1) Clearing Houses, Buildings and Ourselves of Spirits and the Dearly Departed
On Sunday, Nov. 17, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., participate in and learn to conduct a soul release ceremony to clear spirits. If time and facilities allow, we’ll travel to an area in need of cleansing and clear it. If not, then we’ll conduct the ceremony onsite at the workshop. You’ve seen all the television programs about the ghost hunters. Join us and learn the truth, from those on the other side as to why spirits stay, where they go and what it takes to send them into the light. Gregory has over 20 years experience clearing spirits from the Earth plane raising the Earth’s frequency. He has confronted demons, ghosts and spirits throughout the world and will share a few of his experiences if you ask. This will not only be a fascinating day of information, but will help you determine if you want to become involved in this kind of work. Clearing cemeteries, battlefields, buildings, burial areas and old houses can be very gratifying spiritual work. We are here not only to serve the living, but to serve the other realms as well. The Wisdom Tree is located at The Shops at Shadowline at 240 Shadowline Drive in Boone. Personal investment is $70.
2) Judaism, Christianity, Islam – A Panel Discussion on the Interconnection of Three Abrahamic Faiths
This panel will take place Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 5 p.m. at Belk Library and Information Commons Room 114. Admission to this event is free and open to the public. Have you wanted to know more about the differences and commonalities among Christianity, Judaism and Islam? Community members are invited to attend a panel discussion by three Appalachian State faculty members of the book, The Children of Abraham: Judaism, Christianity, Islam by F.E. Peters. The three panelists, Dr. Alan Hauser (Department of Philosophy and Religion), Dr. Maria Lichtmann (Department of Philosophy and Religion) and Dr. Rahman Tashakkori (Department of Computer Science) will use this classic comparative study to discuss the interconnections between these three major faiths.
3) Film Screening and Discussion of “The Other Son”
This event will take place on Thursday, Nov. 14, at 5 p.m. in the Greenbriar Theatre at ASU Student Union. Admission to this event is free and open to the public. The Other Son is a compelling, moving and humane film about the families of two young men- one Israeli, the other Palestinian- who discover that their sons were accidentally switched at birth. This revelation turns their lives upside down, forcing them to reassess their respective identities, values and beliefs. This is a life affirming story about finding compassion for the “other.” The film won Best Director Award and the Tokyo Grand Prix at the Tokyo International Film Festival in 2012. Discussion after the film will be led by Palestinian-American Dr. Jawad Bargothi who is professor Emeritus from the ASU Department of Government and Justice Studies.
