It is with mixed emotions that the Pathways and Letter family announce the passing of
Rev. Deborah Ann Bourbon, R.N. On one hand, we are happy for her “graduation day”
as she liked to call it and reunion with her loved ones in Spirit - on another we mourn
our own loss of a beloved Friend, Teacher, Spiritual Advisor, and Mother.

Deborah transitioned into Spirit on October 20, 2013 after a 1-1/2 year cancer diagnosis. She is
survived by her son, Jon Letter II, daughter-in-law Kelly, cousins Dawn r & Richard,
her dog Heru, her Pathways family
and of course many of you - her friends and customers.

There will be a number of things that will be occurring to celebrate the life of Deborah and her
contributions she has made to the Pathways and St Louis metaphysical community over the years.
There are plans for an evening of chanting mantra, facilitated by Rev. Nita Turnage. There will be a
visitation and service for those who wish to come offer their respects and a few other things that are still
in the works.

In the meantime, we invite you to send a brief note or story about Deborah to the contact@pathwaysstl.
com email address and
reference “Memorial” in the subject line. You may leave your name or
simply don’t sign your note and your name will be withheld. We will be using these to create a string of
paper prayer flags. We plan to hang these messages at the visitation and service with the idea of
sending her off
with prayers and well wishes.

In lieu of flowers, we ask that you make a donation to one of Deborah’s favorite places, the
Missouri Botanical Garden in her name. Envelopes are available at the sales counter.

Please follow our Facebook page and website for the latest information on our plans.

We invite you to consider that
“Our Loss is Summerland’s Gain”.
So Mote it Be.
Attention Mantra teachers, students, and fellow chanters and friends.
Please come celebrate Deborah Bourbon's life Hindu style with Pujari Pat Murphy-Johnson and Rev.
Nita Turnage at
7:00 PM Pathways on October 31. Bring your bells malas and stories.

NEWS    PRESS RELEASE
DEBORAH’S CLASSES NOW ON DVD

Reverend Deborah Ann Bourbon, R.N. and Heru Productions, LLC, are pleased to announce the first release of one of Deborah’s
many teachings on DVD.  The first program to be offered is “2012: A Perspective and a Plan”.  These DVDs have been recorded
live in a classroom setting.  Also included with the DVD is additional bonus material and offers for FREE Audio CD or MP3 of the
entire presentation (making it more accessible for your productive life), and PDF files or a printed copy of the detailed notes and
handouts that she provides with the classes.  

2012 is so important that Deborah felt that this should be the first class to be offered on DVD.  There’s more to the 2012 window
than most people realize.  This is a look at Ancient Prophecies from around the world, as well as science and “fringe” science data.  
There’s information here that can be keys to our near future.  This material, when drawn together, can lead to some mind-opening
possibilities.  As we look at the unfolding changes, the more important questions arise: How do we deal with this? And where can we
go from here?  Join Deborah for a detailed look at the 2012 phenomenon.

This first release of “2012: A Perspective and a Plan”, is available for $34.99 plus tax and shipping & handling, where applicable.  
Please call Pathways, 314-842-0047 to order your copy today, or stop by the shop to purchase one.

Over 70 different individual classes have already been recorded and are in the process of being readied for sale.  Plans are to
release a minimum of one DVD a month.  There are also more offerings in the planning stages.  All announcements will be made on
Pathways website’s news page (www.pathwaysstl.com) as well as in Pathways monthly newsletter.  All DVDs are available
exclusively through Pathways.  Over the decades Deborah has taught these classes to literally thousands of people some of whom
have gone on to become prominent authors and leaders in their own right. At the promptings and requests of so many who can no
longer attend in person, and the urgings of others that this wealth of wisdom not be lost, she now brings these teachings to you.

Reviews:
“A gifted teacher, Rev. Bourbon has drawn on lifetimes of research and experience to assemble this amazing collection of
teachings.  The material is presented in a way that’s understandable to the novice, yet insightful and comprehensive enough to
engage even the advanced student of metaphysics.  This DVD series is a real spiritual treasure!”
Rev. Steve Doolittle, Presenter, Author

“Deborah’s expansive knowledge of metaphysics is encyclopedic.  She has a greater command of this vast range of material than
anyone I have ever met.”  Thomas Ashley-Farrand, Author, Revered Mantra Instructor
