Talk and signing: “What my Death Taught Me: a True Story of Personal Resurrection into the Light
With Dan Shafer: Creator of “Leading Edge Spiritual Thought”
In the fall of 2008, Dan Shafer had a massive coronary that led to a triple bypass. During the lead-up to the surgery and in its immediate aftermath, he “died” three different times. He has done a great deal of research over the years in what is often called “near death experiences,” but prefers to use the term “resurrection experience.” He is presently at work on a new book, “What My Death Taught Me: Six Universal Truths Worth Sharing.”
Mr. Shafer is the founder of the One Mind Fellowship, a teaching foundation based in Monterey. He is also a popular Spiritual Teacher in Residence at Unity of Monterey Bay. Tonight Dan will talk about his profound life-changing “resurrection” experience, as well as the nature of light: as a spiritual symbol, as a physical energy flow, and as a healing agent in our lives. Dan is the creator of “Leading Edge Spiritual Thought,” a 12 lecture series on CD, available at Luminata. Don’t miss this intriguing, informative event. There is no charge.
Color and Aromatherapy Spa Event at Luminata
With Green Valley Spa—Aromatherapy Consultants
Friday, April 16th, 7:30 pm
Aromatherapy is a new healing modality that can empower one to live a more energetic, fulfilling and healthy life. The knowledge of essential oils combined with the science and art of color is even more powerful and potentially life-changing. Color Aromatherapy is a cutting edge way to identify and eliminate disengaged emotions or blocks that may cause stress, anxiety or illness. Green Valley Labs and Spa creates some of the finest and most effective aromatherapy products on the market, and they are known for their use of fresh herbs and pure minerals, harvested from the beautiful desert regions of Utah.
Tonight they will be presenting the art of color aromatherapy, including guidance in creating your personal aromatherapy color fragrance. Learn how to blend your own personal essential oil remedy to enhance and influence your own daily emotional needs and desires. At this event Luminata is offering a 10% discount on all Green Valley Spa products.

Tuesday, April 27th, 7:30 pm
Focusing attention on our higher energy centers, accompanied by simple guided imagery offers a safe approach to bringing higher influences into our daily lives. According to ancient traditions the time of the full moon is especially auspicious for meditation. This gathering is an opportunity to attune to one’s deeper self and radiate higher energies into the world for peace and healing. We will use a synthesis of several classical meditation styles in this guided journey. The evening will last about 45 minutes to an hour. There is no charge to participate.

Talk and Book Signing
with William Bramley, author of “Jesus Goes to Hollywood: the Alternative Theories about Christ”
Join best-selling author William Bramley as he surveys the major alternative theories about Christ and provides you with primary evidence in support of each theory, along with some of the arguments against them. What were Jesus’ connections to the mystery religions of the ancient world? Where was he during the “lost 18 years,” of which there is no scriptural reference? Did he visit India and Tibet—perhaps even Egypt—during this time? Who or what were the angels said to be in contact with Christ? “Jesus Goes to Hollywood” fills in the gaps with a fascinating summary of the most popular and enduring alternative views about Christ. There is no charge for the event.
