Dustin Pari
Guest Occupation: Writer, Philosopher, Paranormal Researcher
Guest Biography:

Just a little about me- I'm your average, every day guy who just has had very good fortune with being in the right place at the right time. But as they say- luck is what happens when hard work meets opportunity.

I am a proud father to three wonderful children and I'm very happily married to the girl of my dreams, all of which I miss greatly while traveling to film the show around the globe.

I have been interested in the paranormal since I was a child and I've been investigating since my early teens with friends at local hot spots. When I'm not hunting ghosts, I'm busy holding down three "normal" jobs.

In my free time (if there is any) I enjoy spending time with my family, working on classic cars, writing satirical social commentaries, playing Guitar Hero, eating cereal and watching cartoons.

As to why I am still pursuing this field today--well, I am a very spiritual individual and I am constantly looking for proof of the afterlife, not for myself but for others. If nothing more than to show nonbelievers that there is something more out there to consider- and that maybe- we can all live in this life, just being a little nicer to each other.

I love the paranormal community because it is filled with people just like me. People who are just doing the best they can with the resources and time they have available.

Lets face it, you could do anything for a day job, but once you have that life changing encounter, your heart will always lead you back to this field and to the unknown.

Marcey Hamm
Guest Occupation: The World's Most Various Composer
Guest Biography:

Marcey Hamm was born in Oklahoma surrounded by the Native American Indian culture, wild buffalo and her family's business being in the movie industry. All of these influences gave her the foundation which she later needed for what was to come into her life. Marcey Hamm's life story is not like any other life story. She remembers her birth and before her birth. Also, Marcey's Mother left her body while giving birth to Marcey.

Below is what Marcey Hamm's Mother wrote describing her experience while delivering Marcey, her newborn baby: Birth, written by Elsie M. Hamm, Ph.D. (Marcey Hamm's Mother)

I think I saw eternity,
I think I heard the sound
Of swishing wings and currents
And creatures all around.

It was the Beatific Vision,
It was light giving light from above.
It was music and color and sweet scents
And it was love gazing at love.

It was a defining moment
And it could have been much more.
Could I again possess such riches,
Such a feeling deep and warm
As the night they laid my new born
In the waiting curve of my arm.

Marcey Hamm's background is in Nuclear Engineering, Electronics and Software Development. Marcey died in a car wreck one morning on her way to work. She was given a gift of music when she died and has been composing music ever since. Marcey Hamm is not a musician. To make matters even more interesting, people from all over the world attest of healings and miracles just from listening to Marcey Hamm's music. For example, one man was deaf and now can hear. Another example, a police officer became paraplegic from an accident and now lives a normal life. The stories are endless, varied and are not limited to just the human species. Marcey's music effects animals, plants and all of Mother Nature including the weather. For example, one farmer in Tennessee uses the music out in the fields for his tobacco and has the biggest bumper crops he's ever had. When hurricane Ike hit Texas in 2008, thousands of people were without electricity except for a widow out in the country who was the only one with electricity in a 100 mile radius. She plays Marcey's music 24/7 non-stop. No one can explain how she had electricity. These kinds of experiences are not isolated and people all over the world have their own varied experiences with Marcey's music.

The events that surround Marcey Hamm's music are a phenomena that are truly a mystery. Marcey says the music has an effect on all of life because of the love that is within the music. She says there is no greater or more powerful energy than love. The testimonials speak for themselves. One woman kept having miscarriages. Everything she was trying in order to have a baby was not working. Then she heard Marcey on a radio show. She bought her music and started playing the music non-stop. She carried her first baby to term and delivered her first baby. No one can explain it. One thing is for sure, Marcey Hamm's music is an experience and her music has changed thousands of lives all over the world.

