March 2010 Program

“Awaken to Higher Brain Living”
Dr. Ladd Carlston
Friday, March 19th 7:30 p.m.
Discover how to tap into the highest most evolved part of your brain with a cutting edge personal development process called H.E.A.R.T. (Human Emergence And Rapid Transformation). The higher brain (the prefrontal cortex) is virtually untapped – we use only about 5% of it on average. Through the H.E.A.R.T. technique, the higher brain energizes, stress releases and this frees up more energy so a person can live with more purpose, passion and authenticity. During this presentation and demonstration you will learn how to transform the teachings from the book The Secret, as well as what Deepak Chopra and Eckhart Tolle have shared about evolving into the higher brain.

Dr. Ladd Carlston is a chiropractor and worked as an intern at the Shanghai cancer recovery school in Shanghai, China, and hands on study of energy medicine practices in remote areas of China. He has taught healing techniques and personal development methods across the country. Join us to learn how to activate your brain to feel more joy, clarity and purpose in your life.

APRIL 2010

April 2010 Program

“Current Research in Energy Medicine”
Dr. Melinda Connor
Friday, April 9th 7:30 p.m.
This program is a must for any person involved in energy healing. If you want to understand University-validated science that supports healing work, this is the program to attend.

Melinda Connor, Ph.D. is a leading world researcher on energy and healing. She will present an overview of 10 studies that demonstrate significance and what the energy medicine practitioner is actually doing. Dr. Connor believes that all things physical are created by consciousness and in particular the human body is a precipitate of consciousness. As such, a distortion in consciousness eventually results in disharmony in the body. Dr. Connor describes harmonizing as connecting to your “self” throughout the body. Anywhere in your personal experience you are not connected to yourself, she believes it results in a distortion in the energy fields which surround & penetrate through the body.

Human thought produces many things including electrical charge; those electrical charges can produce changes in brain and body chemistry. Human actions can do the same.

Melinda Connor, Ph.D. is an experienced healer and trained research scientist, working under such notables as Dr. Andrew Weil and Dr. Iris Bell. She received her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at California Coast University, and in addition a one year Neuropsychology rotation and 3 years Post Doctoral Fellowship at the University of Arizona. Dr. Connor is a born clairvoyant, a medical intuitive, an ordained Buddhist Priest, has studied 22 styles of energy work and has developed a way of “flowing” the body which she calls Resonance Modulation. It is a way of inviting transformation and creating harmony between the body and soul.

Dr. Connor is the author of two books See Auras and Professional Practice for the Energy Medicine Practitioner.

Dr. Connor will be giving a workshop April 10 “See Auras” and

MAY 2010

May 2010 Program

“Reunions: Visionary Encounters With Departed Loved Ones”
Dr. Raymond Moody
Friday, May 21st 7:30 p.m.
PSI Presents a Very Special Program With Dr. Raymond Moody

Dr. Raymond Moody is the leading authority on the “near-death experience,” (NDE) a phrase he coined in the late seventies. He is the best-selling author of 11 books, including Life After Life and Reunions. His new book Glimpses of Eternity will be out this fall. Dr. Moody has appeared three times on Oprah and on hundreds of other television programs.

A replay of significant events from your life may pass before your eyes — the process only takes a few seconds, but time seems to slow for you during this progression. Next, you may have an out-of-body experience & see emergency workers or medical personnel working on your body. Then you may see a brilliant, warm, white light & find yourself moving through a dark tunnel toward that bright light. You may even be greeted by family members & friends who have passed on before you. But in a second, the whole transcendental event can end, & you wake up in a strange place, such as a hospital bed. Your NDE is over — your physical body survived.

For many, a NDE is a life-altering event. This incredibly personal and profound experience proves to the person who went through it that there is in fact life after death. The rest of us can only trust the person’s account of the experience. To have a similar experience, we would need to be on the brink of death — or would we?

How can regular people have this experience of peering over to the “other side” without actually knocking on death’s door? To answer this question, Dr. Moody took the ancient Greek technique of “mirror gazing” and created the Psychomanteum Chamber. A visitor to his Psychomanteum Chamber often experiences contact with departed loved ones. Dr. Moody states that people who have had a NDE and who also went through his device say the experience of seeing departed loved ones in the chamber was just like the visions from their own NDE.

