Psychic Readings by Mark Nelson

Mark Nelson is a psychic medium with clairvoyant, clairaudient and clairsentient abilities. He hears and sees messages from friends and family who have crossed over to the other side. Mark will be conducting gallery readings and will also be available for private sessions by appointment.

 After-Death Communication Workshop

Terri offers a metaphysical perspective on the dying and grieving process via interactive exercises, guided meditations and after-death communication techniques. Terri gently guides participants into contact with the higher realms, where out-of-body experience and death itself are seen as simply the continuation of life in another dimension.

Extraordinary Experiences of the Bereaved
by Louis LaGrand, PhD

Bereaved individuals and bereavement professionals will learn how to implement nine specific survival skills based on the use of memories and the validation of visitations, after-death communications and other extraordinary experiences that can transform belief systems and change one's inner life.    

Dream  Visits: Close Encounters of the Spiritual Kind  by Carla Blowey
Carla shares her prophetic dream about the death of her son Kevin, and the many numinous dreams that offered her forgiveness, healing and spiritual growth. Carla helps you to discern the difference between a “dream visit” and a “grief dream,” and recognize both as valuable tools for reconciling the death of your loved one.

Faces of Grief,  Whispers of Love: Surviving the  loss of a Loved One
by Mitch Carmody

This workshop breaks down current myths in the bereavement process and embraces a unique, humanistic approach to recovering from loss. Mitch's approach to "proactive grieving" turns loss into legacy, and is highly recommended for bereaved individuals and bereavement professionals.

Suicide and the Afterlife
by Anne Puryear

What happens on the Other Side to those who commit suicide, and how can we help with their transition experience? Clear and accurate communication from those who've completed suicide -- or from their spiritual helpers -- brings comfort and understanding to the survivors, and helps to heal the stigma of suicide.

Evidence for Life after Death by Boyce Batey

Explore post-mortem survival evidence, including mediumship, after-death communication, apparitions, spirit photography, electronic voice recordings, deathbed experiences,  hauntings, near-death experiences, out-of-body experiences, mystical experiences, reincarnation and more.

Mediumship 101
by  Mark Ireland
Mark Ireland will share a personal account of his remarkable experiences and validations, received both directly and through mediums. Mark will also partner with a renowned psychic-medium who will share messages with attendees.

Hogan book

Help from the Other Side: Who Is Communicating
with Us, and How? 
by R. Craig Hogan

We  constantly receive inspiration and communication from guides, helpers, and loved ones living in the other planes of life. We just need to be active in communicating with them and open to receiving what they have to say to us.

 Guided Afterlife Connections by Rochelle Wright

Rochelle's Guided Afterlife Connections protocol opens the portal to the afterlife and allows the connection to come directly to the experiencer rather than through Rochelle or any medium activity.

 ADCs, Science and Sacred Writings
by Herb Puryear
People turn to the Bible and science for truth, yet these two sources have denied the evidence of after-death communication. As a scientist and a student of the Bible, Herb will show how and why these great sources have ignored the rich scientific and clear Biblical evidence of ADCs.
