    Experiencer's Network ~ 11/27/15 ~ Janet, Theresa J, Karen & Diana

    in Education

    Panelists Janet Kira Lessin, Karen Christine Patrick, Theresa J. Morris, Diana McClintock and ??? and join us on the Experiencer's Network.

    As a group we have a huge interest in taking our work to the world in a series of experiencer's conferences.  We envision six regional conferences in the USA - North East, South East, Mid North, Mid South, North West, South West. Eventually we'd like to add Hawaii, Australia, Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and other locations internationally.  We're expanding, growing and gathering more and more members every day.  This movement's growing so fast, it's taking on a life all it's own and there's very little we must do to make it happen.  But, and... we are getting more organized daily and our gathering of the tribe virtually on internet radio is an indication that we're on the right track.

    Join us. Participate in whatever fashion suits you. Donate if you wish.  Sign up, volunteer, call in, contribute your time and energy. All the above makes these conferences happen. They're for all of us.  All donations go towards creating these conferences. Eventually we'll have scholarships for those who need assistance getting there. It's a huge vision and there are many ways to manifest them into 3D physicality.  The Star Trek conferences had thousands. We only need a 3 to 5 hundred to make each regional conference a success. Together we make this happen.  For more information or to contribute call 808-244-4103 or email aquarianradio@gmail.com. Please put "CONFERENCES" in the subject line.
