    in Spirituality

    Shirley Battie was born in London UK. On first try at meditation at age 54 she had instant contact with guides and off world beings who graphically showed her what could happen to the planet and the future of the human race if we did not take notice. It got her attention. Since then she has been taught by spirit helpers, many of them ET’s. She now gives talks and workshops on psychic development, channelling, mind travelling and mind awake meditation. At 80 years she is still a world traveller, going wherever spirit sends her.


    She has published four nonfiction books and now has written her latest as fiction – CHOSEN PLANET. this book is about Kate who is the character and her intrusion through mind travel into a world that is kept hidden from the public. As a result she is targeted by the shadow government. She is assisted by her space family.


    This covers facts not usually brought to public notice but which may open a few minds. Although a fictional story  has been created the facts within are true and relevant to today’s world. Her aim is to help others do what she does, that means mind travel into the future to change so that a brighter future may be had by all.

    LDSS Announces Night of Champions to Honor Differently-abled Working Adults and Their Employers


    (SAVANNAH, GA) The Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society (LDSS) announces the sixth annual Night of Champions will be hosted Thursday, May 14 at 6 p.m. at the Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa – Hotel Grand Ballroom. This community celebration distinguishes local organizations that hire and retain differently-abled people, including those with Down syndrome, and recognizes the contributions made by these employees.


    According to the National Down Syndrome Congress, 80 percent of the 15,000 people of working age (18-60) with Down syndrome are unemployed. Low expectations and a lack of understanding about the skills and work ethic many people with Down syndrome possess have contributed to this statistic. LDSS hopes to reverse this trend by encouraging Savannah area employers to give differently-abled workers a chance.


    “Dignity and self-respect are borne out of feeling that what we have to offer makes a difference,” said LDSS Night of Champions Chairperson, Allyson Harvin. 


    This year’s Night of Champions will be emceed again by celebrity chef and author, Jamie Deen. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased online at nightofchampions.org


    For more information, please contact Allyson Harvin at awharvin@gmail.com.


    The Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society (LDSS) is a family support group to benefit people with Down syndrome and their families through local leadership, outreach, education, and advocacy to champion and celebrate acceptance and inclusion. Meetings are held every 4th Tuesday of the month. LDSS is an affiliate of the National Down Syndrome Society. For more information about LDSS, visit http://www.ldssga.org/
