Mediumship Group Sitting
Hosted by Stephanie Harris
Sunday, July 9th 4:00-6:00pm
Stephanie's Mediumship Group Sitting, commonly referred to as a "Spirit Circle", is limited to ten people, so that the group is small enough to allow individual time with each person. Please note that this is a public group setting and is a different experience than that of a private session. The group settings are held in a warm and intimate atmosphere, where new friends are often created from this shared experience.
Individuals in the group will receive messages from their loved ones who have passed on. As Stephanie links with Spirit, she will move through the group in a random manner as she delivers messages from Loved Ones. The experience of a group sitting is beautiful and touching. Above all, this is a time to connect with loved ones, so that they can communicate with you in their own way, with messages of Love, Hope and Healing. Join us with an open heart, open mind, and open to receive.
Stephanie likes to say that she acts as the bridge between the spiritual and the physical worlds, with the intention of healing both worlds.
The sittings typically run approximately two hours. The sitting starts promptly, so you’re encouraged to arrive at least 15 minutes early, so Stephanie can use all the time available.
Please register in advance directly with Stephanie. https://app.acuityscheduling.com/catalog.php?owner=12314733
$35 advanced registration, $40 at the door. Seating is very limited.
Summertime Soul-filled Soundbath
Hosted by Manuka
Sunday, July 23rd 4:00-6:00pm
Manuka facilitates a space of deep meditation, emotional release, and healing through sound vibration by creating an environment that participants can trust and openly release stored or unwanted energy in. We begin with an intention and a group "om" to join and center the energy of all participants. We then immerse participants in the ancient and sacred vibrations of the Didgeridoo, Duduk, Crystal singing bowls, and Vocal harmonization. We also take time throughout the session to walk around and perform hands-on Reiki and Chakra balancing energy work, allowing the universal life force energy of Reiki to guide the practitioners hands to wherever they are most needed.
Each session is unique because each group of participants and the energy involved is unique. We do not prepare music before hand as the session depends greatly on what is felt and picked up by the practitioners. These sessions tend to be intense, and highly effective in evoking heavy blockages from within to the surface for clearing.
$20 advanced registration, $30 at the door, space permitting
