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.
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.
