His program was titled:
The Most Haunted Houses of the Southland 
Do you know the ghostly legends of Pasadena, 
Los Angeles, Burbank and Hollywood?

Michael presented stories of real ghosts who haunt Southern California.  He showed slides of real ghosts he's captured on film through the years and talked about haunted hot spots in Beautiful downtown Burbank as well as Pasadena, Hollywood, Glendale and the San Fernando Valley.  He shared what it's like to be a psychic/medium, the ups and downs and the audience was mesmerized.

He signed copies of his latest book the 4th edition of Haunted Houses of Pasadena and printers proof copies of a new book called Haunted Houses of Orange County. 

Here are some of the emails Michael J. Kouri received the day after this prestigious lecture in his home town of Burbank, California.

Hi Michael,
What a fantastic lecture you gave us last night! I was so impressed with what you do and how it all works. I hope the Burbank Library will have you come and speak again and hope that next time you have more time to share more information on who haunts Burbank. I could have listened to you for 4 or 5 hours. You have a wonderful way of communicating, a great voice and an inner honesty. I really like it a lot. Thanks so much again - more power,

Chastity -- Burbank, Ca.

Dear Mr. Kouri,
You're sure an incredible guy! Hats off to the Burbank Library for choosing the ideal person to come and lecture for us. I think you're lecture was the "BEST'" the Burbank Library has ever had! 

Theresa Martinez and her 3 sons --Toluca Lake, Ca

Dear Michael J. Kouri,
I was so impressed with your speech last night at the Buena Vista Branch Library.  You totally captivated the audience for the entire time you spoke and it was so quiet, one could easily hear a pin drop in the auditorium. I applaud you on your honesty to reveal what it's really like to be a psychic/medium. It was so refreshing to hear that you believe that these are God given talents.  Your Mom should be proud!

Lynn Smith--Glendale, Ca. 

Awesome lecture Mr. Michael!
Thanks for helping me to better understand the study of Parapsychology. My wife and I enjoyed meeting you in person at both the Hollywood event and again at the Burbank Library and we hope we can attend other lectures and your tours too. By the way, OI caught you on 4 television shows this past week and was so excited to read about you in the newspaper that you would be speaking in person in two local places.  Awesome!

Dearest Michael,

Wow is all I can say to you for the Fantastic Psychic Reading you did for me over the telephone a few months ago. I had no idea that someone as gifted as you could really exist in the world and am a firm believer now after my session. There is no way in the world you could have known the answers to the questions I asked you and when you described my great grandmother to me I was astounded! There's no way you could have known who she was, what she looked like and the handicap she had either.  I had to email you again and tell you how much the information you provided me has changed my outlook on life. I know I can deal with my cancer as my great grandmother and mother did themselves. I Love your special Cancer for Women Meditation CD too. It has helped me to realize that I can escape when I need too after a hard day of lifes challenges. I'll be recommending you to all my friends.

You are indeed a Gift to the World Mr. Kouri and I wish you all the success and love you give to your clients. -- Darlene Mc Allister, Denver, CO.

*** Thank You Darlene, you're very welcome! Michael J. Kouri

Letters to Michael in response to his appearance on the Coast to Coast Radio show with George Noory 

Hi Michael I heard your interview on the Coast To Coast AM radio with George Noory last week.  I've been listening to Coast To Coast since 1997, and I have to say your interview was one of the best they've ever had. I especially enjoyed your candidness about ghosts, what they are and why they tend to haunt certain places. Intriguing. You have an awesome voice too - are you single? 
- Denise Capanella, Orlando Florida.

Hi Mr. Kouri, That was a great program! Your energy and openness carried the show. I had the impulse to contact you earlier morning, but waited for what was said to sink in. Some questions came to mind: If we are surrounded with electromagnetic Soul energies from ages past, how do you filter out all the contact points? (i.e. Dead People, Animals, Plants) It appears that we are  multi-dimensional beings, and it is with intent that we allow communication, but in doing so, are we subject to the Law of cause and effect? Polymorphism, or multi entities joining together for communication seems possible. How do you manage their messages? In many of the worlds religions/spirituality there is mention of the energizing God force, called by many names, The Word, the Logos, Nad, Nam, Shabd, Music of the Spheres. When receiving information from the other realms, must you consciously contact this Force, or is IT just present and assisting your intent? I do apologize for all the questions, and I respect your time, so do not feel it necessary to reply, Michael. Continued Success! Thanks again for such a thought  provoking program. Jeff

Hi Jeff, Let me see if I can answer your questions: If we are surrounded with electromagnetic Soul energies from ages past, how do you filter out all the contact points? (i.e. Dead People, Animals, Plants) ***The Filtering seems to happen when I enter my trance state. I don't know how to explain it in terms that you could understand but there is always a spirit guide with me when I enter my unconscious state and I believe that they help filter through the contactpoints for me.  

It appears that we are multi-dimensional beings, and it is with intent that we allow communication, but in doing so,are we subject to the Law of cause and  effect? *** Yes, Of course because Cause and Effect is a part of the Human experience, too. We are all conditioned in different ways and we have to adjust to what I'll call "various frequencies." 

Polymorphism, or multi entities joining together for communication seems possible. How do you manage their messages? 
*** I'm not really sure. As I mentioned on the show with George, I'm not entirely sure how my abilities work, I just know how to work with them. I've learned my way through my abilities much like a blind person would learn how to work with his/hers and have rarely met others who are like me, or who are on my psychic level.  That's why I mentioned that I hope to someday meet a scientist who is studying in this area, I have always been the type of person who wants to know how things work. I remember taking apart an antique clock that never kept accurate time when I was a child to figure out how it worked.  Then I was able to put it all back together without help and I actually figured out how to make it keep accurate time. But I have no conscious memory of how I did it. I just did. This seems to be common in playing musical instruments too. I can play anything you put in front of me within just a few minutes.I attribute this to past lives. But on a scientific level, I believe that our brains are much more powerful than we give credit. If past lives are real, it would make sense that I have retained information from the past and am utilizing it in the present. To most people,that sounds so "Science Fiction," but to me its logical.  

When receiving information from the other realms, must you consciously contact this Force, or is IT just present and assisting your intent? 

***I have taught myself how to turn On the ability and how to turn it Off as well. I'm including my rates for readings just in case you are interested or know of someone who might like to experience it for themselves.   Best to you and yours, Michael Kouri

Dear Michael,I was blown away again!  You actually took the time to answer  my questions...  You are indeed a rare individual!  Thank you, Thank you.  And, thank those wonderful souls who are assisting you.I hope I can return the favor, Michael...Here is a book and author I recommend as part of your/our journey:God's Whisper; Creation's Thunder: Echoes of Ultimate Reality in the New Physics by Brian Hines Out of print, but the author is living and the book can be obtained. Mr. Hines is both scientist/mystic, maybe he can help you with your understanding of your gift using science/spiritual science...Best to you and yours, Jeff Kunz Maryland.

***My second reply to Jeff Wednesday March 24, 2004

You're very welcome Jeff, and thanks for the book titles, I'll certainly look into finding them. I appreciate your kindness and wish you all the success the world has to offer you.
Michael J. Kouri

Hello Michael,   While surfing the web I was directed to your site.  I found it to be a meaningful contribution to the world of parapsychology. We need more wonderful people like you in the world. Thank you for all you do to help humankind. Then I heard your interview on Coast to Coast and realized I'd heard you on the Mother Love show many years ago. I was so pleased to hear the high energy in your voice today as yesterday and wish you much success in all that you do.
Forever yours, Renee Zimmerman - New York, N.Y.

Thank you for a very interesting interview on Coast to Coast I'd like to book a telephone reading with you.  (I will be tired at work today, but it was well worth staying up to hear you, I’I've seen you on many television shows - thank you!!)  Judy - Maryland.

