Sacred Centers
Sacred Centers Annual Immersion 2018
Saturday, June 2, 2018 - 9:00am to Friday, June 8, 2018 - 5:00pm

Every year, during California’s glorious spring, Sacred Centers holds a very special event for students who want to come together in community and take their personal chakra studies to a deeper, more profound level.

We jokingly coin our Annual Immersions as advances rather than retreats. This is because it is intended not only for students enrolled in our Sacred Centers Certification Program, but also for everyday trainees of this journey we call life!

Our Immersions are designed as a way to advance your personal growth, wisdom, and expertise from any level, presenting the chance to lift you upward and onward toward greater gifts and finer explorations of Self.

JAMES LEDWITH: Hollywood and UFOs
Thursday, June 14, 2018 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

James Ledwith (UFOJim), has been a Ufologist for over 50 years, focusing on our diverse contacts with non-human intelligence. His investigative works include interviews with retired military and defense industry personnel.

His expansive research includes Crop Circles, Area 51, Roswell, UFO conferences and an on-going fact finding. For over a decade Jim taught UFO Classes through Adult Education and in Rotary Clubs domestically and abroad.

In 2011, Jim was instrumental in bringing the UFO/ET genre to the Sonoma International Film Festival, which became the first film festival showing documentaries of this subject matter.

"I believe this theme of using entertainment as a way to mold public opinion is becoming very important. Giving more exposure to the Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex plans to continue our war economy includes the creation of invading aliens to generate  fear and to make us authorize an even larger military budget to fight them in space. Because of this, Hollywood is a key battle ground and understanding the interests involved can influence the outcome." ~ Sergio Lub

He is a prolific author of dozens of books. His latest one is co-authored with Jennifer Iljas:  Sex and Love in the 21st Century - An Introduction to Sexology for Young People.
