Gail Hayssen was born in New York City. Her family was active in the Vegan and alternative health movements in the 1960's.
She was known among friends and family for dreams that predict upcoming personal events.
In 1970 Gail participated in Mind Dynamics, a system for expanding psychic potential. Gail discovered her own talents for accurately predicting events and obtaining personal information.
In the 1980's, dreams and visions led Gail to a unique relationship with the Huichol Indians of the Sierra Madre Occidental Mountains in Mexico. Gail received an unusual welcome from the Huichol community, and attended ceremonies generally forbidden to outsiders.
Since then, Gail has developed unique relationships with native people and shamans from other cultures: the Haida of Alaska, and shamans of Mongolia, where she spoke at the International Shaman Symposium in 2006 and 2011.
In the late 1990's, Gail met scientists Dr. Dean Radin and Russell Targ, who were conducting experiments in ‘remote viewing’, aimed at understanding how people perceive events which are distant in space and time. As an experimental subject, Gail would draw and describe a photograph that would be randomly selected in the future and then shown to her.
In 2011 Gail was initiated as a Buriat White Shaman, and has been a subject and collaborator in numerous paranormal experiments with Dr. Radin and others, including the Ganzfield Experiment, documented in Dr. Radin’s international bestseller Supernormal.
Gail Hayssen has been a subject, participant, or co-author in numerous experiments and publications.
On going down the path of book publishing, Gail met Michelle Freed of LITM Media at a remote viewing study group, and launched her podcast to share intimate stories of the paranormal and shamanism.
Gail lives in Sebastopol, California with her husband, David and her three children, Nancy, Richard, and Tasha.
