Keynote Speaker:

  • MICHELLE HANSON

Michelle Hanson is a wonderful teacher and a bright soul! She has reached a worldwide audience with her popular seashell divination classes. She is also an international author and we are honored to have her in our event! I studied with her for in 2012 and can truly say she is a wonderful teacher!

Following a lifetime of study with her seashell partners, Michelle has learned to translate the language of the shells. The enlightenment she has received has assisted others in healing their wounds–both physically and energetically–and fulfilling their own missions. Stop by to meet her, have a session or attend one of her seminars at the fair! To learn more about Michelle and what she has to offer visit her website: OceanOracle.com

Michelle Hanson has opened up a whole new world of crystal exploration courtesy of her lifelong work with her seashell partners. Constructed by mollusks from protein secretions embedded with Calcite and Aragonite, seashells are crystal bridges uniting the animal and mineral kingdoms. Attuning to seashells links the left and right hemispheres of the brain, and their high vibrational energy facilitates communication with other realms. Working with seashells provides the opportunity to restore balance to all aspects of our lives enabling us to reshape the future. They connect us to our divine essence, our etheric DNA, offering a blueprint to edit and restructure our physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies toward increased perfection and ascension. As energy tools connecting with our chakras, they mirror our spiritual evolution, guiding us to heal and transform ourselves and ultimately, our planet. Throughout history, seashells have been valued esthetically. Now is the time to appreciate them as valuable members of the crystal family, and powerful collaborators eager to assist us in navigating through life. I highly recommend exploring the seashell kingdom through Michelle’s books and classes

~ Robert Simmons, author of Stones of the New Consciousness

Michelle Hanson’s Seminars (these are seminars and will last longer than the other lectures total time 1 hour of her seminars -Sat & Sun)

SATURDAY:

Seashell Readings: Empowering tools for reshaping your future

Everyone remembers spending a day at the beach as a child collecting seashells, but what if those seashells were more than just pretty objects? What if those shells could actually tell you something about your hidden thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes? Simply put, seashells function as tools that enable us to speak with our subconscious, allowing the inner self to communicate the information it considers most valuable for our growth. In this seminar, Michelle leads you on an ocean voyage of discovery decoding the language of the seashells. You will witness mollusks, the animals who create and inhabit the shells, in their natural habitats. Along the way, you will meet vampires and heroes, and encounter demonstrations of compassion and intelligence. Your ocean journey will also reveal seashell master teachings on a variety of subjects. By listening to the shells with the guidance of Ocean Oracle, you can tap into your own innate wisdom and joy.

SUNDAY:

Ocean Crystals: How Seashells Support Energy Work

Seashells are crystals from the animal kingdom and water element. They contain all the benefits for mind, body, and spirit that are associated with crystals from the mineral kingdom and earth element. In this seminar, Michelle will share the highlights of a 5-year journey with her seashell guides revealing how they partner in chakra work. If you have any Abalone shells at home, you are invited to take them with you to the seminar. You may be surprised at the magic they hold.

  • ALLISON HARRIS

Allison is an amazing animal communicator. She grew up with the ease of animal communication and people would seek her for insight into their pets and livestock. After an equestrian career and 20 years as a horseshoer, she took formal training for animal communication with international teacher Marta Williams. Allison will be at the Spirit Fest!!! She approaches each session from a place of respect and caring with the goal of bringing about a greater understanding between her clients and their animal companions. Animal communication is the telepathic transfer of information from an animal to a receiver that can influence behavior and increase mutual understanding. With this skill she has the ability to help your pets communicate what a high quality of life means to them. It can create dialog around dangerous or undesired behaviors, bringing a resolution that works for all. Animal psychic work also enables us to communicate with our beloved deceased animal companions.

From Melonie

“I recognize the importance of genuine self care through my own experiences. It’s something that has transformed my life in multiple ways. One of those ways were womb health and stable environment so that I not only feel good physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. This is why Yoni Steaming has become such a prevalent part of my self care routine. It not only release and cleanse things during my moon time, but the intangible aspects of life are healed as well! It’s amazing what our wombs can do! The joy of sharing this information with women inspired me so much that it has transpired into an opportunity to provide them with the key to their Divine Femininity as well! Yoni steaming is nothing new and has returned to help guide us along the way of the world today! I’m just grateful to be in assistance for sisters who love themselves enough to take care.”

  • LUNAR ALCHEMY

Lunar Alchemy is an innovative, advanced stress reduction technique.

PRESENTATION:

When the Lunar Alchemy system is applied to the subtle energy field of any person, place, or thing, it transforms that person, place or thing into a systemic alchemist. A systemic alchemist automatically transmutes all subtle energies in the energy field from non-beneficial to beneficial, and self-selects the beneficial subtle energies over the non-beneficial ones. After Lunar Alchemy is applied to your smart phone or other electronic device, that device will no longer weaken anyone’s energy field.

It would specifically be for people with Smart Phones. If they want they can bring tablets instead, that is okay, or they can bring both. The system is best demonstrated with smart phones that are not previously corrected with various stickers. With intention, I would shift the subtle energy system of their smart phone (or tablet), and demonstrate how to use the newly trained smart phone to shift the subtle energy qualities around other electronic devices. The system retrains the device to automatically transmute non-beneficial subtle energy qualities to beneficial ones. The shift is permanent. I would demonstrate the energy shift with before/after muscle response testing.

** Please bring your smart phones or tablets, pencil & paper for this presentation. **

During this presentation, learn about a technique that shifts the subtle energy system of a smart phone (or tablet). This demonstration will show this technique shift the subtle energy quality of a smart or tablet. and retrains it to automatically transmute non-beneficial subtle energies into beneficial ones. Muscle testing before and after will be utilized to demonstrate the shift.
