As the inhabitants of Earth experience the transformative period of 2012 and beyond, shifts in universal paradigms, understanding the origins of humanity, and the scientific and spiritual choices available to mankind all become monumentally important.

At the 2011 Paranormal Symposium in Taos, NM, an impressive group of keynote speakers and workshop presenters will address a variety of issues currently being questioned and confronted by humanity. These experts will discuss their experiences, detail their investigations, and examine connections between science and spirituality in these troubled times. Topics include UFOs, ancient aliens, ETs and abductions, cosmic changes, Native American prophecies and legends, angels, the origins of humanity, Dulce area animal mutilations, the Star Child skull, crop circles, crystal skulls, and other paranormal mysteries.

In addition, several alumni speakers from previous Symposiums will be honored guests at this year’s event, with meet and greet opportunities, press conferences, and book signings scheduled.

The Symposium will offer some new activities this year, including a Friday night dinner/debate with keynote speakers, metaphysical practitioners, and audience members participating in an open dialogue around the Symposium theme “Connecting Science and Spirit.” The dinner/debate will be broadcast live on the Internet, and later on public access television. Other new activities include workshops, seminars, Native American dances, tours, films and other activities related to a variety of paranormal subjects.

The event will officially open with a Kick-Off party Tuesday evening at the Best Western Kachina Lodge, in the Zuni Lounge and around the pool (weather permitting), with folks encouraged to dress up as their favorite paranormal character and enter the costume contest. Seminars and workshops are scheduled on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, along with tours of paranormal sites throughout the Enchanted Circle, and nightly Native American dance performances.

Perennial Symposium favorite Jerry Pippin will once again provide live radio coverage of the entire event, and will be available throughout the Symposium to interview speakers and visitors.

As an added bonus, the annual Taos Hot Air Balloon Festival will take place early in the mornings during Symposium weekend, offering opportunities for more than one kind of paranormal “sighting” in the New Mexico sky!
