Wanted Home for Courses or Teaching Potential Researchers at the Edge of Science and Spirituality Online
Dr Nancy Zingrone, a 30-year veteran in research and education in scientific parapsychology, talks about the challenges to those who wish to expose new generations of scholars and scientists to the research on seemingly psychic phenomena, on exceptional and spiritual experiences, when teaching these topics are forbidden by universities and accrediting agencies in many countries.
