Past Life Regression


with Hugh Sadlier, M. Ed., BCH

Calendar Feb 26, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 2 weeks

Hypnosis can open the door to the realm of life-before-this-life. You may simply return to a past life and re-experience it in full detail. You could also change the impact of past-life karma that may have been adversely affecting you in your current life. Those energies can be changed, released, returned and replaced with positives, enabling you to heal in this life. Bring a mat and/or pillow for extra comfort.

Hugh Sadlier, practicing hypnotherapy for 26 years, has worked with more than 2700 people on more than 280 separate issues, including weight management & eating disorders. He practices at the IHCM in Portland.
