Schedule, Lecture & Speaker Descriptions

Keynote - Saturday 4/14, 7:30pm


Each of our nine bodies is associated with homeopathic frequencies and colors. Dowsing for the correct body (or bodies) to find the source of the physical weakness will make it much easier to affect change. Ancestral energies (those are usually found in the connective body) are often disease energies such as typhoid, tuberculosis, malaria, and syphilis. These energies weaken organs that seem totally unrelated to the original disease. The lecture will give many details on dowsing charts to start your own explorations.

Gisela Kroeger Hoffman - Colorado. Gisela Kroeger Hoffman, is the daughter of renowned herbalist and lecturer, Hanna Kroeger.  Hanna passed away in 1998 and Gisela (after a very strong message by Spirit) took over her work and her businesses.  Gisela's passion is to bring her mother's work to the forefront of how medicine is practiced, through the use of computerized dowsing.  She is partnered with medical practitioners to build over 100 small natural healing clinics combining allopathic medicine with natural modalities all over Colorado and California.  Her lectures are full of amazing and delightful stories of her experiences. www.PeacefulMeadow.com

Transforming Roundup Diseases

In my health consulting 99% of my clients have four or more of the following issues: fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, depression, body aches, joint pains, indigestion, and brain fog. These symptoms are becoming epidemic and increasingly severe; so much so that we think of them a “normal” part of aging. When the symptoms become severe, they are labeled with official names such as diabetes, chronic fatigue, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, arteriosclerosis, heart disease, dementia, and cancer. In the last 20 years we have seen (1) a massive increase in the use of the herbicide Roundup and (2) a massive rise in the early symptoms of early aging in our children and grandchildren. The workshop will show how glyphosate (the active ingredient of Roundup) does this damage and what we can do about it. We will dowse charts to identify specific toxins, parasites, and infections and show how to transmute the effects of Roundup.

James & Jenni Emery

See What You Want to See - 7 Steps to Precognitive Viewing

Students receive a quick view of the steps to using your third eye to better your universe.

Precognitive viewing is taking your intuition, the vibrational field of yourself and others, the energy that is yours and that surrounds you and, your spiritual gifts and turning them into real visions through your 3rd eye that are so real they will activate your human senses in them thus creating a 5th dimension day dream so to speak, that you can see and feel what you are intuitively given. When you learn to use this you can guide yourself or others through a spiritual journey that is amazing. It will also help everyone to understand their true purpose here because you will be given that information through a precognitive vision once you master this process. I know everyone can do it with practice and exercising these steps.

Discovering your Soul’s Purpose with Lunar Nodes

In your birth chart, the lunar nodes – known as the north and south node – hold the keys to your destiny, your life lessons and what you experienced in past lives. Most importantly, your life purpose is encoded into the north and south node of the moon. The north and south node points are directly opposite each other. They’re not planetary bodies but rather, points that take into account the relationship between the sun, the moon and the earth at the time of our birth. 

It’s not necessary to have a background in astrology to access the treasure trove of information your lunar nodes contain. They are a stand-alone tool that can be used to bring your life’s purpose into focus and gain deeper insight to the gifts and challenges you brought with you to this lifetime.

In this class we will use a chart to determine the astrology signs of your north and south nodes using your birth day, month and year. Once you have the sign of your north and south node, a handout will provide some basic information about how that lunar node combination shapes and directs your life. For those who want to further explore their lunar nodes, we will discuss how you can go online to create a free astrology chart and determine the house placement of your lunar nodes as well.

She has published several ebooks, including Timeline and Identity Shifts: The New Science of Reality Creation; Portals of Spirit: Multidimensional Doorways for Healing and Transformation; Channeling Into the Next Dimension: A Handbook for Opening your Psychic Senses; The Future is Here Now: Steps to Accessing Fifth-Dimensional Consciousness;  Messages from the Future: Adopting Your Future Self as Guide and Mentor; Abundance Magic: 44 Steps to Manifesting the Future of Your Dreams; and The Metaphysics of Radiant Health.
