International Association of
Parapsychologists
New Age association founded in 1965 to bring together individuals
in all phases of parapsychology, organic gardening,
sciences, and arts and ‘‘to build a new age town incorporating
new age thought with no masters, gurus, or teachers such as
leaders, and no particular teachings.’’
The association believed that each individual is an ‘‘instrument
of light’’ or ‘‘temple’’ and not part of a commune or family.
It bestowed awards, conducted charitable and specialized
educational programs, and offers children’s services. It maintained
a library of approximately 1,000 volumes on parapsychology,
science, herbs, UFOs, and related subjects and published
Luminator News. Last known address P.O. Box 1450,
