Overview

Interest in psychic and paranormal phenomena has never been greater-which also means there is more confusion than ever about which claims are bogus and which are authentic. That's why Jack Rourke's perspective is so valuable. As both a practicing psychic and a dedicated parapsychological researcher, Jack is uniquely qualified to provide this inside-out, shockingly candid and thorough explanation of what psychic perception really is. and what it isn't.

In The Rational PsychicT, Jack Rourke presents a detailed, thoughtful, and often surprising examination of seemingly supernatural and psychic events. Relying on decades of first-hand experiences and scholarly investigation, he explores fascinating subjects such as:

  • Why all people are extrasensory but not necessarily psychic
  • The difference between genuine psychic ability and paranormal perception
  • The hidden dangers of psychic development
  • What's really occurring when sensitive people discern ghosts and malicious spirits
  • How neuroscience and modern physics account for psychic perception
  • How to identify, access, and strengthen your psychic abilities

"You don't have to surrender logic or adopt any exotic beliefs to accept that psychic phenomena are real," Jack Rourke explains. "Nor do you have to automatically deny any evidence about the paranormal to be a critical thinker." Whether you are seeking answers about your own mysterious experiences, interested in developing your own psychic gifts, or simply a curious skeptic, The Rational Psychic is a must-read book that will challenge what you think you know while making sense of the unexplained.
