You Are Not Alone: Virtual Event with Sydney Sherman

Acclaimed Metaphysical Author, Sydney Sherman, shares her life experiences and book,  You Are Not Alone: Our Loved Ones Are Here…You’re Just Not Listening.  

The book goes beyond a simple biographical story of young woman frustrated with media sensationalism and misinformation about the afterlife. From a young age Sydney was aware of the scientific rational for Life after Death. Her grandfather, a Penobscot Indian, would tell her of his belief about Universal Life and Universal Energy.– that the two were one. And that at death we return back to our original form. Death is not an end. So Sydney began educating herself about the laws of nature and energy. She learned the biological balance and transition all living beings take throughout their life’s journey. And what she found was incredible. “You Are Not Alone” is part of her goal to provide the same clarity and understanding of the After Life that she uncovered and to help others know the truth. WE DO NOT DIE.

“You Are Not Alone” approaches the science of death or dying with a healthy dose of common sense and encourages rational skepticism.  The author looks at why and what we believe about the afterlife.  Her book draws distinctions between myths and the paranormal and recounts numerous experiences with energies. She offers hints to avoid falling prey to the frauds in the paranormal field.  The author educates readers on how they too can continue their relationship with their loved ones. With step- by –step advice, Sherman encourages people to think about the potential this information holds for all of us.  Sydney hopes readers will come to the same understanding —they are not gone; they are still very much here with us….we just need to start listening.
Sherman has intrigued audiences with her personal knowledge of energy. The scientific rationality she brings to the discussion of the afterlife has led to being featured in numerous news articles, magazines as well many appearances for TV and radio.

Please register and Zoom link will be emailed to you.

There are 38 spaces available.

VIRTUAL EVENT

Learn to code!  Girls Who Code is on a mission to close the gender gap in technology and to change the image of what a programmer looks like and does.  Girls in grades 5 -12 can join the club, facilitated by Patrice Gans.  Girls Who Code will meet virtually on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month.                                                                                                                              Girls Who Code is a free program and open to all interested girls in grades 5 & up. 

Patrice Gans is the founder and executive director of Random Hacks of Kindness Junior, (www.rhokjr.org) a non-profit organization that provides 4th – 8th grade students an opportunity to collaborate with computer science mentors and community subject matter experts to prototype innovative technical solutions for local non-profit organizations’ real-world challenges.
