Inside Goings On:

The Seer Show
Bath House Theater <> 2 to 4 pm

Communicating with the spirit world and those who have passed on is an ancient practice present in all cultures. John Cappello presents simple, modern access to that dimension. In the style of James Van Pragh, he channels views from the other side and guides attendees into making connection with those who have passed on. People come away amazed.

Through his use of clairvoyance, clairaudience, remote viewing and psychometry we are able to learn about ourselves and loved ones that may have crossed over into the spirit world. It is when people receive undeniable evidence that can only come from those in spirit that even the most skeptical begins to seek further communication with those living in the spirit dimension.

John Cappello has been involved with metaphysics for over 15 years. He may reached for private sessions at 972-877-9785. Hone your own intuition through the Dallas Visionary Meetup.

Opening up for John Capello is the flip side of his seer skills, the comedy of Ashlie Rhey, showcasing her targeted humor to the new age community. You can catch more of Ashlie's intuitive humor in her online sitcom adventures in angelic communication, "Daisy Power". Her film credits include starring, lead and supporting roles in more than 80 film, stage, cable, video and internet productions

Tickets are $20. Seating is limited. Buy tickets in advance by credit card here or at the event by cash or credit card. Doors open at 1:45 pm. Early arrival recommended for a good seat.
