10 AM: Special Guest Homilist, Nettie Jean Scarzafava

41-45 Dietz St. Oneonta, downstairs "The Lotus Center"

“Are you following your calling?” Two metaphysical centers sprang up at around the same time in Oneonta- the The Scarzafava SOL (Sweetness of Life) Center, right across the parking lot from the Institute for Spiritual Development. Nettie Jean, the founder of the SOL Center, and past Judge in the Town of Oneonta and past Otsego County, Family, and Surrogate Court Judge, will tell a story about our two centers, and how they are positioned together in a dance of the raising of consciousness and the Movement of Becoming in Oneonta.

Nettie Jean had a Spiritual Awakening in 1984, which prompted her attempt to understand her experience through studying the laws of physics and the books of the world’s religions. Her search landed her in a sweatlodge and it was there that all worlds converged. She has walked and learned from the Lodge for 28 years and is an authorized Ceremonial Leader and a Dancer in Indigenous Ceremonies. She is a Reiki Master, and LightBody EnergyWorker. She has studied with the Shamans of many lands and with Teachers who are known as Christian Mystics. She has been Initiated and received Attunements from various traditions, yet the thread that continues to stitch her forward, is the joy and the terror inside herself, of consciously choosing to let go Spirits Way.
