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

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
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).
