Thank you to staff writer Sistina Giordano of The Citizen for the following press release (see complete article on

Auburn Public Theater is giving local readers an opportunity to gear up for the new year in a motivating and spiritual way.

On Friday (12/28/12), readers are encouraged to meet and greet a local author who understands the importance of bringing spiritual understanding into daily life.

Sheila Applegate, a clinical therapist and motivational speaker, will join theater Artistic Director Angela Daddabbo in talking about Applegate’s latest book, “Enchanted One: The Portal to Love.”

“I’ve known Sheila for some time and she really just has a wonderful spirit,” Daddabbo said. “We knew we wanted to do something and after looking over the calendar, we thought why not do something just before the new year — it’s perfect timing.”

Applegate will give a book talk, followed by a cocktail reception and book signing. Readers will also have the opportunity to meditate with Applegate on Friday night. The event is an opportunity for locals in the area to learn more about the author and what she does, Daddabbo said.

“She is so passionate about this, and we’re so excited to be giving people the opportunity to hear more about her and her new book,” Daddabbo added.

In “Enchanted One: The Portal to Love,” Applegate channels the spirit of Magdalene and Isis and combines teachings from both goddesses. The book is a way for readers to find love in every moment and to live in harmony with life. And as 2013 draws near, it’s a chance for readers to take in a message of love and to try to eliminate the struggle in their lives.

It’s also an opportunity to explore and enjoy the little moments in life, Daddabbo said, and a way to open one’s heart to receive love.

“Sheila has her own special way of guiding people, and we’re hoping that other people will enjoy what she’s all about,” she said. “She has an innate ability to change the way we think and show us how to channel our energy to help us process our emotion.”
