IRVA

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.

Announcing IRVA 2015 Call For Papers

call for papers

The IRVA 2015 Remote Viewing Conference seeks to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of remote viewing. Our aim is to enrich the issues and contribute to the understanding of remote viewing with empirical research and an overall perspective.

We solicit submissions in any area that explores issues relevant to remote viewing or related fields. Appropriate topics include remote viewing history, philosophy, theory, practice, training techniques, research, etc. Innovative contributions that do not fit within these parameters will also be considered if they may be of interest to conference attendees.

The conference will be held June 26-28, 2015, at the Hyatt French Quarter in New Orleans, LA.(Download the Call for Papers.)
