"History shows that every intelligent man who has gone into this investigation, if he gave it adequate examination at all, has come out believing in spirits; this circumstance places the burden of proof on the shoulders of the skeptic."

March Features
Featured Evidence
One More Mission
case illustrationA 2-year-old child says and does numerous things indicating that he is the reincarnation of a World War II fighter pilot. Facts are confirmed by Naval records, surviving shipmates, and the pilot's living sister. For more proof of an afterlife, see aisles E1 through E6 in the Evidence room of the Garland Memorial Library.
Featured Biography
T. Glen Hamilton
Bio PixA successful physician and surgeon, Hamilton was living in Winnipeg, Canada, when he became interested in psychical research. He studied both mental and physical mediumship. Author Robert Louis Stevenson and missionary-explorer David Livingston were among the frequent communicators through mediums he studied.   For other biographies of important persons in the development of evidence for an afterlife, see aisle L2 and aisle L3 in the Legacy room of the Garland Memorial Library.
Featured Commentary
In Pursuit of Proof
commentary illustrationThe other day, a radio interviewer asked me what sort of test or experiment it would take to provide absolute proof of an afterlife. I wasn’t expecting that question, so all I could think of to say was that I thought the cases already on the books were proof enough. Here is what I wish that I had said.  For other articles and excerpts on topics related to Survival and psychic matters, see aisle E7 in the Evidence room of the Garland Memorial Library.
Featured Interview
Joanne McMahon
IntervieweeIf people need help in understanding paranormal phenomena, they can turn to Joanne D. S. McMahon, Ph.D., also known as “Dr. Ghost.” She heads up Parapsychological Consultation Services, Inc., which is prepared to explore most any type of phenomena. If McMahon can’t answer a client’s questions, she has a number of experts to call upon. For other interviews of important persons in the development of evidence for an afterlife, see aisle L1 in the Legacy room of the Garland Memorial Library.

New to Spiritual Experiences?
One reason, among many, that prompts people to visit this website is that they are seeking explanations or reassurance concerning a puzzling occurrence in their life. We have put together a list of some of the most common — a lot more common than you might think — events that can trigger a shift in the way that one’s consciousness relates to one’s spiritual essence. You may view this list here, and are welcome to contact us if you desire elaboration or wish to discuss your own experience. All the volunteers who make up the Academy are glad you stopped by and hope you find this site informative and our work gratifying.
