UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS CENTER 5031 University Way NE Seattle, Washington 98105 phone: (206) 527-4278
Built in the 1900's
The building first opened its doors as an elementary school in 1903. After 86 years of educating neighborhood children, the school was closed in 1989; becoming a community center in 1990. Now it seems some of its deceased residents have been making themselves known to current occupants. Just recently a disturbing incident happened when the police were called in during the wee hours of the morning on the day after Christmas. This was one of the worst haunting disturbances ever experienced at the University HeightsCenter. This was not just hearing foot steps down the hall when no one is there, seeing odd shadows out of the corner of your eye or even having a chilly breeze pass by when all the doors and windows are firmly shut. As a morning worker came into the building, he was startled by pounding noises and sounds of furniture being thrown around. Thinking that someone had broken into the building, he wasted no time in calling the police. With a bat in hand he waited nervously for them to arrive. As the officers entered the building, they heard the strange noises and ran from room to room with their guns drawn hunting the noisy intruders. They never found anyone in the building, any source of the noise or any furniture out of place. Could this have been the work of the ghosts of University Heights?

Speaking with Spirits through Talking Boards
At age 9, Alison received her first Ouija® board
and began to ponder the age old question: Is it only a game or is it really
possible to use a talking board to make contact with the dead? It was this very
challenge that began a life long fascination with spiritualism and the
paranormal that led to a career that spans over 20 years as a practicing
psychic, medium and Ouija board enthusiast. In the year 2000, Alison along with
husband Ryan, founded the company Speaking With Spirits® to bring their own
ideas and imagery to the creation of talking boards. Together, Alison and Ryan
take you on a journey through the often shrouded history of the Spirit Board,
from its simple beginnings as an intimate parlor game to the often horrific, and
sometimes amusing, depictions in today’s pop culture. You will be offered a
glimpse into the many artistic visions that have marked this popular game, and a
chance to discuss the myths often associated with it. You will be shown how to
properly use a talking board to make contact with the other side. Learn how to
open the board, begin communication, correctly interpret the messages that come
through, and close the session. Participants will be chosen from the audience to
demonstrate their skills with a Speaking With Spirits® talking board.
Participants are invited to ask questions throughout the presentation.
- Author of American Indian Ghost
Stories of the Southwest
has embarked on a journey of the
spiritual and supernatural that has led him down a remarkable path. With a
unique background of being raised in a home with strong traditional ties to the
spiritual world, he took it upon himself to research ghost stories of the
southwest. Antonio's maternal grandfather, a Mescalero Apache, had a major
influence on him. Antonio's paternal grandmother, an Otomi Indian, also inspired
his spiritual direction. During his childhood Antonio was taught by both sets
of grandparents to be cautious and respectful towards spirits, folk healers,
witches and the natural forces of nature. This Native American authors’ current
title: "American Indian Ghost Stories of The Southwest", is the first book of its
kind featuring personal ghost story encounters as told by Native Americans. Mr.
Garcez will be presenting Folklore of the Southwest. “The stories speak for
themselves. Undoubtedly, some of them will arouse curiosity, speculation, fear,
and even cause a few of you to probe further into the subject of the paranormal.
I am content to leave you with more questions than answers. I intend to survey
other regions of the United States and compile a collection of similar stories.
I have no idea where all this research of eye-witness accounts will lead.
Frankly, like you, I am just along for the ride, and thus far it has been a ride
of extraordinary wonder and unexpected amazement.”
Katherine Pacheco - Quantum Physics
will be presenting Quantum Physics,
String Theory and the Paranormal. Katherine is an avid paranormal and
ghost activist and is an Electrical Engineer with a keen understanding of
Quantum Physics and String Theory (it’s one of her diverse interests). An
experienced scientist and engineer, she has a unique ability to take complicated
concepts and frame them to make them easier to understand. Her understanding
and enthusiasm in this area is contagious.
