Getting the Spooks

I'm cleaning up the debris from our annual Halloween party, and the holiday has me thinking a lot about the paranormal. (Okay, it might also be my current "Twilight" obsession.) Now, it's true that Indianapolis isn't exactly known for embracing such things, but you do have a few options if you'd like to expand your horizons.

One place to start is the local School of Metaphysics, which offers classes on dream interpretation, ghosts and visualization, among other topics.

Or, take a haunted tour of Indianapolis, with tour company Unseen Press. I did the walking tour of central downtown a few months ago, and it was suitably creepy. I'll never think of the Slippery Noodle in the same way again.

Want a less ghostly option? Stop by New Age People at 86th and Ditch for a palm reading, aura photograph or interesting class. You never know what you might unearth here.

If you're looking for a day trip or weekend getaway, head to Camp Chesterfield, "your gateway to the enlightenment of spiritualism." You can take your pick of classes here: runes, numerology, astrology, psychic readings, seances, crystals and everything else you can think of. There's a weekend retreat coming up in a few weeks, and a psychic fair the first Saturday of each month.
Happy haunting!
