has been sharing his voice and crystal bowls at yoga studios, healing centers, and public venues, locally and globally, in the form of concerts alone or in collaboration with other sound healers and musicians for the past 7 years. He has released two albums of original piano music and two albums of sound healing music to date.

In addition to singing with crystal bowls, Bradford Tilden is a certified Universal White Time Crystal and Gemstone Healing Teacher. By using crystal layouts in conjunction with sound healing he creates powerful customized healing experiences for people. He offers private sessions and workshops in conjunction with his meditative sound healing journeys and concerts. He can be reached at (415) 420-6232 or His website is

Jan Bartrop-Babbitt - Heal Yourself: A Journey Of Self Exploration

Virtually everything that has happened to us in our lifetime(s) is recorded in our subconscious, but the cognitive rational brain has a difficult time communicating with the subconscious emotional brain. In addition, because our rational brain does not have the power to override our subconscious emotions we cannot control our emotions and attitudes. Our subconscious emotional brain is the origin of virtually all of our decisions. However, when the subconscious emotional brain is clogged up with junk that the rational brain cannot tap into, the way we feel and think and act get out of balance and we make irrational decisions. These create physical and psychosomatic illnesses.

I will guide you to the place where your 'illness' first began. We will go to the initial source of your discomfort, recognize and release it. You will have the opportunity to heal with the masters on every level to understand why you carried and kept this illness or concern, why it served you then and why it does not serve you now. YOU know how to heal yourself of every earthly concern, I will help your guides assist you in the healing. Experience is a great teacher. I invite you to experience the healing your inner guides have available to you.

Jan Bartrop-Babbitt, CHt, IACT is a licensed, certified hypnotherapist and a member of the International Association of Counselors and Therapists.

Driana Buonanducci - Trust Your Intuition

Most of us have experienced the sense of knowing things before we know them, even if we can't explain how. If only you could tap into those insights more often, right? Turns out you can, especially if you learn to identify which signals to focus on — whether a funny feeling in your stomach, or a sudden and inexplicable certainty that something is up.

Learning to be perceptive of our intuition or inner voice can be one of the most powerful things we can do, as it almost always leads us towards a state of harmony and peace, or at the very least helps guide us to the most appropriate teachings.

So how can we become better attuned to listening to our inner guidance? We will discuss how to distinguish the difference about what our mind and heart are telling us and we will put it into practice.

Driana Buonanducci is a Spiritual Medium, Psychic, Reiki Healer and a Spiritual Teacher. She has been connecting with those who have passed on since childhood. She is also experienced in Remote viewing, Angel Connection and Past Life Reading. Her story was recently published at the West Hartford Life and the Valley Press.

Karin Nemri - Heaven And The Afterlife

Down through the ages all of the world's major religions depict 'Heaven' as some sort of paradise as defined by the major scholars of 'spiritual life' of the time. But over the years as religion took hold, paradise was modified to become a haven for those who have lived their lives according to the limitations of religion. If we move past religion, which in itself encompasses one's essential need for security and safety, and return back to Spirituality, which embraces the basic essence of truth, we can begin to look at Heaven from a perspective of clarity without religious dogma to cloud the view.

Although the paradise of Heaven itself is not a misconception, some of the interpretations of what has been defined as paradise may be. In this presentation, I will describe Heaven as I know it, based on my personal near-death experience and from later communications with my Spirit Guides, who actually led me on a tour of a multitude of higher planes. While in a semi-altered state of consciousness, I was able to experience 'Heaven' from the soul's perspective, with the goal of being able to shed some light on some of the mysteries that grieving people often struggle with after losing a loved one; such as wondering what their loved ones are doing after leaving this physical world.

If you have any questions about the mysteries of the continuum of life, join me in this discussion about the dying process and the soul's progression to the higher planes of reality and learn how you can use that knowledge to gain a better understanding of your present physical life.

