WORKSHOP:  THE OCCULT SCIENCE OF NUMEROLOGY, 1:00-5:00 pm
Presenter:  Thomas Juhasz

Physical sciences, such as the atomic table in physics and DNA in biology, reveal to us the seen world.  Occult sciences, such as astrology and numerology, reveal the unseen.  But both are based on mathematics and go back in time to the beginning of human civilization.  In this workshop you will learn of the unseen energies and systems in your life, and then how to properly and specifically use the skills to do your own numerological chart and that of the lives of others.  Be awakened by amazing insights into your life path.

Thomas Juhasz  is a teacher at the Rishis Institute of Metaphysics, with over 15 years of experience, and was trained by Dr. Robert Crary.   He also taught grades 2-6 in elementary school and special education students in the Cleveland Municipal School District.   In the occult science of numerology, Tom Juhasz means “Shepherd.”  What will your name reveal?Suggested donation:  Members – $20   Non-members – $30
