Psychic Development

This article was written by Donald Michael Kraig on May 29, 2002

Classes called "Psychic Development Classes" have been popular for years, and indications are that they will remain so for years to come. People simply want to develop and increase their psychic abilities.

Classes in Psychic Development should include, but not be limited to the following:
