"The Miracle of Vibrational Sound Healing"
With Lisa Alexander

The New Hope Metaphysical Society will be meeting on Wednesday, May 24 at 7:30 PM at Pebble Hill Church, 320 Edison-Furlong Rd., Doylestown, Pa. 18901. Lisa Alexander, Meditation teacher and Certified Master Sound Therapist, will be the speaker for the evening. Ms. Alexander, Show More...who comes from Nazareth, Pa., will be presenting a unique program for the audience on sound healing and vibrational therapy.

Lisa Alexander is the creator, practitioner and teacher of the Alexander Method of Vibrational Sound & Energy Therapy™. This healing 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. During her presentation, she will explain and demonstrate how this modality implements the frequencies of uniquely-designed tuning forks, calibrated to the frequencies of ancient Solfeggio tones which release blocked chi (energy) in the body as well as stimulate the flow of energy throughout the body. Additionally, the vibrational rate of the energy field of the body is cleared, balanced, elevated and strengthened by resonating to these frequencies.

Experience the miracle of vibrational healing yourself as Lisa will give demonstrations of her sound therapy with the Tuning forks, explain her healing technique and how she came by it and guide the audience through an energy (chakra) clearing meditation. She will also leave time for questions and answers and will bring some of her healing meditation CD's and products for sale.

Admission to the program is $15 at the door or $10 online. Refreshments will be available throughout the evening. Off street parking is available. For more information and to pre-register online, go to www.spiritsivison.com/. ...Show Less

A new exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International shares the stories of Jewish communities in China over millennia. These stories intrigued Pearl S. Buck and her husband Richard Walsh so much that each explored them in their published works. Ms. Buck wrote the novel "Peony" and the play "Flight into China" on the subject. Mr. Walsh included scholarly articles Show More...about the topic in his publication, "Asia" magazine.

Jews settled in China as tradespeople on the silk road. They had strong communities and became part of society. One of the largest communities was in K'aifeng. A stele (stone tablet) commemorates the construction of a synagogue there in 1163, but by the 1850s there were only remnants of the building standing and most families had assimilated.

Part of the exhibit at Pearl S. Buck International is a retelling, through words and photos, of one Jewish family's flight from Nazi Germany into China. Packed in the luggage was a copy of "The Good Earth" which descendants presume was carried so far in order to become part of a lending library established during their stay in China.


Exhibit Hours:
Mon-Fri 8:30 to 5:00
Saturday 10:30 to 3:00
Sunday 12:30 to 3:00
