Friday May 25 6 pm
A series of presentations, discussions, and circles led by holistic psychotherapist and intuitive Sachin Hazen. Our thoughts and beliefs create our reality, our experience of life. This is a god-like quality. Our task is to do this consciously, as opposed to unconsciously. We must create a life we want, not one based on unconscious beliefs and fears. We support each other to grow, develop, and become as we were designed to be: conscious, aware, kind, wise, intelligent, prosperous, joyful, blissful, beautiful, excellent, fearless, strong, powerful, and insightful. We will raise our vibration, releasing limiting beliefs, manifesting what we want. Music, meditation, and essential oils are part of each session. Tickets $15 (click on date of class to register)

Animal Communication Introduction
Sunday May 6th 10:30 am – 2:30 pm
Kim Tallcouch, RMT
Animal intuitive communication can improve and strengthen the bond between caretaker and pet. It can help to increase participants’ awareness of their pet’s physical and emotional well-being, while aiding them in understanding their companion’s methods of coping with physical pain, stress, fear, past trauma, and anxiety. Intuitive communicate can help participants to realize the healing and guidance their pet may be bringing into their life. Everyone has the capacity to increase their level of intuition and understanding with pets through love, intention, and focus. The elements of this class include: preparing attendees to open the channels of intuitive communication with their animal companion; assisting them in becoming more aware of the connection between their pet’s behavior and what the pet may be trying to tell them; and examining the ways in which animals serve to act as guides or messengers for us. There will also be a guided meditation to help deepen the participants’ connection and perspective of the animal kingdom. Tickets $40.00
