  6. Tanis Helliwell will be speaking about her new book, “Hybrids: So you think you are human”, on Thursday, Sept. 17, 7:30-9 pm at 6812 Alberni Street, Powell River.
    -Refreshments served, FREE to attend.

    This is Tanis’ seventh book, building on the ideas introduced in her previous book, “Summer with the Leprechauns”, which has sold over 50,000 copies worldwide and has been translated into 7 languages. Discover your hybrid life in this groundbreaking new book!

    Myths, religions and archeological discoveries around the world discuss the presence of intelligent non-human beings who have interbred with humans creating hybrids. Tanis Helliwell offers convincing evidence about the existence of 22 different human-hybrids (elementals, angels, dolphins, giants, dragons, centaurs, pan and others).

    If you answer “yes” to these statements, “Hybrids: So you think you are human” will be of special interest to you:
    -I often feel I don’t fit in
    -I am hypersensitive to violence
    -I am deeply committed to helping the Earth
    -I would describe myself as an independent thinker
    -I follow my own inner guidance about rightness, even if it goes against the norm

    Tanis Helliwell, M.Ed., is the founder of the International Institute for Transformation (IIT). She has experienced and worked with elementals, angels, and master teachers since childhood, and has worked with hybrids in her psychotherapy practice. Tanis is the author of six previous books: Summer with the Leprechauns, Pilgrimage with the Leprechauns, Manifest Your Soul’s Purpose, Embraced by Love, Take Your Soul to Work, and Decoding Your Destiny. She lives in Powell River.

    See you at the book launch!
