Psychics, Witches, and Ghosts — Oh My!

Paranormals are hot! It seems as if everyone is writing them—and of course, reading them. Not only do paranormal enthusiasts want to be swept away by fantastic, well‑developed characters, and a great plot, they also want the paranormal elements in the story to be believable.

Ray Bradbury said, “The most probable tale can be made believable, if your reader, through his senses, feels certain that he stands at the middle of the events.”

A plethora of books on psychic ability and Witchcraft litters the shelves of bookstores, however, none of these addresses what it actually feels like to receive psychic information.

Published paranormal authors, Debra Glass and Elissa Wilds will provide in‑depth explanations of how these paranormal phenomena work and what it is like to live their magical lives.
In our 45 minute workshop, we will cover:

· Psychic ethics
· Psychic ability fact and fiction
· How to improve your own inner psychic
· Divination tools
· Witch vs. Wiccan beliefs
· Types of Wicca
· Wiccan terminology
· Rituals
· Spells
· Tools of the Witch
· Types of Mediumistic ability
· Mediumistic ability fact and fiction
· Tools of the Medium
· Spirits and ghosts
· Writing believable psychic/Wiccan characters
· Pendulum exercise where we will provide pendulums and guide a divination exercise
