Boston Paranormal Investigators was formed in March, 2006, to promote research into all aspects of the paranormal - hauntings, UFOs, parapsychology, and any other topics that fit under this umbrella - throughout the Northeast. Members enjoy the following benefits:
* Education and training, including an extensive library
* Structured field investigations
* Monthly meetings for planning and reporting
* Assistance in conducting individual investigations
* Examination/reviewing/classifying of evidence
* Peer review of evidence
* Publishing and dissemination of findings after peer review
* Repository for evidence collected
We also focus on sharing our findings and educating the general public on these subjects by training and lecturing, helping to produce films, programs, and books, and participating in local and regional conventions and other events. In our research, we basically take a scientific approach, and we try to find natural explanations for reported phenomena while keeping an open mind. Additionally, we attempt to capture measurable, verifiable evidence using such tools as nightvision camcorders, EMF meters, remote temperature sensors, digital voice recorders, Geiger counters, motion sensors, digital still cameras, and similar technologies. In addition, we recognize the complementary value of psychics, sensitives, mediums, and others, and welcome their assistance. Members have been featured on SyFy's Ghost Hunters and on the Biography channel. We presently looking to bring a few new faces into the group.
No previous experience required, just a serious interest in the paranormal (ghosts, UFOs, etc) and (this is important!) a commitment to attend monthly business meetings and monthly investigations. If you are interested in joining our team, want to ask us a question, arrange for a speaker or presentation, or request help with a haunting, possession, or other problem, please use our contact us section.
