2nd Annual HPI Northern California Paranormal Conference at the Brookdale Lodge!

Sponsored by HPI International (formerly HPI Paranormal Investigations of Northern California)
Voted by YOU, top ten in America at Haunted America Tours!:
Featured Paranormal group for Feb. 2008:

You do not want to miss this!

Here's what Paul Dale Roberts has to say:

When everyone goes to the Brookdale Lodge, now called the Brookdale Inn and Spa, on May 16-18, 2008, you will have an exciting time finding hidden rooms and secret passageways that the Mafia used during their heyday! The gangsters had secret meetings and actual executions that would take place in these secret rooms to eliminate the rats from their organization! And YOU get to explore them all!

Al Capone and many assorted gangsters hung out at the World Famous Brookdale Lodge. Movie stars such as Marilyn Monroe and even President Herbert Hoover came to the Brookdale! President Hoover was even invited to fish in the stream that runs through the Brookroom!

One of the most famous ghosts of the Brookdale Lodge is Sarah. Her full name is Sarah Johnson, she was age 9, when she fell into the creek that ran through the Brookroom. She hit her head and was killed in the 70 foot brook that runs smack through the lodge! Her spirit has manifested in front of many guests and the last time HPI was at the Brookdale, one of our investigators captured an EVP that may have been Sarah!

Go to to listen!

Our psychics tell us that there are over 50 spirits that reside at the Brookdale Lodge! Holy cow, wouldn't it be AWESOME to capture one on film or EVP! Well, you can rest assured that you will be surrounded by ghosts and you have to be dead not to catch one!

The Brookdale Lodge has been featured on A&E, History Channel, Discovery Channel and many other stations. This is one of the most haunted hotels in California!! You can most always get ghostly evidence any time day or night!

Stories have been told how Mafia murder victims were actually buried under the floorboards!! Remember everyone, not only will you be listening to great icons like Loyd Auerbach, Nancy Bradley, Richard Senate, and more but there will be a swimming & dance party in the Plunge Parlor with DJ music, we will have a great lunch buffet in the Brookroom, we have the live band, Sol Terrain, ready to swing dance you into the late evening hours... and don't forget to come dressed
as your favorite Dead Celebrity! We have some incredible vendors, Aura Photography, Earthcentral, Ghostly Jewelry, Books, CD's, DVD's, souvenir photos by Holly and much more! We will have ghost hunting activities ALL NIGHT LONG!! Have you ever wanted to ghost hunt with Loyd Auerbach Question
Well now is your chance!

I went on the cruise of a lifetime last August and, yes, I had a blast!  Not only was I blessed with the endless glories of Alaska, once again - but I had the absolute pleasure of meeting some awesome people!  What more would you expect from a Spiritual cruise?   It was everything I had dreamed of and so much more.  I wanna go again---are we there yet?

This album is incomplete and I'll be adding much more to it as time permits.

~Peace and love~

For a spirit so free
and heart so true
bountiful blessings
bestowed to you!

Rich, lavish gardens
with lavender and thyme
sounds of mother nature
forming rhythm and rhyme

Long, peaceful walks
gathering endless treasures
moonlit nights
and other such pleasures

I wish you a lifetime
of clear surprise
sending butterfly kisses
to each of your eyes
