Her music is sold throughout North America, Europe, Japan and Australia. Her acclaimed solo albums include Love Holding Love and Savasana.

Intuition “defined” is “…the ability to acquire knowledge without reason or rational thought.”
We all have flashes of spontaneous psychic phenomenon in our lives (the person who pops in your head – then you hear from or “bump into” them, the dream that comes true…)…but we often write it off – or at best don’t believe we can proactively access that ability within ourselves.
Join Holistic Intuitive Gina Spriggs, as she introduces a failsafe method to access your gifts!
Walk away from this session having done your own reading.
Required materials: 3 Questions you would liked answered, on 3 sheets of paper – each question/paper numbered.
Cost $35

Required Materials: An Open Mind and a physical or emotional issue.