Karin Nemri is a Certified Spiritual Counselor, Domestic Violence Counselor, Aiijii Healer and lecturer/presenter. A hospice volunteer since 1996, she founded the Connecticut Affiliate of The Twilight Brigade: Compassion in Action. Additionally, she is currently Secretary/Treasurer and WebMaster of The Academy for Spiritual and Consciousness Studies, Inc.

Jan Bartrop-Babbitt - Spiritual Alchemy Past Life Regression

Spiritual Alchemy Past Life Regression is a time-honored therapy with a new dimensional perspective. The client is brought back to the cause of the problem so it can be completely resolved at a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Past and present issues are healed on an ethereal plane where a client meets spirit guides that assist with the healing.

Sometimes the problem goes further back, and past life regression therapy includes working with a recurring issue that appears to be from a past life. Obsessive thoughts about cleanliness may come from a death in dirt. Depression may come from a hopeless situation of poverty or slavery. As the soul returns to life over and over, the traumatic past life memories are re-created in our current life often making little sense, and keeping us from living peaceful lives.

Jan will be demonstrating the often rapid and life changing results of an Alchemy Past Life Regression. She will take the group back - each to their own individual life and to a place where a CURRENT life issue began. A suggestion will be made that the individual go to the origin of the problem. The issue will likely be different for each person - one may struggle with emotional eating, one with trust issues, and another with a fear of heights. At the end of that lifetime each person will be taken to a place of life between lives where they can review with their spirit guides the need for that lesson as well as the opportunity to remember that is does not necessarily serve in this lifetime if that is the case. Each person will have the opportunity to resolve conflict with relationships, alive or dead on an ethereal plane and make or receive amends as they find necessary. This WILL be different than any past life experience you have had. It is intended to be healing, not informational.

Jan Bartrop-Babbitt, CHt, IACT is a licensed, certified hypnotherapist and a member of the International Association of Counselors and Therapists. Her credentials include Advanced Alchemical Past Life Regression, 20+ years as a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist, Ordained Minister, and mother of two wonderful sons.

Are you looking for a breakthrough experience to re-energize and redirect your own life?

In a special partnership over the last 20 years, Master Kuthumi communicates his messages through Patrice to help people like you gain insights for greater happiness and success in life.

Lauralee Green - A Channeled Evening With Clarissa - Pleiades

Lauralee Green, clairvoyant reader and channeler, will introduce us to the wisdom of Clarissa. Clarissa is from the Pleiades, a conspicuous cluster of stars in the constellation Taurus that includes six stars in the form of a very small dipper. Greek mythology describes the Pleiades as the seven daughters of Atlas turned into a group of stars.

Clarissa is over 350 years old and originally walked the earth in the 1800's. In one of her lifetimes she was beaten so badly she died at the hands of her abuser. Since then she has such compassion for mankind, even though she knows there are many challenges to overcome in order to grow and learn here on Earth. Those who have seen Clarissa's energy describe her as an old woman that looks like a school marm dressed in a black A-line dress with granny boots. Clarissa says she is an educator, not a teacher. She requested to be one of many that impart wisdom to other planets in hopes of assisting them in understanding their circumstances and speed up their evolution.

Clarissa enjoys offering a group message, through Lauralee, to enlighten those present with a particular message. Suggestions of what you'd like Clarissa to discuss will be obtained at the beginning of the channeling session and intertwined in the message. There will be opportunity to ask personal questions. This month Clarissa would like to discuss this ever changing world and how to live in it. Life can be challenging enough without freak thunderstorms, earthquakes or extreme heat with no sight of this ending. She will also discuss why our planet is changing so greatly and how one copes with the emotional upheaval this brings.

Lauralee Green began channeling in 1990. She was practicing meditation and intuitive message work when a warm unconditional loving being entered her energy field and began to speak through her with a different speech pattern and unique tone of voice. As a spiritual teacher, psychic, healer, author, and lecturer, over the last 25 years, she has helped thousands with her psychic ability. Her first book "How to Develop Your Psychic Senses" is due out this year. Lauralee currently lives in Torrington, CT and is available for private readings by phone or in person.

