Learn Parapsychology at a Distance (Without Telepathy)

Parapsychologist/author/paranormal investigator Loyd Auerbach has teamed up with HCH Institute in Lafayette, California, to present a Certificate Course in Parapsychological Studies. The program has been offered to local attendees since early 2005, and is now available for distance learning as well.

This 60 hour course series is an overview to the field of Parapsychology, and the main areas of research and investigation: ESP, PsychoKinesis (mind over matter), and Survival of Bodily Death. Included will be a general discussion of where the field came from, where the major centers of research are today, and where the field might be headed. 

Course titles are: Introduction to Parapsychology, PK & Precognition: Mind, Matter & Time, Being Psychic, The Search for Life After Death, Theories and Models of Psychic Experience, Parapsychology: The Cross-Over Science and Ghost Hunting: How to Investigate the Paranormal

Distance learning Option:
The full Certificate program or individual classes may be taken via the distance learning option. All courses have been audio-recorded, live. This includes lectures, discussion, and questions/answers between students and the instructor. Registered students receive all course CDs (mp3 format of class recordings), handouts, required books, and additional materials. Individual courses are available without entering the program.

In addition, distance learning students will be scheduled for telephone sessions with the instructor to supplement each course. In this way, students will still be able to interact and ask questions of the instructor without having to be in the classroom. 

Distance learning students are also invited to participate by conference call (via an in-classroom speakerphone) in the class sessions as they are held live at HCH. This is not a requirement for certification however. 

Distance learning students completing the entire program will be entitled to the same certificate received by students attending in-person. 

This is a basic certificate program -- in the foundations of Parapsychology. If this is successful, the organizers plan to expand the program to a more extensive group of classes (and higher level of state certification). This program is registered with the California Bureau of Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education. 

For more information: The program and course descriptions, schedule of classes, and costs for both local students and distance learners can be found at:
