B. Calico-Hickey will share about “Healing through A Course in Miracles.” Many early childhoods did not learn how to engage with life through Love only. Personally, my family of origin was skilled at ‘being victims’ of the world they saw. My training in ‘victim thinking’ was skilled. Through the use of A Course in Miracles, I began to Re Learn a Whole New Way of Thinking, to see My Self as Healed, as the Salvation of the World, as Only Love. Through this process, ACIM promises that we will achieve ’the Happy Dream’. We will awaken from the ’nightmare of our own projection’. Mine included ’terminal cancer’ and ‘foreclosure’. Owning my abilities to create Nightmares or Fantasies, I now have the skills to choose, & free will to participate in Joy while choosing not to participate in fear. All is explained in the text and lessons of a Course in Miracles. Read more

While listening to Bill O’Donnell’s Father’s Day speech, Linda pieced together the memories she had about her absentee father and realized she should do a storytelling about her ankle tattoo, which immortalizes him. She designed this tattoo two years ago, while in Pago Pago, American Samoa, where her father’s two heroic sea voyages connected. In 1932, Russell Dickinson attempted to sail around-the-world on a small yacht, The Cimba (see The Saga of Cimba, by Dick Maury, on Amazon.com). He left that vessel in Pago Pago to become an officer on a storm-damaged, four-masted schooner, which would have sunk in an insurance scam had it not been for his presence aboard.
Stede Barber is a teacher, mentor, and certified Soul Art Guide, offering private sessions, workshops, and retreats using collage, painting, writing and movement to cultivate living a healthy, fulfilling, thriving life.
“Art has been a constant companion and good friend. Handling grief; opening my heart and spirit; expressing and exploring what is beyond words; building trust; learning self-care and self-love; learning to ask, listen, and receive answers; practicing letting go and allowing; attuning to spirit; personal transformation; personal fulfillment. And the gift of seeing others light up when something in my work speaks to them and sparks their spirit. Though art has many forms and purposes, for me, art is an experience and expression of the essence of life. Wonderful experiences are meant to be shared. While we engage in the joy and freedom of creativity, transformation quietly unfolds in seemingly magical ways.” www.stedebarber.com
Francine will trace her awakening path from the time she was a teenager and started hearing a loud voice at various stages in her life telling her what was going to happen in the future, how to approach life and to take up a new profession when she was searching for something new in her life. Francine says: “Guidance comes in many forms and I’ve found that surrendering to my inner and sometimes loud voice has gotten me to the present time and why living in the moment of the Now works for me.”
Awakened back in 1971 while working for the Red Cross in South Korea for a year, Francine’s journey has gone from there: Reiki healer, Transformational Breath facilitator, ordained priest in the Order of Melchizedek, Past Life Regression healer, Vortex healer of Mother Earth, and crystal/rock communicator. As she puts it: “I come from a “Magenta planet” somewhere in the Universe and am a Cherubim angel hanging on earth in esoteric terms.”
