A View From The Other Side at this Weekend's Psychic Faire In Salem (VIDEO ADDED)

Residents and visitors can look forward to an afternoon of fun and enlightenment.

(SALEM, Ore.) - If you have ever been curious about astrology, tarot cards, or the fascinating netherworld where psychics dial in to "the other side", you'll want to attend the Third Psychic Faire in Salem this Saturday.

The groups that came together for the special event are the Tea Party Bookshop and SynergetInc. It happens Saturday, September 26th, from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Tad Stuck with the The Tea Party Bookshop, said, "We have an incredible program, with local psychics, astrologists, channelers, tarot readers, energetic healers and more."

Stuck says this is the perfect opportunity to meet a wide array of talented individuals, ask questions, set up a session, and learn something new – whether you are experienced or not.

There will be mini-readings available for $5, and a great lineup, according to Stuck.

"At 5:00 p.m. our keynote speaker, the renowned hypnotherapist and personal development trainer, Kerie Logan, will speak on the practical use of self-hypnosis."

He says Kerie there will be drawings and giveaways for self-help CD's, class registrations and also gift certificates for Tea Party Bookshop.

More information about the faire and the resident psychics and readers can be viewed at:

Stuck encourages residents and visitors to come check to the event for an afternoon of fun and enlightenment.

The Tea Party Bookshop is located in an historic Salem, Oregon building, at the corner of Liberty and Ferry Streets in downtown Salem. There is a parking garage on the NW corner of Ferry Street and Liberty.

Often colorful, sometimes dark, but always mysterious; clairvoyants have existed throughout history in all cultures.

Controversial, depending on the time period, their acceptance by the public tends to range between intrigue and dangerous rejection.

But recent years have seen people with psychic abilities spending less time being persecuted, and more time writing books, hosting television shows, and successfully working with police to solve crimes and locate bodies. Join them for this special event.

They are not making false claims? I see some false claims in this article. Psychics have not helped police solve crimes. Many police departments around the world have released official statements saying that they do not regard psychics as credible or useful on cases. The article also assumes that the psychics actually have the powers they claim to have. This article is an example of how the media is often in bed with the psychic industry.
The editor admits to knowing the people putting this together. This appears to be a conflict of interest and is a breach of journalistic ethics.

Tim King: I let people know about an event, OK?  Why are you so overzealous about this?  When I worked for KATU, the ABC station in Portland, Oregon, I covered two significant paranormal investigations.  I have been writing about a lot of things for a long time.  This isn't about Sylvia Browne you know, this is a local event.  I am restraining myself from telling you what I really think about your 'breech of journalistic ethics' comment.  Do you have any idea who I am?  Man, just back up or I'll flush your comments quicker that you can say 'boo'.  Now, if you are angry about this because there are people on 1800 lines trying to zap credit cards for astrological readouts, then I agree.  But short of that, this is an event in Salem that allows people to drop in and learn a thing or two.  What they draw from it is their business.  I founded this news organization five years ago and I know an awful lot of people.  You honestly think a reporter is unethical if they report about an individual that they know?  You think people in news live in little isolated closets?  That is ludicrous.  I approve these comments and I think you can tell that I'm irritated, so let it go.

Sounds like an interesting and fun event. People need to take the time to learn for themselves what this is all about, see you there!

If your really curious about tarot cards, I would not recommend psychics. Psychics have this habit of presenting a false history of tarot cards and the media should stop presenting the disortions of psychics as fact. The truth about tarot is that they were originally intended for card games which are still played in many European countries. It would be a good thing if the media would educate people on how tarot cards are used for games instead of always promoting psychics.

Editor: First, most media outlets won't touch the subject.  Secondly, this is a great event, I know the people who are putting it together and they are very educational and positive.   They are not making any false claims, and you really should not conclude that we are trying to do that.  Tarot cards are one mentioned aspect of the faire and that is it.  People should go find out for themselves.  This is not the kind of even that comes along every day.
