THE SOCIETY for Psychical Research was set up in London in 1882, the first scientific organisation ever to examine claims of psychic and paranormal phenomena. We hold no corporate view about their existence or meaning; rather, our purpose is to gather information and foster understanding through research and education.
Who are we?
The Ghost Club is the oldest organisation in the world associated with psychical research. It was founded in 1862 but has its roots in Cambridge University where, in 1855, fellows at Trinity College began to discuss ghosts and psychic phenomena.
Past members include Charles Dickens, Siegfried Sassoon, Harry Price, Donald Campbell, Peter Cushing, Peter Underwood, Maurice Grosse, Sir Shane Leslie and Eric Maple.
Today the Ghost Club is a non-profit, social club run by an elected Council of volunteers and its purpose remains true to its roots; the Ghost Club offers open-minded, curious individuals the opportunity to debate, explore and investigate unexplained phenomena with like-minded people and record the results for posterity.
The Paranormal Study Approach.
We envision allowing paranormal enthusiasts from the world over to have access to information that will help them grow in their studies. We know that that only way to grow this field responsibly is to have an educated public. Until now, education have been relegated to a few avenues: articles & books, websites, conferences and television. To learn directly from someone well-respected in their chosen aspect of the field, you would have to find a way to go to a conference where they were speaking.
Not everyone can make it to a conference, especially if you live on the other side of the world. Articles and books are great resources if you can trust the author; there is a lot of crazy that has been published over the years. Television is misleading at best and websites are like books and articles, you can never know the veracity of the claims being stated.
We recognised that change needed to happen for the betterment of the field.
New Thinking Allowed with Jeffrey Mishlove.
This channel exclusively features interviews and monologues (as well as occasional archival videos). Guests include leading figures in philosophy, psychology, health, science, and spirituality -- with a healthy and respectful emphasis on parapsychology.
New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in "parapsychology" ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is also past-president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people are encouraged to cultivate and apply their inner, intuitive abilities.
Founded by Theresa M. Kelly, MsD., the Center for Exceptional Human Experiences offers information through articles, assessments, manuals, books, and courses to classify exceptional experiences (i.e. extrasensory and psychokinetic experiences), identify cause and prevention factors, assess, compare, and differentiate genuine exceptional experiences from concerning abnormal behavior, and options to alleviate distressing exceptional experiences. CEHE offers general information for the public, and specialty information for psychologists, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, social workers, and family doctors.
Complementary therapies offer a different approach to conventional or mainstream medicine. They include therapies that aren't usually part of conventional medical care, such as yoga, meditation, acupuncture and homeopathy.
Use Google earth to map a location for Geopathic and Ley Lines. Instuctions as follows:
1. Download and install Google Earth.
(Note: You need a computer with at least 4GB of RAM (memory) It can work with less RAM but is liable to freeze.)
2. Once Google Earth is installed download the KML file from the link attached and place on your PC desktop. You can then either click on the KML file to open up Ley Lines etc, or with Google Earth open, navigate FILE - OPEN - DESKTOP - Geo & Ley Lines file.
3. Use a simple postcode in search.

Seismic activity is defined as the types, frequency and size of earthquakes that happen over a period of time in a certain area. Consideration should be given to areas which have mining industry, either past or present.
Electromagnetic Sensitivity, also known as Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) or electrosensitivity, is a condition in which an individual experiences symptoms like headaches, dizziness, unusual heart palpitations, or insomnia, around wireless technologies or electrical devices such as smart meters, cell towers, Wi-Fi, mobile phones, cordless phones, power line magnetic fields, intermediate frequencies, and electric fields from various electronics devices.
‘Psi’ (the Greek letter ψ) is the modern collective term for the psychic functions of telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition and psychokinesis. Psi phenomena were studied by Fellows of the Royal Society, among others, in the late seventeenth century, and were noted in the late eighteenth century in relation to hypnosis. In the second half of the nineteenth century, scientists such as Robert Hare, William Crookes and Johann Zöllner began to uncover more evidence in their experiments with séance mediums. Systematic study began in 1882 with the founding in London of the Society for Psychical Research, which, besides investigating the claims of spirit mediums, carried out surveys of ‘spontaneous’ phenomena – experiences of telepathic connections, ghosts, apparitions and poltergeists, precognitive dreams and the like – and conducted the first formal experiments.
From the 1930s the focus switched to experimentation based on statistics, pioneered by Joseph Banks Rhine at Duke University in the US. The Society for Psychical Research, Parapsychological Association and other privately-funded organisations continue to investigate psychic claims and carry out experiments, publishing the results in their peer-reviewed journals.
A serious ongoing project to quantitatively document as many locations with paranormal / cryptozoological interest as possible, region by region, in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and the Channel Islands. One hundred and three areas are currently covered, now totaling over 12,400 entries, with frequent additions and current stories continuously updated. This is not a 'paranormal tourism' site - many of these places are private, and as such, the owner's privacy should be considered paramount.
Spirit Release Therapy (SRT) is a clinical treatment sometimes used with patients who appear to be ‘possessed’ by a harmful spirit entity, and who have not responded to conventional psychotherapy or psychiatric methods. Its claims have yet to be substantiated by rigorous empirical studies. However, as a diagnostic system SRT has been found by some medical practitioners, psychiatrists and clinical psychologists to be more efficient than traditional medical diagnostics at identifying the aetiology of a wide range of mental, emotional and psychosomatic illnesses.
The Churches Fellowship for Psychical and Spiritual Studies exists to promote the study and integration of psychical and spiritual experience within a Christian context.
Many people have come to value the guidance of the Fellowship when they have experienced spontaneous gifts of the Spirit, the pain of bereavement or simply a call to deeper spiritual understanding. The Fellowship offers a safe meeting place where members and enquirers may share and explore these experiences in an open atmosphere of love and acceptance.
