|SPEAKER TOPIC: Trends in Paranormal Research|
|MAIN STAGE: Saturday, March 30th @ 6pm|
This presentation explores various trends in the field of paranormal research and investigation and their effects on the field at large. Discussed trends include technological advances / metaphysical instruments and their implications; spirit resolution vs. "para-tainment"; getting rid of "ego" and educational development. Those who fervently engage themselves in down-to-earth paranormal research, including proper protocol, standard operating procedures and empathy, are becoming more comfortable calling out those amateur groups of people who act in manners that disrespect the departed and the field at large. All in all, I do see more and more genuine, grounded paranormal research teams expanding their repertoire by helping the ethereal energies they investigate and commune with. In my opinion, this is vital in the rapport building between the living and departed – the ultimate, natural way to improve not only the paranormal research arena but how the public at large perceives it.
