Do you want to do something different for Halloween this year? Try the Seance Experience. Live Seances will be held at the Congress Plaza Hotel on October 27, 28 and 29, 2023. There will be four sessions each day:
- 3 pm to 4 pm
- 5 pm to 6 pm
- 7 pm to 8 pm
- 9 pm to 10 pm
A seance is a meeting, centered on a medium or seance master, to try to communicate with a spirit or spirits of the dead. Strong light is said to hinder communication so a seance usually takes place in subdued light or darkness.
Communication can take the form of a disembodied voice or a voice can speak through the medium. Sometimes objects appear to move by themselves or a hand, limb or body may take shape from ectoplasm (a viscous substance).
Seances generally involve small groups of 6 to 8 people. They form a circle and hold hands during the seance.
The Seance Experience gives you an authentic live re-creation of a Victorian Era Dark Seance just like it was performed in the 1800s when the Congress Plaza was built. It will use actual antique Seance artifacts from the 1800s.
A former College Professor in Paranormal Phenomena, your Spirit Guide Seance Master has participated in major Paranormal research. The Seance Master has hosted hundreds of Seances across the country, including the Houdini Seance at the world renowned Magic Castle in Hollywood, California.
