FREE event at JFK University: “Death Makes Life Possible” film & discussion with Marilyn Schlitz, PhD

The Consciousness & Transformative Studies MA Program at JFK University is starting a new “Dialogues in Consciousness” series to be offered free to the JFKU community and the general public.

The first of the Spring 2015 series will be offered on Thursday, April 30 at 7:15 PM, with a brief meet-and-greet starting at 7 PM.

We are very proud (and happy) to present Dr. Marilyn Schlitz and the 1 hour film she produced with Deepak Chopra, “Death Makes Life Possible.” The film follows her exploration of the mysteries of life and death from a variety of perspectives and world traditions. Sparked by her own near death experience as a teenager, Schlitz has been delving into the nature of consciousness and death for the past three decades.

The film looks at how popular culture deals with the ever-present fear many have about our own mortality. Interviews with mental health experts, cultural leaders, and scientists explore the meaning of death and how we can learn to live without fear. The interviews and evidence presented are interwoven with personal stories of people facing their own death as well as those who report encounters beyond death. The narrative is illustrated with vivid imagery.

Following the film will be an interview and discussion with Dr. Schlitz.

The free event will be held at
JFK University, room 209
100 Ellinwood Way (off Contra Costa Blvd.)
Pleasant Hill, CA 94523

The events will be video-recorded for later upload to the web, with links published wherever we can. The plan is to provide the recordings in streaming video and as a downloadable mp3 audio file.

Test Your ESP session, a Possession class and a PK Party for April & May (so far)

We have two special one-shot parapsychology/paranormal classes and a PK Event coming in the next couple of weeks.
TEST YOUR ESP & PK class on April 29
PSYCHIC ATTACK, POSSESSION AND PSYCHIC SELF-DEFENSE class on May 6
PK PARTY on May 8

Read below for all three, plus the announcement of a special related event on April 30 at JFK University.

For all three HCH classes/events following, please contact the instructor, Loyd Auerbach, directly to pre-register. It is very important that you contact him before the session. We have both a minimum and maximum number of people we can have for these sessions.

Contact Loyd at profparanormal@gmail.com or by phone at 925-518-4071.

TEST YOUR ESP & PK: Wednesday, April 29 from 7-9:30 PM $40
This special session will present a variety of methods for people to test their own ESP and PsychoKinesis (Mind Over Matter) — which we’ll try throughout the class. The emphasis will be mainly on various ESP abilities (including mediumistic talents) and attendees will get to try their minds at a variety of tasks.

Parapsychologist Loyd Auerbach will “test” you and provide assessments, as well as provide you with instruction as to how to continue to work with the testing methods at home — which can help you develop your abilities as well.

Also available to attend by phone — we will try some distance ESP tests with you! Note: mp3 recordings and text materials will be made available to all registered attendees.

PSYCHIC ATTACK, POSSESSION AND PSYCHIC SELF-DEFENSE: Wednesday, May 6 from 6:30 – 9:30 PM $50.
This one-shot class takes a look at the evidence for and against possession (by spirits and demons), how this is related to channeling and mediumship, to spirit attachment, and the difference between possession and psychic attack. How can one discern what’s going on in situations that might be called possession, psychic attack, ESP gone wrong, psychological disturbance or just plain mistaken perception? What can an investigator do? Or an exorcist? Or even a shaman?

There will be a discussion of the pluses and minuses of spirit communications practices, from the “dreaded” Ouija Board (and why it has a bad rap) to automatic writing to EVP and the use of K2 and other meters and flashlights.

Finally, parapsychologist Loyd Auerbach will directly address techniques for psychic protection and self-defense as well as getting rid of bad energy/entities.

Available to attend by phone — mp3 recordings and text materials will be made available to all registered attendees.

PK PARTY! COME PLAY AT MIND OVER MATTER!! Friday, May 8 from 7:30-9:30 (*though may go a little later). $$25 if you bring at least 4 spoons; $30 if you come without utensils.
This is a special session devoted to the experience of Psycho-Kinesis.
In part one, you’ll learn and play with a method of mentally moving small targets.
Part two is a Spoon-Bending Party!
Note: This session will only run if we have at least 10 people (and we are limited to no more than 22). We need a good turnout in order to get the social energy up (and to have fun)!
Anyone 10 years or older is welcome to attend.
Please be sure to pre-register with Loyd Auerbach no later than Friday morning!
Note that this session will not be recorded, and necessitates in-person attendance.

Loyd Auerbach can be reached via email at profparanormal@gmail.com or by phone at 925-518-4071.

EVIDENCE FOR LIFE AFTER DEATH course starts April 9th!

I’ll be offering my three part “Evidence for Life After Death” course, part of the Parapsychological Studies Certificate Program (or taken as a solo course), on three Thursday evenings at HCH Institute in Lafayette, CA (or you may join us by phone):

April 9, 16 & 23, 2015, from 6:30-9:30 PM

Do we survive the death of our bodies? Is there Life after Death? What is the evidence? This seminar will cover the search for evidence of Survival of Bodily Death from the earliest psychical researchers to parapsychologists of today. With an eye towards the evidence garnered and the research and investigations methods to gather it — the class covers topics such as ghosts, mediumship, near death experiences, electronic voice phenomena, out of body experiences, reincarnation and psychic experience says about whether we live on in some fashion after the deaths of our bodies.

Some time will also be spent discussing the recent research of Dr. Julie Beischel of the Windbridge Institute and previous work by Dr. Gary Schwartz of the University of Arizona conducting research with psychic mediums and the continuing work at the University of Virginia with children who remember previous lives.

The importance of ESP and PK in any model of Survival will be discussed. The class will also look at the debate regarding evidence for Survival vs. the Super-Psi hypothesis from the perspective of the Survival proponents.

All students receive a DVD-rom with mp3 recordings of a past course session as well as extensive text and video materials, including several dozen ebooks. Additionally, all students are sent a download link for the audio recording of each of the new class sessions (for this course offering in 2015).

HAUNTINGS: IN DEPTH! One shot class on March 10, 2015

Please Join Us!

Tuesday March 10th, 6:30 – 9:30 PM Pacific Time, at HCH Institute, 3702 Mt. Diablo Blvd, Lafayette, CA or by phone!

Hauntings: In Depth

$50

The term “haunting” refers to places that have repeated paranormal/ghostly activity. Buildings or the land they are built on can be haunted, and the building can be old or even relatively new. It’s also possible for objects to be haunted (after all, what is a house but a big object?). Researchers have long determined that hauntings (often referred to as “residual hauntings” by many) have a different cause than apparition/ghost cases: place memory/psychic imprints vs. actual conscious entities . This one-evening session will look at the long history of haunted places and objects and why psychical researchers and parapsychologists have separated them into their own category different from apparitions.

Learn about the models of hauntings, from psychic imprinting to the British “stone tape theory” to geophysical possibilities. We’ll also delve into specific haunting cases, including a few from the casebooks of the instructor, Loyd Auerbach and several of his colleagues. We’ll consider how sometimes phenomena can be mixed (hauntings and apparitions together), and even how a haunting can cause a poltergeist situation. Finally, for those investigating haunting, apparition, and poltergeist cases, we’ll talk about resolving cases of hauntings and how and why haunting resolutions are so different from the others.

This will be offered on site at HCH Institute in Lafayette, CA, available on disc as MP3 files for home study and also offered live on a conference call format for our distant learning students (by phone!)

Cost: $50 for on site class and distant learning.

TO REGISTER: Call or email Loyd Auerbach at 925-518-4071 or profparanormal@gmail.com OR Send payment via PayPal to profparanormal@gmail.com I can take credit card payment over the phone as well.

Please indicate your interest as soon as possible.

GHOST HUNTING class starts February 26, 2015

My HCH Institute investigations class starts on Thursday, February 26, 2015 and runs for four Thursday evenings. The class runs from 6:30-9:30 PM Pacific Time and can be attended in person in Lafayette, CA at HCH Instituteor by phone!

Ghost Hunting: Investigating the Paranormal

Instructor: Loyd Auerbach, MS

Thursdays, 6:30 – 9:30 PM Pacific: February 26, March 5, March 12 and March 19, 2015.

All students receive mp3 recordings of the classes, plus: 1) mp3 recordings of the last year’s session of the course; 2) additional mp3 audio; 3) additional video files, including a one hour lecture; 4) text files, with both required reading and 5) a much larger folder of supplemental/additional reading  (pdf and Word).

Most people are interested in the paranormal phenomena we classify as ”ghostly”: Apparitions, Hauntings and Poltergeists.  Many are interested in understanding their own experiences and the experiences of others.  Many are intensely interested in gaining the skills and knowledge necessary to be an effective investigator of such things:  a Ghost Hunter.

This class is a guide to field investigations–ghost hunting–based on the 130+ years of field investigation and research in psychical research and parapsychology. Attendees will gain the basic skills and understanding for investigation of ghosts, poltergeists, haunted places and related psychic experiences.  The class will include the models of what these things are (from the field of parapsychology), how the scientific and psychic approaches can mesh together, and how to assess a situation, investigate it, and resolve the case to the satisfaction of the people having the experiences (and hopefully to the satisfaction of the ghosts, when they’re involved).

You will learn about: Apparitions, hauntings and poltergeists: differences and similarities;

What else can make a “ghost”;The investigative process, from initial call to resolution;

Technology & Psychics in ghost hunting;

How the techniques of the professionals differ from those of the amateurs;

Psychic potential for investigators;

The ethics of paranormal investigating;

How his investigations have affected Auerbach’s own personal outlook on life;

The deep (and necessary) connections between apparitions, hauntings and poltergeists and other psychic experiences and abilities, and why a ghost hunter or paranormal investigator absolutely needs an understanding of the findings of Parapsychology in order to both conduct a thorough investigation and come to at least a range of reasonable conclusions – and to understand the “why” of the phenomena.

Naturally, the class will include some of Auerbach’s more exciting cases.

Classes are held at HCH Institute, 3702 Mt. Diablo Blvd, Lafayette, CA 94549

To register: 1) Call HCH Institute at 925-283-3941 OR 2) email Paul Meredith, paul@hypnotherapytraining.com

Want to be involved in a paranormal TV project?

