As pagans, it goes with the territory that the reality of the unseen world is a given, thus it is interest that the Kaiju paranormal conference http://shetannoir.wix.com/glwckaijufestival being given this weekend in Detroit that is being facilitated by actual pagans. On October 13, 2013, at the Tangent Gallery, celebrated author Shetan Noir http://www.amazon.com/Shetan-Noir/e/B00BBO6VJI shall be hosting the the festival and its workshops, and a portion of the proceeds from this event, and afterparty, are going to charity.
"Kaiju is the Japanese word for monster and this festival will focus on Workshops covering the Paranormal.
Topics will include Ghost Hunting, Cryptozoology, UFO's , Paranormal research and more" according to the site, but there is more to this story than things that go bump in the night.
We are now about to face the Wheel's final turn for the year, and this is a fitting time to be reminded of the "other" things that share our reality. Samhain comes, and this
"day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred" according to http://www.history.com/topics/halloween.
One person familiar with the Mighty Dead and their habits is H.B. Pattskyn, author "Ghosthunting, Michigan" http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/14058764-ghosthunting-michigan . She will be on site. She is a recognized authority, and offers a wealth of information and experience.
Frankie Biggz, is a Grammy Award Winning American record producer/songwriter, and musician, will also be in attendance to speak on his other passion, UFOs. You may be familiar with his podcast, "UFOMM – U.F.O.’s over Monroe, Michigan" https://soundcloud.com/UFOOMM , a regular series in which he covers happenings here in the Land of the Fresh Water Seas that may be denied, but are undeniably happening.
You may have heard of the crop circle phenomenon, but this event will put you face to face with an authority on the matter, Dr. Chuck Lietzau P.H.D. You may be surprised that the old farmer and cardboard explanation is not feasible as the only explanation.
William J. Konkolesky, director of the MUFON (Mutual UFO Network of Michigan) http://www.mufon.com/MapPages/MI.html will be presenting a dynamic forum and discussion. He brings years of authority on the topic.
The fact shall be separated from the fiction at this conference, as scientific methodology will be criteria for inclusion in the subject matter. Fact finding experts, Lower Michigan Paranormal Society http://www.l-m-p-s.com/ will also be present.
If you have photographs or stories, or just want to find out if an investigation is in order, they are the people to see.
After the main event, Shetan Noir will host a live ghost hunting expedition on the premises. With this being October, and the Veil being so thin right now, there is no telling what could happen and who could be found.
The after party promises performers who practice Goddess Dance, Tarot Readings, and other activities that are in season with the time.
In the instance that this is a little to out of schedule, there are local resources at small shops around Metro Detroit that have services that are available to assist you in your quests for knowledge.
Mystiques West http://www.mystiqueswest.com/ , in Westland, offers weekly seances and assistance in mediumship, classes, and resources.
Smokey Crystal http://www.smokeycrystal.com/, in Woodhaven, offers medium services, as well as psychometry. The latter allows one to understand and gain insight into the ownership and legacy of objects that may have given questions to the current owners.
And if you are interested in going into your past form of incarnation, and the knowledge there, you might drop in to Candlewick Shoppe in http://www.candlewickshoppe.com/ Ferndale and take an Akashic Records workshop.
