AIPR Certificate in Experiential Parapsychology
This course is run
for groups of students who would like to experience psychic phenomena
directly. The emphasis is on experiential fun, hands on doing psychic
things. There are no exams or written assignments. Each activity will be
repeated each week until all members of the group are quite satisfied as
to the reality of psychic phenomena before moving on to the next
experiment. A certificate in experiential parapsychology will be awarded
to everyone who completes the course. A recommended reading list is
supplied. AIPR, Inc., accepts no responsibility for learning or

transformative "Near Death Experience" usually produces psychic phenomena
as an after effect. As do the rare close encounters with U.F.O. beings or
with psycho active substances. In these experiences people discover
something new and fascinating about the mystery of the origin of their own
being and this stimulates curiosity.
It becomes clear
that there is much more to human potential than consensus reality will
permit and that our own consciousness is much more flexible than we ever

developing psycho-spiritual skills include increased sensitivity to all
people, animals, ecological concerns and becoming a prototypical future

On this path of self
discovery, students may find that self responsibility, kindness, altruism
and spirituality increase with accelerated evolution of consciousness
toward a cosmic view of our place in the universe and our connectedness to
all. Find answers to the Big questions: What is the nature of the
universe? What is spirit? Why are we here? What happens when we die?
To move towards
answers to these questions there is no other place to begin but to gain a
phenomenological grounding in our explorations of our own experience.

auditory or visual message.
A psychomanteum or
apparition chamber is a quiet room hung with curtains, dimly lit and
equipped with comfortable seating and a large mirror into which the
viewers gaze, unable to see their own reflection.
After a few minutes to a
half-hour in the psychomanteum, many people report that the mirror seems
to transform into a window, swirling clouds appear in this window, and
then intensely vivid visions are seen through the window. On occasion,
visions from the "other side" of the window appear to extend into the
psychomanteum itself. These latter, three-dimensional visions, sometimes
taking the form of humanoid apparitions, are often described as
"hyper-real", that is, as more intensely real than the reality experienced
under ordinary consciousness. An especially interesting aspect of visions
induced by mirror gazing is the autonomy of the image. That is, these
visions appear to be so utterly separate from the viewer.
Some people report that
these apparitions are accompanied by electrostatic sensations (prickling
skin, hair standing up), changes in ambient temperature (typically to
extreme cold), or illumination anomalies (sparkling lights, whole room
diffused with bright light). The experience of seeing an apparition can
also be accompanied by feelings of profound meaning, sometimes leading to
significant transformations of personality. These dramatic effects are
reminiscent of phenomena associated with peak experiences and mystical
Of those who reported
full-blown, vivid, stable apparitions, many were deeply affected and were
utterly convinced that the apparitions were genuine, independent spirits.
These experiences are often beneficial in helping to resolve cases of
chronic grief, and of course, from the therapeutic perspective it does not
matter whether the apparitions are real or imaginary. (Based on statements
by Dr Dean Radin).