Patrice Gildner - A Channeled Evening With Master Kuthumi

Patrice Gildner, intuitive reader and channeler, will introduce us to the wisdom and loving guidance of Master Kuthumi. Kuthumi is a member of a group of advanced beings sometimes referred to as ‘Ascended Masters’ who have volunteered to help promote the spiritual advancement of mankind through love and wisdom. They come to us as Elder Brothers to help guide those who are willing to open their heart to the Truth of their own divine nature and to be of service to humanity. Kuthumi provides extraordinary insights and compassionate support to those who seek him out and communicates his messages telepathically through Patrice and other ‘channels’.

The Ascended Masters are individuals who were formerly embodied on the Earth and learned the lessons of life during their incarnations. They gained mastery over the limitations of the matter planes, balanced at least 51% of negative karma, and fulfilled their Dharma (Divine Plan). An Ascended Master, in such an understanding, has become God-like and a source of unconditional Divine Love to all life, and through the Ascension has united with his or her own God Self; their I Am Presence. Kuthumi will offer, through Patrice, enlightened insights to the group. There will be opportunity to ask personal questions.

Patrice Gildner began channeling 20 years ago, though she was aware even as a child of her destiny to be of service in the world. Because Patrice’s method of channeling does not allow spirit guides to speak directly through her, the voice you hear will be hers, though clients often recognize Kuthumi’s language patterns and phrasing as distinct from those of Patrice.

You know that your thoughts influence your outer world. Did you know that objects in your space influence your inner world?

In this session, we’ll discuss how chronic pain and stress impact the body, and explore meditations that can help manage the symptoms and offset the damaging effects. We’ll briefly review the physiology, science and emotion behind pain and stress, and then practice a simple meditation that you can use right away to release the negative energy and improve your overall well-being.

Pearle S. Lake - Leaving the State of Anxiety

Have you ever felt anxious and 'trapped' in a restaurant or theater? Do you dread going over bridges? Does anxiety prevent you from doing the things you want? If this is your experience you are in good company. Millions of people feel or have felt this way. Anxiety is a state you have unknowingly entered and now want to leave.

Anxiety and panic may be the result of misinformation and misperceptions that we accept as true. It's important to know that anxiety does not necessarily originate from a traumatic event. Often it doesn't. Instead of thriving and flourishing, many people find it a chore to survive the stress it brings to their daily life.

As someone who had experienced agoraphobia for years, I can tell you that there are viable solutions to end the anxiety cycle. In this class we'll look at simple strategies that reduce and eliminate anxiety, discuss ways we can help ourselves, and participate in empowering exercises and a short relaxation session.

The information presented is not a substitute for medical advice. It provides you with ideas that you can choose to apply, or not.

Pearle S.Lake is a Professional Intuitive Consultant in practice for more than 25 years. She is a lifelong student of metaphysics and particularly resonates with the healing principles of the New Thought movement.

Marion Porter - Access Consciousness Bars™ Taster

How much of your life do you spend doing rather than receiving? Have you noticed that your life is not yet what you would like it to be? You could have all you desire and more if you are willing to receive more and maybe do a little less!

The Access Bars™ is the foundation and first building block of all of Access Consciousness® first introduced by Gary Douglas in 1990.

There are 32 points on your head which, when gently touched, effortlessly and easily release anything that doesn’t allow you to receive. These points contain all the thoughts, ideas, beliefs, and emotions you have stored in any lifetime. We call all of these points that you touch when using this modality “The Bars™”

For example, every thought you have ever had about money that you considered important, the energy and electric component of that thought is stored in the bar called “money”. There are bars for healing, creativity, sexuality, control, awareness, body, power, aging, and joy; 32 different ones in all. Each bar corresponds with that aspect or area of your life that it is named after.

By touching one bar you activate it and begin to clear away the energy locked up in that area or aspect of your life. Add in touching another bar and you not only get the “issue” from the first bar, you also begin clearing the “issues” stored in that second bar as well. You will clear all the points of view about those two bars in relation to each other, allowing for exponential change.

