Dr. Simeon Hein received his Ph. D. in sociology from Washington State University in 1993 and is the author of Opening Minds: A Journey of Extraordinary Encounters, Crop Circles, and Resonance (Mount Baldy Press, Inc., 2002). His dissertation focused on the role of technology in social and economic change, specifically how technology can destroy information and interfere with natural evolutionary processes. A former sociology teacher, he now runs the non-profit Institute for Resonance in Boulder, CO: an organization he founded in 1997 that specializes in instructing people in the art of Resonant Viewing, the scientific study of crop circles, and other subtle-energy phenomena. He first learned remote viewing at the Farsight Institute in Atlanta in 1996 and has also studied with government-trained viewers. His website, which is devoted to the study of subtle-energy sciences, is www.OpeningMinds.info. Since the publication of Opening Minds, Dr. Hein has participated in more than 225 radio and TV interviews. In 2006 he published Planetary Intelligence: 101 Easy Steps to Energy, Well-Being, and Natural Insight (Mount Baldy Press, Inc.). In 2017, he published Black Swan Ghosts: A sociologist encounters witnesses to unexplained aerial craft, their occupants, and other elements of the multiverse (Mount Baldy Press, Inc.).
