Offering Peace, Healing and Transformation

Friday, Nov. 5, 2021 - 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM ET

don Jose Ruiz
Keynote Speaker - don Jose Ruiz
don Jose Ruiz is the international bestselling author of The Fifth Agreement. As a Toltec Master of Transformation and Modern day Shaman, he has dedicated his life to sharing the wisdom of the ancient Toltec through his books, lectures, and journeys to sacred sites around the world. He will be discussing The Medicine Bag: Shamanic Rituals and Ceremonies for Personal Transformation.

Unlike some forms of shamanism, the Toltec tradition places a special emphasis on unconditional love and personal healing as the means by which we create transformation in ourselves and the world. In fact, the truth is that, it's only when we change ourselves that we change the world.

Guest Speaker - Ani Williams
Ani Williams is world-renowned for more than two-dozen albums of original music based on ancient spiritual traditions. Ani will be talking about the wisdom, meaning and usefulness of sound alchemy. She has done seminal work in the study of sound, the relationship between musical tones, the human voice and healing. Ani is a harpist, singer, songwriter, author, sound therapist & pilgrimage guide.

Rev. Rhonda Schienle was privileged to have been on a Pilgrimage in the South of France and Spain with Ani Williams, called “Song of the Grail”. The Pilgrimage took us to sacred sites, where Ani played the harp and sang many songs that were poignant to each location.
