Séance Theatre

If you believe what you see on television, the only way to have a ghostly encounter is to stumble around in the dark through a mouldy old house, lugging equipment and hoping for a tiny glimpse of paranormal activity.  It was not always so.  People once gathered in homes or public places, both modest and elegant, to wonder at the mysteries of the spirit world and see if it was possible to make contact.

Some people still do.

Séance is not necessarily scary, though it is suspenseful. It need not happen in a darkened room with everyone holding hands around the table. You won’t be intruded upon by your judgy dead relatives.

Saul draws upon the classical techniques for spirit connection that date back 100 years and more. He also can bring more modern techniques, using electronic equipment that was not available to the pioneering spiritualists. It can be done as a costumed affair or as a more casual event.

It can happen in your home, in a location with a haunted history, or just about anywhere where the group can be isolated. Do a light exploration, like many of the curious did in the 19th century, or do a deep dive. There are so many possibilities!

Imagine sitting by candle-light after a delicious dinner.  Saul Ravencraft, has prepared you with what you need to know and do.  The shadows leap about on the faces of your friends, each waiting and listening.  Everything has been arranged.  Will you receive a sign?  Will the spirits visit and make themselves known?  Will they know you?

Experience Séance Theatre as a private event, or request an invitation to one of our group gatherings where you’ll meet other curious seekers. To arrange a private event, find out about a group event, or get more information, please use our contact form or call the office at 512-996-9019.

Gift Certificates

Give the gift of something weird to someone you love. Saul Ravencraft offers three easy-to-give gifts to take people down the rabbit hole.

Readings

All readings can draw on any of the tools that Saul uses including palmistry, numerology, tarot and oracle cards, and pendulum work. Saul will select the best methods for the question or the recipient can request specific methods to satisfy themselves.

$25 Sample Reading — a simple, one-question reading, similar to what Saul offers at metaphysical fairs and other events. This is perfect for busy people who don’t have a lot of time to explore, or someone who is curious to see what a reading is like. Sample readings can be done at most events, during public office hours, or remotely by phone, email, or video chat. (buy now)

$50 Full Reading Session — a deeper reading that is appropriate for someone who is already familiar with readings or who wants to do some deeper exploration. These sessions generally include grounding and shielding as well as exploration of a question. 

This reading can also include a numerological year in preview,  a month-by month look at what energies to expect over the course of the next year. It’s a perfect gift for new years, birthdays, or any time someone moves through a threshold.

Events

Saul also does parties and events where he can present a program of paranormal entertainment featuring weird tales, bizarre artifacts, and the strange powers of the mind.

$300 Home Paranormal Experience — Saul will go within a 100 mile radius of Austin, Texas to present a program of paranormal entertainment suitable for a small group of people (50 or fewer). It can be presented in a private home or in other venues such as a private party room in a restaurant. For larger programs or distances request a tailored certificate.

Tailored Certificate – If you want to give a certificate for something that you don’t see here we can still arrange it. Use our contact form to tell us what you want to do and we will design a pre-paid certificate just for you. Price will vary with request.

Readings for fun and fortune

palmFor thousands of years mystics have claimed to tell things about people by reading the signs? Is it real? Who knows? It’s fun!

Everyone is curious about what will be seen in their hand, in their cards or other symbols. It’s fascinating. It’s uplifting. It’s mysterious. No one will receive doom and gloom, but encouraging messages about their own strengths and abilities to overcome their challenges.

pendulum_drawingIf palm reading or Tarot don’t fit your event, readings can be done with numbers, pendulums or even something exotic like steampunk gear casting. Readings do not express any kind of religious belief or try to urge your guests to any particular action. They are all about dreams and wishes.

Each participant will get a personal take-away with their reading. These can be customized for your brand or event. Readings can also be designed to reinforce your event goals.

If you’d like to give your guests a more hands-on experience, in addition to readings they can have a mini-workshop that tells them how to look at their own birthday, palm or pendulum.

If you are interested in an individual reading, in person or remotely, Saul will be happy to make a personal appointment.
