We've all heard the local "ghost story", the aunt with the old home who has "guests", the shop where things mysteriously move around, the child who talks to someone that no one else can see. In this group, we will investigate those sites, whenever and wherever possible.
Non-physical Beings, aka Spirits, can take up residence in people, places, and things; those of us in the physical realm feel their presence, often in subtle ways. Regarding ghosts (which are spirits, though most spirits are not ghosts), these are simply humans caught between the veils. They are someone's child, someone's parent, someone's friend, that has left behind their physical body, but hasn't transitioned onto the spiritual realm, therefore "stuck" in between (sounds like purgatory, no?). They could be a family member, someone who used to live in the area, or someone passing by that decided they wanted to stay. While some are rather negative, most are just lost or confused. Coming at them with ego, force, threats, etc. (as depicted on some of the TV shows), just causes them to go to another room, when what you really want is for them to go to another realm. When dealing with non-ghost spirits, the approach and methods are somewhat different, and too complex to go into here. Either way, we will engage them and usually help them. Regarding tours, ours are a little different.
While you are welcome to bring along your sensory equipment and cameras, participants find that sharing in the adventure of engaging with the Spirits and witnessing their departure is much more fulfilling. We schedule tours as the opportunity arises. As you can imagine, not everyone is eager to have a group of people trouncing through their property, even if they are paying! We are always searching for locations; if you have a suggestion, please let me know!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
