This program examines the reasons that made scientists, philosophers, and theologians disdain parapsychology. It builds upon a postmodern philosophy that allows the parapsychological evidence to be taken as a serious discipline. Also, it identifies several types of repeatable phenomena that support the existence of extrasensory perception. Using a non-dualistic analysis of the mind and the brain, this program investigates different types of psychic evidence: messages from mediums; apparitions; cases of possession and reincarnation; and out-of-body experiences.

Perception & Knowledge
This course examines the complex process by which information is gathered by our sensory organs and converted to a subjective precept. The acquisition and communication of knowledge demands a coherent cognitive framework to reason about the events and states that influence us. The course deals with plausible frameworks and how these choices influence our deductive and creative processes.
Academic Supervisor : Elena Lorente Rodríguez

Mind, Body & Spirit
This course highlights the importance of the interconnection between mind, body, and spirit. It discusses different practices of stress management, meditation, guided imagery, physical exercise, art expression, and biofeedback related to emotional states, wellness, and disease.
Academic Supervisor : Richard Kaplan

Esoteric Traditions
This course investigates esoteric traditions and the philosophical concerns they raise. It examines the relationship between philosophers and the myths and spiritual believes of their times, as well as the mutual influence they had in the evolution of esoteric knowledge, philosophic thoughts, and beliefs.
Academic Supervisor : Richard Kaplan

Human Consciousness
This course examines the human consciousness. The brain appears to be a complicated organ that register and channel consciousness rather than produce it. Consciousness, the subjective experience of an inner self; could be a phenomenon forever beyond the reach of neuroscience. Even a detailed knowledge of the brain's workings and the neural correlation of consciousness may fail to explain how or why human beings have self-aware minds.
Academic Supervisor : Elena Lorente Rodríguez

Extrasensory Perception
This course surveys case studies, laboratory research, and applications of psychic phenomena and Extra Sensorial Perception (ESP). It explores the use and test of psychic phenomena, including dream work, ESP, and developing intuition. It also explores extra sensorial powers like telepathy, precognition, psychokinesis (PK), bi-location, psychic healing, and other supernatural abilities that cannot be attributed to the mere functioning of the physical brain.
Academic Supervisor : Vladimir Viktorovich Tonkov

Extrasensory Experiences
This course argues that despite the absence of scientific proves of extrasensory experiences, there are strong convergent arguments in their favor. Human consciousness can exist independent of brain-activity. Widely reported supernatural abilities and extrasensory experiences cannot be attributed to the mere functioning of the physical brain.
Academic Supervisor : Vladimir Viktorovich Tonkov

Extrasensory Deceits
This course examines why scientists, philosophers, and theologians have held parapsychology in disdain. It also investigates the tricks and deceits used to simulate several parapsychological phenomena and the means used for the rigorous study and assessment of parapsychological experiments.
Academic Supervisor : Vladimir Viktorovich Tonkov

Psychic Communication
This course investigates different types and characteristics of psychic communication from telepathy to dead people contact. Means of psychic communication have been reported to us from the dawn of mankind and are still present in our times. The empirical examinations of these communication phenomena have revealed facts no one could have ever known through ordinary means of communication.
Academic Supervisor : Vladimir Viktorovich Tonkov

Parapsychology
This course articulates philosophical and empirical examinations that allows the parapsychological evidence to be taken seriously. It identifies four types of repeatable phenomena that suggest the reality of extrasensory perception and psychokinesis. It also examines five types of evidence about life after death: messages from mediums; apparitions; cases of the possession type; cases of the reincarnation type; and out-of-body experiences.
Academic Supervisor : Vladimir Viktorovich Tonkov

States of Consciousness
This course focuses on waking up, sleeping, and dreaming as examples of conscious states from the perspectives of neurology, physiology, psychology, and cognitive neuroscience. It reviews the major models of consciousness philosophy and provides a detailed examination of attention.
Academic Supervisor : Francisco Chelos Lopez

Philosophy of Mind
This course examines the central problems of mind philosophy from a multi-disciplinary perspective, including the mind-body problem, the nature of mental states, intention and representation, sensation and consciousness, and related topics.
Academic Supervisor : Elena Lorente Rodríguez

Hypnosis & Suggestion
This course explores the history of hypnosis, trance induction, levels of trance, deepening techniques, post-hypnotic suggestion, rapport, pre-induction interview, and goal-setting. It describes the use of suggestion for rapid personal change, physical and emotional healing, creativity, and spiritual growth.
Academic Supervisor : Ruben Von Stopeck
