Weekend Workshops on the Orgone Energy Accumulator

20-21 July 1996:

The Orgone Energy Accumulator: History, Construction and Use

Covering the following general topics:
* Wilhelm Reich's Discovery of the Orgone Energy.
* Orgone Biophysics; laboratory demonstration of orgone energy experiments.
* Discovery of  life energy by scientists other than Reich.
* Hands-on construction of orgone blankets and accumulators.
* Open discussion of best materials and effective use of accumulating devices.
* Discussion of medical use of orgone accumulator overseas,
  in Germany and other nations.

Instructors:  James DeMeo, Ph.D. and Theirrie Cook, B.A.

Demonstrations, Slides, Handouts, etc.

In the 1950s, Dr. Wilhelm Reich published a series of books and research 
journals documenting the existence of a unique biological energy (called 
*orgone*), and the construction of a very simple, inexpensive and passive 
device by which this same energy could be accumulated from the atmosphere. The 
orgone accumulator was observed to increase the growth of plants and the 
healing of tissues, while subjective reactions among test subjects indicated 
an increased vigor and resistance to disease (immunity). Microscopic 
observation of blood indicated serological changes towards more alive and 
healthy conditions among seriously ill persons who regularly sat in the 
accumulator.  Reich's milestone papers on this discovery were published and 
verified by his associates, but the discovery was nearly lost to the world 
when the McCarthy-era Food and Drug Administration obtained a court order, 
banning from interstate transportation and actually *burning* copies of all 
books which contained the forbidden word "orgone". Book-burning actually was 
carried out by FDA agents in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Fortunately, 
copies of the original works survived, and many have been republished.  Many 
new studies have been undertaken and published, including peer-reviewed, 
double-blind and controlled studies. In Germany, the orgone accumulator is 
openly used by physicians for experimental cancer therapy, and many anecedotal 
reports exist of anomalous spontaneous remissions and other kinds of healing 
phenomenon following orgone accumulator therapy.  This workshop on the Orgone 
Energy Accumulator will be led by James DeMeo, Ph.D., author of the popular 
"Orgone Accumulator Handbook", and by Theirrie Cook, founder and former owner 
of the "Orgonics" company.  Participants will get a complete overview of the 
history and theoretical background of Reich's discovery of the orgone energy, 
as well as practical, hands-on experience in the construction and experimental 
use of several different types of accumulators.  Some laboratory 
demonstrations of orgone energy phenomenon will also be given.
