Unlocking the Soul’s Purpose

Presented by William Meader, renowned international teacher of Esoteric Philosophy/Esoteric Astrology/Esoteric Psychology, returning to Pittsburgh

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm TUESDAY. Doors open 6:15 pm for light reception & CASH bar.

What are the steps that lead the Soul toward eventual enlightenment and perfected expression?

For those who are consciously walking the Path, the question of spiritual purpose is a topic of interest and inquiry, though the answer often seems locked away and difficult to grasp. In this presentation, William Meader will examine this profound question from several angles. The search for right relationship; divine indifference, and the establishment of a point of tension, will be emphasized as keys that can reveal the soul’s destiny. These topics (and others) will be presented with the understanding that the soul’s purpose invariably pertains to the new civilization that is emerging before our eyes.

William Meader is an international teacher of The Esoteric Philosophy (Ageless Wisdom). He presents a variety of esoteric topics to audiences in Europe, the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. He has authored 'Shine Forth: The Soul's Magical Destiny' and numerous articles focused on esoteric subjects.

His work—often described as a ‘next step’ in spiritual evolution—assists students in the refinement of the higher abstract mind in order that they might align with the soul’s creative intention, thereby coming en rapport with the One Life and the ashram (inner home of the soul). William’s gentle humor, sensitivity and deep understanding of the spiritual path is appreciated by dedicated students of the Esoteric Philosophy—also known as the Ageless Wisdom —worldwide.

Healing Through Spirit * Living In Love

Reverend Jenn Shepherd, ordained Spiritualist Minister, Medium and Author

Healing at its core is knowing and coming into alignment with Self and one's own personal connection to the Universe.

In this lecture, Reverend Jenn Shepherd will give demonstrations of both healing and mediumship, and explain what she has learned through her work in her chosen modalities. She will discuss the myths and perceptions of various modalities and will show how the study and practice of mediumship fits into the Healing aspects of self as well as those served on a soul level from the other side of life.

As an ordained Spiritualist Minister and a recognized medium and healer, Jenn's practice and knowledge of energy with QiGong and Reiki has greatly aided in her mediumistic development. Years of insight and training (in particular with Master Robert Peng), has allowed Jenn’s connection with spirit to blossom and has helped lead her to the study and practice of evidential mediumship

Evidential mediumship looks at the evidential aspects of spirit communication, as well as evidential proof of the continuity of life. It's a practice that expands beyond the current variants of mediumship  by way of higher states of consciousness, mind focus and energy techniques.

Jenn has authored a  book of essays on Healing, Life, Mediumship and Spiritual Growth.  She keeps a blog, lectures (regularly at Unity in Edinboro and The White Butterfly) and teaches Spiritual Development through Spiritual Healing and Mediumship, and has recently begun teaching children meditation in collaboration with Lorraine Murray of Teach Children Meditation. 

Jenn is an ordained Spiritualist Minister and the Spiritual Leader of Unity in Edinboro, PA and the co-founder of Bolts of Love in Erie, PA. She is a trained and certified Spiritual Healer as well as a Reiki Master and QiGong Healer. As an Evidential Medium she teaches Spiritual Development, Healing and Mediumship. Her book is entitled "Healing Through Spirit * Living in Love". She also produces a YouTube Channel in addition to her online Blog.

A Soul's Journey

Presented by by Deneen Marlette Joyner, Transformational Speaker and Author

A story of vulnerability, courage and power of a hostage to emotional pain as she transforms to a modern day warrior daughter.

Indigenous cultures such as the Aborigine, Native American and African peoples believe that our souls hold a very powerful and purposeful responsibility surrounding our ability to maintain inner balance and communication with our mind, body and spirit. The soul also is thought to be a recorder of all life events, becoming a reservoir or holding tank for unresolved emotional pain and unprocessed traumas. It is believed that emotional pain and trauma hold the most space within the soul; that is why healing is imperative! Soul clearing is a spiritual process whereby the soul must purge to create space for divine abundance. A process that awakens us and ties us back in remembering a forgotten soul contract and to master life lessons connected to healing our soul wounds; the unresolved emotional pain from our past.

Most people’s failure to purge their soul through healing will lead them to hit rock bottom.

Deneen Marlette Joyner, an Indian woman of both Native American and West African descent, will take the audience on a spiritual journey as she recounts her soul’s journey leading up to the evening she surrendered and asked God to become her teacher in healing her life. A journey ultimately leading her to heal decades of emotional pain and arrive at meeting the spiritual requirements of a century-old divine spiritual inheritance tied to familial reincarnation or linage rebirth. (A spiritual act of divine proportion whereby a past ancestor spiritually inhabits the soul and spirit of a descendant within a family’s lineage).

Deneen is a proud native of Pittsburgh, PA and is an author, wounded healer and transformational public speaker who draws upon spiritual gifts surrounding; shamanism, mediumship, spiritual intuition, channeling and clairvoyance in order to offer others a new lens for viewing an age-old problem: emotional pain.

The core of her method is centered on her ancestor’s 300-year legacy in healing lost souls, blended with her contemporary approach to self-guided healing. She is spreading her message of inspiration and hope through spiritual advising, teachings and writings.

Today Deneen steps forth as a luminary on emotional pain, using the educational component of her brand. Chosen to be empowered for sharing ancient wisdom from her ancestors with individuals and audiences, she teaches how to partner and utilize emotional energy itself as a catalyst for self-exploration, personal empowerment and spiritual enlightenment.

Deneen is the author of the newly released book: "Soul Wounds and Sacred Revelations, A Warrior Daughter’s Awakening to Pain and Destiny." She holds B.A. and M.A degrees in Psychology and Adult Education and Instructional Training with an emphasis in Curriculum Design.

Damanhur: Laboratory for Social, Spiritual and Environmental Research, through the eyes of an Artist

A 2 1/2 hour presentation with Q & A by Formica Coriandolo, Ambassador of Damanhur

6:30 pm 9:00 pm

Green Heiress Holistic Health

209 Commercial Avenue SUITE A, Aspinwall, PA 15215

$20 at door

Over the next 12 months, OMA will be scheduling  classes from the University of Damanhur's Mystery School, covering their first-year courses. These classes will be taught by instructors from Damanhur brought here for this unique purpose and mission.

This Tuesday evening OMA is hosting a special Introduction to Damanhur. Join us on a journey into Damanhur, Europe’s largest spiritual eco-community, how it was created and why art is so strategic to its endeavors.

Formica Coriandolo, a citizen of Damanhur for thirty-five years, Ambassador for Damanhur’s Foundation, and one of the community’s most prolific self-made artists shares how artwork has been used as the foundation of its community creation. She explains how In Damanhur, members continually utilize art in order to increase community well-being and embrace diversity, as well as to process conflict. Read more about Formica.

The Damanhur community has created The Temples of Humankind, heralded in the press as “The Eighth Wonder of the World.” An extraordinary subterranean eight-chamber temple complex features remarkable paintings, mosaics, sculpture and glass art—all created to celebrate universal spirituality. The Temples were initially created within the solidarity of a community who were not primarily artists. Yet, within a field of trust and non-judgment, the miracle of the Temples continues to astound and grow, and every individual has the opportunity to create and discover the artist within.

Find out more about OMA's scheduling of classes from the University of Damanhur's Mystery School over the coming months.

