I am leaving this Friday morning for Chicago with a good friend of mine from church. We are both very excited about being able to attend this conference. Another thing that really pleases me is I’ll get to meet dear Don and Bea on Friday for lunch. The first speaker, Marianne Willianson, isn’t speaking until 7pm. Gives us some free time before the conference starts.
Here are the people I will be seeing and what they will be talking about. Keynote Speakers are seen by everyone at the conference. For the other speakers, I had several different choices in the same time slots and it wasn’t easy deciding which one to see.

Marianne Williamson: KEYNOTE SPEAKER!

Learn to create a world that reflects the heart instead of shattering it. Marianne will guide you in learning the steps to slowing down in a world that is moving too fast, finding the peace within and staying empowered in today’s world. The world we want for ourselves and our children will not emerge from electronic speed but rather from a spiritual stillness that takes root in our souls.

John Holland: Learn To Awaken Your Psychic Strengths:
A One-day Intensive Workshop with Psychic Medium
This intensive workshop provides an opportunity to work with one of the country’s top mediums as you learn to awaken and develop your psychic intuitive skills and extend your awareness beyond your physical senses.
John shows you how to identify your psychic abilities through a number of highly interactive and practical exercises. Tap into the power of your psychic intuitive strengths and make them work for you in all areas of your personal and business life!
• What it means to be psychic or intuitive.
• Which ability is the strongest in you (Clairvoyance, Clairaudience, or Clairsentience)?
• Various meditation and visualization techniques you can use to expand your abilities.
• How to interpret Chakras and define their role in the physical and spiritual body.
• Auras, their colors and their interpretation.
• Reading for yourself and others.
• Psychic etiquette – the Do’s and Don’ts of using your psychic gift.
• Basic principles of connecting with Spirit.
…and so much more
John Holland teaches that a medium is very different from a psychic, and this workshop also provides a unique platform for those wishing to expand beyond the basic psychic skills into the realm of mediumship.June 20, 2007 at 3:19 pm #118838Pam BKeymaster
I wish so much that I could have gone to this weekend, but things are what they are, and it wasn’t meant to be :(
I have two new aquaintances from here in the town that I live in who are attending the whole conference, and I know they are going to the John Holland portions. So if you strike up a conversation with anyone and learn their names are Tiffany and Jackie please send me them a hug through them! :hearts:June 20, 2007 at 4:33 pm #118839
I’ll keep an eye out for a Tiffany and Jackie together. Should I hug Don and Bea too for you? :) I’m going to be hugging them anyway.
Katherine, on here, is going to the conference and meeting up with me too. We’ve gotten aquainted over the telephone. A friend, Laura, and her daughter are going to reserve a hotel restaurant table for all of us for dinner on Saturday. They are not going to the conference, but will just happen to be in Chicago. It’s just a two hour dinner break and everyone will be looking for a place to eat at.
Another member on here, will only be going to John Holland’s all day workshop. I twisted his arm to get him to sign up. :D He LIVES in Chicago. How could he not go? He seems excited about it.June 20, 2007 at 5:09 pm #118840KatherineParticipant
I will be going to Chicago also and can hardly wait to meet Gail. :love:
Gail and I will be attending some of the same seminars. Here’s my weekend:
Finding Peace Within
Wake up your spirit
Channeling with O’Brien
Light & Information: Beyond Energy Healing
Power of the Soul

Oh, I envy you all!! Sonia is delightful and her energy is contagious. Brian Weiss is a sweetie, as low-key as one can get just short of being asleep. Walsch’s book really resonated with me, although I admit to being concerned about his health and welfare. I can imagine some religions putting out a contract on him. As for JohnH, y’all already know what a good guy he is, both personally and professionally. If you think of it, tell I said hello.
Now I’m going off to sulk.

Wow!! Talk about coincidence. I just said that I would be seeing Immaculee in Chicago and had been told to read her book and then I receive this from Hay House.
I am going to have my husband tape it for me. I’m still in awe.
ImmaculJune 20, 2007 at 10:08 pm #118851
Immaculee’s story is an absolute must-read. It is terrifying yet incredibly inspiring. I’m in awe of her. :love:June 20, 2007 at 11:34 pm #118852Paula MaeParticipant

PaulaJune 21, 2007 at 12:08 pm #118858
Since I’ll be going on the cruise too, watch out for me as I stand by the side of the road, holding out my can for donations. :froggie:June 22, 2007 at 1:18 pm #118890DawnParticipantCarolynB;135268 wrote::hearts: And a big ME TOO!
