In the first half, clinical psychologist and a professor at the Wright Institute in Berkeley, Matthew McKay discussed how the murder of his son, Jordan, sent him on a journey in search of ways to communicate with him. He recounted his efforts -- including past-life and between-lives hypnotic regressions, induced after-death communication, and channeled writing and how this led to extraordinary revelations about the soul’s life after death, and its future development. This was followed by Open Lines in the latter half.
My students have quite the fascination with all things paranormal, as most middle school students do. I caught several students discussing The Slenderman, if it was real, an urban legend, etc. I decided to make a ballpoint pen sketch in my spare time between classes and displayed the image on the projector. I had many a student jump when they saw it... then want a copy of it.
