In December 2006 Lynn Thompson welcomed Echo Bodine as her guest on the "live" broadcast of "Living on Purpose" on CHLY in Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island. They were connected through New World Library, who published her recently released book that year "The Key", which along with "The Gift" (2003) were written specifically for those interested in understanding and developing their psychic abilities.

Echo Bodine first discovered she was born with psychic abilities and the gift of healing at age of 17. In 1981, Echo began teaching classes on psychic development and spiritual healing. In 1982, she wrote her first book called "Hands That Heal", which teaches others how to channel spiritual healing. Her second book, "Passion to Heal" was released in 1989. Her third book, "Echos of the Soul" was released in 1998 followed by "Relax, It's Only a Ghost" in 1999 and "Dear Echo", in 2002.

Echo has appeared on numerous national television shows including Sally Jesse Raphael, Sightings, Beyond with James Van Praagh, NBC's The Other Side, Un-explained Mysteries, NBC's Today Show, A&E, and Encounters. Paranormal Borderline did a feature story on her family, calling them the "world's most psychic family".

Echo hosted her own cable TV show called New Age Perspectives for two years, and co-hosted the The Edge TV. She also had her own radio show on FM107 in Minneapolis for 3 years called Intuitive Living, and Paramount Pictures solicited her services for the promotion of the movie Ghost.

Currently, Echo teaches psychic development at her Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, lectures around the country on psychic abilities, spiritual healing, intuition and ghosts. She is working on her ninth book about reincarnation, due out in 2008.
