Hungry Ghost Festival and Psychic Fair

The Hungry Ghost Festival marks the time of year when tables are turned and the deceased are believed to visit the living. The gates of the afterlife are thrown open and ghosts are free to roam the earth in search of food, entertainment and mischief.

Though the Hungry Ghost Festival gets some acclaim as the “Chinese Halloween,” the holiday actually offers a great opportunity to teach kids about caring for the destitute and less fortunate.

The Hungry Ghost Festival marks the time of year when tables are turned and the deceased are believed to visit the living. The gates of the afterlife are thrown open and ghosts are free to roam the earth in search of food, entertainment and mischief.

Though the Hungry Ghost Festival gets some acclaim as the “Chinese Halloween,” the holiday actually offers a great opportunity to teach kids about caring for the destitute and less fortunate.

ABOUT
Whether we hear it or not, our ancestors still speak to us from where they are, in our dreams and in the coincidences of our daily life. They have wisdom to pass on to us spiritually. We are the ancestors, and they are us. There is a lot of power on your side.

Listen, they will speak.

The ones who have left us are never truly gone, and many cultures throughout the world hold true to such a perspective.

Please join us for the Hungry Ghost Festival Psychic Fair and Open House at The Spirit University where you can learn about this holiday which is a rich part of the culture and traditions celebrated in China, Indonesia, Taiwan, and other Asian countries.

The unique festival is also referred to as Ghost Day in which ghosts and spirits, including those of deceased ancestors, come to visit the realm of the living. Rituals and practices of this multi-cultural time include leaving an empty place at the dinner table, sharing a meal, and exchanging stories and memories of the deceased. Another tradition is the purchasing or creation of lanterns which are released onto water, with the belief that this act gives direction to lost souls trying to find their way to the ancestors and other deities.

This is a time to reflect upon what all human beings share, a desire to connect and remember those we have loved and demonstrate they have not been forgotten — they are the shoulders on which we stand, those who laid the groundwork for the opportunities we enjoy today. It is also about honoring, remembering, celebrating an aspect of ourselves, wisdom that is being passed on to us and that we feel called to reclaim.

At the Hungry Ghost Festival, The Spirit University will have intuitive readers on hand to give connection, comfort and guidance. There will be energetic healers of different modalities to sooth your soul, mind and body. We will also have a series of enriching and informative talks and mini-workshops on many metaphysical yet practical topics to help enhance your spiritual understanding and life.

Along with the fun, we believe in giving back to the community and finding ways to express and honor our generosity and kindness. By feeling good about helping and giving in small ways, you may find a greater sense of personal satisfaction and growth; it feels good to help others.

We invite you and yours to be a part of this distinctive and noble tradition celebrated on our pale blue dot orbiting the sun and connect with other seekers like yourself. Learn something new and remember your own loved ones and inner sun with honor and love. Readings and healings are only $25. The $5 general admission includes all lectures and mini-workshops.

Tarot Practice Circle

* Every Wednesday *

The Tarot is a wonderful tool that can cultivate your intuition. Due to the vast amount of information etched into each of seventy-eight cards in a Tarot deck, an individual could spend a lifetime examining the images and becoming an expert in their meanings. To become a good Tarot reader you need to practice in a safe environment with no judgments. The best kind of practice is with a warm loving community of friends who share your interests and passion for the Tarot. We will find together unique ways to play with some of the meanings to strengthen ones knowledge of most of the symbols and other pictograms within each deck of cards.

This workshop will offer a bit of education and advice to further your knowledge of the Tarot, the bulk of the session will be spent practicing. Before you leave you will not only receive a reading from your peers, but you will also deliver one. Come with your favorite deck of Tarot cards! With Barbara Harrison.

An Evening of Reiki Healing

Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. These brief sessions are offered through non-touch, with the practitioner’s hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head and front of the torso and sometimes limbs to a fully clothed recipient.

“I feel very refreshed and seem to be thinking more clearly.” “I think I fell asleep.” “I can’t believe how hot your hands got!” “I feel relaxed.” “My headache is gone.” These are some of things people typically say after a Reiki session. If you have never experienced Reiki now is the time to try it. Facilitated by Barbara Harrison.

Energetic Chakra Balancing

Do you have difficulty concentrating, sleep problems, feeling helpless, not able to express yourself, lack motivation, close off to others, not able to accomplish goals? It’s possible that your chakras are out of alignment. Maintaining a healthy body and mind that are perfectly in balance with one another is a possible endeavor.

The 7 chakras in the body are energy centers that start at the top of your head and end at the bottom of your spine. They have a direct impact on your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being, and may regulate all parts of your bodily system, influencing everything from emotional processing to resistance to disease. Using a variety of modalities, we will work to clear energetic blockages and find alignment balance. With Barbara Harrison.

