Let's learn the mechanisms of fear

Let’s take this evening to explore...

How to release the past? Are there some old fears, unwanted emotions and memories that still cling to you? Would you like to let go?

What would it be like if you were gentler with yourself?
If you begin to slow down the internal critic, stop yelling at yourself so much. and showed some love.

What would it like to be kind to yourself, to give yourself forgiveness and compassion?

Sounds great, right! But in the real world, everyday somebody pisses you off, pushes your buttons. Isn’t it time you took control?

Would you like to give yourself the gift of releasing fear? To have...

  • Freedom from the past
  • Freedom from emotions
  • Freedom to move forward to the brilliant future that awaits you and that you deserve

Speaker 02 - Catherine Outeiral - Meet "the Angelic Team" and Get a Reading

Come meet Catherine and "the Angelic Team. Catherine will also do some individual reading and give a channeled group message of hope that evening. Learn what your angels might have to say about love, career, finances, romance and so much more.

Catherine Outeiral, Intuitive Healer has been on a spiritual path since 1996, almost 20 years. She is an empathic and clairvoyant healer who has combined many modalities into her work—including Traditional Reiki, Shamanism, Sound Healing, and Aromatherapy. She has been a student of the Edgar Cayce Readings since 1996, and credits the readings for bringing her back to life after being struck with severe and debilitating agoraphobia and anxiety in 2005.

Her journey with the Angelic Realms began with Archangel Michael in 2009, while she was a caretaker for her mother Margaret Joan (named for Archangel Michael and Saint Joan of Arc). Catherine prayed to Archangel Michael for a miracle cure for her mother who had been put on a respirator in January of 2009. Although she did not give her mother the miracle cure that she wished for, she was able to share the experience of the angels. Her mother was visited by Archangel Michael on several occasions. After Catherine began to work with Archangel Michael—who she calls Big Mike—she was told that other angels wanted to work with her as well. At present, she works with 15 archangels, seven personal angels, and the eight healing angels of the energy field—she calls this group: “The Angelic Team.” In addition to the Angelic Team, others have experienced the presence of Saint Padre Pio, and her Native American Spirit Guide Tracker, who has also assisted during healing private healing sessions.

She has more than ten years experience as an intuitive healer and became very public with this work in 2009 under the guidance of the Angelic Team. She currently gives workshops, healing circles and private sessions in New York City and also facilitates the Edgar Cayce Economic Healing Group each Sunday at the ARE of NYC.

Speaker 03 - Julio Cortes - Big Rocks - Putting First Things First

How many of you are busy people? I know I am. Doing what needs to be done is often a chore and there is often little time left for you. I am sure we can all relate to this because we are all busy people. That being said, is that all there is? Do we just have to settle for a caricature of a life that is hard and then we die? I don't think so.

In this session, there will be a little lecture to get some key concepts, and then we spend the majority of the time having a discussion on what is important to us and look at what gets in our way. In the course of this discussion, we will get insights into what might be possible for us and what we can do to make it happen. Participates will leave clearer, inspired and ready to move onto their next step to a life they want to live.

You will learn about

  • how we tend to sabotage ourselves
  • what two things need to change for any change to happen
  • what helps us change
  • ideas about what to do differently
  • sources of help/support and making the change real

We look forward to having you join us.
