graphic-f11rv-bldgs-drawAs part of its ongoing education mission the Rhine Research Center is offering a series of online courses in professional parapsychology. Starting February 17 and going through March 9th the Rhine is offering a fantastic opportunity to learn Remote Viewing from one of the main players in the U.S. government’s psychic spy program:

This 4-week online introduction to remote viewing (RV) will discuss RV’s origins and history, scientific protocols, methodologies, applications, success stories and failures, explanatory theories, skeptical critiques, and much more, including brief instruction to the RV process and an opportunity to perform your own remote viewing session during the course of instruction. The controversy surrounding teaching of remote viewing will be discussed, and you will be introduced to the roles played in remote viewing by some of the most significant personalities in the field, including such luminaries as Ingo Swann, Hal Puthoff, Russell Targ, Joseph McMoneagle, Ed May, and others.

Instructor Paul H. Smith, Ph.D. was for seven years a member of Project Star Gate, the US government remote viewing program, working as an operational remote viewer, trainer, and the program’s official historian. He still actively teaches remote viewing in its various aspects, and is current president of IRVA, the International Remote Viewing Association.

Unbelievable! Investigations from the Duke Parapsychology Laboratory with Author Stacy Horn

Posted in > EVENTS by David on September 21, 2013

On Monday, October 28th author Stacy Horn will present an illustrated talk on the history of the Rhine Research Center and the development of parapsychology in the 20th century. Strange and unexplained things happen.  For most of history, science has always disdained the field of parapsychology.  But there was a brief moment in the early 1930′s when the scientific community thought, well, okay, ectoplasm, seances and table rappings aside, maybe there is something going on. Duke University opened a lab to study the various phenomena, and for a few decades, a group of serious scientists and graduate students tried to find if there was anything to it all.

Horn went down to Duke University and went through the 700-plus boxes that comprise the lab archives.  Her lecture will cover what she found there, including: possible evidence for ESP and psychokinesis, the true story behind the famous case that inspired the book and movie, The Exorcist, the story that inspired the movie The Poltergeist, and other stories of psychics, skeptics and a 16 year survey of 30,000 ghost stories.

Stacy Horn is the author of, Imperfect Harmony: Finding Happiness Singing with Others, (Algonquin Books, 2013).  Her previous books include, Unbelievable: Investigations into Ghosts, Poltergeists, Telepathy, and Other Unseen Phenomena from the Duke Parapsychology Laboratory (Ecco/HarperCollins, 2010) and The Restless Sleep:  Inside New York City’s Cold Case Squad, (Viking Press, 2005).

This event is event is produced as a joint collaboration between Liminal Analytics and photographer Shannon Taggart.
