POLTERGEISTS: IN-DEPTH

Poltergeists: In Depth: The term “poltergeist” translates to “noisy ghost,” which is how 16th Century Germans saw the particular physical phenomena when they coined the term. Beginning in the early 20th Century and by the 1950s–based on hundreds of case investigations and research studies–parapsychologists formed a new model: living agent psychokinesis (PK).

Learn why this model holds up so well, how it helps us resolve the situations and how it connects to lab research on PK. Why do some people become poltergeist agents and why are “little poltergeists” so common?

We’ll also consider PK caused by apparent apparitions/entities, how the activity and experiences differ, and why apparitional PK activity is no longer called “poltergeist activity” here in the US.

Finally, we’ll look at the how the living-agent distinction is not necessarily made in other parts of the world, such as the UK, what recent analyses of activity in cases has revealed, and how much poltergeist activity in recent times has actually focused on electronic devices in our lives and happen in small ways to all of us.

With some focus on the work of the late William G. Roll, who formalized the model used for living agent PK, we’ll take a really close look at noisy ghosts!

The class will be recorded, and you will receive the mp3 afterwards, as well as a number of articles and supporting text documents.

My Visit to Pocatello, Idaho

Last week (October 21-26), I spent several days in Pocatello, Idaho, hosted by John and Lisa Brian of SPIRO Paranormal.

My itinerary included a lecture (True Tales of Ghosts & Hauntings) at Idaho State University, a Professor Paranormal Psychic Entertainment Show at a local school, a book signing and a Ghost Hunting class — as well as spending time on the Haunted History tours SPIRO conducted in Pocatello on both Friday and Saturday nights.

Have to say it was a great time, and I really have to thank John and Lisa, as well as Brett Yost and the rest of the SPIRO team for making the trip truly fun.

The ISU lecture made the trip possible, especially with the extras John and Lisa were able to tag on. I hope I get the opportunity to return to Pocatello — the people were very nice and welcoming, and the town was inviting.

I do have to mention that the SPIRO team quite atypical of many of the ghost hunting groups I’ve met. They not only were truly interested in upping their investigation-game by learning whatever I could provide (or point them to as far as other sources are concerned), but also in going back over their methodology and seeing how they can both expand what they’re doing and include more of what my field has learned about investigations and the phenomena since the late 1800s (yes, we’re that old).

Not to mention they are a close knit “family” of investigators, all with a great sense of humor (and many with similar movie and TV interests to my own!)

I plan to stay in close touch with SPIRO and hope to get back to Pocatello, and to see them out here in the Bay Area as well.

If you are in a ghost hunting/paranormal investigation group/team that wants to up your game, contact me to see how we might work out either a visit to your neck of the woods or something special via distant delivery. If you have a local college or corporation that might want to book me for a lecture or Professor Paranormal show, it will probably be easier than you think!

Reincarnation class Thursday night, Aug 7, 2014 — live or by phone

I am offering a one-shot class this Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014, from 6:30 – 9:30 PM Pacific time at HCH Institute in Lafayette, CA.

REINCARNATION: THE BEST EVIDENCE

Well over a billion people on the planet believe in past lives, and in being reborn after their deaths. From religion-based to culture-based beliefs and practices that are quite ancient, to relatively recent work with past life regression and spontaneously recalled past life memories, the evidence–of varying strength–has mounted up.
But how do these forms of evidence stack up scientifically? What are the best forms of evidence and cases of reincarnation?
In this one-shot class, parapsychologist Loyd Auerbach will survey all forms of evidence for (and against) reincarnation and past (and future) lives. He will focus on evidence/cases of young children who remember previous lives–cases investigated by researchers at the University of Virginia, the University of Iceland, and several more institutions from the last 60+ years.
He will discuss the value of the other evidence, including past life regression: where it’s good, where it falls short and where (and how) such practices have other positive value beyond evidence for reincarnation.
PRE-REGISTER, PLEASE!
Thursday August 7th, 6:30-930 PM Cost: $50
Contact HCH either by phone: 925 283-3941, or email Paul at: Paul@HypnotherapyTraining.com.
This class is available to attend in person at HCH or by telephone. Attendees will receive an mp3 recording of the entire class (within a week) and will receive additional text materials.
Please specify when you register if you will be on site or conference calling into the classes.

