Lalsingh Harribance was born to an East Indian family in southern Trinidad on November 11, 1939. He was raised as a Hindu, but attended Christian schools in his earlier years and was eventually baptized at the age of 26. It was at this time that he chose the name, Sean, by which he is known today. After leaving school during his teenage years, in order to help his family, he worked in the oilfield and later was employed as a cashier for the bus service. It was then that a man named Richard Jackman became aware of Sean’s abilities.

Mr. Jackman, than editor and manager of the Trinidad Guardian, became more and more interested in the accuracy of Sean’s predictions. After getting to know Sean, Mr. Jackman decided to introduce him to a psychologist named Hamllyn Dukhan. Dr. Dukhan had been informed of Sean’s acute perception and decided that scientific testing was necessary to document the full extent of his abilities.

After several years of testing, Sean was then invited to the Foundation for Research on the Nature of Man to be further researched by Dr. J. B. Rhine on January 17, 1969. Sean worked with Dr. Rhine, Dr. William G. Roll of the Psychical Research Foundation, and various visiting professors and researchers. Fifty-one papers to date were published in scientific journals as a result of work done with Sean. Sean’s tests were presented to The American Association  for The Advancement of Science in 1970.

The studies were based on testing that was done under very strict conditions where the use of all five senses was blocked. The probability of Sean having gotten the test scores in 1,000 guesses by chance was one in 100 trillion. Moreover, Sean was the first to get high scores on ESP tests where EEG sensors were used. He was also the first to show a link between high ESP scores and a specific brain wave. In 1976, the parapsychology labs could no longer give him a salary so he moved to Maryland in search of research funds from government sources. In Maryland he did some work with Mankind Research, and continued some part-time research with Duke University. Sean began to realize that by proving himself to others, he could generate further interest in parapsychology, and the psi research.

During his personal consultations with clients, which included doctors, lawyers, politicians and others, Sean continued to demonstrate that his abilities were genuine. After witnessing his extraordinary abilities, Sean’s clients spread the word and encouraged friends to visit him and experience these abilities for themselves. Sean’s number of clients continued to increase because of the accuracy of his predictions. Sean did not advertise. He made a number of successful national predictions, for when those come true it can convince a greater number of people and be further proof for ESP and precognition.

Unfortunately, Sean was not successful in obtaining the research funds he needed in Washington D.C. He found it necessary to move closer to his clients in Texas and Louisiana, those that had supported him since the early 1970’s.

Since 1980, Sean has lived in the Houston area. He continues to visit with clients.

Sean has done over 100,000 readings, in both Trinidad and in the United States. Many visit him repeatedly over the years.

In 1995 the not for profit corporation, the Sean Harribance® Institute for Parapsychology Research, Inc. (SHIPR Inc) was founded. In 1996 and 1997 Sean, Dr. Roll, and (in 1997) Cheryl Alexander (from the Rhine Research Center) traveled to Dr. Persinger at Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, to participate in the brain studies presented at the Parapsychological Association meeting in August 1998. The SHIPR paid for the travel expenses for Sean, Dr. Roll, and Cheryl Alexander. Sean returned to Dr. Persinger for further research in 2000 and 2009. Some of this work was presented to the American Psychological Association (APA) in 2008 and reported in Neuroquantology (which can be found on-line)  in December, 2010. The SHIPR is looking for funding to continue this research in brain studies with Sean and with other gifted psychics, and are looking for other proven psychics. We are seeking funding through your tax-deductible donations to make this possible.
