What is PPS?
Portland Psychic School was founded in 2015 as a place for energy-sensitive people to learn tools and techniques that enhance their inherent, natural psychic abilities - and get them turned on and active in their life - in a validating way. We marry a specific style of meditation, Psychic Meditation, with information and concepts related to Clairvoyance and Healing that have been represented in every culture and spiritual tradition on the planet. We are not affiliated with any other teachers, psychic schools, or religions/spiritual organizations.
Where does this stuff come from?
What we teach is an experiential, oral tradition. It is not found in any texts, books, or information written by other teachers or organizations. We have been practicing, professional level psychic teachers, readers, and healers - many of us for over a decade. We combine learned techniques, our day to day experience of being psychic, and our unique passions and enthusiasms to what we teach. As a school we focus on bringing psychic abilities, energy awareness, meditation tools, and Clairvoyant techniques into the present so they are relevant and applicable to our modern, urban lifestyles. When you study in a school rather than with a single teacher, you get instruction in different styles and perspectives, which actually makes it easier and more fun for you to own your abilities for yourself.
Who are our students?
Many of our students are interested in developing professional reading and healing practices, some already have those practices and are looking for new tools for their toolkit. Many of our students simply want to learn how to manage energy in a way that validates their own experience so they can be psychic in their careers, relationships, and creative or professional endeavors. It's a diverse and mixed bag, and we think that creates a vibrant and exciting place to study. Everyone is psychic; it's a natural human ability to be aware of and sensitive to energy. Just like any art, there is craft and skill that can be learned to enhance your natural abilities. It's like playing a musical instrument, except the instrument is you!
Where do I start?
Every student at PPS starts with the 5-week Psychic Meditation Class. This class teaches the foundational tools and techniques we use for working with energy in every class and training. Even for the experienced intuitive, psychic, or energy healer we find that it is invaluable to get aligned regarding core concepts, experiential tools, and terminology. Psychic Meditation is a core technique in everything that we do, and this incredible class gives you the fundamentals of the form so you can see if it works for you, is something you are excited about, and want to continue with as part of your psychic growth and development. Once you complete this class, there are two ways forward:
Our year long training is the cornerstone of the school. It is a safe and structured path towards building confidence in your ability to work with energy as a psychic, and more specifically, to see energy as a Clairvoyant. Those whose practice Clairvoyance find clarity and discernment in relationship to the energy of the world around them - and more importantly the energies within themselves. Once you complete the year long training, there are Advanced Trainings for Men, Women, Astral Body Travel, the Akashic Records, and other fun topics you can choose from based on your passions and interests!
We teach a variety of advanced meditation workshops and classes. We also offer a vibrant set of Energy Healing Classes, which is all about working with energy in a tactile way - directing energy in the body through a healing agreement with another person. We have our own techniques and tools for healing that are different from - but complimentary to - many other modalities and forms. Our advanced and healing classes vary by semester and include study in Psychic Yoga Healing, Kundalini Energy, Men's and Women's Energy, and lots more.
Readings & Healings
Another great place to start is getting a student reading from our Clairvoyant Students, or a Professional Reading or Healing from our staff. We have a variety of options, including Aura and Past Life Readings starting at only $25, so coming in or logging on to receive a reading or healing is a great way to see what we're teaching, practicing and creating at the school and if you're excited by it.
In Person vs Online?
We get asked this a lot, and the experiences are so different, it's impossible to compare them. Our senior staff have been teaching and working professionally online via webcam since 2008, so we have a real understanding of how to make an online classroom and virtual experience impactful, engaging, meaningful, and fun. Our in-person classes are intimate and create a sense of community that is impossible to re-create online. We apply different expertise and abilities to each format, and create magic in both environments. The online classes and trainings are designed from the ground up to be taught virtually, so they aren't just "online versions" of the in-person offerings; the tone, pacing, curriculum, and experience is set very different for each format. What it boils down to is what you want and what you're interested in.
