Half-day Workshop
Sun, April 26, 1:00 PM-5:00 PM
Instructor: Robert Wood

In this workshop, Robert will teach us how to awaken and develop our intuition. He will show us how to utilize different modalities (such as stones, cards, pendulums, tea leaves, auras, and palmistry) to facilitate our abilities when we give intuitive readings to others. As we know, everyone has these intuitive or psychic abilities, but often, we don’t tap into them. Robert will help us to know our guides and know how to connect with them. He will explain and demonstrate how to channel our guides and our higher selves.
