Spirit Encounters and Electronic Voice Phenomena

Spirit Encounters and Electronic Voice Phenomena

Presented by Dave King, Washington State Ghost Society president & Stacy Calvert, Medium

Is the exploration of consciousness the last frontier? What are EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) messages? Why are they unique? What are the dynamics involved?

Join Washington State Ghost Societies’ president Dave King and medium Stacy Calvert for an explanation of EVPs. Learn how an investigator can utilize a medium’s abilities to understand a location’s paranormal activity and history. When EVPs validate the medium’s impressions or historical facts, the results are spectacular.

The first half of the presentation will explore the unique nature and mechanics of EVPs, providing examples and the investigation stories surrounding them.  It will also explain the methods of EVP analysis, interpretation of results, and methodology to yield the best possible results.  The second half of the presentation will focus on how using a medium as a tool can be extremely productive for exploring the historical fabric of a location.

About the Speakers:
Dave King is president of the Washington State Ghost Society, having been a member since 2008.  Mr. King has been involved in over 300 investigations, consisting of both residential and commercial sites, as well as targeted Spirit Q&A sessions. He collects audio using dual recorders (with different types of microphones) to analyze for EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena).  To date, Mr. King has analyzed well over 8,000 EVP messages.  Through his extensive EVP experience, he has discovered the depth to which paranormal investigations/spirit Q&A sessions adds to our knowledge framework about the time, mechanics of spirit communication, and their perception.


Stacy Calvert is a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Neuro Linguistic Coach (master certification), and certified Matrix Energetics Practitioner since 2009. In 2012, Ms. Calvert added Chinese face reading to her services, after being mentored under Jean Haner, one of the leading people in this field.  That year, she also became a co-founder and a presenter for Northwest Mediumship Meetup group, which meets once a month to develop people's mediumship abilities.  Additionally, Ms. Calvert is a member of the Washington State Ghost Society and serves as a medium on paranormal investigations.  Most recently, in 2015, she added animal communication and space clearings to her offered services.  Regardless of the service being provided to a client, Ms. Calvert finds it is always a privilege to be invited into people’s lives and to watch the changes that occur.

Paranormal Pub

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.
