InPresence host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). For many years he served as president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people were supported and encouraged in developing inner intuitive abilities.

Here he discusses the life and work of psychiatrist Wilhelm Reich, who is widely regarded as having introduced the importance of the human body into the field of psychotherapy. Reich died in a federal prison in 1957 after having been convicted of medical malpractice and diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic. However, he was a very important cultural and scientific figure. Today, the Journal of Organomy publishes research articles based upon his theories.
