The term paranormal has existed in the English language since at least the 1920’s and consists of two parts: para and normal, which implies that the scientific explanation of the world around us is ‘normal’ and anything that is above, beyond, or contrary to that is ‘para’. That “above, beyond, or contrary to”, is where our team comes in.
The Society for Paranormal Research and Investigation using Intuition, Technology and Skill (also known as S.P.I.R.I.T.S. of the Hudson Valley) is a New York based team made up of professional and respectful individuals who take the paranormal field seriously, and as our name implies, use intuition, technology and skill to research, investigate, and document paranormal phenomena.
With experience, professionalism, compassion, and a wide range of talents to lend to a thorough investigation, the S.P.I.R.I.T.S. of the Hudson Valley team offers state of the art paranormal investigations at no charge. Whether you would like your particular case to be public or private we are available to serve you.
Although located in the Hudson Valley region of New York State we are willing to travel and are also available for lectures and public engagements.
We are interested in it all, from ghosts (or those in spirit as we like to refer to them), to extraterrestrial life, U.F.O.’s, cryptids and more. Many people have theories of what happens to us when we die, we are interested in trying to find out, from those who have transitioned to that state, what the answer is. While our team members believe in the existence of spirit people (or ghosts), we never assume that any activity is the result of a ghost or other form of paranormal phenomena. We base our findings on the evidence we collect using photography, video, audio, various instruments, and in some cases the addition of the findings of our medium and empaths.
All evidence collected is kept strictly confidential unless we receive written permission from the client to release or publish any information. Any authorized release of our evidence will be made available to the public unaltered via our Facebook and Twitter pages, our YouTube channel, and on our website.
Our mission is to maintain a high degree of professionalism at all times while maintaining strict confidentiality (if the client so wishes), and sensitivity towards the clients situation and for the deceased. The well being of the client is of utmost importance to us at all times. We are adamantly against provoking of any kind and breaches of confidentiality. We believe strongly in ParaUnity, paranormal teams working together respectfully and in unity, uplifting and encouraging each other, helping each other, learning from each other and working in harmony to make the field a better one.
We never charge for our services and every client receives a DVD to keep with highlights from the investigation if any evidence is captured.
