New Year WEEKEND Psychic Fair 2015
Saturday, January 17 at 12-6 PM
Sunday, January 18 at 12-6 PM

What does the future hold for you?

Let our gifted Psychics look into your life and future.

Our gifted Mediums will bring messages from those who have crossed over.


 Have you been wondering about your life, your future or even your loved-ones who have crossed over? Come visit us  for our Halloween  Psychic Fair! Our psychics will be happy to answer and focus on any questions which you may need to discuss regarding all areas of your life. Each reading is strictly confidential.


  We have been receiving a lot of questions about our Psychic Fairs due to a surprising increase of interest. 




Our best psychics will be giving 20-minute readings for only $29.  Think about it,  even that price is way too low, considering the quality of our readings and the years of experience that each of them possess.  Keep in mind that you are dealing with people who are keenly aware of their sixth sense and will use this to help you make better decisions and improve the quality of you life.  We are very serious about helping you with the best, well-trained, experienced and gifted psychics.



To get the best possible reading, consider the following:



1.  Please bring at least 5 questions with you to the reading.  If you do not have questions, most of our readers will not read for you. Below you will see an example of topics you may want to ask your psychic.


2.  If you have questions about other people, please bring a picture of those you want to know about.  Pictures can be old, recent and/or have multiple people in them. Pictures may also be presented via your cell phone or through print outs.


3.  Each Reader will ask you if they may hold a personal object that you own.  This object should NOT be previously owned.  Usually cell phones, jewelry, keys and other small METAL  objects will do.  This is called Psychometry and is the most accurate way of giving you a reading.


4.  Please keep in mind that each reading is 20 minutes and is timed by our Psychic Fair Manager.  If you attempt to prolong the reading, you will be charged for the extra time.  Also, others may have appointments directly after yours, so please be courteous and mindful of others when your reader says that "our time is up."


Types of Questions to ask your Reader our Fairs:

Love & Romance

Children, Family and Friends

Your Job & Career


Health predictions  (we are not allowed to diagnose or prescribe, but we can make predictions about your health)

Spirit Communication with your friends and relatives who have crossed over

Guardian Angels

Spirit Guides

Your Future in general

Past-life, Karma, Soul Mates and their relevance to this life


Let our expert psychics look into your future. Love, marriage, children, money, success, or a new job might await you. Our psychics have had years of training and are professionally certified. These gifted psychics are also mediums and will look into the Spirit World for you. Who are your spirit guides? How are they helping you? Are there any messages from your loved-ones on the other side for you? What color is your aura? What does your aura tell us about your health and happiness? Come find out with the rest of this year holds in store for you.


No appointment or reservation  is necessary, just come into the Conference Center with questions and an open mind.

Saturday Message Circle:  7:30 - 8:45 PM    $15 per person

Why not make Saturday evenings just for you? Come to our Healing Circle (see below for details) and then stay for our Message Circle.   If you stay for both you only pay $25.  Getting a healing from one of our healers really helps to relax you and prepare your energies for our Message Circles. Note: TBA means to be announced.


Energy Healing Circles

On Select Saturdays once - twice per month at 6 to7 PM

$10 per person

HSI has reformatted our Energy Healing Circles to include both Reiki and Therapeutic Touch energies. In doing so, we have found these circles to be much more powerful, creating not only a peaceful, healing environment but one which facilitates fast, concrete changes in the lives of those who attend and receive healing form our certified practitioners. At these Healing Circles, we will channel powerful healing energy into your energy field (aura), your physical body and into your life. Our Healing Practitioners will be giving individual healing sessions using either Therapeutic Touch or Reiki techniques. Patrons now receive 1 to 2  healing sessions to deeply empower their healing requests. We also welcome requests to send distance healing to your friends and loved ones not in attendance. Just let us know and we’ll put them in our Healing Book.

A Fresh Start for HSI in Albany-- Going Portable

Now is an exciting time in the history and evolution of HSI in Albany.  First, HSI Albany has moved out of the small office suite on Central Avenue that limited us.  The Board voted to "go portable," as a center, which we feel will bring us into a 21st Century business model.  This model has been successfully used for nearly 15 years in NYC.  Our NYC Psychic Development Program is now being presented in Albany.  This program goes far beyond the evening course program that we had taught in Albany.  Instead, as in NYC, we will be holding our courses and other events on select weekends throughout the calendar year.  For now we will be holding these events at:

Day's Inn Conference Center, 1606 Central Avenue, Colonie

This location is just 1/2 mile west of our previous location and on the same side of the street.  The Board is also looking at a variety of other locations in the Capital District--all hotel conference rooms.  We may be coming to a neighborhood near you soon.  However, for the calendar year of 2014 we plan to hold our events exclusively at the Day's Inn at the above address.  The conference rooms are located behind the reception center, with a full parking lot and free all-day parking.  Here is a view of the outside of the conference room center.

We are all very proud of our decision to go portable and know it will be a great success as we continue to provide the Capital District holistic community with quality classes, services and other events.  This new location is ideal for our needs. 

Upon entering the conference center, you will notice a charming café, a fireplace, and then the conference rooms themselves.  Usually the room we will be in is called the "Saratoga Room."  Public restrooms are just outside the conference room.  We are sure you will enjoy attending our activities at this location.

Please do not contact the Day's Inn with questions regarding HSI. Instead please contact HSI directly at the numbers, address at the top of this page.
