This project aims at investigating the characteristics of so-called anomalous, non-ordinary or exceptional experiences in non-pathological mental conditions, e.g. spiritual, spontaneous out-of-body experiences, visions of disincarnate beings or deceased persons, premonitions, etc.
In particular, we are interested in the relationship of these experiences with the quality and the meaning of life.
Within this project we are also involved in the Gruppo di Ricerca Italiano sulla Medianità.
