The second Soul Talks’ Soiree Psychology, Tarot and Soul was held on January 24th at the Hilton Hotel, Victoria Square, Adelaide. Soirees are celebrations of our work and this evening event was full of good will and high energy! We were greeted with entertainment by Lizzie Hughes and her musical partner Michael Shanahan who are experienced local musicians. In spite of the high temperature over 80 people attended and funds were raised to support our work.
Nicola Lipscombe who is our Vice Chair acted as MC and introduced the keynote speaker Dr Tom Nehmy. Tom is an accredited training supervisor with the Psychology Board of Australia and award winning clinical psychologist and founder of the ‘Healthy Minds’ program. He stole many hearts with his humour and easy to follow strategies for achieving happiness and wellbeing. Bravely, he shared his belief of life after death and reincarnation and quoted Professor Ross Menzies:
Nicola introduced our guest Tarot reader Sveta. Sveta has had a most interesting life. She was born in Ukraine and grew up as a normal child within the Soviet Union. Her favorite subject at school was mathematics – she loved the pure logic of math where 2+2 always equals 4! University followed and she obtained a Bachelor of Civil engineering in 1987. After 5 years working as an Engineer she moved even close to her dream of working with numbers and received a Graduated Certificate in Accounting and began work as an accountant in 1992.
She started to learn about Tarot and healing in 1995 before she came to live in Australia. Little did she know that it would be her love of spirituality which would open the door to her life in Australia. She found the Rosa Tingey New Age Spiritual Mission in Unley where she continued to learn about Tarot, meditate and do healing.
The religious psychiatrist Scott Peck wrote the book The Road Less Travelled and stated that the unconscious needs to be explored because it is wiser than we are and is our interface with God. Tarot is one way of tapping into this guidance. Divination cards offer a way to project certain ideas, whether subconscious or not, and to consider potential outcomes for important decisions.
Because death anxiety is a major deterrent to a peaceful passing from this world to the next, a Course on Conquering Death Anxiety is being held at the Hilton on March 28th with these topics and presenters:
Bringing Death Anxiety to Light – Dr Scott Zarcinas
Practising Mindfulness for relieving death anxiety – Anne Rodgers
Gaining insights from mind mapping the energy chakras – Joy Nugent
Unscrambling Grief – Gail Miller
Healing Ourselves by Healing the Ancestors – Stephanie Jarrett
The full program will be available shortly. You can book via the website.
We were honoured to have the author of this book in our audience for the Soiree:
"Millions of these mysterious events, happening to ordinary people in ordinary life, provide openings into the infinite that the laboratory is unable to duplicate."
– Louis LaGrand, PhD
Thank you to those who continue to support our work of seeking the Divine through different lens and promoting self healing.
