Mentoring for Paranormal Investigators and Ghost Hunters

Loyd Auerbach will be offering mentoring for individuals and groups/teams of investigators and ghost hunters beginning September 2012.

Rather than formal set courses, this mentoring will take the form of a program (or one time sessions) allowing people who investigate paranormal activity and haunted locations or go on ghost hunts to discuss and gain guidance where needed on their specific cases, as well as their methodologies, equipment and evidence with an active parapsychologist who specializing in field investigations.

A big part of the mentoring will be to support groups/teams/individuals in their efforts to actually help their clients deal with the phenomena and their experiences, something often lacking in the experience and any of the informal training for ghost hunters/paranormal investigators.

More than that, by doing this on an “as needed” basis, rather than a scheduled course, groups/teams/individuals can come to their mentor when they need clarification, more information, help/support in specific cases, and assessment of their gathered evidence and data (and what to do with it).

Auerbach will also provide support for individuals who may be psychically “sensitive” (but with little experience as a working psychic or medium), and for groups/teams working with those who are sensitive to the paranormal.

Finally, as Loyd Auerbach is connected to various field researchers, experimental parapsychologists, and additional scientists in other fields as well as research organizations, he can also provide referrals to others for “second opinions” or for further information in specialized areas. Auerbach himself has over 30 years field experience and who has been teaching Parapsychology for nearly as long (in both graduate school and for non-academic audiences). In addition, he has the additional insight of someone with background and knowledge in the laboratory studies of ESP, PK and Mediumship, as well as studies of Near Death Experiences, Out of Body Experiences, and paranormal beliefs. He has guided and mentored his own students in their investigative and research work long after they finished their courses with him.

Mentoring will be in the form of phone or Skype calls, email, or in-person consults (the latter for those in the San Francisco Bay Area).

If you are a ghost hunter or paranormal investigator who wishes to bring your work to the next level, or just someone starting out who wants some guidance, contact Loyd Auerbach for more information on his upcoming Paranormal Mentoring Program.

Please note that not everyone will be accepted for mentoring. Candidates will need to have a phone/Skype interview with Prof. Auerbach to determine whether the individual or group fits.
