Our mission is to discern, develop and disseminate knowledge of how paranormal phenomena may relate to and enhance the development of the human spirit.
The Academy for Spiritual and Consciousness Studies, Inc. aims to offer an arena where
those with an interest in the study of consciousness and the fringe sciences can gain
access to articles, links and other research to educate and interchange ideas in the
zone where spirituality and scientific research interface.
Our main event of the year is our annual conference. We
feature a wide range of exceptional speakers presenting subject matter that
appeals to both scholars and the general public.
To provide a venue for those who wish to publish, the Academy prints two scholarly
quarterlies, The Journal for Spiritual and Consciousness Studies and The Searchlight,
available to those with paid memberships to ASCS. To see other membership benefits,
As you navigate through this site, you will also find numerous articles by distinguished
