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.

Pass the class and you’ll be added to the network of investigators for the Office of Paranormal Investigations.

Members of the Rhine Research Center get a discount!

Coming in February: The Science of ESP, an 8 week online class from the Rhine Education Center!




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.

Cost (includes the chocolate): $35 in advance / $40 at the door. Please be aware that we only have seating for 20 people. If you do not purchase tickets in advance, be sure to call Loyd Auerbach before you come over to see if there are any seats left.
