Exploring Hypnosis and Past-Life Regression

Tuesday, June 21 | 6:00 p.m.

Do you ever wonder why you have a fear of something for no reason? Or why you might feel déjà vu in places that you have never visited? Or a pain in your body that has no origin? It could be that these experiences are not from your current past, but might be unresolved issues from a previous life’s past. This is the core precept in Past-Life Regression Therapy. On June 21st, Steven will be sharing his knowledge of Hypnotherapy and Past-Life Regression as well as offering a fun, one-of-a-kind group hypnosis experience where you will walk away with tools for enhancing your life

Steven Weiss-Smith has always been fascinated with people’s life stories. It’s why his journey has evolved from screenwriter to biographer to senior citizen advance planner to hypnotherapy certification in Past-Life Regression therapy. His unique background within the hypnotherapy world allows him to help his clients uncover and resolve life-long patterns and issues, improve memory, facilitate better sleep, and so much more. His tried and true techniques using the power of the breath make it easy for clients to achieve the desired results. Helping others is why he does what he does and brings him great joy.


The Braid: Uncovered

Wednesday, June 22 | 7:30 p.m.

Temple Isaiah has been such a great audience, The Braid is offering this show to Isaiah members for FREE! Click here and use the code uncoveredisaiah. It works on all show dates, including Zoom!

(If you already bought a ticket, use the code to bring a friend or family member for free.)

All of us have a part of ourselves we cover up — a part of our bodies, our personalities, or our very identity. But there are times when the hidden part of ourselves is suddenly and dramatically revealed, sometimes by choice, sometimes by circumstances thrust upon us. In Uncovered, a world premiere Salon theatre production from The Braid, actors turn ordinary people’s true moments of revelation into a collective and ultimately uplifting emotional journey. In person at Temple Isaiah Wed, June 22 at 7:30pm or live on Zoom June 20 and 26. Thanks to generous donations by Isaian Gail Solo and others, tickets are free!

****This show will feature brand-new stories by Temple Isaiah members David Chiu and Paulette Benson. David’s is about a racist encounter he and his parents faced on a cruise ship, and Paulette’s shows a different side of her father as he meets her pet dog.****