Dr. Moody is a psychiatrist and received a M.D. from the Medical College of Georgia in 1976, and a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Virginia in 1969. He received the World Humanitarian Award in Denmark. Bring your favorite book by Dr. Moody for a book signing following the program. Books will also be available for purchase. For more information, please go to

2010 PSI Patrons are invited to join Dr. Moody for dinner on Thursday, May 20 at 6:30 p.m. Each Patron is responsible for the price of their own meal. Please RSVP to Pat DeLapp for restaurant details by May 13 at 913.492.3456.

JULY 2010

July 2010 Program

“The Akashic Records”
With Special Guest Linda Howe
Thursday, July 15th 7:30 p.m.
The Akashic Records or “The Book of Life” can be equated to the universe’s super computer system. It is this system that acts as the central storehouse of all information for every individual who has ever lived upon the earth. More than just a reservoir of events, the Akashic Records contain a vibrational record of each individual soul’s journey, which includes every intent, thought, word, feeling and deed that has ever occurred since the dawn of creation.

Edgar Cayce, the founder of A.R.E., used the Akashic Records as a source for his readings. Once given the Akashic Record, Cayce had the ability to select the information which would be the most capable of assisting the individual at the time in his/her life.

Linda Howe is the founder and director of the Center for Akashic Studies. She is the leading expert in the field of Akashic Studies and specializes in the use of the Akashic Records for personal empowerment and consciousness development. She is the author of How to Read the Akashic Records and a six-CD teaching set which provide instructions for learning how to use this rich spiritual treasury of information. Every person is entitled to access their own Akashic Records. Accessing the records can be extremely valuable. According to Linda, “Your soul’s essence and expression, potentials and purposes can be seen. The ways in which you can actually manifest your divine potential are available.”

Linda will be offering personal Akashic Record readings on Friday, July 16. To schedule your consultation, please send an email to Due to some unforeseen circumstances, Linda will not be able to offer her weekend workshop. Linda’s book will be available for purchase and a book signing will follow the program. Join us for an evening of illumination and inspiration. For more information, please visit Linda’s website at

August 2010 Program

“Your Intuition Into Psychic Ability”
With Patricia Sneed
Friday, August 6th 7:30 p.m.
Intuition is a natural function of the brain. Educated intuition becomes psychic ability. Like all things we learn, the more we use our abilities, the more skillful we become at using them. Listening to your intuition is the essence of art and creativity and soulful living. Intuition communicates with us through symbols, feelings and emotions.

We use it as children and as we grow older and our rational and reasonable mind develops, we lose touch with our intuition. We ignore it, cast it aside and forget about it. But like an out-of-shape muscle, intuition can be strengthened and exercised back into shape. By following through on your everyday hunches and gut feelings, you are actually taking test drives, virtually honing in on your intuitive skills.

In this lecture, Patricia will explain how the brain functions as well as how to become aware of and develop your abilities to use at will. You will experience a guided meditation that if used repeatedly will bring your intuition to a more heightened sense in your everyday life. Patricia will select 4 volunteers from the audience to demonstrate how easy and natural it is to use your psychic abilities.

Patricia is a metaphysical consultant and healer. She is also a premier teacher of psychic development in the Kansas City area where many of her students have gone on to become professional psychics. Since 1982, she has assisted people with their everyday experiences. She assists people bringing clarity and wisdom; laced with spirituality to the everyday challenges of life.

You may have heard her on various radio and television broadcasts. She is a co-host of The Psychic Talk radio show on KKFI 90.1 FM. To schedule a personal consultation with Patricia, please call 816.522. 7607. Please join us for an exciting evening as we learn how to turn our intuition into psychic ability.

September 2010 Program

Presents A Special September Program

“Life Force, The Scientific Basis: Breakthrough Physics of Energy Medicine, Healing, Chi and Quantum Consciousness”

Dr. Claude Swanson
Friday, September 17th 7:30 p.m.
PSI is pleased to present Claude Swanson, Ph.D. Dr. Swanson is a graduate of the prestigious M.I.T. and he attended Princeton University Graduate School where he received his doctorate in Physics. His research at Princeton was in the “Gravity Group” which focuses on experimental cosmology and astronomy. Dr. Swanson later did post graduate work at Princeton and Cornell Universities.

Dr. Swanson will discuss new insights into the nature of subtle energy and discoveries ranging from Traditional Chinese Medicine to the experiments of Von Reichenbach, Wilhelm Reich and Schauberger, to the more recent breakthroughs of Russian physicists. His work also focuses on lab experiments with powerful energy healers such as Qigong Master, Jixing Li, who killed cancer cells in Petri dishes 2,000 miles away. There is also Qigong Master, Dr. Yan Xin who has projected his energy over thousands of miles to alter decay rates of radioactive materials, bent laser beams, and changed the bonding structure of water, all under the eyes of top Chinese physicists.

