Presenter: Georgia Remond

Money and our reaction to it can be highly emotionally charged. Money is an energy that can be observed by considering how we view wealth: as abundance or lack and poverty consciousness. Money, as a commodity, allows us to make a statement by demonstrating what we value as we consciously choose what we purchase, what we support, and how we donate or tithe.

Presenter: Georgia Remond

When you set an intention, you declare to yourself and the universe your commitment to your goals and dreams. When you live intentionally, you tend to make decisions and choices that are in alignment with what you truly value rather than by default or from reactivity. The Science of Intention Setting offers specific steps to clarify and empower your intentions and succeed in living your true purpose in life.

”Spooky action at a distance” was the way Einstein referred to some of the strange results in quantum mechanics. In this lecture, we will explain - without mathematics - the odd behavior of so-called entangled particles. The most recent research enables us to use these particles to develop a powerful quantum computer and to guarantee methods for the unbreakable encryption of data. We will show the amazing experiments done recently to verify their existence.

Prehistoric history is now studied in terms of what’s known as Big History. We look not only at what happened but why and how, and then follow the trail wherever it leads. This approach links science, archaeology, geology, mythology, nature, and many other fields and disciplines. Each lecture is complete; it is not necessary to attend both parts.

Questions, comments, and discussions are encouraged.

Host: Sandra Frisby

This is a free outing but you must register ahead of time. Each spring we hold this event in order to get together and exchange cuttings (or whole perennials) of our favourite non-invasive plants and share garden stories over breakfast. Please consider bringing a breakfast item to share. Your hostess will provide coffee and a frittata.

Please call Sandra Frisby at 514-748-0458 or email me at sandrafrisby@gmail.com to get driving instructions to my home.
