Varieties of Anomalous Experience: Examining the Scientific Evidence (Second Edition)


For much of the twentieth century, unusual perceptions and sensations, radical alterations of consciousness, and other extraordinary subjective experiences were ignored as legitimate topics of study in mainstream psychology. Recent years, however, have witnessed a burgeoning interest in the scientific study of anomalous experiences, thanks in no small part to the impact of the first edition of this book, which was published in 2000.

In this revised and thoroughly updated edition of their classic text, the editors have invited experts to provide definitive reviews and analyses of a wide range of anomalous experiences, from commonly documented sensations and perceptions like synesthesia, lucid dreaming, out-of-body experiences, and auditory and visual hallucinations, to rarer and more seemingly inexplicable experiences such as anomalous healing, past-lives, near-death, mystical experiences, and even alien abductions.

While acknowledging the difficulty inherent in studying any subjective experience, the authors nonetheless provide, along with new research in neuroscience, comprehensive scientific coverage of each of these experiences, through its prevalence and etiology, phenomenology, aftereffects, any related psychopathology, theoretical explanations, and related clinical issues.

An integrative summary chapter is a new feature of this edition.

The book makes a compelling case for the inclusion of these marginalized and under-recognized experiences as not merely incidental, but essential to our understanding of human psychology.

Varieties of Anomalous Experience: Examining the Scientific Evidence (First Edition)


What are the long-term effects of near-death experiences? Why do some people see sounds and taste smells? What happens during an out-of-body experience? These extraordinary and unusual phenomena have often been ignored or ridiculed by mainstream psychology. In this fascinating volume, leading scholars explore these areas as well as experiences of hallucinations, lucid dreams, alien abductions, mysticism, anomalous healings, psi events, and past lives in an effort to explain the totality of human experience.

Healing States: A Journey Into the World of Spiritual Healing and Shamanism


A colorful and compelling examination of evidence for the mind’s ability to heal, taking a step into the fascinating world of psychic healing and shamanism. 80 black-and-white photographs. Although the authors of this provocative exploration into the spiritual realms of healing are trained in the orthodoxies of Western medicine and psychology (both have doctorates and are researchers and scientists in San Francisco), their inquiries into “mind over matter” phenomena have led them to conclude that science alone is inadequate in treating human illness. (On this subject, they note the question put to them by a Peruvian shaman: “In the training of your healers, what steps do they take to attune Mother Earth and the Great Spirit?”) By observing diverse parapsychological and metaphysical methods of mediums, spiritists and others following “indigenous” healing from ancient to contemporary societies, Villoldo and Krippner enhance our concept of health by incorporating ideas that are ignored by allopathic medicine, a process advocated by the World Health Organization. The freshness of their approach results in a steady level of stimulation.

Dream Telepathy: Experiments in Nocturnal Extrasensory Perception (Studies in Consciousness)


This engrossing book tells the story behind the famed dream experiments at Brooklyn’s Maimonides Medical Center where mind-to-mind communication was put to the test. The research procedures are described in a reader-friendly manner, as is their statistical analysis. The many anecdotes and examples are fascinating in their own right; they will be welcomed by those who think that telepathy is possible and will challenge the scoffers. More important, this account demonstrates how science can examine unusual real-life experiences using both rigor and imagination.
