He will delve into the realm of gypsy rituals, ghostly encounters and other mysteries.

He challenges those who dare to enter "the center", and relive the Golden Age of the early-1900s spiritualist movement in this theatrical séance experience. Noted mentalist, Michael Anthony Russo, will present, "The Joy of Palm Reading" at noon - a humorous interactive palm reading lecture where Michael teaches participants to read their own hand.

Swami Sadashiva Tirtha  (Author/Shaman/Energy Healer) will present a program at 10 am on Spiritual Science: Realizing the Eagle-Condor Prophecy in 2012.

Marilou Trask-Curtain (Published Author) will present: "Heavenly Communications and Near Death Experiences."  The topic of Marilou's speech will be her personal contact with the dead (both form and dream visits with the departed since her first near death experience at age three.)  She will be selling copies of her recently released book (Llewellyn Worldwide Publications, Inc) "Dreaming of the Dead: Personal Stories of Comfort and Hope" and would love to visit with people at her booth about their own experiences and answer any questions they may have.  These are just a few of the fun events awaiting those who dare to undertake this otherworldly end-of-summer experience.