Daniel Rodriguez
Guest Occupation: Professional Singer and International Recording Artist, known as "America's Beloved Tenor," Musician, Producer, Former New York City Police Officer
Guest Biography:

To those who have come to love him as the so-called “singing policeman,”—the New York City cop who helped bring the country an uplifting spirit of promise and hope with his stirring rendition of “God Bless America” after the September 11 terrorist attacks—it is no surprise that Daniel Rodriguez has always been a spiritual man. His first two albums, the debut SPIRIT OF AMERICA and the romantic FROM MY HEART, both included a spiritual song as a testament to the driving force in his life, and he has welcomed the opportunity to work with institutions such as the USO, the City of Hope, Dr. Robert Schuller’s Crystal Cathedral and numerous law enforcement organizations.

Thus, IN THE PRESENCE, his first album devoted to inspirational music released by Seattle-based Blix Street Records, is a gift whose time has come. For the album, Rodriguez applies his rich and warm tenor to traditional spiritual and church songs as well as contemporary gems. Taken together, the record brings the same spirit of healing and compassion that he brought the country in those days after September 11. Clearly, Daniel’s strength is in translating music into the warm embrace of community.

Fritz Springmeier
Guest Occupation: Author, Writer, Speaker, Educater, Lecturer
Guest Biography:

Fritz Springmeier is foremost a follower of Yahshua the Messiah. He gave his life to Christ when he was 13. And believes that what happens with his life is not about himself but about Christ. As Christ wanted to save the world, Fritz has also done projects that would significantly help improve the world. He believes that we are called to love our enemies and do good to our enemies. Evil can not be overcome with more evil. His life can only be understood that Christ came to give us life and a more abundant life even in the here and now. Let us take care of the here and now to improve life.

Fritz Springmeier is probably the world's foremost authority on the bloodlines of the Illuminati and the techniques they employ to create a mind controlled slave. His books on mind control (co-authored with former Illuminati programmer Cisco Wheeler) are without peer in depth, rigorous detail, and uncompromising accuracy. His lecture on the Illuminati and mind control given at the Granada Forum in 1998 was the best and most astute presentation on the subject.

Lisa Lachapelle
Guest Occupation: Spiritualist, Writer, Author, Fine Artist
Guest Biography:

I live in Canada - and I'm a creative pursuer of peace. A Spiritualist (but you already know that by reading this site) ...who is big on self-study (not just introspection, but a love for books as a means of learning).

The past several years I've concentrated on writing. To be honest being unemployed allowed me the time to complete these books though it has been a struggle the entire way.  My goal for writing was most importantly and above all else to get a strong spiritual message across that would reach many people.  I cannot express enough my gratitude to my family for their patience, love  and support throughout these challenging years.  My thanks to Heaven is infinite.

I've enjoyed writing all my life. That first summer that I moved into the house on Harkness St. I knew that I would write a book.  What it would be about was later inspired by going to Heaven... after the Awakening. Five years later came the overwhelming feeling again that the 'time is now' to write it. So gathering passion with  notes I wrote Small Tales and Visits to Heaven, my first book to be published. The second book of that set was released seven months later.  Poetry was not only a part of a broader creative process but a point of discovery.

I am also a fine artist and the two creative realms - writing and art, in the fabric of mind have very different outcomes.  How I love them both!

I am spiritually fit to remain a solo flyer through life and remain celibate. Lover of light, lover of humanity, lover of God. Dedicated to spiritual humanest resolve for a union of hearts that bring harmony to others.

Richard Shulman, Musician
Guest Occupation: Music for meditation, inspiration, healing, and enlightenment, spiritual artist
Guest Biography:

RICHARD SHULMAN

Keyboardist and composer Richard Shulman creates music intended to be a positive influence for himself, audiences, and society.

Richard has recorded 23 of his own albums as well as more than two dozen other recordings for which he has provided compositions, performances and/or musical production. Trained in the classical and jazz fields, he has developed a heartfelt language in these genres while focussing a significant amount of his output on music for meditation, healing and inspiration. He currently divides his concert schedule between performances of his meditation music and his original jazz as personified by the Richard Shulman Trio.Shulman has performed at the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Art Park, the United Nations, the Kool Jazz Festival, The Amenia Peace Festival and a wide variety of other venues throughout North America and in Europe.