Dear Michael J. Kouri,  I heard you on Thursday morning March 11, 2004 at 5:12 AM on Coast to Coast with George Noory.... Only heard a few minutes of your program. I've never seen spirits or ghosts but have sometimes had chills in some places.  The chills happen when I'm thinking that there might be some entity present. But my question is this:  In 53 years on this planet, why have I never seen ANY spirits or ghosts?  Why have I never felt ANY connection with my deceased relatives?  Even though I've TRIED to be sensitive, and even though I BELIEVE - actually KNOW - that such spirits/ghosts/presences exist, I just never see or feel them to the point of really KNOWING that they're there. Why is that? Ken

My reply: 
Dear Ken, 
 Many people try to be spiritual and open and never see or feel a thing.  I believe that some people try too hard to "see" spirits. My advice to you is don't worry about it. Just knowing what you believe to be truth is more important than being psychic, seeing spirits and the rest. 

I love helping people with my gifts, but there are those times I wish I was just like everyone else. Perhaps there is someone in your area whom you can study with. I offer several spiritual seminars that teach people the right way to meditate and "open" to the other side safely. You need to learn to ground yourself before you try to do anything in this arena. It can be dangerous - maybe you have a subconscious fear of actually seeing a spirit. But whatever the case,  I hope this helps you Ken, feel free to email me anytime - I don't have all the answers but am glad to try to help.  Though I am a professional psychic/medium, I'm still a student like you.   Michael J. Kouri
Now Michael Offers you a chance to experience a Communication Circle  (Seance) with him...
You've seen Michael Communicating with spirits on national & international television, now you can meet Michael J. Kouri in person as he conducts a Communication Circle (a term he created to better explain a Seance.) In your own home, office as a fundraiser, or a private party.  Since the age of 16, Michael has been sought out to conduct these communication sessions for the Rich and Famous, Royalty, Presidents and Average People Alike in private and on Television  as he did with Meredith Vieira on Barbara Walter's Daytime Talk Show 
"The View," Gene Simmons Family Jewels, and more...Now you can attend or host a session with Michael J. Kouri yourself. 

Requirements: A Minimum of 4 people  (open minded to spirituality) It takes the energy of everyone around the table for the spirits to come through.  Using a variety of tools for spirit-communication including: highly sensitive tape recorder to capture EVP's, objects connected with your loved one, candles, incense and perhaps Michael will bring his Antique Seance Trumpet that he inherited from a British Medium.   

These Special sessions can be held in homes/offices or other places, however this isn't recommended for anyone who is mentally challenged. Michael will bless the space before and after at no extra price to ensure your home/setting is spirit free when he's finished. You and your guests will be able to ask questions of the spirits and perhaps help them make their final transition into the afterlife.  

What to Expect: You and your friends will receive psychic readings from Michael with the aid of your spirit-guides. Remember when working with a Medium, the answers to your questions come through the Medium from your guides-he's only  the tranaslator for the spirits. Michael believes that no matter what any psychic tells you (whether it is him or another) the information isn't set in stone because you're in control of your own destiny and can make something happen or not. Michael NEVER tells you Negative things and works with the current events in your life. He'll only predict 6 months into your future. You can discuss Past Lives  if you wish. Unlike other psychics who only reply on the Tarot or a crystal ball, Michael reads Energy and will read your Aura, tell you how to balance and focus on your current issues.  Bringpad and pen to take notes during the session. Video/tape recorders will not be permitted since they interfere with spirit activity. Bring Photos of loved ones/pets to hear about their energy as well. 
Age: adults ages 18 & up. Requires a minimum of  4 and a maximum of 7people
Price: Depends on location of Communication Circle
Email Michael at or call our offices at to discuss the details at

World-renowned Psychic/Medium & Author Michael J. Kouri conducts a Communication Circle (Séance) at the Historic Whaley House in 
San Diego, Ca.

