Halloween Special – LIVE ‘Ganzfeld’ Sensory Deprivation Experience!

Have you ever experienced something ‘paranormal’?

When someone mentions the term “experiencer” or says, “I know what I saw,” you hear me frequently refer to how my own personal experience with The Ganzfeld Effect brought to life imaginary horrors in my mind on the spot— through a concoction of an active imagination, a love for Lon Chaney Jr’s The Wolfman, and a special fondness for a track on the Alan Parsons Project’s I Robot album.

A feeling of a presence in the room. Something manipulating objects around me. A monster breathing down upon me before the sensation of something sinking its teeth into the front of my neck— an impossibility due to physical numbness left by a neck surgery several years prior. All feelings intense, which could be controlled through adjusting audio levels or simply by removing a light source!  It started with a curiosity, and ended in an understanding of just how well the mind can trick us into believing in a supernatural or alien presence among us.

This Halloween I offer listeners a chance to participate in perhaps the world’s first on-air, mass sensory deprivation experience.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Two ping pong balls, sliced in half (no visible stamps or markings)
  • A red light source (I used an iOS app)
  • A pair of headphones to listen to the program
  • Be in a dark room, with minimal external light sources

Suggested Parameters:

Be healthy, sober, well-rested, and well-fed.

Here’s what’ll happen:

For the first ten minutes of the program, I’ll go through a basic introduction with instructions on how to participate. We will broadcast 20 minutes of white noise, followed by 15 minutes of familiar bumper music— after which I’ll open up the lines to hear your calls.

What Should I Experience?

Some people experience nothing. Others however, have reported experiencing visual & auditory hallucinations, felt presences in a room, felt objects manipulated around them, and felt as if they were interacting with things which simply weren’t there. Some people have a positive experience, while others, like myself, have felt frightened. Again— some people experience absolutely nothing! What will happen?

Join us if you DARE!

WHEN: The show begins Monday, October 31st – 8PM Central (9PM Eastern, 7 PM Mountain, 6 PM Pacific)
