Peace, The Angels and You: A Free Immersive In-Person Oasis with Mark Mezadourian
Saturday, December 9th, 6-7pm, Free!
Most of the narratives right now are constrictive, leaving key elements of our spiritual lives (hope, healing, happiness) seem small and distant. The spiritual solution is to drop out of fear, turn on our love of life, and tune into the millions of others who share a vision of peace with us. When we are present, possibilities abound. When we feel big, we relax into empowerment. When we gather, everything amplifies. Inhabiting an expansive state is the goal of this gathering. We will engage with loving angels and gratefully allow them to help us personally and globally. Each participant is invited to share an intention (such as "peace"), then Mark will lead a guided experience, and we will share at the end.
Mark Mezadourian holds a space that is gentle, insightful, grounded, and expansive for others to move through profound and transformative experiences along the spiritual journey. Mark is a medium and intuitive who specializes in connecting with angels and guides. You can visit Mark’s website to download free meditations. MarkMezadourian.com

In Person Event! Restorative Sound Healing
Annemarie, Awaiting Date, $35
Think of healing as the restoration of the natural balance and flow of energy on all levels of existence: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Gongs work on all of these levels to heal and transform. They have been used since at least 4000BC to effortlessly move the brain into the beneficial theta wave state, where the body's own innate healing capabilities lie.
Annemarie's gong playing is deeply attuned to the nervous system, offering profoundly restorative and transformative experiences. It's group Craniosacral Therapy.
