Full Moon Spirit Circle
Friday Nov 23rd 6pm
Sachin Hazen
We will celebrate the Full Moon and use its powerful energy for personal growth and spiritual development, focusing on developing intuition and the “heart’s knowing.”  Music, ritual, discussion, meditation, and essential oils are included. 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 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. This event is part of holistic psychotherapist Sachin Hazen’s Living as Gods series. See http://keikiananda.com/.
Tickets $15
