This month join us for a special joint event with the local IIG (Independent Investigations Group).
The Real X-Files: Scientific Paranormal Investigations Workshop
Ever wondered how a person goes about investigating a haunted house, a Bigfoot sighting, or a crop circle? In movies and on television, it looks easy, but how do real-life paranormal investigators discover what really happened, separating truth from myth? Come find out in a unique, intensive workshop taught by investigator Benjamin Radford. Radford is deputy editor of Skeptical Inquirer science magazine, columnist for Discovery News and LiveScience.com, and author of seven books and over a thousand articles on science literacy, investigation, and the paranormal. Radford has appeared on CNN, Good Morning America, ABC News, BBC, CBS News, the History Channel, The Discovery Channel, National Geographic television, and many more.
He will share his experience and insights gained over a decade of experience investigating dozens of mysterious and paranormal phenomena. Radford is one of only a few paranormal investigators in the world who approach the topics from a skeptical, scientific perspective. The purpose is to understand and explain the mysteries using science and evidence, not to prove or disprove the existence of these phenomena. Drawing from dozens of case studies involving ghosts, monsters, miracles, psychics, and more, Radford will explain the step-by-step process in investigations, including critical thinking, evaluating unusual claims, interviewing eyewitnesses, and conducting field experiments.
The workshop is three hours, including two short breaks. Cost is $40 and includes a workbook and a copy of his book Scientific Paranormal Investigation: How to Solve Unexplained Mysteries. The class size is limited, and you must register to guarantee a space.
Please note the different day and location from usual. Due to tight schedule the start time will be promptly at 7pm; we will open the doors at 6pm, during which time food will be available.
