Please tell your Meetup friends about us!

The Short Version: The world-famous Rhine Research Center hosts lectures, workshops, classes and conferences with many of the world's foremost authorities on paranormal and parapsychology topics. Join, learn and experience with us!

The Long Version: The Rhine Research Center explores the frontiers of consciousness and exceptional human experiences in the context of unusual and unexplained phenomena. The Rhine’s mission is to advance the science of parapsychology, to provide education and resources for the public, and to foster a community for individuals with personal and professional interest in PSI.*

Named after its founder J. B. Rhine (http://www.facebook.com/pages/w/137925642895603), The Rhine "aims to improve the human condition by creating a scientific understanding of those abilities and sensitivities that appear to transcend the ordinary limits of space and time." It is the successor to the Parapsychology Laboratory at Duke University in Durham, NC, and Rhine's later laboratory, the Foundation for Research on the Nature of Man (FRNM).

*PSI is defined as anomalous processes of information or energy transfer, such as telepathy or psychokinesis, that are currently unexplained in terms of known physical or biological mechanisms.

NB: As the topics of our presentations vary widely, check regularly through upcoming meetups for those that suit your particular interests. When seating is limited, that event's description will say so, and include a link directly to that part of the Rhine's website where you can purchase tickets by Paypal to guarantee yourself a spot. ALL Friday lectures are SIMULCAST and can be viewed over the Internet.

PEG (Psychic Experience(r)s Group: Open Discussion

Rhine Research Center

Hosted by Pamela St John, PEG monthly meetings (first Tuesday of the month) are dedicated to the discussion of psi (psychic) and consciousness through personal experiences. We maintain a policy of honesty, privacy, and sharing without judgment. Shared experiences touch on telepathy, healing, precognition, extended senses, psychokinesis, remote viewing, dreams, haunting, reincarnation, near death experiences, out-of-body experiences, and other unsolved mysteries. As personal stories flow, ideas and inspiration begin to flow for developing our extended psi and for finding creative ways to be of greater service in the larger community. Admission $10 / Rhine Members: $5/ Sustaining members & Scientific Supporters: Free
