A 5-day Guided
Independent Study Program in General Orgonomy is being organized,
meeting each day and led by James DeMeo, Ph.D., Director of OBRL.
Lecture/discussions and demonstrations of apparatus will occur in the
mornings, with independent student projects in the afternoons, using
the facilities of the lab.
Topics to be
covered will include (as humanly possible, to the extent that time
* Reich's sex-economic findings and DeMeo's findings on
* Bioelectrical experiments and environmental bio-fields.
* Microscopical investigations of bions and bion preparations.
* Orgone accumulator construction principles.
* Orgone accumulator seed-sprouting experiments.
* Orgone accumulator physical measurements and demonstrations: To-T,
Electroscopical phenomena, water evaporation and surface tension.
* Observations in the Orgone Energy Accumulator Darkroom (room-sized
accumulator) and of atmospheric orgone energy phenomena.
* Oranur physics and chemistry: Direct work with a cloud-chamber,
studying background and low-level radioactive minerals.
* Orgone-charged vacuum tubes (VACOR) and orgone energy
* The Orgone Energy Field Meter, and similar devices.
* The Orgone Energy Motor: What is known, and unknown.
* Astronomical and orgone-energy observations in the OBRL Greensprings
Observatory, with 16" Meade Richey-Cretein telescope, 3"
aperture "battleship binoculars", and Solarscope.
* Field Trip on July 12th to Crater Lake National Park (weather
* First Days: Introduction to the Greensprings Center and OBRL
facilities. Discussion of Reich's sex-economic principles, and DeMeo's
findings on Saharasia as the logical outcome of applying
sex-economic principles to existing anthropological cross-cultural
data. Discussion of Reich's findings on emotions and bioelectricity,
with demonstrations of apparatus for measurment of skin potentials,
and also tree and atmospheric potentials following the methods of
Harold S. Burr. Start of 1st series of orgone accumulator experiments,
to demonstrate growth enhancement from seed-charging and other
Days: Principles of bionous disintegration, biological/atmospheric
orgone energy, and the orgone energy accumulator. Discussions and
demonstrations of Reich's findings on bions (orgone energy vesicles)
and biogenesis with study at the microscope of radiating bions from
sands. Use of natural sunlight in the microscope, Ott's discoveries on
light frequency. Discussion and demonstrations of Reich's findings on
orgone energy accumulators and orgone physics, the orgone energy field
meter. Observations in Orgone Energy Darkroom (a room-sized
* Last Days:
Discussion and demonstrations of Reich's findings on oranur physics
and chemistry, and principles of atmospheric-energetic functioning.
Observations of radiation-tracks with a cloud-chamber. Start of 3rd
series of orgone accumulator experiments; continuation of student
projects. Open discussion periods, wrap up and analysis of results
from orgone accumulator experiments, and student projects. Depending
upon the weather, 12 July will be devoted to a field trip for
observation of orgone energy phenomenon in nature, to nearby Crater
Lake Park, one of the most beautiful and alive places in North
limited to 10 students maximum, at a cost of $600 for the full 5-day
series. Students may elect to attend only a part of the Independent
Study Program at a cost of $150 per day. It is recommended that
students be familiar with Wilhelm Reich's original writings, and the
writings of James DeMeo, to give a better foundation.

PLEASE REGISTER AND MAKE YOUR OVERNIGHT ACCOMMODATIONS AS EARLY AS
POSSIBLE, AS OUR EVENTS TEND TO FILL UP QUICKLY, AND SPACE IS LIMITED!
SPACE IS LIMITED IN THIS SEMINAR TO APPROXIMATELY 10
There are local
restaurants, but they are slow-service and unable to accommodate our
seminar guests -- for that reason, and due to time constraints, we
strongly recommend to bring your own lunch - sandwiches, fruits, or
whatever you like. Tables and chairs are available for outdoor eating
and a coffee/tea service will be provided. However, you will be
responsible for your own lunch.
For those persons
who arrive early, there will be a Friday afternnon Open House and
Social Gathering, from 5-7 PM (July 6th) plus an evening
lecture/discussion (7-9 PM) on a topic to be announced. Weather
Permitting, the OBRL Orgone Energy Accumulator Darkroom will be
open for viewing to seminar participants, during off-times. Likewise,
the Greensprings Astronomical Observatory may be opened for
evening celestial events. The region surrounding the OBRL Greensprings
Center is also excellent for outdoor picnics and hiking, with Crater
Lake National Park only 3-hrs drive to the north, with the bluest
water in the world, and a favorite visiting place for our seminar
