Doing a remote viewing outbounder experiment is easy. A “beacon” team made up of one or more people goes to an undisclosed target location (or “site”) while the remote viewer stays behind. At an agreed-upon time, the viewer homes in mentally on the beacon team to find and perceive the target site. This isn’t done with telepathy. The “beacon” only serves as a marker to help the viewer find the target.
In the classic outbounder, when the viewer is done and the specified time period ended, the beacon team returns and then together the team and the viewer return to the target site so that the viewer have immediate, first-person feedback. Outbounders are fun—and often profound—remote viewing experiences.
At every IRVA remote viewing conference we host an outbounder remote viewing experience. But instead of a single remote viewer, there is a whole roomful of them. Of course, once you have completed your viewer, it’s usually not possible to take everyone to the target site for in-person feedback. Instead, the beacon team will bring back photos and videos of their visit to the target location, and these will be displayed for all the viewers to see while the outbound team gives their report. In the past we have had audience members score precise “hits,” and nearly everyone gets some perceptions that convince them they have in fact remote viewed the target. We are sure that Psi Fest this August will be no different! Join us for this fun and satisfying remote viewing experience.