As a composer, Shulman has created over sixty pieces for jazz quartet as well as songs and pieces for chamber ensembles, choir, and symphony orchestra. In 1986 and 1987 he composed music for orchestra and jazz quartet during residencies at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. From 1986 through 1995, Shulman was the principal composer for "Theatre of the Heart," a cooperative of dancers, singers, and musicians dedicated to fostering community and the environment. Commissions include a piece for the Amherst Saxophone Quartet, and "May Peace Prevail on Earth" for singers, symphony orchestra, three choirs, and jazz quartet, created for the World Peace Prayer Society. In addition, he has created hundreds of 'Musical Soul Portrait' recordings for individuals, couples, and groups.

Born and raised in Niagara Falls, New York, he began piano lessons at age seven. As a teenager Richard played organ at various churches, was the music counselor at a summer camp in Canada, and joined a rock band with future jazz recording artists Thom Rotella and Bobby Previte. Shulman graduated from the University of Rochester with a double-major Bachelor's degree in music (piano performance) and psychology while continuing to perform with Previte in the jazz-fusion band Thermopylae.

While at Rochester, Shulman also attended the prestigious Eastman School of Music and studied jazz improvisation with Chuck Mangione and Marian McPartland, orchestration with Donald Hunsberger and arranging with the legendary Rayburn Wright. Shulman continued his studies in jazz with Frank Foster, composition with William Kothe and Lejaren Hiller, and piano with Yvar Mikashoff while getting his Masters Degree in musical composition at the State University of New York at Buffalo. During those years he played onstage in concert with such jazz stalwarts as Thad Jones, Eddie Gomez, Pepper Adams, Jerry Dodgion, Freddie Hubbard and Al Harewood, and recorded his first jazz album, Wonder.

After moving to New York City, Shulman played in the studio as a session musician with the great jazz rhythm section of Ron Carter and Grady Tate; performed with groups such as The Richard Reiter Swing Band, Providence and Crossing Point; and recorded and performed with the acts Mr. Spats (Steve Evans, June Bisantz, Steve Swallow and Bob Moses) and Bobby Previte. The Richard Shulman Group, a jazz quartet, played regularly in the New York area and recorded the albums A Simple Gift and Open Spaces, and Richard also released the solo jazz piano album Solo Flight.

In New York City, he found himself on a spiritual search which lead him to meditation classes. While continuing his jazz performances, Shulman began playing for the meditation and healing groups which he attended. His first recording incorporating some of this meditative style was the extemporaneous solo piano album, World Peace, recorded on the 40th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima. This album had been suggested by a healer who also showed him that he could create music for individuals for healing and alignment. These recordings became known as "Musical Soul Portraits" and have been a feature of Shulman's solo concerts ever since. This work led him into creating more albums for healing and meditation, including A Higher Dimension, Light Music, Music for Magnified Healing, First Rites and Sacred Music for Healing Hands Volumes 1 & 2.

Shulman's first two album releases with national marketing were Light from Assisi and Transformation at Assisi, inspired by spiritual pilgrimages to the town of Assisi in Italy where St. Francis lived. Richard then began groundwork for the 2002 project Camelot Reawakened: A Vision Fulfilled with a pair of recordings -- Ascension Harmonics and the partially-orchestral Keeper of the Holy Grail -- with "spiritual attunements" by Samuel Welsh. "Our research for 'Holy Grail' led me to the larger picture of Camelot," says Shulman, who also took a trip to Glastonbury, England in 1995 to study the area. "I feel that the energies of Camelot still reside in places like the Abbey there and the Michael Tor, the sacred hill which is pictured on the cover of Camelot Reawakened."

From 1996 through 2005 Richard focussed on the creation of the CD and DVD/video Camelot Reawakened: A Vision Fulfilled. Inspired by an inner vision, this project follows the manifestation of "Dreams of the Heart" in music and words. The CD and DVD feature a 35- piece orchestra consisting of members of the Asheville Symphony Orchestra, a choir, soloists, and Shulman at the piano. The concert and recording session were conducted by Robert Hart Baker.

