Group Channelling Healing Circle

with Linda Nardelli, Therapeutic Counsellor, Hypnotherapist, Channeller & Intuitive Healer

Sat, October 21, 2017  at 1:00pm to 6:00pm

Bask in the richness of crystal bowl sound-healing, channelled guidance and energy healing, and restore your body and soul.

Discover for yourself the spectacular experience of receiving direct channelled message given to the group and to you personally. Connect to the co-creative synergy between participants and feel the resonance that is naturally part of the group dynamic.

The healing circle is a precious environment designed to enhance your spiritual life and nurture your well-being, and the gifts are many…

  • Learn about spiritual mysticism – the path of embracing all of you, body and soul.
  • Shift out of limiting beliefs that prevent you from achieving your full potential.
  • Discover the rich guidance inherent in your thoughts and emotions, and your desires.
  • Open your receiving channel to receive what you long for.
  • Increase your vital energy and channel creativity in all areas of your life.

“The group channeling is expansive on multi-dimensional levels in the way the spirits specifically intuit each person’s need, and the accumulative effect that all of Linda’s gifts have on the group as a whole. Linda is a most sensitive host that creates a comfortable and inclusive environment. Her playing the chakra bowls is penetrating, her toning unearthly, and her spirit guides powerful and most charming in their general address to the group.”
~ H. Klassan

Speak to Me Like you Love Me:

Compassionate Conflict Resolution with Simon Beck, MEd, RCC

Fri, October 27, 2017  at 7pm

We often want our relationships to be ones in which we can live our vision of friendship, love, trust and connection.  Yet, often, these are the very places where we act in ways that are not caring or compassionate.  What goes wrong?

This presentation will introduce ideas and tools that will help you to behave and express yourself in ways that are more in line with how we want to treat others, ways that are closer to your vision of mutual respect, care and choice.
We will also look at what to do when loved ones behave in ways that don’t meet our needs for trust, respect and choice. We will consider how we stand up for our values without being defensive or attacking.