The Dream Class: Redesign Your Dreams

A 2-day weekend workshop to gain a new understanding of how to interpret the dream world and consciously guide your dreams.

9:30 am-4:30 pm Saturday & Sunday

Taught by Formica Coriandolo, Ambassador of Damanhur, Italy

Dates: September 8th & 9th
Times: 9:30am to 4:30pm with 1 hour break, both days

Location: 221 Whetherburn Drive, Wexford, PA 15090
Price: $250 Tickets on Sale Now! 

We all dream, even if we do not remember our dreams. We are always dreaming, even when we are awake. In many languages around the world, the word "dream" means both to dream during the night and also to design your life's projects and bring them to life!

Would you like to expand your understanding of what happens during sleep in order to create your daily life in a completely different way? Are you passionate about the dream dimension, but don’t know how to guide yourself through it?

Join us for this unique workshop from the School of Dreams by Damanhurian researcher Formica Coriandolo, and discover more about this ancient way of designing your life.

In Damanhur, the ability to dream has been cultivated and studied by collecting information and practices transmitted over millennia from peoples around the world. From this research, a “School of Dreams” was created over the last 40 years. In this School we explore ancient and modern knowledge about the power of dreams in order to transform your life. This weekend seminar now offered was developed to provide an introduction to a completely new approach  to life and the realization of your dreams. If you believe that sleep is much more than just rest, this workshop can offer a confirmation and guide you to a new understanding of life.

In this class you will come into contact with knowledge about the nature of not only dreams but also reality in order to begin to direct your energy towards the dream journey. Awakening the awareness that we are dreaming, while we sleep, is the first step towards lucid dreaming.


Formica Coriandolo
Since childhood, Formica has been a passionate researcher in the field of dreams. She now shares her vast body of knowledge, much of which is uniquely informed by her dream work within Damanhur, leading seminars around the world on how to develop lucid dreaming and the power of intuition.

A native of Florence, Formica has been an artist all of her life. She moved to Damanhur at the age of 21, where she engaged in sculpture and painting for the Temples of Humankind, Damanhur’s internationally celebrated underground work of art. In 1984, as the construction expanded, she learned Tiffany style art glass from a Florentine master artisan and initiated the creation of the now internationally acclaimed stained glass works of the Temples.

From 1999 to 2006, Formica was one of the elected Guides of Damanhur, with responsibility for coordinating the activities and development of the entire Federation. Since then, she has been responsible for coordination of outside researchers, sociologists and filmmakers, all interested in understanding and portraying the unique social and spiritual experiment of Damanhur.

Formica today works as an Ambassador of Damanhur in the World and is a Gaia Education certified Ecovillage Design Education coordinator. Together as part of a group of Damanhurian women, Formica explores the mythology of Damanhur through music and voice, composing songs and ballads.

A great lover of Nature, she lives in a tree house built around the trunk and branches of a beautiful oak; she is surrounded by the music the tree itself produces through the innovative “Music of the Plants” device developed in another unique line of research within Damanhur over the past forty years. 

About Damanhur
Damanhur is a living laboratory for the future of humankind. It is a Federation of Spiritual Communities, with its own Constitution, culture, art, music, currency, schools and use of science and technology. The Community was founded in 1975 from the inspiration of Falco Tarassaco (1950-2013). His enlightened and pragmatic vision created a fertile reality based on solidarity, sharing, love and respect for the environment. Damanhur is perhaps best known for its extraordinary subterranean work of art and architecture, a cathedral known as the Temples of Humankind. The Temples have been profiled on international television as the "Eighth Wonder of The World." This complex was entirely dug by hand into the heart of the mountain. Decorated with mosaics, stained glass, sculptures, wall paintings and other works of art, it is dedicated to the awakening of the divine spark present within every human being.

OMA’s primary goal is to create collaborative conversations regarding  the impact of trauma on one’s cognitive, emotional, and physical development as well as their interpersonal relationships and life choices. We will strive to identify needs and plan for systemic change in youth development and education programs in the Pittsburgh area.

Through collaborative conversations and learning sessions, we can grow and develop greater awareness about the needs that exist for healthy youth development. We are dedicated to teaching youth how to recognize and effectively manage their emotions in order to mitigate and prevent harmful effects of early childhood adversity and trauma. In order to do this, adult mentors and educators must be trained in these skills.

Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to learn a variety of holistic skills that can be used to support the healthy development of mind, body, and spirit—their own and that of youth.

We are committed to transparency, openness, honesty, respect, trust, active engagement, collaboration, communication, inclusivity and equity for all.

 

Beliefs: We believe that healing can only take place when the silence is broken, and that healing is possible when we work in collaboration. Through this collaborative model, and with the intentional creation of community partnerships, we believe we can rebuild an integrated support system for our youth so as to support the proactive development of resilience.

Vision: We envision a world in which all youth and all individuals have access to best practices that support and develop resiliency and the ability to grow in their understanding of connectedness to themselves, each other, and our earth. We envision a world in which all youth are supported and know—in deep and lasting ways—the interconnectedness of all living beings, and the ways in which we are all whole and all belong.

"Empower Your Third Eye" with Bonnie Hassan

Expand your sixth chakra to transcend your personal mind and access the universal mind

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm. Doors open 6:15 pm for light reception & CASH bar.

The Twentieth Century Club

Your Third Eye, located between your physical eyes in the middle of your forehead, is often referred to as the ‘chakra of wisdom.’ As you grow and develop, this chakra becomes activated. As it does so, your intuitive gifts begin to show themselves.

You also develop discernment and the ability to detach from subjective perceptions and see the ‘bigger picture.’ You are more able to move with the flow of life, rather than getting caught up in the details. As you work to raise the vibration of this chakra, you gain a greater ability to transcend the ‘personal mind’ and access the universal mind.

However, if your Third Eye is blocked for some reason (old messages from the past, experiences from past lives, old beliefs, etc.), you may find it more difficult to experience the gifts of this chakra. Join Bonnie Hassan, MSW, RKRM for a guided meditation designed to help heal the originating source of any blocks (known and unknown) that may exist and give you the opportunity to more fully enjoy the benefits of an expanded and opened sixth chakra.

Bonnie will follow the meditation with a shamanic-style healing session where Native American spirits may speak to your soul in an intimate language only your soul comprehends. The vibrations of drums and rattles will further empower the healing energies of Reiki as your guides and angels offer wisdom and guidance for your continued expansion. Say yes to Spirit and begin the process of healing more deeply so you can raise your vibration and claim all your gifts! The world needs you to be your best self. You came here to be just that! Isn’t it time you took this next step?

Bonnie Hassan, Reiki Master, Medium and Psychotherapist, first experienced God’s direct intervention in her life when a prayer uttered in church was answered in an amazing way just a few short hours later. Since that time, Bonnie’s journey has been directed by Divine Guidance in many ways, from the opening of a private healing practice to a 14,000 mile solo road trip to Alaska and back.

With a Master’s Degree in Social Work, a B.S. in Human Resource Management, and seventeen years’ experience practicing and teaching Reiki, Bonnie travels around the United States providing unique and powerful healing sessions for both groups and individuals as she combines her expertise and training with her intuitive gifts. When she is not traveling, Bonnie offers group and individual healing services via teleconference and teaches classes and workshops near her home in Nashville, Tennessee.

