Ursula Bielski grew up in a haunted house on Chicago's North Side. From a young age, her frightening, fascinating experiences at home were echoed in the stories she heard from relatives, friends and strangers, and she soon became fascinated by the prevalence of the paranormal in everyday life.
In this often disturbing lecture, Ursula discusses children's early, passive experiences with the paranormal, including past life experiences, communication with animals, clairvoyance of the dead and the the real paranormal presences that lurk in the closet and under the bed. She'll take us back to childhood folktales and examine how the stories we tell teach children to fear -- and block -- paranormal experiences from an early age. Then she'll look at the ways in which the liminal or transitional experiences of adolescents may open the door to dangerous events. From the bogeyman to the Sandman, from seeing dead people to calling on "Candyman," Ursula will share chilling stories from children's true case histories, taken from her twenty years of field research.
In this lecture, audience members will:
-Examine the paranormal in the lives of the very young: Invisible friends, shadow people, and the real problem with the Dark.
-Pinpoint the connections among adolescence, possession and psychokinesis, including true stories of exorcism and the strange story of Tina Resch, one of the most disturbing poltergeist cases of all time.
-Discover ways to foster children's paranormal experiences while shielding them from their dangers.
