"Paranormal Insider - Blog Contributed By Michelle Belanger - September 2007Is vampirism a condition that exists outside of folklore and film? Formed in 2005, the AVA is a research group devoted to the modern condition of vampirism but Dracula would never recognize these vampires as kin.
Are there real living people who psychically feed on human life force or even on blood? The vampires of the AVA are living human beings, often psychic, who have a need for the life force of others, and they have come together as a group to study and better understand that need. The AVA's Vampire and Energy Work Research Survey (Suscitatio Enterprises, LLC - circulated to thousands of self-identified vampires and energy workers around the world, has hundreds of questions, focusing on everything from an individual's religious beliefs to the minute details of their medical history.
The AVA's goal is to gather hard statistics about real vampires statistics which they hope will ultimately be taken seriously in an academic context. Featured in the recent book, Vampires in Their Own Words, the AVA has also worked with several individuals attached to colleges as part of academic research.
Most recently, they have started working with author and fellow Paranormal Insider blogger Rosemary Ellen Guiley to help add their knowledge to the future re-release of her landmark work, Vampires Among Us.
