Course Description


This course provides the catalyst for more lucid dreams, opening up new vistas of insight, creativity and healing. You’ll wake up to your waking life too as you unlock old energy patterns, igniting confidence, creativity, and vitality.

What exactly is a lucid dream?

A lucid dream is when you know you are dreaming while still in the confines of sleep. Beginner and advanced dreamers alike will benefit from this course as we address the major roadblocks to greater lucidity. You’ll be part of a nurturing community as you focus on your motivations for developing a sustainable lucid dreaming practice.

Why Lucid Dream?

Lucid dreaming has become a holy grail for many dreamers, and for good reason. . . when lucid, you have the ability to step into your power and actively participate in the mythic landscape of your imagination. You can take the path less traveled, or manifest a soulful intention out of thin air. You can fly, transform your dream body, and even directly ask the dream for guidance about your waking life.

You will learn how to focus your lucidity for rekindling creativity: for accessing luminous geometric mandalas, spontaneous poetry, musical soundscapes and mythic art. Or you can open up to healing imagery; as well as enter into deeply soulful conversation with ancestors and other powerful figures. We will also discuss the power of facing nightmares, and reclaiming safe places so you can be free from repetitive fears and start living a new story.


When: Live broadcasts once a week or watch the class recordings at your convenience.

Where: This is an ONLINE COURSE, so you can participate anywhere you have an internet connection.

Tuition: $79 ($69 for Rhine members or students enrolled in program at HCH or a degree program)

Course Description


This eight week academic course explores the phenomena and scientific evidence for energy healing and psychokinesis.  Some theories present these as different expressions of the same phenomena.  This proposal will be explored in this course.

Energy healing encompasses many techniques including laying on hands, reiki, qigong, healing touch, esoteric healing, and many, many more. Research on healing includes an observation of the phenomena and measurements of the effectiveness of these techniques on people, animals, plants and other organic matter. What does the scientific evidence indicate related to energy healing?

Psychokinesis, PK, or Mind-Matter-Interaction all describe the same phenomena.  Can people affect physical objects with only their thoughts or intentions?  This course will explore examples of macro and micro psychokinesis and discuss the scientific research that has been done to understand how these phenomena might work and what psychological factors might cause people to demonstrate PK.

This course will commit 4 weeks to each topic and explore the research and theories that discuss the nature of and evidence for energy healing and PK.  Weekly class broadcasts will be supplemented with on online discussion forum where students can chat about the topics, their own experiences, and the research studies discussed in the classes.

Course Description


Is the truth really out there?

Movies and TV shows like the Exorcist, Ghost, Stranger Things, The OA, and the X-Files all represent psychic phenomena and the paranormal with great insight and often engaging stories. Of course, many of the events in these shows are completely fictional, but some of the stories actually reflect real events or results that have been observed by parapsychologists! On the other hand, paranormal reality shows claim to present events and phenomena truthfully, but actually reflect a “reality” created by uninformed television producers.

This fun course will explore movies, TV (fictional and reality), and literature and separate the truth from fiction. It will explore how popular culture is influenced by psi experiences, beliefs, and misconceptions about the phenomena.  More importantly, it will explore how media representations of psi influence the public's beliefs in and about psi, even to the point of affecting how people experience psi events when they happen.

Course Description

How do native cultures view psi phenomena?

How do culture-based beliefs and folklore around healing and psychokinesis differ between places like China, Mexico, and the Australian Outback? Why are seers and clairvoyants accepted in some cultures but shunned by others, modern culture included? How are culture-bound/religion-bound magic, witchcraft, and sorcery beliefs related to psychic abilities and experiences?

This 8-week academic course will be a high level overview of the ideas and beliefs of psychic experiences, the human mind and spirit, and related areas (life after death, reincarnation, etc.) as those beliefs have been “seen” by anthropologists and parapsychologists around the world.  We will look at the possible instances of psi phenomena best reported in studies of divination, witchcraft and sorcery beliefs and practices, various cross cultural studies, modern beliefs in the occult and supernatural, and the application of psychic functioning in archaeology and anthropology.  From the parapsychological side, we will examine the ways culture affects belief, which in turn affects the psychic experience.


When: Live broadcasts once a week or watch the class recordings at your convenience.
