As children, we learned about our five senses: seeing, tasting, smelling, hearing, and touching. But, many believe there is a sixth sense, one that is not as easily understood. The sixth sense, as defined in Webster, “A power of perception like, but not one of the five senses, a keen intuitive power.” This course will emphasize meditation along with other activities, as we explore the sixth sense and make up our own minds about its existence.
