    Controlled Remote Viewing Classes Coming To The Eileen J. Garrett Library May 2 -4, 2014 Parapsychology Foundation will proudly host Controlled Remote Viewing Classes at the Eileen J. Garrett Library, 308 Front Street, Greenport, New York 10944 May 2-4, 2014. This three day course from 9 -5 will be taught by Lori Williams, Executive Director of Intuitive Specialists (http://www.intuitivespecialists.com ). Trained for 14 years under the tutelage of Lyn Buchanan (a longtime military CRV instructor and author of The Seventh Sense) Lori has worked professionally as a remote viewer in her own right and trained over 600 students from around the world. This comprehensive class ensures a high level of one-on-one instruction.

    So if you are interested in learning how to get the most out of your intuitive abilities consider joining the class to study the Controlled Remote Viewing methodology designed to open a doorway to the subconscious mind, allowing for intuitive information to flow easily. Developed by Stanford Research Institute and utilized by the U.S. military for twenty years, CRV allows the viewer to separate psychic perceptions from the imagination and pollution that often hinders intuitive processes.

    It goes without saying that we welcome the opportunity to greet you within the Foundation’s library on Long Island’s North Shore in Greenport accessible by Hampton Jitney Bus and Long Island Railroad. For more information call Lori Williams directly at 806 678-8582 with registration forms available at
