Course Description

Unveiling the Supernatural: A Journey into the World of Hauntings

Do unseen forces govern our reality? Is the space beyond what we perceive teeming with spirits, waiting for a moment of interaction? Such questions have long captivated the human imagination, spurring timeless tales, cinematic masterpieces, and evocative folklore. While science has yet to verify the existence of the spirit realm, the allure of the paranormal remains undiminished.

The joy of huddling around a campfire, captivated by chilling tales of apparitions and unexplained phenomena, is a universal experience. The global entertainment industry, valued at over $2 trillion as of 2022, is replete with horror movies, spine-tingling TV series, and novels that delve into the supernatural. People around the world pay to experience haunted houses, tour ancient graveyards by torchlight, and seek the thrill of potentially coming face-to-face with entities from beyond.

While some engage with the paranormal as a form of escapism, others view it as a genuine field of study, a pursuit to understand the mysteries that challenge our understanding of reality. After all, many beliefs once considered outlandish have been validated over time. For instance, the Earth, contrary to popular medieval belief, isn't flat. Could it be possible, then, that our intuitive feelings of otherworldly presences have a foundation in truth?

Introducing a course that serves as both a thrilling journey and a rigorous investigation: an exploration of 15 locations globally, each shrouded in tales of hauntings.
