This Ghost Walk will start on Stangl Road and will continue through Turntable Junction, Main Street and more (approximately 15 stops) and 1.2 miles! The Ghost Walk will be guided by real paranormal investigators and you will hear about paranormal stories that have been experienced at the various locations. Limited to 25 people.
Cancellation or refund policy: There is a no refund policy for the Ghost Walk. It is rain or shine. In the event of heavy storms or safety hazards, the rain date for our group is Tues. September 27th*. You can transfer your ticket to another member if you can not attend.

The Official Flemington Ghost Walk is a collaboration between Nikki Steward & Toni Gushue, owners of Within Spirit, Jersey Paranormal Investigations (JPI, a 503c Non-Profit Organization that Nikki & Toni are members of) and Gus Manz who researched much of the tour. They are not members of S.L.A.A. and will not attend the SLAA meeting beforehand. Nikki, Toni & the other members of JPI are experienced in paranormal tours and will provide an amazing experience for the guests on the tours.

Step two says “Came to believe in a power greater than ourselves can restore us to sanity.” This doesn’t say we have to identify who or what our Higher Power is. We just have to believe. We tried to control our life and situations during active addiction. We possibly pushed a belief or trust in anything (if we had) away. In this workshop we will discuss who or where you believe your higher power was at different times of your life. We will also work on finding a connection to anything greater than ourselves by practicing a two way prayer exercise. Bring a paper, journal and pen to make notes if desired.
Any questions, please contact the retreat coordinator.