Bonnie has been practicing and teaching Reiki since 2000. She is a certified Master in the Usui/Tibetan, Karuna® and Sekhem-Seichim-Reiki Systems and has channeled a new form of Reiki called Transformational Reiki, which is a blend of Native American and Japanese energies.

As a mental health therapist, Bonnie’s specialty areas include grief and loss issues, foster care and adoption, and family therapy. She earned her Master’s Degree from the University of Pittsburgh, and her undergraduate degree from Geneva College.

Bonnie believes that if we want the world to change, we have to change/heal ourselves first. She frequently tells her clients: “If you want to go higher, you have to dig deeper. When you step out of your comfort zone, you step into your Power Zone!”

You can reach Bonnie by phone at 412-277-0755 or email her at bonnie@bonniehassan.com To learn more about Bonnie, visit her website at www.bonniehassan.com You can also follow her on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/travelingmystic

"Drawn From Troubled Waters" by Michael Williams

A message and testimony of how dark experiences can often lead us to a brilliant light of hope and opportunity

7:00 pm Event begins. Doors open at 6:15pm for light reception and CASH bar.

Michael Williams came from New York City's Foster Care System and discovered that he was known by a different name and separate family from the one he had always known. What began as Foster Care Placement led to a Closed Adoption which concealed a significant chapter of his life.

This is the story of Michael's journey of recovering what was sealed off from him by reason of Closed Adoption Legislation and how he was able to recover this knowledge and create an opportunity to teach others how to retrace, reconnect, and reunite with their roots to heal from the pain of rootlessness.

In his work, Michael educates families on how to retrace, reconnect, and reunite family and kinship ties through the process of Direct-To-Consumer DNA Testing.  With his strong passion for family, Michael's work caters to the holistic needs of family and community across all walks of life.  May is National Fostercare Awareness Month and he'd like to share a personal testimonial about how he survived the trauma of Foster Care and displacement to a place of assurance of purpose and groundedness.

"Drawn from Troubled Waters" by Michael Williams

Drawn from Troubled Waters is a musical narration about how I began my adoption, search, and reunion journey in search to recover chapter one of my life concealed by rigid closed adoption laws. Audience members will embark on a storytelling journey of how I managed to discover the truth of my adoption by unearthing an amended birth certificate depicting falsified birth facts as truth and how that set me off on a journey to retrace my biological roots and family history through reuniting with my biological immediate family. This journey led me to discover a family connection to a pre-civil war adoption story found in North Carolina’s 1851 ‘Orphans Court’ case that parallels to my actual adoption story 129 years before I was born. The overarching themes in this story touches upon the trauma from the loss of knowledge of family history and kinship ties, making peace with the past to create a new life narrative of self love, and healing from the pain of rootlessness by tapping into the ancestral knowledge found through DNA Mapping technology and physically traveling to the South. The month of May is National Foster Care Awareness and this presentation is a tribute to the historic legacy of Child Welfare in America via the Orphan Train Movement which lasted from 1850-1933.

Michael Williams is the founder and director of Sankofa Genealogy Tech Seminars, LLC, teaching genetic genealogy testing strategies, genetic genealogy literacy, and designing genealogical research treatment plans for his clients since 2013. As an international speaker and lecturer Michael has recently presented in Canada and the U.S. lecturing on African-American 19th Century Slave Ancestral Research in Early American Southern History in conjunction with Genetic Genealogy research strategies, and presenting at Smithsonian museums, Regional, National and International heritage conferences, Universities, Historical Societies, and University based Family Support Centers. Michael is a New York Adoptee who has been in reunion for 20-years and is known for his unique adoption, search, and reunion story which has been featured in the Adoption Today national print publication ‘Resource Section’ in 2014, Publish America 2011 Book Review, Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers Adoption Council Newsletter, CBS Pittsburgh Lynn Hayes Freeland TV Show, Washington D.C. based ‘Research At The National Archives and Beyond Blogtalk Radio, KQV commercial AM Radio Pittsburgh Profiles with Elaine Effort, and Carnegie Mellon University One-To-One syndicated broadcast with Kevin Amos. Michael is an alum of Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Communications Media and a Minor in Pan-African Studies.

Marianne Williamson: Love America Tour

Marianne Williamson discusses how a revolution in consciousness paves the way to both personal and national renewal.

05:45 pm 09:00 pm

The Twentieth Century Club

4201 Bigelow Boulevard, Pittsburgh, PA. 15213

Bill Deasy performs live ahead of Marianne Williamson - Doors open 5:45 pm, General Admission seating is first-come, first serve during Bill's performance.

* SPONSORSHIPS AVAILABLE *

ABOUT THE EVENT
The times in which we’re living are dramatic and unstable, yet pregnant with new possibilities for a future released from the shackles of fear. At a time when fear and hatred have been turned into a political force, is it possible to harness the powers of love and decency for political purposes as well?

In fact we must, for the survival of our democracy depends on it. Our task is to create a new, whole-person politics, breaking free of a paradigm based on a decidedly outdated view of the world and embracing a more enlightened understanding of our relation to the universe. We need a deeper, multi-dimensional understanding of our national story: where we have been, where we are, and where we need to go now.

As with other extraordinary times in our history — from our Founding to Abolition to Women’s Suffrage to the Civil Rights era — it is time once again to break free of an old way of being and embrace a new story going forward. As in the words of Abraham Lincoln, “… we must think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country.”

Marianne Williamson will be touring this year, discussing how a revolution in consciousness paves the way to both personal and national renewal. In the words of Martin Luther King, Jr., “Our goal is to create a beloved community and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives.” Let us embrace the possibility of both.

We hope you can join us for this inspirational evening!

Marianne Williamson is an internationally acclaimed author and lecturer. For the last 35 years, she has been one of America’s most well known public voices, having been a popular guest on television programs such as Oprah, Larry King Live, Good Morning America, & Bill Maher. Seven of her twelve published books have been New York Times Best Sellers and four of these were #1. The mega best seller A Return to Love is considered a must-read of The New Spirituality. A paragraph from that book, beginning “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure…” is considered an anthem for a contemporary generation of seekers.

Marianne’s other books include The Law of Divine Compensation, The Age of Miracles, Everyday Grace, A Woman’s Worth, Illuminata, Healing the Soul of America, A Course in Weight Loss, The Gift of Change, Enchanted Love, A Year of Miracles, and her newest book, Tears to Triumph: The Spiritual Journey from Suffering to Enlightenment.

Marianne is a native of Houston, Texas. In 1989, she founded Project Angel Food, a meals-on-wheels program that serves homebound people with AIDS in the Los Angeles area. To date, Project Angel Food has served over 11 million meals. Marianne also co-founded the Peace Alliance.

Marianne has dedicated her travel schedule during 2018 to the Love America Tour, articulating an evolutionary wave of new possibility as principles of higher consciousness are brought to bear on our politics.

Bring your body, mind and spirit back into a positive high vibration.

At a young age Emily Pompei knew she was never alone and always had a sense of "fearlessness.” She knew what stood around her and above her was protecting her. Even so, she experienced unexplained recurring nightmares. Through her continued meditation and prayer she was able to heal herself from negative thoughts and energy. Since then she has made it her life's work to help others heal in the very same way.

