Poltergeists: In Depth: The term “poltergeist” translates to “noisy ghost,” which is how 16th Century Germans saw the particular physical phenomena when they coined the term. Beginning in the early 20th Century and by the 1950s–based on hundreds of case investigations and research studies–parapsychologists formed a new model: living agent psychokinesis (PK).

Learn why this model holds up so well, how it helps us resolve the situations and how it connects to lab research on PK. Why do some people become poltergeist agents and why are “little poltergeists” so common?

We’ll also consider PK caused by apparent apparitions/entities, how the activity and experiences differ, and why apparitional PK activity is no longer called “poltergeist activity” here in the US.

Finally, we’ll look at the how the living-agent distinction is not necessarily made in other parts of the world, such as the UK, what recent analyses of activity in cases has revealed, and how much poltergeist activity in recent times has actually focused on electronic devices in our lives and happen in small ways to all of us.

With some focus on the work of the late William G. Roll, who formalized the model used for living agent PK, we’ll take a really close look at noisy ghosts!

The class will be recorded, and you will receive the mp3 afterwards, as well as a number of articles and supporting text documents.

ESP WARS: EAST AND WEST now available on Amazon!

The new book I’ve co-authored with Edwin C. May and Victor Rubel is now available on Amazon.com — other online booksellers and ebook formats to come!


An Account of the Military Use of Psychic Espionage as Narrated by 
the Key Russian and American Players

Was there really a government-sanctioned psychic program in the US?

What were their goals? Were they successful?

Were there fights in Congress about the program? Did our Military support it fully?

Was the US program set up in response to a Soviet program?

Did the Soviet Union actually create psychic (psychotronic) weapons and generators?

What was the involvement of the KGB?

Have psychics had any influence over politics and decisions in the US? In the Soviet Union? In Russia?

Has Russia continued with psychic espionage even as the US shut down its program?

Has there been a psychic arms race…a series of ESP Wars?

Read the real stories of the American and Soviet/Russian ESP programs and how ESP was used in intelligence gathering and other applications. Learn the greater story of why these major powers saw fit to put stock in something so many academics dismiss out of turn and what practical value was found for Military and Intelligence operations.

Delve into the politics that led to, supported, and eventually shut down the psychic espionage programs – and why the US program, at least, has not been resurrected in light of the events of the first decade of the 21st century.

With commentary and insights from the former US program director (Edwin C. May), the Army’s remote viewing agent 001 (Joe McMoneagle) and several Russian military/former KGB officers and experts, ESP WARS gives you an insiders’ view of what really went on, how it happened, and why.

This book will be of interest to anyone interested in ESP (especially Remote Viewing), as well as how ESP has been successfully applied in missions of last resort for the Defense Department, CIA and other agencies.

The book will especially be of interest to those looking for material on the politics and funding of classified projects, as well as the people participating in them, supporting them, and those with an axe to grind.

The Russian (and Soviet) sources present readers with a narrative of the place of psychic abilities in their society and politics, how the KGB was (and was not) involved, how psychics were brought into political decisions and even how psychics ended up in tanks on the front lines in the war in Chechnya.

Those interested in international politics will find much to chew on here as well, especially insight into what went on during a number of difficult political situations at the end of the reign of the Soviet Union. Also of great interest is the perspective (and experiences) of our high-ranking Russian sources with regards to the KGB.

For a story that transcends merely dealing with the “psychic” in “psychic spying,” for a narrative of politics and classified projects, ESP WARS will hold your attention from start to finish.

As a bit of a tease at the end is an appendix with declassified material from the US Star Gate Program (watch for future material to be made available).

Individual/Group Mentoring Available — Custom Group Classes, too.

Just thought to post that besides the regular courses I offer through HCH Institute and the Rhine Education Center (part of the Rhine Research Center), I am also available for the following:

Mentoring/Coaching: Investigators: For individuals or even groups, I am available to help you with furthering your understanding of the paranormal and Parapsychology, to bring your field investigations to the next level, and to be clear on how you should best deal with evidence and your clients.

Mentoring/Coaching: Psychics, Mediums and Sensitives: I have been working with several psychics, mediums and fledgling sensitives for some time helping them find their strengths, further develop their control (of their abilities), and consider ethical and business issues when dealing with clients both for readings and for investigations.

Custom Group Classes: I am happy to create specific seminars and classes for groups, whether in the Bay Area or beyond — pretty much anywhere in the country. These can be delivered in a couple of distance formats, or if you have enough people to warrant it, I can come to you.

