StarVisions, a Westchester charity focused on spiritual enrichment, will offer four inspirational events for the holiday season. Programs on interfaith ministry, the afterlife and the 2018 “energy forecast,” as well as a winter solstice celebration, are scheduled for December.

On December 3, Rev. Dan Chesbro will teach a class in the Order of Melchizedek and lead an ordination ceremony for those who wish to serve as interfaith ministers. The program will be held from 1 to 4:30 p.m. at KatonahSpace, located at 44 Edgemont Road in Katonah.

“Participants will learn the teachings of Melchizedek, and the ethics and legalities of interfaith ministry will be reviewed,” says Anne Bentzen, a StarVisions council member. “They can decide at the end of the class whether they wish to be ordained. The ordination ceremony provides a powerful energy boost for each individual.” The class fee is $100, or $250 with ordination.

Popular spiritual medium, author and speaker Roland Comtois will present “Validating the Afterlife” on December 4, from 6 to 8 p.m., at the Bedford Presbyterian Church. “An entourage of grace enters the room during Roland’s programs as he connects people with loved ones who have crossed over,” Bentzen says. “They hear undeniable heaven-sent messages affirming the unbreakable bonds of love. His signature Purple Papers bring additional messages for participants.” The program fee is $80. Audience members must be 18 years old.

On December 11, from 7 to 9 p.m., channel Carol Essig will forecast the energies for the upcoming year. “Carol’s intuitive wisdom will shed light on what to expect and how to navigate the shifts and changes of 2018 while remaining grounded and centered during these evolutionary times,” Bentzen says. The program will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, located at 236 South Bedford Road in Mount Kisco. Admission is $35.

StarVisions will also host a free winter solstice celebration, including a ceremony of light and music, December 21, from 7 to 9 p.m., at KatonahSpace.

“The winter solstice celebrates the return of the light,” Bentzen says. “Scott Nelson will share Native American wisdom insights and lead a special drumming circle to embody the truths of the season.” Guests should bring their own drums, shakers or rattles.
