In this update we are excited to announce several new publications, including a paperback compilation which includes all three of Dr. Beischel’s previously published e-books and additional essays, along with Mark’s new book, Visualizing Intention. There are also new audio interviews, an article in the October issue of ELLE magazine, and more.
For the first time all in one place, Investigating Mediums features Julie’s three books previously only available electronically: Among Mediums: A Scientist’s Quest for Answers (an accessible, bite-sized review of Julie’s journey and the answers she discovered along the way), Meaningful Messages: Making the Most of Your Mediumship Reading (which provides 10 helpful hints to keep in mind as you prepare for, experience, and reflect on a reading from a medium), and From the Mouths of Mediums Vol. 1: Experiencing Communication (where 13 Windbridge Certified Research Mediums discuss how they experience communication from the deceased, suggestions for how you can experience communication, and why it might be that you have not heard from your loved one).
While offering print copies of any of the three books individually is still not cost-effective, putting them all together and offering it as a print collection has made it financially viable. In addition to the three e-books, Investigating Mediums also includes articles which discuss: mediums’ views about the afterlife; grief and mediumship; our deceased animal loved ones; and the three mediumship research programs at the Windbridge Institute. Investigating Mediums currently sells on Amazon for $11.99 (price subject to change without notice). You can also ask your local bookstore to order it for you from their catalog if they do not carry it.

Visualizing Intention: Art informed by Science
by Mark Boccuzzi
From Mark: “A little over a year ago I started the PsiForm project. The goal of the project was to develop new techniques to visualize different types of data. The hope was that by converting the raw data from devices like random event generators (REGs) or environmental monitors into 3D images we might be able to make new discoveries. While I’m still working on formal, scientifically accurate data visualizations, the PsiForm project became an artistic endeavor that focused on the aesthetics of images that could be created from our data. To date I have run dozens of PsiForm sessions which have produced images from data that were collected while individuals or groups concentrated on specific desires or ideas. Sessions have also been run in which people invited their departed loved ones to participate. As a result, I now have a sizable collection of intention stories and their associated PsiForm images.
My new photo book, Visualizing Intention, provides background information about the PsiForm process and the underlying science and a selection of images and their stories. In addition, the book includes 12 images created from data that were data collected while meditators focused on specific ideas. These images can be used as the focus of your own meditation practice.”
This book is the first in almost 40 years to provide a comprehensive scientific overview of research in the field of parapsychology, explaining what we know and don’t know about psi phenomena including telepathy, precognition, and psychokinesis.
The text contains 31 chapters by 37 preeminent experts in parapsychology. In Chapter 23: Mental Mediumship, Julie Beischel and Nancy Zingrone primarily discuss the quantitative, qualitative, proof-oriented, and process-oriented aspects of mediumship research performed by the limited number of researchers who have published studies since 2001.
