Angels are assigned to us before birth and are with us 24/7. They can help make our life so much easier, if we only let them. We will discuss the role angels have in our lives; what they can and cannot do for us; we will “feel” their energy and call upon their assistance in a healing exercise. Participate in a powerful Manifestation Meditation to request something you really want.

It summarizes the answers to the “big questions of life” and explores the “secret” of enlightenment, and why, ultimately, there is nothing to fear.
“Enlightenment” is an intriguing and practical understanding of our true nature and the worlds we live in. It combines meta-physics and quantum mechanics with a fundamental missing ingredient — the psychology of spirituality. The talk will also explore the role of emotions, and the practical psychology behind making popular spiritual techniques work. “Enlightenment” is a field guide to emotional well-being and spiritual enlightenment.
Author info David Bognar is a researcher/writer who researched, wrote and produced the award winning documentary Cancer: Increasing Your Odds for Survival hosted by Walter Cronkite where he first presented leading edge research on mind/body medicine and spirituality. Enlightenment reports on the culmination of his life long quest and 40 years of research into the big questions of life, death and the nature of reality.
