Strange things have been happening at Inspiration House. We have reports from multiple guests of unexplained noises, feelings, and more. As Halloween draws near, so does the time to explore things we usually keep hidden, even from ourselves…

On October 12th & 13th, 2018, Michelle Belanger will open the doors of Inspiration House to a select group of paranormal enthusiasts, psychics, ghost hunters — and maybe, you!

Will you dare to look at what the darkness hides?




Part I ~ class: psychic perceptions and ghost hunting

5 PM: Inspiration House opens to ticket-holders. Meet & greet in the parlors.

5:30 PM: Attend a class on psychic perceptions, and the pros and cons of their use in paranormal investigation. Q&A to follow. (Available to some Patreon supporters as a reward.)

6:30 PM: Book signing, continued Q&A.

7 PM: Dinner break.
