Top Ten Things To Do August 6th to 13th 2017
- August 6th, Karen and Kelly Sarlo are a mother-daughter team that use their gifts to heal and to bridge communication between humans and the spirit world. They work with focus, efficiency and the utmost integrity to deliver the Universe’s messages to you. They honour the spirit world by being a vessel of unbinding truth. Join us for an interactive two-hour event. Tickets are $50.00 a person. Karen and Kelly will use their intuitive gifts connecting with spirit (pets included) to address questions you feel have gone unanswered. While they cannot guarantee that each person in attendance will personally receive information from a loved one who has passed, in this setting we all have the opportunity to hear messages coming from the spirit world, and learn from one another, which can be a very healing process for everyone. Let Karen and Kelly bring you to another space and time. Let them show you how your loved ones are still very much part of your everyday life. We guarantee you will be touched by the messages you hear, the connections you make, and the peace you find. This event is presented with love and integrity from our souls and your deceased loved ones’ to yours. This is an adult event. Children under 16 will not be admitted.
