Summer Series Lectures
1. Realigning Your Vital Life Force With Homeopathy and Bach Flower Remedies
Are you curious about homeopathy and Bach flower remedies, wondering what they are exactly and how they work? In homeopathy, symptoms are the expression of the misalignment of our vital (life) force. And, since we are all different, the experience of the illness warrants a specific medicine for the expression of disease. Bach Flower remedies are similar to homeopathy but follow different principles. In this session, you will explore the differing perspectives of disease and the experience of dis-ease, as well as learn the basic principles and differences between Homeopathic and Bach Flower remedies and begin to see flowers very differently.
When: Wednesday July 8, 2020, 7:00 to 9:45 pm
With: Dr. Alexia Georgousis, Naturopathic Doctor, CPC
2. AFTERLIFE EXPLORATIONS – July 22
More and more credible individuals are revealing what they have gone through in their near- death experiences. What are those experiences saying about the afterlife? This evening will explore the latest revelations and evidence for a world beyond death indicating some kind of continuity of consciousness. What are the possibilities? How do these near-death experiences relate to consciousness in this life? Is it possible to prepare for a transition to an ideal afterlife? How does our understanding of “the other side” lead to being able to live a more meaningful life now?

6. RELATIONSHIPS AND KARMA – August 26
Many of us find ourselves repeating the same patterns, whether it is in a romantic relationship or relationships with family, friends or coworkers. If we stop and look, we realize that these patterns are also repeated by many of our family members. We may have inherited these characteristics from our ancestors but do not realize how they continue to affect our lives today. Join us for an evening of discussion and learn how to break ancestral patterns and heal the karma.

7. WHAT EVERY WOMAN WANTS TO KNOW ABOUT MEN AND WHAT EVERY MAN WANTS TO KNOW ABOUT MEN – September 2nd
Women are often reprimanded for being complicated creatures, but the truth is that men can be just as guilty of sending mixed signals. Our own internal signals oft times are mixed. We have more in common than different, but the differences drive us apart. The Male Archetype is aggressive, angry, and very protective but in reality, men would love to receive compliments and recognition for what we do. Women are seen as nurturing, loving, intuitive and creative, men are not seen possessing these qualities. Men are solo hunters and isolationists when in pain. It is time for dialoging but this time not man to man or woman to woman but woman and man to each other. Join me as we get this dialogue revved up.
When: Wednesday September 2, 2020, 7:00 to 9:45 pm
With: Gord Riddell, Registered Psychotherapist, Co-founder, Transformational Arts College, Ordained Spiritualist Minister, Spiritual Director, Life Coach, and a man.
