Tuesday, 24th July 2018Spiritually Significant Voices project

As Co-Investigators on the Hearing the Voice Project, funded by Wellcome Trust, we would like to request that any readers who have had experiences of spiritually significant voices (or voice-like experiences) would consider completing a survey which may be found online at this URL: https://durham.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/spiritvoices

Spiritually significant voices take a variety of forms. Some people find the term “hearing voices” a useful way to describe their experience, others refer more specifically to hearing God, angels, saints, demons, or other spiritual beings. Others hear sounds but not speech, describe loud thoughts, or feel the presence of God, angels, demons, or other beings. For some people such experiences have been rare – perhaps once in a lifetime – and for others they are ongoing. Our aim is to develop a better understanding of all of these experiences. Anyone can take part who has had first-hand experience of hearing a spiritually significant voice, as long as they are 16 years of age or over.
