Maris is a full time spiritual counselor known for her unique form of divination called "Rune Casting," a method used by Vikings and Europeans to unlock information about the past, present and future. In "Phase Two" of the show, our own TIM BECKLEY takes us on a trip back through time to the 1970s and his legendary connection with the rock music scene and the occult as music promoter and director of the New York School of Occult Arts and Sciences. He talks about his involvement with the late Walli ELmlark the White Witch of New York, who befriended such celebrity rockers as David Bowie and Marc Bolan and Robert Fripp. She is credited in Bowie's own biography as saving his life when he was tempted by demons, both of the drug variety and those from the bowels of hell. This is one of the few times Beckley has really let his long hair down to discuss his rock music roots and what went on back stage at the Fillmore East and the Academy of Music. Free newsletter -

They look "simple" in terms of modern day aviation, not the sort of craft that should be traveling across the galaxy. Some say they look like pie pans tossed into the air. Others wonder that their son was doing photographed climbing a step ladder. But the "experts" say they are for real and Ma and Pa Kent stuck by their guns up until the day they died. The MacMinnville UFO Festival is second only to Roswell and this year speakers include George Knapp and Bob Lizar. Hey believe it or not -- the photos once appeared in "Life" magazine and if their editors were impressed so should we be! Free newsletter
