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 describes a number of experiences involving the controversial Israeli psychic, Uri Geller, whom he has known since 1973 when he sponsored Geller’s first, major public appearance in the United States. He reviews personal accounts of psychokinetic metal bending, as well as research reports and comments by hostile critics. He concludes by urging viewers to give Geller the benefit of the doubt, noting that the history of shamanism shows that genuine psi conducive states are sometimes triggered by trickery.
