I am Doctor Angela Puca, University Lecturer and PhD in Anthropology of Religion. As a passionate academic in the fields of Philosophy and Religious Studies, I opened this channel to share the knowledge that I progressively acquire, comprised of the related primary and secondary sources. I hope this channel will create a community for sharing and spreading ideas beyond the confinements of academia.
My main interests are witchcraft, magic and its relation to religion as well as its philosophical underpinning, paganism, shamanism, Eastern and Western philosophy.
Please, consider supporting my work by entering my Inner Symposium here.
Presented by Dr. Andreas Sommer, former Fellow in History & Philosophy of Science at the University of Cambridge, and history adviser for the BBC drama 'The Living and The Dead'. (For a biosketch and list of academic publications, see here.)
Why everything you thought you knew about science and the “supernatural” is probably wrong. - Not to debunk nor to validate, but to understand why elite scientists have believed as well as disbelieved in magic. Accompanying website: www.forbiddenhistories.com/welcome

The Institute of Noetic Sciences, founded in 1973 by Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit research, education, and membership organization whose mission is supporting individual and collective transformation through consciousness research, educational outreach, and engaging a global learning community in the realization of our human potential. “Noetic” comes from the Greek word nous, which means “intuitive mind” or “inner knowing.” IONS conducts, sponsors, and collaborates on leading-edge research into the potentials and powers of consciousness, exploring phenomena that do not necessarily fit conventional scientific models while maintaining a commitment to scientific rigor.
Jason Gregory is an author, philosopher, and spiritual teacher specializing in Eastern and Western philosophy, comparative religion, psychology, cognitive science, metaphysics, and ancient cultures.

For many years he has lived in Asia studying the spiritual traditions and meditative practices of Buddhism, Hinduism, and Taoism, visiting some of the most remote places in the world.

The Parapsychological Association is an international professional organization of scientists and scholars engaged in the study of psi (or 'psychic') experiences, such as telepathy, clairvoyance, psychokinesis, psychic healing, and precognition. The primary objective of the PA is to achieve a scientific understanding of these experiences.
First established in 1957, the PA has been an affiliated organization of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) since 1969. The PA is a non-profit, non-adjudicating organization that endorses no ideologies or beliefs other than the value of rigorous scientific and scholarly inquiry.

The name Skeptiko comes from the ancient Greek philosophy of Skeptikos, and refers to the teachings and the traits of a school of philosophers of whom it was said “asserted nothing but only opined.” We're committed to following the data… wherever it leads.
- Near-death experience science and the ever growing body of peer-reviewed research surrounding it. - Parapsychology and science that defies our current understanding of consciousness. - Consciousness research and the ever expanding scientific understanding of who we are. - Spirituality and the implications of new scientific discoveries to our understanding of it. - Others and the strangeness of close encounters. - Skepticism and what we should make of the "Skeptics".
