PK and Precognition: 15 hours. HCH Institute, Lafayette, CA. January 8, 15, 22, 29, February 5, 6:30 to 9:30 PM Pacific. You may attend in person or by phone! For more information, visit http://www.hypnotherapytraining.com/parapsych.cfm All students receive mp3 recordings of the course (and a past offering of the course), as well as additional video, audio and text materials.

MIND, MATTER AND TIME: How Our Psychic Abilities Affect the World Around Us, Pierce the Veil of Time and Help Create the Future. In this six week course, Loyd Auerbach will discuss two fascinating psychic abilities, Psychokinesis (mind over matter) and Precognition. In addition, he’ll delve into theories of Time and Space that connect Psychokinesis (PK) and Precognition.

In relation to PK, he’ll delve into: what parapsychologists and many others know today about PK, how it manifests itself, and how it hints at the broader interconnectedness between our consciousnesses and the Universe around us. There will be an experiential PK segment to this class, working with a method for PK developed by the late (great) science and science fiction writer Martin Caidin,, himself capable of PK.

As for Precognition, Auerbach will cover questions such as: Can anyone really predict the Future? How? Is there really a Future that can be predicted? What is Time? Can we change the Future? Why do so many psychics miss on their predictions? What about the premonitions of the average person? Parapsychologists have evidence that precognition exists. Research indicates that people can predict some future events, but not all. Sometimes precognition works well, and sometimes not.

Loyd Auerbach will discuss a variety of theories of Time and Timelines especially in the context of our apparent ability to predict the Future. He’ll cover the varied ways precognitive information pops up in our lives and some of the interesting research in Parapsychology. He’ll discuss conclusions reached by researchers about the nature of our ability to foretell the future.

Finally, there will be a focus on a conundrum in parapsychology: Do we predict the future or cause it to come into being with a little help from our PK? If the former, how do we use this information to shape our own personal Futures? If the latter, what does that say about our beliefs and expectations, and how all humanity consciously and unconsciously shapes the Future? Join us for what will be a mind bending experience.

Most people are interested in the paranormal phenomena we classify as ghostly: Apparitions, Hauntings and Poltergeists. Many are interested in understanding their own experiences and the experiences of others. Many are intensely interested in gaining the skills and knowledge necessary to be an effective investigator of such things: a Ghost Hunter.

This class is a guide to ghost hunting, and attendees will gain the basic skills and understanding for investigation of ghosts, poltergeists, haunted places and related psychic experiences. The class will include the models of what these things are (from the field of parapsychology), how the scientific and psychic approaches can mesh together, and how to assess a situation, investigate it, and resolve the case to the satisfaction of the people having the experiences (and hopefully to the satisfaction of the ghosts, when they’re involved). You will learn about: Apparitions, hauntings and poltergeists: differences and similarities.
What else can make a “ghost” the investigative process, from initial call to resolution; Psychics in ghost hunting; How the techniques of the professionals differ from those of the amateurs;
Naturally, the class will include some of Loyd Auerbach’s more exciting cases.
