About the United States Psychotronics Association


The United States Psychotronics Association (USPA) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1975 to serve as a focal point for scientific and technical exploration of the universe of esoteric, spiritual, and psychic arts in the United States of America. The USPA has been hosting annual conferences for its membership since its formation and has featured countless individuals with cutting-edge viewpoints, research, or theories to share, allowing any interested persons to openly discuss their work. The annual conference also delivers a variety of additional resources for participants, including supplementary workshops and vendors offering the latest ideas and technology.

About Psychotronics

The USPA defines psychotronics as the science of mind-body-environment relationships, an interdisciplinary science concerned with the interactions of matter, energy, and consciousness. Psychotronics involves the study, research, and applications of the physics and technology of the mind, brain, spirit, consciousness, and the underlying forces of life and nature – hence the term “psychotronics”. We believe that a true understanding of the universe must include the spiritual, as well as, the technical, and provide an opportunity for amateur researchers to present their findings along with the professionals. We stress research, with documentation of results, and practical applications, rather than personal experience and unsupported hypotheses.


Here is an introduction to Psychotronics prepared by Dr. Beverly Rubik.


What is Psychotronics?

Beverly Rubik, Ph.D.

President, USPA

Psychotronics originally referred to the mind (psycho) operating devices (tron) with thought. This term came out of parapsychology in the 1960s in Czechoslovakia. The early psychotronics researchers conceived of and built psychotronic generators—sacred geometrical forms composed of pyramids and cones along with crystals, copper coils, and other materials. Unlike most machines, these devices were “operator dependent”--having various effects depending upon the operator and the directed intention--and demonstrated positive effects on people, animals, plants, and processes.

Today our interests are more broadly based. The USPA investigates and applies science and technology to interactions of mind, matter, spirit, consciousness, and the underlying forces of life and nature.  Psychotronics challenges the dominant scientific worldview because it deals with the power of consciousness to interact directly with the physical world, which is not considered in mainstream science. However, numerous lines of scientific and other evidence point to severe limitations of the dominant paradigm, which holds that consciousness is only a passive observer. We are among those mavericks shaping the new worldview in which consciousness plays an active role in generating physical reality.

Our membership is quite diverse and fascinating. Some USPA members are frontier scientists conducting research on the effects of intention and subtle energy healing on systems such as structured water and its memory, plant growth, and the integrity of DNA. We are also concerned about the impact of electromagnetic pollution from the proliferation of wireless devices in our environment and how to protect ourselves. Other members are practitioners and teachers of radionics, using directed intention to assess and improve the well-being of living systems through the use of radionics devices, pendulums, and dowsing rods. Still others practice energy therapies ranging from hands-on healing to use of sound and light therapies, homeopathy, Oriental medicine, and other complementary modalities. Some members are skilled intuitives who can assess the biofield and subtle energy directly, without any tools. Still others are exploring psychotronics for personal growth and evolution. Despite our differences, we have much in common as we are all open-minded persons focused on expanding our understanding of nature, consciousness, and the full human potential. We enjoy camaraderie and sharing our new learning with one another.

One main focus of the USPA is the existence of a cosmic energy or bioenergy, also called qi in Oriental medicine and prana in Ayurveda—associated with the biofield or life force.  Energy may be mobilized with directed intention, which corresponds to the principle of ancient Eastern philosophy—“where mind goes, the qi flows.”  Psychotronics devices may serve as resonators or conduits of a cosmic energy affecting living systems at a physical level. The biofield, the energy field of each organism, is also fundamental.

Is this cosmic energy an aspect of science that has somehow been overlooked, or a new form of energy? We are taking a deeper look at the science of Nikola Tesla, among other pioneering scientists, who have been largely ignored. We are also revisiting the “aether” in physics that was displaced by a materialistic worldview, but may actually be the quintessence underlying physical reality, and the etheric body in radionics, to expand the scientific perspective.

The theme of our 40th annual conference is, “Mind, Matter, and Aether: Applications to Radionics.” Recently I had a conversation with Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove about the event, which he produced into a short video: https://youtu.be/hR8APqBbgCg   Dr. Mishlove, a parapsychologist, who is also an invited speaker at our event, spoke with me about his upcoming presentation in another short video: https://youtu.be/iWkREIpYTmI. Our 2018 conference features 20 speakers, with more invited speakers than ever before and promises to be one of our best.  All are welcome to attend. We look forward to seeing you there!
