Events Tonight and Friday: Ghosts, Fraud and Blessings

Here are the details of three events tonight and tomorrow. The first two, about psychology and psychical research, are taking place in London this evening, Thursday 28 March. The third is on Good Friday, and is a blessing beside the Thames. They all look really interesting:

Plug In Your Brain - Ghosts, Esp, and Crystal Power
The University of Westminster is running a series of talks called Plug in Your Brain, hosted by the Department of Psychology. Tonight's talk is about ghosts, ESP, and crystal power.

The description on the website says: "People often report strange experiences that contradict conventional scientific understanding of the universe, but just why are such paranormal claims so widespread? And can they be explained from a scientific perspective? Join us as Professor Chris French, editor of The Skeptic, debates Dr Chris Roe, editor of the Journal of the Society for Psychical Research, in the final discussion of our series."

Plug in Your Brain talks are open to everyone. Doors open at 6.15pm (entry on a first-come, first-served basis) and talks start promptly at 6.30pm at The Cinema, University of Westminster, 309 Regent Street, London W1B 2UW


Fraud and Psychical Research - Lecture by Leslie Price
Leslie Price is giving a talk entitled Fraud and Psychical Research, hosted by the Society for Psychical Research.

The website says: "Leslie Price will draw upon some of the investigations carried out by editor Paul Gaunt and himself for the online magazine Psypioneer, and will also reveal details of some hitherto unpublished fraud cases in which he was involved. There will be new material about the most famous fraud case in the history of the SPR, and about the most celebrated medium today. Finally he will offer ten tips for coping with fraud."

The talk runs from 6.35pm to through 9:pm at the Lecture Hall of the Kensington Central Library, Campden Hill Road, Kensington, London W8 7RX. Cost: SPR Members and Associates: Free / Non-Members: £5 / Students, Over 60s or Unwaged: £2. Tea, coffee and Biscuits will be available at £1 per person.


Thames Blessing
On Good Friday - that's tomorrow, 28 March - Dr Emoto will be conducting a Thames Blessing on the Victoria Embankment at 10am. It is free to watch or take part, just turn up.

If you can't get there, you can join the blessing to cleanse London in a private meditation by the Thames or along the routes of any of its lost underground tributaries, such as the Fleet.

In the evening, Dr Emoto is conducting a seminar at London's Columbia Hotel about the messages from water. Find out more about that here:
