Our speakers have undertaken Freedom-of-Information-Act searches of government documents, made interviews with key personalities, and engaged in field research and scholarly investigation in both the USA and overseas. They will discuss these issues head-on, showing Reich was neither off-the-mark nor delusional, as some have claimed. Speakers: * Peter Robbins, B.F.A. on: 1. Wilhelm Reich and the UFO Question -and- 2. "Left at East Gate": Military Interest in Cloudbusting (CORE) * Jim Martin, B.A. on: 1. The Secret Life of Mildred Brady & the FDA Persecution -and- 2. Reich's "Little Orgonon", the US Air Force & Government Weather Modification Experiments in Arizona. * James DeMeo, Ph.D. on: 1. Verification of Reich's 'Oranur' from Modern Radiation Biophysics -and- 2. Verification of Desert-Greening from Cloudbusting Expeditions to Arizona and Africa. Lectures, slides, videos, handouts, round-table discussion More information posted at: http://id.mind.net/community/orgonelab/d_semin1.htm ********** Seminar #2: The Orgone Energy Accumulator: History, Construction & Experimental Use 16-17 August 1997: Saturday & Sunday; 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM Faculty: James DeMeo, Ph.D. & Theirrie Cook, B.A. Covering the following general topics: * Wilhelm Reich's Discovery of the Orgone Energy. * Orgone Biophysics; laboratory demonstration of orgone energy experiments. * Effects of local weather upon accumulator functioning. * Medical use of the orgone accumulator in clinics and hospitals overseas, in Germany and other nations. * Discovery of life energy by scientists other than Reich. * Hands-on construction of orgone energy blankets and box-type accumulators; review of materials. * Problems with your energetic environment: Dor and Oranur: nuclear power plants, power lines, television, computers, microwave ovens, fluorescent lights, etc. With demonstrations, lectures, slides, handouts.

Who was this man, Wilhelm Reich, whose work continues to stir controversy and great interest internationally, some 40 years after his death? Former student and close associate of Sigmund Freud, he is today virtually expunged from the "official history" of psychoanalysis. His books are translated into dozens of languages, read around the world, but censored from nearly every academic curricula. Why is Reich so rarely mentioned? What was Reich doing, what did he discover that continues to excite, interest, and challenge people? This seminar will provide a general discussion and appreciation of Reich's findings, but will focus on Reich the man, with personal memories from two -- Morton Herskowitz and Bernard Grad -- who worked with him and knew him well. Also, the implications of Reich's work for the personal lives of ordinary people will be discussed. The question will be raised: What can be done by average people to move the world towards a healthier and happier condition? * Morton Herskowitz, D.O. on: Remembering Reich * Bernard Grad, Ph.D. on: Remembering Reich (Dr. Grad's appearance is not yet confirmed) * James DeMeo, Ph.D. on: Overview and Summary of Wilhelm Reich's Discoveries: Function of the Orgasm to Contact With Space. * Lou Hochberg, M.S.W. on: Looking at Children * Special Video-Interview Presentations by others who knew and worked with Reich: Eva Reich, M.D., Michael Rothenberg, M.D. and Myron Sharaf, Ph.D. Lectures, slides, videos, round-table discussion.

Call for details. With demonstrations of microscopical techniques, lectures, videos, slides, handouts.