In her practice as a Medical Intuitive she is able to discern, through channel, what works best in treating each client by connecting with their Angels, Spirit Guides and their own Divine Light.

In this presentation, Emily will share how she healed herself through recognition and connection to her Guides and her own Divine Light and how you can do the same. Those who have engaged their divine energy are able to live the lives they've imagined and created - full of vibrant energy, excited about their future, and at ease with who they are. Achieving this kind of life goes beyond material success - it's the root of real happiness, joy, health and peace.

Emily Pompei has been a healer and a light worker for over 25 years. As a healer in a very conservative community she kept her gifts well hidden until just recently. In her work she helps her clients clear their bodies emotionally and physically. Her goal with all of her clients is to teach them how to use the tools that will help them heal.

BRING DOWN THE HEAVENS! QiGong, Yin Yang, 5 Elements & More

Gain better health and transcend patterns of suffering with this ancient Chinese flow practice.

7:00pm Event begins. Doors open at 6:15pm for light reception and CASH bar.

The Twentieth Century Club
FREE parking in UPMC lot across the street!

4201 Bigelow Boulevard, Pittsburgh, PA. 15213

Ready to gain better health and transcend patterns of suffering?

This will be a brief lecture followed by a demonstration and group flow practice for those who would like to try it, then Q&A. The practice is not required if you want to just watch.

Join Dr. Susan Amorose in a workshop designed to introduce you to the Tao Yin form of QiGong [chee-kung], a six-thousand year old Chinese flow practice closely resembling the more highly-recognized Tai Chi. It is a holistic system of healing that combines coordinated movements, breathing, and meditation. The practice originated in China and is traditionally viewed as a way to cultivate, circulate, and manage life energy, or qi (chi) by recognizing our special role as humans possessing consciousness combined with free will in tethering the energies and intelligence of the cosmos through our unique awareness.

We "bring down the heavens" as we cultivate the flow of qi or life essence within our bodies, unlocking our minds and connecting our spirits toward greater capacity and flow. We join the energy of the cosmos by drawing it through us and bringing it forth here on earth, all the while honoring our divine role as the tether, the conscious, therefore uniquely sacred connection between heaven and earth. Learn to ground, clear, and sense energy as well as move it through your body and energy field or aura, to produce greater well-being, increased vitality, and potential in all areas of living.

Learn about the basic postures and breathing of the Tao Yin Five practice, the impact of Qi flow within the major five yin organs, the five elements associated with these organs, as well as the seasons, colors and natures of these. We will explore the nature of Yin and Yang, assertive and receptive forces within us and at work in the world around us.

Susan M. Amorose, DMQ, RMT, holds a doctorate in the Ancient Chinese practice of Medical QiGong [chee-kung] and is a clinical practitioner, certifying instructor, curriculum designer and speaker for integrative healing and alternative therapies, including Reiki, QiGong, Yin Yang theory, Sacred Geometry, oils, essences and meditation. Susan is a certified Reiki Master Healer and certifying Teacher of the Usui Shiki Ryoho System.

Susan’s professional path has permitted her the privilege of work and travel throughout the globe. She has a wide range of intercontinental colleagues and students, and therefore, a faceted perspective on both healing approaches and solutions at the personal health and well-being, cultural and enterprise levels.

Combining proven approaches of the East and West, Susan’s practice offers private individual therapeutic sessions, as well as specializing in customized healing integrated with coaching and mentoring sessions to provide less compartmentalized and truly holistic results in every area of your experience. She offers workshops and seminars dedicated to more Conscious Living, Consciousness in Leadership and Team Consciousness Development using the principles of energy and dynamics within enterprise environments and organizations toward strengthening teams, grounding initiatives and developing strategies. These approaches toward better and more collaborative environments, habits of awareness and responsiveness within the workplace and the populations are delivered in a grounded, relatable fashion which serves the multiplicity of our modern environments.

Her most recent Far Eastern travels have included Japan, China, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, and Singapore.

Different levels of classes will be offered, providing an opportunity to experience yoga no matter what your level of fitness.

FOR TEENS AND ADULTS!

  • Develop Clarity & Focus

  • Establish a Healthier Relationship with Oneself
  • Gently Strengthen Your Body

We have a wonderful opportunity to work with the Isha Hatha School of Yoga in New York.  Working with Pittsburgh OMA we have arranged a few classes with Cris and Arti.

 

Teacher Arti Bhoge (see bio)

What is Hatha Yoga?  (from the Isha Hatha Yoga website:)  “Hatha Yoga stems from a deep understanding of themechanics of the body, and uses yogic postures, or yogasanas, to enable the system to sustain higher dimensions of energy. By practicing this profound science, one can change and enhance the way they think, feel, and experience life. Hatha Yoga is about creating a body that is not a hurdle in your life. The body becomes a stepping stone in the progress towards blossoming into your ultimate possibility.

 

Teacher Cris Pedreros (see bio)

We want to take the physical form beyond its present level of limitations. In a way, Hatha Yoga means you want to make your comfort zone universal, instead of the small band that it is right now. Wherever and however you may be, you are at ease. You can naturally achieve a chemistry of health, joy, blissfulness and above all, balance. It is a very powerful way of living. Power, not over somebody else; it’s all about power to access life.”

"Our Incredible Ability to Communicate with Plants" by Crótalo Sésamo

Extraordinary Knowledge from the Mystery School of Damanhur, a Spiritual Eco-Community in Italy, presented by their Ambassador.

7:00 pm 9:00 pm WEDNESDAY

Green Heiress Holistic Health
Note our venue change for this event only.

209 Commercial Avenue, Suite A, Aspinwall, PA 15215

We may consider that consciousness is expansive and everywhere, but what about the the world of plant life? Do we have the ability to communicate with plants by way of sound? Join us for a fascinating lecture on the various ways that plants can behave and speak with us.

Each breath we take is evidence of the interdependence between ourselves and all the world around us. Yet, just how aware are we of this connection to the full realm of nature? For the past 40 years, the Federation of Damanhur has conducted extensive research of the plant world and the ability of plants to respond and communicate. Through their experiments, they have learned that plants have awareness, feelings and memory, and can actively communicate in different ways. And now they have created a device that allows one to listen to the “music of the plants.” Imagine a concert performed by your favorite house plants! Come find out and learn how to experience this unique connection with plants for yourself!

Learn also about the fascinating community of Damanhur in Italy as well as the Mystery School Workshops that are now being offered here in Pittsburgh! Wednesday's event (March 7) is a condensed version of the Mystery School Workshop and great introduction to this series. The Mystery School Workshops will continued to be scheduled and repeated over the next year in Pittsburgh. See the past and upcoming workshops for Pittsburgh,

Damanhur, Italy, may be one of the most unique places on earth. Founded by Oberto Airaudi Falco in 1975, Damanhur, which means 'City of Light', is the largest self-sustaining, ecological spiritual community in the 'ancient wisdom-magical tradition.' With its vast complex of homes, shops, art studios, small manufacturing centers and farms, Damanhur is highly organized, integrated, and dedicated to the unification of art, spirituality and science. The Federation is recognized by the UN as a model for global eco-villages and it is also a highly evolved mystery school. Early initiates began carving the worlds largest 5-story subterranean temple network entirely by hand and called it the Temples of Humankind. Some now consider it to be an 8th wonder of the world. 

