Mystical connections in the physical world and physical connections to the mystical world.
Guest speaker: Sharon Jinkerson-Brass
Sharon says: “The life I have lived has countless times revealed a mystical side of life that has become as real to me as sunlight. One would think this was a simple, magical experience but it was very hard for me to deeply embrace these experiences as real. For many years my colonized mind rejected the obvious conclusions I was experiencing because I believed in tangible proof. After many decades my reality and my beliefs have expanded to embrace a deep reverence for the sacred spiritual world that are with all of us throughout our lives. I believe there are “ways of being” that can help us to see the unseen world or validate what we already know.” In her reflection Sharon will share a reading and a story about this aspect of her journey.
