Change Maker, How My Brother’s Death Woke Up My Life


Location
: Online - Members Only Book Club

I am delighted to have my award-winning book: “Change Maker, How My Brother’s Death Woke Up My Life” chosen as the November book selection of the month.


Change Maker describes my discovery that I could communicate with my 37 year old brother who died in 1995, even though I initially had no psychic or spiritual abilities. I frequently questioned my sanity through months of spiritual exploration yet learned that the afterlife is real and accessible. Each chapter of Change Maker includes an “Illumination” – guidance, suggestions, encouragement, and inspiration for readers who wish to purse their own spiritual journey.

I look forward to our discussion and answering questions about my experiences, book publishing, and additional resources to facilitate after-death communication and inner explorations.

Saturday, October 10, 2020 2:00 PM EDT

Location: Online

Based on high demand for the original session, this 2nd encore event is scheduled!

I am so excited to present my free webinar teaching people how to continue contact with their deceased loved ones living in the afterlife. 

I discovered the ability to communicate with my 37 year old brother David six weeks after he died in 1995 even though I had no psychic or spiritual awareness. Seeing my brother again along with my deceased grandparents and friends that had passed was the most profound moment of my life.

It took me 20 years to find the courage to share this story. Multiple times I thought I was losing my mind yet this experience felt right. It made sense to me. I quietly explored the afterlife, read hundreds of books, attended dozens of workshops, and became skilled at teaching after-death communication techniques.

Come join me as I share my thoughts and teach YOU that we do not die. We live forever. And, we can have a continuing relationship with our loved ones living beyond the veil.

Lots of time for questions and answers during this enlightening 90 minute presentation on the afterlife!
