Michael Brill11:00 – 12:00 Noon

Solutions to Your Behavior Patterns-the Catalysts of your Health Issues

with Michael Brill

All of us suffer to some extent from cosmic abandonment issues. Intially, while in the celestial realm, our soul and ego consciously select the letters of our name, the numbers for our birthday, our birth and/or adoptive families, and the challenges we will face along with their solutions. The density of the energy of the earth plane is more intense causing disharmony between the ego and the soul resulting in a cosmic abandonment issue and two universal behavior patterns: doing to be loved or doing to maintain control. In this presentation, I will demonstrate the relationship and solutions between behavior and illness, disease, and injuries.

Michael Brill has a M.Ed. and has been a Numerologist since 1985. He has over 40 years of combined experiences as an author, educator, and trainer in public and private schools, college, business, and government, including ten years in the aerospace industry together with two years of NASA. He describes himself as a number disguised as a human being. He has authored four books, appeared on FOX and public television, and over 700 radio programs.

Embracing Your Soul's Artistry
with Rebecca Wildbear

Here, we'll discuss the practices involved in tracking soul, cultivating artistry, and hearing the wisdom of the inner Muse. We'll also engage in a somatic listening, gentle Wild Yoga, and/or deep imagination practice.
