Women in the Paranormal

Starts at $65

Women have been part of the paranormal since the beginning… so why does no one know their names?

Demystifying the Ouija

Starts at $60

Thanks to Hollywood and modern paranormal reality TV, Ouija boards have gotten a terrifying reputation. But up until the mid-20th Century, it was seen as merely a game. Learn how the Ouija board was used as a viable way to communicate with the dead within certain groups, how Ouija-mania was used to imprison innocent women in the 1920s, how Ouija became evil, and how modern-day paranormal investigators are trying to clear the name of the Ouija board.

To book:

The Spiritualists and the Suffragists

Starts at $60

Learn a brief history of the Spiritualist Movement (which started right here in Western New York!), the Fox Sisters (pictured here), and the evolution of mediumship as the 19th Century transformed into the 20th Century. We’ll look at how physical mediumship was a viable job for women in a time when opportunities were scarce and how the Spiritualist Movement connected to the Suffragist and Women’s Rights Movement.