Free consultation on Education: Feel free to contact me with questions on furthering your education in the paranormal and Parapsychology. While naturally I’d love to work with you, I can also point you to others in my field, as well as to resources and organizations that will help with educating yourself — some free!

Loyd Auerbach’s YouTube Channel is now Live!!

Visit parapsychologist Loyd Auerbach’s new YouTube Channel, featuring numerous appearances he’s had on TV, going back to the early 1980s, including some pieces from 1984, when GHOSTBUSTERS was the top film, and from 1986, when his first book, ESP, HAUNTINGS AND POLTERGEISTS: A Parapsychologist’s Handbook, was released.



Professor Auerbach will be adding more (as time permits), including some other interesting footage he has in his video library.

For example, he has added an extended-cut of a new piece shot and aired by nationally syndicated Independent Network News in 1983. The piece focuses on the research into Out of Body Experiences (OBEs) conducted by Dr. Karlis Osis and Donna McCormick at the American Society for Psychical Research. The original piece was much shorter, but Auerbach was able to edit a longer piece from additional interview footage provided to the ASPR by the producer.

Looking for Evidence for Psi? Check this out!!!

Dr. Dean Radin has created a new page with links to papers providing some of the best evidence for the existence (and form) of psi (psychic phenomena and abilities). From the list, one can download the papers for free.


These are “Selected Peer-Reviewed Journal Publications on Psi Research.”

Also on the page are links to websites with access to additional papers, and a list of recent books recommended to get one “up to speed” on Psi Research.

According to Radin, there will be additional papers added as time goes on, so check back often.


New Book on Scientific Research with Mediums

My friend and colleague, Julie Beischel, PhD, has just released a terrific ebook (Kindle format so far, others to come).


Easy to read and understand and with a light-hearted touch, the book is a wonderful introduction to the application of science to a human experience that is thousands of years old yet which has been ignored or dismissed by most of the scientific community. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in mediumship, in the mounting evidence for life after death, in the very real potential for mediums in the grieving process, and in how science can be applied to the so-called paranormal.

Mentoring for Paranormal Investigators and Ghost Hunters

Loyd Auerbach will be offering mentoring for individuals and groups/teams of investigators and ghost hunters beginning September 2012.

Rather than formal set courses, this mentoring will take the form of a program (or one time sessions) allowing people who investigate paranormal activity and haunted locations or go on ghost hunts to discuss and gain guidance where needed on their specific cases, as well as their methodologies, equipment and evidence with an active parapsychologist who specializing in field investigations.

A big part of the mentoring will be to support groups/teams/individuals in their efforts to actually help their clients deal with the phenomena and their experiences, something often lacking in the experience and any of the informal training for ghost hunters/paranormal investigators.

More than that, by doing this on an “as needed” basis, rather than a scheduled course, groups/teams/individuals can come to their mentor when they need clarification, more information, help/support in specific cases, and assessment of their gathered evidence and data (and what to do with it).

Auerbach will also provide support for individuals who may be psychically “sensitive” (but with little experience as a working psychic or medium), and for groups/teams working with those who are sensitive to the paranormal.

Finally, as Loyd Auerbach is connected to various field researchers, experimental parapsychologists, and additional scientists in other fields as well as research organizations, he can also provide referrals to others for “second opinions” or for further information in specialized areas. Auerbach himself has over 30 years field experience and who has been teaching Parapsychology for nearly as long (in both graduate school and for non-academic audiences). In addition, he has the additional insight of someone with background and knowledge in the laboratory studies of ESP, PK and Mediumship, as well as studies of Near Death Experiences, Out of Body Experiences, and paranormal beliefs. He has guided and mentored his own students in their investigative and research work long after they finished their courses with him.

Mentoring will be in the form of phone or Skype calls, email, or in-person consults (the latter for those in the San Francisco Bay Area).

If you are a ghost hunter or paranormal investigator who wishes to bring your work to the next level, or just someone starting out who wants some guidance, contact Loyd Auerbach for more information on his upcoming Paranormal Mentoring Program.

Please note that not everyone will be accepted for mentoring. Candidates will need to have a phone/Skype interview with Prof. Auerbach to determine whether the individual or group fits.

Loyd Auerbach can be reached by email at profparanormal@gmail.com, through his Facebook page at www.facebook.com/loyd.auerbach or by calling the Office of Paranormal Investigations and leaving a message, (415) 871-0175.
