FtB reader Adam Shelton alerted me to some excellent opportunities for continuing education being offered by the Toronto District School Board.
Everything You Want to Know About Ghosts but Afraid to Ask – 46559
Think your house is haunted? Felt a cold shiver? Find out how to clean and protect your house, work, cottage, and body from unwanted spirits.

So much more below the fold.
Ghost Tour-Toronto – 46026
Learn about ghosts and hauntings, and get hands-on experience searching them out! We will spend two hours of in-class study on what ghosts could be and how to investigate of a haunting. Learn how to do background research and a psychological profile of the spirit, then test your theories at some of the GTA’s legendary haunted sites. A full Saturday of investigation includes a visit to three sites, each with guided access and research tips. Bring a lunch! With any luck, we will even meet the real thing! (material costs: Bus transportation charges approximately $15-22. Site visit charges approximately $10-27. Please be prepare to pay in cash only on the 1st class.)
How Intuition Works – 45855
Learn how intuition works, how you can cultivate it, what handy applications it can have to everyday life and surprise yourself with an in-class intuitive experience! Q&A and future learning resources to follow.
Making Stuff Happen – 45863
Discover the principles and the energy source behind creating what you want in your life. Learn why sometimes you seem to pull something out of thin air and why sometimes no matter how hard you try, you remain empty handed. (materials costs: $20 – optional)
How strange that all of these courses can be fully covered in one lesson compared to the usual 11 week schedule of normal courses! Of course, there are also the usual woo-type wellness courses (reiki, healing meditation, holistic empowerment, etc).
I guess this isn’t much compared to the shenanigans that go on with education down in the USA sometimes but it’s enough to make me feel less jealous (? I may have issues). Though we do have the whole lame separate schools thing up here, I suppose…
Yeah. When I read this, all I could manage to come up with as a rebuttal was a Futurama quote. “You’ve got a degree in baloney!” It’s only a shame that they don’t offer these things by distance education (e.g. by astral projection), or I might partake in one or many of these. Especially after taking that The Secret thing and intending myself into enough wealth to get more degrees in baloney.
Another choice pick I found in the offerings:
Exploring Healing Energies
The human body has an energy field which operates at a very subtle level. Disruptions or blocks in the flow of the body’s energy field occur during illness. Restoring the smooth flow of energy activates the body’s natural ability to heal itself. An understanding of the principles of working with subtle energy can facilitate healing. Learn to sense and assess energy flow and to remove energy blocks. Acquire techniques for accessing and channeling healing energy.
And if none of the abovementioned courses interest you, there’s always reflexology, or perhaps shamanism! So many choices!
Of course, if you can’t afford any of these, you could always take a course in Quantum Jumping elsewhere, then simply jump to all the versions of yourself in alternate universes that actually got degrees in all this baloney.
Sometimes, at night, I weep for humanity. I wonder if there’s a course for that.
