Intuitive Life Coaching and Energy Healing Mini sessions
with Kezia Renee Lechner

Many people right now are finding core issues rising more strongly to the surface to be acknowledged, healed and released. Bring whatever you feel you are working with at the moment, be it a relationship challenge, a desire for more clarity about your life’s path, a weight issue, loss and grief, an urge to create more forward momentum in your life.The possibilities, of course, are endless.

Come enjoy an experiential evening of Transformational Intuitive Coaching and hands on Energy Healing. If the group is small, I will provide short individual sessions for each person. If the group is large, I will work with as many people as I’m able. You will leave feeling lighter and less burdened, with more passion and clarity about moving forward on your path.

Introducing Holotropic Breathwork:
Safe extraordinary states work with the potential for healing

Bob has been facilitating Holotropic Breathwork sessions since 1993 and is certified by the founding group GTT.  Holotropic Breathwork is a natural, safe technique to expand awareness and access extraordinary states of consciousness.  Indigenous cultures have used extraordinary states for healing throughout the ages. Reports of healing, self-discovery, inner peace, and transformation often occur with this process.

Developed by Dr. Stanislav Grof, this highly experiential process combines deep relaxation, enhanced breathing, evocative music, expressive/integrative bodywork, art, and group process.  We will talk about the process and how the psyche seems to “select” the experience which evolves to teach us.  We will discuss the myriad of experiences, the unlimited nature, and the benefits.

Bob graduated from UNC-CH 1971, worked in business and began to explore spirituality and consciousness in 1991. He has taught meditation, yoga, stress management and massage therapy.

His global travels provided him insights and openings to himself which he willingly shares with others. He is a licensed massage therapist, an approved provider for continuing education for massage therapists, and a certified consultant/instructor of Touch for Health. His love of nature is displayed at his retreat in Mebane, North Carolina where he lives and hosts workshops in Holotropic Breathwork.  www.holoquest.org     (the search for wholeness)

Movies-to-Matter/Spiritual Cinema
A Leaf of Faith


Documentary filmmaker Chris Bell has built his career on investigating drug-related issues that plague athletes and the general public. Best known for Bigger, Stronger, Faster, a bold expose of steroid use by top competitive athletes — including his own ‘doping’ to gain muscle in his pursuit as a body builder — Bell is back with a documentary that addresses wide spread addiction worldwide, and especially in the US, to opioid painkillers. Having reached epidemic proportions, opioid addiction is currently one of the top causes of death in the U.S. — ranging from heroin (an opioid) overdose to abuse of synthetic opioids to withdraw from heroin addition and prescription of addictive opoids to relieve chronic pain.


Bell’s documentary reveals the staggering statistics, and goes on to describe and advocate for an alternative substance — the Kratom leaf, harvested from a plant, Mitragyna speciosa, that grows abundantly in Southeast Asia, where it has for centuries been brewed into tea and used for mood elevation and to ease pain, without reported incidents of addiction or death.


The documentary chronicles Bell’s quest for a full status report on Kratom’s standing with physicians, pharmacists, marketers, patients and various government agencies including the FDA and DEA. He finds varying opinions about the effectiveness, safety and need for regulation of Kratom, which is currently being sold over the counter in health food stores and head shops. The bottom line is that there have not yet been clinical tests to determine the effects and effectiveness of Kratom, so all opinions — including commentaries based on personal experience with the leaf — are is somewhat speculative, but it is generally agreed that there must be regulations regarding product authenticity and quality, and the requirement for accurate product labeling put into place.



Now serving organic Counter Culture Coffee (chosen #1 in Southeast, fresh-ground & French-pressed), kratom, kava, CBD products, drinks and edibles, large selection of organic teas, smoothies, gluten-free, vegan, raw and regular pastries and fine chocolates from Matthews Chocolates in Hillsborough.
