He then goes on to demonstrate its vision; the idea that creation is the transfigured image of the creator, with Heaven and Earth inextricably linked in that idea of creation. Anthony goes on to refer to ancient scripts and writings that demonstrate the depth of the Celtic spiritual tradition.

Title: Soul Alignment
Speaker: Ocean Whitehawk

Then there is the world of energy, matrix upon matrix of energetic pattern, without time or form. In both worlds there is only consequence no right or wrong and we must remember that we are spiritual beings living out a physical experience rather than being physical beings having a spiritual experience every now and again. This lecture asks some fundamental questions e.g. why are we here? What actually matters in our lives? What is our plan? Ocean encourages us to think in terms the energy of things manifested in form rather than form itself
