Past Life Regression Sessions Offered on Monday’s

What is a Past Life Regression Session and what will it do for me?

Under the guidance of Dr. Gene Biever, M.D. discover your past lives. Use lessons from your past to shape your future. Travel back and learn more about who you are. Open your consciousness to more than what you can see.

Dr. Biever is offering 1 1/2-hour PLR sessions to anyone interested in Past Life Regression work. PLR work can bring meaning, understanding, and insight to the present and it can reveal implications for working with related issues in the future. Some people have found very valuable benefits from individual sessions, i.e. help and healing in a variety of areas: spiritual, emotional, mental, physical and even economic or financial. A Love Offering is accepted.

 Support Groups

Love is Eternal Widows/Widowers  – Support Group

Samantha Decker Stump, M.S., Family Life Education, Certified Grief Recovery SpecialistSammi StumpAlternate MONDAY’S  (April 2, 16 & 30) from 1:00 – 3:00 PM in the Myrtle Fillmore Room

The isolation that so often is the aftermath of a personal loss can be greatly lessened by reaching out and sharing with others who have had similar experiences and understand you. Some of the emotions you may be experiencing could be: feeling out of the moment and inability to concentrate, feeling overwhelmed, deep alone-ness, desire to be isolated and hiding your pain from others, thinking one will never find love again. All of these systems are part of a normal grieving process and gradually lessen when the time is right for you. There is no right time to be over grief, it is a very individual process. Grief does not move in neat predictable stages but ebbs and flows back and forth; revisiting earlier challenges, and then having courage to reach out again. If you or someone you love is in grief reach out to them and let them know they are not alone and they are welcome at the Widow/Widower support group. ______________________________________________________________________________________

ACIM (A Course in Miracles) – Study Group

Reverend Hal Lafler

Friday’s from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. in the Serenity Room

Rev. Hal teaches on the first and third Friday afternoon of each month a new approach to A Course in Miracles.

At the request of those attending, Reverend Hal has agreed to start ACIM classes from the beginning. The first two sessions, February 17th, and March 3rd will be introductory classes with handouts. If this is of interest to you then just come; bring a friend… everyone is welcome.

As you know, lessons are the meditative process of integrating the principles of ACIM, i.e. taking the principles from the head to the heart. The lessons will be done at random, and will always be what the Holy Spirit has selected for any particular session. No one will be asked to read, but the format will permit discussions and questions.

ACIM is spiritual psychotherapy which is different from religious instruction. For more information call Reverend Hal Lafler at (623) 215-3080.
