Parapsychology Preconference Workshop

The Parapsychological Association will be holding its 61st annual convention on August 2-5, 2018 at the Institute of Noetic Sciences in Petaluma, California. Leading scientists and other academics from around the world will gather to present the latest parapsychological research into psi and related phenomena, such as extra-sensory perception, psychokinesis, psychic healing, altered states of consciousness, mediumship and possible survival of bodily death. Organized by Dean Radin and Everton Maraldi, the event will be open to the public and academics alike.

This year’s J.B. Rhine Banquet Address will be delivered by Jacques F. Vallee, prominent researcher in the field of unexplained aerial phenomena. Vallee holds a master’s degree in Astrophysics and a PhD in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. Vallee’s address is entitled The Software of Consciousness: Intriguing Lessons and Lingering Puzzles on the far side of StarGate. Life-long venture capitalist Vallee will explore the role of information systems in inspiring radical new designs for the exploration of remote viewing and of the expanded role of the mind in creating and describing reality. 

Prior to the PA convention the IONS Research Department will host a two-day intensive workshop on the state-of-the-art in psi research.The preconference workshop will be led by IONS scientists and other leaders in the field. Morning sessions will consist of dynamic lectures, discussion, and Q&A. In the afternoons, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in laboratory psi experiments. Evening sessions may include further discussion, Q&A, and viewing of relevant documentary films.

PA conventions offer an opportunity for audiences interested in that wide range of human functioning popularly known as the ‘psychic’ or ‘paranormal’ to hear the latest and most advanced scientific thinking about topics in parapsychology.
