Behind the Paranormal with Paul and Ben Eno
Wednesday, Sept. 25, 7 p.m.
Behind the Paranormal covers Paul Eno’s strange journey over 43 years, from seminary studies and work with church exorcists to eminent paranormal authority. He will discuss his most famous and amazing ghost and poltergeist cases and how he arrived at his mind-expanding, utterly unique theories of the paranormal and his unusual methods. The "cosmic journey" continues through 2005, when he was joined by his then 13-year-old son Ben, whose striking gifts in the paranormal arena soon became abundantly clear. The program includes the father-son team's experiences with ghosts, paranormal "parasites," UFOs and much more in America and Europe. One and a half hours, with time for questions. This program is free and open to the public.
