“The Seers of India – Ancient Wisdom for Modern-Day Living” w/ Joey Bujold

The ancient seers of India understood very well the connection between body, mind and spirit. It is said that one of the main obstacles on the journey to enlightenment is compromised well-being.

Drawing upon concepts from Yogic and Vedic philosophy as well as Ayurveda (the holistic system of well-being from India), the speaker will provide a simple, yet practical outlook on how we can accomplish said balance.

“Connecting to the Star People: Starseeds, Telepathy & More…” w/ Carrie Chilcott

 “All things are connected” Chief Seattle 1854

The ancestors tell us that we all spoke one language. We could communicate with all things; the four legged, the winged ones, the swimmers and the crawlers. With this ancient language we could talk to the stone people, the standing tall ones (trees) and the plant people. We have to get back and uses this ancient language to speak to the star nations as we are the star seeds of this star they call earth.

This language is telepathy which we all have this gift it has just been repressed for generations. As the great Joni Mitchell said in her song she wrote Woodstock. “We are star dust we are golden and we made the devils bargain we have to get back to the garden” NASA has proven that.

Yes our bones are made up of the exact same composite as the stars. Signs have been coming to us and many others through this awaking. Your star nations are trying to contact you. This workshop will include some meditation tips to see and meet your star nations as well as signs to look out for that may indicate the Star Nations have already been reaching out to you. Come and find out you can do to start to consciously communicating with your star nations.

Carrie Chilcott is a Bloodline Seer, a Reiki Master/Teacher & Reflexologist that practices out of Luminous Energetic Pathways Sacred Centre in Burlington.
