Loyd Auerbach

Loyd Auerbach, M.S., Director of the Office of Paranormal Investigations, has been investigating cases of apparitions, hauntings and poltergeists for over 30 years. His latest book, co-authored with psychic Annette Martin, is The Ghost Detectives’ Guide to Haunted San Francisco. He is the author of 7 other books including: A Paranormal Casebook: : Ghost Hunting in the New Millennium (Atriad Press, 2005), Hauntings & Poltergeists: A Ghost Hunter’s Guide (Ronin Publishing, 2004) and Ghost Hunting: How to Investigate the Paranormal (Ronin, 2004). He has a graduate degree in Parapsychology and a BA in Cultural Anthropology, and was recently appointed to the faculty of Atlantic University, and teaches at HCH Institute and JFK University in northern California. He’s currently on the Boards of three major organizations including the Rhine Research Center, and has appeared on well over 100 national (many constantly in reruns) and local TV shows and thousands of other media appearances. He is a professional mentalist and psychic entertainer, performing as Professor Paranormal – this part of his background has made him indispensible to numerous researchers over the years, concerned about possible fraud and also about proper controls in the lab and for field investigations.

As of late 2009, he added the skill of “professional chocolatier” to his repertoire, and began selling his first chocolate products in late 2010 at

Graham Nicholls 

GrahamNichollsGraham Nicholls is an author and the director of the Out of Body and Near Death Experience Society (UK). He had his first out-of-body experience (OBE) in 1987. Since that time he has combined cutting edge technology and scientific research to further develop his abilities and understanding of the phenomenon.

Graham first came to public attention as an installation artist exploring psychology and consciousness through specially designed technological environments, the largest of which was exhibited at London’s Science Museum in 2004. These installations also led to immersive technology designed to induce OBEs and later his Infra-liminal sound recordings, which help bring about the vibrational state (a key stage of the OBEs for many people).

In 2011 his first book entitled Avenues of the Human Spirit was published. The book is moving account of his personal journey and exploration of the nature of consciousness. His second book, Navigating the Out-of-Body Experience, offers a totally new way to learn and approach the subject of OBEs and the extended mind. He is also a co-author of Consciousness Beyond the Body, a scientifically focused exploration of the theories and evidence for OBEs, published in 2016.

Graham Nicholls has lectured widely at events including the Gateways of the Mind (UK), and the International Remote Viewing Association Conference (US), as well as at venues including: Cambridge University (UK), The Institute of Noetic Sciences (US), The Society for Psychical Research (UK), Centre for the Study of Anomalous Psychological Processes (UK), and the Science Museum (UK).

He has organized, conducted and taken part in experiments into telepathy and other psi abilities with author and biologist Dr Rupert Sheldrake. He has also taken part in Dr Dean Radin’s research aimed at psychically influencing the famous quantum double-slit experiment. He is also currently researching the veridical visual aspects of OBEs with various scientists.

Graham Nicholls has gained much attention for his rational approach to his abilities and his areas of expertise as a whole and has appeared in most of the major press as a result. He has been interviewed by The Times, The Independent, The Telegraph, The Daily Express, The Epoch Times, and the BBC, as well as many overseas and independent media. He is also featured in several books by other authors.

Dr. Paul H. Smith


Paul H. Smith, Ph.D. is president of the for-profit Remote Viewing Instructional Services, Inc., and the non-profit International Remote Viewing Association. He became a psychic spy in 1983, when he was recruited into the military remote viewing psychic espionage program which later became famous as the Star Gate Program. Among the longest-serving remote viewers in the military program, he studied under the legendary Hal Puthoff and Ingo Swann, served as a first-line operational remote viewer doing thousands of training and operational RV sessions, wrote the official manual on controlled remote viewing, and taught CRV to new military remote viewer candidates.

Among his students are included well-known remote viewers such as Lyn Buchanan, Mel Riley, and David Morehouse. Paul has briefed and demonstrated remote viewing to senators, admirals and generals, and other senior military and government officials. A Desert Storm veteran, Paul retired from the Army as a major in 1996 from his final assignment, Chief of Intelligence and Security for the Military District of Washington.

Paul is author of Reading the Enemys Mind: Inside Star Gate ­Americas Psychic Espionage Program (a Book Bonus and Editors Choice Selection for Readers Digest), and The Essential Guide to Remote Viewing: The Secret Military Remote Perception Skill Anyone Can Learn. He is also co-producer of the acclaimed DVD-based LearnDowsing training course, and the newly-released Remote Perception: Basic Operational Training home-study course.

He has a BA from Brigham Young University, an MS from the National Defense University (both in Middle Eastern Studies), and a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Texas at Austin, writing on consciousness, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of science. He has spoken on the subject of remote viewing, parapsychology, and consciousness at various national and international conferences, and appeared on numerous regional, national, and international broadcast media programs.

Mark Boccuzzi

Mark Boccuzzi 2020Mark Boccuzzi is a research scientist, lecturer, and innovator working at the intersection of science, technology, education, and interactive visual arts. For more than a decade, he has applied these disciplines to the study of the survival of consciousness and psi (telepathy, precognition, clairvoyance, and mind-matter interactions).

Mark is the author of the book Visualizing Intention: Art informed by science.

Based in Tucson, AZ, USA, Mark is lead developer at The Windbridge Institute, LLC. which he co-founded in 2008 with his wife and research partner, Julie Beischel, PhD. He is also the executive director of the Windbridge Research Center (, a non-profit organization funded in 2017, which is dedicated to the study of dying, death, and what comes next. Mark is currently the managing editor of the open access, free, peer-reviewed journal Threshold: Journal of Interdisciplinary Consciousness Studies (TJICS).

In 2005, he successfully completed the Summer Study Program in Parapsychology presented by the Rhine Research Center. He is a full member of both the Parapsychological Association and the Society for Scientific Exploration.

He has published peer-reviewed journal articles on topics including instrumental transcommunication (ITC) and mental and physical mediumship and presented his research nationally on field investigations of allegedly haunted locations, photographic anomalies, ITC, non-human animal psi, psychokinesis, intentional datasets, and applied precognition at conferences and scientific meetings. Much of his current work applies virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), deep machine learning, and artificial intelligence (AI) to ITC and applied psi research.

In October 2019 Mark launched the Parapsychology and Psi Hacking Project, a local and online community effort to connect makers, artists, tech hackers, citizen scientists, seekers, entrepreneurs, and the general public to the ever-expanding body of parapsychological research in an effort to encourage the development of new tools, technologies, and experiences.
