About this Event

Higher Power

Is there a God or a Higher Power? How do you find grounding? What is the purpose of meditation and prayer? Is it empowering or defeating, and so many other questions?

This day’s theme neither supports nor contradicts any religion. If you believe in God, then this day will strengthen your personal connection with the God of your understanding whatever it may be. If you do not believe in or are unsure about the existence of God or a Higher Power, then this is a rare opportunity to help you put closure to that question and become viscerally cognizant of the benefits of such a connection and how to achieve them in a way that is comfortable for you.

An up-to-date list of teachers/healers will be listed prior to each event.
