View Full Version : Should I go? (to a seminar)
04-19-2004, 08:01 AM
I tried posting before and think I messed up so, if my post is somewhere else on here, sorry for the repeat!!
I have a ticket to the New Orleans seminar and I was wondering if people here think that making the trip by myself would be worth it? I am close to the stage so can see him but wondering ifyou gain anymore from going than you would by say, watching his show?
With so many people attending, I just doubt I would get a reading. I have always been a fan and wanted some feedback from those that have attended his big seminars.

If you have any doubts that maybe the TV show is "fixed" - either by tricky editing or by planting actors in the audience, then attending a seminar will show you that what you see on TV is what you see live. It's also nice to feel the energy in the room - if you are sensitive to such. And if you can see auras - then you are in for a big treat when you get to see John in person.
I attended a seminar by myself a few years ago. Even though I believed JE was real, it just reaffirmed it all for me.

I had a blast at the SF seminar last August. That's awesome that you have seats so close. For me it was a fantastic experience to see him live and in person. He is even funnier in person because he doesn't have to worry about being censored. I didn't get a direct reading, but I definitely had a great time. If you are asking my opinion I think you should go!
All the best,
Anne, I personally think there is always something to be gained by seeing John Edward in person. Each seminar is a learning experience in itself. :)
Remember that it's best to go without any expectations, however. There is never any guarantee that you'll get a reading, regardless of the size of the crowd. Those who are supposed to get a reading will get one. You could be setting yourself up for disappointment if you're only attending in the hopes of being read.
You may want to read through some of the posts by our members who have attended seminars in the past and have not been read. Just look through this Seminar Tour folder. I think you'll find the answer to your question.
:jumper: Yes I think you should go!! I have been to several seminars and most recently a small group seminar in Long Island. It is a thrill every time! I always enjoy getting to the seminars early and visiting with all the great people waiting in line. John is such a great speaker and it is never a dull moment! Even if I was told without a doubt that I would never again be read at a seminar, I would still go to all of them I possibly could get to. Everyone in attendance really does walk away with "a piece of the cake"! I know you won't regret it!

First off--welcome, annelamb :wave: I guarantee you will LOVE it here. I don't think anyone who has attended a seminar will tell you not to go. It is wonderful to watch John live. I, personally, don't think it compares to watching it on TV. Even if you had a back row seat in a seminar of 3000, it beats your living room seat in front of the TV at home. The energy in the room BEFORE he comes out is unbelievable. When John walks out & begins--AWESOME! I agree with TXJUDE's suggestion--read thru some of the members posts who've attended. There will be no doubt in your mind. ENJOY :thumbsup:

smiles are your tickets general admission or are they actual seats with numbers/letters? if its general admission then plan on getting there a few hours early if you want a seat that is close to the front. otherwise if you already know the location of your seat take your time because no one else will have your seat!! have fun and be sure to tell us all about it when your back!!!!!!

I am also going to the New Orleans Seminar. :wave:
This Seminar is assigned seating so you don't really have to be there early. But one of the best parts, to me, is spending some time in line, chatting with the people around you. You can feel the energy even there.
Annelamb, we're up close, too, so maybe we'll see you there. :)

I can't add much more to what's already been said!
I don't feel as I need a reading - but you'll find me at one of his events if he ever does come over here!! :eek:
I went to his workshop last year, and like everyone says - you just feel the already amazing energy around you lift that bit extra when John walks in.
You'll enjoy every second, I'm sure!

I agree with everyone here. Don't question it. Go and enjoy yourself. Don't expect a reading. If it happens it will be like frosting on top of frosting. Delightful, wonderful and absolutely not necessary for you to enjoy the seminar.
One of the great things about assigned seating is you do know where you are and don't have to worry. But even if your seats were in the second balcony, it would be worth it.
On the other hand, as has been noted above, when you have assigned seats, you miss the chance to get there early and meet and talk with other people, which is great fun. People who go to see John Edward are not exactly withdrawn sourpusses, to say the least. What a great bunch of people. In one of the seminars, I got to walk up the line from the front back selling someone's extra tickets who was too shy to do it herself effectively. I had a ball interacting with people and joking around with them and sold them quickly where she had been totally unable to sell them.
