ranch in New Braun fels may have found that visiting a psychic doesnt include entering a building through beaded doors and looking into crystal balls In fact the fair which was spon sored by the Inner Peace Movement gave area residents the opportunity to leam how to become their own psychic Approximately five psychics and members of the Inner Peace Move ment were on hand Saturday to pro vide psychic readings In addition to this a free lecture was held to teach visitors how to become their own psychic Dwight Fehlmann a member of the Inner Peace Movement helped organize the fair According to Fehlmann IPM is based on the fact that everyone is searching for a greater understanding of life what their purpose is how they can fulfill their potential The Inner Peace Movement is an avenue for people to find these answers within themselves We all have a spiritual nature that has a big influence on how we per ceive things and how we interact with other he said Fehlmann said the Inner Peace Movement allows people to work with their inner sensitivities build an awareness on a spiritual level and work with that to find a balance in their lives Its designed and organized in a way for people to make spiritual things he said Fehlmann said tapping into a psy chic ability can help a person in both personal lives and business it helps to try to get a sense of timing of where things fit and he said Everyone is already psychic They just dont know it Everyone gets impressions hunches and inner knowings all the said Fehlmann Instead of ignoring it they can pin it down and follow through on The fair was held at El Jardin Real on Hueco Springs Loop which is owned by Dr Francisco Coll founder of the Inner Peace Movement and the Americana Leadership College The Inner Peace Movement was founded in the early 1960s and has grown to include approximately one half million people HeraldZeitung photo by JOHN HUSETH Annual Health Fair at Senior Center County nurse Shel McWIIIIams left tests the
