You will experience a calling of the ancestors, watching butterfly dancers and listening to a drumming ensemble, as well as hearing about Native American history through stories and song. You'll hear Windwalker's award-winning water blessing song and hear her beautiful flute.

A Round Table of the Past, Present and Future
May 22, 29, 2-4:00 p.m.
Are you interested in the pre-history of the earliest civilzations such as Atlantis, Ancient Egypt and Mesapotamia? or today's economic and financial trends in relation to the rise and fall of empires? Or what has been discovered by NASA but not publically released? While most people are looking at the present an future in a linear fashion, we live in a cyclical world and universe where everything is connected to everything else.

This will not be a lecture series, but a forum for a limited number of people to discuss these and any other topics that add to our group interest. The fact that you are a member of the Philosophical Library says that you have been thinking "out of the box" and have some gift to give to us all, be it spiritual, historical, or of future concerns. Maybe you have a book to introduce that has changed your perspective. If this appeals to you, please contact me. This could be a lot of enjoyment that will broaden our outlook and meet some interesting friends.

The Soul, The Ancestors, and the Family Tree with Denny Johnson, founder of the Rayid Model
May 30, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., May 31, 4-8:00 p.m.
Healers and Practitioners—this one's for you!
Most of your ancestors in the spirit world are struggling without the necessary knowledge to progress. Imagine being able to talk to your deceased ancestors, and with some simple instructions begin to help them clear damaging influences from themselves and their family tree. This approach has many benefits for you and your clients. Helping spirits improve their condition of love can begin to dissolve generations of pain, suffering and disease. Releasing blockages in our family tree can bring immeasurable joy to multiple generations, including people still alive on earth and their relatives!

The intention of the class is to give information directly to the spirits in the room on how to progress in the spirit world, as well as how participants can improve their own soul progression. In the follow-up session on Day 2, the results will be spot checked by contacting a few of the spirits (via mediumship) to see how they responded to the presentation. You will receive handouts and suggestions on how to continue to help your families on a daily or weekly basis and be guided to online resources to support your learning.

Cost: Donation—pay what you can. You can secure your spot with $10 paid through the library's Website using the Event Payment button, or calling Keith Smith (760) 489-6889.
Info: Keith (760) 489-6889 or Jon Miles—jon@milesresearch.com.
