Upcoming Course

Saturday, June 2, 2018 | Orgonomic Science Event | Half-Day Laboratory Course | The Reich Blood Test | ACO Campus, Princeton NJ, 9:00AM to 1:00PM. $175 adult, non-student. $75 full-time student under 30 with valid student ID.

There are rare opportunities to learn and experience the art of natural scientific observation, which is why the American College of Orgonomy offers laboratory courses in orgonomic science. Our half-day courses are designed to present our students with an accessible portion of orgonomic knowledge. This year’s Laboratory Course on the Reich Blood Test at our campus in Princeton, NJ on Saturday, June 2, 2018 from 9:00AM to 1:00PM will provide an opportunity to observe living human blood through the microscope—a subject that has consistently moved and fascinated our lab students over the years.

The Reich Blood Test, developed by Wilhelm Reich, M.D., is a method for evaluating the energetic vitality of an individual by observing their living red blood cells (RBCs). This course will concentrate primarily on direct observation and hands-on work, with the students receiving instruction on laboratory and microscope technique and performing their own complete blood test on their individual microscopes.

If you are interested in learning more about the science of orgonomy and observing first-hand the orgonomic phenomena discovered by Dr. Wilhelm Reich, this course offers that unique and exciting opportunity. For more information and to request an application, call (732) 821-1144 or send an email to

The science of orgonomy has implications for all aspects of nature. Orgonomy was first developed by Wilhelm Reich (1897–1957), student and colleague of Sigmund Freud (1856–1939), the founder of psychoanalysis. Dr. Reich’s professional life began in psychoanalysis in the realm of unconscious emotions. His work, however, led him into progressively deeper and broader realms that organize into four basic areas: medical sciences, social sciences, biology and physics.

Numerous scientists have continued to research the vast field of orgonomy in all of its realms. Below are links to some articles from the Journal of Orgonomy that cover some of these theories in depth.

Reich’s Development of Orgonomy: After meeting Freud, Reich rapidly became active in many aspects of the psychoanalytic movement and was widely regarded as his most brilliant and promising student. From the very beginning of his work with Freud in the early 1920s and predating the work of Kinsey and Masters and Johnson by several decades, Reich was the first to delve closely into the subjective experiences of people’s sexuality.

Med Science

Medical orgonomy addresses the variety of emotional and physical illnesses that can occur when the free flow of energy becomes blocked in various areas of the human body.

Social Science

Social orgonomy is the study of bioenergetic functions that underlie interactions between living organisms. It is particularly concerned with the bioenergetic basis of healthy love and work relationships, and overcoming disturbances in them. It also addresses social systems, such as families and work organizations, and more broadly legal, economic and political systems that either support or interfere with productive work and genuine human connection.

Bio Science

Orgonomic biology is the study of basic energy functions in living organisms that underlie biological process, from the simplest level of a single-celled protozoa to the most complex organ systems in metazoans.

Physical Science

The understanding that comes from orgone physics shows that the universe is not just an infinite, empty space, but is filled with an “ocean” of mass free cosmic energy – the orgone. This energy can be scientifically studied and is the same energy that is the life force that flows through every living organism. Knowledge of how this energy functions in the physical realm has implications for understanding the formation of matter, preatomic chemistry, weather, galaxy formation and cosmology.
