Chrissie Astell & Peter Stanford

Talking with Angels - (Who does, why, how, and where?)

What it is that angels offer? Why do more people today believe in angels than in God ( according to recent opinion polls)? In this practical and experiential workshop Chrissie Astell (Author of 'Seven Steps into Angel Light', Angel Expert for 'Spirit & Destiny' and 'Soul & Spirit' magazines and Spiritual Coach and Facilitator of over 20 years) and the broadcaster and religious and cultural historian Peter Stanford, author of 'Angels: A Visible and Invisible History', explore why this is happening, and describe – in tangible, emotional and spiritual terms – the energetic mystery that has resonated down the ages, across all the faiths, and continues to do so powerfully in our own supposedly secular times. (Includes practical exercises and meditation)
