  • Alex Tanous - Friend, Healer, Artist, Musician, Professor & Psychic a talk by Jennifer Allen

    Many people would like to know the Real Alex Tanous. Who was he? What was he like? Could he actually be seen in two places at once? Could he throw light? Did he really heal people? Was he approachable? Was he all that people said he was? /font>
    Jennifer Allen is coming to RRC to talk about Alex Tanous. During her years in Portsmouth, NH, Alex was her longtime friend and became Godfather to each of her four daughters. For years, she attended his parapsychology classes University of Southern Maine, where Alex taught students that they all had the ability to do what he did, if they would only open their minds and spirit to join in.

    She will open with personal stories about his many abilities, including:
    • To find missing people.
    • To send healing energy to cancer patients who were far away and who went into remission within three days after he did so.
    • To Bilocate.
    • To see Auras.
    • To throw light from his eyes.
    • To search for UFO’s with Betty Hill, written up in her last book.
    • To talk with Jesus, St. Anne, Isaac Newton, incredible people throughout history.
    • Alex’s experiments in the Bermuda Triangle.

    There will be plenty of time for questions and answers throughout the afternoon.

    Jennifer AllenJennifer Allen’s list of accomplishments is long and wide in the business community. She is currently President and Co-Founder of One Unlimited, Inc., dba/ Skin Wisdom Products.  Her life philosophy shines through in the corporate motto: We are ONE, Unlimited in our potential.

    While achieving these business successes, she has happily raised four daughters, two of whom are god-daughters to Alex Tanous and will attend this session. Utilizing her natural high energy, Jennifer has also studied and led explorations into personal spirituality throughout her life. Her approach to spirituality is quite practical and leads to direct impact in the lives of those who listen to her counsel.

    Jennifer and her daughters bring personal knowledge of Alex Tanous, knowledge that affects their lives every day. RRC is extremely pleased to have them all here to share their stories, along with telling us about the Life of Alex Tanous.

  • Energetic Healing Perspectives From Three Continents

    - facilitated by Ben Perry

  • Intuitive Diagnosis

    presented by Dr. Larry Burk.  (94 mb, MP3 Audio file).

  • Intuitive Diagnosis Panel Discussion: Scientific and clinical intuitive medical diagnosis, Part 1

    Please consider contributing to the Rhine to enable us to bring you more presentations of this type - live and over the internet via a simulcast.

    Larry Burk, MD, Moderator, Radiologist, Intuitive Diagnosis Researcher
    Leon Curry, MD, Internist, Intuitive Diagnosis Researcher
    Mary Jo Bulbrook, RN, EdD, Intuitive Healer
    Brent Atwater, Intuitive Healer


    This panel discussion will review historical examples of intuitive medical diagnosis, summarize the scientific literature to date and provide case histories from physicians and intuitives. The ability to diagnose illness without physical examination, history or medical technology has been frequently reported, but there has been little quality research to validate this diagnostic approach. Discussion on this panel will be useful in providing detailed information about the process and in planning future research projects.

    Historically, Edgar Cayce was the most famous intuitive diagnostician with records of thousands of cases on file at the Association for Research and Enlightenment. He would be given the name and location of a patient in a trance state and claimed to access the Akashic Records to obtain medical information. Intuitive diagnosis is discussed in many other historical contexts, but Dr. John Elliotson was the first physician to attempt to research the phenomenon in 1838 by reporting his experiences with the Okey sisters. Since that time, 7 formal research studies have been performed, only 3 of which were published in the medical literature. The studies are of variable quality and design. The largest body of research to date has been by neurosurgeon Norm Shealy, MD, PhD, founder of the American Board of Scientific Medical Intuition, but it has only been published in book form without peer review. Larry Burk, MD, will report on his case studies with Caroline Myss, PhD, and other intuitives, as well as a Rhine pilot project with 7 intuitives from North Carolina. Leon Curry, MD, will report on his experience evaluating the intuitive diagnostic abilities of Greta Alexander.

  • Let Magic Happen: Adventures in Healing with a Holistic Radiologist

    Dr. Burk's new book, Let Magic Happen takes us on a journey from the early development of the MRI and 3DCT, through the founding of the Duke Center for Integrative Medicine and on to scientific medical intuition, alternative cancer diagnosis and treatment and guidance through dreams and shamanic journeying. Every step of the way is guided by a variety of mind-body-spirit, self-healing methods and a how-to-do-it summary of many popular techniques.

  • Medicine and Healing Panel Discussion: Where We Are and Where We Might Go, Part 1

    Steve Baumann, PhD, Biomedical Engineer, Healing Researcher
    Josiane D'Hoop, Healer, Hypnotherapist, and Teacher
    Jerry Pittman, MD, Medical Practitioner
    Jane Katra, MPH, Healer, Author

    We intend to compare and contrast the clinical aspects of the practice of medicine and the practice of energetic healing as they are now, and suggest how they might work better together to serve those who seek healing.

    At present the fields of energetic healing and allopathic medicine are practiced with separate goals and intentions, using terms which vary in meaning between the fields, using different paradigms to describe what we are doing.

    Before we can begin a scientific study of healing or medicine that makes sense to both fields, we must arrange to be on the "same sheet of music" and thereby clarify our intentions.

  • Spiritual Beings Having a Human Experience: Intangible Healing Capacities and Modern Cardiology Practice

    Mitch Krucoffis a long time friend of the Rhine Research Center, has served on our Board of Directors, and has helped RRC in innumerable other ways over several years. His presentations offer a rare blend of career commitment to cardiovascular medicine coupled with extensive research into the impact of "intangibles" within medical settings. These presentations never fail to delight RRC audiences. You will be inspired to hear of the extensive studies which with he continues to be actively involved which demonstrate the possibilities of using music, imagery, touch and prayer as adjuncts to high tech cardiac care. The story of these studies is a good one and it continues to evolve. You may take away from this evening a renewed and deeper sense of excitement for the healing power generated when patients, doctors and other practitioners align their energies and efforts. Your sense of excitement will be supported by solid scientific observations. Do come!!

  • The Sacred Promise: Science and the Role of Spirit in Healing

    The belief in a greater spiritual reality and its healing role in our individual and collective lives has been held by vast numbers of people and religions throughout recorded history. On the other hand, conventional Western science traditionally has assumed the opposite; that Spirit does not exist, and that the explanations for healings observed in the context of spiritual practices must be the result of spontaneous healing or of mind-body/belief/placebo effects.

    But now Gary E. Schwartz using conventional methods of science has collected a wealth of new evidence that directly addresses these issues. He will present provocative new material from his forthcoming book The Sacred Promise that will summarize some spontaneous experiences from his own personal life, some exploratory investigations where the scientists test new procedures using themselves as the subjects, and finally some formal laboratory experiments that follow university approved protocols as appropriate.

    This material and its implications will be of special interest to the scientists and lay public who regularly attend Rhine activities. And there will be ample time for audience interaction and reaction.


    Gary E. Schwartz, Ph.D., is a professor of psychology, medicine, neurology, psychiatry, and surgery at the University of Arizona and director of its Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health. After receiving his doctorate from Harvard University, he served as professor of psychology and psychiatry at Yale University, director of the Yale Psychophysiology Center, and co-director of the Yale Behavioral Medicine Clinic, before moving to Arizona in 1988. He has published more than four hundred scientific papers and co-edited eleven academic books. He is the author of The Afterlife Experiments, The G.O.D. Experiments, The Energy Healing Experiments, and the forthcoming The Sacred Promise
