Nurturing the Angels Within Workshops

Most music lovers can probably tell you that music nourishes their soul so I thought the spiritual workshop and discussion group series, Nurturing the Angels Within, that I’ve scheduled at Vinyl Revival over the next five months, would be another good way to feed the soul. The series asks you to have an open mind, open heart and sense of adventure and let the world of angel energy enrich your life. Who can’t use a little life enrichment?

The first event in the series takes place on Wednesday, February 12th from 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. with a movie night featuring the film “No One Dies in Lily Dale.”  The film gives a candid portrayal of Lily Dale, a spiritualist community in upstate New York, where most of the town’s residents are registered Mediums who regularly give spiritual readings to visitors through alleged communication with the deceased.  After the 90 minute video, there will be a discussion on The Village of Spirits hosted by Barbra Ann, Reiki Master & Medium, Emissary with Society of Light and a life long student of Lily Dale in New York. The series runs through June with a number of monthly events and workshops usually on the third Wednesday of the month.  Events will begin with a meet and greet at 6:30 with complimentary light refreshments and drinks and programs run from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. Admission for most events is $10. Pre-registration by email to is encouraged, but not required.
