Guest Speaker: Kathryn Harwig
Topic: 2013: The year of new beginning

2012, with all its prophecy and hype, is over.  What is next?  2013 is a year when things begin anew, in a very different fashion.  We are starting a new era that will contain the challenge of re-inventing our lives and purpose while also ushering in the joyfulness of a new start.  Kathryn Harwig will give you concrete tips on how to use both your intuition and your logic to help you thrive in the new year.  She will discuss how past life karma no longer will have the same influence on people and how that will affect both your professional and personal lives.  She will also give intuitive insights on trends and events coming up in 2013.

Bio: Kathryn Harwig has been an intuitive since birth. She grew up on a farm in Hinckley, Minnesota, where her psychic abilities were seen by her parents and neighbors as a surprising and yet accepted skill. She went on to attend the University of St. Cloud, Minnesota, receiving a Bachelor of Science degree (magna cum laude) in Psychology and Sociology. After graduation she became a probation officer in Minneapolis, Minnesota. For many years she supervised and wrote pre-sentence investigations regarding adult felons. She then attended the University of Minnesota in a graduate program of Criminal Justice Studies, specializing in the prediction of dangerousness. In 1982 she graduated cum laude from William Mitchell College of Law with a Doctorate in Law. She was a successful partner in a law firm for many years before leaving the practice of law to pursue her full time career as a psychic, medium, speaker and writer.

Kathryn is the author of seven books, Your Life In the Palm Of Your Hand (1994), The Millennium Effect (1996), The Intuitive Advantage (2000), The Angel in the Big Pink Hat (2005), Palm Visions (2008), and co-author of Invest In Joy (2009). Her latest book, The Return of Intuition, (Llewellyn Worldwide) has won the 2011 Bronze Independent Publisher Book Award (IPPY) medal in the New Age/Mind Body Spirit category. Her books have been published in English, German, Russian and Dutch. She was a regular columnist for The Edge Magazine for many years and her writings have been published in magazines and newspapers around the world.

7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Meeting and Program

Guest Speaker: Laurie Phillips and Mary Cayan
Topic: Vision Cards – Profound & Playful Transformation

Create a deck of powerful personal images — Vision Cards — that embody your goals, values, hopes and dreams. During our members only meeting, you’ll develop a vision of the biggest life possible for you and start creating it right away! Encouraged by coaches Laurie Phillips and Mary Cayan, you’ll use beautiful stock photography and illustration books to cut out images and make a deck of cards that hold the juicy bigness of what your heart really wants. You’ll be able to use these cards as daily inspirers, reminders, goal-setters, meditation aids, even decision-makers.

Bios: Laurie Phillips helps women release stressful blocks that prevent them from having the income, career, health or relationships they most want. She’s also an international workshop leader, trainer (Abbott Northwestern Hospital’s Penny George Institute for Health and Healing, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota, Adler School of Coaching, State of Minnesota Work Force Center, Struthers Parkinson’s Center), and artist. For the past 12 years Laurie has been offering Vision Card Workshops, seriously playful gatherings that have set the stage for many success stories. Her biggest success story is herself — she found a way out of debt, her husband, and their house by using Vision Cards.

Mary Cayan, MSW, PCC, is a personal coach and artist with 20+ years of experience in assisting organizations and individuals to articulate and design their visions and make them real. She has worked extensively in the non-profit and government sectors doing needs assessment, grant-writing, strategic planning and fundraising. Mary is a certified New Equations teacher. She’s been a docent with the Minneapolis Institute of Arts for 13 years and is a founding member of the L’artivist public art movement, partnering with the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, the Toronto, Ontario school system, and Friends School of Minnesota. For the past eight years, Mary has led workshops guiding life changes through the use of Vision Cards and creates card decks for initiating and sustaining her own life changes.

Guest Speaker: Vara Kamin
Topic: Hope Builder: The Embodiment of Change

In the evening’s presentation, Artist, Author and Former Nurse Vara Kamin will provide an opportunity to explore how one cultivates the concept of “hope-builder” within oneself and within others, and, as she says, “The potential for hope, growth and change that, as Feng Shui consultants, you so generously and compassionately provide to your clients.”  She will incorporate visual references from some of the healthcare-related projects she has been involved in during the past 15 years.

Kamin is a graduate of Massachusetts General Hospital School of Nursing, Boston, MA and a former Public Health Nurse. Her broad range of experience is reflective of her background in health care and her lifelong interest and studies in literature, philosophy, meditative practices, color and design. In 1980, after a decade in nursing and healthcare administration, Kamin pursued her artistic/writing career. Published credits include: Family Circle Magazine, Ladies Home Journal and other national magazines, as well as the publication of “The Gold Key in the Mahogany Box and Other Fables to Live By” (1992, The Berkley Publishing Group, NY).

Kamin’s original works of art have been commissioned by various health care, commercial and residential clients throughout the country. For more than a decade, a selected number of Kamin’s paintings have been replicated and placed in hospitals and healing centers throughout the country in a wide variety of adult and pediatric clinical care settings. Her Impressions of Light® images change the energy of a space by altering the intensity of light and interjecting color therapy in the form of visually-engaging, multi-layered paintings. The images provide healthcare practitioners, designers, architects and facility planners with a lighting solution that contributes to the transformation of high-stress environments into more relaxing spaces, and are appropriate for placement in a wide variety of healing environments.

In a medical world where both Eastern and Western medicine recognize the importance of the mind-body connection and the potential of an individual’s self-healing capabilities, Vara Kamin is acknowledged as “a pioneer in the field of art and healing and is now recognized as a leader in this phenomenon”. (Rollins, 2011 HERD Journal Vol. 4, Number 3 PP. 72-94.)
In February 2012, Kamin received the designation of an arts and health Distinguished Fellow for her outstanding vision, leadership and commitment to excellence in the field of Art and Healing.
