What is your dog trying to tell you? Maybe more than you know. Throughout history, there have been undeniable cases of unexplained or psychic phenomena involving dogs. We’re talking about the real deal - genuine and verified occurrences that make you question how we communicate and perceive knowledge. Learn about Kurwenal from Weimar, Germany, history’s most eloquent dog. Or Jim the Wonder Dog from Missouri, who could even answer questions in Morse Code. How and why do some some dogs attain these powers? Is it true that some dogs can even reappear as ghosts or communicate from beyond the grave? Well, OK, we can’t really answer these questions - but we can give you specific case histories and present theories on them so that you can draw your own conclusions. All-in-all, this lecture will be a strange but riveting journey through canine history.
Award winning author, photographer, and occult historian Paul Koudounaris will talk about this history, accompanied by slideshow images.
