Fortune tellers and soothsayers : the new shrinks ?
Instead of sofa monologues that are a tad frustrating, one prefers instant answers. Fortune tellers, mediums, telepaths, clairvoyants, you will be surprised to hear that George Clooney, Cameron Diaz and Brad Pitt consult them regularly. And the capacity of these“soothsayers” to read in your lives is sometimes bluffing.
Such is the case of Elodie Mourrain, who has NLP training (neuro-linguistic programming), biological decoding as well as sophro-relaxation. By communicating with our ancestors, they manage to treat issues buried from generation to generation that are coming back to the surface. A terrific experience worthy of the Sixième Sens. She also organises workshops to learn how to develop and follow you own intuition.
