Questers Spring Conference
Lighten Up!
May 13 – 15, 2016
Olds, AB

Location: Centennial Village
Olds College, Olds, AB

Olds College has done some extensive renovations to Centennial Village. Anar Kassam, a Quester, has been to it and reported back to Carol:

"Each room comes with its own bathroom, double bed, a desk, chair and night table, small and simple but will serve us well, considering the pricing. We need to bring a hairdryer, an alarm clock and she suggested a fan because of no air conditioning. The have quite a few rooms, but if anyone wants the cheaper townhouses, they will be available depending on availability. I do not believe they have the shared rooms anymore at the Frank Drysdale wing. One can check in at the front desk and then take their car around. The front desk is not open late.

They will provide bedding and towels

They also accommodate RVs. Loads of parking around and at the back. We would be using the fully equipped Alumni Conference Room with 4 TV Screens if we have a large crowd, very professional! ... and some other breakaway rooms on the same floor.

The cafeteria has been redone very well. They accommodate gluten free but not nut allergies.

The Village facility has an open design on the main floor where we could have our party with lots of round tables and chairs but I loved the back corner of the new cafeteria with lots of sofas and looked large enough but very comfy".

Gathering into Community through Sacred Circle Dance
Friday May 13
7:30 pm – 9 pm

Joining in the Dance is a popular way of creating community around the world. We will use gentle, well-­- taught steps to bring our group into oneness and community for the weekend. No partners needed, even two left feet can move in the same direction as the group. Dances are taught fully before adding music. We will explore gentle simple circle dances.

Modern Megalithic Geomancy
Saturday May 14
9:30 am – 5 pm

  • Designing and Building Modern Stone Circles -­- Stone Circles are an ancient technology that still works in this day. Ivan will discuss some of the 27 full-­-sized stone circles he has designed and built. He will describe the intent behind each circle and the ways of working with the spirit of the Earth to help and heal. All the previous will be illustrated by some amazing photos.
  • Dragons! Dragons are huge forces of nature. Druids and modern Geomancers will meet them, and so it is essential to understand and learn how to communicate with them. This session will be both a serious and light-­-hearted exploration of dragons: what they are, how to build relationship with them, work with them, summon them, and how to ride on their backs into the stars.
  • Build a Living, Human Stone Circle -­- We will go outside and to build a stone circle. We will then journey to the realm of stones to find our ‘inner stone’. We will return with our stone and make an alive, human stone circle, which will become a collective power spot on the earth. We will then conduct a healing ceremony, directing earth energies to places that need healing.
  • Create a Dream Temple -­- It is useful to create a long-­-lasting temple that is invisible, yet a real power spot on the Earth’s surface. Depending on its intent and dedication, the circle will generate the energy to fulfill its purpose, and it can be programmed to dissolve once that purpose has been met. Using the energy we have already generated in the workshop so far, we will create a dream temple that will continue to function after we have left. It will function for as long as necessary, for a purpose we will discover together.
  • Completion of the workshop including any questions, psychic cleansing and grounding.

Time Travel: You CAN Go Back in Time and CHANGE it!
Sunday May 15
9:30 am – 4 pm

We all have them – some glorious – some pretty messy or horrible – those past and future lives that still color our current lives. Our resumes of past lives give us the huge range of experiences in the Planet Earth School. Originally trained in the 70’s to do past life work, Sandee has successfully done past life resolution work on thousands in groups and individually. She now shares some amazing shortcuts to help us discover, understand, completely heal and resolve the messy ones. We will learn to clear the past and change the future. Many of these lives and circumstances overshadow us now. They may very well powerfully and directly affect our health, finances, relationships, happiness and so much more. Bring your pendulums, along with your issues and lets get some resolution. This is not just information. We will get work done and all leave much LIGHTER!
