February 2010 Ritual Abuse Newsletter

February 14, 2010

This is a new letter I am getting and I’d love to get the opinion on them.  I did get to hear the last webinar with Mike Skinner and of course you all know I think he is number one for me when it comes to this work.  So please read and share it with those you think can benefit from it.