For the last 20 years Dr. Swanson interspersed with his conventional career a compelling interest in “Unconventional Physics”. This unconventional research has involved such things as scientific measurements in haunted houses, experiments in remote viewing, remote healing, levitation, OBE, teleportation, ESP, the testing of unconventional devices, the survival of the soul and much more.

Dr. Swanson is the author of two books: The Synchronized Universe and LifeForce, The Scientific Basis: Breakthrough Physics of Energy Medicine, Healing, Chi and Quantum Consciousness. His second book establishes the science and the physics which back up and explain many mysteries, including long distance healing, the human aura, how shamanism creates instantaneous healings and more. Other topics in his book are: Thought Detectors, Time Modification, Subtle Energy Machines, Application of Egyptian Shape Power, Paths of Energy Healing & the Adept & the Jesus Connection just to name a few. The present scientific paradigm is breaking down and science and spirituality are joining in unity. Books will be available for purchase and a book signing will follow the program. For more information, please visit Dr. Swanson’s website

PSI will try an experiment with admission. This will be a relatively expensive program. Rather than raise the admission price, if each member would contact a friend and encourage them to come we should have a large enough audience.

If you have been thinking of joining PSI but have not done so, please send $25 for an individual or $40 for dual membership along with your name, address, and phone number (please print) to: PSI, P.O. Box 45281, Kansas City, MO 64111 & you will be admitted at no charge to this event. This is for new members only. Mailing your membership within the next week will insure that we will mail your membership card in time for the event.

Please join us as we take the next step and gain a deeper understanding of the universe and ourselves.

October 2010 Program

“Spirit Connections: TalkingWith the Deceased”

Steffany Barton, RN
Friday, October 8th 7:30 p.m.
People have attempted to contact spirits throughout most of history. Shamans contacted spirits and the oracles of ancient Greece were often consulted for advice. From the mid 1800’s through the mid 1900’s, mediums and séances were extremely popular. Notable figures like Andrew Jackson Davis, Helena Blavatsky and Arthur Conan Doyle helped give spiritualism a sense of authenticity, and séances were even held in the White House and royal palaces.

Steffany Barton is a premier psychic medium and spiritual teacher who is highly sought after for her angel readings. In this very special gallery style event, Steffany will demonstrate her gift of mediumship by giving messages from family, friends and even pets who are on the other side to members of the audience. Part of Steffany’s mission is to demystify the spiritual and psychic arts. Through public demonstrations of her work as a medium, along with her classes and workshops, she works to provide individuals with spiritual experiences based in scientific fact.

Steffany holds a degree as a Registered Nurse and is also certified in past life regression and hypnotherapy and is a Karuna Reiki Master. She will have meditation and educational CDs available for purchase.

Our loved ones on the other side are often assisting us in ways we sometimes don’t recognize. Steffany’s ability lets us connect with the spirit world and retrieve messages that can help us further our growth, answer questions and guide us along our path. Come with an open heart and prepare to be touched by the love and wisdom of the other side.

December 2010 Program

“Channeled Insight With Chris Powell”
Friday, December 3rd 7:30 p.m.
Please join us for one of our most popular and fascinating programs with the informative channeling of Chris Powell. Channeling is a natural form of communication between humans and non-physical entities. A channeler is similar to a translator. Chris has channeled for PSI for 20 years. For those of you who do not know Chris, he is a “deep trance” channel. When he is in the trance state, his conscious mind is set aside so that he has no recollection of what he said or what was said to him during the trance state.

Chris Powell, M.A., Diploma of Acupuncture, NCCA-Traditional Chinese Medicine is the owner of Missouri Acupuncture Services, LLC. Chris and his wife, Jennifer, are owners of Boulevard Yoga & Healing Arts in the Crossroads area. Chris received his Ph.D. in Epidemiology from the University of Missouri in 1992. He then continued on to a 4-year program for Traditional Chinese Medicine at the International Institute of Chinese Medicine in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Chris has formed a great rapport with Western medical doctors in the Kansas City area and around the country. This has helped patients receive acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine as complimentary medicine along with traditional treatments for cancer and other serious illnesses.

Please bring a written question of local, national or international focus. No personal questions, please. Missouri Acupuncture Services is located at: 215 Southwest Blvd., Kansas City, MO 816.931.9595
