The Orbs Phenomenon

Have you heard about the orb phenomena?  Why are light spheres suddenly appearing in so many of our digital photographs?  Are they just dust or is there really something deeper and more profound to be learned?  Why are there so many different colors?  Are the orbs friendly?

Nancy Myers is an orb medium and photographer and has been capturing orbs for over 7 years.  She will share with you her journey of how this phenomena came into her life and what the orbs have taught her - not only why they are here but also what they are and why they are appearing now in masse.

During her presentation, Nancy will take a few photos of some audience members and share them on the spot.  Afterwards, you will have an opportunity to have your picture taken by Nancy as she asks your loved ones to surround you and show themselves.

About the Speaker:
Nancy Myers is a self-described "Orb Medium" and is affectionately referred to as "The Orb Lady".  Since the passing of her son in 2010, she has been photographing orbs and other spirit phenomena on a regular basis.  She has witnessed the orbs evolve from small, faint circles in digital photographs to large, bright and well defined images.  The orbs are now appearing in many different styles and colors and are even appearing with the faces of our loved ones in spirit.  Nancy not only photographs the orbs but can often 'read' them as well.

Nancy's newly released book, Entering the Light Fantastic, Discovering Life After Life Through Orbs (available on Amazon), takes the reader along on her course of discovery, from grief to healing and then on to service.  

As an Orb Medium and photographer, an author, a Reiki Master and a certified Angel card reader, Nancy is committed to sharing these phenomena with those who have a need to heal, a need to see spirit for themselves, and with those who are willing to expand their realm of possibilities.

Paranormal Pub

Paranormal Pub


About Paranormal Pub
Join us once a month to hear from experts in unexplainable phenomena - think UFOs, extraterrestrials, Bigfoot, ESP, ghosts and beyond. Come have a beer and a burger handcrafted beverage, concessions, and/or a slice of pizza, settle in and learn something new from a curated line-up of scholars, experiencers and others.

According to Wikipedia: "Paranormal events are phenomena described in popular culture, folklore and other non-scientific bodies of knowledge, whose existence within these contexts is described to lie beyond normal experience or scientific explanation.

A paranormal phenomenon is different from hypothetical concepts such as dark matter and dark energy. Unlike paranormal phenomena, these hypothetical concepts are based on empirical observations and experimental data gained through the scientific method.

The most notable paranormal beliefs include those that pertain to ghosts, extraterrestrial life, unidentified flying objects, psychic abilities or extrasensory perception and cryptids."

We thank the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) for coordinating and hosting this programming at the historic Mission Theater.

(Reminder: This event is not eligible for the "Attend a History Pub" Passport experience stamp.)

The location that serves as one of McMenamins favorite neighborhood theater pubs was the locus of great spiritual zeal beginning in the 1890s. That's when the Swedish Evangelical Mission established its church here....

From a church to a theater-pub, the Mission's history ain't exactly saintly. Click here for more info!
