About the event
Embark on an enlightening exploration into the mysteries of life, death, and the realms beyond with our transformative seminar, LIFE AFTER DEATH: Understanding the Soul’s Journey. Led by healer & teacher Cristalle Anne—a medical intuitive, natural health practitioner, & psychic medium—these sessions offer a comprehensive understanding of the soul's journeys.
Cristalle will share her knowledge based on her own daily personal experiences working with clients with trauma. Everything she shares, she has experienced first-hand between her, her clients and the unseen realm, reaching a point of so many confirmations of truth, she just has to share what she knows. Her purpose for sharing these truths is to give you a deeper understanding, to not fear death, and live a happier fulfilled life while we are visiting and experiencing life on this beautiful earth.
This seminar is a sanctuary for learning, healing, and understanding where your loved ones (animals or human) have gone on their journey. Cristalle will empower you to take control of your life with less fear and more happiness and allow the space to connect deeply with your loved ones. Come join us in a safe, inspirational environment to find peace with life’s ultimate transition and embrace the journey with an open heart.

We will cover sensitive topics such as depression, suicidal tendencies, addiction, psychosis, dementia, sexual abuse and its many forms.
2. Death’s Many Faces
A compassionate look at how souls transition under various circumstances including illness, murder, accidents, miscarriage or abortion and drug-induced states. This session aims to provide comfort and understanding regardless of the nature of the departure of your loved ones.
3. Unexplained Spiritual Phenomena - special focus on children’s issues
Sleepwalking & Night Terrors
Special focus on children who are seeing spirits & ‘monsters’ under the bed & why a child insists the wardrobe must be shut at bed time!
Phenomena like sleep paralysis and night terrors.
4. Understanding why you 'feel' a presence or why a space 'feels' heavy.
Explore the nature of earth-bound spirits, the significance of haunted houses and lands, and how these phenomena influence the living.
5. Understand how to show respect and ask permission when building a new house or moving to a new area, or entering unfamiliar land.
Cristalle is a powerful medical intuitive, shaman, medicine woman, seer, medium, and clairvoyant. Utilizing all the Clair senses, she bridges the gaps between the body, mind, and spiritual realms, providing unique insights and profound healing in a straight-forward, down to earth manner.

Club Manouche at
Kauaeranga Music

Club Manouche at Kauaeranga Music 26 July @ 7:30pm
After a six month self-imposed recess, Kauaeranga Music is back for the second half of 2024, and celebrate this with Club Manouche on Friday 26th July at 7:30pm.
Featuring Professor James Sneyd on violin, Craig Denham on accordion, foot percussion and vocals, Phil (the shredder) Beatson on guitar and Aaron Coddel on bass Club Manouche play an intoxicating live set of gypsy swing classics, mixed with an eclectic selection of odd sorts.
With the tangible camaraderie of seasoned players and long friendships, their performances are filled with passion, gusto, a sense of humour and mischievousness. They certainly not beyond taking a well-known tune down the wormhole of contagious improvisational outbursts to see what’s there.
The recommendation from the artists is to turn up with your best bohemian spirit and your dancing shoes. These guys know how to have fun with music and to give everyone a smile that only comes from a night out with great live music.
WHEN: Friday 26th July 2024 @ 7:30pm
WHERE: Kauaeranga Hall, 437 Kauaeranga Valley Rd, Thames
TICKETS: Door sales $25
