5-11-2011 Recognizing Spirit Contact class

On Wednesday May 11th, I will be teaching "Recognizing Spirit Contact", a non-credit course, sponsored by Jamestown Community College.

Would you like to recognize the ways your loved ones in Spirit are communicating with you? Do you receive signs or other communication from them already and want to understand them more?

Participants will learn about the senses used to perceive spirits, the ways in which mediumship facilitates spirit contact through right practice and intention, and techniques to establish and enjoy occasional contact with friends, family, and pets.

Join me for a lively evening of looking at the ways the ‘dead’ communicate with us as well as learn techniques that can foster contact. You may be your own best medium.

For more info about the class, visit http://www.willawhite.com/.  The course meets from 6-8 p.m. at the Jamestown JCC Campus. To register for the class, contact JCC’s Center for Continuing Education at 716-338-1005. Tuition is $29.

Hope to see you at class!

Strong winds

Strong winds have been blowing and whirling around us --- and physically, emotionally, and spiritually, many people seem to be experiencing important changes in their lives. 

When we go through phases such as this, it is important to practice self-discipline with our thoughts because things that were only thoughts manifest quickly into the physical through words and actions.  So harness your thoughts and expect Good, expect a change for the better. 

Begin to act as if you expect success, happiness and abundance.  Prepare for your good by doing something to show you expect it to come, for active faith impresses the subconscious and creates Good.

As spring brings the shift from snow to sunshine, we may experience gentle showers one day, heavy rainstorms the next, and gusting winds the next. These are excellent symbols of how some thoughts may cloud the sunshine of the mind. Remember that these are temporary states of existence and these too shall pass into beautiful weather. 

Experience the renewal of Spring:  Allow your soul to bloom and accept the good God has for you.  April showers bring May flowers!

5-4-2011 "Lily Dale History" Class

I teach spiritual development classes at Jamestown Community College.  And NOW is the time to register for my JCC spring classes! 

On the evening of Wednesday May 4 (in 3 weeks), I will be teaching "Lily Dale History".  This is a non-credit course sponsored by the Jamestown Community College Continuing Education Department & the Chautauqua County Visitor's Bureau.  Here's the class synopsis:

Deep in the heart of Chautauqua County is a special place called Lily Dale, a Spiritualist community that is the worlds’ largest center for the science, philosophy, and religion of Spiritualism.
How did Lily Dale come into existence? And what has propelled it forward for over 130 years?
Learn about the history of Lily Dale and the evolution of modern-day mediumship, spirit communication, and Spiritualism from spiritual medium and teacher Willa White, a registered Lily Dale medium and resident of this charming village.
Usually my JCC classes meet the college in Jamestown NY (about a half hour from Lily Dale), however this time we will have the wonderful opportunity to meet on my home turf in Lily Dale at the Assembly Hall.  With the many pictures of the Spiritualism's pioneers on the walls, the Assembly Hall is a great place to discuss the history of Lily Dale.


As a special bonus:  My class will be allowed exclusive access to Lily Dale’s Museum (which is normally closed during the off-season) for an intimate look at some of the museum’s special artifacts.

See the above photo: That is me standing in the Lily Dale Museum among some of the artifacts and portraits.  That is a spirit trumpet in my hand, one of the items used for physical phenomena in old-time seances. 

Class size is limited, so register EARLY.  The class fee is $35.  Contact the JCC Center for Continuing Education at 716-338-1005.  This 3 hour class class starts promptly at 6:00 p.m.

Hope to see you at class!

"The Power of Embodied Prayer" VanPraagh chat event 4/12/11

Via his website, well-known medium James Van Praagh offers teaching seminars via online chats on Tuesdays evenings. During JVP Chat Events, a variety of authors, speakers and practitioners share seminar-type chats on interesting and diverse topics. Chat Events include a text-only seminar from the guest speaker as well as an interactive question and answer session.

Over the years, this has been a fun and educational way for student mediums to explore and learn online!  Chat events are free and they last about one hour.  And this week, I will be returning as the special guest for James' chat seminar to teach and inspire.

Tuesday April 12th
The Power of Embodied Prayer"
9:00 pm Eastern Time

Brief synopsis of my topic for the chat event this week:

Prayer is the most universal expression of the Presence of God. Many of us express devotion, anger, love, and many other emotions in prayer using mental or verbal prayer. Now is the time to learn how our actions and movements can be expressions of prayer using the spiritual practice of Embodied Prayer.

During this uplifting chat event, Embodied Prayer will be defined and explained. Join us as we explore the ways our bodies can embody prayer and recognize how our bodies can be places where prayer is actively happening.

Being a strongly clairsentient (feeling) medium, I have had ample opportunity to experience how my body can embody prayer.  I utilize this special understanding in my professional life as a Medium-Spiritual Teacher and in my personal life. During this chat event, I will share ways to express active recognition of the Presence of God through Embodied Prayer, including some of the techniques of Embodied Prayer I personally use in my spiritual practice.

The chat event will be begin at 9:00 p.m. in the JVP Chat Special Events Room!  To join me at the chat event, you must first register as a JVP member (click the link and follow the instructions), then you will be allowed access to the Chat Room.
