(Due to time constraints and numbers in attendance, you are not guaranteed a message) However, the messages brought forth usually have a high relevance for many members of the audience and the energies brought forth from the spiritual dimensions always have a healing and inspirational effect on everyone. So come join us and receive the love, energy and messages from your loved ones in spirit who care so very much for you!!

November Program

Wed., November 15             7:30 PM

“An Evening with Archangel Metatron”


Nicole Bowdler
Spiritual Medium


Welcome to the Our (Angelic) Fundraiser Event!

This November, we are offering our final program for the year with a channeling presentation from the celestial realm that will “knock your socks off’!

Nicole Bowdler, spiritual channel and medium from Ft. Worth, Texas, will be literally “flying in” to offer an evening of joy, humor and inspiration as she channels the energy and worldview of the Archangel Metatron for our NHMS community. Ms. Bowdler has been connected to the Angelic Realm since birth and has been a channel for spirit for the last ten years working almost exclusively with the energies of Archangel Metatron.

The Archangel Metatron is understood to be one of the most powerful angels in the celestial hierarchy.  He has been described as the “scribe of God” who oversees the Akashic records, recording the good deeds that people do in “The Book of Life”.

Archangel Metatron will talk at great length about discerning Spiritual Knowledge and Truth and will also be discussing the different dimensions of reality that exist and how to navigate the physical dimension (as we know it here on planet Earth).  He will also have a very specific and grand message for those in attendance of this program.  Ultimately, Archangel Metatron will endeavor, as all angels do, to help us understand how to achieve a state of peace and joy by encouraging us to stay positive in our thoughts; centered, balanced, grounded in our energies and confident in all that we do!

Each member of the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions directly to Archangel Metatron  as Ms. Bowdler’s unique style of channeling allows for the audience to ask questions directly to “him”. Metatron is known to offer guidance in a way that is useful and fruitful and often uses humor and laughter to explain his perspective.

So, they say that “angels fly high because they take themselves lightly”.  So, come see how light(ly) you can feel and be after this evening’s presentation when you will feel the light (and the love and the wisdom) from the angelic realm.

Admission to this program will be $25 at the door and $20 online.  All proceeds will benefit the New Hope Metaphysical Society to continue their programming for the next year.

October Program

Wednesday, October 18         7:30 PM

Healing Negative Karma


Hugh Strain


Master Energy Healer , Hugh Strain, who comes from Washington, D.C. will be the featured speaker for our October meeting.  Hugh will be offering a very unique program  about Healing Negative Karma which will include a lecture, power point presentation and video on the importance of clearing one’s karmic patterns and conditions in one’s life. Mr. Strain wants us to know that the information he is offering this evening is being done so at a time in Earth’s history when all of humanity is required to uplift their frequency and soul standing to support Mother Earth in her transition.  Clearing negative karma and increasing one’s health will allow each person to serve humanity and the earth  in a more profound manner.

The key message that he wishes to present is that all illness is caused by blockages at three levels- Soul, Energy and Matter with soul blockages (negative karma) being the most important to clear first as they are responsible for the majority of physical illness in one’s life. Hugh will provide an extensive description and discussion about key negative karmas that the majority of people are involved with and will, later in his program, present various facilitated exercises and practices to clear negative Karma (Soul blockages) including sacred chants, calligraphy tracing, forgiveness practices and preparations for a fire burning ceremony to be done on New Years Day 2018. Q&A sessions will take place before the first break and after each facilitated exercise.

NOTE: Hugh Strain will remain in the Doylestown area on Thursday, October 19  and Friday, October 20 to offer healing sessions for those who may have an interest in furthering their spiritual journey. This work is called The Reconnection and is unique in that it must be conducted in person (45 min. each day) for two consecutive days. Healing sessions will be conducted on the hour from 9am – 8pm with 12noon and 6pm unavailable. A detailed description is located at this link:  The Reconnection:   http://www.thereconnection.com/eric-pearl/reconnective-healing-the-reconnection/. There will ONLY BE 10 OPENINGS for this work.  The cost is $333 payable by check or cash only. If interested, please schedule in advance with Hugh at: hughjstrain@gmail.com

“The Highly Sensitive Person:
Evolutionary Forerunners for the New Age 

Tracie NicholsCareer Development Coach, Healer /Aromatherapist, Nature Intuitive

Have you ever been called “too sensitive”? “Too complicated” or “too emotional?” “Too easily distracted or overwhelmed by your environment?” Do you crave meaningful work? Do you feel misunderstood by your family or friends, peers or colleagues because of your sensitivity or deep empathy? Then you may be one of the 15 – 20% of our population who identify as a Highly Sensitive Person.

