Hello everyone! I am curious to know if there are any UMS graduates, or students for that matter, who have published works in the metaphysical field. If there are, where can we find their work?
Also, does anyone happen to know when UMS started?

UMS was created in 2002, but did not open to the public until 2004, courses were being researched and written for 5 years prior to opening. As for graduates and students who have written books, we are aware of a quite a lot of our students who have written books, some are even marketing and speaking with them. I'm not sure how many of them might frequent the discussion board, but I can tell you there are some, although I'm not allowed to reveal their names because of our confidentiality policies. But I did want to at least answer your question about when University Of Metaphysical Sciences started.

Hello Laura! Thank you for the answers! I fully understand about the confidential aspect of graduates and students. I was simply curious to find fellow travelers and see what they were creating! Also, I had read about the amount of time it took to put UMS together, but I couldn't find a time when it had officially started, so thank you for letting me know!

I have turned my dissertation into a booklet and course for paranormal ghost hunters. It's been published on lulu.com. I wouldn't mind taking it off there and turning it over to UMS, when they decide to do more with the paranormal as far as ghosts.
I also have turned my thesis into a course that i give to my trained paranormal investigators, so they can multi-task. I haven't published it, but i could. I am also waiting for UMS to decide if they want to use something like that or not.

I would love to buy your booklet on paranormal ghost hunters! In a (very quick) scan of Lulu.com, I could not find it. Can you give us the title or a link to the page on Lulu? If your books are as fascinating as your posts, they are bound to be both fun and informative.

Sure, Here it is. I have contemplated not keeping it on there. Undecided. Lulu does not have any rights on it. So i can take it off, sell it, or give it to a different publisher, should i need to. I did not put my house healing course on there, although i should because i have used it quite a lot, and it's worked well.

Sorry I double posted; I was trying to repost our most recent annual review that I posted here some weeks ago, but cannot find it nor the system will not let me upload it ... so instead here is the extract from our web-pages that says a little bit more ...

I believe there are a number of metaphysical websites that accept articles for submission, which I think is a good first step before trying to find a publisher for larger works. I've taken my PhD dissertation and modified it somewhat to submit to Alternative Approaches (http://alternativeapproaches.com/pnuke1/Article5251.html).

I have just posted something on a web-site hosted by Harper Collins, the web-site is called Authonomy.com, and it is an on-line community for folk who are or have written, and are trying to share their work with a view to publication. The little book/text I have put up there in case anyone is interested is called, Spiritscope, and I am there as Paul J. Thompson.

Thanks for posting PJ, I will eagerly look into it. My time has been the hardest challenge, because I do so much other stuff and working with clients that writing has been on the back burner and I already paid for my writing class. Grrrr, I wish I would have waited till things slow down, however business is booming and I have an idea it's going to get BIG before it slows down.
I have clients all week, which is a good thing. YET, if the snow keeps coming down, I may have to cancel as it's a high liability having a client fall or slip, due to bad weather conditions, while trying to come to my home office.
The good news is, I am working with published authors currently, who are helping me get my foot in the door to being published.
I did make the local paper this past week. YEP, I held an event that was brand spanking new to the world... and my little town got to see it first. LOL I invented something so unique... i now have to run and get it trademarked. Ohhhh the headaches that go with everything. LOL
