DawnRose found BPI the old fashion way, by being born into it.  DawnRose knew how to ground before she could walk and has enjoyed being a psychic since birth.

Growing up around psychic’s meant that you couldn’t get away with everything, but it made trying very exciting.  DawnRose has traveled around the world with psychic’s and thinks this is the best way to travel.  England, France, Spain, Greece, Italy, Egypt, China, Nepal, India, Thailand, Philippines, Peru, Costa Rica, Mexico, Canada are all passport stamped.

Taking her place as Archbishop is a mock up 35+ years in the making.  DawnRose’s vision of BPI is a place where a spirit with a body can find it’s self.  That people through meditation will find psychic freedom as defined in the creed.

DawnRose can be reached best via email

kirk_marcroft_squareClick here to schedule a professional psychic reading with Kirk.

Kirk began his life, one Saturday morning around 11:35am, on January 14th 1966, at Stanford Hospital.

As a child Kirk was very psychic, he saw being and could feel energy and never liked the energy in his family. Kirk grew up in Redwood City until at 10 years of age, his mother got remarried and the family moved to Gilroy. This is where he learned to love nature and would often hike into the mountains by himself too feel better.

When Kirk was 18, a friend of his told him about BPI, and described it as Psychic kindergarten. In September of 1984, Kirk drove to San Jose and got his first reading at BPI. In January of 1985, on his 19th birthday, Kirk started Mediation One. But he was too embarrassed to tell any one it was his birthday, so he waited until the six week session was over to mention it.

In July of 1992 Kirk joined the one year clairvoyant program. In the late 90’s Kirk became the first Web Master and Computer Engineer for CDM, BPI and Déjà vu Publishing Company. Kirk is a graduate of the Men’s Teachers Program, three year TM Program, and was Dean of The Men’s Teachers Program for 5 years.

Kirks hobbies include: independent filmmaking, attending Burning Man, cooking, working in his shop, throwing parties and sitting in his hot tub. Kirk hold a Science Degree of Electronic and Computer Engineering and is a Licensed C10 Electrician.

Kirk is now Bishop overseeing the Men’s Program for CDM and BPI.

Right Reverend Natalie Villeda
Bishop of BPI Berkeley

natalie-768x1024Natalie was born on the north side of Chicago, Illinois during one of Chicago’s worst snow blizzards in history. The snow was stacked 6ft high in the streets. The blanket of snow brought the windy city to a quiet stand still as Natalie was birthed into the world.

Natalie grew up seeing and hearing things all the time, she was lucky to have been born into a family that would let her talk about it, even though they did not always understand her. As a child Natalie was very aware of energy and always took a long time observing people before she got close, it was important to check out the energy of a person before she jumped into being friends. Once when she was 3 years old she was walking down the street with her mother. Her mother stopped in front of a church and said “Hey let’s go in here and talk to God for a bit” Natalie proceeded to cut loose and run down the street in the other direction. She has since learned there is no use being in resistance, communication with God is fun and she now runs towards the big guy in the sky.

In the 7th grade Natalie had a science teacher that told her that everything was made of the same stuff, atoms, and that these little pieces of energy were simply vibrating at different speeds. This made sense to Natalie and she started thinking about her school desk, her skin and her lunch all made of the same stuff. She resolved that someday she was going to learn how to manipulate these vibrations.

Natalie holds a degree in Women’s Studies from UC Santa Cruz and has worked in many different areas. She has done social work with psychotic homeless women in San Francisco, continues working with Burning Man out in the Nevada desert and a few years ago she started her own business as a professional Intuitive Counselor.

Natalie used to be out of control with her healing of others, she was super sensitive to other peoples feelings and couldn’t help taking it on. Thank goodness she found BPI in 1998, here she learned psychic meditation and started to get a hold of her abilities. Taking classes and programs gave her the wisdom to laugh at herself, especially when the growing got rough. Natalie continues to laugh the hardest when things get a get a little tricky and prescribes this technique to others. She swears by it, calling it her best beauty secret by far.

Reverend Aleta Sage
Dean, Dendera Program

Aleta SageAleta loves teaching meditation and is pretty sure she was born to do it.  Her first time meditating was when she was 16 years old after reading directions in national geographic magazine. A couple years later she started a 3 day a week meditation and yoga program,  which she was devoted to for years.  But for her, nothing compares to psychic kindergarten. 13 years ago she found BPI and has had the best meditation adventure ever since!

 Reverend Stuart Turner
Director, Men’s Program

Hi, my name is Stuart Turner.

I am from Tucson, AZ home to some of the most magnificent thunderstorms. I have an associates degree in electronics and a bachelors in engineering from Arizona State University. I enjoy hiking, mountain biking on my well worn mongoose, swimming, and watching wildlife.

My first psychic reading occurred before attending the movie Stalker, which was the feature show next to the Psychics place of residence in Santa Monica.

Living in Los Angeles I worked for the same company that manufactured the rockets that flew to the moon; however, a process engineering opening at a San Francisco manufacturer drew me to the Bay Area. I found Berkeley Psychic Institute within a year of living in the Bay and attended a “Psychic Fair” which transformed my life.
Subsequently I began taking classes and graduated from the clairvoyant program in 2001 and have since become a Licensed Minister and Teacher at the Berkeley Psychic Institute, which is the seminary of the Church of Divine Man.
