Conversations with Weigel: Linda Howe

Conversations With Weigel:  A Series Exploring Spiritual Enlightenment

Author Linda Howe
The universe is alive—and it has a memory just like you. Known as the Akashic Records, this energetic archive of soul information stands ready to lovingly guide you. After a lifelong search for truth, master teacher and healer Linda Howe has developed a method for accessing this reservoir of information: the Pathway Prayer Process. By lifting you to a divine level of consciousness, this sacred prayer opens the doors of the Records, where your “soul blueprint”—everything you need to know about your soul's destiny—awaits you. 
Linda Howe is the founder and director of The Center for Akashic Studies, an organization dedicated to promoting the study of Akashic Records and other applicable spiritual wisdom. Active in healing arts for more than 20 years, Linda was moved and inspired by the power of the Records within herself and her clients. She began teaching this practice to students in 1996 and, today, she has successfully taught thousands of students to accurately read the Akashic Records.
Tickets $25 in advance, $30 at the door.
