This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.
A term coined by psychologist Max Dessoir and popularized as a replacement for the earlier term "psychical research".
"Parapsychology is a discipline that seeks to investigate the existence and causes and conditions of psychic abilities, near-death experiences, out-of-the-body experiences, crisis apparitions, retro-cognitions, reincarnation memories, regression memories, prophecy, ghosts and life after death." - Excerpt from Wikipedia.
As the sole successor to a line of practicing 'psychics', you can bet I'm interested in such literature. My very first book on the subject was "The Finding of the Third Eye" by Vera Stanley Alder. I was given this book at the clueless age of 7. I heard more about the subject by mouth than text at that time but somehow kept the book on my shelf.
Paranormal experiences, self awareness, spiritual development and defining the soul are all major parts of the group focus.
If you're into this sort of thing, you are very welcome to join! I'd love to meet up with more people who have experienced the more controversial parts of life and lived to question it.
