HARTFORD — Pinpoint of Light Spiritualist Center will offer a class on Spiritual Healing on April 29 at 12:30 p.m. at the Hartford Town Hall, 1190 Main Street, Hartford. Energy healing is used in many traditional healing modalities: polarity therapy, reflexology, acupressure, and Reiki, to name a few.
Spiritual healing is channeled through a medium, or healer, to transmit energy from higher realms of consciousness, from Spirit or the Universe. Learn more about plugging into this wonderful energy source and practice channeling that energy to heal yourself and others.
Topics discussed will include intelligent cells and organs in the body, energy fields in and around the body, learning to connect with Universal Energy, self-healing, absent healing, and laying on of hands.
Come and make a day of it by first attending Pinpoint of Light’s service at 10:30 a.m. and a potluck lunch. Contact Rev. Penny Frobese at 388-3436 or Robert Foster at 743-2613 for more information. A $5 donation is suggested.

April 29 - Jennifer Wixson, "A Frost Pocket of Goodness." About the mythical town of Sovereign, Maine (pop. 1,048) where the killing frost comes just in time to “squench” all budding attempts at narrow-mindedness and mean-spiritedness.

May 6 - Kate Braestrup, topic to be announced. Kate is a UU Minister, chaplain for the Maine Warden Service and celebrated author of the bestseller “Here if You Need Me.” Her most recent book is called “Beginner’s Grace.”
“There is no false piety here, nor is there much heady analysis either. Instead, there is an exquisitely informative, seductive, largely autobiographical but no holds barred frank, presentation of one chaplain’s own engagement with prayer.” - Phyllis Tickle, author of “The Great Emergence.”
Kate will also be speaking at the Norway Library on May 5 at 7 p.m.
Music will be provided by the choir, directed and accompanied by Heather Pierson. Coffee and refreshments will follow. Please join in.
