Course Description

Psychology is the study of the mind and behavior, and it has been the major companion to the field of parapsychology since the field was first defined. These sciences explore everything from the big questions (e.g. What is Consciousness?) to everyday experiences (e.g. How do we perceive the world? or What are dreams & how do we understand them?). Parapsychology crosses many field including physics, biology, anthropology, technology, and many others including psychology.

This introductory course is focused on the connections between psychology and psi. We will look into some historical perspectives on psi and how different cultural norms influenced how psi events were understood around the world. The course will include an exploration of how psychologists from the past viewed psi activity, dreams, altered states of consciousness, and how factors such as belief and anxiety can impact the expression of psi.

Alternative cognitive styles will be discussed as well as unconscious psi events and how our state of mind can sabotage the free expression of psi. Finally, we will broadly explore the nature of consciousness and some psychological theories that incorporate psi into our view of the world.

THIS IS NOT A COURSE ABOUT COUNSELLING. Though counselling is very important for those who are having psi experiences, this course is designed for those who want to apply psychological concepts in their understanding of psi events and in research environments.

Recommended prerequisites:  Introduction to Parapsychology or experience or courses that include reading and evaluating scientific parapsychology articles from peer reviewed journals.

When: Live broadcasts once a week or watch the class recordings at your convenience.

Where: This is an ONLINE COURSE, so you can participate anywhere you have an internet connection.

Tuition: $249 ($225 for Rhine Members)
