As Steve Jobs lay dying, his last words were a joyful, “Oh!  Wow!”  This iconic figure, who changed forever how the world communicates, was overwhelmed with the expansive beauty of the new world he was entering.

October 17: SpiritTalk – Break on Through to the Other Side
In physics, the first law of thermodynamics is that energy can’t be created or destroyed – it just changes form.  “Life” is an energy, and doesn’t cease to exist when we’re no longer in physical form. Happy Medium Jonna Rae has been tapping into the spirit world since she was a child, and she’s eager to share her abilities with you.  For this Third Tuesday: Reaching a Happy Medium evening, come get answers to your questions for loved ones in spirit, and learn how to go into a higher state of consciousness, so you can connect with them yourself.  SpiritTalk is always a powerful evening of love, connection and healing.

November 21:  Building Your Own Crystal Grid
