About: Durham County Library will present a panel discussion on the history and current work of the Rhine Research Center at 7 p.m. on Monday, December 2, at the Main Library, 300. N. Roxboro Street. The panel will include John Kruth, director of the Rhine Research Center; Dr. Sally Rhine Feather, executive director emeritus; Mara Bishop, an intuitive consultant; and former Rhine Center Board President, Dr. Larry Burk.

Dr. Joseph B. Rhine founded and became the director of Duke University’s Parapsychology Laboratory in 1935. Upon his retirement in 1965, Dr. Rhine formed an independent research center, the Foundation for Research on the Nature of Man (FRNM), in order to continue to explore his interest in extrasensory perception (ESP) and consciousness studies. The center was renamed the Rhine Research Center in 1995, and it continues to follow the founding mission to produce original research and explore the nature of human consciousness, psychic abilities, experiences, techniques and the culture of ESP throughout the world.
