Welcome to The AZIRE

Back in 2010, Drs. Carlos S. Alvarado and Nancy L. Zingrone, established a project called “The Alvarado Zingrone Institute for Research and Education” under their consulting business, Alvarado Consulting. The AZIRE was founded to be the category under which all of their educational activities could take place. The original site contained lots of information about their own work (and this site includes that too) but especially highlighted the founding and development of The AZIRE Library and Learning Center in the virtual world, Second Life (which was founded before the website, on August 29th, 2009), as well as the WizIQ-based and Moodle-based teaching activities of the pair (which came along in 2010 with the original website).

Both research psychologists who have spent their careers working in and around the scientific study of what seem to be psychic experiences, Alvarado and Zingrone have not only conducted quite a bit of research over their thirty-plus year collaboration but they are dedicated to providing both free and fee-based education in histories of psychical research and parapsychology as well as the findings, methods and theory of this difficult area of science.

Because standing libraries in the “real world” are so expensive to develop and maintain and bricks and mortar institutions of higher education so unlikely to embrace this type of research or education — especially in the United States where Alvarado and Zingrone live — they have moved their efforts online. This website is designed to highlight these efforts and provide additional resources for the serious student of the field, whether they are pursuing a personal passion or adding to their academic or scientific skill set. And, of course, if you are interested in their consulting form, there is a page to introduce that and link over to the .com site as well.

  1. My 8year old daughter told me something really bad was going to happen and that somebody was going to hurt her. We had an extremely close relationship and I had many conversations with her about it.
    On the 18th of September 2015 she was killed by a drunk driver, speeding down a residential road.
    30 days before she died she had being playing on my laptop alone when she had “some kind of experience” it is clear that she was extremely traumatized and somehow took images and video, which we only discovered after her death. I need somebody to talk to about this. Please help.

  2. Dear John:

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I think you might want to get in touch with our friends Phran and Bob Ginsberg of the Forever Family Foundation. Not only will they understand your grief (they lost their daughter when she was a teen) but they have a wonderful organization that provides grieving family members with information and activities. In addition, the President of their Board is a paranormal investigator who is very trustworthy. Here is their website: https://www.foreverfamilyfoundation.org/. I’ll write you privately with their email.



  3. Dear Nancy: I am pleased to see the beauty of this project and how well it is all going. Thanks so much for allowing me to be a part of it and for everything you are doing for this wonderful scientific field. Best wishes and much success to you and Carlos!
