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

Training & Education Overview

Training and public education have been vital core functions of the ACO since its inception in 1968. We currently have training programs in medical orgonomy and social orgonomy and a variety of public education programs.

The ACO is the only organization in the world that has an active comprehensive, in-depth Medical Orgonomy Training Program. For over 40 years we have been training physicians in orgone therapy in its basic form as developed by Dr. Wilhelm Reich. Our “Advanced Technical Seminar” is, in fact, historically a direct continuation of the “technical seminar” of the Vienna Psychoanalytic Society run by Wilhelm Reich starting in 1924 in which he developed character analysis.

In 2001 we instituted the Social Orgonomy Training Program to offer training in the application of orgonomic principles within the social realm to clinically oriented practitioners in fields such as psychology, social work, nursing, marital and family therapy, or organizational development, as well as to others who are not engaged in providing therapy but may apply the knowledge of social orgonomy in a wide range of fields such as those who work as teachers, administrators, politicians, writers, businesspeople, attorneys, managers, etc.

The cornerstone requirement of all of our training is that the trainees need to be in personal training therapy. We believe that it is not possible as a medical orgonomist to help someone with their emotions unless the therapist has overcome problems he or she has that would interfere with tolerating the emotions that come up in the patient in a therapy session. Likewise anyone working with relationships in the social realm must have addressed problems in making contact in order to help others improve their capacity for contact.

Over the years we have also offered, sponsored or participated in a variety of public education programs. These have included college and university courses, half-day seminars, and directed reading courses, as well as all-day conferences on a variety of general and specific topics in orgonomy. For many years the College held private scientific presentations by invitation only but in 1989 we began scientific conferences open to the public that occurred regularly until 2007. Since December 2006 we have had an ongoing, four-times-a-year public social orgonomy presentation series on a wide variety of subjects ranging from the bioenergetic principles of love, family, and work relationships to various aspects of human destructiveness and the emotional plague, as well as from communication confusion in our electronic age to the impact of mother-infant bonding and our ability to love. We also offer a Laboratory Workshop in Orgonomic Science open to the public, which is planned for Summer 2011.
