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.

Eben Alexander

IRVA proudly announces Dr. Eben Alexander, New York Times best-selling author of Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey Into The Afterlife as our keynote speaker. Dr. Alexander will speak on The Profound Mystery of Consciousness: The Hard Problem and the Quantum Enigma.

In 2008 neurosurgeon, Dr. Eben Alexander lay comatose in a hospital, a rare form of bacterial meningitis attacking his brain. His neocortex, the part of the brain that controls sensory perception, conscious thought and language, among other functions, had shut down completely. "My memories of my life on earth, of this universe and certainly of family and all my words, language, all of that was completely gone," he says. Which is why what happened next is what opened this man of science to the existence of an afterlife.
