The SNU is supporting 'Hearing the voice'
'Hearing the voice' is an ambitious research project being run by Durham University which aims to provide a better understanding of what it is like to hear a voice when apparently, no one is speaking.

Have you ever had spiritual communications?


We want to know more about what these experiences are like.

At Durham University we are running a study on 'clairaudient' experiences, where people hear spiritual voices talking to them, or feel like they are being communicated with in some way. We are particularly interested in hearing from you if you are aged 18-75, and you have not had a psychiatric diagnosis.

We'd like to hear from you if you have regular clairaudient experiences, but we are also interested in working with people who attend Spiritualist churches but don't have such experiences.

We are running a few different studies which involve being interviewed about your experiences, completing some simple tasks on a computer, or having your brain scanned using MRI.

You can take part in as many or as few of these studies as you please.



If you are interested on potentially taking part, please contact:

Dr Peter Moseley at
or by telephone on 0191 334 8166 for more information.