Just by gently touching the points of the bars you effectively erase everything you have ever stored there. This is an incredibly nurturing and relaxing process, undoing limitations in all aspects of your life that you are willing to change. By clearing all of these limitations, a whole range of possibilities begin to open up for you and life gets much easier.

The Access Bars™ has assisted thousands of people to change many aspects of their body and their life including sleep, health, weight, money, relationships, anxiety, stress, AD/HD and so much more. At worst you will feel like you have just had the best massage of your life. At best your whole life can change into something greater with total ease.

In this Taster, you will learn the basics of the Bars™ and get to experience a mini session.

Marion Porter is the owner of Starwinds, and is a Certified Access Consciousness® Bars Facilator, Usui Reiki Master, Sound Healer, Intuitive Energy Healer and Transformationalist based in CT.

Rosemary Ellen Guiley - The Interdimensional Earth

Our reality is one of a layer of parallel dimensions populated by beings who share the planet with us. We encounter these other-dimensional beings when conditions are right, or we are in portals, places where the boundaries between dimensions are thin and permeable. Portals are big and small, and may be right in your own yard or home. Rosemary shares her research on portals and encounters with a wide range of beings: fairies and nature spirits, orb energies, ultraterrestrials, mysterious creatures, reptilians, shadow people and more.

Rosemary Ellen Guiley is one of the leading experts on the paranormal with more than 50 books published by major houses on a wide range of paranormal, spiritual, and mystical topics, including nine single-volume encyclopedias. Her work is translated into 15 languages. She has worked full-time in the paranormal since 1983, researching, investigating, writing, and presenting, and teaching. Her present work focuses interdimensional entity contact experiences of all kinds, technological and mediumistic spirit communications, spiritual growth and development, problem hauntings, and “portals,” or geographic areas of intense paranormal activity. She spends a great deal of her time out in the field conducting investigations and research.

Rosemary lives in New Milford, CT. Her websites are and

Karin Nemri - The Dying Time and Beyond

As physicists search for a theory of unification or a "theory of everything" that includes life, mind, and consciousness, nature continues to go about its business creating and expanding its own reality. So much goes on behind the backs of scientists in the invisible realm of Spirit. After having had an opportunity to catch a glimpse of the Spiritual Realm by way of a near-death experience, I have been able to come to an understanding of the workings of other planes of reality and the beings that function there. In this presentation I will share the experience that I had with my father during that last two months of his life as he shifted back and forth between the physical world and the Realm of Spirit.

His interactions with Spirit beings who helped him to resolve past issues and bring meaning and closure to his life here on earth not only afforded me an opportunity to bond with him at a deep level, but also validated what I had previously been shown about our eternal existence and awesome energy system of multiple planes.

For visual effects, I will, as I always do, administer a healing treatment to an audience member using the demonstrative Aiijii healing Method, which allows people to see what goes on invisibly on other vibrational planes during an energy healing treatment, providing evidence of life beyond the veil.

Karin Nemri is a Certified Spiritual Counselor, Domestic Violence Counselor, Aiijii Healer and lecturer/presenter.

Barbara Hardie – Path Of The Soul

Follow the cycle of Birth / Life / Death. Participants will learn:

  • What we do on the other side to prepare for our journey to Earth.
  • The major secret to learning life lessons more quickly and easily.
  • What happens when life is over and we return to the non-physical world.
  • Some important aspects about death.
  • What miscarriage, stillbirth, crib death, and abortion have in common.

Participate in a Life Review Meditation to meet your Higher Self, Council Members, Angels, and/or Spirit Guides.

The information that will be presented in "The Path of the Soul" Workshop is taken from Chapters 3 thru 6 in Barbara's book "Creating Heaven on Earth -- A Guide to Personal Ascension."

