Teachers of The Anastasi System of Psychic Development

Chances are the psychic reader you use took this course! — Psychic Medium Ericka Boussarhane


SandyEventThe Anastasi System of Psychic Development was founded by international psychic channel and astrologer Sandy Anastasi, who conceived the idea of an exclusive world wide, psychic development system. 

The system is composed of two bodies or groups of people.

The Students

A student of The Anastasi System of Psychic Development is getting some of the very best training available that will enable and help them to develop and, more importantly, control their innate psychic abilities. Ethics and psychic protection are discussed throughout the courses. These two topics are very important to all instructors of the system and as such a good deal of time is spent revisiting and focusing on them.

Broken into six courses (referred to as P1, P2, P3, Seeing Beyond the Veil, P4, P5, and P6), these courses together are composed of over 70 hours of in person instruction which teaches on such topics as:

meditation, telepathy, reality manifestation, chakras, remote viewing, past life recall, energy awareness, seeing and feeling auras, clairvoyance development, health scans, clairaudient development, straight psychic reading, psychometry, scrying, automatic writing, fear elimination techniques, self hypnosis techniques, distant healing techniques, astral traveling, empathic and clairsentience control, channeling, identifying spirits, spirit communication/mediumship, soul retrieval, dream interpretation, connecting with guides, using pendulums and much more!

By the time a student finishes their course of study they are capable of not only doing psychic readings, but of using these skills as a foundation for taking control of and improving their own life. This is a course of study that has, literally, changed lives.

The Instructors

The instructors approved to teach The Anastasi System of Psychic Development are apart of an honorary society of outstanding psychic development and mediumship development instructors that gain admission into teaching the system by invitation only.

The standards for acceptance as an Instructor of The Anastasi System of Psychic Development include over 400 hours of actual classroom work under close supervision by already certified Anastasi instructors. Additionally, the instructors have put in countless more hours of their own personal time mastering these techniques.

The instructors meet periodically to exchange ideas through informal discussions in a professional and confidential atmosphere. This roundtable forum provides a valuable opportunity for even the most experienced instructors to learn and adopt the strategies of other renowned practitioners.

United States



Karen Arbuckle – Safety Harbor, Florida

Karen Arbuckle, who lives in Safety Harbor, Florida, has had psychic experiences since she was a very young child – she just wasn’t sure what they meant. As she got older, they were suppressed for a time, and then in recent years, her experiences became more frequent. While visiting her aunt (her mother’s sister) at age 23, Karen awakened suddenly to see a woman in the doorway. At first, she thought it was her aunt, but then noticed that the person had a “transparent” look. When she heard her aunt turn over in her sleep in the next room, Karen knew that, in fact, the person in the doorway was her mother, who had passed away 12 years earlier.

When she was 29 years old, Karen’s best friend was killed in a tragic automobile accident. She traveled to the Midwest for the funeral and the night before returning home, felt a hand on her shoulder to awaken her. It was her friend, saying she couldn’t leave without saying good-bye. Many would say it was only a dream, but Karen knows it was an actual visit and remembers feeling her friend’s embrace.

Many years later, Karen began having visions on a regular basis. She decided to further explore her abilities, which led her to the “Astrological Institute of Integrated Studies,” where she received certificates in both basic psychic development and channeling/spirit communication. Karen was later accepted into the teacher program for the Anastasi System of Psychic Development and has received certification to teach both Basic Psychic Development and Channeling/Mediumship. In 2007 and 2008, Karen traveled to the Atlanta area to co-teach the entire series of psychic development classes to two separate groups of students.

Through her psychic abilities, Karen helps others to connect with loved ones who have passed away. Sometimes she receives guided information regarding people who are still living, with the messages being either current or future-related.

