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.

The IRVA 2016 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.

Announcing IRVA Conference 2016
Happy Mardi Gras from the International Remote Viewing Association!
We're really looking forward to our next conference in the "Big Easy,"
(where a different kind of excitement is happening today!) Those who were
with us in New Orleans last year will remember what a blast we had, in
addition to all the fascinating remote viewing insights & experience we
We do have a change to announce - The conference date has been moved to
September 23-25, 2016. June turned out to be overcrowded with other,
related conferences, and so to make life easier for those who might want to
attend, we've opted for early Fall.
Another important piece of news is that to show our solidarity with the
Applied Precognition Project, we are offering a $50 discount on the
IRVA2016 registration fee for anyone with paid attendance at the APP's
Conference in June.
Further info and registration details will follow, soon!
