Course Description

Welcome to a study of the unusual, the eerie and the unexplained. It's widely believed that there are forces acting upon us every day from the spirit world--forces we could learn to use to our advantage, if only we knew how to interact effectively with the spirit world. That's quite a challenge, when we have yet to even prove it exists! 

Whether or not you believe in the paranormal, you can still enjoy the ghost stories that send a chill down your spine sitting around the campfire. Our love of scary stories has inspired horror movies and scary television shows, creepy novels and ghostly folk tales. We visit haunted houses and take flashlight tours of spooky cemeteries, all in the hopes of catching a glimpse of a ghost or catching a supernatural thrill. Harmless fun.

Whatever your reasons for delving further, there is fuel for learning more about the spirit world. After all, there was a time we thought the world was flat… so how can we be sure our sixth sense can't be trusted? Who's to say whether or not ghosts are real? To make a final decision, it seems we should at least take a close look at the evidence that surrounds us. 

This course on hauntings is an overview of 15 locations around the world that are popularly described as haunted. Students of the paranormal can use these stories as an introduction to the subject and a foundation for further study. The lessons are specifically designed for beginners, and the locations were carefully chosen to represent a variety of different types of hauntings and their accounts.
