Founded in 1965, the Unitarian Society for Psychical Studies aims to provide a forum for discussion on issues such as survival of consciousness and continuing spiritual development beyond physical death, whilst maintaining the view that human beings and the universe have a transcendent essence that may reveal other realms of reality, and also that human consciousness has dimensions that extend beyond body and mind.

The Society's aim is to encourage the study of psychical phenomena in all aspects with a critical and open mind.

It is open to Unitarians and non-Unitarians alike. It carries on its work principally in the following ways:

  • by publishing a journal, Psychical Studies

  • by holding an annual conference

  • by holding other meetings, notably one at the Annual Meetings of the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches at which a lecture is given on some aspect of psychical studies by someone prominent in the field of psychical research.
