Nov 8   Reincarnation and Atavism
David Zimmerman

With the influence of the Aquarian Age firmly upon us, a growing number of people seek answers to the apparent injustices in life; disease; inequality; answers to which the Church is no longer capable of providing.  Instead, many have turned to Reincarnation and it’s sister doctrine Karma for it is only here that these answers may be found. David presents us with the facts behind reincarnation, and shows us that, far from being a belief held only in the East, reincarnation also has its roots firmly planted in the West where it can be traced throughout our rich and cultured society in the lives of its  greatest men and women - the poets, philosophers, and inventors. Atavism will also be discussed as it represents an added influence through past lives that shape future incarnation. David is an esoteric astrologer and board member of the Theosophical Society in Detroit.

Nov 15    Reincarnation: Ancient Wisdom, Modern Implications 
Presentation by Barbara Hebert

Reincarnation has been a topic of great interest to many individuals over the years. It has moved from a forbidden topic to a subject that is casually discussed in daily conversation. More than this, however, the ancient teaching of reincarnation provides us with direction for living our daily lives and offers insight into the often confusing and tumultuous world around us.

Nov 22 “Reversing the Flow: A Conscious Choice" & Sound Meditation
Presentation by Tim Boyd & Sound Meditation by Sandy Naimou

Sandy Naimou will facilitate the evening with a recorded presentation by Tim Boyd, a group sharing, and a breath and sound meditation.  In his presentation, Tim Boyd discusses redirecting "the flow" that "pushes us into unawareness." When we choose to practice awareness, we can make changes that cultivate inner qualities we need most; "peacefulness, clarity, and wisdom," and thus, "reverse the flow."  To demonstrate the power of paying attention, we will practice with a sound & gong meditation. Sandy Naimou is currently President of the TSD, teaches and studies Yoga full-time, and has a degree in psychology and a Master’s degree in Women’s Studies. She also offers full sound immersions, Yoga Nidra, and drum circles.
