Manifestation Made Simple Spring 2020

$25

with Angie Butler Welch

Calendar Mar 31, 2020 at 12 pm

Manifestation - the ability to create or attract things into being. Relationships, Jobs, Money… etc. You’ve probably heard a lot about the Law of Attraction, but do you really know HOW to manifest your dreams and desires? Is it really possible? Yes, and you do it all the time! In this fun, interactive workshop Angie will take you step by step through the process - explaining the four simple, yet necessary steps to manifest the life you want to live! Additionally, you’ll learn the common pitfalls, and how to avoid them. All materials provided, although we encourage you to bring paper to take notes. Angie Welch Bio: From a very early age I was able to see and connect with angels and people who had passed, and have been delivering those messages since I was a teenager. As a lifelong spiritual student, I have spent many years learning and nurturing these abilities. In more recent years, I found myself drawing and painting, while channeling messages. This newfound gift led to my offering of "Art Mediumship". Leap of Faith is the name I gave my personal journey to create and deliver the messages of my soul, as well as the name I bestowed upon my office (Leap of Faith Soul Space). When working with a client, I am able to connect with the angels, your guides, and loved ones in spirit who have passed. When doing art mediumship I create a personal intuitive piece, complete with the message(s) that Spirit wants me to share with you. As so much of our life depends on free will, I also offer "Akashic Records" readings, perfect for when you need guidance as to how certain choices may unfold in the future. The "Akashic Records" is the energy dimension that records the eternal journey of your soul and offers profound insight, understanding and healing energy. As a healer, I am trained in the powerful and effective healing modality of Pranic Healing. I am honored to have my spiritual gifts and feel it is my responsibility to share the truth that love is eternal, life is a gift of learning, and we are all connected. I would be honored to work with you as a client, or as a student in one of many spiritual development classes. Namaste. FMI on your instructor, please visit www.angiewelch.com

The program is designed to raise awareness about suicide risk factors and warning signs and to provide information on what practical steps to take if suicide is suspected. While focused on students and youth, the information and skills you will learn are appropriate for use with anyone who might be feeling suicidal, no matter what their age. Students who attend say they feel much more confident and comfortable talking about suicide.

Windowsill Gardening SUPER SATURDAY Spring 2020

$5

with Trisha Smith

Calendar Apr 11, 2020 at 12 pm

If you have a sunny windowsill, you can grow microgreens for (almost) instant gratification as well as start seedlings to plant in your garden later in spring. Most vegetables need outdoor sun and soil to grow to maturity, but tasty and nutritious microgreens are harvested young, and seedlings will be planted outside when conditions allow. This is a hands-on workshop-prepare to get dirty! Soil, seed, containers, and printed instructional handouts are provided. Trisha is UMaine Extension's Community Education Assistant for Home Horticulture in Piscataquis County.

Transformation 101: The Underlying Fears SUPER SATURDAY Spring 2020

$5

with Alicia Randolph-Lucchesi

Calendar Apr 11, 2020 at 12:30 pm

Until you listen to yourself and stand up for what YOU need, “they” win. Whether it's fearful friends, begrudging family, social media overload, well-meaning and well-educated physicians, or misinformed newscasts, my goal is for you to feel a shift in how you perceive and react to information. We'll uncover marketing scams, how to shop and prep food, spices, and inexpensive, clean foods to have on hand.

Who Wants to be a Beekeeper? Spring 2020

$5

with Owen Blackden

Calendar Apr 11, 2020 at 12:30 pm

Bees are all the buzz and for good reason, too! Since the late 1990s, beekeepers around the world have observed the mysterious and sudden disappearance of bees, and report unusually high rates of decline in honeybee colonies (greenpeace.org). An estimated ? of all food is pollination dependent, so no bees = no food! In addition to bee conservation and habitat protection, the benefits of beekeeping are numerous. Honey not only tastes great, it also has many health benefits. Produce your own beeswax for candles, creams, lip balms and more. Bees will pollinate your gardens and fruit trees, making them more healthy. Please join Owen Blackden, an experienced local beekeeper for this one-night workshop where he’ll cover the history of beekeeping, present day beekeeping, equipment, and best placement for keeping bees. Owen has been keeping bees for 15 years and is a past president of the Penquis Beekeeper chapter of Maine State Beekeepers.
