States of Mind: ESP and Altered States of Consciousness

Parker, Adrian

 This is the first general survey of altered states of consciousness and ESP to be published in book form, and it is by a clinical psychologist who has engaged in parapsychological research. The range of topics covered is reflected in the chapter headings: "ESP and Consciousness"; "Hypnosis and ESP"; "Trance Mediumship"; "Dream States and ESP"; "Out-of-the-Body Experiences and Lucid Dreams"; "Pathological States"; "Psychedelic States"; "Meditation, Mysticism, and Alpha States"; and "Is there a Post-Mortem ASC?" The emphasis throughout is on empirical research. Parker shows how various interpersonal factors are related to both ESP and ASCs and offers suggestions for further research.
