Soul Writing

Soul Writing is a written form of meditation. It is a transformational tool that gives the writer a perspective that otherwise would have eluded him/her when in a conscious state. It is a method of communication that accesses information from a higher source. Some people believe that source is God. Others credit their guardian angels or spirit guides, while still others believe it is their higher self or subconscious mind.

Edgar Cayce, the most renowned psychic of the 20th century, said it is everyone’s birthright to communicate with Source and listen to that still, small voice coming from within one’s soul—a voice that guides and inspires us to find the answers that lie within. That is the essence of Soul Writing.

Presenters: Joanne DiMaggio

Saving Hearts One Mile at a Time
1-Mile/5K Run/Walk Honoring Jaleel Freeman

We are honoring the memory of Jaleel Freeman with a 1-mile/5K run and walk. The Jaleel Freeman Foundation partners with a local organization that provides comprehensive heart evaluations for children and adults ages 8 to 25. Athletic Testing Solutions has performed more than 5,000 heart checks through local schools. ATS has identified many children who had serious heart defects that would otherwise go undetected. This event helps raise money for those screenings and early detection for congenital heart defects.

This event is held in honor of Jaleel Freeman, who passed away March 4, 2015, from cardiac arrest. Jaleel was a senior at Raymore-Peculiar High School and a member of the track team, when he collapsed at practice and wasn’t able to be resuscitated. This run is to honor his memory.

Presenter: Adraine Freeman
