GEMINI by Carol Cassella – 352 pages
A stranger’s life hangs in the balance. What if you had the power to decide if she lives or dies?
Dr. Charlotte Reese works in the intensive care unit of Seattle’s Beacon Hospital, tending to patients with the most life-threatening illnesses and injuries. Her job is to battle death — to monitor erratic heartbeats, worry over low oxygen levels, defend against infection and demise. One night a Jane Doe is transferred to her care from a rural hospital on the Olympic Peninsula. This unidentified patient remains unconscious, the victim of a hit and run. As Charlotte and her team struggle to stabilize her, the police search for the driver who fled the scene.
Days pass, Jane’s condition worsens, and her identity remains a mystery. As Charlotte finds herself making increasingly complicated medical decisions that will tie her forever to Jane’s fate, her usual professional distance evaporates. She’s plagued by questions: Who is Jane Doe? Why will no one claim her? Who should decide her fate if she doesn’t regain consciousness — and when? Perhaps most troubling, Charlotte wonders if a life locked in a coma is a life worth living.
Enlisting the help of her boyfriend, Eric, a science journalist, Charlotte impulsively sets out to uncover Jane Doe’s past. But the closer they get to the truth, the more their relationship is put to the test. It is only when they open their hearts to their own feelings toward each other — and toward life itself — that Charlotte and Eric will unlock Jane Doe’s shocking secret, and prepare themselves for a miracle.
Filled with intricate medical detail and set in the breathtaking Pacific Northwest, Gemini is a riveting and heartbreaking novel of moral complexity and emotional depth.

Our March, May, June, July, August, September, October, December & January sessions all sold out. Reserve your spot ASAP as this sells out quickly.
This is a unique gallery reading! We keep these to a small size with a limited number of participants. Unlike big settings where only a few people have an opportunity to interact with the presenter, in our gallery readings with Joe, each person has an opportunity to speak with Joe. This is NOT a guarantee that a certain crossed-over loved one will enter the room. However, from the past sessions, Joe has been able to deliver messages to the participants who gathered.
Joe Perreta is a psychic medium who specializes in communicating with those who have crossed over. Joe’s affinity with spirit started at a very young age, giving him a unique connection to and an intrinsic understanding of the spirit world. Joe embraced his gifts early in life to find that he is what is called a natural born medium. Since then, he has brought unique and specific healing messages to countless men and women all over Long Island and NYC.
In a gallery reading, you will be witnessing the amazing way that spirit can use a medium to heal those here in the physical world. Everyone can get messages, but that all depends on what spirit decides they need to say and to who! Expect you will hear exactly what you need to at that moment in time. Joseph asks that you come with an open heart and mind with the expectation that you will witness the beautiful healing power of spirit communication.
Joe’s March, May, June, July, August and September sessions sold out quickly. Reserve your spot ASAP as space is very limited to this event.
Price: $42 per person including delicious, homemade snacks.

Yin Yoga (Dona) : Yin Yoga is a more meditative yoga style. The term “yin yoga” comes from the Taoist tradition. Yin is about finding stillness and cooling the body, where as Yang relates to movement, often repetitive movement, creating heat in the body. There is not a great need for a lot of postures in the Yin Yoga practice. Emphasis is placed on a few basic postures which are held for longer periods of time. In Yin Practice, there is a more conscientious attention to breath and the sensations in the body. Slow, simple yin yoga is the class to choose if you want to calm the mind, stretch the body, and promote flexibility. The yin practice is a great compliment to a yang practice or active lifestyle. We need both to come into balance and maintain optimum health and wellness. (Wednesdays at 10:45 AM).
