In January 2004, it became obvious to a small group of newcomers that there was need for a metaphysical network in this area. Christina Knighton, Personal Life Coach (and current Green Party Candidate); Myrtle Innes, a retired professional psychic; William Munns, retired Humanities Professor and Judith Munns, Clinical Hypnotherapist, began creating a speakers list and inviting interested people to events on the first and third Thursdays of each month. The group enjoyed slow and steady growth until January 2007, with up to 45 people attending each event.
However, January marked a turning point. When author Paul Elder was arriving to talk about his near-death experiences, it became obvious that the rapidly swelling group would not fit into our meeting room, so the venue was changed to the Unitarian Fellowship Hall on Townsite Road at Millstone. This comfortable and central venue, with its excellent parking, has resulted in regular attendance of 55 to 95 people each first and third Thursday of the month. The Network’s email list is almost 300, which offers each unpaid speaker a chance to share their area of expertise with a self-screened, open and interested audience. A networking table is available for everyone to share business cards, brochures and other pertinent advertising. A few networking minutes set aside at each meeting, allows everyone who wishes to announce their own classes or events. Refreshments are available.
On September 6th, 2007 the Network’s fourth Fall season begins with a second talk by well-known author Paul Elder, this time on Remote Viewing – which is one of the subjects he teaches at the Monroe Institute in the U.S. [Monroe Institute is famous for Hemi-Synch®, a method of promoting the synchronization of the activity of both hemispheres of the brain, using sound.] Paul’s talk promises to be very popular, so please arrive early in order to reserve your place! Networking time begins at 6:30, and the talk begins at 7pm.
