Aphrodite Awakens:  An Exploration in Sensuality, Self-Love and the Sacred Feminine
Hosted by Marcia Canestrano
KRI Certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher, Akashic Record Reader and Divine Feminine Channel

Saturday, May 6,  12:30pm-2:30pm

In springtime, the world awakens to its growth, vibrancy and beauty once again.  In this time of fertility and creativity, we will explore the Aphrodite nature within us.  Aphrodite is the Greek Goddess of Love, Beauty, Sexuality, Death and Wisdom.  She is considered of force of nature through her unusual birth and life perceptions.  She embodies the Sacred Feminine energy that defies conformity and celebrates in wild, open-hearted divinity.

In this workshop, we will rediscover our relationship with our wisdom, beauty, self-love, sensuality and sacred feminine nature through exploration of the sacral and heart chakras in relationship to the Aphrodite nature within us using Kundalini Yoga, meditation, visualization, oracle cards, divine feminine guidance and more!

Mediumship Group Sitting
Hosted by Stephanie Harris
Sunday, May 21st, 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.!event-payments/kcb37 

$35 advanced registration, $40 at the door. Seating is very limited.
