These things are responsible for much of the anxiety and depression we suffer from today, but you *can* fight back, ground yourself, and fortify your personal boundaries! In this interactive workshop you will learn how to protect yourself from many forms of psychic attack, as well as how to psychically generate and retain power within yourself… whether dealing with other people or with negative spiritual entities. Using techniques ranging from visualization to folk magic practices to martial arts, professional psychic Dina LeDuke will show you the way of the Spiritual Warrior in how to effectively ground, center, and shield. Previous experience is not required… just bring an open mind, and a willingness to stand up for yourself!
