      • Theories of Psi: An Introduction (8 weeks)
        with John G. Kruth, MS

         7:00pm - 8:30pm Eastern Time
        Tuition: $225 (Tuition Reduced)

        This course qualifies for some certificate programs.


        BrainColorsMany people claim that there is no theoretical foundation for psi phenomena, but over a century of research has involved many theories of psi activity and the best way to demonstrate psi phenomena. From theories of animal magnetism to quantum physics to astrology, researchers have been testing the validity of theories that may contribute to the events that so many people experience in their lives.

        This course is an introduction to the theories that guide psi researchers in their quest to better understand how psi works. It includes practical theories like the experimenter effect and the decline effect, psychological theories like the sheep-goat effect, and more recent theories like Decision Augmentation Theory, First Sight Theory, and even an exploration of similarities between psi phenomena and quantum physics.

        Students should have a foundation in parapsychology with a focus on reviewing research articles. It is an introduction to the theories of psi, but does not include an introduction to parapsychology.

          7:00pm - 9:00pm Eastern Time
          Tuition: $99 (Tuition Reduced!)

          RemoteViewingExperienceThere is evidence that humans can perceive the future, even before any of us get there. But how can we use that knowledge in practical ways? This online course and workshop introduces concepts necessary to understand what is going on with practical precognition, such as the nature of time; what we can actually “know” about the future; the role played by human intention; whether the future can be “changed”; and so on.

          We’ll discuss what some of the limitations are for precognition and how to deal with them as far as it is possible. Methods–both natural and learned–that allow us to exploit the process to gain concrete advantage of such advanced knowledge will be dissected and explored.

          Other topics for discussion include requirements for precognition to be useful; providing actionable information; documentation and journaling requirements; etc. And we will actually attempt some practical precognition exercises.

We will review critical artworks going back to ancient times and we will wander across the Art history timeline to present for illumination. Who were these renegade artists who saw the creative potential of expressing what Psi meant to them, and who tried to capture the miraculous and mystical through various art media and across various cultural contexts? We will explore how artists have used art to convey the extraordinary, the unimaginable...

          As we critically examine various art and art forms, the biography of a few selected artists will be placed within the framework of their time and their own personal and societal/cultural expressions. This journey shall enable the course participants to gain a deeper appreciation of a more obscure artistic legacy that has been given to us over the millennia, and to develop the tools to understand Art's more profound impact on our understanding of Psi phenomena and, equally, the importance of the creative muses in the exploration of consciousness.
