Sky Meditation—Add a New Dimension to Your Life
November 6, 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Live naturally in the present moment and enjoy deep states of inner peace. The key to meditation is letting go, not trying to control anything. Beginners, as well as long-term meditators, can get frustrated because they find it difficult to quiet the mind. The SKY Meditation course is a step-by-step practical approach to making your meditation experience easy and enjoyable. It's a perfect technique for beginners, as well as an invaluable way to enhance any techniques you may already practice. During this introductory session you will learn simple yet powerful breathing techniques that can help you go deeper into meditation as well as experience a deep, guided meditation.

$10 Library donation requested.
RSVP required by Nov. 5 to Michael michael@skymeditation.org; (805) 705-6235. Michael Fischman is a leader in the field of personal development
and author of the multiple-award-winning memoir, Stumbling into Infinity: An Ordinary Man in the Sphere of Enlightenment.
Creation and Manifestation Thru Drumming
November 8, 1-4:00 p.m.
Come ready, prepared and open to becoming the highest vision you hold for yourself. The ceremonies that we do together as we honor each other's thoughts, words and actions creates space for us to hear our own best wisdom. We become more conscious of how our actions in this moment will affect that vision. In this workshop, you will be led in a heart drum opening that will allow you to connect to the true essence of what you want to create. You will have a chance to move and allow your body to speak its wisdom; for anything that is holding us back emotionally and mentally could eventually manifest in our bodies, if it hasn’t already done so. There will be experiential exercises that help us get to the core of what could be in our way, but mostly we will be building our dream and infusing it with the power of the drum, thought, movement and gratitude. So, join us for this sweet time of creation and manifestation.

$25. RSVP required by November 6 to Nancy Marks, (858) 405-2101 or nancyemarks@yahoo.com.
Angel Messages

Field of Consciousness
November 11 and 25, 5-6:00 p.m.
I am inviting all those who feel the call, to come and form a group with the purpose of joining in heart and spirit to create a Light grid, in a space of Love, Light and Oneness. We will share needs and wants, do clearings and meditations to transmute negative energy, raise our vibration and the vibration of those connected to the grid. The Light shall set you free! If this resonates with you at the time, you are encouraged to reach higher as humanity needs your help to complete its transition. Namaste! Izabelle Joie Doucet, Minister and Energy Worker.

$10 donation. Info: doucetizabelle88@gmail.com; (760) 658-5866.
