Darkness… who wants to talk about darkness?
On Wednesday night, October 19, at Reno’s Center for Spiritual Living, Alchemist Theatre will be presenting, “Darkness.” In preparation, Jessica Levity created a wildly creative vlog with me, that you can access here if you have a facebook account. Love her! Don’t you? I will also add some comments below to add depth to the discussion.
I can hardly wait for the show! Our Sage Spirit Reiki Family will be offering Reiki pre-show, so feel free to come by early for a relaxing treat.
