Help with Spiritual Experience Research

A researcher at King's College London requires participants for a study who have spiritual or 'unusual' experiences on a regular basis to participate in a study investigating the relationship between cognition and stress in 'real life environments'.

The title of the research is: 'The relationship between stress and cognitive performance in ‘real life’ environments'.

“We are interested in talking to people who have had ‘unusual’, spiritual or mystical experiences, on at least an occasional basis, in the last five years. Volunteers must be between the ages of 18 and 64 with; no history of neurological problems, normal or corrected to normal eyesight and hearing, and a proficient grasp of the English language to complete assessments.

The aim of the study is to investigate why some people who have regular ‘unusual’ experiences are more resilient to stress than others. We hope this research will help develop treatments for those who are distressed by their experiences and help better understand the relationship between stress and cognition for different groups of people.”

The study pays £15 plus travel expenses per session. The study consists of 3 sessions which last 1.5-2 hours.
