"The Victory of Light Expo provides, by far, the region's most extensive and affordable opportunity to explore alternative spirituality in its many forms," says psychic medium Victor Paruta, the expo's founder and executive director. "We make this show fun with live music and dance performances, aura photography, face painting, art exhibits and lots of great shopping. It's a great place to get a psychic reading."

Eight seminars will feature the paranormal, including two led by special guest and first-time presenter at Victory of Light exorcist Bishop James Long, who has appeared on “Ghost Adventures” (Travel Channel), “A Haunted Boy” and “The Possessed” (SyFy Channel documentaries), and numerous other national television and radio programs. Currently, the presiding Archbishop for the United States Old Catholic Church, Bishop Long has performed 27 documented exorcisms. He presents “Demonology & Exorcisms” on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. and “Angels & Demons” on Sunday at 1:00 p.m.

Lewis Mehl-Madrona,MD, PhD, internationally acclaimed author of Coyote Medicine, Coyote Healing and Coyote Wisdom, returns to Victory of Light after several years hiatus. Originally from Cincinnati, he was the youngest graduate of Stanford University School of Medicine and is certified in psychiatry, geriatrics and family medicine. Mehl-Madrona’s work is focused on bringing indigenous peoples’ knowledge about healing into mainstream medicine. He will present two seminars on Saturday, “Miracles of Native American Medicine” (1:00 p.m.) and “The Power of Story: Remapping Your Mind to Change Your Life” (4:00 p.m.). These are just two of 25 seminars covering many aspects of holistic healing.

The ground-breaking film The Secret, which introduced the concept of the Law of Attraction (we attract what we think and believe) to mainstream audiences around the world, will be screened on Saturday at 5:00 p.m. Three seminars will explore this concept from different angles including “Mastering the Law of Attraction: The Missing Tools and Operating in the Zone of Brilliance” with Larry Watson (Saturday, 1:00 p.m.).