Crótalo Sésamo is an artist, Pranatherapist and spiritual healer. He is also the Ambassador to The Federation of Damanhur, in Piedmont, Italy. His first contact with Damanhur was at the age of 17 as the result of his interest in natural medicine and the development of paranormal faculties.

Crótalo has lived and worked at Damanhur as a spiritual researcher now for over 28 years. He specializes in the fields of spiritual healing and the development of human potential with the Olami Damanhur University of which he is now the Director. He is also a specialist in the fields of Spiritual Healing, Ancient Civilizations and Inner Research. He teaches courses in Astral Travel and conscious Out-of-Body Experiences, Past Lives, Inner Harmonizing, Widening of Perception, and Contact with the Plant World. His teaching has taken him all over the world: from the USA, UK, and Canada to Portugal, Holland, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria and Iceland. Learn more about Crótalo Sésamo.

Accessing the Mysteries of Your Hologram

Join Lisa LeRose as she demonstrates how subtle energy systems interact and communicate on a functional level in the holographic field.

7:00 pm Event begins. Doors open at 6:15pm for light reception and CASH bar.

The notion that there is a subtle energy field around the human body that exists beyond normal human perception can be found in many ancient cultures. What is this undiscovered energy? Many describe it as a field that has a higher frequency or vibration than normal physical matter, where a holographic universe exists, where in fact our holographic body exists.

The idea that subtler levels of reality can be accessed is not new, the ancient Chinese art of acupuncture is based on the idea that every organ and bone in the body is connected by specific points on the body’s surface. By activating these acupuncture points, it is believed that disease and imbalances affecting the parts of the body connected to the points can be alleviated and even cured.

Through the study of Quantum Physics we now know that these same points can be accessed through the holographic field. In the holographic model, the body assimilates information in a continuous coding and re-encoding process, the body in essence learns the language of change, which allows for the limitless possibilities.

Join Lisa LeRose as she demonstrates how the subtle energy systems interact and communicate on a functional level in the holographic field. This remarkable new way of looking at the universe may explain many of the mysterious phenomena such as intuition, telepathy, spontaneous remissions, and even mystical experiences and miraculous healing. We invite you to take a peek into the language and the life of your unseen body and discover your own extraordinary healing powers in the holographic universe.

Lisa LeRose is a natural health advocate, wellness practitioner, educator, counselor, talk show host, and eternal optimist. She believes that good health is our body’s natural state and that if you give your body the right environment and support . . . it can heal itself.

Holding this belief, she provides compassionate support to those seeking balance.

She is a graduate of Pennsylvania State University and received her nutritional training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

Lisa has studied with some of the most progressive minds in the holistic healing community. She is a practitioner of energy medicine and energy psychology and incorporates the teachings of a wide variety of modalities. For over 8 years, she has been a student and advanced practitioner of Matrix Energetics, Holosynchronous Energy Technologies, and Mastering Energy Dynamics under Dr. Richard Barlett. She has also been trained in medical intuition by John White; in Lomi Lomi with Kahuna Harry Jim; studied energy medicine with Donna Eden and Dr. Gregory Nicosia; as well as Reconnective Healing with Dr. Eric Pearl and Theta Healing. She is a practitioner of aromatherapy and has studied first-hand with Gary Young and Dr. David Hill.

She works with both humans and animals to develop integrated lifestyle and holistic plans for whole body health and longevity. Lisa is a constant student of the Universe. Lisa is currently working on a book in order to share, with an open heart, what she has learned.

An Awakening:  An act of waking from sleep, or a moment of becoming suddenly aware of something.

In Lillie Leonardi's lifetime, she experienced several awakenings. Each evolved her to a higher level of spiritual awareness and growth. But none as miraculous as an angelic encounter on 9/11 at the Flight 93 crash site.

As a child, Lillie clearly recalls the high-pitched sounds heard in her ear, and reflections of a mysterious "Blue Man with Wings." As she progressed on her journey into adulthood, she witnessed many events that led to dark nights of the soul. Yet like many stories of awakening, the light always followed the dark.

Lillie's journey brought her to a place of divine grace and profound awareness that something greater than her was taking place. It also created a deeper consciousness and connection to the world – both physical and metaphysical.

After 25 years in law enforcement, Lillie Leonardi decided to pursue her lifetime passion for writing. In 2013, Lillie shared her experience as a responder on 9/11 in her first non-fiction book, In the Shadow of a Badge, which sold over 30,000 copies globally. Her gripping personal account of the 12 days she spent acting as an FBI liaison between the law enforcement and social service agencies carries you into a world that combines the factual and logistical with the angelic and mystical.

With her second release in 2016, Lillie shared her life-long spiritual journey in, The White Light of Grace: Reflections on the Life of a Spiritual Intuitive. With her eldest grandchild, Lillie self-published the eBook, Before I Go through Amazon Kindle Publishing in 2016.

Mindfully Organizing Everyday Life

How would you like to be organized as a way of living for harmony, peace and beauty in your surroundings? A way that elevates one's spirit and opens the mind for new possibilities?

By physically organizing yourself and understanding the emotional and mental roots that cause disorder, you have the potential to effect enduring change and live a more harmonious and stress-free life.
 
Organizing is often like mowing the dandelions from your yard - they’ll just grow back. To make effective and lasting changes, you need to pull them out by the roots. Your physical surroundings are a reflection of your mental and emotional processes that are at the roots of your behavior, and this is where the weeding must begin.
 
Joyce Wilde is a masters level psychologist, certified mindfulness facilitator, personal mindfulness coach and author of The Wilde Woman’s Guide to Organizing in Five Simple Steps: Using Mindfulness to Change Your Habits. Joyce helps both women and men get through challenging transitions by teaching them how to organize effectively and communicate compassionately.

In this ultramodern world we can lose ourselves in a number of ways with busy lives, stressful jobs, financial burdens and mindless entertainment as an escape At times we feel like life is a crazy, tedious grind and there’s just got to be something more.

What do you think it means to be spiritually connected? How does it matter? Perhaps you feel a spiritual connection with others in relationships that are profoundly meaningful. Or maybe the state of connectedness that you experience is an affinity with nature or a oneness with all beings alive or in the heavens. It could be you have little interest in spiritual matters and take a more pragmatic approach toward life and the fulfillment of self and happiness.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to share all of your thoughts and questions about your spirituality in a safe, open and non-judgmental space? And to be able to discuss your underlying needs and fears with those who likely follow similar journeys?

Come join us to share soup and bread (vegan and gluten-free) with intimate conversation as we discover a deeper connection and understanding of topics on Mind, Body and Spirit in a community based on acceptance and love.

Food for the Soul, a new initiative for OMA, is designed to give the participants an opportunity to share in a simple meal of soup and bread (served vegan and gluten-free) as well as discussions regarding introspection and ideas on various subjects related to Mind, Body and Spirit. Small groups of 8-10 individuals will convene around a table and will be led by OMA members.

OMA is thankful for the interest and participation of its audiences and with this invitation is providing another outlet for the involvement of each individual. Please join us on December 14 for an unique endeavor during this celebratory season. Kindly register online by December 12 in order to reserve a seat at this forum.

Your microbiome — the trillions of bacteria in your gut and on your skin — can tell you a lot about your health.

