Unitarian Universalist Fellowship meets Jan. 27Published 9:09am Thursday, January 24, 2013
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will meet on Sunday, Jan. 27, at the Tryon Youth Center on Rt. 176N at 10:30 a.m.
The speaker will be Pamela Meyer Crissey, an ordained minister with the Alliance of Divine Love.
Her topic will be “Shamanism, Old Science, Fringe Science and How It Will Change Our Life.”
“Shamanism is the oldest form of spirituality and healing practice on our planet. Since it was suppressed by modern western science, what have we lost? Or is it lost? Quantum mechanics was discovered over a century ago, but the only results we have seen from it are nuclear weapons and nuclear power. However, the fringes of science are delving more deeply into the quantum world and discovering that our reality may be what shamanism was working with all along. These paradigm-shaking discoveries will lead us to where the New Age thinkers have also been for years — that we are much more powerful than we think we are, and we have many more capabilities to change our world. It’s an exciting time to be alive.”
Pamela Meyer Crissey is an ordained minister with the Alliance of Divine Love and is treasurer of its Carolinas Chapter. She has also published many “new thought” and esoteric books since 1991 through their publishing house – Granite Publishing. One of her passions since pursuing a degree in health and wellness has been researching how the world of western science and its rigid assumption that we live in a mechanical world has been moving towards a deeper understanding of the wholeness of ancient traditions — a change that is desperately needed both for the Earth and for our own bodies so that we may find more balance and live the full lives we are meant to live.
