Victory of Light Psychic Festival, among largest metaphysical conventions, coming Nov. 17-18

People may turn to psychics, mediums, and clairvoyants to connect with the spirit world—but what many people don’t know is that they, too, can develop skills and techniques to connect with the spiritual realm themselves.

Mediums Chad Seibert of Cincinnati and Karen Kenny of Crestview Hills will be sharing many of these techniques and practical exercises during their seminar, “Mediumship Readings: Journey to the Other Side,” at the upcoming Victory of Light Psychic Festival.



Victory of Light is one of the nation’s largest metaphysical conventions for the general public. Featuring 300 psychics, healers, and exhibitors, it is also the region’s 13th largest convention based on annual attendance. The expo returns on November 17 and 18 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Sharonville Convention Center.

Seibert is a certified medium with the United Spiritualists of the Christ Light Church in Cincinnati and Kenny is a nationally known medium with more than three decades of experience. 

The two local mediums have designed the interactive workshop for all skill levels, whether it’s someone looking to understand mediumship, a newcomer to spiritual development and intuitive arts or an experienced medium seeking to continue to grow.

“Seibert and Kenny are two of the region’s most accurate psychic mediums, and they are passionate about spiritual and mediumship development. November’s Victory of Light Expo features over 100 experts. You will not find a more affordable and extensive opportunity to learn about the psychic and holistic arts and sciences anywhere else,” said Victor Paruta of Clifton, psychic and Victory of Light founder.

Featured in dozens of articles and publications to date, Paruta is a highly sought after and respected psychic medium who is a regular guest on radio and television, including shows such as ABC’s “The View.” He’s also been named “Best Psychic” by Cincinnati Magazine.

Seibert and Kenny’s workshop will take place at 1 p.m. on Sunday. Free to attend, it will also include a demonstration of mediumship for attendees.

“The most popular presentations are always the free demonstrations of psychic abilities, and these are presented hourly throughout the weekend,” said Paruta. “But this expo’s record-setting 97 seminars include topics such as astrology, past life regressions, angels, spirit guides, stress reduction techniques, aromatherapy, and much more. There really is something for everyone,” explained Paruta.

Paruta’s popular “Ask a Psychic” session will be at 2 p.m. Sunday. Other seminars hosted by Kentucky mind, body and spirit experts include:

 Wendy Cleveland of Walton will present “Channeling: The Lord Speaks” at 4 p.m. Sunday


 Stephanie Smith of Covington who will present “Everyday Spirituality:  How to Make Room for a Spirit-Led Life” at 2 p.m. Sunday


 Thomas Freese of Louisville will present “Mystery of Celtic Art” at 1 pm. Sunday


 Larry Watson of Alexandria will share “The Art of Victory with the Law of Attraction: A Pathway to Personal Peace When Your World Goes Crazy” at 2 p.m. Saturday

Local exhibitors include Ann Baumbach of Cold Spring, an animal communicator and psychic reader; Terry Hatton of Crestview Hills, a clairvoyant; Sue Murphy of Crestview Hills, a Reiki healer; and Deborah Williams of Florence, an astrologer, among many others.

The November 17 and 18 expo also features prominent speakers including:

 Julie Rieger, award-winning president, chief data strategist, and head of media at 20th Century Fox, responsible for marketing films such as “Avatar” and “Deadpool”. Rieger experienced a series of shocking encounters with the spirit world after the death of her mother, which she chronicles in her new memoir, The Ghost Photographer. She presents “The Wild Side of the Other Side,” at 1 p.m. Saturday.

 Dr. Mark Pitstick, authority on death and dying, who will introduce the SoulPhone, a revolutionary spirit-communication technology developed at the University of Arizona. (11 a.m. Saturday.) He will also lead participants to their own answers about ten areas of their lives using guided hypnosis at noon on Saturday. (2 Hours, $20.) 


 Chief Golden Light Eagle, a Sundance and Hereditary Chief of the Yankton Sioux Nation of South Dakota, will present spiritual knowledge gained through a lifetime of prayer and ceremony at noon, Saturday and Sunday.

“With sessions on holistic healing, life purpose and dealing with negative energy, as well as live music, art exhibits, book signings and shopping, we’ve created a diverse, fun, family-friendly event. It really is a one-of-a-kind, transformational learning experience,” said Paruta.


Expo tickets, $15 daily/$25 for both days, are available at the door, and include admission to all of the seminars except four two-hour workshops ($20). Parking is free; overflow parking is available at the Sharonville Convention Center’s overflow parking lot across the street and at Princeton High School.
