IRVA Conference Jim Channon Commemorative 3-DVD Set


An army of warrior monks, spreading not war, but peaceful conflict resolution–that was the possible future of a remade American army, as conceived of by Jim Channon. Jim was a retired army lieutenant colonel, a veteran of two combat tours in Vietnam, and a futurist and social prophet. His vision extended far beyond the army and military of the future. He was described as a “corporate shaman,” and advocated for personal transformation on a world scale. Jim suddenly and unexpectedly passed away on September 10, 2017. Now, to commemorate his passing and to help preserve the thoughts and ideas he shared with us at our remote viewing conferences, you can now own the full Jim Channon set, comprising two presentations and a panel in which he shared. Collected on three DVDs, this set is steeply discounted from the normal retail price so as many people as possible can benefit from Jim’s profound wisdom. As he would have wanted, all proceeds go to support the mission of the International Remote Viewing Association, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization promoting remote viewing as a transcendent consciousness discipline in which all can partake.
