Paranormal Problems

Recently, I've been reading a lot of negative things about various paranormal groups, and the people in those groups. Anytime you get groups of people together, there's bound to be a certain amount of drama. People don't always get along, especially when they are forced to work as a team on a variety of projects. But it also makes me sad that so many adults have a hard time coming together to work toward a simple goal of understanding the paranormal better. I'm often getting warned to watch out for certain individuals and groups because they like to start fights or get territorial about certain locations, but there really shouldn't be any reason why groups with slightly different procedures and ideals couldn't be tolerant if each other. I've worked with other groups on several occasions and everyone managed to get along and have fun together. It really is up to the people participating in a ghost hunt or event to act with maturity and professionalism. A few bad individuals shouldn't ruin the positive and supportive paranormal community so many people have worked hard to build.

Paranormal Conferences

One of the latest trends in the paranormal is the paranormal conference. If you aren't familiar with them, they are basically places where people who are interested in the paranormal get together to discuss a variety of topics. There are often classes or seminars, people trying to sell goods, and special events tied to the conference. These are held all over the country.

While some conferences are really just out to make money (look out for ones with high admission costs) they can also be great places to meet other people interested in the paranormal, to network with ghost or cryptid enthusiasts, or just learn a thing or two.

If you are involved in the paranormal community, or just interested in learning more about it, a conference can be a great place to try things out.

Have any of you ever attended any sort of professional conference? If so, did you get anything out of the experience?
