Stories of the Supernatural

Stories of the Supernatural: True Encounters: Mediums, Ghosts, Consciousness & Science

Thursday February 27, 2014
7:00 PM
Please join us as Gail Godfrey, author of A Paranormal Reader, recounts scores of real-life tales of the supernatural.

She then sits them alongside fundamental science, medical research, and paranormal history to create a mesmerizing primer of the unexplained. Whether you’re a graduate student of the supernatural or an apprentice, her program has something new to tell you about the dimensions beyond.

Listening to the wounded cry 150 years after the Battle of Gettysburg ended, seeing solid-as-you-and-I dead people, hearing mediums reveal family secrets, voices without bodies, spirits who drop by, precognition, remote viewers, mystic visions, near-death experiences, out-of-body travels, negative entities, spirit rescuers, animal communicators, the afterlife, higher selves, orbs, shadow men, columns of light, a lily in the snow, and a photo of an angel. These things defy rationality, but they happen.


Gail Godfrey lives in Caldwell, New Jersey, near historic places and footpaths of the dead. As a child, her parents taught her to see the world beyond, and today she loves nothing more than to gather tales of the true but unexplained. She is the author of A Paranormal Reader published by Merwede Press.