Being a part of a broader community is a great way to bring people together and help them find their higher purpose.

You may discover new techniques and ideas to work into your own teachings/practices, or ways to fine-tune what you already have going. All are welcome.

Color / Sound / Consciousness = REAL YOU

Open to the world of frequencies of your individual Biofield, the energy field once known as an “Aura.” It is being affected by the rising Schumann Resonance, or Earth’s Heartbeat. As the chakra colors change, accompanying magical musical sounds within you are present and changing. These frequencies offer many joyful experiences when balanced with Earth’s heartbeat. The Biofield is composed of 7+ chakras and matching musical tones. We have isolated the six in the body and the crown chakra color/tones to an ancient scale known as Solfeggio and have balanced these using the Angelic Solfeggio tuning forks. New Thought frequencies coming from the “world of opposites” yield beautiful self-empowerment and a clearer understanding of unconditional self love. Inner colors and the high percentage of inner water “movements” are found to create physical sensations and feelings. Color and sound moving through your living tissue is now known as Inner Chromotology.

You will experience the strengthening power of (1) new color and (2) new sound opening you to (3) new thought and (4) new feeling sensation connections. Learn how you make all of your feelings, and begin to make new ones.With Lily Dale Assembly Presenter Kathryn Pape. RSVP>

Due to the vast amount of information etched into each of seventy-eight cards in a Tarot deck, an individual could spend a lifetime examining the images and becoming an expert in their meanings. To become a good Tarot reader you need to practice in a safe environment with no judgments. The best kind of practice is with a warm loving community of friends who share your interests and passion for the Tarot. We will find together unique ways to play with some of the meanings to strengthen ones knowledge of most of the symbols and other pictograms within each deck of cards.

This workshop will offer a bit of education and advice to further your knowledge of the Tarot, the bulk of the session will be spent practicing. Before you leave you will not only receive a reading from your peers, but you will also deliver one. Come with your favorite deck of Tarot cards! With Barbara Harrison.

Happiness Blueprint and Zen Meditation

Happiness comes from within and we often get so lost in our busy lives that we forget what is important, or that happiness is a choice. We’re living in a fast paced society and we’re overstimulated.

Happiness Blueprint is a simple concept: in order to have a happy life from the inside out, we need our lives to be meaningful and fulfilling. We will go over different aspects in our lives and discover the main question we need to ask ourselves. We will also practice a Zen meditation together. Easy to do and simple to follow. Come follow the path to your own happiness and peace. With Dr. Tiffany Nguyen. RSVP>

Energetic Chakra Balancing

Do you have difficulty concentrating, sleep problems, feeling helpless, not able to express yourself, lack motivation, close off to others, not able to accomplish goals? It’s possible that your chakras are out of alignment. Maintaining a healthy body and mind that are perfectly in balance with one another is a possible endeavor.

The 7 chakras in the body are energy centers that start at the top of your head and end at the bottom of your spine. They have a direct impact on your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being, and may regulate all parts of your bodily system, influencing everything from emotional processing to resistance to disease. Using a variety of modalities, we will work to clear energetic blockages and find alignment balance. With Barbara Harrison.

How to Use Pendulum Testing for Clarity, Confidence, and Peace of Mind

You can deepen self-realization and find truth and peace of mind in your life using a process called Pendulum Dowsing. Learn how to tap into your own Inner Wisdom for the answers you need… anytime, anywhere.

  • Select, train, cleanse and care for your pendulum.
  • Prepare yourself to connect with the Universal Dowsing System and for each pendulum session.
  • Use your pendulum to communicate goals and intentions to the subconscious mind.
  • Use your pendulum to receive guidance and information from your Inner Wisdom.
  • Formulate proper questions for getting yes-or-no answers, and working with charts.
  • Determine what foods are safe to consume, or food sensitivities.

Due to the vast amount of information etched into each of seventy-eight cards in a Tarot deck, an individual could spend a lifetime examining the images and becoming an expert in their meanings. To become a good Tarot reader you need to practice in a safe environment with no judgments. The best kind of practice is with a warm loving community of friends who share your interests and passion for the Tarot. We will find together unique ways to play with some of the meanings to strengthen ones knowledge of most of the symbols and other pictograms within each deck of cards.

This workshop will offer a bit of education and advice to further your knowledge of the Tarot, the bulk of the session will be spent practicing. Before you leave you will not only receive a reading from your peers, but you will also deliver one. Come with your favorite deck of Tarot cards! With Barbara Harrison.