Reflections by Michael J. Kouri and SOHO member David Marshall 

On a warm May night as the sun sank behind the Pacific, we began our efforts to communicate with the dead at the world famous Whaley House in Old Town San Diego. Michael has visited this historic site, known as the Most Haunted House in America, since the age of 8 and has seen, heard, and sensed the spirits of the Whaley family and others in and around the haunted house ever since. He was invited to perform one of his world famous Communication Circles (his mild term for a Seance) as he has performed them on television shows throughout hit career. We members of the board of directors of the Whaley House, gathered and waited for Michael and his Spirit Guides to tell each of us where to sit. The Communication Circle was to take place in the Court House attached to the Whaley House, around a large wooden table which sits in front of the Judge's bench. The seating was tight for Mr. Kouri and my 12 fellow curious SOHO board members, like myself. 

We were sitting quietly in the glow of candlelight waiting for the evening’s main event, The Convocation of Souls or as Michael calls them a Communication Circle to begin

The host was Michael J. Kouri, famous Psychic-Medium Parapsychological Investigator who is also the published author of 65 books related to his personal encounters and paranormal research.  Michael and his associates, most of whom were members of a paranormal research society included retired scientists from Caltec and JPL had submitted a proposal to SOHO to conduct an investigation of the long rumored ghosts who haunt the Whaley House. 

The co-organizer of the event asked if the session could be videotaped which was allowed. Some of Mr. Kouri's early personal encounters with the ghosts in this world famous landmark can be read in Mr. Kouri's newest book "Historical Ghosts Along California's Coast" (due for release on Halloween of 2018) which include his early experiences with the Whaley ghosts and others who haunt the house, grounds and most of Old Town San Diego) Mr Kouri co-authored Haunted Alcatraz and has been featured in other books about the Whaley House. Their intent was to monitor and record any paranormal activity as part of an ongoing investigation. Also in attendance was  internationally known television journalist, anchor and thrill-seeker: Michelle Garforth, of Australia who has done work for The Travel Channel, The Discovery Channel and ESPN, eager to witness the Whaley spirits. 

At the dark table Michael laid out the ground rules (or below-ground rules) for all of us who were new to this, open your mind, don’t be scared, hold hands, don’t cross your legs and try to think of “yes” or “no” questions that the spirits might want to answer. Michael spoke calmly and directed each of us into a meditation for our own safety and noted that we should watch our toes and keep away from the table legs in the event that the spirits would want to use the table as a tool of communication in answer to our questions.  He also told us that spirits are often times known to raise and lower tables during the normal course of events sometimes referred to as “table-tipping.” 

We were also told to remove all watches and metal jewelry because we could inadvertently get “burned by the increased energy” in the room. He instructed us that it takes the energy from everyone present to bring the spirits through – if they were comfortable with our energy and wanted to make contact and if anyone got scared during the event, Michael said they should just quietly leave the room, preferably not screaming. 

The table was littered with tape recorders, a digital thermometer, an electromagnetic field meter, a compass, feathers, three candles, and a toy cradle and an antique seance trumpet that hopefully would be manipulated by our ghostly guests. After our orientation Michael spoke directly to the spirits as if inviting them to be with us, and instructing them how to communicate with us. They were told to communicate by raising or lowering the flame of the middle candle or by moving the table, chandelier, doors or other objects in the room or knocking on the walls to let us know they were with us. We all nearly jumped out of our skins as we heard distinct knocking sounds on the ceiling knowing full well we were the only living, breathing people in the building and only in that particular room.  Michael closed his eyes and instructed us to do the same as he lead us into a relaxed state of what he called a Protection Meditation, then he entered a trance and after about 5 minutes he let us know there was a lot of energy in the room.  It was about 9 pm and our Convocation of Souls had officially begun. 

One by one we went around the table, each of us asking questions. Many of the initial questions were to determine who among the list of historical dead figures were joining us. The first 20 minutes were quite uneventful and Michael had told us at the beginning this might happen, that it takes the full concentration of everyone sitting around the table to focus. The center candle barely moved, and the room was quiet (except for the Cinco de Mayo clean-up crews outside on the street).  It’s not easy to think of questions to ask of the dead. “How’s the weather?” “Do you haunt here often?” Michael warned us not to ask how the ghosts had died because it might upset them since (in true Sixth Sense-speak) “some of these people don’t even know they’re dead.” 

