Psi Saturday: Current research into the Paranormal, Psychic and Spiritual
1st July 2023| 10.00am until 5.00pm | £55 | In Centre
This day of discussion is an opportunity to meet a number of researchers who are working in the area of spirit and the anomalous; we will hear their latest ideas and there will be a chance for you to discuss them openly. We have invited three academics from the University of Northampton – where the UK’s largest parapsychology department is located – and two independent researchers.
Please note that places for this special event are extremely limited. Book early to avoid disappointment.
Leading the Northampton team is an old friend of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Centre Professor Chris Roe whom you may have seen on the Netflix series Surviving Death. With him will be colleagues whose work is also at the cutting edge.
Kirsty Allan is a post-graduate researcher, undertaking a PhD in Consciousness Research / Parapsychology with a specialism in psi phenomena. She is also committed to personal transpersonal exploration – and is a personal development guide to others of high sesitivity. She has a background in psychological therapy, has authored an approach to transforming anxiety into creative will and developed a membership programme to support the development of highly sensitive people.
Mike Daw is a doctoral researcher at the University of Northampton. Beyond parapsychology, he is active in the environmental movement with particular interests in veganism and rewilding. He lives in Ilkley, West Yorkshire. https://michaeldaw.net
Mateus Donia Martinez is a PhD researcher and member of the InterPsi: Laboratory of Psychosocial Studies: belief, subjectivity, culture and health, at the University of Sao Paulo- Brazil. His current research explores anomalous experiences in childhood, with a special interest in mediumship. He is also interested in the psychology of religion and Jungian psychology.
Chris Roe holds a Chair in Psychology at the University of Northampton, UK. He is the International Affiliate for England of the Parapsychology Foundation and a Vice-President of the Society for Psychical Research. His research interests are around understanding the nature of anomalous experiences and includes research on the phenomenology of paranormal experience, particularly as it affects wellbeing, the psychology of paranormal belief and of deception, as well as experimental approaches to test claims for extrasensory perception and psychokinesis, particularly where they involve psychological factors.
Our independent researchers are:
Piero Calvi-Parisetti whose books demonstrate with great clarity the high quality of current arguments in favour of Survival (life after death). They include 21 Days into the Afterlife (2008), Adventures in Psychical Research (2015) and Step into the Light (2021).
Valerie Harkness who has been conducting research into the results and effects of mediumship on the clients of our mediums at the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Centre. Her findings are very recent and of great interest.
