Welcome to Focal Point


FOCAL POINT is not the average remote viewing discussion group. It is available to IRVA members who wish to actively remote view new targets, post their sessions to the group, and participate in group discussions about those results. A new target will be posted each month, and the feedback a couple of weeks later. Members can upload their sessions and discuss the results. Targets will not involve any disturbing or controversial subject matter, and are appropriate for all skill levels. All remote viewing methodologies and skill levels are welcome.

FOCAL POINT is moderated and administered by IRVA director, Jon Noble. Since experiencing the remote viewing for himself in a week-long conference with pioneers Russell Targ and Stephan Schwartz in 2010, Jon has made it a mission to promote the practice and introduce it to others. Instructed by many of remote viewing luminaries as well as Russell Targ and Stephan Schwartz, including Skip Atwater, and Paul H. Smith, Jon is an advocate of all forms of RV. Jon runs Focal Point, IRVA’s online target practice program, and publishes practice targets on the website related to his book, Natural Remote Viewing – A practical guide to the mental martial art of self-discovery. Originally from South East England, Jon is based in Brooklyn, NYC.



If you have an interesting target in mind you can submit it for review to be used as a FOCAL POINT target.

Make sure it’s at least one of the following: interesting, colourful, fun, unusual, or has a sense of excitement or motion. Nothing too complex (e.g., a mass of items with no single point of interest) or boring (e.g., a field of wheat). Also, please nothing controversial or disturbing!

Please provide either a single pdf containing all the information, or a jpeg. If the target is a particular location or item of note please provide some detail about it, such as a link to Wikipedia.

Please ensure images do not have any license restrictions, so they are either public domain or Creative Commons license. Wikipedia is a good source of such images.
