Tana Hartman, a local activist, will just be returning from the Women’s March in DC and will be sharing her insights>
Dan May: My vision of what I want to talk about: Is there a way to be at peace and feel our power and joy during these times of political and social upheaval? Is there a way to look at the events in the news and in our lives with a sense of purpose and love? I think there is. Warning: The ideas may seem radical but if you are ready to have your ego rattled come and join us for another way of being present for life!
Robert Roskind: No matter who won the election, the result would bring out much anger, despair and frustration. However, to do the work we incarnated here to do, as soon as possible we have to go past these understandable feelings to the peace and clarity of our love, our compassion, our humanity..
It helps me to strive to remember that every great teacher of love showed by example that you cannot teach love coming from anger, judgement and blame. MLK, Jr., Gandhi, Mandela, Tutu, Mohammed Ali, the Dalai Lama, Jesus, Buddha, and others understood that you can passionately stand up to misguided power but to create the transformation that is truly needed you must not do so with hate and anger. Righteous indignation, yes, but personal anger towards misguided brothers and sisters, no.
MLK, Jr, once referred to a death threat from “some of my sick white brothers.” In these six words, he revealed great truths. It was “some” not all, they were “sick” not evil and they were his “brothers” not his enemies.
In transforming this much-suffering planet, I feel guided to do the same – go past my anger into my love and – as best I can – complete the one/seven billionth of the sacred task I was assigned and I volunteered to do.
Tuesday January 24 7:00-8:00pm
Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy (Past Life Regression) as taught by Dolores Cannon with Elizabeth Desrochers, Certified QHHT Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy Practitioner
Elizabeth is a Teacher of Healers; a gifted Visionary with a unique ability to create Wellness and Joy with each person she works with.
Elizabeth will be talking about her journey from Welder to Healer with her most respected work in QHHT Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy, a Hypnosis technique that takes the client through a guided meditation into the somnambulistic state of consciousness. The Subconscious has the ability to identify any physical problem it detects within the body to a QHHT Practitioner and explain the causes for its presence, be it from the current life or a past life. QHHT was developed by Dolores Cannon, a hypnotherapist specializing in past life regression.
In a somnambulistic state, we have access to that part of ourselves often called the Higher Self/the Soul where we dialogue with it to find answers to solve our issues. Supplementing the vast body of work Dolores had produced, the results experienced by QHHT Practitioners, students of Dolores who have learned her technique and practice it with their own clients, conclusively support the finding that we have all lived multiple Other Lives and we all have a Subconscious which contains the answers to any question we may have about ourselves or the life we are living.
During this introduction with Elizabeth she will bring us into a guided meditation to sample her work. There is nothing difficult about it. We all access this state twice a day, once when we’re waking up and again just before sleep. Elizabeth will be available to answer your questions and is offering private QHHT sessions in Chapel Hill January 25-27. Call Kathleen Paul 919-624-0258 to schedule yours.

The holiday season, whether it was wonderful or challenging, often evokes and brings up our past. As we move into this new year, and this new time of change upon the planet, many of us are feeling a desire to make peace with our past, Many of us are feeling a longing to release old patterns and old ways of being, so that we may live our lives with more freedom, fulfillment and purpose.
I invite you to join me in this experiential hands on workshop.If the group is small I will provide individual mini healing sessions to all who attend. If the group is larger, I will work with two, three or four people to demonstrate how Intuitive Life Coaching and Reiki/ Energy Healing can be used to help heal and release the past.
Kezia Renee Lechner recently moved to this area from Philadelphia. She offers private sessions and hosts a monthly, sliding scale Reiki Healing Clinic in Chapel Hill. Formerly a professional artist, she was a member of a National Artist’s Coaching Community for over a decade. Drawn to the Healing Arts, she became a Reiki Master in 1999, explored a number of other healing modalities and soon after established her own practice.
