Main Research Programs

Our primary focus is on applied research with the goal of developing and distributing information, services, and technologies that allow people to reach their full potential so they can live happier, healthier, and more fulfilling lives.

Basic Parapsychology
This program explores traditional parapsychological topics (i.e., telepathy, precognition, clairvoyance, and psychokinesis or mind-matter interactions) as well as experimenter effects, alternative healing, intention, our connection to each other, and the potential that exists within each of us.

Life After Death
Life After Death (or Survival of Consciousness) research examines mediums and the information they report, investigates technologies that may be useful in enhancing interaction and communication with the deceased [i.e., electronic voice phenomena (EVP) and instrumental transcommunication (ITC)], addresses reports of haunting and apparition phenomena, and explores afterlife cosmology.

Science that matters. Knowledge you can use.

Our goal is to bring the information gained during research directly to the public in a timely fashion. We achieve this by:

Providing periodic updates about the status of the research in our e-newsletters, social media, and public email list updates.

Presenting results at meetings, workshop, and academic conferences.

Publishing results in peer-reviewed journalsacademic texts, books, and on our web site.

Publicizing results of studies in the mainstream media regardless of whether they are positive (e.g., the data demonstrate the existence of a phenomenon) or negative (e.g., the study was unable to demonstrate the presence of a phenomenon).


Since its formation in 2008, Windbridge Institute scientists have been awarded research grants from a variety of funding sources including the Bial Foundation, the Helene Reeder Memorial Fund for Research into Life after Death, Parapsychological Association, and the Society for Psychical Research (SPR).
