Westchester Medical Intuitive and Energy Healer Bernadette Bloom will be featured on Soul Talk with Patty Malek on Tuesday January 16th at 7pm EST. Tune in to learn about how Esoteric Healing can create a spiritual path to higher consciousness that strengthens your soul connection.
On this call Bernadette will discuss:
What the antahkarana /rainbow bridge is
How to build it to the soul and then to the Monadic plane.
Meditation study and service are the keys to discovering this mystical experience.
A Q&A session will follow so listeners will be able to ask questions. Whether it’s about getting healthier, healing an emotional trauma, or the esoteric significance of dis-ease, Bernadette will cover it all.
Registration for the show is FREE! You can sign up at https://www.soullifetimes.com/soul-talk-show.html
Everyone who registers will have access to a very Special Offer Bernadette created which includes a 8 channeled teaching/series from myself and the Tibetan Djwhal Khul and a discounted personal healing session for a limited time only.

Beth Am will fill the sanctuary with our tots for “Welcoming Shabbat.” Filled with movement, music, and ruach (spirit), Rabbi Robbie and Rebbetzin Ellen help bring in the Shabbat with that special “Shabbat Spirit” followed by a Shabbat dinner.

Hoff-Barthelson Music School Hosts Early Childhood Open House
Join in the fun of a music and movement class, and learn about the School’s offerings
Enrolling now for Spring: New Offerings include Beginning Ukulele and Petite Chorus
Join in the fun of a music and movement class at our Early Childhood Open House on Saturday, January 20! Learn about the Schools offerings including our new Beginning Ukulele class, Petite Chorus and Saturday Songs, a class where children ages 3 and 4 explore musical concepts. (Snow date: January 27, 2018). Children ages 3 months to 5 years and their adults are invited to participate in a class at 12:30 pm, followed by a brief Q & A with faculty, and a reception during which you can socialize with other families.
Exercises and games during classes involve singing, moving and improvising; using small percussion instruments to promote inner hearing and rhythmic sensitivity; and working with a variety of whimsical materials to inspire the imagination. Through these activities, our talented faculty members guide young students to develop many of the skills involved in music-making and a joyful bond grows between children and their adults as they listen, sing and move together with the music.
About the Early Childhood Program:
Hoff-Barthelson’s Early Childhood Program is grounded in Dalcroze Eurhythmics – a method of teaching that pairs music and movement to catalyze the development of children’s minds and bodies. Even the very youngest children develop focus, spatial awareness, gross motor skills, social skills, and the ability to work with others – all while having fun! Classes are available for parents/caregivers with their children as well as in a “drop-off” format for children who enjoy attending music class independently. Classes are taught by certified teachers and utilize live music. For families interested in taking the first steps in learning to play an instrument, Little Pipers Recorder Classes, Suzuki Pre-Twinklers and Beginning Ukulele are hands-on classes for older threes and up.
“The classes, grouped by age, are dynamic and interactive,” said Laura Barnet, Early Childhood Music Specialist at Hoff-Barthelson. “Children love music. It is something that they can participate in at a young age; it fosters their complete development.”
New for 2018:
New classes beginning in January 2018 include Beginning Ukulele and Petite Chorus, both for grades K-2 and Saturday Songs, a class where children ages 3 and 4 explore musical concepts. These fun, interactive and informative new classes are a great way to introduce young children to musical instruction in a social setting with other children of similar ages, and is the perfect first step to private lesson instruction as children get older.
