Past Life Regression and the Power of Language

Join us for a past life regression in collaboration with the power of language. Dive deep into the past with safe guidance and discover the dialogue of your soul. Giving voice to our Spirit as it processes the experience of our previous lives, we are able to deconstruct language patterns that were formed at that time that continue to arise in the present. Giving words to images and visions from the past allows us to unravel their unconscious tethering to feelings in our present lives providing opportunity for healing through reframing the story into a self-empowering narrative.

What to expect from the experience: Be led into a past life that is in connection to current feelings. Allow the images to surface for healing. Write about your visions after the regression and label the feelings that are coming forth for acknowledgement. Images and visions become less fearful and binding when we are able to give them voice and consideration. Reframe the dialogue of the past with rich powerful language to bring more clarity and peace to the present. There will be opportunity to share your experiences with the group with further healing insights provided by Barret and Bhairavi. Reiki-infused journals by Bhairavi will be available for sale, or feel free to bring your own to use during the event.

Good News! with Barret and Charlie

“A teacher of God is anyone who chooses to be one. His qualifications consist solely in this; somehow, somewhere he has made a deliberate choice in which he did not see his interests as apart from someone else’s.” -ACIM, Manual for Teachers. Are you willing to be a teacher of God? It is simply the choice to be kind and loving rather than fearful and judgmental. Did you know that you’ve already made that choice? We will be going deeper into the essential characteristics of this way of living, which include honesty, gentleness, tolerance and joy!

Barret Hedeen and Charlie Roberts are students as well as teachers of A Course in Miracles and its thought system of love. They’ll be teaching and guiding this event with an abundance of light-heartedness and laughter, so helpful in dispelling the ego’s fears and misconceptions. There will be plenty of opportunities for questions as well.

 About the teachers:

Charlie Roberts has been on a spiritual journey for over 40 years. He was introduced to ACIM in 2009 and shares his experiences with joy and humor. Charlie leads several ACIM study groups each week and works with individuals on a one-on-one basis. He is also a practitioner of Pure BioEnergy Therapy, a healing technique that aids the body in healing itself.

Barret Hedeen is the author of two books about his spiritual path, Questions for Jand the Love that He Gave Me, as well a collection of poetry entitled Poems for J. He is the creator of The Witness Energy Healing, a non-dualistic form of healing to help you remember the truth that lies within. Barret leads retreats and workshops around the country, with an emphasis on joy, wholeness and healing.

A Soul’s Journey – Uncovering Your Past Lives

What things have you experienced before this life? What influences do they have on you presently? Where were you before you were here? Our past lives provide the backstory to the life we are living here. The more we know about them, the more we know about ourselves.

Barret has been assisting souls like yourself in seeing more of themselves, as the creator of The Witness Energy Healing, a healing system based on non-duality. In this experiential time together, you will explore what karma has led to the experience that you are now having, with the goal of coming to release it and know your true self, one of love and of peace.
