Students of Heidi E. Kent now have a reason to celebrate. Heidi's new non-fiction book Highlights of Palmistry goes on sale September 7th. Heidi spent a decade sharing her wisdom with students at The Kent-Cook Institute in Davidson, North Carolina. The Institute, now closed, served the Lake Norman community for many years as a school of meditation, mysticism, spiritual healing, and a place for seekers to discover their deepest gifts and connections.
Heidi is a highly-experienced Master Palmist and has practiced palmistry and other metaphysical arts all over the world. Her psychic gifts of clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience were trained at the Spiritual Community of Camp Chesterfield where she received a diploma as a Certified Medium.
Heidi is now sharing some of those gifts through her new book, Highlights of Palmistry. We caught up with the author recently to learn a bit more about what inspires her.
What fact about yourself would really surprise people?
My hobby throughout my life has been history. I fit the description of “Armchair Archaeologist.” Most Sunday afternoons you will find me in my comfy chair reading my Archaeology magazines.
What motivates you to write?
My writing gives me an avenue to share some of my experiences, my passions and my accumulated perceptions. One of the most important aspects, in my opinion, of being human is sharing information which one has experienced.
What makes you happiest?
The greatest joy of my life is spending time with my grandchildren. The fun of watching them interact with their peers, participating in sports and listening to their opinions of world events. These and other sensory inputs bring chuckles and pride.
What books did you love growing up?
Since I learned to read, reading has been one of my greatest joys. In early years my favorite books were by Carolyn Keene--both the Nancy Drew and the Dana Girl series. Later in life, one of my favorite authors was Robert Heinlein, especially Stranger in a Strange Land. Today I mostly read metaphysical authors, particularly The Impersonal Life by DeVorsa &Co. Publishers, and I Ching (the book of change) by John Blofeld.
Please tell us something about Highlights of Palmistry that is not in the summary.
Palmistry gives a person a reason to touch another person (hold hands). With this connection and a few basic palmistry lessons, an individual is empowered with personal knowledge of this stranger.
Why did you pick this particular subject matter to write about?
The study of the human mind is infinitely fascinating and the hand projects a great deal of that information. Sharing it has been a long time project for me. I have demonstrated palmistry, lectured extensively on the subject, and now have shared my knowledge with the world through publication. I hope you all enjoy it!
