In 2020 Southern Lights Centre hosted:

If you thought the Deva kingdom was only about nature spirits and their angelic overseers, you’re in for some surprises. Join Findhorn Press author, Jacquelyn E. Lane for a workshop that goes way beyond faerie!

DEVA introduces a framework that helps us make better sense of our world, ourselves and our challenges and shows how understanding our involvement with the Deva kingdom points to a realisation of Pan Consciousness—how and why everything is interconnected. There will be true (faery) stories for light brain relief.

DEVA was shortlisted for the 2019 Ashton Wylie unpublished manuscript award.
