Those of us who live in London are very lucky to be near one of the most famous places to learn psychic skills - The College of Psychic Studies
I've never studied there myself, but a friend who trained as a medium at the college raves about it.
The College of Psychic Studies offers more than 50 different courses, covering various aspects of psychic, spiritual and healing development. These include meditation, energy work, art and divination, trance, healing and psychic development.
There are short courses for beginners, to help them decide what they want to concentrate on, and the college recommends taking classes in meditation as a first step before trying anything advanced, including psychic development.
The College of Psychic Studies is at 16 Queensberry Place, London SW7 2EB, UK. Tel: 020 7589 3292.
