PSI Presents Dannion Brinkley, Friday, March 27, 2015, 7:00pm, Charles Fillmore Chapel. “Seven Lessons From Heaven”. Dannion Brinkley is a New York Times bestselling author and a popular lecturer worldwide, in the fields of spirituality, prophecy, self-development, alternative medicine and hospice. Dannion has appeared on hundreds of radio and TV shows, including Oprah, Larry King, ABC, NBC and CNN. Dannion’s book Saved by the Light was a made-for-television movie and was one of the highest ranked of all time.

Dannion invites you to join him in the celebration of life, as he takes you on an adventurous journey through the spiritual wonders of the afterlife. In 1975, after being struck dead by a bolt of lightning, Dannion spent 28 minutes on a guided tour of the other side. During this time, Dannion was infused with the Wisdom the Ages by thirteen beings of light. In the years 1989 and 1997, two more near-death experiences sent Dannion on fantastic voyages through the heavens. As a result, he received an in-depth education on the meaning of conscious living and loving, on both sides of the veil.

Presently, the entire planet finds itself transitioning through a shift in conscious reality; a shift unprecedented in the history of humanity. In order for the quality of our lives to remain intact, there are many important themes and lessons we need to incorporate into our everyday existence. Dannion’s lively and humorous presentation of Seven Lessons from Heaven will teach you how to:
*Remember who you are   *Discover your purpose *Develop greater intuition *Connect with the spirit realm *Prepare for Earth changes
*Understand the destiny of divinity and much more.
Books will be for sale and a book signing will follow the program. Please join us for a fascinating visit to the other side. www.dannion.com

$20 - Tickets at the door only with cash or check.

Money-Integrating Your Spiritual and Material Life, Saturday, April 25, 2015, 1:00pm - 4:00pm, Classroom D. Because money has always been a private and often secret aspect of our lives, understanding how money serves our spirituality brings opportunities to claim our full potential.  Clarity around money is an essential factor of our well-being. There is great value in knowing we are not alone with money challenges and that there are smart and creative ways to build new pathways towards financial and personal freedom.  
 
We will talk about Money Biographies, how the brain processes and stores events from the past that relate to money and how developmental realities determine financial patterns and beliefs.   We will learn about the 8 Money Archetypes and take a money type quiz.  You will find out that "where you are" is not the same as "who you are" as you recognize which energies are currently dominant in your relationship to money and how to manage them. 

If you are stuck financially or personally, this workshop can open new doors towards purpose and prosperity. 

Please contact Vivian Faulkner to register at (913) 205-9517 or vivian@solutionmoneycoachingcenter.com

Cost: $25