BEFUNK~1Lisa Freeman – Teacher, Intuitive Tarot reader, Psychic Medium, Pet Energy Work – North Port, Florida

Now from North Port, Florida, Lisa has been formally involved with metaphysical studies since 2000, when she was introduced to the Anastasi System of Psychic Development. As a young child, she enjoyed exploring, expanding her knowledge through hands on experiences, playing with animals and sharing conversation with her ‘invisible friend’ Casper, which she now recognizes as one of her guides. As a young woman she entered college to pursue her fascination with ‘why we do what we do’, and dove into Psychology and Child Development with a thirst for learning… so when she read about Sandy’s program, she immediately knew she was being led to study with her.

Born a left handed Libra, Lisa has always worked to bring balance and harmony into her life as well as the lives of others. She has been a psychic intuitive and healer all of her life, although she was well into her adult years before she began a career as a professional psychic, spirit medium, and animal energy worker. As a professional psychic and medium Lisa is constantly seeking to help heal her clients through channeled counseling and advice. Lisa has a phenomenal gift for bringing forth new, different, and interesting perspectives to many of the challenges her clients may be facing. When working as a pet-intuitive healer it is as if the animal actually tells her what is wrong, and what they need. Lisa truly loves her work with both human and animal clients.

Lisa was always fascinated with how the mind and body worked so she attended college focusing on Psychology and Counseling with an emphasis on Child Development. Her early interest in child development still continues and has led Lisa to create a class for psychically gifted children and their parents. After college Lisa worked hands on with adults and teens in a mental institution for 13 years. This experience gave her a great deal of insight into how amazing the human body and mind are, and all that we are capable of if we will only get out of our own way enough to explore new possibilities. In Lisa’s Psychic work with her clients that insight has profound influence.

Many of Lisa’s clients ask how she began working as a Professional Psychic. After years of amazing psychic experiences Lisa accepted that she had an ability within herself that needed to be brought to the surface, acknowledged, embraced, nourished and trained. Lisa searched for someone to help her understand what she was seeing, hearing, feeling, and was led to her mentor and good friend, Sandy Anastasi, developer of ‘The Anastasi System of Psychic Development’, and a future-oriented psychic channel herself. Studying Psychic Development with Sandy sparked her interest in learning more about Astrology, Tarot, Numerology, Reiki Healing and Pet energy work. Today Lisa has over 1500 classroom hours of study in Psychic Development alone, first as a student under Sandy’s tutelage, and later as a teacher of her System.

Lisa has been a professional tarot reader, future-oriented psychic channel, and psychic medium for many years now. She combines her diversified and ever expanding metaphysical knowledge and over 50 years of life experience as a born Psychic to help those who come to her for readings and insight. In her spare time Lisa enjoys dancing, reading, writing, spending time at the beach, quiet meditation time and continually learning about the metaphysical world and all that it has to offer. Currently Lisa resides in North Port, Florida with the love of her life, her puppy Laney.

Lisa Freeman has a New Mentoring Program!

Lisa is a one of the very few people on the planet today who is certified to teach The Anastasi System Of Psychic Development, which with over 1000 classroom hours plus a college background in Psychology and Child Development, certainly qualifies her to be a mentor to those who wish to learn more about their psychic abilities and how they can develop, control, and benefit from them. Although Lisa will always highly suggest that if possible, you take Sandy Anastasi’s weekend intensive seminars in person, for those who need extra help, or those who at the moment may not be able to find the time for Sandy’s in person instruction, Lisa can certainly help with your questions and concerns about experiences and help you to become more confident in working with those abilities.

lisagarciaLisa Garcia

Hi there! I am originally from upstate New York and now live in sunny Southwest Florida. Like many of my students I have always known, even from a young age, that I was a bit different. For as long as I can remember everything metaphysical was a large part of my life. But it wasn’t until 1999 that I met Sandy Anastasi and began to study The Anastasi System of Psychic Development and developed the control, skill and confidence to step into using my psychic ability professionally. After working as a psychic and tarot reader for several years I went back to complete the requirements to become certified to teach the System. It was gaining control and an understanding of my abilities that gave me the confidence needed to move forward. Today I have studied and presently teach Psychic Development, Seeing beyond the Veil, Kabbala Pathworking, Native American Theology, Past Life Regression,and Hauntings Residual Energy, and I practice Quantum Touch Healing (just to name a few).

