Nanaimo Metaphysical Society – Network News

Nanaimo’s Metaphysical Network is growing faster than we could have imagined. It seems that every new speaker brings along newly-interested friends. It is very probable that we will require a larger venue next fall, in order to accommodate our ever-increasing numbers. Currently, over 500 are on our email list, by request.

Recently three former speakers collaborated in the creation of a special presentation that expands what we mean by networking. Sound healer and intuitive Shannon Wills will introduce mediums and intuitives Leoralea Aquino and Lisa Holloway, who have created a presentation that gives networking a greater meaning. The resulting event should encourage other presenters to expand the limits of what a presentation about any facet of metaphysics can be. Each will demonstrate, with readings for members of the audience, their unique approach to the basic integrity of only the most helpful and hopeful aspects of mediumship.

The other major activity of the Network this spring is planning for the Second Annual Summer Solstice Celebration on June 21st 2008. Email Judith at if you’d like to set up a booth to advertise your ‘work’ to fellow network members.

This year the event is expected to begin at two pm and continue until sundown (about 9:30 pm). We expect more card readers, picnickers, musicians, drummers, dancers, artists and costumed revellers this year. Because this Solstice Celebration is on private property, it is for people on our email list only. (You must have attended at least one metaphysical event to receive an invitation.) Everyone will be required to produce an invitation at the gate! With over 500 people on our email list at the last count, this event is bound to be a wonderful networking opportunity

Last year’s Network Summer Solstice highlights included a portable labyrinth, musicians, craft and sales booths, drummers, various psychic readers, pony rides, and, of course, fun around the fire. Young and old toasted marshmallows, roasted hot dogs and enjoyed the fire. This Midsummer Night features ancient traditions celebrated in many countries around the world, usually centred around bonfires. Nanaimo’s Metaphysical Network is well on the way to creating our own unique Annual Solstice celebration.
