THE GODDESS OF SERENE – SOUNDS By DOREEN D. RHODES
A Certified and Licensed Vibrational Sound Therapist Practitioner
Did you know that everything in the Universe is a state of vibration? Your organs down to your bones and cells have a vibrational Frequency.
In life, our body, mind, soul, and spirit can be out of harmony at times which causes your vibratory frequency to be significantly low. Even your thoughts, feelings, and emotions exist on a vibratory energetic level. This is one of the reasons that dis-ease, stress, and at times chronic illness and other imbalances surface.
At this event, Doreen a Vibrational Sound Therapist will show you the technique of clearing your energy blocks in your auras (Chakras) and body.

Her song called “We’ve Got to Break the Cycle” speaks directly to women as it relates to the many types of abuse females have had to endure (incest, rape, and H.T.). Chere here to check out the song in advance of this event and support her artistry.

Girls Against Human Trafficking a non-profit organization located in Banjul, Gambia will participate in this event to garner the support and uplifting needed amongst the women in West Africa. Fatou Jagne, President of this non-profit says, “We can’t do it alone! We can not fix this problem alone! Every female that is a member (100 girls) of my nonprofit was kidnapped and trafficked, abused, raped, and tortured. This madness called sex and human trafficking must STOP against women. If we come together we can make a huge impact.”
What DOES NOT happen in Gambia is:
- Prevention of trafficking in persons;
- Protection of victims of human trafficking;
- Prosecution of trafficking offenders;
We will welcome the Girls Against Human Trafficking in Gambia to this important conversation and we will explore ways to make an impact in the mission to save females of all cultures from being human trafficked. – Beverly Chandran
FYI: The Gambia, country in western Africa situated on the Atlantic coast and surrounded by the neighboring country of Senegal.
