Edgar Cayce's Wisdom & The Four Directions of the Medicine Wheel: Sharing the Shaman's Path to Transformation
...he who understands nature walks close with God. 1904-2

The Cayce readings tell us we are “co-creators” in this world and the Inca Shamans say we have the power “to dream our world into being.” As a Shaman trained in the Peruvian tradition and a former 17-year employee of the ARE in Virginia Beach, Nancy will compare the Shamanic traditions with Edgar Cayce’s wisdom. Over the weekend, she will describe the transformative power of the Medicine Wheel, the role of Nature in both Shamanism and Edgar Cayce’s work, as well as leading experiential exercises to enhance intuitive development and paths for personal transformation.

This weekend retreat will include:
- A review of similarities between Shamanism & Cayce's perspective on energy, nature, and life
- Nancy's personal journey working with dreams and intuition to become a practicing Shaman
- How the Four Directions can be used to set a path for individual development
- The transformative power of the Medicine Wheel for releasing old patterns and reclaiming energy
- Intuitive group work and a Soul's Destiny Journey to the Upper Realms
- Experiential exercises to enhance intuitive development & personal transformation
- Guided Shamanic Journey to discover each person's Spirit Animal Guide.
Nancy Chrisbaum provides audiences with a unique perspective by comparing insights from the Edgar Cayce readings with the indigenous traditions of ancient Peru. A staff member at Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. for 17 years and a graduate of the Four Winds’ Light Body School, Nancy is an author, filmmaker, Reiki Master and Certified Luminous Energy Healer. 
A practicing Shaman who lectures on intuition, dreams, past-life journeying, and energy healing, Nancy has co-authored a recently published book on those subjects: Awaken Your Inner Voice: A Guide to Intuition, Dreams, Meditation, Past Lives and Your Soul’s Creative Purpose.
Her natural, light-hearted approach to profound subjects engages audiences, and her guided Shamanic journeys allow them to open up to their deeper selves. In addition to lecturing and leading workshops, Nancy offers individual energy healing sessions in-person or by phone www.programsforchange.com.

Local A Search for GOD

(ASFG) Spiritual Growth Study Groups 

Groups normally meet for 2 hours weekly at the home of one of the members. In each meeting they read & discuss the ASFG material, report their application experiences, share dreams, and meditate together. Many groups stay together for decades providing each other with valuable mutual support and long lasting friendships.
The ASFG material was written to be helpful to individuals from all walks of life, all religious beliefs, and all backgrounds. Though this supportive small group environment you can form a personal relationship with the Divine with yourself and within your fellow man. Together, as part of a group, you can study and work with meditation, dreams, intuition, and universal laws. You can learn how you can be a "light to the waiting world," develop better communication with the Divine, improve cooperation with all aspects of your inner self, and discover more meaning and purpose in your life.
