Echo Bodine discovered at age 17 that she has psychic abilities and the gift of healing. Her abilities include clairvoyance, the gift of seeing; clairaudience, the gift of hearing; and clairsentience, the gift of sensing. Echo studied psychic development for several years and learned about the gift of healing from her spirit guides and through prayer and meditation. In 1979, she quit her mainstream job and became a full-time psychic consultant, a healer, and a teacher of psychic development and healing classes, as well as a ghostbuster.
She is the author of several books, including Hands That Heal, The Gift, A Still Small Voice, and Echoes of the Soul (New World Library). Her work has been featured in major newspapers and magazines, and she has appeared on several national television shows, including Beyond with James Van Praagh, The View, NBC's Later Today, Sally Jesse Raphael, Sightings, Encounters, The Other Side, Coast to Coast, and Paranormal Borderline, where she was billed as a member of "the world's most psychic family." She also has served as a consultant in the film industry to companies such as Paramount Pictures. She lectures throughout the country on intuition, spiritual healing, life, death, and life after death. She also offers workshops through The Center, her teaching and healing center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her website is www.echobodine.com.
