How to Deflect Negative Energy

This class will teach you how to recognize when negative energy has been sent your way either indirectly or intentionally.
Participants will be taught the indicators of this and will leave class with a few methods to deflect such energies.  In a guided
meditation you will be brought to an occasion in your life (a memory) where you received such energy and
you will be able to clear and release it.

Everyone is welcome to attend.

Please read this entire post for important information on church closings.

When we must cancel events at the church, you can find closing information on
this web site and on our Facebook page The First Spiritualist Church of Willimantic
(Please note that Facebook is not pushing the posts to everyone, so go to the page to check.)

Closing information is also submitted to WFSB but it's important to understand that
Channel 3 ONLY runs closings on the TV if there are major closings.

Closings are posted on the WFSB web site even when the closings are not shown on the TV.
If you don't see weather-related closings on Channel 3, please check

Sunday service closing is decided by 6pm on Saturday and will be posted to the web site, Facebook, and by 8pm.

Closings for other events, such as Monday evening circles, will be posted as soon as they are known, usually at least an hour
before the event is to begin. If you would like to receive a text message for circle closings, please be sure to give your name and
cell number to the church secretary, Sandy Labrecque, and specify which circle you wish to be contacted for.

We are unable to remotely change the message on the church phone so you will not find closing information there.
If you can't access the internet, please find a friend who does have internet access and ask them to pass
closing information to you. As a *last* resort, call 860-428-7569 within an hour of the start of the event for closing info.
