Learn To Journey

Saturday, August 1 @ 10:00am – 4:00pm with Jeff Currier 

Learn to do Shamanic Journeying!  Journeying is a life changing technique that anyone can do. Learn how to go deep within to connect with your inner self, the divine, and the spirit world. Shamanic Journeying is the oldest method used by mankind to connect spiritually to all that is for personal empowerment, divination, and healing. Journeying shows you how to travel to non-ordinary reality, connecting to the web of life, connecting to other realms, and the divine to receive information for personal growth and development, healing as well as divining information to the questions that you may have. This is a hands-on, experiential class that gives you tools to create connections for divine guidance in your life. Cost: $75

Intuitive Readings with Ms. Margo, the Bone Reader

Friday, August 7 @ 3-8pm & Saturday, August 8 @ 10am-3pm

Meet Ms. Margo:  1/2 Chippewa Native Indian, 1/4 Ottawa, and 1/4 Mayan and Aztec Seer/Clairvoyant/Medium/Advisor

There are ONLY four who are chosen every 100 years. I represent the East known as “SEER” from my Clan.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been receiving visions and dreams of forthcoming events. As a young girl, I would share these with my parents and, inevitably, they would come true. Being the chosen one comes with great responsibility. I work with sacred native American items that are passed down through generations

Being a believer in God and Jesus, I knew that the “GIFT” I was born with is unique and not to be taken lightly. In addition, I was raised with catholic and traditional native teachings. I respect all religions and believe it is imperative to honor everyone’s individual relationship with their God/Creator and to support their spiritual journey.

I am guided by words, images, visions, dreams, dates, names, and numbers. I pick up feelings from the individual I am reading, as well as their friends, family, pets, people from Beyond, Angels, Spirit, and much more. When doing a reading, I use animal bones and stones passed down through generations, a beaver skin and American Indian Tarot Cards, although these items are not necessary for me to use during any session in order for me to pick up information. Each Item can represent up to 500 different things in a person’s life, let it be past, present, or future.  In addition, I also access information by touching objects, photos, and people.

COST:  $55 for10 minutes of reading, 20 minutes for $115; All include a CD Recording.
