The Sirhan Sirhan Museum of Pasadena’s Center of Investigatory Psychic Activity continues to investigate the mysterious murder of Senator Robert Francis Kennedy using the original means implemented in the initial criminal examination: hypnosis. Alleged assassin Sirhan Sirhan experimented with self-hypnosis and during the trial was again induced into a hypnotized state. His unique ability to receive and act upon orders while in this state gave birth to theories that he was in a hypnotized state when he was apprehended at the scene of the crime firing a gun at Senator Kennedy.
In honor of the 40th anniversary of Senator Robert Francis Kennedy’s assassination, the Sirhan Sirhan Museum of Pasadena’s Center of Investigatory Psychic Activity presents the work of the most recent artist-in residence, Malisa Humphrey.
The Sirhan Sirhan Museum of Pasadena’s Center of Psychic Investigation Artist-in-Residence Program asks psychic artists to lend their skills in solving this American tragedy. Invited artists are hypnotized and guided to access Mr. Sirhan's hypnotized state. Once hypnotized participating artists visit various sites in Pasadena and Los Angeles retracing Sirhan Sirhan's steps on Senator Kennedy's last day. Malisa Humphrey’s drawings were produced while under hypnosis, after visiting these psychically potent sites.
The Sirhan Sirhan Museum’s CIPA encourages gallery visitors to participate in investigatory hypnosis. Please take an audio hypnosis driving tour CD. The CD will first guide the listener into a hypnotized state, followed by audio prompts instructing listeners to the several sites Mr. Sirhan visited on that fateful June day throughout the greater Los Angeles area. We encourage viewers to share any visions or insights gained during their altered state in hopes of bringing resolution to this crime ever closer.
