Ever since my own Inner Voices began to speak to me in 1980, I have wanted to have a group of like-minded individuals to discuss this phenomenon with. But, I never found one! Only last year, while I was writing my tell-all book on the subject: “Hearing Inner Voices: The Dead Pet Whisperer,” did I learn of the Hearing Voices Network in the United Kingdom. Still, these grassroots groups were few and far between and impossible for me to access.
Why not start one? Well, I move about…..but am planning to stay here in my first stop along the way around the world, for at least three months. Possibly six! That’s time enough to organize a group in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and to work for its continuation long after I leave town. Maybe, I could do this in many countries? Why not? Here’s my first press release for the meeting to be held here in two weeks:
EXTRA-SENSORY PERCEPTION ROUNDTABLE
A new, weekly discussion group about Extra-Sensory Perception will be initiated next Monday, December 7, at 5 p.m. in the Sala Quetzal Auditorium in the Biblioteca. Topics, such as Inner Hearing or Vision: Clairaudience or Clairvoyance, Sudden Knowings, Prophetic Dreams, Healing Powers, Heightened Senses of Smell or Touch and more, will all be on the table for discussion by those attending.
Open commentary by Experiencers of such metaphysical communication is sought and encouraged for the purpose of greater understanding, sharing and appreciation. Family and friends of people with these talents; as well as professionals, psychiatrists and counselors, who have observed that such phenomenon cannot be dismissed as mental illness, are urged to attend, as well.
This weekly roundtable will become the first chapter of the International Hearing Voices Network, (HVN), in Mexico. Over the past few decades, two-hundred chapters have formed in Europe, as well as seventy chapters in the United States. For more information on the subject, Googling will yield a great many aspects, for which the term, Hearing Voices, is simply a basket description.
San Miquel de Allende will lead the way for Mexico, beginning with this initial gathering. Care will be taken to make this a bi-lingual group through the use of simultaneous translation. Volunteers for group leadership and services are welcomed.
Founder of the local group is Linda J. Brown, author, blogger, and solo around-the-world traveler, who has written extensively about her own history of Inner Voice Hearing in books listed on Amazon.com and her websites. In San Miguel, she appears regularly on Open Mike Night at the Shelter Theater as “The Cosmic Psychic.”
Tickets may be purchased at the Biblioteca for 100 pesos per person.
