James DeMeo Seminars for Spring and Summer 2017

Two Events and Locations are offered:


1. GERMANY: Detmold: Sunday 19 March 2017
10:00 to 17:30 hours (10 AM to 5:30 PM)
Lunch from 13:00 to 14:30 Hours.

James DeMeo's 45 Years of Scientific Investigations and Experimental Confirmations of Wilhelm Reich's Sex-Economic and Orgone Biophysical Discoveries, with new findings. Presented by James DeMeo, PhD (English language, no translator)

This one-day informal seminar is being organized in Detmold, Germany, on March 19th, Sunday, 2017. Dr. DeMeo will present his various experimental works investigating, verifying and in some cases providing stronger foundations for the research findings of Dr. Wilhelm Reich. It will be a shortened version of the same seminar he will give later in August, in Ashland, Oregon, USA, as described below.

This seminar will be an excellent opportunity for students of Reich and orgonomy, young and old, to meet with one of the primary research scientists investigating this subject, with 45+ years of experimental and sociological-historical work in orgonomy. Dr. DeMeo is a former university professor with a professional background in interdisciplinary natural science.

DeMeo's lectures are accompanied by colorful PowerPoint presentations showing the actual work and places under discussion. Some video materials may be presented. Open periods for questions and discussions will be provided.

Seminar Location and Times: The location will be in a conference room at one of Detmold's hotels, a final decision has not yet been reached as to which one. Updated info will be posted as soon as possible. Times for the seminar are posted above.

About Detmold... a smaller picturesque old-style German town in the NW part of Germany, with train connections close to Munster, Bielefeld and Hannover. It is a favored tourist destination with many hotels and restaurants, in the middle of a heavily-forested clean-air region.

LODGING IN AND TRANSPORTATION TO DETMOLD. Please do an internet search on "Hotels in Detmold, Germany" where you will find around 20 different entries. Since Detmold is something of a tourist town, there are many offerings, and in mid-March it is still out of the tourist season, so you should be able to find a nice place at a good rate. Consult the German rail website for travel info - select language from top menu: https://www.bahn.com/en/

Registration and Payment

Price for attendance will be 90 Euro, discounted 1/3rd for full-time students or low-income. Payment by PayPal, use the buttons below. It will accept most every credit card even if you do not have a PayPal account:

Full Registration, 90 Euro, Detmold Seminar

Student/Low-Income Registration, 60 Euro, Detmold Seminar

Payment also can be made in cash Euros at the door, but you must pre-register or risk not having a seat.

If you are interested to attend this event, please make your payment above, and send an email to Dr. DeMeo as soon as possible, to obtain further information and other details. A special email list is being developed for this event.

2. USA, Ashland Oregon. Saturday-Sunday, 12-13 August 2017
10:00 AM to 5:30 PM
Lunch from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM

James DeMeo's 45 Years of Scientific Investigations and Experimental Confirmations of Wilhelm Reich's Sex-Economic and Orgone Biophysical Discoveries, with new findings. Presented by James DeMeo, PhD

This two-day seminar is being organized at the Orgone Biophysical Research Laboratory in Ashland, Oregon, USA for the second weekend in August. Dr. DeMeo will present his various experimental works investigating, verifying and providing stronger foundations for the research findings of Dr. Wilhelm Reich. DeMeo was the first mainstream university student to have successfully earned a Master's and later PhD degree in the open study and investigation of Wilhelm Reich's findings. He later carried that spirit of open investigation over ten years as university professor, and later founded his own non-profit institute, the Orgone Biophysical Research Lab, in Ashland, Oregon, where his research continues.

Seminar Topics will include (time-permitting):

