Parapsychology at the Rhine Research CenterwithJohn Kruth

Books Mentioned In This Interview

John G. Kruth is the Executive Director of the Rhine Research Center and the founder of the Rhine Education Center. He has been studying parapsychology informally for over 35 years, and has been a formal member of the Rhine research team since 2009. His research has included studies related to energetic healing methods, bioenergy signatures, out-of-body experiences, qualitative case studies, mind-matter interaction, and poltergeist phenomena.

Here he shares some of the history of Joseph Banks and Louisa Rhine as they developed the science of parapsychology. He describes the early years at Duke University, the subsequent establishment of the Foundation for Research on the Nature of Man, and eventually the Rhine Research Center. Struggles involved both challenges from critics and issues of addressing fraud. Today, Kruth is engaged in research concerning biophotons and their potential relation to healing and other types of psi activity.
