"I loved [Heidi's audio book]. The poems are so incredibly powerful -- it's amazing to me how the words are able to capture that depth of pure love, its essence and multidimensional qualities. The flute music behind it [provides] the perfect touch; a beautiful soundtrack that adds even more life to the words."

On Saturday Sept 10th, Jeffrey is offering a 1-day "Developing Mediumship" workshop (waiting list only).
About Jeffrey Marks: Jeffrey has vivid memories of going freely between this world and the Other Side from birth until the age of 5, and even has recollection of his life before being born. At age 15 he was reawakened to his spirit guides and the nature of spirituality. Shortly thereafter, he was trance channeling two of his guides, and experiencing recall of influential past lives. In the mid-year of 2000, after seeing the impact of the work of both John Edward and James Van Praagh, he realized the nature of his own path and began doing mediumship readings at psychic fairs and participating in psychic forums. He moved into doing personal readings, and in 2003 began giving group readings to as many as 30 people at a time. By the end of 2009, Jeffrey’s research into quantum mechanics and the published results of scientists studying the effects of consciousness and psi over the better course of a century gave him clearer insight into the nature of the phenomenon and an impetus to explore ever deeper.

CROSSING THE RUBICON: Love Poems Past the Point of No Return by Heidi Connolly
"Crossing the Rubicon refers to the event in 49 BC when Julius Caesar led his army across the Rubicon River, signifying a point of no return. The poetry in this book also signifies the point of no return in the relationship of a couple, one alive, and one passed into the next life. I found it both haunting and remarkable that Connolly first started writing her poems when bidden, and that she knows the words are coming from Randy. Randy, says Connolly, was ever the poet, and could be expected to compose a poem for a special occasion.
"Connolly lays the poems out strategically: first one of Randy’s, then one of hers (although her poems are helped into being by his spirit, she acknowledges) and together, the poems form a conversation of love that truly is eternal. It is hard to read because each writer wants to be with the other. Yet it is hard not to feel in Randy’s messages that he is telling her, albeit before he died, to keep on living, and that the transformation from one life to the other takes time, as it does for the caterpillar to turn into a butterfly.
"I loved what she had to say in In the Aftermath. It gave me much food for thought. I also loved the Happy Valentine’s Day wish from both authors, prompting me to realize that this is the perfect book for all writers and lovers. Heidi Connolly’s artwork is beautiful, matching the sentiments in the poetry."