* Early University Studies, how to openly study Reich and survive within the mainstream of the Academy.
* Early verification field study of Reich's Cloudbuster.
* Saharasia: the largest global cross-cultural evaluation of human behavior, family life and sexuality, ever undertaken, verifying Reich's sex-economic theory on the origins of violence.
* Discovery of the extreme and coherent Saharasian Desert Belt, with the correlated presence of high-violence cultures.
* Identification of an early peaceful period in pre-history, prior to the Saharasian drying-epoch, solving the riddles of the origins of armoring and origins of violence questions.
* The invasion of trauma-inducing social institutions into once-peaceful cultures, and the necessity to protect infants and children from their harm.
* Unsettling predictions from 6000 years of history, of social chaos and violence consequent to mass-immigration from Saharasian regions.
* Replications of Reich's and Burr's bioelectric measurements, the pulsations of life.
* Detection of electromagnetic oranur effects.
* Replications of Reich's bion experiments.
* Building orgone accumulators and blankets, the best and worst materials.
* Experimental verification of Reich's To-T experiment, in a 7-year "bulletproof" investigation using computer monitoring and electronic thermistors, a violation of the Second Law of Thermodynamics.
* Experimental verification of Reich's electroscopical discharge experiment with optically-timed electroscopes.
* Experimental verification of Reich's findings on orgone-charged Geiger-counter anomalies and VACOR tube lumination.
* New discovery on orgone-charged water: The evaporation-suppression effect.
* New discovery of Far-UV absorption and Near-UV/blue fluorescence signatures in orgone-charged waters.
* Practical application of Reich's cloudbuster for ending droughts and greening deserts. Projects in the USA, and in Israel and Namibia.
* A five-year desert-greening project in Eritrea, Africa, with "unbelievable" results.
* Current distortions of Reich's orgonomic findings, by "skeptics", by lay "orgonite/chemtrail" enthusiasts, and within "orgonomic groups"
* The necessity to strongly confront the lying "skeptics" and slanderers.
* The necessity to maintain a strongly empirical and scientific approach to orgonomy.
* DeMeo's publications: books, articles in orgonomic journals, and in mainstream science venues.
* Current research underway.

Where possible, some demonstrations of apparatus will be made. Students will get to experience the orgone accumulator darkroom, and have a trip to the OBRL on-site Astronomical Observatory (about four stories up). DeMeo's lectures are accompanied by colorful PowerPoint presentations showing the actual work and places under discussion. Some video materials may be presented. Open periods for questions and discussions, after each presentation, will also be provided.

This seminar will be an excellent opportunity for students of Reich and orgonomy, young and old, to meet with one of the primary research scientists investigating this subject, with 45+ years of experimental and sociological-historical work in orgonomy. Dr. DeMeo is a former university professor with a professional background in interdisciplinary social, natural and physical science.

Seminar Location and Other Events, with Times:

The main Seminar will be held on the weekend of 12-13 August, most probably at lecture hall rented at nearby Southern Oregon University, in downtown Ashland. However, this may be shifted to the OBRL facility east of Ashland in the mountains. A decision on this will come sometime in late March or early April. Times for the major seminars are given above.

An informal optional social gathering will be held at the OBRL Center on the evening before the Seminar, on Friday, 11 August, from 7:00 to 8:30 PM.

We also offer seminar participants to a late evening visit to the OBRL Darkroom and Observatory, weather permitting, from 9:00 PM until around 11:00 PM, on both Saturday and Sunday, after dinnertime.

An optional field trip to Crater Lake National Park -- with the bluest water in the world (see photos below) -- will also be organized on Monday, after the last day of the seminar. We do not furnish rides or any other facilities or support for this optional event, everyone must provide their own transportation or share a ride with others. That is generally organized late in the Seminar on Sunday, with everyone rallying at OBRL for a morning departure around 9:00 AM. This field trip takes most of the day, and we generally drive through the forested mountain back-roads, a 2 hour drive, to get to Crater Lake. Once there, we stop at the main pavilion for some hours, where everyone can view the lake, visit the Park Museum and gift shops, and have a lunch at either the casual diner or the sit-down restaurant at the Crater Lake Lodge. We then drive around the Lake, stopping at different vantage points for viewing and photos. Dr. DeMeo will be on this field trip to point out orgonotic phenomenon in nature. Later in the day we drive back to OBRL, or other drive off to other destinations as they wish. This seminar can be integrated into a wonderful tourist experience of the clean fresh air and natural old-growth forests of the region, or trips down to the coastal areas with small fishing villages. Plan ahead.

About Ashland... a smaller tourist town in the Pacific NW USA, with international airport connections through nearby Medford Oregon. Ashland has many hotels and restaurants, located in the middle of a heavily-forested region known for its clean air and water, and beautiful natural environment. The OBRL facility is located above 4000' elevation in a wild mature pine-cedar forest region, frequented by curious deer and other wildlife.

Lodging and Travel Information for Ashland:

Please consult the following website:
http://www.orgonelab.org/lodging.htm
Please wait until March or April before making any room reservations, as we are still undecided if the major seminar lectures will be held at the nearby Southern Oregon University in Ashland, or at the OBRL facility in the mountains outside of Ashland. That may affect your decision about where to stay.

Registration and Payment

Price for attendance will be $190 USD, discounted by approximately 1/3rd for full-time students or low-income. Payment by PayPal, use the buttons below. It will accept most every credit card even if you do not have a PayPal account:

Full Registration, $190, Ashland Seminar

Student/Low-Income Registration, $125, Ashland Seminar

Payment also can be made in cash US Dollars at the door, but you must pre-register or risk not having a seat. We no longer have an on-site credit card processing machine.
