Rebecca Merz, PhD. will be joining the Pixie Dust team in November to offer psychomanteum sessions. The modern-day psychomanteum, developed by Dr. Raymond Moody, was derived from ancient practices in Greece. It is a dimly-lit ritual space with a mirror at one end used to focus attention. The mirror is angled to reflect the surrounding darkness. A psychomanteum session is a guided three-part process involving intention-setting, mirror-gazing, and integrating the experience. The psychomanteum is commonly used by grieving individuals who are open to exploring a possible connection with a deceased loved one. The experience may assist in addressing feelings of sadness, anger, guilt, or other emotions in response to the death of a family member, child, friend, pet, or other relationship. It is common for grieving individuals to desire or attempt to communicate with the deceased. Experiencing a psychomanteum session allows you to explore this desire in an emotionally supportive, safe, and confidential environment.
The psychomanteum may also be used by individuals seeking insight about major life transitions, recent losses, or other life questions. It is common for new perspectives, shifts, and creative solutions to emerge, leading to healing and positive change.

The Work of Byron Katie, Facilitated by Lee Greenbaum, Certified Facilitator
The Work of Byron Katie is a simple and profound process of inquiry–a way
to identify and question the stressful beliefs that cause us to suffer, a
way to clear the mind and move from confusion to understanding. Katie
found that when she believed her thoughts she suffered and that when she
didn’t believe her thoughts, she didn’t suffer, and that this is true for
every human being. Through the inquiry, the four questions of The Work,
you find your own answers, the ones that are true for you, and free
yourself from the prison of the mind.
The Work is a meditation, a way to end the internal war and a way to find
peace with yourself and with the world anyone with an open mind can do
Join me for this opportunity to experience the life changing power of
All are welcome regardless of experience with The Work.
