Durham IANDS Speaker: Lesley Lupo, Near-Death Experiencer by Horses

Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (ERUUF)

Tickets will be sold for this event. Ticket link will be displayed about one month ahead. Lesley Lupo was declared dead when horses crushed her body against a horse trough. Watching from a few feet away, she then ascended and was taught by Light Beings. Today she counsels others on their inner journeys. As a small child, she was aware of the gift she had of seeing events before they happened and the guides that are with us every day. She also learned that no one else around saw these things, so it scared her and she shut it down. Drawn to spiritual teachings in high school, she'd read the Bhagavad Gita and Upanishads along with Sybil Leek. At 18 years old, two different women approached her within two weeks of each other with the same question, a question that helped her along her path. They both asked, "Why do you have your Light turned off?" Both women told her that she had a gift that was slumbering, a gift of a great White Light and offered to teach her how to access it. She now utilizes this gift to help people find their own inner guidance and point people to a pathway of higher consciousness. She gives her clients a new perspective of themselves, of the world, and how we relate to each other in order to bring them back to the light within. Lesley's book is titled "Every Breath is Precious" since those were the very last words her guides said to her as she began her return from her near-death experience. Lesley has a BA in Psychology and a BFA in Studio Art in college, which she said has made for an interesting balance. She's studied counseling, focusing on Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming and continued her education in such diverse subjects as Reiki Master level Energy Work, anger and grief counseling, and Biosomatics. She currently works at Canyon Ranch Health Resort Metaphysical Department in Tucson, Arizona for the last eighteen years. See Leslie's website: LightThePath.com Lesley is a licensed NLP therapist with more than 25 years of experience as a psychic and Tarot card reader. She's worked with thousands of clients from royalty to celebrities at Canyon Ranch in Tucson, Arizona and have conducted numerous workshops and seminars in areas as diverse as relationships, energy work, and opening up our inner channels. Located at the Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (ERUUF) at 7 pm.