Is it possible to become an Ascended Master in this lifetime? Maybe so! The answer resides within your DNA -- your Soul Contract/Blueprint. Many will ascend in this lifetime as a result of the energy shifts and the changes to the requirements from individual to mass/group Ascension. Barbara's book contains information on the following topics:

  • Why the Soul was created and the "real" reason humans are occupying Earth.
  • The path the Soul takes in preparing for an earthly life, learning life's lessons, and what happens upon our return to the other side.
  • Why suicide is NOT an option.
  • The symptoms of Ascension.
  • How to become an Ascended Master in this lifetime or prepare for Ascension in a future lifetime.
  • What life on Earth will be like in the near and distant futures.

Hardie is the Founder & Director of Angel Connections, Ordained Spiritualist Minister, Certified Spiritual Healer, Medium & Counselor, Award-Winning Author of Creating Heaven on Earth - A Guide to Personal Ascension, Lecturer, Certified Master Hypnotherapist, Member of IACT - International Association of Counselors & Therapists, and member of TNSA - The National Spiritual Alliance.

Joyce St. Germaine – The Heart Huaca Journey: Tools for Healing & Transformation

We are gifted with healing tools from the moment of our births until the end of our lives. These gifts are embedded in our energy fields with the expectation that they will be discovered, activated, and used in service to others. Often, we remain unaware of these gifts and they lie dormant and unused. These "huacas" or energy tools, are easily discovered and retrieved by another person during a shamanic journey. "Camaying", an ancient shamanic practice of blowing the essence of them into the receiver's heart and crown will be followed by rattling, sealing them into the receiver's conscious awareness.

The receiver may then journey to have their huaca reveal its properties and usefulness as a tool for transformation and healing. Each heart huaca is unique to that individual and will continue to reveal more and more of itself as the user progresses. Many people state that their healing gifts and intuitive skills are greatly enhanced as a result of this activation.

This experiential presentation is for all levels of experience and everyone will have an opportunity to both retrieve and receive a huaca. We will end with a journey for each person to connect with and learn about his/her new tool. Please bring a rattle if you have one; there will be many available for sharing.

Joyce St. Germaine, M.ED., CHt is a middle school art teacher, now in her 37th year of teaching. She is the "2011-2012 West Hartford Teacher of the Year", finalist for the "2012 CT Teacher of the Year", and a Ronald McDonald House Charities "2011 Local Hero" Joyce is active as a shamanic practitioner, hypnotherapist and instructor, psychic reader, paranormal investigator, artist, and workshop facilitator.

Jennifer Page – Reconnecting With Our Intuitive Guidance

Imagine a world in which everyone uses their intuitive abilities and lives in peace and harmony with each other and their planet.

I don't have the answers; but I have some scenarios that I'll enjoy discussing with you.

We will then focus on today and the tomorrows we can create by exploring ways to get back in touch with our own intuitive guidance. I will share techniques learned in overcoming the challenges of being intuitive as well as exercises and 'tricks' that have helped me refocus and reconnect with my intuitive guidance.

Patricia Hinchey - Oneness Blessing

"The Awakened One sees the world as himself or herself, loves and cares for the world as one's self." These are the words of Sri Bhagavan, co-founder of the Oneness Blessing world-wide movement. Come and explore what Oneness means to you and others; hear more about the Oneness teachings and receive a Oneness Blessing.

Oneness as a concept has been alive and vibrant in the metaphysical world and spiritual traditions for ages. We grasp Oneness in our minds more easily than in our hearts - it's easier to talk about it than to live it, walk it, own it. The Oneness Blessing or Deeksha is an energetic transmission of grace where the Divine reaches out and touches us enabling us to deepen our relationships with ourselves, our families, our global relatives, and all of nature. The Blessing affects us neurologically, expanding our consciousness and shifting our perceptions. It helps free us from limiting conditionings and judgments; it heals us physically, emotionally and psychologically. In this time of accelerating change and uncertainty, this blessing awakens in us a deeper spirit of cooperation and harmony.

