A new multimedia art exhibit focusing on alleged encounters and communications with spirits of the dead, entitled "Medium," is set to open soon at Kennesaw State University's Zuckerman Museum of Art in Kennesaw, Georgia. The exhibit will include works by Susan MacWilliam, who has previously filmed several documentaries relating to parapsychological topics, including "Some Ghosts," which profiled the PRF's first research director, the late William Roll.

Question and answer period with Eben Alexander and Karen Newell about their book Living in a Mindful Universe via Free Facebook Livestream on Monday Oct 30 2017 at 7:30 PM Eastern.

Journey into the Heart of Consciousness

The universe is evolving in vast and fascinating ways, and you are not only part of it—you are it. The Mindful Universe in which we live is self-aware, and learning, and evolving. As you come to know this fully through direct personal experience, you discover firsthand the pathway toward perfect harmony with all that is.

Eben will tell about his journey since his near-death experience in 2008, and how life is never only one soul's journey: it is about a massive evolution of consciousness in which everyone partakes. What he learned changed everything he knew about the brain, mind, and consciousness and drove him to ask a question confounding the entire scientific community: How do you explain the origins of consciousness if it is not a byproduct of the brain? His challenge relates to a revolutionary shift now underway within our modern scientific understanding.

Eben and Karen will both talk about the value of regular meditation practice to strengthening our connection with the inner observer – allowing us to apply profound understanding and influence in the course of our daily lives. Our hearts interconnect and exchange information with others, as we co-create this grand evolution of consciousness itself. And, we are all essential to this evolution of consciousness. We cannot simply opt out, so it is incumbent on each of us to pay attention to why we are here and what is our purpose.

They will answer questions and share additional information about free online resources and links to upcoming in-person events.

I really do not understand what is implanted in the minds of the skeptics.
Randomness and the inability to reproduce the experiment are overused to eliminate the existence of certain phenomena

10th-12th May 2019, Warwick University

Every year OUPS holds an applied psychology conference, inviting top psychologists to talk on a specific area of psychology to give delegates the opportunity to hear experts in the field present up to date research on a specific area of psychology and to provide a forum for informed discussion.

Our Annual Conference in 2019, for OU students and anyone with an interest in the subject, will be on ‘Parapsychology: exploring the science of the paranormal’. The conference will put research described as 'paranormal' under the microscope of critical scrutiny. Phenomena to be discussed include near-death experiences, poltergeists, and the veracity of readings by mediums. This will be presented to be of interest to both academics and lay persons.


We have as speakers some very well-informed believers in the existence of the paranormal, together with some equally sharp sceptics.

Our currently confirmed speakers are:
  • David Luke (The University of Greenwich; author of 'Other Worlds: Psychedelics and Exceptional Human Experience'): 'Psychedelics, psi and other exceptional human experiences'
  • Peter Naish (University of Sussex and The Open University): 'Things that go bump in the night: revisiting old haunts'
  • Tricia Robertson (University of Glasgow; author of 'Things you can do when you are Dead'): 'Psychical research ... The Cinderella Science'
  • Pim van Lommel (Cardiologist, Arnhem, The Netherlands; author of 'Consciousness beyond life'): 'Nonlocal consciousness: A concept based on scientific studies on the Near-Death Experience'
  • Callum Cooper (University of Northampton; author of 'Telephone Calls from the Dead'): Parapsychology from Life to the Lab'
  • Chris Roe (University of Northampton; Director of the Centre for the Study of Anomalous Processes): 'Psi as unconscious: Recent developments in experimental parapsychology'
  • Frederick Toates (Open University): 'What is "para" about parapsychology ? Brains, Minds and Consciousness'
  • Dr Madeleine Castro (Leeds Beckett University): Title tba
