Learn The Sacred Art of
Soul Messages
Attention readers and working psychics: Expand the reach of your readings and the depth of knowing shared with your clients through the profound Soul-to-Soul connection of a Soul Message™. In the first half of this workshop, I will teach you how to arrive at the first aspect of the integrated Soul known as The Inner Awe™. From this wondrous space within, you will learn how to connect with your client through their Inner Awe™ and then learn how to take that connection and move into direct communication with Soul. It is here that you deliver short, channeled Soul Messages™ to your client, wisdom and levels of insight that exceeds all others. I will further teach you how to integrate aspects of Soul Messages™ into an expanded traditional reading. We will address aspects of free-will, higher potentials, ethics, and discernment. This is an advanced and hands-on intensive class. You must have significant prior experience, as a reader to attend this class. If you are unsure, please contact me directly at annalynette.1@gmail.com to discuss.​

Mindful Zen Painting is a practice that allows students to quiet the mind and tune into the present moment, creating a peaceful inner space where the mind relaxes and creative awareness deepens. It’s also a place where your inner artist awakens and your personal expression begins. This art and meditation practice can enhance your life through painting in the present moment. Each class begins with a brief meditation period, continues with a guided painting session, and ends with paintings that you can take home. Brush handling, color mixing, and painting techniques will be covered with step-by-step demonstrations. Enjoy improved concentration, reduced stress, and more positive thinking. Each class is two hours, and painting supplies are provided. No experience is necessary. 
$120 for four classes. Pre-registration and pre-payment are required in the ISD Bookstore
