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!

CANCELLED: CHOCOLATE & MINDREADING EVENT: June 14th, 2014 in Lafayette, CA

NOTE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. ANOTHER SHOW WILL BE ADDED THIS SUMMER.

CHOCOLATE & MINDREADING EVENT!

Come to HCH Institute in Lafayette, CA for a special event/show on Saturday, June 14 at 8PM featuring a guided tasting of exceptional chocolates followed immediately by a performance of psychic entertainment.

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!

This special evening of Chocolate & Mindreading will last just over 2 hours.

Date/Time: Saturday JUNE 14, 2014 starting promptly at 8 PM. Please arrive by 7:45 if you do not already have tickets.
Location: HCH Institute’s Soul Haven Room. 3702 Mt. Diablo Blvd., Lafayette, CA.

$30 in advance / $35 at the door (see below for reservation info)

Professor Paranormal — who, in his other identity is not so mild-mannered parapsychologist, ghost hunter and author Loyd Auerbach — is 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!

This purely entertaining performance will be in the intimate living-room setting of HCH Institute, and is limited to 25 people attending. You’ll be jaw-dropping amazed (and laughing most of the time).

Loyd Auerbach, Professor Paranormal, straddles both sides of the psychic fence. As a psychic entertainer, he’s performed mentalism for over 20 years, including a show called “Seance Fiction Theater.” As a parapsychologist, he’s known all over the world as an expert on psychic phenomena — especially ghosts and hauntings. He teaches parapsychology courses both in Lafayette at HCH Institute and for Atlantic University, is on the faculty of JFK University, is the author of 8 books on the paranormal, and is a member of the Board of the Rhine Research Center. He is also on the advisory boards of the Forever Family Foundation (and 2013-2014 President) and the Windbridge Institute, both of which support (and conduct) scientific research on spirit mediumship.