Interested in EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena)? Want to support and participate in the most scientific and controlled experiment to see if spirits really can communicate this way? Want to be part of the video series being shot around it?
Go to https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/afterlifefiles/the-afterlife-files to find out about the project and learn how you can be part of this potential history making series.

If the goal is reached, and based on my conversations with Todd Moster, this is going to be one of the best things anyone in or around the paranormal community (and para-TV) has conceived of, and truly on the path of Science.

Please pass this on!!!

Learn what Parapsychologists and Psychical Researchers have learned about “INVESTIGATING APPARITIONS, HAUNTINGS & POLTERGEISTS” in the 8 week online class starting January 26th, 2015, through the Rhine Education Center. Taught by parapsychologist/paranormal investigator and author Loyd Auerbach (and web-guy here at Mindreader.com), this course covers the basic skills and concepts needed for investigation of ghosts, poltergeists, haunted places and related psychic experiences from the scientific (parapsychological) perspective, as well as the theories and models of the phenomena. Also covered are techniques for resolving cases of ghostly phenomena and experiences.

This is an online class with a weekly webinar — recorded for playback so you can watch/listen live or at any time after. It is also a class on a more academic model, meaning there are weekly discussion questions (to discuss with your fellow students and the instructor), and a couple of quizzes.

IS YOUR CHILD PSYCHIC? An Introduction to Children and Psychic Abilities: Wednesday, January 21st, 6:30-9:30 PM  $50

Children are by nature, more psychic than adults. Unfortunately, our culture and educational system seem to shut down their natural abilities early on.

This special introductory seminar will help you find out how you can determine what psychic talents your child might have, and how to nurture and develop them, as well as help them (and yourself) deal with what they actually experience. Along the way, you’ll also learn much about how you, too, can re-develop your own buried abilities. We’ll look at the range of psychic abilities demonstrated by children (and researched over the years), from ESP to mind over matter (PK) to the ability to see or otherwise sense ghosts and spirits.

We’ll also touch on the relationship between poltergeist cases and adolescents.

For those without their own kids, this class will provide much about the research findings with kids and psychic abilities, findings that will help you with your own psychic development.

For those who are more interested in paranormal investigations where there are children involved who have witnessed hauntings and apparitions, we’ll discuss how to work with kids to alleviate their fear and best conduct the investigation.

FULL CLASSES

Precognition and Psychokinesis: January 15, 22, 29, February 5 & 12, 6:30 to 9:30 PM    $275 including mp3 recordings of the past year’s session, mp3s of current class, additional text, audio and a video workshop – on DVD-Rom.                 MIND, MATTER AND TIME: How Our Psychic Abilities Affect the World Around Us, Pierce the Veil of Time and Help Create the Future. In this six week course, Loyd Auerbach will discuss two fascinating psychic abilities, Psychokinesis (mind over matter) and Precognition. In addition, he’ll delve into theories of Time and Space that connect Psychokinesis (PK) and Precognition.

In relation to PK, he’ll delve into: what parapsychologists and many others know today about PK, how it manifests itself, and how it hints at the broader interconnectedness between our consciousnesses and the Universe around us. There will be an experiential PK segment to this class, working with a method for PK developed by the late (great) science and science fiction writer Martin Caidin,, himself capable of PK.

As for Precognition, Auerbach will cover questions such as: Can anyone really predict the Future? How? Is there really a Future that can be predicted? What is Time? Can we change the Future? Why do so many psychics miss on their predictions? What about the premonitions of the average person?

Ghost Hunting: Investigating the Paranormal: February 19, 26, March 5, 12, 6:30 to 9:30  $250, including DVD-rom with recordings of past years’ course offering in mp3, lots of additional text, audio and video. Student also get mp3s of current class.

Special Offer: Mentoring for Investigators, Psychics & Mediums

I’ve been mentoring some paranormal investigators, psychics and mediums over the last few years, via phone and Skype as well as in-person here in the Bay Area without raising my rates. But now it’s time to do so….

However, if you’re interested in getting the old rate for mentoring, contact me before December 31st — email profparanormal@gmail.com). Book me for time in 2015 before the end of 2014 and keep the old rate (and book me for multiple hours and get a special rate). Pre-paid time can be used at any time in the future, all at once or a little at a time.

I am willing to have a short (20 minute or so) phone or Skype call with you for free to see what your needs are.

With investigators, my mentoring is usually a combination of upping their know-how about parapsychological field investigation methods (the real methods, not what you get from TV shows or people who “teach” what they learned from TV). Often the mentoring is in the form of me providing detailed feedback on the cases they’ve either done in the past or have going now.

With psychics/mediums or fledgling sensitives, my mentoring is usually getting them a grounding in parapsychology and/or some work on psychic protection and/or work on being able to better assess the information they’re currently getting. A couple have worked with me on increasing their sensitivities (while at the same time being able to “turn it off” when necessary), and more than one have worked with me on how to best communicate with the public/clients and skeptics.

If you’re not sure right now, but this sounds interesting and you want to “hold” my rates, contact me and we’ll work something out.
