Sunday, March 12th: Knock Knock!

In this two hour presentation/workshop, Edward Zula talks with participants about the different ways spirits of our loved ones communicate with us from the other side. “Sometimes they knock, play with lights, surprise us with familiar scent, come to us in dreams, and even hide or move objects,” says Edward Zula. “But no matter what it is, we are let wondering if it is spirit and ‘what did it mean ?'” Our desire to understand these messages and find meaning in them is what inspired Edwards to offer this healing workshop. “We want to know if our loved one is just saying hello when they knock a picture off the wall, or if there’s some other meaning. It can leave us frustrated, confused, and worried, which is not very helpful if we are still processing from our grief.”

Entry is 10$ per person. Please call 252-758-7656 to reserve your spot today. Must pay in advance. Limit 20 participants