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, said thousands of years ago "all disease begins in the gut." Science is catching up with antiquity. Many seemingly unrelated health problems are now being linked to underlying gut problems

In this presentation, Dr. Will Cole will focus on the importance of the microbiome and the role it plays as the foundation of your overall health and its connection with your hormones and brain. You’ll learn about the underlying factors that contribute to autoimmune spectrum disorders, in addition to the role methylation and the MTHFR gene mutation plays in these conditions. Dr. Cole will discuss the powerful world of adaptogens and how using these Functional Medicine based herbal tools can help to balance your brain and hormonal system.

Dr. Will Cole, leading functional medicine practitioner, specializes in clinically investigating underlying factors and customizing health programs for chronic conditions such as thyroid issues, autoimmune conditions, hormonal dysfunctions, and more. He consults locally in the Pittsburgh area as well as webcam and phone consultations for people across the country and around the world. Dr. Cole is a health writer for international publications such as mindbodygreen  (MBG) and lectures nationally.

Dr. Cole graduated from Southern California University of Health Sciences in Los Angeles, California. He has his post doctorate education and training in Functional Medicine and Clinical Nutrition through The Institute for Functional Medicine and Functional Medicine University.

All the world's problems can be summed up in a single word: Ego

And accordingly, all the solutions to the world's problems can also be simplified with one word: Spirit.

In this lecture, the author of "New Eyes: A Unifying Vision of Science and Spirituality" will demonstrate how quantum physics and neuroscience support the idea of oneness and how all the world's major religions point to the need for each of us to be "perfect" in our pursuit of spirituality.

Whether we know it or not -- and whether we believe it or not -- we are all on the same team in the evolution of consciousness.

Steve Treu, LPC, will explain how a shift in awareness toward the healing spirit and away from the addictive clutches of ego can make a tremendous difference in our personal lives as well as in the collective consciousness of everyone on the entire planet.

Steve Treu is a licensed professional counselor and Chief Visionary Officer for Quantum Revolution Inc. His insight-focused therapy uses quantum physics to help clients understand the scientific nature of reality, and process what it means for them from both a physical (body) and non-physical (soul) perspective as they heal themselves. As an applied quantum philosopher, Treu assists people in exploring their infinite possibilities as they improve their lives through a variety of mind, body and spirit techniques. His counseling methods are revolutionary and are geared specifically toward those struggling with addiction or mental health issues.

What is enlightenment, is it real or just a myth?

What is the history of enlightenment? All religions and spiritual traditions have a common goal of experiencing and reaching a liberated state and a state of self-transcendence. Meditation is a common denominator for this path of discovery, experience and the goal of enlightenment.

We will explore the mystical qualities of meditation as well as some of the modern thinking and research behind it. How much of this is mysticism as opposed to science? Are we the source of this experience or a conduit of a Divine source? The answer is not clear, however the experience of meditation is natural and can be experienced in your daily living.

Whether it is science-based or faith-based, the steps to enlightenment are reachable with practice and perseverance.

Dr. Brahma Sharma was first introduced to the practice of meditation when he was a medical student and has spoken and written about these aspects of lifestyle in various forms in the U.S. and abroad.  Dr. Sharma has special interests in the role of lifestyle modification in the prevention of cardiovascular disease and in the scientific basis of different spiritual practices in imparting holistic heart health.

We hope you can join us as Dr. Sharma informs us about how the ancient system of meditation has resurfaced as the modern practice of mindful meditation and the science behind its medical benefits as well as its mystical elements.

Dr. Brahma Sharma, MD graduated from The University of Rajasthan, India and spent a few years in Africa with the WHO mission.  He then did his residency at The University of Alabama in Birmingham and fellowship in cardiovascular medicine here in Pittsburgh, where he has remained for the last 20 years.  He has traveled around the world with a variety of medical missions, especially to poor and developing countries to help raise awareness about the global epidemic of heart disease and its prevention.  Dr. Sharma is currently a Professor of Medicine at UPMC.

How many times have you told yourself to quit thinking about what happened in the past?  How often does what happened in the past affect your life in the present?  Do you even know?  How many times have you tried and failed to let it all go?  Are you willing to give it another try; this time with some Divine assistance?

Join us for a guided meditation to ask Archangel Michael to use the power of his sword to cut the cords you’ve been unable to sever yourself.  There’s  no hard work for you… just a willingness to ask for help and the readiness to receive!  We’ll follow Michael’s work with a Reiki energy circle to take the release and healing to a deeper level.  Spirit will empower the vibrations of drums and rattles through the energies of Reiki, and Bonnie will facilitate messages from Spirit and your guides and angels as the circle progresses.  You’ll get what you need without needing to know what that might be!  Let a Higher Power decide and surrender yourself to Divine intervention!

Bring a tissue or two in case the release is emotional.  Bring a journal or notebook to record any insights or wisdom that surface.

Set your intention and let God do the rest!

Bonnie Hassan first experienced God’s direct intervention in her life when a prayer uttered in church was answered in an amazing way just a few short hours later. Since that time, Bonnie’s journey has been directed by Divine Guidance in many ways, from the opening of a private healing practice in 2003 to a 14,000 mile solo road trip to Alaska and back. With a Master’s Degree in Social Work, a B.S. in Human Resource Management, and fifteen years experience practicing and teaching Reiki, Bonnie travels around the United States providing unique and powerful healing sessions for both groups and individuals. Bonnie believes that in order to see change in the world, we first have to change/heal ourselves.  Previously from Pittsburgh, PA, Bonnie currently lives in Nashville, TN so she can enjoy being close to her family.

Body image dissatisfaction is a growing epidemic. By over emphasizing our looks, society has taught women to constantly judge and dislike our bodies!

Love your Body Love Yourself is a journey into stopping the insanity and loving ourselves RIGHT NOW!!!

I’m not going to say that it is easy to love yourself.

However, what is the alternative? Is body dissatisfaction and dieting working for you??? Has it got you any long term weight loss? I know it didn’t for me-quite the opposite. It kept me binge eating, restricting and emotionally eating.

Without love we do not thrive! Love transforms. Fear conforms. Love connects. Fear Isolates. Love heals. Fear hurts. We know this intellectually however when it comes to our body their seems to be a total blind spot.

Through Movement Exercises, Breathwork, Visualizations and Heartfelt Support from the group, you will experience the release of body shame, opening of the pleasure body and how to shift negative body image to positive. You will discover How to Love yourself- RIGHT NOW.

You will learn how to:

  • Stop the Constant Body Shame Chatter
  • Get on with your life
  • Say Yes to how you look NOW
  • Accept Yourself~Feel your Beauty
  • Feel your own pleasure and juiciness
  • Let Go of the unworthy story
  • Stop Compare and Despair

Price at Door $20.00

 

Join us as we welcome Dana Harris-Yates to OMA to teach us about manifesting. We will explore vibration frequency and energy and how these things affect us in manifesting our will.

 

Dana has for several years worked to align her actions and herself with her life's purpose. As she has connected with her higher self, her divine truth, she also also learned and practices many skills which help her to manifest all she needs in order to continue in her life's purpose. When we connect with our highest and most true selves, the gift of manifesting can help us achieve and acquire everything we need for each moment. As we connect with our truest selves and as our actions align with our values we begin to operate at a much higher frequency. The energy of these moments propels us forward along our truest path. The universe wants us to be successful in achieving and fulfilling our life's purpose and will do all it can to give us what we truly need. We just need to learn how to ask for it. Dana will share her story and some of the tricks and skills she had learned along her own  path.

