"It is not all of life to live, nor all of death to die;
for each one is the birth of the other..."

— Edgar Cayce reading 369-3

While life on earth is bound by time, life on the other side is as timeless and infinite as our soul. On the other side, we are able to move beyond our limited five earthly senses as we spiritually evolve ever forward to find our way Home. 

The Cayce readings indicate that life and death are one continuous experience, and that “stepping through God’s other door” doesn’t stop the interplay between the two worlds. During this inspiring event, we will explore the soul’s journey in all its facets as we learn that death is nothing to fear, but is part and parcel of our life’s continuous spiritual journey.

Lessons Learned from Near-Death
Join us as we explore neurosurgeon and Proof of Heaven author Dr. Eben Alexander’s profound near death experience and what he learned while he was plunged into the deepest realms of consciousness, as he shares the next phase of his journey: to understand the true origins of consciousness and uncover ways to cultivate a state of harmony with the universe and our higher purpose. Karen Newell, co-founder of “Sacred Acoustics,” will guide you through a special meditation designed to create an expansive internal state, allowing you to access intuition, manifest healing, find creative inspiration, and obtain spiritual guidance.

Our Soul's Incarnations and Life In Between
Special guest Corinne Cayce, MA helps us understand the stages of grief and how grief never really leaves us, but evolves with us over time. Psychotherapist and regressionist Peter Woodbury, MSW explores the cycle of karma and grace from the Edgar Cayce readings and takes you on a guided group past-life regression for soul healing. And in a unique presentation, world-renowned ghostbuster, healer, and psychic Echo Bodine will share fascinating true ghost stories and explore the reasons why some souls choose to be earth-bound—and how you can prevent this from happening to you!

Messages of Love and Hope
Some that have crossed over remain to provide support and guidance to those still on earth, through afterlife communication. You will witness the unending connection with loved ones as psychic medium J. Marie shares what she has learned from those who have crossed over and demonstrates afterlife communication with random readings for audience members. And, angel messenger Karen Paolino will teach you powerful alignment techniques that simplify connection to your own Divinity that can also help you connect and communicate in oneness with your angels, guides, and loved ones in spirit.

Experience the wisdom and comfort we can receive from those who have crossed over and learn how these glimpses of beyond provide us with reason to believe that life is eternal and love is everlasting, and celebrate the boundless nature of the human soul! 

Don't miss this favorite annual event! You will leave with the tools of inner peace and resolution that come from understanding your soul's journey and what it means for you today.

Eben Alexander III MD: After decades as a physician and teacher at Harvard Medical School and elsewhere, renowned academic neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander thought he knew how the brain, mind, and consciousness worked. A transcendental Near-Death Experience (NDE) during a week-long coma from an inexplicable brain infection changed all of that – completely. Memories of his life had been completely deleted, yet he awoke with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm – more real than this earthly one! Since his 2008 NDE he has been reconciling his rich spiritual experience with contemporary physics and cosmology. We are conscious in spite of our brain. By probing deeply into our own consciousness, we transcend the limits of the human brain, and of the physical-material realm. His story offers a crucial key to the understanding of reality and human consciousness. A pioneering scientist and thought leader in consciousness studies, Dr. Alexander has been a guest on Dr. Oz, Oprah, and many other media programs. His most recent book, Living in a Mindful Universe: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Heart of Consciousness, (co-authored with Karen Newell) has garnered accolades from many scientists around the world who study the mind-body question and the nature of consciousness. His earlier books, Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife and The Map of Heaven: How Science, Religion, and Ordinary People Are Proving the Afterlife, have collectively spent more than two years atop the New York Times and international bestseller lists.
