          RemoteViewingExperienceThere is evidence that humans can perceive the future, even before any of us get there. But how can we use that knowledge in practical ways? This online course and workshop introduces concepts necessary to understand what is going on with practical precognition, such as the nature of time; what we can actually “know” about the future; the role played by human intention; whether the future can be “changed”; and so on.

          We’ll discuss what some of the limitations are for precognition and how to deal with them as far as it is possible. Methods–both natural and learned–that allow us to exploit the process to gain concrete advantage of such advanced knowledge will be dissected and explored.

          Other topics for discussion include requirements for precognition to be useful; providing actionable information; documentation and journaling requirements; etc. And we will actually attempt some practical precognition exercises.


        • Art as Psi: A Portal to the Mysterious, Mystical, and Miraculous (4 weeks)
          (This course qualifies for some certificate programs)
          with Chantal Toporow, PhD
          Tuesday, August 10th - August 31st
          2:00pm - 4:00pm Eastern Time
          Tuition: $79 (Tuition Reduced!)

          NDEImage01This 4 week course is designed for anyone who wishes to gain a deeper understanding of how Art has given us a series of clues about the Psi human experience. We will review critical artworks going back to ancient times and we will wander across the Art history timeline to present for illumination. Who were these renegade artists who saw the creative potential of expressing what Psi meant to them, and who tried to capture the miraculous and mystical through various art media and across various cultural contexts? We will explore how artists have used art to convey the extraordinary, the unimaginable...

          As we critically examine various art and art forms, the biography of a few selected artists will be placed within the framework of their time and their own personal and societal/cultural expressions. This journey shall enable the course participants to gain a deeper appreciation of a more obscure artistic legacy that has been given to us over the millennia, and to develop the tools to understand Art's more profound impact on our understanding of Psi phenomena and, equally, the importance of the creative muses in the exploration of consciousness.
