Support Autism Awareness Month By Embracing Authenticity & Gratitude @ Seattle Unity Friday, April 14th

Support Autism Awareness Month By Embracing Authenticity & Gratitude: Join 10-Year-Old Author Muskan Virk & Aligned Education’s Micki O’Brien At Seattle Unity Friday Night, April 14th

Buffalo, NY – March 18, 2017 – What happens when you team up one of the world’s youngest inspirational authors with an inspired teacher, speaker and transformational education advocate? You get Embracing Authenticity & Gratitude, a special one-night event at Seattle Unity on Friday evening, April 14th (from 7-9PM PT), featuring the 10-year-old author of the book 365 Days of Gratitude, Muskan Virk (recently featured on Hay House Radio, as their youngest-ever guest), and CEO and Co-Founder of Aligned Education, Micki O’Brien, M.A.

In honor of Autism Awareness Month, the two have aligned to share their powerful healing messages of authenticity and gratitude with the “Emerald City,” to remind everyone of the importance of being yourself and focusing your energies on what and whom you intentionally have in your life. For when we do this, we become stronger, more loving and compassionate, and have even more to be grateful for.

“I am super excited to come to Seattle. And I am thrilled that Micki will be joining me at Seattle Unity. Our messages are rooted in love, and we are so happy to share this love with the city this April,” said Muskan.

“I am so excited and inspired to share the stage with Muskan! When I asked her how she wants people to feel when they first meet her, she said, ‘Like kindergarten, I want them to feel like they can just be themselves and play with me like kids do in kindergarten!’ I look forward to co-creating authentic, playful, gratitude-full time with Muskan, and everyone who attends!,” said Micki.

This two-hour event is designed for children, teens, and adults alike, and will include: a few simple interactive exercises, Muskan and Micki speaking both individually and together (during a Q&A session), plus an opportunity to meet Micki and Muskan at the end of the event, take pictures, and purchase your own personal copy of 365 Days of Gratitude. A portion of the proceeds from each copy of the book sold will go to Muskan’s foundation, Helping Hands, whose mission is to help homelessness in every country.

The Inspiring Journey To 365 Days Of Gratitude: Muskan came into this world as a miracle after her parents’ 16 years of marriage. At the young age of 6, Muskan learned about the injustice that Malala Yousafzai (the Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate) had gone through, and was devastated. She was propelled to take action and wanted to make a difference. She started by raising funds to donate to the Malala Fund and other local charities. However, despite the difference she was already making, Muskan didn’t want to stop there. She asked her mother incessantly about why there was so much gender inequality in such modern times. In order to shift her thoughts on this subject to a more positive state, her mother gave her a journal and encouraged her to write one thing every day that she was grateful for.

She wanted Muskan to focus on all the positive things in her life. As time passed, her mother forgot about the journal, until Muskan came to her later with a journal filled with all of the things she was grateful for and how she had transformed her negative thoughts about gender inequality into positive thoughts on how she can use her influence to make an impact.

From those beautiful daily gratitudes, 365 Days of Gratitude was born. Along with the inspiring stories of gratitude from best-selling authors Serena Dyer (the daughter of beloved spiritual teacher and New York Times best-selling author & inspirational speaker Dr. Wayne Dyer) and Jason Garner, 365 Days of Gratitude is filled with simple gratitudes of everyday life, which inspire and uplift, and remind all of the beauty and pleasures that surrounds us and makes us feel good.

Joining her in serving meals will be her Mother Meera, Father Kip, Former WWE Diva Serena Deeb and former Supervising Producer of the Oprah Winfrey Show LeGrande Green. In addition to serving meals, Muskan will be handing out hand-written notes to each person she serves. These notes will contain messages of encouragement.  Immediately following the meal service, Muskan will speak to our community in what has been titled A Night of Gratitude. She will talk about her book and how practicing gratitude can completely transform one’s life. Her goal is to inspire people in their time of need. Muskan is a catalyst for connection, helping people to embrace who they truly are. 365 Days of Gratitude provides people of all ages with hope, healing, inspiration, positivity, and a sense of knowing and feeling the foundation of what joy and happiness are based on: gratitude. 

This event will follow her book signing/Q&A at Mystic Journey in Venice, CA on Friday, December 9th. It’s not often that we find a young individual so determined to bring change to the world. We feel that having Muskan, her family and friends visit our facility will bring joy and hope to all of TMM’s guests.

When: Tuesday, June 7th, 2016
Time: 6-9PM PT

Michelle Gordon, the UK author of the Earth Angel Series is visiting the U.S. with her books and classes on Earth Angels. She is joining with Robert Tremblay, the author of Twenty Seconds to present A Night of Angels at Unity of Sedona. Michelle and Robert will be talking about their experiences with angels, with life after death and near-death encounters. Both have penned books around these experiences, in factual and fictional ways. After their talks, there will be a Q&A with the audience. Both Robert and Michelle will also have copies of their books available for anyone who would like a signed copy.

If you believe that you had an angel or angels helping you on your path or if you have ever had a near-death experience, you will love these two authors.

Robert Tremblay’s Bio:

Robert-Tremblay-225x300Twenty-Seconds is a true story of an ordinary man who traveled an extraordinary road from near death to healing after two terminal diagnoses, including a journey through Hospice and a near death experience (NDE) that changed everything at exactly the right time.  Author Robert Tremblay tells his humbling tale with truth and courage that will change the way you think about death, healing and love. Twenty-Seconds isn’t just another NDE story. It’s a story of remarkable survival and a love story that redefines hope. This story has been shared around the world, but the most remarkable parts were missing until now. Twenty-Seconds details the real reason the author survived and continues to survive every day with barely an immune system. It’s a testament to our magnificence as human beings. Amazing synchronicities throughout Twenty-Seconds highlight just how important it is to pay attention to the signs in life, perhaps just like the reason you picked up this book. How just a twenty-second moment can change everything.
