Shared Deviance:
The Interrelations of Psi & UAP


Chair: Michael Nahm
February 25, 2023

Speakers include: Michael Nahm, Colm Kelleher, Jeffrey Kripal, Eric Ouellet, & Andreas Anton


This symposium addresses the interrelations between unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAP) and psi phenomena. Although psi phenomena are rarely discussed in the recent debates about documentations of UAP by particularly military bodies, there exists a huge phenomenological overlap between the two fields. This includes the occurrence of inexplicable lights, movements, levitations, sudden appearance and disappearance of objects, apparitional experiences, and malfunction of electronic devices. We will consider the possible implications of these findings and will furthermore argue that the growing interest and acceptance of UAP in mainstream media outlets should lead to a concomitant interest and acceptance of psi phenomena.

Counselling and the Exceptional Experiencer

Chair: Erika Pratte
May 20, 2023

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

This symposium focuses on the exceptional experiencer (ExEr) in counseling and psychotherapy. Practitioners will speak on their professional experiences and/or research regarding the topic. Furthermore, ExErs will speak on their personal stories of their time in counseling or in other types of mental health support. Thus, attendees will hear from both professionals and those with lived experiences to be a part of a well-rounded dialogue on a topic that extends beyond parapsychology and into other domains such as mental health, well-being, and access to appropriate care.
