We just got back from Salem, where we booked one of the seances through Omen. We were really disappointed. This was nothing like what you think a seance would be. It really was just a group reading, with the medium telling a few bits of information about deceased family members to some of the people in attendance. We thought it would be a typical seance with a group of people holding hands sitting around a table, etc. We were doing this purely for entertainment and it was boring. They had way too many people in the group (around 30) and the medium didn't even have time to talk to many of the individuals. She spent two thirds of the time doing "automatic writing," which was a complete waste of time. One lady spoke up and said that it wasn't at all what she was expecting and the medium said rather than do a seance in the regular way, she thought people would prefer to have more of an individual experience, which would probably have worked much better with a smaller group. If this had been advertised as a group reading, that's understandable but to call it a seance I think is very misleading. She ended the night with "table tipping" where 4 people put one finger under each part of a table while the rest of the group chanted "Rise, rise, rise" and the table eventually lifted off the ground. That was ridiculous. The table was very light and 4 people, one on each side, could easily lift it. I'm just putting this out there as a warning for others in case you're expecting what you think will be a seance. We were very disappointed and I could see where some people would probably ask for a refund after this experience. Thank God that was our only negative thing that we did in Salem. Everything else was very enjoyable. If anyone knows of a place that does a seance like you'd expect where it's in the dark with people holding hands around a candlelit table and "spirits" are summoned, please let me know so we can try it next year.
