  • CORPORATE RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCES
    • group of individuals all have the same/similar religious experience at the same time
      • Bible: story of Pentecost (Chapter 2 of the Book of Acts)- all felt the same rush of wind and saw tongues of fire
      • Toronto Blessing 1994: all experienced feeling overcome by the holy spirit
      • More evidential force than solitary experiences
        • More times an experience can be witnessed by different people the more weight it holds; group experiences can be more veridical
          • However: may be elements of group pressure- experiences are caused by whipped up hysteria in a heightened emotional atmosphere rather than by the holy spirit
  • Toronto Blessing 1994: all experienced feeling overcome by the holy spirit
