National President Linda Oliveira
About the Presentation
The human being has many "powers" in varying degrees of unfoldment. Some are latent, others may be more apparent. This presentation will address a range of these powers from the point of view of Theosophical tradition. As part of this exploration, we will consider psychic powers and spiritual powers, and their correlation with different human principles.