What is vibration? What is energy? What does this mean to us on the planet in relation to the shift we are experiencing? What is the law of attraction? How do we master the law of attraction? What is manifestation? How are we able to apply it in our lives?   What roles do does intent, focus and belief play?

What do you want to manifest in 2017? What tools are you using now to manifest these things? We will explore what tools really work to manifest your will and we will explore your relationship with the energy around you and how you can tap into this. 

 

Dana Harris-Yates, an Indigenous Native Moor, is Pittsburgh's own Shamanic Healer. A Hoodoo practitioner, Master Herbalist, Reiki and Nishanti Mganga Master, Numerologist, Reader, Spiritual Guide, Mindfuless, Body and Soul/Spirit Centered Thereputic Couselor, Motivational Speaker, and Pittsburgh’s Genetic based Healing Specilist, Dana owns and operates “Nature's Healing Emporium” Cultural Oasis, in East Liberty. Dana serves the community’s elders and youth through education and use of food, herbs, elements, and nature for healing the mind, body, soul and spirit.

At a young age Emily knew she was never  alone; she always had a sense of "fearlessness.”  She knew what stood around her and above her protecting her.  However, she experienced unexplainable recurring nightmares. Through her continued meditation and prayer she was able to heal herself. From that point on, she has made it her life's work to help others heal in the very same way.

In her practice as a Medical Intuitive she is able to discern, through channel, what works best in treating each client  by connecting with their Angels, Spirit Guides and their own Divine Light. 

In this presentation, Emily will share how she healed herself through recognition and connecting with her Guides and her own Divine Light and how you can do the same. 

Emily Pompei has been a healer and a light worker for over 25 years.  As a healer in a very conservative community she kept her gifts well hidden until just recently.  In her work she helps her clients clear their bodies emotionally and physically.  Her goal with all of her clients is to teach them how to use the tools that will help them heal.

At any moment in your life, you have a hierarchy of choices at your disposal. Developing a mindful awareness of all the elements — your feelings, thoughts and sensations — that influence your decisions will give you the skills to reach the highest level of conscious decision-making, where you can combine instinct, intellect, insight and intuition to operate in “the zone.”  Krishna will highlight the more intangible human elements to enrich the quality and sustainability of your choices while reducing the consequences of poor judgment driven mostly by our mindless reactions.

Krishna Pendyala is the Founder and Chief Empowerment Officer at the ChoiceLadder Institute and the President of the Mindful Nation Foundation. He is an author, systems entrepreneur and change agent who uses a playful approach to empower people make more mindful choices in life.  He is the creator of the AlphaZone workshops designed to refine the skills of conscious judgment and effective choice-making.  The Mindful Nation Foundation, a brainchild of Congressman Tim Ryan, helps five pivotal segments of society overcome stress and lead more fulfilling lives—veterans, children, teachers, healthcare professionals and leaders. 

Krishna is an accomplished software entrepreneur, award-winning multimedia producer, inventor and sought-after business growth and personal advisor and has guided individuals and teams at Boeing, Carnegie Mellon, the Pittsburgh Steelers, UNESCO and UBS using his simple, yet practical framework distilled from his varied career experiences. His transformational approach has been featured on TEDx, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Huff Post Live, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and Inc. magazine among others.  He is also the author of the critically acclaimed book Beyond the PIG and the APE: Realizing Success and true Happiness and blogs at the Huffington Post. He is a distinguished alumnus of Indiana State University and a graduate of the Indian Institute of Technology. Krishna lives in Pittsburgh with his wife and two adolescent children and loves photography, kayaking, golf and RVing.

In this hands-on workshop, we will explore how racism affects the media, education, housing, the criminal justice system, and our personal lives. What happens when we are willing to look at ourselves as participants in this system? How does vulnerability aid us in choosing a path that benefits all people? Why does this work matter in Pittsburgh and beyond?

"Science and spirituality have long been considered to be in conflict with each other, but it is becoming clear that the two disciplines are not mutually exclusive - they are merely different ‘languages’ that explain the same thing."  --Steve Treu, New Eyes

Please join us as Steve Treu speaks to us about his new book, "New Eyes," in which he tells us that Einstein and friends back up the world’s religions and shows us how quantum physics points to the world being an illusion that is really just a playground for souls to learn and grow.

“New Eyes’” is about the science of spirituality and how all of the world's religions are ultimately pointing at the same idea ... that we are eternal conscious beings interacting in an illusory physical world.

Steve Treu is a licensed professional counselor and Chief Visionary Officer for Quantum Revolution Inc.  His insight-focused therapy uses quantum physics to help clients understand the scientific nature of reality, and process what it means for them from both a physical (body) and non-physical (soul) perspective as they heal themselves.  As an applied quantum philosopher, Treu assists people in exploring their infinite possibilities as they improve their lives through a variety of mind, body and spirit techniques.  His quantum counseling methods are indeed revolutionary and are geared specifically toward those struggling with addiction or mental health issues.

Please check out this interview to learn  more information about Steve Treu and “New Eyes”

Release and Receive

Spirit is very willing to give us everything we need…as long as we have the space for it!

So if you’re not quite as much in the flow of abundance, prosperity, joy, love, peace and all things good as you might like to be, perhaps it’s because something else is filling the space where those things would like to reside.  What do you need to release so you can receive?

Join us for an opportunity to release whatever is keeping you from receiving and to receive whatever you need once you’ve created a space for it!  We’ll allow Spirit to work with us during a guided meditation as the Reiki energies further empower your meditative journey.  Once the meditation is complete, Spirit will deepen your experience during a group Reiki circle with messages from your guides and angels, and soul messages that will speak directly to your soul in a language only your soul understands.

The vibrations of drums and rattles will further empower the Reiki energies to provide a whole-body experience that may rock your foundation and bring new zest to your life experience. Nature abhors a vacuum:  Make a space and see what you receive in return!

Bonnie Hassan first experienced God’s direct intervention in her life when a prayer uttered in church wasanswered in an amazing way just a few short hours later. Since that time, Bonnie’s journey has been directed by Divine Guidance in many ways, from the opening of a private healing practice in 2003 to a 14,000 mile solo road trip to Alaska and back. With a Master’s Degree in Social Work, a B.S. in Human Resource Management, and fifteen years experience practicing and teaching Reiki, Bonnie travels around the United States providing unique and powerful healing sessions for both groups and individuals. Bonnie believes that in order to see change in the world, we first have to change/heal ourselves.  Previously from Pittsburgh, PA, Bonnie currently lives in Nashville, TN so she can enjoy being close to her family.

Opening Your Body to Complete Mind-Body Healing

Emily Pompei has had the ability to see spirit guides, angels, angelic presence (God energy) and those who have passed to the other side from the very young age of 3 years old.  With the assistance of her clients’ spirit guides and divine beings she has found that together they are able to “decrease and even eliminate the point of pain, illness or toxic, incongruent, generational links.”

“I see toxic blocks in body tissue, whatever that block is I can see it.  It may be memory or trauma or generational.  With the help of my guides, angels, entities and loved ones on the other side WE are able to move out old stagnant pain and blockages that inhibit the spirit to grow and move to a higher level.

