Psyching Up for Everyday Life

$20

with Bette Freedson

Calendar Sep 19, 2018 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Have you ever considered that YOU are psychic? If that sounds too far out, consider this: Everyone has intuitive ability that can be developed and drawn on for use in everyday life. In reality gaining access to your own psychic ability is as simple as sitting in a rocking chair and staring off into space! Join Bette as you discover that what seems to be a mysterious and complex gift is really rather ordinary. All you have to do is to learn to quiet the mind, relax doing something you enjoy - or doing nothing at all - and let your mind float free. Stilling the mind in such a way as to block out interference from the busyness of the outer world is the first step in becoming your own personal psychic.
