with Paul Selig


In this channeled workshop you will be introduced to and attuned to the frequency of the Word, which Paul’s guides describe as “God in Action,” learn techniques for developing and sustaining higher levels of consciousness and move through the emotional and physical blocks that may be keeping you from manifesting your own higher nature.

Paul’s workshops are deeply transformative, the energy he works with is extremely palpable and participants will be supported in moving to the next level of their spiritual evolution.

Eddie Watkins Jr.

Born in Detroit, originally Eddie had a career as a session bass player. His hard driving bass licks have supported such R & B classic recordings as: Dan Hartman’s “I Can Dream About You”, The Pointer Sister’s “Automatic”, Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” to name a few. You will also hear him on soulful ballads such as Pattie Austin’s “Come to Me” and Billy Preston’s “With You I’m Born Again”.

Eddie has played on a number of gold and platinum albums, including movie sound tracks and television theme songs. While he made his name as a bass player and composer/producer, his singing talent is indescribable. Eddie toured for two years with the Jazz Crusaders.

In addition to playing bass he also plays guitar and piano. Eddie produces charts that have been called “impeccable”. In addition to producing and mastering his own music, Eddie has worked with other artists to provide professionally mixed sound tracks.