In an attempt to broaden our discussion with the spirits I asked, “Did George W. Bush really win the election?” The candle flickered a “yes,” and Michael noted, “ghosts can be biased too, and we all laughed.” Michael’s reading of the candle flame fluctuations was far from definitive but we all understood what he was trying to do here and were just as excited to see something, anything happen. As if to double check the answers of the spirits, he kept asking, “was that a ‘yes’?” or “was that a ‘no’?” and we all watched with amazement as the flame jumped up or down as if in answer to his questions. Michael was sitting on the farthest side  of the table, too far from it to manipulate it and everyone was quite impressed in watching the flame on the center candle dance up and down once the spirits made their presence known.

Questions then began to get what appeared to be more emphatic answers, in the form of noises and movements from the table and around the room. First we heard a rapid tapping sound from the middle of the table. It first sounded like creaking wood, but it was too rhythmic and fast. It was like someone tapping out Morse code with pencils. All of our hands were flat atop the table and in clear view, so the night was starting to get interesting. The table antics then got more dramatic. The tapping seemed to travel around the table and we began to see and feel the table vibrating. One woman said it felt “like an aftershock to an earthquake.” Several times we could see the corner of the table nearest Michael lift up and fall back with a bang as the leg hit the floor but then it lifted up on the other end nearest Michelle and dropped as if in answer to my query as to how this was happening. The light-hearted nature of our séance suddenly got more serious. 

Many of the SOHO members were frightened when the action started but Michael reminded us not to get scared and Pat, one of the paranormal investigators, commented that this was pretty tame compared with her past experiences. The tapping and shaking continued. Questions were asked if Thomas and Anna Whaley were with us as well as “Yankee” Jim Robinson who, was hanged at the site before the house was built. Questions about Violet Whaley, Thomas and Anna’s daughter who reportedly committed suicide as a young woman on the property, brought even more aggressive responses. The rattling was louder and quick, the chandelier in the room, which had been still all night, began to swing casting shadows on the 4 walls surrounding us. It was as if that entire room came to life at our urging questions with Michael J. Kouri as the orchestra leader.

Having been a witness to the evening’s events, I must admit that I don’t have a logical explanation for what I heard and saw. The candle flame was quite convincing, especially since it was in the middle of the long low table far away from anyone’s breath, and the table noises, movements and shadows defied easy explanation. Even though the part of the table that raised and dropped was at either end of the table near Michelle or Michael, his hands were flat on the table and his legs were not near the corner that lifted. 

                   It was an Astounding Experience and one I will never forget! 

During a break I looked under the table and sat in Michael’s seat. He is a very tall man way over 6 feet and had to sit with his long legs spread apart  (must have been quite uncomfortable) because he was so tall and the table is very low - his legs wouldn’t fit underneath. My knee could easily reach the bottom of the table, but I wasn’t able to lift the corner like I’d witnessed. There were two non-psychics sitting next to the moving corners and if they were making it move I don’t see how. Plus the rapidness of the shaking and tapping would make it near impossible for someone to use their leg without it being obvious. 

The spirits apparently wandered off during our intermission because the table rattling didn’t resume and the candle remained still. Our night of communicating with the dead was drawing to a close. As Regis might have asked, “Is that your final rattle?” The evening’s drama was not exactly an episode of “The X-Files,” but it was still a fascinating experience. Michael, Rob, Pat and the others were enthusiastic and seemed genuinely interested in documenting unexplainable phenomena at the Whaley House. Earlier in the evening I had asked the investigators and scientists how the Old Town landmark compared to the many other haunted sites they’d investigated and written about. “On a scale of 1 to 10,” they told me, “this house is probably a 15.” 

The Whaley House is open to visitors but call them  ahead of time to find  the museum hours of operation and be sure to tell them you heard about them on Michael ’s website!
