Russell Targ's Wonderful Presentation on Remote Viewing

Russell Targ's recent weekend visit to the RRC was absolutely fantastic and all you'd expect it to be. We had a huge crowd out for the Friday night event where Mr. Targ gave us a wonderful presentation on Remote Viewing and his history in the development of this skill. It was great to hear anecdotes of his experiences in the SRI and military programs, and how he interacted with some of the more famous viewers. He shared some of his insights into the nature of the phenomenon, and took lots of questions from the audience there. He showed a great sense of humor and a love for the science he talked with us about, which made his talk all the more enjoyable. Mr. Targ emphasized the way Buddhist thought sheds light on the PSI events we witness, and how important the reality of our connectedness is to our understanding Remote Viewing.

Then on Saturday Russell talked with us about the dynamics of Remote Viewing, and led us in a number of practices over the course of the day. Those of us attending received instruction from a person instrumental in the very creation of the Remote Viewing field. The different targets selected, and the varied procedures used highlighted the important considerations in any remote viewing session. We discussed the process and shared feedback on our experiences. As always in these group sessions, the shared knowledge of fellow viewers was a real boon to our learning. Russell added his own insights, gleaned from decades of experience in working with the best remote viewers in the world.

The members of the remote viewing group that meets monthly at the RRC, the staff on hand, and all the visitors from across the country in attendance shared a wonderful few days of Remote Viewing education. Mr. Targ's scientific knowledge and practical Remote Viewing skills, as well as his joy in exploring the non-local connections we share added up to a marvelous experience. Hopefully we will have him back for another visit in the future, and the Rhine Center is very grateful for the learning event he provided us. We are likewise looking forward to other Remote Viewing events in the near future, such as the PSI games on Friday, and visits from Joe McMoneagle and Dale E. Graff later this summer. Please contact the RRC soon if you are interested in these events.

Rhine Center to Screen the First East Coast Showing of Something Unknown!

Friday, May 7, 2010
7:30 to 9 pm
at the Stedman Auditorium, Durham, NC

"Something Unknown is Doing We Don't Know What" is a moving story of a woman's spiritual journey to uncover the science of psychic experience. Under the guidance of Dr. Charles Tart, her journey explores and answers many questions about psychic and paranormal phenomena. Dutch filmmaker Renee Scheltema goes straight to the scientists, psychics and healers for straight answers about psychic and paranormal experiences:
Can we predict the future?
Can our thoughts and intentions affect the physical world?

Can we be spontaneously healed?

Are we “mysteriously” connected?

The film documents evidence that the mind can affect matter. It demystifies psychic and paranormal experiences and presents rare glimpses into laboratory experiments, spiritual healings and declassified government archives. “Something Unknown” reveals scientific evidence that consciousness can influence the physical world. It uncovers decades of pioneering research conducted by governments, universities, and independent scientists to explore quantum physics principles that indicate humans are interconnected and have extended capacities of consciousness that transcend time and space.

The Aftermath of Russell Targ Weekend

Dear Volunteers & Friends,

Thank you so much for your support and help to make this past weekend program with Russell Targ such a huge success. With about 100 folks on Friday evening and about 40 attendees for Saturday's all-day workshop, our volunteer operation was put to the test. . But our speaker Russell seemed extremely pleased with his first visit here with us, felt very good about his response from the audience and thanked me for the very nice party in his honor last evening. The fact that he got a standing ovation from the workshop participants last evening is a tribute to the whole operation as well as to Russell's special inspiring way of facilitating remote viewing and sharing his knowledge, wisdom and Buddhist insights with us.

Once again I thank you for your help in making this one of the most successful programs that we have sponsored at the Rhine Center in my memory.

Dear Sally,
What a magnificent weekend! Russell Targ selflessly brought his beautiful, powerful, and soothing energy to the Rhine and I know everyone was fascinated by his presentation, attracted to his persona, and attached to his colorful humor. And as for my participation in the workshop, I had great success with the experiments. He is the first teacher in 20 years who was able to dial me into his particular method of clairvoyance in a seamless and powerful manner. What a treat! My RV partner and I were thrilled!

As I watched you two together, I witnessed a bright, charged aura of intellectual/spiritual greatness -- two giants of the psi world. I'm glad you're pleased with the outcome. The standing ovation at the end of the day was not just for Russell -- it was for you as well.
--J. Roy

We'd love to hear comments from others who attended the workshop.