Related albums recorded during this time include First Rites and Music to Walk the Labyrinth. The Camelot Reawakened CD won a 2003 Coalition of Visionary Resources (COVR) Visionary Award, and the DVD was a finalist in the 2006 awards. The DVD has also won an Award of Excellence and an honorable mention in the 2007 Accolade Competition.

In 2003, RichHeart Music released Shulman's duo album with cellist Adriana Contino, who for several years was the principal soloist for the Stuttgart, (Germany) Chamber Orchestra. New Beginnings explores the delicate balance between inner and outer listening in free flowing improvisations as well as upbeat and lyrical compositions. Shulman's solo piano CD, Music of Peace was released in June, 2006 and is music dedicated to and expressing inner peace.

His 2008 release, 11:11 Piano Meditations for Awakening, is a series of tranquil improvisations exploring "Wake up calls from Spirit." The 11:11 CD won a 2009 Coalition of Visionary Resources (COVR) Visionary Award for best CD in the meditational/healing music category.2009 brought the release of Sky Jazz, Shulman's first Jazz CD in many years, as well as the re-release on CD of "A Higher Dimension," a meditative solo piano album expressing qualities of spiritual realms.

After the completion of the Camelot Reawakened CD in 2002 and the DVD video in 2005, a friend sugguested a musical based on the Camelot Reawakened project.

"A Dream of Camelot" is a theatrical musical intended to portray the changing of deeply rooted patterns in the Archetype of Camelot for the sake of fulfilling dreams of the heart for individuals, society, and the planet.  Each song in “A Dream of Camelot” is an expression of consciousness in a process of maturing awareness. “A Dream of Camelot” has taken six years of writing and development to become the transformational catalyst it now is for casts and audiences alike.

2009 brought the first reading of the musical at the UR Light Center in Black Mountain, NC. The first full production, directed by Jerry Crouch, was presented at the Asheville NC Masonic Temple, March 11, 12, & 13, 2011 and the musical returned to the Masonic Temple March 29, 30, 31, and April 1, 2012, directed by Rock Eblen.

More info about the musical  "A Dream of Camelot" is available Here.

In 2013, Shulman is returning to and enhancing his own musical stream of healing and Divine Alignment with the production of a new album entitled "Bliss of Being." Although he has created eight albums of music for healing previously, these were all solo recordings, and "Bliss of Being" is his first ensemble recording with an intent of music for healing and divine connection. Shulman plays mostly piano on "The Bliss of Being" and a little synthesizer, and is joined by Adriana Contino - cello, Dielle Ciesco - vocals, Kate Steinbeck - flutes, and Bob Hinkle - crystal bowls to form The Pure Heart Ensemble. The international release date is June 21st 2013.

Richard Shulman currently lives in Asheville, NC and performs and records regionally and internationally.

“Susan is filled with stories, grace, encouragement, authenticity, humor, and a strong sense of ethics. She demonstrates a vast knowledge and experience without any judging.”

“Susan is such a grounded, clear, honoring teacher and it is inspirational to witness her obvious comfort with, depth, and commitment to the spirit world and this work. Far from acting "the guru", Susan frequently redirects our questions back to us, encouraging us to seek the answer from our own Spirit Helpers. This approach further demonstrates her respect for the process and has helped me build confidence and familiarity with my own relationship with the spirit world."
—Christobel Macdonald, Three-Year Program student

"Thank you so much for such a great workshop (Basic Workshop) this past weekend! It was absolutely wonderful to get such a good grounding in shamanic practice, so clear and eloquently explained and with so much time for practice and discussion and experience."

"Excellent information and presented so well. Clear, kind, gentle, direct. Very knowledgeable."

Susan has had a lifelong interest in creativity and the creative process. She has composed two CDs of healing songs - Teachings from the Spirits (originally produced by FSS) and Be a Light - and has written a fantasy novel, Roseheart.