GHOST STORIES NIGHT on June 12, 2014. 7-9 PM

PROFESSOR PARANORMAL’S TRUE TALES OF GHOSTS & HAUNTINGS
Loyd Auerbach, Director of The Office of Paranormal Investigations, has been investigating cases of apparitions, hauntings and poltergeists and other psychic phenomena for over 3 decades.
In this presentation, you’ll hear him tell the stories of some of his more exciting and perplexing ghost hunts, including some of his more unusual cases such as the case of the couple haunted by amorous spirits, the bartender ghost, the tale of the apparition of a living woman, the peeping tom ghost, and the amazing case that convinced him that ghosts really do exist. Naturally he’ll talk about his most extensive investigations dealing with the Moss Beach Distillery and the USS Hornet.
He’ll talk briefly about how the actual methods and tools of real investigators differ from what one sees on TV, how the phenomena connects to psychic experiences and abilities, bizarre – though normal – explanations that are not paranormal, what parapsychologists think these things really are, and why “fear of ghosts” is never on his mind.
Loyd Auerbach will leave you excited, mystified, entertained and perhaps … even a bit creeped out (though more likely laughing).
Appropriate for just about anyone, including teens and kids over 10 who “ain’t afraid o’ no ghost!”
When: Thursday, June 12, 2014 from 7 – 9 PM Pacific.
Cost: $30 (and you’ll receive an mp3 recording of the session with a few days via email at no additional charge). Attend by phone if you can’t come in person!

New Publishing Class Session, June 17, 2014

New Class Session of Have You Ever Wanted to Write (and Publish) a Book?
Tuesday, June, 7-9:30 PM at HCH Institute, Lafayette, CA (or attend by phone!)

If you have ever thought about writing a book (fiction or nonfiction), or publishing something you already have written, you may have hit a number of stumbling blocks – especially in the publishing steps. In this introduction to writing and publishing a book, you’ll learn some basic tricks to getting a book together, written, and published.

HCH Instructor and author Loyd Auerbach has been teaching Publishing (and Media Skills and Public Speaking) at JFK University since 1990, and offers a detailed overview of the mainstream publishing process from outline/proposal to publication, with a ton of practical tips.

But perhaps more important are the new forms of self-publishing, print on demand, and ebook publishing – all of which can be done professionally for well under $100.

Besides creating a potential income stream, having a book can enhance your business and even credibility with the audience (and potential clients) you are trying to reach. Thanks to the new forms of publishing and distribution, getting a book together and out is no longer a daunting process.

Come with your own questions and book topics to discuss.

About the Instructor: Loyd Auerbach, MS, is the author of 8 books (with a 9th coming in May) and numerous articles for magazines. He has been on faculty at JFK University since 1983, and HCH since 2006. Besides being a parapsychologist, author, speaker, psychic entertainer and chocolatier, he works as a coach for authors and businesspeople who need help with public speaking, media skills, and publicity and promotion. His media appearances number in the thousands! Bring your book ideas and outlines for discussion and advice and discussion of next steps!

Cost: $50
Friday May 2, 7:00 to 9:30 at HCH, 3702 Mt. Diablo Blvd., Lafayette, CA

Call or email HCH to register 925-283-3941  /  paul@hypnotherapytraining.com

NOTE: There will be a more hands-on workshop as a follow-up to this class. If interested in help with your book proposal, or just want more than this class offers (drawn from Auerbach’s years of teaching publishing and media skills/book promotion at JFK University), be sure to contact Loyd Auerbach at profparanormal@gmail.com

CHOCOLATE & MINDREADING EVENT!

This purely entertaining (and tasty) performance will be at the intimate setting of HCH Institute, and is limited to 20 people attending.

You’ll first be sated with high end chocolate samples as Loyd Auerbach, Chocolatier & Chocolate Maven (of Haunted By Chocolate) guides you through a tasting. Hear about the history, health benefits, variety and making of the Food of the Gods while you are guided in tasting various samples. Get the background on the Chocolate Makers whose wares are being sampled.

After a short intermission, chocolatier (and mild-mannered parapsychologist, ghost hunter and author) Loyd will switch identities to Professor Paranormal, a mentalist sharing the humorous and mysterious side of what looks to be psychic feats of mindreading, prediction, and more.

In the demonstrations, he’ll “read” the faces and voices of audience members to determine thought of items and whether individuals are telling the truth or bluffing. He’ll predict a tabloid-type headline moments before an audience member randomly creates it. He’ll draw what participants draw and see what they see though what they’re doing is hidden from him – and more!

And don’t miss his mutant psychic pet!
