When people realize they will live on after death, they change . . .

They lose their fear of death. They have more compassion. And they care for and love others instead of greedily taking for themselves at the expense of others.

Changed people will result in a changed humankind

AREI Presents ~ Mediums Rare

The L.A. Medium ~ The Reporter for the Otherside ~The Psychic Lawyer ~ The Carefree Medium
Don’t miss this session, included with your Friday night banquet ticket. Highly acclaimed mediums Mark Anthony, Tina Powers , and Mark Nelson join host, Susanne Wilson, for an evening you’ll never forget.

Expect the unexpected. There may be laughter or tears, but one thing is certain: you will feel the presence of spirit when these extraordinary souls share the stage.

You will hear their personal stories and see them in action as they give messages from the spirit world to audience members at random. No one is guaranteed a message, but if you pay close attention, you may well find a gem that touches your heart.

We will throw it open and see if we can do any double- or triple- or even quadruple-link messages. Fun!


How to Record Afterlife Voices

Free Workshop

Reverend Dr. Sheri Perl is an Afterlife Research and Education Institute ITC facilitator. Sheri is using Instrumental TransCommunication to record the messages from children who have passed away to their parents. She calls the work “Lost and Found.” The voices are most often one to three words, with some very clear statements and some less clear because of limitations of the signal coming from the Station. The parents can ask their children questions. Sheri records the questions and the background noise. The parent and Sheri don’t hear the response at that time. When Sheri plays back the recording she has made, the child’s response may follow the parent’s question. The responses are often difficult to hear. Sheri shares only those she can verify as clear enough to be heard easily.

Sheri will hold an hour and a half free workshop on how anyone can record voices using the same method she is using, which is based on Sonia Rinaldi’s work.  All you have to bring is a  laptop. We can’t guarantee you’ll connect, or that the voices you record will be the voices you want, but most people are successful at recording voices.

George Noory Asks Our Experts Questions from the Audience

George Noory will lead one of the very popular panels he is known for. He will choose six of the presenters to be on a panel. Audience members will write questions, and Tom Danheiser, George’s affable organizer, will collect them to give to George.  George will ask the experts the questions, while Tom asks some questions himself as he’s in the audience hearing from audience members. The panels are always enlightening and entertaining. There is no predicting the questions, and answers, or George’s and Tom’s reactions.

Everyone will then have an opportunity to meet George.


Suzanne Giesemann Will Channel Higher-Level Beings

In this demonstration, renowned evidential medium Suzanne Giesemann will go into trance and channel messages from the higher realms. There is no agenda and no way of predicting or controlling what will come through.

She will help you understand evidential mediumship and channeling, and how you can know about your own abilities and abilities of people you know.

Hay House author Suzanne Giesemann is a retired U.S. Navy Commander with a master’s degree in Public Administration who served as a Commanding Officer and as aide-de-camp to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on 9/11. The author of 10 books, today former-commander Giesemann is an evidential medium and spiritual teacher.
