In Person and On Zoom! Working to Support Your Four-Leggeds in 2024 with Sofia Risberg

Sunday, May 19, 11:30AM-12:30PM, $25

Have you noticed shifts in your beloved fur-baby (or as I call them four-leggeds) lately? How is their health? Do you want to look at alternative ways to support them other than veterinarians when they are anxious or have trauma? Then this webinar is for you.

I’m Sofia Risberg and I facilitate energy healing for animals with the modality of BodyTalk. I’m sharing consciousness shifts that have come through in my sessions for humans to better support the health and thriving of their beloved four-leggeds with the shifts in consciousness we’re going through. Our animals have supported us emotionally, physically and energetically and they have asked me to share what they need to navigate the new energies.

Some of the topics we’ll discuss are:

  • Energy awareness in relation to our animals;

  • The shift from pet/owner to animal/steward;

  • Upgrades to their food;

  • Their role in being emotional support; and

  • Non-western medicine approaches.

Sofia Risberg is a former historian who started practicing BodyTalk in 2020. After learning the modality, she has been intuitively guided to work primarily with animals to help them find assistance with anxiety, trauma, ancestral patterns, and other issues that affect them.

It is her belief and understanding that once we deeply connect to ourselves and each other through working with and developing this space, the healing energy that is created will reverberate throughout our communities and ultimately create a better life experience for all inhabitants of earth. It starts with knowing and loving ourselves.

Connecting with Divine Mother to Help Develop Your Intuition, Through Two New Books with Robin Lysne

Sunday, June 2, 12-1:30PM, Free!

Two new books by Robin Lysne, Ph.D., have some similar roots. The first one channels Divine Mother in many of her forms. The second one is a memoir about her evolution into mediumistic work, channeling, and intuitive healing. The books have a lot of information about our future with the Mother Gaia, as well as how one becomes a medium and intuitive to help others.

Divine Mother is an energetic reality of beauty, love and compassion living around us and inside each of us, and all through nature. Divine Mother assumes countless forms in all of us. She needs to speak to us to balance relating to her. The Mother of Us All is a collection of true stories about being guided by her to share the information, as well as channeled events since 2004. The stories in the book are the most recent about how we need to change our relationship with her inside of us and all around us.

Two Worlds One Light; A Memoir of a Medium is the true story of Dr. Lysne's development as a medium, and as a spiritual teacher. From Guru’s to Native American Dances and South American Umbanda Ceremonies, to Ananda Worldwide this book engages readers from the first page. The first half of the book shares her development from being a natural medium at age two, to recognizing and developing her skills to serve others in the last half of the book. Others can develop their intuition and connection with the Divine Mother if they are called to become a medium and intuitive to serve others, the book shares this and how personal growth interweaves with difficult life lessons to serve others.

Zoom Event! Your Passport to a New World Beyond Stress, Struggle, and Useless Pain with Guy Finley

Thursday, June 6, 6-7:15PM, $10

We’re all familiar with pain in its many forms such as regret, anger, guilt, and feeling overwhelmed. It seems we spend a major part of life trying to avoid this pain, with little success. Renowned author, Guy Finley shows us that trying to push our pain away is like trying to outrun our own shadow. It can’t be done because the event we don’t want is not, itself, the reason for our suffering.

Finley will explain that the seemingly different pains we suffer in life share a single invisible root. To glimpse even the smallest part of this hidden truth is to be awarded a passport into a new, sorrow-free world.

Finley will help listeners realize this liberating discovery: unwanted moments are not happening to us but are in fact happening for us. With each insight is born a deeper gratitude for life and a growing trust in its goodness.

Guy Finley is an internationally renowned spiritual teacher and bestselling author. He is the Founder and Director of Life of Learning Foundation, a nonprofit center for spiritual self-study located in Merlin, Oregon. He is the best-selling author of The Secret of Letting Go and 45 other books and audio programs.

Cancer in the Land of Oz with Robert B Ellis, DO, PhD, FACP

Saturday, June 22, 11:30AM-1:30PM, $25

A cancer diagnosis can be one of the most frightening things that an individual can hear. Science and clinical experience have shown the importance of a whole person-centered approach in the care and treatment of this disease. While science has made great inroads in the therapy of cancer using surgery, and other anti-cancer therapies; healing from a mind-soul perspective is largely left unaddressed. Anti-cancer therapy plans usually do not address these powerful healing forces that are part of everyone’s being.

This spiritual and emotional approach has always been the preview of a soul centered approach to illness and its methods have been encoded in healing myths and other intuitive methods. State of the art cancer science has validated this healing capacity but medicine does not know how to activate it... but your soul does.

This talk will discuss the spiritual, mental, and emotional aspects of healing using the uniquely Western myth of the Wizard of Oz. Tools such as creative imagining, meditation, the use of psycho-spiritual counselors/therapists and the use of tarot for accession of the subconscious elements will be highlighted.

Dr Ellis is a board-certified medical oncologist, integrative medicine physician and lifestyle medicine expert. Incorporating osteopathic principles and practice, nutrition and mind-body approaches into the care and treatment of patients with cancer has been an active part of his practice. One component of his interest and practice has been in the utilization of tarot as a holistic healing tool. He is currently the CEO and founder of Integrative Cancer Care Services and serves as teaching faculty at several local medical schools.
