1. Make Your Own Spirit Board
Thur, 7/26, 2pm to 3:30pm

There are a lot of misconceptions about Spirit Boards. Scary movies would have us believe they are used to channel negative spirits, and many people are even afraid to touch them for fear of inviting an evil entity into their home. This could not be further from the truth! Spirit Boards are just like any other method of Spirit communication. They are a tool that can be used to receive messages from Spirit, and harbor no special powers or strength as objects on their own. In fact, Spirit Boards are so simple, anyone can make them!

In this enlightening class, you will learn how to create your own Spirit Board, discover the misconceptions and myths surrounding them, and learn the proper technique for using a Spirit Board for Spirit communication. This course will give you practical tools you can use to make Spirit communication an intriguing group activity, no psychic or mediumship experience required. $25 in advance, $30 at door – includes supplies. At The Spirit University, 383 Braden Ave, Sarasota, 34243.

2. Table Tipping Workshop
Thur, 7/26, 3:30pm to 5pm

Table-tipping (also known as table-turning) is a type of physical mediumship technique. You might be rewarded with some sort of phenomena; sometimes the sitters will be startled by rapping and knocking noises, and the table might vibrate and eventually begin to move.

It’s also possible that the table (as it did in the days of the home circles) will behave as with some intelligence. Once the group has begun to experience strange effects, it may be possible to ask questions and receive knocks, raps and even tilts in reply.

A popular pastime of the home spirit circles. Not only entertaining, it can be a remarkable method of examining the psychic abilities of the average human mind. All serious paranormal investigators should explore this weird and wonderful past time and see what it’s possible to learn about others — and yourself. $25 in advance, $30 at door. At The Spirit University, 383 Braden Ave, Sarasota, 34243.

3. Haunted Hotel
Thur, 7/26, 7pm to 9pm

Like something out of a horror film, this haunted hotel has an incredible history, and many spirits roving its halls. Experience spirit communication in a real haunted hotel, and learn about the spirits residing there, from a security guard who still roams the halls, to the hundreds of orbs that have been captured around the building. The building was formerly known as the “Pink Palace,” where a resident leapt to his death from the high roof. Undisclosed Location. $29 in advance, $39 at the door.

4. Historic Ringling Estate
Fri, July 27, 2pm to 5pm

Grave Tour with Paranormal Investigator ESP & Author Kim Cool

Tour the beautiful grounds of the Ringling Estate and learn the history of the family who once resided there – and who many say continue to hang their hat to this day! You will have the opportunity to see the resting places of John Ringling, Mable Ringling, and Ida North, where a mysterious mist has been reported rising from the graves. These incredible grounds are well worth the visit, but only during this 3-Day adventure will you have the opportunity to learn the exclusive *inside information* on the spirits that make this historic estate their continuing home.

Joining us will be ESP, El Con Society of the Paranormal. Formed in 2009 by Dr. John Head and Terri Rohde, in 2015 they became a member of True Ghost Stories TV Series, Team Florida. In 2016 ESP transformed into Explorers of Spirit Phenomena. ESP’s mission is to bridge the gap between the living world and the spirit world. Dr. John Head has recently joined the spirit world, leaving Terri Rohde to carry on the bridge of communication.

We will also learn about the world of the paranormal in haunts throughout Florida from Kim Cool, author of Ghost Stories of Sarasota, Ghost Stories of Venice, and Ghost Stories of Clearwater & St. Petersburg. An expert in the legends of the paranormal throughout Florida, Kim Cool will be sharing some of the incredible ghost stories she has unearthed in this enthralling presentation. You will get an insider’s look of Florida’s most haunted locations and have the opportunity to ask your most pressing questions about those from the other side who inhabit the sunshine state. — Starts at The Spirit University, 373 Braden Ave, Sarasota, 34243. $25 in advance, $35 at door.
