Workshops & Seminars

Hackettstown, NJ

Summer 2005
Every Wednesday 7-8pm & 8-9pm

Spiritual Awareness 2005 was produced by Paladin Music & Entertainment, Inc. in conjunction with Inspirations of Hackettstown, NJ.* The workshops and seminars was offered to provide educational and thought provoking programs to help broaden and inspire the horizons of human intellect as well as spiritual and self-awareness.

The seminars were very unique. So unique, that they caused a bit of controversy with some of the conservative locals! Never-the-less, the well attended weekly events continued and everyone left a bit more enlightened.

Many thanks to the particpants for their support!
