History: Our Beginnings

Parastudy was born in the mid 1950’s as The Brookside Study Center, In Brookside, Delaware. The group was formed to study the readings of a very gifted psychic named Zoe Nickerson. She gave personal and gallery readings in what she termed“The Samadhi Consciousness” on many subjects. Her readings have been compared to those given by Edgar Cayce.

In 1959, Parastudy was officially named and formed as a non-profit Educational Organization. The name “Parastudy” was given to the organization during one of Zoe’s readings. The group moved to its present headquarters in Delaware County, PA and has been there ever since.

Parastudy membership dues are nominal so that everyone interested may receive inspirational and informational help offered through our publications, library, activities, and other services. Although overhead costs are kept to a minimum, membership dues and income from other sources do not cover Parastudy’s expenses. The deficit is balanced by sharing contributions from members on a voluntary basis. Your sharing in any amount, regularly or when able to do so, is most gratefully received and carefully used. There are no paid employees at Parastudy; only volunteers.
