|In 1976, the School of Metaphysics published a book called Charisma: The Art of Communication. |
It was written by a student, studying Lesson 28 in the SOM course of study, who had recently moved to a new city to direct a School of Metaphysics. She had been studying for 10 months.
Charisma went through five printings and 8500 copies before going out of print in 1989. Now, 22 years later, it is an ebook (complete with contemporary material added by its author Barbara Condron) available for limited time by download as our gift toward your growing awareness!

Charisma - The Art of Communication
by Dr. Barbara Condron
Throughout your lifetime you have probably encountered many who possess a magnetism. Their essence seems to shine, drawing you deep within their thoughts. They seem to have tapped a limitless source of power in transmitting their ideas. These people command respect. They are people who have something to say, never fearing that no one will listen.
Charisma is the quality of such a person. The word itself often seems to imply an illusively mystical concept difficult to define. Actually, charisma describes the qualities of a person who focuses his attention within, then directs this outward to others.
John F. Kennedy and Robert Kennedy were noted for their charismatic personalities. Their words and actions are repeatedly recalled by every type of individual from historians and politicians to construction workers. A charismatic person can take the thought of another individual and give it permanent life. Robert Kennedy did this with a now famous quote created by playwright George Bernard Shaw: “Some people see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and say why not?”
