Psychometry Workshop at Minx+Muse
October 24 @ 11:00 am$35
Sudden and unexpected mental impressions — on occasion they come to each of us. Imagine, for instance, the burst of emotion you might feel when you touch an unusual object in a junk shop. Or imagine a word or phrase that pops into your head at the exact moment you discover someone’s abandoned item on a park bench. These experiences might seem somehow related to traditional memory, but this can’t be because the image or emotion has been prompted by an object never previously held in your possession. It may seem as if you’re experiencing deja vu, but this can’t be because the images or emotions are not associated with any of your own experiences.
The ability to decipher sudden messages that come to us through contact with physical objects has a name. It’s called psychometry. It is an ability that has been associated with art and artists, although not typically using that word. Spiritualist writers also have devoted hundreds of pages to psychometry, associate it with spirit communication, and have offered instructive advice on how to pursue it.
Join Albert Lucio and Jake Cordero of The Austin Séance on Sunday, October 24, for a hands-on workshop in which attendees will learn how to fine-tune their own psychometric abilities. The Austin Séance workshop also includes training in a separate, lesser-known, spiritualist technique, and a discussion of cultural and historical contexts. Psychometric messages may have their origins in the spirit world, or they may have some other explanation. What’s clear, however, is that these messages are derived from physical objects, but also — paradoxically — transcend them. Join Albert and Jake from The Austin Séance to find out more.$
