Mission

The Psychical Research Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to research and education in the field of parapsychology (the scientific study of ostensible psychic phenomena, which include extrasensory perception or ESP, and psychokinesis or "mind over matter"), with particular emphasis on research and investigation of phenomena which seem to have a bearing on the question of life after death. Such phenomena include apparitions, hauntings, mediumship, and out-of-body experiences. PRF research and educational activities include empirical studies, public lectures, and scholarly publications related to these topics.
