American psychic and spiritual teacher Sylvia Browne is stopping at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre on April 2 as part of her 50th anniversary tour.
An author, lecturer and researcher in the field of parapsychology, this will be the first visit by Brown to the area, said event promoter F.J. Hurtak of Kootenay Concerts, adding he has been trying to book a tour with Browne for many years since he attended one of her lectures in Calgary.
“There were about 2,200 people in the building, and I was likely one of the biggest skeptics there, but once you get a chance to listen to her and then see her in action, you quickly realize that she has abilities that can give all of us an insight into our own lives, and the other side,” he said. “This will be a truly remarkable evening, and a once in a lifetime chance for Vernon residents to see someone with such a unique gift.”
Said to have manifested her psychic abilities at the age of three in her hometown of Kansas City, Browne shared her gift with friends and family for many years before helping other people to see their future.
In 1974, she founded the Nirvana Foundation for Psychic Research, a nonprofit organization (now known as the Sylvia Browne Corporation). Since then she has helped thousands of people gain control of their lives, live more happily, understand the meaning of life, and to find God in their own unique way.
Browne’s philosophy of life is based on research into past lives, via hypnosis, and through the information obtained via her deep trance channeling ability. She accepts reincarnation as a central theme in her philosophy, yet this belief is never forced upon anyone who does not want to hear it.
Browne has appeared on numerous television programs including Unsolved Mysteries, That’s incredible, Larry King Live, Oprah Winfrey, and was a weekly guest on the Montel Williams Show for more than 17 years. She has published more than 60 books resulting from her research into parapsychology, with 22 appearing on the New York Times bestsellers’ list.