This inspirational workshop is for seekers of all kinds yearning to find some of the answers of life. Reuniting with the ancestors and the heavenly guides, teachers, and protectors at our beck and call. To begin (or continue) a timeless classical relationship in a caring faith with the divine and with oneself in a splendid union of grace. With this workshop for novices you’ll discover a wonderland of the soul. It is one of many gifts of the heavens by channeled, written divination. For others, you’ll continue your blessed voyage of self-discovery one understanding at a time by rekindling your divinity and humanity in one fell swoop through channeling beautiful inspirations. To find love and peace and become them again for another moment.  With Professor Ivan Pozo-Illas.

See Auras and Eminations 12:30-2 pm

Every person has an “aura” about them, an energy that is uniquely theirs many intuitively sense and unmistakable. We all have this ability to not only “get a feel” for someone’s energy, but to see it as well. Discover the definition of what an aura is, and its relations to the chakras. Includes simple exercises to open your third eye and and let your vision behold. With Pensieve of the Soul Professor Mary Linn Clarke.

Magic, Methods, Yesteryear of Mediumship  2-3:30 pm

Delve into ancient accounts of spirit communication and the exciting origins of Spiritualism.  You’ll also learn  techniques used to communicate with Spirits right here and right now. Unfold and learn what type of spirit communicators are in practice today.  Come and let Professor Binn’s History protoge put the spell of mediumship on you! With Professor Shirley Smolko.

Eye of The Infinite Universe  3:30-5 pm

The Ritual of a Metaphysical Vision. A divine eye (in Spanish, Ojo de Dios) is a spiritual, colorful and votive object made by weaving a design out of yarn upon wood. The spiritual eye of the Ojos de Dios is thought by some believers to have the power to see and understand things unknown to the physical eye. During Spanish colonial times in New Mexico, from the 16th to the 19th centuries, Ojos de Dios (God’s Eye) were placed where people worked, or where they walked along a trail. The Ojo de Dios or God’s eye is a ritual tool that was believed to protect those while they pray, be a magical object, and an ancient cultural symbol evoking the weaving motif and its spiritual associations. The Huichol Indians call theirs sikuli, which means “the power to see and understand things unknown.” With Divination Professor Barbara Harrison.

Nearly Headless Ghost Stories  6-7 pm

Ghost Stories fill the imagination with fear and questions as to what is real and what is not. You are invited to hear first-hand ghost stories by this professor, plus childhood experiences and stories told by others. Tales based on imagination rather than fact… or are they really? There’s a reason why ghost stories, witch-hunts and tales of haunting and folklore from days past are some of the most coveted and interesting tales of all time. People can’t get enough of hearing about the spooky sightings and downright frightening legends passed down through generations. And when these narratives are taken right out of the pages of history, its human nature to be highly intrigued to hear about the truth behind these spooky events. With Divination Professor Barbara Harrison.

Into the Paranormal  7-8:30 pm

What do orbs, spears, balls of light vs ghostly mist, and ectoplasm have in common? What are the characteristics and appearance of ghosts or spirits? What is a haunting? What causes a place to become haunted? The desire to understand more about the spirit world is nearly as old as the human race itself. Evidence indicates the ancients believed that some form of communication between the living and the dead is possible. We will learn about the modern approaches to ghost and spirit hunting, and focus on our desire to understand more about the spirit world. See photographs from real paranormal investigations and spiritual encounters. The professor is a certified paranormal investigator and parapsychology specialist. Growing up in a haunted house, her “imaginary friends,” never went away. She has seen and felt the presence of spiritual beings all her life. With Department of Mysteries Professor AnnMarie Touchette.

The Grey Lady Séance  8:30-9:30 pm

Spirits are among us and they want to talk to you! Spirit talkiing boards have been used since the early 20th century to communicate with those who have passed on. As a group we will guide participants on how  to connect with those on other side in a safe, supportive environment. See what messages come through! Come join this enchanting talking table experience with the specters of The Spirit University’s School of Wizardry! With Charms Professor Helen Greene.

Wizarding World – Sunday

5 Magical Talismans for Transformation  10:30 am -12 pm

Transforming Pain into Power. For all of recorded history magicians and wizards have sought the secret of alchemy to turn base metal into gold. However, true “gold” is to be found in the experience of patience and kindness; goodness and mercy; acceptance and forbearance; wisdom and clarity; gentleness and beauty; selflessness and nobility; benevolence and generosity. For years we have been told, “You create your own reality!” and, “Change your thinking, change your life!” And yet, years later, many of us are still experiencing a reality that is less than we desire. For a long time we have thought that if we could just “get the guy, get the girl, get the car, get the job, get the house, get the spouse, get the kids, get the better job, get the better house, get the promotion, get the grandkids, get the office in the corner…” on and on it goes. And still we feel empty. In this class we will discover 5 alchemical talismans that, if used in the right way and in the right order, will change the “base metal” of a painful, unsatisfactory reality into the “gold” of a joyful reality; the “base metal” of struggle and suffering into the “gold” of a life of ease and grace. Join us for this alchemical journey of reality re-creation! With Charms of Change Professor Richard Powell.

13 Easy Steps for Empath and Psychic Shields  1-2:30 pm

Ever feel like you miss the best part of a party? Or, worse, that something feels off when you arrive? You are probably picking up on other people’s energy. There is nothing more important than psychic protection! Learn to ward off the “dark side” and control your own energy with the simple techniques of grounding, cloaking, energetic domes, talismans, and more. Includes chakra clearing and “growing a tree” during this session. With Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor Pam Jacobs.

The Art of Divination: How to Interpret Messages   2:30-4 pm

Enter the world of divination and learn simple ways to strengthen your intuitive abilities. Explore knowledge of the potential future, hidden significance, and cause of events. We’ll take a look at many popular types of  tools including: Astrology, Numerology, Tarot and Oracle cardsDowsing using a pendulum or dowsing rod, Lithomancy using stones and crystals, Scrying using a crystal ball, fire or water and Tasseomancy using tea leaves. Once you learn to raise your frequency and consciousness by opening your heart (going into heart coherence) and opening your mind (shifting into the theta brain wave) you can connect to your own higher self and source, allowing you to find answers to your questions for yourself and others, or to simply receive life guidance. These methods require study and practice to achieve proficiency and accuracy. Develop your own intuition and inner guidance, for the tools are just that—tools to point you in the right direction and help you develop your own intuition and inner guidance. Please bring crystals, any tarot/oracle cards or pendulums if you have them, a pen and notebook. With Divination Professor Indira.

Scrying: The Ancient Art of Second Sight  4-5 pm

The word “scrying” historically comes from the Old English word “descry” which means “to reveal.” Scrying is about revealing the unseen through the use of our in-born Second Sight — our capacity to see things that can’t usually be perceived through our five senses. Scrying helps us to get in touch with our unconscious minds: the realm of the soul. This technique allows us to receive meaningful visions and messages. You may receive personal guidance, prophecy, revelation, or inspiration. Once you learn the technique, there are many forms you can use. In the Wizard of Oz movie, the witch gazed into her crystal ball and watched live-action scenes of Dorothy trying to get to Emerald City. This fantasy was based on the ancient art of Second Sight. While in focus, a crystal gazer may see different images: concrete pictures, symbols or vague impressions. What these images convey is information. Some people have describe the experience of being “drawn into” the orb, or feeling a bending of time while gazing. The crystal ball is used as a tool to focus and direct your intuitive and psychic abilities. Crystal balls are fascinating. Their structure and piezoelectric properties make them great tools for looking into life’s secrets. The psychic who learns how to effectively read crystal balls may tap into mysterious energies than can provide guidance for many questions. Includes your own crystal bowl to take home. With Oracle Professor Victoria Ackerman.

Tarot Practice Circle

* Every Wednesday *

The Tarot is a wonderful tool that can cultivate your intuition. Due to the vast amount of information etched into each of seventy-eight cards in a Tarot deck, an individual could spend a lifetime examining the images and becoming an expert in their meanings. To become a good Tarot reader you need to practice in a safe environment with no judgments. The best kind of practice is with a warm loving community of friends who share your interests and passion for the Tarot. We will find together unique ways to play with some of the meanings to strengthen ones knowledge of most of the symbols and other pictograms within each deck of cards.

This workshop will offer a bit of education and advice to further your knowledge of the Tarot, the bulk of the session will be spent practicing. Before you leave you will not only receive a reading from your peers, but you will also deliver one. Come with your favorite deck of Tarot cards! With Barbara Harrison.

An Evening of Reiki Healing

Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. These brief sessions are offered through non-touch, with the practitioner’s hands placed and held on a series of locations on the head and front of the torso and sometimes limbs to a fully clothed recipient.

“I feel very refreshed and seem to be thinking more clearly.” “I think I fell asleep.” “I can’t believe how hot your hands got!” “I feel relaxed.” “My headache is gone.” These are some of things people typically say after a Reiki session. If you have never experienced Reiki now is the time to try it. Facilitated by Barbara Harrison.

Energetic Chakra Balancing

Do you have difficulty concentrating, sleep problems, feeling helpless, not able to express yourself, lack motivation, close off to others, not able to accomplish goals? It’s possible that your chakras are out of alignment. Maintaining a healthy body and mind that are perfectly in balance with one another is a possible endeavor.

The 7 chakras in the body are energy centers that start at the top of your head and end at the bottom of your spine. They have a direct impact on your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being, and may regulate all parts of your bodily system, influencing everything from emotional processing to resistance to disease. Using a variety of modalities, we will work to clear energetic blockages and find alignment balance. With Barbara Harrison.
