Akashic Records Readings with Anne Schmidt

Saturday, March 25th from 10:30-3:30pm by appointment: $80 for a one hour reading

The Akashic Records, commonly referred to as the book of life, are the individual records of a soul from the instant it leaves its point of origin until the end of time. There are many reasons to have an Akashic Records reading including: You are at a transition point in your life, and need help with your next steps; You would like to gain access to a past life; You need to understand why you are in a job; or relationship that isn’t working for you. The information gained from an Akashic Records Reading will provide guidance for how to work through patterns that are present in one’s current life and opportunities for growth and direction.

tarot soul speak

Tarot Soul Speak with Cheryl Sprague

Beginner’s Series: A six month series held Sunday afternoons from 10:00 – 1:00pm @ the DG Sanctuary. Dates for upcoming series: Apr 2, May 7, Jun 4, Jul 16, Aug 27, Sept 24

You will be asked to be the Fool, allowing yourself to leap into your imagination and intuition. We will be working with many decks so that we can expand not only our thoughts, but our sight. We will do meditations with the cards; create your own spread; read for each other; share ideas to grow, expand, explore. The Tarot is a wonderful guide in life’s journey. We will tap into this energy together so that you use the cards for your own guidance as well as others.

Advanced Series: Same dates as the above, held from 2:00 – 5:00pm @ the DG Sanctuary. Dates for upcoming series: Apr 2, May 7, Jun 4, Jul 16, Aug 27, Sept 24

We will focus on exercising our intuitive muscle. We will open ourselves up to what we observe in the outside world, learning what and how we connect with nature and what messages it has to share with each of us. We will focus on combining these observations, building our trust in our inner voice and our relationship with the cards. The class is not as structured as the beginners series – This is where we open up and I hand the floor over to you. It is time for you to share what cannot be contained once a card is laid before you.
