Investigating with a Disability
He will be doing a Q & A session and speak about the topic investigating with a disability.
"Adam Bonnett is a paranormal investigator, but not just any paranormal investigator. What makes him different? He's in a wheelchair. His condition has never slowed him down, only forced him to develop creative alternatives to achieve his goals. Often considered a "rolling trigger object", he uses his unique position to his advantage when investigating. He created a wheelchair bound ghost named Glider to represent him and others with disabilities. Adam uses Glider as a symbol of no limits, hoping to raise awareness and to show the world that anything is possible.
Adam worked as a paranormal manager at Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum for 7 years, and has been a guest speaker at many conventions as well as being a guest on numerous radio shows. He has traveled to many east & west coast locations. He enjoys sharing his unique stories, experiences, and adventures hoping to inspire people that anything is possible!

Muses, Magic, and Messages from Beyond: Communicating with Guides & Angels
Lori presented a workshop on spirit guide communication at the 2019 Vulture City ParaCon. Since it was such a big hit, she is doing another similar workshop. She will discuss the difference between angels, ghosts, spirits, and spirit guides and talk about the connection between our guides and past lives!
There are many types of spirit guides—elementals such as dragons and fairies, other-worldly, cryptid, human, animal, and deceased loved ones.
Lori will also talk about the concept of past lives and reincarnation, and provide guidance on getting in touch with spirit guides from past lives, such as through dreams and meditation. Do you have a creative side? Or, feel as if you received some strong inspiration or messages pertaining to your life? It could be a friend or loved one providing hope from the other side.
Engaging your guides and angels is easier than you think! Your guides are waiting to talk to you! Open your heart and mind to discover what you bring forth from past lives!
Lori will also have a table at the Paracon and will be offering medium readings and past life readings for the public!

Psychic & Tarot Reader
How to Use and Read Tarot Cards
Charlie’s interactive workshop will be fun and informative as he teaches how to use tarot cards & perform readings!
Charlie will be having a table at the event if you would like a private tarot reader.
Having had in interest in Tarot for years, I decided in 2017 to devote the time and finally learn. Finally in 2018 I read a couple of books during the year and I found the Wild Unknown deck in the fall of 2018. I decided in December that I would jump in with both feet and finally do readings.
I believe the Tarot is going to be a lifelong journey. I don’t think I’ll ever 100% know the meanings of all the cards. I have experimented with doing readings during investigations and gotten some amazing results.

Ins and outs of collecting potentially cursed/haunted items.
Born and raised within the Bridgewater Triangle in southern Massachusetts, Matt Warner has had paranormal experiences since childhood, and has been investigating for over 20 years. An avid fan of horror movies from a young age, with Ghostbusters being a favorite, this gave him an interest in the paranormal. With the advent of para television such as Unsolved Mysteries, Sightings and then later on Ghost Hunters, he realized there were avenues to explore within the field and that he wasn't alone. A natural skeptic, Matt needs to see tangible evidence to support claims of haunting activity. As an empath he relies on his intuition, experience and a variety of the latest ghost hunting equipment to help validate such claims. Matt has a passion for history and architecture, and is drawn to the abandoned and decrepit. He also collects oddities and enchanted objects, such as Ouija, dolls and the macabre that most don't want.

Unearthing the Supernatural Native American Paranormal Investigators
A ground breaking group of individuals; ancient teachings and sacred knowledge; a blending of the old and new; a level of respect for the other side that is now echoing across the paranormal world. Unearthing the Supernatural is a young group of Paranormal Investigators who use traditional Native American methods and communication techniques combined with modern technology to make contact with entities of the phantom and spiritual realms.
The Unearthing the Supernatural team consists of an ordained, certified, and culturally renowned Traditional Native American Healer/Exorcist/Warrior known by his stage name as Hero. The team also consists of his pupils in training: Shanclen the tall, majestic warrior and CO- Founder of UTS who isn’t afraid of confrontation with the dark side and the communicator of the group; Petiah the warrior that specializes in the connection for the spirits to the western world and its authorities and heart of the group; Nalerone the wizard of the group that specializes in the arcane, mysterious, and Native American magic side of the paranormal.
With ancient knowledge and traditional teachings becoming more and more extinct with each passing day, Unearthing the Supernatural began to incorporate modern technology to document and archive their ceremonies and teachings for use by future generations. With a strong history and years of performing ceremonies to not only help the people that call upon them but also the spiritual entities, Unearthing the Supernatural has a level of professionalism, respect, and expertise in their rare (almost unheard of) field of Native American Paranormal Investigating.
The group not only performs private ceremonies, but also features a YouTube channel showcasing some of the more popular haunted locations. The group also features a podcast called Bi’ki’gi’s Spiritual Lessons and Tales Podcast, which features some of the Traditional Native American teachings and their explanations and purposes. Recently featured on Ghost Adventures, and sparking the interest in the paranormal community, UTS hopes to bring a refreshing spark and some never before seen evidence, ancient philosophies, and new styles of paranormal investigating to the table.
Together, the Unearthing the Supernatural Team seek out the paranormal of all shapes and sizes. Often called to help those that are tormented by dark entities or callings by a higher power, the group now travels across the United States and hope to travel internationally to help people, spirits, and phantoms in need.
