Suscitatio Enterprises LLC; 2006 - 2007
Submission Deadline: October 15, 2007
We realize all too well the subtle linking of individuals between certain subcultures – the fact that not everyone who personally identifies as “vampiric”, or as an “energy worker”, “therian”, “otherkin”, or otherwise “awakened” participate in discussions in a community environment or even associate with the aforementioned label terminology. Therefore, we are cross-posting in various, though selective, communities information about the existence of this important study as a final measure of exposure to potential participants who may directly identify with the scope of this study. The surveys located at the web site above represent a landmark study into a variety of diverse though often linked subcultures and have already opened avenues to further exploration into the medical, psychological, spiritual, and cultural ties that shape our communities and lives. This study will assist in teaching us more about ourselves while helping to dispel misconceptions about the practices, beliefs, attitudes, and demographics of those who identify with the following:
* Energy Work (Psionics, Healers, Reiki, Psychics, Empathy, etc.)
* Vampirism (Modern Sanguinarian & Psi / Psychic)
* Otherkin, Therians, & Shifters
* Magick Practitioners (Occultists, Wiccans, Pagans, Spiritualists, etc.)
* Awakened Individuals (Higher Consciousness, Shaman, Indigo, etc.)
Please take the time over the next few days to complete both these important surveys (VEWRS = Part 1; AVEWRS = Part 2) and submit them to us as soon as possible. If there are questions that are not applicable to your particular situation please indicate such or where “Not Applicable” is not a given option, simply leave blank. You do NOT have to identify with vampirism (sanguine nor psychic) to participate in this research – there are broad demographic, cultural, experience, medical, spiritual, abilities, and perceptions that can be answered by a diversity of individuals from all paths and beliefs.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: This is a mixed methodological study of specific subcultural social group(s) (or independents) linked by association with specific reported phenomena and is directed towards both an online and offline audience via quantitative and qualitative dual anonymous surveys. For a detailed purpose, definition and precedent background, ethical and privacy procedures, and all other information regarding this privately funded study please refer to the surveys themselves or the web site listed above. Focus Group: Those who identify themselves as practitioners of modern psychic (psi) or sanguinarian (blood) vampi(y)rism with a joint focus on energy workers or practitioners (psions, energetic healers, or others who manipulate psi/pranic energy). Additionally those who identify with therianthropy, otherkin, and as being "awakened" individuals are sub-branched in the overall classification.
