Description of talks:

Medium Messages with Vanessa Bertran

Vanessa Bertran, Psychic Medium and Channeler, is descended from a maternal lineage of 3 generations of active spiritual spokeswomen with diverse gifts, light channelers and energy healers. She kept her spiritual and psychic development activities in the privacy of her innermost circle and under the tutelage of close guides for over 30 years. 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.

Edgar Cayce on Opening the Centres Through Meditation

Cayce implied that the Book of Revelation is a an account of the apostle John's kundalini awakening when he meditated. This lecture intends to explain elements of the Book and show that the path, through meditation, is the path that all must take.

Ken Allego took his massage training at NHC in 1999. In 2005, he trained with Grandmaster Fu of the Emei Qigong style in energy healing, meditation and Qigong exercises. In 2015, he graduated from the Canadian College of Osteopathy in Toronto, and currently works as an osteopath in Montreal.

Chakra Balancing Using Sound Vibrations

Edgar Cayce wrote of the body as our temple. Consistent with this view are the 7 main energetic chakras of the body which are considered to be the 7 main spiritual centers.

In this workshop, we'll be using Sound to connect to the subtle energetic physical and spiritual flow of each center. With our awareness aided by high vibration, we'll visualize rejuvenation, connection and balance as per Cayce's work.

Increased psychic ability and a well functioning endocrine system are the goals.

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 Silence

There are 78 readings where Edgar Cayce referred to ‘silence’.

In this session we will look at some of these readings along with practical applications with awareness games. We will explore our own direct experience with the ground of our being, our silence, which has a direct effect on the chakras.

“The entity, in the present, is capable of entering into the silence” Reading 275

Karen is a retired primary school teacher.  As a life long student of Spirit, metaphysics, sound, healing methodologies and nature studies she has consistently been attracted to the Edgar Cayce readings and the wisdom held within.  The essence of Edgar Cayce’s life has been, and continues to be an inspiration.  Karen enjoys travel, nature, family, friends, energy retreats and teaching and sharing in sessions where God’s presence is vitally alive.

Edgar Cayce on the Chakras

Edgar Cayce was born in 1877, yet spoke of esoteric philosophy thousands  of years old.  Cayce spoke of the finer body and the energies  in the endocrine system.  Learn what the chakra system and Cayce's  readings have to say about our esoteric anatomy.

Jon Shatat is from Ottawa Canada and has been studying the Edgar Cayce readings for more than 25 years. He is a graduate of the Cayce Reilly School of Massage, a Cayce-trained Life Coach and conducts past life regressions. For the last 10 years, he has traveled extensively across the US interviewing reading recipients and their families. 

You are an Energy Reader

Claire Marie is originally from England, raised in Canada and currently resides in Quebec. Claire has developed a passion for working with spirit. Helping people align with their truest and highest purpose.  She vibrates at a level that captivates audiences and opens minds to the wonders of the Universe.  She is a warm soul who makes anyone feel safe and welcomed when talking with her. Be it in a crowd or during one-on-one private sessions.

Claire has always been drawn to spirituality. After almost 50 years, Claire continues to embrace her title of an odd duck.  Through her connection to spirit, she learned to embrace her differences as she grew into adulthood. This led Claire down a path of self-discovery, gaining knowledge in psychology and acquiring a master’s degree in Metaphysics.
