People curious about what goes on behind that large, stone wall they drive past on their way out of Yelm have an opportunity to get an inside look at the Ramtha School of Enlightenment.
The school holds a beginner’s event 1-4 p.m. Saturday at 14507 Yelm Highway S.E. The event is free and open to the public.
Steve Klein, RSE’s event services manager, said it gives visitors a taste of the school’s history while introducing them to techniques taught at the school, with speakers using their own stories to illustrate how the techniques can be applied in “real life.”
The school’s bookstore will be open to the public during the event, he said.
JZ Knight, the purported channeler of Ramtha, who founded the school, will not be speaking at the event, he said.
One of the techniques discussed will be remote viewing, Klein said. Remote viewing is the belief that people can view an object with their mind.
Klein said everyone has an innate ability to perform remote viewing and said everyone has had some kind of “psychic experience,” such as knowing a phone is going to ring before it does so, and knowing who will be calling.
RSE student Ana Mihalcea, who is a medical doctor, will elaborate on her claims that she cured her cancer using techniques using the school’s techniques.
Recently, the school has promoted the stories of students who claim they used RSE techniques to help them win money from the state lottery or casino games.
Some of those people will be speaking at the event to describe what they did to take RSE’s techniques and integrate them in life outside the school, Klein said.
“The casino and lottery training going on here is not gambling,” he said.
Klein said the number of free introductory events held by the school varies from year to year. There are two scheduled for 2013 so far. It didn’t hold any in 2012, he said.
“Due to the interest in the school and what’s been happening this year, we decided to go ahead and add these,” he said.
Depending on the time of year, attendance can be anywhere from 100 to several hundred people, Klein said.