There are many layers of genetic past life “DNA” that we carry with us.  Our goal is to release fear, pain and suffering in the human body in whatever way possible so that the spirit can rest comfortably at its own ‘peace.’ “   

We hope you can join us for this fascinating conversation! 

Emily Pompei has been a healer and a light worker for over 25 years.  Through many years of working with hundreds of clients she has accurately evaluated and treated physical and emotional illnesses and through the channeling of Spirit brought the body back into full alignment for optimal health benefits.  For years she kept her gifts very well hidden. Now, in a much more open world she is able to use her gifts to help people who want to heal.  To learn more about Emily, please visit her website at www.epmi1.com.

Astrology with Rick DiClemente "The Exquisite Zodiac"

You are more than just your Sun sign! The time has come for humanity to comprehend the full brilliance of the zodiac’s grand design. The energies that comprise each of us are the very same energies that make up the whole universe.

Please join us as Rick DiClemente gives an overview of his new book, The Exquisite Zodiac, and reveals how every facet of the zodiac works in sync, and how we can apply the entirety of its intelligence and wisdom in a practical way. The Exquisite Zodiac bridges the gap between abstract, esoteric astrology books and those that are glib and misleading—thereby setting astrology on the proper track for our time. After this evening, you will never view astrology—or yourself and your relationships—in the same way again.

Rick DiClemente is not your typical astrologer. Widely known as a “way shower,” he blends math-science and spiritual-psychic ability with empirical knowledge in order to reveal the multi-faceted story in each chart. Rick’s intuitive-astrological readings blend past-life experience with the natal chart as well as your dharmic, or destiny chart. At the same time, he brings alive the applied discipline of consulting with the cosmos for timeless wisdom that helps others better understand themselves, their relationships and their lives.   Rick has practiced astrology for 36 years, he works on radio, TV and the Internet and has presented numerous lectures, classes, workshops and online videos. He is the author of “The Exquisite Zodiac” and his articles appear monthly in national and international magazines.

People dealing with fertility issues know that stress is their constant companion.

Dr. Alice Domar, Director of Women’s Health Programs at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School, has conducted numerous research studies looking at the relationship between stress and fertility. According to Dr. Domar, “infertile women report equivalent levels of anxiety and depression as (do) women with cancer, HIV status, or heart disease.” Learning to control this anxiety and stress is essential. The Mind/Body Fertility Program at Calm Waters Holistic Healing, LLC™ is modeled after Dr. Domar’s program in Boston.
Learning how to cope with the emotional aspects of fertility issues not only improves a couple’s quality of life, studies suggest it can also result in a higher pregnancy rate.

Calm Waters offers a comprehensive ten-week Mind/Body Fertility Program that teaches how to:

  • Reduce stress via a variety of relaxation methods
  • Learn the power of meditation
  • Practice yoga for fertility
  • Enjoy a supportive atmosphere
  • Make positive lifestyle changes
  • Develop self-nurturing
  • Replace negative emotions with positive ones
  • Grow together as a couple

Nancy Lishack, M.ED., is dedicated to helping her clients reach optimal health.

How can stress impact a woman’s chance of becoming pregnant? Can the human energy field be used to help those recovering from surgery? These and other questions inspired her to learn from some of the top practitioners in the field.

She has studied under Dr. Alice Domar, a pioneer in the application of mind/body medicine who is the Director of Mind/Body Services at Boston IVF. In 2009, Nancy graduated from the Barbara Brennan School of Healing in Miami, FL where she studied the fundamentals of the human energy field and its relationship to illness and health and to psychological and spiritual development. In addition, Nancy is currently enrolled in a four-year, mind-body training program, PsychoEnergtics, where she is learning to facilitate and support a meaningful transformational journey for clients using mindfulness, breath work and body-oriented techniques. For more than three decades, Nancy has taught at the high school and college levels all while continually seeking to educate herself on ways to assist others on their path towards vibrant health and contentment.

Nancy has provided support to a range of clients, from those undergoing hip and knee surgery to others receiving treatment for cancer, depression and many other conditions.

Calm Waters Holistic Healing, LLC™ is exicted to bring the Mind/Body Program for Fertility to the Pittsburgh area.

THE FOUR AGREEMENTS

Be Impeccable with your Word

Don’t Take Anything Personally

Don’t Make Assumptions

Always Do Your Best

In the beginning these new habits can be challenging.  Join us as Deb Thackrah teaches us, that with practice, these agreements can become integrated into our very being and therefore every area of our lives.  

“You need a very strong will in order to adopt the Four Agreements—but if you can begin to live your life with these agreements, the transformation in your life will be amazing. You will see the drama of hell disappear right before your very eyes. Instead of living in a dream of hell, you will be creating a new dream—your personal dream of heaven.”   ~ don Miguel Ruiz

Deb Thackrah was exploring Transcendental Meditation and the works of Carlos Castaneda at the age of 15.  Her early spiritual seekings carried her to an ashram in the Catskills of New York state, the desert canyons of Zion National Park in Utah and half way across the world, to Himalayan Mountains of India, to study the ways of shamans and honored teachers of the Christian, Native American, and Buddhist traditions.   

In 2011, Deb founded Feeding the Spirit which is dedicated to nourishing the bodies, minds, and souls of people in need including those who are homeless by providing them with temporary shelter at local hotels and providing rent assistance to those at risk of becoming homeless.

Deb’s healing center, Touch of Grace Healing, is located in Greensburg.  As a cranio-sacral therapist, master-level Reiki practitioner and clairvoyant/intuitive, she gives individual and group healing sessions, leads workshops and discussion groups, meditation groups, and soul sessions.  To learn more about Deb please visit www.touchofgracehealing.org.

Eden Energy Medicine with Elaine Alker

An Introduction to Energy Medicine

La Dorita

2312 Main Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15215

For optimum health, energy needs to be balanced, flowing in the correct direction, smoothly without any blockages. Energy Healing is an ancient art and science of working with the subtle energies of the body. It is based on the principle that the body is composed of physical and energetic components, and that the natural tendency of the body is toward self-healing. Energy Healing facilitates and accelerates the body’s natural ability to heal because it restores communication within the Bodymind so that the body can go about doing what it is designed to do: heal itself.  It really is that simple. 

Energy Healing is the oldest, safest, most organic, most accessible,
and most affordable medicine there is. People receive energy treatments when they are sick or well  for a variety of reasons.  Energy Medicine can be self-applied or administered by a trained practitioner.

Energy Healing can:

Restore your energy when you are tired. 

Help you to recover from illness.

Sharpen your memory and mental clarity.
 
Strengthen your immune system. 
 
Adjust to new medications.
 
Relieve Headaches
 
Release Stress
 
Let your body heal from the inside out
 
 
Elaine Alker has been studying energy and its healing powers for more than ten years. 
She is certified as an Advanced Eden Energy Medicine Practitioner, and Instructor, having studied with Donna Eden, the leading expert in energy medicine, and world famous author, healer and teacher.

As an Energy Medicine Practitioner, Elaine helps clients by identifying patterns of imbalance in their energy system, and realigning them so that the body can begin to heal itself.  In addition to working with clients individually, Elaine also teaches workshops to corporations and community organizations.
