Welcome to the International Remote Viewing Association

icoEye IRVA is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the responsible use and development of remote viewing. We are an independently formed member organization of scientists, remote viewing professionals, students, and other interested persons. For more information, read the Letter of Invitation from Russell Targ, President Emeritus of IRVA.

Remote viewing is a novel perceptual discipline for gaining information not available to the ordinary physical senses. Used extensively by so-called "psychic spies" during the Cold War for classified military projects, it has a long history both as an intelligence gathering tool and as the subject of research and applications in the civilian world. Remote viewing has now taken a long step into the public domain with the formation of a professional association to educate, research, propose standards, test performance, and promote public awareness of this unique human mental capacity.

"What is Remote Viewing?" to be featured at the 2016 Remote Viewing Conference with Dr. Paul Smith

IRVA 2015 Remote Viewing Conference

Because of a high percentage of people attending the 2016 Remote Viewing conference who have only recently discovered remote viewing, we have added yet another interactive opportunity to the conference line up. "What is Remote Viewing?" will be a 90-minute presentation and audience participation workshop featuring former Star Gate military remote viewer and current president of the International Remote Viewing Association, Dr. Paul H. Smith (Major, US Army, ret.).

Dr. Smith's presentation will give you a good foundation and answer many questions people often ask when first beginning to explore remote viewing. You will learn what remote viewing is, get a brief introduction to how it got started, enjoy a taste of some of the amazing results remote viewers experienced, and have an opportunity to try to achieve your own results in an actual remote viewing exercise guided by Dr. Smith himself. This workshop will be offered on Friday morning, 23 September prior to the official start of the 2016 Remote Viewing Conference (participation is open to anyone attending the conference, whether novice or experienced in remote viewing).

This workshop is included at no extra cost for those registered for the conference. (Those not attending the conference may take the workshop alone for a $50 fee.) Sign up for the conference today and get the workshop for free!
