Pinpoint sponsoring Kaubris workshop

HARTFORD — “Communions with the Angels of the Essenes” will be the topic of a one and one-half hour workshop on Sunday, Aug. 30, facilitated by Pam Kaubris and sponsored by the Pinpoint of Light Spiritualist Camp. The class will be held at the Hartford Town Hall, 1190 Main St.

The Essenes, a secluded group of Hebrew mystics known for their gifts as healers and herbalists, practiced an esoteric wisdom. They utilized energies of both invisible and visible universal powers presented through fourteen angels on their unique Tree of Life, which holds the secrets of immortality. This class will explore the Essenes esoteric practices of accumulating, storing and preserving what they termed “true knowledge.”

An “open” donation will be collected.