Becoming certified to teach The Anastasi System of Psychic Development required than 3000 hours of study. Today I am delighted to be moving forward, helping students obtain control of their abilities. Teaching has become a great joy in my life. To see others gain clarity, confidence, and appreciation of their abilities is amazing to me! Yes, you can achieve your goals whether they are to become a psychic, connect with your Guides, understand your dreams and your life purpose, or to attain balance personally and professionally, through study! I believe every student is an individual and learning is singular to self. Currently, I live in Southwest, Florida with my husband of 20+ years, my teenage son, and our family pets. I am retired from over 30 years of owning and helping to build multiple businesses. That experience has proved invaluable in my teaching. I spend my time now between enjoying my family and teaching.

Currently teaching at:

Jeani Middleton – Tampa Bay, Florida

JeaniJeani is a future oriented psychic channel and medium with a wide background that includes a long career in the corporate world.  Coming from a family with various psychic abilities and divergent paths, Jeani allowed herself to explore different creative interests.  As a young child, she experienced visions and visits from the other side, which frightened her at times.  After discounting these experiences for most of her adult life, she finally looked to expand her psychic abilities and was fortunate enough to be introduced to the Anastasi System of Psychic Development.

“I remember thinking that I would take one course from Sandy to see what I could do to expand my psychic potential.  After almost 400 hours of classroom training, I can truly say it has been the best journey of my life.  It changed my reality when I entered the teacher training program and was certified to teach all 6 of the classes of The Anastasi System. “

Jeani combines her varied and increasing metaphysical awareness and life experiences to help those who come to her for insight and instruction.  As a grateful psychic, who realized her gifts gradually, she understands the need to connect to guides and relatives beyond the veil, and to use and teach protection in all her intuitive work.

Jeani lives in the Tampa Bay area of Florida with her husband.  She can be contacted through her website

Cheryl Bicknell

ATT1I have always known there was more to life than what we can see in the physical.  Although I have studied and taught informally for the past 30 years, attending Sandy’s classes ten years ago pulled it all together and answered many questions that other teachers had not been able to address. I teach her system because it is organized and complete.  I enjoy sharing this information, giving others the opportunity to become more enlightened.

I have been teaching all levels of the Anastasi System of Psychic Development both in Atlanta and Cincinnati for the past 5 years.  Currently, I teach primarily in Cincinnati but I am willing to travel outside of the area to meet the needs of students in the greater Midwest area. I am happy to help you set up a series of classes in your area. Call now to learn when the next series of Anastasi System of Psychic Development classes will be offered in Cincinnati.  I also offer both futuristic and spirit communication readings.  You can reach me at 513-604-8260 or at my email [email protected].  – Cheryl Bicknell, Certified instructor, Anastasi System of Psychic Development, Reiki Master

“Cheryl was great!  She walked us through the classes and answered the questions we had.  I sure learned to open myself up to spirit.  I had a great time and want to continue with her.” – Julie Criner, Dayton, Ohio

“I attended Cheryl’s classes in 2010.  I knew I had psychic abilities but I didn’t understand them or know how to benefit from them.  By the end of the classes I was able to manage my abilities and bring forward information I never dreamed that I was capable of.” – Janie Poppe , Mesa, Arizona

“ During six separate weekend workshops over a six-month period, I studied the Anastasi System of Psychic Development under the spiritual guidance of Cheryl Bicknell.  Cheryl teaches each class in a very calm, caring and knowledgeable manner.  She helped me to connect to my higher self, and the course assisted me in developing the various tools to enhance my psychic abilities.” – Barbara Pence, Kentucky



