1st Class –October 4th – Psychic Gifts and Scrying: Everyone is born with psychic gifts, though our upbringing and schooling often suppresses this ability.In this first class, Sophia will get to know you and help you discover what YOUR natural psychic talents are. Using ‘The Sophia Deck’ you will get a mini-reading from her and learn what your personal psychic gifts are and how to start taping into them. We will get to know each other and we will also learn and practice the art of scrying to start the “tuning in” of your psychic ability!
2nd Class- October 11th– Banishing: Banishing means spiritual cleansing. All of us need to make positive adjustments in our lives at times, and this often means ‘shedding our old skins’ and removing negative ideas, thoughts, energy and things that keep us from being the best we are. You will be amazed at how the banishing meditations, rituals and techniques taught in this class will help you to clear up your life!
3rd Class –October 18th – Activating the Chakras (Body Energy Centers): The centers of energy on our body, called ‘chakras’, are the keys to all energy- work and psychic abilities that we want to use in our lives. When these centers become underutilized, unbalanced or blocked, then physical, mental or spiritual problems may arise. By becoming psychically aware of these centers of light, and the ‘body of light’ that surrounds us, we can channel psychic energy to and through them and so accomplish almost anything we want to do.
4th Class –October 25th – Increasing Your Practical Psychic Skills and Abilities: In this class you will learn and practice specific and practical psychic exercises that you can use immediately to help yourself and others gain important information and positive results. You will learn a number of techniques to increase your psychic abilities. You will progress from basic psychic exercises to actually taking psychic readings from objects and giving readings to your peers. Please bring a personal object to class to practice with.
October 28th – Connecting with Your Pet on the Other Side: Dogs, it is said in many traditions, can cross back and forth through the liminal world between life and death and your spirit dog can be of great help to you in your spiritual work as a helping ally if you deepen this relationship with love, respect, and equality.
