ENERGETIC ELDER -NEW COURSE-

We are living in a unique and unprecedented time in human history. In a few years, one in four people in Canada will be 65 years of age and older. The post-World War ll era created a surge in child births and those children, the last of the Baby-Boomers are arriving, over the next decade, at their elder life phase.

Innovations in medicine, standards of living, education and employment have all contributed to extending our life span. However they also have contributed to a world of denial about aging and also denial of dying. While we are blessed to reach such ages, many of us didn’t, we really are not prepared for the time we have as an elder. This course addresses areas we can learn from, explore differing ideas and discover the personal power of our years as an elder.

This course is for everyone who are/will age and for anyone in denial about aging. This course is for anyone who works with elders or have family entering their Elder years.

This course is for people at any point in their Lifespan, consider it advance planning! It is for Therapists, Counsellors, Caregivers and anyone involved with an aging population.

MEDIUMSHIP COURSE -NEW COURSE-

The Oracle of Delphi, the Witch of Endor and the woman at the well meeting Jesus, all are examples of mediumship whose stories have survived for thousands of years. Our belief in and fascination with mediumship and the after-life is as prevalent today as it was centuries, even millennia ago.

However, British King (James l (England)/James 6 (Scotland)), based on gossip and rumours, would launch a devastating witch hunt throughout Great Britain, that would eventually spill over into the New World colonies, known as the witch trials at Salem, Massachusetts. The arrests in England resulted in about 600 trials but in Scotland as many as 4,000 to 6,000 people, mostly women, were tried and many were executed, the exact numbers are unknown.

These events stigmatized any expression of mediumship including healing work for decades. The mid-1800’s saw 4 women follow their inner guidance and showed their abilities to the world. Namely the Fox Sisters who brought Spiritualism and mediumship into the forefront in the English-speaking world, Madame Blavatsky (a former Spiritualist) gave us Theosophy and Mary Baker Eddy would found the Christian Science Church and their belief in healing through prayer. These women overcame the social stigma of spiritual abilities.

In some ways, the same stigma is still with us. People are hesitant to admit that they know things about others even before the other person does. Fear has been fostered by religious organizations affiliating mediumship with evil spirits. When we don’t understand something, must we condemn it first??

This course is experiential and will lift the participants up from a place of hiding their abilities to owning and embracing those abilities. Mediumship expressed through healing, clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, psychometry, inspirational speaking, writing and art will all be worked with. Overcoming fears that may be present and moving through any blockages that may be holding your mediumship abilities back.

Who is this course for? – Anyone with a committed interest in developing their mediumship skills. Best for those who have already had experiences but find them hit and miss and/or have trouble regulating the flow of energy and information. Anyone with experiences that were frightening and may be holding you back.

When- Starts Thursday, June 30, 2022, at 7 pm to 9 pm
