Description of talks:
"Awakening the Music of Your Inner Temple." - Matthew von Behrens
"Everyone has experienced how singing or listening to a certain tune can uplift your spirit. What if we want to uplift the highest Spirit of all within and around us? What is the music best suited to do that, for you as an individual? You can find out using practices Edgar Cayce recommended, which we will do and will help to awaken the music of your own "inner temple."
Matthew is a harp playing chaplain at Porter Hospital in Middlebury, Vermont (USA) as well as an ordained Christian minister, playing at the bedsides of both those souls entering the earth and taking their first breaths, and those souls leaving the earth and taking their final breaths.

In 2015 she formalized her psychic training at the SSF-IIIHS (Spiritual Science Fellowship - International Institute Of Integral Human Sources) center in Montreal, where she began her process of exposure and integration with her life mission formally. Since then, she has been giving lectures, trainings and individual, group, face-to-face and distance sessions. Her passion is to encourage the expansion of consciousness through coherence and her daily practice following her philosophy: Nurturing the individual for the well-being of the collective.
Wellness Through Sound - Andrea Courey
‘Music as a bridge’ appropriately describes how Sound Meditation takes us into our invisible
world to connect with our consciousness. We are vibrational beings and our cells respond to
high vibration. When we experience a choice bit of vibration with just the right facilitation, we
build our own bridge to our inner world. Using the breath, we quiet the mind, follow the sound
and allow a myriad of wonderful sensations and visualizations to arise.
Sound meditation is a healing experience that incorporates crystal bowls, rattles, chimes and
Tibetan bowls with recorded high vibrational music and live guidance to bring you an elevated
vibratory experience. By raising your personal vibration, you can shift out of lower vibrational
states like anxiety and worry to acceptance, equanimity and peace. Benefits include reduced
muscle tension and anxiety, increased intuition, improved mental clarity and wellbeing.
Andrea began meditating in 1992 after living a profound near death experience. Initially
meditating in silence, her world changed when the first crystal bowl was introduced around
2000. She continued to practice Sound Meditation through her years as an award winning
entrepreneur, a McGill University lecturer and a mentor for budding entrepreneurs.
Finally retiring in 2015, Andrea began dedicating herself full time to facilitating Sound
Meditations at yoga and wellness centres, hospitals, universities and since 2020, online via
Zoom. Participants report pain reduction, better sleep, after death communication with loved
ones, reduction of anxiety and greater peace. An author, Andrea has written 2 books and a play
on themes of life and life after life.
Edgar Cayce on Sound - Karen Stemmler
The medicine of the future will be music and sound.’ Edgar Cayce
This interactive presentation will have us look at our bodies and sound, and how we can support our energy through music and frequency. It will highlight current research, along with Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) quotes.
With the advent of the cymascope (which is a tool to make sound visible), amidst an explosion of information, methods and techniques applying sound in the field of health care; it is so delightful to bask in the words of Edgar Cayce from so many years ago, and see them being revealed in and through us, and experience the many exciting aha’s and realizations, potentials, & vibrations of the love that we are!
Session one - We will look at the properties of sound and Edgar Cayce quotes assisting us in attuning to the Divine.
Session two - We will explore recent scientific advancements in sound and tips in incorporating them in everyday life.
Karen Stemmler grew up in an Edgar Cayce household and is a lifelong participant with the material.
As a teacher of music for many years, Karen has been very interested in the many readings
pertaining to sound and the many ways frequencies heal and strengthen our energy field.
