  • ProfParanormalsmScientific Approach to ESP (8 weeks)
    with Loyd Auerbach, M.S.
    Monday, September 9th - October 28th
    8:30pm - 10:00pm Eastern Time

    This unique eight week course will be broadcast live on Monday evenings, but many students choose to watch the recordings of the classes if they cannot attend them live. This course can be taken as a continuing education course or applied to some Certificate Programs.

    This 8 week academic course will define the phenomena and experiences related to Extrasensory Perception (ESP) and provide an in-depth study of the current and historical evidence and research of Telepathy, Clairvoyance, and Precognition. The differences and similarities between these categories of psi experience/abilities will be discussed as well as an overview of what has been learned about psychological and physical variables and theories and models of ESP. Some of the basic topics related to Remote Viewing and applications of ESP will also be introduced in this class..

    Students who choose to be graded in this course will receive letter grades based on their participation in the weekly discussion forums, and their scores on two multiple choice/short answer essay tests given in weeks 4 and week 8.

  • Exploring Exceptional Experiences (4 Weeks)
    with Chantal Toporow, PhD
    Tuesdays, September 10th - October 1st
    8:00pm - 9:30pm Eastern Time

    What types of experiences do people report? Who reports them? What are some of the theories behind some of these experiences? How are these experiences evaluated and investigated?

    This 4 week continuing education course will provide an overview of the full range and depths of exceptional experiences, also known as anomalous events, including experiences of hallucinations, lucid and precognitive dreams, near-death and out-of body events, UFO sightings, alien abductions, psychokinesis, remote viewing, mysticism, anomalous healing, psi-events and past-lives.

    Exploring Exceptional Experiences will evaluate whether there are underlying similarities among all the phenomena and the issues with moving forward with a new scientific paradigm.

    This is a continuing education course, but students will be introduced to scientific articles and references that will help them to make their own decisions about the world around them and its possibilities. Prepare to open your mind to a changing view of science while continuing to challenge your innermost thoughts and most firmly held beliefs.


  • Developing Your Intuition (4 Weeks)
    with Loyd Auerbach, M.S.
    Wednesdays, October 2nd - October 23rd
    8:30pm - 10:00pm Eastern Time

    The research findings from the field of Parapsychology have demonstrated that psi abilities-- ESP and PK (psychokinesis / mind over matter) – are functions of normal human beings, much like creativity. Some people are more creative than others in different disciplines, but everyone seems to have some creativity in them, provided they can find it and have some belief it can be developed and utilized.

    Developing one's psychic/intuitive abilities is much the same. Some people have a natural aptitude for certain psychic talents that spontaneously manifest themselves, others need to find which applications of psi they have aptitude for and work on bringing them out.

    This course will cover the major findings of Parapsychology relating to what makes a person more (or less) intuitive/psychic and will include exercises that will help you both test and develop the abilities you may have aptitude for, including a remote viewing experiment and a "Telepathy" game you can play with your family and friends.

    In addition, we will discuss the importance of specific characteristics and beliefs, the range of beliefs about ESP around the world, how personal belief -- whether arrived at because of culture, religion, education or family upbringing -- can effectively support or block psychic experiences, and how to assess psychic readings.
