To live in health, happiness and prosperity is everyone's birthright, whether we choose to follow a certain path is our individual choice. No dogma or belief system is imposed upon anyone. 

We are all encouraged to find our own path, with the love and support of like-minded people who approach the search for knowledge and understanding with an open and loving mind, always ready to adapt to change.

We hope you will join us and begin to see the world as beautiful as it really is, and see that beauty in your fellow man regardless of his/her choices...

Blessings,  Rev. Kathy Kerston, Director

There are no random acts in our life. On Earth lives may be sacrificed to save others. Forgiveness and letting go of anger and lastly the power of love may also be a part of our experience. Who will you meet in Heaven?" FAMILY, FRIEND or FOE!!!

and  Joshua Zoppi, 

Shamans have been the Bridges for Spirit since the Prehistoric Era. Connecting with the Powers of Nature, Ancestors, and Spirit Beings, Shamans have forged a way for all peoples in every culture to have a direct experience with the Sacred. This workshop will provide the very basic practices of most every Shaman around the world. Powerful transformative healing is a natural byproduct of engaging in this work. Be initiated into the sacred realm of Spirit! 
Workshop Fee $50
Saturday, Sept., 15, at 1:00 PM
Revs. Kathy Kerston & John Drinkard
Trauma is a penetrating wound that separates us from our sense of self and causes us to feel personally defective, inadequate, or unworthy. When we experience traumatic events, they become stuck in our bodies; and whenever we replay these events, the result is stress. In this hands-on workshop, Revs. Kathy and John will explore embodied meditation, somatic experiencing, and tapping. They will help create a safe haven so that wounded people can learn to love, forgive, and trust themselves to navigate in the world again.
