After a brief coffee break, the conference began in full with a presentation by Nancy C. Jeane.  Fittingly, Jeane's presentation was meant as a kind of primer on the world of Remote Viewing.  To start, Jeane, a former schoolteacher and current Remote Viewing instructor who learned her trade under RV luminaries like David Morehouse, Lyn Buchanan, and Joe McMoneagle, broke down the five different kinds of remote viewing, which I do not completely comprehend but will reproduce here from information in her handout:

  •  ERV, or Extended Remote Viewing, which typically involves the viewer themselves, and a monitor who guides the viewer through what they’re experiencing and helps record results

  • CRV, or Controlled Remote Viewing, the goal of which is to facilitate the transfer of information from the viewer’s subconscious across the threshold of awareness into waking consciousness.  From there it is “decoded” info a form the viewer can express.  This is a more structured format than ERV, with an established set of protocols. 
    • The handout provides six stages of CRV, which are as follows:
      1. Major Gestalt (determining whether you're looking at land, water, a structure, etc.)
      2. Sensory Data (taste, touch, smell, etc.)
      3. Dimensional characteristics (depth, high, textures - sketching usually begins here)
      4. Qualitative/intangible data (feelings about the target)
      5. Interrogative (in which you work with the prior data to produce refined results)
      6. Modeling (drawing the data together into a cohesive picture)

  • HVRG, or Hawaiian Remote Viewing Guild.  Co-founded by retired US Army Sergeant First-Class Glenn B. Wheaton, integrate Neuro-Linguistic Programming with the US Army intelligence protocol SALUTE (size, activity, location, unit, time, equipment, remarks).  While structured, HVRG allows the viewer to transition from an alert mental Beta wave collection state to a more relaxed, experiential Theta wave extended remote viewing state.

  • GRV, or Generic Remote Viewing.  No succinct description of this method is given but Joe McMoneagle, a remote viewer who had been with the various iterations of project StarGate from 1978 to its closing in 1995, is described as falling into this category.  The handout also describes McMoneagle as "one of a kind...one of the best remote viewers", so presumably being referred to as generic isn't all bad news.  This method of RV was apparently used for some of the government program's first targets.

  • Out-Bounder Remote Viewing.  In OBRV, a person called the beacon was sent out to an unknown location and the viewer would be tasked to determine the location and describe it.

From here Jeane moved on to training, and provided a list of trainers who teach remote viewing to newcomers.  Training is the part I find interesting, because it is the corner of this world which most clearly pings as a potential area of concern to me and a number of conversations I've had during the course of the day have confirmed there are wildly varying opinions in the world of RV as to how much training is truly required.  In John Herlosky's book "A Sorcerer's Apprentice:  A Skeptic's Journey Into the CIA's Project Star Gate", the author describes receiving a thousand of hours of instruction from former Star Gate member David Morehouse; a process which I can only imagine cost many thousands of dollars given that most RV courses start at around $1000.  It is not that I believe Morehouse's teachings have no value - aside from the fact there are varied opinions about the man in the RV community, I know nothing about him - but I am suspicious of any enterprise, be it educational or otherwise, which requires turning over the equivalent of a month's rent.

Though Jeane seems to believe training is important, she places a high value on simple practice, as seen in this text from her handout:

If your goal is to consistently view an unknown photograph with accuracy, it does not take long at all.  A short instructional period usually under associative remote viewing training and you will be able to view a simple target with consistency.  There are lots of applications for this ARV skill.  This is a good and worthy use of remote viewing.

"But," Jeane cautioned, "this is not all RV does."

If your goal is to consistently and proficiently remote view any in-depth target from missing person, archaeology sites, military special ops, etc, then some serious time, effort, devotion, training, and most importantly, "practice" will be required.

According to Jeane this is not unusual and it can be baffling when neophytes approach the field expecting to be able to excel right out of the box.

"Were you able to do high level math equations when you popped out?" she asked, smiling.  "No.  Training is required."

Jeane closed out her presentation with a brief remote viewing exercise, giving the audience a set of random coordinates and 4-5 minutes to record their impressions of what they thought the location might be.  This author managed to fail spectacularly in capturing, through sketch or written details, any part of the location, revealed to be Snoopy Rock near Sedona, Arizona.  Some of my neighbors, however, were much more successful and I took great pains to hide my worksheet from them, while congratulating their efforts out loud and cursing them under my breath. 

According to Jeane, "experience is the best teacher", so maybe there's hope for me yet.  That said, I still can't do high level math equations either, so maybe I shouldn't hold my breath.
