The Celestine Prophecy (2006):
Starring Matthew Settle, Thomas Kretschmann, Sarah Wayne Callies
99 minutes

What if Heaven and Earth are the same place?

A set of ancient scrolls, known as the Celestine Prophecy, has been discovered in the rain forests of Peru.

Disillusioned and temporarily rudderless, John Woodson is about to experience a dramatic and profound metamorphosis.

Through a mysterious set of coincidences, he finds himself on an adventure to Peru in search of ancient scrolls known as the Celestine Prophecy. The prophecy and its nine key insights predict a new awakening that redefines human life and provides a glimpse into a completely spiritual culture on Earth.

Resistant at first, skeptical and unsure, John finds that each step he takes, each person he encounters, leads him to a new awakening. It is only in this letting go that he finds his destiny and comes to understand the meaning that had escaped him when his adventure began.

(This film is an adaptation of James Redfield's best-selling novel)

Morning Presentation:
Joan will explain how her Near-Death Experience and the drive to re-experience the frequencies of Home led to a life of healing! In 1989, while bicycling on the Pacific Coast Highway, Joan was struck by a truck. For years, Joan researched and read and tried different ways to re-experience the elation of her NDE. In 2007 she found a way back Home—a way to experience the love and peace again. After just a couple of Reconnective Healing sessions, she experienced several physical healings and a Kundalini Awakening. Joan will share her story and give you an opportunity to Reconnect with the frequencies of Home.

Saturday, May 9, 2015, from 10:00 to Noon at Edgar Cayce's A.R.E. (the Association for Research and Enlightenment), 67th Street and Atlantic Avenue, Virginia Beach.

Suggested donation: $10.00 at the door. No one turned away, capacity permitting.

After the meeting, all are invited to a local restaurant to continue the conversation.

Afternoon Workshop from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.
"Activate Your Ability to Become a Healer: Explore the New Frequencies of Healing"
The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself: Reconnective Healing is a return to an optimal state of balance. It completely transcends traditional energy healing techniques. It is neither a therapy nor a treatment, as it does not address symptoms. It is something much, much more. Discover how to evolve your entire being on all levels: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and more! Learn how you too can access these new frequencies of healing energy, light, and information for yourself, your family, friends, and pets. You will also learn how:

  • Reconnective Healing is different from any other form of healing
  • It has been shown to restructure DNA
  • Scientific Research confirms Reconnective Healing
  • Spontaneous permanent healings are occurring every day
  • You too can feel and interact with the Reconnective Healing Frequencies

Joan and fellow NDEr Ellyn Dye will make sure everyone in attendance will have the opportunity to feel the Reconnective frequencies. Children are welcome!

A donation of $15 is requested for the workshop.

On Sunday, May 10 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., Joan Fowler will give a Presentation / Workshop very similar to the Saturday program described above; so tell your friends and family about it!
