Many of the Symposium’s guest speakers, including Bill Murphy, Stan Romanek, Lisa Romanek, Travis Walton, Joshua Warren, Micah Hanks, Scotty Roberts, Patty Greer, and many others will be joining us as we spend a chilly night (this is after all, Scotland – so dressing warmly would be a really good idea) under one of the most beautiful star canopies you can imagine, just watching the night sky for anything out of the norm.

We are also planning to arrange for  a video stream to the Internet for anyone who cannot be there to share the night or any of the exciting moments we may be able to capture.

Mary King’s Close is infamous for its tales of ghosts and unexplained happenings. One of the earliest and best documented stories concerns the Coltheart family and took place 40 years after the last outbreak of plague in Edinburgh when people were already claiming to have seen spectres and nameless terrors in the close.Spirits, Shadows & Secrets International Symposium will set out to investigate Mary King’s Close with three (3) of the best paranormal investigators/researchers ever assembled at one location.

These three teams will consist of only twenty (20) people, and will be led by none other than Joshua Warren, Micah Hanks, and David Weatherly. Their goal: to learn what evidence can be discovered regarding the trials-and-tribulations of the Colthearts who are purported to be haunting Mary King’s Close and causing many to hear scratches coming from inside a chimney where a child sweep is said to have died. Joining them on their teams will be three of the best psychic empaths, Chip Coffee, Robert Cracknell, and Michelle Griffin.

These three teams will separate into the three areas of the cemetery, Covenanter’s Cemetery, Greyfriars Kirk Cemetery, and the grounds of what used to be the George Herios Hospital and is now part of the Edinburgh City College. Their goal: to retrieve evidence supporting the claims that these three burial areas are in fact the world’s most haunted!
