SEARCH Ending After 40 Years!

SEARCH of Rochester is dissolving and requests that you put your support into the many and diverse programs offered at Wind over Fire Healing Arts Center:

SEARCH of Rochester has now passed the 40 year mark. What an astonishing achievement for any organization, and especially for one born out of interest from a parapsychology class at the local junior college. Over the years SEARCH has brought many fabulous speakers to the local metaphysical community. We have offered workshops and even hosted psychic fairs. We achieved this during a time when admitting to an interest in metaphysics was not something most people did openly. SEARCH of Rochester was the only place you could experience metaphysical camaraderie for many years. Fortunately, times have certainly changed!

This announcement is about change. Within the southeastern Minnesota area there has been an increase in the number of holistic, spiritual, and paranormal interest groups and businesses. While we still are not reading about metaphysics on the front page of our paper, or even buried deep inside, the topic is becoming more widely accepted as people awaken to a new awareness of how the world really works.

Your SEARCH Board of Directors has worked hard to bring meaningful programs and offer a variety of changes to make the organization stronger. Over time the group has moved from being a membership-driven organization depending on volunteers to an organizing body depending on volunteers. The key to success is volunteers. People are busy. Volunteers are harder to find, leaving those who are still involved doing a lot of work. Yes, it is a labor of love for those who embrace metaphysics. But life goes on and other interests arise.

The SEARCH Board has voted unanimously to dissolve SEARCH and lend our support to Wind over Fire Healing Arts owned by Mary and John Laven. The description of their business is clearly consistent with the history and mission of SEARCH:

Wind over Fire Healing Arts Center is dedicated to the exploration of human consciousness and wholeness. It is a center for education, and if I may, a Mystery School on ancient wisdom and practices offering a bridge from the inner sacred to our ordinary realities! Wind over Fire Healing Arts Center is a place to be in good company amongst like-hearted spirits, reacquainting us with some old familiar knowledge, experiencing new thoughts and ideas, and old and new modalities to bring about self-awareness. My hope is to offer a variety of experiences to facilitate your personal journey here at this wellness emporium for mind, body and spirit.

The SEARCH Board would like to thank you for your presence and trust in SEARCH and encourages you to check out Wind over Fire, if you haven’t already. We wish you love, joy, and peace as you continue your spiritual journey.

Palm Reading by Nancy Anderson

palm reading 2013

Tuesday, May 14, 2013


1727 Walden Lane SW

Rochester, MN 55902

Palmistry is one of the oldest divining tools known. This talk will highlight the history of palmistry and discuss how your health can affect the lines on the hand and some practical exercises and visual charts of the hands. There will be a question and answer session afterwards.

About Nancy: I started on a self-discovery search in 2005, exploring many different divination tools. I began this journey seeking my intuitive gifts and how to use them. Palmistry grabbed my attention (as I have most likely been doing this for many lifetimes). The practice of palmistry can be traced back to Aristotle in 384 B.C.E. I prefer the modern day theories instead of those of Victorian day. The new age palmistry is a rediscovery of old knowledge that had been repressed due to societal scrutiny.

Palmistry is analyzing a person’s character, personality and destiny. As unique as every person is, their unique story to be told is written on their hands. I palm read using the scientific method and occasionally I get intuitive impressions while reading a hand. I’m still learning to exercise my intuitive muscle and am having fun on my journey. Through my enthusiasm for this tool, I hope to help as many people as possible to understand their truth and what lies within them through their hands using palmistry.

Channeling Our Guides by Susan Vivant

Definition of CHANNELER: a person who conveys thoughts or energy from a source believed to be outside the person’s body or conscious mind; specifically: one who speaks for nonphysical beings or spirits

Tuesday, Jan 8, 2013


We will be meeting in the Chapel for this meeting as another group needed our usual space.  Signs will be posted.  The Chapel is on the upper level at the east end of the building and is accessible by elevator. 

Sue was asked to provide us with a description of her talk.  Here is what she wrote:

I will call in the guides for the SEARCH group.  There are five guides.  I have asked one to be the main speaker but all will have input.  Leonardo will be the main guide to speak and give direction.  I ask they give me an outline of what will come through before we meet.  I have not received that yet.  Previous subjects have been how I got here spiritually, my personal journey; a discussion on the angelic realm and the different functions of the different angels;  a discussion on guides and where they are from and their functions.  At this moment Leonardo is telling me there will be information on this universe and how it interacts with other universes and the effects of that.

Kristin Fischer will be coming to tone and Patty Vivant will do the crystal bowl.  Kristin will do an introduction on the toning.  If you have an experience during the toning you will have an opportunity to share.

There will be time for questions; both personal and for the group.  The groups guides and your personal guides will all be present to answer as they wish.

I am looking forward to this experience –

Sue Vivant

Accessing the Akashic Records by Craig Lang


Tuesday, November 13, 2012
Search of Rochester 

Within the fabric of space-time is a memory of everything anyone has ever done, spoken, or even thought. Like the ultimate video recording, it is a record of every event in an eternal, infinite universe. Vedic scriptures call it the Akashic Records. In the Bible, it is the Book of Life. In modern physics, we can think of it as a quantum hologram in the zero-point field.

 In The Holographic Universe, Michael Talbot describes the zero-point field as the medium for the universal mind. In my view, it is a vast mind-field, accessible to anyone in meditation or hypnosis. We can take a metaphorical journey, following the trail of knowledge from question to answer to the next question and so on within the hall of records – a universe recorded in the archives.

 In this talk, we discuss the idea behind the Akashic Records, touching on modern physics and ancient metaphysics. We then go into a group meditation, travelling to the hall of doors and exploring the library. Join me in an interesting journey – In the Akashic Hall.

Craig Lang is a Certified Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner, researcher, writer and healer. He lives and works in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota – a northern suburb of Minneapolis. He works in service to humanity, doing both research and healing work in a variety of areas.

The Chakras, Transpersonal Chakras, and the Awakening of the Light Body

Presented by Christina Wilke-Burbach, PhD(c), MA, RMT, Rev


(see bio below)

Tuesday, September 11, 2012
Search of Rochester

To schedule a private session with Christina while she is in Rochester check out the services she will be offering by clicking here.

The Chakras are the main energy centers in our body. They are the openings for life energy to flow into and out of our aura. Their function is to vitalize the physical body and to bring about the development of our self-consciousness.  There are seven main Chakras. Each chakra is associated with certain physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual interactions.

The energy coming to us from the cosmos and universe is changing. New and potent energies of high frequency light are becoming increasingly available to us in the earth plane. As a result, the Transpersonal Chakras that exist above and below the physical body are awakening.

All of the Chakras are located within the Light Body. The Light Body is a structure of light from higher dimensions. Your Light Body is a newer energy body—a part of your aura that was not possible to awaken before these new, higher energies came to the earth plane. There are seven vibrational energy body centers that power the Light Body. Each one of these centers corresponds to a Chakra and lies on top of it, a level closer to your soul. Your Light Body opens doorways to even higher realms of light, such as the soul, Monad, and divine.

In this presentation, we will review the functions and themes of the main Chakras, Transpersonal Chakras, and the Light Body centers.  You will connect to and experience all of these energy centers. You will learn how to further awaken your Light Body and Transpersonal Chakras. We will discuss how the Chakras and Light Body can be used as vehicles of personal growth and spiritual transcendence.
