Are You Telepathic? Can you sense who's on the other end before you pick up the phone—without looking at caller ID ;-) ?

  Try Our New Telephone Telepathy Experiment! This experiment is fun and easy to do, and your participation helps IONS by creating a large enough set of data to be meaningful. You don't need to think you can sense who's on the line - just try it and see what happens.

In his 90-minute seminar, The Key To Evolving Beyond Ego, he offers an illuminating perspective on ego, provocatively evokes the possibilities that lie beyond it, and shares his step-by-step process for leaving it behind by aligning with an accessible but hidden spiritual capacity within each of us.
