 Living Many Lives – Past Life Regression
Sponsored by the Butler Library

Tuesday, August 11, 2020
6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Presented by RoseMarie Rubinetti Cappiello, Spiritual Healing Medium
The participants are guided through a meditative process where details, memories and events of other lifetimes are revealed.  We then process this information and glean details and energy that offer profound insight and healing into their current life.   Past Life experiences are deeply healing, transformative and life altering. Major shifts and insights occur here that are never forgotten.   Energy is retrieved and blocks dissolve.
This program is FREE for participants and paid for by the Public Libraries of Butler, Kinnelon, Pequannock and Riverdale, New Jersey and is open to anyone from anywhere, first come, first served on Zoom.
