This event will feature a guided meditation by Christi Clemons Hoffman, toning, and music by Rama Inacio, channeling tones of the "angelics" and drawing from the world's myriad understandings and ways for making contact with angels and other benevolent energy-beings. The timing of this event is scheduled to coincide with sound healer and teacher Tom Kenyon’s In the Company of Angels meditation and concert in New York City as well as similar events throughout the world. From Tom Kenyon’s website: “This will be a deep immersion into the ‘spirit songs’ and vibratory energies of the Angelic realms. . . . We will draw the healing and transformational energies emanated by these ‘celestial ones’ into our bodies and minds for the purpose of profound personal transformation. This event promises to be a ‘watershed experience’ due to the potency and high vibratory quality of the Angelic realms.”

PSI presents renowned Author, Speaker, and Spiritual Teacher Lisette Larkins, Friday, September 18, 7:00pm, Charles Fillmore Chapel.  Lisette's fifth book, Above and Beyond: The Incredible True Story of Extraterrestrial Contact, will initiate you on your journey to become more fully human by revealing the marvels of your immortal heritage and the glorious adventures of eternal behind the veil.  

Wise mysterious visitors selected Lisette for a “wake-up call” spiritual initiation in 1987, which produced an understanding of how to discover what she (we) came here to do. She was a young wife and mother having paranormal experiences that only she could see and hear. On top of that, she was struggling with an abusive employer and a failing marriage. 

Lisette’s only possible escape was to apply the spiritual lessons that had first been provided by the strange visitors who had turned her world upside down:  “What we offer you is the opportunity for us to love you, to mentor you home". 

This way we get to be angels.”In relating her incredible story, you will learn why ET contact is the ultimate spiritual intervention:
~ What is the purpose of ET contact? 
~ How does it serve the individual contactee and the human?
~ What purpose do crop circles serve?
~ Why did the ETs suggest developing the practice of manifestation?
~ Why so many opinions if aliens are friends or foes?
Learn more about Lisette and her other books at www.LisetteLarkins.com

Join us as Lisette relates her incredible story and discusses her latest book.  Lisette has donated a limited number of her books to PSI to distribute free to the audience for a book signing after the discussion.   

Tickets $20 at the door.

HeartSong Kirtan-Chanting in the Autumnal Equinox, Tuesday, September 22, 2015, 6:45pm - 8:45pm, Temple SPACE. READY FOR THE FALL SEASON?  Seasons change while the Earth continues its journey through space and time. In our modern society, we can sometimes get disconnected from the flow and rhythm of the earth's nature as well as our own. Rituals at the Autumn Equinox help to honour the balance between light and dark. To this end, Unity Temple on the Plaza is excited to be hosting HeartSong Kirtan, who will lead a "Chanting In the Autumnal Equinox" kirtan.  We hope you'll join us for an evening of sacred chanting as we all come together in support of each other and the earth to make this shift from summer to fall and light to dark with more grace and ease.

Chant sheets and instrucations are available for those new to kirtan.

Learn more about HeartSong Kirtan at www.heartsongkirtan.weebly.com or email nhien@unitytemple.com.
