New in the Media:
A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

An interview with Windbridge Institute Researcher, Mark Boccuzzi, about PsiArt.Net:

"Our goal at the Windbridge Institute is to focus on applied research; that is, to develop ways to make people’s lives better on a daily basis. We believe that art can do that, especially art that allows people to explore the non-local impact of our intentions or art that serves as a reminder of our continued connections to those who have passed."

BAM Study: 33% Funded
Can hearing from the dead heal the living?

Every day, people receive readings from psychic mediums.
Is this helpful for the grieving?
Science doesn't know.

The Bereavement and Mediumship (BAM) Study aims to figure it out.

Researchers at the Windbridge Institute are raising funds in order to perform the BAM Study, a randomized clinical trial examining the potential clinical benefits of personal mediumship readings. More information is available at www.afterlifescience.com

New Research:

Application of Digital Infrared Thermographic Imaging to Macroscopic Psychokinetic Phenomena Reported During Séances with a Physical Medium

Windbridge Institute co-founder and researcher, Mark Boccuzzi was awarded a 2013 grant from the Parapsychological Association's (PA) Gilbert Roller Fund. The fund supports "scientific field investigations into macroscopic psychokinetic phenomena such as those reported in sitter-groups, séances, and poltergeist activity, and/or theoretical approaches to help explain the nature of such large-scale effects."

This year, the fund is also supporting the research of Windbridge Institute Scientific Advisory Board Member, Stephen E. Braude, PhD, for his continuing work with Felix Experimental Group from Germany.

The Press Release can be read here.

Thank you Parapsychological Association for supporting this research!


New Research:

Invited Ostensible Discarnate Interactions with Electronic Equipment II

We are excited to announce that Windbridge Institute co-founder and researcher, Mark Boccuzzi, was awarded a new research grant from the Helene Reeder Memorial Fund for Research into Life after Death. The project is to replicate and extend his work on Invited Ostensible Discarnate Interactions with Electronic Equipment.

This is Mark's second HRMF award. He presented the first part of the study at the 55th Annual Convention of the Parapsychological Association last year.

We are very thankful to the fund for the support required to continue this research.