South Carolina

Joy Stagg

I grew up in the South and due to religious beliefs of my family, I was forced to hide my abilities.  As far back as I can remember, I never quite understood why I could see Spirits and had a “knowing” of things and people around me and others didn’t.  After my grandmother died, she would come and sit at the foot of my bed.  She would just sit there and never talk, which scared me even though I loved her dearly.  I would have intuitive dreams that would come true that involved crimes.  Yes, I also had the imaginary friend to help me along my way, which was a good thing back then. Even as a young girl, I was never able to control my abilities but I shut down everything after an overwhelming experience when I was 17 years old.

Fast forward to July 2016, when I was 48 years old, I began having trouble with my thyroid and it changed my world as I knew it.  I had an “Awakening” experience when me and my family were out of town and out of the blue, a Spirit of a young girl (Shelly) appeared to me outside my car window and began to talk to me.  For the first time, I could hear Sprit and it wasn’t scary.  I asked her if she would go away for a couple of hours, I would help her.  We did just that and after researching and help from my daughter on Facebook, I was able to identify her and I contacted her parents and visited them and gave them information that helped them with her death.  She was in a car accident.  I didn’t know what was going on at the time but it was amazing to be able to help in this manner.  Prior to 2016, I had always felt like there was something missing in my life, now I felt complete.  I realized quickly that I needed to learn to understand and control everything that was happening to me or else I would approach everyone in my path and give messages from their deceased loved ones.

My Guide, Adam, lead me to Sandy and told me she would help me control my abilities and I would help her teach.  I began taking Sandy’s intensive in person classes in January 2017 and have learned so much.  During those classes, I learned that I was a Psychic Medium. I am also a Channeler.

After a few classes, I finally gave in to my Guides and realized that I did want to teach and share my experiences and knowledge to help others that don’t have the support system that I have now.  I became a Certified Teacher in January 2018 to teach Levels 1-3, after doubling up on classes with Sandy and Carl.  I plan to be certified in all levels soon.  I teach in-person and I plan to teach online classes in the future.  I also volunteer for the Find Me Group for missing persons.

My ultimate goals are to open a business called Joy’s Metaphysical Center and conduct classes and offer readings, healings, and other metaphysical items.

Donna Power – Newfoundland, Canada

My name is Donna Power and I live in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, the most NE point in North America. I have worked as a hairstylist for almost 30 years with my new career as a psychic medium. Looking back I guess I’ve always had this ‘knowing’, but it wasn’t until my second child was born that my psychic abilities kicked in. It was only after studying The Anastasi System that all of my experiences fell into place. Not only did the classes give me a lot of “AHA” moments but for the first time ever I truly understood what ‘go with flow’ was all about. Being a medium just felt like the next natural step in my life. Through the process, I love delivering messages from spirit which can be an absolutely beautiful healing process…and is also lots of fun!  I offer individual and group sessions…

I am certified to teach The Anastasi System, Levels 1-6, in St. John’s, NL and love to share what I do and what I have learned, to experience seeing and feeling that “AHA” moment in someone else. These classes are more than learning to develop your inborn intuition, it will absolutely change your way of being. It is my hope to educate and inspire as many students, as I have been! In love and light.  For more information about upcoming classes you can contact me at: or [email protected]

“Donna, Thank you so much for inviting me into your sessions and for being such an awesome teacher. When I look at who I was 3 short months ago and the person I am now…well parts are the same but most of me has changed so much. And for the better. I am more mindful, accepting, patient and open minded. I have discovered things about myself that I never knew could be. I have also felt strong intuition but never knew how to understand it and listen to it. A million thanks for teaching me. The best teachers lead by example and by sharing. You are going to change a lot of lives Donna. I am so grateful you found this path, and that I found you and that you taught me so much. I can’t wait to learn more. A  million thanks.” – Leigh Ann Vatcher
