Visiting a past life could be more interesting than a casino opening

Forget the Venetian Macao's opening or the MasterCard Luxury Week series of fashion shows. For life coach Sonia Samtani and the holistic centre Illuminations, this is 'Discover Your Divinity' week.
Indian healers Yuvraj Kapadia and his wife Neeta Kapadia (above) - trained therapists in the fuzzy field of self-help and co-founders of the International Academy of Life - are conducting workshops and seminars. To introduce themselves to novices and doubters, they have two free sessions planned this week.
On Friday from 6pm to 9pm they will conduct an 'orientation' called Love With Wisdom, to help people understand the unique emotion called 'amour' which they say is free, abundant, and mankind's most powerful healing mechanism. Tomorrow between 1pm and 3pm Mrs Kapadia will also offer free chakra healing and diagnosis. All you have to do is call ahead.
'She's a homeopath,' Ms Samtani explained. 'In the workshop she will use a crystal pendulum and see where you have blockages. With the appropriate affirmations then the chakra will change. It's pretty amazing.'
Mr Kapadia's speciality is even more out there. 'He's an expert in past life aggression. He hypnotises you and takes you to your past life. Like if you've got a good job, marriage and happy life but you're still sad, then maybe it's something in your past life that needs to be healed.'
To have your chakra read or past lives unravelled, call 92387379. The location is at Art and Living, 9/F Delite Mansion, 1-3 Granville Road, Tsim Sha Tsui.
