Delores Cannon

EUREKA SPRINGS — Dolores Cannon of Hunstville, who took over managing the annual Eureka Springs UFO Conference, passed away Oct. 18 after a short illness following an accident in late September. She was 83.

Cannon was born in 1931 in St. Louis, Mo.

She married Johnny, a career Navy man, in 1951.

Cannon was most known for her work as a hypnotherapist who began practicing in the 1960s, and a past-life regressionist since 1979. Stating that she had established contact with Michel de Notredame, known popularly as Nostradamus, in 1989 she published a three-volume set titled “Conversations with Nostradamus,” which contains 1,000 prophecies and their interpretation.

She was also a UFO investigator in the last 20 years of her life, and she began teaching her specific hypnosis skills from a technique called Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy to help clients experience instantaneous healing of diseases. It was this work which also led to her past life regression work.

Cannon eventually began speaking and teaching all over the world, appearing at conferences and on radio shows such as “Coast to Coast.”

Cannon was the author of 18 books on various metaphysical subjects, published by her own label, Ozark Mountain Publishing, which has also published the work of more than 50 other authors.

She took over the Eureka Springs UFO Conference in 2013, after a gap following the death of longtime conference organizer Lucius Farish, and established the Lucius Farish Trust award of $1,000. During this year’s conference, in its 27th year, Cannon added two film debuts and said she hoped to offer more in the future.

Some local residents remember Cannon participating in weekly metaphysical groups in Eureka Springs in the 1980s, and several shared memories of her on her Facebook page.

Pam Quick remembers Cannon coming to the meetings, which resulted in a several-year friendship.

“When Dolores was working on a project, there was no stopping her!” Quick wrote. “She told us back then that she would be speaking worldwide, that she would be on many television shows, and that many books would follow. All of those things, and much more, came to be.”

“Dolores was a true inspiration, always very positive about the future,” wrote Barbara Kellogg. “I feel very lucky to have known her back in those early days. Many lifelong friendships were made at those weekly meetings…. Dolores Cannon was a one of a kind true force of nature, and all I can say to whoever and whatever is out there on the other side, watch out!”
