Dale Allen HoffmanThe World Will Never Be the Same

Presented by Rev. Dale Allen Hoffman

We can view 2020 as a great gift. Rather than viewing our human lives amidst the apparent challenges of our modern experience, perhaps we first seek to consciously understand the nature of reality and "the world." When we choose to see through the Eternal nature of our True Being, we find ourselves becoming, in the words of Yogananda, "the ever-joyous witness of a stupendous cosmic drama". Rich with insight from the original ancient Aramaic teachings of Yeshua [Jesus] and indigenous cultures across the Earth, Dale offers a profound realization of the true meaning of "the end of the world".

Speaker Bio

Dale Allen Hoffman is an ancient Aramaic wisdom keeper and mystic sharing an intimate, experiential understanding long - misunderstood ancient secrets and healing modalities. Dale is the only soul on earth sharing a living, breathing vision of the original Aramaic Yeshua (Jesus) and Mary Magdalene energetic alchemy wisdom from the Biblical, Gnostic and Mystery School philosophies as one pure revelation. He has published numerous audio and video programs and is author of the book Echoes of an Ancient Dream: Aramaic Toning on the Path of Light.

Julie ConsidineHow We Become Co-creators of a New Expanded Consciousness

Presented by Rev. Julie Considine

Can you imagine God, the Holy Spirit, or even any of our ancestors saying, when will this journey to wholeness, creation or experience on this earth be over, done, perfect or finished?  Have you heard God say “I’m tired. I’m ready to retire, and maybe even play some golf, tennis or spend the afternoon kayaking or swimming in the rivers?”  We’ve all been working on this for thousands, millions or even billions of years and have any of us perfected this wild, crazy ride yet? I can hear God say, “Relax, chill, enjoy the ride, take a book and go out into the woods and spend some time enjoying yourself, talk to the trees and enjoy the wondrous gifts I have given you everywhere you look…” Let yourself off the hook.  Start expanding and dream and imagine what’s next.  See into the horizon and find new opportunities just around the corner, new events to become passionate about and meet new people to share your vision and hopes for this new world we are all walking into.  Today, this very moment we can become conscious co-creators of a new world - a world that is flowing from a new and expanded state of consciousness.  One that has never before been experienced on such a global scale. 

Speaker Bio

Rev. Julie Considine has been an ADL  minister since 2017.  Julie had a thriving psychotherapy practice in South Florida and since retiring to Hendersonville, NC she still maintains a virtual practice.  Her passion is working with individuals and families to create powerful and meaningful relationships.  Julie has also facilitated women's support groups for 30 years. In her free time, Julie loves hiking, nature, and spending time with her children and grandchildren.

Brother Tony GogueEnlightenment Everyday: Using Divine Consciousness to Reinterpret Everyday Secular Media 

Presented by Rev. K. Anthony Gogue

Speaker Bio

Jane WollockHearing the Voices of the Natural World

Presented by Rev. Jane Wollack

The world is alive, awake, aware and always engaging with us. In our modern age, we have for the most part, long forgotten that very old connection, forgotten the importance of that listening. Come and step into that world of deep awareness and communication with the plants around us.

Diane BakerGroup Hypnosis: I am Enough 

Presented by Rev. Diane Baker

Hypnosis is a natural relaxing of the conscious mind to allow the subconscious mind to become more suggestible and receptive to accept new, positive beliefs to replace negative programming from early in life. Diane will share some intriguing insights into how the mind works, and how our habits of action are run by habits of thought. As children we forget that "We Are Enough" and she will hold a group hypnosis session in which our beliefs around "I Am Enough" can be healed ridding us of feelings of unworthiness, self-sabotage, self-judgment, lack of self-care, never finishing things, blocked creativity, persistent poverty, repetitive failure, depression, etc. By upgrading this core belief through hypnosis, we as ministers heal ourselves and have more to offer others in our ministries.

Speaker Bio

Rev. Rev. Diane Baker has practiced many forms of healing over the past four decades as a speaker and teacher, including Reiki, spiritual counseling, Power of Eight Intention work, BodyTalk, Psych-K, archetypal astrology, meditation, medical massage therapy and hypnotherapy.  She was ordained as an ADL minister in 2019 and now offers RTT Hypnotherapy (Rapid Transformational Therapy) to groups and individuals in the Hendersonville, NC area and elsewhere via Zoom.  Her ministry is focused on helping her clients reframe early learning experiences, let go of painful or unproductive thoughts and behaviors, and collaborate with their subconscious mind for immediate and permanent change.
