BREAKING NEWS: The PRF is conducting a research study on after-death communication, and is currently looking for a few volunteers from the general public who may be interested in taking part. Those who do will receive a 20 - 30 min. reading from a professional medium. Please take a look at our Call for Sitters page for more details!
Established in 1961, the Psychical Research Foundation (PRF) is dedicated to research and education in the field of parapsychology, with particular emphasis on exploring the question of whether human personality or consciousness may survive after death. PRF research and educational activities include empirical studies, field investigations, lectures, and publications on survival-related phenomena such as apparitional (ghost) experiences, hauntings, and mediumship. Exploration is also made of reported psychic phenomena such as extrasensory perception (ESP) and psychokinesis (PK, or "mind over matter"), as well as expanded states of consciousness such as out-of-body experiences and deep meditative states.
