What is Remote Viewing

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.

Who We Are

We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to promoting the responsible use and development of remote viewing. We are an independently formed, non-profit member organization of scientists, remote viewing professionals, students, and other interested persons. We offer free information to inform and educate the public about the nature and uses of remote viewing and additional benefits to our supporting membership.
