Speaker on New Normal: Catherine Kane

Posted on

cathy auraOn November 4th, Catherine Kane will be appearing from 8-9 pm on the New Normal with Tchipakkan on

We’re talking about psychic empaths, those of us who are extra tuned in to the feelings and emotional vibes of others. It’s a lovely gift but, while you’re born with the gift, you’re not born with the skills you need to manage it. Without those skills, psychic empathy can be an overwhelming experience.

We’ll be talking about those skills- about how to control how much psychic energy you take in, how to ground out energy you don’t want and what to do with your gift, amongst other things. We’ll also talk about the people who care about empaths and how they can support their psychic.

Want to catch this interview, call in with your own questions or be part of the live chat happening during every show?

The Mind/Body Connection is Real:

How Your Gut Affects Your Mental and Emotional Health

Our mental and emotional health is dependent on our ability to be nourished by what we eat. If our digestive system is not working right, then the rest of the body, which includes the brain, doesn’t work right either. ADD/ADHD, depression, schizophrenia, anxiety, and autism spectrum are all closely related to gut health. Find out what causes gut dysbiosis and what to do about it.

Panel Spotlight: Shamanism panel

Posted on Updated on

Shamanism Going Forward PanelБэликто
What parts of the old skills and styles will be especially useful for the next 50 or 100 years? We might instantly think of the psychic and herbal healing lore which could certainly be a fascinating side of the discussion. But there’s also a face of the old shamanic ways that most Pagan folk seldom think about but most artists remember well: the shamanic performance style.

Picture being in someone’s living room, a warm friendly place, where some really brilliant, experienced people are having an animated discussion about topics on healing, divination, magic, folklore and spirituality. You can ask questions or just listen. That’s what our panels are like, not experts sitting behind a table.
Please come to the atrium to enjoy or join the conversation!
