Convention Spotlight: Charley Tart to Give Invited Talk

The line-up for the 61st PA Annual Convention at IONS, CA, just keeps getting better! Invited speaker Charley Tart, PhD., will present his lecture entitled: “Parapsychology as an Essential Component of an Expanded Science of Mind: Promises and Challenges.” Dr. Tart is internationally known for his psychological work on the nature of consciousness, particularly altered states. He was one of the founders of the field of transpersonal psychology, and is a legend in parapsychology. Of note, two of his many books, Altered States of Consciousness (1969) and Transpersonal Psychologies (1975), were paramount in ushering these ideas into modern psychology. An incredible resume includes highlights such as: Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of California, Davis, Professor Emeritus of the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, Palo Alto, California. He was the first holder of the Bigelow Chair of Consciousness Studies at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas and has served as an Instructor in Psychiatry at the School of Medicine of the University of Virginia, and a consultant on government-funded parapsychological research at SRI International. He also holds a black belt in Aikido! We’re absolutely delighted Charley will address the PA convention in August 2018 and bestow decades of his parapsychological experience and wisdom.