Pat Hinchey is a Oneness Blessing giver and certified energy medicine practitioner of the Four Winds Healing the Light Body School. She helps you transform your life through physical wellness, spiritual healing, and sacred ceremony, guiding you to a place of balance and harmony for your everyday life. Pat has studied numerous energy modalities over the past two decades and is committed to our continued spiritual awakening. She offers individual sessions and workshops through her practice, Andean Bliss in Vernon, and can be reached at (860) 871-5467, or

Jim Cole - Harmonic Overtone Singing

Harmonic overtone singing (aka throat singing) is clearly singing two or more tones at once by amplifying overtones that naturally occur in the human voice. For centuries people in many parts of the world have developed overtone singing traditions. These have reached their greatest refinement in central Asia, especially in Tuva, Mongolia and Tibet. In the West, harmonic overtone singing is evolving rapidly through myriad secular, meditative, relaxation, and spiritual practices. Come experience mesmerizing overtone songs as Jim sings accompanied by guitar. A Q&A/discussion will follow the performance.

"…unique, sublime, extraordinary and experience that relaxes the mind and body as it feeds the imagination." ~ M. Jeffrey Schmidt, Massage Magazine

Jim Cole has been practicing, teaching and leading groups devoted to harmonic overtone singing since 1991. He and his group Spectral Voices are most known for their recordings of multilayered overtone singing within the reverberant atmosphere of a water tower. Jim can be reached at See for more information.

Owen James - Introduction To Gongs

"We, The Conduit, a group of vibrational alchemists, are offering a 'sound bath and inward voyage'..."

Gongs are vibrational healing and meditation tools. Experience the powerful gongs demonstrated and demystified. These gongs send vibrations through your body massaging you at a cellular level. The sound of the gong itself creates the possibility for deep automatic meditation and relaxation. Singing gongs in this respect becomes very therapeutic, providing an environment for self-healing.

Before opening The Conduit Center in East Hartford Owen and friends traveled for two years in buses, box trucks, automobiles and on tours, powered by the positive energy of the 7000 people who sat in their “gong chair.” They attended events all over the country introducing the world to the magic of gongs; or Gonging The Planet as they call it. This evening you'll have the opportunity to feel the power of the gong for yourself.

Owen James operates The Conduit Center located at 1227 Burnside Avenue, #1 in East Hartford. The center offers a variety of practitioners, workshops and meditation concerts. A selection of Tibetan Bowls, Tingsha's and CD's are available for sale in their store. Owen is also active in the Alliance For Holistic Living. He can be reached (860) 888-4314 or The website is

Jon Roe - 2012: The End, The Beginning Or Much Ado About Nothing?

The spiritual community has been talking about 2012 for over ten years. The rest of the world was introduced to it last year when the disaster movie "2012" was released. A whole industry is building around the phenomena with most metaphysical authors finding some way to tie it to their work. Books, documentaries, podcasts and channeled predictions. Earth changes, solar flares, radiation belts, galactic alignments, evolution or ascension.

You won't get definitive answers tonight as Jon leads a group discussion on the phenomena, but you may find some ideas that you haven't heard before. Bring your favorite predictions and books. What have you heard? What predictions do you favor? What should we be doing to prepare for it? And what should we be telling friends and relatives as the date gets closer? This is intended to be a sharing of knowledge.

Jon Roe is the founding publisher of The Door Opener magazine, has been active in most of the holistic organizations in Connecticut and was one of the founders of The New Age Guild of Connecticut.

Please join us for an evening of fun while learning relaxation and energy healing techniques through the art of meditation in preparation for a life that is in harmony with our free will.

We will learn how to access and utilize the energy of the Aquarian age to create loving relationships, abundance and much more.

Lois Grasso - Breathing for Healing: Transformative Breath™ Session

You breathe all day long. Why not turn your breathing into the most powerful tool available for transformation and vibrant health? Transformative Breathing™ restores and develops your truly magnificent ability to feel and heal body, mind, and Spirit.

Andrew Weil, M.D. says, “Breath is the movement of Spirit in the body."

Breathing is our most critical and intimate connection with life itself. Yet nearly 80% of us use only 1/3 of our breathing potential. Imbalanced breathing is at the core of most health issues. Transformative Breathing™ balances the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. “I am no longer compulsive about food... for the first time in my life! That last session was... ‘watershed’! I really feel connected to the Source. There are no words for how connected I feel now. I absolutely recommend Transformative Breathwork to others, so they can have the opportunity to realize their true Being.” ~ Susan McBride

Don't miss this unusual opportunity to experience Transformative Breathing for yourself. Bring a blanket, pillow, water, and warm socks or slippers. Get ready for a powerful 40-minute breath session with great music, and save 40% off your initial private session if you want more.

Lois Grasso is the founder of The OxyGenesis Institute, a non-profit 501c3 dedicated to teaching and providing natural, safe, leading-edge approaches to vibrant health. She uses EFT, Breathwork, Psych-K in her private practice as a holistic therapist, coach and spiritual counselor. She also trains practitioners in Transformative Breathwork. See for more info.

Charlie Edgarton - Past Life Regression

Unresolved events or issues from your "past" may be hampering your present evolution. Through clear recollection and reenactment with the option of doing now what you couldn't do then, can come reconciliation and empowerment.

Charlie will present the basics of Past Life Regression, with illustrative examples and handouts, of what it can do and how it can do it. If any attendee has regressed before, and would be comfortable being regressed within a roughly 15 to 20 minute time frame, in front of the gathering, Charlie would be glad to entertain that possibility as part of the evening's presentation. At present he does not do group regressions. The process he uses includes 'bardo' work which is integral and includes the reconciliation, and cleansing part of the process. The process is a guided meditation, not hypnosis.

Charlie Edgarton is a Past Life Regression practitioner as well as a professional Astrologer. He began his study of Astrology under Isabelle Hickey in the early 70's. That was also the time he started working with past life regression. He may be reached by email at or by phone at (860) 573-0410.

Madeline Bombetto – Metta

Metta is the Pali word for friendship or lovingkindness. It is taught as a meditation that cultivates our natural capacity for an open and loving heart. With its roots in practices said to have been taught by the Buddha himself, metta is traditionally offered along with meditations that enrich compassion, joy in the happiness of others and equanimity. These practices lead to the development of concentration, fearlessness, happiness and a greater ability to love.

The practice begins with the meditator cultivating loving kindness towards themselves, then their loved ones, friends, teachers, strangers, enemies, and finally towards all sentient beings.

Tonight Madeline will teach us this meditation practice. You'll have a new tool for transforming your life.

Madeline Bombetto's West Hartford healing practice is Gabriel Associates. She has been a Hartford area healer and teacher for over 25 years.

Madeline Bombetto – Psych K

PSYCH-K stands for Psychological Kinesiology. It is a self-help tool developed by Robert M. Williams in 1988 with the goal of changing beliefs in the subconscious mind. Subconscious beliefs are often the “invisible” cause of self-sabotaging behaviors. The PSYCH-K program was designed to help people change the way they feel, behave and interact in life.

In PSYCH-K, kinesiology is used to communicate with the subconscious mind. Specific body postures and movements cause neuron firings in both hemispheres of the brain, creating a state in which change can more readily occur. Using this method, it is possible for subconscious beliefs to be recognized, and a debilitating belief could be replaced with one more desirable.

A unique aspect of PSYCH-K is that a “permission” step is included to ensure that the changes are in the best interest of the person at that time. Also, there are several verifying steps to catalogue the changes taking place. This is used to satisfy the skepticism of the conscious mind.

Madeline Bombetto's West Hartford healing practice is Gabriel Associates. She has been a Hartford area healer and teacher for over 25 years. In addition to Psych-k she offers hypnotherapy, spiritual counseling, energy work, rebirthing, journeying and is a medical intuitive. She can be reached at (860) 523-1234 or
