Introduction
Delve into the magic as Author and Certified Advanced Medium/Psychic, Lois Anne Smith, shares in-depth knowledge, insight, and techniques to develop and fine-tune your innate spiritual gifts. Yes, we all have them!

Lois Anne stepped onto a spiritual path in 1989 and opened her own healing center, The Cottage, in 2007. Over the years, The Cottage has grown into a beacon of light for all who come. Whether local or cross-country, her sessions are known for their high level of accuracy and healing messages. Lois Anne’s personal life also reflects the spiritual principals, ethics, and integrity that are the hallmark of her success.  

Beginning April 22, 2018 and running through October 2019, her new Spiritual Development Series offers 22 bite-size segments designed to propel you forward in your development. These workshops are chocked-full of information and exercises with some expanding into 4 or 6 week offerings for an even deeper exploration. 

Taken all together, they will create new heights of inner peace, connection and joyous purpose. Of course, you can also mix and match and attend the topic(s) that interest you the most. Each segment will offer guidance and insight for the beginner, intermediate and those on the path for many years.



Why Develop Personally/Spiritually:
As we experience life, each of us chooses whether to evolve. When growth occurs, we clear out the past (the immediate past, generational past, relationship past, even spiritual past). This process of letting go naturally allows our vibration to increase so more of our spirit can reside within the physical form. 

Today, more and more people are being sparked by their intuition and inner promptings to create new, exciting, expansive experiences. In doing so, we cast off the old and make room for new insights and realizations about ourselves and the world around us.

Each of us is already engaged in a profound personal transformation, all taking place with an abundance of support from both sides of the veil. As more of our light (true essence) comes in, the body becomes less constrained. Abilities that have laid dormant in mind and spirit become readily accessible. Our day-to-day lives become easier, our purpose clearer. Welcome home.

  • A fun exploration into the positive and negative archetypes (inherited patterns of thought) that reside within each chakra. 
  • Recommendations to gently shift from the negative persona into the positive one.

Love: It All Begins with You
Sept. 9, 2018, 9:30am - 11:30am, $35

Bring balance to your spiritual journey by increasing your awareness and application of spiritual principals. We’ll begin by delving into the topic of Love from the perspective of self. It can be easy to love our partners, children, animals, nature, pizza, etc., but do we love and care for ourselves with the same thought and attention? Do we even accept ourselves, much less tenderly appreciate ourselves? Join Lois Anne as she gets personal and shares about her near-death experience at age 11, her encounter with a Being of Great Light, and the complete love she felt for the first time in her young life. 
Then explore what it means to care, accept, even love ourselves and go on a deeply healing meditation with the Master Teacher himself - Jesus. Take this spiritual (not religious) journey and open to new levels of self-love, receiving all the care and kindness your body, mind and spirit can hold.

Mediumship Development with Teaching Demonstration
Oct. 7, 2018, 9:30am - 11:30am, $55
Recommended (not required) Pre-requisites: Meditation, Chakras, Development Circle, Soul Connection & Purpose

We are all mediums on one level or another.  Have you ever sensed the presence of a loved one who passed? Or out of the blue smelled her perfume or the odor of his pipe tobacco? Maybe you had a dream about them that was so vivid. Spirits will use our feelings, sense of smell, sight, taste, even our dreams to convey messages of love and closeness. 

When we die, we shift from a low vibration (physical matter) to a much higher vibration (spirit, light, pure energy). Mediums are people who naturally “tune in” to these higher vibrations. However, anyone can learn to receive information and begin to trust what they receive. Lois Anne’s often says, “If you are drawn to mediumship, then you can absolutely do it with guidance and practice.” During the workshop, Lois Anne will demonstrate mediumship while answering questions about how she ‘works’ with spirit.

Angels and Something Quite Joyful

Jan. 6, 2019, 9:30am - 11:30am, $35

So far, Lois Anne has provided information and practice opportunities for connecting with loved-ones, spirit and animal guides, as well as the ascended masters. It’s now time to complete for us to rest among the angels. Angels are extraordinary beings, the very extensions of Creator Source, personifying grace, power, and healing. In fact, your own guardian angels prays unceasingly for you from cradle to the afterlife. Spread your own wings and: 

  • Meet, name, and create a trusting relationship with your personal (guardian) angel; 
  • Receive guidance and insight on the 7 main Archangels and begin to call on them with confidence.
  • Experience a special connection with a group of Seraphim Angels. The Seraphim are called the ‘burning ones’ because they reside so close to Creator Source that they burn with the flame of unconditional love. 

In preparing for this development series, the Seraphim angels asked Lois Anne if she would gift each attendee with a special attunement sourced from the Lightarian Intitute for Global Human Transformation (where Lois Anne is an Instructor). This unique experience, in the form of a guided meditation, will infuse your energies with the purest qualities and patterns of Seraphim. Think of yourself as a beautiful musical instrument that can be ‘tuned’ to play a brand new arrangement or energy pattern. This pattern symbolizes the Seraphim love, inspiration and encouraging support for each of you.
