***NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY***
Meet others who are interested in psychic phenomena. We discuss, study and share a very wide range of psychic, spiritual, metaphysical, paranormal, holistic, mind/body/spirit/heart/soul health and wellness topics. Members are generally from middle Tennessee, northern Alabama and southern Kentucky with a few outside that region. Events posted here usually take place in Nashville but may be held in other cities throughout the region.
NPM is not a group of psychics/mediums as its name might suggest, though some members have been gifted or have developed (or are developing) those and/or other abilities. Many work professionally in the field. NPM was originally founded on these ideas, and has gone through many energetic shifts and changes since then, but still has the same visions. We welcome all people as they are, no matter what one's beliefs, experiences, or level of knowledge may be. All are invited who have inquiring minds.
NPM is free to join and does not charge fees for membership or to post events. It is paid for by donations. Donating will remain voluntary as long as this site continues to support itself. Meetup.com increased Organizer fees to $180.00 per year in 2015, a $36.00 per year increase. That is the discounted rate for paying 6 month intervals in advance. Event Hosts, members, or others who find value here are encouraged to donate from time to time to keep this meetup group free, especially those Event Hosts who charge a fee or ask for donations/love offerings to attend their events they post here for free.
NPM is a very diverse group that ranges from what one might call *beginners* all the way up to people with a lifetime of experience and/or who are professionals in various fields, and every level in between. We share with, teach and learn from each other. Whether you are trying to explain the amazing things that happen in your life or you are just curious about what is possible, we invite you to join us to share experiences and learn together.
NPM gratefully accepts donations from members and Event Hosts HERE, or at the "Donate" link in the left margin, to help pay the $180 yearly fee. NPM Organizers keep none of the donations. They all go back into the group to pay meetup.com fees and possibly an occasional "organizer hosted" NPM event, like we have done in the past.
NPM is an open group. All members are considered organizers and event hosts. Any member may post events on the NPM group website, with one exception: Private readings, or other private 1-on-1 services, that are not connected in some way to a group event, where no opportunity for people to gather in group to learn is offered, are no longer considered meetups and are not allowed here and will be deleted.
Please do not send us messages asking us post or advertise your event for you. We will not. We have received dozens of these type requests over the years and we turn them all away. However, in the same breath, we have always invited those same people to join the group and do it themselves, if they choose, and we continue to do so. Most do not. The choice is yours. We will gladly teach you how if you need help, and we will certainly assist if you're having trouble with the meetup site. Just ask. :)
Practitioners, teachers, facilitators or any member may organize and suggest their event, or the event of another, any time by logging in and clicking the "+Suggest A Meetup" link, fill in the fields, then click "suggest" at the bottom of the page. We will announce within a few hours or the next day in most cases. Occasionally longer. Each Event Host must decide for themselves whether or not to charge a fee, ask for donations or make their event free.
Event Hosts and others should refrain from posting pictures here that contain the faces of attendees. We have recently had complaints from people who did not want their pictures at events posted in public here. All pictures with attendee faces that were posted here have been deleted, as will be the case going forward. Most events posted here would not really be considered "photo appropriate" to begin with, by most people. Please use discretion.
Abuse, in any form, is not tolerated here. You are entitled to your opinion. You are not entitled to post it here if it can be even remotely considered abuse towards others. Anyone not honoring this request will be swiftly removed. This group functions independent of any particular store, business, faith or belief system. It exists for the sole purpose of learning. No one will enter here and force their views or belief system upon others.
In the interest of openness about how this group functions, NPM is not a business entity or non-profit organization. It is a community meetup group that exists on the internet. That's it. Our donation ledgers are freely viewable in the message boards to all members who are logged in. Donors are encouraged to verify their donations are logged as anonymous, or however each requests to be logged.
NPM does not seek sponsors, sell ads, buy advertising, trade ads for donations, or anything of the sort. Ads are not allowed here. Business, organizational, group, et al., names used as or in screen names will be removed. These type names are also not to be used in event titles except in rare cases when they are one in the same. Venue or location names excluded, of course. Flyers or pictures that promote single events are OK as long as they are posted within the event announcement itself. There is a place in the message board for introduction if one would like to tell others about what they offer, without ads or pictures. Of course, linking to any websites in the message board or meetup announcements is perfectly fine, and we encourage that. Your personal profile and avatar are yours to do with as you wish. Advertising there is fine, as long as there is no inappropriate material and as long as it does not turn into excessive spamming, in which case, you will be removed. It is our desire and duty to the members here to ensure this group does not turn into a spam-fest, and it most definitely will not.
Unless clearly stated in the event announcements, NPM receives NONE of the proceeds from ANY events posted here. This includes events advertised as " 'donations' or 'love offerings' accepted", which go to the Event Hosts, not NPM. Again... donations directly to NPM Organizers are the ONLY way to help pay for this site and for this group to exist.
Enjoy your time here and enjoy connecting with others at all of the different meetups you may choose to attend!
Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