Highly Sensitive People is a term coined by Elaine Aron, Ph.D. in her national bestseller. “The Highly Sensitive Person,” describing people whose nervous systems are wired differently than the rest of the population. According to Aron’s research, one person out of every five has this trait of high sensitivity. This physical difference in their “wiring” makes them highly sensitive to their environment, often intellectually gifted, and quite intuitive. 

Tracie Nichols, M.A. will be talking about the phenomena of the Highly Sensitive Person (or HSP), her own journey of self discovery as a  highly sensitive person and how she has learned to incorporate her gifts to create a healthy, balanced and fulfilling life. She will also describe how an HSP has the opportunity to use their gifts to promote and nourish change on a local, community and even global scale.

In her own words, ““I think of HSP’s as evolutionary forerunners.   I believe that people gifted with high sensitivity possess ways of interacting with the world that are needed to help us evolve into a more loving, compassionate and mature culture. The way their nervous systems work – deeply, intuitively, with intense perceptions and tons of innovative insights – is a gift that can be used to create a wide range of personal, community-wide or even even global changes.  Because these gifts and ways of interacting aren’t yet the norm, it can be challenging to recognize, accept, and use them to their fullest potential, especially when navigating a society still clinging to “power over” rather than “power with” ways of doing things. Bringing this trait into the light, now, is essential to creating a world where every human being is safe, connected, loved, supported and appreciated for who they are.”

Tracie will help you explore how to use your gifts of high sensitivity through lecture, guided experiences and conversation and a rich question and answer session touching on the following topics:

  • Determining your gifts and abilities as a highly sensitive person
  • Smart, self-nourishing ways to persist as a sensitive person in a challenging world
  • Standing strong while staying sensitive
  • Noticing what needs to be changed…even when others don’t see it. (Like being canaries in a cultural coal mine.)
  • Starting something when your voice feels small, unheard or unappreciated
  • Highly sensitive ways of being a leader

Certified Master Vibrational Sound Therapist,
Quantum Metaphysician and Angel Intuitive

Program Description

Lisa Alexander, Meditation teacher and Sound Therapist, and  creator/practitioner  of the Alexander Method of Vibrational Sound & Energy Therapy™ will be presenting a unique program for the audience on sound healing. With uniquely-designed tuning forks, calibrated to the same frequencies as ancient Solfeggio tones, Lisa is able to facilitate the release of blocked chi (energy) as well as stimulate the flow of chi throughout the body. Additionally, the vibrational rate of the energy fields of the body are elevated and optimized, cleared and balanced, assisting the body to heal itself in a safe and gentle fashion. This technique also elevates one’s personal vibrational rate and keeps this rate sustained and maintained well after a healing session is over. This modality has been known to dramatically reduce stress, help with sleep issues, reduce addictions, improve mental clarity and bring about dramatic emotional and physical healing. The proof has been in the miraculous outcomes received from hundreds of clients and students who have come to Ms. Alexander over the years.

This evening, you will be able to experience some of these miracles yourself as Lisa will explain her healing technique and how she came by it, give demonstrations of her sound therapy with the Tuning forks on audience participants and will also guide the audience through one of her unique chakra clearing meditations. She will also leave time for questions and answers and will bring some of her healing meditation CD’s and products for purchase. Refreshments will be available throughout the evening.  Off street parking is available.

“Creating a Positive Future through the Power of Intention”


Sheila Reynolds

Spiritual Medium and Meditation Teacher


Many of my friends and family, as well as myself, have been dealing with disorientation, anxiety, anger, and fear since The Election. I’ve identified these as areas of concern:

  • How to distinguish fake news from the real facts. How to trust ourselves to know what are lies and what is the truth
  • How to deal with the government’s thoughtless disregard in making decisions affecting our country and the security of the entire world.
  • How to ameliorate the constant shaming, humiliation, bullying, and lack of empathy coming to the surface on all levels of society

To help people re-center, ground and balance (and to become more pro-active), we will concentrate on the qualities of Truth, Wisdom, and Kindness as our new focus. During this evening’s program, we will  focus on those qualities, through meditation and reflection, and  feeling the power of those qualities,  project their power out into the world, creating a new energy dynamic for the world.

To make an intention for the Good, for Truth, for Wisdom and for Kindness is a necessary pre-requisite to changing the world and its direction.  Let us change the world together  through intentional community and sharing.

Won’t you join us this evening?
