Victor Paruta leads his popular "Ask A Psychic" seminar.

Explore the intuitive arts and sciences in a family-friendly environment of joy and fun.

The Victory of Light Expo is one of the largest and longest-running metaphysical conventions in the country. Established by Victor Paruta in 1992, the April 16 and 17 expo features more than 50 free seminars on the intuitive arts, including Animal Communication, Crystal Reading, Past Lives, Meditation, Modern Mystics, Extraterrestrials, Mediumship and Angels. Two paranormal seminars with a local twist are “Ghosts of Cincinnati: The Dark Side of the Queen City” presented by Teri Casper and Dan Smith, authors of the book by the same title and owners of Haunted Cincinnati Tours, and “Paranormal Road Trips From Cincinnati” by Jeff Craig, publisher of the Hidden Ohio Map & Guide. There are sixteen seminars on holistic health and healing, from “Vitamin Crazed,” a seminar by internationally recognized holistic clinical pharmacist Dr. Cathy Rosenbaum, to Reflexology by Himavat Ishaya of The Sages Touch. Renowned veterinarian Dr. Linda Bender will talk about “Animals & Healing,” focusing on her recent work with the Sacred White Lions of Timbavati in South Africa. One of the outstanding features of Victory of Light is the more than 200 exhibitors offering psychic readings, healings and merchandise for body, mind and spirit. Live entertainment takes place throughout the weekend. The event is open from 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. on April 16 and 17 at the Sharonville Convention Center.

Admission is $12 for one day or $20 for both days. Seniors and student receive a $2 discount. Parking is free. Complete details about the expo, including links to presenters’ and exhibitors’ websites and a detailed seminar schedule are available at or by calling 513-929-0406. The Victory of Light Expo can also be found on Twitter and Facebook.

"This expo really embodies the full spirit of what Victory of Light has done since its beginning, and that is to provide the public with opportunities to explore the intuitive arts and sciences in a family-friendly environment of joy and fun," comments Paruta.

Certainly one of the most popular aspects of the Expo is the wide variety of readings and readers, including Psychics, Clairvoyants, Mediums, Animal Communicators, Past Life Readers, Spirit Artists, a Forensic Profiler, Tarot Readers, Numerologists, Medical Intuitives and Astrologers. Other techniques demonstrated at the Expo include Psychometry (reading the energy of objects), Channeling and Palmistry. Paruta’s seminar “Ask A Psychic,” Sunday at 2:00 p.m., is always standing room only.

Tibetan monks from the Gaden Khachoe Shing monastery in Bloomington, Indiana, and Cincinnati, Ohio, offer their unique and meaningful gifts and artifacts. They will also hold Buddhist Healing sessions on Saturday and Sunday at 11:00 a.m. and a Discovering Buddhism seminar on Sunday at 4:00 p.m. A $10 donation is suggested to benefit their work in the community.

Instrumental in introducing new age, metaphysical and holistic health experts and information to Cincinnati for nearly 20 years, this Expo features fifteen first-time seminar presenters and seventeen new seminar topics, including:
