Kim Penberthy PhD presents: Contemplative Practices and Extraordinary Experiences.
Extraordinary experiences and abilities may be brought about by intentionally changing consciousness via various contemplative methods such as meditating. Some research indicates that various forms of meditation are associated with increased mindfulness and paranormal experiences of precognition, telepathy, clairvoyance, and synchronicities. Data exploring these descriptive studies of reported experiences will be presented, along with our early investigations on the impact of a meditation course in various populations. We will focus on self-reported extraordinary experiences and psi in a variety of contexts and studies and present data that found large percentages of people in the general public report such experiences. We will also review our most recent research comparing a self-selected group of meditators versus non-meditators and our findings regarding the frequency and impact of self-reported mindfulness, paranormal experiences, and performance on psi tasks over time and the meaning associated with these experiences. Recommendations for future research will also be provided.
