DANBURY, CONN. – The Western Connecticut State University Institute for Holistic Health Studies (IHHS) will present “Soul Surfing Through our Past Lives: Hypnosis and Past Life Regression Therapy” at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 5, 2018, at Ives Concert Hall in White Hall on the university’s Midtown campus, 181 White St. in Danbury. Tickets are $20; WCSU students get in for free with a school ID.

Saundra Cindy Blum is a certified hypnotherapist, past life regression therapist and trainer, Reiki practitioner and international lecturer. She is also the co-founder of the Katonah Study Group for Integrative Medicine and a member of the Advisory Board for the IHHS and Patient Advisory Board for Northern Westchester Hospital.

“These are intense times that can feel like chaos, confusion, transition and transformation,” Blum said. “What always felt known and safe feels very different right now. What is it that we need to know to do? How can we feel more grounded and safe?”

She will deliver the talk and share insights from our past that can help us continue to move forward. As part of this presentation, the audience will get an opportunity to sample a past life regression, followed by a book signing.

In 2012, Blum published her first book, “Footsteps through the Sands of Time – Past Life Dramas, Present Life Lessons.” Her new book “The Bible Stories Through the Eyes of Past Life Progression” is coming out soon.

IHHS Director Christel Autuori aims to provide the WCSU community with programs and presentations reflecting holistic and integrative approaches to health and wellness.

“This approach encompasses and intertwines the best of conventional Western medicine with the best of the non-Western and complementary healing modalities,” said Autuori. “Hypnosis and past life regression are two techniques that have been utilized by psychotherapists for several years that are widely accepted in the professional community as well as embraced by the public.”

Our vision: To be widely recognized as a premier public university with outstanding teachers and scholars who prepare students to contribute to the world in a meaningful way.
