Paranormal Conferences – Learning with Others

Submitted by Gayle Tiqui


Gayle Tiqui, has been attending paranormal conferences and speaking engagements for several years, in an effort to expand her knowledge base in the field. Here, she shares some of her insights on a few of the speakers she has seen at past conferences.





Brad and Barry Klinge


Brad and Barry’s group is called Everyday Paranormal and they are out of Texas. I met Brad and Barry almost 4 years ago when the group I belonged to was chosen to be their Maryland affiliate making us a part of the Everyday paranormal Family. Talking to them you could see their enthusiasm in the paranormal field and anxiousness to try something new and different! They were offered a show on the Discovery Channel called Ghost Lab. Their mission was to visit the most haunted locations and experiment with new techniques and equipment using the fringe scientific approach. You will never meet friendlier and informative researchers!

They appeared at a couple of the conferences I attended and even though their show was canceled, I don’t believe it will be the last you will see of them on TV.

They are doing a lot of conferences so just keep your eyes open






John Zaffis

I have had the opportunity to see John at three conferences so far. He is a wealth of information on the paranormal and haunted items. His paranormal team is called Paranormal Demonology Research Society of New England.

John is a Nephew of one of the biggest names in demonology Ed and Lorraine Warren, and studied under them for years.

John has been in the “business” for over 37 years and considered one of the top demonologist in the world. His number is listed is on speed dial with many paranormal groups and lectures all over at numerous conferences every year. You will always come away with so much knowledge after listening to him either on or off the stage!

His show “Haunted Collector” on SyFy channel is entering its second season. Along with John, Brian Cano , of Scared from NY, stars with him as one of his investigators.





Chip Coffey

I have seen Chip at conferences three times and can never grow tired of him. He is an internationally acclaimed psychic, medium, writer, speaker and paranormal investigator. He is compared to other medium and psychics such as John Edwards in accuracy with a “tell it as it is” demeanor of Dr Phil.

 He has made appearances on numerous TV shows from CNN, Larry King to over 30 episodes on Paranormal State to mention a few. He is about to release a book this year and has become ever more present in the paranormal lecture community. His background is interesting as well. He is a Great Grandson of famed Native American medicine woman Minnie Sue Morrow Foster.

He usually has a gallery reading which is “extra”( not included with your conference ticket) which I have attended a few times. I have to warn people however, always bring a tissue, even grown men seem to weep after specific messages from beyond.

Paranormal Conferences abound across the nation, and more are cropping up every day.  Attending conferences and lectures can give you the opportunity to see how other investigators are doing things, and perhaps spark ideas for new experiments to try in the field.  It is worth checking to see if there are any in your area.

Gayle Tiqui is the Maryland State Representative of the NPS and founder of S.I.G.N.S. Paranormal.
